This would be a concern for gun owners and reloaders if we were to take Mr. Obama at his word. However, during the campaign we saw Mr. Obama say one thing to one group and contradict himself to another.


Hi Jay.
That is good to hear, Thanks. Anyway I am so disappointed that Yankees lost yesterday!!! Matsui did not make any hit too


I'm a Yankee in the sense that I was born and raised in Massachusetts, in the northeast region of the United States. I've lived in Japan for a while now, and I can't say I'm offended at all by the way the word "Yankee" is used in Japanese. It's in no sense used as a put down to Americans, regardless of the word's origin.


GTO was cool.

Too bad I only got to see the anime here. They say live action series is pretty good as well.


Hi There

I don't watch TV, so I don't know GTO and Dragon Sakura both. ha ha ha Anyway I feel easy to know American poeple don't care this story.

Oh..the story sound similar like the current TBS TV drama - "Dragon Sakura". An ex-gangster lawyer trying to reform the high school school. :)

To us Americans, a Yankee is a person from the Northeastern region of the country. Any person born in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts or Maine is a Yankee.

I myself am not a Yankee, but I have lived up in that region. (For 5 years I lived in New Jersey.) From what I have seen of them, calling bad and rude children 'Yankees' makes PERFECT sense.


Good story! I'm reminded of the derogatory words "White trash" or "Eurotrash" to describe sloppy Westerners.

But you have to change the spelling of "soupland" to "soapland" or I get really confused about what service is provided. Hmm... now I will smile all day long!!!


I loved to watch GTO!!!
Mm... I think the problem starts when there are too much usage of English in Japanese language. I don't like it at all because it can erode the language.
Do Japanese find it offensive if people can them Japs?


I like American dog ;-)


Is the the story line similar to GTO??
