You want law and order, a strong economy and your freedom, vote Trump.

You want chaos, a weak economy and loss of your freedom, vote Harris-Biden.

This President has wreaked racial and pandemic mis-management chaos onto America. He is trying to take away the freedom to vote. An absolute disgrace of a man.

Posted in: Drinking parties, group trips by the elderly and wild partying by youths should be avoided, but families spending time among themselves at travel destinations have a low risk of getting infected or infecting others. See in context

Went to Nagano for a few days. Elderly man on bullet train removed his mask to cough furiously. They’ve returned. He has fever, lethargy and stomach aches. He’s now isolating. Definitely not safe out there.

If any of you doubt SJs comments, please refer to Aso’s 2012 comments on

the elderly. This is a major incident and the government by seizing an opportunity. The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein has all the info you need. https://www.google.co.jp/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2013/jan/22/elderly-hurry-up-die-japanese

Posted in: Man arrested for abducting junior high school girl with intent to commit sexual assault See in context

Japan isn’t as safe for women as the national police statistics suggest. Numerous children and women have told me about the daily harassment on the trains. Some of these stories were truly frightening. Sometimes nobody would help very young girls suffering horrible attacks on trains. A student told me that once when she got off the train, she noticed her bag and skirt were...”dirty”. As a western male, be careful not to assume everything is fine here for women just because you cannot see the violence.

Posted in: Baby with umbilical cord attached found in convenience store toilet See in context

Childbirth doesn't always require moaning and screaming.... That's the movies innit? My experience was a brief bit of discomfort followed by a baby splashdown into the birthing pool.

Posted in: 9-year-old boy suffers fractured skull in hit-and-run See in context

Whether he was wearing a helmet is irrelevant. The driver has run into a boy on the crossing and has disappeared. Entering the crosswalk whilst pedestrians are crossing is illegal but happens daily. Police do not enforce the law. I enforce the law by chasing the car on my bike and bellowing at the driver. We need police or laws to change.

Posted in: Rally for more daycare centers See in context

Parents should be paid to care for their own children. The quality of daycare children attention span, behavior and ability to learn is massively lower compared to the regular kindergarten kid. I run an English school and have consistently seen the deficiencies of daycare children. Parents are the best care providers.

My wife and son were hit by a car last year on a crossing by a woman going thru a red light. Luckily, they weren't seriously harmed. The driver paid compensation but was not arrested or charged. National emergency, sort it out.

Posted in: The major cause of heatstroke is abnormal weather, but children’s lifestyle of playing games in air-conditioned indoor settings has likely contributed to the increase. See in context

My kids play hi tempo soccer in this heat. Mostly in the shade but often in full sun. At home we only use fans. I think it's possible for kids to be acclimated as long as they are well prepared.

Posted in: 10 tips on giving birth in Japan See in context

We had our kids with the help of mid wives. Fantastic experiences. Father was there, birth in a pool at a midwife house and one in the bath at home. No epidurals, just warm water and breathing. This article, although accurate for some, isn't the whole story of childbirth in Japan.

Posted in: Man wanted for attacks on school boys in Saitama See in context

My kids go to the local school in Saitama city. In the last month we have had 2 alerts from the school about weird phone calls asking for kids addresses and also sightings of a strange man around school. Luckily we live very close to the school and there is heavy foot traffic between the school and our house so I don't worrytoomuch
