Clearly not, given the repeated talk of silver spoon inheritance and dismissing the poor and any attempts to give them the same breaks the elite have.

Sorry, I do. Had enough years working and dealing with mooches, they radicals hate us, but they need us for a job.

Please read it again, I can't make it any simpler.

That’s quite alright.

I'm sure you're not deliberately trying to be the Sheriff of Nottingham, but Alan Rickman would have been proud.

What?

Such a dreadful mishmash of misquotes and biblical justifications. You are aware that socialism goes back to ancient Greece and the Bible?

I’m sorry, but back in those days we had Gladiators fighting and killing each other, we don’t do that now, so your attempted point is invalid.

Trump's victory is a slap in the face for the majority of working class and marginalised Americans. And yet, still, there is support for it, from the elitists.

And yet, when it comes to socialism, they’d rather go with Trump, given the high regulations and inability to create jobs.

Who is doing the jishuku? Pierre Taki? Surely not. It is a voluntary action and means pulling in your head and lying low for a bit till the flak is over. In this case perhaps the companies are doing Jishuku and he is getting the fallout from them, but to most people this simply looks like they are pulling the plug on him, not much jishuku about it at all! Correct me if I am wrong here.

and he'll be sitting but working harder than ever in the White House for another 4 years.

He'll be tweeting and golfing harder than ever, you mean.

Read it and weep Trumpers - The Trump Crime Family is still the subject of 10 separate criminal investigations. 

Ok and? If Mueller with all of his vast and unlimited resources and No mandate couldn’t find anything, then Nadler and Sawfish won’t either.

You ignored the gorilla in the room - the SD NY Attorney - who has a mandate much larger than Mueller - and who Mueller handed off crimes he identified that didn't match his mandate. You know, "Individual -1", the Trump Org and campaign finance violations, fraud as in inflating wealth for foreign loans, etc., etc....

No pardons for those.

By 2020 he'll be sitting in a cell next to fellow New York Crime Boss, now fellow Inmate, John Gotti...

Yeah, sure. ROFL! Hold on to that dream and also, Gotti died 2002

Gotti will be haunting the cell next to Donnie - they can commiserate over "rat" stories...

But there's hope - maybe Biden will agree to trade Donnie to Russia in exchange for Edward Snowden...

Loved trigonometry and calculus. We used trig in our surveying class which meant we went into the local countryside for the lesson, usually all of Friday afternoon.

—I believe the rich will learn lessons from decades of putting themselves first.

That has been said for over 2000 years.

A clever dig against Jesus Christ and selflessness.

Stupid is as stupid does! Most of the employees have already relocated to central Tokyo for their jobs. Now, the government expects them to relocate again or travel extended distances. Also, there is nobody in the semi-rural areas to work for the companies if their staff don’t relocate.

Just went to a conference in the US. The state of tech industry in Japan is really sad, after talking to many Japanese developers, I feel that most just wait and see what the US comes up with and try to "imitate". The worst part is they complain when the US has "nothing" to offer from their point of view. Truly a bunch of entitled seishains who think "not doing anything" means "not making mistakes", which means you're "good" ... truly sad.

I think it was someone evaluating Hitler’s paintings for admission to art school who said he would have made a fine draughtsman. I suspect Adolf did well in trig.

It’s interesting how there are no comments on this thread after 5 hours or so. I guess people are just used to reading about some lion killing a family member. Move along folks! Nothing new to see here!

Har! No, lincoln, on Nov 3, 2020 Trump is going to win in a landslide both in the Electoral College and the national popular vote despite California, which is a 2020 write-off, and he'll be sitting but working harder than ever in the White House for another 4 years. He's going to win Virginia and Minnesota and possibly New York.

I kind of agree with it, it's a good message to people that this kind of activity is not tolerated, especially to the younger folks who may look up to them as role models.

It sends a message that we're all human and occasionally, we need forms of escapism. As long as he's not harming anyone, it's not the end of the world.

This "he wasn't harming anyone" claim is total nonsense.

By his purchase and use of cocaine, he contributed to the death and destruction that the "cocaine business" wreaks on so many young lives.

If you knowingly purchase products from a business that capitalizes on addiction, death, and the shattering of lives, then you are very much a part of the problem.

You may assuage your conscience by claiming you're "not hurting anyone" -- but at least indirectly, that is exactly what you are doing.

Drugs like cocaine kill people. They destroy people's lives. Anyone who is involved in any way with cocaine -- by purchasing it as a user, selling it as a dealer, whatever -- contributes to that death and destruction.

Only stuff that's been cut with inferior and dangerous products. I'm no fan of cocaine but let's be honest here. If drugs are legalized, you have an end to the pushers and cartels and you have less chance of death and destruction with quality product.

Because Japanese people have access to bomb making materials? Right!

BTW, one more thing, your attitude is called, "heiwa boke". You seem to think Japan has no crime, no problems, and filled with sane, peace loving people, dancing around the campfire singing songs!

Wake up!

So, you can't reply to this - Why on earth would you want the NZ terrorist to receive the same attention and notorious acclaim as Hitler? What would it achieve? Genuine question.

I'd rather be an idiot than an apologist for terrorism, oh yes.

The treatment of this guy is just over the top. He is a contributing member of society, created some music people love, not hurt anybody

Drugs like cocaine kill people. They destroy people's lives. Anyone who is involved in any way with cocaine -- by purchasing it as a user, selling it as a dealer, whatever -- contributes to that death and destruction.

So in that sense, no, we cannot say he did "not hurt anybody."

Let's not forget the people who made threats against a local elementary school, regarding their sports day activities, forcing the school to cancel them because of it.

Japan is NOT immune from threats like these, and it doesnt take a genius to make a bomb

Because Japanese people have access to bomb making materials? Right!

It's pure ignorance to think otherwise. Anyone, and I mean literally ANYONE that thinks otherwise is choosing to be ignorant and is either drinking the kool aid or smoking some pretty strong guano!

The US government said clearly. We don't have allies we have satellites and satellites do what we order. If satellites don't obey we show the big stick. Not exactly verbatim but referring to the U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt's foreign policy: "speak softly and carry a big stick, you will go far."

So bass, you're ok with getting rid of police and fire departments, the interstate highway system, and the United States Armed Forces? All of which are predicated on socialist ideas... robbing Peter to pay Paul...

No, I’m from California, I grew up with these nutjobs.

Clearly not, given the repeated talk of silver spoon inheritance and dismissing the poor and any attempts to give them the same breaks the elite have.

Please read it again, I can't make it any simpler.

Without the rich, the poor would have nothing to steal.

I'm sure you're not deliberately trying to be the Sheriff of Nottingham, but Alan Rickman would have been proud.

but they still think robbing Paul to give to Peter is the only real solution to happiness and prosperity or until they’ve spent someone else’s money.

In the U.S. a teacher makes around $59k a year (we entrust the education of our next generation and children to them). An emergency room doctor makes between $240K and $330K a year (we entrust our life to them).

A guy hitting a ball is going to make around $35 Million per year.

I am for free markets and capitalism (and I am a liberal) but it appears to me that the U.S. values have gone completely out of whack!
