So Obama says that Al-Qaida would use nukes if it acquired them? Isn't that a case of stating the obvious???

Posted in: U.S. Congress completes overhaul of health care; more threats come in See in context

Many people in the States CHOOSE to go without health insurance. They will continue to do so, because the fine for not having it is actually less money than the premiums would cost. The Democrats can't be stupid enough not to know this. It's just another hidden tax. Or maybe not so hidden.

The trial just ended -- but it looks like Japan Today editors have already found the woman guilty. Your headline needs to be changed, guys. Innocent till proven guilty, remember?

Posted in: Man, angry at IRS, crashes small plane into Texas building See in context

This guy was just as angry at big business, the Catholic Church, and his wife as he was at the IRS. But the media keep concentrating on his anti-IRS anger only. I guess the pro-Obama media need to play up the anti-government angle so that the liberal Democrats can use it to score political pity points.

Must have been awful. I know someone in Connecticut who lives about 20 miles from there, and she said she felt it.

"" surprised they were able to identify the body. One would think that there would be very little identifiable flesh left on a body after being dragged on asphalt for 24 km...""

Asphalt? This is Hokkaido in winter, dude. The roads up here all have a layer of ice and/or snow on them this time of year!

Posted in: Lieberman to start Senate investigation into Fort Hood shooting See in context

One AP report I read yesterday said this: More than a few servicemen and servicewomen knew about this guy's extremism, but were reluctant to act because they didn't want to appear to be prejudiced against Muslims.

So thanks to political correctness, 13 people are dead.

And I'm still waiting for the so-called mainstream media to call this what it is -- a terrorist attack.

Poor cops -- there were only 2 of them, and they were sent in to deal with an incident involving over 20 men. They should have had more help.

Posted in: ANA asks passengers to go to toilet before boarding See in context

I always "hit the loo" right before boarding anyway. I have been doing it for as long as I can remember flying. The terminal's toilets are usually nicer than the ones in the plane. Unless you're flying out of LaGuardia or JFK.

Posted in: 40 police cars, 100 officers, one copter mobilized to chase 2 thieves See in context

It seems to me that the Japan Today staff wrote that headline for the deliberate purpose of inviting people to dump on the Japanese police. That's why they left the serious injury out of the headline -- then buried it several paragraphs down in the story.

Posted in: 40 police cars, 100 officers, one copter mobilized to chase 2 thieves See in context

The headline is misleading. It leaves out the fact that they severely injured a man after driving into his car. That's called "assault with a deadly weapon" where I come from. Meaning that these two weren't just thieves -- they were more dangerous than that.

Doesn't "wild west" imply lawlessness, gunfights at the corral, things like that? I think a more appropriate comparison could have been made.

Do NOT donate money to this UN program if you oppose abortion. Because at least a portion of its funds go toward enabling abortion around the world.

I'm not trying to start an argument with people who are okay with abortion. If that's your opinion, so be it. I'm just warning those who, like me, morally oppose the taking of the lives of the unborn. If you donate to the Millennium Fund, you will be contributing to abortion.

Posted in: Proxy wedding means Marine's Japanese widow, baby unwelcome in U.S. See in context

The child is an American citizen by virtue of the father's citizenship. So the child should be allowed to stay in America, as well as the mother because the child is her dependent.

Don't hold your breath waiting for Obama to do anything about this. Not with the liberal disdain for the military.

Posted in: Medical examiner says Yale student was suffocated See in context

As long as the constitutional right to bear arms continues to be denied on US college campuses, this kind of crime will tragically continue to plague the hallowed halls of academia.

How many more Annies have to be murdered? And how many more campus assaults (such as at Virginia Tech) have to happen, before people are allowed their constitutional right to defend themselves with firearms?

Posted in: Man dies after being dragged by car for 70 meters in Ibaraki See in context

Hope they catch this driver too but gotta say as a driver in japan it's a scary place.

How true. Accidents like this never happen in any other country except Japan. Never, ever, ever.

Not a single pedestrian has ever been killed or injured by a car in any other country. It only happens in Japan.

Make sure you remember that!

Being the victim of something like this is not necessarily worse than being the poor schmuck who has to pay the doctors.

That is the most idiotic thing I have ever read. In my life. Ever. And I mean it.

Japan really does need to do something about the laws that make the consequences for hitting someone with a car so severe that people feel they have to run away.

Great idea. Why apply this "logic" just to car accidents?

Let's apply it to all crimes -- even murder! Instead of life in prison or the death penalty, let's make the penalty for murder ... probation!

That way, murderers will be far less likely to attempt to evade arrest!

Thanks for the opportunity to engage in one of my favorite hobbies -- sarcasm!

mother 26, kid four, no mention of father, city run apartment complex. figure it out guys.

Guess it never occurred that Dad was probably working. The accident did happen at around 5pm, you know. Imagine that -- a Japanese man working at 5pm!!!

Posted in: Bullying blamed after two 13-yr-old girls jump to their deaths See in context

In Korea the kids kill themselves because they're excessively pushed to study and achieve academically.

In Japan the kids kill themselves because they're being bullied.

In both cases, it's so sad and tragic.

Posted in: Baby boy dies in locked car while mother plays pachinko in Akita See in context

They now go after bar staff for serving people they know are going to drink and drive why not apply the same sort of logic to this scenario and go after the pachinko parlours.

Yes, because the bar staff KNOWS that the person has drunk too much.

But how does the pachinko parlor staff know that one of the players has left a baby outside in the car?

Another one! What a wonderful thing Pachinko is.

I think pachinko is stupid ... but blaming pachinko for the mother's horribly irresponsible behavior is ridiculous.

What if it had been a supermarket parking lot? Does that mean we should speak out against grocery shopping?

The person in the audience who asked about Obama tags is an idiot.

We should be focusing on Obama's weak foreign policy, and his disastrous economic and social policies.

Idiotic comments like this "tags" thing only give him an out and let him use it as a distraction.

Posted in: World leaders pay tribute to Kennedy See in context

I challenge all those on here who criticize the man to show me someone who is NOT flawed or made some mistakes

I have never left anyone to suffocate to death while submerged in the back seat of my car, especially while waiting for hours and hours to bother getting help. And then used my powerful family connections to escape legal justice for it.

Nor have I enabled the slaughter of millions of unborn babies with my legislative votes.

Posted in: World leaders pay tribute to Kennedy See in context

And yet still some Rightists on here -- despite the majority of the Republican party paying tribute -- take the time to try and find ways to undermine the man's career, and insult his person. Amazing.

You are so right. Shame on us for mentioning his culpability in a young woman's death, or his enabling of the slaughter of unborn babies, or his drunkenness, or his philandering, or any of the other things that would have killed his political career if he had been a conservative Republican. Or a non-Kennedy.

Fact is, this man rode his family coattails all through his career. The otherwise good people of Massachusetts were idiotic for continuing to re-elect this man.

To get my anger out, I would like to scream and yell at the father. Why did he leave them and go fishing.

I knew it was only a matter of time before someone on this board blamed the father. Anti-male sexism is such an acceptable form of bias in our society.
