Marathon Speeches

Those silly Communists and their loooooong speeches.

Some call Xi Jinping a Chinese Putin. Others a 21st-century Mao.

On Wednesday morning he was China’s Hugo Chávez, testing his comrades’ eyelids – and their bladders – with a three-and-a-half hour, 65-page sermon in which he outlined his brave new vision for the Communist party, and the world.

“The Chinese dream is a dream about history, the present and the future,” Xi declared towards the end of his unexpectedly long-winded address to the opening of China’s 19th party congress. By the conclusion of this eastern answer to Aló Presidente! more than a few of Xi’s audience appeared to have entered a dreamlike state.

    Typical liberal…they know best and will lecture you endlessly about every living cell involved in your life.

    What drudgery liberalism is….


  2. Le Roi du Nord

    Teddy Roosevelt was known for his marathon speeches. Was he a liberal, too?

  3. Kevin Scheunemann

    Tha might be the dumbest Red Herring in the history of Red Herrings.

    TR never spoke as long as this communist thug.

    TR believed in freedom, this thug believes in suppression, state control, and slavery.

    I am not surprised you skew the subject because you love heavy handed central government on almost every level.

  4. Major Booris

    TR also believed in corporate and environmental regulations, progressive income tax rates, the inheritance tax, and the expansion of the federal bureaucracy.

    “We wish to control big business so as to secure among other things good wages for the wage-workers and reasonable prices for the consumers. Wherever in any business the prosperity of the businessman is obtained by lowering the wages of his workmen and charging an excessive price to the consumers we wish to interfere and stop such practices.”

    -Theodore Roosevelt, address to the National Convention of the Progressive Party, 1912

    Your total disregard for historical fact is catching up to you.  While you wallow in willful ignorance, the truth seekers of the world move forward..

    Major:  Love the quote, especially the “lowering wages” part.  How timely with the current assault on working folks.

  6. Paul

    Personal attacks.

    86 the troll

    Given your open rejection as Christianity, and liberal policy advocacy, hardly qualifies you as a “truth seeker.”

    That would be your biggest lie to date.

  8. Le Roi du Nord


    Rejection of organized religion, especially the intolerant and narrow-minded type you espouse, surely qualifies me as a truth seeker.  How is that 6000 YO earth proof going?  Please share some details with all of us .

  9. Kevin Scheunemann

    Intolerant of God in favor of your narrow, corrupted, world view…yes, that first thing I look for in a truth seeker….to disqualify them!

  10. Le Roi du Nord


    You have it all wrong, I don’t condemn others for their beliefs, but rather for what they try to force onto others as the absolute truth as you do.  I take a pretty broad view of things, whereas you are hidebound to a narrow and intolerant ideology.   Now how is your attempt to prove the world is 6000 years old coming along?  Show your work.
