The government is not able to hide it, but publicity about such an occurrence is going to be slow, as the media is controlled. And China is using NAFTA to circumvent sanctions against China. It is how our markets are being flooded with cheap Chinese goods. But, they are there.
Did you say 6 or 60,000 troops? How can the media in Mexico and United States hide that? We know that we are buying China products, that is no secret. Look at the labels. What you posted is an old internet joke. It's not real. China would not send troops there, our Government and media would be all over that. China can hurt America more by financial means, they are not stupid people.

When you say “our tax dollars” who do believe is paying those tax dollars?
Why, all Americans, who do YOU believe is paying all those taxes? Only the gays? All Americans are paying those taxes, and most of us don't care if gays get to marry, or not. The majority that have any feelings on the matter, at all, do not agree with SSM. But, we are paying salary money for the small minority to get what they want, something of no value to the majority.

Sooooooo....are their wives aware of this? Do they love their wives? If both parties are aware, does it matter?

Who do you think is responsible for flooding “our markets” with cheap Chinese goods?
Ummm....The Chinese. And Mexico, when they allow ships bearing those same goods to arrive in Mexico, and get loaded into Mexican trucks that drive across the border, according to the most disastrous NAFTA agreement, and the U.S. Government, of course. And, we cannot forget the silly Americans, who spend their money on cheap, and shoddy, products marked "Made In China"...Shabby things that fall apart, or fail to work as advertised.. Sometimes these faulty goods spring apart, and injure some of us... Or poison us, as with the dry wall incident of about 8 or so years ago...

Very possible. I prefer to alert people, and if it is a false alarm, so much the better, than to sit in silence. But the other events are also occurring, the gunships in major U.S. cities, I have friends in various ones, and they corroborate this.

I see, makes sense. How have we gotten to this point? Why do American corporations sell us inferior products and why do we buy them? Whatever happened to WalMart’s “Made In The USA” business model?

It's amusing that you claim that truck drivers are hard-core alcoholics. There would be major amounts of DUI fatalities involving trucks every day, were this BS true. And if it wasn't for the hard working and skilled truck drivers, you wouldn't be able to buy your cheezy-poofs. Go back to Fantasy-Land, boy...
Yeah, that would make as much sense as lumping all Gay Americans in to one generalized statement now wouldn’t it?

So does al gore. Yes the gunships are moving in, soon the tanks will be rolling in the rural areas, then the china men will be rolling in on food trucks to sell the rice, we all need to be alerted and buy our anti-tank weapons before obama stops the sell of them and our missile launchers to get those warships. Hey if it's a false alarm at least we will be ready for the next false alarm on the internet.

well as long as you don’t know the meaning of the words there is no point in discussing this with you.
We are a representative democracy, we are also a republic
if you knew the meaning of the words you would understand, you refuse, so .... shrug, Ignorance is totally up to you
I know full well the meaning of the words, and it is pure ignorance such as yours which has lead us to this nonsense that we are in any way shape or form a democracy. You really should take the time to educate yourself.

BTW, take a peak at Article IV Section 4 for the US Constitution, you find NO mention of a "Democracy". In fact I challenge you to find a single reference by our founders to democracy which was NOT in the negative.

Perhaps a little less time on the internet and a little more time reading our founding documents would do you some good?

I do have to call you out on a bit of the above commentary...
Specifically regarding the legalisation of pot. Do you really think legalisation will increase usage? If so, you really ought to take a long hard look at prohibition and what it did, or rather didn't do, for alcohol consumption. Oh, you can look at what it did for organised crime if you want, as that was a magnificant failure for progress.
Hmm, interesting question. The impulse answer would seem to be that more people would use marijuana because of its legal status. This would seem to be confirmed by the numbers coming out of Colorado in regards to college students where it is claimed that the numbers have climbed drastically. But is all what it seems to be on the surface when we dig a bit deeper? Are there in fact an increased number of users, or are the users simply more open about the usage since it is now legal?

Now I don't agree completely with your analogy to prohibition of alcohol, I don't think the law lead to an increase in usage, it simply didn't result in a decrease. And there is certainly no doubt that organized crime received a boost thanks to the Amendment.

Off topic but perhaps I should purchase some extra ammo for my 45 and my Ar-15, Maybe an English to Chinese dictionary would also help?Those damn pesky under handed sneaky Chinese! Oh,oh,I just heard a noise in the back yard!!! Could it be? No,truthfully that Randy never ceases to amaze me with his utter B.S.! 60,000 Chinese at the mexican boarder,that would hardly be enough for the job now would it? LOL

Hypocritical response since it was you trying to marginalize and insult me.

You still have nothing but ad homoan attacks for the tree analogy. Here, try again;

The differences between marriage with/without kids and gay couples;

An apple tree bearing fruit.
An apple tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
An walnut tree who never bears any fruit wanting to be a apple tree.
An walnut tree hanging apples on it's branches pretending to be a apple tree.

Even funnier?

The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' apple trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call walnut trees apple trees too!

Smile.

If the reason a gay person marries a straight person is to stay in the closet, they propably do not tell their wife they are gay.

Lesbians who marry straight men may not yet realize that they are lesbians. Girls are condition at an early age to look forward to marriage and children. They often marry for the wedding, and to please their parents.

Food isn't just for nutrition either. There's sex, also, know as coital sexual intercourse, which an opposite sex couple engages in, and there is other sexual activity. A SSC is sexual with each other, they cannot have sex, by design definition.
It makes you look simpleminded when you say Same Sex Couples cannot have sex.

You forgot a significant possibility in your analogy: finding apples on the tree but refusing to call them apples as they are a varity you don't like-like the reality of gay and lesbain households raising children, functioning the same as ANY OTHER family, and your refusal to accept the fact.
