And like a moth to the flame, with Trump proving every day that he was far worse than anyone could have ever imagined, I’ve decided to heed Victor Lazlo’s advice:
The last six months have been so utterly crazy, and there are just too many things to say, that I resolved to myself that I could not sit back on the sidelines any longer. As the author Steven King put it:
That this guy has his finger on the nuclear trigger is worse than any horror story I ever wrote.

You will notice some radical changes to the site, and that is by design in order to give it fresh start and also out of the sad and reluctant recognition that my dreams of getting back to Japan are fading along with the once bright future the United States of America had. Probably in a couple of years I will have to return to the Whining States of America to set some financial issues in order and then based on what happens between 2018-2020, move to my overseas lair and go back into foreign life again. I’m still fighting for both the land of my birth and my Asian dream, but one has to be practical too. Especially as the warning signs of recession will flash brighter in the coming months.
Besides the changes in look, there are some policy changes here on the site as well. I am not going to allow arrogant commenters like Joshos to dredge up ancient history and use the comment section to try gain some cheap thrill by thinking he can throw them into my face. I’ve more than paid for my sins and I have nothing, let me repeat nothing, to apologize for or feel guilty about. You have no idea whatsoever about the struggles I have been through. They are my struggles, not yours and you don’t get to dictate the terms of my life and career, anymore than some worthless excuse for a doctor did. Take your judgmental ass somewhere else.
And that, boys and girls, is why comments are going to be moderated.
For the next month or so, the old posts are going to be unavailable, because I have to work with technical issues from this new install. I will do my best to bring them back.
It’s been an interesting six months for me personally, but they could have been a lot better without the Orange Monster in the White House. Here at Far East Cynic HQ we will do our part to make sure his residence there is short and painful
It’s good to be back.
” I’m still here you greasy bastards!”
