    There's less demand and manufacturing going on but I'd love to see gas prices fall MUCH further here in Japan. Especially since they've (Abe ilk) raised my kei car tax by about 90%.

    Twitter is a pain to navigate and bit incoherent especially when you're following a conversation between two or more people.

    McLaren’s report last week specifically detailed how Russian state officials allegedly intervened to cover up hundreds of failed drug tests.

    The whole country should've been banned.

    Slitting the throat of an elderly priest. They must be proud.

    The title of this article should be "Rare mass killing raises questions about government and police incompetence."

    He wrote to Parliament outlining the bloody plan and saying all disabled should be put to death

    A letter was written describing and telegraphing the upcoming massacre that just occurred to the government. The police nor did social services hold or prevent him from carrying this out.

    Japan is a pretty safe society but with dumb bumbling "leaders" and law "enforcement".

    What would happen if Emperor Akihito just stopped attending any functions and his son went in his place?

    What would happen if the current emperor said, "I'm no longer the emperor, my son is," every chance he got and the son said the same thing?

    Wouldn't it become the reality?

    The Imp Household Ag. wouldn't be able to do a thing about it due to the immense pressure and acceptance by the public.

    There seems to be a lot of "hurdles" popping up everywhere as far as the government is concerned. Some thrown up in front of the emperor abdication issue and this renewable energy situation.

    Govt. subsidies have really helped spread the building of solar panels and related businesses take off in the last few years and now they've cut theses subsidies.

    The Japanese government doesn't really have the environment nor the safety of its citizens in mind when making policy and long term plans.

    When I applied for citizenship and signed immigration documents in the US they always had written questions about whether I was a member or knew members of the Nazi Party.

    Of course, had I written yes it would've been enough to deny approving any paperwork I was doing.

    They should begin replacing "Nazi Party" with "ISIS" making ANY affiliation to this disease organization open to severe persecution and banishment.

    [Rules for Abdication of the Chrysanthemum Throne] "If the Emperor/Empress wishes to abdicate the throne to his or her first born son or daughter he or she may do so."

    Insert this into the play book and presto! Problem solved. "Hurdles" cleared.

    Companies should pull out of this dump. A dump with lots of money but jingoistic idiots everywhere.

    Don't give them market status and seriously consider booting them out of the WTO.

    If this is the first time in 200 years for an emperor to abdicate- what happened and what was the protocol then?

    The kunaicho (Imp. Household Ag.) is too rigid and overbearing.

    I hope Akihito wanting to abdicate encourages them to make a few progressive changes.

    I also hope Akihito steps down, regardless of what the kunaicho says about it, and forces them to accept Naruhito as Emperor.

    Let the Emperor determine the course of events within reasonable bounds not the kunaicho.

    July 24-Aug 9. That's going to be one hot sweaty Olympics. Awful timing to play anything in Japan.

    I wish they'd have it in October like they did for '64 Olympics.

    That way they'd have the World Series just finishing up in the States.

    Plus, most likely, many of the players wouldn't even be on the two final teams and could come over after the season with plenty of time to spare.

    I've got a strong feeling this is going to be one of those I couldn't handle the stress anymore nor put up with the baby constantly crying situation. It's tough - I wish there were more support for new moms/dads.

    If China had done more to rein in this belligerent regime then THAAD wouldn't be making an appearance on the Korean Peninsula.

    China doesn't want anti-ballistic missile batteries nearby - well, the rest of East Asia doesn't want nuclear capable missiles flying through the air every few months.

    If China doesn't like it then they need to DO something. They're NK's only supporter.
