Ehhh I'd probably move there and give it a shot if I could afford it. Looks to be a hell of an interesting place.
It's great. Expensive to live here, for sure. But worth every penny.

I moved here from Philly in '79, and in '81 my band hit the skids and I moved back to Philly. I was there for a total of three days before I came back to NY.

NYC is def not for everyone. I appreciate most of what it has to offer, some good gigs there over the years. I just could never live there. Prefer the mountains and the solitude, which is probably one of the FEW things NYC does NOT have to offer.

But come on: Lighting up the ESB to celebrate China?!?!

Such as? Maybe I'm not paying attention, but I haven't noticed any huge flurry of new laws being passed here. And I just looked out my window - no barbed wire or armed patrols on my block.



Okay, go ahead and take your shots. I promise not to respond in kind like a rude New Yorker.

But I will point out that you live in California, which seems to be in a lot worse shape than NY these days. :D

Oh, California is bad as far as a state...but I'm really happy I don't in a place like San Francisco which might be the only city in the United States with even more laws than NYC.

I love New York its the Rome of this age and the fact that they are honoring China makes me like it even more. I really do not care about things like this people are making a big deal out of nothing in my opinion.

People always tell me communism is not funny but I say "F#ck you I think its hilarious".

It seems to me that this is another step in improving our relations with China. I find it pretty telling that most Americans would apparently rather we just shot nukes at each other.

I don't think a lot of Americans like the idea of the USA being another country's bitch and what not. But, that's what we are now.

China's little bitch. This whole event just goes to prove that (along with the same sort of thing going down in Washington DC.)

Funny thing...we're a debtor nation now. And if you've ever been in debt personally (deep in debt), you know that at that point you can't do whatever you please with your life since the debt takes priority.

China's little Bitch indeed...

That sounds like a matter of psychology. What are the real world implications of being "China's bitch", as you say? Are we going to end up chained to the wall of some dungeon, fed stale bread, and whipped three times a day?

The fact that people whine to much in this country proves that it is filled with bitches, "Obama said socialism lets march" "I do not believe in public restrooms lets declare a strike on public restrooms and anything else that has the word public""Universal studios? More like communism studios" say what you want about America "land of the free home of the brave" we got some snotty nose whiny little bitches in here.

Even the Romans used to honor other civilizations just look at Julius Caesar one of the most powerful men in the world showed respect to Cleopatra by building a statue of her in Rome.

Something like that. Or, we'll see more military exercises and wars people won't understand.

We'll see more and more jobs go away. Higher priced stuff coming in here. It's a bleed process, mayn. Slow, steady...but eventually the US will be this empty husk.

Yes, the United States is filled with bitches as you say, right?

PS: Wasn't Caesar's boy Antony bangin' on Cleopatra?

EDIT: Anyways...

If you want to construe us as being anybody's bitch, it makes more sense to think of us as our government's bitch. And they're quite adept at military exercises and wars that most of us don't understand, without the aid of China.

Do you think, for instance, that there is more difference between civilians and the people in government or between American civilians and Chinese civilians?

Exactly and the fact that we have 300 million citizens and only about 1 million servicemen proves it, America is filled with whiny little bitches that only whine and cry. "Obama does not like ketchup on his ham burger which proves he is not a patriot, lets impeach him."

P.S Yeah Antony was banging Cleopatra and so was Caesar until Caesar was assassinated and Antony killed himself.

This one is valid as far as I'm concerned. When you have a city with as many cars in it as NYC, every little bit helps. You haven't lived until you're walking down the street and a moving truck site there burning diesel fuel in your general direction.

Your original argument was 'laws that were passed,' wasn't it? I'm not sure if this qualifies.

Isn't this a federal law? I could just as easily blame this on Idaho or Kentucky as New York, no?

Again - this isn't a law that's 'been passed,' is it?

Schenectady. That's hardly even New York as far as I'm concerned. :laugh2: And once again - they're considering martial law. No law has been passed.

True power in politics knows no borders and it's all fueled by the almighty dollar. The real war, I think, is between those who govern and those who are governed.

if it is humiliating to be ruled, how much more humiliating it is to choose one’s rulers?

The Golden Rule - He Who Has the Gold, Makes the Rules.

This is where the real war will take place in our society. Our government is controlled by big dollar interests and completely does their bidding. With the disparity in wealth as large as it is nothing is going to change until something drastic takes place.
