Shade Comments on China, Hong Kong Responses

June 17th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Calling China’s handling and response to COVID-19 “irresponsibile” – Allegany County Commissioners President Jake Shade said Thursday that drastic measures need to be introduced- and the county has developed a number of recommendations to work toward that end. Three of the proposals can be handled at the local government level while one would require state action. Topping the list is a request to the Maryland State Retirement and Pension System to discontinue it’s practice of heavily investing in Chinese companies…

Another  recommendation focuses on the residents of Hong Kong who have been subject to increasing restrictions on basic freedoms by the Chinese Government. Shade says county governments should make clear that they stand with Hong Kong against oppressive tactics and commit to working with the State Department in helping those citizens resettle in local communities…

        Maybe we should punish China by eliminating the Chinese language program in our schools. It would make some our board of ed members very happy.

    There is an old saying that comes to mind. Something about sitting in a Glass House and throwing rocks.

    China is our biggest threat. I’d like to see how much money we have invested in those companies.
