    Ludahai does. He constantly complains about how evil everything from China is. I'd love to stop hearing his daily rants on the issue. Taipei has received American funding for its infrastructure, communications, educational system and ludahai has enough dumplings in his jeans to tell us that African Americans need to stop complaining about oppression and simply get their **** to get together. That's easy enough to say when the reason for your country's succes is directly related to being given the funding and technology denied to inner city schools during the same period where people in the US were still fighting for voting rights. The ridiculous conservative axiom of 'personal responsability' is just that; a ridiculous conservative axiom. It doesn't apply to small farmers who receive government help, it doesn't apply to countries who are dependent on the US to back them, it doesn't apply to anything other than whatever it is they want it to apply to.

    Can you count population? Can you compare? Taipei is the FOURTH most populous city... You are the FAIL!!!
    What... are you even talking about? Did you follow the conversation? Or are you lost again?

    And Chinese Taipei is not the name of the country I live in... it is a coward's term forced on Taiwan...

    The FAIL is yours...
    Meh, the people of Chinese Taipei don't seem to have the necessary nuts in order to do anything about it. So how can you possibly tell who the cowards are?

    You're on an internet forum. You don't "hear" anything. If you don't respect someone else's opinion, don't read it. simple as that.

    Taipei has received American funding for its infrastructure, communications, educational system and ludahai has enough dumplings in his jeans to tell us that African Americans need to stop complaining about oppression and simply get their **** to get together. That's easy enough to say when the reason for your country's succes is directly related to being given the funding and technology denied to inner city schools during the same period where people in the US were still fighting for voting rights. The ridiculous conservative axiom of 'personal responsability' is just that; a ridiculous conservative axiom.

    I agree with this somewhat, but at least engage him with a little respect instead of being a troll. If you really believe all that bull**** about bombing the crap out of Taiwan, and that the Communist Party isn't evil, then that is seriously ****ed up and you need to take a long hard look at reality.

    If you actually knew how to read, you would note that it is China's GOVERNMENT that I believe to be evil, not everything from China. I LOVE China and many things about it. Unlike you, I have actually lived there.

    Now as for U.S. funding, what funding has Taiwan received since 1979? And that funding was given to a dictator that repressed the Taiwanese people... Taiwan is a democracy today, NO THANKS to the United States... And as for Taiwan's infrastructure? Most of the infrastructure we enjoy today was built AFTER 1979... YOU are the one who needs to get his facts straight.

    And as for "following the conversation", I noted that Taipei is the FOURTH largest city in Taiwan. You attempted to refute that, but YOU WERE WRONG!!! Once again, you have no idea what you are talking about.

    Now, get back into that trash can and stop being such an ignorant troll...

    There is no question about this. It is human nature. People have a tendency not to want to give up an advantage. We are being huge hypocrites about equality. We are lumping everyone into groups, including whites, creating rigid definitions of the groups (stereotyping of you will), and deciding who get favors, smearing the groups based on the stereotypes. There is no true spiritual leader in this country on true equality. We have no spirit just laws. The differences have been exploited to the max for political power and political groups are not going to allow those differences to be reconciled. I believe that most people want to get along, want to be fair, want justice. We need to give each other a chance to show it and stop treating everyone in a certain group based on the lowest common denominator. **** happens. Not everybody is nice but given a chance most people are pretty decent I think.
