China Pirates Citizenship

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 30, 2012

Chinese, who are brutally xenophobic and worship the “motherland”, cannot wait to get out of here. They have resorted to knocking off HK citizenship or marriages in order to hatch their disturbed on burden policy child in hong kong. Actually the joke is on them , for the Chicoms and mainland duds are increasing their presence in HK, which means that in due time, it will be just as awful as China.
The Hong Kong government has ordered that both public and private hospitals in the city must stop accepting pregnant women from China whose husbands are non-residents from next year. Non-resident expectant mothers from China who are married to Hong Kong residents will have to submit marriage certificates in order to give birth at four private hospitals assigned by the government.

Yet Hong Kong-based newspaper Ming Pao reports that false marriage certificates may be easily obtained in Shenzhen, the city just across the border in Guangdong province. Genuine-looking fake documents can be bought for only 700 yuan (US$111), the newspaper said, and can often fool Hong Kong law enforcement. Some legislators worry that fake documentation will be used widely unless the territory’s health department conducts on-site verification.

Titanic Two to Be Built in China-Tempting Fate?

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 30, 2012

Some Australian billionaire, read as dumb bastard, is building the Titanic 2. What is truly poetic about the building of this ship, IMHO is
1- the knockoff will be built, where else but in China, the land of dishonesty and fakes
2- where else would you want to build a vessel that commemorates one of the worst disaster than in china?
3- I applaud it’s being built in china and hope the communist party members all get a free ride on. Her maiden voyage
4-is this idiot not tempting fate by building this in the land of disasters?


Australian billionaire Clive Palmer plans to build a 21st-century version of the Titanic with the help of a Chinese shipyard, with the cruise ship’s maiden voyage from England to North America scheduled in late 2016.

Why China Will Never Rule the World-Video

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 30, 2012

“European” posted links to two videos. The comment went to spam, so I jut spotted it. Here are the vids, the one by Parfitt is very telling.
Thanks European

Here is another. The sad thing is that the chinese act so cowardly. They gather around the guy like it were a teacher beating in the cultural revolution, none of those Chinese would do a thing if they were alone or in a group of three, for they’d have their asses handed to them.
The screeching Chinese guy needs to be kicked in his sack….

Chinese Journalist Beaten and Hanged for Investigating Corruption

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 30, 2012

China, who is known for her four famous inventions- corruption, sloth, prostitution and xenophobia, are not novices when it comes to human rights abuses either.
In the excerpt below, china shows just why they need to close their doors once more and leave the rest of us alone. The chinese have not learned how to behave like humans.
“Incidents of journalists in China being beaten or abused by their interviewees in the course of their reporting are a common occurrence. An editorial from the China Youth Daily, a Chinese-language newspaper operated by the Communist Party, said local governments are highly sensitive concerning their interaction with media outlets and their chief goal is to stifle journalists.

Last Saturday, a reporter with the Shanghai-based Xinmin Evening News was choked, hanged and beaten by Guo Jun, the secretary of the football association in the northeastern city of Dalian as she reported on a football game between the teams of Shanghai and Dalian. Meanwhile, a journalist was scolded and browbeaten by local [comunist] officials as he investigated claims of officials using public funds for personal travel.

Cao Lin, a commentator with the newspaper, said he was personally invited by local governments many times to attend training sessions for officials, where they were taught how to deal with the media.”

Crash of Chi-Tanic-Leading Chinese Developers quality Woes

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 30, 2012

China has been around for as long as cockroaches, and one thing they have not figured out is quality.

They cannot get milk form the teat of a cow to the table without poisoning it, nor rice from the husks without adding toxins.

One of their biggest problems, however, is that they build stuff that goes fast and other things that house real humans, like foreigners.

In terms of building quality, those of us who live here cannot be shocked, but those of you in civilization may be. The following describes the shoddy quality of the projects by one of chinas premier building developers…

“The Dalian Wanda Group, a leading Chinese developer of commercial property, is currently plagued with problems such as poor construction quality, tight cash flow and a shortage of talent due to its rapid expansion, the Guangdong-based Time Weekly reports.

In just 11 years, Wanda has built projects in nearly 70 cities in China and earned annual revenue of 100 billion yuan (US$15.9 billion) for the first time in 2011. As a result, the “Wanda model” has been adopted as a case study in commercial property development in China.

However, rumors that group chairman Wang Jianlin has been under investigation since March and construction quality issues involving Wanda’s projects across the country have brought the group’s problems to the public’s attention.

Following the “three-quick” model — quick buy, quick construction and quick completion — announced by Wang during the group’s 2012 annual meeting, Wanda completed 18 new projects across China in 2011

Local government support, observers said, also helped Wanda’s rapid expansion, since such projects were completed in a short time and could benefit authorities in terms of tax revenue, employment and the image of the city.

In a recent interview with the Guangzhou-based Southern Weekly, Wang said all of the group’s projects were for local governments, since Wanda could build a new business complex from scratch in 18 months.

Despite the group’s plans to open 18 new complexes and 12 high-end hotels in 2012 and become a world-class enterprise with 300 billion yuan (US$47.6 billion) in assets in 2015, reports about the poor quality of its projects have been surfacing on several websites in China.

In addition to water leakage and elevator accidents at a project in Tianjin, cracks up to three meters long were reported in residential projects in Tangshan and Zhengzhou, along with a lack of fire equipment and crooked walls at a complex in Jinan.

Moreover, since the group’s rapid expansion began in 2006, several accidents have been reported at its construction sites, with rumors circulating about the use of substandard steel bars in projects in Mianyang, Sichuan and Zhengzhou.

Responding to the quality issues, the group’s former spokesperson Shi Xueching said the lack of supervision was unavoidable since Wanda’s projects spanned 3 to 4 million square meters every year.”

The only thing worse than paying 500,000 u$ for a 100 meter hovel, is paying $500 000 for a piece of crap that will crumble in a decade…

China, so old and so little value

China Pollution Watch, April 30, 2012

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 29, 2012

Beijings pollution today is horrible. The pm 2.5 reading is 380 or very very hazardous. A reading of 50 is considered harmful in civilized countries. I slept with a doctors mask on last night and wear one even in my home. Btw, this pic was taken in broad daylight at 10 am or so…

Hong Kong Rules Against Chinese Birth Tourism

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 29, 2012

Chinese locusts are flocking to civilization to give birth to their tainted progeny. After all, who wants to be a citizen of a vile commie dictatorship?
Hong Kong , who was given back to the savages, has had an influx of mainland wenches going there to give birth. The people from HK, who understand the Chinese are fighting back.
According to wantchinatimes, HK has had enough and will not allow chinese birth tourism anymore. The hospitals do not have to allow and should not take pregnant Chinese mothers….
The sad thing is that this means the she-hyenas will only flock to the USA instead.

Sexually Assaulted in an Elevator in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 29, 2012

Despite what my blog posts may show, I am actually a sensitive and kind individual, case in point, my sexual assault in a Beijing elevator.

After sloughing through the NoX and coal filled air that the communists force upon their citizenry, I found myself at a local building where I frequently find myself. As per usual in China, many of the elevators in the fine establishment, which although only a decade old had more cracks in its veneer than the communist party which paid for its manufacture, were not functioning.

Thus, your amiable and handsome author was forced to use the ‘service elevator’ aka mini dungeon that houses those humans that the communists and locals consider to be less than the crap one scrapes from their tongue the morning after a few bottle of tequila or cali gold.

While in the mini dungeon, I was confronted by a chinese man of questionable intellect, or so I thought. In all actuality he was probably a professor at one of China’s best unis or a leader of the party.

In any event the many was unexceptional in every way shape and form minus a duet of liliputian coal black dots scattered on either side of a bulbous nose and slightly off center under a heaping mass of scaly dark locks doubling as hair.

Upon my entering his lair, the chinaman cast his lupine nose my way and gave me one of those looks that one has had to be incarcerated or under forced care ie-in places with padded walls and lots and lots of thorazine, to understand.

In an instant, the hackles on my well muscled neck rose and my fight or flight instinct kicked in. This is saying a lot for a country like China has more than its share of oddballs. After all, what would you expect when only a few decades back, siblings were considered a nutritous supplement to one’s lunch or dinner and the murder of teachers thought to be patriotic. In a word, this place has some very very bizarre people.

So there I stood holding my breath till my floor announced its presence. The coal face topped off with a pointy beak shifted his mug in such a way that a pair of ebola shaped lips parted and then in stammering Chinese the man asked if I had eaten- a common chinese greeting.

Being a human and considering it the polite thing to do I replied that no I had not, and asked if he had eaten. This was my mistake

Apparently the Wolf man, much like the communist party and kings and queens of certain countries, through selective breeding, had inherited some very odd traits. Aside from this, the notion of civility, which is as foreign as running water to men of his ilk, apparently mistook kindness for interest in he and his life.

The man sprung to action and mumbled something in a language that only people who consider bi-monthly baths a treat would understand. He then shoved out his scaly paw and smiled , touching my arm.

Ignoring the desire to kick him in the zipper, I tried to remain civil. After all, this is their world, and I am merely a prisoner therein, one must not be judgemental.

Hhahaha … I murmered as i plunged to the corner.. To humans, my actions would signal discomfort or disdain, but this is China.

The man continued on in his mumble goo and I, through tight lips was like, ya, uh hum ya…

The thing is that Chinese do not touch one another an they sure dont touch foreigners, but I was giving him the benefit of the doubt. Once I was waiting for a flight in Argentina and saw three Thai men almost sitting atop one another each with their thands in the crotch of the guy in the middle, thus I figured his behaviour was perhaps cultural.

After a few seconds more, the guy shoves his hand at my shirt and touched my man-tit sayiing ‘ke ai’ or cute in Chinese.

Had I heard dueling banjoes at that moment I would have shit a texas sized load in my pants and looked for the guy with the brown teeth hollering
‘squeel like a pig!’ or his partner who uttered ‘he’s got a real pretty mouth…aint he!”
(Deliverance references)

I politely smacked his hand away and my eyes probably flashed red. I mean, a guy can only take so much. With a smile I then considered him as a Lion would a jackal in the serengetti. He was a force to be reckoned with.

Being Chinese, the man paid no heed and brushed it off. The silence we then shared was palpable.

My only quesiton is if this guy was just some local who, ignorant of the ways of humans got caught up in a forienger, or if a bath in industrial strenght cleanser is necessary after the mauling….

Chinas Bubble Bursting, Financial Woes

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 29, 2012

Chinas day is coming. Single party dictators are only good at taking cash, sending their seed overseas and then imploding.
It is estimated that outstanding private loans in Ordos top 200 billion yuan (US$31.7 billion). But underneath the dreams of fortune, a crisis has been simmering.

A major case erupted Sept. 20, 2011, when Su Yenu turned herself in to the authorities for being unable to repay 1 billion yuan (US$158 million) of debt owed to the some 4,000 private lenders. The scale exceeded the previously largest case involving a person named Shi Xiaohong, who owed 740 million yuan (US$117 million) of private debt.

The defaults on private loans may spread, along with the downturn of the realty market, caused in part by government’s policy to curb unbridled speculation. Feng Guangyuan, an economist, estimates that 80% of funds for the realty development projects in Ordos come from the private sector. With the downturn of housing prices and stagnant housing sales, bosses of realty firms cannot repay their private debts, tying up huge amount of private funds. In September, 2011, Ordos government forbade legal representatives of 17 realty development firms owing over 1 billion yuan of private debt from leaving the city.
