Damn, why so many old people that killed?


I've never heard of so many elderly suicides in my life. Man! What's the deal?

Because the Japanese government support for the elderly is nothing short of appalling! The government think its more important to spend billions of yen increasing their military power (that is not needed) and to give away billions of yen in support of wars in other countries that (Japan has no involvement in). And the money they are giving away has come from the taxes of the same elderly who are killing themselves who are doing so as they can no longer support themselves. But as long as Kashida looks like "The Man" that makes it all good.

To all the tree huggers objecting to this how about give an alternative rather than your normal moaning and complaining. Heres what you have all said so far: Nuclear power no, its bad for the environment. Hydro dams no because its bad for the environment, kills trees and animals. Wind farms no because its bad for the environment, can't recycle wind turbine blades which get buried. Solar farms no because its bad for the environment, solar panels can't be recycled and need to be buried. Can't use coal or oil because its bad for the environment.

Unless you have an alternative idea how about just stop moaning and try be happy with life.

Of all the strange news often in the media here this is the one I just don't get! There are thousands of people in Japan who would happily take a child and raise them as their own and give them the life they deserve! Why is there not a system in place for this to happen?!!

You can love to hate the US, but without The US military presence, China would be out of control.

I disagree. China will only ever make a lot of noise & doubt if they will get involved in any real conflict when all of their income is in trade deals with almost every country in the world. If they do anything stupid & the world stops their export income they are dead.

Posted in: Undeclared income of Japan's wealthy hits record high See in context

I'm not surprised at this! Last year a total of just under 70% of my income went back to the Japanese govt in some form of tax. Some of you might not be aware but Citizen tax, Medical insurance, Pension and Company registration tax are all based on the income of that person. I am seriously considering moving my business to another country with the loss of local peoples jobs.

So between military funding and recent donations to a war that Japan has nothing to do with is around ¥45 trillion! I wonder how many aged care facilities could be built for that Japan! You know the ones I mean...the ones where the government helps take care of the elderly who gave you all their tax money to give away. All you are currently doing Mr Kashida is stirring the pot thats bringing unwanted attention to Japan in regards to conflict. I feel Mr Kashida you are not unlike Mr Putin in you actually would like to see japan at war.

Posted in: Japan cracking down on illegal taxis as tourism boom drives demand See in context

Adding to my comment above I use a private taxi very often from a bar I drink at to my house, Private Taxi ¥1000, normal taxi ¥3500. So if the private taxi is still making a profit at ¥1000 then the taxi companies can comfortably do it for ¥2000 and still make a profit. Taxi companies get big discounts on gasoline, tires, replacement cars etc. if a normal taxi was ¥2000 (in my case) I would use them, but not while they are being greedy.

So if Japan does not want private taxis they should do what any other country would do in the same situation, Lower the price of your taxis and compete them out of the market. Typical large Japan corps, they want all the big profits. Its called Greed

So why is Japan not stronger on punishment for unrestrained children in cars?!! There needs to be education on this.

Perhaps the Japanese government should stop sending billions of yen as aid to a war they have nothing to do with and give it to the people of Japan who's taxes fund that money they are giving away.

And yet the Japanese government thinks its best to give away millions of tax payer dollars to a war on the other side of the world that is NOT Japans war rather than give support for their own elderly who helped supply all those tax dollars they are giving away! Well done Japan!

Posted in: Kishida plans income tax cut for households and corporate tax breaks See in context

I would suggest lowering the income tax substantially and raising the consumption tax. Just throwing numbers say drop income tax buy say 20% but raise consumption tax by 10%, that way foreign tourists are helping subsidize the difference

The baby population will take another decline even further because of this decision and a stupid one at that. The reason they have the deceased husband's sperm is because he provided it and so clearly wanted children, OMG.

She never had the deceased husbands sperm.

Why not spend $10 mil USD and build 4 or 5 new aged care facilities in Japan to take the pressure of families that are forced to take in the elderly.

What's wrong with taking care of YOUR elderly? Your own parents. Not like you are being forced to take in some strangers

And how are people going to have an income if they need to stay home? Just escalates the problem & results in family murders as seen almost daily in the media.

Be careful Japan! I am self employed and employ 5 staff. Last year the govt took 70% of my income away in various taxes. If it becomes higher than that I am better off shifting my business to a nearby country with my staff then unemployed.

If the Japanese govt does not do something to support not only couples having children but also stopping younger people leaving Japan to work they will end up with a country that has more foreigners in it than Japanese. Making it no longer Japan.
