    His defense counsel had demanded a suspended sentence, saying the defendant was playing the game only when his vehicle was stopped at the intersection but not when the vehicle was moving.

    Going forward people can use 'just looked up from my Pokemon Go' as an excuse for mowing down anything in their path.

He said that I’m ‘all talk’ and ‘no action,'” reads a DNC fundraising email sent Saturday. “I’ve been beaten bloody, tear-gassed, fighting for what’s right for America.

We’re ready for the next four years,” the email adds before asking, “Are you with us? Join me and chip in whatever you can today to help Democrats stand up to injustice.” ...

    Another source says:

    The six new coastguard patrol boats had a total value of 38.5 billion yen ($338 million) and Vietnam would get a concessional loan to pay for them, a Japanese official said. No timeline for delivery has been discussed yet. Japan had previously agreed to provide six old patrol boats to Vietnam.

    Capsule hotel units are pretty cheap on Alibaba. And there are kilometers and kilometers of empty land in Japan. Probably lots of empty islands. Just pick one, build a ferry dock, load it up with capsules.

    Tan is a Chinese name, Min Nan dialect, common in the Philippines. Same character as Chen in Pinyin and Chan in HK.

    And if the billions of laborers and working class around the world suddenly disappeared, what would happen to these men?

    They'd put the managers out in the fields.

    mainly because the naysayers say it's financially impossible.

    Clearly other countries do it. It's not done in the USA because of the nature and direction of health industry lobbies.

    Strangerland: No kidding, ...

    I didn't know it either but just saw it claimed on a meme and looked it up on wikipedia ... Now I understand (bass4funk's?) claim that Hillary won the popular vote three times but lost both elections in spite of it ...

    How many people are employed directly or indirectly by these men?

    If they and their wealth suddenly disappeared, how many would be unemployed?

    And if the governments suddenly doubled taxes on them, how much of that tax do you think the governments would allow to trickle down to the poor? The governments take in huge revenues already!

    Strangerland - Yeah, why should the candidate that gets the most votes win in an democracy win? The logic of having the winner be the candidate with the most votes is just baffling. I mean, it's a democracy, right?

    You've (probably) been singing Obama's praises for the last 8 to 10 years ...

    ... in spite of his loss of the popular vote to Hillary in the 2008 primary.

    Barack Obama, Jr.: 17,584,692

    Hillary Rodham Clinton: 17,857,501

    Strangerland: I like it. It's got a bit of a bite/kick to it. I wouldn't say I love it, but it tastes good to me.

    TheGodfather: No comment.

    In an ideal world, people could walk around whenever and they want. In the real world, in most places it's a risk to do so.

    SuperLib: Imagine if Obama responded to Trump and the nutjob birthers the way Trump has responded to Lewis. Night and day difference between these two men.

    You're not kidding. Bob Creamer's 300+ visits to the White House AFTER Obama gained the presidency should have told you that.

    Maybe kids kept bringing the sort of rulers with math tables on them, so finally all rulers were banned. Or maybe it's a holdover from the days of slide rules.
