Chairman Zero appeases the Chinese
I'm sure you've all seen this picture of the Dali Lama being unceremoniously escorted out the white house service entrance. Whether you keep up with Buddhists or not, the Dali Lama is one of the world's leading religious figures and deserves respectful treatment for that position. But our creditors, the Chinese loathe the Dali Lama for stirring up the local monks for Tibetan independence from China.
You see, Chairman Zero wants to appear to be inclusive by meeting with the Dali Lama but, having been cautioned like an impudent school boy, by the Chinese, he doesn't want to upset the people who hold a ton of our debt. So he meets with the Dali and then scoots him out the back door with a wink and a nod to the Chinese as if to say, "Hey fellas, you know I was just doing it for appearances. See, I'm making him leave by the same door we take out the trash? Please don't call in our debt right now before the midterms.....puhleeeeese."
It's embarrassing and a disgrace that our President would treat a peaceful religious leader like a second-class citizen.....disgraceful!
