Too little, too late. Knee-jerk reaction always seem like a good idea at the time. Just get the USA military out of those countries and JAPAN as fast as possible. Nothing good has happened or changed.

This is a farce. He was scheduled to leave two later. A second resignation just occurred. He was head of the tax exempt division. Run, Forrest, run, but you can't hide.

Swimming in rivers, canoeing in rivers, now swimming in a controlled environment. Swimming proficiency is more important than running around a track or making a pyramid on Sports Day for junior high schools students. These deaths can be prevented if someone changes the PE requirements and TRADITIONS.

"That would mean about 50,000 pro-Kim Jong Un supporters." 50,000 X 10,000 yen/pro-NK. SOLD with one caveat: It cannot be resold; it must be returned to the Japanese if they leave.

Where is all the hype for increasing tourism? Where are the free tickets to Japan? Tourists want a good exchange rate. It must be 100 yen to 1 USD to attract USA tourists. It used to be there, and it needs to be there now.

Sell it to the pro-NK group for 100 yen but don't let it remove any listening devices.

Nobody complained in 2005 when the yen was 112 to 1. Considering inflation, this present exchange is not a problem. Japan needs to establish itself and do what it believes is correct for currency. China is a higher priority.

Naval shift - fine. Nuke subs, cruise missiles, and other defenses. Ospreys? No way. Why did this story disappear. Is anyone listening to the colonialism that is taking place. Stand up Japan. Change the constitution or expect another 100 years! This sounds cruel, but the USA taxpayers know, but will not admit, that the USA cannot continue to be the #1 self police force for its allies.

Noriyosan73 has a perfect understanding of the situation from personal experience. A student who is hosted by an American family who has paid taxes for 40 years and NEVER sent a student to post-secondary education is charged the "out of state" tuition. Fine, but what happens to the difference in cost? The school still received tax revenue by law to operate whether or not the visa-student is there. The difference in tuitions is put into the general fund by administrators. Schools are not meeting their responsibility if visa-students are not supervised. There is no excuse, and the USA taxpayers should not accept incompetence. By the way, there is also no difference in the quality of education and no special or extra help.

The point is the visiting or foreign already pays a premium to the school for supervision and reporting to Homeland Security. If the supervisor at the school isn't reviewing visas and reporting lack of attendance or overstays, or Homeland Security isn't following up on the supervisor's reports, then there is nothing that can be done. There is plenty of money to pay for supervision. The "buck stops" at Homeland Security. There is no need for more rules, etc. just enforce what exists.
