During the war he inspired no one and avoided the draft just like Trump while millions fought.
To be fair we shouldn't have gone into a hot war with Germany. Japan, yes, because they attacked us.

Shouldn't they really be after Netanyahu? It was his idea in the first place; the US is merely fighting a proxy war with Iran on Israel's benefit.

REALLY???? My son who is mixed Japanese is struggling in the elementary school because of me and has since grade 1 because I am a single mother. I have been begging for extra help for him and I MEAN nobody wants to give him that help at the school. With my income get him a private juku teacher once a week its expensive and so on help my son and others who are in this position before helping, outsiders. I stayed here so my son could grow up knowing his father's culture even if father chose not to be part of his life I did not want him to grow up not knowing. I know many other mothers like myself in the same boat go back make less money and struggle and or stay make a better income and struggle there is no win/win.
I'm sorry to hear that.
But, knowing what we know, I think any foreigner who actually marries and has children with a Japanese person has to be nuts. Date? Sure. But marriage? No way.

As for the thinkers and writers, there was Ptahotep, long before your lads. There's plenty of African philosophers and scholars like Yacob and Petros who wrote about harmony and other topics beyond the pillaging white man's ken.
You guys are starting to sound like the 12 Tribes nuts.
Sorry but no. The ancient Egyptians died off and had no great philosophical or metaphysical understanding that we know. The ancient Indians certainly did, and China had great thinkers such as Lao Tzu, who ironically is neglected in favor of the Vogon known as Confucius.
That's just the way things are; we can't take credit for the past, nor apologize for it. The dice fell where they fell. The important thing is to not cast aside thousands of years of thought and civilization to appease wokeness.

This new narrative that "black people built America" is tiring in its duplicity.
Yes, slave labor was used.
However, the philosophy of governance and the American experiment was English and European, with some influence taken from Native American governance as well. No African country has the historical background to create a country like America. They have no patrimony of Aristotle, Plato, Heraclitus, Locke, Hobbes, Paine, and the Founding Fathers. We tried to create one there, Liberia, and it was a total failure.

Trump-funded white-supremacist organizations pretending to be antifa as a false flag operation.
You have gone way off the deep end.
Look at the mugshots of the Antifa who were arrested.
Look at their skinny wrists and scrawny legs.
Those are not white supremacists.

Things can be repaired and rebuilt
What if your small business, which was already doing poorly because of coronavirus, was smashed up and looted? Bear in mind that insurance doesn't cover rioting. What if that meant the end of your business?
People who say such things have never started or run a business in their life.

That'll teach Target and Auto Zone to stop killing people! Oh wait.
Why aren't the rioters smashing up police stations?
Low-class people use this situations as excuses to loot. Imagine if your business was smashed up and looted because of something some cop did? Are you legally allowed to pepper looters with buckshot in Minn.?

But that’s Biden’s problem, he can’t, sooner or later he has to come out and fight and Jill can’t hold his hand and Trump will pile-drive Biden, so I have no idea what the Dems will do or what sorcerer they’ll conjure up to help Biden, but he’s in trouble.
The debates will be straight-up juicy.

Really? I've always found them the more fun, less uptight members of Japanese society myself.
That's the stereotype that they have spread, that they're all comedians, but IME they have this odd split between being irreverent and rude.
There's a great article online from the '80s or '90s that goes into how Osakans used be seen as vindictive and snobbish because they felt that Kansai used to be the real capitol of Japan and should still be (like some sort of weird, wannabe Kyotoites), not Tokyo.

I've been taking precautions seriously since February: wearing a mask at all times when I go outside, washing my hands with soap, using alcohol spray, keeping social distancing.
But at the same time I wonder if this pandemic is even real or if it's just another government power grab, the same way that the Patriot Act was.

No kidding they weren't there; this isn't about them. It's about Korea trying to stick it to Japan in a childish way and to extort money for corrupt politicians and faux concern groups.

Pelosi's trash talking game is weak as; calling someone "morbidly obese" is some textbook diss that some goody-two-shoes like Elizabeth Warren would say.
If she wanted to get him she'd make a fat joke like "Trump is so fat that he sat on a quarter and a booger came out of George Washington's nose. That fatso wakes up in sections. When he passes the TV, he misses 3 episodes of Tiger King. When he goes to bed, his gut gets there 10 minutes before he does. The only 'A' he got in school was in lunch. When he went to Japan and watched sumo, they gave him a trophy. His belt loops have mile markers, and when he rubs his legs together you can smell bacon. When he finally leaves office they'll need a crane just to get him out."
But even if she cracked anything good, we all know her delivery is whack too.

Imagine the stench!
It's not just the stench; if they're urinating all over the house then the home will be filled with so much ammonia that you can't see or breathe. If you watch shows like Animal Cops, they sometimes clear out a houses with hundreds of cats and need to wear hazmat suits just to go inside.
