@paulinusa You beat me to it! It is truly about more revenue than anything else. A Moron on a bike is a moron plates or not.

We know how these things turn out. Unless people get involved (calling the police) or the security is positioned every few meters it is a noble gesture at best. I do hope it helps.

That is sad and all, but you would think you can hear the thing coming. Roller coasters aren't exactly quiet.

Yes, but perhaps he was pretty high up on the rails and simply getting out of the way was not an immediate option. A very tragic accident.

It is a sad thing that happens too often. Even a quick wave is better than to not ever acknowledge your neighbors. Look out for one another is the point.

A true hero for me. I'm glad to see good things being said of him on JT.

I remember when I was young that she was the funny scary lady. She brought me many great laughs and great memories. A true comic is gone. She will be missed.

@ojiiu812badboy: Well said my friend. So many 'blanket' statements and NONE of it based on any facts. The days of sweep it and run are long gone. If you screw up you will and should be served up to face the music. This whole thing reeks of sales and fire up the anti crowd. This case must be pretty weak even for the land of hold 'em for 23 days without charges.

An inebriated soldier is a dangerous soldier, since they severely lack proper judgement with anything they do afterwards.

Replace soldier with person and your statement would hold water.

They are trained in combat and trained how to hurt and kill, they lack pyhscological support to deal with what they do see and go through, and the military has no qualms about letting these often loose units wander amongst innocent civillians while they very often are on the verge of going off.

You may excel in rthe area that your name implies but you have no expertise or training whatsoever in the area of psycology or how the military deals with it. A whole lot of assuming on your part. If THIS individual is guilty then THIS individual will pay dearly.

Thanks for the update CrazyJoe. I simply wanted to bring light to the way it is stated. Leaves one to wonder. I will say again that if he is guilty he will pay for his stupidity.

As they rightly should.

I'm not going there with you. If this individual is guilty then the law will do what they do.

Is he military or civilian? Looks like someone is trying to fire up the anti military crowd.

Remember that the military does not fly for profit. An aircraft can and will be grounded for the slightest malfunction or defect after numerous inspections are carried out. Despite the best laid plans things can still go wrong WHOEVER or whatever you represent.

I pesonally know him as I worked directly for him a few years back. He rose to this level because he has a distinguished career and is an outstanding individual. Always fair and ears wide open when you have something to say.

Imagine if (Japan) had a military base in (Southern California) and flew these same (Ospreys) over crowded residential areas, what do you think the Local's would say?

What job opportunities are there and is speaking Japanese a requirement?

Is your insurance up to date?

Can't hear the planes for all the car noise.

Posted in: Rodney King, key figure in 1992 LA riots, found dead in swimming pool See in context

Got to LA a few weeks after the riots and saw the devastation. On one corner a man was selling T-shirts that said "Lets treat or LAPD Like Kings". At that time and for those officers can't think of a better statement. He had his share of problems but he never stopped trying to improve himself and that is a lot more than can be said about a lot of people out there. Peace to you Rodney..........

Posted in: Calls made for bicycles to have number plates See in context

Now there’s an idea I think I like! Let’s put a plate on every bike! Like most things here we’ll make it hard Hmmm while we’re at it a license card! Two year inspections and insurance to boot In the first few years we’ll have plenty of loot! The money will show on a public docket SSHHH….don’t tell ‘em we lined our pockets! Within a few years they’ll accept the change Now let’s get busy with the rearrange An increase is costs and an increase in fees Lot’s more paper so cut down more trees! Next we will read that there is more talk I wonder how much we can charge them to walk?

I always thought a bucket of soda was a bit much but as stated by others the 'gubment' needs to stay out of personal choices that don't directly affect others. Standby.....the breathing tax is next.

The Chinese are lying, he will not be allowed to leave. Soon this will be out of the News and when that happens....

No more speculative posting.......I hope.

Posted in: Chinese activist calls his situation dangerous See in context

I think the embassy staff just wanted to get rid of him and went along with the Chinese deception since it was in their best interests

And there lies the problem Yuri.......YOU think but do you KNOW this for sure? So anyone who feels the need should be spirited away from China? I feel for those in need but there was NOTHING 'cold hearted' about this. His choices where his alone.

Posted in: Chinese activist calls his situation dangerous See in context

So spare me your excuses, the current government has embarrassed itself in the eyes of the world. My guy a wounded combat vet from Iraqi agrees with me on this fact. I do not see the government of George Bush caving in like this.

Yuri, where is the excuse? It is a fact that he left the embassy to be with his family. As stated in another post they may have gotten him out but not his family.

To the Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, you keep allowing yourself to be duped by others.

And how was she duped? Please stick to what is factual and keep the anti US rants out of this. I agree that the US is sometimes sticking its nose where it doesn't belong but in this case he had a choice to either wait out a very long stay in the embassy or be with his family. He chose his family. Can't have it both ways Yuri.

Great band, and a great song. It got me interested in Austrailia and years later I experienced vegimite. Definately an aquried taste! Rest easy. I know I will remember him and the song for the great memories of that time.

tmarie: we both agree that there is nastiness from both sides. All we can do is keep dialog open and hope that that magical day comes when we are seen and judged as individuals and not dropped into someones mold. Trust me, I have dealt with some EXTREME types on my side of the spectrum and was looked upon as a 'traitor' because I wouldn't submit to their twisted logic. They come from ALL walks of life and are relentless in their pursuit to persuade others into their madness. When not being harmed directly by any of them they are invisible as far as I'm concerned.

I stand corrected. I did say 'whites' in a previous post but only in response to another poster. Must check back through before posting!

Posted in: Whatever happened to 'post-racial' America? See in context

tmarie: Don't know what got you fired up but we are both entitled to our beliefs and experiences and I respect yours. It would seem that you are centering this on whites. In fact, this post is the first time that I said 'whites'. I will state again that I could care less what a persons race is as long as he or she is respectful of others. Why is it that I can't be happy to see what many thought would never happen? America moved a barely perceptible distance forward if only for a moment. My statements stand regardless of what anyone else thinks. One of the few things that can't be taken from anyone on either side of this........your thoughts are yours and with civil discussion we may come to a consensus.

TigermothII: Where I lived it was 'code green' when we walked in. They even did zone defence'! If the reason behind it wasn't so serious it could be funny. The language thing was/is a form of identity that I did NOT identify with. I was raised in the DoD system and we learned really quick that either you got along or you had no friends. The only time I refered to someone's skin was when it was to clarify which 'Mike' or 'Greg' I was talking about.

AiserX: Have you ever been loathed because of the color of your skin? Have you ever experienced being judged on sight? Did blacks vote for him simply because he is black? Yes, many did and well......he didn't deliver in some cases. Call it what you will but when all you have experienced is negative stereotype then suddenly a black man becomes president it gave us a brief hope that things HAD CHANGED. It didn't. This was a first in the US and the bad element came out for some. From the begining there was only one race that ran for president and nobody thought different. It was a learning experience for many and if given the opportunity of a black man running again, I'm sure many will put pride and passion aside and vote for the best man for the job. This whole thing to me is about America want to pidgeonhole, catagorize and label everyone. I consider myself an American period. I am not African because I was not born there. A drop in the bucket would be to stop the labels and 'identify' with simply being American.
