At the risk of being obnoxious, can you <a href="http://kbxqhagx.com">plesae</a> provide evidence of the myriad changes you reference? Oh, and I wasn't disagreeing with you on the sources; I think we're both in agreement on that issue.>>I guess what you mean is that it has failed to address its past to the satisfaction of those who would like to see it gone.No, that is not what I mean. Frankly, nor have I advocated that the Party should be gone. What I have stated is that there should be a true review of the history of the Party's decisions and actions and that it should summarily be held to account for them this has not happened. Any reasonably detailed accounts of the Cultural Revolution (the great majority negative) are banned in China and only available outside of the country. There has been no review of the events from the spring of 1989 in China. No review of the Great Leap Forward. No review of Mao's actions or his being held to account for his role in any of the disasters actions he spawned (his role in the Cultural Revolution was blamed on the Gang of Four to a large degree and the rest hidden). I did reference that there were many economic changes and should have been more clear that those were put forth as a way to get past the excessive destruction of the Cultural Revolution and to help bring China into the modern era to Deng's credit. But that does not indicate that China has been reflective or navel gazing merely that it is trying to rebuild itself. If it were reflective, I wonder if it would stop to compare itself to 1930 s Japan?And finally, I want to be very clear. I am not nor have I indicated a preference for the removal of the Party though I do think it should share power. I have pointed out that the nation (or Party, if you wish) must look at its past in a dispassionate light and recognize the mistakes that it has made and build from there. Unless and until it does, there is little hope that we will see the civil society that everyone hopes for.

life's just a series of "should I or soulhd I not", isn't it? As you say, it's a good thing to keep in mind that nothing is written in stone on this planet, but on the other hand one soulhd not dwell too much on such thoughts. For me too it is a constant battle of the mind, but I guess that's how it has to be. Be sad and thoughtful when you feel like it, but also enjoy life whenever there's a chance. And I think a person only dies when nobody remembers him or her anymore... and that's quite an encouraging thought. Leave a good impression - like your friend did - and you might be remembered forever.Oh, and btw.: I thought your article is very well written! http://prsjbovt.com [url=http://cjmboerrr.com]cjmboerrr[/url] [link=http://zztmwn.com]zztmwn[/link]

Skins went in the graveyard at 3-6, at a time when even Mike Shanahan<a href="http://hmeznkac.com"> baicsally</a> said the rest of the season was all about evaluation. At the time the Eagles were 3-5. When the Eagles went to 3-6 it coincided with the Giants dropping a couple games, and looking really bad in doing so. And so, I held off a week. It was more about timing than anything, and made perfectly logical sense then way things progressed.And isn't it a little odd to say He predicted the Redskins will beat the Eagles, and then 3 sentences later, Eagles bias! Meanwhile, do you even read this site? I've been destroying the Eagles all season.If the Skins beat the Giants next week, we'll talk. Until then, I understand the optimism after a couple wins (albeit against two bad teams), but let's not get out of control.

Supplementary TLP standard quesiton: what does the author want to be true. Here's her bio from the site:Glynnis MacNicol is the editor of Business insider's media page The Wire. She was formerly the senior editor of Mediaite.com, the media news, opinion, and rankings site launched by former MSNBC anchor/GM Dan Abrams in July 2009. Prior to Mediaite, Glynnis was the editor of FishbowlNY, the mediabistro.com blog about New York media and was a regular contributor to Playboy.com during the 2008 Presidential election year. She began her media career as an associate editor at the Huffington Post media blog Eat the PressWith that in mind, the post would appear to fulfill the standard cliches about both liberals ( Murdoch is the anti-Christ! ) and bloggers (substantial omissions, gossipy tone, whining about paywalls). Tit for tat since the intent of the post is seemingly to validate the standard cliches about conservative media (slavish adoration of big business leaders).What I found more interesting is the omission changes the context of the excerpt from good office politics to blind loyalty. I suspect this is because people can identify with playing these games, and might even envy Thomson's subtle skill at it. For instance, there might be a lot of common ground with someone who . But common ground would be distinctly bad for ideological driven traffic, wouldn't it?
