Posted in: Aide to Kishida says he would hate to see LGBT couple See in context

“there are quite a few people who would abandon this country."

Haha, yes there is a great danger that a huge number of elderly conservatives will pull up stakes, learn another language and move overseas if gays can marry.

Besides, by continually voting in the party that has put Japan in this spot, they have abandoned Japan’s future already.

And Arai has already seen same-sex couples, probably even knows some, but thinks they are roommates or cousins living together to save money.

It’s probably not the bombs but chemicals of some kind. The launch capsules are sealed…..their air handling systems may be contaminated with something. If it was the bombs it wouldn’t be the launch crews, they aren’t near them as much as maintenance people who visit multiple missiles a day.

Oh man, that’s going to mean a 5-second bow and loss of one week’s salary for those involved. And they will be forced to wait an extra month after retirement to join the Board of Directors of a Dentsu subsidiary.

Posted in: Japan to uphold apology if South Korea settles wartime labor issue See in context

Jennie, there is a Korean cultural concept called “han” which has nothings to do with the ethnic designation. https://m.koreatimes.co.kr/pages/article.amp.asp?newsIdx=41770

It’s a sadness and anger and resentment at injustice that is seen as permanent. So nothing the Japanese do other than cease to exist will ever end the anger. So the Japanese efforts are quite literally doomed no matter what they do. They’ll sign an agreement, pay a huge sum of money, and then in a few years it will start all over again.

The Japanese diplomats are doing all this for nothing, the Koreans will throw it all away and demand more moolah in a couple of years.

Look up han Chinese and the ancestors of Japan

Then you'll understand they are the same people squabbling

Different “han”, I mean the Korean cultural concept 한

Posted in: Japan to uphold apology if South Korea settles wartime labor issue See in context

What’s the point of all this? SK repeatedly agrees that it’s all over and done with and then a few years later they declare the previous apology insincere and demand mo’ money, mo’ money. Look up the Korea concept of ‘han’, and you’ll see that this is just a never ending cycle.

Oh, and the “for the children!” is just precious. Virtue signal received. But it’s not a breakfast thing most of the time, it’s a late nite after drinking thing, not an everyday meal. (Oh no, now you’ll have to scold me that drinking is bad.)

Haha, that’s a good one! Can’t happen without a population that aren’t sleepwalking. People here will ALWAYS vote status quo no matter what.

Posted in: Acquittal upheld for ex-TEPCO execs over Fukushima nuclear crisis See in context

They caused devastation of an entire area, drove countless people from their homes, poisoned the site forever, handed everyone a multigenerational bill for cleanup and they literally get to laugh at us as they escape into luxurious retirement without so much as a misdemeanor conviction.

Japan is an utter joke. Third world level corruption and more proof that the law here deserves no respect at all.

I’d say the cops are the last people you want to tell about a problem like this. Just limits your options, and they are going to do nothing to help.

This is purely about harvesting data and decreasing your real control. I’ve got a printer that requires me to register on a website to install an app to align and clean the printheads. Just wait until you have to subscribe to your refrigerator or heater like you do to Office 365. Seriously it’s only a matter of time.

And the leadership is old and rich so they don’t really care about what happens in 20-30 years…their kids will escape to the west.

Posted in: Japan's real wages fall in November at sharpest pace in 8 years See in context

You all act as if this is a problem to the policymakers…..it’s not, it’s their policy. The corporate shoguns are making plenty so everything’s just the way they like it. The population literally does not matter to the leadership….they will never revolt or strike, they will never make demands. The smart ones will leave. The majority of the Japanese public will meekly eat their ramen in dark cold apartments alone until they die.

But they will never vote against the LDP because that would be (sucks teeth) “risky.”

Posted in: Kishida urges wage growth to revive Japan's economy See in context

Policy-wise, this isn't rocket science. 

True IF the goal is a well paid workforce with a bright future. But the real goal is max profits for the corporate shogun and max kickbacks for the bribed pols. And this policy is quite successful for that goal so it will be continued.

Posted in: Kishida urges wage growth to revive Japan's economy See in context

And the Japanese voter will march zombie-like to the polls next election and vote LDP. Forever, no matter what. Nothing will ever change; that’s the way the Powers That Be want it. Kishida is doing exactly what they want him to…and all he has to do is occasionally “urge” higher wages and they fall for it again. After all it would be “risky” to do anything else.

Some grey man in a grey suit with a grey personality in the Imperial Household Agency who has never had an original thought decided they should wear masks because..bimyou. 

All of their actions are planned and approved, from where they stand to how fast and how many times they wave. They are forced to be the very definition of anodyne. They may be rich but I don’t envy them at all.
