  1. Taiwanese flight attendants will no longer have to worry about wiping the butt of one obese American passenger after he passed away in Thailand last month. The man, estimated to weigh around 200 kg (440 lbs), made headlines back in January following a press conference in which traumatized female flight attendants from Taiwanese airline Eva Air recalled how he had forced them to pull down his pants while on the toilet and even wipe his butt for him on a flight from Los Angeles to Taipei. Later that month, flight attendants were horrified to learn that the passenger had already booked another Eva Air flight for May that would return him through Taipei from Bangkok. The airline later notified the man’s attorney that they would be canceling that reservation, eventually leading to the discovery that he had died in March on the Thai island of Ko Samui from “an illness.” Eva Air said that it was now working with the man’s family members to refund the cost of the ticket. During the fateful January 19th trip, flight attendants say that the man asked them to help him to the bathroom, explaining that he recently had surgery on his hand. Once inside the toilet, he directed the all-female crew to pull down his pants and tried to insist on leaving the door open while he did his business. Finally, he called on them to come inside and wipe his ass for him, threatening to stay in the bathroom for the entire flight if they would not. Feeling as if she had no choice, one flight attendant put on three layers of surgical gloves and started wiping. As she did so, the man allegedly started moaning in pleasure and encouraging her, “deeper, deeper!” He then claimed that she hadn’t done a good enough job and made her wipe three more times before he was satisfied. Afterward, the flight attendant wrote in an Instagram post that she locked herself inside the bathroom, crying and vomiting, unable to wash away the stench of the man’s shit. In the post, she called on EVA Air to better protect its employees, hire more male flight attendants, and prevent similar physically-challenged passengers from boarding unattended in the future. The later press conference was held by the Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union for these same reasons, arguing that flight attendants work under an unfair culture where they are expected to meet every customer demand, no matter how absurd or demeaning. It was later revealed that the man was actually a frequent Eva Air flyer, traveling with the airline 20 times in the past, with a history of questionable behavior. The airline confirmed that he had also requested flight attendants to wipe his butt during a flight from Taipei to Bangkok in May 2018, but that crew members had refused that request. On other flights, he asked flight attendants to “help clean his urine bottle,” a request which was acceded to “out of the spirit of service” and spilled soda and yogurt on himself during a meal which crew members helped to clean up. Eva Air denied rumors that he had once taken a dump at his seat. https://shanghai.ist/2019/04/18/obese-american-passenger-who-made-taiwanese-flight-attendants-wipe-his-butt-dies-in-thailand/

    Democrats have moved ‘too far to the left,’ says BET network founder Bob Johnson America’s political establishment is riven with partisanship that has become “very wicked and very mean,” said entrepreneur and media mogul Robert Johnson, who added that the Democratic Party has become too liberal for his liking. “The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left,” Johnson, the founder of cable network BET and RLJ Companies business network, told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble Tuesday. “And for that reason, I don’t have a particular candidate (I’m supporting) in the party at this time,” he said. “I think at the end of the day, if a Democrat is going to beat Trump, then that person, he or she, will have to move to the center and you can’t wait too long to do that.” Johnson described himself as a long-time centrist and Democrat. He publicly supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. However, he has since expressed admiration for some of Donald Trump’s policies, particularly those related to the economy. “I think the economy is doing great, and it’s reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employments and the opportunities that come with employment … so African-American unemployment is at its lowest level, ” Johnson said. Johnson became the country’s first African-American billionaire after selling Black Entertainment Television in 2001, according to Forbes. “I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large amount of Americans,” he said. “I think the tax cuts clearly helped stimulate the economy. I think business people have more confidence in the way the economy is going.” Despite the U.S. dispute with China over trade, Johnson said that “overall, if you look at the U.S. economy … you got to give the president an A+ for that.” Johnson expressed concern that there is “really no give or take in terms of trying to come to an understanding of how best to run the country” between President Trump and the Democratic Party. “If business people are concerned about anything, it’s the clear, clear partisan politics that’s become very wicked and very mean. And that’s not helping the American people, and it’s not helping America as a global nation.” Asked about Trump’s style of leadership —considered divisive by many in America and beyond — Johnson remarked that Trump has “got his own style,” though he perhaps needs to “step back a little bit from some of his showmanship.” “A lot of people are not going to like that style,” he said, “but when he says he’s going to try to do something economically, you have to give him credit for taking some specific steps to do that.” “At the end of the day, the American people are looking for someone who can deliver economically and deliver on opportunities,” he said. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/09/democrats-too-far-to-the-left-bet-networks-bob-johnson-says.html

    He was liked well enough when he was a Democrat, before he decided to run for president as a Republican. He was good buddies with Bill Clinton and other top Dems.

    Germany was torn apart by rivalry between the radical left and the radical right. People went with the right. They were fucked whichever one they chose. But Trump is no Hitler, no matter what the Hillaryites claim. Trump has no plans to remake the world. He just wants to make more money. The Democrats, on the other hand, want to get back into power ... and then make more money. 🙄

    Here you go Coss, Jeffrey Frankenstein ... frum USA Today: "On Saturday, Trump biographer Tim O’Brien tweeted this 2002 quote by the future president, taken from a New York Magazine profile: “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” "As part of its explosive investigation into the Epstein case published in November, the Miami Herald listed Clinton as one of his friends and associates, saying the ex-president often flew in Epstein’s plane and visited his island. The Herald also reported that Epstein donated to the Clinton Foundation. "The newspaper said there’s no evidence Trump or Clinton was involved in underage sex activities. "Given Epstein’s list of powerful connections, which also includes Great Britain’s Prince Andrew, Victoria’s Secret owner Les Wexner and high-profile lawyer Alan Dershowitz, revelations that come out of the case have potential to be significant and embarrassing. “There are probably quite a few important people, powerful people, who are sweating it out right now,’’ the Miami Herald’s Julie K. Brown, lead reporter of the November stories, told RealClear Politics. “We'll have to wait and see whether Epstein is going to name names."

    Does he still expect to be ambassador after that? He can think what he wants, but it's not very diplomatic to let it be public. (That's what Wiki Leaks is for.)

    "I know that most of you Trumpanzees believe, that the best, indeed, only response, to something not going your way, is to throw your toys out of the cot ..." You mean like the Democrats trying to block highways etc etc because their candidate didn't win the presidential election?
  17. Travel is truly one of the best things that a person can do – it broadens the mind, fosters empathy with people of all races and cultures and creates memories that last a lifetime. However, travel is a luxury and a privilege that only a fraction of the world's population can afford. So when Western people, with all the privileges we hold, are found 'begpacking' on the streets of developing countries, it can leave a sour taste. Tourism is a vital source of income in many countries; we should travel in such a way that maximizes the benefits for local people and businesses. Sponging off the kindness of strangers to further our own selfish travel goals is just not on! If you can't afford to travel, stay at home until you earn enough money to do it ethically. Authorities in some countries have had enough, and now immigration officers on the Indonesian island of Bali have started sending these 'begpackers' to their embassies to get themselves sorted out. "We have seen many cases of problematic tourists, lately they are either Australian, British or Russian," one official said. "We tend to report these cases to the relevant embassies so that they can oversee their citizens who are on holiday." ...
