Trump threatened to withdraw the US from NATO and stated that he would not protect NATO countries unless they spent at least 2% of GDP on defense, such as Hungary.

The increase is due to the conflict involving Putin and Ukraine and has nothing to do with Trump, who has been out of office since 2021.

Posted in: Mayor considering increasing Himeji Castle entry fees for overseas visitors See in context

We live close to the castle in Himeji and often visit the park area, but we no longer go inside the castle. We have been inside about 10 times, but the steep stairs are too challenging for us at our age. Himeji receives government subsidies to help maintain the castle.

Insane. ¥4,000 entry fee for foreigners. How will they decide who is a foreigner? Most foreigners will stop visiting if there is a two-tier system. Visitors would have to prove their status every time.

The local economy depends on the visitors to the castle.

Why do the British People reject having Identity Cards/Documents ?

> Surely this would resolve the Illegal Immigration issue - pretty much as it does here in the Island nation of Japan ?

Japanese citizens are not required to carry ID, just like the Brits.

The very notion that we are indeed a community of people who all depend on each other doing our part cooperating and, yes, compromising when necessary, for the greater good of our nation seems to scare/offend you more than the death and destruction of gun violence.

Yeah, if people did that, but we don't live in the 50s and I don't want to live in a country where the left tells me what I can eat, how many guns I am allowed to have, what to wear, what to drive, what I can worship or when, destroying our culture and history, having big government being more apart of my life daily, sick and tired of it, that is not helping the greater good, that is using your political intentions to push your narrative and insisting it is the right and ONLY choice I have.

You don't live in the US.

Their health care each is over 40,000 yen a month, plus their other bills and they struggle to make them and eat.

But you still have to vote for one if you want them to win.

Yes, but I’m voting for the man, not the party, we don’t have a parliamentary system.

You are voting for those who are part of the Republican Party. President and Congress. State elections. There is no possible separation. Every time you vote, you vote for the political system.

Only anarchists are the ones who believe in having no governments.

Well, America has enough of those, been to Oregon recently?

There are no anarchists in power.

I wouldn’t be aligned to any political party or any group, they don’t care about you.

I agree. That is the reason why Populism is sprouting up all over the world, people are tired about the party system.

But you still have to vote for one if you want them to win. Only anarchists are the ones who believe in having no governments.
