This project sounds excellent for domestic use and could develop into a large export industry perhaps in future decades.

Posted in: North Koreans survive by paying bribes: U.N. report See in context

Bribes are the way of life in mainland Asia, for Korea, Viet Nam or China. South Viet Nam was trying to eliminate this and change the culture when the north took over. South Korea is not nearly as bad as the north.

Posted in: Trump expects Japan's military to reinforce U.S. in Asia and beyond See in context

Japan needs more military capability to counter any move by Russia or China. Russia grabbed Japanese territory a few weeks after the war. Taiwan supports more Japanese military to counter the mainland. As for supporting the US military, transport and logistics are a big item that Japan can do without a change in their constitution. MacArthur really messed up that section of the constitution when he didn't give his group writing it even a month to do the job. Also the Emperor should have some political power within the current structure. I can see a time frame before allowing any rebuild, but it cannot be permanent. Constitutional Monarchies are more stable then most other forms of government. Now it's more important than ever and the Philippines needs the same, but can't afford it because of the ongoing Muslim insurrection.

Trump didn't put out hate speech, he made Iran a promise if they attack America.

Posted in: Alyssa Milano calls for sex strike; ignites social media See in context

Alyssa Milano always has an agenda. Her political views are usually not very smart and you notice she doesn't have children so where is her stake in the argument. Seems like she hasn't had enough sex to get pregnant.

The liberals support partial birth abortion, which means murdering the child as it is born. No abortions after 12 weeks should be the law.

Posted in: U.S. House panel chairman gives IRS April 23 deadline on Trump taxes See in context

Tax files are personal and private information. They should not be accessed unless evidence of wrong doing is found when they are processed. The laws on this are strict, even though the Democrats are broken them in the past. The Democrats are trying to get around privacy laws and go on another fishing expedition against the president and his family. They want to waste millions more of the tax payers money trying to harass Trump.

Posted in: After mosque attacks, New Zealand quickly bans assault weapons See in context

There were no so called assault weapons involved, there were semi auto rifles. An Assault weapon is a machine gun and are outlawed everywhere except for military and police. Anti gun people use the term to make semi auto rifles sound more menacing. Anyplace guns are outlawed the crime rate is higher. Except for some large Democrat run cities like New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Washington, D.C., and especially Chicago in the USA the crime rates are very low compared to most countries. Those are areas where most citizens are not armed to protect themselves.

Bullying is more prevalent in the USA and students must fight to push against it. I had many fights after school when I was in 5th to 8th grade.

The children should not be under the desks at school. It's safer to lay on the floor between the desks and has been tested in California earthquakes. It will save lives when the desks get squashed but still stop debris from hitting kids.

Posted in: 3 dead, including gunman in shooting at video game tournament in Florida See in context

Many states do not allow open carry of firearms, but it makes no difference. The shooters all are liberal left winger Democrats or associated with the Democrats. Quit trying to blame the NRA, etc. who are the biggest gun safety organization in America. You don't see NRA members doing any shooting.

Posted in: Gunman angry at Maryland newspaper kills five in targeted attack See in context

You idiots against the NRA don't seem to know that the NRA has more gun safety programs than any other organization in the world. They start with young children being taught to not touch guns (Eddie Eagle) and call an adult to report any found. They are instrumental in helping the military and police set up marksmanship and training programs like the CMP. The problem is with the Democrats and liberals who do all the shooting and killing.

Posted in: Gunman angry at Maryland newspaper kills five in targeted attack See in context

The news in the US is that two were killed and 3 wounded. The police got him and had to use computer facial recognition to identify the shooter as he damaged his fingers to avoid ID fingerprints. He seems to have used a shotgun.

Posted in: Trump says date, place set for N Korea summit See in context

With the gun control controversy it ignores the facts that all the shooters are Democrats, liberals, or related to them. The same seems to be true of many vehicle related events. Perhaps the answer is to reject all Democrats and liberals from purchasing firearms.

Posted in: Japan's high school English proficiency falls short of gov't targets See in context

I taught ESL in South Korea and coached my now ex Japanese wife (from a good Hiroshima school) for years. Have those students watch American and British TV and read English language newspapers as well as having conversations in English. It may help bring their levels up. It took my wife many years to achieve good proficiency.

Posted in: 'No more' or we vote you out: Students lead huge U.S. anti-gun rallies See in context

Students are being organized by communists and other socialist groups supported by George Soros and his faction to gain power and leave the general US population helpless to defend themselves. Actually there are not very many incidents compared to the overall population and the incidents in other countries. Now they want to stop police from trying to defend them. The US Supreme Court ruled many years ago that the police have no inherit requirement to protect individuals, just to keep the peace at large. The students are disrupting large segments of the cities and causing more problems as well as interfering with police to no effect.

Trump is undoing the damage the Democrats and Obama did to the US and US interests. Race relations was set back several decades by Obama. It has shown who the real racists are by the riots, etc.

The status of forces agreement allows the US Military to investigate such incidents. This shows how fragile warships can be. The actions of the merchant ship seem very suspect with the unusual turns.

It seems that liberals just want to make trouble for the Trumps and the USA. They do not present any good reasons for their actions and destroy property with riots for no good purpose. Good for Japanese markets on those products.

Posted in: Tokyo’s beautiful new license plates are based on one of Japan’s most famous woodblock paintings See in context

The states of the USA were originally separate countries and actually are such under the constitution. Individual counties in states are equal to Japanese prefectures for most purposes. Most states have several types of license plates including special personal plates that cost extra each year while in use and may be transferred to other vehicles. Some special plates like Purple Heart, Military Veteran, and disabled plates are not charged extra The Purple Heart is the US military combat wound medal.

Posted in: Mastering a better apple pie See in context

I was surprised during my last visit to Japan in 2005 that Mac Donald's Japan didn't serve apple pies like they do in the USA. Actually they are more like apple turnovers and very good and not expensive, about Y125 for one and Y200 for two. I do like good apple pie.

Posted in: Obama disputes Trump on rigged election, tells him to 'stop whining' See in context

It has been proven many times that the Democrats have stuffed ballot boxes or otherwise been involved in illegal voting for generations, especially in the last few elections. They arranged for thousands of illegals to register and vote for Obama. Colorado found at least 5,000 unlawful voters, mainly of Mexican origin, in the last presidential election. In addition thousands of dead were found to have voted in Chicago and many other cities, mainly in the Eastern USA. Only US citizens are allowed to vote. The Democrats have blocked official identification for voters to facilitate illegal voting. Obama tried to block US Military from voting because they usually vote conservative. Unfortunately many were kept from voting do to the confusion he caused. Most voting is controlled by the individual states, rather then the Federal Government but mail and Military voting must have cooperation of some federal agencies.

That's called assault with a deadly weapon, or attempted murder in the USA. He would probably be tried as an adult in the US and do some prison time in a Juvenile facility as well as be forced into psychiatric counseling.
