US Government creating distractions

 The US Government is failing miserably in human rights. We are witnessing an unprecedented time of civil unrest, almost weekly mass shootings, high unemployment, homelessness, and over 500,000 dead due to the government lies about the seriousness of COVID-19. We also have a dysfunctional government with representatives acting like spoiled two-year old's.

Instead of tackling our human rights problems the US Government wants to distract us by focusing on Xinjiang and creating a story about poor treatment of its citizens. I for one am skeptical. I was in Xinjiang about two years ago, and yes, the security was tight, but we were able to visit freely and there was no sign of unrest or so-called camps. It was a much safer place to be than almost any city in the US.

On the other hand I do know for a fact that the US Government will falsify information and stir up unrest in other countries all in the name of spreading democracy. Think about our invasion of Iraq and how it was based on lies. How many Muslims died because of false intelligence?

The truth is that people with power (and money) have woken up to the fact that while we've been bogged down killing Muslim men, women, and children and creating instability in the middle East to control their oil, China has been prospering economically by advancing peaceful trade with other countries. China is also advancing in their technology at a faster rate and will surpass the US in the next few years, if not sooner.

The US Government needs a plan to stop spreading lies and work together with China. We need to have healthy competition instead of  more "they are the enemy" lies. Working together would create prosperity for both of our countries and add some stability to the world and maybe our leaders could focus on taking care of its own citizens.

Pelosi: China for decades waged campaign to destroy Tibet’s proud culture, history.

 The headline read: 

"China for decades waged campaign to destroy Tibet’s proud culture, history: Pelosi"

and continues with:
"China for decades has waged a campaign to destroy Tibet's proud culture and history, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi has alleged, asserting that the US will continue to stand with the Tibetan people and honour (sic) those who sacrificed all for their rights and freedom."

Pelosi loves to distract the American people from the realities going on at home. Meanwhile, over 534,000 people have died from COVID-19 due the negligence of the US Government. There's also daily racial violence, attacks against Asian-Americans, but no, let's criticize China on Tibet.

It should also be noted that in terms of COVID-19, Native Americans and Native Alaskans have suffered much more than the rest of the country.

I think before Pelosi makes her statements she should consider how bad the US treated Native American's. In Northern California the was a $5.00 a scalp bounty for Native American men, women, and children. 

About a year ago I was talking to a local Native American and asked if anyone could speak their Native Language. The answer was that a few people could. It's a shame that the US Government wiped out hundreds of Native American languages by insisting they speak English.

Are Native Americans treated any better today? From my observation things haven't changed all that much. There's still a lot of poverty, unemployment, and drug abuse. Is the government helping to change this? Has the government ever tried to change it?

Please Ms. Pelosi before you criticize China or any other country look at what you have done or haven't done for the people in the USA - especially Native Americans. They still need our help.

Do something positive for us and help create jobs, improve education, and provide better. By the way, maybe you can give your San Francisco and Napa Valley property back to members of the tribes in those areas as act of good faith.
