For Eppee-the point being that your gay baker is producing delicious baked goods that you and the people in your neighborhood have pleasure in buying.

Mrs. Sugita wants more taxpayers to pay for her useless salary and the hereditarily entitled progeny she squirts out and whom will have no choice in the matter.:)

Posted in: Japan pulls out stops to improve nightlife for foreign tourists See in context

A lot of uninformed crosstalk on this thread.

Have DJed in Japan.

24 hour trains would help the nightlife industry here.

The 風営法 laws pertaining to clubs and setting the midnight limit on clubs and dancing always depended on who you knew and paid , especially the organizers, promoters connections.

There have always been businesses

operating unmolested outside the limit.

Silly girl.

Don't you know if you are going to do that it has to be at a proper Yakuza established institution just down the road that has passed the appropriately stuffed envelope to the local constabulary?

OMG- corporations are reaping a profit from neo-liberal, tax payer supported market fluctuations.

Nothing could make me happier over this New Year

What wonderful and surprising news.

Looking forward to the inevitable and concomitant news of wage stagnation and rising poverty!

Imagine-god forbid-actually enforcing anti-discrimination laws! Instead of setting up a ghetto website where marginalized minorities are actually afforded the privilege of giving up their hard earned money to rent property! Imagine another first world country with websites like this and "foreigner houses"!

Fxgai- read some literature. Social, political and yes racial pressures in the case of marijuana all have lead to cycles of criminalization and decriminalization of certain substances. Read up on some of the losers who partook of Vin Mariani https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vin_Mariani.

Often see this combination of a statuesque, shapely model/"talent" and a grossly disproportionate male "comedian", politician, businessman, celebrity. I wonder why that it? Even "vertically challenged" celebrities abroad ( and I'm no one to speak) don't seem so unbalanced next to taller starlets.

Another menace to society apprehended.As always, I stand in respectful awe of the probity, rectitude, and unerring moral compass of the Nipponese constabulary when they pounce on such arch-criminals.

What extraordinarily good news! Surely these warriors in the service of Japan's economic well-being deserve to be so lavishly rewarded above all others? Look at their exemplary record of service; it speaks for itself and are not such rewards based upon a long record of meritorious service? Fortunately, there are no whiffs of such scandal that they may have partaken of any of a host of illicit substances in the privacy of their own home , or the ever watchful local constabulary would have descended swiftly like avenging angels to right their heinous misdeeds.

Fanatstic use of my income and residential tax dollars (minus any rights or welfare benefits) to apprehend this terror to society that is unparalleled by any apparent others!

Posted in: New Renaissance Party backs use of medical marijuana; gets mixed reaction See in context

Legalization is the rational decision and is a cost effective demonstrable benefit to a vast amount of people, hence I give it little chance here. The entrenched special interests of drug companies, alcohol, tobacco and big business concerns override this.

According to Reuters the terrorists tortured and then murdered patrons who could not recite passages from the Koran. To say that said religion had nothing to do with their mindset seems a bit disingenuous to say the least

Look at the top headlines about vows to increase wages and this one on corporate malfeasance ...pure theater. They suffer no consequences except an amakudari soft landing or generous transfer. Where are the fraud prosecutions?

There was a brief heyday for such alarmist texts back in the late 80's and early 90's. I remember reading one called "The Coming War with Japan". Laughable now in retrospect

Posted in: Study suggests Japanese workers are deeply distrustful of their employers See in context

"Rigid labor laws' in the same sense that the anti-obscenity laws mosaicing genitals are 'rigid' yet allow thriving pornography and prostitution industries. In Japan, the letter of the law and enforcement are often two vastly different things.

Posted in: Study suggests Japanese workers are deeply distrustful of their employers See in context

And with good reason. Companies outright theft of employees salaries through unpaid overtime, compulsory work related entertainment and purchases of a corporation's goods and suspicious bankruptcies and restructuring that leave them with unpaid salaries are numerous. And there is little avenue for legal recourse or government enforcement of labor laws. A true corporate kleptocracy.

Societies everywhere would benefit more from an educated populace focused on politicians' immoral policy-making and fiscal indiscretions rather than a celebrity -obsessed culture like focus on their sexual peccadilloes.

Hmm, again with the "urging". Must be Groundhog Day because I swear the same headline has appeared multiple times during Abe's tenure. It's revealing that when it is a matter of filling the administrations or its cronies coffers the forces of compulsion and coercion are used but with this issue that so crucially effects the life of the average Taro Suzuki we get this disassociation and impotent pleading
