Lacoste was worn by a lot of young posers in UK in early 80's, they were also popular for a while with Yuppies. I am not a fan of Lacoste clothing and find it overpriced for what it is.

The economy needs these started for now at least. Importing fuel is hurting the recovery and making things more expensive in Japan. There are risks connected to almost all methods need to generate power. Until safe and cheap alternatives are available Nuclear power is the best option for Japan.

If you honestly believe and trust that these politicians are making these laws for the benefit of the public then i do feel sorry for you.
Of course these things can change into being against demonstrating or speaking ill of the government. Governments and their elite friends are masters of manipulation. For example, look how many Americans supported the war against Iraq and believed the link with Bin Laden and that Saddam was a threat, he had WMD, nukes etc.
Hate speech laws can easily be used as an excuse to monitor (spy) on people to make sure they are not breaking the law and repress free speeeh, don't believe the hype.
Posted in: Japan should prohibit all propaganda advocating racial superiority or hatred that incites to discrimination, hostility or violence as well as demonstrations intended to disseminate such propaganda.

People can define anything to fit what they want, it doesn't mean it is correct or fair. This world is turning mad, there was a lot more discrimination and intolerance in days gone by and these laws were not needed. They are used as part of the control mechanism it is a clever tool. What decent person would not want laws against these awful things? These awful things can turn into things like demonstrating on speaking ill of the government. Don't believ these things are done for the good of the general public, it don't work that way anymnore.

The problem i have with this who decides what is hate speech? These type of laws are easily open to abuse by politicians. In Britain people have been jailed for what the government has decided are offensive tweets and Facebook posts. These have usually been just one tweet or post whilst drunk. It's easy to say these laws are needed to protect people but they are so open to abuse.

Whenever questioned this way you always come out with a recent personal experience to prove your point, i am dubious of this and a single example is meaningless.
There are no food banks in Japan, there are not CCTV's everywhere. There is barley any street robberies or violent crime. Japan is a great place for men and women, Japanese and foreign. As long as you are honest and prepared to do your best you will generally be fine.Nowhere is perfect but Japan is better than the West as long as you can remove your Western prejudices.

You don't see what these women do as you are in full time employment and they can't see what you do during the day, for all they know you lounge around all day doing as little as possible.
As usual you blame the Japanese women for not wanting out of life what you want. This is nit the West and your values are not the norm in Japan. Japan is a fairer and more peaceful country than the West, let;'s not have this destroyed by copying the West and destroying the family unit. As i stated before this is all about creating debt slaves, compare the debt versus savings in the West in Japan. Look at the facts people and it becomes obvious.
falseflagsteveJul. 25, 2014 - 03:34PM JST
Usual rubbish from the elite politicians that want everyone a debt slave from cradle to grave. Sometimes i think these morons hate the family unit, hate families being together, hate the mother to child bond. This is all about increasing the amount of workers into the workplace which means more demand for the same amount of jobs. This means salaries fall for the average person as we see in the West and profits increase which are distributed to a few shareholders. Also there will be some nice donations and gifts to the politicians who make this into law.
This is the third wave of feminism, more like the Third Reich, it's a joke and families and especially kids suffer more and more worldwide by this which is terribly sad.

No worries if the population declines worldwide. Less pollution, more resources and less hunger. Population growth cannot carry on forever and nor can many of our natural resources.
Posted in: Population decline is caused by a decrease in the number of women in their 20s and 30s, and the outflow of young people to Tokyo. We need to implement measures to stem the low birthrates and over-concentration of people in Tokyo.

Timtak is 100% correct regarding this. Most people here post with Western views and believing that those ways are the best. We don't see a push for 50% males in nursing or teaching as more females choose those jobs. We also do not see a push for more female construction workers as mostly males choose these jobs. It is a matter of choice which politicians and the elite should butt out of.
Abe and business leaders want more women in the workplace to increase GBP which does not mean a better lifestyle for the masses just a small amount of already very rich.

It is also women who do this and they are most likely to get away with at as they attract less suspicion.. These types are attracted to places where they can abuse kids. Day care, Kindergartens are their new favourite places. Good places for them to abuse and take images with victims too young to understand what is going on. This is widespread and getting worse in all countries.
Men and women who do this need to be taken away from society if experts decide they are a danger, and by that i mean some should be locked away untl they can present no danger at all.

Yes i recall it well but i was referring to a recent incident in which a Liverpool player acted in a vile manner, there was no issue with and Palace players behaviour during the match on 12 September 1989 and the Palace supporters kept singing all through the match as usual.

Bloke probably has mental health issues and anyone who sticks up for his behaviour should be ashamed. He is a liability and a terrible role model for kids.
Mind you he gave me as a Palace fan and many others round the world a good giggle when he bawled his eyes out like a baby after the Palace comeback of the year ending the Scousers dream of winning the title, PMSL!

This is what modern feminism is, getting everyone working and lowering salaries for others. Of course part time workers like this pay no tax and they don't have the protection of full time workers thus saving Sagawa money. This is modern business and modern feminism going hand in hand.
It is oh so obvious worldwide just not in this instance that only the blind or those with an agenda cannot see.

Savil e could get away with this because of his connections. He was close to Blair and Thatcher and spent time with them as a guest at Chequers. He hosted Prince Charles as a guest at his Scottish home, and was a "fixer" for the Royals, in his own words he would "get things for them". All this is in the public record but seems out of bounds for most the mainstream media.
