Understanding China, One Blog at a Time

An American in China

Why I am Happy That I am Not From China- China Pic

Posted by w_thames_the_d on February 28, 2012


We all like to bitch about our countries, it’s somewhat cache. Like, I can say ‘GWB, what an embarrassment’ or ‘how come Hillary has a bigger ‘man tool’ than half the US congress’. Our friends across the pond can bemoan the Queen and or being ruled by the queen, or past dictators or almost losing wars.

But I can guaranty you one thing:
Come to China and you will never ever ever ever, freaking ever hate your homeland again.

You pass through the viscus Chinese air, your lungs filled with soot and you think ‘damn this place is messed up’.

Then you smile because you can always go home.

Then you see assloads of locals who have no plan ‘B’. To them, this is it. Evil dictators, oppression, toxic air, food, soil and water-24x7x365 , this is how they roll.

Then you get down on your knees and thank whatever higher power you choose to believe in and you say ‘thank you, ohhh thank you’ for having me born in ABC Anyplace But China

(ps. regarding the photo, what are the requisite skill sets for this job? Whatever they are, I’m willing to wager they are more profound than those required to be a member of the communist government)
