Posted in: Abe nominated Trump for Nobel Peace Prize on U.S. request: Asahi See in context

Guess Putin was busy that day. Would have been a short letter, not five pages.

Dear Nobelers,

I am Putin, richest man in world. I have chest. Trump is good guy. He does what I say. Nominate him. I know where you live, Trump does not, but no problem.

I read your email.


Abe is worthless to this country. Just a horrible embarrassment like Mori and Aso and so many others. Like the first time Abe was PM, but worse now.

Posted in: Japanese couples increasingly begin to arrange prenuptial agreements See in context

Going, going, gone are simple and time honored values of love, trust, faithfulness and sacrifice for our spouses. Marriage and childbearing, the basic building blocks of a healthy society is getting harder to pull off successfully by the day. Sad.

If you mean staying in a meaningless marriage for the sake of the institution itself, yes, people are waking up to that slow motion suicide. Agree that marriage is important to society but forcing people to stay married and pretend to be happy is a crime against humanity. Family dynamics in Japan are off center and have been for decades, way too far weighted to the mother, which is unhealthy for the family and for the kids. I see this everyday. Much can be done to improve the role of woman in Japan and that will result in better marriages and families. It is easy to give up and say 'oh things were so much better way back when,' when they actually were not, than to try to make things better now.

Once her background comes to light she will fade. She is not supported by Californians for her presidential run by pretty wide margins.

Many similar comments made about Trump when he first announced. Somehow he won as he figured out how to ignite the republican base using racism and simplistic slogans. Warren has faced long odds before, beating that loser Scott Brown in MA despite Wall Street money pouring in to support him.

The odd comments from the winger crowd show they are afraid, very afraid of Warren. She is the real new deal.

Sanders garnered tremendous support from the youth of America last run, so much for the above analysis by Mr. Varnes which is clearly incorrect. It is ideas that generate support, not an age bracket. Sanders had ideas that the youth found compelling and if he had been allowed to win the Democratic nomination he would be President now because of the youth turnout. He also would have exposed Trump for the loser he is in the election process, something Hillary was unable to do, but even Trump supporters can easily see now.

Warren is the real deal. She has walked the walk from her days as a Professor to her work for the Obama administration. Anyone who just barely looks at her record can see that. Of course is you are sexist it does not make any difference what the record may be.

Last, who needs charism? The current occupant of the WH has that in a twisted way and how is that working out?

Posted in: State of the Union: Trump vows to build border wall, warns Democrats against investigations See in context

Trump has told 8000 lies so far in his administration. What's another couple hundred or so in a way too long rambling disjointed slop job.

But it is so entertaining to watch the Trump supporters go over the cliff with the Loser President. None of them supported Trump when he first ran but once he demolished the other candidates in the primaries like sheep they lined up behind the orange one. Enjoy the fall, you know its coming and it will not be pretty. The Republican Party will disintegrate as a result.

Hokkaido could use some of that global warming. Quick, give them some carbon!

The idea is that climate is changing, that means more that simply hotter temperatures worldwide-which has happened all four of the last four years. Because it snows does not mean the climate is not changing due to manmade pollution. It is incredible how gullible people can be to believe the coal and oil company simplistic propaganda and not science. Hey all of you, the earth is flat too. You read it here first.

Posted in: Trump's shutdown retreat reveals weakness See in context

Trump wins!

Only the deluded can take a total and complete lay down to Pelosi and somehow figure it

can become a win for Trump. One wonders how people can support a total conman and a traitor to his country as well, but when you read this "Trump wins!" statement it all makes sense. Trump supporters are not reality based. There is just something fundamentally wrong with them when it comes to politics. Trump has not done a single thing to help these people, not one, but yet he has 34% support. It all about delusion, not collusion, but delusion. Not until Trump is in jail for his crimes against the USA will most, not all, of his supporters wake up from the fake news fantasy world they are in now.

Here is it is guys, Trump is a loser who has failed his entire life and he does not care about you or anybody but himself. You read it here first, not really, but maybe this time you will pay attention. He just gave up the wall which is why many of you voted for him. Just let it go. Good bye wall. Oh, and this just in, Mexico is relieved there will be no wall so they can stop not paying for it. So incredibly stupid the whole wall campaign issue has been and continues to be.

Posted in: Trump agrees to end government shutdown without border wall money See in context

Word is Pelosi is working on her book now, title "The Art of Dealing with a Sucker aka Trump."

To her credit she is not gloating, if Trump had not caved in so badly and actually got his phony wall funded Twitter would have melted down via his stubby short fingers. Again, so good the adults won this one and not the petulant child in the WH and his clueless adherents.

Posted in: Trump agrees to end government shutdown without border wall money See in context

I am looking now in the Art of the Deal for the chapter on total caving. Based on Trumps multiple failures in his life it should be the best informed chapter.

So the estimate is that Trump's Wall fantasy, along with his millions of deluded followers, cost the USA economy about $6 billion in losses that will not be recovered. All for nothing. This Is the perfect example of Trump and Republican policies, huge costs, tons of idiotic propaganda and in the end zero results.

Even Ann Coulter now is calling herself stupid for supporting Trump.

Coulter slammed Trump for the concession, telling "Real Time" host Bill Maher that the president had broken "the promise he made every day for 18 months."

"Now you're finding out he's a lying con man," Maher said. "What was your first clue?"

Over laughs and shouts from the audience, Coulter replied "Okay, I'm a very stupid girl, fine."

49 C? Streets melt. Welcome to the new climate change reality. Australia is just going to get hammered. But of course the current government in power there now thinks the Chinese air conditioning companies are behind all of this in some elaborate hoax. Like Trump.

that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese.

How low does Trump need to go before the dingbat crowd dumps him. Being a traitor to his country was not enough, committing 5000 lies over the last two years, no not enough, bankrupting the US budget, no still not enough. Not getting a wall build after republicans dodged him on it for two years. Yes. Can there be a better definition of stupidity than this.

Trump will resign or be impeached. This is coming and all people with a IQ over room temperature knows this. But the blind boys will follow Trump down the drain. It is what they all deserve.

Posted in: Car driven by 79-year-old man runs onto sidewalk near Tokyo's Shinjuku Station; 5 injured See in context

Fact is that of all the various age groups is it the old that is growing in both numbers and in accidents. Young and middle aged people as a whole are having few accidents. Fatalities caused by old people driving is climbing dramatically. The Japanese government has called it a crisis. No such statements are made about other age groups. Japan is a super aging society and that is making driving

on the roads dangerous.

So you old age accident apologists, do some homework and find out who is creating the increasing risk on the roads in Japan. Old people may drive slower but they still are running over kids all the time due to incapacity physically or mentally.

When will the old age carnage stop in Japan? People over 70 cannot responsibly drive due to incapacity of their abilities. Period. All those old age defenders, your kids or grandkids have not been run over yet by some ancient person who cannot tell the gas and brake petal apart when they panic.

This happens everyday in Japan, only the most outrageous cases get reported. Old age drivers accidents are growing the fastest of any group in Japan.

The difference between young drivers and old drivers is that young drivers can drive well but sometimes do not and old drivers simply cannot drive well at all.

Cut and run. Seems to be the Republican way with the Kurds. The Kurds should know better after Bush Senior left them exposed to Saddam with horrible consequences back in the 1990s. History is going to repeat itself and the Kurds will suffer, after helping the USA get ISIS out of Syria.

Fighting crime belongs to the police, not rightwing hate groups who foment crime themselves. Australia has 25 million people. less that Tokyo who is often listed as one of the most livable cities in the world. The problem is not crowding, the problem is racism.

Immigration policy is complex and needs to be managed carefully. Calling for a final solution has nothing to do with that, it has to do with hate and racism. Using nazi salutes says it all about these people and their supporters.

Posted in: Japanese lawmaker under fire for LGBT comment See in context

The nations population is collapsing now, that has nothing to do with LGBT folks.

These statements and the many idiotic comments in this thread display what is really going on, hatred of people who are different from you. Like racism, no different. It is all counterproductive to the growth of society as LGBT people generally do better economically that straights.


So if Japan wants to grow economically then it should let LGBT folks be treated equally.

The statement by Hirasawa is moronic on the face of it. We are who we are due to our genes not due to anything else. It is like saying if we all grew wings we would not need cars. It is true but moronic. Are these wings growing now?

Posted in: Japan approves measures to help make life easier for foreign workers See in context


You are like Trump regarding Syria, you are right for the wrong reasons. Fact is that Japan is running out of people. There is a 30 to 60 percent gap in all industries in Japan between jobs posted and people applying. All industries and all salary levels. So you are wrong on this basic fact. Working wives have salary caps due to tax laws so paying them more will reduce hours worked. The issue is more complex that you want to believe.

Where you are right is that corporations who are sitting on a ton of reserves are not raising wages. Real income in Japan has been going down for all workers for decades now. Look to the LDP for why that is occurring. Here your indignation is well placed. An underclass is growing at jobs immigrants cannot do as companies are not hiring regular Japanese employees but rather are hiring contact employees in order to pay them less.

No, its called gender equality. Woman can be pilots now, hate to break that news to you. So young male cabin folk can marry pilots as well. Maybe that you will make you feel better.

BTW, it is not the 1950s now. Ganbare, I am guessing you were in HS during the Eisenhower administration?
