What?! More billions headed overseas, mainly for business opportunities for mega corporations? Where is all this money coming from, anyway?
How about keeping that money in Japan and helping people here who need it!? More and more people are suffering thanks to the partisan nature of Abenomics and basically useless tax increases. Does Abe really care about people in Japan, other than fat cats and political buddies of his? Sure doesn't really seem like it.

We have cable TV at home and basically have to pay the NHK fee as part of the cable package. NHK does have a number of worthwhile programs, though, even if the fee amount is a bit exorbitant.

There's more to look at than just carbs. All of FamilyMart's foods are quite high in sodium, however, higher than 7/11 and Lawson, just to name a couple others. (Assuming labels are truthful)

FWIW... "City" should be capitalized in the text and title. If not, a poor (i.e. potentially not clear) writing style that seems to be trendy in recent years, there could be confusion as to which city in Osaka (Prefecture) is meant. Capping it would make it clear from start.

Rather expected, actually, since these are exactly the kinds of folks Abenomics is meant to help, while casting the common (non-corporate) people aside.

"Have faith and believe"... I think this is what he's basically saying, to have all of us follow their "religion" of nuclear power, and throw common sense aside.
It really is a huge, huge gamble anytime this dangerous technology (in all its forms) is used, such that those eagerly employing it now profit now but really don't care about the future because they'll be long gone when all those coming after them are left with the mess and the hassle of managing it or cleaning it up (even with no accidents, there's the ever-present question of what to do with the waste, which no one has ever resolved).
The fact that nuclear power arose as an afterthought of the US's nuclear weapons program in the 1940s and '50s should also make us pause to reflect, especially now with some in the LDP being more vocal about what many have long known... the LDP's desire to have Japan build it's own nukes. The connection between nuclear power & weapons is intimate, at least using today's antiquated technology. Simply because some might disagree doesn't erase this fact.
Nature doesn't always follow human-made rules like the ones nuclear regulators swear by. Any rules trying to tame this kind of technology, this kind of energy, will always be inadequate.

Do these people pushing all these oddball flavors actually taste-test it themselves? Was any taste-test done at all?
huh? "pursue real salmon flavor fearlessly" ???
I really had no idea such a thing was that scary. (eyes rolling)
If I want real salmon flavor, I'll just eat real salmon, thank you.
And why eat it with plain ol' rice; plenty of candies made from rice out there. Make it ALL candy!

The public are being shafted time after time after time by Abe and his ilk, and all those who put money above health, safety and common sense. Will another Fukushima-scale disaster be enough to change their minds?
