Every U.S. embassy has CIA staff.
The bank name is Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ...
Ironically, Mitsubishi will probably be building and selling wind turbines as part of this deal.
There's nothing wrong with, though.
People everywhere, for all time, have been hoodwinked, lied to, maimed, killed and manipulated to murder others by "leaders" and politicians.
You do not need leaders. You need some liberty and freedom from "leaders."
But, I'm afraid humans will never be free from the tyranny of leaders.
Here is what's wrong with business today.
How can Groupon lose $81 million every three months and still be in business? Where is the money coming from to pay the bills?
I started a business a year ago and have been profitable, and grown consistently, every month. And yet, not a single bank will talk to me about a loan to expand.
I guess I need to lose some big money before they'll talk to me...
Your computers and other electronic devices can be confiscated without warrants or your "permission" within 100 miles of the U.S. border without cause or suspicion because you have no right to privacy, and the contents of your phone can be examined by a police officer during a traffic stop, but their computers are private and protected by people with guns?
Right. Got it.
In the past, people would never have tolerated this. They'd have risen up against it and the evil bastards who propagated it.
Now, we're just weak little serfs in the new feudalism.
The U.S. government has 'em beat -- they've had the TV, newspaper and movie industries in their back pocket for a generation.

Anyone else think the original post was written by "the writer," who is searching for some help with a story?
It reads like it was written by a woman and there is that troubling character development -- a "professional" writer, "everyone who knows her loves her" stuff.
If it's a real post, I think we all know that nothing says "I love you" more than having the guy whacked.
confiscate your laptop like the U.S. does at the border.
If the quality is anything like the rest of the crap being made in the USA now, you better stay away from those models.
No one is "winning" the battle against cancer in general.
The cancer rate is increasing, not decreasing, despite all of the money spent and gone over the past 50 years.
Were killing ourselves by consumption and exposure to unnatural and unnecessary chemicals produced by a highly profitable chemical cartel.
Look, even the mammogram industry (doctors, hospitals and manufacturers) has programed the public with the myth that mammograms saves lives.
After ten years of study, it's been shown to not be true.
More people are diagnosed, but no more people die.
Mammograms are painful and a waste of time and money in many cases, but the almighty dollar is mightier than the truth.
And breast cancer rates keep going up, no matter how many ribbons people wear and money they give.
"There is a natural urge to share the things you care about deeply."
Who says? Do you have any proof of this natural urge?
"Its a shame, especially since political discourse is so very essential to a healthy society."
Who says? Do you have any proof of this? The U.S. is obsessed with political discourse to the point of being a dysfunctional society.
I'm an ex-pat who's lived outside the U.S. for twenty years (this year). It's been fascinating to watch the transformation of America from a distance over the past decade.
It's fascinating, like watching a car crash in slow motion is fascinating.
I was working on contract with the dominant Japanese phone manufacturer that supplied NTT DoCoMo. The same concept (pipe dream) was discussed then and we all knew that simultaneous translation of Japanese (insert language) would be here about the same time we all get our flying cars.
Anyone who speaks Japanese knows the Grand Canyon-esque gap in context and meaning between spoken, informal Japanese and slang and idiom-ridden English.
You are leaping to some wrong conclusions.
I do not live in the U.S.
Apple did indeed force me to update.
My iPads froze and the only function available was to download the iOS upgrade.
I had no choice.
