Well ... if you're gonna steal, steal from the best.

*sigh*

Hey, Trump! How about protecting our intellectual property! Remember when Clinton sold guidance technology to the Red's? How come he's not picking up the soap bar in a prison shower? If I did that I would be the one backing out of the prison shower every night! (see: American submarine sailor who did time for a few photos taken in an old submarines engine-room).

I don't blame the Chinese -- they're taking the escalator, not the stairs. Smart. It's up to us to guard the gate. Our representatives are unwilling/incapable of doing so. Why is it so many representatives at the Federal level leave office as millionaires?

Sorry about the rant, but I see our government and treasure slipping away from us each day. Securing the vent.

I guess time will tell as at one point they'd planned on ripping off Pegasus as well.
