There have been zero court cases

Not entirely true.

Nothing else happens.

Unless you're a high-profile individual.

Stupid law that forces her to choose. She would be the perfect person to challenge the law if she had the guts. Much like Miyazawa Rie did to get pubic hair back in magazines.

All fans with tickets for a cancelled match will receive a full refund for the face value of their match tickets.

And for those who bought scalped tickets at more than face value...LOL.

Really. I'm really sorry I gave you too many dots to connect. Hint: Trump had nothing to do with the "victory," ergo your continued OCD vis-a-vis Putin and imagined master puppetry is, well, just sad. I guess I should pity you.

Trump - doing his best to complete that accomplishment punch list that Putin gave him in 2017....

Given that this WTO dispute was initiate on 6 October 2004, your comment is the epitome of ignorance.

Split the islands down the middle, give one to SK and one to Japan, and tell them both to STFU about it forever or they both forfeit them to the UN.

Posted in: Hong Kong police slammed as 'trigger-happy' after teen shot See in context

As clearly seen in the TV footage, the police officer was cornered and surrounded by about 6 armed rioters and one of the rioters attacked and hit the police with a baton/metal pole. So the officer should have allowed himself to be brutally assaulted and injured or maybe killed ? 

The rioters had already assaulted a citizen that they THOUGHT was a Chinese official.

Exactly! If I were that poor cop, I would have shot the punk in the face.

Nobody should be playing in the waters of Takatsuki. Remember when it came out that the Matsushita (Panasonic) plant there was dumping cancer-causing waste in the water supply?
