Japan finally allows immigration, we should allow more

Posted by John T. Reed on

I have noted a number of times that the far East seems to be the most racist place on earth, not the U.S. even though we keep beating ourselves up about it—or at least the Democrat business model beats us up about it. . I have cited the Japanese word gaijin which means foreigner but like the n-word means African-American. I have also cited the fact that immigration to Japan is near impossible. There are other bits of evidence like Japanese parents immediately searching to see if their child’s fiance has any Korean blood. Koreans are Untermencsh to Japanese. ....

GPS or a compass could save you in a wildfire

Posted by John T. Reed on

Upon further review of the escape from a wildfire question, some thoughts. There are at least three dangers: smoke blindness, heat, and lack of oxygen to breathe or poison gases. Many photos of the fires indicate no blindness due to smoke in many cases. Sometimes the smoke rises from the heat of the fire. Sometimes the wind direction takes it toward and sometimes away from you. Blinded by smoke But you can be blinded by smoke. One salvation might be GPS in your car, lap top, iPad, or your cell phone.

Posted by John T. Reed on

I also keep hearing that G.H.W Bush was a great father, the world’s best father.   Bull! And I said the same about Romney.   How so? How would I know better than their own children?   If you pay close attention to the children of G.H.W. Bush or Romney, you will hear the profound contradiction.

A reader below said NPV is the way to evaluate a stock, not P/E ratio..I will let my other readers decide—after I translate the terms into Plain english..NPV means net present value. I learned that in the CCIM course before I went to Harvard Business. We needed to understand it at Harvard to analyze some of our cases there. I felt sorry for my Harvard classmates who had no clue about time value of money (of which NPV is a subset—new MBA students there with no financial background have to attend a sort of pre-school on financial math and such...

Nuke the transgender dusky gopher frogs

Posted by John T. Reed on

In an 8-0 decision (before Kavanaugh was on the Court), the Supreme Court said Weyerhauser could provide additional information about why they should be allowed to harvest timber they own in Louisiana. Why is there any question about that?.Environmentalists claim such harvesting might call the extinction of the dusky gopher frog..The Endangered Species Act is one of the dumbest laws ever passed. It should be repealed. The environmentalists do not give a damn and about the environment or the dusky gopher frog. They are watermelons: green on the outside and red on the inside. All they care about is stopping big...
