The two groups of people Trump has good words for outside of his family are people who sexually assault children and totalitarian dictators.

Basically correct but, have you ever heard the Orange Idiot utter any 'good words' about Donald Jr.?

The recent summit between the Korean presidents was historic and happened because of President Trump.

ISIS likes to claim responsibility for any terrorist attack they can. And because people don't always use the most critical of thinking, they believe them.

Trump uses this same tactic in trying to get praise from the people. If anything good happens on his watch, both he and his zealots take credit for it.

The summit between the two Korean presidents happened because the two Korean presidents wanted it to happen, and made it happen.

Trump sitting on his golden throne had nothing to do with it.

Agreed, but I'm inclined to go one step further and say: *The summit between the two Korean presidents happened BECAUSE Trump, sitting on his golden potty, had nothing to do with it.*

"It was a different world," Trump said Monday of his one-time moniker for the North Korean leader. "That was a dangerous time. This is one year later, a much different time."

Not according to the intelligence agencies. But, sure, we'll take your word for it. It's not like you're a documented compulsive liar.

But, but, but, we all know that the intelligence agencies can't be trust, don't we?

This may be an amateur guess, but with Japanese law saying that in porn, private parts have to be pixilated, but panties not, there may lie the answer why their are so many perverts.

You may be right but, if simply looking at 'panties' helps them get their 'jollies', surely it would be much safer for these perverts to wander through the women's 'intimates' displays at any large department store.

Oh wait, maybe that would cause them to suffer 'sensory overload' resulting in injury.

Michael.... Agreed, I just don't get this thing with Jcops and upskirt filming either....i mean this gets reported on regular basis, as in at least a cop per month...what the heck?

Is it possible that the cops are actually practising their covert surveillance techniques?

One time I walked up to the pervert and enthusiastically asked him to show me the photo. You should have seen his face.

Maybe, if you had taken the guy's photo, instead of holding yourself out to be an 'enthusiastic like-minded pervert', we might have been able to see his face on a poster at the police station.

"Upskirting" is a relatively recent variety of perversion that is facilitated by modern technology such as the mobile phone camera.

Wrong.

'Upskirting' has been going-on for a very long time. These perverts used to use video cameras, concealed in bags of various kinds, to pursue this pathetic perversion.

Modern technology has only created, and enabled, more of these pathetic perverts.

Modern modes of female attire such as short skirts (especially on High School girls) create the temptation

That's right, it's always the victims' fault when a pervert can't control his urges.

--even for upholders of the law!

At what point did this particular pervert actually 'uphold the law'?

Good job.

To be brutally honest, I have not often found myself agreeing with the comments you post in this forum. 

However, I totally agree with what you have said on this occasion; it is an irrefutable fact, as evidenced by the number of other 'commenters' echoing your sentiment.

Unfortunately, your +Vote Up button seems to be frozen, so I can't also register my support for your comment in that way. 

Also, the fact that three people, from the outset, down-voted your comment, suggests to me that some individuals in this forum judge comments, not by what has been said, as much as, by who said it.

Very sad.

@Stormcrow,

Surely there are better people to choose from among conservatives, so why are the Republicans so attracted to nominating sexual predators and deviants?

Have you seen a conviction handed down on a sexual assault? Judge K. has not been convicted of crime. This all a political ruse of distraction. Noise from the Democrats. It is a smear campaign and character assassination.

Pure and simple.

Pure - Judge K.?

I don't think so.

Yeah, I can agree with that

It’s hard to comprehend so many people defending this irresponsible and negligent woman. The child is dead because of her negligence and irresponsibility. That is the cold, hard and sad fact!

So, basically you are saying (or condoning) that any mother who fails to put helmets on their children and/or holds an umbrella incorrectly while using a bicycle.... deserves, not only, their child to be killed and... AND for them to then have a manslaughter charge placed on them.

I believe yours is a clear and concise interpretation of the original comment.

However, speaking from past experience, it is highly unlikely that you will ever receive a confirmation, or denial, of your interpretation.

Here's a thought, how about saving the newspaper in PDF,

To read a PDF document one needs to have a computer, which requires electricity to run, and compatible software to open the document.

copying it to a floppy disk

What is a floppy disk, and how can one use it with a computer that was built this century?

I also use an iPad; can I use a floppy disk with it?

and having the drone delivery the floppy disk to each resident every morning.

Yeah, that would be more efficient.

No, I don’t think so.

Let corporations who received the big tax breaks pay for the useless wall. They can put company logos on it like they do on stadiums.

Great idea, but Trump would never allow that to happen.

He wants the wall to be a monument to himself - you know, "Trump's Wall" (Hey, if it was alright for Hadrian to do it, it's alright for me)

The only logo allowed will be "TRUMP WALL" in yuuuge, tacky, Gold letters, every 50 metres.

@StrangerlandToday  08:12 am JST

Trump and GOP politicians are blaming this on the Democrats, even though the GOP holds the presidency and both houses. They're blaming their ineptitude on the party that literally holds none of the power. Just one more example of the GOP being completely worthless.

It is however quite entertaining to see the GOP feed upon themselves.

I fully agree with all of the above.

They're like a parasite.

Perhaps you should refer to them as harmful and destructive parasites because, otherwise, you are being quite unfair to the many parasitic organisms that can be extremely beneficial to humans and the environment.

Japan has zero security.

That's a gross exaggeration.

When the government releases information about security which state you should update your virus protection as the number one security measure you know they have no idea what they are talking about.

Then, what should the government be advising people to do?

I keep saying it.... these "hacks" have all the ear marks of a Yakuza job. The Yakuza basically identify an insider working at one of these Crypto companies. They then slowly approach the person, wine, dine and other things happen until they get their hooks in him. After that they put the pressure on and and go in for the kill. It is worth it.... and its virtually untraceable. The "insider" isn't going to say anything either. A lot of people think there is actually a "hack" happening.... I disagree.... it is an inside job.

That all sounds quite believable.

Now, how would you go about proving your theory.

Ascissor...please define "Gyakuso/salmon cycling" for those of us not in the know. My mental images cannot possibly be accurate.

I have been given to understand that, the expression "Gyakuso/salmon cycling" may refer to the, too common, practice of riding a bicycle on the right-hand side of the street or, as is the case with salmon swimming against the flow of water in a stream, against the flow of traffic.

Posted in: Mother indicted after 1-year-old son dies after falling off electric bicycle See in context

The key factor that caused this tragic accident seems to be the dangerous way in which the mother carried her umbrella.

I've spent some time looking at several 'mama-charis' and, frankly, I am at a loss to see any 'safe way' to carry an unfurled umbrella on one of these, or any other bike for that matter.

The most common way of carrying umbrellas seems to be to wedge them between the frame and rear carry-basket; obviously not the safest pace.

So, I ask myself, "how hard can it be to manufacture a clamp or bracket, which would be attached to a bike, to safely, and securely, hold an umbrella when it is not in use?"

I won't go into the use of opened umbrellas while riding a bike, because I don't believe there is any safe way to do this.

Feel free to offer any thoughts.
