Well, if you are so heavily trained in "smelling out BS", I wonder and ponder the question. While detecting such olfactory senses I was wondering what type of shirt do you find yourself most comfortable wearing? On a lark I thought the following questions would be quite appropriate:

Uniform Option #1

A Crisp, starched Brown one with a Red.white/black Swastika banner on it. Dark tie, complete with eagle National Socialist Workers Party emblem on it. Of course the shirt could be a JC Penney "Stafford" style non-wrinkle one by option of course too. That's available by special order.

Or

Uniform Option #2

A Dark Battleship Grey straight-jacket with dark black buttons strung along the front similar to the ones a certain famous Communist Chinese leader wore during the 1940's through mid 1970s? Remember that?

It was a hot commodity then!

Dont you remember those romantic years like the Korean War and Vietnam War...or better yet..--The Cultural Revolution--! where several million people of varying 'intellectual stripes' *miraculously -disappeared-* for some reason that no one in Beijing can explain to this day!

Cultural symbols all over the vast mainland disappeared and were destroyed. But -WHO- cares..right?! It 'doesnt matter anymore' There is money to be made! They are only mortal humans and why should one be so troubled? They are replacable like cattle! The state's prominence and longevity matters far more! Hail Hail, Long live the State! Bow to the Supreme Chairman!

By the way, where are all those people who disappeared during the Cultural Revolution now? Where are they? Where did they go? Did they go to Mars or another universe? Do you know??

Everyone wonders where they went.

Wondering....

hahaha....it took you that long to respond to my "b.s" comment?? I thought the post before it pretty much was a response. Hmmm...I have to think about your comments awhile before answering..tired need some sleep.

I hope you have not forgotten that the Cultural Revolution was a activity that was participated by the "masses"... which by the way represented by the Chinese people. You seem to be a fervent believer in democracy..well, these people acted on their beliefs, what they thought was right..no one held a gun to their heads and told them to destroy cultural symbols, antiques whatever. The people did that because they wanted to..what can be more democratic than that?? What?, you think the government forced several million citizens to go and destroy a temple and silence intellectuals- I think not.

Oh yes my shirt...I guess you would criticize my capitalist apparel- DKNY. By the way..I am a firm believer in capitalism- but I hate imperialistic pigs...so I am wondering what animal would you be?
Besides..what is wrong with the Mao suit? at least it is not pretentious.....

I would hardly call the cultural revolution a example of willpower.....

More like a case of mob brainwashing....

It really was one of the sadder parts of human history.

The problem sounds similar to the problem the gangsters that run the PRC government have. To wit: They lie, they -actively- get involved in other countries "internal affairs" (Presidential elections) and then have the -nerve- to scream "violation of internal affairs" when we want to keep our eyes on them or when they threaten Taiwan and we dare say something about it

Has America never gotten involved in the election process in country's in the past?

Have Americans not bitched when another country has gotten involved in that process? (ala China)

they are spoiled rotten in that everyone wants to build a factory in their country to take advantage of their cheap-skate labor rates (How does 20 cents a -day sound to you eh?..could you live off of that?

Surprisingly, a lot of Chinese do live off the low wages that they earn, due to the lower costs of living in China.

they have been allowed to bully people inside their own country even if they sign UN agreements on human rights

Hmmm...reminds me of America in the 60s, no?

they steal nuclear technology from other countries

And America has never stolen classified material from the Russians, Chinese or other country's?

they sell weapons of mass-destruction to rogue states

Well, personally, I don't see that Iran is a rogue state (America and Israel are the only country's which have no relations at all with Iran). I no longer see North Korea in that light, and neither does the Australian government, one of America's closest allies, otherwise they would not have re-opened diplomatic relations with Pyongyang. A "rogue" state is all relative as to where your "ideology" and "loyalties" lie.

and overall show the signs of being a totally undisciplined bunch of thugs

Hmmm.....sounds like a lot of country's that I know of.

I just wish that before people blow their own horn, that they look at things all ways.

No man, you don't need to enlighten me at all. I wasn't even jealous of you becoming a pilot. If I wasn't as poor as I am and also if Afghanistan didn't faced all this trouble, who knows, maybe I would get a shot at aviation. But anyhow, how about if we bury our rages towards eachother and instead respect eachother? Smile
