    a Shanghai consumer watchdog said last Friday it had received eight recent reports of iPhones that spontaneously combusted while being used or charged.

    Immediately after this announcement, horse puckey meters went off the scale all around the world.

    Bass,

    Interesting, Hillary was saying that we should respect the voting process and that the loser would concede to the winner and now the woman wants to renege on her words?

    It appears you've been out of the news loop for a few weeks. It's Jill Stein who's filed for the recount, not Clinton.

    _______________________________________________________________________________.

    It speaks volumes that Trump supporters would oppose a recount. If Trump or any of his cabal of sycophantic, opportunistic asshat adviros had any wits about them, they'd throw their arms open wide to the recounts. That is, if they had confidence in the results. And clearly . . . they don't. Afraid of what might be discovered?

    Wait a sec. What is that pithy little ditty "Law & Order" conservatives like to toss out whenever a cop shoots an unarmed citizen for fleeing?

    Ah, yes, I remember: "If you haven't done anything wrong, then why run away?"

    Bass,

    Trump is president and will remain so for the next 4 or 8 years, get used to it. You just might grow to love the guy.

    The guy mocks the disabled, makes blatantly racist statements, and treats women like trash. No, it is very unlikely that anyone opposed to him will come to "love" him. The fact that you've so willingly ignored what a vulgar human being Trump actually is probably why you can't fathom the continued opposition to his presidency. He's an offensive man on every level. He will not be "loved" by Laguna or anyone else with even a medicum of human decency.

    Tokyo-Engr,

    Yes you make some good points. You should have said that in the first place.

    Horse puckey. Don't sit there and don the mantle of reason and magnanimous politeness , as if none of the points I made weren't made before. The were made frequently and vocally throughout the election, and were roundly ignored in favor of elevating an utterly contemptible man to the presidency.

    And with nary a peep of dissent from the GOP. The so-called moral authority of the GOP withered to ashes in the face of an angry, populist, but ultimately misguided mob. Sad and pathetic for this United States.

    Tokyo-Engr,

    you really need to stoop so low to name calling like that? Do not see how that accomplishes anything.

    Oh, the irony of being PC-policed by you.

    Here, let me make things clear for you.

    "Bunch of mewling pussies, the lot of them" = the Republican Party laughed at Trump's candidacy in the beginning because they believed, and rightly so, that the electorate couldn't possibly support the candidacy of someone so fundamentally broken, morally, ethically, and legally. Yet Trump trounced them with populist drivel steeped in racist hate. Then the GOP shuddered when Trump was on the verge of winning the nomination, believing, rightly so, that someone so fundamentally dishonest and manipulative was not good for the nation. Then the GOP fought amongst itself, with one side believing, rightly so, that the Trump nomination was a horrific blemish on the Party and the other worrying about their own political futures for daring to oppose populist, racism-fueled "white rage." And in the end, opposition to Trump withered away as the GOP gave up moral high ground and acquiesced to Trump threats of political retribution for ever daring to question his right to be a racist, a misogynist, and an ignorant demagogue with a flagrant penchant for lying publicly and often. Now there is virtually no GOP opposition to Trump and his vulgar existence. Even Ted Cruz, with all of his bluster and righteous indignation, sees fit to align with Trump for his own political survival. The GOP collapsed as a voice for conservative America and opted instead to align itself with rampant xenophobia, racism, and sexism.

    So, in other words, a bunch of mewling pussies, the lot of them.

    I was simply dispensing with redundancy for something the American public either already knows, or very soon will come to understand, as Trump runs roughshod over every standard of statesmanship ever known in modern democracies while the GOP issues nary a peep.

    Does that raise the level of discourse enough for you?

    "Trump's threat to end Cuba detente may rouse GOP opposition"

    I wouldn't count on the GOP for help mitigating the horrors of a Trump presidency. It's already amply demonstrated this election cycle that they are little most than an impotent pack of boot-licking hyaena. Integrity in the GOP has been replaced by ineptitude. Courage has been supplanted by cowardice. The GOP is effectively dead and will be roused to help no one.

    Unless, of course, it might keep them out of the crosshairs of Trump and the alt-right.

    Serrano,

    H.A. Good man is not a news source. He's not and investigative journalist. He's a failed sci-fi-writer-turned-video-blogger. Every piece of so-called "news" you've posted over the past 4 months has been from this Goodman hack. And he's not even good at his regularly scheduled rants. He sounds like someone coming down off of coke, and not the refreshing beverage variety.

    Broaden your horizons and get a new news source.

    The New York billionaire . . . called the developing recount effort “a scam” in a statement released by his transition team. . . . The results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing,”

    I'll second that. Good. It speaks volumes that the very first instance of voter fraud uncovered this cycle was executed by a Trump supporter, Iowan and bigoted asshat in her own right, Terri Rote.

    These volunteers are there to harass and intimidate and they wouldn't know actual voter fraud if it came up and bit them on the heinie.

    Besides, I don't know how these volunteers are going to be able to realistically spot the same person voting twice, since for all intents and purposes, minorities all look alike to them.

    So, I hope you take a few seconds to realize that many are sick-n-tired of the bullshit. Anything is better than the establishment pric's.

    Really, now? Anything is better? Anything?

    Talk about being blind.

    Trump in this campaign has normalized racism at the national level. You've got the National Front, the American Nazi Party, and The Klu Klux Klan stumping for him on the campaign trail. No, Trump doesn't explicitly endorse their activities, but he isn't exactly saying anything in protest either. This is something unseen in a national political campaign since the 1960s.

    He's walked back decades of work in getting society to respect and value women as more than a piece of ass, and his core supporters eat that garbage up. Grabbing women by their genitals? His core supporters turned that into a punchline at his rallies. They even had shirts and hats made up. He's normalized misogyny at a national level.

    He rails against anyone who disagrees with him, not by picking apart their arguments with mature, substantive counter arguments. He does it by attacking them personally. If you have disabilities and you disagree with Trump, then he mocks your disability. If you are religious and you disagree with Trump, then he mocks your religion. If you aren't white and you disagree with him, then he mocks your ethnic heritage.

    He TWEETS, FFS, at 3:00 AM about sex tapes that don't exist because he's angry someone would dare invoke his obnoxious behavior towards a bueauty queen.

    He has no actionable domestic or foreign policies to offer beyond the copious application of superlatives. He is quick to anger and whines like a child when he feels like he's losing.

    You honestly expect anyone to believe that such a person is the perfect solution to "establishment prics [sic]?"

    Anything is better? Really? Really?!

    Wake up, man. I will take an experienced, educated, competent "establishment pric[k]" over a "we had to destroy the village to save it" emotionally crippled candidate any day of the week. And if you really were able to see past your own sanctimonious arrogance, you'd recognize that losing the nose to spite the face is an absolutely stupid way to go about picking a president whose policies could adversely affect the lives of literally billions of people around the globe.

    the only reason trump will not be elected is because of election fraud.

    The only reason Trump will not get elected is because he's a vile, detestable, amoral human being who panders to the worst humanity has to offer in order to feed his insatiably huge, casually racist, unrepentantly mysogynisitc ego.

    In short, he's an epic a-hole. That's why he'll lose.

    Garfield1275,

    Excellent post. You nailed it.

    A common misconception is that overtime occurs because Japanese workers simply decide of their own volition to stay after hours. This isn't the even remotely case the majority of the time. Workers stay because there is too much work yet to be done and no one else able or willing to do it.

    The reality is that poor management, crippling inefficiency, and an absurdly unrealistic expectation of how much work one person can realistically do in a typical 8-hour day all combine with a toxic work environment rife with power harassment and petty jealousies to create the perfect storm for these 60, 70, and 80-hour work weeks that have long been a de facto way of life in corporate Japan.

    Change has to come from internal sources, and it has to come from the top. But it also has to come from the bottom in the form of rank-and-file workers creating and demanding more from effective labor unions -- and not these watered-down wholly impotent versions that are really little more than management-run and management-sanctioned control apparatuses.

    "Here we go again with the Clintons — you remember the impeachment and the problems.” Trump said Thursday at a rally in Jacksonville. “That’s not what we need in our country, folks. We need someone who is ready to go to work.”

    Who does Trump think he's fooling? Even if he were to get elected, his presidency will immediately start off with noe one, but two indictments. One for fraud through his Trump "university" scam, and another for raping a 13-year-old in the 90s.

    Does he think these two things are going to magically go away?

    MagicalPJ,

    It's a worldwide problem, not exclusively a Japanese problem.

    I know it's a worldwide problem. Absolutely. But I'm trying to avoid the wrath of the JT moderators for unnecessarily bringing in comparisons with other countries. They've been a bit touchy about that of late.

    NOOOO!!! Say it isn't so! The Old Boy's Club that is Japanese politics treating female lawmakers like trash? I refuse to believe it! (rolls eyes)

    These a-holes need to be named and shamed publicly. Don't know how that is going to happen. It would take a fellow male lawmaker of three with spines and a minimum degree of intestinal fortitude to buck their misogynist peers to make a dent in this issue. Sadly, I don't see that kind of courage anywhere in the current generation of Japanese politicians.

    Bass,

    Many of us feel the same about James O'Keefe

    Fabricating evidence, violating federal wiretapping laws, trespassing on federal property, defaming people, lying, lying, and more lying, all for the purpose of creating a false narrative regarding voter registration, abortion, and NPR funding that the right still clings to to this very day, even though his "work," if you can call it such, has been roundly and soundly debunked at complete and utter fraud. Conservative still believe ACORN was operating illegally. It wasn't. They still believe Planned Parenthood was illegally selling aborted fetus tissues. It wasn't That NPR was operating a pay-to-play fundraising model. It wasn't

    Sorry, but sending ducks to a Trump rally doesn't fall in the same ball park, city, continent, or planet as the sleeze self-proclaimed muckraker O'Keefe regularly parades as fact. That you would think his work is "cover" makes you as morally reprehensible as him.

    Well, now we do know thanks to Assange and Wikileaks.

    Do you? Do you really? Where's the paper trail? The money trail? The actual marching orders indicating coordinated collusion between Clinton, the DNC, mass media, the justice department, and the FBI? Because it sure as heck wasn't in the Wikileaks emails. Private conversations indicating personal opinions and opposing stances. That's about it. The evidence doesn't exist.

    Contrarily, evidence of Donald Trump being an insufferable, vulgar, boorish a-hole is so plentiful, we're actually spoiled for choice.

    That's what we all were hoping for, then the dream disintegrated and we woke realiazing as reality sets in that we are dealing corrupt Democrats......again!

    The melodramatics are swell, but the truth at the end of the day is Clinton's campaign hasn't done a damned thing to Trump that he hasn't already done to himself. If you're going to run as a flawed candidate, you'd better be prepared to weather the consequences of those flaws. Clearly, Clinton's sins are easier to forgive than Trump's, and that pisses you off to know end because you know that at the end of the day, this is exactly how it always should have been.

    That you could in good conscience back Trump is absolutely astonishing. You really should be looking in the mirror a little more closely after this campaign is over and asking yourself what piece of your soul you sacrificed to overlook how vile Trump is as a man just to satisfy your hatred of Clinton.

    By the way, where is Epstein these days??

    I don't know. Why don't you ask Donal Trump?

    Well, after reading the Wikileaks, it seems that Democrats are more racist than what we were all led to believe.

    Does it now? Really? Good luck with furthering that narrative.

    I prefer to use the word despicable,

    Ducks? Despicable? You need an enema, Bass.

    Bass4Funk, Turbostat, et al.,

    Hee hee! Sending guys dressed up as Donald Duck to Trump campaign rallies to draw attention to his refusal to release his taxes isn't dirty. It isn't sneaky. It's damned funny and damned clever, is what it is. : )

    Honestly, you muppets wouldn't know what actual "election rigging” meant if it walked up to in the middle of the day and smacked you upside the head with a fresh hanging chad. You just riff off of Trump's idiocy, as clueless and as ignorant as ever.

    Presenting one's case isn't election rigging. Pointing out the flaws of one's opponent is not election rigging. Reminding voters of the stark difference between you and your opponent is not election rigging. Ultimately changing the minds of voters isn't election rigging either.

    It's all called something mysterious and magical called "campaigning."

    To even suggest that Clinton's use of an election consulting company indicates a case of election rigging reinforces what everyone already knows to be true: Trump supporters tend to be ill-informed dolts. Perhaps if Trump had endeavored to raise the level of discourse during this campaign above penis size, how he like to manhandle women, and how much contempt and disdain he has for women, minorities, Muslims, POWs, Gold Star families, and pretty much anyone who doesn't agree with him, he might be in less dries straits than he obviously is now.

    Oh, BTW:

    http://conservativecampaignconsulting.com

    http://savipoliticalconsulting.com

    http://revolvis.com

    That's just three similar consulting companies out there culled from a 10-second Google search that are for-profit and serve the election campaign needs of conservative candidates. Not that I expect you to view the following as any more than another example of the global shadow cabal trying to bend your will, here's some food for thought about campaign consulting companies:

    Everyone uses them, but it would seem Democrats are savvy enough to hire at least the funnier ones, wouldn't it?

    Quack quack!
