At least we're not suffering alone anymore.

Not to mention this interesting conversation in the thread. W0RF has some crystal ball or something, especially 4 years out from the 2008 election.

You and Obama can go ahead and try to fix the system. I'll go ahead and watch from afar.

I never said Obama was the fix. I'm not his lackey any more than I am Bush's. The only reason I singled him out is that he is an example of someone who realizes that government is there to serve the people.

Until he became President...

This thread makes me want to laugh, but what was said has rang so depressingly true.

How do you become a permanent resident of Japan? I thought foreigners were only allowed there for a few months at a time or something. Also, even being able to live there, I heard it's hard to get things done there as a foreigner, such as getting a decent job and stuff. How did that work out for you? Is it mainly because you're in Tokyo? (even then I heard it's no good) Do you think you would have been able to do it in a small city or town?

There are many routes you can take to get it. I'm married to a Japanese National. I haven't gotten permanent resident status yet, but I'm eligible for it as of next year. I'm currently hold a spousal visa, but it expires next year, so if they don't give me perm status (unlikely), they will renew it for 5 years into the future.

Assuming you have a visa already and speak Japanese, it's not that hard to find a job. Actually, backend programers can usually find a job without knowing Japanese and they will pay for your visa if you are already here. Japanese usually aren't very good at that stuff. Finding a job here is usually about who you know. If you know somebody at a company they can get you in. That's the easiest way.

A small city or town maybe I could of done it. They are shrinking as everyone is moving to the big cities, so they need people. Hard to say.

You can read a lot about getting a visa here.
