‘Silent’ Restaurant Provides Livelihood to the Deaf, Mute! (28.9.2022)

When asked why she insisted on only providing jobs to the deaf-mute for 12 years, Li said she had witnessed the difficulties they experience as a child, with six of her family members both deaf and mute, and facing limited job opportunities, etc.

I chose to open a hot pot restaurant and make it easier for the disabled to prepare and serve dishes, with gas stoves replaced with induction equivalents, which are safer for deaf employees to use, Li said.

Xinxiang City is home to more than six million residents, of which more than 40,000 are deaf and mute, and with only one school for them to attend.

Li’s parents used to study at this school, meaning the employees in the hot pot restaurant are mainly their classmates. Now deaf people who are applying for work often take the initiative to ask Li for a job.

I hope that the deaf and mute can work and live normal lives, using their strength to earn a reasonable living, Li said.

Some Facts About Pelosi’s Visit to the Chinese Region of Taiwan! (25.8.2022)

American democracy has deviated from the essence of democracy. The American-style democracy is a game of money played by the rich. Ninety-one percent of U.S. Congressional elections are won by better-financed candidates. “One person one vote” in name, “rule of the minority elite” in fact. Ordinary voters are wooed when their votes are wanted but pushed aside once the election is over. The checks and balances have resulted in a “vetocracy”, putting partisan interests before the need of national development. The U.S. electoral system is visibly flawed. The practice of gerrymandering, which draws the boundaries of electoral districts by manipulation, undermines fairness and justice. American democracy is fraught with deep-seated problems. Problems like money politics, identity politics, partisan wrangling, political polarization, social division, racial tension and wealth gap have become more acute. The Capitol riot shocked the world. The death of George Floyd triggered waves of protests. The mishandling of COVID-19 resulted in a human tragedy. The problem of “the rich get richer, and the poor poorer” is worsening. The dysfunction and failure of American-style democracy have become an unmistakable fact.

Down House: Sat in Charles Darwin’s Shelter! (9.7.2022)

It is said that Charles Darwin would walk around the ‘Sand-Track’ that ran around the exterior boundary of his property on a daily basis – to keep fit! Approximately half-way through – Charles Darwin had a wooden shelter (with a seat) constructed – where he would sit and think for awhile – before starting the journey home! As the years progress – we take family pictures sat on this seat!

Emails: Reality in a Flower – Eternity in an Hour! (30.5.2022)

The Soviet System (like China) works to interface Socialist (Marxist-Leninist) ideology with religious understanding. When the Boxer Muhammed Ali visited the USSR in 1978 he said that religious freedom was protected and thriving! He said he roamed freely and visited Churches, Mosques, Temples and Synagogues – the Holy places the West said did not exist! I am a Commissar for Interfacing Religious Belief with Socialism (CPC) – which means that in a future World Wars against fascism I must carry the Red Flag and advance into combat leading Regiments of religiously-minded volunteers! My function being explaining the reasons and lifting the load through proper Marxist-Leninist education that is relevant to the individuals concerned! Anyway, my Comrades jokingly state that as I will be at leading from the front – I will not be fulfilling this role for very long!
