Greetings from Tromaville!
As a follow up to Lloyd Kaufman’s recent essay on The Huffington Post, “It’s Not Me, It’s You: My Break Up With China”, Uncle Lloydie’s own creation, THE TOXIC AVENGER, has provided a support video. Echoing Lloyd’s incisive opinions on the Chinese film industry and the humanitarian issues plaguing China, here is President Toxie’s Oval Office Address!
To further illustrate the fact that China is heading in the wrong direction, please read this recent article from The Wall Street Journal: “China’s New Tool for Social Control: A Credit Rating for Everything”
Tune in next week when Lloyd Kaufman shares his opinions on Net Neutrality. Until then, have a Shpadoinkle Day!
