Quite right.

Both countries have their good and bad points.

Both governments are included in that.

Don't get me wrong: I love America -we have many blessings, but we have many, many problems, from the world's highest incarceration numbers AND the highest incarceration *RATES* in percentages -to health, disease, crime, and divorce problems.
May God bless you; I know that I need all the blessings of God, as I have less freedoms and various oppressions in my country -and then, add to that that I myself am human and subject to mistakes.

Nn ho, Din Gocn. Hello.( I remember only a few Chinese phrases, but I use a few to show respect and be interesting.)

In case you ever get bored, my websites, as shown in my profile, here, have much information on a wide range of subject.

I know that it is much more difficult for Chinese speakers to learn English than, for example, than Japanese, where at least the letters (or symbols) are somewhat similar to yours.

Also, in many college programs here in the states, it is required for students to take a foreign language, and most seem to take Spanish for several reasons:

#1: English is much more similar to Spanish than to, for example, any of the Asian or Arabic languages -both the writing and pronunciations.

(English and Spanish, like German and French, are, as I recall, Latin-based languages.)

#2: Mexico is much closer to USA than most other countries.

#3: Although Canada is also close (with French-speaking citizens), it seems that most Mexicans immigrate here -probably due to economic hardships.

*** When I took classes up to Spanish 3 in college and got all A's, I figured Id take one semester of Chinese language since, after all, there are more Chinese people in the planet than any other.

It was super difficult, and I barely remember a few spoken phrases and symbols or letters! I had to change from a letter grade to "pass-fail," to keep from hurting my Grade Point Average -and I barely passed!

In any event, I wonder: What percentage of citizens in your country know English?

Also, what is the largest method that Chinese citizens use to learn English?

College? Television? Government programs for business professionals?

Lastly, I wonder, what levels of freedom of expression do your citizens have?

Oh, I forgot one more thing: What levels of freedom of religion and worship do your citizens have currently, and how are future prospects looking?

My guess is that, like most or all countries, the answer is not all one direction or the other, but rather, in the middle somewhere.

(I recall being told that those in the country and farms areas have a little bit more freedom than those in the big cities but have less financial resources than those in the city. Is this true?)

(Please do not say something that will anger or offend your government or fellow-citizens. Please do not get yourself into trouble.) Thank you in advance. Xie xie. I hope that your citizens and your government can get along and co-exist peacefully. Zai jian. See you later.

Hi Sage,

Acually I'm an Australian living in China so English is no problem, haha.

Now Chinese, well that's a different story. Unless you sit down and learn the characters you have almost no chance of attaining fluency. I'm too lazy so I have enough to get by and I;m happy with that.

How many Chinese speak English. That is a difficult question. Chinese by nature,(the majority), are quite shy and although they may know some English, will rarely be game enough to try.

For that matter, when I ask for something in Chinese, and I mean perfect Chinese, they will often appear to not understand. I often ask my wife, "was my pronunciation wrong, why do they do this to me". Perfect", she replies, "they just don't expect a foreigner to speak English".

Strange. I mean if my dog said hello to me in English, I'd be shocked. I might think, sh&t, that's one clever dog but I would know he spoke to me.

China. Wonderful country, warts and all, and always full of surprises.

Now Gordon, I can't see your web site in China. Likely your sharing a server with hundreds and someone is blocked so the whole server is blocked. It's rare but it happens.

Seems you're into religion which I dislike. I am a firm believer in God but religion is just mans way of using God for his own power. Anyway, good luck to you. I've met many Christians, Moslems, Hindu's Janes etc I like and many I don't like. Hope your one of the real ones.

Well, I do occasionally go to church or seminary to study and better myself, but, not I'm not into religion.

As you remember: Jesus was not into religion either, and he chewed out the religious leaders for being dishonest.

In fact, while most people don't want to harm you, most of them won't HELP you if it even slightly inconveniences them.

So, yes, you're right to believe in a God: I am a Biological and Chemical science double major, and I don't see how life could have created itself -when even WE HUMANS with technology out the yazoo could not create life.

Ergo, there must be some type God.

I am human, but I try to be real -I don't get "saved" by being "good" (no one, exceopt you know who, was really a good human), but rather I am "good" to the extent I am able because of being "saved" or helped by the Creator who is obviously greater than me.

By the way, if you're not a native to China, why'd you chose a Chinese screen name? Why not something like John, Adam, or Fred? Just curious.

Lastly, here are all five websites: Maybe ONE of them will be allowed:

Main namesake website:

Alternate namesake website:

Additional Research on Tripod:
* http://gordon_watts.tripod.com /consumer.html

Note, the last link may not be clickable; you may have to copy and paste it.

Also, it won't work with a "www" in front -only without.

Otherwise, it is like a "wrong number" on a telephone call or a 404 page not found error.

Funny computer servers!!

I am "Gordon Wayne Watts," and I reside in Lakeland, Florida, and searcheable in yahoo or google.

Lastly, here are links to a major lawsuit in which I became involved. I did better than former Gov. Jeb Bush in suing the same people:

My case: I lost 4-3 in my bid to save Terri. Note: I am NOT a lawyer, God help me! What I did was statistically unlikely:
* www.floridasupremecourt.org/clerk/disposition...

Jeb Bush's suit:
* www.floridasupremecourt.org/clerk/disposition...

Jeb lost 7-0. Oh, on my of my pages, I have light midi music -easy and fast-loading.

Great idea.
Ship all that filthy pollution from making your cheap toys back to America.
You should tell your elected representative that you want to clean up China and move polluting industries overseas.
Or you should elect new representatives that will look out for you and your family's health and welfare.

You can't do either--- And that is the problem.
You are being held hostage by a communist government that does whatever it wants and enslaves it's people. We love the Chinese people. It is your government that is the problem.

I agree as well.
We should contact our elected officials and let them know in no uncertain terms that our main consideration lies in making China more democratic.
If China's leaders were accountable for their failures, none of this would have happened.
But they are not---so they do not care about the deaths of dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of babies, if it interferes with their propaganda show.
We must do this for us, our children, the people in China, and their children.
We must do it because it is the right thing to do.
Off course you agree, you are the same person.
