Linky Links

Stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share.

- Matt Taibbi looks back at 2020

- The Bill is Coming Due for China's "Capitalist" Experiment. China only recognizes enemies or underlings. There are no friends. The West must realize this.

- On a probably related note - Chinese billionaires and CEO's keep disappearing in "state sanctioned kidnappings"

- And on an absolutely related note - Alibaba founder Jack Ma, China's richest man, is missing

- Big rock fan but the best album on this list is probably Carole King's Tapestry (HT Steve Landry)

- Very sad news - my heart goes out to Vin Scully


  1. Matt Taibbi is a good writer and very observant. He is also remarkably balanced in his views. Thanks for the link.

    Maybe some of the disappearing Chinese moguls have looked behind the curtain, and that is why they are missing?

  2. Xi is showing the world who is in charge in China but is the world paying attention? We need to decouple or let US businesses know they are doing business with China at their own risk.
