YES those cameras you see everywhere can do facial ID so they always know who you are and where you are. It's an ez database search to find criminals

Posted in: Hagerty defends U.S. trade policies, says they are not protectionist See in context

I'm amazed how the media is so clueless about the trade changes. It's not about tariffs but about equal access to each others markets. I noticed on 10 day vaction in Japan I only saw 2 American autos the whole time.I was looking hard and I know my cars. I now many in Japan, China and other Asian nations want USA product but taxed so high they can't afford to buy. The great giveaway of American markets is over ! Time for competition and 2 way free trade

I spent 10 days in Japan and only saw 2 USA made vehicles. This is fair and equal trade ? I think close to half the vehicles in USA are Japanese.

An incentive to NOT BUY and will damage economy more. They start small and grow fast. Many USA states now near the 10% mark sales tax NY and CA. Govts need to consider spending as citizens do with more concern for value.

Posted in: Are more doors opening to tattooed visitors? See in context

Tatts are big fashion in USA now. Some are works of art and some mark a very important time or accomplishment in life. Its interesting to go to a water park in USA and see the changes in fashionable tattoos.

We are American and proud to be indiviual and thats quite differnt than Japan to be part of the fold.

Personally I don't have one or would have one but I support your right to wear one. MAGA

A very important announcement as those who Japan transgressed against are now future leaders of the world. While not spoken, ancestors are remembered and honored by all.

Einstein said "Its all relative"

So who is fake news and who is not ? Much what is sold as news is simply paid for propaganda or advertising. So who is Twitter to be the sole judge ?

You should reseach news that unsettles you as it just might be true.

NATO was designed to stop European countries from waring with each other, But now they are one country EU. So does this make NATO obsolete ?

Posted in: NATO leaders fear Trump crisis at key summit See in context

Once they created the EU they no longer needed a NATO. The biggest danger was that one nation who seemed to be aggressive previous 2 wars, Germany. But now Germany too over Europe using money and debt this time so no need for NATO anymore. I hope Trump pulls out totally.
