Posted in: Romney announces White House exploratory committee See in context

The current crop of potential Republican candidates leaves a lot to be desired. The GOP had better come up with some better choices or January 2013 might find a Republican-controlled Congress in conflict with the Democrat Obama once again in the White House, which would result in even less getting done.

Norika Fujiwara is going to hit 40 soon, I've already done so.

It makes me wonder where the time went, and along with it all the good times in Japan.

Maehara studied former PM Mori's English training manual:

Maehara: Who are you?

Hillary: I'm Bill's wife.

Maehara: Me too.

Posted in: Dark clouds for Democrats as Obama embarks on last push See in context

Obama can sit back in a few days, watch his majority in the House and possibly the Senate disappear, and realize that he won't be able to accomplish much more of his far-left agenda the second half of what should be a one-term presidency.

The U.S. needs to dispense with the political correctness crap and discuss racial issues openly and freely.

"They’re obsessed with fortune-telling."

This was a sore spot with me and an old girlfriend. I got tired of hearing about it.

Posted in: All signs point to Republican victories: polls See in context

I thought George W. Bush and his "War Presidency" made him the worst Chief Executive since Jimmy Carter. Now I've decided to replace Bush with Obama and his failed state capitalism.

Hooters would probably do better in Japan if they adopted some sort of maid costume down the road.

"Wonder how long those foreign chix will stay at Hooters when they get offered way higher wages at the hostess clubs?"

That will be a discussion about a year from now.

U.S. response:

Calling all drones, calling all drones....

The U.S. doesn't need boots on the ground or carbon-based bipeds in planes in the sky to expand the war into Pakistan.

Posted in: Why are girl bands and glamour groups like AKB48, SKE48, Morning Musume and Miniskirt Police so popular in Japan? See in context

"Clever marketing."

True

"Because of salarymen with Lolita complex..."

There is some truth here too.

In the case of AKB48, I would say that former member Rina Nakanishi's move to the AV world has drawn them a ton of attention and new fans who are wondering which young girl will be the next to move to porn.

For some fans, though, I would say that these groups give them an escape from the drudgery of their daily lives. It's fun.

"Claims against attorneys on the rise"

"the sharp increase in the number of practicing attorneys, which rose from 16,305 in 1998 to 26,930 in 2009."

No surprise here. Japan wanted to drastically increase the number of practicing attorneys. Well, obviously there would be pros and cons to all this.

Posted in: Canada beats U.S. 3-2 in overtime to claim ice hockey gold See in context

Canada deserves much praise for winning 14 gold medals.

The U.S. deserves a big pat on the back with its 37 overall medals.

Congratulations to both countries on a great hockey game to finish off a successful Winter Olympics.

He might appeal for a while to the Japanese-American community in the U.S., but I wouldn't bank on long-term success in the U.S. if I were him.

Canada should be proud to win the gold medal total.

The U.S. should be equally proud to win the overall medal count while setting a record for most medals won at a Winter Olympics.

Congratulations to both countries!

He should be.

"Remember 2010" will be plenty of motivation for Russia over the next 4 years.

Posted in: Death toll in Chile earthquake tops 300 See in context

300 dead vs. 100,000+ in Haiti. Goes to show what decent building codes can do for you.

Differences in construction methods and materials and enforcement of the laws is certainly part of it.

Chile's death toll will worsen. Haiti's is higher than you say.

Big differences in population density between the main cities affected in both countries.

Also, quite a difference between the two concerning the depth of the quakes and how the intensity was felt at the surface.

The death toll is now over 700 and climbing.

Posted in: Japan won 5 medals at the Vancouver Winter Olympics. How would you assess the results? See in context

Fair to middlin'

5 medals-no golds-after one gold in 2006 and only two medals in 2002.

Then again, any reasonably competitive country should benefit from the ever-increasing # of medal events in successive Games and win more medals overall.

Japan has got a lot of work to do to be better at the 2014 Winter Olympics.
