Posted in: Australian opposition call for release of Trump transcript See in context

So where are the transcripts of all phone calls from every other US president?

You can bet your sweet

label they exist. But no need to rehash those if the former presidents weren’t compulsive liars bent on corruption.

See, now look what all this liberal nonsense has caused. Opposition parties and liberals actually think they get transcripts of every single thing now.

Is this sarcasm?

Its the people’s government. Should be transparent.

Posted in: New, old fans cheer Japan rugby win over Russia See in context

20 of the 41 members of the Japanese “national” team were born abroad.

Thats one watered down samurai team.

Wouldn’t be the case on a Japanese women’s rugby team or any women’s sport team in Japan.

That says much on the two genders in this country. The women shoulder the load from childhood and it’s reflected in the country’s adults.

Posted in: 6 months past legal drinking age, actress Kanna Hashimoto reveals binge drinking See in context

I have issue with the cholesterol connection. I’m 54 and drink way too much. Beer generally, occasionally sake or scotch. Been binge drinking for 40 years. However, every time I have my cholesterol checked they ask me if I’m a vegetarian because it’s so low. I really don’t think it’s related.

Xi is not dependent on any election to stay in power. Trump is. Trump can never win this game of chicken. Never mind trumps impaired intellect and severe lack of diplomatic experience.

The momentum shift occurred on the tee at the par four 12th when she whipped out a giant oversized black driver that the British broadcasters zoomed in on and said ‘she is not messing around.’

she proceeded to line up to the right, uncorked a massive free swing, cleared trees then just barely a pond and bounced onto the green in one.

”One tv program I saw this morning said it was the overseas media that gave her the nickname.”

English media didn’t give her that name Too strange of English.

I watched all four rounds. The original nickname was SMILE CINDERELLA but that’s a little TOO Engrish so the English media simply made it at least grammatically correct, though still strange. Especially to the native English speaking world.

They are condemned because they are 100% responsible for a tiny child’s death. You must maintain a margin for error AT ALL TIMES when blessed with the responsibility of a tiny child’s life.

I presume you are not a parent. Life is not a Television drama.

Posted in: Euthanasia law comes into effect in Australian state See in context

So terribly sad what Cricky wrote.

Myself at 54 with a wife and two teenage kids, I’ve often thought about what I would do if I became terminally ill. It would be such a terrible burden on the ones I love most.

I think I’d have a talk with my family and it’d be me and the charcoal grill in the shower room on a sunny day.

Good on Victoria state.

I’d like to know what Mr. Trump thinks about this. I’ll bet he thinks it’s just grand.

This B.S. will end someday people. For the sake of our children, pray it’s sooner than later and easier than harder.

And did you ever consider this policy is a purposeful form of isolation? I believe it’s government policy that prevents its citizens from truly integrating with the foreign world.

Posted in: Kono to ask foreign media to switch order of Japanese names See in context


you are so right about the lack of consistent phonetics in the English alphabet. It’s been debated for years among its native speakers. Unfortunately it won’t change in our lifetimes.

Its no excuse to replace the audible sounds of the language with the totally different sounds of another language.

If my wife can learn to read and write English, anyone can.

Posted in: Kono to ask foreign media to switch order of Japanese names See in context

Wait. Who is the foreign media reporting to? The foreign public. The foreign public expects the given name first and the family name last.

Or let’s just pile on more confusion along with incomprehensible KATAKANA English which corrupts Japanese kid’s efforts to speak discernible English.
