She was a beautiful singer in the 1970s. Australia’s most famous.

This is a case of Japanese saying what they don’t really believe to be true. That is tatemae. Japanese can do it. Westerners cannot do it - If Westerners say something, they’ve a pressure to actually believe it. That’s why political correctness is not as dangerous in Japan as it is in the US, for example.
It’s still disgusting, though.

Oh yeah. And let’s get more black sumo wrestlers into sumo in Japanese tournaments. And let’s have street demos until they are represented ( even if they aren’t really interested!)

Yeah, hype it up. Scare people in case they get happy.
In Canada news ( also a country with low incidence), they like to show an interview with a person in a hospital warning people. I’ve never once seen an article interviewing someone who has it explaining how they’re making their symptoms better and keeping their chin up.

The continued destruction of the economy and of small business around the world.
By the pandemic? No! By the people who are handling the situation. Handling our lives. And if you criticize, they’ll say you’re only interested in money - as if you were sitting around counting banknotes - and not about people’s families and livelihoods being destroyed.

Average age of members is 66?
That’s just middle age in Japan.

From being a great movie maker, Spike Lee went to total self-consumption by his anti-white racism. I’m sorry. I really did enjoy his movies - She’s Gotta Have It, Do The Right Thing and others. Sad.

Yes. It’s so disgusting. No surprise Tom Hanks can get into Queensland to “complete a film” ($) while ordinary people can’t. We know where this is going. You leaders are disgusting.

Further to my above post:
And this number of COVID deaths is not permanent. It will decrease or disappear someday. However, the other deaths are from causes that will not disappear, even though there are many things which could be done to decrease them. But nobody complains about it.
So get over yourselves and live your life and let others live theirs as they want to.

There would have been 200,000 dead anyway. It’s the nature of dynamic America to have high numbers in its 335,000,000. Ask yourself if Biden could do anything to lower deaths/day. Anything?
Anyway, how many people die every day in America? You don’t know. Well, I’ll tell you. Over 6,000. We’ve lived with losing 6,000 a day up to now. Well, so now it’s 7. And probably many of those are actually dying from their original ailment anyway, but happened to be COVID positive at death.

She was the very classy tough-sexy secret agent in The Avengers with the older, crispy but humorous agent John Steed.
She just called him, “Steed”
He called her, “ Mrs. Peel”.
I liked that.

Having fun spreads the virus. So bars etc. are out.
Laughing spreads the virus. So, socializing is out.
Mask covers my smile. That’s half communication. They can’t cover the eyes. Well, they could force goggles, I guess.
The living dead.
But online life supporting mega-billionaires.

I said “No” to two men in a car that pulled up beside me. I was a boy of 6 years old. I almost went, but I knew something was wrong. And in broad daylight.
That’s a long time ago. I sometimes wonder what would have happened.

Why do they put the ages of the two people? Because they want you to be more enraged because the man is much older?

Yes. Old Japanese men who go up on the roof to fix tiles in a typhoon: I would like them to get less news coverage. And little children who die from parental neglect should get MORE coverage. That should REALLY be big news.
JMA online weather site: This is the best weather information site that I have seen anywhere. I’m from North America. Nothing there is as good as this site. Too bad it’s only national. I wish it were for all countries worldwide.

Stories of neglectful single mothers, out drinking, slaves to their obnoxious new boyfriends. Their little kids dying as a result.
This is happening in Japan all the time. I’m so disgusted. DISGUSTED! And we have to hear that Japan is such a safe country, but why do these crimes go on all the time!
Somebody, DO something! This is so sickening.

Stay safe, everyone.
Typhoon is coming to Kyushu. They’ve had typhoons lots of times before, but need reminders to stay safe.
And in case, you’re thinking of going out in the storm, please remember - stay safe.
And coronavirus is around and you may forget about that.
So, I just want to tell everyone one thing.

Re: “stay safe”
People don’t resent this. It’s just that it’s such an obvious thing. They are not little children.
Also, people are irritated by the constant “stay safe” message associated with the virus.

Preparedness is not bias. Of course, with 1) the high incidence of black crime, and 2) the politics and violent protesting associated with it, they HAVE to consider the ramifications. They are forced to.
But - again - return to the fundamental problem: Why do black men commit so much crime? And other black people are usually the victims - Sometimes helpless, elderly black people alone in their apartments or walking. Do you care nothing about them?

No, they are obviously being polite and patient. Check it. Can’t be faked and rehearsed. Check the videos on YouTube.
Look, it all starts with this: Blacks are far more likely %-wise, to commit crime. I know it. You know it. I don’t know if you’re black or white, but you know it. Jesse Jackson knows it. He said how he’s afraid on a street with black men possibly following him.
Start with that fact. All the problems stem from that and people’s refusal to admit what they know.

Wow, so sad. Naomi Osaka was so simple and “ Japanese” in deferring away from controversy. But they got to her. Expect her head to be the size of a tennis court within a year, That’s what happens to the egos of celebrities that “speak out“. And don’t talk about how she’s “free” and “has the right”. The question you should ask is if she’s free to NOT speak out.
I liked Naomi. And a great talent. But - to be honest - not what you’d call a very smart girl.

In nearly all the “famous” shootings of blacks by white police, it starts with the white cop trying as much as possible to be patient and polite. Then the black guy flips out and trouble follows. Check the famous cases of traffic stops. Or the guy killed in Atlanta who parked in a drive-through zone. The cops are really polite.
However, I’ve seen cases where they were not. And that was when white guys were killed by the cops.

In the body cam recordings I’ve seen, police are always seen as polite to blacks unless approaching known criminal - despite their treatment by protestors.
As far as being more ready for problems if stopping Blacks, that’s quite likely. But who’s responsible for that? High black crime, high likelihood Blacks will flee ( usually because already have criminal record on file).
You just proved the point yourself.

“Militias” have to take action if governors and mayors too weak to control their streets. Police have been made inactive so the rioters can surround and beat up any white person walking down the street in downtown Portland who’s not Antifa. Of course Trump has to take action on that.

Yes, to above comment. This topic should stay out of sports - although I think it’s already too late. Also, this article is lacking examples of what the programming here is about.
