I don't how many of you are following what is happening, but the protesters really f-ed up here. The police have the place surrounded and are not letting anyone out. The kids are armed with laser pointers, and attack the police with them, as soon as they try to make entrance to the airport.

All of these kids are going to die. You know the Chinese government has to take control of the ventilation system. From there, its down hill for all of them.

It's not going to end well, for anyone.

Anyone that trusts the Chi Coms is a screw-up.

It's a facist state -- a slave empire.

Kids here are a primary example of taking things for granted without having anything to compare how good they have it too.

It's far too easy for many of the little snowflakes in this country.

Watching these fine people fight for freedom from a government that will kill you in the street to keep order is awesome , but China aint going to let that happen without a fight . They have guts to fight back knowing what is going to happen . I hope it does not come to it but people are going to die fighting for freedom . I wish them the best .

Everyone in this nation should be forced to watch what's going on there . Thats what our forefathers , Grandparents , Fathers , Sons and brothers did for us . Many gave all for us !

When people feel they have nothing left to lose because things are hopeless the cream will rise to the top.

I wish them all the best and I hope people here take a lesson from them.

When Britain handed control of Hong Kong to China in 1997, some said this was inevitable, and that the Red Chinese were buying if not the complicity the complacency of the US government with massive contributions the the Clintons and many others.

Others snickered at those people for saying that, and for referring to them as Red Chinese, as they were commonly known in the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's. I'll tell you what: if my grandfather was alive, he'd feel vindicated, because he was right about every single thing he said about communists.

Since 1997 their economy is 11 times bigger, we had a dot com bust, the 9-11 attacks, followed by a real estate bubble and not quite a lost decade after it burst. Since then they have also annexed Tibet and Mongolia and islands in the South China Sea without firing a single shot.

It's like watching a python suffocate a pig, the python just squeezes out a little more air when it can and never lets up, while the pig wriggles. Unless someone cuts off the head of the snake, that pig is going to be eaten, there is no other ending to this story.

Are you referring to McCarthy? Boy howdy. I can think of a few words to describe that man, but visionary isn't one of them.

Hong Kong? I thought they all moved to Vancouver and drove up real estate prices.

MacArthur should have nuked Canada in 1812, then this would not have happened.
