"support the website by making an account, asking questions in the forum, leaving reviews and using the classifieds section to find a job, sell your stuff or rent an apartment."

This (or rather what is not included in that list of to-dos) sums the criticism that I personally have toward the whole ordeal, and how GoKunming (out of no choice I understand) had to respond to it with rest of the nation.
Ask questions and increase revenue, but feel free to avoid discussing and, heaven forbid, debating anything.

I'm glad I live in Kunming. We have been so fortunate to be able to buy what we need. We are fortunate to be able to take walks and go out. I'm happy that people here have really worked together to get through this horrible situation. My heart breaks for those that are less fortunate. Never in my wildest dream would I ever had imagine that this would happen. I feel sad for the people that lost their lives and their loves ones. Hopes and dreams were sudden taken away with little to no warning. Children becoming orphans through no fault of their own. Husbands losing their wives and wives losing their husbands. Grandparents losing their children and children losing their grandparents. In a mostly one child family this is so devastating to the Chinese culture. Not being able to say goodbye and burying your loves ones. I just can't imagine that. I feel that Kunming is doing a great job though I know at times some people can be a bit much. We're still not out of the woods, this I know. Hopefully it will end soon and never happen again. Thanks Gokunming for given us information throughout this crisis. You've help many of us. Keep up the good work.

Your hard work is most definitely appreciated. Thank you so so very much for demonstrating how important it is to stick together and support one another. It was, and still is challenging to wade through the waves of hysteria and misinformation, but cooler heads will ultimately prevail. Thank you.

The FTZ video was interesting, but most important is the new website - investinyunnan.com - as all of the economic development zones in yunnan are in chinese language only.

So let's see how well the investinyunnan.com site and the new emerging process for bringing in foreign direct investment, matching partners, government support etc works..

I'm sure there's be hiccups - but as long as everyone's committed to the success process - things should work out.

@sean1: The thing is that it's a weak field, so I don't really support anyone in particular enough to sing their praises. But Buttigieg (fake), Biden (senile) and Klobuchar (bully) are all just blatantly awful. I suppose I could live with Sanders, Warren or even Bloomberg, although they each have serious flaws.

As far as Pete's donor stats, yeah, a lot of people seem to have been bamboozled, which is disappointing to see. And I don't think the fact that he's the poorest candidate gives any reassurance that he won't cater to the interests that have ravaged the country over the past generation. Maybe the opposite.

Also, while I am not a huge fan of Sanders and therefore am reluctant to carry water for him, I don't think the UK results necessarily translate to the US. Corbyn was abysmally unpopular, due in large part to his humorlessness, links to violent extremists and allowing anti-Semitism to fester within his party. Sanders has none of those faults and polls as the most popular active political figure in the US. Plus Labour's traditional electorate was fractured by the all-important Brexit issue, and there is no comparably powerful wedge issue at stake in the US.

Alright, I guess I opened up this can of worms, and I would be wise to use some facts as opposed to some sensationalist character attacks and No, No, No's that seemed to follow my message. Furthermore, since I mentioned the name of someone I support as opposed to just bashing one without offering a solution. here we go.
1- 'Wall Street Pete,' being by far the poorest of all the individual candidates running is also has the third largest amount of individual donors at around 390,000. While this is far behind Bernie, it was only around 20,000 behind Warren as of late august. (www.nytimes.com/[...]

2- Buttigieg's campaign average contribution size to the campaign in Q3 was $32, and 98 percent of their donations were under $200. (www.newsweek.com/[...]
3- There is quite alot to be learned from what happened that put

Falling on the far left of the political spectrum and branding one as a 'Democratic Socialist' does based on what happened to put Johnson in power in the UK and I think a good editorial here supports this view www.nytimes.com/[...]

Whether it's Bernie, Warren, or really anyone but Biden they will have my support, and although I am someone who probably falls on the far left of the political line in the United States, I also recognize that the United States as a whole is not. I certainly agree that steps towards a higher level of social programs and support are needed in the US, but it needs to happen at a rate that the nation as a whole feels comfortable with, otherwise in the end, leftward leaning people are always gonna get walloped by the fact that 'Socialist' is still perceived as a dirty word in the US and there will be 4 more years of you know who. I'm not gonna bash Warren, Bernie, or even Klobuchar, I think they're cool. But pleas, jj123 and herenow, go ahead and make a pitch for the person you support instead of this trollish like fact-less attacks of the person I like.
