    If you're not concerned about Trump's coziness with the Russian dictator, you may want to ask yourself why you even bother with democracy anymore. For all your talk about Obama being a 'tyrant', it's pretty amazing that you're opting for Trump. “On January 21st of 2017, the day after I take the oath of office, Americans will finally wake up in a country where the laws of the United States are enforced.” There's a subtext to that sentence that's pretty scary.

    Well, if you remember back in the day on "The Simpsons" cartoon there was that awesome episode with Sideshow Bob running for public office and his best quote came up.

    "We all know you secretly long for a cold hearted Republican to lower taxes, brutalize criminals, AND RULE YOU LIKE A KING!"

    After the Bush Jr. Admin. Being ruled over like kings by the elitist majority of Republicans at the time didn't turn out so well for those not in the 1% now did it.

    why do you care if japan has to spend money to develop its own military? Why should my hard-earned tax go towards military expenditures when we have so many domestic issues to solve

    .

    Depends on how much you've been paying attention to PRC's intent. They want to get "vengeance" for Imperial Japan's WW2 actions, as well as grab as much space as possible to hog resources in the region whether it belongs to them or not. Japan is currently in economic turmoil and really needs to get its stuff together in order to even afford better military R&D. So let's say Japan isn't assisted in it's defense when it's currently needed, Before China declared its expanded ADIZ the region was still very peaceful except for Norks being jerks and such.

    Look to the Korean War for example. Taiwan, the Philippines, and Vietnam. All it takes is on step. I like China, but their government is full of elitists who are very greedy and controlling. I know we can easily say the same for the US, but at least our system was based on a Bill of Rights for it's citizens.

    Ditto that! Talking to German friends, it seems there are 2 distinct Germanys: Those people who have woken up and want to protect their civilization, and those "progressives" who have swallowed the globalist propaganda hook, line, and sinker. Alas, the latter have a solid foothold in the media and government.

    I like to call those types of folks Excessive Progressives. They don't know when to STOP and acknowledge problems with too much "tolerance" becomes just plain ignorant naivete. Germany's society was built post WW2 by their values and experiences of those before them. And Merkel tried very hard to supplant that with Excessive Progressive stupidity.

    the Democratic Party now stands revealed for what it is.

    Both parties have been revealed for what they are. I'm advocating for a new party myself. Imagine a party that is neither conservative nor liberal, but moderate. A party that knows when to follow a conservative perspective and when to follow a more liberal perspective as each situation applies. Not just all the way left or all the way right, but the choices that fit by necessity.

    Since a lot more voters are becoming "Independent" it's because they don't really fall towards either party. There was an era when I used to be a RINO. But when I hit my 20s I dropped the Repubs like a hot potato and went "Independent".

    So Mr. "Spoiled" just called her Mrs."Rotten". Last I checked, neither are good qualities in fruit.

    Merkel's hubris must be ridiculous. "Eating crow" doesn't even begin to describe the half of it.

    It's very sad. I wanted to send my mother on a small vacation to Germany because she was born in Germany to US military parents and spent enough time there to learn the language from birth. But now I'm not even thinking twice about it with all the issues cropping up with undocumented refugees pouring in and setting up shop while importing a severely negative ideology.

    Americans deserve better. The 2nd Amendment must go.

    No the 2nd amendment is allowed to stay. It's the twisted interpretation that has to be addressed.

    The 2nd amendment reads as follows:

    "The right to bear arms IN DEFENSE OF THE COUNTRY.

    The gun nutters ONLY see this:

    "The right to bear arms."

    So pretty much the 2nd amendment from the olden days to allow citizens of the US to carry firearms in the event of an attack on the US. And we can see just how far it's original interpretation has been reduced to "Durrrr, I want's to carry me a gun cos I like shootin' stuff!"

    I agree this is about an angst-ridden teen. The biggest question though is *HOW DID HE GET THE GUN!?!?

    I think a true Brexit should only happen if the EU doesn't adapt it's laws for the better which includes respecting each separate country's sovereign rights. The recent refugee blunder shows just how much too much power was given to prevent countries from protecting themselves and their citizens.

    Another thing is Trump and Hillary are both in their 70s... add another 4-8 years and they'll be in their 80s. I would have been more up for this upcoming election if the candidates were no older than their 60s.

    Age does not mean wisdom, it can sometimes mean they're stuck in their ways from the era which they were at their best. Which means they'll try to regress our society into their ideal era, instead of keeping up with the times.

    I tried it... for about 15 minutes, then deleted the app from my phone. Being an fairly avid pokemon player, the battle system is dumbed down to idiot levels. I'm sticking with my 3DS (which is also portable) pokemon games. Besides, Sun and Moon are coming out soon and I'm more than happy with the gameplay on the handheld since they started doing X and Y. So much more entertaining.

    Lots of folks use words. Trumps only producing words. For all you Trump supporters, I ask you this. What makes you think that he's going to turn his words into actions that fulfill the promise of his words? Especially looking at his personal actions throughout history and personality? One can always talk a good game, but can they actually play it? Now whose dreaming?

    The saying still goes, "Believe NONE of what you HEAR, and HALF of what you SEE." If one is gullible enough to believe a person by their words it's no wonder our country is in the state it's in.

    It's a symbol from the old Twilight zone episode, "To Serve Man"!

    I think the new symbol just makes it slightly more idiot proof.

    From what I understand the people who were attacked were visiting Germany from Hong Kong. Not German citizens, but still this puts a dent in tourism.

    The hate my friend, the hate. What can reduce the hate?

    Control chips in the brain! That's the solution! Psychic machines capable of reading criminal minds and hostile intent!

    I'd say its a fad. Pokémon Go's augmented reality is nice, but the tried and true battle system that is staple to the Pokémon games has gone completely absent in this title. Until they implement a battle system that makes "catching 'em all" worth it, there is no point.

    Ok that looks freakin' tasty. I want :D But I'll have to visit Japan for them... unless the local Japanese grocery decides to just stock it for a bit. It will probably go up from 850 yen to $14.00 usd or more.

    Oh look, an "honor" killing. Hope they find him... as for whether or not there will be justice for this murder is another story. I remember an elder Egyptian secularist stating that Islam is fighting itself to either remain in the middle ages, or to move into the modern era. Once again another situation like this proves it. The Imam had his position taken away by a theocratic government... Middle aged thinking.

    Stick with the "no first use" clause. Agreed with those above. Using a nuke first is the dumbest move any nuclear armed country could make.

    @Ossan I agree that if an allied country is attacked with a nuclear weapon then it is ok to retaliate with a nuclear weapon.
