Posted in: Abe says Olympic stadium to start from scratch; Rugby World Cup misses out See in context

Japan and the Olympics were made for each other: Old men, corruption, nationalism and lies.

Posted in: Japan CPI weak at 0.6%; jobless rate drops to 18-year low See in context

Those part-time, 800 (gutted) yen an hour jobs aren't loosening the purse strings? Go figure.

Posted in: Pentagon chief says U.S. flights over South China Sea will go on See in context

Countries really need to reconsider doing business with China. Will it be economically painful? Yes, of course it will. But how do we think an all out war with China will affect the global economy? We need to quit enabling this country, yesterday. But with most of the world running on pure greed and short-sighted monetary morality, I just don't think it will happen.

Posted in: Abe hails Japanese Holocaust hero Sugihara See in context

The story of Sugihara should be known and told ... by anyone other than Abe and his revisionist / neo-fascist ilk. Quite frankly Abe and the LDP have much more in common with the government of that time than the heroes.

Posted in: One finalist for AKB48 draft this year is just 11 years old See in context

She seems quite young for the casting couch the stands between her and AKB48 "fame". The family should really do their homework before signing on the final dotted line.

Posted in: Gov't discusses ways to keep streets, sidewalks cool during 2020 Olympics See in context

Well, ripping up one of the few remaining greens spaces in Tokyo to build yet another stadium is probably not going to help the cause much.

Ah, the poor West, living in the 21st century all alone while China and Russia play it old school and get exactly what they want.

Posted in: LDP wants 20% nuclear power in energy mix See in context

Why can't these fossils get their corrupt fingers into the solar/wind/geothermal industries and get their kickbacks that way?

Resistance is futile.

I can truly think of no other country that learned less from the nuclear crisis than Japan itself.

Posted in: Major firms heed Abe's call to raise wages See in context

Devalued currency, decimated savings, tax increases and a lifetime guarantee of part-time/temporary/low wage employment. "But hey, here is a 1.4% raise so you can call someone who cares."

Posted in: Abe faces questions over improper political donations See in context

I'm sure the ever vigilant and ferociously independent Japanese press will not rest until the truth has been found and reported to the equally vigilant and concerned populace. nods

Ohhh! An entire bushel of poppycock, and just in time for the weekend!
