Posted in: Trump proposes 'worldwide network' to counter CNN overseas See in context

CNN is garbage, but mostly because of their decision to cover almost nothing but Trump goings on. “How upset were YOU that Trump said blah blah blah?” X 24hours a day.

Just turn on BBC for world news. Or wait for a hurricane. CNN is good for hurricanes.

Posted in: 'Married man' Justin Bieber says wants to be more like Jesus See in context

Justin Bieber was a talented young man when he appeared on his first YouTube video. However, the skill set of a young boy won’t get you through a lifetime. If he wants to follow after Jesus, maybe he should donate all his money to the Salvation Army or Habitat for Humanity and look for work as a carpenter?

Posted in: Trump backs Treasury Secretary Mnuchin after reports of dissatisfaction See in context

Trump can’t keep a team together because he wants to micromanage things that he doesn’t understand. His choices, not stellar, still keep trying to do their jobs ... big mistake if you want to stay for any length of time.

Posted in: Japan university students with experience of dating at lowest on record See in context

Never fear. Someone will read this survey, and will decide to start a dating education center. People will practice dating dialogs and computer-based dating scenarios. Exams will be given, followed by a certificate of dating excellence. This training will guarantee success with this difficult custom. Graduates will date, get married, have many babies, and before long, there will be overpopulation, a lack of housing and insufficient infrastructure.

Then again, the Salvation Army is busy passing out turkey, mashed potatoes, and veggies. Maybe our troops will support them by providing a nice Thanksgiving?

Well, the latest news is that the troops will not be armed, and are just there to support the police. I would comment, but I really don't know what to say.

Posted in: Trump sets off storm by criticizing retired Navy admiral for not capturing bin Laden sooner See in context

I really wonder how many news reporters are employed covering the latest Trump goings on. In the area of media, he has been a real job creator. Think of all the spam artists, the trolls, the news feed organizers, the reporters, the lawyers, the porn stars, and so on... really amazing. Mike Pence is smart, religious, and mean, so we'll still have stuff to talk about, but when our demented president leaves office... I don't know... I'm getting all emotional and stuff....

ABC news article giving Jerry Brown’s quote about Trump’s threats to cut funding:

"Wildfires are sparked and spread not only in forested areas but in populated areas and open fields fueled by parched vegetation, high winds, low humidity and geography," he continued in the statement. "Moreover, nearly 60 percent of California forests are under federal management, and another two-thirds under private control. It is the federal government that has chosen to divert resources away from forest management, not California."

Posted in: Trump seeks end to Florida recount as Republicans' leads shrink See in context

It seems to me that Scott claiming victory before all the votes were in, and thus setting up expectations in people's minds that they had won is what is causing so much resentment in that race. The bogus lawsuits from the Scott camp haven't helped, either.

Scott may win. Nelson may win. Just count all the votes and see.

Posted in: Florida orders vote recount in Senate, governor races See in context

Correction of my post above: Lostrune2 is right. The mandatory machine recount is, and was, triggered at .5 difference, and the hand recount happens at .25.

Posted in: Florida orders vote recount in Senate, governor races See in context

Let’s get a few things straight. First, in Florida, the First count of votes was due on Saturday, Florida time. This count will include votes that might not have mattered in a vote that wasn’t close, and will include overseas ballots, provisional ballots, etc. Second, recounts in votes that are less than one percent apart are required, not requested. So even though Gillum, for example, conceded, the recount is triggered. Nelson didn’t concede, but even if he had, there would have been a recount. The first recount will be a machine recount, and the second, if there is less than .5 percent difference, will be a hand recount. For Scott to claim a victory before even the first numbers were in was ridiculous. Not even Fox News had announced him as a winner. Generally speaking, both Republican and Democrat poll workers are honest, and if there isn’t a lot of interference from powerful vested interests, the votes will be counted properly, and the winner will be the winner. The counties where the votes were coming in the latest were in Miami and other Democratic strongholds, so provisional ballots will tend to be Democratic, but military overseas ballots may include more Republican supporters. The races that are outstanding are still a tossup. Anyone claiming victory at this point is engaging in wishful thinking.

Posted in: Trump insults more reporters; claims Acosta video wasn't altered See in context

Trump's behavior toward Acosta is consistent with later stage Alzeimer's. This is a medical problem, and we need to be patient with him, remove clutter from his surroundings, and try to discover the source of his anger. Maybe his eating routine has been disturbed or something.

Posted in: Trump warns that migrants who throw stones at U.S. military may be shot See in context

It's legal to apply for asylum. A lot of people have, and not one of them a rock thrower. Is compassion not a Republican value? Shall we just shoot people because someone has stoked your fear or hate? Evidently.

Consider a rock

Not thrown

A rifle

A refugee

An invader

yeah there’s a poem in there somewhere

Posted in: Treading carefully, Japan's nuclear industry makes a comeback See in context

Well, if you depend on a business for survival, and the big accidents from that business happen infrequently, you probably decide that you won't live long enough to see the next big problem, and meanwhile you can survive financially and raise a family. Unfortunately, someone else will live long enough ... maybe your grandchildren... and will be affected dramatically by your decision.

It's a difficult situation, but if you're going to have nuclear plants, at least build newer, safer ones. Don't try the patch jobs on old plants that are occuring all over the country, whether they pass "inspection" or not.

Posted in: Japanese farmers worried over effects of trans-Pacific trade pact See in context

Well, nothing is certain, but Japan’s food production centers around high quality and small numbers. It can’t compete in a market that wants cheap prices for a cheap product.

That being said, it will come down to marketing. There is a niche for top level quality around the world, but cash-strapped people in Japan and elsewhere are going to go for the 100 yen bin.

Posted in: Japan, 2 other Asian nations warn citizens not to use marijuana in Canada See in context

Actually, I think it’s sort of cute that the government would show its concern for citizens in this unenforceable way. It’s like signs that tell you to be sure to cross at the corner, because crossing in the middle of the street might be dangerous. Reading this in a sinister way is not necessary, though people do tend to be allergic to over- controlling governments in general these days.

Well, for this type of person, there are so many groups to hate. There are Jews, Catholics, Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Sihks, Muslims, Italians, Haitians, Democrats, even those dangerous Canadians... the list goes on. It's not that there hasn't been a tradition of hate in the US... it has existed hundreds of years, but the haters have never felt so comfortable, and because of the Internet, they can find and support each other. I don't think we can blame Trump for all of this, because these folks have always been there, but he certainly hasn't helped lead people toward cooperation, respect, and harmony.

Beyond the question of whether the new level is safe, what is the guarantee that even the 20 milliseivert level is held to? The goal is to stop the financial support of these people, and the data will be whatever it needs to be to achieve that.

Posted in: Do you think ordinances designed to restrict hate speech and eliminate discrimination infringe on freedom of speech? See in context

In the US, hate speech is protected as free speech unless it incites imminent violence. Proving that imminent violence has been incited has been difficult. I suspect that this situation is a bit too careful, but a clear definition of language that meets the threshold will have to be worked out over time. Meanwhile, Nazis will leave i a small town if everyone, including the judges, shows up to escort them to the town’s borders.
