We always here about the resilient consumer in the US

If you compare the 2 countries the American consumer is hands down 1000 percent more resilient. Have you been there lately? No risk no reward, America with all her challenges is far better off than anything I have experienced in Japan lately.

Posted in: Palestinians scramble for safety as Israel pounds sealed-off Gaza Strip to punish Hamas See in context

Israeli citizens understand better than any others that sacrifices are necessary sometimes for the overall survival of the nation. I believe that most of the hostages believe they are going to die in this conflict. It will be hard to watch, but the Israeli government will move to punish and defeat the terrorists no matter the costs.

Posted in: Orient ties up with banks on service to help purchases of empty houses See in context

Big mistake. Orico is the most xenophobic credit company in Japan. This is only a scheme to keep foreigners out of the buyers market. Japanese don’t like used anything. Foreigners see value in these properties and are buying them up scaring the hell out of the Japanese government.

Orico will probably buy them up, inflate the prices then give Japanese people loans on these sub par properties.

Posted in: Musk wants to cut 10% of Tesla jobs; tells employees to return to workplace or quit See in context

From the beginning of the pandemic he has been constantly trying to downplay the risks to the health and wellbeing of his employees, ignoring their desire to telework even if that would be very beneficial to them is just part of the same thing.

"The question is what, on balance, serves the greater good," Musk continued, adding that the lockdowns did not accomplish that and the pandemic is a "no-win situation."

He was also tested numerous times, and every test had a different result. He made it through with his opinions and you seem to have made it through with yours.

This is the most passive the U.S. has ever been in my lifetime. Do you honestly think Putin is building Hypersonic missiles to conquer Ukraine? Taiwan is not a part of NATO, will NATO defend Taiwan if China tries to take it? What about South Korea? Wake up, there is something much bigger going on here.
