Under the Dome

The Guv in China

Gov. Bev Perdue and Commerce Secretary Keith Crisco led a discussion today with business and education leaders in Beijing about opportunities for Chinese students at North Carolina colleges, according to the governor's office.

The forum was hosted by New Mind Education, a Raleigh company that helps Chinese students succeed in American colleges. Perdue used the event to promote Tar Heel schools as a destination for Chinese students.

“Today's event was an opportunity to both help a great North Carolina company grow its business in China and to show off our colleges and universities to Chinese students an leaders,” Perdue said in a statement. “In addition to paying out-of-state tuition and bringing revenue to our state, international students increase campus diversity and help foster a greater understanding between our countries.”

Had enough

I'm a lifelong democrat, but this is the last straw. Perdue and others have ruined our party. It's time to vote them out, get them out of party control. If they can't put Americans first in times like these,...............em!

In other words

The Governor is telling Chinese internationals to come to study at North Carolina universities because they have money and the young people in North Carolina have none. In fact, they can no longer afford to pay the tuition even with government subsidies!

 

UNIVERSITIES = GREED

Bev says, Chinese like idea of cancelling elections

Bev finally found an audience that will like the idea that elections should be cancelled.  And I hope that she stayed on script during her discussion with the Chinese as her sarcasm will likely not go over well - fortunately we fully know when she is using sarcasm.
