The assassination of Inejiro Asanuma by 17 year-old Otoya Yamaguchi, 1960.
While Asanuma spoke from the lectern at Tokyo’s Hibiya Hall, Yamaguchi rushed onstage and ran his wakizashi through Asanuma’s abdomen, killing him. Japanese television company NHK was video recording the debate for later transmission and the tape of Asanuma’s assassination was shown many times to millions of viewers.
Thought I don’t advocate murder if it wasn’t for this 17 year old monarchist Japan would be a communist shit hole right about now.
I do and I’m glad he did
Shit went clean into him.
God damn. This puts R. Budd Dwyer to shame.
Interesting. I remember seeing the famous photo as a kid in some old book and forgot about it until now.

Almost done with the first season on netflix.
Take some of the class of Downton Abbey add mix in a serial killer and a healthy dose of Spanish temper. At night the knives come out, a big change from the innocence of the UK period pieces.
But the scariest bits are not the men with their knives or revolvers, but the women. Belen is a viper of a woman, but the object her affections is the son of easily the craftiest woman I’ve seen in a TV series, Ángela Salinas, head of the chamerbermaids. Dona Teresa comes in at a close third if only because I haven’t watched enough to catch onto her grand schemes.
My mother is far removed from any Spanish culture, but her father’s family was from an isolated Spanish community so she looks the same and has a similar temper, with a few of the scenes hitting a bit close to home. Mind you this is European Spanish, not the friendlier Latino American Spanish. An entirely different animal.
Sex workers are human beings…. from cam models to strippers to porn stars. It may not be your cup o’ tea (mmm, tea), but it doesn’t give you the right to disrespect or shame them.
Reblogging this again because people think that just because someone is a sex worker, means that they are not intelligent, can’t have normal lives, and treat them like complete shit.
Eh…I’d go 50/50 here. I’m a long time listener of the Sex Squad podcast put on by the Jaydens where they interview sex workers while being porn actresses themselves.
And frankly, a sex worker can be a normal human being with a normal life, but plenty of them are drugged up clueless people (men and women). They get burned out and used up in a year or two and are never heard from again in the porn industry. Then you have people like the Jaydens or LIsa Ann. People who build a brand, work their own hours, take pride in their work, have standards, and are developed outside of the industry. Unfortunately they seem to be in the minority. Just like any other entertainment area like amateur musicians or actors, a few good ones get their shit straight while the vast majority screw up big time and self-destruct.
And I’m also very curious why there aren’t any guys shown here…
Contrary to what you see in porn with a mostly hidden male, they have hopes and dreams too. Not just muscular guys with big dicks. Many of them have girlfriends too.
Yeap, been there buddy with the self-deprecating humor that gets taken seriously. “Love Fiction”.
I’m sorry, but no. Just no. It was disrespectful on the US soldiers’ part but it is not the same. Those Muslims they are pissing on were described as “Taliban soldiers”. It was a gun battle.It had NOTHING to do with religion and everything to do with trying to blow each other away.
Now if that Iman was in Iraq or Afstan cleric I could say nice, he’s willing to forgive his enemies. But he’s not, he’s an American praying for a dead American. And chances are the dead guy was a Muslim American soldier.
That moment when your group of friends decide to stay together for a group trip in a hotel that has a known history of bedbug infestations (from 2007 - present) and you don’t want to be the annoying guy who forces the group to cancel and change hotels a month before the trip.
I just hate bedbugs. Yes I’m a big physically imposing guy, but I do not like being eating alive in my sleep and possibly taking the critters home.
And I’m already catching enough flack for saying I’d take a rollout bed/cot over sharing a bed with one of the women in the group. It’s not that I’m gay (and there is a gay guy in group who offered to let me sleep with him), it’s that I don’t like curling up to a stranger I have no interest in.
After being ridiculed by the group for being a puritan, I turned to my female friends who weren’t part of the group. Most of them told me to man up and get laid.
Which is sort of the whole point. We’re supposed to sleep together, not “sleep” together. This isn’t an invitation for free sex from the group’s women. If I’m in a woman’s bed, it isn’t to cuddle up and sleep together as platonic friends. So I just told everyone I’d take the cot.
But I already pledged my money and since I hate going back on my word I guess I’ll have to find the group a new hotel that is cleaner but the same price.
Yes, I know it isn’t a huge problem in life, I just don’t like being the guy who has to speak up and point out the obvious issues of having single men and women sleeping in the same beds for several days and dealing with bedbugs. I know I’m uptight, but come on.
And a friend of mine asked me to compile of list of “awesome things” about summer. Random Cali gal, I know.
So while I’m thinking about those Manila gals, here’s a few.
1. Clothes. Women wear less, and since they do it as a group they seem to be more confident about it. Which is a winning combination. As for us guys, wearing a tshirt, flipflops, and loose shorts doesn’t make us bums - it’s normal!
2. Sweat. As someone who could sweat in the Atlantic ocean while the Titanic went down if a pretty gal smiled at me, I appreciate the greater acceptance of sweating in this season.
3. More fruit and fresh foods. Now I’m not sure if this is truly related to summer, but I seem to eat a more balanced diet.
4. A second New Years when summer is starting. People go on and on about their resolutions but come guys, the grey spring weather isn’t conducive to optimistic thinking. I’ve found that my summer resolutions tend to turn out better (but that might be because it involves a beach).
5. Vacation season and school is out. People stop asking why you aren’t working so much. Which is nice for an unemployed guy such as myself.
