Another day, another anti-Japan protest stunt. You can set your clock to it.

@Ganbare - Umm how is this an anti-Japan protest? The opposition leader was protesting against alleged corruption by the SK government. Nothing to do with Japan whatsoever.

Revive profitability?

Not with my money!

I have millions of yen to buy a car in Japan this year.

I won’t be buying a Nissan though...

Is this Ichiro hitting his son? Maybe the kid couldn't hit .300 and he was just showing him how?

The headline could have been written a little better. I don't think we want to train gropers.

The taxi driver, Katsuhiro Komori, was arrested and told the police that he does not remember what happened, according to the police.

Even more the reason to call it quits their pal. If you don't remember hitting multiple people, your mind might be going.

A co-worker of Komori said he had never heard of Komori causing an accident and that the veteran driver did not have any problems at work.

As for your co-worker, well he also seems delusional. Time for this dispatch company to pack it up and call it a day. What was their name again?

A lot of numbers, stats, and "facts" being thrown around here.

Zero solutions, ideas, or common sense to deal with the issues.

Excuse me for needing more evidence.

You don’t need evidence. You aren’t going to be exercising judgement on this case.

However, nothing the article described it as a miniature bat and the boy felt the need to flee. Either way, the father was beating his son. If you hit me with a baseball bat of whatever size, the police would be I would after you.

For the dedicated self-embalmer, nothing beats Everclear. And, with Everclear, ANYTHING can be a 'drink'. And it's PURE and it's CHEAP. Get yourself one of those seltzer gizmoes, a couple of empty bottles with 'White Claw' labels, and liquid-phase haute couture at ANY % EtOH you want or can tolerate and you'll be ready to emulate all of those fashionable East Coast alcoholics with custom made flavoured liver bombs, duii delights, broken family fajitas, gin disses, anything a spongy brain can imagine. Yeah! Alcohol! Nothing raises the IQ or improves the disposition like a toxic industrial solvent as in in-toxic-ation. Spoiled grain, doubly concentrated spoiled grain, what could be better for relaxation than concentrated yeast poop? ... pssst..pst pssst... OH? THAT much better? And doesn't cause chronic diseases? And helps with ALL of those other things? REALLY? Why is it illegal? Ah, Corporate lies and ignorance, I see. Well, I'll drink to that since I have no CHOICE.

Japan will eliminate the tariffs on U.S. wine within five to seven years after the trade agreement goes into effect, the Nikkei reported without giving its sources.

Why within five to seven years? Why not with immediate effect?

The ripped-off Japanese consumer has waited long enough for reasonably price, high quality, red wine from the USA.

Anyone who believes there is a winner in the current crop of Democratic presidential candidates is in for a rude awakening when Trump gets re-elected. Wake up Democrats, you've got a long way to go.

It a sign of the times, if you're a Foreigner then you get the highly public blame, but if you're Japanese, you'll be okay.

Sadly it has always been like this for as long as I can remember. Japanese law has always been a scam, and racist. But at least now everybody knows it.

The question now is, what are Japan going to do about it?

If I hear the reply "This is Japan", my only thought would be "Yes, this is Japan. Oh dear Japan".

For steaks... Sadly most of the American Beef imported into Japan and made available to me... is not of great quality, and the equivalent Japanese Beef is not good either for the price range of below 300yen/100g.. Aussie Beef is ok, but the price now is hitting the roof. As for Japanese Wagyu beef... hah, that's way off my my purchasing list locally unless I find a really good discount.... I doubt that that type of beef is subjected to higher import duties as, it has no competition .. just like certain Super-cars.

“America is quite capable of manufacturing many "superior" goods.”

Unfortunately, we here in Japan are too often denied those superior American (and other countries) goods. Our recompense for being compelled to accept inferior domestic products, the dubious satisfaction of knowing that taking one for the team is its own reward.

Japanese may indeed buy German cars, but they hate being reminded of their propensity for tokenism designed to forestall closer examination of its (compared with Germany) far more protected automobile market. The value of German foreign auto imports is five times greater than Japan’s.

Lol. Lots of legal action coming then! In one famous UK food chain, they now prefer to monitor the staff for thefts rather than the customers. A lot has to do with the law. You can get sued for physically 'stopping' someone. Technically, it can be 'assault'. I think it's dumb, but there you go. What if someone grabs me and I fall over and break my leg? Law suit. What if I'm innocent and I'm acqused of theft in front of people, which then damages my 'reputation'? Law suit. And so on... Good luck with that business!

USA has greatly encouraged global trade with No or very low tariffs while there is little reciprocation globally. This has been the engine of China's miracle growth. US low on saving but big on buying products. Now US seeks some ability to sell in demand products to these nations. If you think Japan has given equal share then look around as it's so rare to see a US made auto but in USA over 25% autos are Japanese cars. And YES they are the most reliable cars in the world but USA makes some good ones too.

Protesting is the easiest thing on the planet. You don't need a brain for that, all you need is legs that you can walk with. You don't even need a face for a protecting, cover it with a black mask so no one knows that you are just a parasite.

In the developed world America has the highest rates of gun homicides which cost the country $229 billion every year. America has the most mass shooting in the developed countries. America has the highest numbers of school mass shootings.

As of August 31, 2019, 297 mass shootings have occurred in 2019. This averages 1.2 mass shootings per day. In these shootings, 1,219 people were injured and 335 died, for a total of 1,554 victims.

But none of that matters to the gun nutters.

As for the Hong Kong local's, they all have BNO (British National Overseas) passport, 

Only those that were already permanent residents in HK in 97 and not liking elsewhere. Many youths that lived only in HK do not have it as their parents were not settled. Many that come from Mainland were fleeing that hell, and they have no BNO.

should plan to migrate out, they will easily get citizenship in the west.

Nothing is easy. Canada is one of the only Western country that could give citizenship to many of them, but not to all, that would be for young professionals. Other Western countries would pick a handful in professions they need. The Brits... well, if they wanted them, they'd have given the full citizenship in 97, not that discounted status, and that's not "leaders" like Johnson that will do anything. The BNO allows them to leave and travel, not to settle. Taiwan and Singapore are small places, they cannot take so many. Japan...er, forget. Then relocating is costly, particularly for certain professions. If you own a business or a shop, it's bad timing to sell , so you'd lose most of the value of your properties and if you in addition you are still repaying loans, you are trapped. What happens to pensioners ?

Will JT now interview pro China supporters? 

Jackie Chan has had his 15 minutes on JT many times. He's the only sincere fan of the regime. All the others "support" because they have no choice.
