Very nice write-up, for a wonderful vocalist...

"What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" is a seasonal favorite.

R.I.P. Nancy Wilson, elegant lady of song...

Republicans beginning to worry about Trump re-election

Another headline full of blarney...

But this has been the msm's goal since Trump was elected,

to make the voters change their minds...

Embattled Trump struggles to fill key White House post

Does it help to soothe TDS, to mull over such a blatant untruth?

Posted in: Japanese school explains why it won't let cold schoolgirl wear tights under her skirt See in context

When I first came to this country, boys wore tiny shorts in winter,

there were no bike helmets, Halloween was unheard of,

and girls wore short skirts hiked up even higher, with just knee socks...

Everything changes with time, and this "no tights rule" seems due for a phase-out...

A lot of Japanese public schools do not have proper heating, either.

If I am cold or hungry, my concentration goes towards fixing that, not learning...

Tokyo late night train sucks, no matter.

Posted in: Pence's wife champions art therapy in Japan See in context

Why not use the cultural art of Japan, for art therapy?

Etegami is a perfect way to incorporate art as therapy.

The Japanese "postcard art" is easily taught

and very theraputic.

Posted in: CNN sues Trump, demanding return of Acosta to White House See in context

All of this would go away if Trump had thicker skin.

Thicker skin? 

The President and his office are of the highest rank in the land,

and visitors are held to a decorum of respect.

CNN's reporter was derailing the press conference,

and his lack of professional regard for the President, in the WH, was off-putting.

It's not about the president needing to adjust his behavior to accommodate.

Come to the event with respect for the office, the country and the president,

or stay home.

Posted in: Trump under fire after cancelling WWI cemetery visit See in context

Yes we do - President Trump is a lazy idiot who doesn’t respect the military, the troops or their sacrifices. It’s that simple. Trump and the GOP don’t care about the troops.

President Trump respects the military by funding it and building up its resources.

It is better to show support through actions, than hollow photo-ops, and empty words.

In other words, he suffered a major lapse of judgement in running for the office of President at his advanced age. And he will be even older and unable to fulfill his duties at the time of the next Presidential election.

I challenge any man half his age, to keep up his schedule.

Trump under fire after cancelling WWI cemetery visit

Some of the perpetually offended, remained so.

I think POTUS is wearing the most attractive shade of blue cashmere.

Keep yourself in top condition, President Trump.

Posted in: Trump's media relationship frays more: CNN reporter's press pass suspended See in context

CNN reporter's press pass suspended

As he deserved...

He was being disruptive and disrespectful.

Contrary to popular belief, intelligent questions

do get answered.

No mention of the foreign reporters (one japanese) who Trump "couldn't understand" because of their accents.

He complains about other people, but can't help being disrespectful to others.

The reporter was unintelligible.

President Trump was not rude, he was truthful.

Japan treats U.S. unfairly on trade by not taking more American cars, Trump says

Trump is a deal maker.

Everything is leverage.

He'll get the deal he wants, one way, or another.

As for trash, the Japanese terrorists whose attacks were responsible for trash bins being removed,

were caught, convicted, and hanged.

Why are there still no trash bins anywhere, anymore?

Posted in: Who is to blame for America's toxic environment? See in context

Wow.

"Who is to blame for America's toxic environment?"

And then a picture of Trump.

Nope, the media is not unbalanced, or trying to lead people-

It is completely agenda free... /sarc.

Posted in: 17-year-old girl hit and killed by train in Saitama Pref See in context

The headline reads as if this were somehow the train driver's fault.

Suicides like this use innocent people, to carry it out.

It's a sad commentary on family life,

when the only indication of their child's troubles

comes in the form of damages from a train company.

They feel more comfortable making mistakes in front of a robot, because a robot has no judgement, a human quality...

A human teacher's voice has nuances that a robot would misconstrue...

Tell your story to Roseanne Barr.

None of you stood up for her.

This is dressed up as "fairness for the plight of women in the arts"

but it's just another complaint by liberal/progressive women

on the agenda of the current administration.

Posted in: China says internment camps are 'free vocational training' See in context

I don't remember ever hearing China brag about having great "diversity".

Since when has China tolerated anything they perceived as a threat to their control?

Muslims need to be in their own lands, where they can practice their religion without disturbance.

Expecting tolerance, is as futile as the Chinese expecting assimilation.

Posted in: Abe says sales tax to go ahead as planned in Oct 2019 See in context

This will be the nail in the coffin of growth, in this stagnant economy.

Every yen earned will be hung onto even tighter.

Salaries do not rise, cost of living and taxes go up.

Abe and the diet are never forced to endure the aftermath of their decisions.

Posted in: Kumamoto councilwoman who took baby to work kicked out of conference for using cough drop See in context

At first I thought, wha?

But upon considering, I can somewhat relate to the old codgers.

Listening to NHK emergency news translated to English by "professionals"

who mumble, speak incoherently, nasally, or in muffled, very low sound levels,

is infuriating.

This councilwoman seems to relish in being rude.

Posted in: Australian newspaper defies criticism, reprints Serena Williams cartoon See in context

This cartoon published by Australia's Herald Sun depicts Serena Williams as an irate, hulking, big-mouthed black woman jumping up and down on a broken racket.

This description is putting words, where the cartoon, hasn't.

Yes, she's portrayed as an irate Serena; hulking, big-mouthed and jumping up and down on a broken racket...

Putting "black woman" in the description, gives more than intended in the cartoon, imo.
