These guys are just making it up as they go along, waiting until the absolute last moment for decision.

I'll make it simple for you. Cancel the Olympics. All problems solved. You're welcome.

Doesn't matter to me. I am not going to watch any of the Olympics. I'm kind of disappointed that she, and all the other athletes, decided to bring more variants to Japan.

They were awarded with the promise that they would be good for Tohoku. Well, I live in Tohoku and can't think of a single benefit. Not for Tohoku, or anyone really, except those at the top that are able to make their money grab.

Sounds like an argument for a flat tax, or better yet, a sales tax with exceptions for basic food, clothing, health care, and housing.

It depends on what fees the student is asking for. Tuition should be paid, but if there are separate "activity fees" or "facility fees," such as for being able to use the gym, pool, library, etc. that students are not able to take advantage of, those should be returned.

Just go home and cancel the Pandemic Olympics. Everyone would consider you heroes for doing such.

I was so happy that President Trump lost the election. I was so disappointed that President Biden won the election. My disappointment continues.

The prime minister expressed his support for the Tokyo Olympics, and welcomed Japanese efforts to ensure the Games can take place safely," a Downing Street spokesperson said after the meeting.

There are close to zero Japanese efforts to ensure safety, so screw the prime ministers (plural).

I like Danielsan's suggestion, but if they have to pick a permanent one, I vote for LeVar Burton.

Posted in: Nationwide bookings eyed for mass vaccination sites in Tokyo, Osaka See in context

I was talking with my sister, a pharmacist in the US, and she said if I could get over there, she would be happy to jab me. Appreciate the offer, but there are numerous reasons I can't take her up on that. I would be happy to travel to Tokyo twice to get jabbed, but I haven't been offered the chance.

I saw on Mezamashi Terebi this morning that the government is "considering" (there's that word again) prioritizing those aged 12 to 39, completely skipping my generation. On the one hand, I will be happy when my two children living in the Kanto area can get vaccinated ASAP, but since there seems to be so much bumbling with "prioritizations" that I say skip them. There seem to be many that don't want it, so take them off the list. Open it up to all.

Posted in: Heatstroke or COVID-19? Similar symptoms could confuse at Olympics See in context

In terms of human blundering, this will be the most tainted olympics ever.

I was about to upvote your post.

I feel sorry for the athletes.

But now I can't. Athletes are what's fueling this absurd thing. If more and more refuse to come, there would be no Olympics. And don't go on about how it's their life long dream or whatever. There are plenty of people around the world that have had their dreams shattered over this.

Posted in: Main Tokyo vaccination center to offer shots to younger people See in context

My local municipalities web page on information on vaccination hasn't been updated for about a month, and they're still working on the elderly. Looking at the locations and times, they are really limited. Surrounding municipalities seem to be doing better. It looks like a lot might depend on where you live. Iwate was the last prefecture to become infected, it looks like it will be the last to be vaccinated.

Posted in: Japan's COVID-19 vaccination rollout picks up steam See in context

I saw one place on TV where the doctors, instead of sitting in a small room and waiting for the patients to come in one at a time, were using rolling chairs and giving the shots in the waiting area. Two nurses in front were taking vitals and sterilizing, the doctor gave the shot, and two nurses behind did the clean up. Then they all just scooted on down the line to the next person. Got the whole day's work done before lunch. 

Great for them, but it seems they should have started a second shift after lunch and gotten twice as much work done. As far as I'm concerned, public hospitals should be giving shots all day, every day, but even the ones where I live only have limited hours. Tax yen (not) at work at all levels of government.

Posted in: Suga regrets having to take all the heat for hosting Olympics during pandemic See in context

AFAIK, Koike can't ban people from entering the country. If Suga would ban anyone connected with the Olympics, they would in effect be cancelled. So that's why he has to take the heat.

Posted in: Suga aims to finish vaccinating Japan's population by November See in context

I don't know how they think this is even possible. I know two "elderly" people who have their reservations in October. That was the earliest reservation they could get. If the elderly aren't going to be finished until October, how are they going to get the rest of the population in only a month?

Posted in: As unpredictable Games loom, Japan's sponsors struggle to adapt See in context

Asahi used to be my beer of choice. I'm switching to Sapporo, or more likely a local craft beer.

I was thinking my next car would be an environmentally friendly Prius. But I will not support a company that supports the pandemic.

And I like Ayataka green tea (from Coca-cola), but you know, O~i Ocha is better.

Sponsors who don't pull out are part of the problem.

Posted in: Some people, opposed to the Tokyo Olympics, are directing their frustration at athletes for not speaking out against the Games, one example being swimming star Rikako Ikee. What do you expect the athletes to do? See in context

I expect the athletes will perform their best. But what I expect what they will do and what they should do are two different things. They should all take a knee to COVID and refuse to go to Tokyo.

Posted in: Have you thought about going overseas to get vaccinated for the coronavirus and then coming back to Japan? See in context

Not really an option for me taking time and money into consideration. Besides, I have absolutely no desire to go back to the US for anything.

It sure would be nice if there were some "Cancel Olympics" signs out there. They're coming to my prefecture mid-June. It sure would be nice if the Olympics were cancelled by then so we wouldn't have to deal with that mess.

Posted in: Athletes taking wait-and-see approach to Olympics See in context

If athletes refuse to come there won't be any Olympics. I say keep the pressure on to call on them to refuse to perform and for cancellation. If that angers Hashimoto, well, there's plenty of anger pointed towards her and all the others denying the Japanese people what they want, a cancellation.

Posted in: Paralympics chief tries to calm 'anger' over Games See in context

Mission not accomplished.

Anything calling for the games to continue will only bring on more anger.

Actually, I'm kind of wondering why someone representing the Paralympics is calling for them to go on. Aren't they some of the more vulnerable to the virus?

Cancel all the silly sports.

Now you know why there is public discontent aimed at athletes.
