    Three teens act like fools, and the Right determines the whole world is unsafe.

    When did conservatives become such pearl-clutching woosies?

    Having lived in and near Osaka for nearly a decade, let me assure you, 200kg is a respectable, but by no means, a noteworthy stash...

    nearly six months after he was arrested on charges of leaving a Bible in a nightclub

    North Koreans, of course, were shocked:

    "We have nightclubs?!"

    More defense of the indefensible: "It ain't porno, cause theyz not nekked!"

    Now, I'll type real slow, so y'all can get this:

    Picture the following image:

    A POV shot of a nine-year old girl in a bikini, on her knees in front of a man. The girl has a banana in her mouth, and some wiped cream on her lips and face.

    No one is naked. And its porn. With a child.

    If you understand that, then your argument that just 'cause no girl is naked on the junior idol site, that means it ain't porno, you are fool, or a liar, or scumbag.

    I'm talking about freedom of the press, and the data says, that Japan and the ROK are essentially the same on that count.

    Your focusing on this instance and this instance only is poor thinking. It is, in fact, the kind of poor thinking that leads to damn-the-data, full speed ahead nonsense so indicative of much of what is wrong in Japan.

    Stop following the headlines. Think for yourself.,

    Once again, we see the terrible Republican display of partisanship over patriotism. The skriech and gnash their teeth: TRAVEL BAN!!!!!!

    A travel ban wouldn't work since patients trying to get to the U.S. would simply fly to Paris, London, Frankfurt, or some other big city in Europe and then buy a ticket on a different airline to the U.S., (known as "broken travel") making it impossible to track them and inspect them at entry.

    But that is too difficult for most conservatives to understand.

    So the Republicans begin demanding it, making it a campaign issue, and Republican-oriented media push the idea that the President is asleep at the switch for all it is worth, even though a President Romney would undoubtedly have listened to the same experts and drawn the same conclusion. E

    For them, everything is about politics, all the time, even if doing so might kill more Americans.

    No honor. No shame.

    Yes, i have looked at the data, but that is beside the point and is irrelavent.

    Data is irrelevant. So, you form your beliefs on emotions and how you wish the world to be.

    Nice to know.

    Reporters w.out borders is a different group than the American based one you source.

    Regardless of the source, the salient point is simple:

    Japan and ROK have about the same ratings of free press. Both are heading towards less freedom of the press in the past five years.

    "...say goodbye to Nabokov's Lolita (which was in fact banned in many places not soon after it first appeared in print)"

    Ah, the old slippery slope fallacy.

    Have you seen it? It has children. Kids, Not 16 year olds. 14, 11, 9.

    And it aims to sexually arouse.

    That's child porn.

    Well, I checked out ジュニアアイドル. That was unpleasant. 14, 11, 9 year olds in bikinis and cos play, sucking lolly pops.

    ジュニアアイドル is straight up child porn and should be banned.

    I always let them in, insisted they come, begged them to come in. Then, I'd blabber away in complete gibberish: Japanese/English/Yiddish/Tongues.

    Eventually, they sent round a fellow fluent in English. I tried to convert him. To Scientology.

    My male in-laws were/are all salarymen. Relatively speaking, they had/have it pretty good as far as compensation and material well-being. Of course, they work(ed) like slaves. I've gotten to know them and their friends fairly well. They are nearly all-right, though.

    And I mean right, as in right wingers.

    That is the saddest thing about their lot: they slave(d) away for a system that has incrementally abandoned them. And they turn to nationalist propaganda to explain their woes.

    Sad.

    Well, I've read through the entire thread. The following jumps out: lots of claims are made about ROK's relative freedom of the press, with no data to support it. Choosing one data point to make a conclusion is like sticking your head out the window right now and, because it is cool and rainy, determining the climate is a temperate rain forest region.

    The data does not suggest ROK is like China or North Korrea, nor is worse than Japan when it comes to the freedom of the press. Here is the data from the France-based Press Freedom Index:
