Posted in: What do you think is the fairest method of income tax? See in context

Not really up to date on this or a tax "guy", but i think taxes should be paid according to income and that's that. We are all able to use services provided by government. Make more, pay more. Companies need to pay in proportion to what they make also, I do think religious organizations should pay taxes also based on what their believers donate, and for people in the lowest income bracket..perhaps tax exemption every other year some relief time to make some savings.. how about direct public voting on government funded projects via internet..do quarterly balloting on defense, infrastructure projects etc...locally. just some ideas.

No one said taxes had to be fair.

as with most cults i.e. religions, de-"nile" is the most common river taken...

in this case, protecting the illusion of the church is the main order of business now

isthistheend: thanks for your feedback and keeping it real by not jumping on the "2nd hand smoke causes cancer" bandwagon..show proof, not conclusions. Most of those studies arrive at the "PC" conclusion to get more funding..real baby real!

apsara: that i agree with..

Lets round up all the smokers in a bay, and shoot them and sell their bodies to science!!

too much?

how do you expect kids here to know any better? Teachers and Parents want to be their friends not show them right from wrong from fear of conflict and being hung out to dry by others!

No one teaches them anything and there are no visible consequences if you do something wrong...they will say they saw it on anime and claim they were crazy..then all is forgiven..released and forgotten.

Also, depends if their families are connected to see what happens...

Posted in: Japan asks China not to escalate fishing boat spat See in context

Leadership skill? in Japan. Both countries have so much more to worry about than some rocks. I think China wants to show its neighbors who the bully is and test reactions..I mean honestly, Japan cannot stand up to China and the U.S. won't go to War over the islands unless there is oil or a terrorist training camp there. The main focus seems to be making money on fishing...so how about a 3-country fishing association/organization to administer the area for all to fish equally and fairly.

Posted in: Japan fattens textbooks to reverse sliding rank See in context

Juku is a ridiculous out-dated system. The Education Minister if he can find time...ask why they need the Juku system at all. I always wonder that since Juku is almost self-imposed mandatory activity who is really making money off the high fees. I also understand that there are no clear studies to the effectiveness (or lack of) of the cram schools.

As an ex-smoker with out a self-righteous chip on his shoulder...businesses should be free to choose smoking or non-smoking. Last time I checked people had a choice which businesses to go to. And, there is no hard evidence anywhere that PROVES second hand smoke causes cancer or any other health risk..Yes there are studies with conclusions but no facts. What is next.. Second hand farts??

Posted in: Japan fattens textbooks to reverse sliding rank See in context

As a teacher of English, Eiken, Toeic and Toefl for the past 14 years in Japan, thicker text books will just mean more students stressed out and a lack of enthusiasm for studying. With more and more students graduating H.S. and "cramming" to pass without retaining anything they learned will not do this society any good. So making even harder for them to study is a great idea...NOT!
