Posted in: Alpine tourists ski amid brown hillsides See in context

California needs to send some snow their way. Some areas have already surpassed last year's totals.

I think it's a pattern, though. When the U.S. is dry and warm, Europe gets buried and vice versa.

They're acting like the playground bully that got punched in the face and doesn't want to play anymore.

Posted in: Asian tourist hubs ready for Chinese influx See in context

If China simply educated their people about respecting other cultures, they would be more welcomed around the world. Japan's government should work with China on some kind of educational outreach program. I get the impression that those in Japan's travel industry hate dealing with Chinese tourists.

How is this different from US travelers? US travelers are required to show a negative PCR test or proof of three shots.

Isn’t Japan vaxxed and masked at almost 100%? Try exercise, diet, and enjoying life. Constant fear is bad for your health.

IRS should investigate the members of Congress. It's amazing how many of them become rich after being elected. Maybe it's just a coincidence?

Is there any doubt at this point that China is trying to make life hell for its people?

Posted in: New UK PM Sunak visits Kyiv; pledges support See in context

That didn’t take long. Sunak is eager to donate billions, like his American counterparts. Because he believes in liberating Ukraine, of course.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. urging more students to study in each other's countries See in context


Sad, but true. Stay awake from the schools trying to create woke soldiers. So, that includes pretty much the West and East Coasts. They're far too dangerous anyway. Some places in the Midwest are fine, though stay away from Chicago. The South is your best bet. They don't see too many Japanese, but they're the friendliest people once you get to know them.

Posted in: Japan's loosening of COVID-19 entry restrictions may keep citizens wearing masks See in context


Agree. Japan got hit hard despite no tourists and universal vaccination and mask use.

Remember "follow the science"? Funny, no one mentions it now. Mask use indoors has little, if any, effect- they're totally useless outdoors.

Posted in: GOP makes push to weaken Democrats' grip on Texas border See in context

Proof is in the pudding. Democratic cities are riddled with crime and homelessness and people are fleeing California and New York. Biden's policies have taken hold and when they bring up Trump, they are grasping for straws.

2 million border crossers, many flown all over the country. Not sure why we should feel sorry for New York.

Posted in: Japan weighs plan for ban on hotel guests without masks: report See in context

How exactly have masks (and vaccines) helped Japan? It's not like Japan is a shining example of controlling COVID.

Nevertheless, I don't think wearing them indoors or on the train is a big deal.

If life is so bad for them in Japan, they could always move to China or Russia instead. My guess is they're staying put.

Negative test works as well.

Posted in: Japan's total COVID cases top 20 mil since start of pandemic See in context

CDC estimates 75% of Americans have had COVID. With Japanese regularly coming into close contact with each other, I’m sure a lot more than 20 million have caught it.

So, Abe had a "connection" to an organization that his guy held a grudge against? That's the worst excuse for an assassination I've ever heard.

Posted in: Abe assassination raises questions about security for VIPs in Japan See in context

There basically was no security. The shooter got within a few yards of Abe. The first shot missed and he had three seconds to gather himself for the second shot, which allegedly killed Abe.

Abe was able to form deep, lasting relationships with so many world leaders. He was a giant for Japan and democracy and his legacy will live on.

You're right, lockdowns and border closures are clearly not health related, but why would China or Japan want to prolong it? Control? External threats?
