Have you noticed all the news from China is bad?

Not just their virus, but that life there is sad:

Oppression and smog, Internet beratement,

Just eating fries is political statement!

Floods, executions, and Hong Kong unrest,

Where do they find time to make such protest?


To make such protest or to make so much stuff?
From chips to chains Chinese can't make enough.
They must work between earthquakes and baby-food scares,
Do post-flooding overtime to make legs for chairs,
And now with this virus thing, Alibaba might fail
To bring me my buy, or will Jack Ma prevail?
Well, they seem to make progress, but how I can't see,
Maybe that's why they've got that slave-driver Xi,
Commies have a bite that's hard as a viper,
And have folks mesmerized like the Pied Piper.
CNN said they're adding nanos to tea
That turn folks into zombies by rays of 5G.
Russia's another where everything goes wrong,
Corruption runs rife so that Putin stays strong.
Folks don't have kids because their lives are so bad,
While Vlady spends dough on his Arab comrade,
Guns down opponents and games our election,
Making it look like old Don's our selection.
Yes, though daily I check the channels and Times,
Keeping watch on humanity's busy enzymes,
From neither do I ever hear any good news,
Not even so much as a cat-in-tree schmooze,
'Cause the Chinese eat cat and Russia axed trees:
Dictatorships, Fox says, just do as they please.

I spent ten years in China teaching at medical schools related to hospitals my great great grandfather built between 1866-1901 ( I married a Chengdu woman, to make the world a smaller place; like my father who married a German woman after WWII.

The USA needs an enemy to justify all its military, CIA, NSA, TSA, Homeland Security, Imperialistic policies.

The US blames China for stealing jobs, yet it was misguided Reagan domestic/foreign policies that off-shored/out-sourced American manufacturing there. To encourage CEO's like the current IMPOTUS to create its family products that are tariff exempt. Ivanka received 18 Chinese trademarks in 2 months last year (

The MSN use race, gender and religious grounds to justify US racist and bigoted attitudes they utilize when conveying the fear message meant to foster hate. While Republican "Christian" preachers pound into their flocks the need to justify using weapons to cleanse what ills the country; while supporting officials who deny what is written in the Bible.

Though the current flu virus befalling China and the world is unfortunate, blamed on bats, one must recall in China's recent past millions died of starvation and old habits are hard to eliminate. I can't fathom why people still eat deer, squirrel and other game with the prion-brain disease inflicting these game animals?
