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.

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.

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.

one million yen is nothing in comparison to the man's loss. He should have received 100 times as much. And the private detective should have received 5 years in jail.

McDonald's should add apple pies to the Japanese inventory. They are very good in the USA and popular. I looked for them on my last trip to Hiroshima in 2005.

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.

Posted in: For Ivanka-brand goods, Nordstrom's loss is Japan's gain See in context

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.

Posted in: 3 dead, 12 wounded in gunfire at Los Angeles restaurant See in context

Areas like Los Angeles and a few large cities with tighter gun laws have higher rates of violence, most gun violence is done with stolen weapons. Areas with higher gun ownership and concealed carry have much less problems. The stupidity of thought that more gun laws will reduce gun violence feeds the problem. Accidents may happen but the so called incident about a 12 year old didn't seem to make the news that I ever saw. and automatic weapons are banned from the general public so the veracity of that story is in doubt. In fact few police even have automatic weapons. Semi auto are common and require the trigger to be pulled for each shot.

Posted in: Firestorm as Trump says gun-rights backers can stop Clinton See in context

Clinton has stated several times that she and the Democrats want to eliminate the second amendment, they have also opposed the 1st and 4th amendments of the US Constitution. In fact all of the large group shootings have been done by Democrats or supporters of Democrats. They seem to forget also that the KKK and other racist groups were or are associated with the Democrats. The Republicans in fact have supported racial equality from at least the 19th century. Ms. Clinton has in fact lied to the congress and to the people of the USA, she also stole close to 1/4 million dollars valued items from the White House when her husbands term as president ended and democrats who are in fact socialists/Marxists damaged many computers and other items.

Posted in: 'I still hate the glow of the sun': Hiroshima survivors' tales See in context

Many who were there are not registered victims because of the Japanese society discrimination against bomb survivors, that included my ex wife, her parents and brother. She has cancer now, but can only get regular medical care because her mother and father never registered. She still remembers, and I heard the tales of what it was like. Her father pointed out where he was when the bomb went off over Hiroshima to us on New Year Day 2005 as we went to the ceremonies at the new Hiroshima Castle and shrine on the new tram. He died a couple years later. That was my last trip to Japan. I'm too old to make another trip there and after my brother in law took all the small estate of the family for himself my ex will never return either if she survives her cancer. My mother in law's younger brother also took everything from his sisters.

Posted in: Protests turn violent outside Trump rally in New Mexico See in context

Many of the protesters are not only being paid, many are illegals who fear they will be deported back to their countries of origin as they well should be. Illegals from Mexico and Central America are bankrupting the states because the Democrats are supporting them as socialists do trying to gain more power over the rest of the country. Most of the illegals do not pay taxes, but do request social services such as free education, food stamps , and free or subsidized housing.

Posted in: 7 things Japanese people in int'l marriages wish they’d known before tying the knot See in context

after my second child was born my now ex who is Japanese no longer wanted to sleep with me and consistently refused sex or even closeness most of the time, she also wanted to sleep separately mostly. She even asked for a divorce that her mother talked her out of. From my understanding I was considered almost Japanese because having been an Asian History major I adapted very well to most Japanese customs, and enjoyed Japan always, including food and clothes (loved my kimono). WWII Japanese Imperial Military veterans and I got along well because mostly we were professional military as was my father and many family members. I also love my Katanas and Japanese Martial arts. I also studied the way of tea with more interest then my now ex. She was in her 50s and after her mother died she decided she wanted that divorce. My older son won't speak to his mother now because of her actions, he was born in Japan and Hiroshima dialect was his first language. He had some special language lessons in school to correct his English pronunciation and was always close to me. He is also a student of the sword, as are his siblings somewhat. All of my children have swords. I am a knight and Baron (Daimyo) so I try to advise them to live as close to their mother's culture as I like too. I try to follow Bushido. I was able to obtain hereditary knighthoods for all but my youngest daughter who will inherit mine while my older son will inherit my title. Even after several years of divorce I try to help my ex since her brother took all the family inheritance. I still miss Japan and only my children and my older brother's request keeps me from wanting to live there.

Posted in: Gunman opens fire at Oregon college; at least 9 killed, 7 wounded See in context

Many countries do not allow gun ownership, so the nuts use knives and clubs to kill people constantly. In fact most murders in the USA are done with clubs or hammers. The US is #111 in the world for murder rates. Without a few large cities in the East and Chicago it would be #211 in the world. It's the media who spread this stuff and make it look so bad. Everyday in Japan nuts are stabbing people, including many children. The same in China and other countries. And if you look close you can see a parallel between crime and the Muslim immigration in many countries like Sweden, Norway, and Denmark with the very large numbers of rapes constantly. No matter what Muslims say western and Asian women are not of loose moral character. And most gun owners are very responsible individuals, as are most prior military.

Posted in: Gunman opens fire at Oregon college; at least 9 killed, 7 wounded See in context

The police in general harass people who assert their right to carry firearms and most states have laws against anyone having firearms on school campus except police. Almost all of these shooters do not possess the guns they use legally. Those that do is because usually they were not reported properly to be banned from firearms. The NRA is one of the largest supporters of police and military, they are also the largest gun safety organization in the world and most schools, etc. will not allow gun safety to be taught to children as it should be. Gun laws were started to keep minorities, mainly blacks, from owning firearms for self defense. Any idiot should know the US Constitution designed the second amendment to protect the rest of them.
