Since I am totally against the Chinese telling me what to do, even though the Chinese government has a huge red lacquered warehouse full of money and the American government has a dusty cellar under the Capitol full of I.O.U's to the Chinese: I have developed my own calendar. And since I believe in democracy, not communism, you get to pick which sign you want to be born under.
So there China!
