Posted in: Do you think the U.S. operation to monitor Internet users and phone calls is necessary for national security? See in context

The NSA did reveal a terror plot on New York City's stock exchange in Wall Street that was foiled before it happened. But my mind is still boggled that the NSA & Homeland Security had failed miserably to stop the two bombers in Boston before they successfully carried out their attack. National Security at it's finest, folks!

If Hashimoto resigns, Shintaro Ishihara will once again become a lone nut.

Posted in: Censure motion against Hashimoto voted down See in context

Who know? One day Hashimoto will say something that's so outrageous, it will be like throwing a hornet's nest onto a bonfire. Then he'll have no other choice but to step down.

According to Wikipedia, o ut of the 126 million people who live in Japan, there are over 100,000 members of the uyoku dantai (right-wing groups) made up out of 1,000 diffrent groups. That's a very small number to the Japanese population.

Posted in: 'Moe' madness: Gov't realizes selling power of cute 2D girls See in context

Back in 2010, Shintaro Ishihara passed the "Tokyo Metropolitan Ordinance Regarding the Healthy Development of Youths" that creates self-regulation among anime/manga artists. And now the Japanese government is beginning to turn to the moe genre for support.

Since this takes place in Japan (a country with strict gun-control laws), I want to ask just one question. "Where on earth did he get a gun from?"

Posted in: Gov't - but not Ishihara - backs away from Hashimoto's comfort women comments See in context

"Prostitutes and militaries have co-existed throughout history".

Shintaro Ishihara is starting to sound like a far-right version of a pimp.

Posted in: Abe's 'stealth' constitution plan raises civil rights fears See in context

"However, sweeping changes proposed by Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) in a draft constitution would strike at the heart of the charter with an assault on basic civil rights that could muzzle the media, undermine gender equality and generally open the door to an authoritarian state, activists and scholars say."

Sounds a bit like the Japanese government mentioned in "Battle Royal".

Japan already has the Russians, Chinese & Koreans to worry about. Let's just hope that Japan won't be another target for Islamic extremists.

Posted in: Abe says Tokyo deserves 2020 Games See in context

It would be nice for Tokyo to once again have the 2020 Summer Olympics. But there are some ups & downs about it. Here is a list of some of them. The games would bring great profits from tourist from around the world to help reconstruct the living areas of the 2011 tsunami. However, with the constant earthquakes & territorial disputes with China,Taiwan & Russia, Korea (like the controversial moment during men's soccer match in 2012) it could bring potentially dangers. In the end, the final decision is up to the International Olympic Committee.
