if he did this for nutrition and criminal intent is at its' least, why not have him apologize and that's it. Here in this country, people can do just about anything and apologize and go on with it. I think it's all stupid to shun an old person like that, what's the point of Christmas if everyone is gonna act like Scrooges.

Charlie Brown needs updating to better reflect America's demographics in 2022

all we need to ruin Charlie Brown, what are gonna do add a trans-kid, a couple of gay kids and a other-than gender. No we need to stop that kind of thinking and enjoy what we do have.

well I'm sure being a royal gets you better top notch treatment. Remember, we are all considered peasants so we get poor treatment. And yes, it's great the princess is doing better. Our taxes paid for it.

this a high testosterone sport, too much if you ask me. It's over-rated and the sport itself does not match with the Japanese culture.

That's only about 11,000 USD, is that the current value of human life? Should have been at least 100,000 USD and an apology letter. This just makes no sense, just adding insult to injury.

Whoever is in charge of choosing the headline titles should be replaced. One... two, any increase of military presence is something to fear. Being so far away from the main island puts everybody on pins and needles.

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.

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.

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.

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.
