We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It isn't surprising to me that they are building up their military. China will undoubtedly play a major role in the fulfillment of Biblical Endtime prophecy. The Bible says that an army of 200 million men will be destroyed. I believe a Chinese leader made the statement not too long ago that they could convievably field an army of 200 million. Coincidence?
