I completely agree with the author’s analysis.

要維護國家對香港特區的主權,要維護行政長官制,港人只可有一個欠缺政治包容性、競爭性和多黨參與的行政長官普選。但是,這樣的選舉會是民主的體現嗎?

What does Obama drive?

Posted in 未分類 with tags , on 五月 11, 2007 by chauonline

Sen. Obama criticized US automakers for not building fuel efficient vehicles. Yet, he drives a 340-HP 5.7L V-8 Hemi Chrysler 300C, which gets a combined city/highway 21 mpg.

Pollution in China

China from the inside

We watched a documentary called “China from the inside" on PBS. It is a 4-part documentary about power, women & minority, the environment and freedom in China. We watched 3 episodes, and the most depressing episode is “Shifting nature" about factories pumping toxic materials into the rivers that caused cancer and killed many people in the villages.

I hope you can watch the episode. If you are living in Bay Area, the episode is availble in Feb 7 & Feb 8 on KTEH. Check your local PBS listings.

Jim Webb, George Bush and the war on Iraq

I listened to the Forum on KQED this morning. Today’s guest is Bill Press, former chair of the California Democratic Party. It is a good show, and in particular, I’d like to share 2 things I heard with you.

  • Senator-elect Jim Webb attended a reception last week for new members of Congress at the White House. He is a Republican-turned-Democrat, and feverishly opposed to the Iraq War. He is a Vietnam veteran and his son is a Marine in Iraq. Bush, seeing Webb across the room, walked over to him and had the following conversation:

Bush: “How’s your boy?”

Webb: “I’d like to get them out of Iraq."

Bush: “That’s not what I asked you. How’s your boy?"

Webb: “That’s between me and my boy."

Some thinks Webb is disrespectful of president, while other thinks Webb doesn’t suck up to power. What do you think?
