The Truth About China- From Brewskie

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 30, 2011

China’s less than awesome military gets a lot o ink, but much of what we hear is untrue..
From Brewskie
“China’s naval threat sinking towards Davy Jones’s locker…

China’s navy overhyped? Appears so. First, it appears China’s not constructing nuclear-powered subs as first thought; her sub fleet remains mostly diesel-electric subs, with a few nuclear-powered variants, and China’s been decreasing sub production; her underwater fleet may contract in upcoming years.


Second, China’s diesel subs are noisy and easy to track; evidently, they’re 10 years behind Russian subs, 20 years behind US underwater vessels. Aggressive deployment is making them easier to spot.


Remember China’s new aircraft carrier minus interceptor equipment ’cause the Russians won’t give/sell it? It’s a giant barge! Har! Har! Har! Har!

Note to readers: I’m not some dickhead, warmongering American who worships conflict, desires war with China. I was against both the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts and knew they both would churn disaster; I’ve no yearning for war with China, though I can assure you some Americans are stupid enough to desire so, and have already forgotten the lessons of Iraq. Sigh….

Idiotic Chinese Announcers and Football

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 30, 2011

I love American football, after all, it is the only true game of football. Unlike that other one where guys run around in little shorts complaining about a kick to the shins, NFL players are ‘ballas’ and real men.
The problem is that in China they dont show much football, well, because Chinese one child policy people don’t care. The reason is that their undescended testes have not formed enough testosterone to endow them with the build of anything resembling a man, and the molly coddlng of their ancient grandparents has left them without a spine.
So, I’m watching American football, aka the only real football and some idiotic Chinese (redundant) announcers are trying to figure out the game. Their chuckling and hem hawing as they foul up their explanation of the action and rules. The funny thing is that people in their age range, late 30’s early 40’s grew up at a time in China when schools were just re-opened- yes China closed down all schools from 1966 to 1976. So these guys, aside from getting the worst education possible, had little to no interaction with humans and the outside world, let alone playing sports.
So, the Chinese, in typical Chinese fashion, attempt to discuss things for which they are ill-equipped- others would be technology, love, respect. laws, morals, ethics, innovation etc. 

The announcers, however, do their best to memorize what the humans said, and then rebroadcast these thoughts in a true Chinese pirate fashion. The funny thing is that their timing is off, they misquote, they misinform and basically show how little they really know.
Perhaps China should stick to its knitting, do what it does best.
Casitgate her people while proclamiing undying love for some figurehead then hating what they and their country has become.
Oh yeah, the photo shows Chinese hygeine or civility. The twins photo’ed here are urinating and or defecating in front of a business office and bank.
This is not a park, but merely the front lawn of a place of business . To put this in context, it would be like opening your window in the morning to see two Chinese kids using your front lawn as a toilet as their decrepit mom, known as ‘old yeller’ by her  crinkled and less than useless spouse who hails from a village where water, is a thing that now contains more aresenic than a Chinese battery but less than Chinese air, hails from…
This is the real China, 4000 years old and beyond all hope.

California Universities Excluding Americans so Chinese can Study There

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 30, 2011

In an attempt at ‘hosing’ Americans in order to help China, California universities are making it easier for foreigners to study there which negatively impacts Americans’ ability to do so. As an example, Chinese enrollment in one school increased from 19 in 2009 to 200 in the past year,
The mandate of one school was “in 2009, University of California administrators told the San Diego campus to reduce its number of in-state freshmen by 500 to about 3,400 and fill the spots with out-of-state and international students”.

The reason is that Callie schools are suffering and need cash. So, instead of doing what they should, ie. teach Americans, they are doing the new ‘American thing’ and making a buck.

They lure the Chinese so that they can then be qualified for the jobs that Americans should be doing and then offer these same Chinese assistantships or PhD’s further ingratiation them into our system.
America is deeply flawed….
