WTF is UP With China????

I read this post yesterday and the snippet below comes from it. Apparently in Jiangsu province in China, there was a law that says its illegal for kids to force their parents to give them money? WTF?

You mean to tell me there are a ton of Chinese running around and beating their aged parents out of their last pennies and scraps of clothing? Its not as if those elderly have not suffered enough what with the horrors of the cultural revolution and the ‘great leap forward, before it. But I guess that is what you get when you decide that religion has no utility and money is your god….

excerpt:
” The Civil Affairs Ministry is not the only government agency rushing to the defense of older people. Last week, the eastern province of Jiangsu passed an ordinance forbidding adult children from forcing their parents to give them money or goods, according to The Yangzi Evening News.”
