What world do you live in, princess?



Ask eyeofstorm that.

*****

American PRESIDENT exploiting an underaged INTERN sexually.

He is writing books and still making his rounds to make speeches.

That's the kind ROTTEN FREE society you have.


To protect NOT those vulnerable but those in POWER.

Perhaps, it doesn't matter a s-h-i-t  to you yankies that Lebanon (also Iraqi) children and women are bombed and killed so long as the doer is your prodigal son, Israel.

And you go round giving the BS about Human Rights, whose rights exactly?

Be clear.

I don't see you denying that you're living in the West yourself, whampoa... so who exactly are you speaking for when you insult Westerners and praise the Chinese? Do you think you actually have very much in common with the Chinese? From what I can tell, you seem to be living a fairly comfortable life here in the West...

Once again, Mr Mikeghet, since you cited my quote on the American president and the intern .... who is only, how old then?

I hope you are not taking this lightly or as any normal Adultery, are you?

He should have been impeached but he wasn't.  Why?



Hey, I wanted him out of office long before his affair, so do't worry about which side I was taking.   :)

And this should answer your question:
"resident Bill Clinton was impeached as President of the United States on December 19, 1998 by the House of Representatives and subsequently acquitted by the Senate on February 12, 1999. The charges were perjury and obstruction of justice, arising from the Lewinsky scandal. After a 21-day trial, the Senate vote fell short of the two-thirds majority required for conviction and removal from office under the Constitution. The impeachment proceedings were largely party-line, with no Democratic Senators voting for conviction"

Slick Willie is still making money for public appearances.  I guess the affair was a publicity stunt....

Yes, you defended his ADULTERY as any normal adultery (the right of men in power to abuse those willing), so WHY would you want him out of the office?

Can’t you guys agree on ONE leader to lead your nation?  No, of course not, you can’t because NONE of your presidents can be trusted or are good enough.  So, you like Bush who LIED about the WMD to kill children and the innocent civilians in Iraq and Lebanon, oust Saddam to take control of their OIL fields?

Why wasn’t Bush impeached for LYING to his country?

Because there were no young girls involved?  Or lucky he was, there was America's most feared enemy … Osama BL.

******

Yes, Bill Clinton was impeached only by a close margin for perjury (lying under oath) and OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE but NOT abuse of power.

I also found out that Monica Lewinsky is not underaged girl but a girl, 22 years of age [an adult and possible an OPPORTUNIST for a career leapfrog to positions of power and importance].


Theirs make a story not only of the DIRTY politics of America  but also the sordid politics and power ambition in a corporate world in the West.  It is like what Tongluren said in post #15 –

In The West

In the West, the quickest way for the employee to move up would be to sleep with the boss.

Better yet, sleep with the boss and then sue the boss and the company for millions  for sexual harassment.   Quick settlement, early retirement.  


FACTS and TRUTHS.


Paula Jones was the other women but she was less lucky as she, not only older and uglier but, didn't have a stained frock to prove.

Staying on topic, my post #11 -

when do you think is proper time to say sth about  your eager to get to know your boss ?
i really want to extend my feeling about  knowing him better,
but i have no idea about when and what occasion
i have no sense of his characteristics and habits.
can i ask him in the office.
if not ,when


Don't worry about your boss, just be natural.

Don't worry about the language barrier, your foreign boss should understand or he'll just be an IDIOT.

If "language" is not your strength, try to keep your speech and words simple.  Don't use high-flown words which, if inappropriately used for the occasion, may cause misunderstanding.

Don't be or appear to be "too eager" to know your boss for you may attract jealousy from your colleagues (last thing a good boss would want happen in his department/organisation) or give him the wrong impression that you are bootlicking him.  He will look down on you.

Proof yourself in the performance of your work.  Be creative and receptive to ideas if they make sense.  Bosses like to think they are smart but they also like smart employees.

Be sure of the scope of your work, not so that you would be calculating but so that you will not end up a slave labour in your company.  I understand that some bosses like to exploit their staff.  It's a bit of a grey area but it is good to know your areas of responsibility and understand the line of authority.  

My advice: be natural.  Bear in mind the above.  If unclear instruction is given to you, approach your boss to ask for clarification.

learn to your boss' country culture and habit ,regarding to the english,it is easy to learn if you try your best.


That's a one good way to patch a cultural difference but I also take a different stance.

Your boss should learn the Chinese culture .... if you are referring to working in China.

If your boss, working in China, cannot adapt to the ways in the China and her people, then I think the company has sent the wrong guy to manage the company.  

He/She should be shipped back immediately home to handle domestic chores.

Things should work both ways.  The worker (China) understanding the work and expectations of performance and boss (foreigner) should have a flexible mindset and be able to adjust to the culture in the new country and its people.

As a worker myself, I do have expectations of my bosses too.  I am not a slave, that is to say.
