The secrets of why many CCP senior officials live beyond the age of 100

The Chinese Communist Party has a massive privileged class of senior officials who enjoy staggering retirement packages. Excluding pension and rank entitlement expenses, former Communist Party chief Jiang Zemin spent a total of$5.6 million USD on public expenses for the year. Retired senior cadres at the vice-premier level and above, including the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, the Chairman of the National People's Congress, and the Vice President of the People's Republic of China alone, spent an average of $3.98 million USD (RMB 27.25 million) per year. Eighty-one senior officials at the vice-premier level each averaged $580,000 USD (RMB 3.95 million) per year.

I know an ethnic Chinese couple who emigrated here to Melbourne around 2005, purchasing a local retail business. Both left decent jobs, he had been running a factory in Beijing since the late 90's.

Last year the wife turned 45 (retirement age for women in China) and went home, while he kept the business running until early this year when he turned 50 (male retirement age in China), sold the business and went home.

He said going back was a good option because the pension rate is 80% of what you were last earning in your job there. He then said, "Not bad for a Communist country, huh!" and laughed (ironically). So, not all the Chinese civilians are starving their way into old age.

ANY "encapsulation" of 1.3 Billion Peoples' Lives in 10 minutes ...

--> Is going to "leave out" a LOT !!! ;-)

When I SEE the way: Chinese etc... "Treat" animals ... I QUESTION whether: They are even "Human" ?!!! :-o

In the Oceans most ALL start-out microscopically SMALL (Whales are mammals and the "exception"!)

--> (a lot of plankton is photosynthetic "plant-life") Each Sea creature has Had to STRUGGLE a Lot to even GET to THAT Size !!!

Many Tiny Sea creatures "shelter" in Coastal: few inches deep mangrove swamps etc. to GET to ANY sort of Size!

Life on the land in comparison is nowhere near as Brutal!

"Flight" (is running!) : Fight : Freeze (many modern surfaces: Negate insects' / spiders' etc instinctual use of this!)
(An Animal, "Backed-into a Corner" -- NOW: MUST FIGHT: with ALL that they have-got!)

(Maybe 50% of OUR "Vision" is: Movement and Outline Detection!)

Women often "freeze" when facing Naggers etc ... and it is a Man's "Insistence": "We have-to Get-Out-of-Here-NOW !!!"
-- That SAVES Them !!! (Naggers have NO "compassion" etc. -- They attack WEAKNESS in-GROUPS ... and LAUGH ... as they "Do their Thing"! :-o

ALL Flying Creatures (Birds and Bees -- Which Symbolise: Friends and Family) WALK short-Distances, and FLY Long-distances.

There are many many species of birds ... they Have NO "arms" and can "Punch" No one!

Obviously Protecting and Keeping-WARM: Eggs, and Young-Chicks is a Vulnerable-Part of a Bird's Life!

(Many Many species of Birds: LOYALLY "Pair"... for-Life! -- Birds in Many ways are Like: Angels!)

Many birds make their Nests in Trees !!!

Others have established Loooong Migration Routines and SAFE: Cliff-Top and Rocky-Mountain-Islands to: "Avoid" having to "Deal-with" "ARSE-HOLES" -- Especially When: RAISING_UP Their Precious-Chicks !!! ;-)

"Clutching at Straws" ... in the Ocean a man and woman KNOW: That in Order to SURVIVE: They MUST Cling-For-Their-LIFE:
--> TO a, as LARGE as Possible: Floating-WOOD item! (Straw is NOT-"Sufficient" for SURVIVAL !!!)

--> There is NO "Substitute" for STRENGTH!

(Begging for "Privileges" to be "Granted" to You ... is a Sad, and Wrought-with-"Disappointment" ... WEAK "Position"!
