No one knows the end of either movie

On the one hand, Reuters: The official Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) released on Saturday rose to 52.4 in September, from 51.7 in August and well above the 50-point mark that separates growth from contraction on a monthly basis. It marked the 14th straight month of expansion for China’s massive manufacturing industry and the highest reading since April 2012.

On the other hand, Jim Rogers: “I expect things to go wrong by next year, sometime in the next several months something will happen and he will take action.” Asked what effect this conflict would have on the global economy, he replied: “It’s going to be the worst financial situation in your lifetime.”

How does that movie end? Who knows?

We’ve previously noted the discrimination practiced by Google against some fine websites of the conservative persuasion, as well as others who dare think for themselves. Scott Johnson has been particularly funny lately, not quite Mark Steyn but getting up there. These things are very pleasant to read, but you really have to get in the muck to write them, and that’s not for us right now. There are very important arguments to be had, but they can’t take place as long as the Left (HT: Clarice) just shouts, calls its opponents names, and says shut up.

Example: Professor Walter Williams is 81 years old, has been through a lot in his life, and has some clear thinking about the sensitive matters underlying the NFL nonsense. How do you think he’d be treated while giving a speech at Berkeley, Middlebury, etc?

So there’s a big China movie playing, maybe more than one (NK), and a big movie about the US’s second civil war, at least of a sort. If we focus on the former, and let the latter pass, at least we’ll learn some pretty incredible things, like this and that.
