China vs. Taiwan: Part 1

Setting: At a2f’s last Yosemite trip, sister Y (mainland Chinese) and brother J (Taiwanese) were arguing about China vs. Taiwan.

Sister Y: Taiwan is just China. It’s a part of China.

Brother J: No, China is Taiwan. Taiwan is the real China.

Sister Y: What? Taiwan is just a part of China!

Brother J: Well, you guys in China got help from Russia, evil Stalin.

Sister Y: Oh yeah? You guys got help from the United States, those capitalists.

Everyone: [silence]

(By the way, this happened during our 4th of July outing)

Sister Y is lucky we no longer live in the age of McCarthy

I think we can all forgive Sister Y if she makes a public declaration that Taiwan is superior!

Likewise, brother J is not me! However, I'd like to note that the Communists did receive help from the Soviets...
