Posted in: In rare on-camera clash, Trump, top Democrats argue about border wall See in context

Every country protects their borders. On this issue the Democrat position of illegal/borderless immigration, sanctuary cities and abolition of ICE lacks common sense and is out of step with the majority of U.S. citizens.

President Trump may lack the graces you'd expect from a president but it seems his belligerent style is needed to force the Washington swamp to get common sense things done for the sake of the people. If that's what it takes then give 'em hell Mr. President!

These black entertainment companies are a disgrace and should be ashamed of themselves. But they won't be because they are soulless wolves.

I believe that the girls themselves bear some responsibility as well. They can't be so starry eyed and naive that they get tricked into such contracts.

The parents of these girls ought to advise and protect thier girls a lot more. Personally I wouldn't want my girls anywhere near these bloodsuckers.

I hope those who are trapped can break free.

Posted in: Republicans beginning to worry about Trump re-election See in context

Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot by just Trump bashing all the time. It didn't work in 2016 and probably won't in 2020. The more they hate on him and his base the more he counter punches and his base gets excited and motivated to vote for him.

In order to have a shot at winning in 2020 Democrats ought to quit the hate campaign against Trump, middle America, men and whites and offer the public a positivite campaign based on workable economic policies that benefit the working person. I hope they do.

Posted in: Kevin Hart out as Oscars MC over anti-gay tweets See in context

26.5 million viewers last year, compared to 43 million in 2014.

40% decrease in viewership in 3 years. Is this because legions of conservative viewers got tired of being looked down on, smeared and hated by the Hollywood crowd?

It's time for Hollywood to stop the hate and embrace and include those who think differently.

Horrors.

How in the world were 48 patients dead within such a short period of time without hospital staff suspecting something unusual? Or, did they suspect something early on but fail to act decisively enough? I'm curious.

There can be very valid reasons for a parent to prefer thier child to grow up hetero rather than gay that have nothing to do with homophobia or hate in any way.

The parents want thier kids to experience the joy of child raising and would like grand children. (More likely if straight)

The parents want thier kids to have thier own children to look after them in thier old age. (Again, more likely if straight)

The parents know that male homosexual activity comes with much higher risks of HIV/AIDS and other STD's.

If that's Kevin Hart's (or anyone else's) preference I don't see anything wrong with him stating it matter of factly.

Tobita Shinchi is full of brothels presumably run by or connected to the yakuza in some way. Why have the authorities targeted this one? The money involved isn't much either. I'm curious.

Posted in: Kevin Hart out as Oscars MC over anti-gay tweets See in context

Hollywood types are free to associate with and give jobs to whom they like. If they don't like Kevin Hart because of his opinion on the gay lifestyle then that's fine with me.

But Hollywood types should be honest and admit that they are not as inclusive as they claim. And they should stop preaching thier hypocritical 'diversity' gospel to everyone else.

This is a disgrace by which Japan should be thoroughly ashamed. I hope this causes a national outcry and soul searching that puts an end to the brutal slave labor practices of these companies.

Publicly name and shame the companies and where possible prosecute them to the full extent of the law.

Posted in: If you go and see a psychiatrist in Japan, because they’re so inundated with the number of people, they’re not really able to do therapy with you, so it’s treated very much on a medication basis. While the medication is really important, patients are not really learning coping strategies or understanding how to get better. See in context

Unfortunately the Japanese are generally not good at mental health or emotional care. They rely on medicine rather than personal care, attention and communication. I don't know what the solution is though.

I don't believe in the government censoring music or any other form of art or speech. But private radio stations and the public can refuse to play/listen to or ignore material they don't like or agree with.

In this case, I don't think this song is a big deal. As mentioned before, the trash some rappers and Hollywood studios produce can be much worse, even despicable. I would be happy to see that stuff ignored out of the market.

Posted in: Are doctors and teachers confusing immaturity and attention deficit? See in context

ADHD diagnoses are often totally unnecessary. The reasons children, especially boys, aren't paying attention in class might be the following:

They are bored with the content

They feel 'lost' in a crowd of 30 or more students

Tiredness due to lack of sleep, which might be due to several causes

Emotional or disciplinary issues

Lack of exercise

Etc.

Drugging them should very rarely or never be the answer. Of course that means less money for the medical system......

Posted in: Sanders eyes 'bigger' 2020 bid despite some warning signs See in context

Chip Star:

You might not be aware that Bernie Sander’s party platform (Democratic Party) as seen on it’s web page states clearly the party’s support for abortion. No restrictions are mentioned whatsoever.

https://democrats.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/2016_DNC_Platform.pdf

This is out of step with Americans of whom around 60% supported the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act which was introduced by Republicans to outlaw abortion after 20 weeks. Democrats in the Senate defeated the proposal.

This barbaric policy, besides identity politics, racism against whites, misandry against men and no clear economic policy will make it difficult for Bernie and his Democrats to win in 2020.

PS: I would love to see the Democratic Party return to the way it was under President Jimmy Carter

Posted in: Sanders eyes 'bigger' 2020 bid despite some warning signs See in context

While Bernie Sanders seems the most sincere and honest of all the likely Democratic Party candidates I don't think that he or any of the others can win over swing voters and the working class unless the party returns to the worker friendly ways of the way it was under President Carter.

The Democratic Party has been poisoned by identity politics, racism against whites, an unhealthy association with Hollywood perverts and elites and policies like abortion on demand up until birth. And they don't have a clear economic policy. Besides more affordable medical care, they don't resonate enough with swing voters and the working class.

I'd love to see the Democratic Party return to it's foundations. But sadly I'm not holding my breath.

Posted in: The internet has become a phenomenal tool for hate groups. Do you agree with this statement? See in context

Labelling broad groups of people who differ from us as 'hate groups' can make us guilty of hate ourselves and perpetuates the cycle of hate.

Loving others, even if they differ from us, is the way to overcome hate. Tough to do, but we can try our best.

Hakman:

Also, it's my understanding that most of these alarmist climate-change findings are based on computer models. 

Very good point. Scientists cannot magically go back in time to measure historical temperatures so they make educated guesses which may or may not be true.

I would say that the based on observable facts global warming is an unproven theory.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Posted in: Thousands of Australian students skip school for mass climate protest See in context

The law of gravity, the laws of thermodynamics etc are natural laws that are universally acknowledged without exception because they are observable beyond a shadow of a doubt. 

While present day global warming is observable it is not possible to observe or measure distant past temperatures for comparison. Nor is it possible to predict with certainty that the present warming will continue. Thus it cannot be considered an incontrovertible fact. But rather it must be believed and therefore has sceptics, unlike the law of gravity. 

Here's a list of scientists on both sides of the issue:

Here are some dissenters:

I'm not convinced either way. 

Let every individual make up thier own mind and respectful debate continue.
