    While the certification would not confer special legal rights

    Then it is utterly useless.

    Yes and no. In and of itself, it's useless, but it brings awareness, and will allow LGBT couples to tell people they are legally couples. And it creates a grassroots movement, that hopefully will lead to proper marriage for these people.

    Why hasn't Trump dealt with this? It's pathetic that he is letting this happen in his country. He should be impeached for this attack.

    Has there EVER been a 'working class' Cabinet member?

    Maybe not, but they generally haven't been heavily populated by multi-billionaires.

    You guys sure seem to go to a lot of effort to try to come up with reasons why it's ok that Trump filled the swamp instead of draining it.

    Hmmmm....the way the Dems are acting these days, I think they are more Dictator-lite with the way they want to force this president out of office and undermine the political system.

    Um, dictators don't force leaders out of office, they are already leaders. And they don't undermine political systems, they destroy them to their own ends.

    So no, the Democrats are not dicator-lite.

    It's pretty apparent the earth's flat too. Until the evidence proves otherwise, enough with the mindless parroting!!

    So the fact that Trump changed his tune to the Russians probably being behind the hacking, after receiving briefings from the intelligence agencies, is equivalent to people saying the earth is flat?

    Yeah, sure. If it makes you feel better to equate unrelated things, then go ahead I guess. But it's hard to take you seriously when you do so.

    Yeah, maybe the government could put together some plan to reduce the number of suicides: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suicide_in_Japan#Government_response

    They don't DESERVE public money just for that!

    Yep, if it's not profitable, it has zero societal value. Anything that doesn't make a profit needs to be banished from existence.

    suicide is the weakest and most selfish act anybody could take! There is no honor in suicide! Anybody can kill themselves, but it takes real guts to stay alive!

    Sure it's selfish - they are doing it for themselves. But why not? Why should someone have to live, when their life has no meaning and holds no joy? What's the purpose of dragging it out at that point? To some degree, it's selfish of those that expect a suicidal person with nothing to live for, to continue living so that the person doesn't have to feel bad about the suicidal person killing themselves.

    And what about those with terminal illness, who want to die with dignity? What's the problem with them wanting to take an early exit, rather than living in pain and/or worse for their last years?

    It's too complex of an issue to conclude that suicide is weak, or that not committing suicide takes guts.

    According to separate data from the National Police Agency, the number of suicides in Japan totaled 21,764 in 2016, decreasing for the seventh consecutive year.

    This is not true.

    What's not true about it?

    That creates a distraction

    The Trump team are pros at distraction. Notice how the fact that Pence used a non-official email server, which last year was worthy of chants of 'Lock Her Up' for months on end, suddenly has become silence within days of Pence doing the same thing? Trump distracted from it, and his subjects willingly went with those distractions, so that they didn't have to justify their hypocrisy. I'm really disappointed in the other side in also taking the bait with the distractions though. Pence's transgression should require 3-4 inquiries to clear up, and yet there isn't even a call for a single inquiry.

    and how they helped him get the election

    Until there's some actual evidence to back this, parroting it only makes you seem dense!!

    It's pretty apparent they did help him. Even he admitted, after being briefed, that it looked like it was the Russians who hacked the DNC mails. The question is whether his team colluded on getting help from the Russians, not whether or not the Russians actually helped.

    That's a cool sentence!

    I've heard from people that have studied both Chinese and Japanese, that Japanese is more difficult even though it uses less characters, due to the multiple readings for characters. Chinese apparently only has a single reading for each character (though that reading changes depending on the language/dialect of the person reading it).

    The investigation has not been completed, so until that time there is no final determination of anything. No evidence of something does not mean it didnt happen.

    That's not the point though. The point is that Trump made claims of fact, and nothing has been found to show that his comments were made based on any facts. So even if it turns out he was correct in the future, he still made these claims without any basis in fact.

    So I once again ask the question, are you ok with him presenting fake news from Breitbart as fact, without first verifying that what he has said is not in fact fake news?

    A whole lot of justification in that post blacklabel, but you entirely ignored the fact the claims Trump made have been shown to not have any basis in fact.

    If anything, they should do a sequel. The Matrix #2 to be specific. Pretend the other two sequels never happened, and make something that actually makes sense.

    A landslide of Republicans saying you shouldn't elect someone under FBI investogation....when it was Clinton:

    Yeah, but it was Clinton. They didn't mean that you shouldn't elect someone under FBI investigation, they meant you shouldn't elect a Democrat under FBI investigation.

    That clears it up, right?

    As others have said, Japan is already in the wrong timezone. It gets dark too early both in the summer and winter. Daylight savings time would somewhat alleviate that. But shifting timezones for the full year without DST would be better.

    The child also won't be considered Japanese regardless of its passport and will be treated as a foreigner.

    Can you explain this to me? I haven't seen it happen with my kids at all, but maybe I'm just ignorant to how exactly they aren't being considered Japanese. If I had something quantitative that I could compare against, I may agree that they are treated as foreigners and not considered as Japanese. But a vague statement along the lines of 'they won't be considered Japanese' isn't enough for me to have anything to consider that statement to be accurate or not.
