    The power of the Old Boys Network within the party is showing how to get rid of these women

    Right, because Old Boys are never taken down in political scandals.

       (That was sarcasm.)

    And then people like young Mr. Yokota come along and show them that modernizing can make them competitive.

    More competitive does not mean internationally competitive.

    “If our supply exceeds domestic consumption, then we will bring it overseas—the TPP wouldn’t be a threat in that sense,” he said.

    And if there were unicorns, you could use the manure for fertilizer.

    And they're rankings doesn't include Japan's new secrecy law that came into effect just recently - which is not in the new ranking. I imagine Japan's press freedom will be far worse next year.

    I imagine so will S. Korea's.

    “I apologize from the bottom of my heart for the fuss created by my private matter,” Obuchi said in response to questions at a panel in the upper house.

    She should be sacked for thinking political slush funds are a private matter.

    If I were a conspiracy fan, I'd say some good old boy from Nagatacho decided to squash any hopes of Japan having a female prime minister and 'leaked' this info

    You're falling victim to the same thinking. Politicians get taken down all the time; having enemies is part of the job. Why assume it's because she's a woman?

    It has been a tradition for farmers to allow a certain proportion of their crop to run to seed, and collect the seed to plant next year. Monsanto, with a team of detectives and a legal arm is making this impossible. The farmer has to pay the Monsanto tax, shelling out money each year for new seeds.

    Any what are they using Monsanto seeds? Oh yeah, because it's better. Don't want to play by Monsanto's rules, don't buy Monsanto.

    Really? You're gonna go to the lowest of the low just to show your support for the military? The little girl was clearly a VICTIM of WAR...so get off your horse and own to it. Your military is nothing but scum.

    I don't have a military, and no, that post was not to show support for the military. It was to show that the situation is not as simple as you would to believe. It's easy to be a pacifist when you don't have to confront violence directly.

    The little girl was clearly a VICTIM of WAR...so get off your horse and own to it.

    Own to what? I'm not the one saying you reap what you sow. That was you, and it's very clear that one often doesn't reap what one sows.

    Seen the latest youtube videos of those poor people getting beheaded? The beheaded little girl wearing full white socks?... As a Conservative Mennonite who is NEVER allowed to join any coward military force I shall tell you this, You reap what you sow, period.

    Did the decapitated little girl wearing white socks reap what she sowed? She must've been a bad little girl.

    Prove it. "Christian" countries like the US (which always PROUDLY calls itself Christian and who's president is Christian) have managed a body count of over half a million in the last decade. The Muslims just don't even come close.

    Iran-Iraq war had more than 1 million casualties. The Muslims more than come close.

    And in your over half a million figure, the majority of casualties are Muslim-on-Muslim.

    Simple solution: Record the license of noisy bikes. Notify the owner that the bike needs to be re-tested for sound. If the owner fails to comply, cancel the driver's license. The owner can still un-mod the bike before testing, but it will be a nuisance to do that.

    NHK is good. I bet there is not one poster here who has not watched the Taifu news on it.

    One part incompetence, one part dithering, one part foot-dragging, one part fear of change, two parts collusion with organized crime. Just look at how they're pushing for casinos no-one wants.

    just to take one example over many, the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy say a lot to me

    I'm currently in the process of stockpiling massive volumes of alcohol in my apartment should this thing turn ugly. Keep your heads down, JT folk - stay safe.

    Better test it first. You wouldn't want to be stockpiling dodgy grog.

    This storm will be APOCALYPTIC. It will LITERALLY ravage umbrellas and TEAR headwear from its victims. Japan will never be the same. Or probably not.

    And in muslim's holy book Quran stated that no one have the write to force someone else to accept his faith or opinion, muslims became muslims by their own will

    Discriminatory taxation is part of the early history of Islam, the intent being to coerce conversions. Better than conversion on pain of death, but hardly conversion of one's own free will.

    The only reason in Islam to take someone's life is if that person killed another person

    False. There is the death penalty for non-violent "crimes" such as apostasy and sex outside of marriage.
