People are going crazy. COVID and unemployed. We need to separate until emotions cool. COVID is not going away anytime soon. Stress levels are out of control with some families with children. No money. No way to counter the money factor.

China is spot on with this statement. I also would like to see any Japanese official drink the water that is contaminated with radiation with a mix of chemicals as well.

I just hope the vaccine is distributed to those who want it faster than what has been the norm here in Japan. Slow, Slow, Slow, Slow, and Slow. Meanwhile, the people who live in Japan are just drinking and eating and sitting next to each other on the train talking and talking. Seems like there is a bit of a disconnect between the Japanese Government and the Citizens. This is getting boring. Time to think of what to do ourselves.

Prince was a genius when it came to music. He has already gone down in recent history as one of the best creative minds and was an amazing guitarist. He is missed by millions of people to include me. I will listen to his music and look forward to his newly released music as soon as possible. Thank you Prince. In the Purple Rain.

Posted in: Japan urged to outlaw LGBT+ discrimination before Olympics See in context

I am not sure why it is called discrimination. The man made laws and the way society works is largely designed by men and women who were thinking of the family unit which consists of a man and a women and their children. Marriage itself is between a man and a women in what is called holy matrimony. Recently, the Pope indicated that he cannot endorse anything other than the family unit that bare children. That is the plan. The only plan that enables our society to survive. Discrimination is terrible, and there is no excuse for it. However I am not sure why this is discrimination based on the future of the human race and the plan set forth by the one who is greater than we.
