Posted in: Japan weighs incentivizing childbirth by fully covering expenses See in context

Half-bake solution, typical of incompetent politicians, "let the people see I'm working".

Work/life balance doesn't mean anything if families are struggling, why should I go home when I can work more and increase my company's success and my future salary ?

First step solution is to grant every newborn one million yen in investment account until they're 18 years old. That's at least 18 million yen. You can only take it out only for higher education (~6 million), marriage (~2 million), and/or buying a house (~10 million down payment). This alone will wipe any worries about "my children won't have a good future".

Who pays for it ? The government has been granting billions to Asian countries, that won't be a problem.

Posted in: Japan cannot make CO2 disappear just by exporting it. Plans for overseas storage must involve taking permanent responsibility. See in context

Japan and the rest of the "pretending-to-do-good" western countries. The difference is that Japan doesn't care to be a "do-gooder" in climate change, only care about how it's perceived by "pretending-to-do-good" western countries.

Posted in: Japanese foreign minister retracts controversial childbirth remark See in context

As usual, JT just "translate" directly from Japanese media who loves to misquote to fit their propaganda.

Her full sentence is "If we women were not the ones that gave birth to this person (Shizuoka's governor candidate, appealing that he will make Shizuoka a better place for everyone), what will be the point of a woman ? If we think about how Shizuoka will become in the future, we can't relax".

She's emphasizing that women are the source of future generations, you can't have people that will be a useful member of society without having children first, regardless of your believes.

The way Japanese grammar is structured, it's easy to misquote in this sentence. No wonder people no longer believe in the mass media.

Posted in: Saudi crown prince seeks soft power in game hub Japan See in context

We criticize Japan for its toxic overworked culture, but they don't sit on top of land with an autogenerate-money feature, can't just sit around in the sun getting free lunches. Without a disciplined work culture, Japan would be nothing.

In the end money trumps everything. Don't have the will, nor talents, nor patience, nor skills to build it ? Buy it!

Posted in: Japan protests after China, Russia call released Fukushima water 'contaminated' See in context

Work hard to clean the water before releasing it, then called a "polluter" by the biggest polluters in the solar system.

Might as well don't spend any money and just release it.

This is the reality for anyone who wants to live in a clean Earth. XiXiPootain make sure we can't have nice things.

Everything is temporary, learn to enjoy while it lasts then let go, we'll all be happier.

But then there's money to be made ... it's why as society, we will never be happy.

Posted in: There is a 69-day wait from the end of Golden Week to the July 16 national holiday. June has no holiday, but if one were to be adopted, what do you think it should be called? See in context

6月9日 would be the perfect holiday in this declining-child-birth society.

Posted in: Ex-trade ministry bureaucrat gets 10 years for raping drugged women See in context

6 women, 120 months sentence. That means, scumbag trade 20 months of his worthless time for 5 seconds of whatever this scumbag is chasing. Doesn't sound like a person who should work in a TRADE ministry of a country, no wonder we've stagnated for 30 years.

Posted in: ‘Lord of the Rings: The Hunt for Gollum’ in development with Andy Serkis to direct and star See in context

Yeah NO. He "took credit" for "his incredible performance" all for himself, when in fact Golumn's facial expression and animations were hand-animated by special effect artists. When called out, he insulted whole industry of effect artists.

He wanted credits by belittling other people's hard work. That's a big nope for my conscience.

Posted in: 'Mount Fuji convenience store' issues apology for bad tourist manners, adds multilingual signs See in context

The dentist wouldn't complain if they're getting some of those tourists money. If I were the dentist, I'd put a sign of a human being slashed with a Katana and a giant sign "no trespassing!". I'd then complain to the local community association and push Lawson to do something about the loitering and trashing.

Posted in: Biden blames China, Japan and India's economic woes on 'xenophobia' See in context

Neo-liberal global-capitalists love immigrants, how else are they going to keep wages low and profit high ? And have scapegoats for whenever things go wrong. Blame the immigrants for X. Blame the bigots for Y.

Posted in: I have a message for all the experts back in Washington: You don’t know the Japan of today. Their predictions of what the future of Japan would be were myths. Japan has busted every one of those myths. See in context

Too bad, the way things go today, Japan is going the neo-liberal cultural-enrichment free-market globalism.

It's easy to predict what Japan would be, just look all the culturally-enriched western countries today, you can see what Japan will be in the next 10 years.

Posted in: To fend off tourists, town starts building big screen blocking view of Mount Fuji See in context

So, they're blocking the far-side of the road hoping people won't cross the road because there's no "safe" are to stand on. Clearly, the city is underestimating the persistence of these Instagram sheep being herded around by famous people's Instagram.

Posted in: What do you think are the good and bad points of the health insurance system in Japan? See in context

It's good overall, one of the longest living people in the world.

The bad ? Some people abuse it sure, e.g. calling ambulance when you don't have to. Just with anything else, we shouldn't punish the majority for the misbehavior of minorities.

The market has successfully "probe" what the BOJ has in mind. An automatic computer program, triggered when yen reaches 160, to sell dollar reserves.

Posted in: Bank of Japan keeps interest rates unchanged despite pressure over weak yen See in context

I've said a few times, the BOJ won't do anything.

Companies have raised salaries, citing "stability of increasing" profit. "Increasing" because of what ? Definitely not from increasing productivity, this is Japan, LOL. Kishida will weaken the yen indefinitely to create the illusion of "increasing" profit year-on-year. No way to drop the yen back.

My grandmother was a Chinese refugee from the CCP, she used to say the CCP were a "diu lien" (shameless people), calling others thieves when they're the actual thieves. I guess even after CCP changed to XiXiPee, they haven't changed.

Tortured, labor/reeducation camp, then back to Japan as spy, or stay in China to educate the rest of the people about how evil Japan is.

Yet, there are still people here defending China.

Posted in: Seoul, Tokyo vow 'appropriate action' on weak yen and won See in context

Nothing is more empty than these "vows".

If BOJ were serious, when it hit 145, it would've moved, but of course it won't, because it targets ~180 and it will never tell the market that.
