I wish I had an opinion about Covid that I was confident about. I do not. However, I am absolutely confident that I do not have confidence in the government's publicly expressed opinions.

So the supply problem has been fixed? I remember just a short while ago that the government was discouraging people and slowing down reservations as supply was running low. Possibly delaying second shots. Now it seems that the issue is public reluctance. Seems like gaslighting.

I don't understand. I thought they were running low on supply. This is very confusing.

Ya, I understand how they feel.
Athletes = good.
Government contempt towards the public = bad.

I heard vaccines would have helped.

3 weeks hunger strike in this weather is a long time. I'm surprised the police haven't hauled him off citing Olympic security concerns.

Screw you guys. Summer is here, but just keep the kids at home and shut up. In think there has been obvious contemptful behavior towards the public. One example is backing up traffic for almost an hour in the Aqualine heading towards Tokyo, on purpose. The toll gate after the tunnel was not for ETC only, the other one was closed, and therefore causing a huge back-up for everyone. Whether you were going to Yokohama, Kawasaki or Tokyo, you would be backed-up by this obvious traffic-jamming tactic. Then they blocked off the Rainbow bridge periodically. Terrible treatment.

Seems nice idea. I like some of the costumes very much. Halloween seems to be very healthy (not the candy).

I think the marathon should be around Fuji-san, that would be beautiful. Maybe soccer can be in Osaka or somewhere.

Gore should have fought harder. If he had been president we would not be in the mess that we are in.

I hope UNESCO doesn't need much money. Seems many countries are not paying UNESCO. Was it Israel a few weeks ago that decided to withhold dues?

I think stabbing fellow students is bad even if he was teased.

I recently watched the documentary "13th". I would much rather deal with the Japanese than the Americans. OMG the US Justice System is a complete travesty. "Cash for Kids"?. Ya...Japan has a problem.

Most legal systems are extremely faulty. The USA has a 97% plea bargaining rate which means that many people admit to crimes they did not commit from fear of very harsh penalties if convicted. In Japan the lawyers cannot help you, in the US if you do not have money then the lawyers cannot help you. I hope Japan can improve their justice system, however I would still pick it over most others as is.

I think Hillary Clinton will be OK as president. Most modern day candidates weren't around long enough nor exposed enough in national politics to be dragged through the mud like Hillary has been. She is probably not as bad as they make her out to be and she has some very relevant experience. We have had back-to-back 2-term presidents with hardly any experience and the painful consequences are plain to see.

Bla bla bla. They tried to make everyone contract workers in North America years ago, it failed. Look at the state of policing and tell me contract workers are a good idea. Predictions of the future should be based on data, this is based on stupid.

Nobody wants to go to Narita, it's a travel in itself. Huge boring airport. Expand Haneda and close Narita.
