Slowly moving from “it never happened” to “you can’t prove it” to “nothing you can do about it”

Let me help!

“it never happened” , so, “you can’t prove it”, which means there's “nothing you can do about it”

Ehhh he'll be fine. I don't understand why his supporters are even slightly agitated by any of this.

He'll pardon himself, he'll go on to start up his ridiculous TV channel, and he'll clean up on speaking tours.

The best you can hope for is that he'll be remembered as the disgraced president.

-- oh wait, that ship has sailed.

Republicans signaled they are willing to let Trump spin out his election lawsuits and unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud for the next several weeks, until the states certify the elections by early December and the Electoral College meets Dec 14.

This is the heart of the problem, isn't it ?

It doesn't seem like it's true to me, therefore it isn't true.

It's so easy to fact check any of these issues for yourself, it takes so little effort, or time.

The amount of time it takes to read and respond to posts, let alone making multiple posts could be better spent looking into whatever contention you have for yourself.

skip to 1:35 if you're in a hurry

Its quite normal if its viewed as what it is- just assigned law enforcement enforcing the law against people who are breaking it.

@stormcrow

dig where yer coming from , but what if the federal officers are in unmarked cars, wearing masks and not displaying any identifying information , say like, their name, badge number, or department ?

I mean, I can go down the local market and buy a t-shirt that has "POLICE" screen printed on the back -- how would you tell the difference between me and the federal officers ?

if my home or business was in the direct path of a Black Lives Matter mob, then I'd welcome federal officers on my street to prevent my home or business from being looted and burned down by these hooligans.

the J-League, which once attracted luminaries such as Zico and Gary Lineker when it began in 1993 but has struggled to acquire big-name players in recent years.

That seems a harsh comment.

Isn't it more a case of signing the high profile foreign players in the early days of the J-League to attract punters, but now that it's established and the level of skill has improved in the local players, that they changed policy ?

Motoya not only penned a book calling the 1937 Nanjing massacre a lie but proudly displays it in guest rooms of his nationwide chain

Is he calling it a 'lie' , as in denying it occurred, or as in disputing the number of victims?

I haven't read his book and the above article isn't very clear about it. I've read in other coverage that Motoya wasn't denying it outright.

@Manuel

I don't understand why so many people here do this, but what I do notice is that there are many suicides on TV dramas here. Maybe the script writers should take notice of this and stop writing these events into their dramas.

It's unfathomable, but I have a suspicion that when Japanese insurance companies stop paying out on suicide, that there may be some change in the statistics.

Posted in: 4 Australian family members found after going missing while skiing in Nagano See in context

@TamaramaJan.

Coming snowboarding in Japan has become very fashionable in Australia, but the fact is that almost all of them have absolutely no contact or experience in snow in day to day life, apart from when they come here. Very high on stoke and enthusiasm, very low on experience in snow and mountains.

I don't know that it's fashionable, so much as affordable compared to the cost of skiing or boarding in Australia. In my experience, Aussie boarders are quite a bit more experienced in the snow than you might think.

Another point to consider here is that, even with a working knowledge of Japanese, there are an alarming number of resorts in Japan with a lax attitude to trail markings and safety precautions that may result in the average tourist being unsure of where the trail continues and what would be considered back country.

Posted in: Japan, Australia draw 1-1 in World Cup qualifier See in context

@edojin

I question the penalty that was called that produced the penalty shot. The Australian appeared to have fallen on his own ... and was not knocked down as ruled by the referee

There was clearly contact between Haraguchi's shoulder and the middle of Juric's back, it looked like an honest mistake from Haraguchi, but it's a penalty in any case.

I'm sure it's not difficult finding a clip of it online somewhere.

Posted in: Japan's soccer coach gets 'go-between' after smiling ban See in context

According to local media, Halilhodzic later issued a bizarre instruction to his players “not to be caught smiling”, apparently wanting them to show contrition.

I can see the logic behind it. That was a pretty embarrassing loss (referee shenanigans notwithstanding). He might have thought the players weren't taking the qualifiers seriously enough for his liking.

The judge, however, had strong words for plaintiff’s attorney Francis Malofiy, who is currently serving a three-month suspension for serious misconduct in a copyright case over Usher’s “Bad Girl.”

In the Led Zeppelin case, Klausner reprimanded Malofiy for some of his antics and frequently blocked his questions because of objections by Led Zeppelin lawyers.

“Throughout the course of litigation, plaintiff’s counsel demonstrated a tenuous grasp of legal ethics and a rudimentary understanding of courtroom decorum,” Klausner wrote.

The plaintiff got lucky on this one

We don't have any real stake of claim in South China Sea, apart from the trade routes our corporations share with the global market.
