Waste of more tax payers money when these world leaders can just discuss everything through video conferencing these days!

Just sad on all levels! Babies can’t protect themselves and these monsters just discard them as trash ( literally on this occasion )! More no questions asked adoption sites need to be made available as this might save some babies from death! Women get pregnant fully aware of their pregnancy ( since they miss their monthly cycles and can easily take pregnancy test when this happens ) yet they don’t seek any help from authorities until the infant is born and then throw it in toilets, garbage, forest and elsewhere! They have a good 7-9 months to deal with this but don’t and then say “ I felt panicked or I didn’t know what to do … “! There are options available such as morning pills after sexual encounters, legal abortions for up to 22 weeks or even getting in touch with authorities for adoption. These killers need to be punished strictly so that the crime isn’t repeated by others!

Posted in: Japan to scrap licenses for electric scooters See in context

Regulations pertaining to electric scooters will take effect within two years, while those related to automated driving will be carried out within a year.

Seems like a way too long timeline! Two years to implement a law is even longer than the timeline for Japan’s PM in power as of late!

Posted in: Japan to scrap licenses for electric scooters See in context

Love it or hate it one fact remains… these e scooters will always be safer than those wild mamachari bikes! Those bikes are a menace with the high speed cycling done by some idiots who don’t care about the safety of the pedestrians and even their own kids who are hanging on for dear life in the front and back! In cities like Tokyo the bicycle problem will never be solved due to lack of space while the introduction of e scooters is a wait and see scenario!

Throw him in prison already! It’s one thing to do peaceful protest but it a crime to disturb public peace and business operation! Make an example out of him as these protest are becoming more and more frequent wild in Japan recently! I love the old peaceful way Japan society was known for! Western influence is making Japan into a garbage dump!

Posted in: Japan revokes Russia's 'most favored nation' status; expels 8 Russians See in context

@Hiro… spot on mate! You’ve stated the facts!

@Nosui… what you’ve highlighted is indeed what’s happening especially recently but if we break down what you’ve mentioned about laws not making a country less democratic, this in fact is a bit of a stretch. Many laws passed recently by Governments globally regarding sanctions didn’t have the mandate of every citizen so it was more or less of a group of dictators ( Government politicians ) implementing what they felt like doing! This is somewhat same as what China does to make its laws without public mandate and they are bashed for it! A lot of people globally still won’t support sanctions since it affects them directly or indirectly by affecting the cost of living! When life becomes more and more expensive just to survive then those who are supporting sanctions now will blame everyone else but themselves!

Posted in: Average condo price in Tokyo area sets new high in fiscal 2021 See in context

There are so many better cities than Tokyo in Japan! Other cities are much more cleaner, more spacious and more friendly locals! Yes, the salary in Tokyo is slightly higher than other prefectures but if you factor in the cost of living then you will definitely save more money and live in more luxury if you choose other prefectures rather than Tokyo!

If China had created a reality show same as this then the western media and activist would have been all over it bashing it for child exploitation and danger to children’s welfare! But since it’s Japan the West ( mostly Americans ) are wowed by how wonderful this is!

Posted in: War, economy could weaken Putin's place as leader See in context

Russians who initially opposed the invasion are now supporting Putin or close to supporting Putin because every Russian has been discriminated by the west from sanctions and bans! The only thing that these sanctions will do is bring Russians together and make them stronger!

JR East's Tokyo branch, which learned of the situation on Thursday, said it had been considering removing the foreign language signs after the Tokyo Games concluded last summer, "but we have yet to decide what to do."

That’s Japan for you in a nutshell!

Just install a video cam on your door and if you don’t want to be disturbed by this long time wasting process then just ignore them when they ring the door bell. Do the same when those creepy NHK guys come around to extort money!

So much fuss and online discussions regarding the illustration ( artwork ) that it made me realize that people have so much of free time on their hands to be bothered by or curious about something like this!

Posted in: French court jails Chilean man for 28 years for killing Japanese ex-girlfriend See in context

@Joanne…For all those commenting here that 28 years in prison is too short, take a look at the Japanese legal system where Japanese killers get a much shorter sentence on most occasions! 

You are absolutely correct! Japanese killers in Japan have been sentenced to far less years! Yet, comments here seem to indicate that the French legal system didn’t do enough…smh! The French legal system is a million times fairer than the pathetic Japanese legal system!

The bigger question is will he appeal? When will his current sentence start and is there a time limit for parole? More information needed JT! My guess is that he will appeal since no blood was found, no murder weapon and no body! Yes, he probably killed her but the case is still circumstantial if we follow the narrative of this article! He will keep pleading his innocence and appeal!

Posted in: Biden says Putin cannot remain in power See in context

@Fizzbit

Thank god we had Trump for 4 years. 

My same comment as above :

We all now that you rather have Trump as the President and hate Biden to the core. That is the same Trump sat quietly beside Putin when Putin bashed America and the American agencies and Trump agreed with every word that came out of Putins mouth! Even 90% of GOP members said at that time that Trump was wrong to do so! That’s the coward Trump being a puppet of a war criminal Putin! Putin has always had leverage over Trump. Trump never put America first and just put himself first! To date, Trump hasn’t criticized Putin once, even after the Ukraine invasion and death of thousands of innocent!

TRUMP WOULD HAVE JOINED RUSSIA IN THIS INVASION AND CALLED IT A JOINT RUSSIAN/ AMERICAN MILITARY PROJECT AND PATTED HIMSELF FOR ACHIEVING THAT!!!

So who is this “White House” that is always correcting the President? 

its getting to the point where we can’t believe anything Biden says and have to wait for “White house” to confirm if he meant it or was even allowed to say it. Total puppet. And a bad one at that he can’t end read correctly what he is told to say.

Posted in: Japan beats Australia 2-0 to qualify for World Cup See in context

They can't even qualify beyond their own playoff semi-final against North Macedonia.

And yet if this Italy team plays this Japan team or any other team in the Oceania / Asia region the Italians would trash them with a big score line! This just highlighted the original post by someone that the World Cup isn’t the best teams necessarily and the allocations for the qualifiers needs to be re-evaluated! More places needs to be given to quality teams from Europe and South America rather than weaker Asian / Oceania teams who never or hardly ever make it past the pool matches !

Posted in: Japan beats Australia 2-0 to qualify for World Cup See in context

The Japan team wasn’t as good as the score line suggest! The truth is that the Australian team is just horrible! Their bad performance made the Japanese team look good! This is the same Japanese team which list its first few matches during the WCQ and was bashed by everyone and even doubted that they would qualify for the WC. But after their first match up with the Socceroos a few weeks back they turned things around by gaining confidence. Then after beating the Australian team again they confirmed their place in the WC! But they won’t will be extremely lucky to win a single match in the WC if they don’t lift up their game because they only qualified due to the poor performance of other teams in the Oceania / Asia region rather than their own superior performance!

Posted in: Putin's demand for ruble payments? No way, say EU nations See in context

If The European nations don’t want to pay in Rubles then they can look elsewhere for their oil and gas…not many options for them and end result will be they’ll suffer and their own citizens will turn on them when the price for gas and oil skyrocket due to shortage!

India, China and some other countries will continue to buy in rubles from Russia so no problem for them!

Yes, the invasion is terrible but counties should sanction Russia other ways and keep the oil situation out of this!

What are your thoughts on this?

Police said the woman had been visiting Kikuchi to discuss the break-up.

Is this a safe or idiotic move?

Posted in: Japan to spend ¥1.45 tril on 4th vaccine shots, other anti-virus measures See in context

Seems like the pharmaceutical companies are making lots of money by saying that a second shot is necessary and then after a few weeks later claimed a third shot ( booster ) was needed within 6months. That wasn’t it though and now we are talking about a fourth shot! Next will be the fifth then sixth and so on! I’ve received my two shots and waiting for my third but this is really depressing hearing that we all will need more and more shots of this! I really dislike conspiracy theorists but now it makes me wonder who really manufactured the Covid virus ( was it in a China laboratory or some pharmaceutical company who manufactured it in the US and released it in Wuhan market since they are benefiting the most from this outbreak )!

Posted in: Zelenskyy appeals to Japan for more sanctions against Russia See in context

What’s the end game of the Ukrainian President? Yes, Putin is evil but Zelenskyy is not without faults. He seems to be just begging countries for money, weapons and sanctions against Russia! The Ukrainian military is just hiding behind civilians and doing hit and run strategies to hold back the Russian military! It’s working out well for them until now but will not last forever. So far Russia hasn’t used its weapons fully so the day isn’t far that Putin will authorize more missiles to be fired, nuclear weapons or chemical weapons as well because there is no chance that he will stop the invasion and accept defeat! Ukrainian Government needs to compromise to some extent to avoid an all out war. One thing is for sure that nobody wins in the end as more people will die! The world is on the brink of a nuclear war because of the stubbornness of not only Putin, but also Zelenskyy and the Western leaders who have been putting fuel on the fire by constantly bashing Putin instead of being more diplomatic to find a solution! The sanctions and bashing of Putin will only make him angrier and authorize the use of nuclear weapons! Mark my words that day isn’t far away!

Bored of it now!!!

Until you or your loved ones get infected and die like the 200 plus people daily in Japan for the past few weeks! Covid-19 should be taken seriously even if we all are trying to learn to live with it. Basic precautions such as washing hands regularly and sanitizing things that are used by the public is still very much needed!

Posted in: Ex-Nissan exec Kelly gets suspended sentence; judge slams Ghosn See in context

Well it’s finally over for him but his career destroyed by the terrible justice system in Japan! He can resume his medical treatment and probably retirement back in the US. All foreigners know about the dark side of Japan’s working sector and the joke of a legal system already, yet are so desperate to get Jobs at various Japan Inc. Foreigners have heaps of unwarranted praise for Japan but suddenly when things get bad for them then they see the real Japan and perspective. As someone mentioned above, more than 90% of Japanese people avoid the Ghosn topic because they don’t want to reveal that they don’t like foreigners as heads of Japanese companies! So Ghosn and Kelly were already guilty in their mind and nothing will change this! There are far better options with greater pay in benefits for executives to explore elsewhere rather than waste their life without any appreciation in Japanese companies, and be ‘ thrown under the bus ‘ as Ghosn and Kelly were!
