Yet still I am NOT satisfied. None of those fat cats have been brought up on charges.

Heavy traffic or poor ETC sensors? Either way, as Prime Minister of Japan he could work harder to resolve both situations.

I'm all for holding women responsible for their crimes but this is WRONG!! That's a GROWN man, epileptic or not. It appears to me that everything in Japan is money making opportunity.
@smithinjapan I respect your opinion and the analogy with drunk drivers is a decent attempt to show she's culpable BUT it's simply NOT the same. If you agree with this it may come back someday to bite you.
You see the real winner is the INSURANCE company that has found a way to duck out of paying. If they don't have to pay then the blame is shifted to the mother who DEFINITELY doesn't have 125 million. So the families who are hoping for compensation won't see a dime of it. They actually lose by being allowing themselves to be distracted from the REAL money bags.
Now, of course, I can't be sure if this is going to play out as I described it but going after dear old mom is NOT going to get you paid. If the families REALLY wanted this then they are just vindictive as ever. Sounds like Ancient Japan when they saw fit to wipe out a families entire line.
Obviously the judge thinks this is okay.

I think it would have been a great idea. It is an example of American Science and Air Superiority. We must always remind our children what happened and more importantly WHY it happened.
There is YOUR-story and there is HIS-tory which usually goes to the WINNER*
*if there is such a thing
Why should we NOT honor the men and women of our armed forces who protected American lives by doing such an unspeakable act. It is truly devastating what happened to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. However, if Japan ever attacked the U.S again I'd give the ol Enola Gay a good waxing and full tank a gas for her payload.
If the Prime Minister of Japan can visit Yasukuni Shrine then we should practice our way as well. Contrary to popular belief we do have a place in our hearts for Japan so we won't celebrate openly too much.

This is just a test case of Japan's jurisdiction. Look at the case in question and then go back to the Daiyo Island dispute where Japan's government asked Google to change Google Earth to reflect their own interests.
Since Google did not comply in that territorial dispute case now these ridiculous cases are popping up.
All of you reading can not be forgetful. Save these articles into folders and then you can connect all the dots.

Hmmm, if America can't protect itself then why would you think Japan is safe?

A rat shut down a nuclear facility. The real rats are no where near this facility. They are ready to raise the price of electricity yet again this summer. You see it when you get your TEPCO bill this summer.
My electricity bill nearly doubled this year. With that said, yes I can believe there are rats at TEPCO.
Is that okay to say or is dissent not allowed?

I'm scared. This reminds me of Jim Carrey's Riddler. He was sucking up everybody's IQ through his TV box.
This technology will record your interests levels providing data to media giants on how to keep you glued to your screen in the future.
Don't assume that they won't. Apple had a third party background recording every site you visited.
Now they want to know exactly what makes,you tick and how to turn you off.
What initially seems li,e a convenience is actually going to make them super rich. You are now the product, this technology is not the product.

China and Korea don't have to anything for Japan. It's folly to try to convince people how someone feels. Speak for yourselves. Of course they feel bad for Japan. Just because they weren't there doesn't mean they don't care.
When was the last time you missed your friends party? Does that mean he doesn't like you? No it doesn't
Let's be truthful and honest with each other. If someone steals your home, car, land or whatever then invites you to their party would you go? No, you would NOT.
That fact is this. The way they have responded is quite normal. Not only that its truthful.
If they had came the media would lie and put a completely different spin on this. Oh look, the fools came. Lets take some more from them.
Would you go back to your wife after she cheats on you? You would? Pfft she'll never respect you.

I can already see Beiber and Lindsay Lohan hooking up. This kid is hanging with the wrong people.
On the other hand I suspect that the record label and publicist have cut him off from his family. Parents know when their children are in trouble. They need to slow him down.
Get back in school and balance this kid out. He's got too much money and too much free time.
But you never know when it comes to drug abuse. I remember Robert Downey Jr. He was able to recover and now he's doing great things. Hopefully Beiber can nip his drug problems in the bud right now. Just might save his life and his future.

These laws do not apply to you!!! What do you mean? I got this crazy chick who keeps knocking at my door.
Sorry but you have to report your address change within 2 weeks according to immigration law.
But there's a clause that says if you fear domestic violence then you don't have to. I have no police report and they didn't take any action so guess what? She will find you.
It's unfortunate but the law is always abused. Divorce lawyers encourage their clients to immediately contact the police if their ex does anything out of the ordinary. So if he's calling to speak to his kids is that stalking? YES,and no. We know its not REAL stalking. A father just wanting to speak to his children is not a stalker. Now if she's a vindictive women then yes he suddenly becomes a stalker.
I won't deny there are nut jobs out there but this law will be be misused. It's all at someone's whim to post-it note someone as a stalker.

If you want to shut down nuclear reactors you have to protest by shutting down the country. You have to get the transit workers and the pilots to protest with you. Taking a walk scheduled on exactly the same day, down the same road is futile. People will just avoid it.
