There’s been more ‘games’ here lately that those big events scheduled for July. We’ve read a lot of ‘flip-flop’ by one, or two, “Olympic supporters”, … especially since Jun 180.

Poor souls. A terrible, yet predictable predicament. Now, their “caught between a rock and a hard place.”
- “The athletes, arriving late Saturday at [Tokyo’s] Narita airport,… The 8 other members of the team left early Sun by chartered bus for host city Izumisano in Osaka Prefecture.” -
(Let’s hope the don’t detour to an interim location, like the Nagoya Regional Immigration Services Bureau in Aichi Prefecture.)
”Shoganai.” The warm, welcoming people of the Kansai region will greet them with open arms and show the world the true meaning of “Omotenashi”.

Surprised by this lack of compassion for some other foreign residents here @Reckless 12:45pm?
*- “Discriminatory comments are par for the course living in Japan. Suck it up.[?] Much milder than the physical violence Asians are subjected to in the US.*
We’ve all read your difficulties over the last year and the need to get vaccinated. Does that make one more understanding or jaded toward the difficulty of others? We’re all temporary passengers together on this crazy ship called “Japan”, right?

Asking this again from @7:11am (for a reason):- “Why is the media ‘here’ highlighting this type of uncommon case? It seems likely to inflame and perpetuate, both ‘here and abroad,’ some overall, wrongfully stereotypical-depictions of some Asian cultures and their individual choices of ‘food’ sources.
Case in point:
- @12:55pm: “What? I have never heard anything like that. Does he refer to China?”- [responding to: “Turkish authorities reported the Japanese man said in fluent Turkish that Japan has a culture of eating cats; has, not the past tense had.] -
Thanks again, media for the helping(?) with a global understanding of Asian peoples’ lives, here and abroad. - “Read more stories [like this] from SoraNews24!”

Well done @blvtzpk 1:37pm for ‘acknowledging the very personal suffering of others’ and, also for ‘putting your experiences out there’ for equal scrutiny. - In the long run, we will have seen many different experiences for many different people who possibly came into contact with this potentially-deadly virus and its continuing mutations and variations.
Yours are not just ‘hit&run’, irresponsible comments that only attempt to stress ’ANY positive note’ in order to further their agenda. Despite these reported daily numbers surging up or trickling down, the ‘supporters’ are more concerned with their Games than the overall health, safety & welfare of Japan’s isolated, yet highly enmeshed and interacting people.

The JGov ‘just doesn’t get it’, …at all, … about Everthing!
How many times, @virusrex 7:19am, in the last 24 months, have you posted similar, ‘simple & logical observations’ about a variety of topics affecting Japan?:
*- “The [insert here] "solution" suggested betrays a deep ignorance about [insert here] and the [insert here] problem they are trying to solve. Seeing how the other measures included in the plan are much more reasonable. It feels like [insert here] was included because [insert here] someone liked it even if everybody else realized it was just nonsense.” *
They are way “Past Due” and it’s well past time for them to go!

If some think it’s important, @8:41am, to focus on the suspect instead of ‘the victims’:
“CNN)Police in Show Low, Arizona, on Sat shot a suspect who they say struck multiple cyclists with a vehicle during a bicycle race. The suspect is also in critical but stable condition, police said in a news release.
According to police, a suspect in a Ford F-150 hit multiple bicyclists at about 7:25 a.m. local time during a benefit race in Show Low, a city about 180 miles northeast of Phoenix.
The suspect fled the scene and was pursued by police, who soon engaged and shot the suspect behind a hardware store. Authorities have only identified the suspect as a 35-year-old White man.”
For some ‘unstated’ reason, the editors at CNN chose to capitalize the first letter of the word “White”?

Let’s hope everyone can recover from this senseless event.
(CNN) ”seven victims were taken to the hospital, four are in critical condition and two are in critical but stable condition, police said. Another two or three victims were walk-ins at the hospital and are in stable condition, police said.” -

From a mediator’s ‘objective standpoint’, You both appear to have ‘reached a consensus’ on desiring to “deal in absolute truths”:
- @falseflagsteve 9:05pm: “blvtzpk - Another conspiracy theory? I’m one of those who likes to deal with facts not speculate to confirm my own biases.” -
*- @blvtzpk 9:16pm: “FFS - Bottom line, were you diagnosed by a medical prof’l who did tests; Did the professional say Covid, or did they say they thought Covid?; What steps did you you have to take after diagnosed with Covid? - Or, are you saying that you self-diagnosed and think you had Covid because you were sick with Covid-like symptoms?” - *
A response is anticipated. What say you next?

Agreed @personiamnow 4:13pm. Let’s never forget the victim. Her simple dream to bring some happiness to other people, ended by someone else’s selfishness. Little solace from his capture for her family and friends. Yet, Maybe this young woman can eventually “Rest In Peace” once justice is fittingly served.

Extremely distressing events.They are sparing no expense nor manpower to seize assets and any and all incrementing information Apple Daily would have retained:
- “More than 500 police officers raided the paper's newsroom on Thursday, carting away computers, hard drives and reporters' notepads.“ -
By Thur’s account, Jun 17 in “Apple Daily editors arrested under Hong Kong security law”, it was reported “200 officers”.
- “More than 200 police officers were involved in the search of Apple Daily’s offices. The govt said a warrant was obtained to look for evidence of a suspected violation of the national security law.” -
The last vestiges of any free speech and free press are almost entirely gone for our beloved Hong Kong.

Back in April @DesertTortoise 9:45am, someone was reasonably advocating ‘a shotgun blast’ to the bear’s face was enough deterrent to give a surprised hunter enough time to put some distance between theirselves and the attacking bear.

Seems more rural Japanese people would have shotguns as opposed to rifles. In that scenario, it seems reasonable, and more practical, than a rifle, yes?
