Posted in: New Zealand begins gun buyback after mosque killings See in context

The NRA in the USA has a very strong hold on guns and the laws, most weeks in the US we see a mass murder of some description, The new Zealand government has got a back bone and is banning the ownership of assault type rifles, America, take note it can be done, ref to tightening up firearms laws and the ownership of various weapons.

Some years ago Niigata had a terrible earthquake, Niigata is an area where the famous koi carp are bread, needless to say last time the mud ponds were wrecked and thousands of small and large fish were found dieting in the street after the ponds leaked, I just hope its not happened again as it was a huge blow to there economy.

when you ban people like some people above have suggested, you might be banning someone who is compos mentis and has good reactions, the best answer for this problem should start a few years before, say at the age of 50 Years old, and it should involve a test which includes eye sight, reaction times, a general health inspection and it should be over seen by a doctor. may be this test or check up should be held every 5 years, then the examiner/doctor can see if there is a deterioration in the drivers sight, reaction times, etc. IF it get to a stage where they can't meet the criteria then they should have there licence suspended or revoked, unless it can come back up to a set standard, this will filter out bad drivers at 50 let alown 60+ but it will allow senior people to drive, where fit.

"she didn’t know how to deal with the situation." ok, it sounds like she does not have a partner or husband to help her, May be the education board aught to look at addressing the poor sex education program in schools, it would teach boys and girls to look after them selfs and there new babies.

I can't believe that someone puts a used Condom in side a ladies handbag, how ( expletive ) disgusting is that? send it to a lab get the DNA and then the cops have got it on record to see if there is a pattern or if he's done it before. once they pervs have been caught and been prosecuted I think they they should have a bill board at the end of the platform with there picture on it. that would send a message out to would be pervs that this sort of behaviour won't be tolerated.

@bill, "Good riddance to the useless, stupid woman". its not her fault that there is one big political game being played here, the opposition have been throwing spanners in the works constantly, so it makes them look good, Europe have been doing the same, as to say to any one else  thinks your going to leave, this is the mess your going to be in, this is a message that's been sent out by the leaders in EU parliament, what ever deal she came up with, a bunch of people from the stay in or opposition political brigade said no, so the whole produces started again, trying to get a deal, and when it was presented again and when they could agree with it, Europe said no, back to square one. who ever steps up to the plate will face the same dilemma, "look what I am offering" I can hear them now, nope, its not what I want, so ill vote against it to throw a spanner in the works again, repeat cycle.

A few years ago I was on holiday in north France, and we went to Omaha beach, and one of the vets was there giving his experiences, believe me its a long run up that beach at low tide, so I take my hat off to these guys, as dodging a hail bullets and running up that beach would not be fun, more like terrifying!

Posted in: British PM May quits as party leader, starting succession race See in context

I think that Mrs May was handed a poisoned chalice from the beginning, but she did or try to deliver what, we the British ( by the referendum out come ) decided to do. it was never going to be easy to appease all parties at home and abroad. As for the leadership contest, what a bunch of clowns we've got, Boris "bafoon" Jonson

and the others, jeees no wonder this country is such a mess, I am self employed and I have noticed that work has dropped off dramatically, this is going to be a poor year for me, and its not just me, I've asked at the builders merchants, other contractors, and they say its been a poor year, I think the reason for this is when there is uncertainty in the market, people don't spend money as they are unsure and nervous. there was a local bielection recently and the turn out was very low, people are sick and tired of blinking Brexit, but its what the majority wanted, and the government did as the people voted for, so poor Mrs may is only carrying out orders, I would like to see another referendum and I think that we will vote to stay in.

Posted in: Nintendo takes Mario Kart company to court for 2nd time and wins yet again See in context

After reading the above links to accidents with these carts, it looks like they have had a few bumps and scrapes, 50 if I recall in 11 months, but lets put this into some sort of perspective, how many bumps and scrape have happened with car in the same area over the last past 11 months, if its more than 50, well should we not start thinking about banning cars and trucks? as for waring seat belts and helmets that's a good start and should be made compulsory! then we need to look at the stop and indicator lights to, may be they should be mounted higher for better visibility for car drivers following behind.

Its quite clear what the company was set up to do ( allegedly copy Mario ) it so clear, and it is what they play on, I am surprised that they have been allowed to carry on so long, as for accidents or being dangerous, Is there any evidence of there being any accidents? has there been any road traffic accidents or bumps? with pedestrians or cars/busses? if there has not well they are safe. It looks like that there going to get some more free advertising on J news!!.

Posted in: Schoolgirls chase suspected train groper and get timely assist from tripper See in context

1738kwaaa, "Has she been showing so much cleavage in those school uniforms?" wether she has or has not, no man should be groping children or woman.  

"Am not supporting this perverts actions, but am just curious about What's the story behind this story?" it quite simple the guy is a pervert and he thinks he can get his fun and get from groping children and thinking that it is acceptable or he can get way with it.

As for having short skirts or skimpy blouses, that what girls do, BUT its not a green light for any man to go around groping, touching, or taking unwanted pictures.

IF, or when this guy is charge and prosecuted by the police, they should post a picture up of this perv in the local stations on a board on the platform so all of the locals can see who to look out for. this could deter others from groping other woman and children.

As for the accident of tripping up, "ooop,s sorry" as for ANY sort of prosecution is unforgivable, it happens here in the UK the police are more interested in charging the "helper" or "Good Samaritan" rather than the alleged criminal, the result is people are turning a blind eye to the situation as it become complicated and problematic so the criminal get away with said crime as there is no evidence.

When I first read this article I did laugh, but since reading various article about this syndrome its a very real, I am sure the police get to hear loads and loads of excuses over the years and they would just take it with a pinch of salt, but seriously if this guy knew that he had got their syndrome, should he have been driving?

Does Japan have cameras fitted to the posts so if some one jumped the red stop light, it takes a picture of the number plate and sends them an instant fine and penalises the driving licence?? it would stop a lot of red light jumpers.

Posted in: Trump's red carpet visit gives Japan respite on trade, but pressure stays See in context

I have a few American friends who now tell me that DT plans are starting to have a negative affect on the economy, although products are still coming in from Japan and China, they are now more expensive, DT idea was to stimulate the USA economy so slowing down imports, but it hasn't, people are now paying more for them products, so its starting to inflate the economy as people want more Money to buy these product. large companies are not going to invest millions of dollars in building new plants in the US as they think it could all go tits up when there is a change in the presidency, which means things will go back to normal ie buying more products from China etc, so at the moment companies are not investing in the USA. so it looks like DT idea has not worked.

IF this was a school bus with a driver, I would of thought that a man ( possibly a stranger) getting onto a school bus would seem rather odd, if so why didn't the driver ask to see who he was and why was he on the school bus. I really hope the rest of the children make a fun recovery, this is going to leave some not only physical scars but mental ones to.

All of this pomp and show is way beyond DT comfort/status level my be he would be better off with a bucket of pop corn and Deisny cartoon. but on the other hand if it brings closer working ties and stronger relations between these two magnificent countries, it will be worth it.
