...odds with the fire-and-brimstone preacher stereotype." In the magazine's May 22, 2004edition, staffers identified Land as "One of 113 Americans who will help the policymakers in Washington plot the country's course in 10 critical areas: intelligence reform; workforce quality; Social Security; China; same-sex "marriage"; global warming; drug pricing; weapons threat; church and state; and bioengineering." What I want to know is how Richard Land influenced President Bush's decision in regards to the RFID verichip legislation since his familarity with biblicalprophecy could help strike fear... (more)
Here are some of the things I learnt in China, from Translators who work as Translators translating Chinese into English.
You can see some of their published Public efforts on "Lost with Translation"Forum at ActiveEnglishSpeaking...AESDon't crack a joke. Its taken seriously and you end up with anhurt person who feels they have lost face because you laughed. eg 'Oh!!! You really are being silly...' is taken to mean, 'you are silly' Don't try to correct their English. Because they translated it, it has to be correct. Don't try and explain a joke. You get into more hot water... (more)
...she excludes discussing about her own backgrounds that are more distinctly memorable for being on vacation with Oscar de la Renta than for walking the extra mile to unionize the workers. Positioning herself as a potential world leader she talks of teaching lessons to people of Iran and China. Blatant lies, and exclusive privileges as an elitist characterize her during her several addresses where attacking her fellow Democrat Obama has been the single largest ideology she has to offer.
On the other hand, Barack Obama leads the race of the Democrats. Of course it will... (more)
... George McGovern and Jimmy Carter (the two most liberal presidential candidates we’ve ever had). But, during the Reagan era I began to realize that I had been an immature idealist all those years; that welfare simply left its victims without skills, goals, or self-worth; that the Communists of China and Vietnam would have enslaved an entire nation of people who desperately wanted democracy, and were willing to fight to the death for it.
I am reminded of what a world renowned statesman once said – “if a man at 20 is not a liberal he has no heart, but if that man at 40 is not a... (more)
...do something good with your money. Give it to me!
Here’s the thing. How are these measly little peanut papers going to help stimulate the economy? After all, if you spend it at Wal-Mart, most likely it will be on some piece of junk that was made in China for about $0.89 and shipped over here on a really big boat then sold to you for $29.94 (tax and batteries not included). Lee Scott (CEO of Wal-Mart) will get his cut, the wholesaler will get his cut and the rest of the money will have already gone back to China to keep the child-labor... (more)
...hip scene, but the Herald Square station is bonkers! I'd like to share with you some of the wonders I've personally experienced there recently:ABBA's greatest hits performed on a pan flute by a woman who looked eerily like Lo Pan from the cinematic classic Big Trouble in Little China.
First off, the pan flute is a hauntingly sweet instrument all by itself, but when it's playing the timeless classics of Sweeden's rockinest band the effect is nothing short of transcendent. I was so transfixed by the melodious tones of Dancing Queen that I stood there, listened... (more)
... the Braves are hoping that Tim Hudson can regain his old form, because their prospects for a decent fourth starter look dim. Mike Hampton, the guy who has made a career out of hauling in huge money while being injured, is slated for the spot, but he has proven to be more fragile than a porcelain China doll. Pitching prospect Jair Jurrjens has a live arm and could step in, as could either Jo-Jo Reyes and/or Chuck James. I like a lot about this team and with a few breaks they could make it to the postseason. But, it’s more likely that they’ll finish far behind the Mets and several... (more)
Easter Bunny, Meet Chocolate Jesus
I did not even know it was Easter. Someone online said they were going to Melbourne for the Easter break, and I asked if we were getting one too, and was told China does not celebrate Easter, so there was no holiday, so I lost Interest in Easter, as a holiday meant I could have traveled somewhere.
On Friday evening I joined another International Friend for Dinner at the Sofitel Buffet. Now this was a very expensive Buffet featuring barbecued meats... (more)
...search for that ultimate Aphrodisiac that gives that ultimate enhanced performance. Whether it is for the one evening, or with constant and regular use, improved and improving performance capabilities, the search for the miracle potion or notion continues.
The search has been greater in China, Korea, Japan and India, where the smaller physique, has led to the concept that personal attributes would also be smaller, so the necessity for stamina and enhanced performance is necessary for added enjoyment. Somehow man has always erroneously believed that the longer he can perform, the... (more)
...this country has ever seen.
Second, he wants to seal off the Mexican border. Seriously, this is the dumbest thing to spend money on since pet rocks. You’re never going to seal that border, and it’s stupid to even try… look what happened to the Great Wall of China… good idea? Okay, that’s a bad analogy, I know. But again, I’m tired of my keep-your-own-money Republicans spending what I give them on this kind of nonsense. How about subsidizing the mortgage industry or alternate fuels? Here’s what I don’t want: I... (more)
