Is China copying the old imperial Japan?

Keep in mind that Mao once said that he could kill one hundred million Americans and for us that would be a tragedy. We could kill one hundred million Chinese and that would not phase him. That's a paraphrase, of course because I don't remember the exact quote, but it pretty much hits the nail on the head. Keep that in mind because the US population is roughly 350 million and the Chinese population is over a billion.
So this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause.

Actually, yes there was life before oxygen. Simple organisms began using photosynthesis and started emitting oxygen as a byproduct. At that time in the earth's evolution, oxygen was a toxic poison. So, Really.
You really are quite full of yourself, aren't you?
Wrong. Oil production on federal land is down 17% under Obama. Where the production has increased is on private land where Obama has no control. Obama care will cost a trillion more than was advertised. Where is that money going to come from. He has added 5 trillion to the deficit since he's been in office. As to restoring credibility around the world, a lot of regimes will look at what he has done as sign of weakness. He has insulted the British, thrown Israel under the bus, increased drone attacks substantially, even going so far as to kill an American citizen in Yemen without benefit of a trial, not that I cry any tears over Al-Alawki.
Using David Gregory's comments on this is pure gold. Amazing.
Moron! Who do you think really pays for all this "free stuff"? The cost of my policy will go up because of all this "free stuff"! You think all these free services grow on trees?
