You all keep eating all that healthy food. I’ll continue with my life of happiness and keep my immune system strong. Almost 60 and have never had the flu, cold or cough. Never sick. Yeah I do have a mild case of COPD but that’s cause of my wild and crazy life I had. A life of lots of fun. And still very active, running, camping, hiking, and so on and Just having lots of fun.

The only kickback to it was I had to lie to take a day off.

How about J-Gov do more to stop the spread of COVID-19 in red light district areas. The base reports 130 for 2020. Where as Tokyo is reporting above this number daily. But for some reason the base is the big news.

just can’t understand the importance of having to go to these places. Why can’t these delusional guys just take a break from going? Maybe the time off will give them time to realize that those places are nothing more than a waste of money. Maybe they’ll get a real girlfriend. Others may actually reconnect with their wife and kids.

A final note; I would like to personally thank all those guys and girls for their contributions to adding to the delay in getting Japan on track to opening. Thanks to you arrogant people, I as well as many of my friends And others have to continue to drain their bank accounts to put food on the table and pay bills. Looks like most of us will be bankrupt by 2021 thanks to your need to sit and drink and chat with a girl that’s doesn’t even care about you. Only your money!!!

Or just stop testing. As critical cases are only 1%, perhaps we can not all just get it and have it done with. Image if everyone was tested for a common cold or the flu? I bet the numbers would be higher.

To all you oyajis; Those 18 year old girls in the hostess clubs don't like you. They like your money. Stop going! And to all the companies who control their staff, demand that staff not go to bars and pubs and other establishment serving alcohol. If everyone does their part and not go to the entertainment district areas, the places will close. Do your part. Stay home. June 20th we were down to 684 active cases nation wide. Now back to over 3,000. People Stage One opening is STAGE ONE! NOT STAGE THREE!!

You answered your own question in your comment.

I don't know what you mean. Don't be so oblique. Your time would be better spent adding your own original thoughts, rather than non-commenting on mine!

You "It is controlled by the Yakuza, ...". And as we all know Abe always takes care of his friends first. ....... My apologies for not clearly spelling it out. Does it now make sense to you?

Why is the Government going to give free money - our taxes - to this incidious industry?! It is controlled by the Yakuza, criminals who are a scourge on this nation. Shut down this satanic industry and drive the Yakuza out permanently! I'll pay for that.

They need to also stop high schools from sports practices. Was out jogging yesterday to see the river side fields filled with baseball and rugby high school players out practicing as though there was no worries in the world. And they if believe it is so safe that the ojisan coaches stayed on the side lines far from the players.

Totally agree but please, please remember that the best way to make way on this, is to ensure the women are qualified to do the job. Don’t just appoint someone because they are a female......... like Abe did.

China: Takes over Islands not theirs and builds a military island

China; Exports Cornavirus worldwide which shuts down economies

China; Aggressively trying to control the people of Hong Kong

China: Taking land away from India

China: Trying to take over Senkagu Island

China: Spying on the world through apps

Just to name a few.

China, you have a good thing. Countries around the world trusted you to manufacture their products. But you continuously give everyone a reason to not trust you. If any country goes against you, it is yours and only your fault. So suck it up or start to be internationally friendly.

As an America and a conservative living in japan I am against this move by the president. In fact it’s a good reason why I now will not vote for him.

I'm also a conservative and understand and respect your point, however, what is wrong with putting legal Americans (tax payers) before an person who is not American first? Doesn't Japan and other countries do the same?

Posted in: Opposition regrets failure to build united force against Koike See in context

The people spoke. Apparently the "Opposition" didn't have any clear agenda to help the people of Tokyo.

She was up against a comedian and a person who says if elected he'll save Tokyo with a plan to eradicate COVID 19 and fix the economy. If he really has such a great plan, why keep it secret and allow Tokyo people to become infected and die and lose their businesses? Tell us your plan now and save us with your great plan. Perhaps he would have gotten elected had he told us his master plan!

@moonwatcher; the difference here is that the kids expect the parents to take care of them, mentally, physically, and financially. Everyone I know in the states living with parents is to take care of the parent(s), not the other way around.

Looking at how much that has been accomplished by him, I would be embarrassed to admit that. The only people that have benefited so far are his corporate friends. The only relief I have received to date is two Abe no masks.

So please take a long vacation. Perhaps less of my taxes will go into the pockets of his corporate friends..

Simon FostonToday  11:59 am JST

I know this might be a hard concept for diehard Trump-lovers to grasp but dishing out the dirt on a leader you think is criminally incompetent and committing acts that you know will damage your country are not exactly the same thing.

The only damage being done to America is being done by Democratic lovers.

Let's hope that they also train the teachers not to bully the kids. Hopefully, if my grandchildren are born with the same beautiful, wavy brown hair that my daughter was born with will not be forced to dye their hair black and get a straight perm.
