Zainichi are exempt from taxes

North or South Korean taxes, possibly. Certainly not Japanese taxes.

There will be millions of middle class that will receive a huge tax cut and will for more businesses to invest in training, to re-enter the US market, creating thousands of jobs across the country. 

You're not familiar with the bill, then.

The could care less if the middle class slides into further erosion.


At least the stock market is through the roof 

Yes, Trump has managed not to stop or slow the Obama stock market appreciation trend.

Moore was a grotesquely unsuitable candidate, worse even than Trump himself, which is really saying something. So it would be wrong to read too much into the result, but still it shows what voters in so-called red states really think about the Trump/Bannon agenda. Administration should be very afraid.

 blessing in the sky

Interesting phonetic transliteration of the English phrase "blessing in disguise". From what language did it come originally, we wonder!

The non-clones of the LDP should join Edano in the Rickenbacker party (check the logo), and the rest of them can do whatever they want to pass the time until they lose their seats at the next election.


Exactly. How about some credible opposition policies and positions for a change?

It is interesting watching interviews with Trump from 20-30 years ago. He was somewhat capable of participating in a conversation with another human being then. So despite all the evidence available today, it's not that he was always utterly brainless, but rather he became that way relatively recently. This probably explains why he himself doesn't know he's an idiot. In his own estimation, he still functions like a person of normal intellect.

Trump just blundered into this like the thoughtless oaf that he is. He will be genuinely surprised for about 10 seconds that this didn't improve his "ratings", and then lurch on to the next thing he can mess up. And blame Tillerson for any negative consequences for ME peace. What a dealmaker this man is!

Well Trump was right about one thing: he wasn't chosen. Got his hysterical retaliation in first this time. And yes very telling that the real winners could not be more anti-Trump.

No doubt all those being punished in this corruption clearout are guilty as sin, but are they any more guilty than their colleagues who are also guilty as sin and moreover lack the proper demonstrations of loyalty to Emperor Xi?

Exactly. If the chances of winning could be expanded by the location, timing etc of the purchase, then it would not be a random draw and the whole exercise would be unfair and pointless.

Trump has no idea himself what is truth and what is lies. And he doesn't care. Just excretes what is in his "brain" at any given point. Apart from those who believe literally anything he says, including a few on this site, nobody on earth believes anything he says. And for very good reason.

Posted in: Japan likely to tolerate smoking at restaurants after LDP's resistance See in context

So the new rule is, no smoking except if you want to smoke. Wonderful.

Unless the law changes, I agree it is risky for individual restaurants etc to ban smoking as they could lose business. Some places take that risk, but many cannot. Banning smoking by law takes the decision out of the hands of the restaurants and eliminates the 'arbitrage' effect of no-smoking places losing business to those that allow smoking.

Certainly the government should sell its remaining stake in JT, but I don't think this is mostly about money, to be honest. I think it's because most of the LDP lawmakers themselves smoke, and they haven't bothered to think about the real impact on the restaurant industry as I have mentioned here. Certainly a smoking ban is negative for tobacco companies, but they are in a long-term downward trend. JT investing aggressively in Russia and elsewhere is aimed at compensating for a shrinking home market. JT can take care of itself.
