    Today we are going to see the Terracotta warriors which is one of the most amazing things I've seen in China. Our friends who live in Xian have loaned us a car so we have mobility here in Xian. Good thing too because our bags did not make it with us to Shanghai and the airlines shipped them to Xian last night and we had to drive to the airport late last night to pick them up. For some reason the jet lag has not really hit either of us very bad this trip (I sure don't miss that).

    It's a well known fact. There are usually less than 20 unsold seats and most of them are up front. The day we flew we were too low in the pecking order to get business class and had to settle for economy seating. It isn't too bad if you don't get next to someone over 300 pounds but it seems I always get a baby behind me kicking my seat (this time too!), On the way back we shall see what happens. Last time we got on at the very last second (had to run all the way to the gate) but we got business class which is always a huge benefit. If you fly buddy pass you have to be flexible and not on a deadline because you will be under too much stress. In the US and Europe you wait at the gate for available seats but in China they do it differently (it's China after all) and they don't allow anyone through security who doesn't have a seat so you wait at the ticket counter until they verify your seat (which is why we had to run all the way to the gate last time). On that flight there were about 5 standby passengers and in the priority we were 3 and 4. Number 5 was a young Chinese girl (22 maybe) who absolutely had to get to US the next day. My wife even overheard her (in Chinese) trying to get the gate agent to move her up in priority ahead of us but the agent wouldn't do it (not even sure if they can do that). It turns out we got the last two seats and as they were printing our boarding passes that girl was crying real tears because she was not going to make her appointment. The moral here is don't fly buddy pass (or any standby ticket) if you are not flexible.

    You are right about "rights". If one rejects that your "Creator" grants them in some definite way then they are all relative. We can bicker about rights and titles and duties all day long but if we don't accept some common "authority" for the issuance of such then we are all blowing smoke. I believe the ONLY "authority" is our Creator and exactly what He has to say is in dispute even by me. Since we cannot all agree on an "authority" (root word "author - think about it) where can we get common ground??

    We were going to start in Beijing but because we are flying on a standby buddy pass the flight from Detroit to Beijing was full and we switched to Shanghai (currently in the hotel room after a good 8 hours sleep which I desperately needed). From here we fly to Xian for a couple of days then to Wuhan which is my wife's hometown. We will spend about 5 days in Beijing the last days and try to get on the flight from Beijing to Detroit if seats are available...

    BMW's, Mercedes, and even a Cadillac or two. The old "Red Flag" limos are all stored away or on display. I know a guy in Xian who we will be visiting this trip who owns 3 of them at last count... He even let me drive one of them. What a trip!

    Anyone here want me to get them some good Chinese food while I'm there? This is one of our many trips to China to meet up with my wife's family and friends there as well as do some sight seeing. My biggest beef about China is their internet censorship. I hate not being able to get youtube without some VPN routing. I have 3 methods of connecting back to the homeland this trip. We have a Dell router at our office with VPN, I have subscribed to PureVPN and we have google remote desktop set up on several computers here at home. Hopefully at least one of these will enable me to have "internet freedom". Funny, I've watched the internet restrictions in China for about 15 years and I've been preaching that it's coming to the good ole' USA and guess what? Seems we are well on our way to restrictions that may be as bad as what the Chinese deal with...

    Depends on your definition of "title". There's an old saying that's not only wise, it's based in "law". "Possession is nine tenths of the law". This is an ancient and established principal that still holds true today. You have the burden to prove that something possessed by another is yours (and it's a high bar). This is why people would "stake out" their claim to land. They would mark it and declare it to be theirs. If someone else claims it they need to prove their "claim"...

    Really? Is there some plot map with deed information showing "the United States" as property owners?? If so who "deeded" the property to them and how did "they" obtain title??

    Actually not... If you want to believe in goonerment as set out in the constitution as the founders envisioned (they are rolling over for sure) then the goonerment is rightly called SERVANT! You cannot call "the people" their own "servant". The founders envisioned a goonerment that was to SERVE the people, not rule over them. As anyone who's even been partially awake these last 100 years knows "they" don't "serve" anyone, unless it's on a platter well done...

    No, aparently I don't "understand the fundamental philosophy that Man uses government to be his tools" because I certainly can't USE those "tools". If I could, I'd use them to force themselves from stealing property and killing peaceful people. "Brotherhood of men" is a great idea for having a code they want to follow for relations that they believe in but where it goes crazy haywire is where this "brotherhood" decides they can force their "code" on others who don't believe in it or care to pay for it... Show me the "moral" idea behind stealing someone's property or locking someone up for a "violating" a "code" that can claim no victim?? Indeed, I don't believe that a band of men have a moral standing to lock ANYONE up even for murder unless they are family or otherwise associated with the victim. Prisons are immoral...

    Right to property is another inherent right. If I have property then I can restrict who enters there. If you want to pass through my property then I can charge you a fee to pass. (This is all so basic I have a hard time believing you haven't heard this before therefore you are just trolling...)

    Ya, +rep... It's amazing how short people's memory are. It's a rigged game all right. TPTB have had the psychology figured out for many years on how to manipulate the masses. 99% of the people didn't even see that they'd left Ron off that graphic and many others. They just follow their programming...

    The constitution does not protect anyone's rights, unfortunately... I wish it did. Your rights are yours to protect and you can, if you wish, help to protect the rights of others. "People" have to protect rights, a paper document signed over 200 years ago cannot do anything as it's an inanimate object. While the words written on this document are genius, those words are disregarded by TPTB...
