being offended does not matter in the Chinese mindset.
saving face, which is a little difficult to understand for us westerners matters.
but what matters most is making money.
New China started in 1949. Marxist in name only.
The Chinese mastered capitalism over 4000 years ago and they are very good at it.
true that, local government business, buses are all LNG now, as are taxis, subways are electric, and if you see
a motorcycle it has to be at least 7 years old if it is not electric.
Industry however has a long way to go.
figures you would follow David Stockman.
Smart guy who studied at the Harvard Divinity School.
So he did not fight in the Viet Nam War.
I have never eaten a pizza in a Chinese Pizza Hut.
but I remember going to Hog sales in the 1970"s when 6000 pigs a night would go through.
the boar buyers would pay 17 cents or so a pound.
one evening I was loading some feeders I bought and observed the boars getting loaded.
they would break the 1000 dinosaurs jaws with a lead pipe so they didn't gore each other in the truck.
I asked the trucker who bought the meat. He said cat food companies.
As boar meat smells so bad from the testosterone, people would not eat it.
By the 1990's Pizza hut and Tombstone had their own pork processing plants.
Tombstone buys the not so pretty cull sows, grinds the whole hog seasons the sausage and sells to many frozen pizza companies.
Pizza Hut buys the boars and precooks the bad smell out before they season and process the different kinds of sausage.
After the Humane society made their expose on the cruelty to the boars. American companies made a way to make money righting a wrong.
Myself, I prefer not to eat American Pork.
Only because of antibiotic use in factory farms.
For everyone else I think Pizza Hut meat is a better product than frozen pizza.
only because the appearance of the animals health when heading to the processing plant.
Since 2008 I have been wintering in China. No plans to eat at a Pizza Hut.
And there are lots of them there.
many on this board do not know Jack.
who is Jack Zhet?
Jack Zhet is the only son of Aww Zhet and Ohh Zhet.
They are the owners Kneedeep Inzhet. Dewey Screwen, and Howe Onlne Brokerages.
Jack zhet married No Zhit.
the couple had 6 children:
Holy Zhet, Giva Zhet, Fulla Zhet, Boul Zhet, and their twins Deep Zhet and Dip Zhet.
Deep Zhet married Dumb Zhet a college dropout,
a marriage soon annulled.
shortly after that No Zhet went into perimenopause and had an affair with the church minister Ted Sherlock.
Jack was a saver and ministers do not make a lot of money so Ted was happy to get half of Jacks savings
by romancing the rock.
After the divorce No married Sherlock and became No Zhet Serlock.
So the next time some adzole on this board says you don't know Jack Zhet,
feel free to enlighten them!.
2 gorgeous young ladies get on the elevator going to work one morning.
Xue Qin and Olga, a Asian and a Russian.
going up the elevator stops on the 2nd floor and a man gets in.
of course he smiles at the ladies and faces the door. white flakes on the shoulders of his navy blue suit coat. he gets off the elevator on the next floor.
Xue Qin comment to Olga, "that guy could use some Head and Shoulders"
lots of elevator giggles.
Then with a blank look on her pretty face, Olga asks "How do you give Shoulders."
for me that would be too greedy.
I will take cash now because I can
then wait and see
