“Why does Taiwan (or... the weird name of Chinese Taipei) not have GDP or population included? Pure laziness, or Huffpost too scared of China?”

“Why are Taiwan, Chinese Taipei, and Hong Kong included in the Olympics? They are each a part of China. We can't, but do have, the US Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa. Come on. What's fair is fair. As for the United sates being ahead in the overall medal count, there is an explanation. The 1904 Summer Olmpics in St. Louis were actually scheduled for Chicago. Then word got out to all participating nations that boycotted, and in several events, it was United Sates wins , gets second, and third places. Then there was a lot of cheating as well.”
“It's like Maher already gave Zimmerman a guilty verdict... the joke itself is funny, but unprofessional”

“Zimmerman admits the shooting. He fails to be truthful about how and why he used a gun he should not have been carrying while ignoring dispatcher's order(?) or was it an urgent request, to let the police handle the matter.
Zimmerman has shown himself to be a liar. It will be very hard for his attorneys to argue that he is basically an honest man caught in a trap of his own making and should be forgiven this one minor killing.
Is there anyone out there who is willing to argue that Zimmerman is an honest man who felt his life was jeopardized when he, well armed, confronted a kid whose posible crime was walking while black?”

“Just because an actor and an actress starred as a couple in the same movie or series, that they have to sleep together, like you don't expect Robert Downey Jr to sleep with Gwyneth Paltrow in the same bed every night
So don't expect Scott and Kourtney to sleep in the same bed”
“7th Slide: #SignThatHeIsCheating: the BEST sign of all. If your intuition is telling you that he is cheating, HE IS CHEATING!
Sorry Huffpost and ladies, you're intuition is the most unintelligent and least accurate stuff. Simple minded and evidence lacking sense of intuition not only makes a fool of yourself, but brings unnecessary pain and suffering on good men and husbands. Intuition is not a sign that he is cheating, it's a sign that your mind process like a neanderthal”

“9 times out of 10 if you suspect your mate is cheating, they probably are. Denial is what forces people to ignore their intuition.”

“My first husband actually told me he was cheating and described what was so sexy to him about the other woman in total complete detail....he was shocked when I left him, ran home to his momma.”
“Well... they basically grew up here, and now you're throwing them "back" to their home country, which they are not familiar of? jeez tell that to your friends who have irish or italian names, maybe you should also tie up their grandpas and toss them back to europe!
Undocumented workers cannot get ordinary jobs, which means, they'll likely be involved in unlawful conducts to make a living... repeating the godfather (jewish irish and italian) all over again, is that what you like to see? do not bring mexico's problem to the united states, please!”
“Here is some information that Americans do not know
United States had been trying to export American beef to Pacific Asia, but was found to contain high level of beta adrenergic agonist, roughly 3~4% higher than the beef that was sold domestically in the states. Most countries banned it at first, sooner or later both Japan and Korea gave up the fight in exchange for FTA (free trade association). Taiwan, and China, are the last to entities that has not yet give in to U.S.'s demand. Especially earlier this year in March, where Taiwan Congress "delayed" the import of American beef "indefinitely"
Now here's the interesting part, after that, Taiwanese companies were basically "purged" by the U.S. media. First is Foxconn, accused of hiring child labor (ended up to be a made up story by NBC), then was Quanta, accused of abusing labors in China (which also ended up to be flaky after Apple's own investigation proved the exact opposite). HTC was also bomb shelled in the American courts for the past 2 months, which the decision in the Florida Federal Court was regarded as some what astounding in Asian Pacific media.
Of course, not saying Asus made the right move on twitter, but why not purge Toshiba, Samsung, HP, and Lenovo for the same stuff? Asus is not the only company using fancy models to sell computers at tech fes
Those "media" moves made by the U.S., is getting ridiculous....”

“Oh, really? Going to the most prestigeous private school in HI is "ordinary?" Having a grandma who's a bank VP is "ordinary?" I grew up in the same state, at about the same time as B0 and, I can assure you, his childhood was not "ordinary."”
“Maybe China and South Korea will ask for 30% tax as well for those wealthy Asian businessmen who immigrated to the United States....
Such a !@#$% proposal by the 2 senators, publicity stunt i suspect
Rather than complaining about Saverin and blame everything on other ppl, isnt it time for the government to start thinking "what did i do wrong, how can i make better policies to keep the rich people and their wealth in the country? Is Singapore's policy the way to go? etc"”
“As long as Mitty doesn't favor one particular religion over another (like Bush Jr. did) with the government's money, he can do whatever he wants with his own money, period... why would anyone want to restrict a Mormon donating money to his own church? or a Jewish giving money to synagogue, Muslim to Mosque, Buddhist to Temple? If Maher doesn't like the tax deductible policy, that's the Congress's problem, not Mitty's. Maher made an incredibly weak argument here.”

“I see you did not understand his argument. Reply the clip again and this time put a little effort into your thinking about what he is saying.”
“To be fair, Taiwan and most other Asia Pacific countries treat LGBT way better than ppl in the southern states... the main 'discrimination' towards LGBT in Taiwan is mainly economic reasons (most gays work in service industry, such as hair salon or as waiter, while parents expect their kids to work in the office), or reproduction concern (not being able to have grand children)... not saying bullying does not exist, but it's more like Russell Peters' joke, "wow my son is gay, i better find him a rich gay boy"... in no way ppl in Taiwan will ever think gays are going to hell”

“Taiwan is not a culture steeped in Christianity, either...as Korea, where Christians here do believe the words of God in His Word.”

“The family + millions of others of the inventor of the GS cookies also wants the public to cease buying them--not because of the PP issue--but because of the palm oil used in them which is harvested by child laborers ... forced child labor & child slave lavor is helping Americans enjoy unnecessary cookies.
