Posted in: Man arrested for smuggling gun parts from U.S. See in context

I use to be for guns in America but after seeing what is happening across almost every state, it's time to re-think the design of gun usage in our constitution. The constitution was created years and years ago with the thought of our government acting like China. However, with all of the protections in place now, I think it's time we put down our guns and go outside and play like we did when we were little kids. Better than killing each other for drugs and money.

"China reacted angrily, accusing the U.S. and its English-speaking partners of embarking on a project that will destabilize the Pacific to the detriment of global security."

“I got mad at her because she wouldn’t go to sleep.”

I have to say, Japan has changed a lot since my landing here some 20 years ago.

Reminds me of the case of Chris Watts in America. This is crazy and I cannot understand the mental state of the husbands who can actually do this. And, in this case, the husband was a Police Officer.

I have noticed that people are agitated more than the level of normal due to COVID and other related factors.

We all need to just take a step back and calm down.

Posted in: Japan detects suspected Chinese submarine near southern island See in context

Under international law, submarines passing off the coast of another country are required to surface and show a national flag inside territorial waters.


So, China is testing the waters.

Russia does the same worldwide.

I think there needs to be a warning shot across the horizon to warn these actors that you all just need to stand down.

Or, The USA will act with regional players in Asia to end this cat and mouse game.

Why was the father and son together even after the son was violent to the father and after the police gave a warning to the son to never be violent to anyone or you may go to jail?

So, the three men aged 38, 30, and 49 were alive before taking the shots in August?

Right. No link at all.

They must have died from natural causes.
