Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 21, 2011

I’m not able to get to comments to approve them yet but will do so shortly. Here are a few funny comments from
comment on reincarnation
“honestly who really wants to reincarnate here!??!!?!!!? glutton for punishment?”
comment on polio
“Say isn’t polio spread by that strange “mud” like substance that’s found in abundance on the tiled mall floors of offices, restraunts, and malls? Thanks a whole bunch Chou-na. (ahhh see what I did thar? see. I called china Chou-na). Your fucking dirty babies with holes in their trousers have spread this disease that we spent. No mother fucking wasted 30 years of our lives that we can’t back trying to erradicate. Where our young medical talent had to spend adventerous internships in some even more fucked up country than Shit-na trying to upgrade that country.

Adn you and your fucking animalistic shit babies taking a shit in the streets where the rains spread these shit germs, go and negate Billions of dollars, which could have went to feed you and your retarded shit children, but we tried to erridicate a disease with it. And you assholes brough it back. now it’ll mutate because it smelled your daughters baby daughters sweaty little germy shit covered cunt. FUCK YOU, you black holed nostred pig-woman looking mutant.”

China’s Han Han Calls China’s Leaders Illiterate and Fearful of Culture or Knowledge

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 21, 2011

Han Han is a Chinese guy whose writing is incredible. He bemoans the commuist party and what they are doing to China. He’s going to do a piece for an American newspaper which means he’ll end up in jail with an electric prod up his keester just as Ai Wei Wei did. But for now we can enjoy his work
here is a translation of his speech in Xiamen from here:
“Leaders, teachers, and students: Hi. Do you know why China couldn’t become a cultural power? Because in most of our speeches, “leaders” always come first, and our leaders are all illiterate. Moreover, they are scared of culture (or knowledge), but their job is to censor culture, so they can control culture. How can a country (controlled by these people) become a cultural power? What do you say, leaders?
Actually China has the potential to become a big cultural figure, let me tell you a story. I served as a chief editor for a magazine that couldn’t manage to publish until now…”

Cleaning with “Chinese Characteristics”- China Photo

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 21, 2011

I saw this ‘Chinese cleaning lady’ going about her assigned tasks in a most admirable way. The only thing that I failed to understand was that if she was well equipped, and the little waste bucket and broom prove that she was, then why did she decide it was a nobler task to sweep all of that garbage into the corner by the wall instead of removing it.
NO kidding. I watched as this lady re-arranged the dust and debris and then without cleaning any of it stumbled off to her next equally useless task.

Excellent Post on The World Embracing Draconian China Policies

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 21, 2011

Here is a good post from this site. The author questions why we as a world seem to espouse some of China’s barbaric policies.
excerpt :
Lately it seems that some people are having a love affair with China’s draconian policies. From Diane Francis who wrote the following in the Financial Post:

The “inconvenient truth” overhanging the UN’s Copenhagen conference is not that the climate is warming or cooling, but that humans are overpopulating the world.

A planetary law, such as China’s one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently, which is one million births every four days…….

To Thomas Friedman who wrote this in the NY Times:

One-party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks. But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people, as China is today, it can also have great advantages.

I am wondering if Francis and Friedman are referring to this story in the UK Times Online about China’s “enlightened” “smart policy” that is incarcerating and forcibly sterilizing people for violating the one-child rule:

Polio Re-emerges in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 21, 2011

While polio has been eliminated from most countries in the world, it has found its way back into China. Many claim that due to fears of poor quality polio vaccines the Chinese have stopped receiving their inoculations. The result is that at least seven people in western China are reported as having polio.
