Please stop saying "You can't joke about anything anymore". You can. You can joke about whatever the folk you like. And some people won't like it and they will tell you they don't like it. And then it's up to you whether you give a folk or not. And so on. It's a good system.

Posted in: It's important that China, as an economic superpower, complies with the rules of the international community and fulfills its responsibilities in a way that is fit for a large country for the further development of the global economy. See in context
Why should they, when the largest economy in the world doesn't?

Suzuki-san needs to face reality. It doesn't matter what she considers herself to be, she has a female body, her gender is female. A doctor pointed out something very important on this issue. "I need to know the actual gender of the patient," he said. "A stomachache for a man may be a very different thing than a stomachache for a woman."

Princess Mako diagnosed with PTSD
This condition was apparently brought on by extensive media coverage. So, why does Japan Today choose to make a big headline out of it?

"Leadership," not much hope for that. Puppets don't lead. They do what they are told and say what they are told to say.

Posted in: There are many cases in which foreigners failed to get vaccinated because they threw away vaccination eligibility cards that they were unable to read, or because they could not fill out the pre-vaccination questionnaire. Some hesitate because they are unable to explain their preexisting medical problems during an interview with a doctor. See in context
Well, didn't happen in Nanjo City. Doctors and nurses insisted on speaking English to me in spite of the fact that my Japanese is fluent.

As they are trying to be more international, I wonder why they pronounce their name "jibli?"
"Gh" in English can be silent, as in "throuGH," as "f" as in "rouGH," "j" as in "giant," or the hard "g" in "spaGHetti."
But "gh" is never pronounced "j" in English or Italian.

To a degree, perhaps. There is an appearance of democracy, yet the real leaders are hidden.
But then North Korea is the "People's Democratic Republic of Korea."
I wonder what this word really means ...

I don't see that it matters what puppet takes centre stage. Whether they are male, female or somewhere in between doesn't make any difference. They are puppets and someone is pulling their strings.

They need to stop asking people if they want a "Reggy Bukuro" at checkout. Unless they've got a big handful of items, they don't need one. And if they had to ask for one, a lot of people just wouldn't bother.

Isn't it about time this meaningless situation was brought to an end? How can the guy be called Emperor when everything he says and does is dictated by Kunaicho, the Imperial Household Agency? Time to scrap it, along with the ridiculous dating system, Showa, Heisei, Reiwa. It's far too complicated and impossible to understand what year is being referred to without a chart.

Beat Takeshi is an overrated, unfunny, sick individual who makes decent gangster films, but is an utter failure as a comedian and TV "talent."
But I don't wish violence on anyone.

Wow! I can sleep safely in my futon knowing that Japan is going to cooperate with G7 to prevent Afghanistan from becoming a hotbed of terrorism! (Sarcasm)
Especially after the U.S.A. has gifted the Taliban with even MORE state of the art weaponry!
