I enjoy trips to Shinchi in Fukushima, which is at the border with Miyagi Ken. Passed by the reactors and saw mounds of packed soil to be disposed of.

Careful about celebrating before the contest is finished. I do not vote because voting is a form of validation for those elected to do as they wish.

Posted in: Osaka metropolis plan rejected in referendum for 2nd time See in context

They should never allow it to happen. If it is not broken, why fix it? There are ulterior motives behind it. It is certainly not for the benefit of citizens.

By calling it a metropolis, the whole prefecture acquires an equal status as far as taxation of property and appraisal value of both land and buildings. In the end, it is an added burden on everybody. And people only think about losing identity.

My sister had to let go of the two health care takers that would come to help my 102 mother because of concerns of Covid 19. After few months of doing certain tasks, she started getting stressed out and we had to put her in a care facility. She seems to be doing ok. But it was a difficult decision.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. begin military exercise as concern about China grows See in context

The. Ryukyus were divided in between China and Japan in an agreement in principle through the help of US presiden Ulyses S Grant. Japan would get the main island of Okinawa and the Amami islands. China would get get the Sakushima islands south of Okinawa. Japan agreed to it but took no further steps while waiting to gain naval superiority through its modernization plans. And we know how Japan declared war on China and imposed onerous war reparations when China was the victim.

The truth of the matter is that war,(and protection), is probably are very profitable for those who manufacture weapons, and for those who lend money to governments to fight wars or to maintain readiness or deterrence postures.

Mr Martin Lohmeyer published an interesting thesis about the Senkaku and other islands claimed by Japan and other countries. And of course, for those who favor Japan no matter what evidence is presented, there is also a counter argument to Lohmeyer’s thesis. Here is the link:

I do not try to favor any point of view but thought about sharing information.

As for the profitability of war, it was Marine Corps Major General Smedley D Butler Who stated in his essay “War is a Racket”, that wars were engineered for the purpose of profit-making of American multinational corporations. Here is the link to the full essay: https://ratical.org/ratville/CAH/warisaracket.html

In the same thought of line about who profits out of wars, Bill Still touches on it in his You-TUBE documental “The Money Masters”. Here is the link: https://youtu.be/mB-pdPaQNKA

it is interesting that after Okinawa was reverted back to Japan, these islands were included as part of Okinawa. Perhaps to continue the flames of animosity alive in order to keep the war profits going?

The establishments do not want the masses to become enlightened with these kinds of information.

Many cases of corruption, swindling, embelezzment, and manipulation surface every day in Japan. All you hear is that they apologize or will resign. No news about indictments, trials, incarcerations, ankle bracelets, passport confiscations, bails of any kinds or amounts.

Posted in: Swapping eggs, white bread for oatmeal linked to lower stroke risk See in context

Never had a stroke in my life thank God,(hope it is not reason to delete post). In the past 5 years I have been eating oatmeal and boiled eggs for breakfast. No more hamburgers, hot dogs, sausages, bacon, chips, sodas, processed foods. Mother is 101 and in good health. We grew up eating fried food using pork lard. But never knew about hot dogs or hamburgers until I was about 18. We also did not eat chips or processed foods. All food was cooked from raw ingredients every day.
