There is only one remedy for this situation. Men must accuse any women touching them on the train. They should shout in a loud voice accusing the woman of touching them. Take them to court and demand that they pay compensation for the getting them embarrassed in public.

I think Toru had a great idea regarding our Marines in Okinawa. The Pentagon spokesperson should re-think DOD stance regarding prostitutes. In many European countries prostitution is legally controlled and the GIs took advantages of its services. I think a "Pink House" should be around each Marine base, them boys sure need it.

Toru, now you can campaign to get these comfort women paid. With your huge support base, you should have no trouble in getting the Diet to pass the compensation law.

I can't understand why some countries, especially the Aussies, gave the go-ahead for Japan to join in the TPP talks. Here was a chance to get some concessions from the Japan to at least stop whaling. This was a missed opportunity for the world.

It seems that the US, Japan, and South Korea is all set for the North to lite up the sky. The three allies should use this excuse to bomb the DPRK back into the stone age. Somebody need to teach that little runt not to play on the world stage and cry wolf.

Corporate Japan is way behind other economies in providing child care for their employees. If you want to keep trained workers, you can do it less cost-wise by providing child and ancillary care than hiring and training new employees every time a veteran leaves the work place.

Anyone can ride in any car. It is only a suggestion for "women only"; there is no law that forbids riding in a certain car.

Of course The Japanese are harvesting whales for food!!! Any idiot Japanese Researcher can tell you that!!! Japanese Researchers are all idiots because they have to kill the whales every year to find out the same thing for the last 50 years that they already knew about.

Of course it does. Only an idiot will wait for the first nuke to hit and then try to defend itself. The NK nuke site should have been bombed after they first test.

Me thinks that Aso will introduce the old custom of abandoning old folks on mountain tops and forests in the winter to die off. It seems that the government can't afford to pay out old-age pensions anymore.

If students failed at lab experiment, they should be given a failing grade; that is why there is a grading system. The teacher should be sacked and never allowed to teach school again. If he is allowed to stay, his next punishment for failed lab experiments could be shopping off fingers, an ear, etc. Where do they find these stupid teachers?

What is there to talk about? If you have control over rocks, you own it. Just ask the Russians about the Northern Territory issues. The PRC navy isn't strong enough to force the issue. Anyone can look at the map of China and see that the PRC aircraft carrier can be bottled-up in Dailan.

The marines need to release the pressure of training and living in a foreign country. US military should open up a whore house on bases to keep these marines, airmen and sailors occupied.

NRA shooting from the hips again! I ain't paying additional property taxes to fund for guards at schools. If NRA is so concerned, maybe the membership would provide this service free of charge.

You dropped the ball woman. You should know better than to trust first impression in crisis. Go out quietly, get a univ teaching job and write your book.
