Posted in: Japan voices clear support for Venezuela opposition leader Guaido See in context

Boy, can you imagine the reaction Japan would have if, say, Moon Jae-in called Abe illegitimate and said that he "clearly" supported Kazuo Shii as the rightful leader of Japan?

These kids will probably join the Yakuza and then extort the money from someone else to pay up.

No mention as to whether she's a smoker? I'm assuming she probably doesn't chew tobacco.

I watch NHK and still don't pay. I think I might have cracked the 600,000 yen mark in unpaid NHK fees over the years. Haha, I rule!

The 2020 Olympics can "usher in a new Tokyo"

Or the 2020 Os will be Tokyo's and Japan's swan song.

Thank you for listening.

No problem. Call it charity work for our resident, reality-challenged Russiaphobe.

Posted in: Rubio warns Venezuelan soldiers to let aid enter See in context

US, Russia, China: let Venezuelans decide for themselves.

Like a broken record. They have decided for themselves and any country that the Maduro government invites in is welcome and legit under international law. The U.S.'s action entirely contravene international law. And Little Rubio and his chihuahua yip yip routine is part of this illegal action.

Posted in: Olympic volunteers: One-time chance, or exploitation? See in context

I'd love to be a volunteer and prove the adage: "you get what you pay for." Someone needs to remind these volunteers that they don't have to work hard or much at all. Goof around, enjoy yourself, take selfies with athletes, take long beer breaks and leave early.

Posted in: Interpreter under fire after calling African runners 'chimpanzees' See in context

"I had no intention to discriminate against them and meant no offense. I'm taking a hard look at my careless use of such words."

BS. If I had called this interpreter a monkey in--or outside--my line of work, she'd be calling for me to be fired.

Posted in: After Auschwitz visit, Pence accuses Iran of Nazi-like anti-Semitism See in context

According to Pence's sect of Christianity, tenets that the VP believes in fervently, all Jews that have died and will die are damned to an eternity in Hell for being born Jews unless they accept Jesus as their lord and savior. According to Pence's beliefs, he thinks that most those Jews that died at Auschwitz, the ones that maintained their Jewish beliefs, are now suffering the ultimate form of torture, being burned for eternity in Hell.

Not sure how much more anti-Semitic it can get than that.

Posted in: Trump makes his case for Nobel Peace Prize; says Abe nominated him for it See in context

The Peace Prize should be performance based. The U.S. has increased its bombing of Afghanistan, no agreement with N. Korea, yet, U.S. troops are still In Syria, hell, the U.S. still maintains around 800 military installations in over 70 countries around the world, and, now, the U.S. is tipping its sub-based missiles with low-yield nukes.

Peace Prize FAIL!

I'm not trying to be funny--I'm serious. There are several ailments related to the exposure of pool water chemicals, and cancer hasn't been ruled out.

I, too, wish her a speedy recovery.

It's sad to think that the sport she loves and is so good at could be the cause of this horrible disease.

They also shouted, "Death to the al-Saud."

But are these chants any worse than a U.S. senator chanting, "Bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran?"

Posted in: Japan's stance on Venezuela remains vague See in context

Guaido wasn't even elected as president of the National Assembly, much less president of the country. There's absolute no democratic rational for recognizing him as anything other than a right-wing terrorist representative from a backwater province--or as a CIA asset.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said during a visit to Japan on Monday that Guaido "is the legitimate interim president."

I what world of international law could Gauido possibly be a legitimate president? The guy is a groomed CIA asset.
