Gold should have never been removed from the monetary system. It would have been impossible for the US to reach $18 trillion in debt if the gold standard was still in existence. However, liberals love welfare and conservatives love warfare.

America's good days are behind it. We need to begin scaling down the welfare-warfare state if the country hopes to survive.

According to Usdebtclock.org literally half the American population is on some kind of Government program. So the "recovery" is nothing but smoke and mirrors.

To my way of thinking a truly intelligent machine is impossible? Please show me what line of programming you would use to create emotions such as love, fear, lust, hate, etc.

There has always been and will always be violence. Did Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Genghis Khan, Charles Manson, etc. play too much GTA? I've played through the first few missions and it's not much different than any "R" rated movie.
I've played video games since I was five years old (I'm 29) and generally play a few hours a day. I have other interests such as studying foreign languages (I speak both Japanese and Mandarin), listening to foreign music, exercising, and reading books on current events and history.

I'd still rather throw my chips in with Japan. The US has until 2026 until Medicare runs out and 56 million Americans die because they can't afford their medications. That's much scarier to me than Japan's economy stalling.

I'd like to see an alternative to oil that is actually practical. It would make more sense for automotive R&D to focus on cars that use gasoline more efficiently.

By the time Obama gets out of office the official US debt will be around $20 trillion. The Federal Reserve is lying through its teeth when it says that it's considering raising interest rates. The Federal Government can't afford to pay more on its debt.
Like I said, when Medicare runs out in 2026 and Social Security in 2033, then what are the elderly and disabled going to do. It seems most likely that the Government is going to throw everyone under the bus.

Most of these jobs are minimum wage, However, Japan doesn't even have 4% unemployment. Besides, I'm more worried about the riots in the next 10 - 12 years when tens of millions of Americans, including myself, lose their Medicare coverage..

Bluesree, all I hear from Japan bashers is how Japan needs to be more like the West and how Japan is in decline.
The US has a "D-" in infrastructure while Japan has a "B", Japan is 6th in education while America is 27th, Japan has $1.5 trillion (2nd) in reserves while America has $145 billion (17th), Japan is how a country SHOULD be, in my opinion.
