Posted in: Wrongly jailed Nepalese man returns home from Japan See in context

@tmarie: enough already with throwing around the "racist" word at everyone who disagrees with you. The fact is this person was in Japan illegally -- that is not racist -- he was breaking the law and is an insult to all the legal, non-Japanese who went through the immigration process to live here legally. Maybe the Japanese police were overzealous in accusing this guy, but he admitted to having sex with her and having a key to her apartment -- it doesn't take Colombo to at least make him a person of interest....

Talk is cheap; tortured, but no details? Furthermore, there is no such term as "migrant" worker here -- he was probably a visa overstayer. Finally, I'd bet the US national debt if he had to, without hesitation he would gladly spend those 15 years in a Japanese prison than a Nepalese prison...

Hey Chen you want to coem to the US? Did you fill out your Department of Homeland Security I-864 (Affidavit of Support)? Oh, I guess you didn't think that far in advance. Just figured you'd freeload off of US taxpayers just because you don't like your country's one child policy. Want to study law? Hey, so would I, but I have to work to support my family. Maybe if you stopped your whining about other people's problems the Chinese government would leave you and your alone AND stop bothering our government officials who have infinitely more important things to do.

Posted in: Dissident Chen appeals to Obama to help him leave China See in context

America stop meddling in other country's domestic affairs. I haven't heard of the Chinese Premier commenting on the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman case or the occupy Wall Street Protests. The US has 10.9% real unemployment, 16 trillion dollars in debt and an entitlement system on the verge of collapse; do you think our government has more important things to worry about than some minor issues in China. Earth to Chen: if you really cared about these so-called "injustices" in your country why don't you stay and try to make some meaningful changes within the system instead of trying to run away. Suu Kyi did it in Myanmar....

Posted in: No decision for Darvish in second Texas start See in context

@HS: Oh Boo Hoo; Japanase have excuses for everything. I'm old enough to remember when they lowered the mound in MLB because it was such an advantage to pitchers. How about the pitch count -- virtually non-existent in Japan -- Darvish is practically a relief pitcher in US according to his pitch count...

Posted in: No decision for Darvish in second Texas start See in context

Mariners and now the Twins; two last place teams he's pitched against and his performance has been less than stellar, in fact, its downright disappointing. What adjustments does he have to make? Its baseball, not rocket science. The fact is he is not facing "real" ballplayers and not salarymen in uniforms....

Posted in: Darvish solid against Milwaukee batters See in context

For some strange reason the media here is holding its breath every time this guy takes the mound, I would expect the Rangers to be doing that after basically throwing away 50 million dollars they have to put everything Darvish does in a good light. Since there is nothing else to report about any other Japanese players (Matsui who?) I guess the Japanese media have to fixate on someone...

@smithinjapan:

1) Obama was barely a senator for two years, never held a job in the real world and got into Harvard because of his ethnic background. The local ministers in Chicago refused to let him be a "community organizer" until he joined a church -- and we all know what church he joined... 2) Hillary Clinton was basically a housewife before she was offered a senator job in NY in exchange for not leaving her husband and I don't have to mention why...

If this was the end of Obama's second term what "highly qualified" candidates in the Democratic party would be vying for the nomination: Barney Frank? Nancy Pelosi? Charles Rangel? Anthony Weiner?

Posted in: Accused U.S. soldier flown out of Afghanistan See in context

I'll say it again. The average overseas deployment during WWII was only 16 months. This guy was over 36 months and with a traumatic brain injury to boot -- something had to snap. Obviously, thousands of our brave service men and women have served in Iraq and Afganistan on multiple deployments without incident, but remember soldiers are not robots, everyone reacts to stress differently. Unless you have been there, you cannot pass judgement on this soldier...

Posted in: This so-called 'mancession' is going to cause continuing problems for the marriage rate and birth rate. Many young Japanese men say they want to have a stable job before they consider marrying. See in context

Probably money issues are the biggest root cause of divorce in America. At least Japanese men (for the most part) understand a stable income is one of the pillars to a stable marriage. America is turning into a country of "single mothers" which leads to lost opportunities for these children due to limited financial means to obtain a good education and the guidance from a stable, two-parent household...

Posted in: Try finding a job at 60 See in context

I worked for a Japanese electronics maker for 20 years and turned 60 this past summer. Of the 24 others who retired within the same month as me at our company I was the only one offered a position to continue working. The Japanese government gives me 30,000 a month called "thank you" money for continuing to work; also, I receive a national pension of 70,000 a month which will continue to increase every year until I turn 65. The 60 retirement age is not unique to Japan, its the standard policy throughout Asia which is better than most of Europe where its considered a human rights violation to work past 55...
