Democrats need people to be miserable victims with piss-poor attitudes who blame others for all their woes. Happy people with positive attitudes and the drive to steer their own lives don't vote for Democrats.

If there is/was no law on the books that they broke, then the government would be knowingly surrendering them to what amounts to a kangaroo court.

That's not what extradition treaties are for.

Oh, darn. I missed it- was this what I was supposed to be all OUTRAGED!!!! about yesterday?

I don't know much about KK, but I'm pretty sure she's only famous for being some rich lady who prances around on private jets and being married to a rapper. As far as I know, she can't sing or dance or act in movies, so this type of stuff is why she's famous. Then why the outrage?

Although now that I think about it,I guess I do feel a bit like she's rubbing my nose in my own poverty. When I take my family to Europe on vacation, we travel economy class because business class is a bit over our budget and we rent the more basic model of Mercedes because we can't afford to rent the big V-8 model. Being so deprived does sting a bit more when I am forced against my will to scroll endlessly through Kim Kardashian's Instagram page, so perhaps she shouldn't post these things because they hurt my feelings.

That's a brave "foreign student" who got involved...

I once witnessed a jumper do the Fosbury Flop off the 5th-story exterior stairwell of an apartment block in Fukushima City right as I was walking past. I was OUT; I hit the bricks and took right off. I didn't want anything to do with being a gaijin near a Japanese death that occurred by foul play.

Posted in: Japan to use cyberattack countermeasures to protect Tokyo Olympics See in context

Russia is like the mean kid with dirty clothes and a rat tail who nobody really wants on their kickball team, so he just goes on the other side of the fence and throws rocks and handfuls of mud over at the kids playing the game.

There isn't really an apparent strategy for Russia other than to upset the status quo. And once they do, then what? Corner the global markets in tin ore and turnips? Their economy is smaller than Italy's. Sure they've got oil and gas, but so does Venezuela.

I think they're just swinging their dongs around because they can, because "they have nukes!"... and mostly, because they're bitter about losing the Cold War.

Is there any precedent for reinterment in Shinto?

It seems this entire pickle that every PM finds himself in could simply end if they'd just 'move' the several dozen war criminals someplace else, freeing the other millions of souls there to be honored uncontroversially.

Posted in: Around the world, freedom is in retreat and tyranny is on the rise under cover of COVID-19. Do you agree? See in context

I have noticed that the most left-leaning towns and cities have issued the most arbitrary and draconian regulations. Seems like they've used the pandemic as an excuse for a bit of a power grab, or at least for turning up the heat on the pot of water we're all bobbing around in. Eye-opening, really.

Gavin McInnes explains how he founded the men's club, Proud Boys, and how the media misrepresents them as a group:

Trump is a nincompoop. But the Proud Boys aren't "white supremacists". They're patriots who don't want their cities destroyed and their country run though by radical leftists.

Posted in: Why do you think billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates, whose foundation has plowed billions of dollars into making vaccines against diseases like polio, malaria and HIV, is a regular target for fringe groups and anti-vaxxers accusing him of benefiting from vaccination or even using them for harm. See in context

Probably for the same reason most conspiracy theories exist:

Because there are *millions of men in their 30s in this country (the US) that still live with their parents either in the basement, above the garage, or in their childhood bedrooms, who deliver pizzas or drive for UBER, typically in a 20-year old Buick they inherited after a grandparent died. These men are bitter about the successes their peer have in life (careers, families, homes), and rather than self-reflect on the mess that is their own lives, they seek to make sense of the chaos of the world by imagining things.

a short-form way to refer to these men is simply "losers"

Posted in: 16-year-old boy arrested for cutting cage wire mesh at zoo, allowing 70 monkeys to escape See in context

Amazing. Easily the best headline I've seen here in ages.

Too bad the monkeys didn't find their way into the hills.

When I lived in southern Akita years ago, a monkey came down from the hills in Yokote, ran into some little granny's yaoyasan vegetable market, and went bananas flipping all the tables over and tossing fruit all into the street. He grabbed an armful of mikans and hit the bricks. It made all the local papers.

My old man, gone some 25 winters now, would be rolling in his grave if he saw the state of our national affairs at present; and yet he's STILL likely voting for Biden.

Posted in: Suga holds talks with IOC chief, Koike about Olympics See in context

I just don't understand why an accomplished country would go so bananas to get the Olympics in the first place. To build a bunch of junk that's used once and then just sits there.

Montreal has some big chunk of crap UFO-looking thing left over from an Olympics in the '80s. It's absolutely massive. They have little kids' soccer games in there or whatever, but otherwise the city is stuck with the bill of maintaining an empty monstrosity.

My home state of Massachusetts was in the running for the Games, and when it won the bid, we the people put up such a racket telling them to go pound sand that they gave up and went elsewhere.

Japan seems to try so hard to be noticed by the rest of the world. But so quick to shut it out. It's odd.

Depends if Trump wins again.

If he does, it will be the Victim Olympics.

And wait until some Western SJW's get wind of the plight of the Ainu. You can expect to see some kind of 'performance' surrounding that. ...Not from any actual Ainu, mind you, but from someone from a Commonwealth country who looks like they wouldn't get followed around in a Williams & Sonoma.

I think what's great about this, as a casual observer anyway, is that Suga is a totally self-made man.

Do any political trivia buffs know how many other postwar PM's were not elevated in their political careers by their family connections?
