Hi Blog. Excellent article in yesterday’s Chunichi Shinbun on what’s the problem with the new proposed IC Gaijin Cards, and how the extra policing that NJ will have to endure will just make life worse for a lot of people. Again, the goal is only to police, not to actually help NJ assimilate and make a better life here.

In particular, read the contrarian arguments. Now this is how we proceed with a debate. We get people who know what they’re talking about to express the minority view (for where else is it going to be heard?). As opposed to last night’s terebi bangumi TV Tackle, which basically had the status quo maintained with the same old commentators spouting much the same old party lines.

  • Do you mean *that* Dave Spector? Why don’t they put him on those TV shows 😛

    — Yes, *that* Dave Spector.

  • Oooh, I missed this. My parent-in-laws will have yesterday’s copy so I’ll make sure all my relatives and friends read it.

  • Today I found something from Italy.

    The difference between Italy`s law and Japanese is, that in japan they target us legal residents by implementing all those stupid measures to make us like criminals even though many of us NJ have been living here for many, many years. GoJ think this way illegal immigration will stop. I doubt it.
