Posted in: Bush greeted by demonstrations in South Korea See in context

SezWho2 at 08:59 AM JST - 6th August

I rather wish our President would focus his energy on keeping the US a >free democracy. As for turning Asia into a free democracy, I suspect you >may be partially right about that. After all, he is in South Korea to >fight for the democratic rights of South Koreans to buy our beef whether >they want to or not.

I rather wish people would stop accepting the views of minorities as the views of the majority. If you bothered to read the article you would find that there were more people supporting Bush than there were protesters. Not that that matters, since there are 49million Koreans. To suggest that the views of 20,000 protestors are the views of the other 99.96% is just balmy.

Concerning democracy, it is not the President's job to keep the US a free democracy, but the citizens/voters. Concerning trade, the Koreans enjoy little in the way of export restrictions, but themselves employ many import restrictions. Is it not reasonable for countries to try to achieve a more balanced international trade solution? US beef is tasty!!

Posted in: Nissan cars to push back when drivers floor it See in context

Silly idea. I like instantaneous fuel indications as I can modify my driving behavior to get best fuel economy, but when the car starts working against me, then it's not a car I want. It could also be very dangerous, as a driver may need to accelerate and the car wants the driver to reduce the rate of acceleration, so the driver reacts and pushes harder, then the car backs off fighting the driver, but now the pedal is to the metal, and the car is accelerating faster than was wanted.

No

Its not required for any country to be protecting, or staying in another >country.

But its not going to change anytime soon.

We'll see if you feel the same way the next time the North Koreans start firing missiles or snatch a few Japanese. Disputes arise easily and when national pride is involved, escalate easily. Having a deterrent helps both sides from going too far.

Japan is still very much a controlled country. The media runs the government line. Just look at the heavy handedness of police recently during the summit. Disagreement is not liked. So maybe the bases in Japan are for others safety as well.....................

Posted in: Racial politics hit Obama-McCain campaign See in context

skipthesong at 09:17 AM JST - 1st August

Obama is not playing race politics, he is playing politics and yes McC >would do anything to win, so would barrack, Hillary, Bush, and even me >in 2012, if I'm old enough. That's what politicians do.

So obviously integrity is not important to you. I can see why US politics is so full of cretins and liars, because they are accepted by the people.

His celebrity status is NOT his fault.

If it were not orchestrated then that would be true. Are you honestly saying you believe there is no orchestration, or that Obama is naive to it?

While I didn't fancy the lyrics of one, "paint the white house black - a >rip from old Funkadelic, I would say let's paint it at least a different >color, that white house is getting to be an eyesore.

So when a building represets something you don't like it should be changed? So much for historic sights in the US.

JeromeInJapan at 09:50 AM JST - 1st August

He was merely stating the truth. Some people are scared to make a change >and they race factor is certainly and issue to some voters. He's just >telling it like it is. I think we do need a change an McCain to be is >going to be another Bush. McCain can play the age card if he wants...

Change, funny how many people keep saying change. What change? What is new? Obama cannot admit that Iraq is now a better place for Iraqi's and that Bush was correct. Obama tried to blame the republicans for a global slow down. Obama claims change but all he offers is flip flopping on his policies. Face up to it, he is a fraud. I would dearly love to see a black president and a woman president, Democratic or Republican, but only when said person is one of integrity. And no I do not believe that Bush fits the mould, but McCain, though I think he is weak, has more integrity than 10 Obama's.

Posted in: Obama addresses 200,000 in Berlin with message of unity for world's people See in context

buddha4brains I did not suggest Obama is popular because he is black. You said that. I suggested that the reasoning of some of the media is in fact just as racist as disliking someone because they look a certain way. I have no issue with the color of Obama's skin. I have an issue with people who like the looks and don't listen to the words. I have an issue with someone who keeps saying Change and New and yet sprouts the same old policies and in fact flip flops on policies on a daily basis. I have an issue with someone who has little experience pretending to know everything and have all the answer. Even the free democratic press in the US is getting tired the BS and starting to point out that for example, his policies on Iraq and Afghanistan are crap. And I am amazed that people can accept his lies and think he will fix their sorry lives. How could you or anyone else be a member of a racist church and not know that it was a racist church? How could you put crap on your grandmother, who was about the only person in the world to stand by you? I would like Obama to be what most seem to think he is. He could be black, white, red, pink or blue, I don't care, as long as he has integrity and speaks with intelligence. I do not see any of that. Did any catch his stutter speech when asked a question he had not prepared for? Funny. As for McCain he is like an old lady. No fire and no soul. Maybe the US needs to get another actor president, or maybe that is already the plan..............

The crowds screamed and hollered The crowd was enormous including all the top news anchors.

I can see that people like Obama for his abilities............ :) :) :) Many say that if he is elected it is the end of racism. But that is tripe. If he is elected it is because of racism, be it in reverse. But racism non the less. What happened to all people being equal. Flip flop flip flop.

I am amazed at the stupidity of people. Obama is a liar and a fake. He goes to a church for 10 years and then claims to not know the racist jibe the preacher sprouts. He is dishonest and will not acknowledge that the US surge has worked and he will not give credit where it is due. His position changes from speech to speech. He claims change and new but he offers nothing new. People look at him and like him then pay no attention to the dribble he comes out with. Wake up and open your eyes. This guy has no experience and is incompetent.

Posted in: U.S. to send more troops to Afghanistan See in context

What is the joke are countries that are afraid to send in troops to help. Leaders who are too afraid of a backlash to make hard decisions. There are many more that I could mention. The Taliban were/are a bunch of machine gun wielding drug dealers/terrorists, who terrorised the Afghans.

Posted in: Americans cool to Michelle Obama, don't know Cindy McCain See in context

And not many people know that she is very wealthy, and double the business he father left her. Also that she admitted she had a drug problem and is now straight. Michelle Obama is a figure head for the two faced. Enjoy the benefits of being an American but ashamed of America at the same time. In short a Democrat......... :)

Posted in: Convenience stores oppose calls for shorter business hours See in context

If people stopped breathing that would help reduce greenhouse gas emissions :) Maybe they ( prefectures )should suggest that. 20% may not sound like a large amount of business to loose, but when you are operating on very small margins it could be the difference between being in business and out of business. Then there would not be any convenience stores and that would cause people to have to drive to big supermarkets, as lets face it you have to travel you will buy for more than one day and then you will have to carry the goods by Taxi or car.
