I simply interpreted this as a J-Jantasy Film and left it at that. As I have two versions of the Tale of the 47 Ronin, it was the only way I could stomach it

we had a bit of a problem with that here with a korean girl living in my apartment flat was being stalked by a creep. I spoke to the other guys in my place. A little weed of a man we found about a block away from the complex after she came rushing in one night. All four of us showed up and corralled him and had the girl call the cops. Good thing too. Turns out the guy had a history of mental problems. But considering each of us out massed him considerably, it wouldn't have been much of a problem.

A pox on the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party in Washington. Functionally, there is not Democrat or Republican party is Washington. There is the Statist Political Class and Beauracracy vs. Everyone Else.

The U.S. is not a Democracy.
The Founders had nothing but contempt for a pure Democracy.
It is far more accurate to say the the U.S. is a Constitutional Republic with democratic tendencies in it's elections.
Tho given Washington's habit of ignoring the Constitution these days, Fascist Oligarchy (not capitalist) might be a more accurate description now.

Let's see. it's been 68 years since the End of WWII, of which many Koreans did join with with the IJA to be general creeps to the Chinese. 60 years and change since the End of the Korean War. This grudge match has gotten old, Korea.

While I can agree that insurance reform is needed here in the U.S., they wa that the ACA was passed (middle of the night, Party Line Vote, no one read it before passing it), and the sheer incompetence of the Launch combined with many of the reports that I have been seeing of insane raises in costs, tells me to scrap it and start over with a very open and public debate on the types of reforms needed to help lower costs all around.
and Open Minded: "You can Modernize USA." is vaguely insulting. Simply because we do not chose to follow state owned medicine, which beings to look more and more like a bad idea the more the implementation starts on the wrong foot, does not mean we are not 'modern'. Tho frankly, I find very little to recommend Post-Modern Societies. they seem rather warped

Okay guys, this is has gotten old, so lets get this out of the way.
There was a War. You Lost. Territory was taken by the Victor and even Mao ZeDong did not raise a fuss over it. You are just trolling the locals to distract from your own internal problems. It's old hat at this point. Get your coat, get out tha Door. And sit in your house and think about why people don't like you overly much
