He Who Pays the Piper

A little hunk of China in southeastern Michigan.

The juicy part:

Milan Township residents said they take no umbrage with the prospect of new neighbors, but they are disturbed about what they see as a level of secrecy surrounding the project.

They also said they are upset at the perception of a “members-only” community in the middle of their hometown.

“When they give the image to you as a community that, ‘We have our own place,’ it’s saying that ‘We (the newcomers) don’t have to participate in your community,'” said Jean Early, 76, a retired secretary.

Civil rights and fair housing laws?

Screw that.  He who pays the piper calls the tune.  Beijing paid for those U.S. Attorneys that enforce civil rights and fair housing laws!  They would no more enforce them against our new colonial masters than you would expect a toaster you buy to toast you.  Also, don’t look for John Danforth to say a peep.

More:

The program works like this: Would-be immigrants can obtain a green card if they invest $1 million and create at least 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers within a period designated by the federal immigration and citizenship agency.

“Qualifying U.S. workers.”  That leaves a lot open to interpretation.  Meaning those “qualifying U.S. workers” won’t look like you and me.

The project comes as Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder tries to court Chinese investors to boost Michigan’s economy and create jobs. Snyder visited China last year and met with the country’s next president, Vice President Xi Jinping, in Iowa on Feb. 15.

Again, don’t blame me, I endorsed Mike Cox.

I wonder if there will be gay marriage in this Chinatown.
