START OF 2018 OPEN ENROLLMENT PERIOD

Ted Cruz

I've probably reposted way too much of this RawStory piece; as an apology, I'll ask folks to visit their site to watch the actual video clip:

Fox News host Chris Wallace cornered Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Sunday about his claim that President Barack Obama’s health care reform law had cost jobs.

The fact checkers say you’re wrong,” Wallace told Cruz. “Since that law went into effect, the unemployment rate fell from 9.9% to 5% as 13 million new jobs were created, and 16.3 million people who were previously uninsured now have coverage.”

“There are plenty of problems with Obamacare, but more people have jobs and health insurance,” the Fox News host added.

...“Wait,” Wallace interrupted. “There’s certainly no question that more people have jobs and more people health insurance.”

...The Texas senator became irritated as the Fox News host pressed for an answer to his original question.

(yes, this part is virtually identical to the Paul Ryan post from 12 days ago; that's kind of the point)

Japanese holdout

Japanese holdouts (残留日本兵 Zanryū nipponhei?, "remaining Japanese soldiers") or stragglers were Japanese soldiers in the Pacific Theatre who, after the August 1945 surrender of Japan ending World War II, either adamantly doubted the veracity of the formal surrender due to strong dogmatic or militaristic principles, or simply were not aware of it because communications had been cut off by the United States island hopping campaign.

They continued to fight the enemy forces, and later local police, for years after the war was over. Some Japanese holdouts volunteered during the First Indochina War and Indonesian War of Independence, to free Asian colonies from Western control despite these having once been colonial ambitions of Imperial Japan during World War II.
