I don't support this woman, but things are getting out of hand. What are they going to do tear everything down and try to erase all history. Books will be next. Don't forget the pyramids. Built by slave labor. Start marching and protesting about that. Not to mention anything in Japan that is slightly offensive to all those other asian nations. I guess the experiment of "time outs" didn't work. Time to stop indoctrinating the leftist agenda in schools and the media and stop all this craziness. Nothing makes sense anymore.The U.S. and some other nations have lost their collective minds!

• If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

• Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

• It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.

• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

• Inflammatory rhetoric is outrageous, but harassing people in restaurants is virtuous.

• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

• Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

• Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.

• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

• If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

• Criminals are catch-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.

• And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"?! Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility. We are living in an upside down world for sure.

Posted in: Gov't seeks more inclusion in education for foreign children in Japan See in context

We have a bi-racial daughter and recently moved back to Japan after leaving 8 years ago. In 2018 December, we reached out to a local Adachi Ku Junior High and were basically told that this school can't take her because her Japanese wasn't up to par. (as far as reading and writing) Speaking was no problem. She ended up going to a private jr high school and now has been accepted to the quite renowned 東京都立国際高等学校 Tokyo Metropolitan Kokusai High School. Her written Japanese is almost to par now. Point being, they didn't even want to try to help her. With this attitude, you can see where this may cause one not wanting, or unable, to attend school because of finances preventing them from attending a private school.

Posted in: Delivery of 'Abenomasks' starts in 34 remaining prefectures See in context

With all the media focus on the Abe masks, my family has been waiting with anticipation for these to arrive.

Well, looked in the mailbox this week and there was the long awaited envelope sitting in my mailbox. I ran into the house and said excitingly, “THEY ARE HERE, THEY ARE HERE!!” and then my daughter yelled, “let me see!!” “Don’t open it! I want to open it”

We all laughed and I said, “ he could have just sent out a letter on how to make your own”

This is why you need to keep government out of our lives as much as possible.

The government that governs the least, governs the best.

Whose benefitted from making those??

Posted in: As coronavirus infections mount, Japan at last expands testing See in context

The no testing approach was implemented because of the Olympics. J Gov didn’t want to risk their image and possible loss of the Olympics. If they didn’t reveal actual numbers then they could possibly still host and if lucky the outbreak would die out. In the meantime discovering how inadequate the medical community would be able to deal with an outbreak . Well, bad decision and now the consequences. Everyone stay safe and prayers that the world can heal from this.

Next week Japan will take some drastic measures. Stock up for a month or so. You heard it, so don't say I should have, etc. Check back with you in a week and I'll either be a profit or a fool.

Bad idea! People will not benefit immediately from tax cuts. People who are living pay period to pay period will need assistance right away. Just give cash directly to individuals. They are tossing around the idea in other countries. I predict the Japanese government will take some drastic measures next week. Stock up people, because you know what happens when they announce these measures. My prediction..Check back with you next week. Hope Im wrong.

Prediction; Abe will announce some drastic measures next week. Better stock up with food and essentials to last a month or so. This will be a last ditch effort to save the olympics.

The dems are so lost. What I saw was the Democrats not standing up for Americans, but stand up for illegal aliens. They don't have a patriotic bone on their bodies. Until they can find a strong charismatic candidate, they'll keep up their pitiful tactics. I was on the left and voted for Obama, but the far left has forced me and many others to walk away. I woke up.

No group is more enticed by pie-in-the-sky promises of free stuff and redistribution than college students. Someone slap some sense into them! Indoctrination at schools needs to stop. Bernie is not the answer.

Posted in: Japan to send chartered flight to Wuhan to bring back its nationals See in context

Have a Japanese friend there now. He's worried because his prescription meds will run out in 2 weeks. Not to mention he has about that much food as well. He hoping to be able to get on one the flights out. By the way, supposedly the U.S. citizens wanting to hop a flight out have to pay their way(not a discount ticket). How about the Japanese citizens? Will they have to pay? Just curious..

Japanese company workers have to try to be there. Its the culture of not being weak minded. You have to try. The boss will say " I made it here, why couldn't you?" or "You will never be (shachou) if you can't think and give your best no matter the situation. Or the boss will phone the employee and say "I'm here, where are you?" Until that stops, we will see those commuters all lined up and waiting.

Adachi-Ku wasn’t bad, the last Tokyo typhoon seemed much stronger. About the train stations, don’t see the logic of hurry up and wait. You know it’s going to be packed so take your time and tell the boss, I got delayed because of the trains, buses, etc.

Posted in: Writer hopes Japanese step out of 'comfort zone' as society diversifies See in context

I have lived in Japan for more than 20 yrs. Recently returned from the U.S. to Japan after a 7 yr stay there. My friends would say "why are you always talking about how good Japan is?" "You're in the U.S. now." I would respond, "your horizons need to be broadened, the world doesn't end in NY and LA." "It would do the U.S. some good if they could emulate the Japanese." Most Americans have never been out of country and if the have only for 1-2 week vacation. Japanese society is unique and thats the charm. A more diversified Japan= loss of culture, loss of morality, etc. One small example is Kyoto. They have restricted foreigners as to what shops they can own. (diluting the culture, fake products, etc). Or the Japanese business that says "no foreigners" because its driving away Japanese customers. Ask your average French or Belgium citizen on what they truly think of a diversified culture. I say keep Japan, Japan for as long as you can. Once its gone, you won't get it back.

Posted in: Man arrested over threat to kill woman after garbage dispute See in context

Funny ‘Gomi Baba’ trash incident. Recently had a run in with my new neighbor. I recently moved into Adachi-Ku and was taking out a large number of trash bags from my house. Building something so had on some clothes covered with paint. They were about 75 meters away when they spotted me dropping off some trash. They were unloading something from their MERCEDES. Talk about doing a double, triple take. Guess they thought I was a foreign worker trying to put garbage in their designated trash area. OH THE NERVE!! I could see the disgust in their faces even from 75 meters away. Well I dropped it off and covered it with the net and returned home. A couple hours later they show up in my driveway and verbally attack me. “ We have rules around here, and the garbage you dropped off wasn’t picked up! You need to go get it and bring it back to your house!” Granted, it was broken plaster board in 4 different bags and I didn’t know they would not take that. Fine I made a mistake, but they could of approached me with a “sumimasen, are you new here? Hajimashite, etc. and a softer explanation. A few later I ran into ‘gomi baba’, (a new name I’ve blessed her with) and she had the audacity to say that this wasn’t my place to drop off trash. I politely said my mother-in-law told me that this is in fact our designated area. She said I should check to make sure because she didn’t think so, because there was no foreign name on ‘garbage kumiai list’. Well I told me wife and she returned with me to put a Japanese face to it. “ She politely told her, we are on the list and don’t jump to conclusions” Gomi baba tried to save face by explanations of what can be thrown away and on what days by pointing at the sign while explaining. My wife said, I can read Japanese and our name is on your list of “gomi touban” yoroshiku onegaishimasu”. So good thing it didn’t turn out as a ‘trash rage’ incident and you’re reading a JT story of ‘gaijin arrested over garbage trouble’

Posted in: S Korean man sets himself ablaze in protest against Japan See in context

It’s start at home. I had a 23 yr old co-worker tell me she hated Japanese( she is Korean and born & brought up in Hawaii). I asked her, why? She said her grandmother told her so many stories of atrocities during the war. She continues to pass the hate. This may be stereotypical, but most people say the Koreans get angry easily. (Correct me if Im wrong) Need to forgive and move on and take it easy with the anger.
