My respect for Kamala Harris just dropped a notch.
Respect and Kamala have never gone hand-in-hand for me in the first place.

Sadly for you, your opinion is wildly out of touch with most Japanese. The Olympics has become "unpalatable" with most. FACT.
FACT People only listen to the polls that they agree with. If you dig further into the poll that you are talking about, more people want the Games delayed than cancelled. This means they still want the Games but not this year.

Can you show us proof that illegal immigrants voted massively in the last election then?
Can you show us proof that most African Americans don't have ID?

You trying to compare forty-four different country leaders to the failures of one incompetent and failed one-term US president shows how pathetic trump truly is.
Oh snap! I didn't realize the U.S. was in Europe and Trump was the President of Europe. Please at least read the title of the article to know the subject of this article.

I could sense there was a lot of excitement here when people woke up and saw a Trump article. The most popular president in U.S. history, that people voted for because they love his policies and not because they hated Trump, gets single digit comments and half of people here stay silent about.

Geez, relax folks. Don’t you think it’s important for Olympians to be able to compete safely? They’re competing for Japan after all. How many are we talking- a couple hundred?
You are talking to people who didn't want the Olympics in the first place and have been complaining since 2013.

Yep. Because economic pressure works.
By taking away money from Black-owned businesses and giving them to white-owned ones. I see!
Also do me a favor and list the reasons why this is worse than the original Jim Crow laws started by Socialist Democrats. Try to persuade me that is "Jim Eagle."

Governor voter suppression who is only Governor because he disenfranchised tens of thousands of predominantly black voters in the last election tries to save himself with yet more voter suppression of urban predominantly black voters.
So the best way to remedy this is moving an economic powerhouse like the MLB All Star Game from one of the Blackest cities in the U.S. with many upon many Black-owned businesses to one of the whitest States in the country. Oh and Colorado requires ID for all voters no matter what color and economic background.

Crazy thing is people who are anti-Tokyo Olympics see no problem with Beijing hosting them in 2022.

That seems to be your implication. What are you actually trying to say then?
For the 3rd time, someone pays with with a counterfeit bill then refuses to give back the item. At that point, the police were called. It would probably be the same in most countries. What Chauvin did was take matter into his own hands and that is his own fault, not every single police officer in the entire country.
Desert Tortoise cooperated with the sales clerk and took the money back without any fuss. If he left the shop with the item and refused to cooperate, I am pretty sure that the police would have been called no matter what his skin color was.

Okay and then that is when the police naturally kneel on your neck 9 natural minutes?
I never said that. Calling the police for someone refusing to give back items that they paid with a fake bill is procedure of a store owner/staff. However, you want to jump to extremes and put words in peoples' mouths.

. She took an older $20 in payment and that was the end of it. She didn't call the police and knowing my disposition if she had I would have argued with the cop. Instead I took the $20 back to the bank where it was examined and determined by them to be genuine. Just to make me happy they gave me a replacement and kept the one I gave them. So no, it wasn't the drug life that killed Mr. Floyd but the racism of too many police officers in the US and elsewhere towards blacks.
He bought cigarettes with the the $20 counterfeit bill then refused to give back the cigarettes. Counterfeit bills are often given to store clerks and they automatically return them without police being called. Paying with one then refusing to give back the merchandise is when the police are naturally called.

Yeah, that might work in Mississippi. Thankfully this trial is in Wisconsin.

Above the article Kyodo is also revealing the couple ID ... is it necessary?
Exactly! Some random politician's blog in Mie Prefecture vs. national news of Kyodo. Most people would have never known if it weren't this article probably printed all over Japan.

Conservatives making a mountain out of a mole hill.
Like those complaining about taking an ID to a polling place? Then cancelling a major sporting event in that State because of it.

I have known a few families here that had 2 sons and were hoping for a daughter next. They ended up having another son so decided to make that one the girl by dressing them up in girls' clothes, growing out the hair, coloring nails, etc.

Part of the fun of going to the Olympics as a fan is visiting places and enjoying the sites. Doesn't North Korea restrict tourists what they are able to see and take pictures of? What fun is that?

Black people in 1968 would kill to live like people do in 2021. Racism and oppression is something preached by the media and Democrats to win elections. As of now, 17 out of 30 of the highest paid athletes in the World are Black. Somebody tell me how much Black athletes and musicians earned in the 60s.

The surge in violence has been linked in part to misplaced blame for the coronavirus and former President Donald Trump’s use of racially charged terms like “Chinese virus.”
The media has to keep holding on to this is another non-white, non-red hat wearing, "non-Republican" demographic person commits anti-Asian hate.

If the penalty is so miniscule and basically just paperwork at the police station, the best thing would be to release his name and picture so the rest of the country knows who the loser is and either break ties with him or avoid him.

And the trial isn’t being held in the South.
Neither were the Rodney King and Eric Garner trials. Both were held in heavily liberal areas of L.A./NY, both had video evidence clear as day and all officers were acquitted.

You think armed, but untrained citizens, would be any match against professional soldiers? You’ve seen Red Dawn one too many times.
When there is zero outside help, you either fend for yourself or become a statistic. The only ones who own guns in Myanmar are the military or privileged. You can just throw out a "tragic" though and move on comfortably as innocent people are executed.

The same people preaching gun control look at Myanmar and just say "tragic" or "tragedy" as the military executes citizens in the streets.

Similar premise on that movie Eden Lake. Not sure if I would confront a group of other men at that time. RIP
