Happy Chines new year

Severe winter weather has hit most of China leaving thousands of travellers stranded for days. In the Guangzhou railway station 170,000 people are camped out waiting for a train home and by monday its expected to reach as many as 600,000. That is in one city and there are a lot more cities like it

Just watching the news on TV I can understand why its so bad, i saw more than one hundred soldiers with shovels and sweeping brushes trying to clear an expressway thousands of km long

Men climbing pylons with hammers to break the ice off and its a big country with just a few million pylons

Trains stranded for three days (miles from the nearest food supply) and no heating

This is what you call getting caught with your pants down

ERIC.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

LoL, the fines like the cane are there to keep the shitbag foreigners from behaving like they do in LA. Sing kids are great , smart, caring, respectful and well educated their lucky money will be spent on gambling .
