Posted in: Pre-Olympic hotel building boom also needs to consider post-Olympic downsides See in context

The owner of a Ginza nightclub tells the magazine, "I have no problem with entry by foreign companies or Japanese hotel majors; but once the Games are over, I expect the 'cuckoo will tweet' (i.e., the places will be close to empty), and -- mark my words -- eventually some of these places will wind up being put to use as love hotels."

convert the hotels into affordable housing or brothels. or both. business, up front; party in the back.

Knowing Trump, I doubt it, as a New Yorker, concrete is in their blood.

trump's already enlisted the barefoot, shirtless, toothless herds from his rallies. all he has to do is organize a square dance and they're all in. throw in some possum road kill & moonshine to sweeten the pot. promise to legalize incest and it'll be "yeehaw!"

...and of course you can not explain why exactly that would be the case.

for t-Rump "the wall" is just another property development scam that he can use to line his pockets with more taxpayers' money. he's already figured out which cheap building materials to use and which workers to stiff. those MAGA hatted suckers will still be chanting "lock her up" when he absconds with all the money in the federal reserve wired to his swiss bank accounts like every other 3rd world dictactor.

Let the Democrats try, since they’re inept at everything except for wanting to hold investigations and since the last shutdown didn’t do the damage they had hoped for, let’s see if they want to try a second time especially with what’s at stake.

remember when tricky dicky said he wasn't a crook? tweetledumb donald isn't even try to float that lie.

Insane WayneToday 07:26 am JSTPutin is going to annex the Ukraine. Trump is too busy to stop him and the Europeans are too weak. It will probably be fairly peaceful because resistance would be futile.

The Kremlin will annex the Ukraine on Trump's watch. He's been laundering their money for years. They own him like a kept slave.

if wikipedia is to be believed, the aichi expo in 2005 cost 340 billion but, because of better than expected turnout netted a profit of 10 billion. spend 340 just to make 10, unexpectedly? it doesn't seem like a very wise course of action.

military-types tend to not respond well to defiance, disobediance and other forms of "insubordination". combine that with a teenager who may or may not be going through the phases of rebellion. a volatile cocktail, to be sure.
