It’s April Fools Day
But I have to say that I
would trust George Takei …
.. if he’s serious about running for Congress in his state of California. I don’t see any reason why he shouldn’t. Other actors/celebrities who have been a lot less likeable – whatever about knowledgeable – have gone for politics and this guy, in contrast, is very likeable and knowledgeable.
Like other on-line comments I’ve read, if it’s true I’d nearly move to the US just to vote for the guy.
Well, April Fool’s Day or not, he should go ahead with it. I won’t say anymore in case it’s a joke. But I hope it’s not him takei-n the piss. He’s got a very good sense of humour but I don’t think he’d joke lightly about this.
Elsewhere, Japan is getting ready to take on North Korea for all that missile launching they’ve been carrying on with, in Japan’s – way too close for comfort – direction. As it’s actually self-defence they have a right to do so and there is no threat of changing the constitution to allow it. And Japan should stand up for itself, with or without the help of the US (I wonder what George Takei thinks of that). I just hope that it does not lead Japan down a dangerous path as there are way too many right-wingers in Japan who would take the chance to change the constitution and become all-out aggressive again. Shinzo Abe as I’ve said before is quite the militarist himself.
