Looks like there are 2 of these crazy posts.

so I am copying and pasting my reply from here

While I am happy for this elderly Chinese couple who have managed to stay in their home, I think we have a few things to continue to celebrate here in this land of from sea to shining sea:

since 49-78 million of our fellow countrymen have not been murdered in our own land by any of our leaders in the last century as done by Mao in China: http://www.scaruffi.com/politics/dictat.html

since currently in the US, women who have more than one child are not forcibly violated so their unborn can be evicted by murder as done in China: http://articles.latimes.com/2012/jun/15/world/la-fg-china-ab... this number is not included in the 49-78 million deaths listed above.

since currently in the US, Christians worship freely without government torture or persecution as done in China: http://www.persecution.net/china.htm

Additionally, before we begin to espouse the wonderful civil liberties in China, perhaps it would be a good idea to view a list of a few more topics regarding human rights in China: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_rights_in_the_People%27s...

I have even heard of people wanting to jump to their deaths because of labor situations: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/xbox-factory-workers-th...

and

How many 15 year olds are forced to labor in China? http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-china-child-labor-2012...
so that we in these free United States can enjoy our video games?
I question the intent of this article...yes we have imminent domain problems here; yes, we are seeing an attack on civil liberties, but thank God we have not had to suffer as the people of China have
...

chinese legal system

Is an abomination. Pre-determined verdicts buy Judges.

You mean..

People can own property in China?

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

??????

For every case like this there are many, many, many, more against.

This is an insult to that elderly couple, they could of easily bent the road around it.

This is a cruel joke imo.

Scroll down.

There's more. It is not a unique situation apparently.

This is what I'm hearing from my asian friends...

They're saying there are less laws. regulations and policing in a communist country than in the USA. We are quick to down places like China for atrocities, when it's nothing we, as the US, have not committed ourselves (reference the American Indians). They are a good people in many ways and while they're building their middle class, our country is busy tearing ours down. Makes one wonder.
