Not all the graduates of Tokyo University are smart.
True. About 6 years ago, I taught some lunchtime/early afternoon discussion classes at Todai (Tokyo U). The students weren't really above average uni students, intelligence-wise. There are some things that make them different though. They can be opinionated, stubborn, individualistic, confident, and think outside the box. I didn't have to prod the students to get them to speak up and share their opinions at all. I was just concerned about the students being rude to one another by stepping on other's opinions.

How about people just get the flu like they have for eons? If you die due to getting the flu, IT'S YOUR TIME TO GO. Stop this baby-proofing of the planet. Sorry for telling you that you don't need to wear a football helmet to tie your shoes. The sooner covid-19 passes through everyone's immune system, the sooner this will be all over. We are just prolonging the flu season. Oh, do you even remember that there are FLU SEASONS? BTW, look into the German-French movie "The Hamburg Syndrome." Wikipedia has deleted the plot of the movie, because we are living through it right now.

Oh, Japan had MORE reactors than prefectures:
On March 11, 2011, there were 54 nuclear reactors in operation in Japan supplying approximately 30% of the country’s electric power. However, the Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent devastating tsunami that brought disaster to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station radically changed Japan’s energy configuration.

In the 1950's America/CIA pressurised Japan to build nuclear reactors to increase its supply of material for building nuclear bombs.
This is true. The reactors are GE. General Electric is in the weapons manufacturing industry. Remember when all that bomb making material was CAREFULLY taken out of the wrecked reactors and shipped off to Europe? Japan is helping the US and NATO manufacture nuclear bombs. Doesn't Japan have nearly as many reactors as prefectures? Ask yourself why.

Japanese following the social distance rules.
No, they are all inside restaurants and cafes because it's very cold outside. That woman in the photo is 1) maybe not eating lunch at noon 2) eating convenience store food that cannot be eaten in a restaurant or cafe. BTW, she is probably eating cup noodle instead of an onigiri because a jungle crow would swoop down and snatch the onigiri from her hand.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Seems the JGov WANTS people to get the 'rona. "Trains aren't full enough. So, we have decided to shorten the time trains are running so there will be MORE people on the trains. We serve the 'Rona God. All hail the 'RONA. 'RONA! 'RONA! 'RONA!" I may be paraphrasing that JGov statement a bit.

The Deep State always needs an enemy. Bush & Obama had their Evil Doers. Trump's Evil Doers were the Dems and fake GOP. The Pentagon has been begging Trump to start something with China. (btw, both trump and biden suck. just so you know my politics)

Is this the same guy that had a video showing how you can wear a mask and eat/drink at the same time? He folded the mask on his face in two, over his nose. Then he draped a napkin over the folded mask. He ate food under the napkin. The napkin got in his beer. (great example of a boss never being told "hey boss, your idea is dumb")

Nice social distancing again in that photo.
Exactly. Why can't courts do without spectators at this time? They aren't essential.

Trump's the reason why we have to have 20,000 troops at Biden's inauguration.
You're right. Trump is the one who called in the National Guard. Thanks for pointing out the good things Trump's doing. "Superlib" stands for "Super Libertarian," right? Still going to Tea Parties?

Even LAPD statistics showed that over 97% of BLM/police violence demonstrations had no violence whatsoever.
That's because the assaults, murders, looting, and arson happened RIGHT AFTER demonstrations "ended." Those criminal actions didn't happen "during" the demonstration, but immediately after. As soon as some BLM demonstration participants started criminal actions, the demonstration was considered to have ended, and became a separate event.

The right seem to be saying that the insurrection was good and cool, and that they liked it. But also it was bad and antifa did it. Strange.
Yeah, because it's totally unimaginable that people in a group (you imagine them to be in) may actually disagree on some things. How about not lumping people in groups like "Right" and "Left" and just seek the Truth, which takes no sides. Oh, because that would take THINKING, instead of just knee-jerk reactions against ThE oThEr SiDe.

Democracy means ruling of the people, demos , from Greek language. Now guess, how your presidents are elected...lol Exactly, not by the people, but by a small bunch of elite electoral college votes. Now write it new or find another word, but please, don’t call it democracy.
The United States is not a Democracy. It's a Constitutional Republic. A true Democracy would be 2 wolves and 1 sheep deciding what's for dinner.

Just a few things censored from the Net: 1) DC Police moving barricades aside to let protesters move up the Capitol Building steps. 2) ANTIFA fliers calling for members to go to DC wearing MAGA hats. 3) ANTIFA members breaking Capitol Building windows, Trump supporters grabbing them and pulling them away saying "we don't do that!" "this guy is ANTIFA!" 4) Trump supporters chanting against ANTIFA during the "insurrection", 5) Vice Prez Mike Pence receiving a mysterious coin during a handshake with a senator after the voting had finished (rather creepy, actually) 6) Trump video calling for protesters to go home in peace (removed from Twitter twice) 7) Some ANTIFA members at the DC protest have already been identified NOTE: I'm anti-censorship, NOT pro-Trump (not pro-Biden either).

When I eat out for lunch at my local cafe, I go at 11. I'm the only one there. At noon, when I am leaving, the mob arrives. Do they REALLY need to have lunch at NOON on SATURDAY? There are other hours to have lunch. Haven't they heard of brunch?
