Chinese Guy Sets HimSelf on Fire at Tianenman

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 17, 2011


Awhile ago a Chinese guy set himself on fire at Tianenman. The problem is that the chicoms did not tell anyone, as they are having problems with this sort of thing and the Buddhists. The thing is that some Brits saw it and told the press but no Chinese source , not even their Twitter, reported it. How screwedis that? How evil are the chcoms that they control so much and deprive the people of news?

Overloaded Chinese Mini-van Packed with 64 Children Crashes into Coal Truck- 18 Dead

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 17, 2011


China has the deadliest roads in the world. And the story of this accident deals with this problem at many levels. Firstly the van had 64 kids which is a horrible thing to do. The idea of sacrificing safety to make a buck is horrible.

Secondly is the lax enforcement of china’s laws. If the cops were not so busy collecting bribes, perhaps they would do their jobs and enforce the laws.

But alas they do no and we see the result.

This mini van was crumpled as it smashed into a coal truck and 18 little children died.
