Ichigen koji (31)

一言居士
– A person who has something to say about everything

“All of Japan is on the wrong course. The mass media has joined with the Finance Ministry to chant, ‘There are no revenue sources’, ‘Raise the consumption tax’, and ‘Ditch the manifesto, including the child allowance’. They have a lot to answer for. I’ve told newspaper reporters that they should go to the National Diet Library and read what sort of articles their predecessors wrote before the war when Japan started down the road to war.”

– Kamei Shizuka, head of the People’s New Party, the junior coalition partner in government

    “…That’s why we need to re-nationalize the post office and prevent married couples from having different last names!”

    Is that guy serious?

    Ah yes, raising taxes in times of depression…it worked so well for Argentina 1990’s didn’t it, but this time we’ll steal underwear first. Then we can tax the profits of that!
