I don't think anyone cares now at this present time except for disgruntled Democrats and liberals. LOL actually more than just democrats want him to be transparent. Trump says he's going to drain the swamp, yet his own financial information is a swap unto itself, which very few can see past the surface. If he's got nothing to fear then he shouldnt have any problems showing his tax returns. Even Warren Buffett whos worth ten times as much as Trump has released his returns for the public to see.

Toyota/Lexus has a long history of Sudden Unintended Acceleration. It is such a shame that Toyota continues blaming the runaway cars on its customers and yet NASA a US government department investigated these acceleration problems themselves and found no fault with Toyotas vehicles, what next you'll be saying that Toyota paid off NASA to keep quiet. LOL

Nihonium can only be synthesized in Japan. so why is that something to be proud of!? If Nihonium was some new element that was essential for the production of say "cold fusion", well then that would be world changing and something to be proud of. as it stands now Nihonium is just a name badge for a manmade element.

Do you like Japanese nihonium? actually I like elements that can have a practical use for the betterment of mankind, and ones that actually exist for a extended period of time and other than a label for a countries name. Do you like Fe Ni Cu

Boeing, for example, would have to play ball if it wants its government contracts renewed,” said one expert who requested anonymity. considering Airbus has a factory in China, that'll put Boeing at a disadvantage for selling planes in China. you know the worlds biggest growth market for planes. Itll be that US companies will only be able to sell their made in US products in the US as they wont be able to compete with the Asian factories. Then Trump is assuming that his 35% tariffs on imported goods won't break WTO rules and that China, EU, wont look at it as unfair trading and impose similar taxes on US companies. Trump is deluded if he thinks he can get congress, many of whom are in big business pockets , to pass his deluded protectionist policies.

EU totters on. The inevitable is simply delayed. nah the EU will be around for a long while yet. UK doesn't stand a chance of free market access while the EU still exists. When or if the EU is dismantled, there wont be any UK manufacturing left that isnt taxpayer subsidised. The Brexit wet dream is just that.

says he hopes it will spark pride and interest in science among Japanese children. an element that only exist for a fraction of a second. I mean Id actually feel a little embarrasssed to call my country after it. Especially since there are so many elements that exist for so much longer, eg bismuth-209 has a half life of 20 billion billion years!

Mexico is not going to pay., sure, they will. so Trumps going to kill Mexico economy by bring the jobs back, then force Mexico to pay for his wall!? LOL your deluded if you think thatll happen. Im sure Mexico will make the US pay for the fight and against the drug cartels by themselves also. Walls wont stop the cartels getting their product into the US, its Mexico soldiers that will, and that wont be free!

FSA is expected to take a ‘soft’ approach and executives that break the rules will not face criminal penalties such as fines - unlike the United States. well its a total waste of time. Insider trading can net the perpetrators 100smillions of yen, the risk of getting caught is far less than the bounty you can get. another one for the Japan logic book.

so if we go by our system Electoral College, yes, he won in a landslide. Bodyslam! the same electoral college that Trump himself said was corrupt! Fact still remains more Americans dont want him as President as those that do. Oh and your map of America that shows all the red, most of its populated with desert , wilderness cattle and wildlife.

lotteries in Japan are a rip off prizes are much less than in the EU/ US and you have to fork out much more for tickets. also add to the fact that under Japanese law its illegal for Japanese nationals to buy lottery ticket overseas, another stupid protectionism measure to keep the sheeple looking inward.

a recount is just following the proper democratic process, If there is any discrepancies it should be investigated. If Trump or Hillary won they should allow the other to have the recount so there is no doubt who won.

The Slav has no claim to these islands and only seized them through force and comically cowardly opportunism. It's understandable people are anti-Russian The Soviets lost 20million people fighting the Germans and no other country sacrificed more during WW2. Most definitely they claimed those islands out of opportunism, but Russians / Soviets were far from cowardly or comical! please keep you ignorant insults to yourself. You may want to study a bit more about WW2 history , it was far bigger than just the Pacific war. Oh and the Pacific war wasn't started by the attack on pearl harbor, it was started by the 1937 cowardly invasion of China by the IJA!

and everyone forgets that the people of Futenma have the right to expect a promise made over 20 years ago be kept, the promise was to relocate Futenma , there was never any agreement to have the bases moved totally from Okinawa. It the Okinawan governments that continually try to change the requirements of the agreements that are causing all the delays.
Until the work at Nago base is completed the Futenma base will remain. If you dont like it move out of Okinawa or run for office in Tokyo and get things changed, good luck.

Does it make it illegal by international law to modify or destroy these heritage assets? No its just a publicity tool to promote tourism, which as we know Japan is desperate for. The only problem is unless your into temples , Japan gets really boring after about a week of visiting.

so basically giving away money that the US doesn't have, wait for the rest to start lining up for the same treatment.
US like Japan has lost millions of jobs to cheaper Asian countries, mostly China. only way Trump is going to make a considerable dent in the damage done is put high tariffs on imported goods But that runs the risk of WTO involvement and most probably a trade war with China. US big business cant afford to lose the foothold in China market which is growing must faster and has more opportunities than the US in the coming years. China wont hesitate to apply counter tariffs on US businesses should congress decide to go down that path.
