Posted in: Kishida grateful to N Korean leader for quake sympathy message See in context

This is quite wonderful. A moment of Humanity. Maybe because he knows Trump will be president again and Kim anticipates good relations with Japan. To all the naysays, walk a mile in Kims shoes. Though the drunk uncle comment made me literally laugh out loud. Thank you Laguna san :)

Kazuaki san, calm it :) you must be really good at your job but this is not a place for vitriol.

That being said, Kazuaki, if you do a little searching around, it is speculated that it is diluted semen that was sprayed on the victims.

If I were in Law, that would change my case a bit ;)

No, Japan will be a smokers haven thanks to the almighty JT for a long time to come people. So don’t get your hopes up. Enjoying a nice relaxing Hope Short as I type this in one of my favorite Izakaya with a cold beer and some sticks. God I love this country! Long live JT.

Posted in: Netflix employee fired in wake of Chappelle special furor See in context

So a trans person, surly the the one who released the information, doesn’t need to honor an NDA or contractual agreement now? I am speculating of course, but whomever that was was fired rightfully. Do your job and honor your contract, or get fired. Race, creed, gender, sexual preference etc. should not even be an issue. It really feels worse than the original BLADERUNNER already.

Did anybody notice or hold their breath on this?

Umm.. yea. The tens of thousands of people behind anything you see in any form of moving entertainment. But hey, I don’t know or care what you do for a living so it’s understandable. I do belive this is news worthy however. #unionstrong

His analysis of New York is, in some ways, very antiquated and I think a lot of voters see him as a vestige of old New York, with his red beret and I would say racialized understanding of how the city operates, which I don’t think many New Yorkers are interested in right now,

dude, go back to Fordham.. you don’t hear the shots outside your window nearly every night in Flatbush like we do.

Oh come ON. YMCAs have pools and are free to join for people with low income. It’s not racism... Gym memberships cost fees. No complaints there?

If he is as dumb as he looks in the picture of him that is circulating, he will say something that will seal his fate for jail time here. Animal.

Posted in: James Woods suggests his agent dropped him over politics See in context

Kyronstavic, I truly appreciate your comment. The bit about keeping ones head down is more true than you know.

As a full time Entertainment Professional in NYC with right-leaning views, I have become isolated, and live in fear of relaying my opinions to anyone in my professional circle due to the treat of loosing work.

To some degree, it feels like a sort of reverse McCarthyism.

I respect and admire the Left’s passion and incredible call to arms, but I feel as though I must remain silent if I ‘ever want to work in this town again’.

I hope that some members on the Left come to Jame’s defense.

Gersh is powerful, but there are plenty more fish in the sea. Do any of them have the balls to pick Woods up after this? Time will tell.
