This week: readers like robots, friends warnings, Chinese factory busy making this, and more
So, Russell Smith was amazed Amazon USA ships free to China – and I have to say, I was skeptical too, but the order arrived in less than a week – will be using this more for sure! Tax was prepaid on Amazon, delivered right to my Chinese apartment doorstep!
And Chi-Wai Li enjoyed my newsletter last week about the government and robots discussion, he said it made him think of the Inception star Joseph Levitt Gordon’s series here on Robots running for President (broken link https://en.yahstar.com/joe-gordon-levitt/video/58238279cebd2e6b348b465b-episode-1-usai.html )
And now, the after-effects of a Trump victory-seen from the eyes of an American blogger in Asia…
Yes, as an American I do get quite a lot of benefits, and I appreciate those.
Yet the joys of being an American overseas these days, as if being away from my family and friends isn’t already hard enough – I got this Facebook message from a hometown school friend a couple days ago (I’ll keep his name out of it)
“Mike… what are you going to do? China-USA is done. I’d be cautious even coming back to America with this maniac we elected.”
If Everything Hits The Fan?
I guess I’m planning to go to Thailand if it totally hits the fan. Well, I did name this blog Global from ASIA for reasons like this! Global From Thailand division may start sooner than expected, which isn’t such a bad thing, right? 😉
Asian Americans are getting targeted for harassment – just hope I don’t get any backlash inside Mainland China if news reports it over here.

And on the other side of this hate, is there some kind of organized, uprising happening – reports from this Chinese factory may say so, take a look at @shanghaiis’s Tweet:
We all know Silicon Valley didn’t support Trump. Now tech founders want to spin California off into a new country.
