Why would anyone try to interfere with our blogs? We are small fry, folks, so leave us be…
Visalia, CA 93277, 10-19-2019 Saturday: Good morning, friends, welcome to the weekend edition of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day. You know…life could be so much simpler if we decided NOT to bash the Chinese and the halo of corruption and intimidation that swirls around their heads and would become corrupt ourselves, accept their so-called ‘book deals’[i] and become their biggest cheerleaders. I guess if we signed on and committed such a disreputable act, we could each have a book in the homes of every Chinese citizen AND gulag inmate and if we made $5-$10 a pop per book, wow, can you imagine how wealthy we all would be? We could live in some of those empty Chinese ghost cities in penthouse apartments.
IMAGINE WHAT WE COULD DO AS FAR AS PERSONAL AND BUSINESS WEALTH IS CONCERNED IF WE SUCCUMBED TO THE OVERTURES FROM 'ABROAD,' MEANING THE PRC, SEEKING TO BESTOW BOOK CONTRACTS UPON US ALL FOR THE SUBMISSION OF AN 'IDEA.' WOW. YET, WE WON'T SELL OUR COUNTRY OUT AND IF INTERFERENCE CONTINUES AS IT HAS, WE HAVE NO PROBLEM ALERTING THE FBI...
[i] Various among us have received text messages from out of the blue promising us ‘book deals’ for the mere submission of a storyline and with nothing else. Now, we are not stupid, there is only one entity doing something like this and that entity most likely is the MSS, the Chinese Ministry for State Security. They are trying to buy us off and will give us a ‘book deal’ with most likely whatever ‘book’ we produce being on the must-read list of every citizen in China. We could become fabulously wealthy but to accept a scam like this would mean we would have to impose silence upon ourselves when it comes to discussing China. Not going to happen.
