Posted in: U.S. Supreme Court expands gun rights, with nation divided See in context

Can’t believe people are so stupid on here. 1 ban on guns would just take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens, yet the criminals and nut jobs would still have all the guns they could ever want .

2 There is like 20 guns for every person in America, a little exaggeration but not much. How could you possibly get rid of all the guns?

3 better option that would actually work would provide the same kind of security for places like schools , churches, public places, that movie stars, and politicians get.

4 convict and send criminals that try to buy guns to Federal Prison.

5 spend money and provide mental health care/ counselors at schools to catch the crazies before they shoot up a school.

6 better security. Nobody should be able to walk into a school and start blasting away. Undercover retired police officers seem like a good idea.

ban on guns will never work. The above 6 things would result in real change

What did he expect ? It’s Japan.

i have done extremely well here financially but I’m stuck here. I would rather live in at least 5 other countries. Life happens when your busy making other plans

Posted in: Japan to ask foreign tourists to wear masks, take out COVID insurance See in context

This is beyond stupid, more importantly is the fact China has and probably never will be held accountable for causing this covid problem in the first place , not even an apology from China. I study was done that found whether people wore a mask or didn’t the deaths from covid would be the same.

Posted in: In Asia, Biden pushed values he struggles to sell at home See in context

Biden is nothing more than a very stupid puppet of the dem party. Amazing how fast the liberals have run the US into the ground. Border, inflation, supply chain , lifting tariffs, crime, you name it none of these liberal clowns in power do not have the experience or qualifications to solve anything. All they can do is scream racists.

at least under trump America was booming.

And now most of what trump was saying turned out to be true. Pathetic situation now. Liberalism is a disease!

Posted in: Hayashi points to U.S. forces over COVID surge in parts of Japan See in context

It’s mostly all the drunk salarymen at those tiny izakayas and the young Japanese that don’t care. Not to mention that there is no way you can social distance in this country , so small everywhere. To suggest it’s the military or foreigners is just ridiculous. 99 percent of the population is Japanese.

Posted in: Gov't eyes over ¥30 tril economic stimulus; restarting Go To Travel program See in context

The money goes to parents not kids, They are trying to help parents out a little this spring, is what I have been told. I have 3 kids and 300,000¥ would really help out this spring with tuition and uniforms , not to mention all the Juken tests and juku costs before that. Is 300,000¥ a fix all? Heck no, but I will take all the help I can get. I can see why the birthrate is so low in Japan . One word Expensive. But 28 trillion for go to travel??? And someone posted half of Japanese are vaccinated. Last I checked japan was at 71.6 percent fully vaccinated.

Posted in: Japan proposes tentative 1-year deal on cost-sharing for U.S. troops See in context

I can’t imagine Japan defending itself while they have self defense forces they don’t have a nuclear arsenal as a deterrent. They would get their butt kicked against any major conflict without help. Not to mention when was the last time anyone had any real wartime experience was 80 years ago

Posted in: 5 life-altering mistakes foreigners make when living in Japan See in context

dumb article, yeah balance is the key to living in Japan, or anywhere for that matter. Hell doing anything in your life should be well balanced. one thing annoyed me and that being "gaijin smashing" not the smashing so much, as the writers comment about making local opinion of gaijins bad. Who gives a shit about local opinion?? I quit caring what Japanese think 20 years ago. A better piece of advice would be " you can please some people some of the time, but you can't please everyone all of the time"". That would be way more useful for the noob that this article I assume is directed at.

Posted in: 10 types of Japanese men, according to Japanese women See in context

I thought there were only 2 types. The nerd and the dude that might as well be a lady ( Aerosmith ) saying a Japanese guy is tough is like saying your 80 year old grandma is a real badass.

Posted in: English-language teaching industry in bad shape See in context

Tigerguy maybe you taught like a monkey? or the place you worked just liked to hire idiots? from what I have experienced most English teachers cared and wanted their students to improve or do well in English. English educaton is about relationships and telling the students what to do, and how to study, as well as the actual teaching of conversation and grammar. I could go on...but I do agree that the eikaiwa industry as whole needs an upgrade. That is the main reason I opened my own school. Japanpete well put! Last paragraph!
