Japan doesn’t need the death penalty as much as a change in life style which creates mental problems. You can say the same with the US or any other money or being number one obsessed culture. These needless killings won’t stop anytime soon.

We’ve yet to hear the other side of the story. Was the ship really in Iranian waters? What international rules was the ship breaking? Hearsay. Definitely a tit for tat.

BTW, I’m going solar.

Time to Abe to put his money where his mouth is. He wants to change the constitution article 9 for this very purpose. Good luck.

How many foreigners are included in these numbers? How many of these companies are J government connected? How many people actually got a raise?

Someone please take their two heads and knock them together. This is sick. At this point both have lost their moral upper hand. I’m just hoping they’re keeping their eyes and ears open and not let other nations pull quick ones as these two love birds sort things out. China is sending its boats out to the Senkaku in a test of Japan’s alertness. Someone swallow the pill and move forward.

My dad used to do that decades ago. He traveled a lot. We had a major collection of teaspoons at home. No comment.

Posted in: Leave the U.S., Trump tells congresswomen of color See in context

Very sad. No one, especially not the POTUS should be saying these things. It’s definitely not only a 1-sided problem. America’s always been torn. It seems more now than before, or is it just appearances? A prayer for oneness and harmony.

Too many excuses. Japanese culture is shy, I find individuals are not. If you at all have a desire to help or assist, then do so, no excuses.

My parents were immigrants. This is use has divided my home. I’m fully for finding who’s who. Why not? Isn’t security in great part achieved by knowing who our neighbors are? We have IDs for a reason. We don’t want illegals in our midst, get them jobs and security at home. Who’s responsible for wealth imbalance? Peace will not come within US borders, it’ll come at home, wherever it may be.

Yeah yeah. Wait a week until after the election then this hard ball game will relax. The Japanese government is playing into their hardcore supporters. Let’s see. Yawn.

How did this historian Matsudo get past all the government red tape and censors to make this public? You know denials are going to come shooting him from all corners, forcing him to recant. I hope he sticks to his guns. Maybe more will come out.

Posted in: Trump distorts census, Obama-Biden record See in context

But he’ll probably win in 2020. Trump is just the man people love to hate. C’est la vie. People forget its politics. Who doesn’t lie, his or her way? Or stretch the truth? Regardless, he’s talking to his people, the ones that are going to re-elect him. He made it to the top two years ago without CNN or others, he’ll get there again. The economy isn’t doing too badly, he’s got China dancing and he’s dancing with Kim..and Abe and others. He’s happy.

I side with the franchise operators here. These are people, not machines or robots. I wonder what excuse the courts will give. It’s all very numbing to the mind.

Posted in: Abe says no need to raise sales tax beyond 10% for decade See in context

When the 10% does take effect, if it’s voted for, many will lose jobs, bonuses, raises, etc. Like always, Abe will depend on foreigners to buoy him up, whether workers, travelers, olympics, etc. Japan is stuck. No forward movement without foreigner money or people. They know it as much as they’ll deny it.

Foreigners will be milked for all they’re worth, whichever their category. Maybe the nouveau riche whalers can help.

Posted in: Japan curbs technology exports to S Korea See in context

I guess this is good if you think money can pay for rapes and missing souls. Agreements, signatures, etc have little to no meaning to the individuals and families affected. Holding on to pieces of signed paper is an insult to the innocent. We signed an agreement with your government. It’s OK. It’s all taken care of. Go bark at them, not us. Leave us alone. Sorry. This ain’t gonna cut it.

The government (LDP) has done so much for their local electorate. What’s in it for the big cities? LDP electorate IS in the inaka, countryside. Nevertheless, the LDP are here to stay since the opposition has no idea how to fight this corrupt party.
