Bad karma for the perpetrators, indeed.
I would have hoped that a common Buddhist tradition would be a unifying element for Korean, Japanese and Chinese cultures, but no.

While anti Korean racism is reprehensible, that fact that there are so many pro Pyongyang schools for indoctrination of children, within Japan, is certainly troubling.

I alwats go there each time I visit Japan from my home in NYC, and enjoy the bargains. I also got back from a vacation in France last month, but was appalled by their rip off prices for tourists, $8 bottles of water with food that was uniformly overpriced and crappy. Yes, France is geared toward touristd, which is where the term "tourist trap" comes from. For its good food and great attitudes, Japan wins my tourism dollars, hands down.

Its time for Japan to stop bankrolling the UN, having contributed far too much in proportion to Japans voting right (and denied seat on the Security Council). Stop being the UN's patsy. If you want to give to help others, give directly, not to the corrupted cleptocrats.

Darpa's research gave us the internet. Was that not well spent money? Yet now, Google, creature of the 'net, has been ordered to erase bad memories from their servers, by EU edict, for and by people who prefer to be unknown. Irony. Anyway, this is another great step forward, but to where does is lead. What will be the new creature as a result of these discoveries?

Ill mannered men do no good
nor help the LDP's many worthy causes, with this nonsense.
Grow up, lads.
Learn how to be respectful and maybe others who notice such things would respect you.
One of the quickest way to lose your seat in politics is to be offensive to ladies worthy of respect.
That's my 2 yens worth.

Japan itself was formed by "climate change", seismic ans tectonic shifting. So what? What legislation by man can alter the course of the wind, the movement of the earth itself? Trying to call opponents of myopic "climate change legislation", knaves explaining away something so obvious to "believers", is in itself beyond belief. Seas rise and fall, continents move, fire spews from undersea volcanoes. Quick, pass a law!
