Hollande truly blew in when he joined the US war in Syria. He is also backing austerity, which has created the largest revolt since the Revolution. The alternative is Front National. The Trumps of France.

This is pure evil at work. This atrocity will only create more evil. There is only one beneficiary from this hideous deed. The right wing Front National. They have a cultivated facade but thet are every bit as racist as Trump. Noce work You stupid dead killer. Your dead has nurtured Front National.

That is either good or bad news. The good news is that renegotiation is unavoidable.
Posted in: In the TPP, each agreement is bound up in complex relationships with other agreements, so the entire treaty would fall apart if even just one item was brought up for renegotiation.

I think the FFA is nuts.
Posted in: The Federal Aviation Administration has ruled out requiring psychological testing for airline pilots, despite an air crash last year in which a German pilot deliberately flew an airliner full of passengers into a mountainside. It says psychological tests are ineffective because they reveal a pilot's mental health for only a moment in time without providing insight into whether the pilot will suffer problems later. What do you think?

Here is the realty. Coal is a dead industry in Japan and has been so door decades. There is no such thing as clean coal energy as there is no such thing as clean tobacco smoking. Coal, like nuclear power generation, belong to the past. Solar energy is fast coming into its own and it belongs to the future we need.
Posted in: It is not realistic to quit coal entirely. Environmental aspects alone can’t dictate the way countries set their energy policies.

Forbid the sale of quasi assault weapons. Declare the NRA as terrorist organization and shut it dowm. Ban all gun lobbyists. In short, treat the gun industry like the tobacco industry. Only much more vindictively.z

Except the LDP. That says volumes about the courrupt nature of the LDP.

The slaughter of innocent LGBT people wa a horror that exposed the sickness of moral rot that pervades America. The vile religious fanatics, the Republican bigoted politicians and the evil gun lobbies that help arm mass murderers. I stand by the LGBT community in their right to be left in peace.
This horrific crime would be most unlikely to happen in Japan for two reasons. First, the absence of gun among the general populace. Second, the absence of a homophobic tradition.
Religeous bigotry and political opportunism is at the heart of homophobia. Let us make sure it does not happen here.

Whether judges are elected or appointed is not the issue. The fact is this Judge handed down an inappropriate sentence based on favoritism. That favoritism scandal seems based on his Anglo face than the horrific evidence. This judge has got to go.

Zoos are your babysitters. It should be expected that a large proportion of visitors to zoos are children. It should not be difficult to construct child proof barriers so that they do not fall in with the animals. Obviously this zoo remiss.

My parents, whatever their faults were, never even pretended to abandon me. Abandonment is frightening for a child. They are no helicopter parents but they were the sort of parents who always let me know they were close by. My parents would never have kicked me of a car in the wilderness no matter how badly I misbehaved.
With all the terrors of childhood aside, I was at least secure in the belief I would not be abandoned.
Posted in: For those of you with children younger than, say, 7, how do you discipline them when they misbehave? How did your parents used to discipline you?

Shinto was a folk religion since time immemorial until it was coopted as the state religion in the Meiji era. It has more incommon with Greek, African N Native American folk religions that were never intended for worship of a monarch.
Posted in: There’s no doubt that Shinto was used by the government during the war. But is there a religion that has not been used as a reason for fighting? Shrines in themselves are not aggressive.
