    After all the trouble Afghanistan caused, what with bringing down the twin towers and all the world wide terrorism, they want handouts already?

    The ingrates!

    Ringo Starr turns 72 in Nashville

    I think you'll probably find that he's turned 72 in other places as well.

    I'm sure the IMF knows much more about economics than I do, it's what they do with that knowledge that worries me.

    I wonder why they can't hand over Futenma and Kadena especially.

    Because the Okinawans don't want that to happen.

    Which Okinawans are you talking about?

    There are a sufficiently large number of Okinawans that want the bases off this island to warrant a referendum so that we can REALLY find out.

    The US has many times insisted on new bases outside population centers, yet the people refused to allow it.

    What on Earth are you talking about?

    The Okinawans I know, many of whom attend the anti-base and anti-Osprey demonstrations want the US military off this island.

    The IMF lauds Japan's (Noddy Noda's) plan to raise consumption tax?

    Now I KNOW there's something wrong with it!

    I have looked into Scientology and do not dislike it. Why do people dislike it so much?

    I have the same question timtak.

    It seems to me that whenever the word gets mentioned, people reprint the stuff negative stuff that someone else wrote and he got it off of someone else and so on.

    And I notice a similarity with the anti-Scientology crew. Same old lines. Stuff is twisted:

    "Hubbard was a science fiction writer."

    Not really. Well he did write SOME science fiction. Louis Pasteur rode a bicycle. That doesn't make him a cyclist.

    Hubbard was a writer certainly. And he was a philosopher.

    Someone said that they had heard that a friend told them that at a party, he had said that he would make more money starting a religion than writing. There's no proof of this. Who knows? If he said it, who knows what context it was in. If you take time to read the Dianetics book and Science of Survival, you KNOW that isn't where he's coming from.

    When this came up about Tom Cruise, I dug some of Hubbard's books out of a cupboard and have been rereading them recently. His books are interesting.

    Fadamor - there you go, it's in the dictionary.

    press-up: British term for pushup.

    pushup: an exercise in which a person lies facing the floor and, keeping their back straight, raises their body by pressing down on their hands.

    Just googled it.

    Eric Sykes and Jimmie Edwards did ONE SUMMER SHOW in Bulawayo, Rhodesia.

    Someone who was there at the time wrote:

    I was in the Rhodesian Army, during the sanctions period, and Eric, with Jimmy Edwards, decided to visit the country, with their show, I think called "Big bad Mouse". I was privileged to see them at a real old-world theatre in Bulawayo, and the 2 of them kept us amused for many hours, scripted and unscripted. What a good night. Real gentlemen, both of them, old-school entertainers.

    As far as I know for the other 88 years and 354 days of his life, or whatever it was, he wasn't in Rhodesia.

    Eric Sykes was a wonderful comedian and scriptwriter.

    If lucabrasi and albaleo wish to sling muck at a lovable man who just passed away, I suggest they choose somewhere else to do it.

    Just to add to the last.

    There has to be something that the US is getting out of all this.

    I can't believe they are doing it out of the goodness of their floppy, sentimental hearts.

    >Can anyone give any reasons why these U.S. bases, especially the Marines' Futenma training air station and training ranges in central and northern Okinawa, must be sustained indefinitely?

    There isn't one. At least not one that the US government and the Japanese government are willing to put out in the open.

    When you ask this question, you just get a regurgitation of the PR lines that the military et al. have been fed.

    "It's because the Tokyo government requests it."

    "Okinawa would be in abject poverty if we left."

    "We stand for freedom and democracy in the world."

    "Someone has to defend Japan, Japan is not capable of doing it themselves."

    "The environment is SO DANGEROUS, with North Korea's rockets poised at Japan and China just waiting for the US cavalry to leave so that they can send in their hordes of yellow peril."

    All of which amount to little more than bovine excreta.

    I wonder why they can't hand over Futenma and Kadena especially.

    I have an idea there is a reason.

    Any ideas?

    "press-ups, push ups," don't Americans use dictionaries?

    albaleo - your post is off topic and out of place.

    The topic is Eric Sykes, who recently passed away. If you wish to discuss Rhodesia/Zimbabwe, please find an appropriate forum to vent your political spleen.

    Eric Sykes was an important part of my life. I was overjoyed to see him in a recent Harry Potter movie. I for one do not wish to see his name tarnished.

    "Why? Because why would we discuss the presence of the head of the Russian government on Russian territory," Medvedev demanded.

    Exactly.

    What's to discuss?

    If this kind of thing is going to send "Noddy" Noda into a hissy fit, he's not going to last much longer as a PM.

    It is nobody's business who someone else has sex with, if it's consensual.

    You are right, Maria.

    Where on Earth did this idea come from that Tom Cruise was gay?

    As soon as his or Travolta's name comes up we get hit with all this crap about their being gay and the regurgitated crap about Scientology, which, as far as I can see is just a rehash of the same old negative tripe they always dish out when Scientology comes up.

    My take on it is that Katie is a gold digger who doesn't belong anywhere near movies.

    As someone posted here, she knew full well that he was into Scientology when she met and dated him.

    He hasn't changed.

    She has.

    I think he's well rid of her.
