Japan is in denial as to the number of sexual predators here. One only needs to view some of the graphic content in the comic books

There's a camera on you everywhere you go. This is making me feel uneasy, uncomfortable. Please stop it!!

You have to make it a campaign.
Lets take the word P.A.R.K
Capitalism is Japan's main religion. It is this religion that is encroaching on kids habitat. EVERYTHING is a business now. If it's still free then we have to make a buck off it. You want to have a good time? You want a place to sit?
I'm making a company to buy all bench space in the city. Like 24 Times I'll add one of those gizmos that raises up or locks you in after you sit-down. Then you need to use your PASMO to pay after you have rested.
Japan will do it. Japan will do it under Abe's administration cause this country has decided that bottom-feeding is a good thing.

Open mouth and insert foot. The more you comment the more you expose yourself as being prejudice towards African-Americans.
The black community is out of control?? Pfffft. Yeah everybody is running around like a chicken that has had it head chopped off. "Oh look at that!" "They are like savages to you, aren't they".
NONE OF THIS IS TRUE!!!
These people are GUILTY of only one thing.....poverty. Inner city people have it bad. Even for police it's capitalism. They are poor, they don't have money to fight all these cases. Society fines these people, stacks up interest on anything late and then calls them criminals when they can't pay.
Life expectancy for an African American was greater in the Vietnam war than it is in the U.S TODAY!!
Soldiers who survived the Iraq war came back to the ol U.S of A to get shot by some cop!
U.S: Veteran: You shot me!!!!! What the hell is that for?
Police Officer: "That was for coming back to the U.S"
Bring back Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions because nothing has changed.

Cheap prices today means a sacrifice in the skill level of domestic maritime engineers.

You seem mad? You mad bro? My comments were spot on. Flash in the pan. That's exactly what happened. Give the public just enough to get excited and go shopping. Uniqlo ready to have a big sale. Buy anything Nishikori!! I've got to have that Uniqlo shirt he was wearing. NOT!!
Nobody was interested in Nishikori a few days ago. They were too busy watching the Men National Soccer team get spanked in Sapporo.
Why is it when a Japanese athlete starts to win that suddenly he / she belongs to Japan?
Please don't act like you know me. I'm neutral when it comes to tennis. I don't even play the sport. Didn't matter to me who won

Today I want to introduce you to a new idiom which you can use quite often with Japanese pro athletes.
"Flash in the Pan"
There's no need to get excited or to put the champagne - excuse me - Sake on ice.

What's wrong with a African-American actor in this character?
Cleopatra was playing by a Caucasian woman so why not this? Jesus Christ was played a Caucasian actor so why not this?
Soon Captain America will be played by an African American.
One of the world's greatest golfers was black.
THE PRESIDENT of the United States is African American. Morgan Freeman played the President as well.
Denzel Washington should be fine. He's got grit and swag and that's what it takes for this role. Not how well the actor can sip a cup of British tea.

The full blown propaganda machine is on OVERdrive here.
Nobody here knows the full story. When you have 2 Stars like this guy you are very mixed up in politics.
Like a mob, you want someone to throw rocks at. Someone to spit on till your appetite is sated.
The truth is you'll never be satisfied. Some posters are already asking about the others. Can we feed them to the lions too?
This guy is a scapegoat, a patsy. He shouldn't be on trial here or anywhere.

Abe is destroying this once balanced economy. Look at the bailouts......free money......OMG there it is. Lets raise taxes too.. ohhhhhh and the proof is here.
I doubt this will be the last picture we see like this.
As Tokyo sucks all the money up and deposits that into it's coffers there will be NO baby boom.
No baby boom means......you have to import workers. Eventually those same workers will demand rights and marketing will have to change in order to attract the money of this new demographic. End of story....we don't want to shop at places like the one depicted in this picture. We want IMAX and a more international scene.
Old domestic Japan is going to die and Abe is your Kevorkian.
