Happy New Years to you too.
I'm glad we can agree on this.

You do make sense sometimes (not all of the time though), though you need to really balance your views on China.  This can be difficult if your wife is older and depending on her education and occupation as she may or may not know the truth or be worried about losing face.

What does my wife have to do with this thread?
Do I ask about members of your immediate family and how that might affect your perception of "the truth"?

No, but it's common knowledge you gain a lot of your insights from her. I'm not on the attack here, merely stating an observed point of view.  I know you can't read or speak Chinese except for maybe a few words. For the record my wife is also Chinese.

There are more than enough people in this forum who do nothing but bad mouth China.
So I am adding balance to this forum by not being one of them.

I could say some bad things about China.
For instance, I can't find the stuff to make lasagna with. At least not yet.
My favorite foods include Italian and Mexican and I an having a devil of a time finding any
ingredients to make my own. I gave up on trying to find any restaurants that serve good
Italian and Mexican foods in the city I live in. I would gladly settle for a "Taco Bell" fast food
restaurant but they don't seem to have Taco Bell in China. I'll make my own Italian foods
if I can find lasagna noodle, mozzarella cheese, and ricotta cheese. I can make my own
tomato sauce but first I have to find basil.
I don't know where to find tortillas either.

The US constitution was written by oligarchs for oligarchs.
It is the common man who has to fight  ...

Now, I don't disagree that the US (and all democracies) are dominated to some extent by the wealthy ("oligarchs"). And I agree the 2nd Amendment must be abolished because it no longer serves to drive natives from the land. But, Robert, the stolen land (which the natives were not utilizing fully because most were hunter-gatherers) did not ALL go to the oligarchs. Lots went to common farmers. I believe in rep-by-pop one vote per citizen. I was never interested in regional (state) autonomy. The separate provinces of Canada include only one (Quebec) that differs from the common American mold - and those differences are exaggerated to preserve a Quebec governing elite. I've always been a moderate left liberal capitalist-socialist globalist.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

That's a mouthful. I wonder what that means?

All I know is that there are good and bad people.

I think you are one of the good ones although our views may be different sometimes.
