Posted in: In Fourth of July speech, Trump slams his enemies within See in context

People support Trump because he gives every people HOPE, esp. those who don't stand a chance in succeeding in our current economic and social climate - bigots, racists, uneducated... Under Trump, we are all equal. Who cares if you're an expert in your field? A medical doctor and a high school dropout have equally valid opinions with regards to medicine under Trump's presidency.

Nissan Chief Executive Makoto Uchida told shareholders Monday he is giving up half his pay

I can't LOL hard enough on this. This is the solution he has for the plunging sales, stock prices and profit. "I am punishing myself so don't attack me anymore." This is the extent of their competence.

I find this ridiculous, too, but this is not about me. I am not the one who was enslaved for hundreds of years. But I find more ridiculous is - why are white people fighting this? Because, if we allow black people to have same rights and social status as white people, the white people are the ones who stand to lose.

This is ridiculous, only if you're white.

Posted in: Half of telecommuters in Japan work longer hours than before pandemic: Rengo See in context

Most companies still count "hours in the office" = "work". Sadly, this antiquated idea trickled down the minds of the people, who proves their productivity by "just" being in the office. Multiply this by the absence of concretely defined tasks. You're in your house, without a task to do, stay at your computer thinking what to do and feeling guilty about doing nothing.

No competent business manager would allow the office to stay open under those conditions.

Exactly. The business manager in that business must be very very incompetent. Classic oyaji.

Trump is arguably the most powerful person on Earth, and yet he still act like he's a victim of an oppressive regime. He's been president for 4 years and yet he still blames Obama. So insecure.

I can't look at Nissan and not think about the kind of people running this company. My first car was a Nissan Sentra and I'll tell you, I'll never buy another Nissan because of these people.

Why do white people call themselves "expats" when they migrate to another country, and all the other races are called "immigrants"?

Posted in: Japan wants U.S. to extradite Americans who helped Ghosn flee See in context


The charge was helping a criminal escape. Ghosn is not yet a criminal. How hard is it to understand? If Ghosn escaped from prison, then those who helped him are liable. Ghosn didn't escape anything. He jumped bail and not a crime.

Let's reverse your logic. If ever they convicted the Taylors and turns out Ghosn was not guilty, what would happen? You cannot convict the Taylors because Ghosn guilt is not yet established, hence he is not a criminal and not a criminal who escaped.

If they want to get the Taylors, charge them with something else. I heard J-Prosecutors are good at that.

Posted in: Japan wants U.S. to extradite Americans who helped Ghosn flee See in context


Deputy Chief Prosecutor Takahiro Saito said Japan has issued arrest warrants for Michael and Peter Taylor for allegedly helping a criminal escape.

First, Ghosn is not yet a criminal, because his guilt is not yet proven in a court of law. If he is not a criminal, he is not an escaping criminal. There's also no helping a criminal escape. Side note: Saito again just points out the "truth" about Japan's justice system which assumes you are guilty until proven innocent.

Second, the charges should be helping a person violate bail conditions which again is not a crime in Japan.

Prosecutors say Ghosn broke the law by violating bail conditions

It appears the prosecutors don't know their own laws.

Apparently, Ghosn didn't commit a crime by jumping bail, because it is not a crime in Japan. I just learned that today.

Japan has been lauded in the international papers in the last few days for the handling of the situation.

I'm still wondering what Japan did. Japan has not done worse or better than any other country along the western side of the Pacific Ocean.

Taylors' career as mercenaries is over for good

They managed to extract a high profile person from a first world country. Their mercenary business is going to boom.

All these debacle and waste of money could have been avoided if the ojii-san's in Nissan had the balls to face Ghosn internally. Yet they involved a whole country and tax payers money, and now three more countries, on what charges? Breach of trust? Hurt feelings? 20,000 Euros? Retirement money that wasn't even given yet?

Posted in: Has Japan dodged the coronavirus bullet? See in context

Japan, as well as most of East and Southeast Asian nations, dodged the bullet because they have a different virus strain than that in Europe and America.

We don't need it. We still have the 20,000 test daily capacity from PCR. Accumulated over a month, that's 600,000 tests unused tests. Why do we need more?

Incredible news and congrats! Just shows that Japan has properly learnt from the US and Europe on how not to handle a pandemic!

What exactly did Japan do?

Posted in: Turkey charges pilots, 3 others, over Ghosn's escape from Japan See in context

Ghosn, (anti-Japanism" apart) has committed an offence, therefore he's a criminal.

He was not proven guilty, yet. There has been no trial yet. Or are you subscribing to the "prove your innocence" idea?

Doesn't matter anymore. Any findings this government will soon find out was already studied, researched, and addressed in other nations. Japan is just too slow to act on this one. They are just too afraid to be wrong.

Well, if men (just ojiisans only, really) is more decisive than women, we will not be in this mess. This crisis is the doing of indecisive ojiisans in the government and ruling party. And that's the tea.
