Welcome to my first attempt at creating a blog.
Here I am going to attempt to locate, post and comment on the best (or at least most relevant) news and commentary that I can find on the world political situation — as viewed from my perspective at the in the outskirts of West Tokyo. Because I have lived in Japan for 25 years, while remaining true to my American roots and values, I hope to provide a unique window into the Japanese mindset, and give readers an opportunity to experience politics and social news from the American-Asian viewpoint.
My political philosophy is unabashedly Conservative, not Republican, although I do stray into Libertarian territory on some issues.
It’s going to take me a while to get all the buttons and switches figured out here. But this will do for my first post!
