Human problems are with us all. Don't really care about him and nothing about showering a few with unimaginable fortune is going to change, most people like fantasies of themselves being so fortunate. Anyway, whatever...

Ridiculous political party, politician and comments. Nothing will change as a result of this fools comments and grievances about an injustice that never suffered. Speak on my friend, we all need to know that people with your thoughts are with us.

@Educator60

I imagine people resolve the 'address' issue in as many ways as we can imagine. There are services that receive snail mail, scan it and then forward it as a PDF. Some have friends, relatives, some use general delivery, there's lot's of options.

There is a difference between an address and residence. They are not always one and the same.

Your assumption that the only way to secure large sums of money is by asking others for a handout is false.

I'm not certain what fixed residence means. I provide an address that in many situtions is required. As far as 'needing stuff', it's true but it's also OK to have a very short term relationship with it. I have a backpack, that's it. Banking, investing, accommodations, etc is all done on my phone. LOL, life is good.

I don't work but I've been traveling around the world for the last three years and leave before visa expiration, 90, 60 or 30 days usually. I interact with other Nomads, who work and it's ridiculous to suggest that they are not 'paying' into the system. These people are bringing money into countries and they do not require education, retirement, elderly care etc. They pay taxes with every purchase and rarely us the medical system.

I get it, heels are stupid. Neckties are foolish as well. But I have to admit, I spent my professional life in San Jose, Santa Clara, Seattle and San Francisco. These places are full of 'bad manners'. Strange to think that Microsoft, Apple, Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, Twitter, etc. were are built by people who everyday showed nothing but rudeness toward you kniw, THE WHOLE WORLD!

Stupid, just stupid...

It used to bother me that 'women' would say things like, ''good for you'' or "more men should babysit''.

If we want to allow men to parent, then let them parent. I never once babysit my children, I raised them.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. seek to sign 'very big' trade deal in September See in context

Crazy... the Japanese consumer will see 'zero' benefits from an open market. This seems to be a move to bring down the imbalance in trade, nothing else. Trumps farmers will be happy, the politics will rejoice about the lowering and that's it on the American side. As for Japan, the wealthy will be protected and sales of Toyota's, and other consumer crap will continue. The tax payers will buy the corn or other food items that will 'never' be brought to market which will keep food prices and profit margins criminally high.

You want to buy a Japanese product cheap, buy it anywhere but Japan. This I'm afraid is an absolute fact.

@Spitfire

Agree. The closed markets of Japan has doomed it into an irrelevant economy in the world market. It's 100% reliant on others' buying it's products, it's consumers are tapped out and it's potential for growth is nil.

Mr. President, please put a 25% tariff on all imports from Japan immediately.

@ Ganbare Japan!

Supply and demand economics assumes a natural growth in supply to meet demand in order to bring down cost. Japan has rigged the hotel and housing supply chain to favor the status quo and once again, the consumer will suffer.

It's cool, Japanese can live with inflated prices all they want but supply and demand is 'never' the reason for high cost for 'anything' in Japan, it's just not.

Always seems to turn into a 'trump' bad, 'obama' good 'shout out'.

Yawn...

Warren is White, look at the photo. She's a white lady who had a career in academia where she might have assumed that being Native American gave her an advantage via some sort of affirmative action or she was uninformed of the advantages she could have recieved by checking the Native American box. She has handled this situation horribly.

Trump is a reckless buffoon, a conspiratorial racist moron, whose weird comments should be disregarded by sensible people.

Does this sum it up?

@juminRhee

I grew up hearing about that 'good' Indian hair. LOL, thank you for your comments. You're clearly thoughtfull and have knowledge about 'race' and what it is in America.

In many ways, Trump's core support is people who have been racially disadvantaged as well. As a boy, I also heard the term 'White Trash' often or more specifically, 'poor white trash'.

Being disenfranchised from a political and economic system while suffering extream violence from the ruling class is the story of many Americans.

As a human, do I blame her for seeking advantages, maybe not. But man, I wish my country could produce better people to run for President.

Norman Goodman, 'Intent' is sometimes more telling about a persons character, than proving if they benefited from thier actions.

I assume you are not American based on your comments about race. Ignorance aside, in the USA skin color is everything, that's why lighted skinned Black people have in my country's history attempted to 'pass' as white.

She and 'Harvard' both felt an advantage to her being a minority and particularly, a Native American. It created an false impression of inclusion. Inclusion into a system that has excluded people based on 'race'. In America, she a White woman, it's that simple.
