I think this is at least partially U.S. news, as it involves Trump:

For 1,500 years, sumo wrestling has been done a particular way. Then Trump arrives and all THAT nonsense is out the window!

I especially liked the four foot made-up trophy Trump awarded the victor (whose victory he barely watched), called the "United States President's Cup", which he hopes will continue to be awarded "for many hundreds of years", lol!!

Trump was merely trying to improve the USA's relationship with China after the recent tariff war. No reason to mock a sincere gesture of appreciation.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Do any of us have a right to life would be my reply. I would also ask what do view as a "right to life".  Have you ever been in a situation where you needed to tell someone to have an abortion of your child because of whatever reason you can think of.  Have you ever lived with that decision if you chose abortion.  I can tell you from experience that I have been there.  I can tell you I did not come to my viewpoint based on some lofty ideals but instead I walked into the fire and came out on the other end.  So when I see your words "right to life", I wonder what experience have you had in such a situation. What experience have you had thinking about the termination of your child and then following through with it.  What experience have you had living with that decision.

I personally cannot think of one reason why any child should not be born and giving a chance to live and carve out their own destiny.  I do not believe we as society should be judge and jury condemning a life to termination because we have the power to do so.  I have the power to come into your home and kill you and by my own self standards I can believe whether or not you have the "right to life" and if the laws give the ability would that still be ok.

So do you have an answer to the question?

I gave you my answer and if you did not like it we can easily end this discussion which I am ok with.

During the interview the interviewer made several references to Ben book and then challenge Ben on exactly that and Ben got angry.  You forget that once Ben got angry and basically quite the interview there wasn't a chance to go any further.  From what I take is that everyone must treat Ben with kid gloves but never challenge his position like he does all the time.

You seem to love your analogies but in the end all I see is excuses.  None of your analogies plays out to what happen but is just you looking for a way to excuse Ben and how he behaved.  I will give you credit though, if I ever need an excuse for anything wrong that I have done, I will definitely look you up because I am sure you will have a number of them ready.

He makes references to what Ben's said but doesn't seem to make any direct references to the book. Go further? The 'interview' was already over 15 minutes. How long does it take to get to the point? Obviously Ben has all day to sit and be whipped, because who doesn't?

Let's have a party. I'll bring the excuses and you can bring the spin and denial. Better yet, let's record it, post it online, and call it an interview...

How do we know if he would have gotten to any other parts of the book since Ben couldn't take the first few questions. If you are going to be someone who throws around your opinion like an AX then maybe you should also be just as good when confronted on those opinions.  If the expected behaviour is that you get upset and mad then you did not perform to your own level.  The fact you keep defending Ben when even he doesn't defend his attitude himself shows more about you then Ben.

I will keep spinning and denying your opinion and you can continue to be the apologist with the bucket full of excuses.  I am more than happy to record that for you.

Certificate of.......comemriteration. Oh, you gotta make that trophy more official by having it come with a certificate to properly comemriterate the athlete.

Plus, he's making the English language better by adding words to it.

That search result will look very different in the coming years.

TLDR.

1. Since the investigation is over Mueller is retiring.

2. He them summerises some of the findings of his report concerning russian interference. The emphasized that the Russians did interfere in the 2016 election.

3.He says that they followed department policy so they did not charge President Trump. He did mention that if he believed that Trump did not commit a crime they would have said so.

4. He said that the report is his testimony and that if he were to speak to congress he would just reedirate what was in the report.

The guy wasn't a US citizen but he was a legal immigrant so this situation is still fucked. But still I doubt anyone higher up in the admin knew about this specific situation. This was probably handled by the officers in the immigration center he stayed at.

Still, the fact that such a thing is even possible to happen is just disgusting. I'm pretty sure they will get out scot-free, while in most countries in Europe, they would have been fired on the spot and face legal troubles for their discriminal behaviors.

At this point Trump could even get away with rape too, because that's how America works for rich white people.

Well I would know, if he started asking legit questions, and continued to ask legit questions. The interviewer had every chance to focus on the book, but he did anything but. How Ben reacts is his problem, not the interviewers. That's how you should know.

Glad you finally admitted it. It's the first step to curing yourself.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Sure he had a chance to focus on the book if the person being asked the questions would have answered them instead of getting upset like a petulant child.  Ben was treated with big boy questions and failed to answer in big boy style.  Instead he got exactly what he dishes out and responded in kind.  Maybe next time he will do better.  He will have his mask on and be ready to perform or he will go back to his echo chamber where everyone agrees with him and he can say the interviewer was unkind to me.

I am more than happy to make you happy.  I will not waste your time with 2 paragraphs of worthless analogies and always give it to you straight whether you agree to it or not.
