“As the president fiddles, people are dying, and we have to take every precaution," she said. She promised a congressional investigation once the pandemic is over to determine whether Trump heeded advice from scientific experts and to answer the question that resonates through U.S. political scandals: “What did he know and when did he know it?”

Same should happen for abe & koike!!

Awful!!

The twin-jet West Wind 24 plane was carrying three medical personnel, three flight crew, a patient and a companion, Richard Gordon, a senator and head of the Philippine Red Cross, said on Twitter.

Appears they were flying a ""VIP"" patient back to Japan...…..

Unfortunately & incredibly frustrating BUT it is likely once AGAIN the govt of Japan is going to let its citiens & residents down with an attempted cover up, hiding what is really going on

And the lack of testing...….criminal negligence almost assuredly resulting in deaths to come!!!

I hope by some miracle I am wrong, SHAME, SHAME on the J-govt!!!

Unfortunately my predictions, same made by many here, are coming true...…..

I say try abe & koike in the HAGUE!!!!

Posted in: Cherry blossom Olympics: Could Tokyo 2020 delay beat the heat? See in context

They are going to have a very tough time re-scheduling spring or summer, certain sports federations WILL be complaining about any choices, some may simply opt out of the ""2020"" games.

Then onto countries, again some are going to complain no matter what dates are considered. Some smaller countries also may opt OUT as they simply cant\don't want to spend the extra $$$ to attend.

These games by no means are a sure thing next year, just saying!

Posted in: U.S. aircraft carrier hit by virus, forcing lockdown at Yokosuka base See in context

I thought the normal quarantine time was at least 14 days, not 48 hours?

Likely to lock things immediately, and then use 48hrs to decide how to ride out the next 12+days of self isolation, which is likely difficult at military installations as not everyone gets a nice house to live in!

I have been slowly stocking up a bit since the beginning of the month, just stopping by a super & picking up canned goods, pasta, sauces & of course beer whiskey, could see this coming miles away.

I didn't buy tons of anything, we should all have this stuff on hand anyway living in the land of earthquakes.....

As for koike & abe & their ilk.....I cant type what I really THINK of those two, people will DIE because they wanted to keep the games on no matter what, EVIL!

This post is for abe!!!

Like I have been posting for a few days now here is what YOU need to do NOW:

1 Eliminate income tax for ALL Japanese for the rest of 2020

2 Eliminate resident tax for ALL Japanese for 2020

3 from Jan 01 2021  if things are getting better, bring them back into play BUT ELIMINATE taxes on ESSENTIALS

THERE DONE!!!

Posted in: Rescheduled Tokyo Olympics may be held before summer 2021: Bach See in context

Good to see the IOC is finally reading my posts:

> Glad the IOC & JOC were FORCED to do the right thing!!!Now the re-scheduling is going to be brutally difficult, the costs, claims & picking time frames for the new games..... will it be next spring or will the idiots in charge stick with July-August.....Expect some serious bumps along the way trying to re-do this!

That said bach is right getting things lined up etc is going to be absolutely BRUTAL. And the costs racked & racking up as I type is going to make these games (even if CANCELLED) the most expensive by a LONG LONG LONG SHOT!!!

I work in logistics & my goal was to still be alive come mid Sept, I don't know if I can take another 12-15mth of this Olympic BS, it is extremely mentally draining & its going to be insane going forward, DAMN I need to win that LOTO6!!!

Said it a number of days ago the GOVT was\is playing roulette with their own people.

And now that the Olympics are officially NOT happening this summer & NOW all the concern....WTF.... the govt's deception is\will get people KILLED & to boot has made men\women on the street carriers that infect family, co-workers, fellow commuters...….and some of these people will die...…

And of course NO ACCOINTABILITY......as is per usual, this could get super ugly, hope not but it might!
