"because ye know not the scriptures"

(Volcano Asama, 120 Km north of Tokyo)

Maybe You Are in a Christmas Mode as You are Blessed by the Lord...Oh, Holy Night, Silent Night...Yes We Are in a Christmas Mode as We are Blessed by the Lord...Ah, Holy Night, Silent Night...

It has been snowing heavily also in Japan this week. Even a coastal area on the Sea of Japan, just 100 miles north of Tokyo, was covered by a half-meter depth of snow over a night.

( )

For homeless people in Tokyo, New York, and other cities in the Northern Hemisphere, global cooling or a coming of the Little Ice Age is far worse than global warming.

The global warming is another form of the problem of poverty: the global gap between rich countries and poor countries.

(The U.S. strategy for the 21st century is to remain rich by tying up with new rich countries of the 21st century, such as China, India, Brazil, and South Africa, regardless of global warming or global cooling.)


The COP 15 Conference revealed something critical as the U.S. with China, India, Brazil, and South Africa lost respect from poor countries while European major nations and Russia were found to be useless.

"There is some anger among [many] ... developing nations. They say that this deal has been done essentially with the Americans, the Chinese, the South Africans and the Brazilians and the Indians and they have had no real input."

The world is now divided into three groups: Europe plus Russia losing global respect; the U.S. and other mega nations simply respecting one another; and others who respect Japan.

It is neither CO2 nor temperature measurement but the control of consumption and use of crude oil, coal, and natural gas that must be advertised to world citizens.

Big money being generated between the CO2 talk and the oil/coal/gas business must be distributed to poor countries who are facing poverty, starving, and other violence-related crises before worry about global warming.

Copenhagen indeed failed in presenting a forum for justice. Only Japan proposed a concrete plan with true intention to make monetary contribution.

"Yukio Hatoyama, the Japanese premier, who has offered nearly $20bn towards a global climate fund, said the summit would deliver a 'robust' if 'not necessarily perfect' statement on fighting global warming."


FACT 1. Poor Old Workers in America
In America, 4.1 million people at an age of 65 and older were active in the job market in 2001. Today, 6.6 million Americans 65 and older are active in the job market, mostly because they need money for their subsistence.

FACT 2. Poor Farmers and Factory Workers in China
There are more than 40 million poor people in China officially identified as being poor by the Chinese Government. However, Chinese ex-farmers working in factories also face bad conditions, since foreign companies, such as Wal-Mart Stores are requesting cost reduction more and more to Chinese makers.


FACT 3. Homelessness in Rich Countries
The number of homeless persons as reported in Wikipedia:
European Union: 3,000,000 (UN-HABITAT 2004)
- United Kingdom: 10,459 rough sleepers, 98,750 households in temporary accommodation

Canada: 150,000

Australia: In total, 99,900 people were homeless in 2001

United States: 671,888 sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons nationwide.
- Sheltered Homeless Persons during a One-Year Period, October 2006 to September 2007, that about 1,589,000 persons used an emergency shelter and/or transitional housing during the 12-month period, which is about 1 in every 200 persons in the United States was in a homeless facility in that time period.

Japan: 20,000-100,000 (some figures put it at 200,000-400,000)[103] Reports show that homelessness is on the rise in Japan since the mid-1990s.[104]

(Note: According to the Japanese Government, there were 18,564 homeless persons in Japan as of January 2007. The data in Wikipedia is apparently inaccurate and anti-Japanese. )

FACT 4. Refugees
According to Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, there are 42 million refugees worldwide in 2009.

Yet, roughly speaking two billion people in the world are living a rich or comfortable life; other two billion people are living a modest or humble life; and the last two billion people have no hope for living a rich or comfortable life.

How you regard a person poorer than you decides how the God regards you poorer than the God.

If you forsake them while you have life, the God or Allah will forsake you after the end of your life.

Tonight I saw an NHK TV program featuring Japanese midget submarines having been carried by a large submarine and then released underwater for the Pearl Harbor Attack, the Sydney Harbor Attack, etc. during WWII.,0,6991792.story


No war is inevitable, which is my understanding regarding the Pearl Harbor Attack. It is so, though 99% of the people think in any era that leaders are doing their best to avoid war. However, leaders would make war if they think they would lose power or reputation unless they open war.

War is only justified when the God specifically tells you to open war, which you must prove before the people. Otherwise, place defense forces within the territory...

(Some people, maybe including you, say this is the best popular Christmas song composed by a Japanese: )

Mar 12:19 Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

Mar 12:20 Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.

Mar 12:21 And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.

Mar 12:22 And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.

Mar 12:23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.

Mar 12:24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?

Mar 12:25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.

"Judgment to the Gentiles"

Riches, GDP, Energy, Heat, and Warming

Everybody was afraid of CIA and FBI all over the world.

But, now not so much, since CIA and FBI could not arrest one outstanding terror suspect Mr. Osama bin Laden.

Conversely, if CIA and FBI could take Mr. Osama bin Laden to a court in Washington D.C. or New York to do justice on him, America would be more respected.

Indeed, without Mr. Osama bin Laden around 2000, there should not have been the War on Iraq and the War in Afghanistan.

Truly, one of the biggest news stories in 2009 is, again, the failure in apprehension of Mr. Osama bin Laden.

Or otherwise, will President Mr. Barack Hussein Obama can withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan in any future without apprehension of Mr. Osama bin Laden?

Or extremely, can he rely on China and India in this context?

Check Japanese volunteers in Afghanistan (a 2010 Nobel Peace Prize candidate):


CIA adopts a nation's GDP at purchasing power parity (PPP) exchange rates which is the sum value of all goods and services produced in the country valued at prices prevailing in the United States.

According to it, Top 17 GDP countries as of 2008 estimated are as follows:
-------- (purchasing power parity)
1 EU.. ......$ 14,940,000,000,000
2 USA...... $ 14,440,000,000,000
3 China...... $ 7,992,000,000,000
4 Japan...... $ 4,340,000,000,000
5 India.... ... $ 3,304,000,000,000
6 Germany...... $ 2,925,000,000,000
7 Russia...... $ 2,271,000,000,000
8 UK... ... .. $ 2,236,000,000,000
9 France...... $ 2,133,000,000,000
10 Brazil...... $ 1,998,000,000,000
11 Italy...... $ 1,827,000,000,000
12 Mexico...... $ 1,567,000,000,000
13 Spain...... $ 1,402,000,000,000
14 Korea, South...... $ 1,338,000,000,000
15 Canada...... $ 1,303,000,000,000
16 Indonesia...... $ 916,700,000,000
17 Turkey...... $ 903,900,000,000 2008

I have a feeling that CIA is clandestinely working together with China to prevent world citizens from respecting Japan more than America...

SECTION II: Nominal GDP, Land Size, and Population

( )

Here you have to divide GDP by an area and population of each country to see how much potential a country has per area and per person.

Results are:
#---COUNTRY----GDP /(Area X Population)
1...S. Korea.... ... ..1952
2...UK.... ... ..1778
3...Italy.... ... ..1283
4...Germany.... ... ..1252
5...Japan.... ... ..1022
6...France.... ... ..841
7...Spain.... ... ..707
8...Australia.... ... ..62
9...Mexico.... ... ..50
10...USA.... ... ..49
11...Canada.... ... ..45
12...Brazil.... ... ..10
13...Russia.... ... ..7
14...China.... ... ..3
15...India.... ... ..3

You can see the truth more clearly in the figure below:

(Click to enlarge)

Now you must have something to say, think over, or claim.

However, it is apparent that major economies can be divided into the following groups:

GROUP-A: Western Europe and Far East
S. Korea, UK, Italy, Germany, Japan, France, Spain

Group-B: New Continental Region
Australia, Mexico, USA, Canada

Group-C: Mega Countries
Brazil, Russia, China, India

You should not deal with all the economies alike applying the American Standard.

Indeed, economists never conduct this sort of analysis, since they cannot understand importance of features, characteristics, traditions, cultures, environments, and climates of nations in the world. (Do not involve economists in the global warming discussions, since it is a highly religious matter at its core of the issue.)

"A fool's wrath"

(Tokyo Subway Map; Not all the Tokyo people are humble, wise, gentle, or courageous...though far better than coward leaders of terror...)


Mr. George Shultz was being interviewed as I observed on a cable TV channel around Tokyo yesterday.

He was talking about something of 1968 and some administrative dealing with a big railroad company of the era, since Mr. Shultz was United States Secretary of Labor from 1969 to 1970.

Too big financial companies must be split for corporate breakup so as to avoid such a huge financial catastrophe as observed in 2008, according to my interpretation of his view.

Anyway, the spirit of 1960's might be still alive with Mr. Henry Kissinger and Mr. George Shultz still having something to say, though the former took up the office of Secretary of State in 1970's (1973-1977) and the latter in 1980's (1982-1989), so impressively.

(Secretary General of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan Mr. Ichiro Ozawa was first elected as national lawmaker in 1969, though today he still keeping a Lower House seat looks like an elder brother of P.M. Mr. Yukio Hatoyama...)


The Japanese Government made public results of its periodical survey on voters' opinion.

To America:
Have a friendly feeling...78.9%
No friendly feeling...19.1%

Concerning Japan's Relationship with America:
Judge to be in good conditions...81.8%
Not in good conditions...14.4%

To China:
Have a friendly feeling...38.5%
No friendly feeling...58.5%

Concerning Japan's Relationship with China:
Judge to be in good conditions...38.5%
Not in good conditions...55.2%

As for U.N. Security Council Membership:
Japan should be a member...79.2%
Japan should not be...6.8%

(By Public Service Section, Minister's Secretariat of Cabinet Office of Japan [, Tel- 03(3581)0070])

As Japanese people who have a friendly feeling to Australia account for about 50% of all, China should make more efforts to gain friendship from ordinary Japanese citizens.

Americans' voting for Mr. Barack Obama in the 2008 Presidential Election apparently had a good influence on the Japanese view on America, since 76.3% of the Japanese judged the relationship with America to be good two years ago, 5% less than today.

SECTION II: Religion as Reaction in History

In 2006 B.C, Elam, an ancient civilization located in what is now southwest Iran, finally destroyed the last Sumerian kingdom 3rd Dynasty of Ur.

Accordingly, Abraham and his father with other members of their clan left Ur to Palestine, though they looked like a kind of nomadic Sumerians living around the great city Ur.

Since the God was not pleased by Elam and subsequent Amorite hegemony, Abraham's God supported him to flee Mesopotamia and further take shelter in Egypt.

Egypt with power of building Pyramids, however, could not satisfy the God. The God chose Hebrews as He saw that Egyptians could not cope with Greeks and Romans.

The God further helped Hebrews since He saw that Persians could not surpass Greeks and Romans, allowing them to compile the Old Testament.

Nonetheless, the God sent Jesus Christ among Israelites around 1 B.C. or 6 B.C., since He found that Israelites could not even check the Roman Empire.

Though Christianity prevailed in the Roman Empire, the God found that the Vatican was useless to spread His glory to the Arab world and Central Asia. He also found grave flaws in European Christianity, so that he sent an Angel to Arabs with His holy words.

So, Islam protected Arabs, Persians, Turks, and others from invasion by European Christians.

Yet, around 1500 when Europeans started to sail to Africa and Asia, the God judged that the Vatican alone was not enough to prevail His glory in the world, so that He set Christopher Columbus (1451 – 1506) and Martin Luther (1483 – 1546) for two missions: America and Protestantism.

In the late 19th century, the God finally chose Japan to check America and Europe, violently exploiting Africans, Latin Americans, and Asians, while allowing America to defeat Japan in WWII so as to introduce Christian Democracy into Japan.

This is the sequence of incidents spotlighted from a standpoint of religion which was enabled by the God as reaction to destructive force in history.

Top 10 Car Makers of the World in 2009

Now, the market has data on global car sales in the first half of 2009. Among top 10, Japanese makers have secured 4 seats, while a Korean maker jumped to the 4th position.

1. TOYOTA (Japan)
Japanese car maker Toyota Motor Corporation is the world's largest car manufacturer. It has sold 3,564,105 units in the first half of 2009 compared to 4,815,442 units in the first half of 2008.

General Motors could sell 3,552,722 units compared to last year's 4,541,125 units.

3. VOLKSWAGEN (Germany)
It sold 3,100.300 units this year compared to 3,265,200 units of previous years.

4. HYUNDAI-KIA (Korea)
The Korean car maker showed global sales for the first half of 2009 at 2,153,000 units.

Presently, it is world's fifth largest car maker with 2,145,000 units of global sales.

The French car company sold 1,586,900 units in 2009.

7. HONDA (Japan)

8. NISSAN (Japan)

9. SUZUKI (Japan)

10. RENAULT (France)

So, four of the Top 10 car makers in the world are now Japanese makers.
Incredibly, five of Top 10 car makers in the world are now Far East enterprises.
Plus, "the Nissan-Renault Alliance is world's fourth largest car maker if their individual units were taken together."

If you are a rich man, I would not be surprised if you have 10 different cars from each of the above car manufacturer. Then, present them to the poor as it is Christmas.

As for me, I once had a Mitsubishi car and Nissan cars.

Pro 12:16 A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.

Pro 12:17 He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.

Pro 12:18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.

"the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house "

Everybody wants to see His Majesty the Emperor in Tokyo, even the 6th ranked member of the Politburo Standing Committee, China's de facto top power organ.

So, Mr. Xi Jinping, China's Vice President, was successfully admitted to the Imperial Palace to have a courteous talk with the Emperor for 24 minutes in Tokyo yesterday.

However, Mr. Xi is a little different from, say, U.S. Vice President, since Mr. Xi is the 6th ranked member of the Politburo Standing Committee of China.

Anyway, if you want to see in person His Majesty the Emperor in Japan, you have to solicit an imperial favor in this context to the Imperial Household Agency through the Japanese Government at least one month prior to your preferred date, since the Emperor is respectfully old and busy sometimes in holy duty of imperial Shintoism.

Finally, it is Prime Minister of Japan who has the sole national right to collect tax and command the Self Defence Forces of Japan subject to the Constitution introduced after WWII.

SECTION I: America's Place in the World

Unlike members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), ordinary Americans lack correct information and notions about Japan and China, partly because of so much biased Wall Street's advertising of Chinese money to raise expectations among consumers and investors about investment returns.

The US and the World: as Americans See It - 2009
By Patricia H. Kushlis

The Pew Charitable Trusts has been releasing its most recent public opinion polls on how the world sees the United States and, conversely, how Americans see the world and the US role in it over the past few weeks.
Although CFR members see China as less of a threat to the US and an increasingly important future ally than they did earlier in the decade, the American public remains wary. Over 53% of the latter group say "that China represents a major threat to the U.S" even though Iran is "mentioned most often" as posing "the greatest danger to the US."
In comparison only 30% of the American public believe the US international position has not declined...But both CFR members (92%) and the Americans (70%) surveyed think that the US should be involved in shared world leadership – as opposed to single leadership – whatever that means
While China is seen as a growing economic power and 44% of the Americans surveyed named China as the world's leading economic power and only 27% naming the US (sic), the report does not include a comparative figure for the opinions of CFR members. One can only hope that their information is more accurate because the statistics I’ve seen indicate the US – despite all its economic problems and deep recession – remains well ahead of China as number 1. Nevertheless, the Chinese economy is growing rapidly –and has recently surpassed Japan as the second largest economy.
But here are the figures as reported in The Economist's World in 2010. For 2009 US GDP totaled $14,840 billion while China’s was $5,588 billion and Japan’s $5,128 billion).
Meanwhile, the American public (63%) still sees the US as the world’s leading military power while 18% (sic) think China is and 57% of Americans think the US should "try to maintain America’s role as the world’s only military superpower."

It is apparent that the American public is under a bad influence of Wall Street's advertising of Chinese money.

It is so, since they do not know that in China there is no freedom to freely express individual view on government policies, politics, politicians, and international relationships, say, with America and Japan.

SECTION II: The (Religious) Reformation

Between the First Crusade and the 21st century lies the Reformation, since it was set off around 1500, somehow significantly.

Yet, you must realize that Christopher Columbus (1451 – 1506) preceded Martin Luther (1483 – 1546) though both the heroes lived around 1500.

Here we can find the very miracle of history.

The root of the United States is older, though slightly, than the first Bible book published in a language other than Latin.

In other word, the root of the United States is older, though slightly, the root of Protestant churches.

Extremely, the history of the United States is older than that of Protestant churches.

What I mean is that the U.S. does not necessarily have to be a protestant country, according to the will of the God being manifested in the concrete sequence of facts in history.

SECTION III: The (Religious) Reformation 2

It was money that finally triggered the revolt against the Pope and the Vatican around 1500.

In 1516-17, Johann Tetzel, a Dominican friar and papal commissioner for indulgences, was sent to Germany by the Roman Catholic Church to sell indulgences to raise money to rebuild St Peter's Basilica in Rome.[27] Roman Catholic theology stated that faith alone, whether fiduciary or dogmatic, cannot justify man;[28] and that only such faith as is active in charity and good works (fides caritate formata) can justify man.[29]

The benefits of good works could be obtained by donating money to the church.

So, the last semi-millennium period began with Columbus' discovery of the American Continent and Luther's revolt against the Pope with the underlying crisis of contamination of the Christian world by money.

This 500-year period is going to end with America's rise and change, Protestant power's rise and change, and the Vatican still being unable to solve the money contamination issue.

The new semi-millennium period is however already emerging with the new nation Israel established around Jerusalem, direct confrontation between Islam and Israel/America, and global awareness of possible destructive money power as observed on Wall Street and City.

China rising and undergoing a change, too, without democracy and freedom of religion cannot be a savior of the Christian world, including Wall Street and the American labor market.

Nonetheless, holy reformation can be possible even in Japan, the greatest contributor to today's China's rise, since Japan alone has unique historical tradition in terms of coins and money.

2009 Xmas Extra:
This November the most distant miracle happened for mankind, namely at a point in the space as far as the Sun from the earth:

Hayabusa, a space craft launched by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency in May 2003, is now flying back to the earth with a sample of material taken from a small near-Earth asteroid named 25143 Itokawa (dimensions 540 meters by 270 meters by 210 meters) on which Hayabusa had landed as the world first trial. But, one of the world most advanced ion engines stopped.

On November 4, 2009, the ion engine D automatically stopped working due to the anomaly from degradation.

On November 19, 2009, JAXA announced that they managed to combine the ion generator of ion engine B and the neutralizer of ion engine A. It is suboptimal but expected to be sufficient to generate the necessary delta-v. Out of 2,200 m/s delta-v necessary to return to the earth, about 2,000 m/s had been performed already, and about 200 m/s still necessary.

And, this needed orbit modification, 200 m/s, is estimated by JAXA to be automatically achieved sooner or later; Hayabusa is scheduled to return to the earth in June 2010.

Have you encountered any miracles this November, if not so far from the earth?

Believe in Japanese technology in 2010, too.

Gen 12:15 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.

Gen 12:16 And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.

Gen 12:17 And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.

Gen 12:18 And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that thou hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?

Gen 12:19 Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.

Gen 12:20 And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

"cast unto the earth"

(Tokyo Shinjuku Railway Terminals, an old and nostalgic place for some Japanese in a foreign country...; click to enlarge)


Total export of the Japanese listed companies (excluding the financial sector from the total 3700 businesses) to Asia between April and September has surpassed that to America for the first time by quarter basis.

Taiwan and Korea now export to China more than to America or Japan.

In this context, significance of American military presence in Japan and East Asia must be reviewed, since Japan spends a defense budget equivalent to only 0.9% of its GDP while the U.K. 2.4%.

It can be interpreted that the global warming hit the peak in 2006, but it is still under the influence of the momentum of the temperature rise in 1990's and early 2000's.


There are many factors that decide an employment rate of any given era:

R = F(I, W, C, O, P, D, IE, CE, BP, II,...)

R: Unemployment rate of any given period
I: Inflation rate
W: Wage level
C: Domestic consumption level
O: Industrial output
P: Productivity
D: Deflation pressure
IE: Industrial expectations
CE: Consumer expectations
BP: Business potential
II: Industrial innovation

You have to decide or find the function with the above parameters which does not only give a forecast of future unemployment but also a clue to decrease unemployment.

However, once or till 1968, economists solely relied on the following function:
R = F(I), that is only unemployment vs. an inflation rate or a wage level


The long-run Phillips Curve was thus vertical, so there was no trade-off between inflation and unemployment. Edmund Phelps won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2006 for this.

In the diagram, the long-run Phillips curve is the vertical red line. The NAIRU theory says that when unemployment is at the rate defined by this line, inflation will be stable. However, in the short-run policymakers will face an inflation-unemployment rate tradeoff marked by the "Initial Short-Run Phillips Curve" in the graph. Policymakers can therefore reduce the unemployment rate temporarily, moving from point A to point B through expansionary policy. However, according to the NAIRU, exploiting this short-run tradeoff will raise inflation expectations, shifting the short-run curve rightward to the "New Short-Run Phillips Curve" and moving the point of equilibrium from B to C. Thus the reduction in unemployment below the "Natural Rate" will be temporary, and lead only to higher inflation in the long run.

Since the short-run curve shifts outward due to the attempt to reduce unemployment, the expansionary policy ultimately worsens the exploitable tradeoff between unemployment and inflation.

It is not R = F(I) but R = F(I, W, C, O, P, D, IE, CE, BP, II,...) with specific weights on specific parameters according to characteristics of a given period of history.

Most simply, R = F(B) where "B" is a potential of businesses to employ workers; and
B = G(CP, FP) where "CP" is a current profit and "FP" is a future profit; and
FP = H(SC, TC, NC) where "SC" is social conditions, "TC" is technological conditions, and "NC" is the natural conditions while SC includes international conditions.

You may find a great relationship between F and ,say, "I," or a great behavior of F against, say, "I," but it is just a part of far more complicated features of the function F.

What an economist should say is to achieve what for the rich or the poor what must be done to what extent by the government, businesses, and consumers.

Conversely, if all the rich men in a nation decide to increase unemployment "R," they can do it very easily, since R = F(Will to make poor people unhappy).

They might do it, since, after that, they can hire workers at lower wages...


It is said that the unemployed were almost respected in Europe during the Middle Ages, since the poor are blessed by the God, according to the doctrine of the Vatican.

However Protestant Reformation changed this view, so that the poor and the unemployed came to be despised and hated because idleness came to be regarded as a sin like greed.

So, it is apparent that religion comes before economics.

Accordingly, you had better wonder what Islam and Judaism say about the unemployed.

Rev 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

Rev 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

Rev 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

Rev 12:16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

"Jesus was coming to Jerusalem"

(Shinjyuku, Tokyo)


It is time for the Japanese Government to issue government notes but not government bonds.

The Ministry of Finance must create and prepare a 100 trillion yen ($one trillion) bill and deposit it into its account in the Bank of Japan.

Then the Ministry should withdraw BOJ notes worth 100 trillion yen ($one trillion) from the account to use them for its budget compilation.

Inflation will not occur in the domestic market; the value of yen will not fall in the exchange market; and the mind of consumers will be brightened to behave in a forward-looking manner.

Juts a sheet of paper with the number, a 100 trillion yen, and a signature of the Minister of Finance would solve the decades-long financial problem of Japan.


Mr. Susumu Nishibe was talking with Mr. Makoto Staka on a cable TV channel I viewed on the weekend.

As they are very popular critics and authors in Japan, I listened to them while.

Ex-professor of University of Tokyo Mr. Nishibe was praising Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

He also rebuked the Cuban regime before Mr. Fidel Castro's.

Then, on Sunday night, I saw Mr. Lawrence Summers presenting his own forecast of the American economy.

Then this Monday morning of Japan, I found that Paul Anthony Samuelson, a Mr. Lawrence Summers' uncle, just died, though the first American Nobel Prize winner in economics was born in 1915.

And, I checked an article Mr. Paul Krugman wrote on The New York Times to find something reasonable, since he meant that transactions tax could thwart ultra-short-term run financing.

The possibility to earn a huge return using ultra-short-term run financing must turn an ordinary citizen into a greedy Wall Street guy.

There is of course something that turns a hero in revolution or economics into a half-rotten rich man in any era or any country.


Believe or not, 1000 years after the great war between the Roman Empire and Israelites, Jerusalem was again turned into a bloody stage of war.

Believe or not, close to 1000 years after the first crusade, the truly only successful crusade among several, Jerusalem has been again turned into a bloody stage of war.

The First Crusade was a military expedition by European Christians to regain the Holy Lands taken by the Muslim conquest of the Levant, which resulted in the capture of Jerusalem in 1099. It was launched in 1095 by Pope Urban II with the primary goal of responding to the appeal from Byzantine Emperor Alexius I...

Given that the First Crusade was largely concerned with Jerusalem, a city which had not been under Christian dominion for 461 years, as well as the crusader army's refusal to return the land to Byzantine control, the status of the First Crusade as defensive or as aggressive in nature remains controversial, both within academias and without.

Although these gains lasted for less than two hundred years, the First Crusade was part of the Christian response to the Islamic conquests, as well as the first major step towards reopening international trade in the West since the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

This first crusade heralded the coming of the new millennium for Europe, passing through the intermediate era after the fall of Rome.

However, the Pope did not move his church or the Vatican to Jerusalem on this occasion, which set the course, the fate, and meaning of existence of Europe for coming 1000 years.

Believe or not, the Age of the Crusade ended when Israel survived the 20th century to the 21st with help from the U.S. in my historical view.

Believe or not, we are in the middle of the most decisive situation in these 1000 or 2000 years.

Note: TLD - Top level domain name

So, if you access a Japanese domain ".jp" in the Internet, you are almost as safe as you access a Web site of your government.

The Cameroon domain ".cm"; the China domain ".cn"; and the Samoa domain ".ws" are the most dangerous domain names in 2009.

However, you may find nice people in Cameroon, China, and Samoa like you do in Japan.

It is so, since Japan is the only major country in the world to be honored over the Internet cyber space in 2009, too.

Joh 12:12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

Joh 12:13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Joh 12:14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,

Joh 12:15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.
