Hope it’s earthquake proof, if designed and built by the Chinese (stolen plans/technology) it may have issues. Just sayin’

I received an email the other day about a 30-story building they built in 15 days. I just don't know if I'd cotton to the idea of going into anything slapped together this way. Good googly-moogly!

In the U.S. it takes 90 days for the EPA and several other government agencies (federal, local, and state ) to even start look at the many paper applications to start build anything. Hey dummie democrats,socialism doesn't work. It's clear even in China they have less government red tape than we in the U.S.A has . the World trade center hasn't even been rebuilt yet after so many years.

But liberals/democrats think that the growing government and their regulations needs to grow even more.

China is building 50,000 skyscrapers in the next 20 years.

Yes, surprisingly mundane, especially when compared to the Burj.

Can’t be done in 90 days ... it’ll take that long to dig the foundation and allow the concrete to cure... unless they want to chance a result like my post immediately before this one..

As a kid I made things that looked just like that. Haven’t thought of that toy in decades - but it was white plastic with little squarish pieces for the corners with slots that the side pieces would slide into. I think it was the Elgo American Skyline construction set. Gosh I was ahead of my time ;-)

Glad their doing it over there and not here. Skyscrapers are ugly, and cause even more horrific traffic.

Maybe the Chinese will install 5,000 tiny apartments in the lower 20 floors of each of these buildings, so the cubicle workers won't even have to commute. They'll just get out of bed and hit the elevators. Throw up malls inside them, and the tenants/employees will never have to leave.

My point was to show the decline of the U.S.A that growing government and government regulations are causing and how electing Obama was a stupid mistake. It is obvious that there is more government red tape in the U.S. than in China now. So which is the more socialist country now? the U.S. is as government is growing at all levels.All those democrats who committed voter fraud are traitors. The U.S. has many times more oil ,coal, shale oil ,natural gas etc. than China or any other country but the EPA and the Obama communist won’t let us get to any energy sources.

IINM, ‘Agenda 21’ has *urban city living only* on their ‘To Do List’, eventually eliminating all suburban and rural life. Glad I’ll be dead by then. I won’t give-up the Family Farm.
