Premier Wen's Chinese New Year

Premier Wen spent Chinese New Year in a local Qiang village (Qiang is one of the 55 ethnic minorities), had dinner in the cafeteria of a middle school in Beichuan, and visiting villages that were struke by the Sichuan Earthquake of last May.  Apparently Premier Wen's cooking skills are pretty good, lol.

Ignoring the little annoying voice in the back of my head ringing out "propaganda, propaganda, propaganda" since I trust Premier Wen enough to give him the benefit of the doubt that he's sincere, it makes me happy to see that the lives of the victims of the earthquake are beginning to go back to normal again .

(BTW, that voice is annoying, I've been brainwashed goddamit.  I mean hell I LIKE the CCP and that voice is still ringing in my head, yet it's not nearly as loud for other governments...actually it's not there at all for other governments,  even the USA's as much as I may criticize them).
