“History will always be written by the victor and the losers will always be depicted as the antagonists”
If you don’t want to go down in History as aggressors, don’t invade other countries, don’t commit war crimes, don’t fight wars you cannot win.
I’m referring to Imperial Japan. Seems like pretty good advice for America as well.

Left wing, Right wing, in Korea when you get in domestic political trouble, blame Japan.
Enough. Japan has apologized. The Emperor apologized. Compensation was paid. That the South stiffed the victims is the South’s fault.
Japan and South Korea reached (in my view a pretty unfair to the South) an agreement on forced sex slaves. For better or for worse, the sovereign government elected by the people signed the deal. Then they broke it.
And I am a “Yasukini-hater.”

This is definitely all about Tulsa. And Trump’s demand for a piece of the sale price amounts to extortion. It’s really no different from the yaks that walk into an izakaya and say “Nice bar. It’d be a shame if something happened to it......or you.”

This is a real issue and Secretary Pompous is the last person who should be delivering it. He has no credibility on anything regarding Chima.
As a fellow Kansan, I can tell you the man is regarded as an embarrassment. There’s a reason he didn’t run for Senate this year. He would have likely lost.

I don’t see how MLB is going to get in a 60 game season. The league didn’t thing things through and the players are not taking containment measures seriously enough.
Let’s not even start with College Football.

Trump is going to lose BIGLY. That’s why he’s flailing. -33% growth in the quarter 150,000 preventable deaths All on his watch. “I alone can fix it!” Remember that? He’s a fraud and even his supporters know it deep down
no, he cannot delay an election. So he’ll do the next best thing. Counter-sue. Muddy the waters, walk away claiming victory. It’s what he did with his casinos. It’s what he did with his “university”. It’s his whole life. His entire life is a testament to failure.

“if people can put on a mask and go to the store they can put on a mask to go vote. Masks plus social distancing works right?
we shouldn’t still be counting votes weeks later like NY state did.”
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns. Don’t bother, they’re here......

Thankfully, this takes time to execute and Biden will likely reverse the order.

Trump and the GOP don’t need the “fake news” to brand them as incompetent. They do that all by themselves.
Lets suppose that the $600 in extra assistance is cut off and the localities are unassisted. Whom do you suppose that those newly indigent and unemployed city workers are going to vote for?
What effect will that have on the sputtering recovery and whom do you suppose the voters will hold accountable for the ensuing economic collapse?

I recently needed emergent care (Kidney stones) and had to call about 4 different hospitals before I found one that would let me come in because they were not taking new patients due to Corona. REALLY painful, but not life-threatening. It made me wonder “What if it were critical? Would I be able to get treated?”
It’s not just the infected and the sick but also people needing but unable to get treatment or too scared to seek treatment that is making this a public health issue.

While I have never liked his Narcissism, nor his “Music”, I think Kanye is suffering from a serious mental break that begs for an intervention ala Britany. Left to his own devices, this won’t end well.

There quite simply will be no economic recovery until confidence in public health is restored. As every (credible) public health official will tell you, error on the side of caution. Once you have exponential spread, it’s too late (Florida anyone?)

I especially like the part where the second sentence starts with something like “We had excellent ratings. We had the greatest ratings in cable tv history.”
So it’s all about him, his success. His ratings. His popularity.
Mary was right; he checks every box on the narcissistic personality disorder diagnostic checklist.

This program seems to embody the goal prioritization, scenario analysis and contingency planning that we have come to expect of the Abe “administration.”

By all means, let’s replace a narcissistic sociopath with a narcissist with bi-polar disorder. They both have wives nearing their hot mom expiration dates and zero policy curiosity
I honestly can’t figure out If this is Kanye’s desperate attempt to stay relevant, or a cry for a mental heath intervention. Certainly the Kardashian clan don’t have his best interests at heart.
He is a wet fart in a hurricane. The last 3 years have shown that competence matters and that the presidency is not an entry level job.

Beijing should have the games pulled or boycotted because of their behaving HK, the South China Sea, East China Sea and Taiwan.
they are free-riders in the West and it’s time for that ride to come to an end.

Having studied the CCP extensively in college (many years ago) I can say that it is irredeemably evil. It is a black hole of power and corruption.
If Communism could succeed anywhere in the world, it would be China; a country of poor people, a confusion history, and utter corruption in the past. And yet the only way the CCP stays in power is by locking up and/or killing anyone who dares to speak out against them.
I am a liberal Democrat and I warn everyone that the CCP is a nationalist, expansionist, aggressor. They want to creep forward and then present us with a dead end choice. They think we need China. China needs our markets, and we are militarily stronger (for now). It’s time to draw a line.

If you were an aging resident in the boonies (let’s be honest, that’s a majority of the population) would you want a bunch of people from Tokyo descending on your moderate sized (Kanazawa for example. Beautiful city btw) city? Full disclosure, I’m “from” Tokyo.

Because, science.... Who knew government could be so hard?
This is going to be a tsunami election for 2 reasons: 1. People have grown tired of Trump’s bit (lie, bully, lie commit crimes). 2. Trump’s supporters are going to die in statistically significant numbers.
8 members of a state assembly is just the top of what’s coming.
