Mainland opposes external intervention on Taiwan make your wristbandsquestion

Pattyfest: A West Virginia Old-Time Music Festival Even though Christmas is more than 7 months away, and is one of the furthest things from most Long Islanders" minds, but this cold and dreary weather this week has me thinking of happier times while wearing a sweater... Enjoy a historic weekend by visiting the Lynchburg Museum, Poplar Forest, the National D-Day Memorial or the Museum of the Confederacy. Hit the road to Williamsburg, Jamestown or Washington, D.C. if you want to get away. If you enjoy music why not head for a bandshell or other outdoor festival wristbands. If you love to dance you could hit the local clubs, or find a band or artist around the town that you haven"t yet heard. Many restaurants also offer entertainment in their bar areas. Change the music that you listen to, get out and experience many different types of music; jazz, blues, long-hair, big band, singer-songerwriter, pop, rock....keep it interesting. But what about when the leadership is all Lefties, as are 89% of the Press Corps? Well, we"ll just have to wait and see, won"t we? Wasn"t Ann Coulter briefly banned from NBC last week? Why? Because, according to a statement released by an NBC executive minion, "We can"t have her on our network running down President Obama." (I paraphrased) Can one imagine NBC saying the same of any major Democrat pundit when it comes to criticizing a Republican president? Yeah, when monkeys fly outta my ass!

BEIJING -- The Chinese mainland firmly opposes any external intervention on the Taiwan question which concerns the country"s core interests, a mainland spokesperson said Wednesday.

Ma Xiaoguang, spokesperson with the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, made the comment at a press conference, in response to the passage of two US military vessels through the Taiwan Straits on Jan 24.

"We have the resolve, confidence and ability to safeguard China"s sovereignty and territorial integrity," Ma said.

When asked to comment on the Democratic Progressive Party"s (DPP) recent behavior of trying to seek foreign intervention and professing that the mainland had "suppressed and dwarfed" Taiwan, Ma said Taiwan"s DPP administration had constantly fanned hostility across the Straits, obstructed exchanges and cooperation between people on the two sides, and undermined the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations.

"The DPP has put the rights and interests of people from Taiwan at stake only for its own ends," Ma said.

Proposed ban on mainland sci-tech products in Taiwan to harm both sides: spokesperson

A Chinese mainland spokesperson said Wednesday that the ban proposed by the Taiwan administration on mainland sci-tech products would be harmful to both sides of the Taiwan Straits.

"With the increasingly close cross-Straits economic and trade exchanges, the move will not only harm the interests of mainland enterprises, but also consumers and many manufacturers in the supply chain in Taiwan, thus affecting Taiwan"s own economic development," said Ma Xiaoguang with the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council at a press conference.

"Such a practice of creating gaps and harming the rights and interests of the people of Taiwan is unpopular."

Ma made the comments when responding to Taiwan administration"s intention to publish a list of mainland sci-tech companies that it considers as a possible threat. The administration said it would ban relevant mainland products and update the list constantly.

"We firmly oppose such practices by the Democratic Progressive Party administration that undermine normal cross-Straits economic and trade cooperation, for political purposes," he said, adding that the mainland would pay close attention to the issue.
