He should have known better: pulling a stunt like that will have consequences because you can only get off scott free when it is a government-sponsored operation, in which case even murder and mayhem are "on the table", as history teaches us every day.

Yes, if your parents happen to be lifelong friends with a male actor whom you see as a father figure, make sure that you are never alone with him. 

Well, as wise men say, "don't follow leaders", to which I would add my two cents, "and never trust father figures" (to keep their hands in their pockets in the presence of nubile females because the flesh really is weak).

Posted in: Capitol defenders blame bad intelligence for deadly breach See in context

"Intelligence" is a rare commodity in the Washington's "jurassic swamp" where gaslighting sharks and conning crocodiles swim around at the top of the food chain thriving on the gullibility of small fry following the slime trail of their leader MIA. Merrick Garland will have his work cut out for him just to catch a few of these slippery critters, but he can forget about draining it: administrations come and go, but the swamp stays.

Any young woman who allows herself to be alone with an aging star of dubious reputation is asking for trouble or a pay out.

The Chinese for "patriots" translates properly as "poodles" in English. History will not be kind to the cruel bullies of Beijing.

great to see so many posters on here actually like Trumps policy on China

Trump wouldn't know the meaning of the word policy even if he owned a dictionary. And there is every possibility that as the Trump brand goes south the trashy Trumpware made in China may soon be toast.

As Thomas Jefferson once said, *'whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.'*, aka in 2021 it's time to hit the streets and make a REVOLUTION in Myanmar! The military junta must be terminated (with extreme prejudice) asap.

Posted in: Man gets out of taxi on Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge; then jumps to his death See in context

That takes serious balls

More likely a serious mental illness. It's tragic when a boy of twenty still hasn't learned to cherish the precious gift of life despite all the tribulations that existence can inflict and has been unable to acquire the insight and wisdom to understand that even if life may seem meaningless, living is surely meaningful.

I think his legacy will be living rent-free in everyone's head the world over. People still can't get over him.

Like Adi and Musso, then?

Posted in: U.S. coronavirus death toll approaches milestone of 500,000 See in context

"The Buck Stops Here" has never meant anything to sociopath of Trump's ilk, especially since his shockingly inadequate intellectual capacity paralyzed his decision-making and inevitably severely compromised his ability to organize and manage the affairs of state as Potus, a job that was clearly to all but 75 million Americans way over his head. As a result Covid in America today is what it is: 500,000 dead and counting.

To live as an ex-pat pensioner in the midst of poverty in a country with extreme differences of obscene wealth and mass immiseration is to live dangerously indeed.

Posted in: Europe applauds Biden's approach, stresses cooperation See in context

Let's hope "cooperation" is a "two-way street" and not the American "my way or the highway". My personal "litmus test" of Biden's commitment to justice and his "liberal" values will be whether or not he renounces the the vindictive cruelty of government authoritarians that runs like a raw, red gash all through US history: I'm talking about the fate of whistleblower, Julian Assange, who has already suffered enough and more than he deserved in the dungeons of the UK's "Deep State".

The cosmetic choice of Ms. Hashimoto is transparent damage control: her feminine intelligence will ensure that verbal indiscretions like"men talk too much" will never occur.

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

The rabid rabble rouser finally emerged from chewing the carpet his bunker in Florida to rant and rave on right-wing looney tunes TV stations. The sooner criminal charges are brought against him, the sooner America can turn the page on Trumpism and move on to healing a nation half-traumatized by cults and conspiracies.

Trump is talking his way into a padded cell: maybe there's some "method in his madness"?

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

The bogus excuse of "wanting to be a good dad..." just doesn't fly (to Cancun or anywhere else) when the craven hypocrite, Cruz, is prepared to throw his own daughter under the bus in an unconvincing attempt to wriggle out of his gross neglect of duty to his duped constituents who, imho, should have known better than to place their welfare into the hands of that bearded mountebank. Another lesson for the ages, but will they ever learn?

Suga's spoiled son no doubt subscribes to the school of entitlement: "let them eat sushi".

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

For the last 5 years Trump played with immigration first as a dog whistle and then as a loaded gun to trigger a skittish populace into an emotional state of mind that could be manipulated for votes. To call anything Trump mouthed a "policy" would be a gross perversion of the truth. As Potus he had zero interest in his job which he always knew he was singularly unsuited for since his incurious mind has always been utterly incapable of grasping any intellectual concept that has no bearing on his self-enrichment and self-aggrandizement. We can now only hope that in his treatment of immigrants Biden will not repeat the crimes and mistakes of both his predecessors.

The best educational experience a young person can have is to live for a longer or shorter time outside the country they grew up in: it's a game-changer. Germany made the Beatles: they came back from Hamburg to Liverpool transformed. The outside world now beckons the youth of Japan, the lucky few who will return home to "shake it up" in the insular world of "Wa".

Posted in: British PM Johnson backs Tokyo's hosting of Olympics See in context

Boris's "bird's nest" apparently camouflages a balding pate, but there is no hiding his utter lack of competence in his position as PM. His ludicrous daily costume change is more suited to a vaudeville act than the serious job of governing the country. Whatever he "backs" I wouldn't touch with a barge pole.

Posted in: Rush Limbaugh, ‘voice of American conservatism,’ dies at 70 See in context

The best thought I can muster for the uber-angry man whose grifting legacy of cowardice and spite fanned the flames of right-wing revanchism and poisoned the well of free speech is I hope that he, if only for a moment at the end, had the clarity to feel regret and repent his misspent short time on earth sowing seeds of fear and hate.

 I don't think they'll ever grow up.

Could it be that they are coddled and cosseted as children, infantilized by a regimented education system, tossed into the meat grinder of daily toil and overwork and debilitated by sexual repression resulting in so many otaku and other "bonsai" variants of humanity?

...completing it after all the preparation would be a huge success and a symbolic sign of optimism...

I've got no dog in the Olympics and one of the many who are tired of "symbols" and "glasses half-full". I'll just keep shielding inside like the groundhog until I can't see my own shadow when the vaccines or cures arrive.

...politically motivated litigation aimed at slowing down a Trump resurgence, yuck

Yeah, Trump, yuck!

The tsunami of litigation coming Trump's way will mean no more time for binge-watching TV, well, let's say not until he's banged up in orange with Rudy and Roger and the other usual suspects.

Posted in: Trump lashes out at McConnell, calling him 'dour, sullen and unsmiling political hack' See in context

"Mitch is a dour, sullen and unsmiling political hack...

Truth-telling comes hard for Trump, but as the power struggle among Republicans heats up, Trump can be relied upon to spill lotsa unsavory beans. We can also assume that this unvarnished portrait of the Kentucky fixer is just a foretaste of the long and winding road of Trump's journey to accountability for his career of serial criminality as the truth is slowly squeezed out of him through the courts like toothpaste from a tube.

Posted in: Two plead guilty as leading Hong Kong activists go on trial See in context

Two have pled guilty after no doubt being given to understand the consequences of not going along with Beijing's version of an "offer they can't refuse", a tactic universally employed not only by mafia godfathers, but by governments of all stripes as well.

Posted in: Biden faces questions about commitment to minimum wage hike See in context

Biden is too old to learn new tricks or change his spots which is why he was always going to be the DNC's anointed one. As such he will probably fail to address the issues that led the 75 million who, rudely woken from their sleep of the "American Dream", but who in a normal liberal democracy would be naturally drawn to support a social democratic candidate, to pledge their allegiance to a right-wing faux savior, an ignorant and incompetent sociopath whose only concern has never been anything that doesn't benefit his little narcissistic self.

Posted in: Putin indicates Russia will not negotiate territorial dispute with Japan See in context

If Putin hands over the islands, several countries in Eastern Europe and even Japan's old ally, Germany, might start making noises for the Russians to hand back territories snatched after WW2. The Japanese should be thankful for small mercies and that Hokkaido, too, didn't disappear down the Soviet rabbit hole.
