Posted in: Abe says he won't force sales tax hike if economic conditions worsen See in context

Yes, no, maybe, ........

Darned, make up your mind if you got any!

And as always: he pledged, he confirmed, he is committed and so on.

I want to see deeds, not just words.

Where are those arrows he promised long ago? Nothing but hot air!

Posted in: Trump political ad linking Democrats and immigrants to violent crime assailed as 'sickening,' racially divisive See in context

What a jerk! What a smear campaign.

Using one criminal illegal immigrant to condemn everyone else.

Doesn't he (and the ones following him) have any better ideas?

He is dividing not uniting.

How much worse will it get, how much lower (if possible) will he go?

Sure they dislike his.

Once the rice goes from Yen 1.800 for 5 kg to maybe Yen 1.200 for the same quantity .....

But of course the Japanese government will subsidize them once again.

Remember, those farmers and older people always go for Abe and his party.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic minister promises transparency on spending See in context

Just " 82.6 billion yen" that couldn't be linked to the (Olympic) games?

So, what were they linked to? Personal expenditures for the organizers and those connected to them?

How many pockets have been filled with tax money.

But hey, it's just a mere 82.6 BILLION Yen, chum-change, peanuts ... at least for some.

Imagine what could have been done with all that money for those still living in pre-fab housing units.

Imagine what could have been done with all that money for those who really need support.

Posted in: School teachers in Japan work more than 11 hours per day: survey See in context

Fully agree with "Chip Star" .... since I see it every day.

Ok, they have to teach club activities, and other stuff but lots of time is being wasted.

Talking about teacher's conferences (lots of "blabla" without any real results), all kind of paperwork that's not necessary, and so on. Efficiency is a word unknown quite often.

So sad!

And he dares to say "...... rise above hatred..."?

With his speeches and actions he sets the worst example for others to follow.

3 months after she "went missing"?

Sounds somewhat late to me and I got my serious doubts that she is still alive (even though I hope for it!).

Posted in: Abe urges parties to present constitutional amendment plans as Diet session opens See in context

Abe pointed out, Abe vowed, Abe pledged, Abe is determined, Abe is certain, Abe promised, Abe urges, and best of all Abe is seeking ........

Well, didn't we hear these words in reference to other stuff before already? Time will show what he will accomplish. At least he got a 48-day extraordinary diet session ahead of him. Lots of time (being wasted?).

Posted in: Trump struggles for a plan should the migrant caravan arrive See in context

Struggling? Other (but maybe FAKE) news indicated he had a plan.

State of emergency, military as well as national guard ready to go!

At least that's what it said and it's what sounds like the BigDonald.

Then again, maybe it's just words, nothing but words.

Posted in: May tries to calm Brexit rebels; says deal almost done See in context


black joke or sarcasm, right?

Once (and i) they are out of the EU they will miss so much.

"They" should listen to the "normal" population. And the majority does not want a Brexit!

Seems like the world is becoming a more and more dangerous place again.

When will they finally learn that food should come first (and second and third) before talking about increasing their arms arsenal? Concerning Bolton, well he is just following the instructions of his leader, same talk, same ol', same ol'.

Reward points? I hear reward points!

As long as you pay with a credit card or other cashless methods.

So, what am I gonna do with those reward points?

Exchange them for unwanted, useless items from the credit card company?

Now, that's definitely keep some money in my wallet (NOT!!).

And reduced tax if you buy a house or a car?

I strongly assume that (at least most of the) people who can afford that have enough money already.

Posted in: Japan inflation ticks up as oil rises but BOJ target remains elusive See in context

To be quite honest: I (personally) don't care whether it's in- or deflation.

As long as I have more money in my wallet. Everything else is just talk.

The economy (not only in Japan!!) is down and it will not get better in the months and years to come.

Of course "ganbarejapan" has yet another oh so great idea.

We use it, we produce it ... but please, don't make it our problem.

Japan should and have to take care of that problem.

Don't put the burden on other countries just because it is so convenient!

So, that's all it takes?

A probably harmless talk with someone's girlfriend and as a result a fractured skull?

How many years in juvenile detention is he going to get?

" I don't like the concept of stopping an investment of $110 billion into the United States." says Trump

"They buy my condominiums, mansions and apartments ...... don't want to stop that!", well at least in some way he said it.

This guy is taking very good care ........ of himself and those around him. He doesn't care what happens to more or less ordinary people.

Posted in: Trump reluctant to abandon Riyadh over missing journalist, wants evidence See in context

Well, just look at what deDonald said not so long ago:

"Saudis buy apartments from me," Trump said during a campaign rally last year,according to The Hill. 

"They spend $40 million, $50 million. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much.”

This is still valid today, I strongly assume. Business first ...., oops, I wanted to say HIS business first!

Posted in: Abe sends ritual offering to Yasukuni Shrine See in context

Down-voting done, thanks.

Just think about it (and I'm repeating myself, I know):

if NAZI folks like high ranking SS or SD members (not mentioning the "eliet") were enshrined somewhere in Germany and Merkel sent her "tribute" there, as well as other government members went there, would that also be considered appropriate? Don't think so

Posted in: Abe sends ritual offering to Yasukuni Shrine See in context

Definitely, Emperors Hirohito and Akihito are much smarter than Abe, and more sensitive.

He does it again, and again, and again. He shouldn't be surprised if other world leaders dislike him for that!

Liar, liar pants on fire!

But he had enough authority and power to be a vice president.

Well, de Trumpless has spoken, so must be it.

I mean, he is always right, isn't he ... at least according to him.

He is the best, the greatest, so outstanding ........ in bullying others.

Go back to your show biz, maybe, but only maybe you are a better performer there.

Posted in: Abe says sales tax to go ahead as planned in Oct 2019 See in context

"......  an expected rise in salaries .....".

Pay attention to the word "EXPECTED"!

"They" always expected and nothing happened, well, at least not to my knowledge and what my paycheck tells me. In addition I also got my doubts that all that money will be spend for what "they" say. It definitely will also support more parades (like the one Abe had) and a military build-up. Stop that wasteful spending once and for all! Enough is enough!

Posted in: Trump says climate change not a hoax, but not sure of its source See in context

First deny it, then make it a possibility, and finally agree.

But still he doesn't know why climate change is happening.

Said this before and say it again: maybe he should attend some additional elementary school lessons?

He definitely was absent most of the time when he was supposed to be there!
