Linguistic analysis of a White House petition against increased coal-ash regulations submitted by coal industry front group Citizens for Recycling First in late 2011 revealed that hundreds of Chinese signatures from Colorado on the petition that are less than authentic.
The most basic of the fake names appear to be generated by software or small group of individuals that only changes simple things in the names names like Fred Smith, Larry Smith, Larry Williams, George Jones, William Jones, James Jones, Henry Jones, Peter Jones.
Other names are more inane, inanimate objects. These names are not traditional Chinese names, but foods or even animals. Some of these names include Steamed Bun, Older Sister, Steamed Bun Little Sister, Big Grey Wolf, Little Duck, and Little White Rabbit.
Some names are, in fact, invitations to travel, such as Come to China Big and Come to China Donkey.
Thirteen of the names in the petition include the first name Handsome, including Handsome Six, Handsome Good Looking, Handsome Dragon and Most Handsome Guy.
Historical literary figures even came out in support of coal ash, including Dasheng Sun, the monkey king in Journey to the West (a famous Chinese novel), and Shanbo Liang, who is the protagonist in a well-known Chinese legend.
The petition was asking to protect coal ash recycling by promptly enacting disposal regulations that do NOT designate coal ash a hazardous waste. It gained 5,400 signatures within the first month, warranting an official White House response.
Was this a computer generated petition? Is there software floating around out there capable of generating fake names? Is that what happened to Thad McCotter?
Hacked by libtards.
Did Too-Ning or Tung Chow appear on the petition?
Dong Hung Lo?
I think that is actually Barney Frank's married name.
One of Herb Caen’s priceless columns in the old San Fran Chronicle announced the engagement of Eric Poon to Cynthia Tang in a bold headline “Poon-Tang.”
So is the White House going to announce it is perfectly okay to purge this petition of phony names while it is illegal for Florida to purge its voter rolls of the same phony names? What’s sauce for the goose...

Remember Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse donated to nobama’s campaign in 2007/2008? Now fake names on a petition is not right? HA HA HA...you Americans....Nobama makes and breaks his own rules. He make me want to urp.
"Running Dog Lackeys" may or may not have its own character but there are a couple they say may almost always mean that from the syntax where you see them.
Those clever Chinese ~ always with a good joke on us.
Now, without syntax, how is it anybody translated those characters?
I laughed! Too funny!
