Posted in: There has been no change even after the law to promote efforts to prevent school bullying was established in 2013 after my son's suicide. See in context

About 100 years ago when I was Junior High School student, I was getting bullied. I told my Dad and he took me along to a boxing club which did me no end of good for my confidence and fighting ability. Result= no more bullying. I advocate some form of martial art for all bullied students. Will stop it.

It's sad that they have only been together for one third of their marriage. A major part of marriage, at least it is for me, is getting it on several times a week. It's only natural. Will she be coming to Tokyo now I wonder?

Posted in: China sends 19 fighter jets towards Taiwan in show of force See in context

CCP warplanes over the independant country of Taiwan? Taiwan has every right, and should, just shoot them down. This is an act of war. Sooner or later, there's going to be a fullscale war between the CCP and Taiwan/ US (if joe can get out of bed), Australia, UK and who knows else. Let's get on with it, give the CCP a bloody nose and hasten their demise.

CNN= Comedy News Network.

CNN is nothing but an anti Trump station which is now lost as Trump is no longer President.
