    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.

    Good thing. I saw the video where she couldn't even get into a school. It looked like she had next to zero security. Otherwise all of those folks might would have been arrested. Instead, they rushed her away. It was a WTF moment.

    URGENT: Please Call Gov. Sununu Right Away! Please politely call Gov.

    New Hampshire House Passes Bill That Would Require Courts to Fully Inform Juries CONCORD, N.H. (Feb. 15, 2017) http://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2017/02/new-hampshire-house-passes-bill-that-would-require-courts-to-fully-inform-juries/ New Hampshire is the only state to pass a jury nullification law. NH's recent law says that the defense is allowed to bring it up. The law would not have passed without the efforts of several free staters and others. This new bill is to make the government (court) also mention it. A similar bill passed the NH House last year but died in the NH Senate. This new bill has a couple Senate co-sponsors, so maybe that will help it?

    People need to look into community college. Live at home for a year or two while you attend community college and work, if you are too lazy to research grants and scholarships. That way you try out college and create no debt. If you like it, keep going and maybe get a loan. If not, no loss. Worked for this person.

    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??

    Not at all bad. I am really surprised you heard that Sununu was really bad. The only legitimate reason I know that people don't like him is because they don't like other people in his family. If he actually sticks with his campaign promises, I might not be able to think of a better governor off the top of my head other than maybe the Governor of Kentucky. Depending on how you feel about abortion, he might be the least bad governor in the nation if he sticks to his campaign promises. His campaign was mostly about passing the best Constitutional Carry law in the nation, improving school choice, cutting taxes, cutting regulations, right-to-work, election law reform, the drug abuse problem, reduce energy costs, decriminalizing cannabis, and partially funding kindergarten. I don't agree with much of his takes on drug abuse and kindergarten, but he was right on the vast majority of issues, and ran one of the most libertarian-friendly campaigns in the nation. In fact, as I pointed out, he just appointed the most pro-liberty Commissioner of Education in the nation! His budget advisor is the guy that runs the best known free market think tank in NH. His chief policy leader is the guy that ran Ron Paul's 2008 and 2012 campaigns in New Hampshire and I believe the rest of New England, the region of the nation Ron Paul did best ;) LibertyBallot.com supported him. In fact, here is part of what LibertyBallot.com said this about him.

    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...

    They don't. We voted for who is perhaps the least bad Governor in the nation at the highest level. In fact, his appointment for Commissioner of Education was the most pro-liberty major party primary candidate for governor in 2016. The new New Hampshire Commissioner of Education lost by around 1,000 votes to our present Governor in the Republican Primary for governor in 2016. Recently, our present Governor appointed him to run the Department of Education and he took office yesterday. It was a great day with lots of celebration around New Hampshire. We are very proud to have the most pro-liberty Commissioner of Education in the nation :)

    There are only two Libertarian Party state legislators in the entire nation. Half of them live in New Hampshire. The only pro-liberty Democratic Party legislators in recent years were all elected in either Manchester or Nashua New Hampshire. The majority of the pro-liberty Republican legislators in the nation live in New Hampshire. I wonder if there is a trend here? :confused:

    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"...

    Liberty activists have tried that and many other strategies for many decades. Generally, it is a very unsuccessful strategy. The same is true with the Libertarian Party strategy, and pretty much everything else that have been tried for many years.

    In the United States, you are most free from government in the bush of Alaska during winter. In real life, the rural parts of northern and central New Hampshire. Illegal immigrants are most free in urban California.

    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...)
