Abe promises

You can stop reading right about here...

the government will take steps under a special law to fully support people living in areas affected by Typhoon Hagibis.

You need a special law for that?

Total BS, just like Fukushima.... people are still living in temp housing.

exactly. more than 8 years later.. people should take his words not with a pinch of salt but with the whole damn salt mine.

Posted in: What's wrong with having a mother complex? See in context

My own mother passed away two years ago in Florida and we were not able to be there for her.

I too am very sorry for your loss. But both our wives had a great relationship with their mothers in law. We can take that away I guess.

If China is going to pull this crap then lets just have a global ban on their products. The free world needs to work together to destroy this disgusting regime with its Winnie the Pooh leader

Posted in: What's wrong with having a mother complex? See in context

My mother passed away 2 weeks ago today from brain cancer. I took my wife and kids to my aunt's in Vancouver where she was staying and for 7 weeks all we did was visit my invalid mother every day and spent as much time with her as we could. My brothers did the same. None of us have a mother complex. We just loved her and appreciated her. That time spent with her made her passing a lot easier to deal with.

We have to be careful in differenciating between those who respect and love their mothers and those who are simply spoiled brats.

Posted in: Cabinet minister visits Yasukuni shrine See in context

I'd rather like to see this dude with the flag to help the needed ones, now suffering as victims of that typhoon passed by that region...Where is the good image of this picture while the other pictures are most people fighting to live normal life again after the that enormous disasters around.

You're mistakening him for someone who truly cares about Japan. This is political BS.

I wonder why they can't visit the shrine without making a big announcement to the press. Then again, I guess they WANT the voting public to know.

Of course. This is about stoking a reaction from the neighbors which in turn gets the Japanese fired up and these idiots reelected.

It's always entertaining to watch some fat ugly dudes playing the tough guys. Lol.

Or the short skinny runts..

Repugnant. Visit the national cemetery to pay your respects.

> How hysterical would Japanese people be if American politicians visited the Peace Memorial in Hiroshima and waved American flags?

Now THAT'S an idea! Everyone, start writing to your local congressman (woman) back home

Lol, maybe I’m just desensitized to mannequins and other human likenesses from my father who would hang his uniform on a mannequin because it “preserved the shape” better. Then later from the designer neighbor I mentioned earlier, who’s mannequins were visible through the lace curtains all the time.

Nah bro its all good. Do you remember that Twilight Zone episode about the lady who gets trapped in a mall only to have the mannequins surround her and the twist is she finds out she's one of them at the end? I think that really turned me off mannequins as a kid. LOL!

As for how, its because it actually looks more realistic than most mannequins

How? My neighbor was a hat and clothing designer and had multiple mannequin heads and busts. And yes, sometimes she threw out the old ones in the common garbage dump. If that creeps you out, stay away from PARCO.

I do stay away from PARCO

The question is how much cooler is Sapporo than Tokyo? I distinctly remember a few days last year when Sapporo was hotter than Naha. It was in the news.

Nagano got it in the neck. The birth place of my wife. Those Shinkansen trains shown flooded cost about $30 billion each.

Yeah I just read that. Sorry to hear that my friend.

Posted in: Abe promises action after 2 homeless men denied typhoon refuge See in context

doesn't give a crap anyway Yubaru.... just more two-faced empty words.... tatemae rules! Abe and Japan certainly don't have a monopoly on that though.

VERY true!!

Well if the government local and national in the 3rd largest economy in the world can't provide shelter in normal times it's a streach to expect them to provide shelter in times of disaster.

Good point

How many promises he made so far?


So, he will make the mayor take a deep bow and apologise. End of action.

If that...

Posted in: 19-year-old woman arrested for abandoning corpse of newborn son See in context

You know, I was shocked by the frequency of these kinds of deaths when I first came to Japan. Babies being put in the trash, boxes, wardrobes and train lockers or just cast onto a riverbank. However, after nearly two decades living in Japan it no longer shocks me. Of course it disgusts me, but my only comment is, "Another one?" These women have many options, but the stresses of the society will not allow them to break the 'wa' and take the appropriate action. Disgusting!

I agree.

If China is going to continue bullying companies that criticize it then we need to support more sanctions and trade wars against it. Bullies only wake up when they have a bloody nose.
