Many other countries import their energy and have done for decades! To blame this as the reason for deficit is absurd. Exports are dropping because Japan is no longer producing goods like it did. Sellable goods. 24 months of decline and the government are not concerned?

Gov't aims to curb iPhone influence, why?
From the article it appears they believe Japanese companies can not compete and they want to change the rules to stop this and customer choice. Japan's cell phone net work is already "unique" as phones bought in Japan can be used no where-else and phones from other countries can not be used here. Again the consumer suffers to protect companies that are not innovative or relavent globally. With the lowering of the yen it's in danger of just making parts competing with China for business.

Children die in school pools every year, put them 10+ years latter in a natural environment with even less supervision than at school...... disaster. Didn't Prefectures import life guards from Australia, and other countries? Couldn't they teach at schools unfettered?

There should be no window! Why this idea of a time limit? If proof is found than it's found what on earth has a time limit on justice. The mothers could be sued for spending the husbands money on their illegitimate child. A man can be held responsible for producing offspring out side of marriage? It's actually another example of Japanese politicians just being unable to pass laws that are competent or relevant to 2014. Guess they are too busy doing......?

Drunken guards, decomposing bodies, and looters, welcome to 2014. Oh and the fact that shooting down a innocent plane. Are these people developed at all? Apes have a better sense of normality.

It's not official until regestereded at city hall, with a Hunko. Totally inappropriate way to regester families. Stalkers get access and abused mums shun registering leaving children outside the system. The system needs to be changed. It's ridiculous to expect a cockholed father to be responsible for the offspring of a wife who has no respect for him.

Sam if it's not the governments responsibility to ensure its citizens are safe, educated has access to medical treatment and food, guess we don't need a Government at all. For the 3rd biggest economy it's a disgrace.

Russian Foreign affairs minister is on holidays as are his deputies! That's what the Australian Government has been told. Recordings have been released with a Pro-Russian commander boasting of downing what he thought was a Ukrainian plane, The EU investigators were allowed on site for 70 minutes but were told by hooded armed pro-Russian militia to leave. A man called Igor Stelkove has claimed responsibility a leader of pro-Russian militia. Russia claims the aircraft should not have been flying on this route. Apparently it was the air rafts fault?

Isreal killed 4 terrorists aged between 8 and 11 who were building a sand castle on the beach yesterday, the million dollar smart weapon used certainly was not fooled by their playfully nature. You go Isreal there are more children you really need to get.

Ah, men rely on women to run the house, educate their children wash their clothes shop for food, look after the budget. But heaven forbid they can be a manager? Women out perform boys at school, University. But apparently just are Not able to do the same in the work place.
