When the U.S. cuts ties with the House of Saud, that's when the Petrodollar (and the dollar as a reserve currency) will die.
Since the insanely low interest rates on U.S. debt (and all the other central banks that print fungible currency) is BASED on that reserve currency, they will go SKY HIGH when the house of saud is no longer the friend of the U.S.
What happens then?
Western economies will collapse unto themselves. The U.S. (which imports WAY more that it exports) is depending on being able to pay for oil with dollars, will see gas go to $20 a gallon AT LEAST. As will food increase a thousandfold in price.
If the U.S. ditches the House of Saud, half of Americans will be dead within a few months.
It's that simple.
AND the U.S. military will sputter and die.
The U.S. Military Empire will drop nuclear bombs on half the planet before it gives up its reserve currency.
Count on it.

I guess they aren't worried about the Japanese-government connected gangs (construction companies) that will take their usual siphon off the billions of dollars from this Olympic-sized boondoggle.

Both Google's and Apple's size is based on a HUGELY inflated stock market more than anything else.
As well as crafty off shore tax evasion, AND cheap labor based production.
Course you won't read anything about THAT in these media love-fest "press releases."

Because Japanese are like cats.
Preoccupied with cleaning and afraid to go into the water.
Posted in: Cats are all the rage these days — bookstores are lined with dozens of photo books featuring cute little felines, and they’re popular online as well. Why do Japanese people have such a love affair with cats?

I'm sure the guys who "accidentally" caught it in a net decided to NOT let it go and bring it to the aquarium because they were "scientists."
I find it hard to believe that after accidentally catching a great white, they'd call an aquarium. This is hunted and caught, just like in jaws.

So this "expert" thinks people are scared of buying bikes because they think they are too dangerous, and if they simply "educate the public" then people will buy more bikes?

Global economic growth will be “disappointing and patchy” in 2016
Global economic growth will be “disappointing and patchy” in 2016
Disappointing = many will lose their jobs, their homes, and their lives
Patchy = only the rich will do good, (Pirate elites with eye patches = 'patchy')

I think when he says "technology," he's not talking about the growing, rather the delivery. Refrigerated vehicles, those new inventions.
Posted in: Vegetables and meat grown with Japanese technology are really very good. They are popular with the local people here, and I want to further promote Japanese foods.

Smart people who become leaders are smart enough to tell the voters what they want to hear while doing whatever they want that increases their own fortunes. This error this article makes is assuming people become president because they want to help out the man on the street.
They do not. They only lust for power. The REALLY smart people stay behind the scenes and control the goofs who need to stand up and be heralded as "important." It's those sociopaths that really control society.

You know, a lot of things about life on planet Earth suck. But idiot politicians think that by pointing out these things, they're somehow "insightful" or something. If old people talking to their TV are bored and lonely enough, they'll find a way to fix it. I don't think it's the purpose of dogooder governments to force people out of their homes "just because" they can feel like they are helping people. Sure, stick a flyer in their door about any opportunities, but if they want to slip into senility while watching TV, what's the problem?
Posted in: There are old people living alone in apartments with only the television to talk to -- that’s a miserable life.
