I hope the parent was not arrested under the new secrecy bill. How did whoever find out the parent was complaining online anyway. How many people does J Govt employee to monitor and report postings.

If the parent raised a kid who can be brainwashed by toilet paper, it sounds like the kid is the one who should be complaining!

Toilet paper?! The SDF is recruiting with toilet paper? This is pathetic. What's the message? Join the SDF and you'll never run out of toilet paper? Might have worked in 1945. Not now. Unless there is something about Shiga-ken we don't know.

With what the government is doing to the economy, all the SDF will have to say in a few years is:

"A roof over your head and 3 meals a day!"

They'll be turning them away at the recruitment office.

It seems absolutely nothing.
