Nothing wrong with changing the constitution. Some changes are necessary. The question is just how to change it and in which direction. Of course it will become more conservative and nationalistic, because that's what Japan and the Japanese people are. The current constitution was never a japanese one.
Face it people, Japan is not a democratic country. Japan is ruled by one party since after the war. Okay, there are elections, but East Germany had elections too.

Germany is always good with words, but if it comes to put action into words they are running away for safety. Look what they did after Fukushima happened.

Since the Newtown shooting, more than 1500 US citizens were killed by guns in the US. It is maybe the most dangerous place on earth and the governments should give travel warnings.

I am sure the Nuclear Regulation Authority will soon have another chairman. Somebody LDP approved.

Not only asian women were forced into prostitution. Dutch and British women were also forced into it. This is a fact not known to most japanese. So many japanese were suprised when during the 2010 WC in South Africa Dutch Supporters jeered when they played the japanese national anthem!!

@ Mr Sushi, one reason those place would not be allowed is that you have animal rights group like HRS who would rally against it. Petting zoos are not the same because in those place they have an animal friendly environment and laws which controls those places. I have nothing against a place where people can interact with rabbits but it should be done in a rabbit friendly environment.

Not a good thing!! Those kind of "shops" promote impulse buying!! People come there and take photos of those cute rabbits even using flash, which can be very harmful for the eyes of the rabbits. Also they keep them most of the time in too small cages. They are not spayed or neutered. When they are out, they are in an enviorment which offers no entertainment for them no hiding houses or tunnels to play.
Places like this would not be allowed in the US or western Europe!! A very sad story!! For more information on rabbits google for "House Rabbit Society"!!

He is such a looser. Instead of trying to succeed in Europe, he is running back to Mama. Okubo should fire him from the National Team!

I heard that they produce their stuff in Shenzhen a chinese province which is totally controlled by military and no one has access to it. It's worse than Tibet. Uniqlo pays to the chinese government and the workers don't get anything. It's a sweat shop work. Don't buy from them. Although their cloth are highly toxicated but because there is no independent customer protection organisation in Japan, nobody knows.

It just costs 12000Yen to each citizen to buy the election. And they are so stupid not to realize it's their own money!! I gave up hope on this people long time ago.
