Obama still having a go at subverting democracy, with his short remaining time in office!
With the majority of the 9/11 terrorists hailing from Saudi Arabia, why wouldn't the victims'families not wish to know more?
Why is Barak not interested in the truth?
And why is he not interested in stopping terrorism on American soil?

In Japan it's fine to run a red light, but not if speeding!
Strange but true!
Selectively choosing which laws to enforce and which not to,have turned the Japanese motorist into a danger!
People are being slaughtered and it is all rectifiable!

No it doesn't!
You are assuming that radioactive material is water soluble.
And you are also assuming that radioactive material floats perfectly in water to be dispersed.
Start with an analysis of what was blasted out of the reactor (educate yourself) and your points may have some validity......

So instead of a high speed pursuit in which people may die the it behooves the police to apprehend the suspect at a later time.Many people blame only the rider here but I've had cops follow me on the highway and then accelerate to high speeds and blow by me at over 180ks per hour!I've seen motorcycle cops racing on mountain routes too!
For no reason other than being intimidating.
Where death to the suspect or danger may be caused by the police to the public then these pursuits should be abandoned!

Breaking up at train stations ( or not)？
These mini dramas will often occur around the time of the last train.
Not so much a breakup but a choice.
After a fairly brief dating period and the guy is trying to get into her pants; he'll try the last train or 'hotel' ploy.
This will involve trying to cajole the girl to a hotel.
After dinner and drinks and the girl is tired the game turns to a psychological game of 'me' or go home.
Notice that the girls are usually either tearful or quite angry looking in these public emotional displays.
This is because they are being forced to make a choice that is being forced upon them.
To some extent, the excuse of work, being busy and the last train are all used for avoidance purposes.
And the 'last train' is such an excuse used by females not seeking entanglement.
Arriving at the station, some time before the train's departure, the girl can finally choose her fate.Use the train to split from the guy, leading to a resultant breakup or be persuaded to extend her time with the boy.
However, the first time the girl meets this scenario;there are often outbursts of tears, prolonged gazing and flustered looks.
Here, the girl is inexperienced and this is why we never see people in their latter years exhibiting signs of 'station breakup',
They know the game already.......

It's quite strange how world history is compartmentslised into Asia, Europe, the Americas etc when artifacts show not only have ancient cultures interacted other vast distances but also that human history shows cultures that have been lost and are not mentioned in
our history books.In Okinawa,below the sea at Yonaguni is evidence of a prehistory (10000 years +) vast stone slabs, parallel walls, 90 degree right angles etc.
It can be concluded that there was a civilization thriving in the Ryukus surpassing anything found on the Japanese mainland.........

No, it will benefit the big Japanese conglomerates though.

The trouble is that Japan's government and a large number of Japanese just do not want foreigners in Japan except to do the out of sight 3k jobs that many are doing at present!
Where is the ideal that Jpanese covet for themselves;namely a chance to make a better life, have security and betterment through education?

Kubota San is so desperately ill informed and so overly opinionated as to be excruciatingly out of touch with normal reality.
I wonder if he is an adult as I cannot imagine an adult could be able to sprout such pure tripe!
Has he, I wonder ever met a foreigner in his life of insularity?
Maybe he should do a piece on the real villains in Japan?
Maybe he should investigate on how unappealing it is to work and/or to find decent work in Japan?
Anyhow, his fears won't come true as Phillipinas will choose first world countries like Australia, Canada, the US etc where rights are protected and there is no need to worry about the intricacies of Japanese.
Oh, and if he is worried about prostitution then he might go and interview the hordes of Chinese prostitutes working in the clubs and street corners all over Japan!!!

The media still aren't interested in foreigners as ntelligent beings with any type of life,other than over exuberant clowns.
I was cornered flying into KIX by a film crew this month and the same old boring typical questions came out!
What do you do in Japan?Oh wow,can you speak Japanese?What business are you in?
Where are you from?
After the fourth rather banal question I had to tell them that I was late for my next connection and had to go.
The interviewer gave me one of the stoniest stares I've ever had in Japan as I made my exit with a polite 失礼します！

Namie is most likely a place where the elderly can live as they are not so susceptible to radioactive poisoning as the young are.However, the elderly also need the services that only the younger generations can provide.
With no studies on just how low level radiation is to children then it is all a bit of a crap shot!
In ten years time I might swop my home in Kanaai for one in Fukushima but not before......
