    Puerto Rico vs. USA would be interesting because PR is a US territory populated by American citizens. America beats America to win the WBC?

    Her desk drawer, secured with a piece of ribbon, will be used for storing the hugely classified details about...

    international leaders' golf scores from Mar a Loco, for use in future blackmail schemes. That could be why Abe wouldn't report who was leading after his eighteen holes with Trump, and German PM Merkel refused to play at all.

    'With an all dirt infield, it's typical of many small town baseball stadiums in Japan'

    Truth be told, there are only three American style grassy infield ball parks aywhere in Japan. One is Yokohama stadium, maybe because it doubles as a soccer field. Another is in Kobe but not Tigers' Koshien. The third I need to go reread.

    Anyway, good luck Manny! The grueling part of playing in a four team indy league will be the opressive heat and humidity of late summer. If Manny lasts through that, we'll know that he has really taken a liking to Japan.

    Could be the stricter laws and regular arrests (about 1000 per year reportedly) are having the intended effect. Doubt this low profile police crack down will let up soon because the ongoing sporadic violence between splintering factions of formerly united gangs.

    Some of the sharpest blows have been from tiny upstart political parties, e.g. Taro Yamamoto of the year old Liberal Party calling the Osaka kindergarten issue "Ak-heed" to get the first couple's goat.

    Her name is Ivanka Trump? Is her pre-existing fashion brand the only reason she isn't Ivanka Kushner?

    (Just a joke, lighten up everyone.)

    A Turkish furniture factory, eh? That's where all these tools came from.

    Let's use some of that 50 bilion DoD budget hike to pay these retired generals a decent pension so they don't have to go all foreign agent on us to make ends meet, m'kay?

    The Latin American countries are the ones whose teams are packed with top talent. Consider the killer lineup of near-anarchic Venezuela: Jose Altuve, Miguel Cabrera, Alcides Escobar, Felix Hernandez, etc. (Listed in nytimes) Pitchers are at the worst risk of injury, which explains why the US pitching staff doesn't feature any 2016 All Stars. Israel as a dark horse is an interesting start to the tourney. Can't wait to see the eventual champs.

    Russia's ambassador also met with Trump's son in law Jared and got to sit in on the joint address earlier this week, reports ABC News. Maybe some of Trump's gesturing was for his benefit? Might as well grant him a US passport with a cushy gonvernment job and be done with it.

    Secretive Sessions held a secret session with the Russians? His remaining tenure is going to be a short session, but he may try for a comeback during an economic downturn.

    Hoo boy Thunderbird, I want to know where the Kansas City shooter of the Garmin Corp. Indian engineers fits into your "angry sheep... harassing, stalking and beating people" theory. A white military vet who was showing how to "value and respect different opinions" of two friends minding their own business in a public bar? Was he spurred on by the MSM of all absurd things? Trump finally talked about it, so now you are allowed to give us a few sentences.

    Blame the MSM all you want, but they are not the reason Republicans like Raul Labrador will never support the tax credit health credit idea. Until the GOP officials iron out their own differences, any worries about Dems and the media are just distractions.

    Almost coughed up a lung when Trump shed a tear for the poor overregulated coal mines.

    @dango bong, by accomplishments, do you mean signing executive orders with an 'electric pen' (another knee slapper phrase from Trump)?

    Nutty performance art. One minute reading the teleprompters line about 'the artificially high price of DRUGS' (Trump's emphasis), then stopping to do an Elvis style finger pointy thing to someone in the audience without any explanation. Who was he signalling to that is so concerned about high drug prices? Don't all these congresspeople already get the best taxpayer provided health care?

    Or the little aside about how he refused an offer to ride one of the five hogs that Harley Davidson parked on his lawn. Way to promote US products by refusing to set his butt on one. And he wants customers outside the US to spend their life savings on a Harley why exactly?

    @kibousha, teach the kids to avoid investment scams so they can lecture mom not to go to these free seminars run by dad's company? Something is backwards in this equation.

    Posted in: Many people think investing is risky, but those risks can be eased if you diversify your investments or invest multiple times rather than all at once. I hope people will start thinking immediately about how to prepare for their future.

    Each decade could have it's own word. Starting in 2020: Hep Japan, with a yurukyara named Captain Ee-yo wearing a beret, leather jacket with the long fringes, and clutching a long cigarette holder. Damn, I need to copyright this now!

    Any guesses about what time the wedding will start? (Hint: 3600 seconds after noon, say the band's name a few times fast until you get it)

    They are kind of right, in as much as being good at Twitter and blathering half cooked notions to adoring crowds are skills that are worth almost nothing, which is what Trump insists he's getting paid for the next four years (nevermind the billion dollar security tab). Somehow, I have a hard time believing a career businessman wants to work this hard for nothing, but oh well.
