Is this the real life?
I see what you did there.

How in the h$ll can a seller of takoyaki make enough to own that much in taxes? Good lord, imagine the total take.

I’m sorry, but what does Trump taxes have to do with Chicago?
PDT makes for useful "Look! A squirrel!" moments.
Because, you know, the violence in Chi-raq started in January 2016. It was as peaceful as a senior citizens home before that.

The US military is one of the most inept forces on the planet...
Compare the track record of "routine" activities and their ratio to accidents that the US military has to ANY other G8 nation and you'll see its hilariously terrible.
There are hundreds of in-flight refueling missions weekly, and it is EXTREMELY rare for there to be mishaps of any kind, much less a Class A.
Other G8 nations get to sit on their keister while the US either provides their defense, contributes significant portions to their defense, or assumes the cost of the R&D that they eventually utilize. And they certainly don't have the in-flight refueling capability that the US does and utilizes far, far, more often than they do.
Its really not that hard to make sure your equipment is up to snuff and that your military service members have adequate training (which, evidently they dont)
Got a lot of experience with IFR, do ya?

Ok... we've all seen ceremonies involving these people. New Years, awards, etc..
How in the h&ll do these things approach even 1/50th of 108,000,000? How much does it cost for over-dressed people to stand around?

Do the Marines have their own boats out scouring the ocean for wreckage?
You mean the USN?

We depend on these men for our nations security.
They died heroes for the USA and Japan. Respect and peace to their families and loved ones.
Why would that be downvoted?

Lots of voting on this topic - a surprising number, over 20, all down-voting any post that suggests that Japan recognise its past and atone. I never knew that JT had so many Japanese nationalist members.
Alternatively, over 20, all down voting any post that suggest Japan apologize and pay restitution... AGAIN.
Maybe it's not "Japanese nationalist members", but instead people who understand that there simply isn't enough "sincere apologies" that would stop this idiocy.

He didn't attend because the helo pilot refused the flight due to low visibility. The alternate plan of driving was discarded because it hadn't been planned and the log-jam it causes in area traffic hadn't been coordinated in advance.

Gee, losing the House is now what is considered a "great night" for the GOP just because they didn't also lose the Senate?
Because, in this day of judicial activism, the Senate is where the real gravy is made via judicial nominations and seating. Congress has gave away it's power to legislate and turned it over to activist judges.
Possibly one more SCOTUS (maybe... maybe even more), or just a few more lower court judges, and it won't matter WHO has a majority in the House. Unless, of course, the decide to start... you know... actually "legislating" again instead of posturing.

And Muller, the floor is yours.
Psssh! If had anything damaging to PDT it would have been "leaked" prior to the mid-terms.

Personally speaking it isnt going to make any bit of difference in the long run right now
Makes all the difference in the world. The GOP maintains, and looks like it might even pick up a couple, in the Senate...
... And the Judicial nomination train will keep on chugging along making ALL the difference in the long-run.

I'm talking about the genuine thing, not the twisted monstrosity that passes for Communism in China
Of course... you have an example, just one throughout history, of the "genuine thing" and it's long term success, right?

It doesn't confirm any thing, except in your own mind. For every 1 sexual assault you think they are soft on, there are 250 success stories.... but you won't hear about them.
Sure, even 1 is to damn many, but there is no indication that the military is "soft on sex crimes".

Fujisawa? Are you crazy? The traffic sucks most of the time, and in the summer it's taken over by snobby surfer types who think they own the damn place.
If you've got to live in this area, try Hayama. The traffic's not nearly as bad and as the closest station is Zushi, you don't get all the clowns walking about.

The fact that there is even a debate about this shows how far society has fallen.

You might wanna reread what he said, compare it to what you misunderstood, and then offer a correction.
Just saying... He in NO WAY insinuated the article was a slight against Japan, nor did he say Tokyo is "less prepared" Contrary... he insinuated they are MORE prepared.

About the tattoos - there was a gang related murder in a parking lot at the beach last year during the peak summer season
Are they also proposing to ban black hair? People under a certain height? Right handed people?
Everyone with a tat is a yak?
Drag yourself into modern times. The vast majority of people with tat's are NOT gang-related in anyway.
Japan, as well as yourself, really needs to get over this prior to the arrival of olympics.

Must be something wrong with me. I found it to be neither funny nor offensive. I certainly didn't find it "racist".
I'm pretty sure the problem is with those that DO find this to be racist and offensive.

Why can't "hafu" embrace their uniqueness in society without demanding society accept and embrace them
In the context of the way you keep using the word "embrace", which isn't even what they are asking for, change "hafu" to "homosexuals", "Blacks", "Gingers", or any other descriptive term and you'll have your answer.
Besides, nobody is asking them to "embrace" anybody. They are asking for acceptance.
Do you go up to someone with brown eyes and treat them differently? How 'bout someone who is taller or shorter than yourself? Left-handed? Right?

What did you do for the planet today?
I picked up a solitary piece of garbage. It was actually a MORE environmentally friendly act than anything Watsons done. He hasn't stopped anything... he hasn't changed anything. He never will because those that he actually needs to get on his side to effect change are disgusted by his pirate tactics.
