A kind gesture with an 'excuse me' said makes yours and other's ride more enjoyable.

All it takes is a little common courtesy.

Is there something I'm missing as to why people feel the need to kill their children then suicide?

How do you kill innocent children?

Now that land has increased in value in this world, we know that Russia will not give that land. Only in the unfortunate event of another war could it be taken back, if at all. For it was during war that it was taken. Diplomacy shouldn't give up, though.

Holy smokes, that punch in the stomach should be a wake call for both the doctor and the patient. 15 times in the ambulance this year means the guy is either lonely, or wants some friends that will help him.

This goes deeper than just a smart phone being taken away. It speaks of where they were as a relationship of step mother and daughter.

Posted in: Would you like to see Japan take in asylum-seekers from the Middle East to help alleviate the crisis in Europe? See in context

Now, I wish to detract my previous post. The migrant issue is not 100% of the U.S.'s problem, since the countries involved are mostly from Europe. Why don't they step up militarily in order to make a more stable country from which the people flee?

I haven't read the previous posts, so please bear that in mind.

That spoken there is a theory that if Obama had been more aggressive militarily, that the conflict might not have grown to the size it has. That would mean less refugees going abroad for safety. But plz do make your own conclusion, mine may need more information in order to change what I've stated.

Posted in: Camerawoman in Hungary fired for kicking, tripping migrants See in context

I have never seen so much hate. I didn't read anywhere in the article that it was a Fox News reporter. Show ONE example from a video where Fox News reporter has done this. And the articled DID say that she was FIRED.

What... liberals can't practice what they preach?(which is tolerance. ANY opinion that differs from theirs, and it becomes 'bigotry' or 'hate' or 'racist'. ). They don't understand that people have a different view is allowed, other than their own. It doesn't always line up with the conservative thinking either. I had to explain that b/c liberals are unable to do so.

Let the negative marks come, it only shows the true liberal heart. You people are not always right, please try to understand that, instead crying for your own way until you get it.

Posted in: Fed-up and angry Republicans let Trump defy political gravity See in context

Trump will win, and the greedy party lined people will smear, hate and demonstrate the like in any way they can. Democrats, Republicans etc... Need to grow up.

I'm not a favorite of Trump, but it seems he is breaking both parties traditional routine of ruling the country for their party, and not for the people.

I'll bet you that hardly any of you have read the constitution, and could care less if you did or not, seeing some of the posts I've read. Your lack of 'taking time to read' is showing.

Here is an article where JOE BIDEN reassures Abe about the U.S. spying on Japan. You think within the box, these political elite do not.

I usually drink Pocari Sweat when out and about in the hottest times of the year. I also use a bit more salt from time to time. If the USA had a good sports drink, I would boast about it. But hey, Gatorade? High fructose corn syrup was in Gatorade where I would buy it. Sometimes the ingredients label had a different type of sugar, but Japan has it beat with Pocari Sweat. I'm a believer!

I've had years of training from the military about keeping hyrdated.

Too much water can flush out the electrolytes from your body, which can be harmful.

Ha, I thought that to be the case.

All with the approval of the president. I wonder if other countries' citizens ever think of that.

They all think so highly of him, but he spies on their country to gain financial gain, and prowess.

I'm independent btw, NOT a republican.

Posted in: Old and tired, some Japan farmers see trade pact jolt as only answer See in context

With the population in decline, why not make families tax exempt with 2 or more children. That would encourage marriage, more babies, and then the farmers would be back in demand within a short time.

If not tax exempt, then a tier for however many children you have. 1 = 30% tax reduction, 2 = 50% and so on.

Just an idea, but hey I'm no economist.

Isn't 4 years old a little early to leave your child alone? I assume the child was alone.

Either way, that is terrible that one should lose their child.

Posted in: China warns Japan against 'crippling regional peace' See in context

“It is fully justified to ask if Japan is going to give up its exclusively defense-oriented policy”

Haha, I love arriving to work and starting off with a good laugh. Such simpletons in their grasp for power.

Do they really think that building more islands, and bullying other countries from their territories that they themselves did not spark off their own arms race in the region? Instability, HAHA.

"If passed, the bill will “tarnish the reputation of a nation that has earned international respect for its pacifist Constitution over a period of nearly seven decades”, it said.

Wow, so now they actually admit their respect-well....maybe-for Japan's pacifism, but yet they are a bully nation that has displayed brute strength and verbal threats to other world powers. They themselves cannot 'do the right thing' by becoming a pacifist nation, but instead choosing to be intimidating and bullying for land and territory.

Japan has no other choice in such a situation of hostility. I feel that Japan has the right to build up, and if need be, take it to other parts of the world if need be.

Posted in: Muslims in Japan observe Ramadan See in context

Muslim news is sorta old, and I'm not a fan of the new spotlight they have.

Why the preferential story coverage?

The only reason I can think of is Japan trying ( and doing) a non-aggressive stance from a religion that has been hostile against them.
