Default How far we've fallen...

Just lovely.
NEW YORK — New York's iconic Empire State Building will light up red and yellow Wednesday in honor of the 60th anniversary of communist China.
The Chinese consul, Peng Keyu, and other officials will take part in the lighting ceremony which will bathe the skyscraper in the colors of the People's Republic until Thursday, Empire State Building representatives said in a statement.
The upper sections of the building are regularly illuminated to mark special occasions, ranging from all blue to mark "Old Blue Eyes" Frank Sinatra's death in 1998 to green for the annual Saint Patrick's Day.
Just last week the tower turned bright red.
However, that was not to mark some other communist achievement, but the 70th anniversary of the film "The Wizard of Oz" in which Dorothy wears ruby slippers rather than the silver of the original L. Frank Baum novel.

And I, for one, welcome our new flying monkey overlords. (Referring, of course, to the Wizard of Oz.)

The Chinese flag was supposed to fly on the whitehouse lawn too. I hear they flew it across the street after protests. Why are we asskissing these guys? We shoudl be paying off our debts to them and telling them to take a hike.

Red for Wizard of Oz...didn't anyone SEE the movie?

Green! Shoes are red, buildings are green, New Yorkers are morons.

And Iran should learn a valuable lesson from this: you can do anything you damn well please to your people. Kill them in the street, give nukes to madmen, anything.

As long as you give us money.

Why are you people so rascally insensitive? Do you not realize the immense contributions the Chinese have made to our society over the centuries? Not to mention all the Obama debt they are holding / will be humbly asked to hold over the next few decades?

Cant we just realize that the Chinese are a major player in our "economic" recovery?

...or do you really think that Americans will suddenly start paying their mortgages, saving money, and not going into debt until the country is broke [again]?

You people need to realize that the Chinese are bailing our asses out..and in all honesty we should be flying the Chinese flag on your home in appreciation.
