    Telecommunications equipment includes cellphones.

    That's a hell of a lot of cell phones.

    Why would anyone pay any attention to these marketing campaigns terribly disguised as shallow and fake awards?

    Look in a mirror.......

    Sure didn't take long for Abe to find replacements. Seems to me he had (has) a backup plan in place for all of them.

    The suggestion that a jealous "old boys network" within the LDP brought her down is a bit ludicrous.

    It's ludicrous to think that the LDP is just one happy family.

    LMAO! ..........Eh I am pretty the brown envelopes stuffed with 10ers are still VERY prevalent country wide, vote buying is still a happening phenomena sadly!

    I for one would love to hear how you can back this one up with fact rather than conjecture.

    The "good-ol' boys" network is probably pissed off at her and Abe for choosing her as Justice minister over some other crony that served their time and "deserved" the post more than her.

    They went searching for any little thing to bring about her downfall and toss some egg on Abe's face.

    As an analogy, SHE DID NOT SPEND people's money. She spent her party funds donated by individuals/corporations..

    So...corporations and individuals who donated cash to her are not considered people by you. Interesting theory.

    The rest of what you wrote doesn't matter one bit, as whatever happens in gaikokuland doesn't count because it ain't Japan and it ain't Japanese politics.

    That sounds like you are preaching apathy.

    It's called reality.

    My point was that this is the first time I've felt that way about Japan, despite being English.

    Strange, feeling embarrassed by a politician who lies, or gets their fingers caught in the cookie jar.

    I for one would be more embarrassed by admitting (publicly) that I was embarrassed about something that I have no control over.

    The Justice Minister, blatantly lying in front of everyone?! Disgusting.

    You are certainly easily disgusted if you are bothered by a politician lying in front of everyone. It's nothing new.

    If there is any legitimate media outlet that believes that child pornography is justifiable they should be shut down post-haste.

    No one in their right mind should see any "benefit" from crap like this, even if it isn't their own opinion.

    This is a knee-jerk PROPOSAL in response to Ebola. Japan is little prepared to handle a true outbreak, not with the procedures currently in place. Give samples does little to prevent an outbreak when it takes nearly 3 weeks for symptoms to actually appear.

    Public relations ploy to keep the lemmings happy.

    Manufacturing even more Weapons of Mass Destruction and flogging them to the world so that more people can slaughter more people. This kind of business ought to be as illegal as selling illegal drugs.

    Get your head out of the sand, I suppose you would prefer if everyone used their fists instead? Arms dealing has been going on ever since man invented weapons and will continue on as long as people want to kill one another.

    Unless you prefer to speak Chinese that is.

    While the government has cut subsidies to folks who put panels on their roof and the electric utility down here in Okinawa is no longer purchasing excess electricity from anyone who had panels placed on their house after August 8th of this year.

    It cost me over 2.5 million yen to have solar panels installed on our house earlier this year, we got a 60,000 yen subsidy from the government, when it was as high as 600,000 until late last year. Without having the utility purchase the excess electricity we are producing there would have been no real merit to installing the panels.

    Plus there are people who have had panels installed on their open property, a friend of mine had 200 panels installed at a cost of over 10 million yen, with the expectation that he would be able to pay the loan back through produced energy and the panels are sitting there unused because the local utility will not pay for the produced electricity.

    There has been a dramatic increase of private users, like us, who installed solar after Fukushima and the government is cutting subsidies all over the board. Articles/information like this just proves once and again the government is not interested in renewable energy, only energy that can be produced by a business for profit.

    Also this just puts money into the pockets of a major corporation using taxpayers money for funding.

    Japan doesnt want solar, this is lip service, the current administration just wants the nukes back online!

    Considering that even in this govt housing I'm living, most apts housing gaijins have varying satellite discs.

    How ironic a gaijin living in Japanese government housing refusing to pay for a Japanese government funded service.

    Oh and BTW a lot of those apts that have satellite dishes on them are paying for BS broadcasting which is also NHK as well and roughly 2,000 per month MORE than those who do not have the BS service.

    I use my TV only for the PlayStation and that I didn't even have the cable that connected the RF signal to my TV.

    Sounds like you have an analog TV. If that's the case you are going to need more than just a cable, you'll need a converter box to receive the digital signal.
