It is almost inconceivable that there are worms born into this world that have so little regard for their fellow man. I would put them all in a special category of being sub-human vermin.
I have been standing on my soap box for years expounding on the threat China poses to the world. In some instances, they are taking control of, or destroying the world, without having to fire a single shot. YETTTTT!!
The blame can be placed in multiple areas. #1 to the greedy/soulless/bastards that manufacture the counterfeit pills – #2 to the idiots that consume them – # 3 probably the biggest culprit is the Chinese government that can put and end to the deliberate murder and poisoning of millions of people around the world, but refuse to do so.
This father and son team are responsible for the distribution of millions of illegal pills and are allowed by their government to walk the streets freely. It would not surprise me at all if some of the authorities are complicate in these crimes.
In my post 10 minutes ago, I made reference to namkind self-destructing. WELL!! Show me I am wrong. It is like a slow growing cancer. It is not apparent early or ignored as nothing to worry about, but before we know it, it will totally captivate us.

Can this speeding train be stopped or turned around. I really doubt it. The ONLY real answer to it all is, EDUCATION starting from infancy. If that policy was put into operation this very day, it would take 4 – 5 generations to achieve any success. Maybe. BUTT like everything else, the world wants instant results. I used to tell my students; it took you 20 years to get into the poor condition you are in, now you want to correct it in 30 days. Never happen. It is a very tough to get to the summit of the mountain, that 99% of he people are not willing to climb.
All I can say is; we are the ONLY person that can control our destiny and the 99% I referred to are too much of a denial of too lazy to do anything about it. When they finally are at their point of no return, they throw up their pathetic hands and say; how did this happen to me??
My answer to them is; YOU ASKED FOR IT!!
Lets face it folks, our government can not take care of itself; SOOOOOO if you are waiting for that to happen, for them to lead you down the FREE ROAD they are touting, you are pissing up a rope. This type of governing is what the wack-job socialists are pushing for. They want to control everything, promise the world, only to get your vote. After the fact you have shit in one hand and their promises in the other. So all you really have is shit.
If that turn around in EDUCATION is not implemented, I have made my predictions. It will not be today or tomorrow, BUTT I will assure you, the day of reckoning is coming.
As far as China goes, they are ONLY one of the major threats the USA is confronted with.
Where do we go?? EDUCATION and discipline are the only answers. Bend the trees while they are young. Don’t ever say; it can not happen to us, because it already has.
