This kind of thinking “she overstayed her visa” is nonsense to me. When it is others from poor economies it is law. Do you know humans are curious and adventurous? What would have moved the Europeans to move to Africa in the earlier centuries? Who gave them visa? If Japan don’t want people to overstay their visas they should not give visas anyway. Japan should close all its doors and have nothing to do with the rest of the world and no one will come here.So long as Japan makes strides in economic fortunes others will come and over stay their visas. Humans were not created because of laws rather laws are made because of humans and laws must not enslave us. If the gays and lesbians have rights why not overstayers of visas?

Posted in: Slain ex-PM Abe honored at divisive state funeral See in context

The late PM isn’t my fan. But having served for so long he deserves the honor of a state funeral. It’s not easy being a leader and of a country of more than 120 million people. Even if he had not served for long I still think he deserves it like any other. You may disagree with fine of his political and historical views it shouldn’t cloud our minds to honor him our last…

Posted in: 62.9% of people with foreign roots in Japan questioned by police: survey See in context

My good self has been questioned several times on mere sight of me. At one time they followed me to my apartment and called others with aim of arresting me for not showing them my drivers license. But for wife I wouldn’t have cooperated because they did ask for my license when I couldn’t tell them the owner of a truck parked nearby.It was a long story and I felt outrageous.

North Korea, it will be in your interest to stop insulting dignitaries. An economy and people like Japan cannot be run by “....”, as you have suggested, you’ve gone too low below the belt. It will be better to withdraw and apologize.

The question is is deportation the only option? Why? The straight application of the law without recourse to humanity rights is wicked that have grave repercussions in the years to come. You see why Chinese and the North Koreans still are still unhappy? You will stone for these people who died in your detentions in the name of keying the law.

Humans are not dogs that you can treat anyhow. No one owns anything and we are not here for ever. We all came from somewhere, check historical records.

if gays have tights why not others you claim enter illegally or have over stated their permits?

People who wouldn’t procreate to keep society are considered while those who give births to make society alive are disrespected and kicked out. So this is justice?

Posted in: 'Short skirts cause sexual assaults,' according to Japanese school uniform poster See in context

Which ever way one may look at it, short dress may not necessarily be the cause of groping, it can attract offenders to grope, even though those who are addicted to the habit of groping may do regardless of the dress or skirt being short or long. But why wear a short skirt in public anyway? What for? If you dress with or without intention to seduce why troubled about being groped and why such section of society be dressing in that manner? We must show modest and not dress seductively as a safeguard against groping and also to help the weak not to. We must be each persons keeoer.

Posted in: Japanese lawmaker under fire for LGBT comment See in context

The hypocrisy is others cannot express their feelings about LGBT but those for LGBT can insult those who are oppose to ... The LDP is never out touched with issues, LGBT is not helpful and those engaged such a lifestyle can be helped to come out of it. No one wants to talk about the offer to help but just accept it as human rights, very soon armed robbers and murderers will also ask for the right to rob and kill. It’s not gonna be a nice world.

Posted in: Moon calls for 'heartfelt' apology from Japan over 'comfort women' See in context

And what is.”a heart-felt apology”? For how long will you continue to demand an apology as if you are saints and Japan is evil? Let’s put the past to rest for no apology is heart-felt more than peaceful co-existence. Every country has its bad and evil deeds and it is human. To err is human and to forgive divine.

Your repeated demand for apology every opportunity and year may soon ...
