This is depressing news, bureaucrats are no doubt infighting about the loss of a section title, budget and control over the new bloated do nothing bureaucratic kaffufel. While children suffer with limited if and support or over watch.

on a positive social normal interaction with children I was at hospital, waiting with others mostly older people and a toddler started screaming huge sound. Mum was so embarrassed but everyone smiled nobody I saw was upset. People don’t hate children just politicians ignore them.

Where should the first Tesla plant in Japan go? I’m hoping right in the heart of Aichi!

no I’m thinking the same place as the bed share thing, growing plants not okayed by the JA, Absolutely nowhere, Toyota boss has already said he sees no need for changing petroleum based business model. And he has paid too many politicians to be ignored now.

In context that allowance on top of salary and other allowances, alone is the same amount of money 3 or 4 families live on a year! With children. And you can be sure it’s a local travel allowance with a seperate overseas allowance. They make me sick.

Hard to feel sorry for manufacturers when they refused to “trickle” down the profits in the past 30 years. Now all they have is external forces to blame those foreigners are crippling their slavery business model. Just wait for them to be asking the tax payers to pay their debts Sorry tax payers are pretty much tapped out after businesses took your lead. Maybe a donation of 12 million yen from diet members might help.

I don’t care about other countries I pay tax here, I earn my salary here. The care and concern about tax payers in Japan is woeful, it’s assumed by politicians that suffering by the people is a badge of pride, something to be counted on. Try that in a developed country.

1 million yen monthly transportation and communication allowance 

So present members have been getting 12million extra a year for years? Is that right? And this is on top of their extraordinary salary? Transport? and when first reported the communication part was mail costs? These people are something not close to human. 12 million a year that’s 3 times the average salary on top of their fanominal salary….and there are other benefits too. Somebody should work out how much tax per citizen money goes to paying the hundreds of these hereditary leaches. And they begrudgingly give ¥100,000 to a narrow gap of people, when they get so much more for transport and envelopes?

but I just don't think it's right to force anyone (to be vaccinated) 

‘And that’s the takeaway from his wide ranging comments? You don’t want it fine don’t, just don’t expect to be welcomed to events involving crowds. There are much bigger issues to be faced than an individuals choice. I love having choice and if it’s so important to me I accept that I will face the loss of many things that through my choice I’ve lost. That’s called freedom of choice, I choose not to be welcome amongst people for my personal views. Luckily the earth isn’t flat and I got vaccinated so see those who made the choice through a fence.

Why stop at 2 space agencies I propose one for each prefecture. The erected officials in space suits, it would at least give tv ratings a boost having governors and diet members dance together to gauge popularity. Then win massive tax payer funded unaccountable funds for their area. It’s the Japanese way.

Posted in: Japan's economy contracts on shrinking consumption, exports See in context

Japan has never had a coronavirus lockdown. But it has periodically asked businesses to close or limit hours under “states of emergency.” It has also encouraged social distancing. That has crimped consumption and private investment. Private consumption sank 1.1% in July-September from the previous quarter, according to Monday’s data.

Hang on Bars and restaurants are one of the lowest paying industries in Japan yet are mentioned as a cause for crimped consumption? Social distancing also mentioned? We buy less because of this? Private investment? Is impacted by “states of Emergency??

Id hazard a guess nobody has money to spend but the government department can’t say that. when cost of living goes up food, fuel, tax, and the wages don’t, not a lot left for the domestic individual to spend. Even though 40% are part time workers and make up on paper 60% of the economy. It’s a miracle Japan is still the third largest economy, but slave labour does have benefits.

They are going to another country, so what! The security around them is to stop a right winger killing him. I’d move too if the locals are so angry and volatile that my wife, myself are at risk. They were hounded out. Then disparaging comments about leaving? Can’t win leaving is the best option for most “royals”.

Pictures like this are invaluable for early childhood teachers, it easily conveys to children that people like this are to be avoided no matter what they promise. And emulating them will only distance you from what is considered a normal human condition. Leaving them devoid of friends except those of similar circumstance. Like a special protective wing in a jail.

With a government leadership team like that I’d say “precarious position” was the best spin that could be used to describe the chances of normal people being considered in any decision let alone foreign conundrums.

So the answer for them is more state welfare for businesses, not any talk about anything considered actual people, you know those who drive 60% of the economy domestically. Guess they are supported by being allowed to have a part time job.

They are going to be so “surprised” when Japan inc makes record profits while the need for food banks are at record highs. Birth rate drops further and tax take from expenditure plummets. But they can muse on that after a shofar drive to their favourite restaurant. But still number 3 economy despite their evolvement.
