    Why should they take us seriously... look at our "leaders" of government. If I were them, I wouldn't take America seriously either.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That you think browsing Chinese discussion boards will provide you with some sort of legitimate understanding concerning how the Chinese people feel pretty much proves how seriously anyone should take your opinion of China.

    As for the apologies, I know what you men Demon and Guy, but it is much more prevalant in cultures here, but to be sure, it is also a phenomon in Western cultures (especially in public life and politics)
    I don't care because that is just your excuse. When someone provides something that makes China look better you turn around and say it is a lie or trick and you did it again here. That is not understanding the culture, that is a pattern. Cases such as this prove it has nothing to do with your feelings about the Chinese government, but instead represents your general attitude towards China and the Chinese people.

    The fact that he is Taiwanese and lives in Taiwan makes him a little more in-tune with the Chinese perhaps?

    He is not Taiwanese. From what I can tell he is a white guy from New Hampshire. He just lives in Taiwan.

    You know, you should perhaps live in this part of the world sometime. I know the context of this song in Chinese history and propoganda and you obviously don't. I was there in May of 1999 when this song featured PROMINENTLY in anti-American propoganda in the wake of the bombing of the embassy in Belgrade, Yugoslavia...

    Time and again you have shown you have no idea what you are talking about...

    look at those two quotes. in successive posts did demon just accuse someone of having an invalid opinion because it's racist, and then make a racist statement?

    ba-zinga?

    Just sayin, i think living less than 100 miles away from China might give someone a little more credibility in matters regarding Chinese culture and attitudes.
