Maybe the offenders that willingly break the law want that Big Chicken Dinner just to get out of their hitch. The military isn't an option anymore even for that wonderful G.I. bill. Just not worth it.

Wasn't long ago the Japan govt was boasting about opening terror watch stations abroad. That being said, this has come about.

Posted in: Huge Japan pension fund sees worst loss since financial crisis See in context

Yeah for those that pay, we could have around 24,000 extra yen per month for whatever. When the news broke months ago that those scumbags were going to use the money from the pension fund to piss away on the stock market, it was obviously curtains for that cash. World wide politicians have become so greedy and corrupt. There is no justice in the world. They will never get what should be coming to them. What a bunch of crooks.

Posted in: At old-style drinking places, the quest for Showa-era nostalgia clashes with reality See in context

I have noticed that compared to say 5 years ago, I see a lot more salarymen standing outside drinking near a conbini these days. Could it possibly be people can't afford to go to a drinking establishment anymore? In the past I was able to manage two Fridays a month out for some beers but not these days. Conbini Mae!

I just have to question how this can happen countless times when it's literally never happened to me. Not once.

Maybe people just want to avoid you.

Curious though, I wonder how many crimes go unreported in Japan...

It will take years for Britain to successfully get out of the EU. What's with the hype.It certainly won't happen overnight.

Ultimately, what the authorities have done or probably will do is thoroughly VET this guy.

The police will really have to vet this guy to see if he has anything to do with the other incidents.

Drinking in bars in Japan is a ripoff. Buy a good case of Kirkland ale and pale ale from costco and kick back at home.

Take a look at his picture if you haven't already. The one for this article. He literally looks like a child that didn't get his way. It's really a barrel of laughs to see!

Jel Merd, I just wanted to say that once an individual joins the military, U.S. mil. that is, one no longer is in a democracy. One is then under the UCMJ. Uniform Code of Military Justice One is said to defend democracy but it doesn't apply to you like it would civilians.

Posted in: U.S. Navy slaps drinking ban on 18,600 sailors in Japan, ends liberty See in context

Extremely harsh reaction/decision from the top brass on this one. It's also really unfortunate that individuals that post comments on this site obviously have a negative opinion about Navy personnel. I have several friends that I meet up with when I can. Nice guys that up until now really enjoyed going to an izakaya, eat some good food, enjoy some nice cold mugs of beer and just have a good time. These fellas are always very courteous and extremely polite anyplace I have ever gone with them. To stereotype everyone as bad, as a drunk or irresponsible is such a misguided way to think. You are really misinformed.

Posted in: Electing Trump would be 'historic mistake,' Clinton declares See in context

Electing her would be a historic tragedy. The world isn't ready for another Clinton. Trump is about the best that the failed two party system has to offer.

Obama is foolish for even entertaining the thought of going there in the first place.

Sad part is, what they are doing, in their minds is the right thing. The solution to it all. This is nothing. Wait until the olympics. There will be massive amounts of security, everywhere.

Probably had three bags of groceries hanging from the handlebars too. Those cycle moms think they own the streets. She should be in jail.

Posted in: Elementary school teacher caught lifting man's wallet on train See in context

Regardless of what judicial punishment he receives, just being humiliated by his own actions and losing his job will be more than enough. That is if he even cares. Kind of sad though that this fella threw away his career just to get a few yen. Over a lifetime of salary every month and a supposed retirement. Man oh man and I am just making ends meet with no future benefits after I get older... What a nincompoop!!!

Posted in: North Korea sends another U.S. citizen to prison See in context

Even if I could travel I surely wouldn't go to North Korea. Well, wait, I, I take that back. I want to check out those big hats the military members wear! They have giant hats! Seriously though, stay away from North Korea. Sounds like a sure trip to the iron bar hotel.

Posted in: Golden Week holiday rush begins See in context

My question is, where do people get the money to travel? Having a family of four, we can afford to rent a car for 12 hours. To actually travel domestic or international just seems amazing that folks can afford it.

Not trying to promote violence but if the two of them would have just attacked one of the baddies then the other dimwit would have run off scared. But they didn't want trouble so they paid...

Posted in: Putin waiting for invitation to visit Japan: Lavrov See in context

Lavrov and Kishida should have their guys under them meet and decided when Lavrov and Kishida will meet. Those two guys could have their underlings decide stuff for them too... and so on...that way they could have meetings to decide when there will be a meeting... about the next level of meetings!

I have learned to just quit wasting time in those situations. Go for a walk or bike ride. Why talk to deaf ears, basically. And the one commenter, sleep in seperate bedrooms and only talk about money. Not exactly true. I am spoken to about food too. LOL!!!
