Buck, who are you trying to convince ? Yourself ? This is ridiculous.Emanuel Goldstein China is a wonderful place, people get exactly what we decide they deserve and they better like it or else. There is no better place to live, except for North Korea where the people are happy,, even more obedient, and bow to their superiors.
Like condo buildings in Florida ? Except three gorges hasn't burst and isn't going to. That's in your head. Has been for a few years now.Poor quality dams are a good thing because they help to reduce the population when they burst.
"Disobediant" ? What the fuck is wrong with you ?I know it would be better to just grind up those disobedient poor people for an additional food source but the other countries would balk at doing that.
Better go hide under the bed, Buck. Lotsa commies out there and they're all comin' ta getcha.Just wait until we take over Taiwan and the USA so the world will become a better place with all of them under proper rules.
Lessee .... lived in six factories and the back room of a restaurant in Beijing for a while, sold the left over vegetables to the old neighborhood ladies at a card table on the street for a couple weeks, that was a kick. Also in numerous houses, sometimes properly registered and sometimes forgot, oops. One place even came with ancestors in a pot, which they'd come and burn incense to on Saturday mornings unannounced while I was in the shower. Installed K&T and Cincinnati and Gleason and Fellows machines mostly, some OKK and Mazak, ick, (actually the OKK's were decent, the Mazaks nothing special and their support both US and China sucks balls), personally got them running and taught people to use them and program them. Wired one shop -- okay, rewired it because the so-called electricians did it all wrong. Redid the air so it worked. Got all their stuff up and running and rebuilt the spindle on an Awea gantry mill. Piece of shit, really, but did cut metal. Rebuilt a lead and involute tester to use for qualifying when we scrounged through a batch of twenty clapped-out #7's to get five or six that would consistently cut AGMA 9's. Got those guys into shaving. Got a 56" bevel planer and a #24 rougher-finisher working in a place that didn't even have a Bridgeport for tooling and maintenance purposes. Angle grinder, anybody ? That was in wondrful democratic traditional Taiwan, what a joke. Walt Disney's version of China. Fixed a Femco wheel turning lathe for a supplier. Set up and ran q/c on automotive wheels. Nobody dead that I know of. Got #22 Gleasons running in production - scariest machine to set up ever. Ran parts on the Awea when no one else would because they were convinced it was no good. Helped redesign the table on a two meter gear shaper for a special purpose. And got laid a lot. Sat in the bottom of the tub daily pouring the tea water out of a thermos over my filthy self after putting together a KT 800 all day, because the hot water heater was broken. Then had to play gan bei gan bei for dinner and snooker in the middle of a village with 10,000 spectators and sadly bent cues and a table that resembled the moon, and I don't even know the rules. Watched fifties movies on hard wooden chairs in the recreation house, and on weekends helped build the brick walls for their new kindergarten. I'm not too bad with bricks. Lived and worked in at least ten different cities and provinces. Plenty I've forgotten. China's good, for me. A zoo, but never a dull moment.Emanuel Goldstein what position do/did you hold..have you ever worked in China as a lathe operator, grinder hand or any common skill or labor job?
That's great for you but they don't want that life. They don't want your life. They want their own. They don't have the same values. Their country is 2500 years old. It's different. Chinese people are happy with their own country, their own government, their own life styles. They don't want your stuff. They don't think it's cool.I was a labor and skilled worker and an engineer and did very well, had a good life with owning a house, having good cars, boats, nice vacations, sent my kids to higher learning (one to college and one a high-grade trade school and I am just a dummy who was willing to work..and yes, started a grinding shop. Yes, I would wish such a life to China working people, they deserve as much.
You just keep yours and let them keep theirs and quit obsessing over how speshul you are, how about that ? Here's a hint - they think different than you. And that's their right.
Not exactly. More like you pulled this silly garbage about three gorges out your ass so you could snivel about "the poor chinese, if they only had a wonderful country like us" bla bla bla. Please understand this : they don't want your life. They don't want your government. They think it's incompetent and worthless. They don't like it. They have different values which they have gained through two thousand fucking years and your pipsqueak little screeching carries zero weight. None. Interesting to hear about maybe but that's all, not something they want anywhere near their own place.A darn shame, I talked about the 3 Gorges Dam and the conversation went political
And they won't even talk about it because what they want to hear is, in order:
How old are you ?
How much money do you make ?
Are you married ?
How many children ?
They can and will converse on those subjects for hours. Those are THE Four Standard Questions Chinese people ask foreigners. That's what they care about. Not the evils of communism now how xi jinping is infringing on their liberties.
Your fixations are about as interesting as, to use the native phrase, "a smelly turd in the shithouse".
You got that right because you don't know or understand or even try to understand a fucking thing. You've never been within half a planet of the place, why do you keep insisting you know all about it ? This is like hearing a pottery guy from yunan tell us about living in Compton. It's ridiculous. Retarded. Stupid.Re: Mind you own business Buck, ...
Worry about something else. China is fine. They are doing well. They are happy. And the three gorges dam is not going to break. Not in our lifetime, anyhow.
