Posted in: Most human embryos naturally die after conception – restrictive abortion laws fail to take this embryo loss into account See in context

Yes it is. As an American especially, I know this. This is a matter only US voters can understand thoroughly.

No one can understand the nuances of the American voters just by watching FOX, or CNN, MSNBC or whatever.

Because obvious to Americans, that figure does not represent the reality.

Then, as an American you know that like it or not, others do make decisions concerning your body.

painkiller what's up with your "American" rant??

I'm American as well but I do not agree with what you say.

Don't try to represent your opinions as those of all Americans.

Maybe try Republican? or Trump supporter?

As a woman, I DO NOT want others to make decisions concerning my body.

If I don't want it and you make me have it, please be prepared to raise it too!!

I can't stand the idea that old men that never have to be in that position get to make

these decisions.

What if I were raped?

What if there was a genetic problem?

What if my life was on the line?

Its my life and my decision!

Posted in: Many cars do not stop at crosswalks in Japan, although they are required by law to do so. Why do you think that drivers don't stop? See in context

It's because there are crosswalks everywhere and if

we had to stop at each and every one the traffic would

be worse than now!!

Posted in: Chiba gov't workers punished for leaving work two minutes early See in context

Most Japanese companies still rate workers according to time and not

what is accomplished! (My company as well).

My boss is a 課長 that got there because of the number of years and

overtime he has worked there and not because of what he's accomplished.

He doesn't know what he's doing so I'm doing his work for him and he makes more

than twice what I do. And this happens every time the 課長changes.

I'm at the age where if I quit it would be hard to find another job so I put up

with it but I can't wait for the day when I quit and the branch ends up in shambles. LOL

Posted in: Democrats plan impeachment; Twitter deletes Trump's account See in context

I think the worst punishment for him at this point

is to have to endure the rest of the presidency with

no access to Twitter.

We all know he will be indicted for various crimes

once he leaves office.

Good riddance!!

You never fulfilled any other presidential duties

But I bet you'll be glued to the TV and be sulking

Or if you're America telling Britain they have to give you a non-American citizen who is somehow subject to American law...

Or like Japan telling Lebanon to hand over Ghosn. ;-)

Or like Trump making China sell Tik Tok?? LOL

Posted in: Trump urges healing and pledges smooth transition of power See in context

He said he was going to march with them to the Capitol

then went back to the WH, where he encouraged them on

twitter, said he loves them and now he's criticizing the actions

he endorsed and acts like he had no part of it.

How do his supporters feel now?

He had you do his dirty work w/o getting his own hands

dirty and since it didn't work out the way he wanted he's throwing

you all away like yesterdays garbage.

Typical Trump!!

But why can't these folks see through this??

I was expecting this to happen but actually seeing it

Posted in: 4 dead after Trump supporters storm U.S. Capitol, forcing Senate to evacuate See in context

They should arrest all of them and thrown them in

jail so when Trump comes in he will get a good welcome.

And look almost none of them are wearing masks...

Posted in: Coronavirus aid at risk as U.S. lawmakers block Trump's changes See in context

I should have know better but I was hoping he wouldn't stoop this low.

Pardoning relatives & war criminals, vetoing the bill many need, saying he had many meeting

and calls during his time in Florida then arriving at the gold course first thing in the morning...

all while thousands die each day.

Has he no conscious at all???

Of course his followers will come up with another excuse as always.

God help America!

In my city we had a cluster and I had played volleyball with 5

people who worked at that office. They eventually tested

negative but being a "close contact" I got to take off work 2

days until their results came back.

Posted in: Biden calls for healing in appeal to Trump voters See in context

Woke up this morning saw the news and felt total relief

the dictator was being thrown out.

Although I will admit I may miss the shenanigans and

hilarious lies that so entertained me for 4 years.

Let the healing being!!

Posted in: Survey finds only 23% of vehicles stop for pedestrians at crosswalks See in context

I think its because there are crosswalks everywhere!!

With industrial areas, houses and alleys all clustered together

if you stopped for all pedestrians at the crosswalks traffic would be worse

than now.

Well done Mr T for talking common sense. There is no need to ruin the economy and send millions of hard working people into depression for a virus with a survival rate of 99.6%.

What about the millions who survive COVID but have lingering effects that affect

quality of life??

But if not, hey, life goes on. At least I wont have to listen to 4 more years of made up liberal attacks on Trump, he can let Harris take over for Biden then run again in 2024.

Up until now its been we will win! win! win! We wont lose to Biden.

Now, it looks like you're preparing to lose, just like Trump.

an expert Pannel disbanded

And if you were up to date you'd know

that a new panel was formed with some new

and keeping the economy going.

Posted in: Some people argue that mandating anyone to wear face masks during the pandemic is a violation of human rights. Do you agree? See in context

Think of the virus as a STD and a condom as a mask.

Basically the same...It protects both of the parties from disease,

unwanted pregnancy but its not 100%. Sure its not as good as no

condom but is it worth the risk??

Obviously he tweeted it before watching the whole clip and noticing the stupid white power remark at the end.

Well then do you admit he saw the white power rant at 8 seconds into the video??

I don't know where you live but where I live, there is brown rice, organic,

varieties of potatoes...

I can get organic artichokes, swiss chard, rhubarbs, all kinds of potatoes...cheap!

It depends on where you live!

Just because your area doesn't have it doesn't mean its not available in Japan.

Posted in: Half-Japanese woman hands card to people who ask tiresome questions about her race See in context

I am "half" Japanese and "half" American.

Born in Japan, raised in the States and came back.

When I lived in the States I was treated as an Asian and

never felt accepted. When I came back to Japan I was

treated as an American and never felt accepted.

For the longest time I had issues of not belonging to

either culture but I aged and learned to speak Japanese

fluently and now I just use being "half" to my advantage.

When I get stopped for a traffic offense, I can't speak Japanese (笑)

When salesmen come to the house I can't speak Japanese(笑)

And when I'm approached by a hostile gaijin I can't speak English.
