"We can do what we want to, but you can't."

Ah . . . wonderful China! Who can forget the fake-o opening ceremony of the last olympics there and the chemicals in baby formula they hid until after the olympics?

'Bout time! A strong step in the right direction, though clearly more needs to be done. Hopefully, lawmakers will step up and do more as time and acceptance of new norms happens.

Mr. Wada?


Um.., the nursery school principal would like to see you in her office.

Gee, whatever for?

Oh, and she has a note from your parents; they said don't bother coming home again.

Agree, she should stick to sports, not politics, not racism, though it does seem she plays her black card or her Japanese card when it's convenient for her. I don't say the Japanese people, overall, much care about her one way or the other; the Japanese media play her up like she's Japanese, but she doesn't live in Japan and doesn't speak Japanese. It's the J media that are playing her up; most Japanese, imo, don't care.

Can't stand her attitude.

I switch channels if they're interviewing her.

Don't need her in the gene pool, anymore. 1st preference: death by hot car in August. 2nd pref.: see pref. #1.

Ha = while John Quincy Adams may have had his opinion about impeachment after an official has left office, he was talking about himself and his wording to that effect was not included in the constitution.

Even as an American, Vietnam Vet, I had no problem with jf going to NV. Anything or anyone who could help reduce if not stop the war would be helpful. However, when she sat down on the AA gun, put on the NV military helmet, and smiled, it was at that exact point that she became a traitor.

Um, the principal would like to see you in his office."

Now having been terminated, he'd like to go home and live with Mom and Dad, but how does he explain it? Hmm...

The truly sad part of the incoming administration and its followers is that some or many of them actually believe the utopian unreality that is the far left and socialism.

Posted in: Tokyo to cut back on athletes at Olympics opening ceremony See in context

Another half-axx attempt to have the Olympics so that $$$ flows into the coffers. Pandemic be damned. So, who decides which athletes will be allowed to march and which ones not? Each has earned the right to be there. I blame Mr. Mori and his yes-man Suga. 70%+ of Japanese don't even want the Olympics there now 'cuz of C-19.

Yup, there's a he-man for ya. But, fear not, Kobayashi, the so-called Japanese justice system will give him a medium slap on the wrist and make him promise not to do it again.

There; that should fix everything...

Posted in: Sumo wrestler quits, saying his coronavirus fears were ignored See in context

Totally ditto Paul. Takanohana saw the -need- for the sumo world to not give up their values, but adapt to Japan as it is today. The association done him wrong!

With exceptions, young people in Japan today do not care about sumo nor watch it

I remember when we saw good matches. By majority, most today are tsuppari/oshizumo. Boring. Yotsuzumo is sooo much better.

The bouts should be in the evening; at least the juryo and makenouchi.

Posted in: Int'l fans thank pop group Arashi as it starts hiatus See in context

The ploys for comebacks do sound likely. At the same time, the Arashi leader has said (and it shows when we see him on TV) he's 38 and tired of the schedule, etc.; it's wearing him down. We enjoy the Arashi Vs show, though we could do without all the banal kidding around. ~sigh~.

Ref. boy or girl groups. Some, in Japan and worldwide, have been successful. Most, however, are talent-l-e-s-s dress uppers who wouldn't rate even one bong on the Nodojima show. Most cause me to gag.

Mary Ann (Dawn) was dreamy to those of us in our teenage years in the 60's. Always thought she was sexier than Ginger (Tina Louise). RIP Dawn!!!

Posted in: Activist, champion: Naomi Osaka selected AP Female Athlete of Year See in context

Funny the Japanese media makes such a fuss about Naomi, when the Japanese people pretty much don't give a rat's behind. She knows next to nothing about Japanese and her -only- insight into Japanese people is through her mother and the gabillions-en the sponsors pay. Doesn't speak Japanese, either.

The issue is simple: sports is sports and politics is politics. The t'wain should never mix. (Notice I didn't say they can't have their own opinion, like any/every one else. Operative word there was "mix".)

Posted in: Put down the soy sauce ... We try a new way to season your sushi See in context

Admittedly, I'm a traditionalist, but since I've had matchajio on tempura (and loved it), I'd try it on nigirizushi, too. Always willing to try something new . . . except for fusion sushi, like hamburger bites on top of the rice, etc. B-l-e-a-h !!!!!

Suggest an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth. Put him in a small building and set it afire with kerosene (gasoline is too quick). Let one of the parents light it.

Posted in: U.S. Olympic officials back athletes' right to protest at Tokyo Olympics See in context

"..can be a leading force for global good, and we are proud to advocate for the advancing opportunities and pathways for respectful athlete expression within our sports community,"

Mumbo-jumbo for "We're weak managers and fear the US athletes might pull out."

Again, Keep personal agendas out of the Olympics.

All that having been said, the Olympics has, for years, been political and money-driven. Oh yeah, and I think there are some sports involved, too...

I was in h.s. when the Beatles came out and certainly I, like most others, enjoyed their music. However, it seems to me that giving concerts today, 58 years later is like resting on your laurels. Songwriting? Yes, Paul still has it. Singing, by him or Ringo . . . meh.

Posted in: Tokyo: A wonder of the modern world fed by its 'konbini' See in context

My first question was, "Has George LLoyd ever been to Tokyo?" The article is full of misinformation and based on the Japan Good - Other Places Bad concept, a clear bias of this 'writer'.

"traffic jams are so unusual they make the evening news" Huh??? What planet does Lloyd live on?

"everything is delivered by road." The heavy traffic in/around Tokyo is, IMO, mainly caused by the zillions of trucks on the roads, polluting the air. Yes, cars cause some of it, but the trucks choke not only the roads, but also the air.

This article should have been posted under Fiction.

Ditto'ing some other comments... Yes, racism and bullying exist in all countries. No, we will never be totally rid of it. Yes, we can and are making improvements, thankfully. Discussion will move the needle forward; violence, such as that in the States, will move it backward.

I crossed Nike off my list when they adopted their boy Kaepernick as their spokesperson. Threw any nike wear I had in the trash, where it belongs.

Posted in: Bill submitted to recognize users of donated eggs, sperm as parents See in context

Families, siblings, etc., aside, if one donates eggs or sperm to an egg or sperm bank, for money, then they don't want to be found to be the parent and assume financial obligations. Also, perhaps you're familiar with the term "careful what you ask for".

"Uh yeah, I pursued knowing who the donor was and found out my dad's a drunk, bedraggled, heroin user who lives under a bridge on the Tama River, who has never worked and spent the Y1000 he got for his "donation" on cheap wine."

Gosh, who wouldn't be proud...
