Posted in: 1st pretrial procedure for Abe shooter held amid tight security See in context

More security guards were protecting Abe the day he was shot. All were asleep. Under those circumstances in most countries the victim would have been protected. In very typical fashion now the finger is pointing at others. It has nothing to do with the UC, but about saving face at the security fiasco.

The article is far more inflammatory than Japanese politics. Maybe that’s what the editors want.

Posted in: TikTok updates content rulebook as pressure from West builds See in context

I’m not a TikTok user but its content often appears on YouTube. A great amount of content is divisive & not peaceful. I’d like to see as much similar content about China and people's plight there. You aren’t even allowed to get YouTube in China, only WhatsApp and other media connected / controlled by / monitored by the long arms of the Chinese Communist Party

Western nations should back the purchase so that the CCP not be given free reins to take the ports by default.

Good to see an article clearly stating a direct vs indirect COVID-19-linked death. God knows how many 'COVID-19 deaths' are really only contributing factors. I imagine most.

Looks like JR needs reprimanding before the driver. 150 kph with 160 passengers and no backup? That's not cool, I don't care how good a track record JR has.

Posted in: Britain to send aircraft carrier strike group to waters near Japan See in context

Perfect for containment. I don’t believe Xi is suicidal. It’ll just make things more difficult for the freedom fighters at home. However, do expect more trouble at home as I’d suspect the CCP won’t take it lying down and espionage and / or Internet disruption would be a good possibility..with the help of some neighbors.

Posted in: Japanese anti-sexual violence ad, #ActiveBystander, becomes online hit See in context

The advertising Council of Japan has 100% responsibility to back this. If they don’t I’d say they have a few skeletons they’re hiding.

Not to toot my horn but some years back I saw a tall guy banging his girl’s head on a wall. 20 meters away I heard the thumping. They’d had a fight I guess. I took my bike & all but ran it into him. I told him to leave her..all in English. He turned to me as if to pick a fight with me. He just bowed & said ごめん. As I left the girl in a weak voice said thank you in English.

Posted in: Mental health in the workplace, saved by bots and apps? See in context

Bring in a nurse or doctor who will act like a professional as they’re supposed to be and not report it to the company. Maybe this is a too tall order for companies since they’re footing the bill.

Posted in: Asian shares slip on report of more U.S. sanctions on China See in context

Chinese. Can’t live without them but can live without the CCP. One day they’ll be out of office. For now I pray for all the freedom fighters in Hong Kong and elsewhere. I wonder how many millions have lost their lives. We may never get full numbers but stories will surely tell us about the other great leader who tried decimating the country.

Right now it’s $25 billion. I’ll bet a latte it’ll be closer to $30 before all the (hidden) costs are factored in. Are the olympics worth this, or is it pride & arrogance? What will the average person get out of it?

Hong Kongers are too free minded. It’s too late to changed them. Look, it’s high schoolers out on the streets fighting, not seasoned politicians or rioters. Only way for Beijing to change them is to physically take them out of HK and deport them to unnamed camps. I’m just waiting for parents and schools to claim their children are missing. Then we’ll know we have a large problem on our hands.

This how Mao Zedong riddled China of millions of people. Xi is a world class criminal now bent on killing, destroying or brain washing the remaining little bastion of freedom on mainland China. I wonder how the world is going to react. A gentle slap on the wrist and say no, no? Let’s protect Taiwan at least.

Kim Jong Un's English is better than most Japanese politicians.

i believe he was in an english language boarding school in Basel, Switzerland for several years, then in an english language university in Germany.

Anyway there’s a lot of Engrish to learn here in Japan.

As I thought. The vaccine is all about the money. If one is confident about their product one would naturally want to make more. What’s the hurry? Fear of unforeseen consequences? I may die but I don’t now see myself getting vaccinated.
