sunday morning eye candy …. miss world

ANASTASIA LIN ..... Miss World 2015.

That isn’t what sets her apart as a reason for the post this cold and VERY windy morning.

I don’t follow this stuff but sometimes when something suddenly shows up under your nose, okay your eyes too, it’s a bit hard to ignore.

She’d be my eye candy choice even if she were not Miss World.  That holds no special place in my thinking.  Too often I have seen, or believe I have seen, better looking women and older too, on our high streets here. ( That last is no slight to Miss Lin who I wasn’t thinking of when writing that last comment) I do confess however to being somewhat partial to Asians and redheads.  Extremes. Yeah I know. It figures, right?

So anyway, I thought the idea that the govt. of China, lined up against one pretty girl because she was critical of their govt., seemed the wrong thing to do.  But I guess words sometimes can mean more than bullets and the powers that be over there, won’t tolerate anyone trying to upset their apple cart. And her daddy who still lives there, did warn her not to get into things political, because the authorities read the mail and texts and were aware of everything.

Miss World Canada prevented from reaching China pageant

HONG KONG | By Tyrone Siu

Canada’s China-born Miss World contestant was stopped in Hong Kong on Thursday and denied permission to board a flight to the beauty pageant finals in China, a move she said was punishment for speaking out against human rights abuses in the country.

Anastasia Lin, a 25-year-old Toronto actress who was crowned Miss World Canada in May, was unable to obtain a visa in advance of her arrival for the contest finals this week in Sanya, on the southern Chinese resort island of Hainan.

But she said she attempted to enter the country anyway based on a rule that allows Canadian citizens to obtain a landing visa upon arrival in Sanya.
Lin, who is a practitioner of Falun Gong, a religious group that says it is repressed in China, told reporters at Hong Kong’s international airport that she was prevented from boarding a Dragonair flight to Sanya. She said there has been no response from the Chinese authorities so far.

“There’s no comment from the Chinese embassy ... so I realize that’s the tactics they’re using, they just want to let it die down,” said Lin, who was wheeling a silver suitcase and dressed in a long brown trench coat.

“It’s very difficult to stand up for what you believe in,” she said, adding: “I need to figure out what to do next.”

Lin testified at a U.S. congressional hearing on religious persecution in China in July. In her testimony, she said she wanted to “speak for those in China that are beaten, burned and electrocuted for holding to their beliefs”, according to the text of her statement on the Congressional-Executive Commission on China’s website.

OK guys ... no flames for dumb questions but really, there is something I genuinely do not understand.

a U.S. congressional hearing on religious persecution in China

Why is that a subject for a congressional hearing?

Why is it any of our business?

Are there no things domestically that are more important , than how the Chinese govt. deals with it’s population on religious matters?

Do we go on the assumption that everything the Chinese do is wrong?  And if so ... what are we supposed to do? 

Alright, so congress has had their little hearing.  Anything come of it?

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
