China also said 2050, if we want to lead, make it 2040! We're better equipped than China, and yet we're only playing cat & mouse with them!

Posted in: A worried Asia wonders: What will Joe Biden do? See in context

China loves Biden, it will be back to business as Japan won't see anything solved, senkakus, kidnapping, South China Sea. I don't like Trump for all things except for his China stance. Too bad our outdated political system doesn't allow us to elect a person to be in charged on certain issues.

Biden lead by 4-million votes, and here we are still wondering who will win. Truly an American Exceptionalism!!

Good, it's time we take matters into our own hands. Especially if that buzzing-non-stop orange bee wins again.

America, richest country, 3th most populous, and your best idea for leaders are a spoilled old fool and a senile old fool.

Posted in: South Korean sex slave campaigner charged with embezzlement See in context

LOL, basically what SK and it's government been doing for years, we pay, they steal it for themselves, when run out, rile-up the people "the Japanese must pay!". Very predictable, as predictable as them asking more money sometimes later in the future.

Posted in: Again, no female contenders in Japan's leadership race See in context

I don't support any of these geezers, none has the balls to condemn China, especially Ishiba, "we must be the mediator of US - China relationship", like WHAT ? LOL!! Though I like it when the questioneers ask about "female problem", then he replied "Why aren't there female questioneers ? What did you do ?".

None of these three are any good.

Posted in: Backroom deals, old-school politics help rise of Suga See in context

It's funny how the candidates will present their ideas and agendas, when the factions within the LDP have declared support of Suga. Like what's the point ?

He's just Abe's minion ? Abe loves the power but not the stress, I guess.

Lol, like we have "relationship" with the orange baby ? Don't make me laugh.

Posted in: Who is next after Abe? Potential successors See in context

I'd vote Kano if we can actually vote the individual. No Aso please, dude needs to go away.

Posted in: Stock markets are booming in many countries despite millions of people having lost their jobs and the coronavirus pushing economies deeper into recession. Why is there such a disconnect between stock markets and the real economy? See in context

The last crashed made a lot of stories about ordinary people becoming rich, retiring early because they "hold" and continued buying when the market was low. Now, more individuals are doing exactly that, with the help of simple apps like Robinhood and the Fed's giant pump.

Posted in: Why is anti-Japanese sentiment remaining from the World War II era almost non-existent in countries like Taiwan, the Philippines and Indonesia, unlike in China and South Korea? See in context

I'm a Chinese decent who were born and grew up in Indonesia. Can't say much about the "real" China except from things I learned from my parents and grandparents, we're a revenge-loving bunch, fillial pity and what not, ancestors' wrong doings must be paid by children, grand-children, and so on. Grand-parents especially made sure we don't forget Japanese wrong doings.

As for Indonesia, we just hate the Chinese more than the Japanese. Chinese has been given special preferential treatment by the Dutch way before WW2. Chinese ethnics were and are in general wealthier than natives, and since they're more or less present in people's daily lives, their wealth has been a source of envy and division (Maybe similar to Jews in Germany before WW2 ?).

Posted in: Hotels put safety first in bid to lure back domestic travelers See in context

I heard rumors companies are threatening to "let go" of their employee if they go travel during obon and got the virus. I understand the necessary of containing the epidemic, but Japanese companies are just toxic.

Posted in: Japan confirms 1,512 new coronavirus infections See in context

I find it funny that after 2 weeks of daily record cases, people still think "nah, it's not gonna happen to me, plus the government doesn't declare emergency, let's keep going out to places where infection risks are high".

Posted in: The postponed Tokyo Olympics are scheduled to start one year from this week. Do you think they will be held or canceled? See in context

The US infection rate shows no sign of slowing down and the people show no sign of care. If the Olympic continues, would Japan discriminate against the US ? The politics involved will be a nightmare, might as well cancel it.

Posted in: Do you think not buying a Nissan car, even if you liked the design and other features, because of what happened to former Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn, is a rational decision? See in context

Nissan Leaf is the best affordable fully-electric car in Japan IMHO. When it came out, you pay low subscription fee so you can have all-you-can-charge sessions in many charging stations. Then they cancel that plan.

Yeah, I don't deal with companies that scream "Don't trust our services, because we'll cancel it at our whim".

Posted in: Why are fruit and vegetables in Japan so expensive? See in context

Because the fruits are not grown and picked by exploited third-world country children.

Posted in: Have you given up on 2020 because of the coronavirus and are now just looking ahead to 2021? See in context

2020 is decent for me, finally managed to get a house after a decade of savings, and first-ever car purchase, work is going well too.

But, what makes people think that 2021 is gonna be better ? Have you been paying attention to the news ? Ebola spike, China arming themselves, record unemployment, we won't feel the effects at least until next year.

In addition arctic ice at record low, record rainfall and flooding, these weather phenomenons are not isolated to 2020, it's a trend that gets worse every year.

No use scrambling jets, PULL businesses away from China! Too bad most corporations prefer to go after the Chinese market carrot than their own nation's interests.
