"Peter answering said, The Christ of God"

Article 41 The Diet shall be the highest organ of state power, and...
Article 1 The Emperor shall be the symbol of the State and...
Article 25 (1) All people shall have the right to maintain the minimum standards...
of wholesome and cultured living...

Where is the Christ?
(Où est le Messie?)

From the beginning, who want to be saved? - Those who are not rich at all.

But, making them all rich is not an answer.

Telling them to love the God and neighbors in the manner Jesus Christ taught is the answer.

Therefore, the Christ is in the teaching by Jesus Christ.

This sort of thinking is, of course, what those making money or relying on economics cannot follow, since a man can serve only the God to enter Heaven or Devil to fall into the hell.

But, who or what is the God and are the neighbors?

SECTION I: The God Is Angry

I can understand it.

When I acted following the order of the God, fools thought they were wiser than I was and the God was.

Their foolishness must make the God angry.

When I acted following the order of the God, arrogant people thought they were wiser than I was and the God was.

Their foolishness must make the God angry.

Even U.S. officials once said about North Korea, "The band of gangsters call their organization the Government of North Korea!"

Some Japanese who once said, "The band of gangsters call their organization Wall Street businesses!" now praise a certain group of politicians who are nothing but gangsters in their strategic behaviors on the stage of national politics of Japan.

Now, American politicians are closely associated with China, a big ally of North Korea, for financial benefits, while imprudent trade with China has made ordinary and poor Americans poor and poorer.

Now, some Japanese politicians who have frequently visited China to be treated as close friends keep silence on any anti-Japanese movement being conducted in China, while Japanese businesses operating in China face some difficult situations, including breach of contract.

So, while the God must be pleased to see Chinese poor people getting out of poverty, some Japanese and Americans must provoke the God in terms of China.

To avoid execution of anger by the God, Japanese and American politicians must respect their own poor people in Japan and the U.S., respectively, more than rich Chinese elites.

SECTION III: Hidden Factors

Economies is not true science.

So, it has not adopted an idea of a hidden factor.

A: Appearance of an phenomenon
C: Causes identified with theories
D: Hidden Factors

A = C + D

This is a commonsense in science.

But, for economists:

A = C

Accordingly, this equation cannot be realized, so that economists blame reality or concoct stupid theory to regard "A < C" or "C > A" as "A = C."

Economics is just a guideline in analyzing economy. It cannot offer any valuable answers.

But, if an economist thinks that economics is the most valuable science, he is sick.

And, if it is not science, what is it?

We call it a tool.

If economics should be so effective, it proves how foolish economists in the world are, since they cannot master it to apply to solution of economic problems in the world. If economics is not for solution, what is it for?

Fools are everywhere in universities, think-tanks, institutes, and research centers as well as central banks and Davos conferences. What have they solved after Marx and Keynes?

*** *** *** ***

The God is who is almighty and the source of almightness.

And, the neighbors are your neighbors who might need your money.

To love the God, you have to first admit that how foolish you are.

To love your neighbors, you have to first admit that how much you love your money than your neighbors.

Yet, if you clear these hurdles, you can be holier than the Pope.

Indeed, St. Peter, the first Pope, was admitted by Jesus Christ as he said to Him, "You are the Messiah who must be God." St. Peter said so, risking his life, since it was the most serious crime to call a man God in Judaism. Accordingly, St. Peter was rewarded for his assertion that should last at least for 2000 years with St. Peter's successors in charge.

Luk 9:19 They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.

Luk 9:20 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.

Luk 9:21 And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing;

"which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh"

Japanese Parliament (Diet) Building, Tokyo
Government Offices Area
Leaving the Tokyo Station(The Japanese ruling party DPJ has 306 Lower House members and 106 Upper House members, namely total 412 National Diet members. The major opposition LDP has 116 Lower House members and 85 Upper House members, namely total 201 National Diet members. Till the regime change last year, the state of balance was almost opposite. So, the next Lower-House election, the DPJ might lose 100 lawmakers and the LDP might win 100 more, which only the God knows.)

Rich Americans and Rich Chinese against Poor Americans
(Japonais riches et pauvres comme des amis américains)

Probably most of poor Americans are happy being part of the great nation of America.

But, which have contributed more to the greatness of America: rich Americans or poor Americans?

It is Christian Americans no matter if they are rich or poor.

But, Japan has also greatly contributed to America as it has to the Chinese success.

But, China might come before poor Americans as if they were another Japan, trying to win thanks, respect, and influential power among poor Americans many of whom China has created.

SECTION I: American Poverty

(Click to check.)

Rising tide of US poverty near 60s levels

By Hope Yen and Liz Sidoti 5:30 AM Wednesday Sep 15, 2010

Demographers found wide consensus that 2009 figures are likely to show a significant rate increase to the range of 14.7 per cent to 15 per cent.

Should those estimates hold true, about 45 million people in the United States, or more than 1 in 7, were poor last year.

* Child poverty increased from 19 per cent to more than 20 per cent.

* Blacks and Latinos were disproportionately hit, based on their higher rates of unemployment.

* Metropolitan areas that posted the largest gains in poverty included Modesto, California; Detroit; Cape Coral-Fort Myers, Florida; Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

In 2008, the poverty level stood at US$22,025 ($30,174) for a family of four, based on an official government calculation that includes only cash income before tax deductions.

dT: Increase in the total population (T)
dP: Increase in the poor (P)
R: Ratio of poverty

R = (P + dP) / (T + dT)

=(P/T + dP/T) / (1 + dt/T)

If dp/T << dt/T,

R = (P/T) / (1 + dt/T)

= P / (T + dt)...??

So, while there is a steady increase in the poor, if there is a larger increase in the total population who are yet to get poor enough, the ratio of poverty decreases.

In summary, young Americans and (legal) immigrants to America who are counted but yet to be categorized into the poor have contributed to the above figure on the American poverty trend: the absolute number of the poor is increasing, but the poverty ratio is decreasing.

But, the time of truth has come with the 2009 data at hand of the American media...

SECTION II: Chinese Poverty

While 45 million people in the United States are poor, Chinese people living in absolute poverty, according to national poverty line criteria, had decreased from about 260 million to about 14 million.

Rural poverty in China

Population pressure strains the productive capacity of the 10 per cent of the land area that is suitable for sustained cultivation. An increasing number of livestock compete for fodder on fragile rangelands. Flood-prone areas and deteriorating irrigation systems result in waterlogging and salinization. Encroaching deserts threaten formerly productive land.

As a result of these policy shifts, China has been undergoing continuous economic growth since 1978. By 2008 per capita income had increased sixfold, and the number of people living in absolute poverty, according to national poverty line criteria, had decreased from about 260 million to about 14 million.

Despite China's strong and sustained economic growth, poverty is still persistent, especially in remote rural areas. Income inequalities between eastern and western China have broadened, and the income gap between rural and urban residents has widened considerably since the late 1970s.

However, according to "Poverty Alleviation in China: A Lesson for the Developing World?" written by Chinese researchers, there can be still 75 million poor people in China.


Note: This table displays the official poverty headcount in China, based on the coresponding poverty line and lowincome cut-off lines. The poverty line was increased from 100 yuan per person per year in 1978 to 668 yuan in 2004. Poverty statistics based on the low-income line are available since 2000, when the cut-off point was at 865 yuan per person per year. Since then the low-income line was increased to 924 yuan. According to these critieria, the most severe poverty in China was reduced from 250 million in 1978 to 26 million in 2004 (based on poverty line) and from 95 million in 2000 to 76 million in 2004 (based on the low-income line).

SECTION III: Conclusions or The Chinese American-Dream

China is growing in terms of industry and economy to catch up with Japan.

In contrast, America is now racing with China in terms of poverty.

Yet, super-rich Americans do not mind any such statistics, since America cannot be attacked, defeated, and occupied by China through war.

However, the next of the next of the next of U.S. President can be a Chinese American, in my feeling.

Anyway, Chinese statistics cannot be trusted, and Chinese elites do not mind poor Americans but expect them to come to respect the Chinese Communist Party. Even American labor unions might receive secret support from the Chinese Communist Party in return to helping Chinese Americans make their careers in the American politics.

But, a majority of Americans will still continue to live as a kind of Christians Chinese elites cannot brainwash rather than start to follow the Chinese Communist Party and accept Chinese despotic influences on the American Government in future.

Finally, the increase in GDP of China means an increase in the ability of the Chinese Communist Party to carry out any secret operation in America, targeting super-rich Americans and poor Americans.

For example, to your astonishment, in WWII, the U.S. tied up with the Chinese Communist Party to fight the Empire of Japan, though the U.S. was later betrayed by China to face the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, and even this War on Terror (China has been a virtual ally of Pakistan).

*** *** *** ***

Japanese Prime Minister Mr. Naoto Kan has appointed the former Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to the new Minister of Foreign Affairs.

It is rare that a politician in his 40's is appointed to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Japan.

But, New Foreign Minister Mr. Seiji Maehara belongs to the same group in the DPJ as Chief Cabinet Secretary Mr. Yoshito Sengoku, the most influential state minister on P.M. Mr. Kan.

The DPJ, the major ruling party in Japan, consists of two types of lawmakers: socialistic ones and reformists. P.M. Mr. Kan and Chief Cabinet Secretary Mr. Sengoku are of the former and F.M. Mr. Maehara of the latter. So, the new Foreign Minister is not anti-American at all.

The common enemy of these three key figures of the Kan Cabinet is of course Mr. Ichiro Ozawa, the most powerful leader among several leaders of groups within the party.

But, it was found in the recent party election that the more threatening common enemy of these three key figures in the Kan Cabinet is surprisingly Mr. Yukio Hatoyama, the Former Prime Minister of Japan who have frequently flown to China and Russia after his resignation from premiership, though by authority of P.M. Mr. Kan.


I call them "The Super-Hero on the 10th Avenue" and "My Star," respectively.

I do so, since very recently a coup attempt was successfully put down in my interpretation.)

Gen 9:15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

Gen 9:16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

Gen 9:17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

Gen 9:18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.

One Enemy, Two Friends, & Three Fatal Enemies
(un homme riche, les pauvres, et rivaux en amour)

At last, autumn has come to Japan as a big political event ended with a kind of drastic victory for incumbent Prime Minister Mr. Naoto Kan in the party election to choose its new head.

(It was 73 degrees F or 23 degrees C as the highest temperature in Tokyo today.)

Since the defeat of the Upper-House election on July 11, 2010, P.M. Mr. Kan was under strong pressure. It was mainly driven by a kind of abnormal uniqueness of Former P.M. Mr. Yukio Hatoyama and augmented by a kind of crazy obsession of a political magnate Mr. Ichiro Ozawa.

So, P.M. Mr. Kan's leadership is endorsed by a majority of parliament members of the DPJ.

Yet, my advice to P.M. Mr. Naoto Kan, a 30-years-long Lower-House member, is to refer to past exceptional examples, such as the formation of the Koizumi Cabinet, as the Prime Minister is now busy designing new structure of his Cabinet and the party management team.

(Just for your information, P.M. Mr. Kan as party head of the ruling DPJ has appointed incumbent Foreign Minister Mr. Katsuya Okada to the Secretary General of the DPJ, a politically key position Mr. Ozawa occupied under the Hatoyama regime. Who the next Foreign Minister of Japan will be is yet to be announced.

Notably, Chief Cabinet Secretary Mr. Yoshito Sengoku is reportedly to continue the present function as the virtually No.2 state minister. Minister Mr. Sengoku entered the University of Tokyo in 1964 to leave it, for he passed the bar examination, in 1968 when the anti-Vietnam War student movement was at its climax in Japan. Both the Prime Minister and the Chief Cabinet Secretary were born in 1946, though Mr. Sengoku was first elected in the Lower House election in 1990, a decade later than Mr. Kan. Nobody knows how anti-American Mr. Sengoku is, though he works everyday in the office of Prime Minister.)

Some little information...

By Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) - 09/15/10 04:31 PM ET

That's why I strongly support the Providing Resources to Improve Dual Language Education (PRIDE) Act, which establishes and expands language programs in classrooms across the country, closing this gap. And since children more easily absorb foreign languages than older students and adults, I’ll soon introduce the Global Languages Early Education (GLEE) Act to focus funds on early education. Because, developing our youngest minds is the best path toward increased fluency now and improved competitiveness later.

BY JD Plus on 09/16/2010 at 03:49

Living on the coast, one only needs to go thru a drive thru restaurant to know that English is not the language of this land any longer. Can't even get an order in. Frankly, living in America, I would appreciate those living here would learn our language, as a requirement. While I am all for learning additional languages as an elective, I think it is more important right now to help others speak English. Do you realize how much money our schools waste sending out notices with pupils in 10 different languages? A STACK of papers, for one little notice! I doubt there is another country in the world that does this.

The Chinese Communist Party seems to have a strategy to make more and more Americans learn the Chinese langauge.

Then, such Americans might believe history of China written in Chinese more than in English or Japanese...

Jesus Christ is believed to have spoken Aramic, an ancient language that was alive till the sixth century, though some preserve it in Israel and Los Angeles today.

His direct disciples are believed to have spoken only Aramic.

Japan in a New Civil War Period?
(Japon dans une période de guerre civile neuf?)

Yet, this is not a story of Japan in the 16th century.

Experts in China and the U.S. are studying hard to find situations in Japan.

Put simply, Beijing has judged that Mr. Naoto Kan is better than Mr. Ichiro Ozawa.

The State Department in Washington has found that Mr. Naoto Kan is better than Mr. Ichiro Ozawa; but CIA in Washington does not trust Mr. Naoto Kan.

Viewed from one side, the present and future Kan Cabinets are a kind of socialist administrative office supported by labor unions and leftists. From another side, it is just the populist administration supported by citizens disgruntled with the conservative and rich opposition LDP.

Diplomatically, the new Kan Cabinet will not act nationalistic, just like the Hatoyama Cabinet. It will continue to be friendly to South Korea, China, and Russia. But, some foolish attitudes to China and America will be corrected somewhat.

They will be more decisively corrected when the LDP returns to power in the next general election by ousting the DPJ from power, according to a scenario.

The upper orange region stands for import to Japan from China.

The dark pink stands for export to China from Japan.

Note that as unit prices of goods made in China are low, the number of items imported from China can be usually large or huge not in simple proportion, compared with trade with Europe or America.

So, the above figure tells that the surge of trade with China to import cheap goods is one of the major causes of deflation/recession in Japan.

If suddenly another World No.2 economy has appeared adjacent to the existent No.2 economy, the latter would surely face a difficult situation like Japan that has faced China in a drastic situation change since 1993 or so.

The point at issue is that while there is no increase in population in Japan, more and more goods are imported from China, every year at average value of $7 billion or so since 1993.

The significance of the fact as one of the major causes of deflation/recession in Japan has however never been fully discussed by Mr. Bernanke and other American economists.

Ben, it is not a matter of interest rates of 1.5% or 1.75%, but an amount of imports from Chinese factories worth $15 to $17.5 billion every year if not deflation.

*** *** *** ***

The Japanese Government this morning made an exchange intervention for the first time since 2004, in order to set the yen around 85 yen per dollar but not around 82 yen.

However, it is unthinkable that the ratio of Yen/Dollar will be soon back to "100 Yen = 1 Dollar," a level of early 2009 and before.

Put simply, there is too many dollar bills in the world while American financial influence is being reduced. To maintain balance, the Bank of Japan must provide yen bills globally as many as possible but not only into the domestic market. The yen are purchased not for investment into Japan now, but for circulation between the global markets, taking a share of the dollar.

Anyway, it is worth mentioning, since the Japanese Government this morning made an exchange intervention for the first time since 2004.

Before leaving the office of prime minister of Japan, I hope that P.M. Mr. Naoto Kan will infuse 100 trillion yen ($1.2 trillion) into the global market, while having the BOJ use dollars to buy stocks of GM, Microsoft, Apple, Google, etc. in the NYSE.

Indeed, knowledge of bookkeeping and English are keys to success of some Japanese economists who have ever learnt in the East Coast of America.

So, learn it!

"two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them"

In 1914 the Tokyo Station (Marunouchi Station Office) was built and now under repair for scheduled competition at the end of fiscal 2011...

Decided So Critically!
(Bordure Passé le Shogun Ombre)

P.M. Mr. Naoto Kan won supporting votes from 206 DPJ national lawmakers.

Mr. Ichiro Ozawa 200.

Accordingly, incumbent Prime Minister of Japan Mr. Kan continues his premiership.

In counting of votes by DPJ local lawmakers and general party members/supporters, P.M. Mr. Kan overwhelmed Mr. Ozawa.

It was decided in the Democratic Party of Japan's convention held in Tokyo around 3:40 p.m. of Tuesday, September 14, Japan Time.

No Japanese media and journalists predicted that P.M. Mr. Naoto Kan would win more than 700 points, while everybody admitted that there was a chance that Mr. Ichiro Ozawa could decisively take advantage of his strong influences on many of inexperienced DPJ lawmakers.

P.M. Naoto Kan: 721 points (412 points + 309 points)
Ichiro Ozawa: 491 points (400 points + 91 points)

The ratio of the points from "local lawmakers + party members/supporters" on P.M. Mr. Kan's side to those on Mr. Ozawa's side is 309 to 91, namely three to one.

Some even predicted that it would be 576 to 644, meaning Mr. Ozawa's victory.

Critically, if P.M. Mr. Kan had less support from Upper/Lower-House members of his party than Mr. Ozawa on this occasion, it would create very unstable condition for his governance. In the case, Mr. Ozawa could mobilize many of those lawmakers to request an extraordinary party convention with only national lawmakers allowed to vote in an emergency party election to select its new head again sometime in future.

But, in reality, P.M. Mr. Kan took 206 parliament members on his side (Mrs. Nobuko Kan looks like contributing to gaining at least three lawmakers), while Mr. Ozawa 200.

So, total "721 to 491" is also powerfully meaningful.

Note also that the Ozawa Group consists of 150 National Diet members and Hatoyama Group 50, while Former P.M. Mr. Yukio Hatoyama worked extraordinarily hard to help Mr. Ozawa get elected as party head and thus the sole candidate for the Prime Minister of Japan from the DPJ.

It looks like that only those who belong to the Ozawa or the Hatoyama group voted for 40-years-long lawmaker Mr. Ichiro Ozawa, that is 200 among 411 congressional representatives of the DPJ. It means that Former P.M. Mr. Hatoyama is more responsible.

Now, Japanese media and journalists will start to criticize Prime Minister Mr. Kan as incredibly amateur in economics, though he is the Administrative head of the second largest and advanced economy Japan.

The Crazy Cats became the most popular band in Japan of early 1960's. Its members eventually turned to super-class comedians rather than musicians of the era. Most of them started their careers by playing for American soldiers who were stationed in Japan after WWII. But, they are now leaving this world one after another, shouting, "Enough Already!"

Indeed, it can be a comedy, if a young wife scolded by her irresponsible husband only once suddenly leaves him forever in a resolute silence and huff...though in early 1960's.

I really want to say, "It's where you should stop!" to some politicians.

Anyway, you should not get disappointed finding any faults in your young wife, since many husbands cannot find fatal failure in their wives while scolding them.)

Act 9:10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.
