Australia to Chinese Students- Stay Out of Here!

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 26, 2012

Here is a blurb from this source. They contend that bashing of Chinese students is not abating and the Chinese should consider this before going there.

In the US, you may have heard, two Chinese were also killed in Los Angeles. It would appear that the world is no more fond of the sons and daughters of the communist party members who have stolen enough to send their kids overseas.

After all, 99% of these people cannot afford to send their vile offspring to civilization. The chicom crumb kids, however, have no problem.

Even the Chinese on Weibo and other sites have no pity for these victims. For instance , in the case of the double murder in LA, the Chinese argued that the students were sons of officials and felt no pity for them. The rationale was that these one commie kids are from dirty families and thus its a karmic reaction that bad things happen to them.
China, the nation of locus people who so despise themselves that the rest of the world is now in agreement.

“The controversy surrounding the alleged bashing of Chinese students in Sydney is showing no sign of abating as China’s largest television network and consular officials warned that Australia was no longer safe for Chinese students.”

Dereliction of Duty and Chicoms

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 26, 2012

I saw this blurb and promptly pissed on myself I Laughed so hard
The quote “Chinese authorities have begun an investigation into possible dereliction of duty involving law enforcement and safety supervisors amid a scandal revolving around contaminated medicine capsules.”

The article is talking about Chinese medicine capsules that were made out of old rubber shoes and thus could not be digested, and we’re poisonous.
What I find amusing, however is that in the quote above, the writer could have left out half of the sentence. The reality is that all the Chicoms could be tried for dereliction of duty …period…..

china , so many people and so little talent

Dam China! China’s Coming Collapse….

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 26, 2012

Here is a goodie from the King of Brews, America’s midwest assassin…. the Brewskie…

“I found some eggs left rotten by the “Chinese Easter Bunny”…
A brain child of Mao, and a $23 billion colossal failure, 3 Gorgies may force another 100,000 people to relocate because of dangers surrounding mudslides and bank collapses.
Second, Lord Chovanec – a fine, erstwhile Beijing gent who’s knowledge on China places him on the next rung down from the Holy Trinity of WT, King and Brew – has more on China’s skewed economic stats, which Chovanec seems to be an expert on. Let me quote this piece about the apparent slide in China’s CPI:
“My first assertion is that the decrease in China’s consumer inflation rate (CPI) — 3.6% in March, down from a peak of 6.5% last July — does not seem to accord with my own daily experience of rising prices in China. On Bloomberg I offered, as a counterpoint, the fact that the price of the fresh milk I have delivered to my home had, just that weekend, risen by 33%, from 6 yuan/bottle to 8 yuan/bottle.
Now I want to be clear that I am not claiming consumer inflation in China is actually running at 33%. I’m simply offering an example of the kind of head-turning price hike that remains an all-too-frequent experience despite the government’s declared “success” in getting inflation under control.
To be fair, this particular price hike is more likely due to rising delivery charges than the price of milk itself. The Chinese media has been buzzing these past few weeks about rapidly rising logistics costs, across the board, which are expected to translate into even greater price hikes in the weeks and months ahead.
But food itself has long been a source of concern, and this is hardly the first time I’ve noted a disconnect between my own observations and the official numbers. Back in August 2010, before inflation really took off, I wrote a post on the “KFC Index,” noting that the price of my own regular meal at KFC had risen by 32.6% since the year before, from RMB 21.50 to 28.50, far higher than the official rate of food inflation. After my Bloomberg appearance last week, I figured I ought to check out and see where it stood now. The same meal — large popcorn chicken, small fries, large Coke — now costs RMB 33.00, a 53.5% increase since I made my first observation, two years and 8 months ago. On a compounded annualized basis, that works out to an inflation rate of 17.4%.
Two years ago, a business buffet I often go to charge RMB 99/person; it now costs RMB 158, a 61.2% increase, or 27% on a compounded annualized basis. Our local foot massage place (a popular pastime in China) recently raised its prices 20%, from RMB 168/hour to 198. Gasoline prices at the pump in China are more than 50% higher than three years ago, rising 10% just this last month — the second hike in less than two months — as you can see in this Reuters video. (China’s elimination of fuel subsidies, which kept gasoline prices artificially low, is probably a good thing on balance, since they encouraged over-consumption, but it still hits people in the pocketbook.)”
And third: a top Chinese economist states real PMI number weaker than official number:
