    "If you read the same news for example in Italian newspapers they speak about a way gloomier situation for the American economy that is still really struggling."

    That's funny. I don't recall the US running to Brussels to get a 600 billion euro bailout...which is what Italy did.

    Europe's idiotic policymakers are getting what they deserve. I would like to see way, way more public resistance against this disastrous policy as long as it remains non-violent.

    No "incidents" reported at the big event in Dresden, which is a very good thing indeed.

    "Do Japanese always have to be shown as brave, dedicated, honorable and or the victims. "

    Yes. They do.

    The same Swedish police who this past week were forced to admit they've been covering up numerous sexual assaults allegedly committed by Muslims?

    Yeah, I trust them. LOL. One law for one group of people, another law for others. That's Swedish "justice" for you.

    "It has to be because of backward compatibility."

    Which, um, is a good thing. I'm running Office 2003 on my windows 10. And it runs nearly flawlessly. 12 year difference.

    But better I should be forced to trash that expensive program every couple of years, eh? Who do you think I am? An Apple user? LOL.

    "Did you sleep through Windows 8?"

    No, I ran it on 2 machines. I found nothing wrong with it.

    "If W10 was that great, they wouldn't need to resort to such tricks"

    People are very stuck in their ways and are upset by the smallest learning curve. I know people using XP, an OS that is 15 years old! Ridiculous.

    Just download win 10. It's free, it works great even with old programs, and it keeps you up to date. How could any sane person argue with that?

    Legs aren't very sensitive to the cold. I remember playing rugby and soccer during Canadian winters and it wasn't a big deal.

    "Throughout US history, though, there have been individuals and groups willing to confront religious bigotry"

    True. But not now. Who now is standing up to Islamic bigotry? (apart from Trump LOL). In today's whacky PC climate, anyone (like me) who points to the oppression of women, homosexuals, and other heretics by Muslims is branded a racist.

    European people are learning what the Australians learned before: accepting boat people prompts more and more of them to come, greater higher and higher death tolls as they fall victim to the human smugglers.

    Sorry, that is not a humanitarian solution.

    "Obama met with Muslim university chaplains, community activists and public health professionals to discuss religious tolerance and freedom."

    I wonder what their position is on Muslim women having romantic relationships and marrying non-believers.

    "Much easier to use multiple language keyboards than Windows."

    What? For me, inconsistent keyboard layouts and switching input from English-Japanese are the most buggy, annoying things about my LInux rig (Zorin). Everything else is really good, though.

    I've gotten some great fares recently. Maybe 30-40 percent cheaper than before.

    "The Japanese tax office is making it complicated for everyone"

    This is the universal problem. Authorities have to make life hell for everyone because some people (usually from certain exotic parts of the world) who came before relentlessly ripped off the system.

    When I was younger, visas and foreign taxes were straightforward. No need for consultants, lawyers and accountants. Ironically, "globalization" along with mass regionally indiscriminate immigration has led to tougher, more rigid rules for all.

    "The problem is when the West goes in without being asked/invited."

    Nice sentiment, but bloodthirsty tyrants don't "invite" Westerners to come in and sort out their problems.

    "it may be time to panic."

    Why? What specific risks do you have in mind?

    "What is America, what is France, what is anyone in any country doing to help?"

    Whenever the West complies with such pleas, it ends up as being blamed for "starting" the conflict in the first place!

    Stay out, I say. As long as Muslims and the regressive left can scapegoat the West for local religious and tribal inspired conflicts, the horror in those regions will never improve.

    Meanwhile, we increasingly become targets for terror attacks made worse by our "obligation" to take in millions of people from the world's most dangerous places, where nearly everyone adheres to bigoted medieval attitudes. A lose-lose-lose proposition, indeed.

    Yet another example of how the Japanese -- its people and policymakers alike -- actually abhor globalization.

    "The facts say that most economic migrants this week were Moroccans."

    Why would Moroccans go all the way to Turkey to get to Europe, which is right across the narrow Gibraltor Straight from their own country.
