Posted in: In Tokyo, some drink on despite gov't request for bars to close at 8 p.m. See in context

It is only a REQUEST to close and a REQUEST to not drink at bars after 8;00pm.

I wonder, was Kensuke Hikiji, a company employee from Tokyo’s Akishima City drunk at the time? Not that it matters. However this is the excuse that is used often to explain their illegal activities.

Is there a State Of Emergency in Tokyo now? I don't see any changes. Only a lot of businesses out of business in Roppongi and other areas as well. But people are just doing what ever they want. No changes at all.

Posted in: Ghosn hid scale of Nissan salary, fearing dismissal from Renault, Tokyo court told See in context

So, yesterday on JT there was a story that it was Nissan who hid the money. Now, today, this story said that Ghosn hid the money. I think its Nissan who was responsible to acknowledge the money flow from the beginning of Ghosn's employment. Funny how Nissan is the employer and had no idea what was going on. I side with Ghosn. He was set up for sure.

Posted in: Ex-Nissan exec says automaker sought to hide Ghosn's pay See in context

Mark my words: This story will soon be buried. This story will soon be a thing of the past. Everyone will only remember how the Gaijin was guilty. The fresh news will be hidden very soon. You will not be able to follow this story in Japan because Japan, Inc. understands that this makes things look very bad for them now. But, who will remember?

We all need to be patient. These are unprecedented times. My advice is to go jogging. Go mountain climbing. Get exercise as much as you can. Start a new business. Think big. Domestic violence is never the answer.

Posted in: Democrats prepare 'incitement of insurrection' charge against Trump See in context

" Some Republicans warn against impeachment. “They’re not only going to create bad feelings in Congress, they’re really going to create tremendously bad feelings in America,” said Rep Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey."

I am very sure we are way past the bad feeling phase.

They need to be paid and a sincere apology is required until the South Koreans are happy. The ball is in their court. No Japan's.

Posted in: Trump urges healing and pledges smooth transition of power See in context

The disturbing thing is, we all followed him and experienced his words and actions and understand what he has done. However, he thinks we believe what he says after the fact. I will continue to watch him and his downfall. He is a monster. A manipulator. And an evil thing in the White House. We love you too trump.

As an American living in Japan for 20 years, I can say I love America, however Trump clearly wants to be a dicktator [ Spelling? ] and is taking America down with him.

Posted in: Gov't eyes declaring state of emergency on Thursday for about a month See in context

I think that as individuals, we all need to look inwards and make decisions for ourselves. I think I need to buy a bike instead of taking the train. I think I need to stay away from crowds of people at the bars and restaurants, I think I need to eat fruits and vegetables more often, I think I need to wash my hands 10 times a day, I think... is more important that what these " politicians " think. The problem is, they factor in how they can stay in power. How they can make big business profit, How they can come out looking good so they can get voted into office again. How YOU think is more important people. Think for yourself. You have a brain, right?

Trump is looking at the big picture. He understands that he lost. He is just looking to start a new political party. He wants a reality TV show. He wants and is getting followers. He is a master at me, me, me. He never thinks of what is in the best interest of America. Only of himself.
