I get anoyed with JT writers that dont give complete information, the basic rules of jornalism dont seem to apply. In this case What is the issue, How has this come about for example. If some one could give me the background I would much appreciate it.

Taxi drivers are the worst, they act like they own the road, pull out infront of other cars and stop suddenly in stupid places.

If we keep doing the same thing we should expect the same result, said some one. Sanctions & condemnation have become blunt from over use. At least they responsible enough to wait until the exercises were over.

The cost of a body gard would be a tax deduction on any income from the books etc. Pity the government -tax payers are ultimately paying for this.

The JP gov makes too much money from smoking, tax from tobaco and restaurants, profit from JT, early deaths - less pension payments.

Posted in: Japan's household spending sags; jobless rate lowest in two decades See in context

Like other developed counties, less income and the cost of goods purchased by the young - largest market sector is falling in Japan and the items purchased are cheaper, instant gratification from games and phone apps. They dont want a car - no where to park and no time to use it, cant aford their own homes so or little or no and cheaper furniture and white goods etc, no time for hoildays so no spening at travelagents and locations, a drop in the desire to go to onsens reduces ecomic spend and dispersion of cash, clothes are cheaper thanks to UNICLO etc, less major advances in tech so less item replacement turnover, smaller homes with less space for junk, less golfers skiers etc so less equipment purchased. Not sure how pachinko and there are more and cheaper restaurants, chains.

High profile lawer in the family helped him get a lenient sentence, hopefuly the victime will get a fair amount of "sorry money".

Posted in: Trump directly scolds NATO allies, saying they aren't spending enough on defense See in context

What did the Kumbaya club expect. NATO is inefective and getting is ass kicked (by Russia) and looks like a waterd down version of a talkfest dinner club. Someone that speaks the truth and say what should be said, about time someone started speaking the truth to these political princesses.

Posted in: Japan needs anti-smoking law ahead of Tokyo Olympics: WHO See in context

As much as it is for the greater good, its sad to see a nation being forced to conform to The Nanny State ideology. The more control people are subjected to the less they become responsible for their own actions. Japanese people on the whole seem to be responsible citizens conforming needs and desires rather than endless over regulation that has buried nations in legislation.

Such a waste, seeing these people holding and taking up space that others could have used for hours and left for the next person. Its not like Hanabi where the event is only for 30 minutes.
