Posted in: Trump picks Twitter fight with China See in context

China snubbed President Obama horribly during his arrival at the G20 summit this year. I applaud Mr. Trump for snubbing them back.

Each photo of them is the same, father and son are the center while the ladies happily observe. To me this is misogyny. Subtle? Maybe. Just like Japanese TV.

Posted in: Dentsu's 'power harassment hell' See in context

The reality is very bad. Dentsu is bad. The people at Dentsu are bad. I know this. It is hateful and I fear for any new graduate who joins them.

Seems nice idea. I like some of the costumes very much. Halloween seems to be very healthy (not the candy).

Posted in: Do you think some events at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics should be held in other parts of Japan to cut back on costs, which Tokyo Gov Yuriko Koike is now considering? See in context

I think the marathon should be around Fuji-san, that would be beautiful. Maybe soccer can be in Osaka or somewhere.

Gore should have fought harder. If he had been president we would not be in the mess that we are in.

Posted in: China angered as Japan withholds UNESCO funding over history dispute See in context

I hope UNESCO doesn't need much money. Seems many countries are not paying UNESCO. Was it Israel a few weeks ago that decided to withhold dues?

I think stabbing fellow students is bad even if he was teased.

Posted in: 'Japan: Guilty Until Proven Innocent' documentary shines light on controversial legal system See in context

I recently watched the documentary "13th". I would much rather deal with the Japanese than the Americans. OMG the US Justice System is a complete travesty. "Cash for Kids"?. Ya...Japan has a problem.

Posted in: 'Japan: Guilty Until Proven Innocent' documentary shines light on controversial legal system See in context

Most legal systems are extremely faulty. The USA has a 97% plea bargaining rate which means that many people admit to crimes they did not commit from fear of very harsh penalties if convicted. In Japan the lawyers cannot help you, in the US if you do not have money then the lawyers cannot help you. I hope Japan can improve their justice system, however I would still pick it over most others as is.

Posted in: Clinton tears into Trump on taxes See in context

I think Hillary Clinton will be OK as president. Most modern day candidates weren't around long enough nor exposed enough in national politics to be dragged through the mud like Hillary has been. She is probably not as bad as they make her out to be and she has some very relevant experience. We have had back-to-back 2-term presidents with hardly any experience and the painful consequences are plain to see.

Posted in: By 2030, there will be no full-time employees, report speculates See in context

Bla bla bla. They tried to make everyone contract workers in North America years ago, it failed. Look at the state of policing and tell me contract workers are a good idea. Predictions of the future should be based on data, this is based on stupid.

Posted in: Narita airport proposes new runway, longer operation hours See in context

Nobody wants to go to Narita, it's a travel in itself. Huge boring airport. Expand Haneda and close Narita.

Posted in: 17-yr-old boy jumps to death in front of train in Saitama See in context

I wish that on the way to the train station someone had smiled at him, maybe even said "have a nice day", but at least smiled if they were too shy to speak. It might have made a difference.

Someone is being exploited? This kind of thing must only happen in Japan.

Posted in: 40% of young Japanese single adults are virgins: poll See in context

Does this include same-sex relationships? I have a feeling that there is a lot of man-man love going on and therefore technically not qualifying as virgins.

Posted in: Pew poll: How the Japanese and Chinese see each other See in context

I believe the poll is correct and can understand why people don't like the Chinese. I would say if you asked people based on gender then Japanese women would get very favorable reviews and Japanese men not so good.

Posted in: Last-minute cancellation by Chinese tour groups driving businesses crazy See in context

I have made many bookings in Japan without deposit. However if I use a tour company such as HIS they charge me in advance and have a cancellation policy. I think the Chinese have a bad reputation everywhere and not charging in advance is a mistake.

Posted in: North Korea calls sanctions push after nuclear test 'laughable' See in context

I suppose the US and South Korea don't do anything because China won't allow it. At what point will China do something about them? I'm not sure, however i sense danger on the horizon. It's seems like a game of chicken. The other question is about the motive of the North Korean government. Is it deterrent/security? Leverage? Or are they truly so crazy?

Posted in: Japan warns Brexit may drive banks, pharma investment to EU See in context


German industry would sooner see Greece leave the Eurozone than the UK leave the EU.

Of course German industry would prefer Greece leaves, I'm not sure why you would even think it is necessary to state such an obvious thing. However, it is extremely sad that the British are now being compared to Greece.

Posted in: Japan warns Brexit may drive banks, pharma investment to EU See in context

I may not be an economist however I have been in business a long time. A universal truth that spans generations is that nobody likes doing business with the British. Brexit will allow everyone to put them aside where they can do as little damage as possible. Even take the term "Brexit" as an example, the British became so enthralled with their snappy catch-phrase without having any plan of action to back it up. That is the British way of business, all catch-phrase and no action. Sayonara.

Posted in: Japan warns Brexit may drive banks, pharma investment to EU See in context

Britain is on the verge of complete collapse. They need to revoke Brexit, dump the pound and apologize to the world. The majority of the British population have always been living like paupers, but Brexit will bring them back to the age of industrialization. British seem to think that colonization was a high point for them, but in fact most British lived in squalor worse than the "colonials" in far off lands. These same aristocratic families are now leading them away from prosperity and towards dependence and pauperism once more.
