    YEP. \

    Low Dose CT scan (radiation) has been used too much for no reason. Ultrasound and MRI need to be tried first.

    Further more, Mr. Globewatcher, commenting on the obvious is not an assault on good American social etiquette.

    Understood.. You could have rephrased it better to make a point next time.

    I always liked him. There are many excellent cancer hospitals in Toronto. My prayer and thoughts are with him in time of critical moment.

    Thank you for the information. Sounds like Tony Abbott is a down to the earth politician. I like that.

    Droll Quarry and Neneswsw, Those are not nice things to say.

    Good American social etiquette is: if you have nothing good say, do not say anything.", so I assume they are not Americans.

    @global, I sincerely hope you don't plan to rely on SSI and Medicare for your future well-being. That's a path to destitution. Of course, governments love to keep the people dependent on handouts and inevitable rationing. Yes, that's what socialism/marxism(pure socialism) promises: shared, assured poverty and misery. Instead, develop your own income streams in tax-friendly jurisdictions.

    No need to worry. I am doing very well. I live in Japan for 3 months, live in CA and Colorado for the rest enjoying my retirement like a liberal son.

    "Oh, I see you belong to one of these top 10% who do not want to give up one dime for others for equity."

    Nope, not top 10‰(as Strangleland claims to be), but what I have I have earned honestly through my own endeavors, not from the loot robbed of others.

    And many of my friends-once proclaimed to be millionaires are totally broke. They once lived in wine and roses. A humble man like me, once did not have too much, is retiring comfortably today. What's an irony!! Thanks to SSI, Medicare.

    Sen. Sanders from VT (independent) was there too showing his interest running for 2016 campaign. He is a serious contender. I like his voting records.

    Why can't we do this in the United States? Would make for good theatrics if nothing else.

    Too many crazy mentally unstable people here in US. When Obama was here visiting our community center, I saw three secret AK14 snipers on top of building aiming at us.

    Well Secretary Kerry, ISIS has nearly tripled in size according to the latest estimates. It seems that Obama's nonsensical strategy has failed in record time.

    Why do you blame Obama again? The rise of ISIS has been well predicted since Sadaam (Sunni) Hussein was executed. Did you know that Obama inherited this from W? Obama has a strategy: DDST

    Pay everything with more taxes is the typical marxist/socialist MO. No, thanks! Or go to Cuba where you'll fit in.

    Do you want to eliminate SSI, Medicare, Medicaid from US Middle Income people? Do you want to eliminate Kokumin Nenkin, Kosei Nenkin, National Health Care and Long Term Care programs from Japanese Middle Income people?

    Oh, I see you belong to one of these top 10% who do not want to give up one dime for others for equity. Greed and selfishness are more important to some who end up with nothing. . We are teaching our children that sharing is receiving in my culture. That's how it is written, thy will be done.

    There's a proverb, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink."

    Global, how do you propose to pay for the childcare? More taxes, of course! Typical socialist constantly urging more wealth redistribution, as long as it's not your wealth and you get a chunk of the loot.

    StrangerlandSep. 14, 2014 - 09:44AM JST

    Global, how do you propose to pay for the childcare? More taxes, of course!

    Exactly

    Birth rate of Japan has been declining while seniors are retiring and living longer. In macro economics sense, Japanese children with higher education and skill eventually become an asset in society and support your Kosei Nenkin.

    StrangerlandSep. 14, 2014 - 10:35AM JST

    But I know you can afford childcare cost when you and your husband have good jobs.

    The problem in Japan is that if the woman wants to take a couple of years off to raise the kids when they are young, even if she is willing to put the kids in childcare when they are older, it's hard for them to get 'good jobs'.

    For men and women, good jobs come with higher education in skill based global economy. The key word is a GLOBAL ECONOMY.

    Well said by IMF.

    So far, Japan is not maximizing economic potential for growth. Here is an opportunity for Japan and Japanese women. Second, abolish mandatory retirement age at 65, so that the labor market will expand as well. This is a positive solution to combat in aging demography of Japan before relying on immigrant workers.

    You may want to look at daycare model from French and Scandinavian countries. This is a positive economic reform #101. Hope you think about this very seriously.

    Anyone who takes pride in devaluing people's savings and salaries is an idiot, and that includes Kuroda.

    Right on.

    Furthermore, the gap between the Rich and the Poor is widening in Japan. Japan needs to overhaul economic fundamentals for equality.

    2% inflation target

    As I have been saying on JT over and over, it will NOT be attainable unless you are willing to do a structural economic reform and improve efficiency in the Public Spending.

    You need to cut high paying unproductive politicians and high paying bureaucrats first. You need to make a Public Sector smaller and efficient.
