First off they are holding those men on immigration charges because after they do that they can ask them about anything......like what connections do you have to terrorist..

Immigration issue. Its not a issue, arizona has instituted its own law which is pretty much a copy of an existing federal law. And when you have gangs coming over the border killing entire families maybe THEN you are allowed to really critisize them.

I dont think its so much the japanese not being able to get a good system in for teaching english (and the culture, which can differ alot depending on the country) so much as the japanese still having problems with the whole "forgein" thing.

Why do the japanese use to hands when passing sometyhing like a credit card?

The rape of Nanjing is a stain on Japans history that will forever stain its people. However the people have moved on and accepted what happened there is no shame for those who have they are absolved for the crime threw there guilt and humility. Its not the people who are the problem but the Government.

While i applaud the decission it also is just stupid. The bill closes off as much area to drilling as it opens. If not more. Politics at its worst.

I think this is less of a problem in american society and many others because there is always more of a tribe mentality. Nerds if you will, jocks, popular kids etc all have there own groups. Plus people are just less interested in fitting in to a nich here. Where as in japan you have...well you have a place if you dont fit in a entire society tries to count you out.

Neo, thats like saying the US had the right to nuke all of the middleast after 911.

The fact is its simple. The Japanese where told they where superior to all others. So they had no remorse in treating there 'lessers' like they did. Its a sad warning of what that type of thinking does to a people.

Souryeki, "Men can become killing machine very easily without showing any remorse, because war is in our nature." Very true and we've had along time to figure out how to harness that energy.

As madverts said how is this an american problem. Infact how is that even related to this.

People will be creatins reguardless of race, birth or power. This was just the effect of cruel people. As an american and a southerner we have ways of dealin with those boys.

ROFLMAO!.....Are you serious i hope that was a joke.

I believe evolution and religion or science and faith have no problem coexisting. The problems come from people who have to small a minds to embrace the unknown or who are to arrogant to accept others faiths.

The bible doesnt say how go created man or how he created life. I prefer the great engineer idea.

Glad they got it repaired. Now hopefully they will get on with being blocked by they particles they might discover in the future who are coming back in time to block there discovery. :P

Try that on for size

Great more taxes on the middle class (though we wont call them that well say there taxes on the SUPER RICH!!!...who happen to be the people who start buinesses and hire people for you know...jobs.)

I remember reading how when medicare was retardedly higher than it was supposed to be.

"In 1965, as Congress considered legislation to establish a national Medicare program, the House Ways and Means Committee estimated that the hospital insurance portion of the program, Part A, would cost about $9 billion annually by 1990.v Actual Part A spending in 1990 was $67 billion. The actuary who provided the original cost estimates acknowledged in 1994 that, even after conservatively discounting for the unexpectedly high inflation rates of the early ‘70s and other factors, “the actual [Part A] experience was 165% higher than the estimate.”

But im sure this time nothing will go wrong. After all they mannaged our finances so well in the past...oh wait.

Just cut the red tape in the health insurance buisness and the prices would fall dramaticaly. Cut the amount people can sue for when a operation has complication (you know the ones the doctors tell you about...over and over and over again?) and the price goes down. This is just stupid and wasteful.

Yes we bow our head to pray...its god its showing respect. And to the dead again respect.

But in our Culture people dont bow to other people. Heck next time you mess up go bow. You'll embaress the person you do it to if hes like most americans.

Im not saying he shouldnt have bowed to the emperor. Just that to alot of americans bow means you submit.

I have respect for the emperor. If i saw him id bow. Why? because id want to show respect. Why is it different. I dont represent 300 million americans. Are some people blowing it out of proportion? yes.

Look to some it means more than others. To me not so much to others alot. Point is you have no reason to get angry for them at not understanding japanese culture when so many non americans dont understand us. Ok?

Well i like to think of it this way. At least it was a allie this time.

We for the most part are a head on culture. When you meet men and now women are expected to shake hands with a good grip and look into the eyes.

Alot of americans dont like the fact that he bowed. To them it doesnt matter if everyone in japan bows to the emperor. To us bowing is something a servant or a person who considers themselves the lesser does.

OK its hard to put into words...but

We bow to no one, no one is our better.Ever.

We like japanese you have accually been one of our best allies. But as much as we respect and like you we will not bow to anyone.

One of the key problems is going to be economical. I dont see how that would be fixed. Maybe yall have welfare like the US. Which if i do say is just a dumb idea why would you pay people not to work?

Another is Jobs. And do you really want to lose all those jobs in this time?

Jeffrey,

I have heard people talk about how we over spend on our defense budget again and again. Its simply not true. Not if you accually want to be able to decide for yourself how you want to run your own country.

The biggest part of our budget is personel. We pay good wages have good healthcare etc. This cost alot of money infact most world militaries could be paided just from our personel cost (listening gov. healthcare people?). Another is that we have defense obligations for our allies around the world. Name the last big naval engagement between countries...now dont include the US. See everyone knows if we side with a country at sea and there not it they lose.

Maybe redistribute the bases maybe just get the personel to straighten up and act right.

I for one hope Japan will again become a real naval power. Which being a island she desperatly needs.

One of the things about todays militaries. All the guns and ships in the world dont mean anything if you cant get them anywhere the US is pretty much the only one able to.
