I know I'm not the "1%", but certainly don't want to be grouped in with the actions of the supposed 99%.... I'm relatively content with my job, salary and life. Screw socialism/communism...

Posted in: N Korean rocket to adopt 'safe' flight path, scientist says See in context

"Safe" flight path, eh? That would require it to have a relatively successful launch, and NK doesn't have a history of that yet. Of course, they have been chiming to their own citizens the "success" of their last "satellite" launch, the one that is supposedly beaming continuous loops of songs praising the late troll dictator to the world. How it's doing that from the bottom of the Pacific Ocean is the detail being ommitted, though...

Well, I guess this now will make it easier to arrest the Captain and detain him again if he ever comes inside Japanese territorial waters. Plus, he'll be persona non grata for any other entry/transit through Japan. That should work as a deterrent at least against him.

There also may be an additional factor of... airfare prices. The high prices plus the strong yen can't help.

I can't believe that Delta thinks they have a "premium brand" image in Japan, (or anywhere in the world for that matter).

I'd take an Asian carrier (SQ, JL, NH, et. al.) any day over an US carrier for a trans-Pacific flight.

This should be good news to EU and US industries which should export more defense weaponry and technology to Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea, et.al.

I'm sure that Radio Press of DPRK will state that his action is equivalent to a declaration of war and the most ultimate form of sacred war and utter destruction will rain upon him....

Posted in: 8 Osaka teachers to be punished for refusal to sing national anthem See in context

What part of "the law requires teachers to stand during the anthem" and "the Supreme Court upheld such requirements of standing during the anthem" do these moron communist teachers don't understand? If they are against the policy so much, they should quit and work for the Chosen-Gakko's or other international schools which may not have such requirements.

Otherwise, they can keep attempting their futile exercises of using the teachers unions to try to put communist and other leftist politicians to change the current laws. But good luck with that since the majority of Japanese citizens still support the standing during Kimigayo.

the citizens can elect the policy makers. If the policy makers make rules allowing teachers to remain sitting, so be it. But for now, the majority of the citizens and politicians have made policy requiring the standing for the anthem.

If an employee fails to follow corporate policies, then that corporation has the right to terminate that employee. Otherwise, if the employee thinks that the corporate policy is wrong, then try convincing the corporate board or shareholders to change said corporate policy. Otherwise, resign. BTW, the corporate board (Osaka Pref.) and shareholders (citizens of Osaka Pref and Japan) are generally supportive of the corporate policy requiring its employees (teachers) to stand during the anthem.

Just remember, farting in the general direction of Pyongyang is also equivalent of delaration of war.

Fair enough. If the government is paying your bills and the government (law) requires to stand at attention but you don't, then insubordination deserves punishment or dismissal.

If you don't like the rule of law (or corporate rules for that matter), get another job somewhere else.

Also good to see that, instead of going back to Illinois (cesspool of union thuggary and corruption) to Georgia. Hopefully, they can keep the unions out.

Any increase in the opportunity to fly my transpacific routes on non-US carriers is welcome news. Flew the 787 on domestic routes a couple times already and it would be great to be able to use it, even if it means transitting through SJC, SEA or BOS (JAL).

Posted in: Activists hurl stink bombs at Japanese whaling ship See in context

The more illegal and stupid actions taken by SS leads to more Japanese public being more neutral (rather than questioning it) or even in support for whaling...

Yahoo Japan comment boards started lighting up stating that SS ships should be sunk right after the media started reporting about SS interference.

Posted in: Do you consider the anti-whaling group Sea Shepherd to be eco-terrorists? See in context

Either way, to answer the question of

If SSCS are "eco-terrorists", then why haven't they been charged and arrested with any crimes?,

The fact is that they have been arrested (yes), charged (yes) and sentenced (yes) with crimes.

Thus endeth that story....

I never singled out Paul Watson. Thus, "Sea Shepard members"...

I believe Paul Watson has an outstanding arrest warrant in Japan. Also, he's been sentenced in Norway for destruction of property.

I also believe that members of the Sea Shepard (other than Paul Watson) have been arrested and charged in Norway, Canada and Japan. If I also recall, it was a guilty ruling against Sea Shepard that resulted in the Canadian government forfeiture of the Farley Mowat?

If SSCS are "eco-terrorists", then why haven't they been charged and arrested with any crimes?

I thought that Sea Shepard members have been arrested, charged or considered persona non grata in Canada, Japan (remember Pete Bethune?), Norway, Iceland, Faroe Islands and other countries...
