High profile people are animals that are more equal than other animals of the same stripe.

"Animal Farm" is a good read as is Shardik, Watetship Down, etc. All are critical of governments

In my hometown there is a problem as many can no longer flights to the USA, not carrier specific.

Similar problems all over europe, etc.

Will the USA pay compensation, etc highly doubt it

I do prefer Excelsior Coffer, great morning specials.

Starbucks I found too pricey and I hate to-go cups.

Final point as a european I don't like US coffee flavours Tully etc are the worst, I do import my coffee from my hometown every month.

Too True.

Remember taking a Distributor to a high class Sushi restaurant, he inisisted on a California Roll, he also said it was not a real/authentic place as they didn't serve it. Had to do plenty apologising as I often took people there.

I disagree a good friend started of as a Grafitti artist creating large Murals.

Very little overheads as his office is his Ap.

Posted in: Trump orders new refugee screening, to prevent 'radical Islamic terrorists' from entering U.S. See in context

Recent trend is that the new ones are radicalised within the country and are young.

My country took down one cel = 4 people in 2 countries all legal and citizens.

Shocker was their ages 21, 20, 14 & 12.

Real problem is that it is wsy to easy for illegal immigrants to get medical, housing, work, schooling, etc.

Remove that and they will go elsewhere.

BTW, most eutopean countries are not as welcoming as england or gemany and they are not the european norm. But you wouldn't know unless you lived or were born there.

Agree, most likely won't be handy but buried in their bag. Better change taking a pic of the perp using their keitai.

Also pepper-spray can backgire depending on distance and wind direction. Stun Guns also got their limitations as anyone trained in close combat can point out.

As said 5-10 yrs or having a 3yr visa. Bit of paperwork and you are good to go. Ask beforehand which papers are needed as it varies between Applicants.

I think him and me are in similar straights, can't find a job in our field and are told to teach english.

My problem is age and not being a native english speaker.

Pepper Spray and Stun Guns, afaik, are not legal in Japan

Most commercial Pepper Spray is a mild form of what Cops, etc use and are trained to resist it.

Best are the ones combined with DayGlo paint that can't be washed of from skin for 3-5 days.
