Posted in: Prosecutors seek 10-year-term for ex-MtGox bitcoin chief Karpeles See in context

I don't know if Karpeles is guilty or not BUT his case is another  that is going through the totally bizarre, less than 3rd world ""justice system"" theatre of the absurd all round.

But he is an example of someone on bail, Ghosn should be out on the same! a At the very least.

Like I said absurd!

Posted in: Abe says he is aiming for constitution change by 2020 See in context

In theory I have no problem IF JAPNESE want to reform their constitution...……..but is that really the case??!!??

I DONT think so, this is about abe more interested in the past(ie his grandfather, he wants him to be shown in better light than the darker light he is RIGHTFULLY under!). abe doesn't care about Japan's future, just pretends too!

07:37 & 07:50 posts NAIL what abe is up to, don't be fooled!

Posted in: Language skills remain major concern for foreign nursing care workers See in context

And there is no way J-companies are going to promoter these foreigners in any meaningful way over time...…….so the golden arches may well be better.

But I suspect the number of foreigners to Japan will decline over time, at least the ones thinking of learning the lingo etc,

Japan just isn't worth the squeeze!

Posted in: Language skills remain major concern for foreign nursing care workers See in context


This stupid idea has ALREADY been tried and to say it failed miserably seems like you are making a +ve comment on the situation

Bottom line, if strict Japanese abilities are a requirement there is NO WAY IN HELL they will attract any suckers in any sort of quantity

Posted in: Ruling bloc to agree on tax reforms spurring car, home purchases See in context

It pains me to have to watch this country dying right in front of me, BUT to have abe & his band of merry IDIOTS start sticking knives into its own...…….

This is way beyond seriously messed up & the pain is coming MUCH FASTER than predicted, witness them trying to scam people from 3rd world countries to work for slave wages in crappy living conditions...………

The future is looking uglier day by day

Posted in: 'Call of nature' spurs assemblyman into driving at 169 kph See in context

Do like the truck drivers do, carry an empty pet bottle with you LOL!!!

Posted in: Fructose link to diabetes may be different for sodas than fruit See in context

As I have said for ages, soda is SLOW POISON!!

Quaffing the odd pop is fine, if you drink it daily, NOT good. If you have several a day...….very bad.

I didn't drink a lot(except as a kid I often OD'ed on the stuff), thankfully I stopped drinking the crap about 15+year ago & I stopped knowingly each ketchup as well, out with mayo & I also try to avoid anything in quantity that is sugared up & overly processed garbage laced with as many chemicals as cigarettes!!

It IS going to come out eventually that these heavily processed foods people eat are a BIG reason for a lot of illnesses/issues people are facing, folks cut out the crap best you can!

Posted in: 'Black Panther' poised to become an Oscars heavyweight See in context

And laughing at someone getting upset at "gangster like." That sounds about white....


My post  was perhaps too short to read much into it so let me further clarify it, I don't watch race the guy was, if he looked more like Eminem & acted like him I would have the SAME criticism.

IMO making that character "gangster like" to me was not needed, brought the movie down some, it could have been done better.

There are plenty of movies where gangster type characters would fit in fine, in fact would be worse WITHOUT them.

As I said the movie was ok & all the +ve vibes from it, I am cool with that, BUT I stand imo of the gangster like character, was a bad choice imo. That's it, don't read too much into things!

Posted in: Diet passes bill to accept more foreign workers See in context

I think Cricky is correct, Japan is now too far gone to recover in any meaningful way, I preached from the mid 90s that Japan should have thought of ways to allow foreigners to stay here, LEGALLY, with the same supposed rights as locals. Not a super easy way but reasonable, but NO WAY IN HELL THAT WAS GOING HAPPEN!!

Fast forward to today!! And now we have a new very shoddy system that is very half a$$ed & simply RIPE for more & MORE ABUSE!!

Japan continues to get it wrong, so horribly wrong!

The country is going to have to implode before it has a chance to start anew, hello then to life more like rural China or NKorea!!!  BUT I think a GREAT MANY Japanese would be happy with that!!

Posted in: Ghosn admits he signed papers on post-retirement pay; Saikawa also questioned See in context

Folks there is a TON of what ifs, he said he said, she saids etc...……

No idea WHAT to believe. Sounds like he MAY have tried to hide current income to be paid later, as a few have said you still MUST report that in the year it was to be earned, that is IRRELEVANT to when he gets paid!!

SO, clearly the prosecutors DO NOT want a trial, they are going for the FORCED CONFESSION, very unbecoming!!

This MUST, rather should go to trial, but then the prosecution etc would actually have to do their jobs would they are loath to do

Go to trial damn it, this kidnapping etc is very very BAD!!

Posted in: Wild boar bites off woman's finger See in context

Members of a local hunting club captured the animal near an elementary school in a residential area by stabbing it with knives and striking it with police batons and other weapons.

What the...… cant make up this nonsense!! Clearly they needed a GUN to do one of two things:

Stand back take a shot to put the animal down, choices are normal bullet(not a shotgun please!!) or tranquilizer!

Mobbing the animal with knives, sound like a bunch of fools, savages

Why on earth these kinds of communities are NOT better prepared for wild animals is beyond me, it AINT rocket science!

Posted in: Police arrest 11 Chinese for working without visas; 47 others missing See in context

This was not the fault of the illegal aliens but completely the fault of the greedy contractors. I saw this happen to one of my best friends from high school. The situation is in no way unique to Japan.

Yeah, BUT I bet in your country when CAUGHT there were consequences for the owners, as we see countless time in Japan, the OFFENDING companies, mostly remain nameless & blameless!!  But certainly SHAMEFULL!!

While I understand lawyers need to do WHATEVER for their clients it does BEGGER BELIEF that forcing another vehicle to STOP on a highway & in the express lane no less does NOT constitute dangerous driving.

Folks the problems are MORE than just low pay & crappy conditions at day care centres, the THIRD problem is & it IS important

Posted in: Prince's remarks become hot topic in Japan See in context

Royal family members CLEARLY need to be able to communicate to the outside world.

The Prince kind a bungled it with his daughter BUT brought up IMPORTANT points on upcoming ceremonies relating to the Emperor(s)

We need to hear more from the family and LESS from the IHA!!

Posted in: Abe, Macron arranging to meet at G20 to discuss Nissan-Renault alliance See in context

This whole idea that XXX company is some nationality is just STUPID!

Yes Nissan did start as a Japanese company but read the damned article Renault OWNS 43% of NISSAN!!

NEWS FLASH, that make Nissan an INTERNATIONAL company NOT a JAPANESE one


This is going to get really hairy, I as many others have been saying Ghosn may well be guilty of things but Japan is looking incredibly STUPID with how this is going down

Posted in: Former Morning Musume singer Yoshizawa gets suspended sentence over hit-and-run See in context

This is BS!! She should NOT be able to BUY freedom, she should be JAILED!!

Celebrities & women(she is both so DOUBLE favoritism here!) should not get light sentences! Unfrigging believable!

If this was anyone here on jt there no way we would get off like she has this is SO WRONG!!

Posted in: Prince Fumihito stands firm over postponement of daughter's marriage See in context

Folks lets not forget when she marries she gets a huge lump sum of sayonara $$$, think it was 100million....someone correct me if I added too many zeros but I recall it IS substantial amount of ca$h!

Posted in: Prince Fumihito stands firm over postponement of daughter's marriage See in context

What the hell, this money issue ONLY Y4,000,000 crazy!

IF this is an issue all the guy has to do is set up a payment plan with mom's ex(would likely agree I bet) or get a loan, pay moms ex & start monthly payments to said bank!

Then tell dad to get STUFFED & mind his own business.

IF I was this guy I would BAIL, marriage is hard enough to pull off without ending up divorced & unable to see kids if you have any, add is this mess that is the royal way! I would rather live under a blue tarp under a bridge!
