Posted in: Snickers owner apologizes after referring to Taiwan as a country See in context

I agree with many of you, Taiwan is a country. In fact it has its own culture, it's own flag and in most cases it's own rules and regulations. China is just butting in and interfering in Taiwans way of life. China is the thug of Asia.

Is it just me or is she gaining some serious weight. She's a phenomenal player but she needs to control her eating so that she can play better.

She's over-rated and her albums sucks. I downloaded it (for free) and it's dull and tasteless.

Posted in: Lawyers say church caused suffering for Abe's alleged killer See in context

mark it is spelled Cult not Colt.

The church is in fault of lord of evil in the present church but the actions of Yamagami were only fueled by his accusations which may or may not be in direct fault of there of. Therefore the UC is not at fault for Abe's murder but the culprit is. What should be amended is new laws outlawing their presence in government and to have their money returned to the senders or lesser... have the pay taxes. Why are they exempt in the first place?

Stop taking meds altogether and focus on natural remedies. This think that we need big pharma is the goal governments want us to depend on. There is a plant for every sickness. All you have to do is research. In fact, there are many channels on YouTube and various TikTokers promoting them.

Personally this thing about letting same sex partners equal rights like normal married couples is so wrong o so many levels.

as I say it over and over, the wages of sin is death. There are many parts to this story we don't know. For all we know she promised him the stars and she didn't deliver. And he took things to a different level. I only hope that he's ready to live with that shame forever. She was too young and she probably didn't deserve that way to die but we can only speculate. Only he and God knows the real story.

It's sad that in Japan if you die in your room no one will find until you're stinking the neighborhood or someone finds you accidentally. This country needs more love.

Unfortunately the laws in Japan are a bit draconian. When a foreigner decides to drive in this country, he is automatically siding with the autonomous laws of Japan. If anyone decides to live here they must abide to the laws and customs of this country. In this case if it were the latter, I'm certain the family would be asking for a very tough sentence. Three years is a slap on the wrist considering he killed two bystanders.

i hear from an investigator that they are also checking records from country of origin including offenses in Japan if you're a foreigner applying for a teaching position employers are granted a website to check that kind of history through the local police. I personally give it a thumbs up.

Japans' social stresses are phenomenal by any standards. Can't get a good job these days unless you know someone or come from a prestigious university. And even then you have to belong to a leading politic sector, it's really messed up.

So does that mean anyone buying tickets gets their refund? Some artist pull that at times, post a tour/sell tickets/this never showing up. That should be punishable by law, it's theft.

Unfortunately her family doesn't live here so they can't really sue (per say). They can claim all they want but won't get any positive result in their behalf. It is sad to say but acceptance and to move on is the most positive approach at this point. I also wanted to mention, do we know why she was locked up? visa over stay? Ilegal misconduct of some sort? If anyone doesn't want to go through similar outcomes, they should play by the rules. Different country different rules.

It's not really even close to a lockdown. I stop cars from other prefectures and make them go back. Fine people if they are not wearing a mask in public. Take stuff more serious... it's really a joke.

Posted in: Man dies after being assaulted, thrown off bridge in Osaka See in context

Apparently the police in Osaka will do their best after they analyze all of the cameras in around that area. There's no way he can get away. Of course we have to assume it was a brawl and nationality will play a big role in this. He is probably lawyering up and awaiting to turn himself in on the pretense of self defense. (questions) why didn't anybody help? Was he alone? Was the other man alone? Was this a hate crime? Was there tension before this fight? RIP is all I can add to this story. Sad to see no one does anything these days. So sad... half of the blame goes to bystanders not doing anything to stop this from going this far.

We have passed the tipping point all we can do now is slow down the effects of what's to come. To save earth is to bring the human population to 2 million from 7.2 billion that is currently in. That's a huge cut but that is what it would take. We are killing our planet earth, sad to say but true.
