Everything has been said already.

Rich-daddy's-kid going on a trip to establish even more family-profit-relationships.

I still wonder why and how this guy is qualified for this "position".

Posted in: Germany honors resisters who tried to assassinate Hitler See in context

Well, looking at everything you posted here, you surely got some (personal?) problems with Germany or the population. Germany is definitely dealing much better and more appropriate with its past than most any other country! No, Germany is not perfect, I agree, but at least "we" don't deny what happened in the past. Concerning reparations and other money issues, everything has been paid to the countries concerned and everything has been sealed and finished with according agreements and contracts.

No, it wasn't a public mandate for him!

Low voter participation, people who don't care (any more) ..... that's the road to his "success"!

Expect things to become even worse than they are now.

No changes to be expected. It's gonna continue the way it has been for the long couple of years. Japanese voters will not wake up.

Kestrel,

Wrong answer. Maybe you should check some decent history books for the facts?

Posted in: Trump tries to distance himself from 'send her back' rally chant; many Republicans alarmed See in context

Just to get back to the topic especially the racial "stuff".

It was racism, he only picked the 4 women who were not white.

There definitely would have been other options ..... I mean there are quite some white women he could blame for various things, too (that's what he likes to do, blame others, right?)!

"The President needs to step back ......"

With all due respect, but let me correct just one word in this sentence:

"The President needs to step down .... ".

He surprises me every day with more negative news (than I ever expected).

"I felt a little bit badly about it. ... I would say that I was not happy with it. I disagreed with it. But again I didn’t say that. They did. And I disagreed with."

Same ol', same ol'! First yes, then no, blame it on others once there is pressure and of course deny, deny, deny. That's Trump's little political world. And his fan-base "activities" remind me very much of those "Bierhaus" festivities roughly 75 years ago.

If it wasn't that serious, I'd call it a joke.

But maybe I should use "him" in the second part of the sentence.

His best foreign buddies are Putin, Kim, that Arab guy and so on.

He's gonna get it his way once again, due to his veto right.

He doesn't care about what's happening in those countries, he only worries about his interests.

What an "oh so tremendously great, knowledgeable" president (NOT!!!!).

"....... mangling and misconstruing many facts  ....." (Trump, of course!)

That definitely describes his presidency until now the best.

Mangling, misconstruing, falsifying, denying, provoking, instigating, bullying .... did I forget any "-ings" that describe him the best?

Posted in: Japan's 2 imperial heirs to fly on separate planes to Bhutan See in context

Will this be a "regular flight", like with JAL or ANA?

Or is this a special plane carrying them to their destination?

If it's a "regular flight" then I don't see any major problem.

Whoever says nuclear energy is safe must be dreaming.

As for now there are no guarantees for safe nuclear energy.

And wish Mrs (!!) Mori lots of success! Set an example for others to follow.

There are alternatives!

So, 4 "of his own" voted against him.

I'd call it a start and hope more Republicans will think more about what is going on.

It shouldn't always be: follow the leader.

Posted in: Trump says he does not have 'racist bone' in his body See in context

Toasted Heretic,

and maybe even then they won't change their attitude. History has proven this.

I only hope that history will not repeat itself!

Quoting Martin Niemoeller:

"First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."

Never let something like this happen again!

"They" keep defending deTrump no matter what!

Deny the facts, just see what you want to see and if anyone has a different opinion tell 'em to "get out of here".

Now, that's what I call an "oh so great (NOT) presidency"!

Posted in: Japan population declines at fastest pace to 124.8 million: gov't See in context

Raising taxes, reducing (or keeping at the same level) salaries, little to no support for families with children (compared with other countries), and so on. Is there anything else to expect? Abe and his cronies finally need to get down from the thrones and start taking action! Increase the money/subsidies families get for their children (Yen 10.000 or so per child/month is just laughable), make education all the way to university level free, stop wasting money for projects that only help the upper class, and so on. But those guys/gals are living in their own little world and don't really care, except for the time when elections are coming up!

Security risks. There weren't any so far.

Japan should stop this "embargo" and SK should stop the permanent complaining.

I am sure Mr and Mrs Watanabe as well as Mr and Mrs Kim are getting sick and tired listening to all this.

"Tokyo-Engr" shares my memories.

Working with a big IBM computer years ago, air-conditioned room, using all kind of "card-producing-equipment", plugging wires in and out .... was quite a challenge.

Nowadays a smart phone has more memory than that room-filling computer had.

Remember this one: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/de/thumb/2/28/IBM_1316.jpg/1024px-IBM_1316.jpg

Trump's Twitter account is nothing but the usual stuff.

Praising himself, what he allegedly achieved and how bad all the others are.

Of course, he can't stand constructive criticism, since he is the "destroyer".

Not even to mention "real wars".

Aren't there more important things to take care of?

But how was that old song again?

So, what are "they" gonna do with all that money?

Increase the retirement for "Mr and Mrs Watanabe" (as well as for others)?

And not just this year or the next, but for many years to come?

I got my doubts. Maybe some of that extra cash will mysteriously disappear in some dark channels?
