Posted in: Mass vaccination site to fill vacant slots with police, other officials See in context

But if you gauged the demand for the vaccine by the number of expats wincing on Japan Today forums you would think 100% of the residents want it.

Or gauging by the other half of the comments you would think 100% of the residents DON’T want it.

The truth obviously lies somewhere in the middle and making a judgement based on JT comments is probably not the smartest way to judge demand.

Japan should pay off senior gov't officials in Lebanon to capture and bring him back.

Bribery? Doesn’t sound any better than what their accusing Ghosn of doing, but I guess it’s normal for government officials in Japan. smh

Posted in: In devotion to Trump, House GOP tabs Stefanik for a top post See in context

@Black

this has no basis in fact. The data that exists shows 74.2 million votes. why would 24.2 million people have switched to supporting Joe Biden?

I don’t believe anyone said 24.2 million people switched to supporting Biden. It was (at least) that many stopped supporting Trump! After January 6th it’s probably even more than that and, if there were another election today, Trump would lose again, most likely by even more than the 7 million he lost the popular vote by last election.

@Blacklabel

Oh come on!

The title doesn’t say it was a Russian “hack”, it says suspected Russian “origin”. And yes “origin”, by definition, means “that’s where it came from”. It also says the government doesn’t think the Russian government was involved. Either you didn’t read the article or your purposely trying to twist things...

Posted in: Republicans tell Biden tax hikes are a non-starter in recovery plan See in context

So the Democrats want to tax people into oblivion even after the country has suffered over a year of lockdowns

If, after a year of lockdowns as you say, they still made over $400,000 then I think they could pay their fair share.

@P. Smith

So far this morning I have seen over a dozen Japanese people without masks or wearing them incorrectly. All of the foreigners I’ve seen have been masked up properly.

I know you’ve stated this a number of times recently and it shows the huge difference in different areas. My experience here to the west of central Yokohama is exactly 180 degrees different. I spotted several foreigners without masks, and to be honest I don’t count, but not a single Japanese (assuming so by appearance anyway) not wearing a mask. And this wasn’t just this morning but the situation in general daily.

*Yes - the infection/death rate in those dangerous places are off the charts. Covid death rate in SD is *30 times that of Japan.

Totally false statement. Its nowhere close to that.

You’re right, not 30 times!

Actually, according to worldmeters, the deaths/1M in Japan is 74. In SD it’s 2,192. That’s only 29.6 times Japan’s death rate. Certainly not 30 times! /s

Posted in: Americans support restricting unvaccinated people from offices, travel: poll See in context

Given the fact that you have more elderly living in that state, I would think so, but the fact that kids are not dying and schools are allowed to reopen that in itself is a huge accomplishment.

You do realize that Texas ranks 48th on the list of States with the percent of population over 65, don’t you? Or are you deliberately ignoring facts to justify your position?

A smaller number of kids may be dying because of COVID than adults, but how many of those adults that did catch COVID were infected by the kids? I’m not sure there are any verified numbers on this but when that is one factor in the states with the highest death rate it needs to be considered. Unless, again, you just don’t feel the number of deaths is important.

@Bass

Both Texas and Florida have high rates of covid deaths.

Also Freedom and kids can go to school. So how many kids are dying? They’re not. People will continue to die and let’s not forget you have a lot of elderly people living in Florida so that affects the numbers as well. But anyway, no need to banter about this, these States are open for business and life and the Democrats can’t stop it. Kudos!

So, it’s the “elderly” living in Florida that most affects the numbers? What about Texas?

The three highest death count stares are California, Texas, and Florida, in that order. The only thing is that California has a population of nearly 40 million while Texas has less than 30 million and Florida just over 20 million. That means the per-capita death count in Texas is about 1,600/million and Florida about 1,500/million, both higher than California’s per-capita rate.

It’s true that people will eventually die, we’re all human. But when the State’s policies push it to the top of the death count those policies need changing. Or are you saying that those lives don’t matter?

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

@Bass

I did as well.

$270 million for the National Endowments of the Arts and Humanities 

$200 million for the Institute of Museum and Library Services

$10 million for the “preservation and maintenance of Native American languages” 

OK, let me see if I’ve got this straight.

That’s about 2.5% of the bill that you say is not COVID relief related, so what you’re saying the other 97.5% of the bill is, right?

That means 100K+ need to be deported.

Actually the article says “encountered 100,441 migrants attempting to enter the country illegally”!

It doesn’t say how many actually “entered” the US so, from this, it’s hard to say how many might need to be deported. Just saying...

"We have a very sick and corrupt electoral process that has to be fixed immediately. This election was rigged," Trump said. "And the Supreme Court and other courts didn't want to do anything about it.

"I agree with Trump.

Everyone has their own opinion. Personally I think someone should require a psychiatric exam and follow up care before he hurts himself.

Posted in: Japan to start COVID vaccinations next week despite syringe shortage See in context

sticking a good portion of thse doses into a different vial that standard needles can reach the bottom of . . . . . . .

Based on my highly relevant experience with bottles of shampoo, I recommend injecting blood into 1/6 full vial, swilling it about, and then reinjecting the blood/vaccine mix.

There is no problem with the needles reaching the bottom and there isn’t a complete sixth dose remaining after using a high ddead draw syringe for the first five.

The problem is that some syringe designs have a larger wasted amount of vaccine remaining after injection. Low dead draw syringe design is the design choice now in the US with a slight majority of the syringes used being low dead draw, but this is less so in other countries.

Let look at China.. from this year China will grow with the blessing of the banana republic.

China will continue to attempt growth by unilaterally bullying her neighbors and by force. I hope that the Biden admin can have more control of that aspect since the last admin was more about making cheap neckties, hat, and other cloths for sale in the US.

But good on earning your 50cents for the day!

He sent the latest tweets on his @POTUS account after Twitter banned his personal account.

The article should be updated to say that Twitter, like they said they would, also immediately deleted those tweets.

“I think that video was done only because almost all his senior staff was about to resign, and impeachment is imminent,” a White House adviser said.

“That message and tone should have been relayed election night...not after people died,” the adviser added.

I think this comment helps add a bit of context to Trump’s message.

The truth is he’s running scared, as he should be...

Trump is still supporting the chaos! Twitter did remove the tweet, but they need to deactivate the account!

And then Congress needs remove Trump. There’s no telling what he will do in the next two weeks as he tries to overthrow democracy!

Posted in: GOP plans to upend Biden win for Trump rips party apart See in context

I hope the Trump supporters here aren't naïve enough to think that these Repub Senators actually believe anything of what they're saying...

Exactly!

And what it’s about for most of them is money and power, either they want to get it or don’t want to take a chance on losing it.

It’s rather telling that Hawley, who has ambitions for 2024, started a fundraising campaign to coincide with his announcement. And the Cruz, another with ambitions for 2024, not to be left behind announced he would “spearhead” a push in congress on the 6th.

It’s all rather disgusting, really!

Posted in: Cruz leads Republican drive to object to Biden's win See in context

...Republicans will do everything in their power to resist and foil Biden and his people for the next 4 years.

Actually Trump is now doing so much to divide and rip the Republicans apart that it may not be possible for them to function as one group any longer.

The real situation is that Trump is forcing the party to split and the Hawley/Cruz political stunts are just helping that along.

After Hawley, a potential 2024 presidential candidate, gained a bit of spotlight, Cruz, another potential candidate, decided to pull a bigger stunt to steal the spotlight back. In reality both realize that it’s just a political stunt, has zero chance of success, in no way hurts Biden’s presidency, and in reality will accomplish nothing but to further divide the Republicans.

The Trumpublicans have moved so far right the see the old Republican party as a far left group while Trump himself just wants to follow in the footsteps of those he admires, Vlad, Xi, Kim, et.al.

Posted in: Biden says Trump aides setting 'roadblocks' for his transition team See in context

...but the good thing is, conservatives are not going to burn things down in protest, not the thing we do, looking forward to the comeback.

OK. Trump is tweeting for everyone to join a rally on Jan. 6 In Washington.

To quite another article on that:

The rally raised fears of fresh violence after the previous pro-Trump protest that included the Proud Boys on December 12 saw several people stabbed and dozens arrested.

So, are you saying the conservative Trump followers don’t burn thing down in protest they just stab and kill?

Neither seems acceptable to me but your welcome to your own opinion.

Posted in: Biden says Trump aides setting 'roadblocks' for his transition team See in context

Trump is probably thinking, if they can give me hell for 4 years, I’ll do the same to Biden and the Dems for 4 weeks and 4 years as well. The hell with democracy, the hell with America, the hell with anyone but ME!

There completed it for you. But, I’m sorry, most don’t feel burning and destroying the house because you lost is right. He should grow up and act like an adult for once.

And now that the Repubs have teamed up with Pelosi to override his veto of the NDAA I’m sure we’ll see more of what looks like a 2 year old’s tantrum because someone took away his toy. How much more damage can he do?

The only bright spot is that the House Dems have voted for a $2000 stimulus. Will Team Trump/Pelosi be able to fight off those Repubs to get it through the Senate?
