“Ban China”

I love the way this guy writes.

If we are going to ban so many things, perhaps it would be best just to ban China altogether? China is certainly dangerous: It’s a nuclear power, it’s full of spoilt kids pumped full of nationalism to fill their spiritual and ideological void, and it’s going to pollute the world more and more. It’s a nuisance as well: Taking our jobs, taking our food, taking our money – good thing they aren’t taking our women because all hell would break loose.

We’ve tried to get rid of China before, and if it weren’t for those damn Commies we might have succeeded. Back to the gunboats men! You there, go stir up the Boxers! You, gather all the opium you can find! And you, go find an Emperor and instruct him to spend all his money on marble boats! For Queen and for country, my loyal legion, for Queen and for country!

The bulk of the post is on China’s “one-dog policy” and is, predictably, funny as hell. (Stylistically, he reminds me of this former Hong Kong blogger, who is still a panic to read.) And be sure to click the link he provides about how foreign women all seem to agree that Beijing is “a wasteland” for female expats looking for a hot date. It’s not the first time I’ve heard that complaint, not just about Beijing but China in general.

If this post wandered somewhat aimlessly, apologies in advance.

Perhaps the dog ban is to provide food aid to North Korea…

As for Chinese not being ready to drive, my wife and I, in our prejudice, always look in the windscreen of cars we see going VERY slowly or otherwise erratically to see if they’re guilty of “driving while Asian.” It’s the “No one exists but me” syndrome. (In them, not us.) Manufacturers put those mirrors on the sides and facing backwards for a reason, comrades.
