    What if the reverse happened?

    Should any fuss over any song be deemed childish?

    Are you for real?

    Do you ever post in a format that doesn't consist of two questions?

    Lang Lang, who lives in both the United States and China, issued a statement saying that "I selected this song because it has been a favorite of mine since I was a child. It was selected for no other reason but for the beauty of its melody."

    He said his goal was to "bridge cultures together through the beauty and inspiration of music … America and China are my two homes. I am most grateful to the United States for providing me with such wonderful opportunities, both in my musical studies and for furthering my career."

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Sounds pretty reasonable to me. Some people will go to such great lengths to be offended by anything.

    Ultimately, who really cares?

    If they were trying to play little games in order to send a cute message to the faithful back home then they will not be teated seriously as a people.

    They were cheap suits anyway.

    Re: Chinese Pianist Plays Propaganda Tune at White House

    bottom line---hu wipes his florsheim's on our presidential doormat

    currency, climate, korea, taiwan, tibet, human rights, sanctions vs iran...

    the council on foreign relations---"amateur hour at the white house"

    do you KNOW leslie gelb?

    the natl journal---"obama's RODNEY DANGERFIELD moment"

    are you FAMILIAR with mr schroth?

    der spiegel---"obama's nice guy act gets him nowhere"

    the gray lady (nyt)---"obama REJECTED on world stage"

    what counterargument can you put up vs this consensus of elite analysis?

    ie, what has over-his-head obama accomplished on the world stage?

    and, specifically, with the chinese?

    on currency, climate, korea, sanctions...

    when is he gonna change america's image abroad?

    y'know, for the better?

    this piano recital by the propagandist pianist is but a symptom of the problem

    obama has made the united states an international whipping post

    are you aware of what hu did to the doormat at copenhagen?

    Low targets, goals dropped: Copenhagen ends in failure | Environment | guardian.co.uk

    all our president could do was get pissy

    it's the tiffany network (paley's cbs) that called out this happy little hymn as the "widely known anti american propaganda song" about the "people's volunteer (LOL!) army defeating united states military jackals"

    a "leading piece of anti american propaganda by the ccp for decades"

    the worst human rights abusers on the planet

    and obama sits by, humming

    he shows far greater animus vs the BRITS and ISRAELIS than he does vs the regime that currently jails his fellow NOBEL peace prize winner

    pathetic
