    Congrats to Garfield on making it to the Final (LATE) That QB is good, a lot better than the one they had previously. Who knew a QB change can do so much

    You might be on to something here Peterson. While we wait for football to roll around again turn MVS into MVP, Mid Valley Politics. We can argue about immigration, the wall, racism. Would’nt that be grand?

    My message is not to convey endless love for China, but to hold Japan responsible for crimes many people aren’t aware of, crimes the Japanese still deny they committed. At least the Germans have owned responsibility for their atrocious behavior.

    That’s the first thing I looked at when I heard the story. Good riddance to Goldschmidt for the Dodger killer he always seemed to be. I’ll take 6 over 19. That alone should give us 10 more wins next year.

    Great trade for the Dodgers, they will only have to face Goldschmidt 6 times per year instead of 19.

    China seems to be doing pretty good. Expanding it’s holdings in business and in territory. Claiming waters not theirs as theirs and stealing tech secrets and reverse engineering everything they can. US owes them trillions of dollars. They are all over the SGV having anchor babies in private home-hotels and they probably are the mortgage holder on your house. Things change.

    When the United States dropped the world’s first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, it was merely an exclamation mark on the destruction of a war machine which claimed more lives than the Nazi holocaust. Japan’s aggression began in 1931, as the Empire of the Sun invaded and butchered the people of Manchuria. Estimates vary, but the total of Chinese killed in WWII is put at somewhere between 20 and 50 million. The savagery of the killings was without precedent, often accompanied by torture and extended death marches.
    So let us absolutely remember Pearl Harbor, but also bear in mind that Japan was into the business of invasion and slaughter long before Nazi Germany.
    From T. Peterson: Correct. Japan’s crimes started way before Pearl Harbor. They invaded Manchuria in ’31 basically because they wanted to unite all of Asia under one emperor. They needed to acquire more natural resources to execute this ideology and saw neighboring China (Manchuria) as a perfect opportunity to do so. The United States finally decided to challenge Japan’s actions in 1939 by pulling out of trade agreements. The bombing of Pearl Harbor was significant in that it led the United States into World War II. Good points on Japan’s early aggression.
