US corporate earnings are increasing at over 22%, productivity is finally increasing for the first time in over 10 years, wages are starting to rise, consumer spending is rising to support continuation of GDP growth, and consumer balance sheets are in good shape. Consumer confidence is at record highs.  Commodity prices have declined substantially. The US dollar remains high. It does not get much better than this.

South Africa's seizure of large agricultural farm land, and divide the land among many, will result in small unproductive farms, detrimental to the economy.

"Trump needs to be reelected in two short years."

Trump will be reelected, he has accomplished much for the American people, that will not be blinded by hate. Regardless of hateful comments the American people know the truth. The American economy is doing well and will continue to do so under Trump;s guidance.

Trump will win this battle for fair trade, the odds are in his favor, China has much more to lose than the US.

China's economy is beginning to waver and the trend is . . . it will even get worse.

America's economy is on a high roll and the trend is . . . it will even get better.

"Abe better hurry... Trumpy won't be there much longer." Ha ha ha!

Look what Trump is doing for America and it is going to get even better. It looks like Q3 GDP will probably exceed 4.0%, unemployment drops to record low levels for all groups, trade deals are being finalized with Mexico, the EU and then Canada. Corporate earnings are increasing at over 22%, productivity is finally increasing for the first time in over 10 years, wages are starting to rise, consumer spending is rising to support continuation of GDP growth, and consumer balance sheets are in good shape. American consumer confidence is at record highs.

A good discussion pertaining to demilitarization and abductions. also is is time for a discussion between Trump and Abe for a bilateral free trade agreement between the U. S. and Japan.

"Japan is planning to accept a greater number of caregivers from three Southeastern Asian countries having bilateral free trade agreements with Tokyo."

With each these three Asian countries, Japan has a bilateral free trade agreement, yet refuses to give their golden goose, the United States of America a bilateral free trade agreement. Why is this?

Trump does not have misguided trade wars. He presents unfair trade practices as the truly are. Trump will not back down. He will stay the course. Trump will win as China has much more to lose than America.

After World War Two, it was America that supported the restructuring of Japan. It was America's free trade that opened the doors for an onslaught of Japanese exports. It is America that has and does defend Japan. Where is the appreciation and thankfulness.

The above is a true statement. Let's stick to the truth. It was America's open markets that made Japan great again.

China desperately need the glutinous American market for it's exports. Wait for Trump to retaliate against China with increased tariffs and we shall see who wins this trade war over unfair trade practices. In China, factories closing, unemployment.

"As China and the United States have been locked in a tit-for-tat trade war, Beijing and Tokyo have also pledged to step up bilateral cooperation to tackle trade protectionism by Trump and safeguard the free trade system."

This one made me laugh, here are to of the most protectionist countries in the world with unfair trade practices.

The most logical re-locations would have been the backside of Kadena Air Base that has two large runways seldom used or the backside of Camp Hansen where the troops are. Why did this not happen?

As the only nation to have come under nuclear attack, Japan has been backing the creation of a nuclear free world, and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has vowed to make strenuous efforts toward the goal. I have seen the devistation that war can bring. If it were not for Truman, no doubt the people of Hokkaido would be speaking Russian today. Truman denied Stalin the occupation of Hokkaido.

Our 11th Airborne Division were the first troops to enter Japan. We occupied northern Honshu and Hokkaido. My regiment was the 511th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Below is an excerpt from Book I, of the Private Payne trilogy 'Ride The East Wind'.

The War is Over

The war is over; I find myself walking the streets as an eighteen-year-old soldier, looking in awe and wonder at a world of devastation and despair that I see before me. Japan is an intriguing and different world. I glance at homeless people gathered in small groups near train stations looking forlorn and destitute. I see makeshift houses built along the riverbanks and shacks under bridges to help block the cold winter weather. Adults and children hug tattered blankets to keep warm. As I slowly walk in the city, I stop and stare with wonder at the bombed out buildings- many now call home.

    At the entrance of a temple, I see a cluster of former Japanese soldiers missing arms or legs. Some have bandages- leaving their wounds festering, hoping for donations of food and money.

A few months ago, the Japanese were my deadly enemies. Now, I see them through different eyes- eyes of compassion. I realize the impact of war on families and children. . . . . . . .
