The government buildings face the south, those with cause but not money may not enter.

人民日报人民日 [网易北京市网友]:

It’s always been a bunch of Americans judging the Chinese.

dgysd [网易湖南省邵阳市网友]:

The buildings look similar, but what about the law?

There is no most shameless, only even more shameless.

网易山东省济宁市网友 ip:112.236.*.*:

Having the appearance of others but not their character [essence], and I don’t even dare to mention America’s laws. A country where there it is dangerous for a citizen to even say too much, hehe, so sad.

If you don’t like China, you can get the hell out! Why bother sticking around? Don’t ask what the country has done for you! First think about what you’ve done for the country! Without the country being rich and powerful, can your family/household be happy? I strongly request that NetEase implement a real-name account system, because there are so many scumbags talking trash about our government officials on this platform. These guys are all impotent [useless, cowards] in the face of the Diaoyu Islands [aka Senkaku Islands], and only act self-righteous when inside the country [or discussing domestic matters]!
A son never thinks his mother ugly, a dog never thinks his master poor! Remember, you are a Chinese person, the specific embodiment of being patriotic is to love our government officials like the Americans love Obama! A person must never forget their roots! Learn to be grateful! Everyone must remember to do their best to be a “Four Haves” [someone with dreams, ethics, knowledge, and disciplines] who contributes to the society like me! Thank you everyone for your support.

If our government officials do something meaningful/real for the people, I trust everyone would love them, but what have our officials really done? The higher [central] authorities, I don’t know, but from the government officials around us, I don’t feel there’s anything about them worth our love. Always saying they serve the people, that they’re the good sons of people, but in reality? Which one of them isn’t standing high above the masses, doing nothing but “face” projects, and in the end, driving people to death, using all sorts of methods to take taxpayers’ money and stuffing it all into their own pockets? It takes more than a million yuan to buy yourself a village head. They talk about anti-corruption all the time, yet corruption is right in front of them… I can only say that people like you are ignorant, and patriotism is also no like what you said.

Forgot to take your medicine again today? Put on your underpants, and return to your room, I’m going to increase your dosage.

“王满银”, is it? I’ll give you a real-name system. I am Zhou Hongwei of Liaoning Province Lingyuan City.
And today I simply want to flame you. Fucking, who TM didn’t zip his zipper and let you out, who was it? Hurry and zip it up, and put this cock back in. Then eat a basket of estrogen so it’ll stay flaccid for the rest of its life.

小强大佬 [网易广东省东莞市网友]: (responding to above)

Brother, I support you, that guy named “王满银” is just fucking a piece of garbage, I don’t even know how his parents made him.

腾讯网友 穿针的线?!:

Still the old saying, the government will never treat themselves bad.
The ordinary common people’s well-being is only to be talked about, the places where children have classes are just for show; To solve one person’s pension problem requires them waiting for N number of people to come handle it, while the purchase of school buses is only because they were forced to.
Look at our village governments, county governments, town governments, city govenrments, etc, each is more niu than the other.

腾讯乌鲁木齐市网友 驍騎校尉…:

Why does an IPhone 5 cost 399 USD in the US? Why does it cost 5290 RMB in mainland China? The main reason for this huge difference is because China’s taxes are too heavy. “Using what comes from the people on the people” is what they should do.

腾讯上海市网友 舍得:

The Americans see it [the Capitol Building] as the highest symbol of “of the people, by the people, and for the people”. Chinese see it as the supreme symbol of absolute hegemony, vowing to compete against the US…

腾讯网友 Hunter:

No matter how impoverished we are, we must not let the leaders be poor. No matter how hard it is, we must not let the government cadres suffer!

腾讯网友 739600513:

The awesome Heavenly Kingdom, America is dying. Their Capitol Building is only at the same level as a China’s local courthouses. Compared like this, China’s economy must be ahead of America’s by several hundred years! May I ask the mighty officials working in these buildings, when will space shuttles and aircraft carriers be manufactured to be your transportation?

腾讯贵港市网友 380101999:

Very imposing/stylish… Hehe… If even the Construction Bureau can approve them, what is there left for us to say?

腾讯网友 394379904:

Emulating strong countries is good, but I hope it’s not just limited to architecture. Learning from their ways of governing a country is the way to enrich our country and our people.

腾讯网友 623:

First: These buildings have been around for a long time already… Second: It’s at least better than those impoverished areas building fancy government buildings. Third: On this, whatever we say is useless. It should be the country that issues standards. Like engine capacities for automobiles given to civil servants. What does everyone think?

腾讯乌鲁木齐市网友 淡泊:

Same old same old, just look at the government buildings everywhere, how many of them are shabby? The leaders wouldn’t notice? This is the so-called lighting & landscaping projects and beautification projects that every city is doing, all funded by the tax money that both large and small business have worked so hard to earn. Who can understand?

腾讯网友 放屁崩出屎:

Even this is worth mentioning? Original poster, are you a refugee who just arrived in China? This is a very normal thing.
