Makes sense.A pretty dry and obvious question there.

Posted in: Ghosn's wife fears his trial may be unfair See in context

The only way that Japan's draconian methods could be brought to task is if Ghosn were to die in jail. Beyond that, we all know he'll be found guilty one way or another. He's been thrown to the "wolves" by the French who don't need him.They still have the major controlling stake in Nissan,so they're happy. Barbaric, but not totally surprising.The Japanese system of law is more akin's to China's than westerners.And we know how they roll.

Haven't bothered with G.O.T. I need more modern age drama.But the old reliable of prequels is here to stay.Don't like 'em.They don't work beyond earning money.Look at BCS.

Being that Barr was given the job as his personal lawy..,I mean A.G. to protect Trump,you know there are hidden goodies in the report.He ain't gonna just give you.But if you can go after a president over a stain on a dress,you damn well better find out why Russia owns Trump like they do.Redacted or not.

I do think he is a golf legend, but his off course scandals are legend too. It’s hard to find athletes that my kids can look up to.

How about starting with yourself? Athletes aren't role models. If you do actually like sports and there's an athlete you like,he has his dirt too.Because EVERYONE has,including you and me.

 Now he needs to stay off the sauce and leave the "escorts" alone.

What's your predilection?

Well, what do you expect? Not exactly the creme de la creme over here,are they? Either jail or serve in the military in many cases.Just do what the Philippines did and kick 'em out.

The facade of Japanese companies caring for their employees is a joke. Work like a dog, "service overtime" and not able to take all your law-mandated 20 days of paid holiday in a year. Glad I wasn't born into that nightmare scenario.

Repugnant remarks. Good play by Abe. No, I do not support Abe, but o recognize smart politics when I see it.

That was the mother of easiest decisions to make.No smart politicking needed there.

Posted in: Ghosn says in video statement he is innocent and a victim of backstabbing See in context

I can't see why people are moaning about Ghosn not naming names.Are yous looking for breaking news for your social network page? Why give the names before the trial ? It would only help the enemy, in giving them time to prepare THEIR defence/explanation.

Have a read of The 48 Laws of Power Summary:

Or pay heed to Law 3 : Conceal your intentions.

Law 4 : Always say less than necessary.

No more re-negotiations. No more extensions. Come Apr 12th,let the chips fall where they may and let the UK leave without a deal.The boarding school toffs/politicians seem to think Leave means Leave,so let 'em.They'll be alright but it's the working class people that will suffer. I feel for those that voted Remain and will have to feel the pain because of the jokers that voted Leave.

Posted in: Japanese musician, actor Pierre Taki indicted over cocaine use See in context

How do they know to go to an apartment that's not his, to arrest him for some itsy,bitsy amount of coke? So, he was there partying alone, you saying? The police LOVE going after low hanging fruit when they should be targeting the dealers.But the way everything in this society is intertwined with the higher-ups and the crookery that goes on,that can't happen.

Trying to reduce the wasting of bureaucratic time by streamlining operations is always good.So I'm for it,though Japanese generally aren't so apt to change,particularly those stuck in their ways.

Posted in: White House warns Russia over troops in Venezuela; threatens sanctions See in context

Russia is just playing the clock-blocking role by poking their nose in broken countries,whilst trying to remain relevant. With Czar Putin at the helm,it's his way of showing the world how the U.S. isn't going to do jack.He owns an American president like no-other Russian president has or will. It is possibly the worst reality that could ever happen.

Posted in: Japan sees record number of domestic violence cases in 2018 See in context

Yeah,the numbers are under-reported concerning women attacking men too.As a comedian once said along the lines of, if a woman knows you're not going to hit her she knows she has got you. I think it's true.What's the guy gonna do? Call up the cops? Would get laughed off the phone. The talk of women and men are equal, until it comes to hitting.

Posted in: Democrats demand full Mueller report; Trump says OK with him See in context

Mueller bottled it and left the situation worse with this fairytale of a report resolving nothing.As indecisive as British pols with Brexit.But then, if I had a literal gun to my or my family's head by foreign agents,I'd most likely appease them. But America has been compromised in no uncertain manner.That cannot be denied.

As the saying goes,"It's not what you know,it's what you can prove." Either there really was nothing there.Lol. Or Mueller was gotten to.I can see Russia doing dark threats unbeknownst to us.They've being poisoning people on foreign soil with gay abandon recently,so I can't rule out their dirty tricks. Something is amiss because what were those indictments for then?

Posted in: Letters from Japan: 'My American husband is cheating on me. I want a divorce.' See in context

Two sides to a story that it might not be as clear cut as it reads.I have a good friend who cheated on his missus because she wasn't giving him any for a long time.But once he got caught,she started partaking again. Who's the bad one in that situation then?

In above article the guy might have his reasons for straying.Ask him for a balanced story.

And the answer of being regrettable in having married him is stupid.You don't know him so how can you judge?
