    Hiya Ol’ Broad! Hope yer feelin’ youngie!
    From PBS NewsHour 1-30-13

    RAY SUAREZ: How? How can the people change the future, when their lives are so thoroughly controlled?

    CHEN GUANGCHENG: Again, where there is an oppression, there’s a resistance.

    And the (Soviet Chinese) spend — they invest tons and tons of money and human resources to control. On myself alone, they have spent $70 million, $80 million and thousands of people. And what happened? I’m here. I’m sitting right here.

    Well, dictators are actually very fearful themselves. Even when they’re asleep, they’re afraid that others will take their powers away. And, in fact, their own powers are taken by force, by violence. They are not just afraid of me as an individual. They are afraid of a lot of the people. And the overall suppression on the average people having — has deterred — deteriorated.

    And so they are — there’s suppression on other minority groups. Yes, they spend — like I said, they spent a lot of money on me, and they spend a huge amount of money on so-called stability maintenance. Just imagine where — where does that money go?

    Younger? Mentally or physically? LOL

    Wouldn’t you think that people would learn? I mean we’ve been watching oppression around the world for decades, through our idjit boxes, and before than in the news reels, but yet, seeing the same thing going on right outside their own front doors, albeit a little slower, blind as bats!! Sheesh! What does it take??
