Posted in: Toyota admits to improper vehicle testing as quality scandal widens See in context

four models no longer in production (Crown, Isis, Sienta, Lexus RX).

The Lexus RX is sold by the thousands in the US. Very popular, the dealers have full stocks of the 2024 models. They have definitely not been discontinued .

The left would like to see Toyota shut down and maybe nationalized it seems. That wouldn't affect too many people would it?

Just how much of other people's money should they give away?

No clue is right.

that's so typical of authoritarians and their regimes, bullying while at the same time trying to get their followers to think the authoritarians are being 'victimized', moaning 'it's unfair', and having their media parrot their long list of laments, and at the same time getting their supporters to believe any media outlet that doesn't fully support authoritarianism is wrong and biased.

Sounds exactly like the democrat party.

Oh give it up. It's just a shrine. No one ever hear of the tomb of the unknown soldier? Japan was punished enough and it's time those who weren't even born yet quit whining about it. It's OVER.

Posted in: SDF to soften hairstyle rules as recruit shortage worsens See in context

Beards are not the reason no one wants to be a cop in NY. Democrats are. You can't let the criminals walk out the same day they are arrested and expect the arresting officer to be pleased. You can't walk around chanting defund the police and expect them to sign up. You can't allow an open border and allow every criminal from 15 countries in without papers and expect the cops to ignore the extra crime. No law gets you no cops. Simple as that. Only when a celebrity or a democrat congressman is attacked will anything be done about lawlessness.

Just who is supposed to pay for this "treatment"? That kind of unicorn ranching is the real reason for rampant drug use rather than being able to obtain employment that would stave off the despair that causes drug use in the first place.

It is not the State's place to regulate the poverty that enables the drug use in the first place. Without democrat programs, there would be no trickle of public funds to the drug dealers.

I just wish the ordinary Chinese people would rise up and call 'Time' on this toxic repressive regime.

They did a couple times. The first created Taiwan, and they died the second time. Communists are murderous bullies and can only be stopped the way Mao proclaimed, at the barrel of the gun.

The following come from this article :


This is a leftist propaganda piece from NYC. They fear monger as a matter of course.

People who live in Manhattan haven't the slightest idea how nuclear plants function, they just know they are afraid all the time because that is the way democrats like them to be. Makes them easier to control.

Additionally, it literally stuns me that canadians get away with the goodie-two-shoes image around the world when in fact I have personally witnessed on too many occasions where canadians have either been acting socially inappropriate to the point of making others feel uncomfortable or physically fighting, or vandalizing. It really is a shame they get away with the good boy image. An image which doesn't fit the real character.

Fact. They have gotten ruder as the years have gone by. I don't even visit anymore.

I guess if one is unaware that China is a one party communist state where the government is complicit in EVERYTHING, one might wonder what the significance of China trying to drug people in democratic nations.

I am aware and I think it is imperative to be suspicious of Chinese operatives in our midst.

Jeff said: Time to rescind the corporate tax cut of a few years ago.

Corportions don't pay taxes. Their customers pay them. This is a hidden tax on consumers and consumers should educate themselves on simple concepts like profit and loss. If a corporation makes no profit, they pay no taxes. They simply raise their prices until they do. Who pays? You do! That is the reason goods are so expensive in Nihon. The consumer pays twice.

Yellen is a partisan hack. Bringing up Biden's refusal to negotiate a debt ceiling increase with the majority in a foriegn country is bush league politics at it's worst. This was a waste of time. The flight of capitol from banks is a result of the democrat party's total ignorance of capitalism.

A complete circus of clowns without a single funny act.

Posted in: Camera of Japanese journalist slain in Myanmar returned after nearly 16 years See in context

Burma has been taken over by the CCP so they could build a fossil fuel pipeline from Kunming to the Indian Ocean, and thereby avoid the Malacca strait using capitalist oil carriers. Now Arabian oil can transit a short voyage from the Strait of Hormuz to a deserted terminal in Kyakupku. Cheaper and safer for the CCP dictators.

They prefer a weakened government, the bribes cost less.

No one here has driven truck. The industry is competitive and government decrees will not change that. This will simply cause drivers to find another profession. Because the customer will not pay.

Posted in: Japan given infamous 'fossil' award at climate change conference See in context

Overall fossil fuel financing remains dominated by four U.S. banks — JPMorgan Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America — who together account for one-quarter of all fossil fuel financing identified over the last six years.

60 largest banks in the world have invested $3.8 trillion in fossil fuels since the Paris Agreement.

There is a difference between financing and investing. I suggest an economics 101 course. By far the financing comes from the commodities markets, which ARE speculators in oil by the millions of barrels in futures contracts. Without oil you have no clothes, no plastics nor cars and no food you don't grow yourself. Just where do you think fertilizer comes from.

Luddites just don't have any idea how many would die if heir unicorn dream of "no fossil fuels" was to fly over the rainbow. If hippies really worried about CO2 they would stop heating with diesel and get some nuclear generation plants built today. That is currently the ONLY proven clean technology extant today. The solar and wind promoters have zero science education.

Looking up this rifdiculous "Climate Action Network it is clear that the members are Africans that are looking for the free money that the hippy movement promised them to pretend they were "green".

People that squat over a wood fire have no business pointing fingers, especially considering that Japan is extremely careful with fuel usage. As well they have to be, because unlike Kenya and the Congo they don't have huge oil deposits.
