The refugee status system is being abused the world over but there has to be a better way for Japan to handle people.

It reminds me of a time shortly after I arrived in Japan years ago, when I woke up with a full size light up sign next to my bed.

Posted in: Skin trouble on rise as face masks become essential See in context

It doesn't and shouldn't need to take a lab test costing thousands to show you that a face covering will help limit the spread of droplets from your nose and mouth. I'm sure most of us at some point have sneezed with a scarf wrapped up around the nose and mouth and we know how that turns out.

Posted in: Mother arrested after leaving 3-year-old daughter alone for week to die See in context

During voluntary questioning before her arrest, Kakehashi initially said Noa became ill several days before her death but she had no money to take her to a hospital for treatment

No money to get to a hospital for treatment of her sick child but has money for a jaunt to Kagoshima!

You do not pay directly for the treatment of children in Japan, up to JHS I believe. As someone has pointed out it is covered by parents insurance payments but I really can't imagine they would make single mother, who I assume isn't working, pay directly.

Posted in: U.S. withdrawal from WHO to take effect July 2021 See in context

There's no doubt the WHO does a lot of good around the world and Trumps withdrawal will hurt/kill many deprived people, so I cannot agree with his reaction but the WHO has been pretty useless with COVID from what I can see.

Posted in: Names of 18 and 19-year-old criminals to no longer be concealed from 2022 See in context

This is a good move but while they're at it I believe names shouldn't be released in the media until they have actually been found guilty. Too many people have to live with the stigma of getting caught up in a case, when they're completely innocent.

I don't need to read a book to form an opinion of Trump thanks but i'd believe what his niece says about him over anything the WH propaganda machine spins.

He hits children and women. Let see what happens when a few real men find out what he does during his time behind bars.

Unfortunately he will likely be many like-minded men in prison here.

MariaToday  08:31 am JST

a few real men 

These are all "real men", dear - the violent ones, the cheats, the manipulators, the liars, the rapists, the killers. They are just as real as the men who don't hit, cheat, abuse, rape, and kill.

No, he is not even half the man who doesn't beat women and children.

Posted in: Johnson demands Britain 'Build, build, build' to beat COVID-19 slump See in context

Yes the 5 billion quid expenditure announced for infrastructure looks rather pathetic compared to other European countries because the EU heavily subsidizes infrastructure development. Briton simply cannot commit to 'Spend Spend Spend' because it simply cannot afford to out of the EU.

Lets face it, in reality 5 billion pounds doesn't actually build you many schools, hospital or roads for the whole nation. Doh!

Posted in: U.S. virus cases near an all-time high as governors backtrack See in context

I never refused to admit that higher testing results in higher numbers. My point is that your country, led by Trump, has handled containment appallingly and your high number of positive test results just backs that up!

SerranoToday  12:50 pm JST

So the U.S has loads of cases and loads of deaths, yet Trump followers still think he's handling it great. Weird.

I keep telling you we test more, you don't listen. Weird.

You can tell me all you like but the reality is that your dear leader could test everyone in the country and if he had done a good job of containing it, the job he should've done and should be doing, you wouldn't have so many positive results and deaths.

Have the leaders of Brazil and UK done a good job? No, they dragged their heels, dismissed it early on and have failed to advise their citizens correctly, the same as Trump. That is the reality no matter how your cult leaders propaganda machine tries to dress it up.
