Posted in: Putin says Russia ready to continue peace treaty talks with Japan See in context

Vladamir is a snake oil salesman. He will sell the sizzle but not the steak. He is gaming the Japanese bureaucratic leaders for their Ill advised largesse. The Japanese will throw money at Putin thinking that they can gain their territories back. He has often confided to Lazaroff that the Japanese will never get their land back. The state of affairs will never change until Putin is overthrown by widespread discontent over corruption and financial collapse of the Russian economy. Putin has absconded with billions of rubles in Russian tax revenues and has stashed them with none other than Donald Trump. The median net worth of Russian citizens is $581 per capita. Nas da Rovia! Russian socialists and communists are loyal to the party but no longer serve the Russian people

Why so late? Foreign aid and investments should have been stopped months ago. Like the delayed vaccine rollout Japan is too slow to act efficiently and timely. Japanese bureaucracy made up of Patriarchal And bureaucratic old men cannot rise to the occasion. It’s time for Japan to have its best and brightest leaders which means women must break the glass ceiling and rise to the occasion

Posted in: Barring fans from abroad for Tokyo Olympics creates many questions See in context

Bachi !

The Japanese define “Bachi” as causing one’s own bad luck. In this case it all started with the bribery to influence the voting to award Japan the Olympics this year. Then it was compounded by Abe deciding to post pone the Olympics to July rather than in the fall of this year. Then bureaucratic incompetence delayed the start of vaccinating the Japanese public which has still not happened in Japan. The British have vaccinated over 50% of their population. The Americans are well on their way To vaccinating the entire population in the next month and a half. If Japan had done the same the Olympics could have been held with all the foreign spectators present

It is time for old Japanese men to step aside and let women like the head of the Japanese Olympic committee and the governor of Tokyo take leading roles in decision making and leader ship

Posted in: LDP wants more women at meetings, but only if they don't talk: Nikai See in context

Where have I heard this before? In America we lambaste old white men who led us through the genocide of Native Americans, the mass kidnapping and slavery of blacks, the unlawful internment of Japanese Americans and the deaths of over 6000 young American servicemen and women in the middle east based on lies of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

The Japanese have their own version called “Hardheaded old Japanese men” who dragged Japan through the barbarism committed in Asian countries against its innocent peoples. Unfortunately male hegemony is still pervasive in Japan today. Most men in Japan make more money than women for the same job, Japanese management is devoid of women, Men don’t stand up for women and the elderly in crowded trains.... and the list goes on and on

Posted in: Japan likely to hit COVID-19 herd immunity in Oct: researcher See in context

Incompetency and bureaucracy rule Japan. The government should have been vaccinating its citizens in late December and not wait till March. The vaccines are unavailable as the EU and other countries have not received sufficient amounts towards their quota. Japan may have to resort to vaccines from Russia and China where efficacy is as low as 45%. Herd immunity in Japan will not take place until mid 2022 or later

Posted in: New coronavirus cases in Tokyo fall to 618; nationwide tally 2,764 See in context

Since the Japanese government is unprepared to vaccinate its citizens until March, here’s one way to stop the pandemic so the Olympics can be held in Japan in July: register all bar and restaurant owners of establishments that stay open past 8 PM at night. Also include all customers who patronize these establishments after 8 PM. This group of people will have a lower priority for hospitalization due to the pandemic. Hospitals and medical facilities must admit Covid patients from the general population before they can admit these owners and customers who are uncooperative and have no concern for the health and welfare of their fellow citizens

Posted in: A farewell to @realDonaldTrump, gone after 57,000 tweets See in context

“He rocks in the tree-top all the day long

Hoppin' and a-boppin' and a-singin' his song

All the little birds on Jay Bird Street

Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet”

sadly and unfortunately America’s leader whiled away his days tweeting, playing golf, watching daytime dramas on TV and praising Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un and Adolf Hitler. It was the consortium of his ex-wives Ivana, Maria and Melania who ran the White House while the corona fueled chaos raged unchecked across the country.

To quote Donald, “we are doing too much testing for the numbers should be much lower“. Sadly, the Trump supporters do not wear a mask to show solidarity with their great leader.

Taiwan is the safest counrry from the pandemic but it was not invited by Hawaii to send its citizens for quarantine waiver entry to Hawaii. Hawaii's governor pushed for Japan's tourists to be first for that waiver.

it is another misstep by Hawaii's governor and a slight against Taiwan's outstanding achievement. In fact New Zealand and Vietnam have better records than Hawaii but will get no headway from the governor who is of Japanese ancestry.

His country was occupied and many of his country men were forced into slave labor and military service. He was treated inhumanely from day one.

Posted in: What 'uyoku dantai' and Japanese alt-right groups want See in context

General MacArthur‘s biggest mistake was not to require that schools include the factual history of Japan’s War time atrocities and transgressions against its Asian neighbors. This has fostered a generation of hate and discrimination based on an uninformed and misinformed public. The government cannot apologize for it’s past transgressions against its Asian neighbors for it knows not what to apologize for. These far right hate groups in Japan are just like the Nazis in the United States. The only difference is the Nazis are encouraged by Donald Trump. Abe cannot control the right wing hate groups in Japan because he knows not what the true history is.

Posted in: Tokyo coronavirus cases hit record daily high of 224; 80% in their 20s, 30s See in context

The easiest and quickest way to stop the spread of the coronavirus among the 20 and 30-year-olds is to limit alcohol sales and consumption in bars and restaurants to those who are at least 40 years old The daily virus count will drop dramatically. These establishments will now have a More responsible customer base wearing facemasks and practicing social distancing. This way the bars and restaurants can still remain opened for business with a chance to survive.

To cut down on the spread of the coronavirus among the homeless and/or quarantined travelers requires a simpler solution. Require all establishments selling retail and on premises consumption of alcohol to require proof of current and permanent residency. Homeless shelters qualify as permanent residency but must have a current time stamp

Japan is a nation of a diminishing populous. It’s rural communities will disappear absent government intervention. Japan can help itself by being a beacon of hope for the oppressed and the abandoned in the world community. The Kurds are the most deserving of help and a safe refuge. They have been oppressed for decades and recently backstabbed by Donald Trump after they fought side-by-side with American troops Japan should extend a welcoming hand to a most deserving group of refugees. The Kurds will help build Japan’s future

I remember Prime Minister Naoto Kan exclaiming “this is the end of Japan“ when the Fukushima nuclear reactors were melting down. Now the rest of the world is hunkered down and all bars. restaurants and nonessential activities are closed in developed countries. In the meantime, the bars, restaurants, cinemas and pachinko parlors are still open in Japan. Japanese citizens will pay the price for incompetent leadership. Zannen desu ne.
