    Poverty will also decrease as a result. Population decline, especially in overpopulated Japan, is a GOOD thing. Japan's industrial robots will replace manufacturing sector jobs.

    With somewhere in the neighborhood of 35% to 40% of the population on fixed incomes, the country in debt up to it's eyeballs, the social welfare system underfunded and no youth to replace the needed funds, higher taxes, loss of manufacturing jobs due to labor costs being overly high, weaker yen (need to import raw materials for manufacturing) and a shrinking middle class, you think that poverty will decrease?

    A country that turns human error into negligence charges is not going to make it very far as everyone thinks only of covering his butt.

    There is a point however where human error does become negligence, particularly when there is more than one person responsible. It's a pattern with TEPCO which means that errors were as it seems to me, common knowledge, and overlooked.

    Something is not right. The economy here by all rights should be close to toilet flush stage. I find these "statistics" and cheery data kind of scary. I wonder how much the average person cares about the smoke and mirrors being played on them.

    Right...they read the newspapers and the newspapers are always right!

    Ok...did she split her gut too? Figures she would resign, but now what does the prosecutors office do? I'll bet slap on the wrist and send her packing home to the USA.

    To date, there are around 1,000 suicides connected to the displacement in Fukushima.

    Where are you pulling data or information from? You have made a few erroneous statements regarding a number of different stories. There have been over 1,000 deaths related to the displacement and it is wrong to write suicides, there are a ton of other reasons.

    TEPCO should be held responsible for these deaths, but they were and are not all due to suicides but other health related issues.

    Abe will lead his countrymen to victory, fearless against all opposition, in the name of freedom and democracy.

    Nice try at sarcasm

    They have already axed half a dozen people that disagreed and they changed the rules so there didn't need to be a public referendum to change the constitution.

    When did this happen?

    Good. Let's hope enough to see a better PM replace him

    As much as I dislike Abe I wonder just who would be better to replace him with, seeing as how it's the party in power that determines who gets to be PM, so instead of Abe, we would get another LDP hack, who would be under the thumb of one or another group or clique within the party.

    Japan really needs election reform to make the position of PM answerable to all the people and not just one tiny electoral district.

    Assuming you're a male, kudos. Who (males) in their right mind could resist/deny/neglect a woman's curves, intellect, charm, company etc??

    Fair assumption, but there are males that find, for what ever reason other males to be to their likes or desires.

    It is inherently wrong to assume that all are the same. If two men or two women choose to be in love with each other and decide to marry, what right does anyone have to dictate that their choice is immoral or wrong?

    The Ryukyu Shimpo and the Okinawa Times represent the views of most of the people of Okinawa

    Actually the Shimpo and TImes create the views of the Okinawan people. They ONLY portray or give one side of a story, and if you or anyone thinks that is responsible media, then I suggest you move to North Korea or China.

    It is a FACT that neither of the local press here are only reporting the news, they influence public opinion by only printing one side, which is irresponsible reporting. The people know no better, because they are not given the opportunity to make their own decisions based upon all the pertinent information.

    Newspapers in Japan influence to a great deal, public opinion and thought, and people here trust almost implicitly whatever is written in their newspapers.

    It is very much like the Education ministry or anything put out by the government, the people "BELIEVE" what is written, and take it all as fact, even when it is only one sided.

    Sorry day for personal liberty

    You have ZERO idea what personal liberty is if you think this decision by the court is wrong! This GRANTS personal liberty.

    Time for the world to get their Judeo-Christian heads out of the butts and recognize that freedom is just that, freedom, with no restraints based upon some archaic beliefs that people of the same sex can not love each other.

    My wife is a female....so what, that is MY choice, however NO ONE should be enforcing their beliefs onto others, and being against same sex marriage is just that, pushing your own thoughts and beliefs onto people who dont agree or think the same as you do!

    Freedom of the press is one thing, accuracy in reporting is another, and the Shimpo and Times have neither in reality.

    Married at the age of 20, the woman, who was not named, said she herself never had affairs. She knew for a long time her husband had cheated on her but did not confront him, fearing her children would see their parents fight.

    A 71 year old woman is not named in a trial? Right...

    Japan plans to stop power firms building coal-fueled plants that are inefficient and dirty as it manages the competing demands of cutting greenhouse gas emissions while stepping up use of the fuel after the Fukushima disaster, officials said Friday.

    Right, this coming from pretty much the same government that came up with the idea..(more money wasted)

    This is the government that will now push even harder for nuclear plants in the wake of not being able to have fossil fuel plants built.

    Abe will get what he wants one way or another.

    "Urges"? I suppose that is the best he can do. Well maybe he could get Obama on the line and "order" him to meet them?
