    Ahh, but the difference between these examples and Okinawa seems to pass right over your head. Sure people would protest, but they wouldn't be insisting that the bases be shut as the solution either.

    ..says who? have you even been to Hawaii and talked to the locals, not the transplanted haoles? None want the US military there as they are considered simply an occupying force.

    Imagine having to live near all the cacophony of a military base and the stress it must create.

    US military should compensate Okinawans for the loss in quality of life and quit demanding discounts from local merchants when they get enough handouts on the military bases courtesy of US tax payers.

    As entertaining as GOT is, it and other shows set a bad precedent for the intense level of graphic violence that is shown.

    Many American parents see nothing wrong with allowing their young children view such violence and justify it with 'theyre old enough to know it's make believe' type of thinking.

    Such intense, graphic violence absolutely has a negative impact on young impressionable minds and sends the message to children that physical violence is justified to get what you want.

    It's no wonder violent crime is so high in countries like the US/UK/AUS with so many kids watching this stuff on a daily basis.

    Westerners often explain longevity of Japan's aging population by attributing it to diet, healthcare, etc. while ignoring the obvious factors such as social harmony, civility, respect for elders and most importantly 'we culture vs me culture.'

    My theory is that these factors are ignored because it highlights the severe deficiencies in their own countries where obesity, heart disease and cancer rates are very high while also questioning their fundamental values.

    Such factors have a huge impact on well-being and quality of life, especially for the elderly.

    People with disabilities are discriminated all over the world, Japan is no exception.

    What is evident is that those with disabilities in Japan are much less likely to be victims of crime compared to those western countries.

    In any other developed country, Trump would be a laughing stock. The fact that he has so much support from Americans is frightening.

    Hollywood doesnt want to represent diversity, especially of the Asian male kind because they are threat to the 'tribe' that run it and much of US media.

    Typical litigious American mentality. Nevermind that US has highest rates of heart disease in the world and has fostered a dog-eat-dog system where it's literally every man for himself.

    Ryan Lochte is the epitome of the 'ugly American' stereotype. The sad thing is, he is representative of a lot of Americans not to mention Brits and Aussies who wind up in Japan and elsewhere in Asia with their arrogant attitudes and sense of entitlement.

    It seems gaijin from these 3 countries are responsible for much of the altercations and stirring up drama in many parts of Asia.

    That there will be a lot of self-entitled gaijin like Ryan Lochte who have no respect for local culture and likely will cause some sort of trouble.

    They will make up stories to absolve themselves so make sure there are extra security cameras installed and any incident is video recorded.

    cops need to be trained to deal with foreigners, and not treat them as suspects every time something happens

    Why do they 'need' to be trained to deal with foreigners? Theyre doing their job to enforce the laws in a country that has the lowest crime rate in the world for such a large population.

    cops and politicians won't do anything about them because many of them are part of this neo-nazi organisation.

    What does your home country do about the prevalence of neo nazis who often go beyond verbal abuse and engage in physical attacks against non-whites, particularly Asians?

    America is a country that produces a massive amount of cultural output such as Hollywood movies, music and many other (forms of) entertainment.

    And sadly it's through Hollywood, advertising and other media that gives many in the world a predominantly Euro-centric view of the US despite its diversity.

    try freedom, merit, content of character and the diversity problem goesvaway

    Obviously that hasnt worked in the entire history of Hollywood, unless you want to believe that only white people are the most talented and creative people to act/make make movies.

    The father made a terrible mistake but the daycare center should bear some responsibility. There's no reason someone couldnt have called the parents to verify that their son was ok.

    Japan needs to pay its fair share for protection. Two choices - pay more or reduce costs.

    Why only Japan, what about EU and much of Europe? Their high standard of living and generous social benefits are largely subsidized by American tax payer footing military presence.

    If they paid their fair share, could they afford to be so magnanimous...

    How come so many places have had B&Bs for decades well before Air B&B started & it goes on with no hullaballoo

    BBs require licenses while following strict regulations and are located in/near commercial areas. ABB requires none of that and allows any resident to 'rent' to someone else.

    Many pay a premium to live where they do and shouldnt have to deal with numerous issues caused by transient activity that should be relegated to commercial areas.

    one answer in these discussions is "Family

    Family connections that are strengthened through frequent daily interactions are even more important the social connections involving friends.

    This is often overlooked in the west where longevity is attributed more to external factors like diet, social activity and animal companionship.
