Becauae Toyota vehicles take a licking and keep on ticking. I've owned GM, Ford, Chrysler, Audi, VW, MB, Nissan, Mazda and Toyota, the best value for my money was always the Toyota. If I was in this middle east on any side of the confrontation that exists a Toyota would last longer in that environment and can be repaired more easily and parts are more available. For the US government to ask Toyota and waste time doing so is asinine.

I would prefer that the goverment implant RFID chips like my dog has under his skin. People with dementia who wander off could be easily identified, your medical information can speed up emergency health interventions, speedier checkout at retail stores etc. I would also include retina scanning be mandatory as well as DNA sampling to assist in tracking down criminals and early detection of developing a serious illness or a deadly disease and obtain proactive treatment. The my number card system is a necessary step to assimilate necessary information into a database that is useful on many levels in a society with millions of people.

This plan would work if Japanese people would take the time to learn English so they can communicate with the outside world. Of all the countries I have visited and or lived in, Japan and Italy have the least amount of people who try to speak English. I would love to have a Filipino upstairs maid in one of those cosplay French maid outfits going around dusting and rearranging the throw pillows on the couch or bed, woohoo

I predicted this a month ago. Weeks ago I said that inside the mass of migrants/immigrants/invasionists would be people who would infiltrate europe and maybe even be terrorists. I was branded by jt moderators as a bigot and deleted. Now look at the facts and was I wrong, no. The jt moderators are not mature enough and aware of how the world works to hold those positions inmho.

Terrible story and i really feel badly for the son and family. We had a similar problem with my mom who asked for a simple cremation to reduce costs. We decided to give her a Viking funeral and went to home depot and bought lots of 2 X 4 boards and built a funeral pyre on top of an old skiff we bought. We placed her corpse on it and poured a few cases of Bacardi 150 proof over her (she really loved rum and cokes) and threw in a dozen limes for good measure and towed the skiff out to sea where I fired a flare gun onto it and it burned for hours mostly because of the fact that she was embalmed by a local alcoholic mortician who ran out of funds for formaldehyde and had to substitute cheap grain liquor but it sure did the job. In fact the flames were so intense that several container ships mistook her burning funeral pyre for a lighthouse and ran aground due to a mistaken change in course. I guess the lesson here is to dispose of your loved ones in a socially and legal manner.

My 5 year old logitech wireless laser mouse uses one AA battery maybe once every 4 months and I use it every day all day long. When it is not being moved it hibernates so what is the big deal with this new japanese toy of a mouse. I agree wired mouses are a pain in fact I bought my first Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse in 1998 and my wife still uses it on her pc daily, made In Indonesia too. When something is not broken don't try to fix it or be a slave to fashion

I object to this statue in San Francisco because I think that it discriminates the Japanese American population and i8s irrelevant because the perpetrators of the comfort women issue are in their late 80's and 90's and this should not be an issue anymore. Is German asked every year to apologize for its part in the WWI massacre of 6 million + Jews?
I just got deleted by a JT moderator for speaking the absolute truth about the city of San Francisco and its sill left wing policies that don't make sense in terms of the whole picture. What amazes me is that some twenty some year old moderator has the ability to censor my comments when they are barley old enough to make sense of this problem.

I almost bought a Passat a few years ago but opted for the Camry hybrid and love it. Looks like Germany is having a bad week. Maybe VW should recall all those vehicles and refund the owners and get with Herr Merkel and give those cars to all the migrants so that they don't have to walk or take busses or trains to Munich.

Any country has the right to self defense even if that means proactive offensive. Japan needs to defend itself and the only way it can is to develop a military again that can perform that function. Japan has had two hands tied behind it's back since WWII and now Japan should have the right to arm and defend itself.

This is not immigration, not migration either, it is entering countries with no visa, job waiting and claiming that they are in fear for their lives which is true but they sure are heading for those countries with the best benefits in mass.
Germany and Sweden should have to pay the other countries for the problems their open door policy has caused now and for the next generation or two.
Why is Germany so vocal about being such a humanitarian country? Is there still a lot of self imposed guilt about what they did to Europe twice in the last century?
Before telling millions of people to "come on in", they, meaning all of European countries that created this mess, should have created quotas, rules/laws and a system instead of opening up the flood gates and cutting off the handle to close that floodgate off.
Watch the next election in Germany and Herr Merkel will be out of office and maybe kicked out of Germany too

Temporary asylum visas, mandatory photographing, fingerprinting and complete background checks and limit their stay unless they get a permanent job, learn the language, take and pass the tests for language, cultural knowledge, pass the Japanese requirements for a high school diploma and become a Japanese citizen. No anchor babies and swift deportation back to wherever they came from if involved in any criminal activities during the temporary asylum status period.

These migrants want a free ride from europe. I think that if you photograph and fingerprint every one of these migrants and put them in a camp then find them a job matching their skills then if they quit or get fired, deport them is the way to go

I don't care if the world thinks that the USA is weak towards the Muslim migrant situation going on in Europe now. Even if the USA and coalition countries caused more issues, it is countries like Germany and Sweden with their stupid immigration policies they advertised that is causing the flow of these migrants towards Europe. They should have shut up or told the migrants earlier on to go to some Muslim friendly country and not enter the Christian EU. Germany has I believe another agenda here.

If Europe does not close borders and establish some system that all European countries can use immediately to control this overwhelming migration situation they are going to be a Muslim third world dump real soon. Germany's government is trying to load the EU with what and why. Germans are not stupid and they knew exactly what is/was going to happen with their open amnesty policies. OOPS we made we mistake but we want all our good neighbors to take in these migrants so we can all sit around bonfires at night and hold hands singing praises to allahahahah.

Easy solution. First post on TV, Radio and newspaper explain what types of 119 calls are OK and what are not and include what the cost is for calling in non emergency type calls. Tell Japanese residents that if they don't understand the system they will receive a 50,000 yen bill for each and every mistaken call.
