Assume that Assassination power extends to US soil

Obama officials refuse to say if assassination power extends to US soil
February 22, 2013, The Guardian (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/feb/22/obama-brennan-paul-assassinations-filibuster

The Justice Department "white paper" purporting to authorize Obama's power to extrajudicially execute US citizens was leaked three weeks ago. Since then, the administration - including the president himself and his nominee to lead the CIA, John Brennan - has been repeatedly asked whether this authority extends to US soil, i.e., whether the president has the right to execute US citizens on US soil without charges. In each instance, they have refused to answer. Brennan has been asked the question several times as part of his confirmation process. Each time, he simply pretends that the question has not been asked, opting instead to address a completely different issue. It's really worth pausing to remind ourselves of how truly radical and just plainly unbelievable this all is. What's more extraordinary: that the US Senate is repeatedly asking the Obama White House whether the president has the power to secretly order US citizens on US soil executed without charges or due process, or whether the president and his administration refuse to answer? That this is the "controversy" surrounding the confirmation of the CIA director - and it's a very muted controversy at that - shows just how extreme the degradation of US political culture is.

Scooter Sales on the Rise

Japan Fiscal Year 2012 Motorcycle Production Reports

“February 11, 2013 - (JAMA, Edited by webBikeWorld) - The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) reported motorcycle production for calendar year 2012 (January 2012 to December 2012). Production was recorded as 595,327 units, compared with 639,187 units total recorded for the previous year, for a decrease of 43,860 units or 6.9%, and production decrease for two consecutive years.“

Could this be due to the increasing numbers of low cost scooters and ATV that are produced in China? Later in the article,

“Scooter sales continue to improve, with 19,208 sold in the first half of 2012, up from 18,198 for the same period in 2012 (+5.6%). Scooter sales have now surpassed off-road motorcycle sales and are climbing towards 10% of U.S. motorcycle sales totals.”
