In the police reports and media stories there is one consistent them: "Alcohol may have been involved." The final report will be out in a few days, but don't be surprised if he caused his own problems or his friends put him in a dangerous situation.

It is all about testing military equipment and the skills of personnel. There really isn't any concern about civilians. The countries in the market for fighter jets are watching the air show closely. The winner will get the contracts.

Professionals negotiate personal salaries, and the locker room custodians in San Diego earn equal pay. It is "All about me" and "How can I get re-elected?"

Japan and USA need to leave the UN and put the money to a better use such as education. The only benefit the USA has for keeping the UN is employment for NY. NY City certainly loses $$$ because of immunity for something as simple as parking tickets.

This law is absolutely unnecessary and just another attempt by liberals to rally the "female vote." Equal pay for equal work exists for the $100,000/year garbage collector in San Francisco, the teacher in every school district, the vendor climbing the stairs multiple times at a MLB or NFL game, and the person who works at the local convenie at 2:00 AM in a very dangerous part of a city. It is a "feel good" law that is not necessary. If there are salary people at a major IT company in California who feel they are not receiving equal pay, there are two solutions: 1. negotiate or 2. find a new job. The clerks and secretaries in the company have equal pay.

Russia will not survive in Syria exactly as it did not survive in Afghanistan. The USA taxpayer has seen enough cost and sacrificed enough blood, and, therefore, elected President Obama to never send more soldiers to the wars. When Russians come home in bags as they did in Afghanistan, the Russian people will say enough of this nonsense. However, Russia was able to secretly bring home many of its loses. Russia has an opportunity to test its air force in Syrian skies. Let's hope it is not a USA/USSR situation.

How many in this percent prefer government assistance to work because they earn more money on it than off it, have not looked for work or never will look for work, and, therefore, are not counted as unemployed, or were registered for unemployement and now are no longer alive or out of the country? The USA and many other countries would be very happy with the Japanese number for unemployment. What is countable and non countable? The first rule in the statistics class is: "Figures lie and liars figure."

Despite the media reports, he was not received well by the CEOs and others in Seattle. He went on and on about his childhood and difficulties. It was typical "passe" information to the polite listener who really wanted to know what he was going to do about the cyber attacks and freedom to do business in China. It was a rhetorical question because the listener knew the answer. Nothing changes in a dynasty. Then he continued to try to persuade the listeners that some insignificant community in China had more protein to eat and internet connections. Government control of food distribution and internet blockage to information are just more babble. If he really believed in what he is saying, he would give the billions of $$$ he has to the poor in his country and work for no compensation.

First we hear America is a nation of laws, not a nation of men. Then, we hear from Huckabee who supported the marriage license woman that it it is a nation of women. Now we hear from Carson that it is not a nation of Muslims. If John Kennedy had listened to these rhetoric, he never would have been elected president. He was a Catholic, and America was a nation of laws in the 60s. Perry, Huckabee and Carson are no longer significant candidates in the race. Who is next to leave?

Attention Congress: Vote no! Since there is not much chance of that happening, USA loses again. The hostages will stay in prison and the world will say in a few years, "What were they thinking?" Probably, nothing. How can the equivalent of the Pope tell a "representative" government in Iran and people what will and will not happen. He calls the USA "Satan." When one points a finger at another, aren't there three pointing back? VOTE NO, CONGRESS.

Huckabee, et al, are history. He loves to see his name in the news and get the free food and lodging. Now it is time for him to eat his words. He said that this (USA) is a nation of laws, not men. He apparently believes in another issue and meant and believes it is a nation of women. Everyone reading this type of article needs to know that there are many areas of the USA and that opinions vary. It is the reason the war between the states was fought in 1861. She can't be removed unless the state legislature moves on the issue regardless of what the Supreme Court of the USA says. It is the state's right to decide if she should be removed from office. In other states she would be gone for not upholding her pledge to follow the laws of the state and the USA. It is as if the national government says the speed limit is 100km/hour, but the Shizuoka police say it is for all cars except purple cars. The speed limit is unlimited because the "boss" likes purple cars.

The article says, "Signs of an ongoing Russian military buildup in Syria have drawn U.S. concerns..." It once said, "Signs of an ongoing Russian military buildup in Afghanistan have drawn U.S. concerns..." but nobody remember that time. He is a dangerous manipulator.

Everyone age 35 or older needs to take one 81 mg aspirin daily. It prevents numerous health problems from colon cancer to plaque in the blood stream. Recently, it has been found to enhance (turbo charge) the quality of other medications. 500 tabs cost 400 yen in the USA because the cost is not controlled by the government. Japan needs more generic drugs and over the counter OTC products. The lower the cost of non-controlled drugs, the higher the number of patients using them correctly.
