    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Yeesh, I only just read this. Zipperhead?" Come on.

    Maybe you made a stupid uniformed mistake in using the term, serpenddove, if so, admit it and apologize. We all make mistakes. But defending it? That's just insult upon insult. Crass.

    From Korea to Taiwan, China will be pushed to extend its tactical naval reach. We have controlled all of those waters for many years. We and China do not share well, and, at the most, any partnership will be tense.

    China's swift upgrading in technology should come as no surprise to our leaders, for we helped make this possible for them. For many, many years, we have invited China to send their students to America to receive high technology and science schooling. When the Chinese students finish their graduate programs, they would like to remain in America to live and work. But they are not allowed to do so. Our own policies dictate that they must return to China following the completion of their schooling. So, they return to put their high technology educations to work in China. This is the key to China's swiftly advancing technological level. In the mean time, our own American students are tending toward educations in business and liberal arts. The end product of both of these trends is that American technology is paralysed here at home. Many high tech companies are complaining that they cannot find qualified people to fill their vacancies (IBM has been screaming about this for years); some of these companies are moving to China where they can now find high tech qualified people to hire. If this trend is allowed to continue, American technological dominance will be a thing of the past (some are saying that this is already the case). Regardless of what anyone feels about immigration, our current policies are killing our future.

    "...My friend... Thao Vang Lor. On the condition that you don't chop-top the roof like one of those beaners, don't paint any idiotic flames on it like some white trash hillbilly, and don't put a big, gay spoiler on the rear end like you see on all the other zipperheads' cars. It just looks like hell. If you can refrain from doing any of that... it's yours." ~ Lawyer, Gran Torino

    It's ok. These films don't always translate well overseas.

    Why the kneejerk reaction calling people racists? Eccl 10:2. Do you do this regularly in social settings?

    There's your problem right there. You don't know Americans too well, do you? China's rising. Get to know them. They'll cozy up to you and your communist buddies (Eze 26-28). Do you like egg-a-rolls and wodka? We had Europe's back for a while but you can see that that is coming to an end. Too bad about that anti-American strain from the Left in your country.

    Was it right for America to fight in Korea? How about Vietnam? My answer is an unequivocal yes. How 'bout you?

    Do you believe America should have gone to war in Korea and Vietnam?

    Contrary to what many Americans seem to think, the document we now call "the Constitution" and the Declaration of Independence are not pretty much the same thing or "connected in spirit," or "two sides of the same coin." The two documents were written by two different groups of people at two different times to accomplish two totally different goals.

    No answer from you. Thought so.

    If communism came here to our shores, then you'd be right.
