Posted in: Trump no fan of Sacha Baron Cohen See in context

The left are the modern scribes and pharisees. Back in the 60's it was the church people who were the powerful sneering thugs, now the tables are turned and it's the left who are in power and can get away with snotty behavior like Sacha Baron Cohen. At least the church people gave us orphanages, hospitals, homeless shelters, etc. The left gives us nothing.

Posted in: Trump's U.S. Supreme Court pick says she has no agenda on Obamacare, abortion See in context

Amy Comey Barret comes across as highly qualified, sincere, intelligent, humble and dedicated. She promised to rule strictly in accordance with the law as written regardless of personal bias. What more could be asked of a judge?

Amy Coney Barret has all the identity qualifications that should have Democrats very eager to approve her nomination. As a female with a successful career it would mean another woman on the court. She's obviously not racist or she would not have adopted 2 black children from Haiti. So that's good.

Women's empowerment and anti racism are two of the Democrat's most promoted issues so I would imagine they would be thrilled with Amy Comey Barret.

We are all enjoying our lives because our mothers did not abort us.

where in the constitution does it say men have power over womens bodies or vise versa.

majority of Americans support women right to choose

I'm not commenting on the constitutional or public opinion aspects. I was just observing that it's wonderful that we are able to enjoy our lives because our mothers didn't abort us.

I think that's worth pondering about when deciding how we view this issue.

Posted in: Supreme Court pick Barrett draws on faith, family for Senate See in context


opposition to early term abortion is always a religious judgement.

Not really.

The religious sentiment is the obligation to obey 'thou shalt not kill' and 'do unto others as you would have them do to you', the sorrow at the wrong against the soon to be born child, and a feeling of responsibility to prevent such human rights occuring.

However, these sentiments are shared by both religious and non religious.

Religion aside, the scientific fact is that any video of the proceedure will show you that abortion brutally destroys the life of a soon to be born baby. On these grounds alone it is morally abhorrent and wrong.

Posted in: Coe supports athletes' right to advocate for social or racial justice at Olympics See in context

That's great, but will this allowance also apply to every single person and cause? How about protests on behalf of the following over the objections of (***)......Palestinians (Israel), Rohingya (Myanmar), Hong Kong (China), unborn (pro choice), etc, etc?

If you give this right to one group you have to allow it to all. But that opens a can of worms which will ruin the Olympics which is a sports event, not a political forum.

Enforce Rule 50 of the Olympic Charter ("no kind of demonstration or political, religious or racial propaganda is permitted in any Olympic sites, venues or other areas.”)

@ Concerned Citizen

Nationality may be useful to police who can demand to see a foreigner's passport at any time, but how is it useful for the average person? Can you reliably tell someone's nationality by looking at them? Or even the language they speak?

My point is that if an abviously foreign person commits a crime, the victim ought to be able to accurately describe the prepertrator to investigators.

Posted in: Foreigners to blame for livestock theft, according to Japanese media See in context

the nationality of the criminals shouldn’t be more of an issue than the crimes they’ve committed.

Wrong. It is an issue for purposes of identifying the prepertrators.

How can you imply that the victims are not allowed to describe the criminals?

In his view, COVID-19 should be downgraded to Category Five, along with seasonal influenza.


Put in place very strong protections for the actual at risk (the elderly, the sick, immunocompromised, etc) but let the kids and everyone else go about their lives.

How despicable the sexual exploitation of young girls involved in this movie, and the actions of the makers and promoters and those who defend it.

You can bet your bottom dollar that if a conservative or religious organization produced such a movie in order to "start a debate about the sexualization of children in society today" the media and others would go nuclear.

Cancel Netflix! -And everyone else who defends or promotes this film.

I don't know. And how can any of us definitively know?

But I would not be surprised in the least if it was deliberately created and released by the Chinese and perhaps in cahoots with those who have stood to gain by the spread, resultant panic and greater gain of control of the global populace.

Severe labor shortages are one of the challenges Japan faces posed by a rapidly aging population and declining birth rate.

The sad results of a generation that put short term economic security over long term security by not having enough children.

My parents had a big family. Now their kids are taking care of them and they are doing well.

Not only that, but society also benefits as their bunch of kids all contribute to the economy.

Any society that minimizes the importance of having children, however difficult, will eventually pay the price.

How can this writer possibly come up with the cognitive contortions required to pen such a spin denying the statistically obvious recent spike in violence and other crime in the US?

It is highly disappointing that JT continues to push the biased anti conservative, left wing narrative. It's also an offense to so many of it's own supposedly valued readers.

Worst of all, denying an overwhelmingly left wing extremist violent surge is an insult to those whose lives were lost and those who suffered injury and property damage.

Posted in: Japan newlyweds can receive up to ¥600,000 to start new life See in context

@Blue Sausage

But say a couple makes the sacrifices and has a few kids. What then? Because taxes to support the monstrous governmental structure take such a huge chunk of the couples' income, both parents usually have to be at work, commuting, or otherwise away from home for most of the waking hours. This means the children have to be placed in 'child-care' and the parents have limited contact with the children and virtually no influence over formation of the children's values and philosophy for life. The best the couple gets out of the bargain is to pay the bills. In a way, the couple is simply donating their lives to pay for developing more slaves of the state.

No wonder so many say "No Way!

That's true.....but the couple end up with the precious kids to love and enjoy forever. And usually those kids will take care of their parents when they get old. It's a huge win no matter the sacrifices.

I don't regret having any of our bunch.
