I didn't hate him as Superman but Ben Affleck was such a terrible Batman I'd rather leave this whole era of DC films behind us.

Posted in: Cruel yet popular punishment: Japan's death penalty See in context

The story directly above this one in today's news feed was about a man who killed and dismembered nine people, eight of whom were women who were all sexually assaulted.

Is death too great a punishment for him?

NHK may have made sense in the 1950s but now it's nothing less than a scam.

A good link, thanks. It makes a possible breach in etiquette completely forgivable since he was following the lead of his host.

Posted in: Do you support legalized casino operations in Japan? See in context

I'm in favor of opening casinos in Japan myself.

There is a lot of tourist money that goes into the country hosting the casinos. More than is spent at the gambling tables. There is the entertainment around the casinos, the hotels, restaurants, cabs and airfare. People who visit to gamble may easily take a short trip somewhere else in the country and spend even more money here. All that money is going to go somewhere in Asia, why not have it come to Japan?

As far as the casinos ruining the fabric of society goes I'm not worried in the least. I don't see how having one or two cities with casinos will be worse than the pachinko halls that we already have every couple of blocks.

The last time I stopped at the police box to ask directions while cycling they accused me of stealing my own bike and I had to wait ten minutes while they checked the registration of the bike and my ID.

Posted in: Netflix may fix Japan movie-financing dilemma: director Kawase See in context

Netflix will kill the movie industry and the creativity with it (well, America already lost her creativity in the movie industry, all you see is superhero movies and remakes).

I have to disagree, I have enjoyed a lot of the programming on Netflix more than the recent big budget movies.

It seems like just last week China was threatening the US with "revenge".

Fine with me if America cuts off all business with them.

Posted in: Madonna on Trump victory: 'Women hate women' See in context

There is a long list of things I don't like about Clinton.

She voted for the war in Iraq, she supported TPP (until it was an election year) and she is very friendly with Wall Street and I suspect owes people there favors. Worse of all she cheated to win the primary and then rewarded Wasserman Schultz for helping her do it.

Then there are the e-mails and a lot of other things I don't have time to list.

She lost to Trump because she was a very bad candidate.

Duterte called Putin a Hillbilly the other day.

As a hillbilly myself I can only assume that Duterte wanted to complement Putin's honesty and work ethic.

I'm sick of hearing about Trump saying stupid things and Clinton doing questionable things, North Korea and bad economic news.

Pokemon Go doesn't make my list.

Not to condone his actions in anyway but the taxi drivers around Minato-ku love taking people the long way after midnight.

Posted in: Democrats in disarray on eve of convention to nominate Clinton See in context

Then Clinton promptly hired her "long time friend" Wasserman Shaluz. I don't want to vote for Trump but I also don't want to vote for someone who has to cheat to get elected.

On a side note Julian Assange from Wikileaks said the next emails he releases will be worse for Clinton.

Posted in: Tokyo governor apologises again for spending on luxury hotels, pajamas See in context

As long as Japan keeps letting it's politicians get away with an apology this kind of thing will keep happening (and to be honest is probably happening now with a hundred other people who are not in the news today).

I makes me angry that in these economically uncertain times the tax payers are being robbed by our elected leaders. As I see it the solution is long prison terms.

Posted in: Sanders victorious in Michigan; Trump keeps winning See in context

Ahem,

Clinton had accumulated 1,134 delegates 455 of which are super delegates.

That's important to note since the super delegates can change their mind anytime before the Democratic Convention. Without the super delegates the race is much closer and a win in Michigan for Clinton doesn't end the race.

Posted in: Would you like to see Donald Trump become the next U.S. president? See in context

I don't want Trump. Then again I don't want Clinton either.

Between the two I'm slightly more likely to to vote for Clinton although I'll probably just stay home.

Posted in: Clinton slams unrealistic Sanders 'promises' in debate See in context

I think Sanders clearly has a better record of supporting minority groups in America. In 1963 he was marching with Martin Luther King Jr. A year later Clinton was campaigning for the Presidential bid of Barry Goldwater, who's platform included re-segregation America.

And yet the minority groups in America, who ironically would benefit the most with Sanders as President, support Clinton. Why? Because they are generally poorer and less well educated and get more of their information from mainstream media instead of the internet. And until very recently the main TV news and newspapers have been doing their best to ignore Sanders.

As of this week they no longer have a choice and have to cover him. Hopefully the addition exposure will melt Clinton's lead in those groups and leave her with the backing of the people who should be supporting her, the .01%.

Posted in: Pacific rim nations sign TPP deal amid protests See in context

Seems like the TPP is all about America needing to let several countries be enslaved in order for them to try to compete with China.

I disagree, I'm expecting the American working class the be the biggest loser in this deal. It will be good for corporate America which is bad for, well, pretty much everybody other than corporate America.

Posted in: Clinton, Sanders go at each other over gun control, health care See in context

I haven't have time to watch the whole last Democratic debate yet. But my favorite part of what I saw so far was Clinton saying "I know how much money influences the political decision making".

Haha. She knows and we know she knows. In fact I'd say she's an expert in how big money influences decision making.

That was also the last time I cared about their guide.

Posted in: Obama upbeat on prospects for TPP deal See in context

What makes you think the Republicans don't want the TPP?

As far as I know it is one of the few things that Obama and the Republicans agree on with most of the opposition to it coming from inside the Democratic party. Bernie Sanders is the strongest voice against the TPP deal and the only real choice if you want an America that isn't controlled by the corporate elite.

Posted in: Mexico issues warrant for extradition of escaped 'El Chapo' See in context

Mexico would be better off to let him serve his time in America first since he doesn't have such an extensive criminal empire to break him out there. I also suspect that an America maximum security prison is harder to escape from then one in Mexico.

*Punishment as a deterrent doesn't work.

Hence why most countries have abolished the death penalty*

I disagree, there have been zero cases of someone receiving the death penalty and going on to become a repeat offender.

I would prefer that to having this girl back on the streets in a few years.

Posted in: Clinton to make boosting wages central to her economic plan See in context

As usual Clinton will say what the polls tell her to say and do what her corporate sponsors tell her to do.

In my opinion Sanders is the only candidate who will fight for the 99%.
