Kamala Harris, meanwhile, expressed her support when Suga conveyed Japan's resolve to hold the Olympics

My respect for Kamala Harris just dropped a notch.

[Psaki] emphasized that the Japanese government has made public health the "central priority" 

Rather, the Japanese government has said it has made public health the central priority.

By holding the games it has shown no such priority.

Better headline: Suga Meets Biden to Promote Olympics

Posted in: Trump insults Pence, McConnell in speech to party donors See in context

Time to get rid of all Washington establishment do nothing Republicans

And replace them with circus clowns like Trump, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor-Green, Lauren Boebert, Andy Biggs, etc. That'll put the country on the fast track to a brighter future.

--The R's represent a minority of the country.

If that were true, even a little bit, the Democrats wouldn’t try to stop and oppose, cancel and block their free speech.

By that "logic", Black people in America are actually a majority because they've been discriminated against.

--Boogaloo Boys, Proud Boys, Oathkeepers, the various Qanon wacks 

Seriously, who are these people??? Never of them or what they represent.

Suuuuuuuure . . .

stamping out and eliminating the 1st and 2nd amendment

Using two different terms in one sentence to say the same thing doesn't make your argument any more persuasive.

At least 80 people killed by the military in Bago, Myanmar. None of those people are as worthy to be mourned as a royal is, apparently. What a weird world this is.

Posted in: Biden forms panel to study possible U.S. Supreme Court expansion See in context

House is first, watch the domino effect.

The GOP is going to bring about an orange wave by focusing on the evils of mail-in ballots, transgender bathrooms, censorship of Dr. Seuss books, and the persecution of Matt Gaetz.

conservatives against such a stance claim the issue "should not be resolved by majority vote."

Of course not. The issue should be resolved by the will of conservative old men.

Do it.

And get rid of the filibuster.

The GOP minority cannot be allowed to continue to obstruct democracy and functioning government.

Posted in: Police report record number of cannabis offenders in 2020 See in context

The National Police Agency warned that many young people are not aware of the risk of drugs

I watched a government drug awareness "specialist" giving a presentation to my kid's elementary school class here in Japan. He told the class that cannabis makes people act crazy, even sometimes randomly stabbing people with a knife. Total reefer madness crap.

I don't advocate that juveniles smoke pot, but if they ever find out the real truth about it through experience, they are going to harbor some serious distrust of law enforcement. Disinformation never helps.

Posted in: Florida prohibits vaccine passports, citing 'freedom' See in context

In Florida you’re free to walk around maskless, free to shoot an unarmed person if you claim that person is a threat. But if you’re an ex-felon you will never be free to vote again until you pay your poll tax (outlawed by the constitution).

Full communist takeover is on the horizon. Take note socialism fans.

This has nothing to do with socialism, communism, Marxism. This is authoritarian totalitarianism. Badly and iunjustly structured government

Such is manifest on both the left and the right.

Posted in: Tokyo's Imperial Hotel to be rebuilt See in context

It's an absolute shame that Frank Lloyd Wright's building was demolished in 1968. It was one of the most beautiful buildings in the whole country, without a doubt. The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust has put together a nice video recreating what it looked like. Nobody designs buildings like this anymore.

In reflection, my personal depiction of this event is irrelevant.

= OK, so I was lying, but since it's pretty clear that I can't weasel out of this like a true Trumpster, what's most important is that we forget about me lying.

Pathetic showbiz world and its existential problems..

Love the comment! Kudos!

After four years of reality TV star/jerk/attention freak Trump making everyone undergo the psychotherapy he's never man enough to face, why should I have the energy to care about rich and famous people's personal problems anymore?

Let them work it out on Oprah.

It is extremely regrettable that the Japanese government has still not been able to clean up the Fukushima mess, even a decade after the disaster.

Posted in: Biden signs huge stimulus bill ahead of coronavirus speech See in context

The biggest single theft from future generations in American history.

I take it that you'll be returning your stimulus check.

the money is not going to 99% to the people pushed by the 1% that want YOU to think that everyone is getting money...actually they kind of are getting money, but it's not going into the hands of most people. 

I'm still trying to parse that sentence, but I read it to mean that you'll be returning your stimulus check.

people in the service industry that feed the people should be first in line, not the Ghetty Museum, but even those people need to eat, so at least they can get sustenance from the people that put food on the table for the people that work at....museums.

Hmm...

What about service workers at the Ghetty Museum? Or you know, like the custodians and gardeners at the Ghetty Museum who get paid by the Ghetty Museum? Back of the line for those elitist snobs?

All that crap can wait. Outrageous! They absolutely don’t need money and shouldn’t get a dime at this point.

People who work in the arts (which are crap) and have lost their jobs should get jobs in corporate finance or high tech. Otherwise they and their kids deserve to starve.

Posted in: Invalidations of Meghan's claims of racism hurt Black women See in context

Racism is a serious issue that is being demeaned by this stupid media circus. Attention is being paid to Meghan not because of the significance of the supposed racism she has suffered, but because she is rich, privileged, and famous. Those who are subjected to the worst kinds of racism are not afforded an interview on an Oprah special or Netflix and Spotify contracts.

I don't know a single person who is a moderator for JT, but that doesn't mean that such people don't exist or that they may be posting among us.

Trump wanted $2,000 stimulus checks. Republicans supported this, including the two failed senate candidates in Georgia.

But now $1,400 stimulus checks are called socialism.

The plight of those suffering in places like Syria and Yemen pales in comparison to the woes of Harry and Meghan. And less Oprah-friendly as well.

Let’s pray that these two find some solace in their own Netflix series.

No sympathy guys, so long as you vote into power the people who agree to dumping radioactive water in your area, and saying . . .

You're withholding sympathy toward an entire group of workers because of an assumption of how they all vote. Every last one of them. How insightful and enlightened of you. Imagine if I did the same to you if tragedy befell your country.

Yeah right, and I guess you have not watch or read any new stories. Here are a few samples:

I guess you didn't read the news story above. If the area has been rebuilt, there would be no reason for Suga to vow to step up rebuilding.

Think.
