As long as there's a paycheck these guys will tour in wheelchairs.

Uyoku dantai. The way they scream and rant and everyone just ignores them, at least they used to.

WhatMeWorry has a point. Where's the outrage amongst Osaka voters? His poll numbers are way down, but there ought to be a mob of women with torches and pitchforks waiting for him.

Why are these clubs still in business? They are on the financial record serving alcohol to baby faced teens? That's called "evidence" where I come from. Pull their damned licenses, NOW.

Posted in: Woman found guilty of assisted suicide of mother after refusing to accept welfare See in context

I blame conservatism that demonizes welfare and social assistance, as much as Ms. Osawa who actually did it. There's no such thing as self-reliance and pulling one's up by the bootstraps. All of the successful people in the world stepped up other people's ladders. And the goddess of anti-welfare ayn rand herself took social security and medicaid. The same conservative mindset then demands that Japanese court hand down the death penalty for the crime. Death, death, death. I choose a better, cooperative, non-judgmental world.

Posted in: Japan still skeptical of PSY’s popular appeal See in context

Face it Japan, the world moves on. We're not all walking around with Sony gadgets, we're walking around with Samsung and Apple phones. That starter car or second family car isn't a Honda or Toyota anymore, it's a Hyundai. Anime was maybe cool 20 years ago. They don't write novels about how Japanese Corporations are using Zen Buddhism and the book of five rings to ruthlessly take over the world like 30 years ago. Samurai movies were hip 50 years ago. Japan is no longer the default Asian country to most westerners. I still love you Japan, but you gotta get over it and not begrudge Psy's success.

Do you agree with Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto's comments on comfort women?

And if so, are you a war criminal or in the process of committing war crimes?

Oh, is that a fact, Mayor Idiot? Let's start with your wife, daughters or any other female relatives. Let's see how necessary you think it is then.

Posted in: Venezuela sets presidential election for April 14 See in context

Maduro will win, Capriles will lose. Again. Just like Hugo was elected and then reelected 3 times, just like the popular will defeated the 2002 coup attempt and turned back the attempted recall. El Commandante picked some ugly friends on the international scene, but he brought dignity and confidence to the lower and middle classes. Chavez wiped out illiteracy and opened universities. Chavez slashed poverty. Maduro has a lot to live up to. Okay, Milton Friedman lovers, flame away!

Posted in: Protesters in Tokyo demand end to nuclear power See in context

Germany is proving the whole world can go to solar right now and not give up a single convenience. The reason Japan keeps poison power is a government in bed with the profiteers, and a timid electorate desperately seeking a father figure to guide it.

I'd be stressed out too, if someone were clearly very, very wrong and my government not only decided to act like everything was okay, but my people voted in another government that when previously in power, enacted all of the policies that led to something being clearly very, very wrong.
