California Compromise Sopranos "e-Waste" Episode

Ok, I blew the California Compromise.  
Here is the dialogue I was middleman to.  What should I say?


In fairness, Jim Puckett of BAN was the most engaged of anyone in the discussions, and put the most time into making it work.  But it's hard to convince the partners overseas that the men who created the stereotype about their technical abilities can be trusted to change message.  At this point, I think, too much money has been invested in the fake story, which is that all, not some, Asians use primitive practices.


California:  Exports are bad.  We require breaking stuff.

Export Market:  We used to buy the good stuff from you guys.  Now we buy from Sopranos. Let's talk.

California:  You are bad guys.  You buy from Sopranos.

Export Market:  Here's an idea.  How about you sell good stuff to us again?

California:  You are bad guys.  You buy from Sopranos.

Export Market:  Um, yeah.  But we prefer to buy from you, you have means to remove bad stuff.

California:  You are bad guys.  You admit you buy from Sopranos.  You accepted bad stuff.

Export Market:  How about this.  If you sell good stuff to us, we will only buy from you.  Because the only reason we started buying crappier stuff was because you created a sellers market by breaking good stuff.

California:  You admit you accepted bad stuff.  You took waste and desposed of it.

Export Market:  I think you mean "disposed".  Well duh!  We try not to.  Let us buy your good stuff.  We don't like buying from the Sopranos.  But we run a factory working 3 shifts per day, seven days per week, we need to buy from someone.

California:  Based on your admissions, you might be lowly, primitive Asians.  You disposed of bad stuff.  You need us to train you.  We need proof that you are not rice paddy wire burning monkeys.  You are bad guys.  You buy from Sopranos.

Export Market:  You know what?  You guys are assholes.  I'm going to buy from Korea.

California:  You are bad guys.  You buy from Sopranos.

Export Market:  (see lyrics below)... ... You don't know me like that!
