Posted in: Back home from Hanoi, Trump faces more political headwinds See in context

I was there when he landed, everyone gave him a slow clap. It was tremendous.

What? Bezos cheated on his wife? No elected official should be allowed to continue on in their position after doing such a sleezy, POS thing like that.

Posted in: EU rebuffs May; says no-plan Brexiteers deserve 'place in hell' See in context

Will I get more bang for my buck before or after a hard Brexit? That's what I want to know. And will this stop any sort of Spice Girls reunion? I hope it does.

Posted in: Senate rebukes Trump over Syria, Afghanistan pullouts See in context

Trump doesn't give a rat's tail about what any of you think. He has one master, and one master only... Putin. Why else would he be pulling back America's defense shield? The basket full of deplorables that support him are too stoopid for the most part to know that the troops placed around the world are not there protecting the states they're in, they're projecting US power and influence. Do any of those countries want them there? Funny how it's turned the tables on a lot of left-leaning thought. Bringing home the troops used to sound like a great idea, but now that we see it's Putin that is pulling the strings, and Putin wanting the collapse of the "global police force", perhaps it isn't such a good idea, right? I for one would like to see it, just to see how it all plays out. Bring them home from Korea. Bring them home from Japan, from all of their almost 800 bases worldwide. And what will all of these returning troops do once the juicing of the economy has fizzled out and there are no jobs? Start more wars, cuz that's what America does. Rinse and effing repeat.

Posted in: Foreign media reporting conditions in China worsen, group says See in context

Arbitrary arrests are back, but now they're taking foreign nationals. Look at what's happening to the two Canadians (and the third on death row). No question things are bad and only getting worse as China's true colours begin to show. Funny that it is all in the name of capitalism. Now that is rich!

Posted in: Kyoto aiming to disperse crowds to ease 'overtourism' See in context

Start sending them to China, apparently it's going to be even more popular than Paris. But, oh, most of the tourist hordes are Chinese. Well, give them some diapers and send them packing. Can't stand going to Japan these days as a result of the hordes. Forget it! It was much more peaceful a decade and a half ago.

Posted in: Trump says Japan treats U.S. unfairly on trade by not taking more American cars See in context

I can remember seeing a big yellow Hummer (not the smaller SUV, but one of the big ones) in the town I lived in (a suburb or Osaka). It was hysterical. Took up 3/4 of every street it was on, and I'm talking both sides of the road. It just made me howl. Kind of like getting a 60 inch tv for a shoe box Japanese apartment. Just too much. Good luck with that Drumph.

Posted in: With 'America First,' where do human rights rank? See in context

Pot crazy Canada pointed out some human rights violations being committed by the Saudis this past summer. The US didn't want to hear it then either. Nothing but crickets from the "world's greatest power." Your time is ending fast with this nutter in charge.

Posted in: U.S. soldier’s failed attempt to give Japanese policemen some cool drinks impresses internet’s heart See in context

I think these photos make it clear the US no longer has any friends in the world, let alone a best friend. They're even being jerks to Canada. So what is really happening here is the cops are saying "Water? You offer us water? No, we don't want anything from you. Please go away and tell that moron in charge there to quit before they get proof on the Russia pee tape incident."

"there will always be that first gun no matter what."

Thanks to you bozo Americans, it is certainly coming true in Canada. This wasn't always the case. Just get rid of them all. Have the cops go in and WACOfy those who won't give up their guns. Sure, it'll take some time, and a lot of people are going to die, but that's happening already.

Posted in: NFL players, owners defy Trump on anthem protests See in context

Just stop playing the national anthems at all. What has sport to do with nationalism, anyways? Ok, sure for the Olympics, or some world events, fine. But why bother in a regular league game? Ya, America, we know you love your stupid national anthem and flag. So what? So stoopid.

Posted in: Japan’s Unique Skin Girls bring their brightly colored complexions out to streets of Tokyo See in context

Every generation needs to be embarrassed about something from their younger years. I imagine this will be it for some. Still, pretty cool looks. Hope they're having fun. Still, I pray this doesn't catch on like the fidget spinner. Don't imagine it will though.

As for me, I love the traditional look, (i.e., black hair, plain makeup, a little subtleness). It's probably rarer than the look these girls are sporting.

Posted in: Apple out to renew iPhone frenzy at age 10 See in context

Got a lift in my brother-in-law's BMW (bought used), and I marvelled at the car phone that was still installed (though not working, of course). Pretty amazing that people used to put phones in their cars. I know my father had one in the early 90s. I'm sure there were large briefcase-sized phones available in the 70s and 80s (for sure by the 80s). I'm sure that you could run up to $100,000, or close to it, if you'd started buying cell phones and the cell planes available from back then until now. Not all that far fetched people.

Posted in: Canada's top marijuana producer to double production See in context

Too bad this is all just a money maker. Sure, the tax windfall will be great, but weed should be less than a buck a gram. What other weeds sell for $80/7grams? None that I'm aware of.

Posted in: White House defends Trump's response to Virginia violence See in context

Think of all the American WWII vets that went to war and died to remove Nazi filth from the face of the earth. Go figure, it's now controlling the presidency and a good chunk of an American political party. Disgusting! Just filth. But one thing will at least be certain, this is going to draw Republicans onto a right and wrong side of history. At least we'll know who the real racists are (and yes, Black Label, I count you amongst them, but don't worry, you can be proud of it, at least for now).

Posted in: N Korea dismisses Trump's threat; says only 'absolute force' can work with him See in context

If war does break out I hope that the legions of Trump supporters line up in droves at military offices across the US, or better yet, that military conscription is set along party lines. Nobody but the morons who voted for Trump should be put on the front lines of this one.

If he worked in the evidence room, I'd suggest taking a look see around his home, to see what else he has that he has no idea of what it is.

Don't worry North Korea, you can put your ICBMs away now. Nothing to be worried about now from the big, bad US Navy. Can't even avoid run ins with container ships. I guess that is pretty scary.

Ahhh heat waves. Makes me chuckle in fear that the "weather people" in my area are always so happy to be breaking records. Ha, what a bunch of idiots.

Posted in: U.S. prepared to use force against N Korea: U.N. envoy See in context

"but it is very unlikely the US is going to allow them to deploy"

Um, the US Navy can't even avoid massive container ships these days, I'm sure a NK vessel of some sort could get through just fine.

Posted in: Trump on Russian election meddling: 'Nobody really knows for sure' See in context

Let's just face it, the election was rigged. Trump called it. He already knew. Hopefully he doesn't destroy the world in the next four years and that Americans will get their heads out of their asses and not re-elect this con man again.

Posted in: U.S. prepared to use force against N Korea: U.N. envoy See in context

One of the most intelligent things I've heard from the talking heads on CNN, is that if NK really wanted to attack the US mainland, all they'd need is something like the old SNL Yard-apult (I added that, not the CNN guy) fastened to the deck of a ship and voila. They could just lob the nukes right into California if that was the choice. To think that the US is only now in danger is ridiculous. They've been in danger for years but had no idea. Go figure.

Posted in: Trump slams Obama, demands 'apology' over Russia probe See in context

I don't think Trump is worried about collusion (though I'm sure he doesn't know what it means). I think he's more worried about the footage of him with Russian whores urinating on the bed the Obama's slept in, while he chants some derogatory stuff about the then POTUS. Trump is a dirt bag. Plane and simple. Still, I don't know that his supporters would care less. The David Dukes of the world love the guy. And let's face it, with he world going the way it is, it has the white man scared cuz he ain't getting his as much, which just breeds more David Dukes. Not sure why the slack-jawed yokel woman support the Donald. America is a strange place right now. Very strange.
