... actually was a loaded question, a question which had underlying motives which were made clear to me in the car while we were on our way. I was to be my daughter's secret weapon against the women at the salon. How could I be a secret weapon y'all might be asking. Well, I spent many years in South Korea, Japan, and in the Philippines. You cannot spend time in these countries without learning some of the language spoken. Which I learned how to speak all three, understand all three, and I could write what I needed to in all three. Now a days, I have to be listening pretty close to what is being... (more)

Lost in the Well of Souls

By Anastasia , published on May 31, 2011

...Tribunal. And the guard does march up and down under the flag of the Rising Sun. Though never particularly generous in life to those who served with them – by force – the Japanese are generous in death; for the souls who have been ‘annexed’ include those of 21,000 Taiwanese and 28,000 Koreans, once colonial subjects of the Japanese Empire. They are there in this militarist Shinto paradise whether they like it or not. Kim Hee Jong, of Korean nationality, does not like it. Kim Hee Jong hates it so much that he began a court action in Tokyo to reclaim his soul. What? But how can the... (more)

Hooray for Arizona!

... (and I mean ANYONE) who violates those borders. The only reason illegal aliens are in America is because we are the only nation in the world stupid enough to not do anything about illegal aliens. Go try to sneak into Mexico illegally and see what happens to you. Same with Russia, China, North Korea; I dare ANY thumb-sucking progressive liberal to try to sneak into any country without the proper paperwork and see what happens to you. I’ll lay even money that we never hear from your sorry, miserable, thumb-sucking @$$ again. But you can bet there will be crybabies over her whining to... (more)

Early Marriage High Horse, Healthcare Informants, & Not About Philosophy

By FMeekins, published on Aug 10, 2009

... good citizen, she has been labeled a racist and received various threats. At least the policeman is permitted to carry a gun and pepper spray. At her press conference, she should have made it clear that this would be the last time she ever lifts a finger for anyone in her COMMUNITY.

North Korea has executed a mother of three for distributing Bibles. Perhaps Bill Clinton should have made a bigger fuss over this incident than the imprisoned journalists who did, it must be remembered, violated the borders of a sovereign nation. Multiculturalists often point out how much America has to... (more)

Racism Re-packaged And Re-branded

By Lumiere, published on Jun 24, 2009

...and export of food, food production, food guidelines, legally toxifying and industrializing food would just make people sick, by naturally compromising their immune system. No nutrition, no immunity to diseases or viruses. Just take a look at Kim Jong II and his method of food control in North Korea. The man just loves to starve his own people. Then they get sick, and big pharma andhis corrupt government can make millions. Sounds just like a bad sci-fi movie. The question is why? Well I was about to findmy missing piece of the puzzleas we left church and stumbled upon a free, touring... (more)

By Ed Attanasio, published on Feb 5, 2009

...lose your job or can’t make the payments for whatever reason, simply return it Can't make the payments on that new Hyundai you just bought? No problem -- just return it free of charge.

That's the deal offered by Hyundai Motor America. In a bid to woo skittish consumers, the South Korea-based automaker will cover the depreciation on a returned leased or financed car for those who find themselves unable to make car payments.

Deadbeats need not apply, however. The "Hyundai Assurance Program" only applies to customers stricken by misfortune outside of their control, such ... (more)

... a condition in battle where the human nervous system cannot take any more input...during World War I it was called ‘shell shock’. Almost sounds like the guns themselves. In World War II the same condition was called ‘battle fatigue’. A little softer and not as harsh. In Korea, the very same condition became known as ‘operation exhaustion’. Now we’re up to eight syllables and the humanity is almost completely gone. By the time we got to Vietnam, the condition was called ‘post-traumatic stress disorder. Still eight syllables, but we’ve ... (more)
