What are the real reasons behind the United State’s involvment in the domestic politics of S. Sudan?

Is CIA working behind closed doors to over turn the current S. Sudan government because Obama wasn’t impressed by the current leadership?

Or was it because the current government didn’t give a damn about what America wants?

Is the U.S. doing the necessary background work to ‘build a nation’ in the African continent?

Is Obama starting another front to divert world’s attention away from his ‘doomed from the start’ Iran nuclear policy? Is Obama tired of people calling him out on his failed Middle East foreign policy?’ Is Obama picking on S. Sudan because it, unlike ISIS, is an easy target to deal with?

The American peoole have absolutely no say on how America’s president conducts his foreign policy. Countries such as China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Phillippine, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel and a few others in central America have suffered from America’s involvement in the past. The negative impact on these countries have been deep and painful. American people also suffer through high national debt, death to thousands of Amirucan soldiers and direct attackS big and small on American soil.

When will American people wake up and make U.S. presidents, past and present, accountable for his decisions and actions in the office?

While we are at it, let’s lump the Senators and Congressmen and congress women accountable for their votes in the office?

As of now, tlAmerican presidents did what they did and they always get away from their bad judgements. American people just

This is simply not fair. The status quote must be changed.

Is S. Sudan the first in the African continent?

Washington D.C. is no. 1 August 29, 2015

Yeah, no. 1 in traffic congestion in the entire U.S. of A.

How is that for beating L.A. and San Fran to claim the dubious honor?

I have never like to drive in D.C. and bad traffic is on top of the list. Cops everywhere is the next. They will give you a ticket for any traffic violation on the book. The capital city depends on this revenue to get by.

The top ten reasons for the no. 1 title are;
1.   Gobs upon gobs of tourists in the summer, fall, winter, and spring. They take their time moving from one side of a street to the next;
2.   Very few left turn lanes even on major streets;
3.   One way traffic in the center of the city;
4.   Traffic circles;
5.   Diagonally crisscrossed streets overlapping a East-West/North-South grid;
6.   Double parked delivery trucks at any time of the day and at anywhere they like;
7.   Closed streets and detours for protestors, parades and VIPs;
8.   Slow moving taxis on the lookout for a fare;
9.   Too many traffic lights and many of them not synced;
10.   Out of state cars drop tourists off then move slowly looking for free parking spots on the street.

Obama handed nuclear weapons to Iran August 27, 2015

A few years later, American people will wake up to the fact that Obama allowed Iran’s Revolutionary Guard to investigate Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal he engineered as the over riding factor which will make Iran a country with nuclear weapons.

This was one of the four secret deals that Obama and Kerry didn’t tell American people about when the deal was signed. It was the reason Iran agreed to the deal because America will never find out the truth. 

When it does, which will not take 15 years, it will be too late.

Yes, the path for military confrontation has been set. The seeds for a war has been planted.

Israel will carry out the targeted attack unilaterally. America will have no option but to join the fight because Iran has vowed repeatedly to wipe Israel from the world map and defeat the worst infidel in the world, the United States.

Yet, Obama chose to talk to Iran and appeased the country with a deal Iran couldn’t refuse. He and other democrats called it diplomacy but it was acturally selling American people short and handed America to Iran on a siliver plate.

Americans are naive and complacent.

This time it will be no different. But the negative consequence of Obama’s action will be incalculable. It will definitely accelerate America’s downfall.

Neyla, Reston Town Center August 27, 2015

It used to be Paolo’s which occupied this prime location (next to the Fountain) in Reston Town Center for many years. We’ve been to Paolo’s once but wasn’t very impressed by its food even though the ambiance and service were great.

We came to Reston Town Center earlier this summer and noticed the change of ownership at this location to Neyla which was a surprise to us. The town center was always crowded with people when we visited here. New office and appartment buildings and new restaurants were added on a robust pace. Additionally, the restaurants here seemed to do great business at all times. However, there were some notable failures such as Uno’s, Paolo’s and Macaroni Grill. I guess that high rent in this popular place, change of consumers’ taste, increasing food cost and failed business model forced the owners to shut their operations.

We came back to Reston TC mid-August and had a pleasant lunch at Neyla.

The service was efficient. Our waiter was very helpful. The host was courteous. The owner (I assumed he’s the owner) stopped by and chat. The food we ordered had heavy Mediterranean influence: olive oil, lemon juice, vegetables, herbs, bread and seafood.

We had Roasted Eggplant with yogurt and raisins,

stuffed mussels with rice, currants, pine nuts and tomato.

We also shared a pita wrap with heavily seasoned beef, roasted tomato, parsley and red onion.

The Sauvignon Blanc from Chili was a bit on the high side but the wine was fruity, crispy and refreshing.

All in all, it was delightful and we will be back to try more dishes soon.

臺灣的行政院國發會在八月初發表了一份「(台灣)民眾對當前生活品質的看法」的民意調查。

調查說:

1. 82.1%的台灣人對自己的生活品質感到滿意,

2. 70.6%的台灣人對家裡經濟狀況感到滿意。

你相信不相信?

我猜調查員沒有打電話給22K的人吧!

台灣人崇美是個不爭的事實,可是我覺得台灣人更崇日。如果你不相信,請問台北街上和夜市那麽多日本字的廣告是寫給誰看的?請問新北投溫泉旅館的日本裝飾和高價的日本套餐是爲誰準備的?

可是誰能想像的到,台北市政府所屬的一家公眾公司竟然會用日本成人電影明星做廣告?

這家公司就是台北的悠遊卡公司。如果你不知道悠遊卡是幹嘛的,讓我告訴你:悠遊卡是台北市民從老到小拿來坐公共汽車和火車用的。

不知道悠遊卡公司老闆的身上哪根筋沒長正,竟然異想天開用日本成人電影明星的相片做悠遊卡的封面。

請問:是日本成人電影明星給悠遊卡公司做廣告還是悠遊卡公司給日本成人電影明星做廣告?

這幾天台灣的報紙,電視和網路想必有新聞節目採訪和詳細的報道。台灣的中,小學生應該都知道這位日本電影明星是誰了。如果他們要看這位電影明星演的電影,你說他們的爸爸媽媽應該怪誰呢?

唉,世風日下 人心不古。成人電影明星已經變成台灣人的常用語了。

I talked about America is sinking fast economically and in many key areas such as education and infrastructure.

It turns out that some part of America is sink lietrally.

Fresno California has been a paradise for immigrants, legal and illegal alike, and well-paid people working for high tech companies.

Well, Fresno is sinking fast.

So, if you move to Fresno, watch out what’s happening down below.

Don’t buy a house in Fresno because it will soon crack open as it sinks.

California running low on water August 21, 2015

Farmers are suffering now. They can’t make enough money to pay for water.

The citizens are facing water restrictions because there isn’t enough water to go around the blocks.

Oil companies which use water for thermal recovery may soon find water cost too high to continue operations in central valley region.

Will the high tech companies be next in a few years because people may not want to live in California any more?

Hmmm…., many tech companies are suffering already because their stocks are in bear market territory this week. Their valuations are simply too high to

The time has come. Google and Yahoo’s San Fran buses will have fewer riders if NASDAQ continues its downward spiral in coming weeks and months.

屏東竹田鄉「豆油伯」的醬油非常有名。

屏東十大伴手禮。

全國百大榮銜。

店舖熱銷;$320元/瓶。

「豆油伯」醬油的老闆錢賺的不亦樂乎。In English, we call this “making money hand over fist。”

可是,

「豆油伯」醬油的老闆嫌錢賺的不夠。

那怎麼辦呢?

金蘭醬油:便宜,只要 $50元/瓶。

「豆油伯」醬油的老闆拿一些金蘭醬油裝在「豆油伯」的醬油瓶裏。然後貼上「豆油伯」醤油的商標,以 $320/瓶來賣。

How to make money in Taiwan easily

這一下,「豆油伯」醬油的老闆錢賺的更是不亦樂乎。

不過,「豆油伯」醬油的老闆說“他們工廠維修,所以向金蘭醬油進貨,並不是故意偷工減料閉着眼睛賺錢的。

先前臺灣有餿水油,地溝油和黑心油。現在還有「豆油伯+金蘭」油。
