Posted in: Accused groper hit, killed by train after jumping onto tracks See in context

"Clever way to eliminate a business rival" was what I first thought.

Death by train is harsh if this late soul was guilty, and I assume all are innocent until guilt is proven.

Bertie? Hurting Japan is also an attack on the US.

Kids tend to break Pepper's fingers out of excitement.

I've seen a high tech gift store uncrate one in Santa Monica ... I hope it survives.

Something is happening with new Toyotas and unintentional reverse at speed ... we had two similar incidents in my extended family with Lexus RX350s months apart in California.

That car's black box needs looking into.

It's really close to the Blossom hotel. Just wow. Very glad no one was hurt.

I'm sure it will get fixed quickly.

Posted in: Honda looks to revamped Acura NSX to fire up brand See in context

It is too busy. And normal sized folks could never fit in it. To be specific, us folks who could afford to buy one, can not get in and be comfortable driving the car. BOTTOM LINE.

Acura needs to update the 1987 Legend Coupe along the lines of Toyota's GT86. Make it retro with a race focused interior that is able to accept modular upgrades. EG A racing gas tank with room for two spares in the trunk. EG Light weight carbon fiber targa roof. EG An easy in bolt in roll cage for safety. ETC.

Posted in: Campaign, party officials insist Trump getting back on track See in context

Trump's appearance informs everyone he listens to no one but himself.

His daughter is beasties with Putin's girlfriend.

I can't name one group of Americans he hasn't insulted.

Flood victims are not impressed by Play-Doh™ as a rule.

The man is a failure many times over, and clearly learnt nothing from those experiences.

Posted in: Biden's remark on Japan's constitution raises eyebrows See in context

To add - Joe is authentic. He doesn't scare the Japanese the way Trump does. Us Americans will enjoy him for years to come. I'm not worried about a political party that is losing its national presence daily. Donkeys are stubborn not stupid.

Japan doesn't care what the outgoing VP says.

Posted in: Biden's remark on Japan's constitution raises eyebrows See in context

It's moot. Japan is peaceful. Abe isn't going to create a nuclear Military.

It will be a coalition of Asian nations that resolve Red China's escapades on Mischief Reef in the Spratleys. It's doubtful the owners of the oil leases there can be pressured into selling. Diplomacy trumps guns.

Biden takes the view that Japan is considered the United States' unsinkable aircraft carrier as do most of his generation. It isn't a POV that indicates disrespect but of interdependency.

Mine is too basic as well, I will update and improve mine. I'll also set up one for my mother in law in Kumamoto. I hope she and her neighbors can stop sleeping in their cars soon.

There no practical way for my wife to get back home to help. It's very frustrating.

My in-laws are there, and we in California are worried. I've heard but not verified Aso Bridge may be down.

Hope the area returns to normal and the death toll doesn't rise.

Posted in: Republicans wavering on Trump with denial, grudging acceptance See in context

Trump's tweets and retweets are often vile racist hatespeech. Google for Bernie Sanders in an concentration death camp gas chamber that he retweeted. Salon did a history of it, as did Atlantic Monthly. It's unsettling. The upside is he has destroyed the national power of the GOP.

Posted in: Has Obama really changed America? See in context

I think the Equality, Health Care Insurance, and smarter use of military force have changed the USA for the better. Standing with science re: Climate Change is a good thing. And the return to strong diplomacy is welcome.

America is a better place thanks to our President.
