        Japan rules!
        \_ Fifteen years ago I worked there for seven months.  I miss Japan!
           (I'm Chinese immigrant.)  More facts:
           - Besides cold drinks, vending machines also carry hot drinks like
             hot tea and corn soup.  And they are actually hot instead of warm.

8/29    OC turning liberal, maybe there is hope for CA afterall:
        http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/30/us/politics/30orange.html
        \_ and the state is slowly turning conservative. Meg 2010!
           \_ We will see. Seems unlikely.
        \_ Yeah, because CA sure has a problem with not enough dems in power!
           If only dems had been running the state for the last 40 years!

7/20    Is jblack still on? What about the rest of the pro-war cheerleaders?
        http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100720/ap_on_re_eu/eu_britain_iraq_inquiry
        \_ War is fought for the glory of generals and the economics of the
           war machine.  Looking for "justifications" for it is like looking
           for sense in the necronomicon.  Just accept it and move on.
        \_ When we fight with Red China, what nation will we use as a proxy?

SeventhSun (6 hours ago) Despite his speech being quite funny, he seems to lead a pained life. And the laws regarding "political crimes" can be quite broad and subjective. The Korean language has honorifics and polite/informal speech levels just as Japanese does, and if a Korean politician went on TV using informal speech not only would he be ridiculed, he'd be lambasted and criticized for bad manners. He cannot be unaware that in your culture the same would probably occur. Or is the use of polite/impolite speech not a big deal in Japan as it once was? Toyama Koichi, self proclaimed Mussolini Style Fascist, and leader of the Kyushu Fascist Party has run for Tokyo Governor. When he is not absorbed in his path to overthrow and destroy the nation of Japan, he works as a musician playing songs for tips on the side of the street. Every candidate in Japan is given the right to have their speech aired under equal conditions, according to Japanese law. Broadcasting companies are not allowed to edit them, and thus not responsible for the content of speech. In many nations, a man such as this who blatantly wants to overthrow the government and is a convicted felon would not be given the opportunity to speak.
