    Can't believe they are allowed to hold events like the Olympics!

    I wonder if they have extra sessions where the can pay to drop a local farmer or falun gong member they decide is a dissident?
  2. Yoikes.

    Mind you, with the amount of money coming from China - it seems the west is happy to overlook the shit that goes on there.
  3. +1 remember, on the chaser how they said in China they make the family of the executed pay for the bullets used for execution.

    Something is very wrong there, and as an emerging super power, and possibly the next big super power im worried.
  4. Yep and we encourage it.

    Hands up those who own things like:

    GMC power tools
    Ryobi power tools (or any other power tools for that matter)
    most Kmart clothing
    consumer electronics such as PVRs
    Blundstone boots I think are now outsourced to China

    The list is endless...
  5. somesing else?
