They should attack selfish greedy multinational companies, not hospitals.

AXA is a multinational company.

How is it that places in other ‘developed’ countries can give the vaccine to walk-ins with no appointment necessary and then see them on their way with cash vouchers?

Magic that doesn’t work in Japan?

Also, you demonstrated in the second paragraph that the detention center officials are responsible for her death.

One problem with that is ... are they? The psychiatrist made his recommendation on the 4th. The detention center is a bureaucracy. It doesn't move immediately, and nothing in this article tells me the psychiatrist put any great stress on urgency.

Somewhere between the 4th and the 5th, they decided she had esophagitis and carted her to hospital. I assume the person who made the initial diagnosis of esophagitis was, if not a fully-rated doctor, at least someone with some medical training.

Your second paragraph defeats the argument in your first paragraph.

Shinzo's kid brother Kishi had time to tweet his support for Israel's mass child murder over the weekend but no time to oversee this implementation of the vaccination program correctly. Yeah, right.

It pays to be the grandchild of a war criminal here.

The shivklingly low rate of vaccinations this late in the game is far more embarrassing than the booking system not being up to par.

They're describing her as Nikkei not Japanese. They're writing her name in katakana instead of as 井上結衣. 

Thanks for the info. If she is Nikkei, I wonder what non-English speaking country she is from. The article said she used a Japanese interpreter to speak to police.

Side note: If you are ever arrested in the US, you should only say the following, “I am invoking my fifth amendment right to remain silent and my sixth amendment right to an attorney.” These rights apply to any person in the US.

I said "A great extent her fault", not fully her fault.

What percentage of fault do you ascribe to the people who ignored the medical professionals?

If you die in prison, depending on how you died, the prison officials may or may not be at fault, but unless you are a political prisoner or the victim of a miscarriage of justice, you are responsible for putting yourself in prison in the first place.

When you die whilst in detention because the people detaining you ignored a medical professionals advice, it is the fault of the detention center officials.

Yeah, because the smart people know that scientists knew all the details of how the virus worked the day after it was discovered, and NEVER should have changed their advice as there was never any new information to be discovered through research over time, right?

Correct. You clearly know how science works. s/

You’re the one that brought it up. Then if you don’t agree with other opposing viewpoints then please don’t make that kind of a statement if you think one side will just sit there and not challenge that ludicrous position.

You are arguing with facts that Zichi presented, not Zichi’s opinion.

"Arsenal of Democracy", what an ironic term. He must be referring to all those missiles and bombs used to spread democracy around the world.

Are you claiming they wars have never brought democracy to any country?

No, he doesn’t. That’s not even align all inference of the quote to which you replied.

Liberal media in Israel is also apparently worse and even more dishonest than in the US and has been for a very long time.

Because it reported facts regarding Netanyahu’s lack of popularity?

Not evil because of who they are, evil because of their political motives in trying to oust an ultra-conservative leader. Again, don’t conflate the two. We don’t live in a theoretical world.

He did, he has the HD and boy the Feds are once again going to screw this up royally the way they did with Trump and all the others, Rudy is smiling for sure. Here we go again.

Sure he does. Rudy is just sitting in the evidence he has on Hunter Biden until the perfect time to release it and upset Joe Biden’s election chances. Makes perfect sense. Thanks for the cite to the evidence supporting your assertion.

So basically you are implying the average person doesn’t have access to books or the internet? In other words only liberals are blessed with aces to these technologies? Interesting….

This isn’t a logical inference from the post to which you are replying.

Actually not, dismembering a full term human and wearing a mask because it impedes on your breathing are two totally different situations.

The vast majority of abortions are not “late term,” which you do emotionally described, so your analysis here is way off. Also, the vast majority of people do not have their breathing impeded by a mask; it’s actual quite rare, so your analysis is even further off.

Or, I guess Biden could do something but there is little chance of that.

What would you have Biden do that he’s not already doing? He’s sent an envoy and signaled the US is standing by, ready to help if both parties want a ceasefire.

Hamas spends all of the money they get on missiles and tunnels and terrorism.

Demonstrably false. Hamas provide social services to the people of Gaza, which is why it was put into power in a free and fair election.

Does Hamas commit acts of terrorism? Yes, it does. So does Israel, the US, et al.

Wishma's death is tragic, but the article also suggests it is to a great extent her fault.

She forced the immigration detention authorities to ignore the advice of medical professionals? That’s a unique interpretation of the article.

Whenever someone is detained, that person’s wellbeing becomes the responsibility of the jailers.
