Good luck. Please be honest if you do run into ETs or whatever.

Police all over the world are show rigidity in different forms. Here police don’t even smile. Fear of stopping over a line lest you get demoted, lower bonus, left out at next promotion, etc. leave the policeman walking a tight rope. Open mindedness, creativity and kindness don’t count.

They got cocky. They became rich. They built their military. They threatened the world. Now they fear their citizens getting angry and rebelling. Beginning of the end for the China we now know? Play the cards right and see the country break down a la Soviet Union.

Like all good Republican, Trump is pretty weak at home and good internationally. Standing up to (especially Asian) international economic and military threats is not a matter close to US shores so not so close to US hearts. We need a strong stance in Washington. Bullies taking advantage of US shortsightedness will at some point pay. They’ll scream bloody murder but they’ll have recourse but retreat - and pay.

You’re forgetting the fuel surcharge, even when costs go down fuel surcharge stays high.

Posted in: Trump heads to U.N. as U.S. retreats from world See in context

I don’t think the US could retreat from the world even if it wanted to. At some point they’d have to make a U-turn. Incredibly, with all the media dogging, the Potus is enjoying a substantial backing. Trump isn’t without his faults, for sure but some world as well as inside US issues are decades old, from NK & China to immigrants, etc. Trump is playing bad guy when none before him would. To think about it, he’s survived quite well.

Posted in: 5 things to know about Japan's pacifist constitution See in context

Reality is that Abe won't use the revised constitution for offensive purposes. My worry is his successors. Without lifting a finger they'll have inherited an open door to militarily get back territories they consider theirs. We know there are enough extremists out there just itching for the opportunity, and enough rubber stampers to go along.

The flip side is that if you wait long enough the %age of halves, mixed blood in Japan will have grown to a level many may not care to fight or get back territories.

BTW, funny how this ‘good news’ suddenly happens on Election Day, as if the PM had anything to do with a successful economy. The three arrows never added up to much. The only thing buoying the economy is foreign tourism. The PM spent years fighting anything related to foreigners in Japan until one day suddenly the only bright light in his career were tourists. Welcome to Japan.

”PM Abe, the Fighter from Yamaguchi”.

Is Abe from Yamaguchi or a member of the Yamaguchi?

BTW, Mr. Ishiba, I didn’t really see you put up a good fight. I kind of felt you were put there for a show; a pretend democratic election. Nothing convincing nowadays in this land of the Rising Sun.

The disaster fund's reserves are supposed to be maintained and grown through investments

Grown through investments......is this supposed to be a joke or what? A Japanese government entity looking to MAKE money through investing?

Didnt the Japanese RedCtoss put all the Fukushima donations into a fund investing in Vietnam rather than give it to the needy in the disaster areas?

I knew it. Lots of tough talk but no teeth. No realism. Japan’s changing. Can’t turn back. Take a good look at Japan now. It’s going the way of the dinosaurs or dodo bird.

Russia can’t return Japan’s islands or anything. How would Russia / Putin get away with not returning what belongs to other nations? Can’t Abe understand this? Is Japan special, as I’ve mentioned before? Is this what the change of the constitution is all about? Pushing this issue is looking for war. Guaranteed.

Posted in: Japan proposes end to commercial whaling ban See in context

National sovereignties. Isn’t this what’s causing all these world problems today? It’s not about people or right or protecting environments. Isn’t it about me, my country, my culture being more than yours? All culture is humankind’s patrimony. No national sovereign owns it or any part of it. This includes whales, etc.

Posted in: Abe aims for constitution change in bid for extended term See in context

With the change of the constitution from pacifist to free to openly be aggressive, what nick-name are we going to have for Japanese? There’s too much superiority mindedness in Japan to not be aggressive when things don’t go their way. This constitution must not change. After WWI Germany came back to be aggressor again. Will Japan repeat this mistake with a constitution change? I hope not.

Posted in: Abe aims for constitution change in bid for extended term See in context

I wonder where the first shot is going to be, Russia, in search of a return of its 4 islands, or China trying to protect its shipping lanes? A third option is to go for Japan’s kidnapped people in North Korea. Wherever the shots are fired, I don’t see peaceful purposes in changing the constitution.

Tax then give tax breaks. Am I missing something here? I agree with most comments here. We've reached imagination bankruptcy. This is a precursor to monetary bankruptcy...and there's the prospect we'll have this same government for another term.

No comment. Protecting home grown industries. Wait till uncle Donald gets a whiff of this.
