Posted in: Republicans test history in vote against pandemic relief See in context

Early Saturday morning, 210 House Republicans joined two Democrats in voting against a $1.9 trillion pandemic relief package that would send $1,400 checks to most Americans and hundreds of billions more to help open schools, revive struggling businesses 

Oh Democrats care about opening schools and struggling businesses suddenly? Didn't see much of that in 2020.

To be fair, he was correct for four years of the Trump administration

I seem to recall you being irate with businesses working Saudi Arabia even after the Khashoggi murder. Why does Biden get a pass?

Posted in: Survey shows many seniors undecided about vaccination See in context

Past couple of months, I saw several segments on the morning news showing people suffering side effects from the vaccine. You can't blame people for people being a bit hesitant.

The common American cares about gas prices. You make their gas prices increase, you will get an earful. Nothing will happen with Sudi Arabia, sorry.

Looks like something those living in their parents' basement will try to tear down. Following that, they will loot and burn down the entire facility including this.

Kind of like an episode of "Locked Up Abroad", I wish for justice for those who pay people to carry luggage with smuggled as much as I don't feel any shock for those arrested after being duped or looking for money into carrying those suitcases.

Thomas Bach saying yesterday a ruling on whether to allow foreign spectators could come in April or May.

Sooner is better. It is trip of a lifetime for some and making plans within 3 months is not easy.

Praying for a successful surgery and that he will be able to fully recover amd continue his great comeback. My high school used to play against Tiger's Western High School in golf so I have followed him closely and rooted for Tiger through turbulent times.

Not to be outdone, Trump will launch his own podcast next week with international superstar Scott Baio.

Followed by Biden's podcast with a trio of queens Kim Kardashian, Rosie O'Donnell and Cardi B. Can't freakin' wait!

Sakuma suffered a gunshot wound in the head and police have launched a murder investigation.

and if it is gang-related, it will remain "unsolved" and flyers will be passed out at train stations every anniversary.

Fauci, though I don't care for him, should be the one in charge in trying to persuade the public to be pro-vaccine since he seems to know what is going on. Secondly, Zuckerburg and Dorsey need to take it with proof.

Posted in: Biden declares America, trans-Atlantic alliance 'back' See in context

American and Europe need to be strong against the Russian threat.

Sure, go and ask any European about how much they are worried about Russia. You ever noticed that you completely ignore anything China is doing?

Posted in: Trump repeats election claims in TV interviews See in context

Same as the posters who still support him, just noise. Nothing behind it. Move on.

Things tend to go away if you ignore them, yet here you are. Hate brings ratings which in turn brings money. Many celebrities can vouch for that.

Posted in: After criticism over Mexico trip, Cruz flies back to frozen Texas See in context

but that won't of course stop you from inventing things to rant about.

OK, so this is you excusing Ted Cruz for being on holiday instead of working in a state of emergency. If he MUST cut his holiday short to tend to the people of his State's needs, aren't the millions of people out of work in need of money also important? No, I guess.

Posted in: Biden, Democrats consider piecemeal approach to immigration reform See in context

The United States has more immigrants than any other country in the world. Today, more than 40 million people living in the U.S. were born in another country, accounting for about one-fifth of the world’s migrants. The population of immigrants is also very diverse, with just about every country in the world represented among U.S. immigrants.

Wait, that many entered the U.S. that you called the most racist and oppressed country on the planet?

Oh yeah, Howard Stern is anti-Trump and will never vote Republican again. I guess for that alone, the left has forgiven him. The list of bigoted, sexist and homophobic slurs with him is endless. He is yours now, congrats!

Posted in: The best TV shows in Japan to study Japanese See in context

Go with textbooks and classes.

I found the best way to learn Japanese is by making friends that don't speak English. They view you as a person and not someone to leech English off of. Texting is how I learned most of the Japanese I know.

Posted in: Northeastern Japan braces for aftershocks after Saturday's quake See in context

Yet overall it is still amazing that casualties and damages have remained very low or minimal across affected areas.

Many Japan homes/structures have been for built to be earthquake safe since the Hanshin earthquake. The death toll from 3/11 was mostly by the tsunami than the earthquake itself. I always think what would happen to places like China or Central/South Americs if a 7.3 earthquake hit in those parts.

No, you’re just angry Trump was acquitted. Just relax, it was the right and only thing to do.

I just can't believe people are so anti-democracy lol

Believe me, absolutely NO ONE is or will be remotely upset about not hearing about Trump ever again.

Can't be avoided though. Even in Biden topics, all I still hear about is Trump.

Not sure which people are angry about the most here, the fact that he was acquitted or that he will be out of the headlines and lose out on their daily bashing.

Posted in: Senate acquits Trump as Republicans save him See in context

Trump will be a liability for the republicans. A black mark.

Same people who say this would have also said it would be the end of the Republican party if he was convicted because Trump supporters would turn their backs on the party. Save your your job or have a black sheep in your company, which would you choose?

I am far from a JT fan but the whole Janet thing was staged and I am sick of people playing the race card with it. If it was a black man that did it, what would it be called then? He was dating her then anyways.

One has to laugh at the audacity of American conservatives, playing the victim and comparing themselves to the 6 million + who were exterminated.

smh So it is perfectly fine to compare conservatives to those that exterminated 6 million+? I gotcha!
