Posted in: White House mum on whether Biden plans to attend Tokyo Olympics See in context

He wont be coming even if the games go ahead, he would face a TON of flak from not just the usual repubs but the US public as well!!

Plus nations are waiting to see if the Japan Games start taking political hits, like if China bails or something, plus there are HUGE costs in getting people & gear to Japan & if\when canceled nations are trying to reduce lost costs as much as possible.....

Its a complete mess for a million reasons, it needs to be shelved or a lot of people are going to get sick not just in Japan but overseas as well....just insane really.

A lot of these new corporate mantra's seem to be more of a CYA thing. Companies are trying to avoid future bad press & situations, essentially a lot of this stuff are preventative measures that have to deal with the sad woke world that is around us.

Posted in: Olympics 'difficult' after virus spikes, Japan medical group warns See in context

Medical workers, I believe the games need at least 10,000 of them, are all UN-paid for games related work, so they should start letting TOCOG know that they decided to no longer ""volunteer""

Posted in: Amazon warehouse workers reject union bid in Alabama See in context

In the beginning, unions provide a great benefit to the workers. Collective bargaining has more leverage than individuals.

However, over time, union leaders provide a great benefit to themselves and not to the workers. This phenomena is not exclusive to unions. It happens to all organizations, for profit, non-profit, local, state, and federal governments.

Unless union workers pay close attention to their unions, workers will end up paying dues and not getting their money's worth.

Fair enough, but the facts are clear with current capitalism, the vast profits are sucked upwards to top management, workers down at the bottom have had wages stagnate now for a good 3-4decades & counting. Upper management is not so slowly DESTROYING the middle classes all around the world, they are literally killing their Golden Goose, their markets!

Posted in: Gov't to release Fukushima nuclear plant water into sea despite fishermen's objection See in context

I think many agree nuclear power MUST be phased out, its nowhere near safe in the short or long term.

As I have been saying since 2011 this water stored at Fukushima WILL REPEAT WILL end up in the ocean at some point, either man will release it or Mother Nature WILL, make no mistake, the water cycle is UNSTOPABLE in the long term.

Note quote below:

> The Geneva-based body's Director General Rafael Grossi, during his visit to the Fukushima complex in February, said it is a common way to release water at nuclear power plants, even when they are not in emergency situations.

So these kinds of releases have been occurring around the world as a matter of course, the only difference will be scale & some concentration of isotopes etc.

There is NO easy answer BUT as I said this water now or in the future WILL be released one way or another

Tohoku fishermen etc will suffer bad business no matter if the water is stored or released

Im happy Suga san is willing to do something.

...I got news for you, building another agency blah blah is NOT doing ANYTHING!

It is setting up another trough for political parasites to feed & suck BLOOD out of!!

There are already plenty of ministries, agencies, far too many in fact, if the simply did their JOBS, then children would ALREADY be taken care of, rinse & repeat for a great many other societal ills here

“Godzilla vs. Kong,” the only creature feature to dare wide release in some time, is a rock ‘em-sock 'em monster-movie revival with all the requisite explosions, inane plot twists and skyscraper smashing to satisfy most lovers of gigantic amphibians

Oh and from a herp enthusiast please learn the difference between reptile & amphibian...... I wont get into the rest of the writers crap that follows the above!
