^ So how does it affect you?
Do you care so much because they might compete for the No.1 spot soon?
Do you care about the rights of the people that are being forced into slave labour?
Do you just want to have a rant and show how the way you do it so much better?
What's your motive Iconic?
My company hired 2 Chinese guys who spent 3 months in the states being trained and all that other stuff.
Within the 3 months I got cool with one of them who explained to me how China is really and how much he appreciated America and the freedoms we have here.
On this forum I've constantly seen you guys praise China and back the country simply on the basis of knocking America. When I asked what it was about China you guys backed so much all I heard was ..........
When I asked what (non-foreign) Chinese products you like all I heard was .........
I have nothing against China or its people but I do have something against people being treated unfairly. I also know that there is little we can do the WORST FUCKING THING we could do is be indifferent to it and just ignore it because... their economy is booming.
I could care less if we're "#1" in the world. We could be 500th and I'd still love this country for what it was founded on. Its rich proud history and the advancements we've been able to make as a unified people. Sure we've made mistakes but we've moved beyond that.
Women couldnt vote. They didnt like it. The were heard and got their voting rights.
Blacks couldn't do anything. They didnt like it. They stood up, marched and got their rights.
We're not perfect but we've done REALLY fucking good for a country that opens its arms to people of EVERY color and creed. There will always be racist individuals and arguments about religions but at least here we can openly talk about ANYTHING in hopes of getting somewhere. And we have.
Try and have 3 different buildings of worship (Christian, Jewish and Muslim) on the same block somewhere else.
