Posted in: Inflation, not deflation, is now Japan's political hot potato as election looms See in context

its ironic that Japan finds 2% inflation too difficult while the rest of the world has this amount of inflation almost every year. the problem isnt the inflation its that the government doesnt force companies to increase wages at least what the inflation rate is. 1st thing they can do is increase the minium wage to 1200yen hr

More Anti-4th Liberals doing what they do best in a Blue State, but no reports of the gun shootings on a daily bases in Chicago.

why red states constantly rank in the highest violent crime per capita and homicides per capita, once again the stats proving the republican's wrong.

We have less terrorist attacks than Europe so I do believe the second amendment places a huge role in that.

LOL its becuase you dont share a land mass for Terrorist to easily travel to Europe.

So it depends on your outlook as to which nation is more violent because there are a lot of variables when you put it in that context, but I get your point,

its not, US violent crime rate, homicide rate is higher than every democratic European country, some 4 to 5 times higher, those are the facts.

Kyrgios said Tsitsipas should be kicked out of Wimbledon, recalling the incident at the U.S. Open in 2020 when Novak Djokovic was defaulted from the tournament after hitting a line judge with a ball.

dont agree with Kyrgios often but on this i do, if a players bad temper hurts somebody on the court or in the crowds, it should be an automatic disqualification, although I think most of Kyrgios outburst was to rattle Tsitsipas and it seemed to have worked

Posted in: Tokyo raises alert level amid resurgence in COVID-19 cases See in context

 vaccination is not effective at stopping infection therefore there isn't such thing as herd immunity with the vaccines. 

i never read anywhere that the vaccine would stop infection, what it does do is drastically reduce long covid, deaths. many people will still get covid vaccinated but their risk of dying and long term heath effects are greatly diminished, statistics from around the world is showing exactly that. nobody is forcing you to get vaccinated, there are no mandatory vaccinations in japan. Yes Japan is adverse to risk and their slow reopening is annoying, but of you live here then youve got to accept that or leave

Posted in: Power crunch averted as record heatwave scorches Kanto area See in context

solar on all roofs to use during heat wave .. solar can easily power a conditioners for a house.

the effect is that it gets even hotter because of all the conditioners running lol

But Solar is the best solution

agreed Japan could have done something years ago, mandate that all new homes built to have a minium amount of solar panels installed eg 4kw 6kw etc, solar panel system isnt a big investment compared to the price of a new house. if every home /business in Japan had a few solar panels installed we wouldnt be have electricity shortages. problem is big generators dont want the competition and will lobby the government to stop it.

Yes, and the Dems had over 6 years time to build over dozen cases times 3 and still nothing and the Dems still are trying.

republican's spent 2.5 yrs investigating Bengazi, closed it down through lack of evidence.

Jan 6 hearing have shown far more evidence, by republican's than anything the GOP could of dreamed up.

these are only the hearings the trials come later, even FOX is getting twitchy

She testified under oath she wrote something on a notecard. Someone else already testified previously that THEY wrote it.

so all those that says shes lying under oath are the same people that can say whatever they want on social media news etc, if theyre so convinced shes lying then they should testify under oath as well.

lying under oath has ramifications, saying what you want in public , doesnt

I would rather live knowing my parents wanted me, rather than knowing I was alive because my mother wa subjugated by religious zealots and forced to give birth under duress.

its worse than that many states will not allow abortions even if the woman has been violently raped, or even raped by a family member, seriously which woman would want to give berth and raise a kid under those condition

Posted in: High court rejects paternity harassment allegations by Canadian man See in context

this case isn't as clear cut as this story makes it out to be. he took extended leave, not just paternity leave, for his child. and when he finally decides, on his own terms, to return to work, he expects everything to be the same. well, sorry, dude. 

this is one reason why government jobs are so desirable, there are clear entitlements set by the government that workers are entitled to.

My J brother in law works for the government, and he takes every entitlement that hes allowed, even if other workers complain about it. He took maternity leave for both of his kids, takes all his annual leave hes entitled too as set by the law. theres a few co workers that hit him up about it, for which he firmly replies Im entitled to it just like you, if you wont take it then that's your fault. Hes even questioned his boss about withholding pay rises to their staff, which is actually illegal, pay rise went through shortly after. Hes not a trouble maker hes a worker rights keeper, sort of an unofficial union rep. He knows the law well and he acts according to what the law states. He cant be sacked unless he does something illegal, which he never does. Even his boss is respectful of him and doesnt try and pee him off, unless he knows hes wrong, which is rarely.

The whole point is know your worker rights and stand up for them, this is far more difficult if you work for a private company. There are still a few that dont like him because hes got nads and stands up for himself, but the majority of them do like him because they know hes actually standing up for their worker rights also
