Q: We complain about China However are we That good?

We bitch about China However how do others see us?

Today I saw one of the most disgusting things that a human being could do

The police came and took 4 girls away from their mother and put them on a plane to their Father in another country

they were aged 9 to 15 yrs old and clearly did not want to leave their mother

The term used was Deported however the children are citizens of their mothers country

The Country ?      Australia and I have never before today Been so ashamed to Call myself Australian when this could happen.

I bet If they were of some other Nationality or another faith they would have been left alone.

so what do you not like about your country?

 

Yes I'm Pissed but totally sober

sadly the world responds to china's tantrums. (i'm assuming you are in aus and they took the kids from her aussie mom to go live in china with her chinese father)  

 

for some strange reason no one is willing to draw a line in the sand. 

 

to answer your question the difference is in what is the root of the problem. in democracies the problem is with the people, we elect incompetent leaders based on petty , silly, insignificant differences. In china everything is controlled by the govt. therefore in countries like yours and mine the people must make changes and then elect the right leaders. in china, .................................. (you get the picture)

  I love plenty about Britain, but what don't I like? America's the bully of the world and Britain's in his gang. I don't want to think about it. Don't want to think about people like Crimochina. Guy's a f******g infection.

All you have to do is go onto a website that monitors human rights protection, ease of doing business, quality and accessibility of education/healthcare/welfare, democratic accountability, environmental standards etc to see that, yes, we are THAT good. Especially our Scandinavian and Swiss cousins.

 

Neither the USA, UK or other major European economies even make the top ten in any of these things. In fact, not a single country outside of the smaller European ones (minus Australia and Canada) gets in the top ten for any of the above listed issues. Then again, China is consistently near the bottom of these lists alongside Congo, Somalia, Afghanistan, N. Korea, Chad and Yemen.

You know what, the courts and the police were right to do what they did in Australia. Neither of these girls have the legal right to pick where they live as neither of them have reached the age of majority under Australian or Italian law. Further, the Australian courts ruled that the girls should return to Italy in 2011 and rather than comply with the courts ruling, this family ignored it for a year. That's technically abduction. If the girls were being mistreated, that'd be another thing, but so far none of them are making that case.

 

That they don't like the ruling is unfortunate, but what would your country look like if people were allowed to avoid court rulings because they had an emotional response to them? 

 

"I'm sorry I killed all those people your honor, but I really, really, really don't want to go to prison!"

What do I dislike about my country? Well, let me give a small example that may as well stand in for the whole. In the US we have a television station called The Learning Chanel. When I was a kid they used to broadcast cooking shows, or shows that would teach you have to install hardwood flooring, or how to properly landscape your lawn. However, they don't really do that anymore. Now they have a show called "Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo." It's a reality TV show about a poor family from the south that likes to enroll one of their daughters, the titular Honey Boo-Boo, in child beauty pageants. In a recent episode, a their sixteen year old daughter, Honey Boo-Boo's older sister, gave birth to a kid that had six fingers on one of its hands. That's what I dislike about my country.

What do I not like about my country?

 

I could really sum it up in one phrase, "Welfare state dependent, criminally lazy wank**s"

 

What is worse these non-workers get priority housing, AND are teaching their offspring (frequently of which there are many) how not to work, still get money and to 'milk' the system. Trouble is the only sure 'cure' is the eradication of the welfare state, which would deprive those most deserving (i.e. those who have worked all their lives and fell on hard times) of a vital means of support.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
