China finally came to realize what the Roman Emperors knew long ago, if you want people to tow the line and keep their mouths shut - and look good in the process- give them bread and circuses, it works so much better than austerity and punishment and is also excellent propaganda.

Oh yeah, the slopes look great. They killed an American family, blocked internet access, cheated in gymnastics, told a poor little girl she was too ugly to sing live, roughed up reporters who asked questions and paraded around a bunch of armed guards. Good going, China. This will certainly assuage all who've questioned whether you're a third world repressive state or not. I say to the chinks: Eat your fried rice and shut the hell up!


While this post was wildly vulgar and worded with a slew of rude impressions. I have no option but to agree whole heartedly on all points. Great post :)

Cock and Balls Story

America is way better than China in doing the things you mentioned. Ask a non-american, they will tell you that! The filthy land of america produced both cheating athletes and whining citizens. You crack down minorities' rights, as demonstated in the Oscar winning movie "Crash"; You had Jones and a bunch of other doping queens and kings; you invaded other countries in the name of intl policemen. Give me a break! Ask anyone who went to the Olympics in China. They will shout loudly at you: you are blind eyed only knew sh*ts. China win the applause from people at home and abroad, at least in this games.

Cock and Balls Story is definitely a good-for-nothing. You think you are educated in the most advanced nation. But who can tell you are not a degenerated freak? If the advanced nation has educated people like you, it is too ironical.

Have you ever been to China. Do you really know the history of China. The rubish american media only produce biased and vicious reports. Do you really know what is supposed to talk about here? You are an idiot no one else comes near.

The fact that you have to use racist name-calling and stereotypes against the Chinese easily places you within the class of the uneducated. The fact that you brag about being educated in the United States proves you aren't the most cunning person. The fact that you dont get your facts straight about Chinese secrets make you an idiot caught red-handed.

If you are going to use such vulgar language, expect to receive angry flamers in return. Why are you trying to pick a fight that is much bigger than one you can handle?

Way to be racist. They can see as much as you, regardless of our "slit eyes."

[quote="Cock and Balls Story"]I was educated in the most advanced nation in the world. While I might not be familiar with the ancient Chinese secrets of doing laundry and preparing raw fish meals, I think I do pretty well for myself being well-educated in other more important things.[/quote]

US is an advanced nation, but that doesn't mean you are well educated. You should do some research before you spout out useless information. You are ignorant in the fact that China has advanced greatly in a short amount of time, while it took the US longer to advance to what it is now.

[quote="Cock and Balls Story"]We don't have dopers. We had athletes that the IOC unfairly accused of doping. We don't put 9-year-olds in Olympic competitions nor do we repress innocent Tibetans and those that might disagree with Communist party chairmen. Suki suki on that, Mr. Ching Chong. I think the MSG coupled with excess radiation from the little party we had in the Orient some 60 some odd years ago might have affected your pea-sized brain. Now, practice writing the only response your kind could ever say to us Americans: "Me rove you rong time!" [/quote]

US do have dopers. Why else do they have their own doping agency? Also, you accuse China of having underage athletes. Ha, that's a laugh. You think they are young based on your perception, but your eyes can deceive you. There's some people who look young, but are actually quite older than you think. Apparently, you haven't encountered one yet.
Yes, you don't repress Tibetans, but you people are rude in the fact that you protest during the Olympic torch, especially when it was going to be Beijing's first Olympics. You guys even wanted to boycott the Olympics. Wow, that sure is honorable and respectful towards the eyes of the Chinese. Apparently you don't care; based on your tone, you are a racist, ignorant, and a dumb-witted person.
Oh, the Chinese have pea brains. Yeah right. Look at how much Chinese (and the Indian) doctors there are compared to the American doctors. With the American "No Child Left Behind," that goes to show that America is lowering its standards so that children (most who don't give a shit) can catch up with the intelligent ones.
I would like to see you try to pronounce things in Chinese in China and not screw up in front of the Chinese people. Oh wait! You can't! Try other languages, too. The Chinese knows how to speak a few English, but cannot pronounce it very well. If you actually try to learn another language, you would know it is tough task to perfect your second language. It's good that the Chinese are bilingual; it goes to show that they have a greater brain capacity than you.

@Cock and Balls Story

I have no regret in rebutting a fellow American.

But why are all of your comments based on weak stereotypes? If you are so educated as you claim to be, have you not learned that it is not the Chinese who steal our American jobs, but rather the Irish Americans and Latinos. This has dated back about a hundred years. The Chinese have actually contributed more than they have stolen from the U.S.

But to get back on topic, yes, China put on a spectacular but unrealistic face of itself. But what country wouldn't?

The only people who have stolen highly confidential secrets from our government was Nixon and his ragatag gang of cronies, and he failed at that too. Not to mention the Rosenberg couple who stole the recipe for the Atomic bomb.

Again Bejiing, don't you have somewhere better to be every night of the last couple of weeks besides Topix complaining about America? Americans is there, go complain to their faces, although it is doubtful the majority of Chinese spectators at the games would allow you to. Or hey, why don't you go and enjoy the greatest athletes in the world? Christ, you're right there!

@Cock and Balls Story: Americans go to China. Haven't you heard of the word "tourism?"

Congratulations, you called the Chinese animals. You're right. Logically speaking, since the Chinese are humans and the Americans are humans, along with everyone else, that makes every person in this world an animal, including you. Don't believe it? Look up the term "Homosapien." We are part of the animal kingdom.

Oh yes, you can claim the Chinese have stolen your jobs, but who's fault is that? You guys. Americans who consider the Chinese stealing their jobs, probably don't work as hard or aren't as educated as them. Why else would they be more accepted to jobs than you unemployed folks? Hypothetically speaking, if the Chinese goes back to their own country, the Americans would have a lot less doctors working in hospitals. That means a bigger death rate for you guys, considering hospitals are almost always busy. Looking at this, it goes to show how great we are to help you Americans live and prosper. Yes, there are some American doctors to help you, but when there is low supply and high demand. Chaos can commence.

It's about lower wages in other countries and government devils in backrooms making deals. China and many other countries are not dealing with all the socio-political labor groups. In fact, weren't the Chinese liberating slave factories left and right just before the Olympics in China? Well, that is what the China news said anyway.

It's not about Americans being uneducated or not working hard enough, although I am sure you got all flushed with false pride when saying it. I don't think the Chinese have a corner on the MD market either, even if that were true, I don't think the medical industry would fall apart, but thanks for the illusion.

You responded to a slob with equal slobbiness so I wanted to end this desperate and bitter cycle with some facts, that's all.

The blame shouldn't have been on the Chinese workers, rather the businesses. That's what started this conversation (one of the reasons anyways).

I didn't say that the American medical industry would fall apart. All I said is that it would be chaotic in American hospitals for the Chinese doctors in America to leave and go back to China, since they have more responsibility in their hands. It would be foolish to fire all the Chinese who are "stealing Americans' jobs."

How is that equal slobbiness? This is all based on my observations with people relating to employment. I haven't seen anything differently than either the unemployed Americans are not working hard enough or are not well educated. If I had, then I wouldn't have only provided two options. I find it hard to believe otherwise, until I can see the evidence. Also, I said probably, which implied that I am not ABSOLUTELY postively sure that it was correct.

You wrongly accuse me of "equal slobbiness." I acknowledge there was a few parts that can be considered "absurd," but equal to his? You got to be kidding me. You overexaggerated there.

I think Cock and Balls was dumped by a very sexy Chinese-American girlfriend and is still rather bitter about that. All of this over the Olympics - but I suppose it's a sign of our long, slow slip from superpower status.. Sad.

Good thing I hate everyone equally otherwise I would be offended by Cock and Balls who was clearly educated at Devry. Hey C&B were your mother and father related, I don't buy for a minute that you are from NY...
