Q: Why you should never call SAFEA....

I had a friend who was a honorable and noble teacher who was beloved by all, especially the dean of his department. The dean however was mortally wounded in an administrative accident after his assistant had given him too much wine. On his deathbed this dean gave the order to give his trusted teacher a morning-only schedule, signed and sealed with his personal chop.

 

Confident that his schedule was secure this teacher went about his business in keeping faith with the old & honorable Dean. The new dean however insisted that he would need to take afternoon classes on Wednesdays in direct violation of the orders and wishes of the outgoing dean. Desperate to contain the situation, this noble & honorable teacher called up the local SAFEA office.

 

SAFEA swore on their honor to assist this man in speaking to the new dean and sent six SAFEA guards with him as an honor guard. However, when he showed the letter promising the schedule to the new dean, she tore it up and threw it on the ground. The SAFEA guards sent to protect him turned their SAFEA Tasers on the teacher and seized him at once. Betrayal!

 

This man spent the next two weeks in a dark SAFEA cell. SAFEA promised him that if he confessed to conspiring against the school’s scheduling office, his life would be spared and he would be allowed to take the vows and serve out the rest of his days as a man of the China Scam Watch. If he didn’t confess, the return plane tickets for his children would only be partially reimbursed and then only if the school was allowed to choose the flights.

 

Honorable to the last and desperate to protect his family, in front of the entire student body he confessed to crimes he did not commit. Yet where mercy was promised, none was given. The new dean had the hangman waiting and in front of a cheering crowd the confessed traitor was given his punishment. The crowd cheered, and the head SAFEA agent was given a cushy position as Dean of the Dining Hall for his role in this outrage.

 

No one ever found out what happened to the poor teacher, his sobbing students could only stare at the empty lectern, waiting for the teacher who would never come…

I remember reading about this on the CFTU website. In fact, the teacher's son travelled to Beijing to talk with the CEO of the head office.

On the way he stopped at Shanghai. He needed Guanxi to take on the CEO and so agreed to marry a minor officials daughter. Whilst on a day trip to the French concession in Shanghai he met a big bummed "beauty" called Victoria. He secretly married her and got her pregnant. When the minor official heard this he was outraged. Eager to quell the official's anger and try and regain the Guanxi he had lost the son agreed for his cousin to marry the official's daughter instead. He travelled to the wedding with his wife. They had a great wedding, everyone was happy and he would finally be able to avenge what happened to his father. The official stood up to give a toast to the son. The music changed to xiao pinguo, the son was confused. Someone walked up behind him and whispered into his ear "The SAFEA send their regards" and slit his throat. As he lay dying on the ground he watched helplessly as Victoria was stabbed repeatedly in the stomach and fell to the ground.

While everybody was wondering what happened to the teacher and family, in the meanwhile the new dean took charge and started making new rules, all the FT's were asked to work one extra hour on Saturday mornings, aggravated by this, but having no other option at the moment they all continued to yield to the vicious temper and sadistic streak. having a strong guanxi helped, his cruelty and ignorance makes him unpopular after he gets non-native FT on very low pay and makes them work extra hours…

What about the teachers' family in Foreignland? They must certainly be calling on their bannermen to plot revenge against the forces of SAFEA.

Mega News Update! NSA admits to daring scheme! reportedly demanding they hand over loyal SAFEA teachers to prove fealty!

 

http://www.wallstreetjournal.com/globa/SAFEAstory.html

 

In a move that even Pol Pot and stalin would condemn violently as being a little over the top, the NSA is demanding that SAFEA hand over to them the teachers who are the most loyal SAFEA supporters...promising they will be allowed forthhence to join the China Scam Watch but this is doubtful at best.

 

"The problem is that SAFEA is such a treacherous organization, but people still believe that if they are loyal to them and stay in constant contact that SAFEA will protect them once the NSA demand their 'pound-of-flesh', this is false on every level.", Vladimir Putin stated during an exclusive interview. Vlad continued, "But the SAFEA-loyalists are just so naive they think that SAFEA wouldn't hand them over for their 30 pieces of silver. SMH...I bet they'll all be replaced with chatbots while the originals serve out their lives in the China Scam Watch."

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-25/losers-malice-whats-behind-obam...

«NATO remains a military alliance,’ he said, «and we are against having a military alliance making itself at home right in our backyard or in our historic territory», Putin said

What Obama must hate most of all is Putin’s exposure of US support for Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. Who indeed is responsible for the «slaughter» in Syria? Obama calls it fighting for democracy. «Airstrike democracy», Putin once derisively replied. «Do you realise what you have done?» Putin asked at the UN in 2015, shocking the MSM. Obviously not, if one is to judge by Obama’s remarks of the last few days. He’s still the obsessive adolescent with doubts about himself and in over his head against a real statesman. Thank heavens Obama is on his way out the door of the White House. It’s not a minute too soon. Olliver Cromwell’s famous remark in 1653 to the Rump Parliament seems apposite. «You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately... Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!»

Commenting disabled, so here's for the 'raincoats' thingy:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-26/vladimir-putin’s-christmas-speech-russian-leader-criticizes-western-countries-abando

 

Here's another shit post -- because things are slow. This one goes out to the democratic party, those Vlad haters out there this holiday season.

If you've ever wondered why Putin appeals to so many stable minded people in the United States, look no further than this speech where the Russian leader lays into Euro-Atlantic nations for abandoning its Christian roots, placing homosexual relationships on the same level as families, fomenting an environment for paedophilia and creating an atmosphere which will eventually lead to the degradation of civility -- leading to the loss of dignity.

 

Powerful stuff.

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
