Can it be denied that the US is actively engaging China’s border nations in an attempt to contain and control China? It seems pretty clear to most observers that such was the case years ago – Kissinger commented on the idea of containment back in 2005 – but with the recent moves in Myanmar and […]
The downturn just hit my household. The main breadwinner int he house stands to lose her job come April. Her bosses are pretty unimaginative when it comes to downsizing, but how much can you expect from people really these days? I have a new slogan that can help answer that question: when you decide to […]
Obama dropped it during the debate and this story in the Rolling Stone lays it all out … pass it on. Update: Jesus. I know a lot of people have seen this. At first I laughed my ass off listening to the SNL version, then i became shocked and extremely uncomfortable in my belly when […]
I was in Hong Kong during the WTO Ministerial in 2005 — here is part one of a four part series I wrote while i was there — and in the end i believe “we” defeated the “Establishment” by breaking through the police lines and making it to the the Convention Center where the suits […]
Here is Eli and my main man Kaffe doin their thang on NPR. Peep it and pass it on. Its the real deal ya’ll!!!!
“… this election has never been about me. Its about you.” Read it and tell me Who’s the Man.
So the Games are over and the Western media is tapping into the fear the American nation has for China’s rise. Its all smoke and mirrors, people. America is in the doldrums because the media tells us we are; China is gonna take over the planet because the media tells us they are. The reality […]

In case you do some shady shit and get caught, holler at my brother, the lawyer Tim Matuszak, he’ll take care of you.
The visa situation in China is getting more and more frustrating for foreigners trying to do anything here. How to extend or wiggle one’s way into a longer stay burrows itself into every conversation at least once or twice these days. If you have a Z-Working visa and want to extend it, you must leave […]
I can’t read my blog right now, but that might end. It has been a common occurrence since I started this thing. Sometimes my proxy works, sometime it dont. So here is a bit of an update on the “they tearin down my house” saga: My neighbors and I had a powwow today and learned […]
“Young Fool, only now, at the end, do you understand …” Yesterday I arrived back home from Dujiangyan and there was a small crowd of my neighbors laughing and gathering near my yard. I walked up and saw that the Local Party Secretary and his tall, thin greasy crony were present. I heard them talking […]
