Recently read a post on What's Hot section by +Cara Schulz about the U.S. is transforming into a policing state. Apparently it has become a popular notion. This notion gives me a great discomfort. I know it is wrong, but I don't have a good/logical argument against it. It constantly amazes me, however, that so many people in the free world have no idea what free is, and are in fact unknowingly pursuing a lawless/Utopian state.

That's when this post I linked came into rescue. This post perfectly reflects how people are in fact trolling (hopefully unknowingly) when they are hyper paranoid about the U.S. transforming into a policing state. There is a difference between armed forces policing the street monitoring regular innocent people to protect the government and armed forces in the street to protect the aforementioned regular innocent people from terrorists because that said terrorists made the regular streets a war-zone. People hate the former while people welcome the latter. Move to Syria or one of the high criminal rate area to understand how that feel, if you have trouble understanding. The latter even asked for permission and respected people and their properties even when they were trying to protect people. When is the last time you asked your kids politely to look both ways before crossing the street when your kids are already running towards the middle of the street?

I grew up in Beijing. People around me, including my parents, who were old enough at the time to remember the famous incident happened at the famous square, described the event to me numerous times as I grew up. Everything sounded different this time around in Boston, while many people are trying to draw connections between these two. Not sure if you noticed, but even after so many years of reform, and the fact that I'm personally in Boston (area), I'm still afraid to spell out the sensitive word at a U.S. social network in case I would be in trouble next time I visit my folks.

Additionally, I can't understand why I have to spell this out, but news flash everybody, if somebody with power (especially a military one) wants to dictate, he/she doesn't need to "ease into" this idea, or "warm people up" to this idea. Obese people with assault rifles are no match to professional soldiers with heavy armors.

Although I have a 6-hour layover, having to go through SFO's security check point makes me uncertain whether I can make it… Hello, full body scan

People lining up in front of a Nike store. The best part? The sign on the door clearly says we are closed for the day.

Got two "the new iPad" in the past 15 days. Thankfully the #Apple Store at Pheasant Lane Mall is pretty cool about the one that's 15 days old, and let me return both. Otherwise, it would be the most epic buyer's remorse ever. #unpredictable #apple is the #newmotorola
