Yes, I don’t hear much mention that it was Trump who got the ball rolling with his negotiations with the Taliban for the withdrawal from Afghanistan. By setting the May 1 deadline, he put pressure on Biden to withdraw the troops.
In a way, I wish Trump completed the withdrawal before he left office. This way, he would take the blame, or the…[Read more]

Japan imports more from China than any other country. They import more than twice as much from China than from the US.
They export more to the US than any country, but only slightly more than China.
With the US, Japan runs a big trade surplus. They run a trade deficit with China. (Doesn’t just about everybody?)
But their 2nd largest trading…[Read more]
I read Snowden’s book (and saw the movie), but I had no interest in reading Ben Rhodes’ book, nor would I waste money buying John Brennan’s book.. I’m glad Glenn Greenwald did read Rhodes’ book. Notice how Rhodes, Clapper and Brennan all end up being hired by CNN or MSNBC. After watching the video, I now I have a better understanding why some of…[Read more]
And the sound of his voice is quite loud, “WAIT, BEFORE YOU SCROLL AWAY…”.
I never listen beyond that point. It’s annoying.

He said they both were very sick. He lost his sense of taste for about two weeks, and his wife had no taste for about a month. His wife is a nurse and got some type of medication for both of them.

And at the end of the movie they said that Monsanto had collected over $100 million from farmers for violating their patent. Most farmers just pay Goliath, rather than fight.
I was reading a book written by Robert Reich. One chapter was about monopolies. In that chapter he talked about Monsanto. Here’s part of what he wrote about farmers who buy seeds from Monsanto:
“If farmers have any seeds left over, they must agree not to save and replant them in the future. In other words, once hooked, farmers have little choice…[Read more]
The panel discussion was mostly about Afghanistan. They were crucifying Joe Biden, saying things like “He should listened to the (so-called) experts”. Before that, Liz Cheney was one-on-one with Chuck Todd. Again, it was all about Afghanistan, and Biden’s blunder.
But then towards the end of the show, Chuck Todd pointed to a poll…

So, I decided to see if I could still sign-in. I looked up my password for Yahoo and signed in. No problems signing in. It was never de-activated. I was not locked-out all this time. It sounds like a scam to me.
