Hitler took this symbol over. Similar to how racists too over the stars and bars confederate symbol. Feelings toward these symbols will not change no matter their original meanings. You can't go any deeper than how people believe about something.

@Toshihiro, well said. Except I don't think Abe is hawkish, he is a realist. The reality is that the world will never be peaceful, and civilized democratic nations absolutely must be very strong. Thugs of the world only understand strength. You do not try to reason with Hitler types, no matter how nice they seem. He fooled most of the German people. And they are very smart. Just were not wise.

Eh to, if people were Ethyl and me, Hollywood would be bankrupt. We have a very low tolerance for non excellent movies. Very few excellent movies since about the 1950s, a few after then...

Japan needs a very strong military. Defense and offense. Not to attack again, but offense for self defense.

産んで、産んでくれ!That's the only real long term solution! Japanese young people need to marry and have BABIES! 産めよ!It'll take a few years, but Japan desperately needs more babies.

Sid, I've had fibromyalgia many years, and whew, if she has it, I and other sufferers understand! It is a crazy mess, this fibromyalgia. Inexplicable. I wish her well in these new duties, and think she will be an excellent representative for Japan.

Posted in: Celebrate Christmas, New Year's Eve at Hilton Tokyo See in context

Serrano, hey, it's Christmas! Plan for it one time a year, like we do. Anyway, we absolutely love Christmas in Japan. Better than America. We usually try to go to the lunch buffet at Ebisu, forgot hotel name, but wow, it is great! Beautiful decor, atmosphere, food is excellent! Not in Japan this Christmas, but these hotel Christmas meals are wonderful in Japan! Sad, but I don't know of a single place in America that compares.

Posted in: Neighboring suburbs in Japan face divergent futures as one grays, one grows See in context

It's a difficult situation for Japan. Very sad to see so many young people not marrying and not having kids. As an American, my maternal great grandmother had 15 children! Grandmother had 5, my mother had 7 of us, we have one, but wanted more (couldn't have kids, medical reason). Materialism has definitely gotten in the way of children. This problem in Sakura is like the kindergarten problem, a deep competition for people! And, immigration is NOT the answer. That's just moving people from one country to another and changing the language, traditions, and culture. Don't get me wrong, I love melting pot places like California, Hawaii, but the world needs homogenous societies like Japan. Have kids Japanese.

I see people writing the derogatory word, j. a. p., too often on car forums I like to read. I call them out, usually by replying what if you wrote the word nig etc. I am not politically correct, but I am respectful.

Posted in: An increasing number of companies in Japan have banned employees from smoking during their work hours, aiming to resolve low productivity caused by their smoking breaks. Do you agree with this policy? See in context

I loathe coffin nails. Like the accused racist says about his different race acquaintance, I have many friends who smoke. I'm for freedoms, and this is a bit hard, but I'd have to say if sucking cancer sticks interferes with work, I reckon Ye Olde Boss should scold you a bit. I have a family member right now undergoing chemo therapy for lung cancer caused by smoking...

Posted in: Under the current labor system in Japan, companies are required to keep employees who wish to continue working after retirement age until at least the age of 65. The government wishes to raise the ceiling to 70. Do you think that is a good idea? See in context

Good idea, taj! USA congress should have to do the same, use same health insurance as us regular people who they look down on, same retirement, and term limits.

I wonder if Japan would have been better off if this emperor system had been abolished after WWII. Only speculation. But, I agree that our taxes should not be used to pay for these ceremonies. I'm certain the family can fully afford to pay themselves. I loathe all this king/emperor system.

Good. I welcome any help to keep thugs at bay! I stopped going to Ropppngi years ago because of jerks there, even though there are several restaurants I like. Maybe I'll go back, IF it is very safe.
