Was it Obama/Hillary or Trump that pressed that fake reset button? Was it Obama or Trump that was picked up on a hot mike while speaking to the Russians that he would be more flexible after he won the next election? Was it Obama or Trump that would not supply arms to the Ukraine? Was it Obamaor Trump that did nothing to Russia when it invaded the Ukraine? Was it Obama or Trump that pulled plans for a missile defense system in Europe after Russia complained? In what administration was the Russian meddling most prevalent and nothing done about it ? ( hmm . that would be who was in charge prior to the elections). Was it during Trump or Obama that the US sold 20% of its uranium to Russia. Was it Obama or Trump that upset the Russians by selling Ukraine arms and restoring plans for Eastern Europe defense? Was it Obama or Trump that recently place sanctions on Russia and expelled scores of "diplomats" ? Look at actions and just not words to see who really placates Russia. Was it Obama or Trump that attacked Syria at the airport where Russians were stationed? Was it Obama or Trump that drew a line in the sand and then let Syria and the Russians cross it? Was it Obama or Trump that propped up terrorist supporting Iran by giving them billions to stop nuclear programs yet did not get to inspect the sites developed by their military? Yes, he may say the wrong thing politically but the actions are what count, not political rhetoric. Much of what is reported is seen through the eyes of the liberal media, over 90% who vote democrat.

Fair play is always welcome and I think it was a good way to break ties rather than a coin-toss. That being said, having your team to not try to tie the game ( where you have control over the situation) and toss your chances into the wind and hope Senegal does not score is a poor example of soccer decision making. It worked out in the end but it was a very embarrassing performance and a new low in strategy to get to the knock-out round. Also ,not to mention sitting down so many starters and goal scorers in a game where you needed just a point to advance is bizarre. This was a game that would decide whether you passed through !! Finally, firing your coach just a few weeks before the World Cup and installing a new coach was also a huge mistake and failure of the National Soccer organization. The replacement they hired is not up to the task.

So the United States has to solve the social/economic problems of Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico? They are already in Mexico; why doesn't the Mexican government take them in? (answer is that Mexico is not much of a step up.

North Korea would love to see a unified Korea but only under its terms. Under any unification the economic and cultural effects of normalizing life in Korea to S. Korean standards would be staggering.

Almost, if not all, all of the shooters were on anti-depressant medications. Mayo clinic research indicates "In some children, antidepressants may also trigger anxiety, agitation, hostility, restlessness or impulsive behavior. " It also appears that there were warning signs (ignored) that the shooters were reaching a point to cause harm to themselves and others. Although the shooter was identified as a problem and fellow students said they were not surprised at what he did, there was no action taken by anyone to do anything that may have averted this massacre. The best the school system did was to expel him ! Was there no follow up?
Schools here are usually locked down with entrance by anyone closely watched. How did he enter the school? he was a known issue as well.

Not only manga, but JREast used tickets also make their way into toilet paper as well.
Recycling only makes sense; also better to use recycled products than to cut down trees.
