For the life of me I can’t understand how you can ask ppl to have kids but speak of raising the tax on food in the same breath. Are you really that oblivious to reality?

Dave, I am so glad you can't even imagine being under the kind of pressure that would break someone. That is great. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen. This poor woman was clearly having a breakdown of the most serious kind, but as long as you can't imagine that happening to your privileged self, that is alright then, eh?

In no circumstance does any amount of pressure justify murder.

Been in and out of Japan numerous times during the pandemic. Still not vaccinated. Caught Rona twice since 2020, still alive and well. Loving the weak yen. Having a grand time. Nothing has changed except I couldn’t drink at many establishments I visited for a couple of years. I do wear a mask to conform to social standards in a host nation that has so graciously allowed me to enjoy myself over this time.

Posted in: Woman leaves 3-year-old daughter tied up at home while she goes skiing See in context

This young woman's actions are despicable, disgusting, inhuman... and at 19, a teen parent, she was likely too young to be a parent. HOWEVER we must also ask WHERE was the father? Is he in the child's life at all? Why are women forced to take on this sort of responsibility when the father has NO burden? And the child suffers most of all. Sad.

Im simply bewildered that anyone would consider this woman the victim. In no circumstance does anything justify the abuse of a child. She went skiing ffs.

Posted in: Man gets suspended sentence for causing plane to divert after refusing to wear mask See in context

This guy is a complete jerk. He’s nothing but a worm. Mask debate aside, assault is inexcusable. This doesn’t even take into account that he’s using this as a platform for clout chasing. One look at his Facebook page and you can see his overwhelming sense of self importance from a mile away. The only reason it was probably suspended was to prevent it from adding fuel to his flame. Some people really need to be force fed some humble pie, this guy should get seconds.

Posted in: Okinawa gubernatorial race begins with U.S. base relocation in focus See in context

voiceofokinawaAug. 27  11:43 pm JST

Yubaru,

How in the world do you dare say I am pro-relocation? I am a visceral anti-relocation contender for three reasons:

Firstly, relocating Futenma's function to Henoko with lots of new facilities and functions added won't help the Marines deal with contingencies should they ever occur over the Senkaku Islands.

Secondly, Tokyo and Washington have agreed that JSDF will have a primary responsibility to deal with such events.

Thirdly, the Marines are using Futenma as illegal squatters that have no inherent right to demand a replacement be provided in exchange of its return. The base must be returned unconditionally.

Anyone that is in the know realizes that the infrastructure on Schwab was completed years ago. The only thing remaining to complete is the flight line.

Squatters? Lol, you do realize that it’s also a NATO base as well correct?

Unconditionally? Bruh, both the Okinawa government and the GOJ slapped the table on the deal back in 96.

I can’t take you seriously.

Yubaru is on point within the debate of these comments for the most part.

VoA is basically subjective in context.

After 22 years of living here (the last 9 of which living on local economy). The base issue has been a geopolitical & economical pawn.

Things one must keep clear when discussing the subject in order for your argument to retain any validity:

1 Camp Schwab is NOT a “new base” 2 It is FACT that many protestors are paid, transported, and provided sustenance during gatherings and events. This was the case during the Osprey fiasco as it is now in Henoko and northern trading areas near Yanbaru. 3 Chinas emergence and economical growth over the last 30 years has had an impact on the current situation. With increased revenue stream from land acquisition, jobs provided, and tourist income, the bases are not the only show in town anymore. Ota and Denny both have tapped into this new economic well. 4 The Okinawans in general are just as much in dissent by being shunned by the central GOJ as they are by the military presence. The entire debate could be taken down a few notches if the GOJ would allow for the relocation to another prefecture, but this will NEVER happen. No other prefecture would allow it so Okinawa is stuck in this regard. 5 Refrain from labeling the military as “occupiers”. To do this is to render any argument you present as invalid. They are there at the request of the GOJ, and as an international security measure. The GOJ could send them packing just like the Philippines did. Again, this will NEVER happen. With no valid defense of their own, the Japanese pay for their protection instead of providing it. It’s a large part of why they are a leading developed nation. 6 Just stop with all this “Declare Ryuku independence” nonsense. Anyone with half a brain will not be able to take you seriously or entertain any debate with you. It’s impossible for the island to do so.

While there are other parameters involved, these are the big ones.

Abe's killer will not go down history only as a murderer and the life he took. But also as the guy who opened Pandora's box.

Honestly the guy won. He’s getting exactly what he was aiming for. Scrutiny on a massive scale on the institute that he was targeting. Killing Abe arguably brought more attention to the cult than if he would have killed its leader. Had the leader of the church been a victim, this wouldn’t be news today.

A polar bear is white, but it’s skin is black. We could debate this all day. Common sense isn’t always a common virtue. While outside in extreme heat my mask is down but if I pass near someone, I pull it up as a curtesy. Work, don’t work is irrelevant. I am a foreigner, therefore, I play the game. When in Rome I guess.

Fine, but congress doesn’t make foreign policy. The Administrative branch does.

Administrative branch? Exactly what is this magical branch? Last time I checked there was the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches.

You can’t be expected to be taken seriously when you can’t even debate at an elementary school level.

Take your masks off!

Some people just follow like sheep.

Sheep are the fools who don't follow science.

I think some here thought I meant to not wear masks at all. Not what I meant.

Take your masks off 'when outside and not in close conversation with others.'

See the link I gave to governmental guidelines (next down post).

I wear a mask all day at school, in public places inside and outside when in close proximity to others.

In my car, places with no other people, outside not in close proximity to others: no mask!

But it’s ok while standing in a mist while the virus is spread by vapor? (Scratches head)

If you are not on medication, you should consider it. And this is not off-topic or impolite. This kind of statement is unhinged lunacy and could be deemed evidence of a mental break.

The same could be said for half the replies here. Arm chair quarterbacks that don’t know their head from their …. especially on matters of the US military in Japan.

Look, ignorance = lack or absence of knowledge. Stupidity = having knowledge but ignoring it.

The Regan was in the Philippines. It’s Home port is Yokosuka. The path back and forth takes it through the area all the freaking time.

It was in the area before Pelo even left the US ffs.

To get all riled up about this is like getting triggered because the mail man delivered mail on a Wednesday.

Of course the media would take this coincidence and make it something it’s not, and of course a majority of sheep eat it like it’s a bloody soy patch.

haha. I am no fan of Pelosi far from it. but I gotta give credit where credit is due. She’s got a bigger set of brass ones than Biden does. It’s either one of two things. She felt like she had to finally do something in her career, or she’s truly as ignorant as I’ve always thought she was. Either way, bravo ma’am, well played.
