Agree, as long as dictatorships like China and Russia have a veto the security council is just a talk shop

A parent's worst tragedy. There has to be standards and licenses for all daycare facilities, official or not. And crying means the infant needs something, not to be shut in a room. Anybody who thinks otherwise is useless as a caregiver.

Given the average age of the LDP she could probably jump over most without a sweat. We need a different perspective on handling China and NK. The old methods are not giving the results Japan needs.

I'm not sure more profiling would necessarily work. The FBI had this jerk in for questioning twice and let him go. Of course they completely missed the 9/11 plot too.
Now, if somebody in that club had the means to take the jerk out that might have helped. Heaven knows the government isn't going to help you.

Yes, the women in Koln at new years would agree. This whole idea of swamping a liberal culture with people from a culture stuck in a mindset from 500 years ago is a huge mistake.

Abusers like that don't deserve a child back. Of course he "forgives" him. Poor kid is probably terrified of what will happen next.

Yeah, three. One for each of the fatties. The first two are still getting fantastic golf scores, after all. And why is NK, a nuclear pariah, lecturing Obama?

Wrong Stranger, that is exactly what they are asking for. If I, as a male, identify as a female, I would be allowed to use the women's bathroom.
Now in university we had coed dorms with coed bathrooms but you had to choose to be there. There were plenty of gender specific floors and bathrooms.
Now it seems that gender is something you can change and, even if you aren't physically changed, can use whatever bathroom you want. That's bizarre.

I know quite a few highly educated Japanese women who ended up in SoCal because there was no opportunity in Japan. It's a brain drain that is completely unnecessary.

That is so sad. Karl, We were seconds away from where you're at and even that won't go away. You wonder if society ever will.

With the Russians in Ukraine the Baltic States and Poland are feeling vulnerable. As NATO members they are going to be seeking protection. If Putin wasn't pushing the military to prop up his dictatorship none of this would be necessary but there you are.

OK, so the Japanese belch but they don't pass gas? What do they do then? And who gives a fart?
Of course in China playing with ones nose is considered very rude. It's a wonder the Chinese come to Japan at all. Maybe they don't take the trains?

I don't think Obama is clear about anything in Syria. Anybody remember the "red line of using poison gas?" Don't get your knickers in a twist Obama, Putin might die laughing.
