William Thames, Now just a visitor to purgatory-China… but still blogging about the trauma of life there

making his way across southern China now, stay tuned.

I had posted my blog rules a while ago and decided to change them. The old ones can be found here. Now, for the new and improved version…This site gives and irreverent and sometimes crude view of living and working all over China. It is not one of those ‘yippe yippe, look at how great China is’ sites. If you want that go here or here.In this site for the low low price of nothing, you get to hear me use potty mouth words and denigrate China, or treat it with the respect it deserves. For this same price, you get to hear Gowron, aka The King, share his China insights and use the politically incorrect term for coitus quite often. You will also hear the words of the ‘soothsayer of the midwest’ aka Brewskie, who manages to comment on China without being nearly as crude as the other two humble authors.You will read and see things that you never thought were possible in civilization, because they are not. China, as it stands today, does not, for the most part meet that definition-imho. If any of this is disconcerting to you then please stick your head back in the sand and run from this blog.. Winning The Day Oh yeah click here to go to a site where you can buy goods not made in China….or you can search to buy here too

Chinese Tourists, aka Global Menace Attack

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 2, 2015


Chinese tourists are known for a couple of things. First off, they redefine the term ‘rube’ with those big billed hats, one-size-fits-all shirts and incessant yapping. Indian corn colored teeth coupled with breath that could atomize coal make them a fan favorite for no one.

Aside from their utter lack of concern for aesthetic appeal, they are also known to be rude. Toting along Chinese civility with them wherever they go, the Chinese eat, spit and shit wherever they please. Aside from this their manners are on display as those howler monkeys foray into civilized lands.

Here is an example of the latter…

Wantchinatimes.com
Two Chinese tourists argued and fought with a Thai traveler at Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport after the latter tried to stop them from cutting in line, reports our Chinese-language sister paper Want Daily.

The Thai passenger sought to stop the two Chinese women from cutting in line before the Lion Air check-in counter at the airport on Friday. The two women argued fiercely and the man found himself being chased around the airport as the two women waved their arms trying to hit him until airport staff intervened.

Staff took the women to the police station and arranged for them to take a flight back to China. Lion Air said the Thai man was scheduled to take a flight at 10pm on the day and the two women were scheduled for an 11pm departure.

China Begins Another Cultural Revolution

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 28, 2014


Here is what Xi the ‘Mad man’ Jinping is doing to China. He is aping Mao by selling hate and isolationism. Funny how only the dumbass communists would call crowing about Marxism anything close to ‘civilized’ behavior. The sad thing is that these apes are now relocating to a city near you and me….

From the Global Times
“Wuhan rolls out ‘socialist core values’ recitation campaign

By Cao Siqi

The city of Wuhan, in Central China’s Hubei Province, is calling upon all its residents to internalize core socialist values through mandatory recitation sessions around the city, as a part of the efforts to bid for the title of “national civilized city.”

After the city kicked off its campaign on October 14, some 400 officials were brought together to recite core socialist values at a conference hall where cell phone signals were blocked, aiming to urge city leaders to set an example for the public, reported the Hubei Daily”

Chinese Love Defined

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 27, 2014


Chinese would rather sell a daughter than pay for an operation for her husband. Chinese culture is filled with hatred for baby girls, they are expendable. For example, this girl will move with the family of her husband and thus is useless to her mom and dad.
In China everyone is measured by what economic gain they bring to a relationship.

Metal Cutlery Banned on Flight Due to Chinese Passengers

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 13, 2014


This is how Chinese are changing the world.
‘Are metal utensils dangerous? Thai Airways thinks so. The airline is removing metal forks and knives from its service.
Whatever happened to table manners? Tourists leaving the Land of Smiles weren’t all smiles during a Thai Airways flight to Beijing last Thursday, when three Chinese passengers got into a brawl with stainless steel flatware. The in-flight battle resulted in a bloody gash and the end of the Metal Age: The Asian flag carrier announced today that it will trial plastic cutlery to prevent future incidents. The official explanation is that the airline wants to prevent terrorist acts, though no yogurt spoon or bread knife has been used by potential hijackers in the history of aviation.

So goodbye, classy tableware, and hello, tacky (not to mention environmentally damaging) plastic—all this, allegedly because one passenger was eating too loudly.’

Corrupt Chinese Officials with Blood on Their Hands in New Zealand

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 10, 2014


This is just biz as usual for dirty Chinese commies:
Corrupt Chinese officials who have fled to New Zealand could be making large political donations to avoid being repatriated, Labour says.

Beijing authorities want to extradite what Prime Minister John Key has described as a “reasonable number” of Chinese from New Zealand to face charges of financial corruption.

Key revealed that President Xi Jinping raised the issue when he visited New Zealand last month.

Labour leader Andrew Little said today that when he was party president he had been approached by Chinese donors he described as suspicious.

Little did not accept their money, but said it was possible the money had found its way into the coffers of other political parties.

“They’re known to make political contributions to parties, I know because they tell us that,” he said on Morning Report.

“I know the fact that donations have been made because, certainly in the Labour Party when I was president, we were approached being offered handsome donations.

“We turned them down, but they would have gone to other places. We weren’t sure what the origin of their wealth was, and we weren’t satisfied, we weren’t comfortable so we didn’t accept the donation.”

National Party president Peter Goodfellow said the party disclosed all its donations in accordance with the electoral requirements.

There were no “explicit” background checks but Goodfellow confirmed a “small number” of donations had been rejected by National for various reasons – though none were related to the Chinese corruption scandal.

Chinese Companies Inundating the USA with Fake Pharmaceuticals

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 9, 2014


If the Chinese would actually invent anything positive, they would be unstoppable.
Excerpt
Drug gangs in the United States are moving to new markets, with the help of Chinese factories. Their new target is counterfeit pharmaceuticals, and their new victims are the vulnerable: cancer patients, the elderly, hospitalized children, and folks who otherwise can’t afford medication.

Criminal organizations are being drawn to the allure of the new market, which brings less legal risk and higher profits than illicit drugs. Chinese companies, meanwhile, are operating with little oversight and outside the reach of U.S. law.

“Not only do Chinese chemical companies sell precursor materials to the Mexican cartels and synthetic drugs directly to the European and American markets over the Internet, but are also actively involved in cloned pharmaceuticals production,” said Robert Bunker, adjunct professor at the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute, in an email.

Cases of smugglers trafficking fake medicine are growing more common. In early October, three Texas residents were indicted for allegedly trying to smuggle at least 30 shipments of fake pharmaceutical drugs—close to 100,000 pills—into the United States from China.

Communist Party Officials Bribe Muslim Women to De-veil

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 9, 2014


The communists in Beijing have to swear fealty to the part. They must be agnostic. This is bad enough, but now they are forcing people to abandon their religious beliefs as well.

Excerpt
‘How is this reflected in your current work?

A.
Right now, I’m working on the Communist Party’s anti-veiling campaign in Xinjiang with a colleague in the U.S. The party is offering women who take off their veils fully paid trips to Shanghai or Urumqi, as models of deveiling. But those who don’t remove their veils lose preferential benefits or are subject to administrative detention.

This en/wei formula has been the consistent approach of the Han [the dominant ethnic group in China] center towards its frontier minorities. What’s changed is the sophistication and level of penetration. During the Qing, Beijing was far away, and the empire was governed by around 20,000 officials. Now the party has 86 million members that are able to garrison remote corners of state territory and penetrate deep down into the grass roots.

Q.
And we see this in current policy, right?

A.
Recently, the party has pushed a “mass line” campaign aimed at embedding officials in grass-roots communities. The Tibetan mass line campaign was the first one. It started in 2011 and ended in 2013, with 20,000 officials rusticated. The Xinjiang one was initiated in March of this year. It’s going to send 200,000 officials down over three years. This year nearly 75,000 party members in teams of five to seven were dispatched, with one-third going into rural villages in southern Xinjiang, where they will stay for a year. They’re meant to be the eyes and ears of the party and ensure policy implementation at a local level.

Proof China is Gearing Up for War

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 7, 2014


It does not get much clearer than this. China is gearing up for war. My only question is: to whom will all those new Chinese visa immigrants owe their loyalty when this happens.
Excerpt
Researchers at the U.S. National Defense University looked at more than 1,200 military, paramilitary, legal, economic, diplomatic, and administrative actions undertaken by claimants in the South China Sea from 1995 and 2013. Even based on unclassified data, Dr. Christopher Yung and Patrick McNulty found that China had dramatically escalated its assertiveness since 2009. With respect to all actions, China accounted for about 55 percent of the total actions, with a significant jump in assertive actions since 2009. Military and paramilitary actions followed the same trend, with a spike in military assertiveness in the South China Sea clearly seen over the past few years, peaking at 62 actions in 2012 alone. A more complete, classified accounting would likely show a similar spike but even far more actions.’
