Going up in terms measured in the number on Yen after the Yen's purchasing power has been decreased by 25% is a pretty silly measurement to make. If you are not going to adjust for inflation then why even report on the numbers?

pulling down his pants is a degree of rape and making him eat dead animals I am sure is illegal, punching him is assault. Doesn't matter if they made him kill himself or not. They should be punished for all the things we know they did already.

It is all about the natural gas under the islands and has nothing to do with the islands and those islands are legally and historically japanese. 1895 for Takeshima and SF treaty of 1971

Dear Korea, you lost. Thus it's not your Island. Such is war. Had others not come to your aid all of Korea would still be Japanese. Should the US return Texas to Mexico? No. Why? Because Mexico lost the war twice.

"North Korea" code for China?
North Korea can't make a rocket, is parading fake weapons, and is starving to death and is nearly completely dark at night. They are not and never have been the real threat.

Japan pays for 70% of the cost for the US to be there so an increase in defense spending would not be needed if the US left. The Japanese could replace them and not spend anymore than they do already.

Yes they are terrorist its not like acts of violence are sudenly not terrorism just because you agree with their cause. I can understand perfectly why people would want to attack the US after all the horible things it doesdo others but its still terrorism. And its still imperialism on the other side. As for the granolas on the sea shaepard, I wouldn't care if they were left to swim with the whales. They do for real environmentalist what Christian fanatics do for Christianity. They're worse than PETA and that's hard to top. they turn more people of than on to their cause and they are acting violently over an issue they don't know much about, for example they have attacked scientific vessles because they thought they were whaling. Here is the deal, Whaling is legal, so deal with it. Sea Shapard shuold be treated as pirates with a mark of reprisal and tosed ina japanese Jail to eat fish heads and whale meat.

it is still based on a novel, and i wonder if it shows the 30 million people or so who starved to death as a result of China's own government or the mass rape and sex slavery that goes on TODAY in China not tto mention the slavery and house demolitions.

I hate fancy pants places because the portions are so small I have to eat before i go or right after yet I waste all this money and then still eat cereal at home because im hungry ever after going to dinner. If the customer is still hungry after your meal then your resteraunt sucks period. Stomach is just as important as the tongue in ranking food.
Give me American, or Mexican or Americanized Chinese food. I dont care what food snobs say, noting beats a huge steak. Japanese food in general sucks. There are good things but it pretty much blows chunks in fact some of it looks like blown chunks. I think there are some overly socialize people who feel the need to to ooh and ahhh over crap food as a means of proving to themselves and their peers that they are "cultural" and if you dont like eating fish eyes your just not as refined as they are or even prejudice, it couldn't possibly be because they taste like shit. Thats why McDs is in over 100 countries and fanysnobs will never be. They run on hype not customer satifaction.

The US is such a baby cutting funding because of Israeli interest in Washington. Israel has been kick out of and suspended from UNESCO twice over violations. But of course the country building racial colonies called settlements into palestinain lands after bulldozing down any homes or farmlands that were in the way gets the full support of the US government because AIPAC openly lobbies the congress to do its bidding. Israel wonders why people fire rockets at them, gee probably its because of the ongoing brutal military occupation and ethnic cleansing sponsored by the Israeli state, just a guess.

Couldnt this statistic be jarred because of the government's new program granting money to all families with new children as a means of boosting the birthrate? Any family with a young child, even if both parents have jobs, is recieving a small amount of welfare. I think its 13000yen a month or something but it is spaced out so that every three months they get a lump sum. That counts as welfare and would explain why unenployment figures stagnate but welfare stats have spiked. You have to be careful of statistics, people love to use them to lie. Thats not to say 2008's bubble in the US has not been a problem but lets be acurate here. I'd like to know if those figures were excluded or not or any other hidden figures that dont exactly translate to unemployed.
