Whale murder
Stop the murder of whales, now! All the world condemns you and your butchery. The Japanese people and the world deserve better.

Whale hunting
You don't conserve whales by killing them. Shame on your country for destroying these magnificent creatures.
There is NO justification for it.
Whale killing is a stain on your nation's

personal view of
The Most Beautiful Land

Have you ever considered the flight 
of a single butterfly,
or the fall of a single tear drop
falling from a child's eye,
have you ever followed the morning sun
from it's rise to the mid day sky,
have you ever heard the emptiness
of a lover's quiet sigh.

Have you ever seen Mount Fujiyama
that has risen to kiss the sky,
with a cold snowy summit
that draws the observant eye,
Have you ever contemplated a garden
with a pond of swimming Carp,
where the fragrance of a single flower
can melt the coldest heart.

If not,
I'll know you've never been
to the land of the rising Sun
where the art of introspection
is shared by everyone,
where prose are met with great respect
for the beautiful truth they bear,
and the people of the great islands of Japan
will with honor greet you there.

Uncle Lonnie

Horrified by the barbaric abuse of dolphins and whales at Tajii
I am writing to express my horro at the abuse of the dolphins and whales at Tajii. I plead with your country to stop thus cruel and unpardonable attack on helpless sea creatures
That have no way to defend themselves. Surely this is a slur on the name of Japan and its citizens.

You are the best Japan
Japan is the most refined, educated and sophisticated nation the world has ever seen. I'm begging you to keep a tight immigration policy. You're land mass is too small to let sentiment dictate the policy. Every set of immigrants demand what all humans need: food, clothing and shelter...translate jobs' healthcare and resources. If you fling open your doors, in 10 years some of your neighborhoods will not be Japanese. They'll be crowded, dirty and smelly like impoverished Asian neighborhoods. Do you want that? Look at the London. What a mess.

Japan's cetacean Genocide
Today’s World is filled with irrational lunacy, yet in the face of the Paris attacks we cannot forget the lunacy of “The Cove” in Taji’i, Japan. It’s bad enough that humans kill our own kind, but the barbaric cetacean slaughters at “The Cove” in Taji’i is so barbaric – and unnecessary – it cannot go unnoticed. There is no excuse for this cetacean genocide except Japanese “Tradition” – the same tradition that brought us Comfort Women, Kamikazi raids, Banzai attacks, the Rape of Nanjing, mass suicide off the cliffs of Saipan and numerous other “culture” related atrosities.
We all know how Japanese hate marine animals – especially cetaceans – and inflict the genocide they exhibited in the Second World War on not only humans but all marine animals, especially mammals. The Cove in Taji’ is an international outrage even now reported by CNN – proof that the atrocities of World War Two endure in the Japanese psyque. In addition to their irrational slaughter of marine animals (full of mercury) Japan offers us an endless list of “The Ridiculous” that literally threatens life on Earth.
Ever heard of Fukushima? Japan told us they had Nuclear Power all under control. Now our seas are contaminated by radioactive materials with a half life of 25,000 years that may kill us all – especially when you eat Japanese seafood.
I grew up in Sendai in the 1950’s in a 500 year old traditional mansion and traveled to Matsushima Bay every week-end, but I won’t set foot in the land of cetacean fascists until they stop their genocide. I won’t be going to the Olympics – a childhood dream – until Japan regains dignity and stops killing highly intelligent species who just happen not to be humans – and I encourage all people with dignity to do the same – Tokyo reminds me to much of Hitler’s 1936 Olympics. Hitler’s next step was carnage – and so is Japan’s.
I don’t like trashing anybody, but somebody – everybody – must speak out against the genocide of all marine animals. And do not forget these cetaceans are forced into a genocide far worse than a gas chamber. These highly intelligent family oriented mammals are hacked to death with spears and machetes until the seas turn red with their blood and the blood of their families.
The next time you dine with a Japanese remember what stands behind their sly smile – a barbaric quest to slash to ribbons intelligent, peaceful and highly intelligence beings who did no harm except swim in their traditional waters.
Always remember that Japan’s karma (and ours to some extent) is dictated by Fukushima and The Cove.

STOP the slaugher at the Cove
We must start a boycott of all Japanese products until the slaughter at the Cove ceases. Apparently the Japanese do not understand our resolve in the matter but we will succeeded in the end. Stop the slaughter now.

Stop the Slaughter of Whales and Dolphins!!
Stop the Slaughter of Whales and Dolphins!!Shame on Japan for turning a blind eye to this atrocity!! It's a disgrace for any country to slaughter whales and dolphins. Shame on the ambassador of Japan and also the people for not standing up to fight for the rights of these magnificent creatures.
