Figured they would have developed another kind of vaccine besides mRNA since anti-vaxxers don't like it for some reason.

If you have growth, you don't necessarily need redistribution either. The consumption tax should be lowered to 5% too as that would give relief for the public while also encouraging greater consumption.
The point being with Edano is if redistribution comes first, then growth will follow because the redistributed wealth will be spent. It's the opposite of Kishida that wants growth first with distribution to come after (trickle down Abenomics).
If anyone campaigns on reversing the consumption tax increase back down to 5% or eliminating it for non-pre-made foods, they deserve to be voted in to the assembly.

You have to understand it from the target audience's perspective. I think it's disingenuous of him to associate trans as equaling white, but comedy isn't about being politically correct. It's about eliciting reactions and provoking thoughts. Someone may have loved it and someone may have found it offensive. Why the disparity? Let's talk about why it was offensive. This is how the discourse should be. Through talking we can better understand everyone.

How about concrete details on how you're going to spread the wealth Kishida? At least Edano said something about raising the capital gains tax. The LDP have only increased the consumption tax which hit middle-income and lower people harder. Give the people incentive to spend their hard-earned stagnant wages.

I say let the US continue covering for part of Japan's defense while Japan deals with its financial problems before it decides to increase defense spending. Once it gets financially stable and has the money to spend on defense, they can ease out from under US protection (if that's even possible lol).

It does depend on where the people live. If those 30% all live clustered together in the same area then LDP would only get a handful of seats. I hope those 40% "undecided" choose the path of change over the current status quo.

The LDP have been in power for 22 of the last 25 years. Of course they would say only they're capable of protecting Japan when no other party has been in power for as long.

They could probably get a lot of votes if they say they will remove consumption tax completely on non-pre-made foods.

Kishida pledged during the party leadership election campaign to maintain the "three pillars of aggressive monetary easing, flexible fiscal spending and a growth strategy," in an apparent nod to Abenomics.
We've had 9 years of Abenomics and what has it given the average Taro? Higher taxes and stagnant wages.
The new prime minister has vowed to create a "new Japanese-style capitalism"
Doubling down on Abenomics while redistributing wealth isn't possible.

Remove sales tax from food.
If it's non-pre-made food, I agree completely.

Kagawa prefecture has an ordinance to limit children gaming to one hour on school days, and an hour and thirty minutes on weekends and holidays, which amounts to 8 hours a week. I haven't heard much news about its efficacy or enforcement though.

How can they actually enforce this?
I'm wondering the same thing. Probably placing the onus on the game service provider, as Tencent has been trying to regulate their user base.
Tencent said it would limit gaming time for minors to an hour a day and two hours during holidays, as well as ban children under the age of 12 from making in-game purchases.

The plight of Afghan allies desperately trying to flee the Taliban is exposing divisions among Republicans, with some pressing the Biden administration to help resettle those people who helped the U.S. military and others stoking nativist fears about an influx of refugees.
McConnell is for accepting Afghans that helped the US, Greene is against it citing chain migration.

Oh, I’m sorry, which conservative news sites would you approve of? And why do I have to use liberal news sites only?
How about an unbiased news source, if any of them report news on polls being done. I suggest AP or Reuters as starting points. But to be fair, most if not all polls are biased.
-4 ( +0 / -4 )
Could you pick a more biased "news source?" A conservative site citing a conservative poll released by a conservative group is hardly reliable.
