All Hail Chinese Communist Party Reform!

The people of China have had it, and the Communist Party is leading the way in reforms!

The newly-elected leadership of China's ruling party has pledged to reject extravagance and reduce bureaucratic visits and meetings, in a bid to win the trust and support from the people.

The leadership of USA should compete with China on this point.

"The spending on officials' trips and inspections should be kept at the minimum necessary level," according to a statement issued after the meeting.

In USA this would mean a 100% reduction.

"There should be fewer traffic controls arranged for the leaders' security of their trips to avoid unnecessary inconvenience to the public, and inspection tours as a mere formality should be strictly prohibited," the statement said.

20,000 of us roasted in the hot sun as Obama tied up traffic during rush hour to attend a fundraiser with a Costco founder.  I've quit Costco for it (and Costco has managed to avoid hundred of millions in taxes, in return for raising about one million.)  Make officials take the bus.

Political Bureau members are not allowed to attend all sorts of ribbon-cutting or cornerstone laying ceremonies, as well as celebrations and seminars, unless they get approval from the CPC Central Committee, according to the statement.

Yeah, and add American officials to that list.  We should make American officials get permission from the Communist Party before they can visit anywhere.  Let's outsource bureaucrat management to China.

Official meetings should get shortened and be specific and to the point, with no empty and rigmarole talks.

Well, then, what would USA officials talk about?

It also asked the senior officials to keep a frugal lifestyle and strictly comply to regulations on housing and vehicles.

The Chinese Communist Party runs Hong Kong, and if an official cannot explain all of his money, he goes to prison until he can.  Again, outsource the Inspector General job to The Chinese Communist Party.  I like the part where they shoot embarrassing officials.

Xi Jinping said in his speech when meeting the press after being elected general secretary of the CPC Central Committee that the new leadership had taken on an important responsibility for the people and the party had to solve problems such as "corruption, being divorced from the people, going through formalities and bureaucratism."

The guy sounds serious.

Two members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee recently asked officials not to read their prepared reports at meetings to save time in order to speak about more concrete contents.

That means no more teleprompter for you, president Obama!

It also stressed that the Party "should make determined efforts to improve the style of writing and the conduct of meetings, and reject undesirable practices such as mediocrity, laziness, laxity and extravagance, the practice of just going through formalities, and bureaucratism.

In USA, that is part of the job description for officials.  We voted for hope and change and all we can hope for now is some spare change.  Let's implement the correct political views of the Chinese Communist Party in the USA political class and its appointees.
