Posted in: Thieves arrested after stolen bike shows up for sale on flea market app See in context

Police traced the bike to a housing complex in Izumi and staked out the building.  

In my experience, police in Osaka go all out for stolen bikes and not much for anything else.

Looks for Republican politician in audience that was dead for months before

Calls Kamala the President

Says U.S. has 54 States

Calls Cambodia "Colombia"

Shakes hands with nobody there

Can't exit a stage without going the wrong direction or stumbling

Posted in: Japan cracking down on illegal taxis as tourism boom drives demand See in context

Standard Japanese way to fearmongering, yes they are illegal but not that unsafe. Many countries have airport where operate unlicensed taxis, some even better than licensed taxis because it's operated by senior driver who know cities better than younger driver that operate licensed taxis.

Well several countries have unlicensed taxis that will pick you up from the airport then overcharge you, drive off with your luggage or take you to a spot for someone to rob you. That my friend is unsafe. Better be safe than sorry.

Selective quoting again. I posted many times, that both Biden and Trump are too old to be president again. So how does your propaganda work out I am one of Biden's biggest fans on JT.

It isn't anti-semitism. It's anti Israel and anti-Zionism. Big difference, one is bad but the other is the right way of behaving.

Corrrection: It isn't ALL anti-semitism. I am pretty sure graffiti with swastikas and "Death to Jews" is anti-semitic.

Surging in the US also - especially in Red States...

Jewish people being killed in Blue Cities.

Posted in: Long-suffering Tigers fans ready to roar at Japan Series See in context

The general manager of the Tigers, Shingo Furuya, committed suicide after evidence of the team's blatant dishonesty came to light.

A few jerks in management doesn't represent the team and their fans. Bass is considered a god among Hanshin fans and he himself has zero ill will towards the franchise. He often returns to Japan to watch games at Koshien and does autograph signing events. I met him at a Costco signing years back to promote his beef jerky. He wore his Tigers jersey and shared his great times with the Tigers. I can guarantee you will see him at a game this upcoming series.

I've been a fan of the Tigers for decades and this has been by far the hardest year to get tickets. I was able to win the drawing to the Japan Series in 2014 to every home game easily. This time I failed about 5 drawings and of course it was impossible to get the first come first serve tickets. The hustlers are out in full force though selling tickets for 6 figures on Yahoo Auction. Anyways, Go Tigers!

Posted in: Man on motorbike arrested for groping woman’s buttocks See in context

A friend of mine for a few weeks had a guy on a motorbike grab her behind on her walk home from work. Police did nothing. So her mother decided to get off work early and met her at the station after that. A few months later, her mom had to work late one evening and couldn't get to the station on time. My friend decided to walk home as the guy was nowhere to be seen for months. As she walked home, the same guy immediately came around and grabbed her again. This time her mom went to the police station and raised hell about it. Police patrolled the station the next day and the guy was never to be seen again.

In a way, it's admirable - albeit quite confusing - how the Far Left have been embracing the cause of Palestine.

If only mental gymnastics were an Olympic event, they would get gold medals galore:

Wants Israel wiped off map but don't say a peep about Jewish people and hates Christians

Hates Saudi Arabia for violating human rights/defends Saudi Arabia for not opening their doors to Palestians/wants them in the U.S./wants immigrants out of their "sanctuary" cities

Constantly complain about old people in the government but support Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Nancy Pelosi wholeheartedly

Police said a patrol car noticed the vehicle moving in a “suspicious” manner, without specifying how, at around 3:15 a.m. 

I have been pulled over twice in Japan at night for having an out of prefecture license plate. Then the police proceeded to search my car without asking. This could have been what was "suspicious."

Only progessives are on the Hamas side. Moderates always side with Israel and anyone born and raised in the U.S. should know why.
