And here I thought my kids’ behavior was confusing...

Gao Zhan, now 44 and mother of 3, is about to be deported to China where, she claims, she will be subjected to torture and killed.  Not too difficult to believe on the face of it, but what blows my brain is the sequence of her activities.

1989 – Flees China to US after participating in the Tiananmen Square uprisings. Looks good.
2000 – Goes on vacation back to China (Huh?) and is arrested (Duh!) and is released after the intervention of the SecState and President Bush.  Looks stupid, but still OK.
2003 – Pleads Guilty to selling, under an assumed name, $1 Million in classified computer technology to a Chinese firm with known ties to their military. Whoops, where did that come from.  Looks very bad! She confessed people.
2005 – ICE wants her deported instead of keeping her in US prison (Duh, again!).

Now she says, “I really did appreciate President Bush’s help and Secretary Powell’s mentioning of my case. But why are they silent now?”

In the words of my elementary school buddies “No Shit Sherlock!”  We bend over backwards to save you from your own apparent stupidity and in return you do what?  Sell technology to our biggest (IMHO) enemy?  Hello! Have a nice time in Peking, or Beijing, or whatever they want to call it.

Ugh. Stupid people should be stopped from procreating. I suggest chastity belts. I'll be personally responsible for the keys...

We'd go extinct wouldn't we?

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'll have to try that dehydration thing. If I should ever decide to utilize my trunk. ;)
