Posted in: Japanese couples increasingly begin to arrange prenuptial agreements See in context

You'd think that life, with all our amazing new gadgets, would become more simple, but no, it is becoming more and more complicated. "Ignorance is Bliss". Would life on an Island without electricity, books, or modern technology at all be better..... to live in a small tribe, co-existing together. Would that be bad. But many see those without modern technology and ideas as "primitive". I believe "retro-communities" will flourish going forward. Living in this insulated world with keyboards and quick delivery.... isn't real living. I think I'll go out for a long walk now.

Posted in: Ghosn hires new defense team in change of strategy See in context

So the question is..... will Hironaka give it his all because if Ghosn is found innocent it will do two things. One is that it will show that Japan's Legal system works. A Guilty verdict would still cast doubt upon the system. Two, an Innocent verdict could be the downfall of Nissan Motors. If he's found innocent there would have to be massive repercussions for Nissan. Why.... because it would prove that all the damning evidence Nissan has submitted was either irrelevant, made up, or should have been their responsibility to report in the first place. Or that they should not have allowed such compensation in the first place. Or.... Ghosn could be guilty as sin and Justice properly served if found guilty.

Protest in front of the Morinaga HQ Bldg....... Blame this on some idiot in Japan because it exist only here that I know of. Valentine's Day is about a Man doing something special for a Woman. And that many should be a boyfriend or husband only. The idea that every man and women should get something is just too much.

Posted in: S Korean assembly speaker says apology needed from Japanese emperor See in context

This is why I have ZERO respect for Koreans.... apologies have been made and reparations paid, but they still continually use this issue for their own political gain. The Japanese do have their faults, no doubt, but they have too much pride to play the victim more than one time. OK, yes, you do hear from A-Bomb survivors and relatives, but it is not specifically directed at any one country. It is mainly a call to reduce or scrap all Nuclear weapons.

Posted in: Man stabbed in convenience store after road rage incident See in context

There are a lot of reasons to get angry when driving.... people that hog the passing lane, people that tailgate, slow drivers, and more. As I get older I do my best to not be a nuisance to others on the road... but even then you can't please everyone all the time. Some people are just angry and you happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Try to quickly recognize that the other person is just straight out in a bad mood and try to distance yourself from him. I say him.... because it probably will be a guy.

If you were to let them be actual children that would throw the whole culture out of whack. No more would we have docile obedient children. These kids need to properly learn the rule book or society overall will collapse.

Posted in: Nissan to freeze payments of unstated remuneration to Ghosn See in context

All the information is coming from the very people that fingered Ghosn in the first place. Ghosn is guilty of telling Saikawa the he's going to get rid of him before he actually did. That was his biggest mistake. Never mess with the "harmony" of a Japanese company in Japan.

Why all of a sudden... after decades of various agreements with Russia, is the U.S. now pulling out? I think Trump is trying to show the press and his followers that he is hard on Russia and that he did not collude with them to win the election. This is a Political move designed to fool the people. The man has no shame.

Posted in: Ghosn tells Nikkei arrest due to plot, treason within Nissan See in context

@Akie.... yes, in Japan one has to follow Japanese law.... but that does not mean it is right or that you're not getting screwed. Based on many different comments I've read by foreigners that have been screwed in Japan, Japanese law is left up to interpretation and is often based on if you're apologetic even though you might not be wrong. For some reason the law in Japan is on a power trip.... you better suck up to them because if you don't you will spend a long time in detention.... oh yeah... and you'd better confess. In Western countries.... no matter how much crap you give the police, they can only hold you for a determined amount of time. They might rough you up a bit but they have to follow a rigid set of laws that is not left up to interpretation.

Posted in: Ghosn tells Nikkei arrest due to plot, treason within Nissan See in context

All the evidence against Ghosn has come from Nissan itself.... The U.S. Securities Exchange Commission is now looking into how Nissan is compensating its Executives and they don't mess around. If they can show that Nissan is supplementing income with various benefits and not reporting it... then Nissan is at fault too. And that is what I think is happening. Nissan has dished out various benefits but did not report it. So it comes down to.... legally, in Japan, does Nissan have to report all the various types of compensation or is it only the responsibility of the beneficiary.

Posted in: Californian student remains in detention 8 months after breaking lamp in Tokyo bar See in context

He's still locked up because he resisted arrest when he fully knew they were the Police and probably because he does not have the money to pay the various fines. Once he pays the fines they'll probably let him go. I'll bet this idiot really gave the Cops a hard time and now its pay back time. I find it hard to believe that they cannot come up with the money to get him out. Who paid for his trip to Japan in the first place.

Greg Kelly.... a U.S. Citizen. He was locked up with Ghosn initially. The SEC may investigate his pay by Nissan. If Nissan purchased or rented properties on behalf of Kelly and did not report it, then Nissan is guilty of improper reporting.

@BeerDeliveryGuy..... Also... and I'm laughing as I type this. So you're saying that the annexation of Korea by Japan was not considered an invasion by the Koreans? That by calling it an "annexation" some how did not make it an act of war?

If you ever wondered why Japan invaded the Korean peninsula in the first place... well the actions of both the North and South Koreans over the last 30 or 40 years might shed some light on it. Basically you can never do enough for them... they are never satisfied and will continually prod and poke you. At some point you have to stop the child from constantly driving you crazy.

Congrats Naomi! Now that the U.S.'s IRS is back open,,, they'll be interested in getting a nice percentage of her winnings. The IRS taxes all Americans regardless of where the money was made. She probably will not have to pay tax in Japan on her winnings since Japan does not have that law.
