It was good while it lasted, but the party's over.

This was so, so predictable the moment we handed you over in...1997 was it?

...and the CCP promised something like 50 years of autonomy as part of the deal. Native Americans know how government promises and deals end up. Now, you do too.

On the bright side, maybe this will increase our imports of Chinese women. And maybe if we get some fresh immigrants from China, we can get some better Chinese food...a little more authentic than this sugar saturated crap we have in America, but maybe not quite as authentic as China itself...I've seen what you guys eat...we don't need that here. We're happy with chickens, pigs, and cattle with our rice. Keep the dogs, bats, and snakes over your side, thanks.

A Rubicon has been crossed in Hong Kong.

No, it is not a conquering emperor looking to impose his order on a dying Roman Republic. It is the representatives of the Chinese dictators who have come to impose their dicta on the vibrantly free Hong Kong.

In much the same way, America has crossed a Rubicon with the unrestrained unleashing of unchecked governmental authority over the most intimate aspects of our lives.

Both have been justified by the word “emergency.” Hong Kong’s “emergency” is the justifiable protests against past efforts by the Chinese to impose authoritarian rule. America’s “emergency” is a virus, which in no way approximates the bubonic plagues of the past, but has a death rate comparable to a severe flu pandemic.

Caesar’s crossing the Rubicon is forever remembered in history because there was no turning back. The Roman Republic was lost and progressively more destructive imperial reigns marked Rome’s long decline.

Hong Kong faces the same prospect. Will the creative business geniuses stay on that island, or will they begin to take themselves and their wealth to safer locales? Hong Kong faces the prospect of a long decline.

What is America’s future now that our leaders have crossed the Rubicon?

It took centuries of decline before Rome was lost forever. How long will it take the U.S.? Is it reversible? Have we crossed our Rubicon?

All of the political power assumed for "The War on Terror", is now primarily used for the "War on Americans".

"Nothing to Hide, Nothing to Fear, as long as you are politically orthodox and viable."
