I really can't believe that China is going to be hosting the Olympics next year!!! There are so many reasons that this is totally inappropriate....

when i started traveling overseas, the passport process brought on feelings of being property of the u.s. goverment. the chinese are taking it to the ultimate -- life or death if you do or don't abide by their rules. we've been deceived about true freedom (mother nature's rules).

What is it with China and Tibet? Tibet is almost uninhabitable yes it is home to the Dali Lama in (exile) is Buddhism that threatening country that is emerging as a powerful industrialized nation of a Socialist Democracy. They are feeding their people but this human rights issue has to change. Economic power can only go so far. In hindsight we got away with decimating the Native Americans as well as being extremely complicit in in slaving many Africans and treating them as property like the livestock. It was not until 1964 the Civil Rights act was finally passed almost a century after the Civil War and The Emancipation Proclamation.
