There is a limit politics can do. The most serious problem Japan faces today is the country is running out of steam. If the people of the country is losing out of vital forces, the government cannot do much.

We just do not have money. Do not increase national debts further.

Things do not change very much since the days of the Cold War. Russia and China team up against the west.

Differences of perceptions and values come from differences of histories, education, religions etc. - constituting characters of nations and their people. Accordingly, people of Japan and S. Korea have different characteristics. Japan and S. Korea are both considered democratic countries but their democracies are very different from the standards of U.S. and other western countries. I feel they are more reasonable. Let's play more rationally and respect differences of other country than insisting one's own demand to other countries.

Japanese politicians are poor fighters. If the same thing happens in U.S., they will reject flatly.

The more we talk, the deeper we will bog down. It is easy to understand their nature when we see what's happening in the presidential election there now.

Japanese companies moved their factories and offices overseas where land and labor cheaper and taxes lower. Also, they moved their businesses overseas to get around higher yen. The trend will continue under the globalized economy. How can we boost domestic economy under such a condition while the government must spend a lot for the welfare of aging population and debts of the nation swelling?

Financial income tax on stocks is now at 20%. If it becomes 25%, it will become very hard for petty investors to earn profits and they will stop investing in stocks. Stock investors win and lose. It is very difficult to win constantly. If they want to raise to 25%, do so to big investors who invest big and win big.

I wonder what are the prices of vaccines that we are getting free ?

Kishida changed all three corona related ministers in his new government. This puzzles me very much. The three did good jobs. They experienced a lot and know about the problems. Compared with the three, new ministers are amateur levels. I suspect about their competencies.

LDP (Liberal Democratic Party) has to change its name to Conservative Democratic Party. Next prime minister will highly be Kishida who is getting support from conservative members of LDP including Abe and Aso groups.

This is a business matter. Breach of contract should be solved in a business manner. In addition, national defense supersedes businesses. It is a liberty of Australia. Owning a nuclear sub is more appealing than having non-nuclear subs for Australia and other QUAD member countries against China that is behaving audaciously in the near seas.

She is neither a doctor nor a scientist. Stop utilizing the pandemic for her political ambition. It is OK if Japan can produce enough vaccines by herself. Using foreign made vaccines for that purpose is a shame.

Due to the outbreak of COVID 19, economic boom by Olympic did not happen and Suga had to resign. However, it was held without confusions and orderliness of Japan was proved.

Biden said U.S. would not help a country that does not have a will to stand up against their own enemies. Britain, France and other western countries will not join the fight to help Japan unless Japan shows spirit of "boots on the ground."
