In China, a recoil against xenophobia

Full story: The Washington Post

This time, however, the technique does not seem to be working as well as it used to.

Doubtful as he is PAID a nickel a post by the Chinese Communist Party to be "shifty, evasive, and inherantly dishonest" as a "wu mao" in the CCP's "Public Guidance apparatus!

China is an ABNORMAL country and all dealings with its ABNORMAL public policy or ABNORMAL society are made filthy and illogical by the CCP's dictatorial grip on that poor and pathetic nation.

Good luck applying normal logic or standards of decency when dealing with such a slimeball. It is impossible to have a civilized discussion with these CCP criminal traitors to their own people.

Strange. Not a very good business model. They could make a lot more money picking up and recycling plastic bottles in China and do a far better service.

Don't get me wrong. I'm all for the paying them a nickel a post. Now that's regime money well spent. I can't think of any quicker way for them to commit collective party suicide and be judged guilty in the world court of public opinion.

Check out the wiki page for the "Wu Mao" or "fifty cent" gang ("wu mao" means "five dimes" in Chinese which is 1/2 RMB (Yuan) or about 7 cents US right now):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/50_Cent_Party

Here's a quote:
"In March 2005, the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China enacted a systematic censorship of Chinese college bulletin board systems. The popular "Little Lily" BBS, ran by Nanjing University, was forced to close. As a new system was prepared to be launched, school officials hired students as part-time web commentators, paid from the university's work-study funds, to search the forum for undesirable information and actively counter it with Party-friendly viewpoints. In the following months, party leaders from Jiangsu province began hiring their own teams.[8] By mid-2007, web commentator teams recruited by schools, and party organizations were common across China. Shanghai Normal University employed undergraduates to monitor for signs of dissent and post on university forums.[9] These commentators not only operate within political discussions, but also in general discussions.[8][9] Afterwards, some schools and local governments also started to build similar teams.[10][11][12]

On 23 January 2007, Chinese leader Hu Jintao demanded a "reinforcement of ideological and public opinion front construction and positive publicity" at the 38th collective learning of Politburo.[13] Large Chinese websites and local governments have been requested to publish the sayings of Hu, and select "comrades with good political quality" to form "teams of Internet commentators" by the CPC Central Committee (&#20013;&#20849;& #20013;&#22830;&#21150 ;&#20844;&#21381;) and General Office of the State Council (&#22269;&#21153;& #38498;&#21150;&#20844 ;&#21381;).[8][14]"

These are all facts.

Judge accordingly.

1. In order for China to emerge as a global leader, it has win the respect of the world.
2. The US has many flaws, however it's past achievement record is undeniable.
3. If the Chinese want to establish a good reputation for high quality goods, ideas, models, etc., they'll have to earn it. However, many Chinese people are still uneducated 70% or more of the population.
4. Will the Chinese government let its people be educated?
5. China is at a very good point where it can attract high investment business to help it's people/economy versus protecting domestic industries.

6. China will need to adopt some outside world perspectives, because so much of the outside world has shaped history for the past 50 years.

7. I think this is an incredibly exciting and scary time for China and the World. As culture and ideas clash, mix, and battle.

Part Capitalist, mostly Communist government though. The people are being "excessively controlled" & do not enjoy their full human rights yet. This is not a good thing for Chinese or foreigners living in China.

I think I may have worked it out.

He doesn't count human beings as people unless they are in the CCP ruling elite. The rest are just trained animals.

Surely a serial liar like you could at least make one up?

Just one way Chinese people have more freedoms than those in the west..........

If that's too hard, how about a single way they're better off than Somalians?
