    Is it me or has some missed the point of English for negotiations as the issue. When dealing with unions, management will do whatever is required to cut cost, reduce benefits or make dealing with collective bargaining difficult for labor reps. I'll assume English is otherwise ok for all other discussions since this was specific labor talks policy.

    After living in Japan for over 24 years I am now beginning to do something I have not done in a long time, developing my street smarts and watching what's going around me.

    My thoughts on the speech yesterday reminded me of a prisoner asking for release at a parole board. My thoughts became reality when Abe stated that he would consider the request.

    Why is it an awesome choice? You don't elect a woman just because she's a woman. Yeah, a move to the right and a move to the back.

    Can't see anywhere in my post where it said "elect a woman." It was meant as the right choice based on credentials vs. the status quo. Sad that some assume based on vague perception.

    Given the fact that he was naked, chances that he have would pay the fare were slim.

    Let the gentleman live out his final years in peace, away from the spotlight.

    Haven't heard anything about his daughter since she left the palace and I'm sure he would like the same.

    Concur with OssanAmerican, targeting the Naval Base would be useless and retaliation swift.

    I assume this is more about distance than an actual threat.

    targeted “diligent-looking” boys

    Kids that have a future in society, unlike the two who are working on a place in the underworld.

    Aircraft malfunction, weather, inexperience, unforeseen obstacle like birds or wire cable not updated on a navigation map. Some seem to go right for the age thing when they read these post.

    Those sanctions are obviously not working. Every time I see an updated photo of the dear leader he seems to have gained another 10 lbs.

    Abe said the imperial household system, rooted in the country’s history and traditions, has long been supported by the public

    Abe obviously has not spoken to my wife on this subject.

    Four years? What are they doing, sending him away to college? He will still be an immature thug when he is released.

    Blacks are not the only tone in the color spectrum not being represented here. Lost all respect for the Academy when Ken Watanabe got beat for his role in the Last Samurai. Clearly an outstanding performance brushed aside by Hollywood politics. .

    Speed, I think you miss the point. I like looking at them too, but out of sight of children.

    For goodness sake, put this on the shelf for good. The woman has been dragged through the media enough and will possibly never work in the field again as deserved for here alleged deception. How many times you have to swat a fly before you're satisfied it's dead.

    Something that some may find interesting is that ADM Harris was born in Japan and the first Asian- American to reach Admiral in the US Navy.
