Suga. An old man with a fossilized mind, unable to discern the spite that he displays by honoring dead war criminals. Another conservative right-wing reactionary.
No worries..its what makes it all go around. Stability, deflation, all that good stuff

finite vs practically infinite energy source. When I saw the diesel / lith ion battery mention in the article...another not so.... wow! sugoi! moment from me. Had their been mention a new periodic table element battery type, something like that...would of got my attention.
Some poster mentioned a SEAL insertion.....you got to get there and back first...lol
Long range sub parked over the horizon can launch its munitions and be gone.

It depends on what one wants and needs from one's subs. At about $3 billion each, America's subs are not cheap. Furthermore, the US can only build one or two per year, with the current Los Angeles class of attack submarines approaching the end of their useful life. China, on the other hand, is building a large submarine factory that will be able to build 4 submarines per year.
Japan is not a super power and never will be. A super power must project force, kind of hard to do that when you need to gas up your diesels in the middle of the pacific to charge your Li ion batteries. There hasnt been a game changer battery technology developed in decades; its been a slow progression from lead acids to nickel hydrides to liions to phosphate liions. Telsa is now leading with a new li ion but its nothing game changer. Japan is able to build niche ships/planes/subs because they are under the protective umbrella of the US defense.

Very informative article. This information has been out there for a long time but needs to be refreshed occasionally; nothing really changes. Allot of US industrial and household brands are actually owned by Japanese, and US brands in Japan are usually owned by a japanese subsidiary or wholly owned and silenced. When a US politician starts talking about creating "clean" energy jobs, I suspect they have a micron depth of understanding of how it all works. A "clean" Chinese or Japanese solar panel mfg who is welcomed to the US with tax subsidies etc is not exactly contributing to creating jobs, long term, but rather inviting predatory business practices, that can harm you later.

Ask me several years ago about my feelings on this incident; I would of joined the posters who sympathize
Ask me now...Im just neutral about it. Having been verbally abused and even assaulted in Japan, and watch people who have a different skin tone than me suffer much worse, then ask Japanese what they think about it, the reply was always..."maybe they cant speak English?"....kind of changes your perception.
For the posters saying "its Trumps America" thats just ignorant because much worse happened during GW2 America during post 9/11
If you dont look like the natives, in any country, and your an immigrant, this kind of thing can happen to you at any time. Its part of the collateral of being an immigrant, and looking different
Allot of Japanese crave honorary white acceptance, only to find themselves in an enviroment where Asian Americans are in one category, with their unique struggles in US society.
Ive been hustled for money in the US. Best be culturally aware of where your at. "Hey give me some change for gas"
"WTH for? go get a job"
out comes the piece
Risk vs Reward, I reward myself with my life and reply with. "ok I aint got much but give this 2$."
Acting shook or arrogant...your not in Japan buddy.

Four days ago trump made fun of Biden for wearing a mask.
Today the country’s in a crisis because of his lack of intelligence.
He is doing to the country what he did to his businesses, taking uninformed risks and losing heavily.
Just all this concern and frenzy...Interesting.
During the riots, there wasnt any concern for COVID, none at all. Trying to understand; its an on/off kind of thing?
Now the Walter Reed press briefing was sunny and full of hope...but uh oh..you dont want that. You want that doom and gloom. Economy to fail, burn it all up, and Trump in serious condition, on the ventilator.
What a joke.

lets hope he recovers. Its been sheer hell for him the past 4 years, 24/7 media harassment, impeachment, domestic terrorism, now this. Not once did he divert with foreign wars, just became the beast of burden for all the scum. We are in safe hands with Pence. Interesting watching the MSM dance; careful not to ridicule too much as to offend, but the usual snipes. Trump is one tough dude; just imagine Biden with the same circumstances.
-13 ( +6 / -19 )
In Trump's base the two groups mostly staunchly pro-Trump, pro-authoritarian are predatory capitalists, the so-called 'elite' (who've gained even more power and wealth since he's been in office), and white nationalists.
The people whos businesses were burned, kicked in the head, beat, shot and murdered, were they ever compensated or thats not worth pursuing? not worth a mention? We got the capitalist racist lecture, you been on that for months, but what about justice and all those things?

Do you condemn Antifa?" reporter Barbara Barr asked Biden.
"Yes, I do"
yes thanks for keeping us informed
During the riots, he repeatedly came on MSM and told Antifia to stand down, condemned the murders looting and burning. Trump was hunkering down somewhere.

No president in history has handed out or been given so much socialism as Trump
but you keep screaming he was responsible for all the COVID deaths and the recession. You got Dem mayors shutting it all down ( well we took a pause for burn loot shoot, COVID took a break) so now your saying he was a generous socialist? Hard to follow this.

For the record, Japan has universal health care since 1961.
You left out the part where many Japanese will go abroad for any surgery that requires advanced technology and skill

Biden 'This man is a racist'.
Again someone who says as it is!!!
yes, of course. He was busy helping lock up "super predators" back in the day...but lets forget about that, he is has been cleansed. Kam seems to have a record doing the same.

get rid of all fossil fuels
California can talk like that, since 1 million volt high tension lines bring in power to them from another state via hydro
Do you know how much coal is used to power a 1 giga watt power plant?
Like over a train load of coal a day
People who talk about renewable usually have no connection to it and they leave out inconvenient facts
you have to build 2 infrastructures for it to work because when the wind/solar is off line, then the fossils must take over.

its just like making an investment or buying something
This BIden is old, he is spent, he is lost. He said a whole lot about nothing today
because he is about nothing. 40+ years of nothing
Kamela is the right gender and race to put a happy face on all of it
Im not sold...lol

Im one of those uneducated white guys you mention and I desire your lecture. Now I read the Trump COVID response, he responsible for all the deaths, the recession, the riots, the racist response to the riots. I took notes, I got that part. Trump very bad.
Now do tell how your team is going to replicate or surpass, the raging economy we had just 8 months ago. There hasnt been anything like it in recent history. So your suggesting lithium batteries? legalizing cocaine? Do tell, you got all the answers. Will it be a socialist economy or everybody gets a wage?

Trump’s hopes for 2020 depended on fantastic overperformance with white voters without college degrees. He doesn’t need to decline much among these voters to convert any faint hope of success into certainty of disaster. Second, and perhaps more important, the ink-on-paper confirmation of Trump’s indebtedness, tax dodging, and all-around crookedness will get into Trump’s head.
Thanks for all that, and the proud boys and Trumps taxes and tomorrow who knows, youve been at this for 4 years now...but if Biden wins...do you think that what Trump did will ever be replicated? Before this COVID...one of the greatest economies that was ever recorded. So let me get this straight...Kam and Joe got something better for us? A solar panel factory? Sorry that was taken over by China long time ago. Obama promised high speed rail, another yawn.

MSM has already took the WS response and are hypin it up, so predictable. Biden the saint Trump the racist..yawn
I knew from day 1 Trump was not a politician, and if he loses, he will have to take accountability for his ego and taking the bait. he just got to always win every argument. If he would just practice some self preservation common sense and keep his mouth shut, he would glide through.
He has done many great things; the VA overhaul, for those of us that played with the stock market, it was on fire, so many reforms and jobs. LNG and the petrol business was on fire. The Dems are exploiting this COVID to steer the sheeple into thinking they are "normal" Impeachment riots fear blame and the COVID, a wonderful bunch.
Sigh...you cant have everything in life.
-11 ( +0 / -11 )
But Joe did not condemn Antifa, instead he downplayed their threat as just an ideology.
MSM will leave that part out; after all I need them to think for me.
Make it clear, Im not a supporter of Proud Boys, Tea party (are they still around) or any other here today gone tomorrow group, but these leftist people have gone nuts. Im more concerned about that and I think everybody else who cares is also.

Nah, Kamela bombed at the Dem debates with her incoherent health care plan, her economic plan criminal justice plan, and any other plan, shows just how disconnected inexperienced and incompetent she really is. Kam and Joe got some magic...Jan 2021 Covid disappears and the economy rebounds...green jobs for all of you!
-9 ( +4 / -13 )
Thats just low hanging fruit they pick at, they been at that for years. The whole burn loot shoot is based on it, Im not fooled by it. Biden was scared by it so he hid from us for several weeks. Now emerged and coached to debate...what a joke.
-12 ( +2 / -14 )
Where is Senator Kamala Harris? Possibly sniggering from the gallery?
probably writing up an economic plan...her latest was some feel good crap about we need green non union jobs, you know the renewable energy pie in the sky green deal spin they have been spewing for years.
Problem with that is, there is no such thing...lol. For every hour a solar panel wind farm is off line, a fossil fuel or nuke plant must make up the difference.

Trump didnt have his thoughts together but when he cornered Biden, doofus looked shook. For those who pay attention, thats what matters. on the police Hunter and other good points, I could tell Biden was at a loss. Trumps game seemed off; should of went in but Trump gets emotional.
-7 ( +4 / -11 )
Policy issues will be forgotten Trump is obviously unbalanced and told white supremacy groups to “Stand down and stand by.”
yeah but Biden quipped that Antifia is not a group but an idea
Another, by extension...hands off leadership while our country burns.

Donald really doubled down on the "clown" look tonight - he must have put on a double-dose of bronzer....
Interesting, I seem to recall you posting so much blah about the SOFA and law and order, when a young man on a base here was locked up for some crime....but during the burn loot and shoot of our country, in which we served to protect from both foreign and domestic enemies....never saw anything from you....why not?
-9 ( +4 / -13 )
Biden also choked when Trump asked him why he didnt speak out during the riots and told him it was because he didnt want to upset his radical leftist base. Again, silence.
-17 ( +4 / -21 )
actually for those of us that can think, it was 70-30 for Trump because Biden failed to address why he did not condemn the riots, why the Dem cojntrolled cities are over run with violence, and what would he do in such a situation. At a macro level, Biden is not a leader, instead a puppet for people who we dont know or understand. I dont know why Trump gets into the weeds with groups and conspiracies but when it comes to my country being burned down, I dont want some corrupt doofus taking sides with domestic terrorism.
-18 ( +6 / -24 )
2 things that stand out for me about BIden; his sons corruption and cover up
and Bidens silence and by extension, condoning the burn/loot/shoot of my country
now, being the career politician that he is, he is coming with "I condem violence"
sure you do, thats why you went on MSM and told them to stop.
-17 ( +6 / -23 )
I think the Dem loons coached Biden what to say, you could tell it by his canned responses but when Trump pressed him on whats important and why Biden never condemed the riots, he was silent.
Trump should of worked that more but the moderator kept giving Biden more time.
-17 ( +9 / -26 )
When Trump asked Biden about his support from Law Enforcement, Biden choked, then went to his bumbling stutter doofus mode.
Wasnt too impressed with Trump though; the reply about the white supremacist should of been better.
Still, Biden never disappoints as a loser, trying to deflect and his reaction to his sons deviant behavior and his crime bill was silence; good shots by Trump.
Biden is joke, a has been exploit trying to come up again.
