Posted in: Japan adopts plan to push clean energy, nuclear to cut carbon emissions See in context

"A government taskforce will “accelerate” restarts of reactors, which have been slowed by stricter safety standards set after the Fukushima meltdowns, the plan says." Right there before our eyes. They're going to relax the rules and then fire 'em up. All just in time for the next earthquake to happen, and the quake hitting is not if, but when. Nothing learned from Fukushima, only damnation if the same fools are in power.

Now if trickle down works, they would pass on some of the profits to their employees, but don't bet on it.

The UN presentation was not Powell's first "blot" on his legacy. The first was his conclusion that soldiers had done nothing wrong at My Lai. If you want to honor the man and his life, then look at his life realistically and learn the lessons that he did and don't glorify.

Posted in: Colin Powell dies of COVID-19 complications at 84 See in context

To date, none of the Neo-cons have been held accountable for the death, misery and destruction that was a direct result of a war based on lie. People have forgotten Judith Miller at the NY Times who kept pushing the "big lie" and here we are again, faced with another "big lie." At the time, we all thought W was a moron, but Trump out did him so now we've forgiven those that have actually created the Trumpian nightmare. Just as Powell did W's bidding at the UN, so have others who are doing Trump's now. Thank you Colin Powell for your life's lessons.

Kuroda saying we have to start now is kinda 20 years too late. Kishida doesn't have any bold policies for climate change, in fact in a questionnaire he responded by saying that we needed more scientific verification that climate change is caused by humans. Good luck Kuroda.

I wish the article provided more details on the students' ideas for moving forward in bilateral relations instead of just a kumbaya moment. It's a good idea, and hopefully will not happen in a vacuum but expand and next time perhaps add Chinese and Taiwanese students to the mix.

Posted in: Kishida cabinet's approval rate at 55%: poll See in context

All going according to plan as the LDP increases their poll numbers going into the fall election. Interesting that this article highlights that the majority of the respondents in a poll wanted a change from the Abe, Suga policies. These numbers conflict with the new administration's high numbers, usually because people will say, "let's give it a chance," or some other worn out fool hardy phrase. People would do well by reading more before the election because if they did, they'd know that AA (Abe/Aso) are still pulling the strings. Suga was a puppet so that Abe could get out of the hot kitchen running away with his mask and tanking numbers. And now Kishida is the same to get the numbers out of the gutter caused by Suga's administration so that the LDP can win the fall election. It's so obvious and so aggravating...

Arguing about his citizenship belies the more important point that climate change is now recognized as being influenced by humans. Unfortunately the deniers will kick and scream to their graves against science just like they do with regards to the vaccinations and masks.

Posted in: Boosting middle class incomes a key policy for Kishida See in context

Abenomics which was basically trickle down didn't work, and only created more income disparity. That's why no one even mentioned Abenomics from around the middle of his long term in office, not even Abe himself. Kishida is not going to succeed in getting people to spend because the people have seen how inept the government was this past year during the pandemic. Many people had to dip into or completely deplete their savings while SMB/SME went bankrupt because of the lack of leadership during a crisis. Good luck with climate change, a stable source of renewable energy and your aging population.

Posted in: Kishida says coronavirus, economy, security top his agenda See in context

The three main agenda points goes without saying, are we supposed to be impressed? I read in the paper that the avg age of Kishida's cabinet is older than Suga's by one year, so don't get your hopes up in thinking that Kishida is thinking about any type of reform. Finally, this club is still run by the AA faction, aka as Abe & Aso. Enjoy.

Posted in: Governors call for securing medical system as COVID curbs ease See in context

The government will once again squander this time away, they've already expended all their time and energy into voting for the PM and the next thing on the agenda will be the general election. Kishida's current focus is on filling posts that will make it palatable for the populace in hopes that it will get the poll numbers up just in time. And while all this is going on, the SOE has been lifted and the LDP will tout this as their economic recovery while not knowing what the infection rates will be this winter. The sad thing is you can read this like a book or watch it play out like a worn out TV drama.

The icing has changed but the cake is still the same ol' LDP c..p. This move was always just a stop-gap measure anyways so that the LDP would not go into the general election with Suga as the PM. Now the LDP will hope that the poles will be favorable for them going into the election.

Repeat offender, attention seeking moron, just quit giving him air time or space on YouTube. But then on the other hand, what is the state of Japanese politics anyways? Nagoya mayor case in point, or even the other LDP clowns. Bad times when you have to choose between juvenile c..p, and seasoned c..p.

Posted in: Suga tells U.N. Olympics were symbol of global unity See in context

"Global unity.." Yes, I believe the theme was something like, "united by emotion?" The crushing debt, and feeling of abandonment and hopelessness by all those impacted by the virus and the socioeconomic fallout is the emotion that comes to mind. As for global unity, I doubt any country will help the Japanese now saddled with debt and taxes for generations to come.
