I BELIVE Abe has gotten it all wrong. The person that's really damaging Japan's image is Abe himself. All of his useless tactics and foolish decisions are making Japan to look like a nation that can never be trusted at all. If you ask me, I think it's time for him to step down and let someone else who can do a better job then he is doing take his place.

Typical Japanese way of doing things...
They all do something bad, then they make a stupid excuse saying they did what they did because of something that has taken control of their minds. What a lame excuse!!,
He should have been fined for at least $3000. And made to replace the camera that he stole with a brand new camera.

By raising taxes to 10% will not do anything at all to stimulate the economy. Is Abe out of his mind or what!!
If the politicians really wish to create a better Japan for everyone and get the economy back on track, why don't they concentrate on much better ways to stimulate the economy...
Here are a few examples that I think might work...
Stop wasting tax payers money on useless meetings that tend to go no where and or make no progress at all.
Raise the tobacco prices in Japan to at least 1000 yen per pack and use that money to improve society as a whole.
Raise the taxes on pachinko parlors all over Japan and use that money to educate the youth of today in much better things than just concentrating on passing a whole lot of useless tests.
Drop the pay of all politicians in Japan and get rid of their yearly bonuses for at least the next 10 to 15 years.
Put a tax on every religious group all across Japan and use that money to make drastic improvements to the everyday lives if everyone in Japan.
I'm sure if they implement these metthods, it will do a whole lot more than just raising the consumption tax to 10%.
Oh, one more thing that they could also to is to stop giving tax payers money away to nations that are in a war. Japan needs the money more than the nations that continually are waging wars agains each other.

What is going on with Japan these days! 20 years ago Japan was a much better place than it is now. Seems like as the years go by, more and more Japanese people are turning into a bunch of werid idiots.

Fukushima is all done!!! From the mountain to the ocean, there is radiation all over the place. And who do we have to blame for this.... All of the Japanese bureaucrats and governmental people thats lies all day long.
And this statement is not off topic, so if it is removed, then you do not understand what the true meaning of off topic is!!!!

Abe pushes for his tax raise idea while not opting out on his yearly bonus checks. He talks about trying to balance the economy while giving away millions of yen to other countries. Abe is a total hypocrite!! He can never be trusted in what he says anyone. All of his talking and excuses for his foolish and stupid ideas are not doing anything at all to help anyone in Japan but only himself and his rich colleagues.

Japan is so very worried about North Korea`s nuclear missiles, while Japan is concentrating on radiating everyone in Japan with all of the 50 reactors that they have surrounding the whole country. When will the Japanese politicians stop thinking with their butts!!!

Yah, a tax hike so the government of Japan can collect more money to give away to other countries while watching their own citizens suffer on a daily basis!!
Im sure after April 1, there will be a whole lot more people not wanting to shop much anymore. Heck, they will all probably stop spending much money on useless eikaiwas that don`t do much at all but look for ways to take your money while not teaching you much at all.

How can Mr. Abe expect anything good to come out of this meeting when he is as stubborn as a dead dieng cow!
Here we have Abe trying to speak in Korean to Korean President Park Geun-Hye to impress her when he is unwilling to work with her in any way or form. Doesn't he understand that no matter what he does to try to impress Korean President Park Geun-Hye will not work at all in any way or form? In my opinion, no matter what you say, will not mean anything at all unless you back it up with a positive action. As of Abe, seems like he is a man of a lot of talking with very little of positive action.
I would be very surprised if anything good comes out of this meeting at all!!!

With the slump that Japan is in, Abe wants to give away more money!! What a smart move by Abe!! Raise taxes in Japan and use the money that is collected to give away to other countries!!
WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT ARE IN JAPAN THAT ARE SUFFERING ON A DAILY BASIS!!!!
Seems like the Japanese government doesn't give a darn. So sad.

Abe can sanction Russia all that he wants, but it will not work at all because Russia does not care at all. With majority of the people in Crimea wanting to be returned back to Russia, there is not much anyone can do to stop the process in any way or form.

All of these Japanese politicians talk about is safety nuclear power, but what about all of the people that was affected by their stupidity and mistakes from Fukushima? Nothing!! I hear nothing at all!! Japan should be focusing on how to improve their country and not how to destroy it.
