    The $1000 fine would be paid by whom? The passenger. It would just raise the airport use fee for every plane, and therefore, the price of the ticket. Or, is someone suggesting it be taken out of the TSA employees' hourly wage? There are rules for carry on that are not being followed by the airlines. The airlines say the TSA should not let the passengers drag extra carry on through security. There is never more truth here when one says, "When you point a finger at someone, there are three fingers pointing back at you."

    TSA will not consider alternatives to the present system. 1. Enforce the rule of ONE carry on that has wheels and one laptop/purse bag. At the present time, passengers (usually business people in black suits) have one carry on that has wheels, then one bag attached to it, and one laptop bag or tourists with two very large backpacks and a laptop bag. 2. Establish a line for one backpack ( no wheels) and one laptop bag. Those who choose #2 go through faster and do have to wait for #1 people. 3. FREE Pre-check for a passenger who has traveled to Japan 6 time to be an ALT in a junior high school and has been searched 5 times on both sides of the ocean, not to mention casual travel in the USA. Also, finger printed and background checked 4 times in the last 5 years for employment in the USA (by the way, this is an American born citizen). What it the problem? "I am from the government, and I am here to help you."

    Build and island, and they will come. Also, build an island, and they will leave. The USA military needs it own home offshore. The economic stimulus in building will be greatly appreciate. No Japanese supply service jobs will be lost. Best of all, no off base passes.

    Of course he has been replaced, but not stopped. Meanwhile, Pakistan complains that the USA military is killing "citizens" in its country.

    Insane. Is the coffin a shoe box? By the way Sense, USA citizens don't even know who he was. Short term memory? Probably, the contributors to this page understand or remember him, but not the average USA citizen. They may, just may, remember his wife for all the shoes she owned when he was deposed.

    Meanwhile, Pakistan complains that the USA military's drone strike killed a leader. The government officials in all these countries want attention and money. Just leave and let it happen.

    For how many years have people been asking for the USA military to get out of Okinawa? Just leave by building an island a la chinese method nearby.

    Don't feel relieved by these failures. The USA had plenty of them, and they were broadcast on the major networks. Everything take time to perfect, unfortunately, the people responsible for the perfection may suddenly disappear until the people who can perfect a launch do it.

    This program is a real black hole. How about spending money in the north and south to rescue housing, etc. There is never a shortage of money, it is just a matter of priorities. The priorities seem to be something other than the survival of the common people who pay the taxes.

    Xi needs to pay more attention to the "boy" in NK. The military developments for missile launch from submarines, etc are progressing very quickly. What is the problem? China isn't selling the technology to NK, so it doesn't have any financial benefit. and it can suffer the results when NK hoards "run for the border." Finally, it is important to realize that NK is not going to wage a 1950 "run for the border" war. It is cyber and air and naval attacks.

    "Desperate times call for desperate measures." Hippocrates, and not Cruz. has it correctly. An apology goes to everyone who has watched the USA presidential nomination process. It is the result of the USA Civil War. Slavery was not the cause of the war. States Rights was the reason, and the result still exists in many ways. The nomination and primary election is the first step. The second step is the Electoral College. NO president is directly elected by the USA people. Cruz has very little chance of being elected, but it is an interesting game to watch.

    Japan Today reports, "The estimated number of foreign visitors to Japan in March hit 2,009,500, the highest for a single month, with popular cherry blossom viewing season attracting tourists from abroad, the Japan National Tourism Organization said Wednesday." What are the plans if there are problems where these people need as much help as the citizens?

    Expect long lines that don't move forward. People will now buy a bowl and stay for hours to use their electronic equipment.. This decision will be reversed if customers will complain often and strongly.

    Another good reason to keep the death penalty for such actions.

    One honest person. Now let's see what Poor Little Putie and Xi have to say. Is it "Not me" again?

    Poor little Putie. The "Not me" ghost did this to me sponsored by foreign countries. Who ate the desert, "Not Me." Still no word from Xi family because of the shutdown on the internet. Freedom of speech is dangerous and China has proven it. It doesn't matter if the list was "edited." It is the proof that Putin and Xi were involved that the world needs to see. "Show me the money" has never been more significant.

    What was Xi's response to the accusation about his family's involvement? "Silence the internet." Problem solved.

    It was suggested several years ago on this page that Okinawa become the Las Vegas/Hawaii of Asia. SK has several casino resorts that are more "fair weather" resorts. A recent article on JT reported on the increase in tourism in Japan and SK. It is especially high for Japan now and in the future because tourist either want to beat the Olympics flood or just come to the Olympics. What happens after the games are done? A stable tourist based economy rather than a military based economy will have a tremendous financial benefit.

    It is interesting that the first country to DELETE access to the papers was CHINA. For English learners, "The first shoe has been dropped, now we wait for the second." Xi, Castros, Putin's "friends" are in for a big surprise. Stay tuned.

    TOEFL is a waste of money and a false predictor of success. Teachers teach the way they are taught; ergo, teacher test the way they were tested. How can a Japanese citizen who tested low on these antiquated tests move to the USA in 2008, enter a California community college, pass all the courses and California standardized test, and become a registered nurse? The same person GRADUATED from a junior college in Japan as junior high school librarian. She could not communicate well in English, but fortunately could read English. Japan is in the 1950 when it comes to teaching English. Teachers need to take a trip to California, enjoy the environment, and visit as many high schools as possible. Otherwise, the teachers will never improve and the complaints will never be resolved.
