Watch out Ford and Toyota (and all others who make cars for sale in
America and Europe)!
This NY Times article talks about how the Chinese car companies are
moving into North Western Asia (i.e., Russia) and Europe. It doesn't
mention the Chinese companies that are building assembly plants in
Mexico so they can get around NAFTA regulations.
Anybody remember the early Hyundais? I mean the Pony, of course.
Well the Red Chinese cars will be ten times worse, since Red China has no
concept of freedom and thus no real check or balance on quality. Can you
say "melamine in your pet food", boys and girls? I knew you could.
They will sell like crazy for one year, then sales will fall to nothing
once people see what pieces of shite Red Chinese cars are. Depend on it.
The Red Chinese cannot wipe their own asses without an instruction sheet
written by the West.
Communism was bad years ago, and it's bad now. It's just going to take a
few more decades for that truth to become un-ignorable for the Chinese
Hey, next time you see a Red Chinaman, try saying "Tienanmen" to him...
Had you read the article I cited, you would see that the Chinese are
learning from their mistakes.
They made a really unsafe the first time around. They won't do that the
Secondly, they are studying from the Koreans and Japanese. They are
Depend on it?
I don't think so. Do you know where a lot of our electronics are already
made? Who is our biggest trading partner?
And speaking of partners, the Chinese auto companies are working with
western auto companies. And Cherry is going to export cars to the US
real soon, selling them with Chrysler as Dodges.
In case you haven't heard, the Chinese economy is going capitalist real
This is capitalism driving them.
The intake manifold I just installed to replace Fords crappy replacement
for its original crappy manifold which blew up was made in China. Nice
piece of work. Car has never run better and for a change I don't have
to add water every day and carry JB Kwik Weld with me at all times.
Good for them. It's about time. If the "learning" is actually happening,
But, so long as the Red Chinese economy remains government-run, and
so long as the press is completely stifled, mistakes will remain
uncorrected until flushed out by the West. Can you say
"melamine in your pet food", boys and girls?
Can you say "SARS"? I knew you could.
One "unsafe" was plenty. Can you imagine the backlash had it been
an American company that had produced the one "unsafe"? Oh, wait,
it's already happened. Several times.
Looks like the Communists get a gimme the West does not.
Not really. Red Chinese Communist culture makes perfectly
intelligent people duller than dull. The good ones defect.
The remainder need to be kicked in the ass repeatedly and regularly
to produce stuff that's not shit, and stuff that's not late.
In order to meet American quality and delivery standards, you (as a
Westerner) need a to have a full-time rep in Shanghai -- or wherever
your factories are -- to regularly apply the whip to the Reds so they
won't stop working the moment nobody's watching them.
And so they won't paint an item blue that's supposed to be purple just
because blue was all the factory happened to have on hand at the time.
You (as a Westerner), do all the design. You do all the legwork and
It's funny how Hong Kong and Taiwan have the same ethnic mix,
yet a totally different approach to quality and innovation.
And who *manages* all that trade? Not the Red Chinese, that's for sure.
That's "Chery", not "Cherry".
So Chrysler is going to be selling shit under their own name, huh? I seem
to recall they did that once before, with Rootes Group cars. We're
going back a few decades here, and it appears Chrysler hasn't
learned a thing since then.
The evidence "continues to mount", huh?
If you mean "state capitalism", then yes. The Red Chinese state holds
all the cards within its sphere of influence.
If you mean ordinary individuals being left alone to pursue their
personal dreams, then not even remotely close.
Compare the United States in 1870 to Red China now.
No it's not. And it should nevere be forgotten that THIS
is the REAL Red China.
A perfect example is the reunification of East and West Germany.
The East Germans were used to the communist government....lazy, lousy
workers. It damned near brought Germany down.
The Communist way of life is what the Dim party in America wants us to
Talk radio? I remember seeing an article in '90 just after
the wall came down.
Free Germans built BMW's and Mercedes, while the downtrodden built the
Trabant, a two-stroke, oil burning
I don't think talk radio had much to do with it.
I would say it is more like taking advantage a dumbed down nation who was
sold out by traitors who negotiated these outrageous trade agreements and
then went to work directly for the Chinese or their law or lobbying firm
received large sums of money for their services.
We are suppling the Chinese with the money to build and aim
intercontinental missiles armed with Nuclear warheads at us. These huge
deficits we are gleefully accepting are going to be the final nail in our
own self destruction.
Our military is also assisting the Chinese to build up their military,
talk about suicidal madness.
There is no capitalism in China as the government controls everything and
no one dares go against the central government.
You and the rest of us can take this opportunity to show the government, and
that you think are the problem, how capitalism REALLY works. We Americans
can stop buying all imported materials and products that we do, except those
materials that we do not have or products that can produced by our own
corporations and workers.
That is what the Japanese practice. We can start by drilling for our own
gas and oil in Alaska and other states and our territorial waters and by
building lower cost safer nuclear power plants
You can say that if you like. But I don't agree. I think open trade is
good for both countries. However, the Chinese currency is undervalued,
leading to a trade imbalance.
Write to President Bush. He has shown himself to be a smart man who
listens to good ideas.
I don't see the Chinese attacking us.
I disagree. There is more and more capitalism them. The country is
becoming more capitalist by the day.
I suspect we will still be in disagreement about this.
One of those deals where one doesn't know whether to laugh, cry, or yell
"Arghhhh!" Cringe w/embarrassment, that's for sure.
(I'd seen the laughing baby video on its own before, but not interspersed w/
GWB's words of wisd... errr... with his Shrub-ite words & phrases.)
The reality is that Chinese people work harder than people in the US.
OR longer when they make iPods:
My experience in working with people from China is that they do work
