    Japan's record on food safety leads the world?

    I think Japan is doing better than US. We need to learn some from Japan as far as products labeling. You can go to Oregon Right to Know website to see what we are doing against GMO labeling.

    No, Putin does not care. The satellite image is confirming that he is still moving tons of weapons to the border. And nobody are stopping him. This guy is an evil.

    When do we learn? I avoid all food products made in China. They are not clean and safe.

    The words "health" or "health care" appear nowhere in the Constitution

    bass, you need to understand what I have just said. The Constitution is living. The Bible is living. You need to go and see what the US justices had to say on that. You said you have read it, but I doubt it very seriously.

    Didn't you bring up the militia just a few minutes ago? It seems like you and Global want to insist that healthcare is fudemental right and in the constitution which it is NOT no matter how liberals try to spin the written document and you seem like you are praising at least in some small part socialism, is it not true?

    I get this into your head until you get it. The healthcare is fundamental right guaranteed in the US Constitution. I do not think you have never read it. Or you cannot interpret the implying content.

    Of course, I would blame Obama and the future president that would go buck crazy with the funds, but alas, it might have to take spending a lot of money to reset things and to get the country back on trackUnlike most of the liberals on JT that have a very partisan skewed viewpoint on anything political

    I recommend a great book "Stress Test" written by Timothy Geithner. The book will show you how US was ready to go off the cliff when Obama first took the oval office. This book was highly recommended by Bill Gates.
    Hope you read it and understand how Obama saved the country from going under.

    I guess Japanese OYAJI are just too weak and they want to keep Japanese women weak and helpless in society. It has something to do with a self esteem issue here. They want to control women. It is a threat if women become too independent and powerful.

    As a matter of fact, this Japanese model is not a healthy. Both men and women need to be independent , interdependent and an equal partner to each other in society.

    In the US, professional strong men love and respect strong women. Strong men have a strong self esteem image themselves and there is no need to control issue here. We love and enjoy to maximize the potential of others' success. We want everyone to succeed. We want everyone to excel. We want everyone to pursuit the happiness. We want everyone to be strong.

    I think everything is all boiled down to the old Japanese culture that is about to change. Get rid of bad Oyaji and move on for change!!

    WAIT!!! Th saddest part of all is the Japanese women expect to stay at home. The idea is to marry a guy with a good job then quit work

    Or most of them understand there is an uphill battle and they have given up. Sounds like you are in denial.

    The most glaring in my view is the age limit on hiring women.

    1)You've got it as nobody are enforcing a labor law in Japan while Japan has a great labor law on the paper, but no actual enforcing.

    2)Also I would like to add that there is no clear written job description available for each workers when hiring.

    3) There are no written semi or annual job performance evaluations available for promotions, pay raise, hiring, firing in work place. These evaluation records need to be kept by both employer and employees, so that both parties are adhering to the rule and regulation in labor practice.

    4)There are no judges to hear the disputed or illegal labor practices in Japan. These judges only hear the labor law related cases.

    5)Every break room, cafeteria, lunch room need to post a minimum labor wage, overtime pay, and other guide lines, so that there will be no violators at work place.

    Japan needs to reform these issues first for both men and women.

    No more "Karooshi", please. No more "sweat shop", please. We do not want to hear that. Thanks.

    @global

    LOL, bass you DID NOT read it.

    Oh, Yeah, I did.

    You did not. You can get it from the Library of Congress. Good luck.

    The whole readings take about a whole week for legal professions to really comprehend as there are too many details. You just lost your credibility in your post.

    There is NO legal lawyer in their right mind that would dare to interpret that the founding fathers had Obamacare in mind when they drafted up the constitution. Seriously, why do liberals like to spin things so much out of the stratosphere. You think they sailed to America have more government intrusion? Seriously!

    You have just insulted all legal professionals. Hope you realize that. The law is very complex. That's why we have lawyers. We do not need a car salesman.

    Do people like Helen Clark ever wonder how Japan has managed to maintain a 4-5% jobless rate after 2 decades of recession, and avoided creating dysfunctional benefits communities like in the UK in the 1980s and modern Spain?

    Actually, Japanese jobless data is not taken and/or extracted the same way like US.

    RecklessJul. 25, 2014 - 09:06AM JST

    It seems Japan is one of the only developed countries that continually receives unwanted, ill-informed and irrelevant comments about its social structure from outsiders who should clean up their own messy countries,,,

    RecklessJul. 25, 2014 - 09:21AM JST

    Time for Japan to raise the middle finger to nosy outsiders!

    You made me laugh. You wanted a pressure from "outsiders" after the Tohoku and the Fukushima disasters. Still cannot solve the mess. You know you cannot have both ways. Your comment reminds me that you are an isolationist who do not believe in globalization. Sad.

    you are very unreasonable in logic. If you read the US Constitution, there are many hidden gems on this issue and the justices talked about all of them in their decisions. I think I am wasting my time with someone who disrespect the ruling of the highest court of US. People like you do not respect democracy. And again, we need to carry these dead weights on our backs and we need to move forward, bass. American flag wept!!

    Sorry, Global...but with all due respect that is just a flat out lie. WHERE in the constitution does it say that healthcare is a privilege? Where? Here is some logic, 200 years ago, there was NO such thing, also the Justices cannot force an employer to pay for your healthcare, there are ways to circumvent the system, many are already cutting hours, laying off people and in the worst case scenario, closing shop. As for disrespect, the president should be the first on your priority diss list. Yeah, I respect democracy! I love it! I am just said to NOT see it anymore! The problem is, our democracy has been eroding and has been spat on by this administration time and time again. November is approaching and the Dems are awfully quiet this time around, I wonder why? Could it be the impending reality that losing the Senate is something that Democrats thought would never come to fruition? 2 more years until the madness ends!

    bass, I have already told you where to go and find the hidden gems in the Constitution. Your job is to read to comprehend how the justices came to the conclusions. They are all there. You are not a 6 year old child, you can do it..

    The Constitution is living. The Bible is living. What you have interpreted about 100 years ago may not be true today. The interpretation needs to adhere to the changes in society.

    Actually, US economy is doing okay. You can feel that energy among people. When I am on the Interstates, I see a fewer old broken cars waiting for overhauling and towing. American consumers are buying newer cars, newer appliances, and newer homes. There will be some unemployment changes in labor stats in September though.

    Democrats are actually doing a lot better than you think according to the campaign stats. If you call this the madness, too bad, you may have to swallow another 6 more years, bass.

    the Supreme Court Justices voted 5-4 on the ACA, it wasn't a slam dunk case. The law was supposed to provide low cost healthcare, but it's anything but. Please don't try to think that everyone here is NOT wise when it comes to Obamacare. If it were that great, it wouldn't fall on its own sword, which it is, but you show me 2 examples of people liking it and I will show you 30 where it has been a complete disaster. Come on now....

    @global

    In the US Constitution, I do not tell you where it is. Hope you read to find out the hidden gems in it.

    Are you joking? There is NO where in the constitution that says, the US government is to provide healthcare. There was NO such thing back then. Our forefathers wanted limited government intrusion. They'd be rolling in their graves if they were alive today and see how the country is turning into a nanny state. Hidden gem. lol

    bass, Please go back and read the US Supreme Court ruling on this issue from the beginning. I do not want to waste my time here. Your ignorance on this issue is beyond me.

    No, it's a right.

    Show me where it says, that Health insurance is a right, show me anywhere in the constitution that states that.

    In the US Constitution, I do not tell you where it is. Hope you read to find out the hidden gems in it.

    School officials said Wednesday that the girl’s parents had told them their daughter left a note in which she said she had been bullied at school for several months. However, teachers said they had not been aware of any bullying.

    It is very sad Japan is not setting up a proactive Anti-Bullying policy in society. Bullying is a crime.

    If you are seriously interested in this issue, there are some "Anti-Bullying" US policy models you can explore. I have already done that on the JT last year.

    The key to success of eliminating the bullying is a social awareness and education that the bullying is a CRIME and if offenders are found, they WILL be prosecuted according to the law. The government has to show the strong stance against the bullies.

    And this is the verdict. Business needs to play a moral role in society besides the profit.

    Just about time, yey!! Finally, "Justice" prevailed.

    Why Krispy Kreme is aggressively marketing in Japan? Leave them alone. Many health conscious US consumers are staying away from sugar rich food and drinks. We are eating more fruits, veggies and drinking a bottle of water.

    As a matter of fact, all Krispy Kreme stores closed down business here. Colorado is the thinnest state in USA compared to others. We eat healthy!!
