China Playing the Race Card- Delisted Company Clean Tech Sues

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 19, 2012

China has decided that its not only good enough to bilk the locals , so they have decided to steal from us as well. The result is a bevy of Chinese companies listing stocks in the USA.

Sorry to say this, but I have no pity for you if you got burned by purchasing a Chinese stock, you should have known better. In a country where they’ll feed poison to children, killing them, just to make a buck or two, do you really think they’d play nice when it comes to things like book keeping and such?

So last year a ton of Chinese companies got delisted, meaning they can no longer sell shares to the good people of the USA.
One of those companies has cried foul and is playing the race card. Clean Tech, another made in china good that promises a lot but delivers little is suing the USA after being desisted. They claim , among other things, racial profiling.

The racial profiling claim comes from some alleged comment by a guy who said he wanted to send a stern message to Chinese companies. While it may sound harsh, but the truth at time is isn’t it? The comment he made is akin to saying that ‘we really need to be careful of Muslims, especially those from saudi arabia who have trained in Afghanistan, when they board American planes. After all, 16 of the men who blew up the twin towers had that profile didn’t they?

Of course by playing the race card and crying racial profiling, the C? Chinese and Arlen Specter, a moan who should be C? Chinese by virtue of the gaping hole he has where a soul should go, will no doubt catch the ears of minorities across the US.

For over a decade now, racial profiling has been the catch-all for getting oneself out of trouble. Rob a bank then get caught, the reason you were stopped, racial profiling. Lose your job due to poor work, racial profiling, or something similar.

My question is, will we Americans finally wake up and say we’ve had it? Our courts are clogged enough with real cases that matter, matter to those of us who live in the USA, will die there and pay taxes there. Do we really need to expend time and energy on some Chinese made piece of junk that over promises and under performs all due to the fact that they chose the catch all, race card, an almost sure fire way to win a lawsuit in the American 32st century.

The answer is to not be ignorant an stay away from most things Chinese. And if you don’t then do not complain as you’ve as much a part of the problem as they are.

Foxconn Boss Calls Chinese Workers ‘Animals’

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 19, 2012

Here is a pretty good quote from the Taiwanese leader of hon hao, the parent company of Foxconn. The guy has assloads of Chinese workers who habitually kill themselves at his plants. The guy obviously has a good handle on the situation here

His words
“Hon Hai has a workforce of over one million worldwide and as human beings are also animals, to manage one million animals gives me a headache,” said Hon Hai chairman Terry Gou at a recent year-end party, adding that he wants to learn from Chin Shih-chien, director of Taipei Zoo, regarding how animals should be managed.”

The USA Lost When China Joined The WTO

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 19, 2012

“Yet in America, China’s single biggest trading partner, sentiment towards the country has turned starkly negative. In a recent poll, 61% of Americans said that China’s recent economic expansion had been bad for America; just 15% thought it had been good. This partly reflects China’s controversial currency regime. By keeping the exchange rate down, China’s critics allege, it has gained a substitute for the mercantilist measures it gave up to join the WTO”

China’s Intolerable TV

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 19, 2012

The thugs who run china have decided that absent the old cure of opium, they need something else to whip the locals into submission. Thus, they are going to bore them to death.
China has outlawed interesting tv

“The order from the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television limits what broadcasters may air during the prime-time hours from 7.30pm to 10pm. That period, known in China as “Gold Time,” must now include two 30-minute news briefings, and no more than 90 minutes of the lighter shows that China’s hundreds of millions of viewers have come to love. These include game shows, soap operas, dating competitions and singing contests where—uniquely for China—ordinary people get a chance to vote for favourites. Under government pressure, the number of such shows has been slashed, from over 120 to fewer than 40 a week”

China Abusing the Elderly

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 19, 2012

China is raising their retirement age which is 55 and 60 for women and men in public service. These ages were set 50 years ago when china was filled with slack jawed peasants who were ignorant of the world.
As china modernizes they guess they need more than a simple pound of flesh. So they are pushing the latest raft of ignorant slack jawed peasants to work more.
The impact will be more useless laborers , who, lacking the skill and awareness of humans, shuffle forth each day and clog the subways and bus stops while they toil away for pennies making steamed buns, food on sticks and selling fake faipiao outside the Beijing train station.
The one child burdens are upset as not only do they have to take care of these old fools, but now the old coots are even taking their jobs.
