Posted in: Trump attends son's graduation in pause from criminal trial See in context

"Who will explain for me, to my wonderful son, Barron, who is a GREAT Student at a fantastic School, that his Dad will likely not be allowed to attend his Graduation Ceremony," Trump thundered in a social media post.

"Son, I won't be able to attend your graduation because I had unprotetcted sex with a porn star I groomed whilst mommy was at home taking care of baby you and daddy had to pay her lots of illegal money not to talk about it"

You see Donald, it's not that hard.

So which is it....do you think the Czech President / NATO Military Committee Chairman is delusional as Taiwan says or not?

I don't care about your little spat with @Taiwan. I think that adults who believe that Putin was duped into invading Ukraine by nameless Americans aren't in a postion to judge what is delusional.

It's lucky the internet exists because you couldn't actually say that to a person's face without them feeling profoundly embarrassed for you.

Pushed is more like it..

Nope. You claimed he was 'duped' into it by nameless neocons.

I understand it though. If I was feeble minded enough to support Putin I'd probably find a feeble way to blame my dirty little habit on something feeble too.

So you also think the Czech President and ex Chairman of NATO Military Committee who also happens to be one of Ukraine,s staunchest supporters is delusional and wrong but your buddy Taiwan is not.? Riiight...LOL..sure.

You have a good giggle there fella. Did I say that either was right or wrong?

You stay in a hotel, right? Don't they have trash bins there?

True. Unfortunately, there are some people who are nominally adults who feel the urgent need to divest themselves from their trash the moment it becomes trash.

If there isn't a place to dispose of it within seconds they feel that they have the right to make their very minor problem someone elses problem.

They are willing to do this in areas of great beauty to avoid hauling a 10g plastic bottle back to their hotel.

He assumed the Minsk accords would be honored. Remind us who broke them.

Putin, when he invaded Ukraine for the third time and annexed the Donbas.

Oh, did Putin tell you that it's Ukraine's fault? And you believed him again?

MAGA truly is the party of Putin.

My foreign made SUV I drive in Japan gets even less miles per gallon than the Ford truck.

What kind of enormous foreign made SUV is it that you want us to believe that you drive in your very small apartment?

but instead wait until you arrive and THEN cross...those people - they upset me more than just a bit.

Are you mad? Who would ever do that?

Pedestrian crossings are quite dangerous I feel in Japan. Even if one car stops, it's likely that the driver in the opposite lane will just drive through. I just got back from NZ and the levels of consideration and awareness are quite stark. Japanese drivers are atrocious.

Raising your hand like the schoolkids do seems quite effective. Sometimes you have to be a bit ballsy and step out, pretend that you are willing to take the hit. Call their bluff. The 'Nam way.

Required training and re-training every 10 yrs. Annual checks for violence or mental health issues for all gun licensed persons.

I enjoyed reading your post. Seemed pretty sensible.

A quick check shows that there are about 80 million registered gun owners in America. In order for the re-training and yearly checks that you suggested you would need a budget that would probably dwarf that of the military. It's surely unfeasible.

The majority of Americans want action taken to decrease gun violence.

Yes, but they don’t want their civil liberties violated as well.

I'm probably making a huge mistake asking this, but what is your solution? Apart from 'Dems' or 'Marxists' or 'Hmmm'?

Posted in: 'Foreign travelers are Japan’s guests' – Governor against charging tourists more than locals See in context

Yes. Wealthy Japanese should pay more too, IMO.

Fair enough, I appreciate your honesty.

How this can be done in practical terms, I don't know.

Practically, it can't. Imagine a ramen shop where two customers sitting next to each other pay different prices based upon their perceived wealth.

Don't encourage this. A tourist from Thailand should pay the same price as a salaryman, a millionaire or a homeless fellow.

Equality is what makes Japan great. You know this.

Posted in: 'Foreign travelers are Japan’s guests' – Governor against charging tourists more than locals See in context

Yes. It needs to be 100% transparent (via large sign in the entrance) that there is a surcharge for foreigners. The choice is then theirs whether to enter or take their cash elsewhere.

You are encouraging a monumentally huge mistake.

Japan is a booming tourist destination partly based on it's reliability and honesty. If you play these dishonest games based on nationality then it will lose that reputation.

What about my other question? Shouldn't wealthy Japanese customers also pay higher prices based on your reasoning? What about tourists that are less wealthy than the average Japanese?

Posted in: 'Foreign travelers are Japan’s guests' – Governor against charging tourists more than locals See in context

The foreign tourists can make the decision before entering a restaurant, bar or shop. They should then have the option of choosing another establishment with no foreign surcharge.

Do you think establishments should have a sign on the door so gaijin know that they are about to be rinsed based on their nationality?

Foreign tourists are, on average, wealthier than Japanese consumers.

What about wealthy Japanese customers? Make all consumers show bank statements upon purchase, or at least jingle their car keys.

Happens in China, SE Asia and many other nations.

This must have been hard to write. Japan is becoming just like China.

Easy to find. Boris Johnson for a tip. And it's wasn't surrender, it was a peace agreement.

Easy eh. So I’ll ask for the 3rd time.

How was Zelensky compelled or persuaded to not surrender?

Vatniks like to pretend that Ukraine wants to surrender but is not allowed to.

I want to know how they are being prevented from surrendering.

In 2 years none of our Vatniks have been able to answer this.

The same way they got Zelensky to back out of the Minsk 2 agreement.

And how do you imagine they did that?

All the way to the right between the buildings a skinny little staircase with a ramp to the left above the Lawson sign - only wide enough for two at a time

Of all the useless solutions proposed on here this has to be the worst.

Do you have any other wobbly portable ideas? Maybe hand out stilts to the visitors? A wormhole for the cars to pass by?

Posted in: 'Mount Fuji convenience store' issues apology for bad tourist manners, adds multilingual signs See in context

Other countries would capitalize on the situation and put up a toll booth or something like a portable staircase so money and photos could be had

There is talk of doing that. But it would take quite some time and that road is very tight.

This might just be a stopgap measure until the fad fades or they find a permamnent solution.

This screen will have limited effect. People can still take pics if they raise their camera above their heads or use a selfie stick. You'll also get people walking in the road in front of the screen. We'll still be talking about this next month.

Posted in: 'Mount Fuji convenience store' issues apology for bad tourist manners, adds multilingual signs See in context

Is this store not benefiting from the extra customers, though?

Absolutely, they are making a killing. So busy they closed the toilets and removed the hot water pots.

From the report, tourist has already found another Lawson store for taking photos of Mt. Fuji. It is only a 5 min drive from the old one.

They found it many months ago. Locals refer to it as 'Fake Lawson'. It's got a big car park so buses can park there.

All they have to do is tell the touring guides and companies to stop bringing people to that location or better yet close the roads leading to it where only locals are allowed, or relocate the store and make it a tourist spot. or all of the above.

It's not companies bringing them here, they just walk from the station. The rest of your ideas are impractical I'm afraid. The road is a main thoroughfare for every bus that goes to the station.

I beg to differ. Vlad even stated he prefers Biden to Trump.

I don’t stand with Ukraine, never have, never will and definitely not before the U.S.

We know, because you're in the Party of Putin, That's why you support a guy who sells state secrets to him and employs Kremlin agents.
