    If Republicans are worried about illegal immigrants taking away jobs, why is it they don't want to go after the companies that employ them?

    You have to be a LEGAL immigrant on a temporary visa in order to overstay. You are not illegal until you overstay, if you have a visa.

    the act of conspiracy would be a punishable offence even when a crime is not committed

    I think criminalizing all thought is the way to go. It's thinking about stuff that causes most problems. Evidence is so intangible anyway...

    I've never really understood cosplay completely, but I thought the goal was to enjoy designing and wearing costumes as a form of performance art, and not to measure the degree to which geekish businessmen were aroused.

    So... when will they have drone delivery to your table? You know someone has to be designing it right now...just don't get up out of your seat too quickly.

    Pay the storytellers and scriptwriters more. Cut the special effects budget. Then, you might have something people want to watch. Special effects are fine, but not if they are more noticeable than the the storyline.

    I could tell you the prefectures that have suffered decline population at a prefecture level, but that is only the first layer. Within each prefecture, the impact is uneven. 

    The topic is islands that have been depopulated. Everyone knows that young people have left the countryside.

    Just to amplify Zones2surf's point, "depopulation" refers to declines in population.

    Depopulate doesn't mean just decline in population. it means, "To reduce sharply the population of, as by disease, war, or forcible relocation."

    Less populated is a static description and does not convey the idea that these areas were previously far more populated and now much less so. Thus depopulated.

    Okay, now I'm curious. Which islands are depopulated, and where do you find those statistics. I can't think of any islands that were densely populated and now are not, at least not any more so than other places in Japan.

    Depopulated? So... were the citizens of the island removed for some reason?

    I’d rather have Trump get elected and secure our borders, then him trying to deport them all and not get elected.

    He won't get elected and if he did, he would neither secure our borders nor deport anyone. He's just telling you what you want to hear and giving you no explanation of how he's going to do anything. He has no plan.

    Helen Aguirre Ferré, director of Hispanic communications for the RNC, called the meeting a “game-changing” opportunity.

    So... is she a rapist, a thief, or a murderer? Those are the only categories of Hispanic people available in the Trump brain from what I hear.

    And just so you know, the center of the quakes, several of them, is Sanriku Oki, which is the center of the tsunami quake. Not that that means anything unless there are a lot more of them.

    I disagree with most here.Knowing that eating pork was against his beliefs, they should not have served it to him. It's easy just to serve fruit and vegetables.

    Toshiko, Long range planning is rare. New York and California have put some effort into trains and buses, and New York City has managed to have subways and buses that meet needs. California, from what I understand, is working on that.

    Long distance trains, which is what I think you are referring to, are mostly on Amtrak, and there are some nice experiences to be had, but it doesn't compare well with Japan for timeliness, cleanliness, or regularity. http://www.usa-by-rail.com/ Of course, the USA is a lot bigger, and includes terrain that Japan doesn:t have to deal with, but still, there is no real plan to improve the situation.

    I think it's fine. The trains will get to their destination faster, and will make money in the long run. I think Japan does a much better job with long range planning than the US, where nothing happens if it can't produce money within a year. Outside of a few large cities, the US has NO plan for dependable, high speed, public transportation. Every thing they do have is a joke.

    The difference between Hillary and Trump is that if Hillary got us into a war, it would be because she had set out to do so. With Trump, it would be because he would say something "sarcastic" that sounded like he was going to bomb somebody. He is unfit to be a human being, much less a president.

    Whatever. If he went private forever it would be better, I think.

    This is a very weird position for Japan in particular to be pushing.
