Only a simpleton could justify this barbaric slaughter.

Nobody has provided reasons why the hunt should stop. If you don't like hunting dolphins, then don't. If you don't like eating dolphin, then don't.

The slaughtermen in Taiji erected barriers and stopped people filming and taking photographs

This is not true.

I was just poking fun, but you actually made my li'l comment more on-topic than you think.

No. It's still off-topic Mr. Smith. You're trying to start a debate about the troops in Okinawa, but this isn't the place for it.

Moderator: No further discussion on this point please.

Time to kick those marines out of Okinawa!

Nice try, but it's off-topic.

Their response was, "it's not a matter of money, dolphins are pests and eating the fish we are after"

Isn't that a good reason to cull them?

Anyone who goes to see those shows has to be selfish and stupid.

This is rude. Maybe people want to learn about animals.

I'll be in Taiji on 1st September along with a lot of other people.

Maybe you should just leave them alone and let them do their jobs. The people of Taiji don't harass you, so you should just leave them alone.

Japan has the blood of whales and dolphins on its hands. The world is watching.

Please tell us what's wrong with hunting dolphins.

You contradict yourself:

No, I'm not. I was quoting another poster here.

Making a documentary raises public awareness and educates in one of the most effective ways possible.

No it doesn't. Not when your intended audience doesn't want to watch your documentary because they feel it insults them.

this comment needs to be repeated What really angers me about this is why all of a sudden people feel the need to attack Japan on this issue. I agree as if these activists really are concerned about the dangerous levels of toxin in dolphins. Then why don't they address this through other means like education, research and public awareness? This is only going to create more anger and miscommunication which benefits no one. If the Japanese people were educated in that eating dolphin was actually hazardous to their health. I think people then would want to know about it!

I don't believe there are any.

Like most documentaries, many of the scenes are staged for dramatic effect, or misrepresented to "prove" the filmmaker's thesis.

Is it a documentary??

While many of the scenes in the film are staged or misrepresented, it is still considered a documentary.

The above concepts are completely alien to the Japanese unfortunately, thus the hunting continues.

Less than 100 fishermen engage in this hunt, and most Japanese don't know dolphins are hunted in their country. Yet you stereotype the entire country and insult them. Did you do a survey to come to your disrespectful conclusion? You should find another forum to spew your hatred.

Why are you excusing the dolphin killers hoodwinking the nation and the medias lack of reporting?

This is a strawman argument. I never said anything like that.

paulinuasa, they will say, "it may disrupt our business".

If they don't make a profit from showing the film, then it would be bad business to do so.

Dolphins and whales are cute mammals so let's not eat them.

Dolphins, yes. Whales, no.

Posted in: Toyota president urges workers, dealers to work toward new start See in context

he started to get greedy by cutting cost and disregarding certain things to become the number one car dealer in the world.

Actually, Akio Toyoda became president in June 2009, 6 months after Toyota became the world's largest car maker. Therefore, your libelous statment is false.

"Stewart Stogel, 49, said his 2009 Camry accelerated to about 15 mph (24 kph) on a street near his home on Saturday, five days after a dealership trimmed the gas pedal and installed new brake override software as part of the floor mat recall."

Yes, because the car was on a hill. Cars with automatic transmissions move forward while idling, and being on a hill will increase the speed.

Posted in: Tokyo has one safety standard for U.S. beef and another for Toyota's cars and I am extremely tired of the imbalance. See in context

On the other hand, Tokyo must prove that Japanese cars are safe- because the Americans (54 dead and hundreds injured) have proven they are dangerous !

The cars are made in America. So why would Tokyo have to do anything?

That they are so very clearly not equal. Someone who would type that is either laughing to themselves when they type it or is just not knowledgable of the market...

Actually, if you do the research, you'll find the trade barriers between the two countries are very similar.

"Incredibly incredibly rare defect". The numbers are starting to disagree, the "actual" numbers that is- not the ones provided by Toyota !

Actually, the number of proven cases remains incredibly rare. The number of potential cases may be growing, but those have to be proven to not be driver error.

What a shame the opposite can't be said for all those American companys that want to sell in "market controlled and closed" Japan.

Actually, the Japanese market is as open to American competition as the American market is to Japanese. Both countries have certain protectionist measures in place, but they are entirely equal.

Posted in: Republicans setting filibuster record See in context

With the Senate now made up of 100 members, two for each of the 50 states, an opposition filibuster can only be broken with 60 votes—a three-fifths majority.

Our Senate should have proportional representation. Theoretically, 59 Senators can represent 88% of Americans but get blocked by a Senator that represents only 272,000 people (John Barrasso, for example).
