For corporate tax purposes, it is covered as an 'expense' under the 'advertising, PR, Marketing ' clause. So, the cost of business expenses is borne by the whole country.

Gene Hennigh: they catch it so they can sell it to Japan, idiot. everything about this story is BS, japans attitude to whaling is BS, Japans dinosaurs are fools, 'flipping the bird' to the rest of the world, well millions of enlightened, civilised, people all over the world return it and I personally hope your fancy ship sinks to the bottom of the ocean as quicklt as the Titanic did.

Posted in: Japanese authorities urge caution after wild bears attack several people in the northeast See in context

It's not necessary to hunt down and kill a bears to placate a largely ignorant and overly cautious - (due to an over-bear..ing.. 

 government ) - populace.


     'Bear' spray does what it says on the tin and is very effective. The two cops - although I sympathise with their predicament - were obviously operating beyond their capabilities. 

     And what qualifies me to make this comment I hear you ask; I'm an ex- Para and Park Ranger and have had multiple encounters with bears in the Japanese mountains, each time we've peacefully gone our separate ways. Act like 'prey' or be perceived as a threat.. then 'Darwinism' will decide the outcome.

Posted in: Around 68,000 elderly die alone in Japan annually: police See in context

At the Hubert Humphrey Building dedication, Nov. 1, 1977, in Washington, D.C., former vice president Humphrey spoke about the treatment of the weakest members of society as a reflection of a government:

“The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.”

Posted in: Five cross-country skiers found dead in Switzerland: reports See in context

Not 'cross-country' skiing; It is 'Ski-Mountaineering' a far more serious activity as evidenced by this report.

"I think life in prison would be appropriate for such a young man to give time to reflect and find redemption."

Hang the demented psychopath and all his ilk worldwide - 'High' no mercy for this kind of human trash.

Posted in: Kishida says Japan will play leading diplomatic role in 'tense' 2024 See in context

The hipocrasy of the Japanese (LDP) lol! politicians knows no bounds (along with the governments of other G8 countries.) Two diametrically opposed statements, in my book; the first means 'peaceful', the second double-speak for 'violence'. Japan has moved from relative pacifism to full blown offensive militarism, under the noses of an apathetic electorate.

( said he will exert leadership "unique to Japan" through summit diplomacy to "overcome challenges," citing issues such as Russia's war on Ukraine and the Israel-Hamas conflict. )

( "We will decisively protect the people's safety and Japan's territory, water and airspace in the complicated security environment in East Asia," said Kishida )

The number one concern of the G8 (bourgeoisie ) is to protect their wealth and sources of such wealth, at any cost. Politeriat democracy, human rights be damned.

Analogy: The officers in charge of this 'ship' we are all travelling on are blinded by their greed and self worth and we're on on collison course with an iceberg that will sink us.

Posted in: Fuel pumps run dry in UK as govt blames panic buying See in context

Not Brexit; not - 'SARS Ver 2' (lets a least call a spade a spade or else what's the point of having a free speech platform?). The bottom line; the greedy, fat cat shareholders and non exec' directors/advisors of companies (many of whom are serving politicians) who have vested interests in keeping overheads down and their remuneration - comparative to the shop-floor worker - at obscene levels. Well, they must think, if F1 drivers and sport -stars are having millions thrown their way, surely we the 'privileged' few, the puppet masters deserve the same. There are over 200,000 licensed HGV drivers in the UK who could be working but have quit or taken early retirement, 50,000 of those have left the industry this year exhausted physically and mentally by the working conditions and pay. I should know as I am one of them. Poaching drivers from other countries is a slap in the face on top of everything else.
