Posted in: Japanese mom’s don’t-touch-my-baby-stroller sign stirs up debate See in context

Maybe I wouldn't mind elderly people kindly talking and even touching my baby with care as long as I'm not in hurry, because in Japan, I don't have to worry about kidnapping, however, I agree with her opinion COVID-wise.

Maybe Pu cannot put his fist down because it's too embarrassing to admit that his hypothetical enemy poetry didn't work.

What a surprise for Snowden to be finally granted Russian citizenship - it's so obvious... he should've read Animal Farm.

Posted in: Gov't to pursue U.S. base relocation in Okinawa despite Tamaki's win See in context

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine and some countries' willingness to have a good rapport with Russia, it demonstrates invasions can happen anywhere when we are off guard.

If I were Prime Minister of Japan, I would certainly have no choice but to keep the US base in one of the best defensive locations, which is Okinawa to deter China's invasion of Taiwan, to begin with, then Japan.

Of course, the US is not perfect, they obviously want to keep their influence, but much more reliable than China, Russia, and their allies if I have to choose.

I think some of the small-mid business owners rather want to end their business peacefully if they can afford to close it without debts because they know more investment is required to even just keep going.

On the contrary, those who want to hang in tight need not only financial support but also feasible future planning with reliable data to decide which pass to go, shift, or quit. I wonder if they have access to that kind of support...

I often visit a local fruit shop, selling fruit with bruises at a reasonable price, saying "they are still good to eat, just cut off that part if you mind".

No trouble with my diet and budget.

First and foremost, laws should be for citizens' benefit in democracy.

When more and more people want to embrace LGBTQ as part of our society, what's the point of rejecting their appeals by plausible convictions?

A prominent professor said on TV, "The Japanese government has never conducted verification of efficacy and that's why our economy continues to decline and social security scheme is nearly collapsed even though they have hammered out so many economic packages and relief measures ".

He said "Maybe no sufficient staff for analysis"., but their beurocratic intention appears only for securing budget and power. 

Even if a qualified lawmaker tries to make a change, he/she will be crushed by power-obsessive officials ... only the ones who sweep hot potatoes under the rug can survive.

I'm also quite concerned about this kind of topic as my mom is about the same age, living by herself.

She is lucky enough to have three kids around her place but it's quite depressing to imagine not many senior citizens have no social access.
