Prime Minister Now Scattering Money

Japan's Prime Minister Aso (pronounced as uh-so, not ei-so) are going to distribute tax payers' money to themselves again. Sound strange? But that topic is quite hot every morning in every news channel  in Japan. It seems that every people will get a pay back about 12,000 -20,000 yen, in total the budgets will be 2 trillion yen.

This kind of money scattering is called baramaki in Japanese, in short, a waste of money. This policy looks like an grown-up person giving a 100-yen chocolate to a child who really needs a school to study. Giving a chocolate for distracting our interest from the economic crisis is not the government's task.

What a reaction should we take? Be happy with a tiny present from the government, even if it is our money? The effect is far from the Prime Minister's intention; we got really discouraged.

Here is a list of what we need that cannot afford with our own money:
  • Preschool taking care of every child, with no exceptions. Many Japanese people still haven't noticed the following fact; it is highly possible that no one takes care of their children while they are working. If you are a student, your opportunity to learn in universities or colleges will be lost because the government prioritizes working people to students as a criterion to enter the preschool. Even if your children are allowed to enter some preschool, it is usually far from your home, and parents will suffer long commute time between the preschool and their working place.
  • No smoking restaurants, parks, etc. for children. It's quite hard to find such a place even in Tokyo, a highly sophisticated city. Many people are smoking in sidewalks even if it is crowded. I really hate that old-fashioned custom.
  • Time to spend with families.  Many people work 8 hours a day with additional hours for overtime work (2 to 3 hours?) and commute (some people spends 2 hours to go to the work place.)  What is left is a face of sleeping child. If this working style in Japan continues, we lose the greatest teachers for children, namely, parents.
And a lot more should be here....  Anyway, my conclusion is that the government spend their money (it's our money) for investments to children, our indispensable asset for the future.
