Posted in: Fukushima joins other Olympic venues in barring fans See in context

Not looking forward to the consumption tax rate going up from 10% to 12% to pay for this folly of an event. Luckily, the IOC will still receive it's $350 million USD television rights payment for the Olympics taking place and sharing nothing with Japan to offset the costs.

Posted in: Things starting to stir at Tokyo Olympic venues See in context

This will be cancelled or Japan will be embarrassed by being the host country and only participant. Corona will be in wave 5 by opening ceremony. Perhaps do the Olympics on a Zoom call!

Posted in: UK eyes testing COVID-19 passports at mass gatherings See in context

A better idea than covid passports is a implanted microchip. No need to carry anything with you as it is always there and can be updated to carry emergency information, passport information, medical history, and any restrictions, All authorizations seamlessly carried and controlled by the governmental authorities.

Posted in: Naomi Osaka raises voice against anti-Asian hate crimes See in context

I guess she needs to look into the mirror as 85% of asian hate crimes are done by BLACKS. Maybe she should complain to the BLM movement.

Posted in: Barring fans from abroad for Tokyo Olympics creates many questions See in context

IOC receives all of it's broadcast TV rights money (billions), but the Japanese tax payer will have to carry the burden of the costs to host the games? What idiot government official agreed to this deal? NO MORE TAX MONEY FOR THE OLYMPICS!

Posted in: Fans from abroad unlikely for postponed Tokyo Olympics See in context

Why more tax money for this boondoggle? Without foreign visitors the Japanese tax payer will foot the bill for the Olympics. CANCEL the Olympics or IOC pay for the cost!

The organizing committee has budgeted income of $800 million from ticket sales. That shortfall will have to be made up by Japanese government entities.

This aircraft can respond quickly and support any of Japan's natural disasters and can land anywhere. Can be in Kyushu from Chiba quickly. JSDF does more to support natural disasters than anything else!

Posted in: Bolton memoir raises concern over Japan alliance if Trump re-elected See in context

Japan needs to pay its' fair share or the US should pull out. When China takes parts of the Ryukyu chain islands they state are historically theirs, don't call the US for help. China is waiting for this day whether it's 10 or 50 years.
