“Death by Dumplings”- China’s Newest “Murder Meal”

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 24, 2011


Having decided that “murderous mela-milk”, ” rotten rice”, “poisonous piggy” and “offensive oil” are not enough to sustain your average chinaman, the chinese have added “Death by Dumplings”. This murder meal is endorsed by none other than Jackie Chan, the same guy who rightfully stated that China cannot handle democracy. Yes Jackie Chan, the same guy who also endorsed a ‘shady shampoo’ that allegedly caused cancer must feel pretty comfy in the land of milk and honey as he does nothing more than cameos here but would never live in this land.

The death by dumplings in question are from a company called Zhengzhou Sinian Food, which to your humble author sounds like a species of ape, and contain Staphylococcus aureus, or golden staph which can cause bad things to humans. The chinese government, ever vigilant, allegedly heard about this issue months ago …but did nothing till now…….. well…. um.. Anyway, right now companies peddling this killer cuisine are removing it from their shelves, at least for now.

Thanks Mr. Buffet- Buffet’s China Business Brings a ‘Dozen’ Jobs to America

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 24, 2011


Warren Buffet got in bed with the chicoms vz BYD autos. The company, BYD, which any chinaman with cash would not touch, was touted by Buffet as a winner. for Buffet it was a winner as he’s made a heck of a profit. But for the USA it has done nothing. although cali who is bleeding cash is underwriting the BYD project to the tunes of millions, people in California are not benefiting. Thus far a few dozen people in America have been employed due to the project and we don’t know how many of them come from China.

I guess you can say Buffet epitomizes what is wrong with the USA. Too many people selling out the US so they can make a quick buck, while the rest of us dine on triscits and butter swiped from Denny’s after a late night of big stack and a chocolate malt.

And You Thought Mexican Water Was Bad-

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 24, 2011


Great comment from Brewskie on the plight of China’s drinking water, his comment to follow. He is referencing an article which states that 57.2% of the cities that China monitors do not have water that meets safety standards for drinking. And remember that China has lax standards. Whats worse is that 182 cities had water classified as ‘bad’.

Comment from Brewskie:
“Right now, there’s concern over water pollution in PA because of the shale gas drilling occurring there (Each well requires a few million gallons of water loaded with chemicals and sand; on top of that, the wells exhibit extraordinary high depletion rates – 80% the first year – so refracs and more wells are needed.) A documentary called Gasland dealt into this.”

Thanks Brew
