Merkel set the bar high, Trump low.

Yep. She made him look bad. After all, the people actually wanted her - multiple times. So he called her a b!tch because it made him feel better.

Trump made himself look bad, he didn't need her help. And he called her a bitch to feel better about himself because he ain't man enough to deal with an intelligent woman and he's too stupid and ignorant to even realize that the word 'bitch' is never a slur or curse word in German. It's used to infer to a female dog only, never a person.

Of course he's always sassing off like a brat kid anyway.

Ok, so after his meeting with Putin, if Biden doesn’t want to answer any questions to the media, then at least he should provide to the public and in the press with a transcript of his meeting with his Chinese counterpart, then we will know.

Yet it was alright for Trump to meet closed doors with Vlad and whine 'I can do wot I waaaaannttt....'.

And yet, we didn't have to worry about the border, Afghanistan, the Mullah's, Putin and Xi. When Trump met with Xi a few years ago he had to excuse himself as he was being briefed and ordered the bombings of some Syrian forces and then went back to Xi and excused himself and told Xi what he did, the guy meets with his Chinese counterpart and bombs terrorist at the same time. Biden would never do that as predictable as he is.

those attacks on Syria were a farce. Drop your bombs on airfield after your russian masters get all that hardware out of the way, yeah! Yippy-yi-yay! Yippy-yi-yay!

Ah, that's your problem.

Having the Socialists and the Greens and other parties in power, working together. There's a word for such a government. It's called 'democracy'.

Russia conquered the Crimea from the Ukraine about a decade later.

Thanks, Obama 

And Obama slapped economic sanctions on Russia for that. He's not a sputnik who kowtows to Russia like his usurping successor.

Remember the Yugoslavia Breakup Wars? The last one was in Northern Macedonia in 2005 - 2004. Russia conquered the Crimea from the Ukraine about a decade later.

Yugoslavia was a civil war. In 1991, the Balkan nation of Yugoslavia was torn apart by civil war between opposing ethnic groups. ... The conflict began in June 1991 after the republics of Slovenia and Croatia seceded from Yugoslavia and declared independence.

Slobodan Milosevic stirred the pot of ethnic hatred and Yugoslavia self-destructed into a charnel house of genocide, mass rapes, concentration camps, the grossest abuses in Europe since WW2. There is no Yugoslavia now, thanks to that bigmouth fascist. Although Croatia's Tudjman regime committed some war crimes too.

The Invasion of Crimes wasn't a war.

You invade another country. There will almost certainly be some resistance so you kill them. You occupy the territory. You kill whoever resists your imposed authority. That's a war.

Father Christmas/Santa Claus/etc. is based on a real life Saint Nicholas who gave toys and goodies to poor families. After he died, he became 'larger than life' and many mythologies and images were made about him. This is a terrific article, it shows that despite our cultural differences, we're not really that different from each other.

Trump Called German Chancellor Angela Merkel 'That B----':

Trump unable to handle her

https://i.guim.co.uk/img/media/99223135c2bd66d3268e7b72edf97b1d0335dd98/0_0_1200_800/master/1200.jpg?width=940&quality=85&auto=format&fit=max&s=cd7d8cd43c700acb1f58218b11be15a1

BTW, that word exists in the German language but it's never a dirty word or an insult word. It means 'female dog' as in Lassie or Laika, it's never used on a person. Not only is Trump unable to handle an intelligent female, he doesn't enough sense to know that if he said that word to Angela it wouldn't register as anything. 'Bitch' is not a bad word in German, ever.

Of course not only is Trump not able to handle intelligent women, he isn't fit for anything diplomatically or socially in the first place. And every day on Twitter he always was sassing somebody off and calling them rude and ugly names anyway.

She stared him down at the G8 conference while he tossed Starburst fruit chews like the spoiled brat he is,

Merkel is mature and she has GUTS, she didn't take any crap from Trump the Chump.'

So much as happened in Germany, as well as all of Europe itseld during those 16 years and she handled it all OK.

Auf Widersehen, Merkel. Vielendank.

Open MindedToday  05:31 am JST

General Assembly President Abdulla Shahid told the assembly before the resolution’s adoption that sport “brings together people of every religion, race, ethnicity, and political background to celebrate humanity’s athletic prowess and potential.”

As a senior UN member, Mr Abdulla Shahid should mention as well to bring together different genders and LGBT+.

Otherwise his request for truce to celebrate humanity is just irrelevant.

There's always been gay athletes whether our governments 'like' it or not. However in some countries that's an excuse to persecute them, as in Russia and Uganda where that can get you killed.

I truly hope this book isn't a pulp volume of slanderous or dumb lies. A few years ago a 'friend' claiming to be Whitney's lesbian lover put out a book claiming to be that. It didn't fly or sell much because it was trash. Some things should be left alone but hack biographers put out trash on stars all the time.

Posted in: Race, politics at heart of Spielberg's new 'West Side Story' See in context

snowymountainhellToday  07:39 am JST

No big revelation about race & cultural differences here. West Side Story was a story of lovers from different ‘sides of town’, derived from the theme penned best in Romeo and Juliet.

- “ The gangs -- the Puerto Rican Sharks and white Jets -- are "really fighting about race," the 74-year-old director said.” -

Of course, Spielberg will ensure the ‘happy ending’ in his take on the story.

Given the open hispaniphobic attitude displayed in America during the past few years, it is political. However, it is also very much like 'Romeo and Juliet' and can be interpretted in various ways. That's the timeless magic here.

I agree with Disillusioned. Being drunk and can’t remember should be part of the offense. If you know that you loose control or can’t remember a thing while drunk, you must not drink in public, and if you ever to be allowed to drink, a guardian should be assigned to control your behavior or you should even be warring a sign post so that normal people can avoid taking risk while being with you. The funny thing is that He still remember could still remember to target a person who is weaker than him

And that should lead to a second charge of 'drunk and disorderly' as well as assault + battery.

deadbeatlesToday  11:32 am JST

So... it's okay for Amerika to blatantly do business, sell weapons, instigate and profit with well documented human rights violators without batting a moral eye. I hope he doesn't do it- but that really isn't the issue is it.

Playing at that hellhole would be like saying you accept it and go along with their murderous deeds. That and just plain greed. When Laura Branigan herself played at Sun City, apartheid South Africa in 1988 she made it clear she was just there to play and make money. She didn't give a damn about the apartheid issue and she said so. Linda Ronstadt and Andrew Gold were the same way in 1982.

Maria Carey didn't seem to give a damn about playing for Qaddafy's thug elite either. Money talks, BS walks.

Without a doubt, those soot sprites and the white Totoro ('bunny rabbit') are cute, and they have nice surprizes inside of them. However, those pictures painted on the console look like those unfunny CoVid-19 plush toys I've seen in educational stores and science toy sites. And those toys are crass and not funny at all.

Last time I visited Canada (2019) people there told me about what a wuss he is. They ain't too proud of him either.

How many told you that? Was it one or two or maybe 3. Did you conduct a survey of the population?

In Niagara Falls, CN I sight-seed and bought some legal cannibis. I was talking about the further travelling I was going to be doing soon, and Bieber is from Hamilton. We joked that I didn't have time to search for and 'jack-slap that ninny up'. Like in America, only the 13 y/o girls in Canada like Justin Bieber. On top of that I was wearing a T-shirt celebrating the final tour of the Great Canadian Rock'n'Roll Export and Pride and Joy band that we know as RUSH.

Because every Canadian knows him personally, right?

Justin is well known to be an immature jerk even in Canada. RUSH has a long inluential career and legacy of intelligent butt-kicking rock music. They are well known and honored in Canada. You just know it.

The UN isn't the clown. It's the entire circus

I also rememer that for over a decade 'Federal republic of Yugoslavia' (Serbia/Montenegro) was also banned for the Games (and kicked out of the UN) for all the genocidal wars and 'ethnic cleansing' crap courtesy of Slobodan Milosevic. While I was in college there was an obscene derogatory nickname for him that rhymned with his last name.

Should never accept these engagements in the first place rather than accept then cancel.

Remember Sun City in South Africa during the apartheid era? Queen, Julio Iglaesis, Laura Branigan, Elton John, Rod Stewart, others played in that human rights hellhole. Then during the 00's some singers like Maria Carey performed exclusively for Qaddafy's thug club in Libya. This is the same crap. And in all these cases the performers get big money to do this, to make the totalitarian regime look good.

And as the band RUSH has said, 'Big money goes around the world...Big Money has a mean streak, Big Money GOT NO SOUUUL!!!!!' (here's where the synthesizer and guitar attacks come in).

Japan should deal with these sex offenders from the core of it’s society.

Teaching children to equally respect women,stop publishing and selling weird mangas about young girls in sexual activities and stop sexualizing young women in the music and entertainment industry.

And those 'idol' groups too. I find them exhibitionist and expoitative. For pervs.

When it comes to women in the music business, show me ones who write/sing/play their songs. Just like the men. And no I don't like those stupid 'boy bands' either, lip-synching and dancing to drum machines that somebody else programmed.

Certainly true, esp. with Russia. but there also some cyberpunk gangs like Anonymous who are pranksters, pests and jokers who have no loyalty to any nation or any authority whatsoever. They're modern Qaddafys of cyberwar, pulling cyberpunk pranks, causing problems for others and thinking it's funny.

These vehicles accumulate significant amounts of dust, hence Mission Control has derived the operative name from: “*Lu**nar***”, “*Mobile” & “über **(Ger. for ‘across’, ‘over’ and/or ‘superior’), pronounced “Roomba”. -*

The measures work, if most of the population keep them outbreaks are controlled, as is likely happening in Japan. They hypothesis of measures against COVID being effective is not just a guess, but it is supported by the available evidence and allows for predictions to be made in the short term.

But in America not only has there been these liars in the media (and religions) spreading misinformation, but those shysters themselves have been getting CoVid and dying. Still, their lies have caused other deaths.

Trump's irresponsibility and the unrestful crap he stirred up last year has resulted in half a million deaths alone. Joe has and is addressing the problem but you have so many people eager to get back to theaters, sports games and concerts (never mind school and school activities) and we just ain't ready for it yet. All year long I've seen everything from crowded stadiums on TV hosting football games, people going shopping and dining out w/o any protection whatsoever, people going to church as if nothing is going on, etc. They're not taking this seriously enough, they've been visiting family en masse this past Thanksgiving and more holidays are coming up.

Yeah the measures work but too many people in America aren't taking it seriously enough and they're causing problems for everyone concerned.
