Make a fool of me once, you're bad. Make a fool of me twice, my bad.

WHO, who should be primarily focused on people's health, lost credibility when they played China's game. So, WHO may have initially fooled a lot of folks, but - I - won't believe anything they have to say ref: covid-19.

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

Keep the Olympics, the Olympics. (Yes, I realize they're not the Olympics of yesteryear, but introducing more, and in the case of racial protests at the Olympics .. a negative, in no way improves them nor the lives of the majority of viewers and other participants. At best, a minute number of same feel some justification of their racial viewpoint and that overtakes their interest, if there ever was any, in the Olympic spirit and games involved.) Just as I strongly and firmly believe in my own opinion, I equally believe in the right of others to theirs. But, create your own venue and don't disparage the experience of the majority of viewers and athletes who want the Olympics to just be the Olympics.

Posted in: The U.S. military may be having trouble controlling its pilots. The Japanese government should obtain evidence such as on-site photos and assert more strongly that their flights are causing a nuisance. See in context

Ito-sensei has drunk the koolaid and is now peppering the media/populace with conjecture and fear mongering (pilots out of control; crashing; etc.). It's ok; he's allowed his opinion, but I think it's reckless to make unproven accusations.

Posted in: U.S. coronavirus aid prospects uncertain after Trump blasts Democrats See in context

Pelosi is doing her best to not let a deal pass before the election. Never mind that a deal based on stimulus would benefit those working for a living, it would look bad for the Dems, and -that's- what it's about. Plus, how can the Dems consider the inflated bill they're asking for, which includes items having nothing to do with stimulating the economy?

"past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior."

So . . . we're headed, if Joe wins, for 4 years of his not having an original thought, being at the beck and call of liberal socialists, and smelling young girls' hair. Further, Xi and Putin will make mincemeat of him.

Posted in: Japanese elementary teacher busted for hiding students’ shoes; writing 'die' on their belongings See in context

Revoke his teaching license/certificate and prosecute the vandalism charge. Childish only begins to describe him, 'cuz if he takes out his inability to get along with other teachers on kids, his misplaced anger makes him dangerous.

Posted in: 6 doctors referred to prosecutors over death of 2-year-old boy in 2014 See in context

This is clearly a case of the doctors putting their names on a patient's karute (med. chart), but not taking an active enough role is his/her care. Negligence, and they should be prosecuted.

I found Japanese medical care to be haphazard; sometimes it was spot on, other times, the 'doctor' had no clue, though this appears to be true elsewhere, as well.

Posted in: Win the vote but still lose? Behold the U.S. Electoral College See in context

The electoral college is a foundational pillar of democratic principles established by the states in a republic, as in the -united states-. It ensures, to the degree possible, that there is a fairness of equal say in government by a wide spectrum citizens; thus, an election is not decided by states with dense populations nor by city states, such as Atlanta, Ga, Chicago, il, and NYC, NY with politic-centric views, be they left or right.

Did Japan (along with most if not all countries) do wrongs during WWII? Yes.

But, soap operas have nothing on this story . . . the never-ending story of no apology nor amount of $$$ will be enough. All SK has to do is parade another victim in a wheelchair out and the tragedy play begins anew.

While that's sad, what is amusing is reading the lunatic fringe comments by some. Makes my day. Thanks for the sad laugh CitizenSmith, Luddite, Peter14, and Richard Gallager.

His lawyer lamely explains why he shoved the officer... like what? It's Ok?

The judge should have been charged with obstructing the duties of a police officer and spent a night in jail. Anybody else, and they'd have been arrested and charged. Ditto HonestDictator.

Posted in: Mom who went drinking all night indicted over deaths of daughters left in car See in context

Odd .. the Japanese law/police approach to such cases. I went shopping at a supermarket one evening with parking in front of the store. Saw a baby and a toddler in the car next to mine; no parent(s) in sight. Went to report it to the koban across the street, only to be told there's no crime unless something happens to the kids. ??? Nothing like closing the barn door after the horses have gotten out.

Posted in: Speaking positively about marijuana online leads to arrest of Japanese man and woman See in context

Marijuana may or may not be "worse than tobacco or alcohol", depends on what you're measuring and what the outcomes are. It very often is a gateway drug.

Effect of using marijuana: it takes you 10 seconds longer to respond to, "Hey, stupid," but then, the same can be said about heavy drinkers...

News reports on an issue like this should use the term "biological mother" for subhumans like this one. She is no mother in the traditional sense.

I definitely favor "an eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth."

Posted in: Historic Kyoto green tea specialists reveal Uji matcha shaved ice parfaits for summer See in context

How I wish I could be back in Japan, where desserts, drinks, kakigori, etc makers all try out different flavors. Here in the States, it's rather boring, as the different companies stick to their tried-and-true stuff, with little variation. Seems like these matcha desserts are currently only in Kyoto, but if you're looking for something similarly delicious, go to First Kitchen and get their matcha kintoki float. Ymmmmm

Posted in: Are you OK with wearing a mask when you are out and about as a measure to protect yourself against the coronavirus? See in context

@LDY.

Me thinks you doth protest too much.

Isn't that the worst of sins? Maybe Japan should also implement a law like the one from Hong Kong so that people like me do not protest so much, because protesting is bad.

Not familiar with Shakespeare, eh? Has nothing to do with protests like in HK/elsewhere. It means you're trying very hard to prove to others and to yourself a point that nearly no one else believes. It carries the underlying meaning that your point may very well not hold water, and by extension, disingenuous.
