But if Bangladesh rejects her application for citizenship then she will be stateless
She has a state: the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham. Otherwise known as ISIS.
Here’s hoping they have lots of cool, Instagrammable stuff to take photos of out there.

No he isn't.
The govt and people say otherwise.
Trump stopped Kim from firing missiles over Japan and bringing peace to the region.

Of course she’s shocked; she, and many others, are used to countries like Britain just rolling over and taking anything that comes their way.
Right now the imams are preaching that the UK will one day be a Muslim country, and their followers take that to heart. They’re not there to take part, they’re there to take over.

Time for certain Japanese companies (you know who you are) to stop secretly making their products in China, finishing them in Japan and then claiming they’re “Made In Japan.”
The trade war with China should be helping Japan, not harming it.

Sadly, the cons outweigh the pros when it comes to kids and smartphones. They spend almost all their time on them playing video games or checking Instagram. Some students are good and won’t use them in class, but bratty students won’t think anything of it, and God save you if you take it away. These are the kind who’ll verbally assault their teacher (remember the kid who got KO’d by the teacher last month for fighting about having his against-school-rules earring taken away?)
Smartphones are highly addictive, especially for the young, and even stunt their mental development.

That's still one hundred and six people you know nothing about, moving around your country unaccounted for.
Funny how that’s bad in Japan but just fine in the US (and with millions of more people, I might add).

With anyone else in office, Lil Kim would still be shooting missiles over Japan.
Trump did sth about it, so it makes sense Abe would be grateful.

Cherry blossoms are beautiful, but over-hyped/marketed heavily
They are latched onto by marketers, but sakura have a longer history than that too.
Any amateur student of Zen can tell you the sakura symbolizes the impermanence or fleeting nature of beauty and life.

This is a political game, not anything to do with real victims or historical problems. It’s right wing.
This is not left or right wing. China and North Korea are communist countries but socially conservative; are they right wing or left wing?
Kind of hard to get tho ha straight when we view politics on a continuum. The truth is, the political spectrum is an oval. Go too far to the left or right and they meet at the same place: utopian totalitarianism.
What South Korea is engaging in is just the usual grievance mongerinh to distract people there from their economic woes.

The US is a representative democracy, not a direct one. Didn’t you guys figure that out when all the sore losers called for the end of the Electoral College?
Trump won, get over it. And no, it wasn’t because of Russia, it was “the economy, stupid.” He promised a wall, and unlike every other presidential candidate that gives up on his campaign promises, Trump is trying to actually fulfill one. Novel idea, right?

@Crazy Joe, while there is truth to that, Chavez was also inept and ran the government into the ground himself with plenty of bad economic decisions, and Maduro is no better (actually, he’s worse).

The Dems are going to alienate swing voters and independents with stunts like these. At least Trump has the excuse of fighting for his campaign promise. The #resistance will eat this up, but old-school Dems will not.

As long as they think they can get away with, South Korea will keep playing the victim to get free money.
The whole world sees through this act by now. South Korea is becoming an embarrassment.

It seems Korean products are taking over in the States. What gives?
They’re cheaper, so they appeal to the budget-conscious.
If people want a Japanese four-door they’re more likely to get a Honda or Toyota over a Nissan, but I suppose the Sentra has its fans.

Instant karma, on steroids.

Trump’s haters think way, way more about him than Trump’s followers do. They draw comics about him (one that runs daily), they dedicate graffiti to him, they make balloons out of him, they dress up like him, they wear shirts about him, they post incessantly on social media about him, they can’t get through a day without talking about him.
I don’t think the “ignoring” route is going well.

Well what do you expect from an institutionally misogynistic and sexist society
At the end of the day, the JT crowd reveals what it thinks. Most of you hate Japan and Japanese culture. I hate to say “Love it or leave it” but if you’re not really obligated to be here...
That’s what all this talk of “progress” and “change” is about. But if you change Japan’s social constructs to match your new social constructs, then what? Japan won’t be Japan anymore. Four seasons and sushi does not a culture make.

The Democratic Party is barreling towards a schism between the progressives and the neolibs. Most likely Trump will not be impeached or indicted by Mueller, but the progs won’t accept anything less.
When the neolibs can’t deliver on that, all hell will break loose and millions of far left voters will turn their backs on the Pelosis abs Schumers (if they haven’t already). Bernie Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez will say they’re ashamed of the party and the schism will become official. The decades-long streak of Dem solidarity is unraveling before our eyes, which Trump will stoke and feed off. Their resulting lack of productivity will only make it easier for him in 2020.

There is little doubt that amongst large parts of the population Trump will be the most hated President in the history of the country.
Life seems that way in an echo chamber.
Though to be fair, he is very much hated by progressives. But that's only because he's a caricature of a typical American, and progressives hate traditional America and anything that stands in the way of them destroying it, I mean, progress.

Good. The Dems won't give Trump any concessions, so he shouldn't give them any back. Not like they unironically celebrate Christmas anyway.

I’d love to know how Russia “crippled” the US with its Facebook ads (is the Zuck in Putin’s pocket too? Cambridge Analytica (the same help they gave to Obama), never forget.
Obama mocked Romney mercilessly for saying Russia was a threat. “The ‘80s calles and they want their foreign policy back.” Why the flip flop? Why the Second Cold War? I thought progressives (read: Socialists) detested the Red Scare?
Progressives are in a state of schizophrenia. Is this about Russia or Putin’s macho posturing?

Reality is what you make it; case in point, the comments section here. No matter what Trump does, the N.P.C.s claim "Orange Man Bad".
How about this: this is what Trump ran on; America First. It's the same thing George Washington warned us against, namely foreign entanglement.
The sad reality though, is that if we leave then someone else will just fill the void. Now it's an all-out fight between Russia, Iran, and Israel to take Syria.
Well, let them fight, I say.

This is a scam, just like illegal immigration is in the US.
But just like in the US, this will do irreparable harm to Japan’s culture. Japan is one country that has so far staved off the false promises of globalism. Japan’s mono-culture is what makes it Japan. A nation’s shared language and culture is what makes it a nation. Chip away at those and the country begins to unravel. The melting pot doesn’t work; all the ethnicities just Balkanize themselves. Just look at France.
If this continues, Japan will no longer be Japan.

Posted in: Japan fears a half-baked, deceptive agreement which leads to the Trump administration taking a soft line on North Korea by removing economic sanctions without serious progress on disarmament. That would be the nightmare scenario.
