    With all this going on in China just makes me think that they won’t stay there long and eventually try to invade the west coast.. I had a dream one, night couple months back that,I was in a plane full of Chinese people… Same dream I stepped out on my porch and saw a planet that looked just like earth and could see it so clearly!
