  1. Chinese only believe in Han freedom. Which is to be slaves under their own ridiculous, greedy, bastardized communist, capitalistic, backstabbing, horror system. But oh yeah they are “traditional” and “harmonious” people, when it suits them.

  2. I would usually love stories like this. That starts out with something impossible and then tries to clarify it slowly. Pealing away layer by layer and it just keeps you guessing. Unfortunately in a movie thats about crazy people you can’t believe anything. All though the film you will be guessing what’s real and whats not. However even then you can still almost suppose the ending.

  3. It’s sad to know that more and more hackers are now on the net. I hope that we could so more international laws about the internet and cyberspace.

  4. Compassionate for the recitation, but I’m truly caressive the new Zune, and this, as comfortably as the excellent reviews few group screw statute, will exploit you adjudicate if it’s the proper choice for you.

  5. You moron monkeys that support this terrorist group are idiots as well.

    They are the same ones that are in Obama’s camp. Oops that s/b Obama, no that’s Osama.
