So I guess it went like this: Sir, we need to improve our image with young girls.... we've had too many officers molesting them and they complain. We need to improve our image so they wont mind when we molest them! I know... lets create a cool, kako ii, image of a young officer... one they could fantasize about. Great idea... they'll be molesting us!

Amazing... the events of 9/11 is what mainly led to a massive increase by the NSA. Not the USA still holding a grudge against Japan. The idea that the Japanese language is too difficult to monitor is beyond ignorant. Too many people gauge the capabilities of others based upon their own.

If you do not think that, even though Japanese is a difficult language, the USA is not at least monitoring communications in and out of Japan or any other country for that matter, then you are naïve.

Of course the U.S. is spying on anything and everything that is transmitted from one place to another. They are keying in on certain words and searches. They're not going to out you on anything other than planning a terrorist attack. This is about numbers and data crunching. Only the items that come up with red flags are actually read by a human. The human then decides if it needs to be raised to the next level. It does not bother me in the least that they are watching.

Y100 to the Dollar is not weak enough for Japan to prosper. The Yen would need to weaken to at least Y150 to give domestic Japanese industry any chance of meaningful growth.

Every time Abe does this I'm sure Toyota, Nissan, and Honda must cringe. More disappointing sales in China. The days when corporate Japan and the Government worked together are over. Pretty soon you'll start seeing Japanese companies move their Headquarters outside of Japan. JAL is suing the Government of slot allocations at Haneda.

Toyota's CEO, Akio Toyoda, was lamenting the recent trend where young Japanese men don't want to spend money on cars. I think Mr. Toyoda might put this picture in his head. It is Golden Week 1991. Dad has packed Mom and his two children in their new Luxury Toyota Sedan and are planning on a nice leisurely ride from Tokyo up to Nasu. They pull out of their driveway and get on the main road only to have it already bumper to bumper traffic. Not 5 minutes after getting into the car they're stuck in traffic. That must have drove the kids crazy too. They probably only have bad memories of sitting in traffic. They probably told themselves that when they get older they will not be as stupid as their parents. And guess what.... they're not... they're not falling for it.

Japan is actually a CEO's dream. So many things are broken.... the only way to go is up. As everybody already knows, the Japanese are fantastic in the Factory but everything after that is stuck in the 1950's.

I've always said that the South Korean's would "cut off their nose to spite their face". They're just extremely emotional and you cannot count on them to be rational because of that.

Japan's export capabilities really have not "waned" at all.... the problem is that S. Korea, Taiwan, and China are all now capable of competing with Japan. Also, Japan was the king of making electronic products that required moving parts back in the 80's and 90's.... most electronic components no longer require those moving parts any longer. Even the DVD and BluRay will be a thing of the past in just a short time. I stopped buying DVD's about 3 years ago when it became easier to download movies and such.

I went through school in the USA in the 60's and 70's, and never once saw a teacher strike a student. I'd like to see a Japanese website or newspaper do a poll if Japanese kids often saw corporal punishment or none at all.
