You Mean We Trusted These Chinese To Rebuild Our Bridge in San Francisco-China Bridge Collapse

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 14, 2011


San Francisco contracted a Chinese company with no bridge building experience to rebuild its bay bridge. Maybe its a smart move and maybe gross negligence. By looking at the photo below, we have no idea. For instance, this is a Chinese bridge which suddenly collapsed a few days ago in China. We can only assume those who built it were ‘qualified’ as far as that word goes in a Chinese sense.
So maybe those in Cali were smart, maybe they figure that if real bridge builders in China can only produce calamities like this, then why not hire someone with no experience…..
Why are we in such a rush to entrust our lives to this level of workmanship?

China’s Bohai Oil Spill Officially a “Disaster”

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 14, 2011


China has announced that their Bohai Oil spill is a disaster the likes of which they have never seen before. This comes at a bad time as many Chinese are doubting uncle c and his ability to govern well. Inflation is off the charts and today the chinadaily ran an article with the title that Beijing is a more price place to live than NYC, New York. If this is true, its no wonder all the Chinese want to leave this place. Who wants to pay New York prices for contaminated food, air, milk, and people?

Tiger Parenting- Chinese Girl Beats Younger Cousin as Dad Exhorts Her On- Photo

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 14, 2011


This shot came from the China daily and says that this girls father is trying to prove a point to the little boy, to make him tougher. The dad supposedly believes in the ‘rule of the jungle’ and only the strong survive. Yeah, right, the guy is probably some pos who got his butt whipped his whole life and now is living through others. The comments he is making – allegedly, frequently come from the mouths of wife beaters and such. This guy needs to be re-educated by the same folks who were taking care of Ai Wei Wei

Chinese Women Shanzhai’ing ‘T and A’- Cosmetic Surgery in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 14, 2011


Far too many Chinese women have a heaping helping of the fbugly gene and are a little light in the ‘ T and A’ section. In order to correct this malady, they have done what this country does best, they have shanzhai’ed or copied some of those parts.
Plastic surgery is on the rise in China as they disdain their fat eyelids, noses and non-existent chests and badonkadonks. According to the news, 80% of all plastic surgery victims in Beijing last year were high school and college students, I guess the older ones feel they are beyond hope.

Chinese Soldiers ALLEGEDLY Beat a Vietnamese Fisherman in Parcel Isles in West Philippine Sea

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 14, 2011


All hail the peaceful rise of China. They have not mislead a soul and will never attack other countries …ooops
news sources claim that armed Chinese soldiers beat Vietnamese fishermen and threatened them in the water now known as the West Philippine sea aka used to be ‘south china sea’. Supposedly the Chinese were not merely satisfied with chasing away the Vietnamese, but then sent a speed boat after them. I think this valor is noteworthy and wish your common Chinese person would have as much vigor in say, giving to charities or assisting someone when they fall. But in true Chinese fashion, they only choose the most worthy opponents , for we all know a little guy floating along in a sampan can be a challenging foe.
