All the news that I see has been the GOP going on the record of threaten Telecommunication companies because they do not want to be caught conspiring with Trump to overthrow a legally, democratically and fairly elected government.

Kevin McCarthy, Marjorie Taylor Greene Threaten Telecoms Not To Give Data to 1/6 Committee

I wonder the entire nation would like the GOP if they took away their cellphone and internet service.

The new trend in political circles has been the "Sympathy bump". Whenever a politician gets caught doing something embarrassing, they all of sudden get diagnosed with COVID to get out of the spotlight and let the heat die down. It has been very popular with the GOP in the US in the last 5 months.

Referring to Ishigami:

Just recently, he says, he connected with a banker. She’s 41, comely, vivacious; they met for dinner, had a good time, arranged a second date. Before it happened he received a message from her via Line: “Damn you, you old creep!” How? Why? What had he done? He’s still shaking his head – and gamely preparing to go back to square one.

It sounds like this busy 60 year-old might be telling these younger women who are looking for sugar daddies lies to get some loving. He is probably lying to the reporter, too!

That is misinformation and not true! They have the option of both. Yokosuka, Okinawa I know for a fact offer choices, as I’ve got a Pfizer shot at each location.

@Bubonam Justin Kayce........A good friend of mine, his wife and university son got Moderna at Yokosuka.

Oh sorry, did I destroy your narrative by proving that someone at the top of comedy finds Schumer smart? My bad.

Mate, you are not even attempting to make sense, anymore. I don't think that you have destroyed anyone's narrative. If anything you have strengthened the other sides point. You have also confirmed your lack of knowledge on the topic with that Pete Davidson point!

@commanteer

Does anyone actually believe this? He can start at home with his own team. The US is in no position to call any other country an autocracy.

You are right! Especially when the conservative supporters in the US elected an autocrat wannabe like Trump who lead a violent insurrection to stop a legally and fairly elected democratic president from taking office.

Trump is the stain on the US's credibility about anything!

A comedian who has made millions off comedy specials, sells out arenas for her stand-up, and got a comedy show re-signed for multiple seasons. On top of this story right here, were one of the greatest comedians of all time (Chappelle) is bringing her on his tour. You think he'd do that if he didn't think she's funny? Or do you think Dave Chappelle is one to sell out for money?

Iff this is not proof, then there isn't any proof that would satisfy you. Literally millions of people think she's funny. I don't need to prove it, their dollars already have.

You don't have to think she's funny. Her humor doesn't even really make me laugh much. But there is zero doubt that she is officially a funny person, whether any internet poster thinks so or not, as not only the masses, but also the masters (Chappelle, Joe Rogan) have declared so as well.

Actually, there are a number of reasons why a person can be rich and famous celebrity, and it does not necessarily have anything to do with talent. She might have had connections. (ie. "Schumer")

Also, this is not a Chappelle show or tour. He is just one of the biggest names on the event, so your proof is not really true.

And still he retains he overall popularity with GOP voters overwhelmingly. Not a good sign for Dems as their second attempt at conviction failed and failed miserably.

Bass.......It says more about the "moral compass" and hypocrisy of the GOP and conservatives.

I do. Parlor isn’t online, Marjorie Greene’s account has been blocked as well as Trump’s. That’s more than enough evidence.

HAHA! How convenient that your evidence is on a shutdown website known for spreading conspiracies!

That is your hard evidence?

The problem is that the left these days want to silence things they don't agree with instead of engaging in reasonable discussion, or just ignoring things they don't like. Trying to censor opposition will just make them bite back, so don't say you haven't been warned.

Exactly

Gooch.................Not only is trump trying to silence critics but also FOXNEWS:

It is has been baring a lot of fruit!

...or like how you guys predicted Trump will be removed, convicted go to prison, he’ll never run or be in politics again.

Bass......he was already removed from office by the American people. The investigations are still going on in NYC. The last two have not been proven false by you. It is almost guaranteed that he will not run 2024.

If mean by "being in politics" finding ways to swindle uneducated people and/or immoral people out of their money then you are correct. However, that is not anything to be proud of supporting a person like that.

By the way, he was impeached twice!

Perfect example of bias judgment.

The food was tested and it's safe to eat!

I personally ate food grown at Fukushima before.

Many people on here don't even live near Fukushima, how will you eat the food?

Bias judgment all around.

By the same people who are in charge of keeping track of COVID-19 infections for the Olympics. I am not going to put much faith in trusting the Japanese government in telling the truth about anything that makes them look ineffective.

@JeffLee

Markle's step sister wrote a book saying the princess has lots of issues, including the inability to tell the truth. Let's keep that in mind.

A logical thinker would consider the credibility of the source!

Posted in: Queen vows to address Harry and Meghan racism claims See in context

I doubt very little will be done because the royal family, the monarchy, the queen, and Brits have shown their double-standard for Americans, POC, and anyone who disagrees with them.

Let's not forget:

Virginia Roberts Giuffre alleged that the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein sex-trafficked her to the prince at least three times, charges that Andrew has denied, while a former employee of Epstein’s has claimed he saw Andrew “grinding” with a topless girl on Epstein’s Little St. James—a private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands dubbed “Pedophile Island.”

Whereas Prince Harry was stripped of his military titles upon stepping down from his royal duties, Prince Andrew has been allowed to keep his titles despite also stepping back from royal duties following the Epstein allegations. Buckingham Palace has failed to conduct an investigation into Andrew over it and instead has been pursuing a dubious “bullying” case against Markle.

Posted in: It’s too hard to sell Japanese people on romance dramas nowadays, says broadcasting president See in context

Poor writing could be the reason. Regurgitated plot, actors, and endings are another possible reason. You can find a lot better from international streaming services. People have options and old people running the TV stations like routine, which is bad for the TV stations.

The only sports and Japanese anime/kids shows are keeping Japanese TV a float with some quality!

Posted in: Fukushima fish, rice sellers still struggling to overcome consumer concerns See in context

Compensate the farmers, but I will try to avoid consuming Fukushima products.

Unfortunately, they have the labeling rule about mixing multiple products together. When you mix a variety of foods like rice various sources. only the two largest contributors need to be listed on the packaging.

For example, if a mixed bag of rice is mixed Chiba 33.5%, Saitama 33.5% and Fukushima 33%, only Chiba and Saitama need to be listed on the label.

They just need to spread the rice over various business sectors little by little, so everyone is responsible, and no one person takes the blame. That seems very Japanese!

That rice could also be sold to chain restaurants, small mom/pop restaurants, or manufacturers that use rice as an ingredient. I do not believe that they are obligated to explain the source of the rice.
