Yep. The plunge in oil prices and the struggling economy can clearly be blamed on the immigrants. There might just be enough rednecks in Canada for her to be successful.

Posted in: Younger employees increasingly resisting transfers See in context

A Japanese friend of mine who is now a Bucho of a big insurance company explained it to me once as he saw things (btw, he was transferred several times). He said the transfers are basically in place (at least traditionally) to prevent workers from getting too entrenched in a particular region and therefore prevent to close a connection to the clients. This, theoretically, would lead to less cronyism, graft, bribes, etc.

Posted in: With Tillerson, Trump keeps betting big on business leaders See in context

Drain the swamp and replace it with the Black Lagoon. Looking to be the most corrupt, in it for themselves bunch ever assembled. Trump went on and on and on about how Hillary was too close to Wall Street and Goldman Sachs. And who does he appoint? What a big effen hypocrite. This is all simply beyond disgusting. You were hookwinked USA. Good bye labour rights, good bye human rights. Have fun fermenting in it. Too bad other countries have to be affected by this.

Yubaru. Good comment. Exactly what I was thinking. Just rather poorly written I think. As for living a more simple life, they will probably be better off for it in terms of happiness.

sangetsu03. What? Yes, keep buying plastic garden gnomes for your garden until all the resources of the Earth are gone. Quit talking out your preachy arse, would you?

Daisuke-san. Live a simple life. Mass consumerism has never made anyone happy. Dump that tramp! Lots of nice girls out there.

Who cares what Trump thinks? He is the worst person on the face of the Earth. The U.S. has always been pissed about him because he didn`t bend over and take it like a chump. Screw the U.S. I think the last paragraph says alot about Castro.

Posted in: Trump may accomplish big things as he has no political strings. See in context

But he ran as a Republican. They will have free reign. Just look at who he is making as his team. Trump has no idea how to run a country. These are the dregs that will be making the decisions. http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/ultimate-inside-job-donald-trumps-transition-team-sordid-new-swamp-lobbyists-donors http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/chomsky-trumps-win-puts-govt-hands-most-dangerous-organization-world-history http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/steve-bannon-runs-anti-semitic-website-misogynist-and-will-be-one-donald-trumps-senior

Posted in: Clinton, Obama pledge to unite behind Trump presidency See in context

Here is what Michael Moore had to say today. Couldn`t agree more. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn't wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that's about to begin.

Posted in: Clinton, Obama pledge to unite behind Trump presidency See in context

They should not support Trump and the Republicans at all. The GOP did nothing but obstruct democracy while Obama was in power. Could be classified as treason really. Should denounce them every chance they get. Scary thing is, Gingrich and Juliani are probably worse than Trump. Now there is one of the most ignorant, evil triumvirates in history.

Posted in: What do you expect from Donald Trump as U.S. president? See in context

Lies, hate, fear mongering, nonsensical outbursts, insults, environmental destruction on a huge scale, discrimination, deportations, the conjuring of facts that suit his purposes, distraction, an economic depression, probably nuclear war.

All this criticism about getting the hits in the Japanese League. Well, if his hits were only in the Japanese League, ok. But he came to the ML and did even better, got the record for most hits in a season! He would have had the hits no matter where he played. Give credit where credit is due.

Posted in: What are your favorite memories of Muhammad Ali? See in context

So many things to love about Ali. I always liked the back and forth playfullness between Ali and Howard Cosell. There will never be another Ali. No one in the entertainment industry today even approaches what he did. Feel bad for the youth of today. So few great role models.

Posted in: About 1,700 students and researchers used research reactors before the 2011 accident. But some now have to go overseas to use nuclear facilities, or give up on their studies. See in context

Whats your point Uesaka? Its all due to greed, arrogance and indifference that proper walls were not built and other safety measures were not implemented (as they were repeatedly asked to do) in a historically tsunami prone area. No one to blame except the nuclear industry itself. What do you expect now?

Well, the cable companies have had it coming. Horrible programing at expensive monthly costs. 95% of the programming is unwatchable. Let`s face it. When the movie of the night is Sister Act Two, how can you blame your customers for wanting something else?

Tony Alderman. What world have you been living in? Take a look at the last 7 years and you will see that the exact same is true of the GOP. They are even worse. They are always the ones who start the mud slinging.

Trump equals disaster for the world. Bombers will be in the air during his inauguration. I would never support the Republicans but seriously, what is wrong with John Kasich? He seems to be the only sensible man on the stage during the debates. Notice how none of the others challenge him? They are too st@pid. He actually has definite policies and experience.

dcog9065. Most likely you are correct. As strangerland said, it is already happening on a wide scale. Read Kurt Vonnegut`s Player Piano and you will get a good idea of what life will be like. The only real benefit of robots that I see is ones that can perform complex medical procedures or perform jobs that are too hazardous to humans.
