    Now, they just don't care don't mean they are indifferent. It means they don't give a $*^%t about black people. They think Blacks are, by definition, shiftless and lazy, violent, dangerous, cry-baby-demanding, ungrateful simians.

    Their comments would certainly indicate that you are correct.

    During "Jim Crow" and the turbulent 50's and 60's, Blacks were taught that they should'nt look a white person in the eye, stay away from white women, avoid all white police, sit on the back of the bus, the back of the line etc. All the while thousands of Blacks were lynched, beaten, smacked around, their homes and businesses burned including entire towns. You can google all you want, I don't need to provide all the links for you. Malcolm X was a "freedom fighter" with words. He never attacked or encouraged wanton attacks on white people. He called them devils for what they were doing. He advocated self defense and self reliance. He said if the devil hits you then hit him back. The white media couldn't stand for that and vilified him, making whites fear anyone like him while placating them with MLK, the peaceful "N$332r. I have nothing but the utmost respect for Malcolm X and his legacy.

    Law enforcement knew he was to be excecuted. He realized that Islam was quite different than what he was led to believe. He was far to dangerous as a world figure to "white supremacy" as well as "Black separatism". Read his auto biography for his own words instead of "media says". I respect Beyonce for her stance as most entertainers won't take one. Albeit she chose a time when her wealth and status are secure enough but who can blame her.

    The original Black Panthers were founded for community self reliance and to "police the police". I shouldn't have to explain why in 1960's Oakland. Do your own math. There were bad apples and those who went beyond. They attacked police as they felt justified. There were bad poice who attacked them. They also felt justified. We can go back and forth with our opinions and most here haven't experienced anything but watching from the outside. BLM movement has been hi-jacked by those who scream it at every oppurtunity

    For most of the pregnancy, there is no problem with continuing to have sex (if the woman is feeling up to it of course). However, many Japanese women are under the impression that there should be no sex after pregnancy, and will not sleep with their husbands even if they are feeling fine.

    My sentiments exactly Strangerland, tho there was an attempt to twist my wording in a rant last night.And then had to read lame aspersions being cast. A good friend of mine didn't have whilst his wife was preggers and there were no unusual circumstances beyond the obvious when a woman is pregnant.She didn't want to and he just had to sux it up.

    kabukilover: " Instead, Japan took the sneaky approach by taking their citizens back and then not returning them. Of course returning abducted Japanese citizens was absurd, Japanese was right not to return them, but that all but doomed the return of any other abductees."

    Agreed it was absurd, and they had to have known the abductees were unlikely to return, but it was less that than the swift 180 Koizumi took when the right-wingers heard about the admittance of the kidnappings. Koizumi was forced to renege on all compromises and in fact impose sanctions for the abductions, to which, of course, NK responded as expected. Had Koizumi held strong and not given in to the creaming wingers here, we might be in a very different situation.

    What's happening here is more of the same. There needs to be sanctions for what NK is going because they are going against UN agreements, but Japan COULD be an exception (this time not playing both sides, but stating they will not impost sanctions because of the abduction issue). So, it's really just a question of what the priority is, and now we know the answer.

    They're very unlikely to be killed by police if they're incarcerated.

    HAHA! I hope you're trolling me with that, because if your answer to preventing unarmed black men from getting killed by police is to incarcerate all black men, that's probably the stupidest thing every said on this site.

    It seems bad news flowing out of China is about to further undermine Japan's hopes for growth. A matter that might not be garnering enough attention or has been largely discounted is how the economic problems that continue to develop in China will spill over and affect Japan. The Japanese economy is very vulnerable to a negative feedback loop that could have strong ramifications on its economy.

    The tight relationship between the two is apparent each time trouble surfaces in China the yen jumps in value as wealth in a stealth move flees China often through business back-channels. This should not be misinterpreted as the yen strengthening, it is just a temporary bump before the wealth moves on to an even safer place. More about this subject in the article below.

    Nope. What it did was wash over the low lying land and work it's way round.

    If you looked at the topography of the region you will see that won't happen. And that's obviously ignoring the fact that a large chunk of land won't fall in to the ocean as earthquakes in that region or volcanic by nature.

    But look at the maps... look at where the water will go and explain how sendai nuclear power plant is threatened by sakurajima.

    Crisis after crisis has exposed the reckless and contemptuous manner the EU, anti democratic, administrative bureaucratic monstrosity contempt for sovereign nation states elected parliaments. The very definition of political participation affords the electorate an opportunity to hold their elected representatives and officials accountable. Essentially to air their concerns, grievances and preferences ultimately to exert pressure on them to respond.

    The EU commission, it's institutions, and parliament has systematically failed to provide any politically flexible coherent economic strategy to respond an ever changing and diverse global market place. The dangerous and profoundly cynical leadership, Jean-Claude Juncker - President of the European Commission, Donald Tusk - President of the European Council, Martin Schulz - President of the European Parliament, and Angela Merkel criminally incompetent response to the scale of the threat of terrorism, mass influx of illegal immigrants, brazenly covering up a mass of sex attacks by these migrant men, is truly shameful.

    All undermining the very democratic system our forefathers scarified their lives to defend. The EU contradictions, it's failure to live up to the very basic principles and ideals of its founders will be heaped upon my generation and generations to come.

    EU’s grotesque inability find a consensus or agreement on any single issue has exacerbated the problem. A single currency devoid of a single European economic government or any political/fiscal union, should have been aborted at birth.

    The EU final atrocity is the threat to turn Greece into a refugee concentration camp sealed with razor wire. Great Britain will indeed have a once in a lifetime opportunity afforded to no other European nation state. Please reflect, the most reprehensible cowardly act is to fall and stay down.

    Please point me at a Republican alternative.

    I already told you

    All you said was this:

    once Obsma is gone and IF Trump or a Republican gets the WH, you don't have to get rid of Obsmacare entirely, but you can make some massive changes to it and strip away many of the useless provisions that are weighing the people down.

    Completely empty words, devoid of any substance whatsoever. Would you like to hear my proposal for making the US a perfect place:

    "Once Obama is gone, take away the bad stuff he did, and add a bunch of good stuff. This can definitely be done".

    By your accounting, the above quote makes me a viable candidate for presidency, since I just proposed a plan on how to fix all of America's problems.

    As I said, none of the Republican candidates has provided anything even remotely nearing an alternative to the ACA. They criticize and whine, but unlike Sanders, do not offer anything whatsoever as an alternative.

    Hence they are unqualified to run the country. They don't know how to lead, only how to drag down a leader.

    I don't need to search, it doesn't take a brain scientist to figure out that the system is falling apart.

    And yet, only Sanders is proposing an alternative.

    What she's saying is basically the exact same thing former President Bill Clinton just said the other day in Tennessee while campaigning for Hillary:

    "Playing off Congressman Steve Cohen’s introduction that claimed Bill Clinton was just a “stand-in for the first black president,” Clinton told an audience in Memphis, “You know what we learned from the human genome? We learned that unless your ancestors — everyone of you — are 100 percent, 100 percent from sub-Saharan Africa, we are all mixed race people.”

    So really, Obama wasn't the "first" black President, Clinton is clearly insinuating here (in a political campaign speech for Hillary) since "we're ALL mixed race people," Obama included.

    Anyway, everything is all the fault of White People, don't you know? People of Color have nothing to fix, they're perfect as is, naturally: all their problems come from Whites, as evidenced in this "Black History Month" propaganda piece promoting "White Guilt" (and produced to be shown in American elementary classrooms to encourage acceptance of "White Guilt" and Affirmative Action, aka institutionalized discrimination, in education, by the way.)

    Aso said"its not something finance minister can comment on".He is right,because Mafia of speculators,are waiting to build their moves based on his comment.Neither Abe Shinzo,nor Aso has something to do with whats going on in Stock markets around the world,Japan is not an exception.To blame Abe Shinzo for whats going on with yen is absolutely illogic and nonsense,its SPECULATIONS AND SPECULATORS MAFIA.We all remember what happens in Asia markets in 1997,when SOROS GEORGE one of the pioneers of Speculations Mafia,destroy most of Asian currencies by big well organized speculations,Thai currency lost 40% over night,Malaysia prime minister at that time,MAHATIR MOHAMED commented on what happened"what we built in 40years,SOROS GEORGE destroyed in a week".!! Some say,its because of QE,but i cant understand,if Japanese government is printing money,yen should be down in hell.not strengthen against dollare,more over if its because of QE,I guess states is the exclusive pioneer of this invention,but no one is mentioning a clue about it,Japan is not an exception again.Even though QE is a must sometimes when there is no other solution.I believe speculators will take yen to 114 or 115 against dollar(resistance level)then big selling attack will take yen to 106(fibonaci level)maybe little more,this time there can be Governmental intervene,this supposed to happen before G20 meeting in Shanghai,before there can be an action against violent Speculations.This is just a possible option according to my expectations.

    Please point me at a Republican alternative.

    I already told you and to add to that, the provisions that are muddled and excessive unnecessary costs can be altered by a new Republican majority.

    Not just some vague 'we're going to make it better' comment, and actual proposal about their plan.

    But the Democrats didn't make it better for the majority. If they did, every hospital would take it, but that's not what's happening.

    arrestpaul: Women voters know Bernie never molested or abused women.

    I think you're overestimating voters.

    I posted a few times on here how Hillary as a defense lawyer filed a victim-shaming affidavit against a 12-y-o rape victim, and laughed about getting her client off with a light sentence in the face of damning evidence and two witnesses besides the victim and the perpertrator. And got zero response from the liberal posters.

    Do you really think voters are going to switch to Bernie en masse over Bill and Hillary's women issues? I think they're just going to ignore all that and vote the candidate they hope can beat the GOP, or the first female candidate who ever had a chance of winning the general election. They don't really care much about women's rights. They wouldn't elect someone like that if they did.

    It takes very little energy to deny something, no matter how many instances you add up

    And yet, the right is spending crazy time and energy denying it. Blogs, forums, news reports and more.

    The two numbers are probably not even close. It takes very little energy to deny something, no matter how many instances you add up. Resources spent "trying to fix the problem of unarmed black men being killed" are massive and disproportionate. You can issue another simple assertion that 'Yes it 'tis', if you want. But if I look outside and the sky is blue, and someone tells me no, it's green with purple spots, I'm not bothering to look outside again.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incarceration_in_the_United_States

    ... non-Hispanic blacks accounted for 39.4% of the total prison and jail population in 2009 ...

    Judicial, police, and corrections costs totaled $212 billion in 2011 according to the U.S. Census Bureau. ...

    That's approximately $80 billion USD. A very high fraction of that to "fix the problem of unarmed black men being killed". As opposed to how much spent on denials?
