So you think you drew white? -- typical!|
Attack the President. So what? I think he is wrong, I know he is misguided. He gives me nothing of which I can defend. I wrote a eulogy to Ronald Reagan, it was unpopular, but it was picked up in the world press -- did you read it?
I wrote about Jimmy Carter, what I admired and what I thought were his failings. I trumpeted Robert Dole and his wife.
I trashed the Clintons.
All was warranted.
I defended the American people and the Westerners as well, in countless threads. I even took on the xenophobic bashing that had been going on for some time over in the FLR section of the forum. I had to spend countless untold energies fending off personal assaults from folks I took to task that had no better move than to become animal-like, and coarse, attempting to waste my energies with their childish games of insanity.
In fact, my original post to this forum was a defense of the American people.
I am interested in the whole truth, not in promoting an ideology that consists of bullying China around because someone thinks they know better.
Of all the American experts that have come over to chide China, not one of them has ever approached the real work -- which is to galvanize the infrastructure against corruption and abuse. Simply because the American experts have no idea how to approach the problem, they totally lack an understanding of the Chinese mindset and culture and how this frontier transition from an agrarian society to a market economy has become such a monstrous burden in a population of this size.
What the Americans can bring is our genuine hearts -- the fact that we have emerged as a people who operate from the basis of a Rule of Law that has evolved from our own lawless days of a wild west culture to a more complex system like that of England and Europe, which are now so bogged down in regulations and rules that they can hardly move -- China can see that we are taking on the same kind of inefficiency, so that they might try and emulate our best efforts and guide themselves clear of the lack of flexibility that we are quickly taking on ourselves.
Queen pawn openings are very strong, I would have played the same, probably, if I was given white, back when I had the time to waste on games ... I have a USCF recorded win, playing black, against a fellow who is now some kind of a master and teaches the stuff for a living, I used something like the following: 1.d4 f5 2.c4 Nf6 3.g3 e6 4.Bg2 Be7 5.Nf3 O-O 6.O-O d5 7.Nc3 c6, do you know it? That win had boosted my rating above 1600. I have long since given up the game. Life is real!
