What a wonderful sight, but it could be dangerous to aircraft.

Anyone can vote in the USA. Citizens are supposed to be the only voters. But, nobody has to show any proof of who he or she is. Nothing, not even a driver's license. Just register to vote at any table at the local grocery store, then go vote. Some state,s a few hours before the election. A person can register to vote in California based on the driver's license and register in Nevada based on the property tax statement. Oregon may be the only state where a person can vote on-line. There is nothing wrong with requiring a person to show ID.
Mr. Holder is the problem. He needs to resign, but he will not. He will be gone in 2016.

The Chinese have reported that it may have found the ping at 26 S and 101 E. Wonderful news if it is true. The questions being asked are: 1. Why did it take so long for the Chinese to send ships to search for their citizens? 2. Why didn't they release the spy satellite pictures that they used to direct their ships and how did they know where to look without a ping searching device? 3. Who is paying for the search vessels?

"The incoming Chinese leaders are...." What a strange choice of words. "Incoming" is a deadly word, especially for vets. Yes, the incoming leaders would love to visit the islands that are the property of Japan, plant the flag, and bow to the Capitol. Taiwan looks good too. The Chinese may become more capitalistic but that means ownership of property by whatever means is acceptable.

It took long enough to make the decision, but it is the correct one. Both countries should not go even if China apologizes. Was NK and/or Russia invited? Another good reason to not play the little game.

A perfect example of "Money can buy anything," including the weak Virginia legislature. The new name and any name will quickly be forgotten by the students. They will learn it so that they can fill in the line on the map quiz, then forget. The students in Virginia and most other states in the USA know where Iraq and Afghanistan are because Americans learn geography through its wars. One state printing a map in an insignificant textbook is irrelevant in the real world.

Is anyone awake at JT? A second tsunami warning was just issued. Maybe a meter in Shizuoka, more in Hokkaido. Where are the updates? It is 1 PM in Japan. Seriously!

It is time for a new name for Putin's action. It is not a "Cold Military War," which means missile defenses, nukes, and gases. He is waging a "Cold Economic War." He owns the natural gas cow and can take her back to the barn simply by closing the gate on the pipeline. It is a "starve 'em out" of the castle technique used for centuries.

Just like the USA military, China doesn't want to release its spy satellite information. China knows what happened to the plane, but it can't say anything. The real question is why did the plane disappear. It may never be known. The propaganda of demanding more information is just another way of trying to embarrass people.

The death penalty has never been a deterrent to crime. It is the appropriate punishment for taking the life of an innocent person. It is also known as justice for the deceased.

People used to worry about who has a nervous finger on the LAUNCH button. No Europe knows who has a finger on the SHUT OFF button for natural gas. The 21st century slave has just met its master - Russia. Threats, sanctions and negative publicity are worthless. The USSR is back, unfortunately. It is an ECONOMIC COLD WAR. Use it, it is the truth.

No, I am married. Really, if anyone wants to stifle a possible growing economy, tax more. Give the tourist a VAT rebate of up to 50000 yen is a better idea. Oh well, a 1000 economic professors/advisers have 2000 economic opinions.

It has been two weeks, and China finally decides to look for 200 of its 1 billion 200 million people. Thank you for your help. When will the ships arrive to search the area for wreckage? Four more days, thank you.

Good-bye Taiwan, good-bye Balkans, good-bye Okinawa. The USA will not oppose any new landlord because it cannot do anything but rattle the financial swords. However, the USA fortunately has avoided the black hole of wars in other countries while the EU and NATO just wring their hands.

ONE WORD: WHY?
Does Japan really think it will be able to profit from commerce between these two countries? Japan, first! Japan and the USA cannot save the world. China TODAY sent ships to the Indian Ocean to search for its people. It should have done it the day it happened. Japan and the USA cannot afford to pay the bills for the world.

The first shot of the "Cold Economic War" has been witnessed in Crimea. Many believe the Russian invasion was the return to the "Cold War," which really was the "Cold Military War." This time it is about turning off the natural gas or closing down bank transactions. Putin knows exactly how far he can go this week or next month, but the long term goal is to fold the countries back into the USSR.
