Posted in: 78% urge election before tax hikes to cover Japan defense budget rise See in context

Why bother with an election? The same LDP will be kept in power, this time with a "mandate" to increase taxes.

Posted in: Philippines willing to deport alleged robbery ringleader 'Luffy' to Japan See in context

I can see why the Philippines might be willing to send him back to Japan. Why keep a known criminal if you can put the problem elsewhere?

Posted in: Company uses whale meat vending machines to promote sales in Japan See in context

I know NO ONE who wants to eat whale. No one.

You've found one here. I have only had it a few times, but I enjoyed it every time. Very delicious. I would eat it more often if I could find it. My local sushi restaurant only has it a few times a year so it's hit and miss when I can get it.

Posted in: IOC's move to reintegrate Russia into Olympics meets opposition See in context

Official IOC policy is to take as much money as they can and leave everyone else in the dust.

Posted in: Japanese power firms seek price hikes, adding to household burden See in context

Inflation is said to be around 4%, but I see much higher increases everywhere, and now power companies are showing 30% inflation. Something isn't right.

Posted in: IOC seeks pathway to let Russians compete at Paris Olympics See in context

The pathway for the IOC involves the transfer of thick envelopes. Money is all they care about.

I never did trust that liberal rag. This list does nothing to build up trust.

Posted in: Kishida weighs Ukraine visit in February to hold talks with Zelenskyy: report See in context

That guy just doesn't know how to stay home and take care of business. How many trips does this make for him?

Couldn't have happened to a better person. Lock up that privileged troublemaker.

Biden doesn't have a clue. Immigration policies are just the tip of the iceberg.

Trying to get out of the country as much as possible so as not to face the public.

Posted in: Disney's Black mermaid is no breakthrough – just look at the literary subgenre of Black mermaid fiction See in context

I doubt I'll see the movie for a long time because I don't go to theaters much anymore and I don't have Disney +. Nor do I have young children anymore. That being said, I have seen pictures of Halle Bailey, and she looks to be a very beautiful woman. Why anyone would refuse to see this movie because of her is beyond me. I'm looking forward to seeing it someday with my grandchildren (assuming I ever get any).

Posted in: End of Japan COVID curbs triggers surge in visitors to nearly 1 million in November See in context

Though masks may not be legally required, I haven't seen any store or other public access building without a sign requesting them to be worn. Japan would be much better without those signs, and everyone just taking off that awful mask.

The IOC is bound to only one principle. Take the money and run.

Good luck finding an impartial jury for a trial. Love him or hate him, everyone has an opinion about him.

What a boring sport. What a horrible country to hold the World Cup in. Winning through PK is just pathetic.

Posted in: Man gets suspended sentence for causing plane to divert after refusing to wear mask See in context

I never wear masks in airplanes, either. Of course, I haven't been in an airplane in over five years, and probably ten years before that. I just don't go anywhere that requires masks. I have had exactly one place of business tell me to either wear a mask or don't shop there. Guess what? I no longer shop there. Their loss, because I used to go there every day.

Posted in: Japan's middle class being gutted as salaries fall See in context

The more I read here, the less I want to be here.

I feel the same way. Problem is, it's not any better in the U.S., where I am from. Well, at least I wouldn't have to wear a mask over there.

Taking funds away from Tohoku is almost criminal. Of course, they already did that for those infernal Olympics, so why not again?

Posted in: Taxes to be raised to cover additional defense spending: Kishida See in context

Increasing the corporate tax is widely seen as a viable option.

Which corporations will pass on to their customers, so no relief there.

If implemented as planned, the funding scheme ...

I love the use of the word scheme. It implies nefarious intentions. I wonder what Japanese word this was translated from.

I certainly hope so.

Iran is going down and will do so by its own people. Good!

Posted in: DOJ subpoenas election officials in states Trump disputed See in context

Based on the last paragraph, one has to wonder why no one from Georgia was subpoenaed. They have recordings of Trump talking to either the governor or Secretary of State, or both that should do the trick.

Don't worry. Once the IOC gets some of the opium money from Afghanistan, suddenly this concern over women in sports will be forgotten.

Hashimoto, who also served as the country's Olympic minister, said it is important to get to the bottom of the allegations as soon as possible so Sapporo can proceed in its campaign to host the 2030 event.

Drag out the investigations as long as possible so that Sapporo can't get the games.
