Posted in: Suga calls on public to watch Olympics on TV as Japan eases state of emergency See in context

Me too. I will not watch it, is is an abomination and a disgrace to humanity to hold these Games now."

Agreed..not watching it either. Is the hypocrat strawberry farmer gonna watch it on TV too or will he be in the VIP stand with the other lords to be followed by fine steaks and booze at Ginza while peasants are told to stay home and drink a can of beer?

Posted in: Why are Olympics going on despite public opposition, medical warnings? See in context

How have the International Olympic Committee and the Japanese government of Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga been able to bypass strong opposition?"

Uhm...is that a serious question.?..by not giving a damn about public & medical professionals opinion, steamrolling over it and prioritizing money and oyaji pride as was plain to see from the beginning...disgrace. Once the cases start rising again afer the games , watch the "it wasn,t me , it was someone else,s responsibility " dance begin.

Posted in: Japan looks to ease virus state of emergency ahead of Olympics See in context

“In order to prevent another upsurge, it is crucial to prevent the people from roaming around during the Olympics and summer vacation,” he said."

Yeah, that might be a bit hard to do with 100 thousand foreigners involved in Olympics and tens of thousands of domestic fans daily ( if the arrogant strawberry farmer and his JOC buddies get their way ) mingling inside and outside of Olympic venues.

When will the govt EVER give a damn about the Japanese people!"

Not until the peasants vote out LDP and let them learn a painful electoral defeat lesson will that happpen. Alas chances are very slim indeed as long as the perenial "shooganai" attitude continues here.

Posted in: According to many polls, the majority of the Japanese public say they want the Tokyo Olympics to be canceled or postponed again. So why haven't opponents of the Games taken to the streets in large numbers to protest? Is it a cultural thing? See in context

 Let's see though, how far can the Japanese remain timid and quiet for long.

Pretty sure they can stay quite " timid and quiet" very long.

Tokyo Olympic organizers plan to give away about 150,000 condoms at next month's Games, but are telling athletes to take them home 

ROFL...take them home...omiyage...just when you thought the organizers couldnt come up with anything more idiotic, they outdo themselves, haha.

 Now we can call these SugaCon?

SugaCon- good one., lol..actually SugaCon would be a good nickname for the ichigo farmer since hardly an honest word comes out of him.

Posted in: Gov't considering quasi-state of emergency in Tokyo during Olympics See in context

The official said staging the Olympics and Paralympics has now become an international commitment after leaders of the Group of Seven wealthy democracies expressed support on the weekend for the sporting extravaganza.

Thats some funny stuff...so Suga goes around the G7 meeting begging for a pledge of "support" from the other leaders and once they give it ( to get rid of him no doubt lol ) J-officials start using this as an excuse that Games are now "an international commitment " and therefore can,t be altered. Freak off.

Will I need to wear a quasi-mask? 

You should already have one...the Abenomask..only covers about a quarter of an adult face.

So bars will be allowed to stay open but serve only low-alcohol drinks in limited quantity, so that customers only get quasi-drunk, and talk only in a quasi-loud voice!

LOL, nice one.

Posted in: Japan to secure COVID vaccines for 20,000 more Olympic workers See in context

SInce there is curiously no word on where this additional vaccine supply is coming from ( ie not donated by Pfizer as with the first 20 thousand shots for the athletes ) we can assume its being taken away from the general over 65 J-population supply.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga on Sunday said he had won firm support at a G7 summit meeting in Britain for holding the Tokyo Olympics "

Posted in: Suga not ruling out election if no-confidence vote submitted See in context

That photo says it all...no comment needed, this is what passes for "leadership" here.

Japan should be embarrassed by its leadership like the US was the last 4 years!"

Indeed.

Clearly, Suga fumbled the coronavirus like no other world leader, and to speak about it as if he had been focusing on it all these months is an insult to every person who has been subject to his "leadership".

Spot on comment.

The mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna), appear to provide lifetime protection in the recent studies for people who got the virus"

Yep, that must be why Pfizer CEO just talked about the need for a " booster " after 12 months. You can bet big pharma will want this to become an annual shot , just like influenza.

"You're so cool. I've seen the Australian team a few times, you guys are really cool," said Masayoshi Shimizu, mayor of Ota in Gunma Prefecture.

The Aussie girls be like...geez, thanks for that papi, that sounds real genuine.

"Thanks to all of you, Ota City has become famous. I appreciate it," he told the team.

Ota City reputation has been spreading around the world like wildfire since they arrived I hear.

Right. Telling someone you are so cool is not cool. Calling yourself Cool Japan is not cool either.

LOL..this.

Posted in: Sports days have positive effects, not only in improving physical ability but also in allowing students to bond. They nurture a sense of cooperation through physical education classes held prior to the event. Although schools have been asked to take various measures and reduce school hours amid the pandemic, I hope sports days will be kept as a way to enhance the learning experience for students. See in context

Whats the problem in skipping it once or twice due to a global pandemic....once majority is vaccinated by next year, there is no issue. Anyone thats been to a school festival knows well there is lots of parents and families mingling with each other.
