Molavian: Why the long face?


Correction: Why the rong face?

/why make fun of the disfigured when you can make fun of the disfigured while being racist?

Is that a squirrel storing nuts for the winter?

Makes you wonder if her tumors pulsate when she gets "excited."

Furthermore, how in the hell did she manage to have two children? Maybe she beat someone over the head, dragged him off to her little Chinese hut, and did Quagmire stuff to him? Twice?

The Chinese government would be glad to ease her misery with a bullet to the base of the skull. But, seeing as how her family would get billed for the cost of the bullet, which she can't afford, she'll just have to suffer.

FTA: In China, healthcare has disintegrated in recent decades when the old state system was dismantled and medical fees introduced.

That is all.

There are people on popthatzit.com just dreaming about taking those out.

So if you make people dependent on a government program, people will suffer when you take that program away?

Why, that means we should put more programs in place!

Well, if this corporate whore had only used natural remedies instead of relying on Big Pharma's lies, she wouldn't look like Rocky Dennis, would she?

Dude, these things popped up ten years ago. That would make her 30 at the time.

Oh my god. I just got that. Seriously, even after your explanation I almost didn't get it. I do feel like I'm just not that bright now. But at least I'm happy.

Yes because making people dependant on for profit insurance to pay for medical treatmant has worked SOOooooo much better.

Idiot.

If it helps I didn't get it either. I just didn't want to draw attention to that.

No she was getting raped by ten pollocks and when she yelled 'Nein, Nein' one left.

In my defense. She's really really smart.
She only loves me for my cooking.

It's certainly an HOTY contender. I...just can't bring myself to join in the revelry of snark. Not this time.

Which reminds me of the recipe for Irish bean soup. It calls for 239 beans because one more would make it too farty.

Wow, that takes the cake for the most depressing thing I've read all week.
I get the joke in the headline, and even THAT didn't lighten my mood. Ugh. This is a rough one, gotta say.

AverageAmericanGuy: The picture of her as a young mother shows her to have been a cute, vibrant young lady. But sitting next to what I suppose is her cousin, that probably was going to be short-lived anyway.

Li Hongfang, 40, is shunned in public because of the rare condition which has caused her face to slowly swell.

But does she have a big dish of beef chow mein....?

/AROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

No free medicine in a "communist" country? I am shocked.

Indeed, although I will admit I didn't think about it until you mentioned it.

Bathia_Mapes: Dear, God! Poor woman. :-(

Hopefully someone will see this story and either pay for the necessary surgery or a surgeon will volunteer their services.

Sometimes publicity such as this is necessary.


Trouble is it's not that simple. I doubt one surgery, or even a few surgeries, will take care of things. If she lived somewhere where lifelong healthcare, including surgical care, was socialised, she may have a chance. This looks pretty advanced, and will need a whole lot of treatment. If only it had been treated sooner, she would likely have a better prognosis. Medical care should be socialised. Everyone should help pay for everyone else, because all of this crap can happen to anyone, at any time, and screw all you guys who would say if she can't pay then too bad. Just you wait until you get sick.

This proves that China is not socialist. Instead it's very much like what the Republicans want, except there'd be a cross on their flag instead of stars.

Why stop there? We should socialize all risks, including basic shelter, food, auto repair, natural disasters, disabled persons, immigrants, investment loss and death benefits. Everyone contributes and everyone gets their fair share.

Reread the headline keeping in mind, 7 + 2 be 9.
Or just read the very good explanations in the thread.
