To interprate this as anything other than what was exactly said, it disengenous at best, failure of language comprehension and ignorance at least, or outright lying that those very words means Trump is cleared.

Mueller:

Charging the president with a crime was not option from the DOJ. He didn't charge him because he wasn't given the option. He said, so it is Congress's job!

Posted in: The kids aren't alright: Japan struggles to protect its most vulnerable children See in context

There is nothing wrong removing children from abusive homes. The problem is that the alternative is no better. The facilities need programs to prepare these children to be independent. Teach them trades, teach them how to cook and clean for themselves, help them get part-time jobs when they turn 16, teach them about government services available to them, help them save money for their departure and get them involved in community service work.

The current facilities don't provide a means of instilling independence or confidence. If they child's family is messed up and don't want to improve, f$%7 'em and teach the children to do better without them.

Most times, Japanese culture tend to amplify psychological issues because Japanese people prefer to ignore problems and imagine that everything is "Beautiful Japan" than confront them.

If you have access to the internet, you have to pay.

its very easy , if they have no laws that fine you or threaten penalties for non payment then just dont pay its simple. 

When will they start requiring internet and smartphone service providers to add an additional fee in the customer bills? Some people pay ¥1000-¥3000 for the bills. I doubt they are going to want to pay double or triple their current bill.

When will NHK force employers to remove i from their monthly salaries?

Posted in: Nissan, Renault, Mitsubishi Motors discuss Fiat merger proposal See in context

Nissan and Mitsubishi have no choice. Renault is the majority shareholder of Nissan. They have projects together that will keep tied at the hip for decades to come. The merger doesn't directly involve any of the J-companies. If they want get in on it then they will have the opportunity at a later date, but they shouldn't expect to be treated as an equal in this merger. They are not.

I predict Nissan will go running to the J-government crying that it isn't fair for us Japanese. The J-government will probably propose to buy shares in the company, but it won't change the situation. It just means the Renault will never get the majority share or 50% for that matter. The J-government will have no choice, but to claim the automobile industry a national treasure and expel all the foreign devils! LOL!

Where did that other bullet go? Warning shots in an overcrowded city like Tokyo is just asking for trouble. Bad idea! Either shoot the suspect, deescalate the situation or prepare to restrain with batons, tasers, pepper spray, the long pitchfork used in schools, and some combatives.

That is easier said than done because a skilled knife fighter is more dangerous than a gun fighter in mid to close range.

What's bizarre is your assessment of the situation.

The assessment is right on the money! It is common strategy for terrorist to use a minor incident that draws in a larger number of support services, witnesses or spectators. Then they detonate a secondary or larger explosion to attack the surrounding bystanders.

The old man was probably to slow to chase after people in fit of rage. It would be easier to draw people to him.

It would be even sadder if he was one of those senior citizens who are just hoping to get arrested, so they can get a place to sleep and something eat. I guess we will never know now.

Posted in: Rapper Chris Brown skips Paris hearing over rape accusation See in context

She has also represented a woman who alleged she was sexually assaulted at Brown's home during a drug- and alcohol-fuelled party in 2017.

In that case, Gloria Allred and the accuser tried to sue Chris for $17 million dollars because the accuser said it happened at his home. The person who was accused of assault was not charged by the DA's office because of insufficient evidence and discrepancies in the accusers testimony. So after Ms. Allred's press conferences, the DA dropped the case. Ms. Allred and her client missed out on a pay-day. She may be trying to do the same thing with this case.

I don't know if CB is guilty or innocent. However, I do know that celebrities with a history of bad run-ins with the law are preyed upon hustlers and lawyers trying to get a golden ticket. The public might be more willing to believe them ver the accused. Sometimes, they deserve it and other times, they don't. Those troubled celebrities should take some responsibility for continually getting themselves in those types of situations.

If France want to extradite CB to stand trial then we should trade him for a certain pedophile movie director that likes preteen girls. I think that would be fair.

Posted in: 6 Nara deer deaths attributed to plastic in stomachs; tourists cautioned to feed animals properly See in context

An autopsy revealed that the stomach of the animal was almost entirely filled with hardened material that looked like a clump of polyethylene bags. The mass weighed 3.2 kilograms.

It seems like the tourists are not disposing of their trash properly. The deer know that the people are a source of food, so they think everything that people carry with them might be food. Therefore, leaving behind garbage is just asking for trouble. If you don't believe then ask the creatures of the sea. Chinese tourists tend to be the largest contributors to the littering problem in Japan from tourism (ex. plastic bags, drinks, and old luggage).

Yes, Chinese tourist buy luggage in Japan and leave the old tattered luggage outside on the side streets close to businesses and residences. It is has gotten so bad that some hotel chains are offering luggage disposal services because the neighbors are complaining.

Don't allow trash cans or pet bottle recycling bins and place signs everywhere stating to take the trash with them.

Recently, McDonald's Japan was selling a Big Big Mac(not the real name). It was the size of an American homemade hamburger, so I actually tried it. I was quite shocked! So much so I couldn't finish the whole set in one sitting. It didn't feel right.

McDonald's like other chains deal in Shrinkonomics when it comes to proposition. This is why some people don't realize eating too much is unhealthy. It was a real wake up call. After eating that Big Big Mac set, I am glad that I don't a lot of fast food anymore since I moved here.

House Intelligence Committee cancels contempt vote after Barr agrees to provide Mueller documents

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/5/22/1859566/-House-Intelligence-Committee-cancels-contempt-vote-after-Barr-agrees-to-provide-Mueller-documents

According to CNN, the offer from the DOJ came directly from the pressure applied by Schiff. Unlike the earlier subpoena and resulting contempt vote from the House Judiciary Committee, Barr seems to have been genuinely concerned about whatever “enforcement action” Schiff had in mind, and on Tuesday indicated that the DOJ was gathering and preparing the information requested by the committee. 

There you go! You are welcome! LOL!

Those who cry ''Why doesn't Japanese learn English'' crap is the typical loser who have no idea how to fit into the local society and live in foreign country.

Those who cry "We the Japanese..........." are the same loser nationalists and Japan otakus that complain because Japan is usually the academic and physical loser when compare to other countries globally. So, the solution is to bury their heads in sand and scream "You are attacking my culture" to cover up their inadequacies.

Trump declares man he appointed secretary of state 'totally ill prepared and ill equipped' for the job

https://news.yahoo.com/trump-declares-tillerson-secretary-of-state-totally-ill-prepared-and-ill-equipped-for-the-job-133422542.html

President Trump on Thursday lashed out at Rex Tillerson after the former secretary of state reportedly told members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee that Russian President Vladimir Putin out-prepared Trump for their first meeting in Germany.

Trump responded by calling Tillerson incompetent.

“Rex Tillerson, a man who is ‘dumb as a rock’ and totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be Secretary of State, made up a story (he got fired) that I was out-prepared by Vladimir Putin at a meeting in Hamburg, Germany,” he tweeted. “I don’t think Putin would agree. Look how the U.S. is doing!”

If Tillerson was “totally ill prepared and ill equipped” to be the nation’s top diplomat, Trump himself would be to blame.
