Dan Lewis, you beat me to it. However, politicians seem to act more out of convenience than anything else.

TumbleDry, I don't think anyone cares what Obama says. He's a habitual liar, but I guess that's better than a lunatic like Trump.

Autonomous cars are still experimental. Small steps are what are needed. Not to mention that any new technology is always expensive and has bugs and glitches.

Living in fear is exactly what the Jihadists want us to do. Franklin Roosevelt said it best, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."

I would still hold foreign currency over dollars, because America can't escape its population crunch unless it brings in more foreign workers. Where I live its at least 3 elderly for every 1 young person and most of the young are immigrants.

Gokai. Yes, Japan is doing much better than what the "official" reports suggest. As long as people think Japan isn't a threat they'll keep buying Japanese products. It's a brilliant strategy.

I use "Before You Know It" on both my PC and HDX. It's an electronic flashcard program. The mobile version only costs $7.99 a language, with 70+ languages to choose from.

When the East-Asian countries need foreigners to fix their economies I'm sure they'll call you.
Seriously though, the US has less than 100 million full-time workers, the lowest since 1977. However, if anyone criticizes America the ethno-centrists come out and state how perfect and infallible America is.
