YES! Spread the word!

Second-hand smoke belongs in smoking cubicles.

This is a very 'sick' group of .. 'people'. These people know NOTHING besides destroying others' lives, hopes and dreams. They live for destruction, despair and death.

As long as they are out and about on this planet there will be no peace or justice for Afghan civilians and especially girls/women.

Posted in: NRA sues San Francisco over 'terrorist organization' label See in context

Those who feel that they and every Tom, Dick and Harry must own a gun (game hunters aside) should get a mental exam of some sort. The NRA has blood on its hands and supporting this organization blindly is a real shame if not, 'mental'. IF you really believe owning a gun is an absolute must for the sake of personal protection then you should go through a respectable licensing system. This never-ending cycle of people 'losing it' or those who just shoot people, innocent people, for fun has to end. Supporting the NRA is not helping in ANY shape or form. Find a different hobby please.

I hope other US cities follow San Francisco's lead on this. Sincerely hope so.

It is very important to have good relationships with neighbors. That is why the United Northeast Asia is such an urgent matter.

Yup. Please tell that to both South and North Korea.

Sir Kim,

Yes, your missiles are scary.

Yes, I worry about your ability to cause mass destruction to your neighbors.

But, know that you would most probably be responsible for 'eradicating' your own people by doing so. YOU would lose, BIG TIME.

Posted in: Mother gets suspended sentence for complicity in fatal abuse of daughter See in context

The judge needs to do some "reflecting" as well. I understand the mother too was abused and had mental issues so in a way she is also a victim. So, how about the father who did all these evil things to his daughter? In order to do those torturous acts one must be mentally unstable and most probably mentally "ill" as well. Giving the mother a slap on the wrist is not enough. But, if the judge gives the father a similar sentence then this judge will deserve a slap on the face to begin with.

And don't even start with the toilet business because the number of Japanese men who don't wash their hands after using is crazy. And that includes the traps as well as the urinals. I see "manner" posters everywhere in the train system but nothing about washing your hands. Why is that?

Excellent point. Unfortunately, for some very odd reason it seems to be primarily a male issue. Perhaps in their elementary ages they didn't like washing hands with cold water in cold schools. Seeing adults walking out of restrooms after doing their business is disgusting and rude to everyone else.

Posted in: Japan passes bill requiring microchipping of pets to reduce strays See in context

Direct sales between breeders and owners of protected species of Japanese dogs, including Shiba and Akita dogs, are not subject to the new rules.

Discrimination, for dogs? Why are these species so special? Why do owners of 'foreign' breeds need it while those of Japanese breeds don't?

AM I missing something here?

Mr. Muilenburg, please resign.

You are most definitely not the right person to be in charge of such an important company whose products' safety is of utmost priority rather than just having a well versed and shrewd businessman at the helm. Your priorities are in the wrong order.

Posted in: Coming soon to China: the car of the future See in context

"Car manufacturers will no longer provide customers with cars via a one-time sale, but rather with a brand that connects them to the users on a daily basis through the mobility services they offer,"

I hope that day never comes. Forcing the world to share cars and make cars into public transportation like buses and trains is not my vision of the ideal future of mobility.

Please keep thinking of ways to allow people to have choices rather than a 'one size fits all' mentality.

Countries can cede territory as a gift of friendship. That is why I believe Northeast Asia is one and will become one, given sufficient time.

And which countries can cede territory as a gift of friendship..?Oh, I know, I know!! Each and every one EXCEPT for almighty C H I N A. I would say dream on but I can't because that just simply sounds like a nightmare.

Northeast Asia is one nation, as simple as that.

Y Okitsu, actually Northeast Asia is even closer than one nation, it is one big family, as simple as that. For example, there are no psychological and physiological barriers for marriage among Northeast Asians, and genetically 100% compatible.

Wow. And which nation is this "one" nation? Let me guess, The People's Republic of China?! Of course that's what you mean and what 'some' Chinese government officials would want the world to believe.

Let me guess..the prosecution is not happy and will find one more thing to convict him with so that they can re-arrest him. I don't know but, it's the first thing that came to mind.

Posted in: Man gets 12-year prison term in appeal trial for confining girl See in context

It befuddles the mind. Haven't there been less jail time given for murderers in recent cases? People who murder should automatically get life in prison (unless in self defense). There should be some 'reward' for not taking the life of a human. Perhaps 5 years per day of abucted time of the victim..?

IF 10 years is max in this case then 10 years is what these people should be getting. What on earth are these judges thinking?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? These men ALL participated in a killing if an innocent human life and then they ALL participated in hiding their crime.

"Publicly start charging negligent "employees", put them in jail, fire them, and let everyone know in the process that this will NOT be tolerated anymore, and changes will occur.."

Yup. This should be at the very least a first step and an absolutely necessary one. Where is the accountability?

Unfortunately, to me this feels more like a PR stunt than a meaningful effort to truly help these children in these abusive situations.

JeffLee @07:03am today

This news reporting is irresponsible. Disclosing the names would alert the industry and public that might have have used the same products or services, putting them at risk.

Precisely. The public is always left in the dark here from all sorts of frauds and criminal acts. We are NEVER informed of the REAL facts. What gives?!?

Disgraceful parents, disgraceful government 'officials' and disgraceful 'education' board. Shame on all of them.

How can anyone in their right mind disagree with this comment?!? Every single adult in this young person's life failed her. Yes, the gov. 'officials' failed her. Yes, the board of education really failed her and yes, her sick-minded 'parents' really, really failed this innocent child.

Posted in: As nations turn on Maduro, Venezuelan leader parades with military See in context

Unfortunately the way repressive regimes work is they manage to hold "elections" in which the outcome is predetermined and the peoples' votes just a charade. I wonder when Chavez was in power whether he was rightfully the winner or were the circumstances arranged as to make sure there wasn't a clear and true opponent to vote for. Mr. Putin is a perfect example. Of course he stands up for this "President". These low-life dictators really know how to look out for each other. And, it's a bit disheartening to see that they have such a following beyond their borders as well. We, members of the "free world", should be careful what we wish for.

Posted in: Japan to seek high-level talks with N Korea in Sweden See in context


Big wrong. Why would Japan have to meet Korea in Sweden, half world away ? Abe can go to China and meet Koreans anywhere in the Northeast.

Obviously Japan needs to be in NEUTRAL territory to speak frankly with N.Korea. China is obviously not neutral, far from it.
