    This is a fantastic opportunity for the people in Okinawa to "stand up" the central government of Japan in Tokyo. Naha Mayor Onaga thankfully recognizes the historical importance of defeating Nakaima and creating an Okinawa is not a "puppet" of the government.

    Every young person eligible to vote has freedom for you to create an Okinawa that people will envy, and appreciate. Okinawa has so much potential.

    People have very short memories here. IF an anti-base candidate actually wins the election, and with Abe and the LDP controlling the national government, Okinawa, the poorest prefecture in all of Japan, is going to be in serious trouble AGAIN.

    When Ota was the Gov, funding from the national government dried up and Okinawa sunk into a deeper recession that took a decade to recover from.

    The economy is the trade-off to accepting Henoko. If it doesnt get built, Okinawa is going to be hard pressed to find funding for the large number of public works projects that are already underway, and will cause an even bigger recession than last time.

    I'm surprised that Nakaima has the gall to run for a third time after he betrayed his people.

    Why I not surprised at your lack of insight. You REALLY do not understand politics here.

    The LDP had better force one or the other out of the election or they could very well lose as both Onaga and Nakaima are from the LDP and with both in the race the vote will split. If it stays as it is it is very possible for a 3rd party candidate to step in and win.

    Ok time for Abe to go on national TV and eat a plate full of mecury laden whale meat and then tell the country it's safe, just like Fukushima........

    When will the people of this country wake up!

    No one including the government can't force someone to sell land which they own. But this is a case of both national need and national emergency.

    Yes the government can, if IT so chooses to do so. But talking about it and doing it are two different things.

    How is it that the government listens to the people on this issue but not about stopping the restart of the reactors throughout the rest of the country? Go figure.

    The numbers do add up for essentially we are talking about people who are in "desperately" in need of employment.

    The one's who "desperately" need a job would have work. It's the one's that Mom and Dad are supporting that get figured into the equations.

    Hence, you want her to disappear because you hate her. You don't like her, you change the channel like I do.

    Contrary to what you right here, I do not hate her, I just do not like the "dumbing" down of Japanese TV that has been occurring over the past few years. She represents the best (worst?) of the lot.

    It seems that Rola has not been affected bad about her father's crime since her father was on news. However most Japanese celebrities are usually affected more or less if their family members committed some kind of crime. She is doing fine so far as usual.

    Maybe it's because she comes across as being such an air-head that nobody considers it possible that she could be a part of the crime.

    Rola is not complicit in the crime and has no collective responsibility.

    One never knows exactly if this is true or not. She should remove herself from the limelight until it's settled, because this will never go away for her as long as her father is going through the system.

    Rola should take the high road and this and follow in the footsteps of so many other so-called "talento" and remove herself for the public eye at least until this issue is settled.

    It's the Japanese way.....

    and what's going to happen to the Chinese regulators who should've prevented the meat from reaching the stores? I'm guessing nothing substantial, it's China afterall.

    Actually if it keeps going I'll bet they put a bullet in the back of the head of the folks responsible, it's China after all.

    None, zip,zero, nada. The government is NOT funding construction for this line. JR Central is funding it privately so they will not be hampered with government (polititians) internvention.

    Ok, who is paying for the appropriated land needed for the construction?

    It is absolutely incredible to me that a country that prides itself on being an "advanced nation" organises HUGE deer hunts. Not for the meat. Just for the "pleasure" of killing a beautiful animal.

    BTW, you ever heard of culling?

    Is this government funded? I hope my taxes are not used for this shiny new toy

    There are few if any major corporations in Japan that could undertake a job like this WITHOUT government assistance. The point is just how much is the government helping to fund it.

    Japanese pitchers are also not always scheduled to pitch regularly either. Teams will typically reserve their better pitchers for "bigger" games on their schedule as well.

    MLB doesnt want Japans washed up pitchers. they want the best that will last over time bringing a good return for the investment. And Japanese Pro Baseball wants to stay competitive and become just a 4A training ground for MLB.

    I am kind of surprised that she is even on TV considering what her father was into. Point is that here, other celebrities have dropped off the face of the earth for their children's or spouse's misdeeds.

    590,000 in 6 months is still an insane number...

    You think so? In a country of over 120 million people that number is not so high in comparison to other developed countries.
