I truly wish I could read and believe the Washington Compost, but sadly I do not. Most of what they write is steeped in political bias. I’m not commenting on the veracity of this article because I’m not educated on the details. However, this dynamic is the byproduct of extreme bias in media. Large swaths of the country and the world simply don’t believe what they write. As they say, “Democracy dies in the darkness.” Indeed it does. The media casts more shade than any politician ever could.

The REAL THREAT is SWIRE management at CX.

The Washington Post. The personal mouthpiece of Jeff Bezos, and a fully signed up member of the Democratic Party of the USA. Even my parrot wouldn't want that rag in the bottom of his cage.

Clear your washingtonpost cookies if it won't let you see the article.
You can also read the WP on press reader if you feel so inclined.

You say that like it's a bad thing?? You'd need rocks in your head to admit you're a "full signed up member of the republican party" surely?

I prefer my 'news' to come from the personal mouthpieces of Rupert Murdoch. I know they are 100% factual, so I trust them implicitly.

STP and Slezy. I suggest staying in bed on Nov 3rd. At least you'll already be in place after you've taken all the pills you'll both be needing that day :-)

No, I'm just fine, thanks for asking. How are you, you seem a bit angry and stressed out? Are you ok?

No threat! Nothing to see here in Hong Kong. Look at Trump... He’s the real tyrant, just ask the mainstream media or the DNC (one and the same). Group think abounds. Hypocrisy reigns. All of life is irony. Whatever you accuse someone else of is most likely what you are doing yourself. Almost never fails.

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz activated the state's national guard troops on Thursday at the request of the mayors of Minneapolis and nearby St Paul, declaring the situation a "peacetime emergency".
He said the looting, vandalism and arson of a night earlier had resulted in damage to many businesses, including ones owned by minorities.

Interesting maybe we should press for sanctions

I think this article is pertinent to the state of HK today....and reflects where many foreign based business are headed in the "new" HK. I might direct your attention to the comments about the "HSBC people" (...fiercly tribal and regional in their mindset...!) who sound remarkably like the Swires. It won't end well...for either group.
