Posted in: Emma Thompson confronts nudity and aging in sex worker comedy See in context

The storyline about aging women seeking adventures that they shunned at an earlier age is one that is very common in real life. Divorcees and widows are eager to experience romantic fantasies while they still can.

As for America's Dad, tens of millions of American males grew up with Bill Cosby as Carole model. Unfortunately, his bad habits have been widely emulated, and date rape and drugging are still out of control.

Slavery still exists as an institution, conditions for slaves is worse than under legal slavery. It is cheaper to pay minimum wage than to pay for all the expenses of maintaining a slave.

Does this mean that Covid was genetically engineered to target "people of color?"

Or was it simply a coincidence that while first discovered in China, it is the USA experiencing over half a million new cases per day?

All people seem to care about concerning Biden is that he is not Trump.

His insipid incompetence is insignificant, as long as he is a loyal Democrat, nothing else matters.

Only one thousand allowed to compete and no spectators?

This event needs to be updated, using virtual reality, millions could compete online, and hundreds of millions could watch online or via cable.

Left as is, billions of yen are being left on the table.

Much profit to be made pushing escapist fantasies.

To expect that another person will complete your life by meshing as a soul mate is naive and ends in disappointment.

A person is far better off pursuing selfish self centered hedonism before any consideration over anyone else.

"Being drunk at the time" seems to be an excuse accepted by courts as a defense for a variety of crimes such as assault ,etc.

Yet this excuse is never used in DUII cases....

Companies who sponsor these games will face being equated with sponsoring genocide and face world wide boycotts of all their product lines.

The movement has already begun, will probably remain a grass roots movement as mainstream media is reluctant to antagonize advertisers.

Posted in: Kishida calls for aggressive wage hikes in push for wealth redistribution See in context

The best way to increase workers earning power is by reduction of The various taxes each wage earner pays.

Increasing wages across the board may seem like a worthy deed, however, such wage increases lead to higher prices for consumers as companies must recover the cost of additional wages. Wage hikes also push earners into higher tax brackets. The resulting inflation from mandated wage hikes quickly negates any advantage of higher pay and leaves the worker with less than before government meddling.

Royalty is an outdated concept in any modern society on the planet.

Retiring this tradition would free up much land for the homeless and ease the burden on taxpayers.

While the behavior of Japan's royal is tightly controlled, such is not the case in European royalties, who live lavishly and decadently at huge costs to the working people and give little in return save for tabloid fodder.

Today the number of new Covid infections reported in the USA was well over 400,000.

It has been said that it is just a matter of time until EVERY American is infected, regardless of vaccine status, prior infection, social distancing or masks.

Allowing entry of untested Americans into Japan is simply insane.

Jonathan Swift had a famous "Modest Proposal" many years ago that may be more relevant today.

Using human based protein, new sources of nutrition could be created utilizing beings currently having a negative impact on society, such as prisoners, homeless, and chronically unemployed people.

Given an ample amount of time and PR campaigns to overcome public revulsion to self-specie sustenance, many exciting gourmet dishes will one day provide all the protein our population craves.

Posted in: North Korea calls for troops' greater loyalty to Kim See in context

President Biden needs to invite Leader Kim to the USA and take him on a goodwill tour, to Disneyland and take in the Super Bowl Game. Get lots of Hollywood dignitaries to meet and greet him, and show him a grand time.

Then send him home with shipboard of wheat, grain, medical supplies, and other items of humanitarian aid.

Show the people of North Korea a bit of generosity and respect and it will do more to bring them into the family of nations than all the empty threats we've spouted for years.
