It's absolutely comical how Fox News and Megyn Kelly are so butthurt and are lashing out with their whinings, I guess they can't take it when they're thoroughly put in their place and exposed as farces. I get the same impression from the rest of the Republican sheep flock who's bleatings all sound and taste the same. One good thing that could be said about The Trump is that he's completely exposed how pathetic and alien the rest of the GOP pack are as well as Fox News

Very suspicious. The boss of a part-timer at an Izakaya went to her house and called the police after a single day of missed work?? I think he's the culprit

What a disappointment seriously.. I was looking forward so badly to watching as many games as possible in the new stadium as it's so close to where I live, plus looked awesome.. I don't think I could even be bothered to travel all the way to Yokohama or wherever else they are rescheduling..

I think it's blown a bit our of proportion, China's normalization will be painful across the world to primary exporters and companies, though all will adapt. I think the more worrying conclusion from a new normal GDP growth of 3-5% for China would be that it would likely be condemned to the middle income trap.

I voted war. Climate change is a huge threat but one we won't see materalise for a long time. I think the threat of terrorism is being blown a bit out of proportion relative to the damage it causes.

A bar owner or passenger couldn't possibly be expected to be responsible for a drunk driver.
Posted in: Should bar owners who serve alcohol to customers, knowing they are driving, be liable for prosecution if the customer is involved in a traffic accident? Also, should passengers in cars driven by drunk drivers be liable for prosecution if the driver causes an accident?

I've said this from the beginning but Abe's wife has always been, and always will be, Abe's soft voice echoing the exact same positions he is presenting. Her innocent political naivety to reinforce Abe's learned politics, her superficial support for liberal causes, as well as her comically silly rhetoric that matches up perfectly with Abe's policies show that she is just a political tactic from the beginning.
In some ways, his wife is even more disgraceful than Abe himself as she herself knows she is being used for nothing more than for political puppetry. If she isn't aware, she's a bigger fool than we thought.

That's such an awesome idea. It would alleviate stress so damn much, as well as likely spur consumer activities as people will be out shopping, traveling, playing, etc. on the weekend Friday. This surely must be better than the current terrible 5/2

It's hard to say what can be done today besides see how slavery has maybe affected the worst off in today's US. It would have been much more appropriate to mete out compensation to all freed slaves after the Civil War. Prosecuting the slaveowners would be iffy seeing as it was technically legal.
An eye for an eye punishment would have instead been the complete enslavement of all former slaveowners and others complicit, the enslavement of their entire families, and children to be born into enslavement for the next 10 generations and arbitrary whippings, rape, executions and torture. After a couple hundred years of this, they would be allowed to be freed only to be targets for lynching for the next 70 years amid forced segregation and discriminatory laws, all the while being almost completely shut out of the jobs market. After a while the worst of it will be over, only now they would be targets for police brutality while employment, housing, education, etc. opportunities would still be closed off to them in a lot of cases.

Mutilation like this should carry a life sentence I reckon. I'd say a good portion of guys would probably just kill themselves if they ever got cut.. A life sentence as well as a cut for the offender if it's a dude

How do you know this? Have you seen such an explosion before?

No, but it didn't look too different in size and intensity to some of those very early atom bombs which measured in the thousands of tons, so was thinking that 21 tons seemed a bit on the low side
Who knows, maybe it was a much bigger load but the Chinese government wants to cover up the true extent of the disaster, like they did with the Shanghai stampede. In fact, death toll has already risen to at least 44..

It is for gay people, which is why I think only gay people should be deciding whether they get equality in marriage or not. Important decisions for a minority cannot be trusted to the majority

The video of the second explosion looked insane! It definitely looked more than 21 tons equivalent of TNT..

Well said. Yeah I guess Japanese actors (born and raised in Japan as opposed to non-Japan Japanese) have it pretty tough with the language, etc.
