Posted in: Pentagon shifting $1.5 billion to border wall construction See in context

Trump said Mexico would pay for the wall. That is documented fact.

So many sad comments. Feeding starving people is not an economic or political transaction. It is an act of compassion.

This is a ridiculous, Rube Goldberg solution.

Real trees are the answer.

What world we live in when doing things the hard and unnecessary way is rewarded.

Far too many people believe these myths.

Posted in: How China is replacing America as Asia's military titan See in context

China has been adopting U.S. military philosophy, strategy and tactics for the last 15 years.

Their training, teaching and military science has been based on the U.S. military science for that long. Think about that for a minute.

I first learned of this reading Air Force Magazine, which is the official magazine of and by, the U.S. Air Force. This was their analysis with no sugar coating. And that was ten years ago.

Be very afraid of China. They are not playing a game.

Posted in: Competition for talent forces Japanese firms to revamp recruiting process See in context

This coming on the heals of another "survey" stating that firms are not looking at hiring full time staff, outside of women and foreigners.

The mixed messages they are sending are strange. Far too many contradictions.

Posted in: Japanese firms less willing to increase graduate intake in FY2020 See in context

The contradictions are amazing. Companies are suffering labor shortages yet say they won't hire as many graduates, yet are trying very hard to increase their hiring of foreign workers.

It is obvious they want cheaper employees, but there is an old saying: "It is good to save money in business, but you can save yourself right out of business."

There is another old saying: "You get what you pay for." Part time pay and hours well buy you part time work and part time attitudes.

Agreed, cla68. The rise of nationalism around the world is very scary. History shows this never ends well.

Posted in: With a piece of paper, Trump called on Kim to hand over nuclear weapons See in context

Kim is NOT going to disarm. Kim is far smarter than Trump ever was or will be. Trump is being played by Kim and being played hard.

Posted in: Takata air bags claim another life after Arizona crash See in context

It's unfortunate that people chose to ignore the recall notices.

It is not a matter of ignoring the recall, but that there is not enough replacement units. There is a backlog of years to get a replacement.

Posted in: Trump declares victory now but legal perils far from over See in context

Exactly Crazy Joe. Until the full report is made public, we really DO NOT KNOW what it says.

And remember, Barr's summary also says Trump was NOT exonerated. Not guilty but not exonerated? What is really going on?
