How many versions of a camera, tv, radio, video player, pc, cell phone do we really need. As soon as you buy one it is already obsolete. I have a whole room of these antiques and am selling them off on ebay then I am done with all that garbage that has more useless functions and features that no one uses or needs.

My jwife said she read a news article that stated that the collapsed building's support beams had paint cans in them to give the appearance of having metal supports. Sounds like if true the building contractors of this and any other of its buildings are going to see the rest of their lives in jail.

If you live in a country and or state that regulary is snowned upon, then shame on you if you are not prepared for the weather. I see all sorts of peole on tv that travel wearing clothing that is totally stupid in case that they need to be exposed to the elements. I am also dumbfounded that in a time when we have droughts that some numnut scientists did not get an Idea to capture the excess moisture in any of its forms and store it then redistribute it to areas that need it. In other words capture rain, snow and other water and pipe it to where it is most needed.

Sorry to hear that Rick O'Barry was not allowed entry to Japan. When is Japan going to self police this horrible murder of these gentle creatures. Many years ago I decided that zoos and Aquariums as well as circuses are terrible forms of entertainment and never took my children to them. All the folks who say that those establishments are concerned about preserving wildlife are full of it. It always about the money in any industry. I hope that the younger Japanese people will boycott all companies that deal in these practices and sources of fake foods.

The virus is bad enough and are the Olympics still on? Brazil is in trouble since they lack proper sanitation, a clean water supply and personal security issues for visitors to the Olympics. I would not venture there if you gave me free airfare and a nice hotel. Just wait until we hear all the news stories during the Olympics about health and criminal problems. Also a good event for the Jihadists to cause problems at with Brazil's loose security measures.

If a company pays you an hourly wage and you are hired to work a forty hour work week then want to take let's say four prayer times per work shift, you should have to work longer to cover the lost work time due to your prayer schedules or get paid less. If I was a company owner and had to employ people who have strict religious ethics that will interfere with the job they are to be hired for then don't hire them. If they complain that they cannot be discriminated upon due to their religious beliefs then what is the USA going to do with all foreign workers coming to the USA to work and have to accommodate their cultural policies and then the company cannot function normally. Please keep your politics and religion at home and don't take it to the workplace. I have another idea that I am going to create my own religion that says that since I have European roots I can take a 5-6 week summer vacation and get paid for it even though I don't come to work and the company has to hire more people to cover my absence. When is the human race going to understand that there is no god and god's creation is simply a means to control people's behavior which was needed in the past before a legal system was created and now some religions carry it on to excess.

Ok fine. The USA is selling off its main industrial brands to the Chinese. Personally If I cannot buy US, Japanese or Korean I will settle for European before I would think about Chinese made products. Just dont trust the reliability and service support

Well I was waiting for the jihadist muslims to start their crap in Indonesia and here we go. So far Indonesian Muslims have been pretty much benign. Dont know if these clowns are home grown jihadists or outsiders but it does not matter anymore. We need to take the message home to the muslim nations that they need to investigate, expose and destroy these perverted monsters. One thing that I find omnipresent in the fight against radical jihadists is that everyday Muslims are not turning these a holes in or taking care of the problem themselves. Why! Ask yourself that question, why are the regular Muslims not fixing this horrible problem and why does Christian, jew and people of other faiths have to take care of their home grown problems? Is this a conspiracy and the silent lambs are part of the problem? Everyone needs to do some research here and ask your friendly muslims why and what are they doing to expose and contain this problem

Just the opposite of stress, I would transfer my stress to an army of stress relievers. Whichever way I decide to recieve the winnings, the stress would be on all the people who screwed me throughout my life. They would have the issue of looking over their shoulder every minute of each and every day for the rest of their lives. Lol

With modern print methods, a print run of 1 or 1,000,000 are easy to produce so there is no reason that 15,000 copies are a problem for any printing company to manufacture, hell I can go to FedEx Kinko's and get 15,000 books by next week.

Months ago I said that this was going to be a huge problem for Europe with all these so called refugees invading not emigrating into Europe. Now look at just the beginning of Europe's demise. If I was a citizen of Germany, I would take up arms and put every one of those law breakers out on the next flight to the ME after they are fingerprinted, photographed and DNA samples taken and if they show up in Europe again its prison for life with hard labor like a Gulag, no prayer time, no TV, radio or anything to read, in other words you will work until you drop dead.
