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.

“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
