Posted in: Obama to act next week on gun background checks See in context

The SUPPLY of guns in America must be curtailed, that is the only solution that will have rock solid results in the fullness of time. Go after the firearms manufacturers, no matter how long it takes to bring them to their knees.

Posted in: Abe unveils 3 new arrows for reviving economy See in context

Unfortunately, the situation in Japan is becoming like that in Russia, where even though people are allowed to vote, there is no real electable opposition. This in fact creates what I call "elected dictators", who stay in power far too long and end up doing more harm than good for the average citizen. The long decline of Japan really started with the stock market top at the end of 1989, and there is no end in sight yet. Abe is simply a reflection of a country in long term decline, one that will most likely continue for another 10 or 20 years, or until the stock market reaches a level near the old 1989 high point once again.

Posted in: S&P downgrades Japan's credit rating See in context

The posters here who believe downgrades in Japan's credit rating will not have serious consequences are only deluding themselves. Being the "world's most indebted nation" will have very serious consequences in the fullness of time, no matter what you may hope for or want to believe. It is far better to face up to it and get ready for more bad times than trying to avoid the reality of a very serious situation.

If Donald Trump should ever become the president of the USA, it's degradation and downfall would be complete.

Mainland China will most likely never thank the USA for liberating them from Japanese forces. Let us not forget that eastern China would most likely still be a province of Japan were it not for the Americans.

Posted in: City in Niigata drops milk from school lunches See in context

The fact is a LOT more people are lactose intolerant than we believe, because sometimes even doctors with very good reputations do not diagnose lactose intolerance correctly. A famous case was talk show host Morton Downey Jr. who went to doctor after doctor seeking a cure for his stomach problems, but they could not figure out what was wrong with him. Then he decided to stop drinking milk for awhile, and discovered that was the source of his problems. After hearing him explain his case on television, I decided to stop drinking milk, and just as was the case with him, my stomach problems disappeared. That was almost 30 years ago, and I have never gone back to drinking cows milk. A lot of people with stomach and bowel problems do not connect it with drinking milk. It's a fact not an opinion.

It would be far better to fully apologize once and for all, and then Japan and it's neighbors could move on and spend more time on all the other important issues that have to be settled between them.

It is a shame to see Japan at this point increasingly denying their own past. Heartbreaking actually.

Posted in: Britain may turn into Europe's most politically unpredictable country See in context

The only reason America survived the Democrats great recession is they lost their full control, effectively rendering the US government powerless.

The only problem with that sentence is that it was the Republicans great recession, as the democrats did not come into power until after it was in full swing.

Posted in: From Japan, the joy of minimalism at home See in context

Sure, try to get rid of your unnecessary clutter and objects, but this is easier said than done, especially for those who are poor or relatively poor. In that case, there is always the fear of not being able to buy new things.

There should be a rule where each successful fall earns the skater a heavier penalty.

I totally agree. The crazy scoring is why I left the sport after being a fan for more than 15 years.

Posted in: Hello Kitty not a cat, has never been: Sanrio See in context

As far as Mickey Mouse not being considered a mouse, that is incorrect. I grew up during the Mickey Mouse craze with the original Mickey Mouse watches and the Disney show on television with Annette Funicello, and my friends and I and the whole neighborhood considered him to be a mouse! So no matter what anyone says, "Hello Kitty" is obviously a cat!

I agree that President Obama is too slow to react in critical situations, and then of course things start getting out of hand by the time he responds. He could be living in fear of making mistakes and ending up like Bush with his bad reputation. The Middle East is a mess and will stay a mess for a very long time, but is doing nothing really an option at this point? And do not forget that Mr. Putin helped to build the Islamic State with his stubborn support of Mr.Assad in Syria from the beginning of the revolution when the overwhelming majority of the citizens wanted him to go. Then of course the rest is history and radicals took over.

Posted in: We're living in an age when anyone can become a stalker See in context

If they say no, there's a reason for it, and pursuing that person further constitutes stalking and harassment. If they're interested in you, they will say yes and you can form a relationship. A person's mother doesn't really factor into the equation.

If I had followed your advice, I would never have had my daughter. Asking twice does not constitute stalking or harassment.

Posted in: We're living in an age when anyone can become a stalker See in context

A very dangerous line of thinking that leads to these problems. Legally and morally, when a woman says no, the man must respect it and look elsewhere. It's game over.<<

I am talking about in the very beginning when you are attracted to someone, at first they may so no. Such was the case with the mother of my daughter, she did not want to go out with me at first and said no, but then later changed her mind and we had a relationship for five years and a beautiful daughter together.

In the very beginning no may not mean no, but after several attempts at a relationship and she still says no, the guy should respect her privacy and back off.

Posted in: China tells Hagel it won't 'stir up trouble' with Japan See in context

China was excluded in 1951 because there were two Chinese governments back then, and no one knew yet if the Chinese government in Taiwan would would try to retake the mainland. It is very difficult to deal with two separate governments claiming the same land. That is how it was in 1951.

Posted in: 3,000 rally against Abe's collective self-defense plan See in context

So let me see if I understand this correctly. In a real "hot war", let's say with China for example, you would want the United States to come to your defense, but you would not want Japan to be able to help the American forces if their help was needed? Am I hearing this correctly? You have got to be kidding, because that is a very childish view and not accepting reality at all! Allies have to have the ability to come to each other's aid if needed, like it or not.

Posted in: 79 U.S. sailors sue TEPCO over radiation during Operation Tomodachi See in context

The radiation rained down on the aircraft carrier suddenly in a heavy rain shower, so they were not prepared for something like that unfortunately. Since TEPCO lied to everybody about the situation in the days following the accident, they are just as responsible for what happened to the people on the ship as well as in Japan.

Posted in: 79 U.S. sailors sue TEPCO over radiation during Operation Tomodachi See in context

Wow, reading the comments here you would think most of the posters and readers were stoned, or at the bare minimum are extremely mixed up about right and wrong! TEPCO is one of the most corrupt and incompetent companies in the world, and you are giving "thumbs up" to comments against the sailors who were the victims! Do you people have no shame? I think I already now the answer, because all you seem to be worried about is your electric bills going up a few hundred yen. Shameful.
