Here we are at the day before the vote and I still have a lot of territory to cover regarding the 2013 Maine legislative session which I researched for my time line, A Maine Citizen's Journey Through The Statutes of Transformation, which you can receive in full by sending a contribution to this otherwise unfunded independent research blog to firstname.lastname@example.org via paypal. I will then send it to you via PayPal as download links never seem to stay functional for long.
In my last post I covered the No-Contest between the interests of the general public's need to know about toxic materials and the business interests of Maine State Inc.
In the same legislative session a bill was passed confirming Maine's friendship with China
Combating pollution has shot up the agenda of the ruling Communist Party, which for years pushed for rapid economic development with little concern about the environmental impact. Under public pressure to reduce the air pollution that blankets Beijing and cities across China, the country’s leaders are rebalancing their priorities. China Declares War on Pollution-NY POST
The spin that the United States and the Republic of China share "common values of freedom, democracy, rule of law and commitment to a free market economy" is sadly all too true, at least from the perspective of practicing policies. I hope in the future to expand my research into economic development statutes to a national level since the spokes persons for the corporation of Maine are perpetually justifying their own unconstitutional actions with the claim that all the other states are doing the same thing forcing Maine to take action and at the same time the legislature lauds itself for passing the diabolical Expanded and Improved Seed Capital Tax Credit-making Maine a leader among the states-soon to be emulated ! All the while that the political class of Maine promotes the myth that all the other states in the USA are moving away from the free enterprise system, it ignores one's of Maine's most confounding competitors- the state of New Hampshire- which is not part of the global capitalist evolution- yet, and yet, is always far ahead of Maine in economic state by state comparisons.
1. Objectives. The objectives of an industry partnership are to:And while Maine builds hegemony within , China expands hegemony without:
A. Organize businesses, employers, workers, labor organizations and industry associations into a collaborative structure that supports the sharing of information, ideas and challenges common to their industry cluster; [2013, c. 368, Pt. FFFFF, §1 (NEW).]
The income gap between the rich and poor in China has surpassed that of the U.S. and is among the widest in the world, a report showed, adding to the challenges for President Xi Jinping as growth slows.
The growing wealth disparity that accompanied China’s breakneck growth in the decade through 2011 has increased the risk of social instability in the world’s most populous nation and biggest developing economy. Xi is engineering a slowdown in expansion to below 8 percent and leading a campaign against corruption as he grapples with rising unrest, credit risks, and pollution choking the country’s biggest cities.

2013 Confucius Institute installed at the University of Southern Maine- The Confucius Institute partners with the Dongbei University of Finance and Economics. which features a departmental focus on globalism: , International Cooperation Office , School Of International Business, International Institute of Chinese Language and Culture, Global Institute of Management and Economics
Of course it isn't an issue, Maine State Inc and The Confucius institute are on the same global capitalists page:
Founding philosophy of the DECD Corporation:
§13051. Legislative findings
The Legislature finds that the State's economy is linked to the national and international economies. Economic changes and disruptions around the world and in the nation have a significant impact upon the State's economy. The rise of 3rd-world and 4th-world countries as manufacturers of commodities for mass markets and the gradual evolution of the national economy to a technological, informational, specialty product-based economy have significantly affected the State and its communities. [RR 2013, c. 2, §5 (COR).]
In order for the State's economy to grow and gain a solid footing, it is necessary to determine the State's assets and the economic opportunities that are or will be available to the State's enterprise, municipalities and labor force. When these opportunities are determined or become apparent, state economic development policies and programs must be focused on facilitating the realization of these opportunities and removing barriers that impede the exploitation of these opportunities. [1987, c. 534, Pt. A, §§17, 19 (NEW).]
Bills that are frequently attempted to pass but don't are bills that protect the public against eminent domain, bills that establish a state bank, and bills that grant state property taxes.
I strongly advocate voting both Chris Johnson and Bruce McDonald out of office! The last thing we need is a state property tax.
