Exactly why the number of unmarried 30yr old+ J-ladies continues to rise.
Remember ladies, it is not all about YOU..
Get your heads out of the "Disney/Hollywood/Magazine/J-drama" fantasy land and get out there and experience real life. This will teach you all you need to know....

If people vote for him, what message is that portraying about Japan? Glorious is not the first word that comes to my mind...
I think he is nothing other than an attention seeking whore, who will say and do anything to grab the limelight. He is dangerous and uneducated (he knows nothing about or refuses to accept history - foolish little man)...
Japan needs a leader who is prepared to stand up to the old guard that controls and corrupts Japan. They are the cause for so much of Japans dire situation and gloomy future. Do worry about standing up and fighting your Asian neighbors, start fighting and getting rid of the old internal crooks first.

Ah the joy of religion and praise of celestial dictators... Enjoy it folks.
Funny how you NEVER hear anything about fellow 'Humanists' causing trouble..

Whilst these companies are managed by over privileged and clueless executives, the reverse evolution of J-biz will continue to gain momentum.
Japan is in desperate need of a talented, quick decision makers, independent thinkers, proactive and productive executives. Enough of the corrupt, self-centered and useless old boys network.
When you look at the average J-biz board members, most of them belong in either an old peoples home or prison.

It is the women and children of Afghanistan who are the real victims. The Taliban are a stain on the planet (as are all faith based regimes) and they need to be wiped off it... They are barbaric, dangerous, delusional, self-centered and dictators... The sooner they are gone the better...

The world needs to be rid of ALL idiotic and barbaric religious based regimes.. It's an insult to human intelligence...
Replace them ALL with a system based on open, fair and democratic 'Humanist' values... Then we may find peace...

An affectionate kiss anywhere and at anytime is fine with me. Who cares what anal onlookers are thinking.
I agree that aggressively trying to force your tongue deep down inside your partners throat is not cool in public, but a simple affectionate kiss in public is harmless and should be encouraged not frowned upon..

The government should be spending money on tackling this problem. Sod buying the bloody islands. Spend some time and money where it is really needed..
Reward teachers that spot and report suspected bullying. Punish bullies with immediate expulsion who are proven to be the bullies (no exceptions).
Appoint a counselor to each school (or area) and provide all children with free unlimited access and all the information they need. Also, make this service strictly confidential (that includes keeping teachers out of the loop regards to the pupils names)...
Educate the children that bullying is bad, talking is good... Educate and encourage them, that they can talk to a counselor about anything and at anytime.
Issue notices and/or training for parents on 'How to talk to your child, to prevent them from killing themselves'... Also, encourage the parents to report any suspicions they may have about their child being bullied...
That will do for starters.
