    Short version? Some 49 year old guy in Omaha with zero knowledge of global politics had a job working as the nighttime Social Media Manager for Marriott. Part of his job is scouring sites and "liking" posts that refer to Marriott in a positive light.

    Backstory: Mariott's site promoted locations in China, Tibet, Maucau, Hong Kong and Taiwan. A political group that wants a free Tibet sarcastically tweeted something "congratulating" Marriott for recognizing Tibet separately. Our poor schmuck "liked" it via the official Marriott account.



    China was furious. They completely down reservations at all the Marriott locations in China. Of course, Marriott immediately "fixed" their website and apologized profusely. They shut down all their social media accounts for a week, but that wasn't enough to placate China. China demanded that Marriott fire everyone involved. But the people who wrote the website were spared - it was just the low-level poor dumb bastard that hit "Like" that got terminated.

    Tell me again how Russia is the problem?
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    China is the model for crony socialists. They really are efficient at maintaining power. If only the DNC could gain the same power as the CCP.

    I forgot to mention that Twitter is banned in China.

    Ah, the DNC is ahead of the CCP in that regard, as the DNC allies control and censor Twitter. Perhaps Twitter could enter into the same relationship in China? They could set up a localized Twitter and hire CCP political officers to ensure correct think.
