Give up your cash, give up your last vestige of freedom.

when you go 100% cashless they’ve got you and will start lopping zeroes off your account balance at will while simultaneoulsly raising prices on everything around you.

It is a governments duty to print and provide cash for its citizenry. If they want to save the expenses of printing they should cut some real waste in their bureacracy, not my cash!

But you can’t brew sake or beer on your own IN JAPAN. It is illegal and reserved for the conglomerates of Kirin, Sapporo, Asahi, and Suntory only. Which charge 2 USD PER CAN of Budweiser quality beer.

Ah yes, the legendary 5th arrow of Abenomics, right into the heart of middle class! Thanks blueblood Shinzo, we havenkt forgotten about your land scandal and the myriad of other scandals. How about we axe the useless head of the Olympic commitee first and save 30% yen per year. I 'd like to see Renho get back into her waste slashing mode again and start at the top with useless bureaucrats who do nothing but leech off of our hard work, only because of their connections.

Posted in: Plastic piling up in Japan after China waste import ban See in context

BBC reports that Malaysia is now accepting a lot of it. Before , China put it in landfills near the coast. Then when a typhoon came it magically made more room in the landfill for plastic. Where did it go? Out to sea! Search it on YouTube. It’s still flowing out to sea every day! Japan needs to get over the cultural plastic packaging nonsense.

Yes, open air! Incinerator or not. Radiation is not like plastic which if burned over 1000c will not emit dioxin. Radiation is radiation, it will travel near and far.

By telling the towns it is their responsibility to handle the waste is just beyond incompetance it it immoral. It it not the municipalities waste, it is Tepco’s. Burn it in Tokyo!

Our school pool is used for about 3 weeks in summer, even though it is blistering hot from May through September. Also parents must take turns supervising these swimming classes. Maybe if they extended the swimming season and charged locals they could make some cash?
