Posted in: Suga says no link between Olympics and virus surge See in context

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.

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.

Posted in: Suga, Koike agree Olympics going 'very smoothly' See in context

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.

Good luck to him. Good luck to everyone. I do not appreciate the contemptful increase in highway fees and reserved Olympic lanes. I am now anti-Olympics.

China snubbed President Obama horribly during his arrival at the G20 summit this year. I applaud Mr. Trump for snubbing them back.

Each photo of them is the same, father and son are the center while the ladies happily observe. To me this is misogyny. Subtle? Maybe. Just like Japanese TV.

The reality is very bad. Dentsu is bad. The people at Dentsu are bad. I know this. It is hateful and I fear for any new graduate who joins them.

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

Posted in: Do you think some events at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics should be held in other parts of Japan to cut back on costs, which Tokyo Gov Yuriko Koike is now considering? See in context

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

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?

Posted in: 'Japan: Guilty Until Proven Innocent' documentary shines light on controversial legal system See in context

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.

Posted in: 'Japan: Guilty Until Proven Innocent' documentary shines light on controversial legal system See in context

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.

Posted in: Clinton tears into Trump on taxes See in context

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.

Posted in: By 2030, there will be no full-time employees, report speculates See in context

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.
