What’s HE going to do? Go after the groups that are attacking Jews and Christians in their churches? He isn’t going to do that.

Well, either the numbers are lying or these guys can’t shoot straight. Because the shootings sure are high.

“impeachment tied to his legacy”
Yes, but like everything else in these times, “impeachment” will take on a weaker image. And one that’s very partisan.

Yes, we are told violence is dropping. Hmm..I wonder why.

Even if Christmas celebration is BS in Japan ( btw, pretty much BS in North America now anyway), still, STILL, it makes winter blues a little more tolerable. I mean check the mood in Japan about January 10. Just awful. Unless you’re in some ski resort. Actually the mood is bad right after Christmas Eve ends, although New Years provides a slight - though sleepy - mood lift.
And, btw, you can’t compare Japan New Years to western Christmas. There isn’t much cheer to it. I mean, you don’t see Japanese going around saying Happy New Year to clerks in shops. It’s an in-family thing only. And a week long break from workaday life. And there’s no music. Really Christmas is unique in the world. It has music - carols and songs by the 100s. No other holiday event is comparable to Christmas anywhere.

People just have to accept the fact that Trump will be re-elected in 2020. Okay, so you have 5 more years to get ready for 2024.

Starbucks reflection again: The distance Christmas songs have gone from being religious is really mind-boggling.
Anyway, the fact they don’t ignore Christmas is still impressive to me. Nobody let’s go of this event which is unrivaled by any other holiday. Just to think: There is MUSIC about Christmas - 1000s of songs, while other holidays have no music at all.

Starbucks in Japan has allowed this song and Last Christmas to dominate their Christmas music. Both by covers of them AND by the originals. Used to be Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin etc.. But they’ve been nixed.

Yes. They will say a hateful commentator was influenced by so-and-so’s platform, and then use the violent language of the commentator as an excuse to de-platform.

The media have been against Trump since The Apprentice days. On the first day of his presidency, the left had a 200,000 people demo., in effect against his election, with huge coverage and support from the media.
So, why shouldn’t Trump supporters dislike the media??

Is it okay to call a person who is queer “ A queer”?
Years ago, “queer” was derogatory slang for a homosexual.

Racist comments are not okay. And I do not make racist comments. But to say that a person of color can present themselves as a Caucasian, and the opposite is not true is inequality. In fact, it could be considered discrimination in reverse.

That’s a good excuse!
Sun damage to skin is relatively recent ( decades) news. Japanese women have been trying to look white for most of the past 100 years.

I depends if there’s racist intent or not. And if a black person is making up as a white person, it won’t draw criticism.

How about Japanese women trying to make themselves look white - parasols, makeup? You okay with that? I’ve always thought it’s ridiculous.

I think there‘s nothing wrong in showing the shaping of a character who turned bad - on how he turned bad. There are two issues here - it’s about guns, and the killer is white. The left is always deriding white males and it is afraid this will influence some whites males into copying these atrocities. Note: mass killers in the US are usually marginalized, lonely young white men who grew up feeling rejected.

These guys are all older than Donald Trump. Just consider that. Actually, as a person who enjoyed the Stones in their heyday, I think it’s almost a kind of insult to their own legacy and to their great music that they still continue to “perform” that music today. My God, leave it alone! Are young people attending a Stones concert now expected to believe they are experiencing anything whatsoever of what the Stones or their contemporaries were 40 or 50 years ago?

zichi, he said nothing in any of those cases that could be defined as “racist”

We know all about his locker room humor which he can’t keep there.
But that’s not racist. In fact, Trump criticized Harvard and Ivy League schools in general for setting higher admission standards for East Asian applicants - and setting lower standards for other minorities.
On that, East Asians can claim true racism on the part of those liberal universities. Because that is where it really is. Trump would never do anything to discourage East Asian applicants, and they know it.

A lot of pressure on Naomi Osaka to prove that ranking.
A world no.1 ranking should mean you can generally be counted on to win. But right now, there are lots of women out there who can beat Osaka.

Yeah, I remember Easy Rider. I liked his father’s movies too, especially Grapes of Wrath from depression years. So, it was sad for me to learn from this that Peter’s mother had a nervous breakdown from learning of Peter’s father’s extramarital affair. And that she later killed herself with a razor blade to her throat. This was more shocking than the news of Peter’s death. He was only 10 when he lost his mother. Not sure if he knew why.
