PULLEAZE do not get us into a partnership with China. It looks as bad as if we were in a partnership with Iran! Given the lack of freedom, the human rights abuses, the criminal government ( why do you think so many Chinese nationals have moved HERE???), we look like we are supporting their immorality and criminality by having any sort of partnership with any place in China! DO NOT DO THIS!!!

China doesn't even care if they poison their own children, much less ours. Have a conscience, PULLEAZE!
