Japan headline news: 18-year-old youth arrested for shoplifting

Most other countries headline news: Murder, violence, riots, civil unrest, etc.

There are problems here but I'm glad to call Japan home.

These are the people setting the political and cultural agenda. The ones who shape society and demand we think a certain way lest we be 'cancelled'.

They don't love us.

Back in the 50's/60's secular liberals, having been oppressed by the dominant religious conservatives, cried 'freedom of speech!' Now the tables are turned.

History shows that once the oppressed minority win their freedom and become the majority, they tend to become the new oppressors. It's human nature, unfortunately. May God have mercy on us all.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.

I find that life in Japan is much more fun when I just overlook or ignore such things.

Another economy and mental health destroying overreaction due to irresponsible, sensationalist media fuelled hype to a sickness no worse than the regular flu in the very vast majority of cases.

183 active cases in a state with a population of 6.7 million residents. Your chance of bumping into a live case? 1 in 37000.

Morgan Freeman's 2005 interview with Mike Wallace for television’s 60 Minutes.

WALLACE: How are we going to get rid of racism until …?

FREEMAN: Stop talking about it. I’m going to stop calling you a white man. And I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.

So how about we just ditch all the race talk and concentrate on loving and respecting people regardless of the color of their skin?

If we tear down everything that offends the minority we'll have nothing left.

Rather than waging a negative campaign of division and destruction, how about we strive to build unity based on mutual love and respect?

@that person

Most sexual abuse against minors is committed by someone they know.

Thanks for pointing this out. I do understand that, which I why I added 'and could trust them with their life'.

We know multitudes of people, but would entrust our kid's only to a few who we can trust 100%.

In an average of opinion polls, RealClearPolitics gives Biden a 7.1 point lead over Trump in the election.

What? We're expected to believe the polls now after 2016's polling disaster? Why do media outlets still print this kind of drivel?

Congratulations Joe. But I feel sorry for him. He's obviously cognitively fading fast and cannot possibly get through a grueling presidential election battle with his faculties intact much less handle the pressure of four years as president. The Democratic Party knows this but because he's all they've got they are willing to sacrifice his well being in order to at least have a puppet president that they can prop up and use. It's pathetic and sad. Poor fellow.

Posted in: Searching 'racist' on Twitter brings up Trump as top result See in context

When will the Big Tech, media, secular liberal left and Democratic party crowd quit the failed race baiting (like this article), identity politics that spectacularly failed in 2016? People are getting absolutely sick of it and see through the hypocrisy. They need to stick to emphasizing workable policies that benefit the common person such as increased minimum wage, health care for all, and sound economic policies.

The Democratic Party used to be the party of the working class, but unfortunately it has devolved into a coastal elitist, out of touch with middle America corrupt cabal of hypocrites. As evidenced by this lying article.

@John B

.........Trump is a racist? Give me one, specific piece of evidence that shows he is what you claim he is. None of this conjecture or liberal commentary... an actual instance where Trump demonstrated unequivocal racism. Just one.

Trump is certainly uncouth; he is not the most articulate and oftentimes rather crass. But the "racism" accusation is just tiresome. It is what the left does whenever they don't like someone and their ideas and, in fact, hurts your cause.

I once was a left-leaning moderate—didn't even vote in the 2016 election. But the last 3.5 years have pushed me to the right. My family and friends are the same. We will all be voting for Trump and Republican straight ticket. Not sure I will ever be able to vote for a dem as long as they remain so intellectually dishonest.

Exactly. The Trump/conservative movement is not without its dishonest people, but the big tech, media, secular liberal crowd have become so full of lies and corruption it's breathtaking. I believe that many Americans, like you, are becoming so sick of them that the Dems are headed for a crushing defeat in November.

@theFu

....no. That wasn't the claim. Google made AUS$10M from advertising on news-link sights. That's very different than the totals made by Google. It is a specific sub-sub-sub-type of advertising on specific types of pages.

Thanks. I understand that and should have made my post to reflect it. Nevertheless I find their claim hard to believe.

@Sneezey

Peaceful, Martin Luther King style protesting designed to highlight the issue and bring about change through peaceful dialogue: Yes.

When this was tried they were beaten by cops, who then blamed them for violence.

Yes, but Martin Luther King's insistence on non violent protest helped win respect and brought about meaningful change.

The violence of these protest is not winning good will. Two wrongs don't make a right.

Discrimination is not the root of the problem. It's unnecessary fear whipped up by media hype. The worldwide average age of those dying from the virus is 75-80. The very vast majority of people have nothing to panic about.

This type of reaction is unnecessary.

Not seriously injured after falling from the 5th floor? Did something soft lessen the impact? Or did he miraculously survive in spite of slamming onto the street or pavement below? Either way, thank God he is OK.
