Rants, Rants. Glorious China Rants- Corrupt Confucianism

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 16, 2012

Holy Shit! When it rains it pours.
Battling Brewskie, the King of Brews has penned a hilarious rant about the big Stinky- China, and supplied some other witticisms.
Gowron, the King, has also been on overdrive and brought the wtf- China news.
So, yours truly is as ecstatic as a communist in KTV-aka whorehouse, with a pocket filled with illicit loot obtained from the suffering of my brethren, but where to begin???
(btw, yesterday I was inundated so have been late getting to your comments, mea culpa)

KIDDIES TODAY IS RANT DAY! I will posting nothing but China rants so enjoy

Here is a piece from Battling Brewskie, its about Confucianism, and I have to say that I concur

Brewskie Brings the ‘real’
“Confucianism, stud, it’s call Confucianism: the wise, drunk pilots on the plane are in charge, they know what they’re doing; even if it’s apparent the nose of the plane is ready to kiss the forest, you moron plebeian peons don’t know jack shit, so it’s better you just shut up and let the wise overlords take care of you. After all, it was errant, power-hungry elitist bastards who coughed up Confucianism.

In reality Confucianism is just another flavor of the longest, most ill-sought, yet most determined philosophical pursuit in the history of mankind: the justification of elitists raping the underlines somehow being good for the subjects they rule. An example in the US that has ruled 30+ years of economic policy is “trickle-down economics”: 30 years of failure, when contrasted to economic policies of the ’50s and ’60s – two of our best growth decades in history; their average beats what we’ve experienced since 1980 – proves this philosophy doesn’t work, but has made elitist rich wealthier at the expense of roads and bridges.”

Bo XiLai and Chinas Killer Communist

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 16, 2012

China has a long history, most of which is brutal. They are famous for china on china murders.

Things have not changed
“According to the UK’s Daily Mail, rumors say that Bo and his wife Gu Kailai arranged for a China Northern Airlines flight from Beijing to Dalian to crash, killing all 112 people on board, in order to eliminate the wife of his political rival.

In Chongqing, in order to carry out an urban renewal project to which local residents objected, it is rumored that Bo in April 2010 ordered an electronics mall to be burned down at night. About 300 firefighters and 46 fire vehicles were deployed to evacuate 231 people from the mall. Fortunately, nobody died in the fire while only eight people were sent to hospital.”

Singapore Feels The Rise of China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 16, 2012

Here is what migration with Chinese characteristics has wrought.
“SINGAPORE — A wealthy Chinese expatriate who crashed his million-dollar Ferrari into a taxi killing himself and two others has sparked outrage in Singapore, where anti-immigrant sentiment is on the rise.
Websites were swamped Monday with postings attacking Chinese and other foreigners in the city-state after it was reported that a 52-year-old local cabbie had died of his injuries following Saturday’s pre-dawn accident.
The crash instantly killed the 31-year-old Ferrari driver, Ma Chi, while the taxi passenger, a 41-year-old Japanese woman, died in hospital two hours later, a police spokeswoman told AFP.
Police gave no other details but local media said the Ferrari driver was a financial adviser from Sichuan who was applying for permanent residency and already living in a Singapore penthouse with his family.
Disgruntled locals seized on the incident as another reason to attack the government’s immigration policies and the presence of more than a million foreign workers and professionals in the crowded city-state.
Foreigners are blamed for pushing up living costs, straining public transport and stealing jobs, with mainland Chinese bearing the brunt of attacks.”
