Coup. If Biden is prevented from rightfully taking office I think we will see a fair bit of blood spilt on the streets.

America is now so tin pot it's unbelievable. It has totally lost touch with reality, gone to the dogs. The Republican party has totally cowered, it's now the Trump conspiracy party and the nation has bought generations of Trump family meddling into it's system. You get what you deserve, stupid nation.

I hate wearing suits. Fortunately I only need to wear one so infrequently (once or twice a year) I can just pull out the one I bought for my wedding 11 years ago.

Posted in: GOP to let Trump fight election for weeks despite Biden's win See in context

The GOP has shown in their comments and actions for at least the last year that their election strategy is to undermine the process and steal it through the courts if necessary. They knew all along they wouldn't get the popular vote.

They are now nothing but a bunch of looney conspiracists who are a disgrace to democracy.

A friend bought some round from this shop recently and they're really good, the real deal. The scones are large but the portion of cream and jam they came with that time wasn't enough.

If you want something from someone, you need to be civil and polite to them

Which is exactly why the chickens are coming home to roost with Trump right now.

Posted in: Biden seeks to move quickly and build his administration See in context

they will not move forward until all objections and accusations of fraud are cleared.

That should be pretty easy because it's down to the GOP to prove without doubt there was SYSTEMATIC FRAUD and not just the odd irregularity.

There will always be the odd irregularity when dealing with such huge numbers but systematic fraud would be more obvious, so it will be interesting (and probably quite funny) to see how they try to prove it exists.

Visited the bar there recently and it's very nice. There's now even more greenery inside than in the photo, so each table is quite private. There's a nice chilled vibe up there and excellent cocktails to accompany the cracking view of Tokyo Tower.

I wish I lived in Europe. At least they are taking measures. What is Japan doing? Reducing the number of tests and going about life like nothing is happening. Must be a superior culture thing.

Well you are perfectly welcome to go to Europe and share their misery. My family in the UK wish they were in Japan, 3 of them have lost their jobs and are now locked down for another 4 weeks, so their short term future prospects are very bad. Meanwhile over here we can go to work and use our own common sense to navigate our way through it without threat of being fined or harassed by the police.

I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here at the moment.

When you are preventing official observers from watching the count being carried out, it doesn't look good.

bass4funkToday  01:11 pm JST

Funny how election observers won’t let any independent or GOP witnesses to oversee the counting, why would they block the windows or not allow them to watch? Don’t they want transparency?

International observers haven't been reporting any problems, quite the opposite actually, they have rebuked Trump and his representatives for undermining the process.

The only ones crying about it are GOP observers, as this is part of their election strategy now they know they're on their way down.

Posted in: Trump claims election being 'stolen' from him See in context

Team Trumps strategy is to undermine the electoral system and they have been working on this for a while. They attacked the USPS as they knew most postal votes would be democratic, they are spreading misinformation to undermine their cult members faith in the system and it's clear from the speed in which they launched their litigation this is their strategy.

Trump is the only fraud in this election and he should be carted out of the White House in a straight jacket.

Personally, I haven't really enjoyed going to the cinema in my adulthood, I'd much rather enjoy a film in the comfort of my own home. Cinema sound systems are really loud, my kids were covering their ears at times.

Posted in: Olympic chief says Games cannot be 'marketplace of demonstrations' See in context

I don't have to watch and I don't have to buy the brands that support the athletes. That's fine by me, my life goes on but if I am amongst many thousands of people who stop watching, or stop buying brands that support the athletes, the sport in its professional capacity dies. That is why sports stars should care.

Play the game on the field, express views off the field.

Posted in: Olympic chief says Games cannot be 'marketplace of demonstrations' See in context

Yes! What is so hard for you to understand about that? They are athletes after all. If they excel on the field, you know, doing that thing myself and people want to see them do and that thing their sponsors also pay them to do, they will attract more personal attention to their other platforms where they can bang on about the other stuff that's important to them.

What is so wrong with wanting/hoping that sports stays pure to the sport?

Can none of our objectors explain why the UNPAID athletes shouldn't be able to use the platform that makes a fortune off of them to spread the messages they believe in? There seem to be some vehemently against it, but no one can seem to explain why the UNPAID athletes shouldn't be allowed to do this.

Yes. I want to watch SPORT not political posturing. There's enough of that everywhere else and i'm sick of it. Athletes have social media accounts, they should use those for causes close to their hearts. Keep the sport on the field and politics off it.

All sex offenders should be registered in a database whether they're child molesters or rapists. Neighborhoods should have the right to know about these predators living among them.

I agree but I'm not sure Japan has a long enough scroll of paper.
