What in the world is China up to?  Over the past several years, the Chinese government and large Chinese corporations (which are often at least partially owned by the government) have been systematically buying up businesses, homes, farmland, real estate, infrastructure and natural resources all over America.  In some cases, China appears to be attempting to purchase entire communities in one fell swoop.

If you read the Chinese characters on the walls of their restaurants, they say, 'On the signal, knife the white people.' The article forgot to mention this.

so let me get this straight.

to do business with white people, Asians would need to slave away all day in sweatshops, produce the stuffs white people need, in exchange for a bunch of worthless fiat money. yet the Asians have no right to cash in this money. they can only keep it in under their mattress watching it getting devalued to oblivion?

you greedy honkies need another black plague. fuck you all!

lol yessss, let the hate flow. Did a white kid pick on you in middle school or something? "Fuck whitey" seems to be a common theme in your posts.

OK, finished reading the article, mostly. Talk about a long list of "facts" on a website that seems to lean into crackpot territory.

I am not sure why people are alarmed that the Chinese are buying up the world. The US gave them $trillions of the world's reserve currency, and it is stupid to think that all that money is going to remain there. Everyone there knows that it is a crooked industrial hell hole and anyone with real money and half a brain is going to find ways to get themselves out of there and have new wealth-generating ventures elsewhere. It's economic imperialism. The West imperialized with military force for centuries, and it looks like the East may be starting their turn. If people here think that the Republicans are scary in terms of their position on labor rights, they have obviously not traveled to the places on earth where their iPhones and other gadgets come from. Even if Americans actually knew where their money was going, I am not convinced that they would do anything differently though...I think that most of them just want their inexpensive electronic pacifiers more than they actually care to understand what "selling your national security" means.

One thing that I have said on here before is that we HAVE to allow Chinese nationals to buy whatever they want here with the fiat currency we give them for various physical goods. Why? Because the giant ponzi scheme that is the US Dollar can only hold up if people that we give dollars to in exchange for real goods actually believe that the US Dollar can buy them real things. If we suddenly said, "here's a bunch of US Dollars that you can do anything you like with, except buy hard assets in the US" then I think that there would be an immediate world-wide confidence crisis in the Dollar. Way to paint yourself into a corner, America.

Asia's ideal beauty: Looking Caucasian

I'd heard of this during my trips to the far east, I think it's called the Central Asian model, the non-hairy version of the Persian-Slavic blend but with the east Asian hair. Some Eurasians in Singapore and Thailand have this look and are highly sought after, by modelling agencies.

I agree that the look is beautiful, but I may be biased. My wife is Eurasian, half Thai, and she's gorgeous.

Well, that's if one inherits the best phenotypes from each parent as oppose to the worst.

The Benihana restauranteur's daughter wasn't as lucky.

Well, since we're on the topic of hotties, remember Lexa Doig of 'Andromeda' and now, the 'Continuum' series ...

That's what I mean about that hairless Slavic-Persian-east Asian look, which modelling agencies in Singapore and Thailand actively recruit.

hairless

Meaning odious body hair, not balding without eyebrows.

Finally, I was beginning to think that everyone here was in a coma.

And for Quigley, your actress look-a-like wife looks lovely. One of my best friend is married to a Cambodian woman who looks similar.

Well how come the Korean Airline ad featured Asian Asians?

The Customers in the ad, are all European though.

Singapore Airline has some cool cabin crews, a mix assortment of Asians, I think I flew with this one.

They bumped me to first class because, because it was empty and I had my Martin D28 with me. They were dissapointed that I didn't know any James Taylor though.

You're talking about actual workers, in actual service industries. When caucasians and Eurasians are a minority in most east Asian countries, I believe in that ~5% or less category, it's not like they'll all be hostesses for airlines or waitresses at a Hooters.

Here's Marsha Wattanapanich, Thai/German model and singer in Thailand...

I've had it both ways, one flight had cuties, the other one, not so many.

I guess I want more of a Dragon Lady out of Asian women.
I surely don't have to leave my town to find a round eye, that can't cook, don't clean, and sets her clock to be in sync with the A&E "Girls next door" broadcast schedule.

In all honesty, I'm expecting neither a Lexa nor a Marsha to be girlfriend material, just high maint models/actresses. Thus, it's better for them to be on the big screen than in one's social circle.

Yes, and that's a part of the point. Had Lexa grown up in Singapore, instead of Canada, she'd be on the A-list for Singaporean TV dramas and films. And that's because she's got the facial features, which are highly sought after in those east Asian media markets.

By having grown up around here, she's in competition against all the attractive Latin/Persian/Slavic/Asian and other phenotypically overlapping ethnic American/Canadian women, looking for work in Hollywood and thus, Lexa's relegated to the B-list, making SciFi TV shows for STEM worker viewers, instead of the roles, normally filled by the likes of a Sandra Bullock, Selma Hayek, or Cameron Diaz.

I find my self watching any Asian movie I haven't seen in the Netflix library over any American Blockbusters. And I like action flix as much as the next guy. I'm just getting to Captain American, the last transformer movie, the Avengers, I've seen them in the menu for well over a month. But I was interested in the Asian movies I haven't seen more. Something about their characters, story and cinema photography, they are what American movies used to be back in earlier decades, but with modern film making techniques at their disposal, which they use sparingly.

I caught a great one last night, "Attack the Gas station 2".
It was done in the style I guess "American Graffiti" first used, and other movies like "Air Heads" used. But the style was more like Spike Lees' "Do the right thing" or "Crooklyn" in the sense that under those useless vignettes of side stories, was a social commentary about the fall of society and moral decay in South Korean(as well as all over the world). Like a prison gang who hijacked their prisoner transport bus, stopped at the gas station. Where the attendant filled the bus with Gasoline instead of Diesel. The gang leader proposed the gang pushed the bus back to the gas station and punish them for their lack of attention to detail. Which he felt was the right thing to do, in spite of the rest of the gang urging they just continue making a run for it.

The story also showcased the growing frustration of people being gouged by world manipulation of gas prices. As one scene where the Gas station owner, defends him self about the price of gas prices, by the energy speculators in the west.

Just lots of character depth and CGI is just an incidental to convey the story used sparingly, in Asian films.

I would give every Asian airline two thumbs up, compared to American(the country) airlines. (though I haven't flown any Chinese airlines)

Strange how far they've come in just a decade or two. I remember in the 90's Chinese we're labeled as the most dangerous airlines in the world. Their whole fleet were under in disrepair and in need of maintenance or replacing.
