Posted in: Abe nominated Trump for Nobel Peace Prize on U.S. request: Asahi See in context

he maybe the only US president yet to start new war for profit 

but he is starting a new arms race with Russia since he's the first POTUS to cancel the nuclear disarmament treaty, which raises the risk of nuclear proliferation and nuclear war. Not something a Nobel Laureate should have in their resume

Posted in: With legal team shake-up, Ghosn seeks punchier defense See in context

There is no chance Ghosn returns to Nissan and Renault.

and why would Ghosn do that when hes already resigned as chairman, what he is now doing is exposing the corrupt legal system in Japan for the whole world too see, everybody knows Japanese kryptonite is criticism , now he has a legal team thats prepared to expose the flaws and illogical rulings, things are really going to get interesting. The more embarrassment to Japan for the world too see the more pressure on the J prosecutors to actually do their jobs and compile evidence, theyre highly unlikely to get a guilty plea from Ghosn. Hes not your average sheeple thatll tow the line

I hope he wins it. What a great POTUS he has turned out to be. MAGA!

yeah a leader that pulled the US out of the nuclear disarmament treaty with Russia , basically starting another arms race which could potentially end modern civilization as we know it. yeah that person would make a great Nobel Peace Laureate LOL

The more faded ones may only fetch 50% or 25% of face value.

well if theyre legal currency why would somebody sell an old 10,000yen note for 5000yen or 2500yen thats just palin stupidity, better to send it back to the bank of Japan and have them exchange for new notes with the same face value. currency that cant be verified as legitamate is only worth the paper its printed on , which isnt much.

Posted in: Trump to sign border bill, but also declare emergency seeking wall funds See in context

Democrats caved and gave 55 miles of wall. Remember when Pelosi swore she would give nothing? Big victory for the President.

wrong 55miles of fencing, 55miles of 2000miles is less than 3%, hardly a cave , see if Trump can get his other 97% in the time he has left as POTUS. good luck lol

Posted in: Ghosn hires new defense team in change of strategy See in context

Does anyone here honestly think he will get a fair trial based on his treatment so far?

probably not, its guilty until proven guilty in Japanese law, the loss of face by the J prosecutors and all those that have already declared him guilty would be too much to handle, far easier to pin something anything on Ghosnso so they can save some pride. thank god Im not shackled by the draconian mindset so many here seem to suffer from, it really is holding Japan back in more ways than people realise

Wait - didn't Pelosi say she would approve only one dollar for the wall? She caved!

yeah she probably caved for that $1, she probably even paid for it out of her own pocket so the taxpayer wouldnt have to front the bill. $1 cave is far more acceptable than a $25billion wall. I love how deluded the Trump spinsters become when the see defeat as imminent. LOL

Some would call that a **defeat.**

no a majority woud claim it since the majority of Americans polled blamed him for the shutdown

Posted in: Trump dislikes border security deal but Republicans urge support See in context

At a minimum we get 55 miles of wall from “only $1” Pelosi. Take it then call the emergency or reapportion funds for more. Then ask for more in 7 months in the next budget.

55mile of a 2000mile wall, at about 3% , Trumpsters dont realise that Trump doesnt have enough time in his presidency to get the funding required let alone finish his wall. Even if he magically got the funds the next POTUS can easily cancel any future building as a total waste of taxpyer money. I woudnt even place a bet that Trump will finish his wall ever.

Posted in: Lawmakers optimistic as border talks back on track See in context

At this point, the negotiations are to find a way that both parties can leave saving face.

nah unless Trump gets his full 5.6billion and the total 25billion for his ocean to ocean wall there will b no saving face for him, he made his bed with his recalcitrant idiocy, he can sleep in it.

Posted in: Lawmakers optimistic as border talks back on track See in context

and if he gets WALL funding, we can simply go back in 6 months and ask for more.

lets see 1.4 billion for a 25 billion wall. Trump wont have enough time as POTUS to get the funding let alone build his 30ft high ocean to ocean wall. Heres an idea how about a smart wall, with surveillance some wall , some fence, what the Dems proposed before the shut down.

His poll numbers are actually up.

hardly about .5% and well below what he started with as POTUS, average of all major polls not just the alt right ones most notiable his disapproval rating is 11 points higher than when he started.

Posted in: Do you think democracy is the best form of government? See in context

Take away California and Trump got more total votes in the other 49 states.

yet states like NY & CA which represent over 20% of the US economy seems to not be represented by the government favouring the smaller states in both population and wealth. Theres a reason a large percentage of the US population choose to live in those states.

Free Ghosn? The guy is guilty.

actually he's innocent until a judge or jury rules him guilty, J prosecutors the J public and media don't have the power to do that, speculation and innuendo isn't proof of guilt. Unless you live in the land "guilty until proven innocent"

I just find it hard that with the hundreds of years experience all these 2020 Dems have in government no one can come up with a plan that makes sense?

pretty much same can be said for the Republicans and their support for a moronic POTUS

Posted in: Renault denounces Nissan over Ghosn investigation: report See in context

They can't afford a law suit. Nissan will dissolve the alliance- probably already have a caveat.

oh please Japan gov is $10 trillion in debt still doesn't stop them spending money, what can't be afforded is Nissan buyback,at a premium, are the 43% shares owned by Renault, even if they could afford it its unlikely Renault would sell. Id say itll be far more easier for Renault to do an aggressive takeover and buy the remaining 17% shares in Nissan, then itll be checkmate fother mucker. Although I personally dont think Renault would do that option, so as it stands Nissan just has to libe with the fact that anther gaijin will be leading the alliance now Ghosn has gone.

We didn’t go through all this last 2 years and pay Mueller’s team 35 million dollars to convict Roger Stone of lying.....to the Mueller investigation.

No Mueller was put there to catch and arrest criminals, hes done a good job so far and has actually made the US taxpayer money. Hes not fininished yet.

OK, by law, you are not independent of your family. I stand by my statement.

your confusing being single to be independant, my wife like me is an independant individual in both soul and thought, she has her own job and can support herself , without me if she had too. Yes my children are dependant on me since they cant work yet to support themselves. The problem with many in Japan is they think their company / their boss is their parent and they are its children and are totally dependant on them.

While in other democratic countries if your a talented individual your company/boss should respect their employees as individuals, if they wont then the can easly change to another company that will.

There are more children in the world that are not fed, not clothed, not sheltered, and not educated, than Japan, and they should be the focus of the not wrong committee.

ah well the job of the UN is too look at all countries not just the poor ones, just because Japan is a wealthy nation doesn't make it void of faults and criticism.
