Posted in: Thailand to indict influential former PM Thaksin over royal insult See in context

he should be in jail regardless for his acts while in power. He's greedy for $&power which is why his sister was in power and now grooming his kids to be also in power which in itself insult Thais ability to lead country because in his objective it is only reserved for Thaksin's. How he's been treated since his return is corrupted act by his cronies.

Artificial altered beauty is just that, artificial, and most are noticeable to the naked eyes which sooner or later may be found chemicals damage natural beauty even more of which may cause deadly consequences... Nothing tops natural beauty as long as keeping it healthy and clean (just saying).

Super sad and greatly stressful knowing horrific criminal act happened... It is likely in court this man may claim mentally ill etc which may allow him to have less legal punishment he deserves. This man must be in confinement for life.

Posted in: Japanese foreign minister retracts controversial childbirth remark See in context

Major concern is why these stupid politicians are allowed in power? Stupid politicians begin gaining notices began with trump's MAGA which shamelessly lying 24/7 to grab headlines & media is mostly to blame for allowing/promoting anti democracy ideas of the old dark period when kings&dictators ruled. Demand her resignation so other politicians think twice before making stupid comments.

Posted in: More than a thousand protest outside German Tesla factory See in context

Tesla is a financial vehicle for its fascist owner to accumulate wealth, to spread his fascist racist agendas. It is why more consumers turn off from purchasing Tesla. No matter the quality but reputation matter. Musk destroys his enterprise by claiming fake free speech. Hopefully my comment is allowed by JT? It is about why Tesla is nothing but financing corrupt power. Arigato!

Posted in: Elementary school teacher arrested for hugging young boy See in context

Have y'all watched Netflix series "see me after school"? A teacher fell for her student who is in middle school, repeated middle school. Of course it's a show but it's a process to normalize adult and young kid romance which in this series normalize romance between a woman and young boy who is her student.

Question may be taboo to some, but is worth asking, are there persons in entire life without sex. drive? We may say God bless us with sex to enjoy and sustain life thus religions forbid sex is ungodly. Sex is good as long as it is consensual. Also wonder,do those claim to be strict flowers of religions have access to porn?

Posted in: Testimony begins in lawsuit accusing Japanese police of racial profiling See in context

Truth be told, Japanese are known historically throughout Asia as most homogeneous society which is the pride of Japan while overall ways of life and technology are all but copied from others mainly Europe and USA. Baseball? Cars? Computers/high tech? Fashions? Music? Migrant is allowed for mainly one purpose, to fill their aging population. Time to spread love and practice true Zen, love, peace, and contentment.

Posted in: S Korea says it will suspend licenses of striking junior doctors starting next week See in context

It is appalling seeing those studied medicine with first and foremost intention to help the sicks are on strike mainly to ensure they are well to do class while disregard well being of human beings. Classic monopoly of skills and knowledges. It would be the problem if their compensation is below the poverty line, but not at middle class and/or above as currently is, what more do they want? Get rich and accumulate wealth by work, save, invest, planning, etc, not with pain&suffering of patients. Fire them all, guarantee they'll walk back begging for work.

Posted in: How many married people with children in Japan admit to cheating on their spouse? Survey says… See in context

Ready or not, cheating is being normalized by reality shows, TV, movies, social media, etc. We live in period of fully connected to Iphones and tablets/computers so life style is shaped by stories on screens and social media. Apps for date, anyone? apps, for affairs, anyone? Ain't no big deal anymore. Ever wonder fascism, Nazis, lies on media are no longer big deal because it is all over social media and mainstream media are forced to follow suit. In fact to gain more clicks and followers, isn't better glamorize affairs?

Posted in: Do you think the performance of the stock market in a country reflects the performance of the economy as a whole? See in context

To the experts/economists believe stock market do not reflect economy, I say, think again. Market driven by profits and growth so it depends on the economy. Good policies are needed for sustain and growth of econ while stock market sometimes fluctuate based on speculations and others, but overall strong econ drive market. The question is, if the elite economists who always mention mathematical & quantitative theories to credential their reasoning, why inflation and unemployment can't be controlled for good? Econ is not science but practical and common sense supply and demand balancing act.

Posted in: South Korea health alert raised to 'severe' over doctors walkout See in context

It is SHAMEFUL doctors are willing to walk off jobs and put patients lives at risk just so they can control their compensations; furthermore, the idea of limit number of doctors from entering the field so they are irreplaceable, is disgusting. Selfish and conscienceless is not enough describing these greedy doctors. Wish them straight to hell.

Posted in: S Korean government orders doctors back to hospitals See in context

Please let it not be the same as in USA which has the highest spending on healthcare but among the worse in healthcare system. It is not affordable for many people because pharma, hospitals, clinics, and doctors are highly paid. MD in USA is known as key to being rich which is totally against the idea of medicine which is to take care of patients, not poor and bankrupt. Simple demand and supply theory, make it competitive, increase supply to control cost. As long as med. students pass all required tests and certified, the more the better.

Posted in: Why rich families are rich and poor families poor in Japan See in context

Money makes money, money buys power, power protects wealth. Working class conditioned to be thankful for jobs that at best adequate to shelter&feed family. Need security for future? Borrow to send kids to schools. Need some extras? Borrow. The riches are busy making $$$ while the working class are constantly worrying about their future. Solution for beginners, stop being politically correct toward the riches, they exploit hard works of labor through and through. Create wealth tax to fund safety net for the working class and lift the poor out of poverty. Now the riches and ignorant scream, "it is socialist". Got new for y'all, if making working class feel secure about their future and provide poor with minimum shelter&basic need is socialist? SO BE IT.

Posted in: Christmas in China brings glittering decor and foreign influence concerns See in context

It's been a long time all European looks&fashions are the best, consequently, non Caucasian models., actors/actresses alter their natural beauties to look like white folks, which further glamorize European influences. Are many European made themselves look like Asian, black? Where in the world white dominated race glamorize Asian/African holidays to the level of Christmas and more and more Halloween held in some countries in Asia? I do nothing on Christmas but eat ramen, drink palm juice, chow down banana in coconut milk top with sticky sweet rice. Wish y'all peace!

Posted in: Nearly half of young Japanese men in survey have never had a girlfriend; zero-boyfriend women rise too See in context

Comes down to three major causes:

1) High tech/soon to be invaded by AI makes people particularly teenagers accustom to life with computer/Iphone screen

2) Endless cultural&society pressure for well-to-do life while prospects of stable&secured job is progressively hard to obtain.

3) Standard of life according to over exaggerated reality shows and social media

Shall we also add government of, by, and for the people are hard to find nowadays.

Good luck to us all as we are rapidly aging...

Posted in: UK unveils tough new rules designed to cut immigrant numbers See in context

Few if any are brave to admit what truly is the root cause of immigration. To solve immigration issues instead of making it more expensive, which only favor the well-to-do, rich&developed countries should address issues of poverty, dictatorship, climate, safety&security which cause people to search better life at where they're. Solve problems on own backyards only create corruption&bureaucracy.

Posted in: Taiwan's Golden Horse awards sees return of Chinese stars See in context

My comment might be infamous but am disappointed Asian particularly stars and rich&famous have their god given natural beauty altered by surgery and artificially enhanced to resemble European mainly nose&eyes. It's practically impossible to distinguish movie starts since they mostly look alike especially Korean starts. Over many decades we are influenced by beauty of European features while don't appreciate Asian looks. We must promote and glamorize Asian look to get away from desire of nose&eye. Time to promote Asian beauty! Be proud of who we are, beautiful people.

Posted in: S Koreans sit for key exam as flights halted to limit distraction See in context

Success the OLD FASHION WAY. It is traditional hierarchical classes or separation between elite and ordinary. Limit opportunities for success, self esteem, hope&dream for those may not afford EDU to prepare for the not so meaningful exam, and worse yet, persons livelihoods may be decided by a few hours of pressured/constrained time to show what a person is capable of. Outdated and need to be re examed for good of society. Also, this stupid exam caused suicide and severe depression from failures for life.
