Gottschalks Going Commie?

Maybe, according to this news report. If that Chinese company buys it, they may not have to liquidate.

Then again, there's no mention of what Shandong plans on doing with the stores if they do end up buying them. You can't help but feel a bit suspicious of the Chinese after they way they seemed to have taken the money and run with Evergreen Pulp.


I suppose I'll be happy for any Gottschalks employees that might get to keep their jobs, but I'll still be concerned over more and more of the country falling into Chinese hands.

As an aside, I first heard about this yesterday on the Times- Standard web site as breaking news. Got up today expecting to see it on the T-S front page but it wasn't there. Finally saw mention of it in the business section but couldn't find that mention on their web site.

Maybe this isn't all that important of a news story? Maybe it happens all the time?

American leaders have been "doing business" with the Chinese for many years now.

American consumers have built up the Chinese economy and torn down the American economy by buying Chinese products instead of American products.

So if you want to ferret out the traitors who have sold our nation to the Communist Chinese, you won't have to look very far.

Just look to all those Americans who scoffed when we asked them to "Buy American."

And don't forget to look for the elitists of both Parties who pushed for trade agreements that protected capital and intellectual property rights but did nothing to prevent a "race to the bottom" in environmental and labor standards.

There's something funny about calling the Chinese "commies" when the news story is about a private Chinese COMPANY buying another private COMPANY.

Communism? You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.

Actually, I believe I only used it once. Your point is well taken, though. It is an ironic situation.

Your headline might as well read:"General Motors going commie" since obama has seen fit to force government control onto private companies to further the progressive agenda of taking over our country.

Actually, the article was quite clear in stating that the Chinese company interested in buying Gottschalks was government owned.
