Congratulations Braves. But, this new stadium only holds about forty two thousand? Hey Apple, stupid iPad keyboard not letting me type numbers! Anyway, University of Georgia Sanford Stadium holds ninety two thousand seven hundred firty six.

Posted in: Do you think the U.S. missile strike against Syria was also a warning to North Korea? See in context

Maybe it wasn't on purpose, but I'm sure little Big Phat Boi took notice. There are still plenty of evil dictators causing havoc on their own people: Venezuela, Cuba still, North Korea, China still (and maybe the communists in China have killed more people than any other evil dictatorship in history, just since 1949!), not much freedom of expression still in Russia, Syria, etc., etc., plenty of places I would not want to live. Would any of you want to have to live in any of these and other socialistic/communist places? No sankyu.

If you stay USA citizen, they'll track you down for taxes no matter where you live! Many Americans are renouncing citizenship lately because of the ridiculous tax system.

iPhone 5, works great, had flip phone before that. As for others, I'd rather support American company than another country's stuff. Even though Hecho en Chine, it's still American profits.

Posted in: It's home for some See in context

I find it amazing that so many people think that being homeless is the government's fault. If the government did something better, there wouldn't be homeless people. In many (not all) cases, it's simply the homeless person's own fault. Alcohol, drugs, etc. that caused them to become homeless. I have worked with the homeless in Japan for many years, and most of the ones I've worked with know it's their own doing. And most were at one time intelligent people who have burned out their brains with alcohol/drugs of various kinds, and now have mental issues and cannot do regular work. I also know some who became homeless due simply to financial problems, business going bankrupt, etc. Truly just caught in bad circumstances. I respect and care for homeless people so much, I've volunteered about 15 years to working to help them. One thing they need is our respect.

gogogo, the reason we Beikokujins hate it is because we have it! We know what a mess it is. I hate it. Just stop moving the clocks around, dagnabbedit.

Age limit? I thought it meant being at least 18-20 or so. I didn't think about geezerhood.

Posted in: 'Zebra companies' -- 'black companies' that hide their blackness with phony reforms See in context

The government cannot legislate good or bad human behavior. A law won't change a jerk. This is a human problem, not a legal problem, unless someone breaks the law and the law in enforced. And, many people get totally angry when laws are enforced. Some jerks just need to be fired. Some jerks own the company. Jerks, I call'em.

Japan, do NOT allow KomKast, Far East Sektor, to even touch your internet service. It's probably the most hated company in USA.

If a phone number is not in my Address book, I NEVER answer. Real callers will leave a message.

Posted in: Japan took in 28 refugees in 2016, despite record applications See in context

Good job Japan. Keep it up. In USA I know personally of an area where about 100 students from a third world country live. After caught throwing trash, chicken bones, etc. all over, their reply was, "This is what we do in _____." Their country. Sick. Hey, all you from wherever you're from, ACT DECENT WHEN YOU COME TO A DECENT ACTING COUNTRY!!! Yes, that'd be shouting. You're the ones who MUST change!! Don't come bringing the very low culture that made you third world!! Be clean, respectful, kind, clean, quiet, learn, clean. Did I say be clean? Don't litter?! Otherwise WE DO NOT WANT YOU. Done.

Posted in: Message for Trump See in context

Getting ILLEGAL immigrants out, and stopping more from coming into America - good. It's just the law, which hasn't been enforced in many years. Vetting people from these 7 countries is good. The same countries that 'Bama mentioned. Same ones. Seems to me the only difference is that President Trump is finally beginning to enforce our laws. Just try to come into Japan illegally. Or Mexico, Canada, almost any other nation in the world. They'll kick you out or worse in many countries. I hope Japan never gets weak with its immigration laws. Law and order, that's what's needed, not this ridiculous "demonstrating."

Posted in: Asian media decry isolationist Trump, fear economic, diplomatic turmoil See in context

Just try to sneak in to Canada, China, Japan, Mexico (just make a mistaken U-turn!!), Korea (either one), Vietnam, or any other country in the world and see how you're welcomed. Protecting borders, eh? President Trump is right. America is fast becoming a third world country! Rioting, burning, looting like a bunch of Africans, cities (Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, NYC) becoming unlivable with litter all over, airports looking like you've arrived in ..... America NEEDS to start putting itself first!! Just like every other country does! You always take care of your own family before you can help someone else. Other nations will benefit when America is prosperous and strong. If we can kick out all these professional life time politicians!

Posted in: APA hotel chain under fire over book denying Rape of Nanking See in context

It is amazing to me that just these few short years since WWII, the 1930s, etc., that there can still any real doubt as to what happened in Nanjing, Germany, etc. with all these killings and persecution. E.g., Mao killed more people, Chinese people, during the so-called "Cultural Revolution" in China than Hitler, Stalin, and a few others combined. Mao killed MILLIONS of Chinese people! Yet even thought that's more recent, it's almost as if no one even considers those terrible years in China. The world has sure needed some good solid history writers who know what really happened, as much as possible. And, new evidence seems to come up occasionally that can change what we think really happened in various places and times.

Posted in: In 2015, Japan accepted 27 refugees, including three Syrians, after some 7,500 people from 69 countries sought such status in Japan, according to the justice ministry. Do you think Japan should take i See in context

The REAL problem is why these muslims want to leave in the first place. As for going to Canada, as an American, it's harder for me to immigrate to Canada than for a so-called refugee. I checked into retiring to New Zealand or Australia. Forget that idea.

Being a pastor, I love Christmas in Japan! We always have a Christmas Eve service with many new people coming, and they really enjoy it and hear the true Christmas story for the first time. Afterwards, some food, tea and coffee, good times had by all, we love it! You have to make it what it really is, and it can be great!

Posted in: Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will visit Hawaii Dec 26-27 to pay his respects to the war dead at Pearl Harbor. China says he should do likewise at Nanjing. Do you agree with China? See in context

Good: CrucialSDEC. 12, 2016 - 08:22AM JST China can pay respect to the millions massacred in the Cultural Revolution, the dozens killed in Tiananmen Square, and their oppression of the Tibetans and Uyghurs before seeking anything from Japan.

Face your own demons before challenging others to face theirs.

Well said Crucial!!! Mao killed more people than Hitler, Stalin, etc. combined. Plus, NO freedom in China today! Bunch of commie pinkos. NO Mr. Abe, DO NOT go to China!
