We know these guys are valuable but without Judge the Yankees don't win the AL East. With Ohtani, the Angels still were way under .500. Judge plays in a tougher division and his WAR numbers speak for themselves.

Posted in: Woman dies after falling out of moving car; driver arrested See in context

I find it hard that the driver could push someone out, especially if they were wearing a seat belt. I've been in a car arguing with a woman a couple of times and the first time the woman grabbed the steering wheel and almost made me drive off into a small canyon. After that incident, when requested to stop, I did just that. She got out and then I kept going. This guy should have done the same thing.

What would the US do, if for example, Cuba and China were to hold a huge military exercise in international waters right off of Florida?

Cuba? And China? Laugh at the level of dysfunction.

My company would have walked all over its foreign workers were it not for our strong union. They wouldn't even provide a decent place to sit down in some offices. I wish these guys the best and I hope to see more bold action like this from other workers in professions and industries.

Just wondering but are the cops they were going to send trained in crowd control? Seems to me there's a big difference between a traffic cop and a guy in the narcotics division. Not sure just sending in more cops could have prevented this tragedy.

I think you mean if you’re a hetero guy living anywhere else but Japan. The quickest way to get into a Japanese girl’s (shouldn’t say anything dirty) heart is to act like a sweet man child. Why else would you take your Japanese wife to Disneyland for your anniversary?

Yeah. I see your point.

Okinawa, for me is number one without a doubt. Nice weather year round, friendlier people, lower cost of living, not overly crowded, beautiful seas, a better mix of people, good nightlife, marine sports.

JayToday 09:45 am JST

Classic Japanese subjectivity. How are we supposed to know what makes particular individuals feel "uneasy"? Does, say, having a beard and being muscular make people feel uneasy?

Good point! Just being other than Asian-looking is enough to make a lot of folks stare and forget to breathe, spill their One Cup on themselves, dash for cover, leave the metro area, move to another planet. Is the hairy guy in the Snow White costume supposed to take responsibility for all that?

Peter NeilToday 11:05 am JST

I don’t understand the goal. Blacks are 13.5% of the US population. Is the goal over representation?

> It seems as if Hispanics (who mostly identify as white) and Blacks have gone the route of creating their own networks that exclude whites in their programming.

> The press and academia in the US are too fixated on race.

This is what people always want to point to nowadays but they get amnesia about how it was for a hundred years. I remember when MTV was created and you couldn't find a black or Hispanic person. To add to your point: The press and academia have always been fixated on race and usually excluded non-whites as much as possible. The goal is to be completely fair, which is unlikely to happen, but white men are the ones who traditionally have been way over represented. Don't see how people can't understand that.

Overreactions abound. There are drunk and disorderly up there every weekend and when vandalism, etc happen on those days, it isn't associated with anything. Anywhere you go, more people usually equals more trouble? Just have fun and don't be a party pooper.

Posted in: Japan temporarily closes Haiti embassy as security worsens See in context

> JayToday 07:07 pm JST

Of course, all of this started with the Haiti Massacre of 1804, when Jean-Jacques Dessalines ordered the indiscriminate bloody massacre of all white Haitians, despite the majority of whom being openly in opposition to the rule of King Louis XIV and highly sympathetic to the anti-slavery movement.

> Good luck finding any of that in any modern woke-plagued history books, but regardless, for the nation that still worships Dessalines as some sort of noble hero, such utter calamity should come as no surprise.

If you want to find utter calamity, look at the past two world wars and the one coming up, all centered in Europe in so-called developed countries.
