Posted in: Japan had record 610,000 school bullying cases in FY2019 See in context

All this pent-up powerlessness, with no way to let it out.

Students, adults, the same thing.

Bullying has always been, but now it's on steroids.

There needs to be a way for people to express themselves,

to let this rage, and lack of power out.

It starts with realizing that everyone who feels this way

is not unique, or freakish.

More humor and expression, less anger and bullying.

Leave it to JAPAN Inc. to make a racket out of pandemic travel.

Test result may be credible, might not,

but you've paid that yen and got your sticker, then a stamped form,

you are literally good to go,

and JAPAN Inc. takes their percentage.

Pay to get a stamp, to buy a...

Where have we seen this before?

Another company buys into 'social justice'.

I don't care about it.

I don't care how you decide to wear your hair,

for whatever reason.

I don't care what plumbing you carry, and how you choose to

use it, at any time, place or event.

I just want a shampoo company to sell shampoo, nothing else.

Japanese love the cultural pull of NYC,

but there's danger there, that matches pitch.

Full recovery wished, and move out of The Bronx, Unno-san.

Even if Biden or Obama came down with this virus, I would not wish them harm, or hope for their demise, and as leaders I despised their ideas.

A majority on this board in their disrespect, contempt and lack of humanity

Ladles and jellyspoons

I come before you

to stand behind you

and tell you something

I know nothing about.

Next Friday,

the day before Thursday, there will be a ladies' meeting for men only.

Wear your best clothes,

if you haven't any,

and if you can come, please stay home.

Admission is free,

you can pay at the door.

We'll give you a seat,

so you can sit on the floor.

It doesn't matter where you sit,

the man in the gallery

is sure to spit.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic athletes to be exempted from virus entry bans See in context

This is outright insanity.

When Tokyo won the Olympic's bid,

I thought then it was a bad idea to spend money on that while other issues

are still open sores, but now to be put at risk by this government's

blood thirst to keep these games at all costs, is too much.

Posted in: Japan's top court sides with tattoo artist in test case See in context

The Supreme Court backed the earlier ruling that tattooing should not require a doctor's licence because it carries little risk of injury or health problems.

Not entirely true.

At one time, HCV was spread through tattoo needles.

It should not require a doctor's license, but requiring all artists and their equipment are up to date in all safety precautions would not be out of line.

Posted in: As sports embraces activism, what should Tokyo Olympics permit? See in context

This is sort of putting the cart before the horse, isn't it?

Will there be an Olympics, complete with even more over-crowding

with imported people, during a pandemic?

Political flummery aside, the first outrage is that these games are still being considered!

Posted in: Foreigners in Japan becoming target of discrimination due to virus See in context

There is outright racism, and then there's fear-based ignorance.

This pandemic is causing a lot of stress and fatigue.

People are getting tired of the whole lack of control they feel

and want to blame something / someone...

The guilty here are not racist as much as they ignorant,

and just plain tired of this situation.

Maybe they ought to know that everyone is doing their best,

all residents of Japan are enduring as best they can.

Either this virus will die out, or a vaccine will be found.

Until then we all have to live together, so make the best of it.

None of us are perfect.

Tough choice:

An external force perhaps attacking Japan and it's people,

or, the internal one, set to bleed its people dry with more taxes, to pay for this.

Posted in: Trump calls on Fox News to fire reporter after she confirmed his alleged remarks on Marines killed in action See in context

Given the media's history of outright lying, twisting and taking comments out of context,

I'm thinking it's more of the SOS, with this reporter.

It's become so much so, that like the downvotes on this site,

everything must be taken with a grain of salt.

Horrific.

Trying to imagine the force of blows it took to kill

a young, healthy woman, I don't want to.

A disgusting, despicable act, I hope this man

is given time enough time in stir, to suffer remorse,

if he has any in the first place.

Posted in: Trump visits Kenosha, calls violence 'domestic terrorism' See in context

“These are not acts of peaceful protest but, really, domestic terror,” said Trump. 

Right as rain.

Black Lives Matter, Antifa, are American terrorists,

that threaten life, liberty, & property.

They are schoolyard bullies on a mission, without compunction.

We can thank the media for their bit,

egging it on, every step of the way.

They don't desire peace, moderation, or unbiased information distribution,

they stand with anarchy, it's good for their business.

Some guys just can't accept rejection.

Seems like if he'd do this, he's be the type to stalk her

if she ghosted him.

Now, he'll have a record at 22, and she'll be free, but damaged.

Ain't love grand?

Pregnant & expecting mothers are a business,

and it's time they started exercising their right to choose.

A private licensed midwife at home, means comfort and no stringent rules,

using a hospital only as a back-up, for emergencies...

Why can't the customer, have the power to say "no thanks"?

It is your life, your labor, and your baby-

Say no to being treated as a germ.

Many people are interested in yukata, & kimono,

but it is not welcoming to foreigners due to sizes.

It also urged them to ventilate classrooms, while properly using air conditioners to lower temperatures.

In 2020, to have to use this statement, is pretty telling.

Most school room classes are not air conditioned, combine that with wearing a mask,

and any outdoor sports activities?

A recipe for disaster.

P.S. If schools are open, why not pools?
