“It will be embarrassing to have a buffoon head the country.”

Pukey 2, you get used to it. It’s like a low-grade hang-over that doesn’t go away (perhaps because one is so despondent that one drinks “frequently “).

& Boris Johnson? I take cold comfort in realizing that We Americans are not unique in our ability to choose lunatics with ridiculous hair for national leaders

Posted in: Ireland votes overwhelmingly to relax strict divorce law See in context

“After divorce, a woman gets deposited more than what a man's salary when received. He gets nothing but to do overtime all his life. She keeps enjoying her life.

This is the law in most countries, even in Britain and Japan. 

Woman's Power already there is and has been for decades. Such a shame yet a man keeps wagging his tail when he sees another woman.”

This is, without question, the “least informed” comment I have seen here in a while (and that’s saying something)

Fact: a majority of single parent households live below the poverty line in Japan.

Came late, looked bored, sat in a chair, ruined the vibe (what do you mean, no zabuton throwing?) couldn’t hold the Shojo correctly and needed help to pick up the trophy. Ugh.

Phuket 2: long story short, they didn’t. No Japanese official is dumb enough to say something like that when they know that the next President is likely to be a Democrat.

Once again, this is only reality in Trumps imagination.

It’s not a “plan” in the sense of getting actual legislation passed. It’s more of a grievance cry to the xenophobic base for the election.

Posted in: Bad rules, bad temper, rough start to golf this year See in context

Garcia has always been a drama-queen and a poor sport. Several years ago after retrieving his ball from the cup, he spit (& not a litttle bit) into the cup for all the following players to enjoy. When he was called out for it on tv by the announcer in an interview, he seemed surprised that anyone would have the audacity to question him,

Good of luck with that attitude at Bethpage, Sergio. I wouldn’t be surprised if he throws a hissy mid-round and quits.

Good riddance.

Nope.

Boring, shrill, economically misguided, hypocritical and dishonest on her background. (Btw, I’m voting Democratic). Nope, unless she is the nominee against Dotard, hard nope. Even then, I’d hold my nose and take a shower after.

Posted in: S Korean assembly speaker says apology needed from Japanese emperor See in context

Reparations were paid, the elected government chose to use them on infrastructure and graft. Apologies were made, they’ve been ignored. “Final agreements” were signed, then ripped up.

70 years after the War’s end, the Koreans are still moaning about it because of national ego and domestic politics.

Enough. Stuff it.

This is not a phenomenon limited to Japan. I know several people in America with retired parents who’ve fallen I to the faux “news” orbit and now spout off embarrassingly about globalists (aka Jews), “others” (non-whites) and the conspiracy against Gods anointed one.

Problem is, he hasn’t confessed and they can prove essentially nothing. The coins are gone. That’s all they know. Who and how is completely unknown.

I am guessing a face-saving conviction on the related issues and a time-served/suspended sentence.

Those here who say nothing is going to change are completely wrong. This has everyone’s attention, both in the industry and in the relevant govt. agencies. I cannot say for certain that there will never be another incident, but I can say that their frequency will drop dramatically and the atmosphere that allowed the JAL crew to believe that they could sneak a drunk First Officer on board is a thing of the past.

Posted in: How Carlos Ghosn has been spending his days in a cell in Kosuge See in context

The detention center is where the interrogate him until he breaks. If he doesn’t confess, the odds of a conviction are 50/50. I’m not commenting on my opinion of his guilt or innocence. I’m just stating an opinion on the nature of criminal justice in Japan.

Posted in: JAL fires co-pilot jailed in UK for drinking excessive alcohol before flight See in context

He will never fly again anywhere ever. JCAB will pull his license and he won’t get a new one any where else because of his criminal record. Good riddance. What I want to know is what happens to the 2 Captains who knew that he was not fit to fly and were obviously covering for him? The consequences of their obstruction will show how serious JAL is about cleaning this up.

Posted in: JAL pilot, 10 times over alcohol limit, jailed for 10 months in UK See in context

Forget abot the Co-pilot. His career in aviation is over. JCAB will pull his license the moment he gets out. What I want to know is what happens to the 2 Captains who (I VERY strongly suspect) knew he was unfit to fly and were going to sneak him on the plane to sleep it off. What happens to them determines how seriously JCAB will deal with this issue.

Good news, he avoids the arm-destroying Hell that is Koshien. Bad news, he’s playing for the Royals. I’m from Kansas City. The team is Gawd-awful and will be for at least another several years. I’m 48, not in great shape, and never played ball. I could play for this team right now. It’s that bad.

Posted in: Lockheed Martin to propose stealth hybrid of F-22 and F-35 for Japan See in context

Yeah, that's "unlikely" to happen. First, the US has refused to sell the F-22 airframe or ANY part of it to anyone, even the British. Second, you don't just slap f-35 sensors in the new plane, it would take time and a WHOLE lot of money. 3rd, As someone pointed out, the U.S. needs to sell as many f-35s as possible to get the unit cost down.

I agree that Japan's fighter fleet needs an upgrade, but the off the shelf f-35 a (and maybe b versions) will meet its needs at a much lower cost than this proposed franken-plane (oh, I like that one. I'm trademarking it!)
