This is a surprise. How many of us here know some Japanese?
Sugei da! Tabun, bokutachi dake, ne?
I don't imagine many other folks on here speak Japanese.
You spend some time out there as well?

Yes, it seems there is only us. There may be some in the Japan forum but I don't recall any making themselves known.

I do spend time in Japan. My wife is from Oita. She is there right now caring for her terminally ill father.

“Meh.”

Yikes, terribly sorry. That's got to be really tough, both for her and for the both of you being apart.

I just left around a year ago, after ages out there. Really, really missing takoyaki and trains that run on time!

No, no, no.

I know that this effort might be in vain.
My English-skill is quite low.
Even I know that.

[2]
However, everybody can understand that
people donot change their regime with huge-efforts for nothing.

People donot want to go back to feudal-society,
if the people cannot make money by going back to feudal-society.

Changing regime costs to much money.

[3]
Even I can understand that some people have interest in Japan.
(I hate Japan.)
(I have NO intention to support Japan.)

So, you have some purposes.
Those may be money or dignity or pride or anything else.
(I have NO pride so that I cannot understand pride nor dignity.)

[4]
When people want dignity or tradition,
they go back to their own history.

Authorities use their history in order to authorize their power.

[5]
Then, here is one problem with you, Japan, Asia, China, Russia, and Europe.

The oldest democratic-country in the world is the U.S.!

So, Europa, Russia, Japan, Asia, and China cannot use or pride themselves as Democratic-Countries.
Europa, Russia, Japan, Asia, and China can only pride their long-history.
As a result, inevitably,
Europa, Russia, Japan, Asia, and China pride their feudal-society or absolute-monarchism.

What poor and pathetic countries you are!
What poor and pathetic countries Europa, Russia, Japan, Asia, and China are!

Europa, Russia, Japan, Asia, and China can NEVER win against our America concerning Democracy.

And, so, we America must proud of ourselves as Democratic-Country.

Japan's history is feudal-society or absolute-monarchism.
China's history is feudal-society or absolute-monarchism or communism.
Russia's history is feudal-society or absolute-monarchism or communism.
Europa's history is feudal-society or absolute-monarchism.
Germany's history is feudal-society or absolute-monarchism.

Japan has only 60-year-of-democracy.
Europa may be the same.

[6]
I can understand people in those-countries want to be bad-boys.
Their authorities are not right.

So, I will be an American.

[7]
I have been always wondering
how those-countries teach their own histories to their children.

If they teach the truth, their children will be bad-boys.

XDXDXDXDXD
Please imagine!

If parents and teachers in North-Korea taught their children the true history of the world,
revolution would begin,
and people destroyed communism!

XDXDXDXDXD

Communism-countries would be destroyed by revolution!

XDXDXDXDXD

Our America was born as Democratic-Country.
When the U.S. was born, the U.S. is already Democratic-Country.
Our America is sepecial.

I am sorry again and again and again.
There are a lot of typos and grammatical-errors.

Europa ----->>>>> Europe

I am sorry.
English is too difficult for me.
I have been learning English.
But, I cannot still write English correctly.

“Meh.”

Thanks. As difficult as it is, we're used to it as we have conducted nearly our entire relationship long distance.

Yeah, Japan arguably has the most efficient rail system in the world. Looking forward to my trip over for hanami.

On the one hand,
Today's your rich life is acquired and developed by Democracy and "one person one vote principle".
Nobody can deny this.
(Or, do you really want to abandon your right to vote? XDXDXDXDXD)

On the other hand,
when you want to pride your history,
the history is full of anti-democracy.
Your history is consist of feudal-society and absolute-monarchism.

So, inevitably,
there arise contradiction.

So, you can go mad, you can go crazy, you can go bad, you can go insane, and you can be confused.

For example, you can post here, because of democracy.
In Syria, you can not even see here.

Our America is the best country in the world ever.

[2]
Only our America can protect her own American-people.

In this hard-to-live world, even parents cannot protect their children enough.
So, children have puberty or "period of adolescence" or the awkward age.
Children decide to live on their own power.

However, the U.S. can protect American-people.
The U.S. has power and will.

[3]
On the other hand,
Asian-countries and European-countries, China, Japan, etc.
have no power nor will
to protect their own people.
(Partly because those-countries donot have enough money.)
(Partly because, those-countries have no will to protect their own people.)
(Confucianism, communism, feudalism or absolute-monarchism donot protect their own people.)

Authorities in those-countries need
confucianism, communism, feudalism or absolute-monarchism
in order to authorize their power to control their own people.

As a result, confusion can arise in those-countries.

So, people can go mad in those-countries.

There is no way.
We can derive this conclusion logically.

So, our America is the best country in the world ever.
So, I will be an America.

“Meh.”

You are totally wrong.
I can understand what you are trying to do.
This is waste of my time.
(Yes. I am free. But, I rather do take a nap than waste time with you.)

[1-1]
This is one example.
This is happening here in Japan now.

"You are university-graduate".
"You are white-collar."
"Oh, that is, you are elite!"
"Well, then, you are different from workers."
"You are different from blue-collars."
"So, you donot need to join labor-union"

AND!
TA-DA!!!!!
Here, we can get stupid-labors who work 8 dollars per hour for all his life long.
What is more, he will never join labor-union!

I think that
who developed this system is extremely evil.

[1-2]
Here,
"university-graduate "
is only one example.

"University-graduate " can be changed to "Samurai" or "Public-servant" or "Emperorís soldier".

Anything is O.K.

Why you are so stupid that you make me explain everything from A to Z.
You make me explain explain everything in detail.
If I were a CEO, I would definitely fire you.

[2-1]
Then, here we go next step.
What is friend? Community? Colleague?

Only chatting each-other, shipping tea together, eating sweet bean jelly together
are not friends.

Please imagine extreme conditions.
(This is usually used in physics in order to get intuitive solutions.)

If you were zebras living in Africa, what would you expect with your colleagues?
You must post sentries 24-7 in order to protect your community.
In the morning, there may be Lions.
In the afternoon, there may be Coyotes
In the night, there may be hyenas.

You can never rest for all your life.

And, you must make division of labor.
Some work for child-raising, some for sentries, some for collecting foods, etc.etc.etc.
Everybody must work.
Community need everybody to do some role.

[2-2]
True friend must talk about money.
(Yes. Some elites deny this. I know.)
(But, I think that is because denying this is convenient for them.)

Please consider your wife.
You will always have a talk with your wife about loans, money, salary, etc.

Money, money, money, money, money.

So, I donot need you.
So, I donot need Japan anymore.
First of all, I donot need Japan from the first.

[3]
You yourself admit this.
Why you come to Japan?
Why you donot go to Korea?

Money and life and safety.

Even during Cold-War-Era,
there were terrorists
even
in Japan (United Red Army)
in Germany (Rote Armee Fraktion)
in Italy (Le Brigate Rosse)
etc.
etc.

I am not a specialist of any field.
I donot know about terrorists.
We can search in Wikipedia.

However, they did nothing.
They were useless.

Money solved all problems.
So, we America need money.

[4]
If you cannot understand this,
then you are a stupid-child.

You are rich-boy, or rich, or stupid.

[5]
Therefore,
The U.S. must be the largest creditor-nation in the world ever in world-history.
The U.S. must have 5-Trillion-dollar-trade-surplu s per year and 5-Trillion-dollar-current-acco unt-surplus per year.
Dow must be $20,000.
The jobless-rate of the U.S. must be 2%.
The minimum-wage of Americans must be $70,000.
American-companies and the U.S. must monopolize all the markets all over the world.
Therefore, Asian-war, European-war, Russia-Germany war, Japan-China war, Japan-Russia war, Japan-S.Korea war, British-Russia war, Falklands war, South Ossetia war, Sino-Soviet border conflict, and Sino-Indian War must be begun now!
Free Tibet!
Tibet must get independence from China!
The U.S. must withdraw our American-Forces from Asia, Japan, South-Korea, and Europa.

And, the U.S. must not be involved these wars.
The U.S. must make cars, weapons, ships, steel, airplanes, PCs, and home-electric-appliances in the U.S.,
and the U.S. must export those cars, weapons, ships, steel, airplanes, PCs, and home-electric-appliances from the U.S. to the world.

And, I will be an American.

I will be a useful-man for our America.
I can NEVER betray our America.

I love the U.S.A.!
I love all Americans!
Remember Pearl Harbor!

You may be a foreign-student from Japan.
If you return to Japan, you cannot find a job.

You cannot protect even your lif.
You cannot sell even your life.
You cannot sell even yourself.
How you sell your company's useless-junks to customers?

Yeah. I have NO friend. I have NO family. I am alone. So, I will go to America.

Oh My God!
I posted twice!
How to delete one???

I am sorry.

I forgot to say one more important thing.

After they get diploma (graduation certificate) of university,
they will work $8 per hour for all his life long.

Diploma (graduation certificate) of university,
a piece of paper,
make them work $8 per hour for all his life long.

What is more surprisingly,
they buy this piece of paper with their own money!
They buy this piece of paper with huge gratitude!
(I mean that they pay their school-expenses.)

Oh, maybe,
they donot buy this piece of paper with their own money,
but they buy this piece of paper with their dads' and moms' money.

This is Japan now.

Who developed this system is extremely evil!

“Meh.”

You would have to work at 7/11 to get paid that.

If you've got a degree and you're still working baito, with the labour shortages, you've done something very, very wrong in setting up your life.

You will have a talk with your wife about mortgage (loan for house), car-loan, education-loan, saraly, money money money.,etc.
And, you insist that you will never have a talk with your friends about money.

What do you want to say?
You are crazy.
I cannot understand Japanese-people.

You bought a house without having a talk with your wife?
You bought a car without having a talk with your wife?
You sent your child to colledge without having a talk with your wife?

Your wife can divorce you!

I hate Japan!
Remember Pearl Harbor!
I will be an American!

"But,"
"You must not talk about money!"

You are making slavery!
You are a racist!

You donot understand why people have to work.
I hate Japan.
I hate Confucianism.

You are proud against me that
your friends are less reliable than your wife!

You say
"For me, my friends are less reliable than my wife!",
"HAHAHAHA",
"You have NO friends!", and
"You must beg us to be your friends"!

Oh, boy!
What should I say!

Remember Pearl Harbor!

Labor-Union members can have a talk about money each-other.
Labor-Union says
"We want more money"!

I think that Labor-Union is NEVER a communist.
Labor-Union members want money.
Labor-Union members can have a talk about money each-other.

Your friends can NEVER have a talk about money.
You can have a talk with your wife about money.

For example,
NFL star-players did strikes in order to raise their salary.
Jennifer Aniston united with her co-stars and negotiated about their salary when Jennifer Aniston appered in TV-sitcom "Friends".

Do you think that NFL star-players and Jennifer Aniston are communists?

I think that you are deadly wrong.

I will be an American.

Mayber, you cannot join Labor-Union.
You cannot form a community.
You cannot form a Labor-Union.
You cannot have ability to negotiate.

So, you are trying to impede against other's efforts.
You are useless.

I will be an American.
I love the U.S.A.!
I love all Americans.
Remember Pearl Harbor!

FL star-players and Jennifer Aniston are communists whose salary is 1-billion-dollar per year?????
!!!!!
OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG
XDXDXDXDXD

You hate Hollywood-stars.
You hate Labor-Union.
You hate Wall-Street.

I can assume what you are.

I have NO intention to insult any one of Americans.
So, please conmsider what is the cause of these disasters?

Japan, China, Germany, Russia, South-Korea, and Taiwan are evil-fascism-communism-empires !
