Here's a question.....

 

Are shootings becoming more common in the States than they were say... fifty years ago? or even twenty years for that matter?

 

I don't mean things like a drunk shooting his wife in a fit of rage or a liquor store holdup gone wrong, I mean incidents like at Nevada, where some nutter decides to kill as many people as possible. Mass shootings.

 

It seems to me like they're happening more and more but I don't know if that's just because the age of the internet has made international news more accessible or if it's a new trend.

 

If it is a sick new trend in society let's just hope the feckers don't start making mustard gas or something in their basements and releasing that in crowded places.

And there's another story of a college loser in Oklahoma (OU) threaten by texts to shoot up a bar but fortunately the girl that received the texts alerted the police.

It's being called Biden's "unofficial delegation" to Taiwan, and is led by the following Americans:

  • * former Senator Chris Dodd
  • * former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and
  • * former US Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg
  •  

    "The selection of these three individuals - senior statesmen who are longtime friends of Taiwan and personally close with President Biden - sends an important signal about the US commitment to Taiwan and its democracy," a US statement said.

  • The PLA combat exercises come a day after China's air force sent a whopping 25 military aircraft to breach Taiwan's airspace in the 'largest ever' such breach.  

 

These 3 US statesmen don't qualify fo Z visa ... am just guessing ...

The Chinese carrier is seen a few thousand meters away... surprise

 

 

  

According to the key quote, "In the photo, Commander Briggs looks very relaxed with his feet up watching the Liaoning ship just a few thousand yards away, while his deputy is also sitting beside him, showing they take their PLA counterparts lightly," Lu Li-shih, recently of Taiwan’s Naval Academy in Kaohsiung, commented to the SCMP.

"You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet: The Digital Yuan Can Be Turned Off Like A Light Switch"teaser image

"If you think that the United States has a lot of power through our Treasury sanctions authorities, you ain’t seen nothing yet."

 

While China's digital yuan will have an uphill climb in seeking to dethrone the dollar as a global reserve currency - despite Beijing's protests that it has no such ambitions - as it’s an electronic version of a currency nobody wants (for now), the new currency will allow Beijing to weaponize its currency response to its every growing roster of trade partners. As Bloomberg details, instead of challenging U.S. dollar dominance and neutralizing sanctions, "the digital yuan appears potentially more geopolitically significant as leverage over multinational companies and governments that want access to China’s 1.4 billion consumers. Since China has the ability to monitor transactions involving the digital currency, it may be easier to retaliate against anyone who rebuffs Beijing on sensitive issues like Taiwan, Xinjiang and Hong Kong."

“If you think that the United States has a lot of power through our Treasury sanctions authorities, you ain’t seen nothing yet,” Matt Pottinger, former U.S. deputy national security adviser in the Trump administration, said last week at a hearing of the government-backed U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. “That currency can be turned off like a light switch."

It's always good that politicians can not understand unintended consequences, defund the police and gun sales soar in black communities and my gun stocks in retirement just keep climbing and ammunition triples in price. Good times.

A: You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yours
A:You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yourself. The same conditions for all foreigners apply. You have a job and the company can legally employ foreigners. Work permit is tied to that company and location that you are actually working and the position matches. You can't just work in China if you hold a dependence visa or residence permit.  -- jmintzis
