That time of the year again

July 1st — Canada Day, Lady Diana’s birthday, the day for massive marches in Hong Kong, and if I remember right, my own birthday as well. (Don’t ask how old I am; I stopped counting.) My first birthday at home in America in years. Posts may be sparse as I have to spend time with the family, but I’ll try to slip off and blog whenever I get the chance. To my friends in HK, have a great time at the march.

To my friends in the US, remember, friends don’t let friends vote Republican. That’s what you can get me for my birthday — talk someone you love into voting for Kerry. Thanks.

Very happy birthday.

How much can I get paid to promote Kerry on my extreamly right right wing reactionary tabloid blog.

If you’re not signed up to vote, as is your right under the constitution, then get out there and vote Kerry in.

Something tells me the Angry Chinese Blogger is getting stale.

Richard, just got back from the march and it was interesting. More later.

More interesting than the march was an online discussion i had with someone in China who questioned how one person could represent the thoughts of many, after I told him what a lawyer had said about the Tung government.

Or, Joyeux Anniversaire (Sorry, I don’t have that many registered US voters around me now)

Happy birthday, Richard, from an admirer and follower of your thoughtful, informative and entertaining blog.

And yes, we indeed all need to encourage those we know and love (and don’t love) to get out there and vote. The havoc and damage that Bush and company have inflicted on the country and the world are truly frightening and need to be halted.

Peace!

Richard,
I hope this next year finds you in good health. Always wishing you the best, and of course, keep tellin’ it like it is. Happy Birthday. I think another girlie pic is in order.

Thanks to everyone! Another year older and deeper in debt. Much deeper. (Maybe I should put up a PayPal donation link on the map of China above.)

I quit counting how long ago I quit counting. It’s a geezer thing.

Best of the day! Enjoy.

Richard,

A wee bit late, but: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Uh, it’s PRINCESS Diana (she was married to a Prince, not a Lord).
But then, I prefer to call it Dominion Day as opposed to Canada Day…
