The USA needs to base ICBMs throughout Japan, giving the allies an important first strike ability against the Korea's, Russia, China, and any other country in that area that favors communism.

Working together, we can make the world safe for capitalism and democracy.

It would be much easier and save energy to simply adapt; learn to appreciate piles of trash as a thing of beauty, and embrace the debris as an example of human achievement.

Posted in: Smoking: a costly habit in search of a home See in context

Rules against smoking are an affront to personal freedom, what a person does is no ones business but their own, government regulations dictating what a person can or cannot do is totalitarianism, and people have been conditioned into blindly accepting mandates from authoritarians.

Posted in: Movie armorer challenges conviction in fatal shooting of cinematographer by Alec Baldwin See in context

A pistol can be fired by pulling back and releasing the hammer, no trigger action required ! ever hear of fanning a pistol? Baldwins excuse is lame, it is always the shooters responsibility to ensure that the weapon is handles safely. Baldwin is guilty as well.

I believe that it is the sacred duty of all Japanese, including and especially political leaders, to visit and pay homage to those who have sacrificed their lives for Emperor and country.

Every country has some sort of war memorial, this is no different from any other; many countries enshrine veterans who could be considered war criminals.

this must be the first time in history that a corrupt ruling faction has decided to behave in an ethical manner. Usually, it is just window dressing meant to assuage a disgruntled populace and stave off rebellion. Thankfully that is not the case, and the new morality will put an end to bribery, cronyism, nepotism, and other corruption that has been the way of life for generations. Then again, maybe not !

Compared to Singapore Airlines, Southwest and Delta are like riding a beat up bus on a dirt road in a third world country.

Posted in: Lawyers' group urges Tokyo to halt park development, calling its impact review unscientific See in context

In a country with a declining population and a negative birth rate, building new apartments is a total waste. Many residences sit empty and abandoned; the land on which they sit could be returned to nature or used for new construction. Destroying nature in the name of greed runs counter to not only common sense but is anathema to the Japanese spirit of Shintoism.

Posted in: Hiroshima grapples with 'Oppenheimer' Oscars success See in context

Japanese filmmakers need to produce an epic film, showing Hiroshima as it was pre-bombing, suffering from shortages, etc, then the bombing, aftermath, and several different personal stories woven throughout, such as Sasaki Sadako, who made 1000 cranes before dying of the effects at age 12.

cocaine and guns dont mix. and how does a 26 year old woman become proficient enough in firearms to be trusted with such a position? seems like a poor choice, one of many, maybe she was hired for different reasons? lots of guilty parties present, she should not be the only scapegoat ! Ultimately, he who pulled the trigger must accept the final responsibility for this tragedy.

Posted in: City in Saitama Prefecture to require multilingual trash rules posted for foreigners See in context

Japan would be better off requiring fluency in Japanese; it would save money and promote assimilation of foreign workers. Diversity is a failed experiment that leads to social division and caste systems.

Having known several people with Down syndrome has led me to truly believe that our planet would be in better shape with them as world leaders. Honest, incorruptible, a gift to humanity.

the police want an easy solution to the case, so still consider suicide as an easy out.

In the USA, were either incident to happen, outraged parents would be filing lawsuits against the teacher and the school district.

Lame apologies are worthless and only enable continued misbehavior.

blaming a single teacher for the failure of the nation to teach swimming, a basic survival skill, particularly in an island nation, to its youth, is just wrong.

The best way to reduce shipping pollution is to reduce shipping; accomplished by producing goods locally. Globalism only profits the few, allows labor abuse in poor countries, allows companies to bypass environmental regulations and other oversight.

Just 16 container ships produce as much pollution as all the worlds cars.

Posted in: Don’t let ‘FDA-approved’ or ‘patented’ in ads give you a false sense of security See in context

The FDA consists of former lobbyists and other officials of the very food & drug industries allegedly regulated by the FDA. There are no consumer advocates in the FDA, it merely rubber-stamps "approved" on any substance with market potential.

Arms manufacturers are the unseen cause of all the wars in the word, operating behind the scenes to instigate violent incidence that lead to public calls for retribution. It is madness on a global scale, and the planet suffers from the greed of the few.

Posted in: Japan's 'naked men' festival succumbs to aging population See in context

Japan needs to expand these kinds of ceremonies, and not cancel them, to keep cultural traditions alive, as well as to increase the virility of the male population to counter the declining birth rate.

Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution will you find the term "corporate rights."

Amazon should be forced to split up under the Sherman Anti-trust Act.

Besides, Amazon is just a fence for counterfeit goods made by political prisoners of a big communist country .

Committing suicide is an honorable act, the ultimate apology. His last act was an admission of guilt and an apology to all wronged by his acts.

It doesn't matter how the live ammo got there; it is the responsibility of the person wielding the firearm to check it thoroughly to ensure safe handling. Which, apparently, Mr. Baldwin NEGLECTED to do.

Japan should make the offer contingent on cessation of all hostilities by both sides of the conflict, or else money spent on reconstruction could end up being wasted by further destruction.
