Posted in: World Rugby advises teams to cover up tattoos at 2019 World Cup in Japan See in context

This is a rugby story and the best players are covered in ink, soccer too, and Olimpics. Why is Japan idolising say Beckom yet are offended by others with tattoos. I'm guessing a lot of rugby players and Olymipcs competitors are going to need to be wrapped up like mommies so as not to offend Japanese...might be a culture thing. Other cultures not so warped.

Systemic problem, nothing will change unless there is a system change. But we all know that's not going to happen.....next. And this is the education ministry at its best.

I'm going to get in first, ganbate Japan under the LDP even growth at below 1% is unattainable it's been years of 0.01% of growth even then the revised figures lower it again. Might be time to change. For all our futures.

Everyone should build a wall, after all China built one and it's still working. A wall can keep people out and keep them in.

Take it to the voters, the perhaps 40% that turn out to vote will caboched this absolutely stupid idea. Disfuncianal systems should not be allowed to change core principles.

Strangerland that's a very good point blaming Democrats when the Republican Party holds power? The President does not appear to be part of the Republican Party so where does this end.

I'm only disappointed he wasn't given this position for life, as Ganbare says again and again his rule is amazing suddenly mediocrity is the new spectacular. I look forward to more urges, pledges and promises. Today is Premiun Friday we have all benifiting from that lets celebrate.

Tomorrow is Premiun Friday and equality will sadly go the way of Premium Friday. There is not a chance that the diet, 70 year old men are going to do anything to catch up. As usual they will make a system so complex that it's worthless. But claim it's on the books.

Posted in: Abe poised to win third term as LDP leader See in context

To be fair, he loves animals, why else would he open a new vetenary University in a economic free zone. And his wife was the honorary president of a school together they love both children well to a point, and animals. Japan needs this couple to stear us all towards a bright future. With increased taxes of course.

Drones are strictly controlled after one dropped radiated water from Fukashima on Sinzes roof. Flying cars? Don't see that happening unless politicians can find a way to earn more money. Probably a tax on each meter used would make it viable. Now that really would be raising taxes...literally.

Posted in: SpaceX says billionaire Maezawa to be 1st passenger on rocket trip around moon See in context

As a billionaire the sky is the limit, obviously. Sadly if I was in his shoes I'd be off my face and remember nothing...what did I do yesterday? Last week? Have no idea. Space did I go? Seem to remember something about weightless, but I was smashed. Saw a blue thing and aliens, but I was so toasted. Is that my shoe? He should be the PM. Who was that?

Scooby snacks, are what makes space travel. Would not mind a Scooby snack and travel to the moon, much easier than saving billions of yen. Did I miss the end of the war on drugs? Because it would seem that if you are rich enough anything goes.

We all agree, but somehow the government is clueless. Perhaps their care givers are unable to express themselves, not having passed the Nihongo test.

Watching Tokyo and the endless problems ,( Arigoto Mr Ishihara) to the point of changing time zones (not a bad idea) who would want to spend so much money. Two weeks + although apparently 2020 is the year Japan catches up with the rest of the world. And we might get to see Super Mario again. Now that's worth a tax increase. Good job Sapporo.

Of course it's a money problem. It's not like the government doesn't have enough money......oh wait.

Raise the wage! Is that too much to ask? Raising tax seems easy, why is it so hard to raise the basic wage? Little hint people with more disposable incomes spend more...might help reach that 2% that seems so elusive. The skill set required to work in this industry is worth way way way more than the current base salery. Is it so obvious? Or just me.

I now fully support The Shinz. He has kept wages low and stymied inflation. He has done such an amazing job. These short term workers are exactly what is needed. After 5 years go away we need younger people and let's face it after five years your way too old to be of use. I'm sure their Japanese skills will be beneficial in their home countries. And who would not want to spend their time mingling with caring for the aged, For a minimum wage. There really needs an overhaul and a 50% + wage rise. Never happen.

Again I'm sorry, it's not fair at all. Seriously it's just not fair. I'm lucky, at the moment. But that can change tomorrow. I'm trying to teach my grandchildren to plan it's not easy but I have to try.

I'm sorry, yes some people want /have to work until death, others don't, it's a choice. And I'm not judging. Each to their own. Politicians have no business lingering on after 60. My point is if they are so smart what are they doing collecting a massive salery and unable to retire? Whoops tax up to sustain their lifestyle.

Beg to differ, people work and pay to retire. If your smart you plan and retire well before 70. There are reasons why there is a retirement age, outdated education, a yearning for the golden age 50 years ago. Really if you can not relax and enjoy your twilight years you have seriously made a huge mistake or your in politics. Well there is a doozy.
