60 BILLION yen, wow what a shed load of cash!! I thinking where that could be better spent, I keep thinking of housing, small business loans (no interest) to get small businesses up and running again, fishing boats, cafes, tourist stuff bringing tourists into out laying villages. new schools, the list goes on, although I support mr Abe but, this is unnecessary expenditure is a bit daft when your facing these problems within the economy, especially when its just for votes and politics,

Iam all in favour of self defence classes, Judo, Karate, to name a few, if these hentai muppets are about at least they might get a swift kick in the ****** it might give them something to think about next time, hopefully there won't be a next time. why should they have a free for all approach on children?

if killing these whales is in the interest of science, can we see this date that is gathered? Iam sure it will never turn up, but any cut in the killing of whales is good news.

Yoko, its not only the car culture, its lazy culture, mc Donalds, other burgers, huge portions, take away, no exercise, lack of good healthy cooking (teaching) in school culture as well.
and don't forget the UK is waddling up close behind and possibly over taken the USA in the super size stakes.

I think its about time F1 caps the amount each team spends on motor car racing, lets face it Ferrari have stacks of money to throw at development and research new tyres, ect but some of the smaller manufacturers don't have the same budget, and thats why they are in this situation. or has Bernie Ecclestone got to greedy? his wealth is estimated at $4.8 billion, could this have something to do with the smaller companies going under? but good luck to Kobi san either way.

The tax level in Japan is way to low in the UK the VAT is at 20% + other taxes especially on fuel, yes its going to be unpopular, but when is a tax ever popular? too many imported goods like fuel won't help the economy, may be closing up off shore banking loop holes or big companies pay there way rather than avoiding paying tax. this would raise the moral of the public,

when I first saw this article, my first reaction was was/did she accidentley tear her skirt and was affraid to tell her (possibly stricked) parents? that would seem logical to me, if this slashing of skirts is quite common can any one back it up with satistics or hard evidance? why is it only skirt? or isit jackets or tops as well? can any one tell me why its only skirts? is it a fettish thing? or isit a power thing?

I dont think that a 1 year old child understands the differance between right and wrong at that age, but to punish her that harshley, is wrong.

200 hours over time in a month, thats about 7 hours a day over time!! way to much, Here in the UK there is a big Japanese car manufacture (iam not saying which one) but when they first started operating they told the work force the two hours over time was compulsory and they wasn't being paid, most of the staff walk of the job after the 8 hours. and left them in the poo, the Japanese management could not understand why the Brits did this, now they pay them the over time.
Is this one of the reasons Japan is so insular? this mind set of crapping on the work force would not be taken lightly from work force from out side Japan

A spokesman (Mr Wong wayup) from the Chinese trade and export council said "its all Japans fault the economy has collapsed"
when he was asked why it was there fault, he replied "it just is" Mr Wong was seen walking off after spitting his dummy out.

its going to cost you around the £50 mark, well that it is expensive in comparison to a 10 year old single malt, but a prize winning 50 year old malt, well that it cheap or should i say good value for money. I don't suppose they would like to send a sample bottle to me, just for scientific purposes of course ??
