Posted in: GOP purges Cheney for 'unity,' but Trump bent on retribution See in context

The right wing press insists on regurgitating Trump's comments as if they have great relevance. I'm not sure people really care what he says, but the press keeps pushing it.

The press and Republicans continue to spin up divisiveness in the US. It accomplishes nothing positive for the society.

This is how nations end. The Chinese and Russians must be laughing ever day.

Actually, they still use cables.

By the way, there has not been a US ambassador to Japan since 2019. The post has been filled by, uh, no one. There is only a chargé d'affaires ad interim.

That illustrates how useless the whole system is and how French is still used, even though Americans are not very fond of the French.

No thanks. I make my own mayo, catsup, and mustard. No high fructose corm syrup then. Japanese condiments are FAR TOO sweet.

There are no sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup in Japanese mayonnaise.

Japanese mayonnaise contains eggs (with yolks, which is different than western mayonnaise), vinegar and salt. That's it. No artificial ingredients or preservatives at all.

Fast facts:

Doctors in Japan can say they are specialists in any discipline. There are no rules after you become a doctor. Any doctor can hang out a shingle that says they are an OB/Gyn or, internal medicine specialist.

Chiropractors are not recognized in Japan and are not licensed. You can hang a shingle out tomorrow and say that you are a chiropractor. These people set up office near US military bases because Americans think it's real.

Japan as the host country should be hosting properly and being a safety country first. We need the experts to make the right decisions and then we can enjoy the Olympics this year or maybe next year.

Do we know for sure if this combustion is relevant to electric cars only or to make electricity for homes. And, you know, what about businesses who deliver? This problem is something we should consider carefully and it go either way, as long as the country agrees.

I think it's important to say the things that affect the events that you are part of and stuff. I hope the attention to seeing the effects will prepare the, you know the way it will happen. The Olympics is something important and stuff so it should be done right, so maybe it should be held and maybe not.

I don't see anything close to being measures for a "state of emergency."

Maybe it should be called a "state of empty measures agreed upon by a committee of bureaucrats who know nothing about anything?"

In Japan, it has been shown time and time again by the government that saving face is way more important than saving lives.

No doubt. All governments seem to have the same behavior, such as the Soviet Union and Chernobyl, the US and the Vietnam war or during the Covid-19 pandemic when"... everything was under control and the US is doing a very good job."

They made a couple of photo op helicopter missions to a schoolyard post tsunami with some candy bars or something.
