Ooooh if I could only audit some of the government books. Truth is stranger than fiction, beats any thriller, suspense novel or whatever.

Posted in: A U.S. midterm message that resonates across the Atlantic See in context

A liberal ➞ leftist agenda has been a cancer in America for ½ a century or more. No secret. It’s intersting how with all the leftist media and ultra-liberal Hollywood, so much of America is still by and large conservative. Too much intellectual talk without depth of mind. It’s no wonder people like Americans but not the US government where it's money parlance. No heart. I dont say what out POTUS today is all correct but I do believe he’s a product of a tired nation being unbalanced by money and all its corruption; something many in those high, well-paid positions may themselves cringe at.

If only they could be believed. How many years have they been ‘researching’? Any results ever published? Any major finds other than whale meat still is a decent source of income? That’s the research: how much can they still make?

Lots of wall talk, stopping the immigrants at the border, split families, etc. Yet, the POTUS has a good number of Latins supporting him. Also, with all the media and Hollywood and other popular figures fighting Trump, they barely change things. Who’s out of sync, I ask?

Posted in: Woman killed after her car crashes into truck during police chase See in context

Why the need for a siren? Why chase her..or anyone? For sure by now police have learnt to do things in a more subtle, quiet way. Just wait for her at home. Shell return as soon as she’s cooled down. What does the husband feel now that the police chased his wife to death? Any kids?

Posted in: Gov't considering Y10 trillion stimulus to offset sales tax hike: sources See in context

A break for big companies translates into an under-the-table handout to banks. Can’t have corporations fail because it is the banks who would ultimately suffer. We workers just dont get our bonuses or raises. Companies just do away with their QC people, etc. Banks are the ultimate sacred cow we cannot lose. National debt may be held by Japanese but banks are not healthy. Japan, Inc needs to take care of them.

Posted in: Japan to set up panel to tighten drinking rules after pilot scandals See in context

Final comment. These pilots will not be taken off rosters, just transferred, given different routs. There’s a shortage of pilots. Airlines are in heavy cutthroat competition, Japanese airlines make good money. We’re stuck with these pilots. God Bless the passengers.

Posted in: Japan to set up panel to tighten drinking rules after pilot scandals See in context

Regardless of airline, governments should regulate at each airport the condition of pilots. They check airplanes, why not pilots and staff. Aren’t there IATA regulations each pilot must follow, regardless of airline? Why do I feel there are more alcohol / drug abuse problems than we are led to believe?

Posted in: Japan to set up panel to tighten drinking rules after pilot scandals See in context

I question, why wait till things happen? Luckily nothing yet has happened. I would be willing to bet that the alcoholism rate among pilots is much higher than is being told. Only these few have been caught. We’re lucky planes can function to a high degree without these sots..sorry. Should there be an emergency what excuse can the airlines give?

Pray..and tighten regulations.

Posted in: Japan's youth suicides hit 30-year high See in context

Priorities. Work hard. Study hard. Get into a good school then a good university then a good company then a good spouse. What’s missing? Nothing. Life is beautiful. I really am sorry for these young people. The concept of happiness is intimately connected to monetary success. Of course it’s a must, but life here is empty. Quality of life is a non-concept if not linked to a name company and a good salary. Pity. Success at what price? Your life!

Choking at 6pm. Pronounced dead the next morning. What happened in between, say 12 or more hours? What care was he given? What negligence.

Good going Hitachi. You’re one more name on a growing list that’s making Japan dark, untrustworthy, etc. Omotenashi. Rome died from inside, not outside forces.

Agreed..but we must start here. It’ll take time, but as in this case, economic forces will guide the way. When money and hours have been spent trying and honing skills companies then the government wont be able to let them go. It’s a patience game.

Serrano: When are they going to cut spending?

They have. Now they don’t have public trash cans in the streets. You can thank Ohm Shinrikyo for that. Immediately after the attack they got rid of all the trash cans. Never again. Now the trash is on the ground.

No chance the economy will improve so much as to warrant a tax hike. It hasn’t in years, why should it now? I’m sorry for the PM but it just ain’t happening.

Why is it that in Japan we don’t have these problems but when this technology is exported then they suddenly appear? Two-tier technology, one for us and one for them.

Posted in: Trump warns that migrants who throw stones at U.S. military may be shot See in context

At this point I don’t find these ‘immigrants’ so benign. They know what’s awaiting them as they try to pass the border. Such a mass migration knowing you’re headed toward certain resistance, even violent, sounds a little odd. These people have no inherent rights or claims trying to enter the US - or Mexico. I feel there’s more to this story that we’re not being told by an anti-Trump media. Fake news? Not objective news. I don’t see these ‘immigrants’ as suicidal. What’s or who’s pushing them? Their fate on this journey isn’t any better than at home. Why go through all this trouble? An uncertain fate awaits them as they approach the US border. For all these desperate actions, I don’t see what they’ll gain. We’re not being given the full and true story here.

Posted in: JAL pilot, arrested in London before flight to Tokyo, admits being almost 10 times over alcohol limit See in context

I wonder how many of our pilots, Japanese or not, have these drinking problems, and I call it a problem. They’re snug in their belief in and trust in our high technology, but we pay to get us to our destination on their planes in one piece; JAL and ANA are also extra expensive. Service and frills are nice but they come in a distant second to not getting to our destination in one piece.

Unfortunately Japanese tatemae is losing out to their honne. We’ve seen a lot of this lately. This loss of shine is now creeping into our safety.

Posted in: ANA apologizes for flight delays due to pilot's drinking See in context

Funny, years ago we had an ANA story coming from the US, LA?, where the plain was delayed many hours because of a drunk pilot. ANA? All airlines? No testing as they get ready to take their seat as pilots or in the cockpit? Scary!

Here's an untried, novel idea. Leaders sit and discuss this issue as two normal humans. A little like a Vatican Conclave. They don’t leave the room until a final declaration both agree to is signed.
