    Fewer like Hillary than like Trump

    Hillary is leading by a huge margin.

    Just wait until th FBI report comes to light.

    The only FBI report says there was no crime. There is no other report.

    If it were anyone else formal charges would have been served months ago.

    You can't have formal charges when there is no formal crime.

    You are living in a Fox News fantasy world. It's not real, and you are scheduled to be really disappointed. People say, that once a belief takes hold, it's really difficult to dislodge it, even in the face of evidence to the contrary. I expect Hillary will have an eight year term, just to annoy you and people like you. She won't be a great president, but the bar is so low now that Hillary can win again, against Elmer Fudd or whoever the Republican committee chooses next time. She can read an' write an' stuff.

    Clinton will beat either Cruz or Trump, and Bernie would probably do so as well. Neither Clinton nor Bernie is that strong, either, so the problem is that normal, intelligent Republicans are not being encouraged to run. They do exist, but we haven't seen them in quite a while.

    Fowle left a Bible in a local club hoping a North Korean would find it, which is considered a criminal offense in North Korea.

    If you go to North Korea, be sure to convert people by leaving religious texts here and there. Alternately, you can steal stuff from hotels. They have a special program that allows you to stay longer.

    Perhaps the installation of flatulence collection stations would relieve this problem. People could go into booths that look like the enclosures for smoking, and let loose. Cartoon characters of hippos could be drawn on the outside to provide easy identification. Maybe the collected gases could power street lights or something.

    “Lucifer in the flesh,” Boehner said of Cruz

    Cruz would make a better demon than Trump, I think. Trump is at best a minor demon.

    Yes, first the country was taken away through dubious means (read about it), and made a state. Then, little by little, the property taxes went up beyond the reach of the local economy's low wages, so many Hawaiians lost their property, and are now living in shacks on the Big Island. Now their country is filled with fat tourists in "Hawaiian" shirts eating "Hawaiian" food. What's not to like?

    All they need is some official to say there is no fault around the plant, and that will trump any statements by seismologists. We've seen that story before. All the plants will start, and none of them will be on faults. It's a miracle! Hallelujah!

    The focus is delivering food. Any effort to tie this to promoting an aircraft cheapens the effort the troops are making. I really think the troops themselves are thinking only about helping out, not about sales promotions.

    It is not illegal to belong to the Yakuza. They have plenty of legal businesses, especially in real estate and construction, as well as having a hand in murkier areas. Still, any time there is an emergency, these folks help out, and that probably does build their influence, because Japanese understand about reciprocity, and because the government is usually much slower to respond.

    Hey, they have always helped out in emergencies. They are Japanese too, and participating members of the community.

    This picture is useful, and tells me I need to adjust my monitor. I can't see the yellow ring.

    Can you mourn someone you never met?

    I don't know. Can you criticize the emotions of someone you've never met?

    Stealth fail; I can see it quite clearly

    Not after they press the "cloak" button.

    That quake they had in Fukushima a few hours ago is a little unsettling, coming so soon after this one, and the shaking from this one still hasn't stopped yet.

    because let's be honest, it's not even a sport

    I'm not sure what definition of sport you are using, but here is one that is often used:

    sport spôrt/ noun noun: sport; plural noun: sports

    1. an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.

    Isn't this the same helicopter the Japanese people protested against? I am sure they are happy to see it coming now!

    Yes, people are happy to see supplies delivered, no matter what vehicle delivers them. All help is appreciated, I'm sure.

    The Osprey protests in Okinawa are about its poor safety record compared to other aircraft and the proximity of the aircraft to heavily populated areas, this all set in a general feeling of anger at not being part of the decision-making process concerning the base.

    Isn't that too many for a poxy bit of formation gymnastics?

    Well, of course, even one death is too many, but kids do have accidents playing sports of all kinds. The question is whether the injuries from this kind of sport are comparatively high when compared with other sports, whether or not the sport is one you like. I do think the height of the formations is a contributing factor, and that it should be adjusted down. Of course, PE is no longer required in the USA. From the number of overweight, out-of-shape kids, that is not without health risk either.
