    Serendipitous,

    The fact also remains that no one of importance has endorsed Trump and no big newspapers have either. Even Arizona's biggest newspaper which hasn't endorsed a Democrat in its 126-year history has now endorsed Hillary...

    Yes, but don't you know? Any organzation that supports Hillary or, worse yet, does not support Trump, is part of some vast and nefarious global cabal bent on perpetuating the status quo" the cabal is comprised of entities ranging from Fox News the Department of Justice and goes all the way down to the most poorly circulated small-town newspaper. Everyone is part of this cabal, and if you're not with Trump, you're clearly with the cabal or, at the very least, an unwitting minion.

    At least that's how Fizzbit would have everyone believe as he rehashes the glory days of his college sophomore year when he was leader of an "anti-establishment" group headquartered in the student union basement.

    What was actually Hillary's ideas besides bringing up the irrelevant past?

    The "be" verb you're looking for there is "were," not "was," Mr. "Journalist." And bringing up matters that speak directly to Trump's character as a person are very relevant to the discussion. A man who would disparage women on a regular basis is not a man who can be expected to fairly represent a full one-half of the electorate as the president of the United States.

    Bringing up the infidelities of Clinton's husband, however, is not relevant. I know perfectly well you understand the difference, yet choose to not recognize it. But that's okay. We all understand that about you now.

    We just got lucky that a true American is running for president and not some establishment tool.

    Trump?! A true American? I never was handed $14 million (adjusted) dollars from my pop and told to go make a go of it in the world. I've never owned and the lost casinos. I've never told minorities they can't live/work/be near me. I've never disparaged a woman. I've never been divorced, much less three times. I've never mocked the disabled. I've never mocked a veteran. I've never wiggled my way out of paying taxes and boasted about it on national TV.

    But these are all things Trump has done.

    True American, my heinie. He's a fraud.

    And now it's been revealed that his "foundation" (cough! cough!) didn't actually have a license to solicit donations. The hits just keep coming, and October isn't even here yet.

    Red suns,

    To be clear, my anecdote was related to a friend, not a wife.

    As to your your suggestion that Filipinos are unaware of the Holocaust, that's simply untrue. In fact, according to the 2015 Unesco International Status of Education About the Holocaust report, the Philippines stands with Germany, France, Poland, the United States, and Russia, to name but a few "Occidental" nations, for providing specific, direct secondary school and university-level education on the Holocaust. No, it's not because the Holocaust isn't taught in the Philippines.

    And it isn't because the Philippines were untouched by the Holocaust either. 1,200 European Jews escaped to the Philippines between 1937 and 1941 and found refuge thanks largely to the efforts of Manuel Quezon, the first president of the Philippine Commonwealth. Quezon originally wanted to allow resettlement of some 10,000 Jews in the Philippines, but the Pacific War made that impossible. The point here is that Filipinos were acutely aware of what was happening to Jews in Europe. Of course, that safety wasn't guaranteed once the Japanese Imperial Army invaded and savaged the population.

    No, Red suns. Filipinos absolutely should know better about fascists.

    While it is very tempting to quip that perhaps Chris Christie should have put the energy he expended on laughing his butt off about the politically motivated lane closures on the George Washington Bridge into making certain his state's trains were running more safely, the truth is the Positive Train Control System being talked about are going to take about 20 years and a boatload of money Jersey doesn't doesn't have to implement in its trains and the over 1000 miles of track that make up the New Jersey rail system.

    The driver needs to be looked at very carefully.

    Fizzbit,

    Doesn't sound like a "nutter" to me.

    Oh really?

    When this asshat was mayor of Davao in 1989 during a siege of a city jail, a 36-year-old Australian missionary by the name of Jacqueline Hamill was raped repeatedly and then murdered by the inmates.

    Duterte make this comment at a campaign rally:

    "They raped all of the women... There was this Australian lay minister... when they took them out... I saw her face and I thought, 'Son of a bitch. What a pity ... they raped her, they all lined up. I was mad she was raped but she was so beautiful. I thought, the mayor should have been first..."

    Yeah, he's a sociopath.

    _______________________________________________________________________.

    Thunderbird2,

    I have a Filipina friend who laps all of Duterte's rhetoric up like sweet milk, thinking the sun shines out of his... you get the idea.

    I have a similar friend from the Philippines as well. Same thing. She was going on and on about how she went home for the summer and waxed on and on about how she "felt the safest she had ever felt in the Philippines." I asked her if she was concerned at all about people being falsely accused of being drug dealers or users and being killed accidentally. She said she didn't believe there was any way a mistake could be made because everyone "knows" the people being killed were actually dealers or users. I asked her what she thought might happen if Duterte decided tomorrow that, say, Muslims needed to be rounded up and exterminated because they threatened the peace, she said, "Oh, that would never happen."

    When I told her, "That's what the Jews thought when the Poles were being rounded up," she said, "What? What do you mean?"

    Why would she? She's got Comey to protect her.

    Ah, again with the "Everyone's On Hillary's Side" paranoia. The courts, the Department of Justice, the media, the Left, women, minorities... Anyone else I'm missing there?

    So, as voters, we are just expected to believe her ?

    No, I expect you to believe the FBI's forensic scientists who analyzed her server setup and found no evidence of a breach.

    Hmmm...how many times did Hillary say, she know nothing about her emails, how they disappeared, what happened to her server and everyone involved mysteriously received FBI immunity, every report on her is redacted??

    The more important takeaway here is that she didn't invoke the fifth amendment because she didn't need to.

    There really can be no upside to pursuing Bill's infidelities. If I recall correctly, when it was brought up earlier in Trump's campaign, there was some chatter about how Clinton supposedly did such a disservice to women by staying with Bill. And this was coming from the right, of all places.

    I'm genuinely curious to see how Trump spins that when his conservative base is supposed to be all about the sanctity of marriage. Or at least that's how they'd like to view themselves when whinging about gay marriage.

    Hillary catches her husband cheating, forgives him, and remains married to him as a fulfillment of vows speaking to "better or worse," and that's supposed to make her . . . a villain? Hmm...

    Yeah, Donald. Go ahead. Did into it deep. Get intensely personal. Go further with that thread of reasoning you went with at the start about how Bill's infidelities were because Hillary couldn't satisfy him sexually. Maybe you could throw in a few jabs about Hillary's body image while you're at it. Go for it. Show your base you aren't going to take any guff from a woman.

    Wow. His supporters want solutions and he gives them Bill Clinton.

    I'd take him back to the RNC and demand a refund, if I were them. He's clearly broken.

    I have a feeling the people getting worked up about this the most don't speak Japanese.

    That's funny, because I was just thinking that the people acting the most blasé about it likely had only a rudimentary understanding of Japanese history, culture, and society to be so dismissive, not to mention having never been on the receiving end of true institutionalized discrimination.

    Wolfpack,

    I thought the new normal was that national security information was pretty much public information. That's how Hillary treats it.

    You couldn't have picked a better example of the double standards and mind-numbing hypocrisy that is the bread and butter of conservatives.

    One, my parents always taught me that two wrongs don't make a right. Clearly, and quite ironically, your parents espoused far different values.

    Two, Clinton's email server was not publicly accessible and you frickin' know it. Get your head on straight, man.

    Three, Trump aired national security protocols in a public and nationally -- and presumably internationally -- broadcast forum. He weakened our nation with that grandstanding stunt.

    You conservatives like to piss and moan like incontinent old geezers about how Obama acts like he's the smartest guy in the room, but when Trump takes a highly classified security briefing as an opportunity to show off and say, "Hey, everyone! Listen to what I'm now privy to! I'm gonna' know secrets so bigly!" not a goddamned peep from you.

    You guys are children, is what you are.

    bullfighter,

    Interesting that a posting (not mine) that s nothing more than a link to the pamphlet in question collects down votes.

    Your post consisted of precisely the following:

    bullfighterSep. 27, 2016 - 10:56PM JST

    Maybe the professor needs to get a life, but the mayor definitely needs to let people get their own lives; not just blindly follow male-serving stereotypes.

    Do you really think the major actually penned this leaflet himself? Probably written by low level staff, quite possibly women.

    The article says

    The illustrations suggest the relationship between a husband and wife is akin to that of a master and servant, the plaintiff claims.

    That is his claim. Not having seen the illustrations myself, I cannot judge whether they present "male-serving stereotypes." It may be that this guy is just looking to make a name for himself. It could be that he doesn't like the mayor personally.

    Here is a link to a reproduction of the handout. Unfortunately, it is too small for me to read. Those with better eyesight might have a look at it.

    http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20160926-00000032-asahi-soci.view-000

    In any event, is it not odd that a guy is doing the protesting? If there is anything really offensive in the pamphlet, it should be women protesting, not some 55-year old oyaji.

    The link didn't cause the downvotes. Your suggestion that only women should be protesting when faced with gender discrimination is what justifiably earned the downvotes.

    I'll say it again; a beauty queen is not supposed to pork out on tortillas, black beans, and louisiana sausage.

    And I'll say it 'cause it needs to be said. Stop going out of your way to be an ass.

    I know it's gained popularity because of companies like Google that tout the open office design, but it honestly sucks massive eggs. The problem is that people in an open setting somehow get it in their heads that the normal conventions for speaking with someone no longer apply. Out of the clear blue, "Hey, Barry. How do you blah blah blah?" No warning. No foreplay. "Hey Kate, do you have a sec? No? Well, this will only take a moment. Blah blah blah blah," the deadline you're working against be damned. It's utterly maddening.

    Open office designs foster an atmosphere of, "I'm the most important person in this office and I demand you address my needs above yours. Here. Now!"

    In short, open office designs are the archnemesis of productivity because people can't seem to exercise simple manners or common sense when working in one.

    Why do coworkers like me wear headphones in an open office? Because we are desperately trying to tune you out so we can get some damned work done.

    If you really need me, send me a memo like normal people and I'll get back to you when I'm able.

    Posted in: Do you find it annoying when you're trying to get a co-worker's attention in the office but can't because they are listening to music? Do you think companies should ban employees listening to whatever it is they listen to, especially in an open office where employees need to communicate with each other?

    Bad news for Hillary - she's already used up virtually all of her ammunition - the birther BS, Trump's tax returns, his politically incorrect references to some women. She ain't got nothing left...

    I'm not too proud to repost my own stuff.

    I don't think Clinton has even started in on Trump yet. The birther issue, sexism, and racism still have plenty of mileage. Not to mention Trump's attacks on veterans, Gold Star families, people with special needs, and, of course, Mexican-Americans in his characterization that immigrants to this nation, legal or otherwise, are thieves, rapists, and killers being "sent" to the US by the Mexican government.

    And, of course, there's The Wall™ and Trump University fraud lawsuits and the unpaid back-taxes and unpaid wages his company owes at numerous properties across the United States.

    Clinton has also barely even scratched the surface of Trump's numerous questionable ties to Russia and Vladimir Putin.

    And then we've got the issue of Trump's proposed War on Muslim Americans to muddle through.

    And we haven't even gotten to the salient truth that Trump has virtually nothing in terms of concrete, actionable ideas to address, fix, or otherwise acknowledge any of the above.

    Oh, Hilary's got plenty of material to work with, and that's without revisiting the new material he provided when he boasted about not paying taxes, criticized a beauty queen for "getting fat," and went on a ridiculous tirade against Rosie O'Donnell.

    Bass,

    . . Trump possibly using coke or Obama possibly being a Muslim? I know you're on the fence on the second question.

    Yup

    And that answer right there is precisely why no one but your own echo chamber of Trump sycophants will give even the briefest moment of consideration to the things you contribute here. There's simply no point. You try to sounds reasonable by peppering your posts with discussions about law and fairness, but that goes right down the toilet when you perpetuate bigoted garbage like this.

    One, Obama isn't Muslim. He's been a practicing Christian for at least 25 years.

    Two, so what if he is Muslim? You got a problem with that?

    Um... are you basing that assertion on what actually happened or what Trump said happened?

    Probably based on what 4chan alt-right dip-wits said. Trump didn't really have much to say after the debate. He just slinked away and skipped out on parties thrown for him.

    Please, Donald, yes! Please don't change a single thing about how you prep for a debate. I like things just the way they are: The Donald - Unfiltered! Uncensored! Unleashed!©

    The absolute best irony of the entire debate was that despite a monthlong effort to paint Clinton as lacking the physical stamina necessary to be president, it turned out to be Trump left huffing, puffing, and red faced at the end of a sustained 50-minute ass whooping.

    If he can't find the physical and mental fortitude to make it through a 95-minute debate where presumably half of the audience was on his side, how the hell is he going to make it in the Oval Office, or standing in front of what will most certainly be a hostile Congress, or sitting across the table from any number of foreign leaders he will invariably piss off with his decidedly obnoxious Trumpiness?

    And he's still got two more of these debates to muddle through. Hope he has Doc Bornstein on speed-dial.
