Oh dear,
The "master" wishes you to just buy more stuff from the communist Chinese
government.  They need the money to buy the weapons for their military so
they can expand their brand of "World domination".  The communists believe
that you will love them and all they do for you, like charm bracelets made
of lead to sell to your children at the dollar stores and tooth paste
containing anti freeze. And remember the finest people (investors) who
believe that all that glitters is gold are making a killing on selling you
China's bad dream come true. Forget about a local economy based on respect
and sustainability - that's for people who don't want to help the less
fortunate - which by the way is what we are all becoming by buying into the
lies and deception put forth by those who brought us this particular flavor
of old style aristocratic bull-tinky.

Master or Slave = boycott or buy.

I hope Google gets this out far and wide.

American film crew kept from China protests
(CNN) -- Chinese authorities sequestered an American film crew in their
hotel rooms so they would not see 
anti-government protests outside a Buddhist temple last week, a member of
the crew said.
Monks leave a ceremony at the Labrang Monastery in Xiahe, China, on Friday.
Spence Palermo, an American working on a freelance documentary about how
China is changing, said his crew was prevented 
from returning to the centuries-old Labrang Monastery in Xiahe, China, after
spending several days filming inside the 
complex. Newsweek magazine reported Monday that as many as 4,000 monks and
laypersons clashed with police near the 
monastery Friday and Saturday. The report said they marched to Xiahe "where
they pelted government offices and police 
vehicles with rocks and debris." The Xiahe protests were part of a wave of
anti-Chinese protests centered in nearby 
Tibet, an autonomous province of China taken over by the Communist
government in Beijing almost 60 years ago.
According to the U.S. State Department, Beijing's "repressive social and
political controls continued to limit the 
fundamental freedoms of Tibetans and risked undermining Tibet's unique
cultural, religious, and linguistic heritage."

Boycotting the Olympics because of China's crackdown on Tibet?
FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

China has been hoping to boost its image in the eyes of the world as it gets
ready to host the Summer Olympics in 
Beijing, but the Chinese government's crackdown on protesters in Tibet is
not helping.

What began a week ago as mostly peaceful protests by monks has spiraled into
violent clashes, with Tibetans attacking 
the Chinese and burning their businesses. The Chinese government is now
vowing to protect its territory and issued a 
midnight deadline that's now passed for protesters to either surrender or
face harsh consequences.

There are reports of Chinese authorities parading handcuffed Tibetan
prisoners in the capital of Lhasa. Chinese police 
are going house-to-house checking id cards and residence permits. The
Chinese government puts the death toll at 16, with 
dozens injured. But the Dalai Lama's exiled government says 80 people have
been killed.

Meanwhile, the protests that started in Tibet have spilled into three
neighboring provinces and even to Beijing. And 
sympathy protests are also going on around the world.

China insists the violence won't harm the upcoming Olympic games. The U.S.
has called on China to show restraint.

However, it's getting support from who else but Russia - another beacon of
human rights. The Russian government says it 
hopes China will take "all necessary measures to stop illegal actions." It
adds that any efforts to boycott the Olympics 
are "unacceptable."

Olympic officials also say they are opposed to a boycott because of the
violence in Tibet.
