If you choose to have a vicious breed of dog, you should be held accountable for their actions.

Posted in: Trump arrives in Tokyo; meets Japanese business leaders See in context

It's Memorial Day Weekend in America and Trump goes to Japan.

Our "very stable genius" will like the fact that this event is to crown a new king, he'll probably come back wanting his own coronation.

Posted in: Brexit crisis: Minister quits, piling pressure on May See in context

Leadsom said a second Brexit referendum would be “dangerously divisive.”

Hasn't "dangerously divisive" already happened? Maybe that's not a perception among Britain's Tories.

Party politics has screwed this process up, mostly the party politics of the Conservative Party. A real Conservative Party leader who was also a "remainer" during the referendum campaign, one with an ethical character that is, would not have tried to negotiate the Brexit deal. She would have made way for a Brexit Tory prime minister to take over.

. . . . and thereupon hangs much of this sorry tale.

Other countries tailor their products to their market. American meat exporters could try selling to Japan the types of beef the Japanese like to eat; and untainted with chemicals and hormones.

Posted in: Biden says 'I am a union man,' at first 2020 campaign event See in context

Personally Biden isn't my favorite Democratic candidate. But you know what? He'd make a d### good president, just like a dozen other Democrats currently running. If he ends up with the nomination I'll be more than happy to campaign and pull the lever for him.

Posted in: Trump to allow lawsuits against foreign firms in Cuba See in context

Wait until the international lawsuits start arriving on all the misappropriated Cuban assets prior to 1959. Let's start with every share holder of the United Fruit Company , and go from there. Trump is a reckless idiot.

Posted in: Half of foreigners in Tokyo have experienced discrimination: survey See in context

I lived in Japan for 3 years. It's pretty **** racist. They openly post signs that say "No foreigners" which is a violation of national and international law. I am white male and worth my weight in gold there, but when I traveled with my two friends who are Taiwanese-American, man, the crap they got. We rented rooms in this place and the owner worshiped me and treated them like animals. We should have left, but we paid for the whole summer.

A lot of grief came from the old people. The younger people were a little better, but still plenty of racism.

This is the ugly side of the Japanese. They still carry this aura of being a superior race and look down on the rest of the ASEAN nationals as second or third class citizens . No different than how they treated the Filipinos and other Asians during WW2.

Posted in: May gambles on talks with Labour to unlock Brexit, enraging her own party See in context

If the politicians have failed, put it to the people, offering only actual choices.

A. State your most preferred choice:

1. LEAVE the EU, even without a deal.

2. LEAVE the EU, under the deal agreed by the EU and UK.

3. REMAIN in the EU. 

B. State your second preferred choice, if any.  

Let everyone vote. Drop the lowest-vote-getting option, and reallocate that options' second choices. Majority wins.

Posted in: White House warns Russia over troops in Venezuela; threatens sanctions See in context

The Russians are entrenching a large military presence on the doorstep of the United States and your President is not going to do a thing about it. Within the next 5 years Russia will control the northern half of South America and most of Central America.  

Welcome to the new reality, America. You empire is crumbling.

Posted in: May seeks Brexit delay after third vote on her deal is derailed See in context

Give it up Brits. You foolishly tried to turn an incredibly complex question into a Yes/No vote. Now that you got the Yes answer you have to turn that simple answer back into concrete and complex legislation to implement that vote. Can't be done and get a majority to vote for it it appears.

You would be better off just admitting defeat and staying in the EU.
