STATESMAN OR ARTIFICER
It is cold but fine around Tokyo today.
The next Monday, November 24, is a Japan’s public holiday, though political situations are getting tight here and there.
SECTION I: This Week’s Invention
It is a wired flying engine for an individual.
One of its applications is for the use of fire fighting as below illustrated.
If you want to commercialize this product, please express your concern to me in any way. GM is highly expected to do so.
SECTION II: Living History
On page 14 of "Living History" written by Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the only remark on Japanese Americans is found in a context of her mother’s memory:
As a child in California, she had watched the Japanese Americans in her school endure blatant discrimination and daily taunt from the Anglo students. After she returned to Chicago, she often wondered what happened to one particular boy she liked. The kids called him “Tosh,” short for Toshihishi. She saw him again when she returned to Alhambra to serve as Grand Marshal at their sixtieth high school reunion. As she had suspected, Tosh and his family had been interned during World War II, and their farm had been taken from them. But she was heartened to learn that, after years of struggling, Tosh had become a successful vegetable farmer himself.
Indeed, if her kind mother had been destined for an interracial marriage with “Tosh,” Hillary must have been a kind of “Sansei” – the third generation of Japanese Americans – or so.
Then, she must have more passionately shouted "Change" in the 2008 Presidential Election.
Anyway, she might have been born to be Secretary of State of the U.S. rather than an heir to vegetable farmland owned by a Japanese American family.
That is all for today.
Last night I saw on TV "Always Zoku Sanchome no Yuhi," a Japanese movie dramatizing ordinary people’s life in Tokyo in late 1950’s when the Tokyo Tower was built.

In summary, a stupid writer lost a big literary award but got a genius foster son and won a Miss-Japan class of dancer whose friend was the wandering mother of the boy who refused to live with his natural father, though not through a legal marriage with the boy's mother, since he was a very rich businessman and despised the poor writer.
(Uhh, what a Saturday it is, my dear! [The killer of a former Japan's vice minister has turned himself in at the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Headquarters, they reported.])
1Co 11:21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
1Co 11:22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.
1Co 11:23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
1Co 11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

Japanese Obamas Yet to Dance and Sing
The recent blog postings of Japanese Diet members are as follows:
HIDENAO NAKAGAWA (The Liberal Democratic Party)
Mr. Nakagawa is still a focus of the media though he has been kept out of the center of power since he resigned as the LDP Secretary-General when the LDP lost the Upper House election in the summer of 2007.
The veteran lawmaker recently wrote that the leaders of the opposition Democratic Party of Japan should stop using the argument about Japan’s possible participation in ground battles in Afghanistan as a means to tighten their control over other members of their Party. DPJ lawmakers seem to get their loyalty to the Party tested as their leaders have launched a policy line to have Japan's Self-Defense Force take a more active role in Afghanistan.
Indeed, the Democratic Party of Japan seems to become more intolerant while the LDP becomes so incoherent.
( http://www.nakagawahidenao.jp/pc/modules/wordpress0/index.php?p=1113 )
CHUKOU HAYAKAWA (The Liberal Democratic Party)
Mr. Hayakawa wrote that he has discovered the power of wisdom being intensified and expanded by many viewers of his blog.
He called it “group wisdom”. The member of the Lower House of the Diet seems to be happy to have many new friends through his blog.
Mr. Hayakawa thinks that to make the blog-based discussion fruitful you have to be humble and polite while bravely pointing at an error in other’s opinion.
YASUKO KOMIYAMA (The Democratic Party of Japan)
Ms. Komiyama posted her pictures appealing to citizens and commuters at an entrance to a railroad station in her constituency in Saitama Prefecture, just north of Tokyo.
They show a typical state of daily activities of a member of an assembly in Japan who wants to be reelected or get more votes in next election.
HIROSHI OGUSHI (The Democratic Party of Japan)
Mr. Ogushi, an ex-bureaucrat of the Finance Ministry, recently wrote in his blog that the global financial market can sometimes suffer a big tsunami as the world is now observing. Such a financial tsunami can be extremely big, but it will neither last long nor be remembered for years.
Even the status of the dollar as the key currency in the global trade will not change, he figures. The challenge the French President has posed against the dollar will not be successful.
He may be right or wrong; yet it is important for a Parliament member to express his opinion on the financial crisis once in a century so unequivocally as to be qualified as a legislator.
SATSUKI KATAYAMA (The Liberal Democratic Party)
Ms. Satsuki Katayama, an ex-bureaucrat of the Finance Ministry, confessed in her blog that her mother fell in a critical condition, but now she is recovering from a chasm of death as a kind of miracle.
She happily put down that she got encouragement from disabled persons whose assembly she joined.
Ms. Satsuki Katayama, as an expert, has judged that the outcome of G20 Conference held in Washington D.C. can be valued, though promotion of domestic demand is not so easy.
( http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/katayamasathuki2007/20055835.html )
That is all for today.
But, ex-state-minister Mr. Katsuhiko Shirakawa has criticized the Aso cabinet: "They look like a captain of a ship who loves his new uniform so much that he continues to pose at the helm smugly while the ship is about to strike on a rock."
( http://www.liberal-shirakawa.net/tsurezuregusa/index.php?itemid=830 )
Indeed the index of the Tokyo Stock Exchange fell below 8,000 yen and the one of NYSE below 8,000 dollars.
Yet, I am optimistic, since I have hope.
(Ah, what a week it was, dear!)
Mar 11:33 And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.

"50 to 10 Men" or "400 to 98 Yen"
As I once wrote, I have seen Jesus Christ around Tokyo several times but never received an invitation to a beatific dinner from our Holy and Holy Lord.
That’s the dilemma facing cynical but successful businessman Nick Cominsky when he accepts an invitation to join Jesus of Nazareth for dinner at a local restaurant. Nick is convinced that his friends at work are pulling a prank. But the man sitting across from him appears to be quite serious, introducing Himself as “Jesus. My family called me Yeshua.”
Nick accepts his dinner companion’s suggestion to suspend his disbelief and “proceed as if I am Jesus.” What follows is a fascinating conversation that covers family relationships, world religions, and the afterlife, among other topics. Along the way, Nick confronts his own unfulfilled longings, spiritual uncertainties, and anger with God and he begins to wonder if the man across from him holds the answers to his deepest questions.
The above novel was published around 2005 and aroused some notice.

I'm a Skeptic, October 22, 2005
By Eric Wilson "novelist" (Nashville, TN United States) - See all my reviews
I'm a skeptic when it comes to little books that are supposed to pack a big punch. They seem shallow, glib, and over-simplified. Usually.
I read "Dinner with a Perfect Stranger" in one sitting. Yes, it's short; yes, it's simple; but it's also profoundly moving. There are no big surprises--a few little ones--and no hit-you-in-the-gut emotional twists. Instead, the author moves us through this meal with Jesus in such a way that I wanted to kick back and have coffee and dessert too. I wanted to meet Jesus face to face and ask some of my own questions….
The above common sentiment and longing of Americans, the greatest beneficiary of Christianity, can be summarized in the following way:
From the WSJ Opinion Archives
HOUSES OF WORSHIP
An Intimate Dinner
What is a personal relationship with Jesus?
by MARK NOLL
Friday, August 19, 2005 12:01 A.M. EDT
The Jesus who meets the young businessman is calm and empathetic. "He had an average build," the businessman-narrator tells us. "His suit wasn't Armani, but it wasn't Discount Warehouse either." Over the course of a lingering dinner at an Italian restaurant Jesus offers his new, and skeptical, friend a brief course in apologetics, including especially C.S. Lewis's famous contention from "Mere Christianity" that there are only three possible responses to the claims that Jesus made for himself: He was a liar; he was a madman; or he was God incarnate as a human being.
Less traditional is the book's answer to a question that the medieval philosopher-theologian Anselm of Canterbury asked in the title of his 1098 volume: "Why Did God Become a Man?" To David Gregory the answer is clear and worth repeating: so that individuals could have "a personal relationship" with God; he wanted to build a "relationship" of "trust" with humans; Jesus, more than anything, wants "to have a relationship" with individuas.
So it is, as well, in a modern America marked by the increasing demands of work, strain between the generations, political acrimony, international uncertainty and peripatetic lifestyles. Into such a culture a Christian message stressing the possibility of an enduring--and often less demanding--personal relationship with the loving Creator of the universe sounds very appealing. But does such an adaptation retain enough of historic Christianity's other dimension? Or does dinner with a perfect stranger fit a little too conveniently into our lives?
The key factors we have to acknowledge are the year “2005” and “WSJ - Wall Street Journal.”
In 2005, if Jesus Christ had issued an unambiguous warning on sub-prime loan security-embedded financial goods being leveraged to 100 times larger volume to workers on Wall Street and in any other places, including the White House, the current tragedy on Wall Street and even the turmoil around GM might have been avoided.
Nonetheless, I think that there is a chance that Americans will recover efficiently from this economic quagmire deeply anchored by a tremendous amount of the national debts to Japan, China, and other stakeholders, so long as they have never lost respect, no matter worldly if not spiritually, for Jesus Christ, the Holy, Holy Lord of their ancestors having lived in Europe.
As the Son of God, Jesus Christ must be in charge of determining a fate of every rich man in this world, including kings and queens, presidents and prime ministers, investors and financiers, corporate chairmen and presidents, and various upper- and middle-class citizens, you must long for a dinner with Jesus Christ more than one with, say, Mr. Barack Obama.
On Wall Street in 2005, if there had been 50 people who respected Jesus Christ so much as to be waiting for an invitation for a dinner with Him, the God would surely not destroy Wall Street, New York, the East Coast including Washington D.C., and the whole United States of America, though you might like to lower the bar to 10 like Abraham.
Yet, in my personal view, it would be very difficult to spot a single executive on Wall Street who has learned proper table manners (ever since the debacle of WTC in 2001 as might have been the case in the time prior to the Great Depression but after the Civil War).
For example, even in Japan, Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso answered "400 yen" to a question on a price of a cup noodle posed in a Diet session. The instant noodles with a cup to contain them inside costs usually "160 yen" or less.
To judge a person whether he or she has the very proper table manners mankind is allowed to exhibit before Holy, Holy, and Holy Lord Jesus Christ, let him or her take a cup noodle and see his or her manners.
I suppose it would be very difficult for a rich man to pass this preliminary examination, if he is good at observing table manners at a French cuisine banquet.
Learn good manners for taking a cup noodle, which I sometimes purchase at 98 yen, before dreaming of a blessed dinner with our Ever-Holy Lord Jesus Christ in New York or Paris, if not in the White House or the Prime Minister's Official Residence in Tokyo.
(Yet, personally I love this song, though wine and a cup noodle is not a sweet combination for my taste. But how about you?:
Mar 11:20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
Mar 11:21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
Mar 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
Mar 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Take Thy Rest in Safety
Yesterday I saw a strange foreigner. He looked like coming there in a hurry to check me for some purpose. Though appearing still young, tough and strong, he turned to be harmless eventually, since I also turned to him so as to check him. Then he disappeared from my sight. It was a very safe day for me as usual like yours.
PART I: TERROR IN JAPAN
Last night two horrible assaults, one accomplished and another attempted, on former administrative vice-ministers of the Japanese Government were reported widely by the media in Japan.
Ex-health official, wife murdered
Wife of another former official also stabbed
SAITAMA (Kyodo) In separate but possibly related knife attacks, a former top health ministry bureaucrat and his wife were found stabbed to death in their Saitama home while the wife of another retired health ministry bureaucrat was seriously wounded in Tokyo, police said Tuesday.
As far as I know, this is the first criminal case that a former administrative vice-minister of the Japanese Government was physically attacked with a fatal weapon.
The background of this series of the attacks is that millions of the Japanese people are now in trouble with the Social Insurance Agency due to sabotage, falsification, and poor management of their pension records having been conducted mala fide by bureaucrats. The two former administrative vice-ministers were once in positions and office for directly supervising the Agency.
However, this kind of terror is very rare in Japan, since a deadly attack on a former administrative vice-minister of the Japanese Government has never happened after World War II until this case.
And, prevention of recurrence of this kind of terror on bureaucrats will be thoroughly pursued by the Japanese Government and the people.
The police must find out and arrest the criminal with utmost effort. Cooperation from citizens would be essential. The media must also support investigation and search by the police.
As it is estimated that more than trillion yen has been lost from the pension funds due to uncountable breaches of duty by officials of the Social Insurance Agency in these decades, the Japanese Government must prepare at least a hundred-billion-yen ($1 billion) budget for solving this case and taking precautionary measures.
Domestic security and safety of Japan must be maintained if it costs trillions of yen, following suit of the United States of America.
PART II: STUPID WHITE MEN II
At last Mr. Michael Moore has not been hit in any way under the Bush Administration.
Mr. Moore must be very safe under the coming Obama Administration.
Who among us is not at a loss for words? Tears pour out. Tears of joy. Tears of relief. A stunning, whopping landslide of hope in a time of deep despair
But what a way to start! Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th President of the United States. Wow. Seriously, wow.
Yet, I wish Mr. Moore to further survey the JFK assassination, the Martin Luther King Jr. assassination, the Robert Kennedy assassination, Princess Diana’s death, and JFK Jr.’s death.
It is so because the JFK assassination, the Martin Luther King Jr. assassination, and the Robert Kennedy assassination could be really construed as a preamble to the Vietnam War where more than five million people were killed, including civilians and soldiers of all the involved countries, in 1960’s and 1970’s, without mentioning the subsequent Cambodian massacre where more than one million people were executed.
Yet, Princess Diana’s death and JFK Jr.’s death must be preliminary announcements for the War on Terror where hundreds of thousands of civilians and soldiers of all the involved countries are said to have lost their lives already.
And remember that it is the situation on Wall Street that has finally allowed for the victory of Mr. Barack Obama and Mr. Michael Moore.
If the situation there is settled and Wall Street business is recovered, the tide around Mr. Barack Obama and Mr. Michael Moore might change.
You still need a historical backbone to leverage this intoxicating experience of success and the triumph once in a century.
That is all for today.
Ms. Caroline Bouvier Kennedy is completely safe now, everybody reckons.
But, remember she has bravely helped Mr. Barack Obama be qualified as a fair candidate for the office where her father once presided.
But, do you think that EEE Reporter truly helped Mr. Barack Obama be qualified as a fair candidate for the office of the President of the U.S., the sole military ally of Japan today, for the sake of Ms. Kennedy?
Job 11:18 And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.
Job 11:19 Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee.
Job 11:20 But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.

Private Edition on American Judaists’ Voting Study
After a CM on TV using the song “Across the Universe,” a midnight TV news program reported that Mr. Obama met with Mr. McCain in Chicago recently.
Yet, Mrs. Clinton is also from Chicago.
SECTION I: MAJOR PLAYER
There are two major unique groups of people in the United States: African Americans and American Judaists.
Of course the major player of the United States of American has been European Americans if coming down from ancestors born in Great Britain or Ireland.
However, what makes America different from Europe is undeniable social forces of African Americans and American Judaists except Indigenous Americans and Hispanics.
Put simply a majority of members of the Republican Party are a majority of European Americans. Accordingly a minority of European Americans constitute the Democratic Party with African Americans and American Judaists.
Generally speaking, no matter how hard they may work, the coalition of African Americans and American Judaists alone cannot seize the power in Washington D.C.
In this sense, a minority of European Americans are a key group to deciding the case in a national election.
As the large-scale financial crisis that is sending a shock wave from Wall Street since this September has turned to be a real threat to poor European Americans, “the minority of European Americans on the Democratic side” have gained momentum with new members from “poor European Americans,” resulting in a clear victory for Mr. Obama and the Democratic Party.
SECTION II: MR. OBAMA AND "AMERICAN JEWS"
It is true that it was often said that Mr. Obama was not so popular among American Judaists before the 2008 Presidential Election voting.
Obama has smaller support among Jews
by Chris Megerian - Sept. 26, 2008 04:13 PM
Cox News Service
That's because Obama could have the least Jewish support of any Democratic presidential candidate since Jimmy Carter faced Ronald Reagan in 1980. A national poll released Thursday by the American Jewish Committee has him leading McCain 57 to 30 percent among Jewish voters, with 13 percent undecided. By comparison, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., won 77 percent of the Jewish vote in the 2004 presidential election, according National Election Pool exit polls.
Jewish voters have always been reliably Democratic, but support for Republican presidential candidates has been increasing.
1992 - 80 percent Democrat, 11 percent Republican
1996 - 78 percent Democrat, 16 percent Republican
2000 - 79 percent Democrat, 19 percent Republican
2004 - 77 percent Democrat, 22 percent Republican
2008 - 57 percent Democrat, 30 percent Republican, 13 percent undecided
But the exit poll of the 2008 Presidential Election voting shows that Mr. Obama got 78% and Mr. McCain 21%.
It can be also ascribed to the financial crisis. But, there must be more important underlying factors that Mr. Obama garnered that support.
If American Judaists fully support Mr. Obama, it is still poor European Americans that must decide the outcome of the Presidential Election.
Yet, it is very important to see the actual state of support for Mr. Obama from American Judaists, since American Judaists have more social, economic, and religious potential.
SECTION III: AMERICAN JUDAIASTS
A majority of American Judaists did not look like passionate on supporting Mr. Obama before this September.
However the debacle of Wall Street prompted them to changing their view on Mr. Obama or adversely the mainstream and successful European Americans. Accordingly, ordinary but neither super rich nor very influential American Judaists were prompted to take concerted action with poor European Americans and African Americans in addition to not-super-rich Hispanics.
But, as Mr. Summers, Mr. Rubin, Ms. Albright, Mr. Holbrook, Mr. Cohen, Mr. Glickman, Mr. Reich, Mr. Kantor, Ms. Barshefsky, and Mr. Berger are all Judaist secretaries and dignitaries in the Clinton Administration, rich and influential American Judaists must have been determined to drive Mr. Obama as far as possible in the 2008 Presidential Election.
Ordinary American Judaists, even getting humbly richer under the Clinton and Bush Administrations without being much contaminated by avarice, seem to have decided to join those rich and influential members of their religious group when so hit or disillusioned by the Wall Street fiasco.
Rich Christians are closer to Rich Judaists than to poor Christians.
Poor Christians are closer to Poor Judaists than to rich Christians.
In a normal situation, every American Judaist behaves like a Christian American. But, as Christian Europeans broke this rule during the reign of Nazis, the chasm between different religions can be exposed in any country including the U.S. no matter what subtle form it might be in the beginning.
Ordinary American Judaists living in ordinary environments with ordinary European American Christians without any sense of potential threat before must have sensed a hidden danger under this very unusual circumstance called "the financial crisis once in a century" along with the emergence of African American Presidential candidate Mr. Barack Obama and the large-scale military invasion of Christian troops into Islamic regions under the name of the War on Terror.
Though poor Christians have become more closer to Poor Judaists, American Judaists have been requested by the histrical mandate to be more Judaistic or make the U.S. more Judaistic for their safety, security, prosperity, and religious identification.
It is because the U.S. is yet to integrate Christianity and Judaism into one meta-religion.
There is no assurance that the U.S. will never turn to be a kind of Europe before 1945.
American Judaists as a whole need their own American President who is much closer to them than Mr. Clinton is. And, Mr. Obama looks like having this potential though not as a true Judaist.
The true theme, at least in the middle and long term, is not an African American President but a President for, or from, American-Judaists.
As I bought the other day a Japanese book titled “Shikaban Yudaya Bunkaron (Private Edition on Jewish Culture Study)” by Mr. Tatsuru Uchida, I cannot stop mentioning Judaists.
（ http://www.bk1.jp/product/02695488 ）
Though the Japanese author does not look like perfectly understanding who and what "Jews" are (as is usual for Japanese), his citing of a French expression is very impressive: "Juif est Juif."
(Japanese and Jews have three things in common: birth, marriage, and death. You may have, too, if it is only two, folks.
Pro 11:16 A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong men retain riches.
Pro 11:17 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.
Pro 11:18 The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.

(At a shintoism shrine, Japan)
THE TWO FIRST CENTURIES
According to Wikipedia, the sequence of historical events around A.D. 1 or 1 B.C. is as follows:
• 63 BCE Pompey captures Jerusalem, and establishes Roman annexation of Judea as a client kingdom. King Judah Aristobulus II removed from power, while his brother John Hyrcanus II becomes king under Roman suzerainty.
• 53 BCE The Parthians defeat the Romans under Crassus in the Battle of Carrhae
• 49 BCE January 10: Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon river, precipitating war with Rome
• 44 BCE Julius Caesar murdered
• 31 BCE Roman Civil War: Battle of Actium — Off the western coast of Greece, forces of Octavian defeat troops under Mark Antony and Cleopatra.
• 27 BCE The Roman Senate votes Octavian the title of Augustus. Augustus eventually assumes all authority formerly held by the Roman senate becoming the first emperor. The Roman state is henceforth known as the Roman Empire, and the period from 27 BCE to CE 305 as the Principate.
• c. 6 to 4 BCE Birth of Jesus of Nazareth (see Chronology of Jesus' birth and death, Anno Domini, and Common Era for further details)
• 9: Three Roman legions were ambushed and destroyed at Teutoberg Forest by Germans under the leadership of Arminius.
• 14: Augustus Caesar, first emperor of Rome, dies. His nephew Tiberius is his successor.
• 27–36: Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Death of Jesus.
• Christian Council of Jerusalem.
• July 19, 64: Great Fire of Rome, first Roman mass Persecution of Christians, earliest significant recognition of Christians in Rome.
• 66–73 First Jewish-Roman War.
• 70, August: destruction of Herod's Temple in Jerusalem by the Romans under Titus.
This is the most mysterious era of the history of mankind.
In 63 B.C., Pompey captures Jerusalem, and establishes Roman annexation of Judea.
In A.D. 66, First Jewish-Roman War leading to destruction of Herod's Temple in Jerusalem by the Romans under Titus.
And thereafter, Israelites have gone under a "great change."
Compare contemporary Judaists, namely the so called “Jews in America and Europe or any other places in addition to in Israel,” with Israelites having lived in the first centuries before and after the birth of “Jesus of Nazareth.”
Extremely speaking, Judaists of today seem to have nothing crucial common to Israelites having lived before the fall of Jerusalem and the subsequent Diaspora.
Very importantly, Judaists of today look like ancient Romans but not ancient Israelites not only in terms of appearance but also concerning ethical standards.
It may be that they think today that they are a kind of Israelites depicted in the Bible, but the truth might be very different.
It may be also that people except Judaists today think that they are a kind of Israelites depicted in the Bible, but the truth might be very different.
Why Jesus Christ had to be born between 63 B.C. and A.D. 66 is the greatest mystery in these 2000 years, even if the second greatest mystery is Islam having been given to Arabs and neighboring peoples in and after the seventh century.
I really hope that you will start to ponder it to get any conclusion or new findings.
It is so since we have a plenty of time till Christmas and a Happy New Year.
President Mr. George W. Bush after his welcome speech reportedly asked Japan’s Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso to stand as a top speaker and address monarachs, presidents, premiers, and other dinitaries in the dinner meeting held in the White House where leaders of 20 nations got together.
Yet, almost every pundit and journalist in Japan is wisely criticizing President Mr. George W. Bush and Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso, saying that the G20 Summit statement has really disappointed them.
Nonetheless, though the present disapproval rating of Mr. George W. Bush is lower than that of Richard Nixon, he has finally proved that the U.S. is still the sole superpower in this era by making a muster of G20 leaders to the White House.
Do not hold a U.S. President cheap.
That is all for today, but where were you?
Where were you, Barack?
A TV interview or a deal with Hillary?
Mar 11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
