You mean yourself?
Since when have you been "trusting" .... going by the back doors, side doors to push your political agenda?


I have been quite up front about my "political agenda" which, of course, is in the interests of the people of China.

How do you know that he is telling the truth?  Did you verify the facts before you said with such sureness?
I do have my doubts about all Americans and Aussies as a sign of precaution. ....  Just hope that he isn't soliciting for sex.  Paedophiles are aplenty in your white-men society.  ....
How can we let our guard down against people like him and like you?


Well, I reckon a professed 60 year old American interested in talking about life, medicine and education is not what would appear to be of interest in chatting up children.

One would think that someone claiming to be a 17 year old wanting to talk about clothes and music would be the type of thing that kids would be more interested in.

As for paedophiles, well yes there are a few which have turned up in Australia, America, Europe and so on.
I am sure China is not immune from this sick behaviour.

This is what youv'e said too about Timor. What are they today? a crippled colony of white Aussie.

But of course it won't be easy for you to do it to us.

Hello Again

huylee, shacwells, allenmiao, seneca, immouse, and emucentral THANKS FOR THE WELCOME!

I have one agenda here, a desire to learn about a country that is going through an unbelievable transition.  I hope it goes
well.  I wish to have personal relationships of discussion, sharing, learning and venturing that people are of one.  I had the
opportunity to travel to Africa, most of the Middle East, Europe  and even Southeast Asia during my military days.  I presently own part of a company that no longer requires my daily participation, so some may say I am done (retired).  I sometimes wish that was true, but I've still exhibited "wanna do" tendencies, which occassionaly gets me into trouble.

I wish to hear from anyone, male or female willing to educate me about China, and the daily trials and tribulations.  I am also posting my e-mail address for future referance.

I live in Arizona, along the Colorado River.  Across the river are nine casinos which I frequent on occassion.  The
temperature here during the summer can get as high as 120 degrees F. Sorry for F, I don't know Celsius.  During the winter it gets down to 30 degrees.  The population here consists of mostly people my age or older.  We see many tourists from
Southern California.  One week a year we have what is called River Run.  At least 65,000 motorcycles will just cruise
between Nevada and Arizona.  You can hear the bikes 5 miles away.

That's a little about me.  I am political, but I always been told by my father, do not talk politics or religion to strangers, and
only talk to friends you no longer want.

I'm looking forward to some communication from you all, and thanks again for the welcome

I think you might have served in Viet.nam right. How was it Rich?

In here this forum we can express freely feelings if we are civilian

If you have time so come visit us, you are always welcome here, we are now taught that westerners are our friend not en.ermy like before

You are an ex-mi.litary, you might have been taught to be against com.mu.nism completely But things changed. If you have ever been in chinatown pro.test by taiwan.ese ... Please dont believe them. Come here visit us and believe in what you see. . Now here we run, own businesses, live in big houses and luxury lives if we can afford not like couple decades ago.

Rich, who are you voting for this presidential election? I personally like Ob.ama better. At least he will end the War in Iraq. Man, prices are hurting people now. Almost $4 for a gallon in US. We pay nearly double before the US invaded I.raq. This is a U.S problem but the rest ppl of the world have been affected. It's not fair

Yes.  I did my time (2 yrs) in the military, 1 year in Viet Nam.  I don't know how some people
view service in their military, but in 1968 we had the draft.  I did not volunteer, but once in, I
felt I should do the best I could.  I don't believe that anybody really likes war, but feels it
necessary depending on the political perspective.  How do you think the people of Iraq feel
not having Sadaam in power?  At 60 years old, I tend to look at life differently now, that's
why I'm in this chat.  I truly love humanity, and cry for those with less comforts.  I did find
the happiest people in the world when I was in Africa.  They had no more than a dirt floor
and a thatched roof, yet they helped each other.  They would take the one hour for lunch, but spend 40 minutes dancing and singing.  They showed me how to be happy.  I'm glad that the Chinese life style is making more people comfortable, but sucess is a two edged sword.
You can only yearn for something that you once had.

I am thinking of traveling to China, and if possible, staying for 6 months or so.  I would like to feel the country and the people, not just look.

Thank you for speaking with me.  I look forward to it.

Your Friend
Rich

Rich,
hope I understand yr words correctly!
right, history has gone and be past already, we should be of ourself on forward way, right?
the importance is now and in future, as u said, those African resident always enjoyed themselves and showed happiness to others even though they had no luxury life! I think they were on their own way, that's enough, nothing else!
as for Chinese, we have own culture background and life style for sure compared with other country people, this just reflect to various culture all over the world, right? maybe this attract u to travel to China, I think,
quite frankly speaking, I really appreciate yr experiences travel to so many country...maybe those experience led to yr current attitude of life, being eager to experience different national culture and knowing how to cherish these days...
so just come to China and stay here for yr life, u can find warmed Chinese, beautiful scenery, attractive city and historic site etc...also u will make intimate friends also...

Chinese always welcome pure-hearted friends from all over the world...just like as u I think and hope so...:handshake:)
