@Andrew

just a guess the author(s) are Democrat supporters

You mean the people surveyed are Democrat supporters? People who dislike Trump aren't automatically Democrats you know. They are just people who dislike Trump.

Just 7 percent of Spanish, 9 percent of French and 10 percent of Germans said they had confidence in Trump's leadership. In 20 of the 25 countries surveyed, a majority said they had no confidence in Trump.

So how would a Republican 'author' spin these numbers?

I think Japanese are the worst I’ve seen for not stopping at pedestrian crossings. They don’t seem to think they have to stop.

I agree on the whole. I'd be interested to know if the priority rule is the same as in the UK. At Zebra Crossings there drivers MUST stop when someone has moved onto the crossing. Here I've seen one lane stop whilst cars in the other lane keep whizzing through.

At least when she calm down,she reported her crime.

But Matsubara didn't, he fled and was pinched later only thanks to video surveillance.

We have no right to judge them.

By the powers invested in me by internet anonymity and a couple of glasses of Merlot I proclaim them GUILTY as rumoured.

I've lost count of the amount of times I've almost been bounced off the bonnet of a car on even well lit crossings due to some driver trying to get a jump on the oncoming traffic. At night I always carry a powerful torch to flash them, and something small but chunky to throw at their car if they run over my toes.

Fortunately in Japan as in most countries the cops treat hit and run offenses very seriously. This Matsubara chap can expect little mercy.

マイブーム (my current interest) still causes a crashing rage in my chest, as does insipid car advertising nonsense such as ライフステージ (life stage). That said, I'm a big fan of ワンパターン (repetitive). Still takes me about 5 minutes to read anything in katakana though.

because they new he was passive about everything, like....oh, Crimea.

Trump certainly wasn't passive though, took all his might to grab his ankles when he met Vlad.

Yes, compared to the appeasement and how he went on an apology tour throughout the Middle East and it still didn't keep our ambassador from being murdered.

Some people aren't happy unless their army is getting bogged down & slaughtered somewhere every generation.

They were laughing because they, like everyone else, recognize a blowhard when they see one.

Don't know, don't care. 

Not knowing and not caring are important traits for Trump supporters. Could also add ‘not thinking’ to them too.

maybe they realize it and we’re laughing how also made things changed for the better since he took office compared to what they were under Obama.

You've even started to sound like Trump now bass, with your delusions, inarticulacy and private jets.

"So the fake news said people laughed at President Trump. They didn't laugh at me. People had a good time with me. We were doing it together. We had a good time. They respect what I've done."

Sure Donny, Sure. Keeping pretending that everyone likes you, whatever it takes to preserve those last slivers of sanity.

I thought Trump handled the mocking laughter about as well as could have been expected really. Was probably surprised that people off-message hadn't already been thrown out of the rally. My guess is when he get's back to watching Fox for most of the day he'll start getting back into character, then start making mental voodoo dolls, then he'll start stabbing 'em on twitter.

Posted in: China says it can't hold US trade talks with 'knife to the throat' See in context

So he totally ignored the economy for 8 entire years then did something the last week he was in office that is just paying off now? It’s ridiculous. Give it up.

You're right Black, that is ridiculous. He presided over a steadily growing economy for almost his entire two terms. But he didn't have to lie about the statistics, or boast that it was all his own doing. It's called 'doing your job'. So I'll give it up if you get a grip.

Obama was so smart he designed his economic plan to show growth only 2 years after he was out of office.

I'll try a third time. Was there economic growth when Obama was President, or are you making things up again?

Posted in: China says it can't hold US trade talks with 'knife to the throat' See in context

Then tell me how Obama gets credit for an ecomony now when he was elected nearly 10 years ago?

But he didn't leave office 10 years ago, did he? Is it ridiculous to consider that the policies of a previous government may have some effect after that government has left? Why are you so obsessed with one man claiming complete and total credit for an entire nation's effort?

Obama was so smart he designed his economic plan to show growth only 2 years after he was out of office.

Let me ask you again; is this statement true?

How does Trump keep this production line of crooks, liars, idiots and sexual predators going? It's a remarkable talent to be able to sniff out such losers and then give them a job.

Posted in: China accuses U.S. of 'trade bullyism' as both sides impose fresh tariffs See in context

The US economic system has withstood the test of time and beaten all others.

So said the Babylonians, the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Ottomans, the Spanish, the British, the Japanese to name a few.

and will never reach the US level because the government does not reflect minority opinions that lead to better decisions.

Ah yes, those famously harmonious American ethnic relations.

For better or (probably) worse, it's only a matter of time before China becomes the most powerful nation on earth

Folk were doing this back in the 80's in Britain when much of the country changed from the old red telephone boxes. And I'm sure the idea wasn't even original back then. Somebody from there should sue this Yamamoto chap.

Posted in: The road to 2020: Residents, volunteers alike can expect higher costs, negligible compensation See in context

A fleet of some 6,000 motor vehicles will be used to transport the athletes and other personnel and it's entirely likely expressway access gates will be closed to ordinary vehicular traffic while the Olympians are being moved about.

Good Lord! Do they really need 6000 vehicles? There were 11,000 athletes at Rio, that amount of cars doesn't make sense. The cynic in me thinks lots of those vehicles will be used to shuttle the suits about town.

And to add insult to injury, the authorities are even pondering the imposition of restrictions on internet shopping in order to hold down the number of delivery vehicles.

Are we living in China??

As for international waters, any nation is free to catch marine resources in them. 

By the same logic, any nation would be free to dump nuclear waste in international waters. Fortunately most nations favour the freedom to protect rather than destroy. Japan does not.

Japan should do exactly what Iceland and Norway do; ignore a non entity like Australia and hunt anyway!

'The Peeping' seems to have an irrational dislike for Australia. Unfortunately for you they are a wealthy, progressive nation who don't succumb to Japan's bribery. Do you also consider Europe & The USA to be non-entities, as they also oppose the slaughter?

Without opposition from abroad Japanese whalers may find it hard to keep up the charade when they are asked by the public to stop draining their taxes.

Posted in: Japan on brink of IWC pullout after commercial whaling comeback blocked See in context

Australia talks a lot, Japan pays almost double of what Australia does, in order to allow Australia to freely run their mouth.

Pay as much as you want, I'm afraid it won't silence dissenting voices (except places like Laos, Cambodia, Nicaragua)

Japan should quit the organisation; let's see then how much and how loud Australia will carry on talking.

If you are thinking that quitting will end opposition to commercial whaling then you are quite mistaken. The rest of the world is moving towards increased marine conservation, Japan is going the other way.

Posted in: Russians in UK spy case say they wanted to see cathedral; Britain calls it lies See in context

Getting both to appear the same in the same hall framed exactly the same with the same exposure and same reflections and the same lens dirt took some real expert work.

They aren't, look again. Even Putin TV has given up on this line of conspiracy.

This proves the shadowy, behind the curtain players will, rather than conduct an investigation, instead focus on making beautiful fake evidence.

You're behind the game champ. These fellows have already admitted they were in the UK together, in Salisbury, together. You need a fresh angle on this. Or less 9%ers.

One screenshot, a clerical mistake.

Brilliant! I'm sure that's also the reason for the chemical attacks, invading Crimea, shooting down passenger planes, election interference, murder of journalists & opposition leaders, state-sponsored athlete doping and the rest. Just 'clerical errors'.

Nowhere does the article use the phrase "known GRU agents".

"Asked about the interview, a British government spokeswoman said: "The government is clear these men are officers of the Russian military intelligence service -- the GRU --..."

Agree with the rest of your post though.

Posted in: Japan's disasters highlight vulnerable infrastructure See in context

There's a lot of 'infrastructure' in this country, as they've been propping up their economy with concrete for a generation. Tunnels, bridges, rivers, sea walls, mountain roads, they all need maintaining through baking summers and freezing winters. And of course typhoons, quakes, eruptions and landslides. I think they do a commendable job of keeping it all ticking over, but by jove the annual cost must be enormous.

The left however does attempt to silence people they don't like through deplatforming and public protest in which people cannot carry on speaking.

'Deplatforming'? Alex Jones got banned from twitter because he's a nutjob, and public

protest does not prevent people fro speaking. I mean 'platforming'.

To quote you, "toughen up or go home. This PC madness needs to end, utterly and completely."
