Posted in: Beyond Netflix: A look at what you get with new streamers See in context

Seth and everyone else, honest question: Are streaming services "fleecing" us? Should we not pay to be entertained? It seems that the advertising model is dying out, so how else does content get paid for?

Posted in: Starbucks becomes latest target of Hong Kong protester rage See in context

Billionaire corporations speaking at a human rights council... I guess everyone is entitled to free speech, but it's obvious that all these corporate bodies care about is money, not human rights. And where does their power come from? Selling coffee and desserts? How does that give them any moral authority? Vandalism is most likely not the answer, but it certainly is an understandable reaction by a "little guy" to a behemoth who is actively trying to take away their rights.

What about using your keitai's map app? Not typing in information, but having it open and on display. Surley that will be allowed.

I bet she was using her cellphone while driving. I see it all the time while cycling. Horrible.

Man, could he write songs - beautiful, depressing songs. I've always wondered that if he could have overcome his depression... I dont know... could you imagine happy tunes by this guy? What a wonderful thing they would have been to hear.

Posted in: Ex-Nissan boss Ghosn served 4th arrest warrant; calls it 'outrageous' See in context

I get the hostility toward the Japanese criminal justice system, but given its heavy-handed methods, it still doesn't mean that Ghosn is innocent of any of these crimes. He's being charged with funneling a massive amount of money from the company to his family. Sounds like something that needs to be investigated to me.

Great news for Tamawashi. Why is this news of the National Sport relegated to the back pages?

Posted in: Senate seeks solution to open U.S. government; Trump insists on wall See in context

Bass for Funk,

Maybe you don't know, but it is Congress's job to apportion money and the executive's job is to see that that money is effectively spent in the way that Congress intended it as written in the law. In America the president's veto power gives him the power to sway how the money is apportioned, but to demand money is not really in the job description.

If Trump wants money for the wall, let him build a coalition that will pass a regular bill that funds the needed money. Let him keep making the case under normal Congressional procedure, not try to attach it to the government funding bill. He's hostage taking.

Trump can't win because he's boxed himself into a corner. Aynthing he does seems fesperate and foolish at this point. When will the sanate grow a spine and bust open the investigation?

Hi Scrote: Yeah, but imagine if it was enforced. What do you think about it helping the concept of the virtuous inflation cycle?

Posted in: Kuroda warns of risks from falling regional banks' profits See in context

What do you think of this idea:

If the BOJ wants inflation and there is the nationwide problem of too much overtime, why don't they force companies to pay properly for overtime work. Employees would have more money and the companies would have to raise prices to compensate for the extra salary expenditures. There's your virtuous inflation cycle. Any comments are welcome.
