They're not idiots.

God help us.

LOL... China :)

A good one, Mr. Blue.

I gotta agree, "they" are not stupid. Overseas they're being called communists, Marxists, fascists or something similar.

China, how're things in China? When I was there, it was a garbage dump and possessed the qualities mentioned in the post.

I'm sure glad I don't live there :)

You all stay safe,

Tino... Thanks for stopping by.

Good point regarding the "view" from overseas. We rarely stop to think about how the rest of the world views us and what is going on here. Distance may increase accuracy in that case :)
