That son of a bitch seems to have some kind of guts, doesn’t he? He has succeeded in the ejection. No, I am not talking about his ejaculation. He has succeeded in it several months ago, right? It should be quite tough to be the dictator. He has to fight everyone of the nations and that includes military force.
Military has its own hierarchy and always fighting to get higher. In such country like N. Korea success is the must. One has to watch his back all the time. I don’t think I can stand for that. Well, that’s why I settle for measly pension income today.
You fight with yourself first. You have to persuade yourself that you need to take that kind of cruel action against the enemies but has same nationality. That’s sad. The thing is if you can keep doing it all the time. One mishap can ruin your whole life.
If I were him, I’d have escaped somewhere out of the country. I might have settled in a little island in the Mediterranean sea. No, I am old enough to avoid young ladies. I don’t think I can take their weight. Right, her height included.
There is the Communist party in Japan. Can you believe it? Thing is that they have 9 seats in lower house and 6 seats in upper house. They keep saying things nothing to do with Communism. We all know that the communism was the failure. Soviet Union had proved it. And China is going to prove that again within several years.
What would happen if China lose control over their military? It should be terrifying. China has been trying to decrease their nations. And enforced to have one child only for a couple. So, most of the nation has been born alone in a family. There’s no way but to be selfish, right? Parents give everything they can.
If they want something they go for it. They never try to grow anything at all. I mean “they” is the nations of China. North Korea is worse. There is only one family that is allowed to be affluent. On the other hand, in China, there is only one party that is allowed to be rich. And the nation has realized that riches are only possible for the Communist party members.
On the other hand, in North Korea, most of the nations are in famine. It is the situation of live or die. How could he afford to shoot such toy into the ocean? Sad, nations have been tamed. The military is the only hope to turn the government over. I am crossing my finger for that.
Summer is going to be over. It’s been hot! I had to bear 35-37 Celsius daily for 22 days in a row. Guy who stars in weather forecast had kept saying that there are three high atmospheric pressures piled right up over the land of Japan. That makes impossible to move any one of them.
Besides, I live in an apartment of 25 stories built 3 decades ago. It’s located pretty close to train station. Which is pretty nice if you are commuting with train. It takes me 3 minutes flat from closing my apartment door to be on platform. Problem is that I have retired.
Now, my apartment is noisy, hot and unbearable place during summer. Noisy, because I cannot keep windows closed. The air conditioner cannot be left on 24 hours, 7days a week. It costs to much. Besides, I love sitting in the shades of trees and feeling breeze passing by.
Noisy, yes. I have to keep open window and I am pretty close to station and 6 sets of railroads connecting Tokyo and Osaka. Luckily bullet train is not in them.
In the middle of night, unable to sleep, and feeling uncomfortable with sicking pain due sciatica, I
try to find the reason why I was born, every once in a while.
I remembered that I was pretty eager to get chicks. I have married twice. The first one left me, the second one stick with me. I had girl friends from time to time during my marriage.
Thing was that I was able to afford.
Have I done anything good to this society? I don’t think so. How has the society changed, then?
Right, this should be the theme that we need to talk. The living environment has been improved a lot. But if I had known that this would be the result, unbearable hot summer, I would have moved to an island in the ocean a few decades age. I do not call this the improvement.
I’d rather enjoy summer breeze passing through field where we grow rice, vegetables and some chicken to enjoy luxury of eating eggs. Yes, eggs were luxury for factory workers 60 years ago.
In thinking of agriculture, I believe there are the way to go along with it instead of investing everything in to industrialization.
I cannot recall its title though, Robert Heinlein wrote a book on this theme. It was possible for us as well. Only if our science has tuned in bio more instead of material. If you start to have or acquire things, you feel you want more. For bio, think of growing flowers. If you wish to have larger flower, you won’t wish to have many of them. You’d rather give neighbors your seeds and tell them to grow it and enjoy every bit of them.
We would have required to have some industrial power to cultivate or water our growing. But it should be in limited scale. Yes, we’d better have some transportation means. But what if we can satisfy every needs locally, we won’t need to have it in large scale.
We would have set up main railway that runs with bean oil. There may be stations along the line though, they are not for commuting but to transport the surplus.
Oh, yes, building dams and embankment requires lots of investment. But tell you the truth, I have been living the area where I was born for over 60 years. Does any of those construction work change our life?I don’t think so. Yes, I don’t hear flooding as used to. I don’t hear water shortage as used to.
But we have got nuclear plant and their waste that will stay forever, if compared with human life. Which is better?
If I have been living in the field where I was born and could enjoy breeze and smell of soil in the shade, I’d weigh it a few hundreds, well no! a few thousands times more than what we got now.
Yes, we have lost our mind and feeling of family and the real human relationship as so called civilization evolves. And, well, it’s no meaning to regret past though. . . . .
Once upon a time, there was a person called scattered brain. He was called that because he jumped on the conclusion too easily. Pity was that he was elected to be a president of a country.
Hey can you imagine what that may mean? There may be a war tomorrow because of his careless talk. There may be street fight with the police if his supporters stumble on stone. Now he is facing with end of his term. Problem is that he’s been prosecuted by bribery. Yes, he grabbed a sum of money just being a president of the country. The sum wasn’t that big. It fits his size. I mean his mental size. Right, he cannot think large if it’s the matter is not of his paying but accepting money. Funny, huh?
He claimed that he rebuilt economy of his country. But the country were hit by severe currency devaluation. Yes, as its result, the export has jumped. But what does that mean to nations? they have to pay more to eat right.
Now his term is closing soon. He has to do something to impress nation so that he won’t be prosecuted any more. If you look back what had happened to his predecessors, you’d know why he has to hurry.
The very previous president had committed suicide to avoid further prosecution upon his bribery during his term.
The president two generations ago were awarded Nobel prize. But there persisted a doubt that the achievement was the result of bribery from a largest corporation. The corporation had been assured some kind of special deal with a neighboring country of dictatorship.
Then four generations ago, the term was from 1988 to 1993. He was prosecuted bribery as well. He pick pocketed for his family and was sent to jail as his term expired. And his era was the last era that government worked well with their military force. That was mere 20 years ago. Yes, this country is still in infancy of their democracy.
No wonder the current president has to take some impressive action to secure his economic life. Yes, that is South Korea and the name of current president is Lee Myung-bak who crushed the sensible spot of Japanese people with his foot just to look eyes of his nation away from him.
According to New York Times, SEOUL, South Korea — The North Korean leader Kim Jong-un called for building a “prosperous country” in a major policy guideline published on Friday, a day after he told a visiting Chinese delegation that he was focused on “developing the economy and improving people’s livelihoods.”
OK, that’s great. But mind you. How are you going to build something without any money to spare for the purpose? Right! He may be refrain from spending on military! That could have been his reasoning to cut throat of ex military general Yong Ho Li.
NY Times further stated “North Korea’s poverty is so deep, and its economy so dysfunctional, that two-thirds of its people are estimated to be suffering from chronic food shortages. ” Yeah, yeah, yeah. I like the phrase “poverty is so deep”. It should be as deep as your mother’s love, Mr. Kim Jong Un.
Now he’s go married. Well, so said TVs here. Why doe he have to marry? He’s only 29 years old. What were you thinking at your age of 29? You must have wished to **** as many as possible, right? Being dictator, he can do so. But north’s government announced the marriage. Means? People around dictator would have feeling that the dictator could no afford any of his flirtation.
Means, they are to try the hardest way. Building up a country with truly strong economic power. That seems to be the only logical objective for them as well, I assume. One thing is that China seems to building true economic power of their own while keeping the One party dictatorship, communists.
Now I have to pay attention on current China occurrences. There are numerous uprisings throughout country that has nothing to do with politics on the surface. They yell at a certain objective. But ends up like riot against their own government.
No matter how you suppress your nation, or try to do so, if there are good means of connecting people, you have to give in to them at the end. Otherwise you cannot build anything at all because of the cost to peek into people’s daily life.
Now the point is if this young fool Kim Jong Un were equipped with the intelligence to feel the downturn of Chinese Communist Party Dictatorship. Ｉｔ is OK, if Jong Un imagine one party dictatorship as a transitional step to true People’s Republic. But if he thinks that as his objective, well, an objective that to be realized at his age of 40, 10 years from now, I think it’s viable.
No, no. There’s no way his getting out of his own regime 10 years from now. As he sees realizing his images, he will be try to hold power harder for his getting old. So? there won’t to be real People’s Republic but the destruction of dictatorship within some 20 years.
Thing is, I won’t be able to see or hear about it. ’cause I’m 70 and since I have prostate cancer for 15 years, I won’t be able to live till the date. Well, for that matter, the current Olympic games will be the last Olympics of my life. Sad. . . . . .
That old fox Ozawa parted from Democrats last week. He took the action right after the lower house enacted the bill of consumption tax percentage to be 10%. He voted against it. His point is that the Democrats has been elected by promoting their manifest that clearly has stated that Democrats would not raise the tax. Democrats promised to squeeze necessary fund from existing government and its related agencies.
Ozawa said this though, we, nation, have not seen him proposing any alternative measure against party executives. He voted against the party executives and posed to keep the three years old manifest to appeal his political view. (This is for next election expected soon) He parted from the party with 52 members who agreed with his policy. Those members were seemed have been forced to sign right in front of Ozawa, and had signed it a week before. It declares a member would leave the party.
A laughable is that two members who have signed the document expressed their disagreement to leave the party. Yes, they signed the document of above a week before. They are so-called “elected”. Yes, they are not children as far as the law is concerned. Here’s what they said to TV interview “I took that I would be told before he’d bring the document to the party executives” Hey, is this what you expect from persons who are adults?
Then another 2 members that signed the document said “No” next day. Those disagreement decreased the number to be 48. Ozawa definitely has wished to have more than 50. I won’t tell the number game here though, everybody can understand that he requires to have over 50 money wise as well as the negotiating power to build joint force in current political scene. But alas, against his wish, he only got 48 came along with him to declare a new political party. The announcement of this new party is expected on 11th, TV of this morning said so.
Now, Japanese government faces so many problems to be solved sooner. Here is a list;
1. If we should keep going with the nuclear poｗer plants. (My opinion) I don’t want to
2. We got to have equal voting power when we vote. The supreme court ruled that the value of vote is not equal last year.
3. We go to chase Chinese out from Senkaku islands
4. We must chase Russians out from those northern islands
5. We must cut down the government spending. Otherwise our grand sons will face the bankruptcy of this country.
6. We must build another set of defense tactics that may set Okinawa free from the defense bases.
Yes, we are facing the period of restructuring of this country. It has passed over 60 years since the end of WW2. We celebrate 60th birthday as our start of new life cycle. We are seven years late now.
Coo Coo Hatoyama had voted against the party executives. You may wonder why he isn’t the member of the executives? Besides, he was the prime minister a few years back. Well, he announced his resignation from political world as he resigned from the prime minister. But somehow, he took back this announcement and started to act as was a few days later.
Now in regard to this consumption tax raise, he voted against it. The party charged him the stoppage of party membership for 6 months. Alas, here came a news that his mother presented him 4,200,000,000JPY as the gift before her death. Yes, she is the legal heir of Bridge stone Tyre family. Yes, she has been leading insanely rich life and giving 10 million JPY every month to him and his younger bother, both politician.
See? nobody sorry for him. He’s rich, right? Now he seems to part the party as well to form a new political party. I sincerely doubt it though. I think he’d be taken into Ozawa’s new party. Because he doesn’t have opinion of himself or he can not form or he doesn’t feel the need to have any opinion at all. Yes, that’s the basic mind set of a son from rich family unless he has set lifetime objective. After all why a man works? To earn money and lead beautiful life of his own, right? He has money, lots of it.
OK, now who did announce those penalties? Our current prime minister is Mr. Noda, the fool. He is fool because he didn’t announce any penalty before that fox Ozawa clearly stated his departure from the Democrats. Democrats was holding majority at lower house but was not at upper house. The majority was kept by 38 votes. If those 38 votes declare leaving Democrats, Noda is in danger. He had to arrange negotiation for every proposal and is time consuming. If he had stated what to expect if anyone act against the party executives, the number that left along with Ozawa could have been less.
Now, ruling party Democrats is on hold right as Prime minister Noda has proven the luck of his leadership. Ozawa is on hold because he has to build this new party from scratch. For the members he pulled out of Democrats are newbie in political world. This is their first time in the house. If he wish to keep those people under his wing throughout the next election, he has to set up necessary tactic all by himself. That can be too tough for the old man of my age, 69. CooCoo Hatoyama is on hold because he cannot think of anything by himself.
Then who are there jumping around in joy? I’m pretty sure, the bureaucrats are!
Good day eveyrone.

Egypt has been taken over by Islams. But the armed force took a hold of government money and the power to kill. I am not familiar with either Egypt or the Islams, but find it queer. The elected Mr. Mohamed Morsy has been chosen by the nation, by the way. There should be lots of people who believes in other religion, right? If he loudly expresses his faith to his religion, it may terrifies people who believes in other religion, don’t you think?
Here’s that makes things complicated. If Mr Morsy didn’t express his faith to his religion, he was not able to accumulate that number of votes. Is there possibility that he oppresses people who believes in other religion than Islam? But you have to realize that that kind of administration would easily make enemies politically as well as religiously and that has been proven by history. What happens is that the mutual hate between religions. OK, we have to realize that Mr. Morsy has not earned 100% vote.
We, Japanese has been educated to separate administration, legislation, and judicature. It is called “separation of power”. We’ve been told that the administration should be under the separation of church and state.
It is said that Mr. Morsy represents Islams. Thing is that there are number of factions in Islam. So, basically the religion has no different from politics. Or should I put it as that the human beings can not live without faction?
That concludes that religion is the being that makes world more complicated. It is good to debate. It makes clear what the other people thinks. What seems to be the reason of debate? Isn’t it to find the way that mutually agreeable?
Well, I am deep in doubt if we need religion. As a matter of social customs, I agree with celebrating weddings, expressing sorrow for a death, or celebrating a birth of child in religious way. It may be difficult to celebrate things without some kind of extreme existence. Other than that, do we need it?
You pray for God. Funny is that you pray for yourself, your family, your friends or cosmos but never do so for other people specific, right? Do you pray for Egyptians? What for then? You are not interested in that much of Egypt.
For me, religion is a tool for people who can not fight direct to her/his surroundings. It may be a common path to discuss, debate, fight or beat each other. Thing is that you have been trained to, or educated, or raised to do so. Or religion is a tool to bind people that has been raised, educated or trained separately. And is a good tool to train, educate, tame or make people obedient to a single dogma that produce good for specific people behind the scene.
What seems to be a reason why I don’t believe in any religion, you may ask. Here is my answer. There are so many fight over tiny tits-bits that can be swallowed otherwise. Don’t you agree?
It seems that Japan has been failing to educate people properly for over 50 years. Let’s look back 50 years from today, May 15th, 2012. The year was 1962. I was 19 years old. I was freshman after one year of preparation of entrance exam for my favorite college in Tokyo.
Right, it was the era when everybody was saying that we are taking off of the ground for the prosperous economic life. Sales of passenger cars were started to picking up. Yes, it’s like several years back in China.
And I felt that Japan was some 40 years behind America when I had stayed in New York starting in 1967. Right, history does repeat. There will be lots of coutnries line up behind China to earn economic power that will make the nations possible to own passenger cars of their own.
As we gain economic power, it seems that we lose somthing that is related to human nature deep inside. An example: As we gain economic power to purchase TV set, we have lost the precious hour and minutes that made us possible to communicate each other in a family.
As the human beings are the emotional animal, it takes sometime to talk about themselves in their family. TV brought us the hours and minutes to argue what to watch during or after supper. What does that mean? We have lost the precious hour and minutes to know each other. Instead, we became much familirize ourselves with celebrities who appear TV.
Hey, can you tell me the birthday of your cousin? As those noises that were brought in by TV, we had lost contact with our own self as well. At the same time it was the era to start neglecting what we had accumulated during the samurai era, the Japanese culture.
One big thing, I believe, was the mental strength that had been polished and brought up under samurai’s care. Yes, we know samurai was nothing but the worrier in essence and had lost its value of existence over the peace of the nation started in 1610. The fixed social status eventually broke up in 1860es and the new political system had started.
Now 1960es, one hundred years later from the political turn over, the society had started to pursue the economic value. If you look at China from this view point, when could be defied the political turning point? Could that be 100 years ago from 2000+? I mean, could that be around 1900?
Cricut Imagine offers endless
possibilities; the rest is up to you.
Mixed views, quite interesting
I checked and found that we can say that. Thanks to the Internet. The old China, the feudalism in China had turn over a little before 1900. The Current China republic has established in 1911 as the outcome of Xinhai Revolution and The Qing Dynasty fell with Sun Yat-sen. So, the situation seems to be quite similar.
Well, the education, I was talking about. I was surfing and found a lecture. I cannot recall who has said this. “How can we educate kids who will be leading active life 30 years later from the date of our death? We can not predict that far at all. Then the only thing that we can is to train them so that they can think and decide all by themselves. Only common essence could be the creativity”. I cannot quote exactly how this person said this. But this is my understanding.
Can we be this modesty? I assure you. It’s much easier to condemn kids without a hearing. You can push your point of view all the way.
Besides, we had so many reforms of educational system and the curriculum. There’s alway some kind of inclination to some direction. OK, OK, if you say you haven’t done any of inclination, that’s your opinion on your work, right? How can you be so sure about what you have done?

How were you doing at the age of 29? Well, I was chasing another girl, called up old friends from
high school and went out to pick girls, was playing majan most of the evening after office hours. I
had married at the age of 23. Right! that was the 6th year of marriage.
Parents were healthy and active and earning good .So, I have nothing to worry. Yes, I was commuting to Tokyo as a sales person to my father’s company.
I tell the truth. I was not thinking about anything about future. I am the eldest of the children and I
have took it for granted that I would be succeeding my father’s position. Which means nice chunk of earnings month after month after month after. . . . . Well, there was no other plan than that.
So? Have you watched the broadcast from North Korea? Have you noticed that that sun-of-a-
bitch is fatty? I am saying about Kim Jong-un. He is said to be 29. The third dictatorship of the coutnry.
Korea has analyzed conversations between those nearby standing military personnels and Jong-un. The fatty had kept saying those foolish things. On the other hands, those olds, military personnels covered up their mouth so that no one knows what had said.
TV commentator stated that Jung-un had disentagled from the unanious pressure from preceeding speech to the North Korean people, who were attending the military parade that was celebrating 100th birthday of the country. That is why he started conversation with people around him on the stand.
That is understandable. I smelled signes that he is a nomal person and is not determined to lead the country. His personality is not up to the job assigned. Besides, he has not tasted the real meaning of dictatorship as yet. Right, he may be killed once he’ll fail to motivate nation properly respect him and his family.
He was sent to Swiss. He has experienced and felt the touch of freedom. He is and was free from anything regardless where he was. Which makes him difficult to realize how his country is built. Don’t you think?
Being the dictatorship and do not know the real value and peril of it, what can Kim Jong-un, the fatty do? You’ll act naturally. right? As I have said, being 29 years old, he requires the opposite sex, sex partner or partners. Now you realize what I have said one of the blog posts several month ago.
Sooner or later China will send beaty so that he will dissolute indulgence in sensual pleasure. Jong-un then start neglecting his role and which induce the power struggle between the family as well as family and the military. Then China will bring him out of the country. This conspiracy will be carried out by China along with CIA, I presume. Then what? Then there will be power struggle in North Korea that only lead the country to final revolution. That should be nice.

Japanese government has agreed with exporting atomic power generator to Vietnum. Several Vietnamese operators-to-be have started to learn its control this month. Well, that’s nice.
The TV program showed an interview with a few of the residents within 10km radius of the atomic plant in Vietnum. He put it; “I had visited Fukushima that the tsunami hit last year. And had learned that there were so many people living close to the plant. That had told me that the plant should be safe.” Yes, he has learned that that very place has been hit hard by tsunami and the town he had visited had to be evacuated as the consequence. He said; “We can do nothing for Tsunami and the earthquake. So, there is no reason to worry about it. It coule be the intention of the God”
I have been watching the discussion on this issue. For one, I’ll be dead by the time when next severe earthquake hit Japan, well, hopefully. Otherwise I’ll be havng hard time. I have been lucky enough to avoid the worst outcome till now. So, there’s no reason that I get involved in any at the last stage of my life, right?. Yeah, that sounds pretty close what the Vietnumese has said.
During this past year, nobody seemed to have said what I have been expected to hear. That is the life of pre-atomic energy era. I was born in 1943. I had spend my enfant age in poor. Well that was the poverty that covered all over Japan. Wealth was exceptional. Even the most powerful politician was poor at that time. We’ve been defeated.
Yes, we had lots of electricity stoppage. Yes, we could not afford to have tasty juicy meat. Right, the oranges and apples were sour than sweet. But vegitable were fresh out from the field nearby. Nobody around had automobile of any kind. But we were happier than present. Why? We didn’t know what the luxury was. The luxury of having electoricity abundance. The luxury of driving and running much faster than running by ourselves. Watching TV to know what’s happening. But what does that mean?
Nobody says that we will stand the less electricity by cutting down the use of air conditioning, by walking further distance for shopping. We can set up home office that can eliminate the energy consumption on commuting. If that can be done, we can cut electricity for trains and spare it for homes.
We can set up small shops in a community and eliminate the large electricity consuming shopping mall. Yes, I am pretty well aware that there should be a certain economic scale to cut down the cost. Yes, I am pretty aware that those movement is against the capitalism, if ever happens.
Then, we have to revise the definition of capitalism. yes, I agree that capitalism has been the most effective motivational reason for better cost. It’s been proven so far. But now we may have to change it to the next theory.
Japan has started to decrease its population. Currently 32% of the population is occupied by age over 60. One third of the population is the senior. This does take effect on consumption pattern as you may guess. Car doesn’t sell as used to. In 2007, the number of birth started to be lower than the number of death. That means our poppulation had destined to decrease in 2007. Awful, isn’t it.
There are enough reason to cut down energ consumption. This age group discussion alone can contribute large part on this discussion, I assume. But alas! Nobody says that! It is the common sense that you have to give up one way to realize the other way. No politician says that. I know, everyone of the politicians, without exception, consider himself over the nation. Right, they think they can survive without the nations. Thye are fool, aren’t they.

You may feel sorry if you were younger than 40. But this is the reality you must be facing 20 years or 30 years later.
A lady or I’d better say woman who does not seem to have any objective of living, age 84 has decided to live in one of those public carehome in Niigata. Yes, she could be anyone living much longer than expected and cannot think of what to do next. Niigata is located facing the Sea of Japan that is the other side of the main island of Japan from Tokyo. They were struck by that natural disaster, the earthquake of last March 11th.
They are under the severe snow storm right now. They have been hit by heavy snow every few days and the snow accumulated to go over their windows of the first floor and reaching half way to the windows of second floor. She habitually fight with snow as she had been doing since her youth when there were family in that house.
She has been forced to remove snow from her roof every other day of past one month. Hey she is 84! She had lost her husband 6 years ago. No child to live with. There was no way to have help because the snow blocks the passage to her area.
Can you imagine what her life have been? No, I’m not saying how she gets over the snow storm but her life itself. Let me repeat, she is 84, lost her husband, no child around, she lives alone in a house that had been hit by the eathquake last year and has not been fixed as yet to her satisfaction.
She may be buried by the weight of snow any minutes now. She does not want to leave the house that is packed with memories of her past, that she can be as she wish. But she has decided to leave it for she has been forced to accept that she can no longer fight with nature.
What she had been doing those past years of, let’s say after her age of 65? There are lots of similar stories have been revealed after the eathquake. Those stories would not have been come to the surface unless the eathquake had left them alone.
I am 69 on 12th this February. Right! I just had my birthday. Well, tell you the truth, nobody came to celebrate my birthday. No birthday gift, nor mail. Well yes, I got several message through my FaceBook.
How long am I to live? Nobody knows. Can I be 84 years old? I don’t know but I bet I won’t. Becasue of my prostate cancer, I won’t be able to live that long. Then how long? Do I realy wish to know that? I cannot tell. For the time being, I can read, type, listen and talk. But what then if I lose any of those ability?
I run anti aging site here and talking about the tips of living told by Ekken Kaibara who died at 1704 at his age of 84. He lived much longer than the average of the era. He tells us nice tips and hints to lead healthy life, but doesn’t tell us what we should be doing. Right, nobody tells you what you should be doing as you age. That is the question and there are numerous answers but won’t fit any unless you devise one for yourself by yourself.
