    Good to see mainlanders desperately come to HK to exercise their freedom of expression by... watching 3D porn

    Well, what you expect after being locked up in brutal gulags.

    Do you seriously doubt that that is true?

    Somehow, I doubt if any political prisoners were able to attend.

    Nope. Anyone in China at the time witnessed a whole new level of mass delusion and ignorance. Nobody in California was even remotely concerned. As was previously discussed, the real issue in the PRC is that they know they aren't getting the whole story from the thugs in power, so lacking information, they start to make news (and bizarre radiation remedies) up.

    At least the people I know within the PRC realize they aren't getting the whole story so they ask their friends outside for update.

    You brought up the whole salt shit, buddy.

    But to answer your question, yes the population here has been drastically dumbed-down, that being in the interest of the gummint here, which basically functions as a PR operation on behalf of the dear leaders in Beijing. We are not as free here as you might think - you'd know this if you read the SCMP and/or The Standard (my experience, reading The Standard).

    Give them 6k today, which will disappear like a fart in the wind, but they'll love you to bits and won't even think about another gummint which may not hand out free money the way these heroes are doing right now. Might not be true, don't take my word for it, but have a think about it.

    Duhhh.... so you saying what?

    1) People here in HK are too immature for elections?
    2) That manifestos in all democracies should not provide any inducements or incentives for people to vote for them, such as big corporations, gun lobbyists, pro arbortionists?
    3) That you are totally stupid?
    4) All three?

    In fact how do Governments worldwide gets people to support them? Think please... seriously...

    You can Freetrader can host your own show "Dumber and Dumber". So what you are basically saying is that since you disagree with the editorials in some newspaper, then you are suppressed and your freedoms violated?

    Perhaps you can try the Young SCMP on Sundays. they have plenty of pictures and a section on finding 6 differences. It will entertain you for the whole week.
