And yet still no sexual predators list…….

My thoughts exactly! And no one here seems to want to discuss that point. It’s sad.

…Reversion to Japan

Okinawa was its own sovereign kingdom/nation. It was invaded by the imperial Japanese army just like Guam, the Philippines, Saipan and countless other small Pacific Island nations. There should not have been a “reversion”. It never belonged to Japan. If anything, the US should have supported it like Guam or it should have been returned to its original state like the Philippines.

if safety is important, wouldn’t installing guardrails be more efficient and overall more cost effective?

By the number of +/- of my previous post about the creation of a National Sex Offender Registry and why the government doesn’t create one… I now see the true reason. The general populace apparently dissent want one. That is sad and pathetic. More needs to be done to protect the victims and potential victims, not the creeps and perverse salary men.

None of this will change nor end until there is a level of serious accountability for sex offenders. Umm… perhaps a National Sex Offender Registry? Why is that so hard for the government to do? It’s sad they do nothing to stop this sort of crime.

Posted in: Experts warn COVID-19 rebound could exceed 'third wave' in Tokyo See in context

It’s simple…. Start vaccinations! Japan is one of the wealthiest and most developed nations in the world, yet the government and business processes are not indicative of that. They much rather talk and speculate instead of take action. They need to protect the elderly and the significantly declining population as a whole or in 85-100 years there will no longer be a Japan.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 394 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 1,917 See in context

Can someone please respond to this?

Why is there a distinction made between the number of men and women who test positive for COVID-19? The virus is indiscriminate so what does male or female have to do with it?

Perhaps types of places the virus was contracted or city wards would be a better statistic.

Just a thought…. If Japan doesn’t like the missiles flying overhead and nearby, then they should do something about it. Sometimes you have to take care of yourself instead of always relying on others (USA) to do it for you. Japan should be a leader in Asia.

As horrible and tragic it was... the world will not forget: unlike Japan forgot about Unit 731, the numerous times it invaded Korea, Comfort women, the atrocities and slaughter of the Okinawan peoples. Always remember when you F&$k with a bull sometimes you catch the horns. To the victims of both bombings. WE WILL NOT FORGET YOU. Peace on earth and good will to all men.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic organizers, IOC clash over who will pay for delay See in context

Japan sooooo wanted this games and now they got more than they bargained for. It was a disaster from the start, the logo problem then the cost of the stadium, then locations of events such as moving maraton to Hokkaido, the ever spiraling cost, and finally the virus.... The last straw that broke the camel's back?

There were several other problems too. The problem is they are far too reactive to problems instead of proactive. They wait until the last minute for everything. Like the virus for example. Now it’s getting out of control.

There is absolutely a clause about who pays in event of natural disaster, man made disaster or act of god. The government should have immediately taken action and raised this concern in the beginning but they were trying to be greedy and keep the Olympics going. Now it’s too late.

Its all about money. It always has been. The government taxes the hell out of the people and keeps their pockets fat. Change is coming. The people need to start voicing their thoughts and asking why and holding officials accountable and not bow their heads and ignore what’s going on around them. It only empowers those who are taking advantage of their positions of power.

Posted in: Abe pressed to pay out more cash as coronavirus hits economy See in context

@ilovecoffee - I agree with you. There has been a sales tax hike (10%) where is that money? You are taxed when you buy things for you business then taxed again because you own the things you bought then taxed again if you sell or dispose of what you owned. Also the income tax rate is outrageous. I’m taxed 38%! Where is the tax money going?!

Let the people keep their money by reducing the taxes.

Posted in: Abe pressed to pay out more cash as coronavirus hits economy See in context

Sure they will develop a plan to pay out ¥100,000 to everyone, but it will either come in the form of a post COVID-19 travel voucher, some other ridiculous form or they will make it so difficult to get with numerous requirements and stipulations it’s not even worth it. Even better, everyone will have to cram in together at their local city office and attend some 2-4 hour corona virus awareness class to receive it.

Either way, the banks here aren’t setup for every citizen to receive an electronic payment. The postal service is great but Japan doesn’t do checks. I’m guessing everyone will have to get their cash from a local post office: giving each citizen great potential for contracting this virus.

I don’t to sound pessimistic but the government response to this crisis has been quite disturbing and lack luster.

Stay healthy and safe everyone.

Derek - It is not profiteering. No company or entity is taking complete advantage of a terrible crisis and situation. This is a place where common sense and mental agility prevail... This is New Orleans....umm... I mean Japan.

But seriously they could do much better than this for the people of Japan. It’s time for a change.

Does anyone know anything about the firm which is making these, and the owner's links to Abe? This absolutely stinks.

Hey! No questions allowed. There’s nothing to see here. Pay no mind to the man behind the curtain.

... of course there are links between the manufacturing company and someone in the government.

@Austin Rogers @Fiddlers.

It is the best the government can come up with and it is definitely not a waste of money. You forget this is New Orleans.... I mean Japan. Enjoy the ride my friends and stay safe.
