Posted in: Japan to compile stricter rules on school bus safety after child's death See in context

Common sense dictates head counts should be done. Schools do this, why wouldn't a day care also do this?

I say so what? Religious freedom applies to elected representatives too.

Bold of you to assume the elected officials are practitioners of this "religion".

How about some spending to ease the wallets of the people in Japan?

I agree with the charges. There are less painful ways of going if they agreed to end their lives together.

Posted in: Ethereum blockchain completes 'monumental' overhaul See in context

I hope that with more validators, transaction costs will decrease. Other PoS blockchains are far cheaper than ETH, but they launched as PoS.

Posted in: Biden urges Western unity on Ukraine at G7 summit See in context

They have to come up with a new name since there are 9 people representing more than 7 countries. It's not G7 anymore.

Posted in: U.S. Supreme Court expands gun rights, with nation divided See in context

Well, since the police won't be able to distinguish good guys with guns from bad guys with guns, they'll take care of the problem by shooting or locking up everyone with guns.

Besides, it's not as bad as NOT giving gravy, like in Japan. Now THAT'S a deal breaker.

AMEN.

I'm glad for my fiber-optics that would cost double or triple in America for the same speeds.

I guess they want a slice of the war profit pie.

Biden can't do anything because the legislative branch of government won't approve a law for him to sign.

He is disconnected from reality if he thought he could wave his hand and make the pandemic under control and mobilize the response to a pandemic going from idle to full throttle in even less time.

Posted in: North Korea confirms 1st COVID outbreak; Kim orders lockdown See in context

I would take this news with a grain of salt, but why even announce their "first COVID-19 case" now when they could keep saying they have a spotless track record?

Posted in: Ruling LDP proposes doubling of defense budget See in context

Do they have the money to increase defense budget? How about doing something about stagnant wages first?

Posted in: Netflix aims to curtail password sharing - and bring in ads See in context

It was inevitable. It's impossible to maintain a business model based on increasing user numbers. First they kept raising the monthly fee. Now they're bringing in ads. At least with Amazon Prime you also get the benefit of faster shipping along with the prime videos with ads.

Posted in: Man blaming Trump's 'orders' for Jan 6 riot actions found guilty See in context

Everyone has a choice. He chose to go to and enter the Capitol building. He can't pass the blame to a third-party for something he did willingly and the jury recognized that.

First amendment doesn't apply to a private company. It only applies to laws made by congress. The words verbatim from https://www.senate.gov/civics/constitution_item/constitution.htm

Amendment I (1791)

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Posted in: Ruling LDP to seek enemy base strike capability See in context

When China aims missiles at New York, Los Angeles, Washington or any other American Big City I don't think the United States do something for Japan maybe they'll say "I'm sorry".

Seems like America is drawing the attention away from Japan in this scenario of yours, which is the point isn't it? Why would America do something for Japan if the missiles are aimed at America? Now, if you said China was aiming missiles at Japanese cities and America was sitting around picking its nose, then I would agree with you. America has the responsibility of protecting Japan under its umbrella until the point there is no longer an American military presence in Japan.

Posted in: Ruling LDP to seek enemy base strike capability See in context

Don't trust America, they will abandon you like they did the Afghans.

You are silly. America has been in Japan longer than it was in Afghanistan. It's also in America's best interests to have a staging area in Asia close to China and North Korea. Unless America pulls out and removes the protective umbrella over Japan, Japan will be just fine.

We'll see what happens to them after 6 months and if they become visa overstayers who have to be locked in a detention facility and ultimately deported.

Posted in: Tokyo stock market revamped in hope of attracting foreign investors See in context

Retail trading has exploded in the US over the past 3-5 years and with that it increases trading volume on the daily, where there is volume there is money to be made, regardless of price going up or down.

It's only exploded because retail investors realized savings accounts are worthless and trading apps made it easily accessible.
