Not so RED that they truly embrace free market capitalism.

At least not when the capital comes from China.

Perhaps if they could build Dolly World II in Shanghai?

Wow.

I had to listen to the ad twice. I lost it when he said our God-given mountains and the red Chinese.

Considering the high level of pollution western capital has produced in China, I would think this turnabout would be fair play.

At least in the crazy world of unfettered capitalism.

Ha! Yes, it would be. The state that I live in has key players that are going over to China frequently in the last couple of years. I would think those type of ads would come with repercussions.

Wow. This is disgusting.

Destroying the mountains so we can burn coal & destroy the planetary climate system.

Insanity.

And leave it to right wing wackos to object only when those foreign communists do it. Only we can engage in this stupidity I guess.

LOL

In the spirit of free market capitalism, they will just move operations to a competing State that will let them blow the tops off their mountains.

Virginia anyone? They'll even kick in a tax break.....................:)

Makes me glad we don't have a lot of mountains in Michigan, but they are already fracking the shit out of us.

They will always find a way to destroy and put profits over people.

A little related entertainment
