    She has that right ... when she's not at work and under the subordination of her seniors. Your next line is essentially one of subjective prejudice, which simply is not a good enough reason to disobey an order.

    Article 20 of the Constitution: No person shall be compelled to take part in any religious act, celebration, rite or practice.

    I'm relying on Cleo's interpretation of Article 20 of the Constitution, but if accurate then ANY person has that right at home, at work, when visiting relatives, when shopping... 24 hours a day - 7 days a week while in Japan. Being a subordinate to someone higher up does not waive Constitutional rights. The Japanese National Anthem sings about wishing the Emperor to reign for thousands of generations... something only a God could do. This could easily be interpreted as a religious song.

    And they call Trump supporters "racists."

    That's because if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and smells like duck s@#t, then all those who adore it are duck-s@#t lovers, too. Guilt by association.

    The difference here is (unlike Trump supporters defending their racist Fuhrer) NOBODY is defending the assailants in this news story. Yes, I still call Trump supporters "racists".

    I voted "no", but only because they didn't provide a third option: "It wouldn't matter". As a prefecture to Japan, Okinawa will never get to decide on matters relating to Japan's national security. They can voice their objection, but any vote by just Okinawans "deciding" anything regarding the nation is moot. They would need to gain a majority of citizens in the entire country to side with them in order to actually "decide" something. This is true whether you're talking about American military or anything else. One prefecture doesn't get to decide issues affecting the entire country.

    @sandiegoluv:

    WOW, this article was made really about nothing at

    AGAIN?

    all. He was not rude. He

    AGAIN? (mocking bow)

    was just doing his own thing for

    AGAIN?! (another mocking bow)

    about five seconds and after that she spoke and said what she wanted to say.

    In what alternate universe is an award presenter expected to do ANYTHING to draw attention to themselves while an award recipient is giving an acceptance speech? The was a textbook case of RUDE. This ranks right up there with Kanye walking up on stage and telling Swift that Beyonce should have won.

    Drunk driving is a scourge no matter WHO commits it and the way Japan's driving laws are written, you can't even have one drink without being over the limit for operating a vehicle. This girl is guilty and she should be prosecuted for her crime.

    Are the admirals and 4-star clowns going to refuse an Independence Day celebration for one stupid girl's DUI? I'm not in the US military, but -NO Fair! (if they do ban alcohol on the 4th)

    It's only narrow-minded individuals who think a celebration MUST involve alcohol. The 4th can be celebrated just fine without alcohol and CERTAINLY without drunk driving. I've been doing so for decades.

    Wow, would you rather he died? He was found, and many if not most of those who searched for him were sent there to assist and were not "professional" trackers. They literally beat the bushes searching for the boy and thankfully they found him alive and safe.

    Give credit where credit is due, and I hope that YOU never are in that boy's situation or any situation where you need someone to find you to save you.

    How does criticism of the search organization equate to wishing the boy had died? "Beating the bushes" looks good on the nightly news, but is next to useless if the command center doesn't know what they're doing.

    The boy wasn't found by searchers and instead was found by accident. According to the article the boy found the shelter on the first day he was abandoned. Search teams should have been dispatched AT THE LEAST to cover anywhere the boy might have walked in one day's time. That this shelter was not part of the search area indicates a serious flaw in the search procedures used. So I won't give credit to the searchers, NOR the military members who found him... the first due to incompetence and the second due to them benefiting from luck rather than skill or perseverance.

    I spent six years in the navy 30 years ago and for a while I was under a base-wide drinking ban. The only people this really affects are those who can't go through life without alcohol. The rest of us just bided our time until the restrictions expired.

    I was in San Diego in ('88?) when New Zealand submitted an outrageously huge challenger ship outside of the standard format for hulls that had been agreed upon. The US responded with the first catamaran-hulled defender. The New Zealanders cried "foul" even though the catamaran met the same competition rules as the New Zealander behemoth. The catamaran easily won and now they're ALL apparently catamarans (or more properly - the AC50 class yacht.)

    Let's face it, there simply are kids who understand nothing but good old beating up. But since this is a no-no in a modern society, what should the parents do?!!

    Denial of conveniences. The obvious first thing to do in this case was unplug the TV until the child relinquishes the remote. Send them to their room... AFTER making them leave their cellphone. If they leave the house without permission, call the cops. Repeated problems will result in termination of their cell account. I guarantee if you put a 14 year old's cell service at risk, they are going to start paying attention to what you say.

    China said on Friday that Japan’s World War II violence is more worthy of remembrance than the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, ahead of a historic visit by U.S. President Barack Obama.

    So's Tiananmen Square, but I don't see China chomping at the bit to commemorate that massacre. Everyone chooses to commemorate events that had something to do with them. In China's case, they choose to ignore something that had to do SOLELY with them.

    Lots of Blacks and Latinos committing crimes. "illegals" too . . . . & some posters say we don't need a wall-

    Lots of "Whites" and "Asians" as well. Don't try to make it out to be just a few ethnic groups. What wall do we need to build to protect ourselves from the WHITE criminals? No. Walls aren't going to solve the problem as they will always be able to be breached. Only Trump thinks walls are a solution because he lives in a fantasy world where everybody does what he says or gets fired.

    As long as the Second Amendment remains as-written, the Supreme Court will basically squash any attempts to bring some rationality into the matter. The obvious answer is that the Second Amendment needs a re-write so that the concept of home protection is maintained while imposing more limits on the high-capacity magazine weapons we find in use during mass shootings. For example: A short-barreled shotgun is excellent home defense from an intruder without the need for a 30-round banana clip.

    “Amber has suffered through years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of Johnny,” they added.

    They married in February last year.

    So... "years" of abuse, yet they've been married for less than a year and a half. Amber appears to have some 'splainin' to do.

    People making fun of China crushing another language don't understand politics or culture. Simple as that.

    So China wants to use Mandarin for all its official dealings. How, exactly, is that "crushing" Cantonese? Is it banning the use of Cantonese in Hong Kong? No.

    Terrorizing children is the price of freedom right-wingers' interpretation of the Second Amendment imposes on America; meanwhile, they're in a frenzy about toilet usage. Priorities.

    It has nothing to do with left or right wing priorities. I personally think the Second Amendment needs a major re-write to bring it out of the 18th Century and into the 21st Century. BUT... as a school employee I see the need to conduct these drills. That said, I don't know what value scaring the kids with gunshot sounds and fake blood have - we don't do such things in our school district. We generally have a couple of lockdown drills in every district school every school year, and during the Summer the city police hold active shooter drills in the high school with full SWAT gear, drawn weapons, and K9 squads. This lets the police iron out the kinks in their procedures for "active shooter in the school" situations. Staff in the school during those Summer drills are warned that the K9 patrols are NOT to be approached, because the dog isn't going to be friendly.

    In Japan, Pearl Harbor is not seen as a parallel for the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and then Nagasaki three days later, but as an attack on a military installation that did not target civilians.

    On just this aspect, they are 100% correct. One was a military operation against the opposing military installations' naval and air power, and the other was two military operations against the opposing civilian population. The military at Pearl had the chance (and some took it) to fight back. The residents of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had no chance at all. By any other measure, the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were massacres. If the United States were to try the same thing these days, it would be a war crime against humanity.

    He didn't punch her. She is accusing him of "phoning" her.

    The article appears to be incomplete. In one place they say he repeatedly hit her during a recent fight - leaving her face bruised, and in another they only say the bruise was caused by the cellphone.

    Anyone who looks at his career will be pretty surprised at how his life looks compared to Shatner's, whose career was a lot less steady.

    "T.J Hooker", sci fi author, and at one time a large stockholder in Priceline.com (he's since sold his shares) vs. "In Search of..." and "Ancient Mysteries" host? Oh yeah, Leonard was doing Priceline commercials as well.

    "Who started the war?"

    USA

    OK, two can play your little game. The USA "started" the war by demanding that Japan cease its aggressive attempts to takeover the entire Southeast Asian region in order to support the war it was already up to its ears in with China. So I'm going to throw it right back in your face and state that JAPAN started the war against the allies by entering a war they couldn't sustain against China without having to "acquire" much more territory by attacking allied colonies.

    Imelda Marcos is still alive and sits in the Philippine House of Representatives.

    Really? For some reason I thought she passed away five or so years after Ferdinand. Did they make her repay the costs of all her shoes purchased with taxpayer money before letting her back in the country?
