It's an odd attitude in a developed country in this day and age.

And it's why despite simple logic and common sense, they'll press on with inevitable failure. It's marvelous to behold.

Why the hell did she let it happen 9 times? Enabling people like him is part of the problem

Ahhhhhhhh there it is. The good ol fashioned victim blaming. You'd fit in very well in japan.

The beauty of all these debacles is that people will once and for all see the ruling regime for what it really is. Supremely incompetent to the hilt.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 47 new daily coronavirus infections on Sunday See in context

47 is nothing compared to Japan's population and I hope these low numbers maintain. Gambare!

Its 50 today. Weekend numbers were fudgingly low. I guess it's getting harder to fudge.

Yes. Let's wait for the numbers to reach astronomical levels before freaking out. Awesome advice.

A delight to read the individual comments of those whose cognitive dissonance blinds them to the fact that change is here and there's no going back to the status quo. A delight indeed!!

Posted in: ¥10 trillion reserve to combat pandemic branded Abe's 'pocket money' See in context

$90 billion isn't a lot of money 

How exactly do you draw this conclusion? This is obviously a slush fund for abe and his cronies. I'm glad they're calling him out for this blatant tax grab.

Posted in: Japan's crowded trains spark fear of new coronavirus cases See in context

The trains are managed by private companies that most likely contribute to the ldp coffers. Don't expect any changes any time soon. No one cares for the plebs.

Posted in: 2 Yomiuri Giants players test positive for coronavirus See in context

I think lots of good hand washing, excellent social-distancing, wearing of masks and bowing which are rigidly followed here, will be enough to make the Olympics happen next year. Maybe even later this year

Hahaha hahaha

Been saying this for weeks and a lot people thought it was no big deal. 

Oh? Didn't you know? Science and sound logic doesn't fly in most circles. Its mostly jingoistic feel good noise making.

No, it is not.

People know how to take care of themselves and to act responsibly for the most part in Japan!

Yes. Let's ignore professional health advice for 'feels' can you imagine the loss of lives if people relied on jingoistic feel good rubbish instead of sound science? Thank science for science!!

Posted in: Approval rate for Abe's cabinet at 39%; lowest in 2 years: poll See in context

What numbers are you referring to? The numbers that have been manipulated because of a severe lack of testing, or the numbers around the money that he spent on his masks that still haven't reached everyone because of QC issues? Perhaps the numbers regarding the amount of money that will be lost because of the olympics that should never have come to Japan in the first place. Yes, that's right, Japan had over 100,000 displaced citizens due to the meltdown when Abe sold his cool Japan to the IOC. There is no success story despite how much the LDP and Abe would like to tout because this is still a situation in play, and if he doesn't get his act together the "successful" numbers could blow up in his tiny mask protected face.

YES. YES. A billion times YES!!!

Kato, the health minister has a background in economics and finance and not medicine or public health

This alone should set red flags ablaze but for some unknown reason people on here still fail to call out the incompetence and gross negligence. Mind boggling.
