For Suga and LDP, opening the Olympics is the only card left for them to get support of people as the general election is coming in Autumn. That is why he sticks to the Olympics so strongly despite the danger of spreading corona.

He may know that he will not be able to stay in the prime minister's residence long and has to return to his present diet member apartment house.

Suga says it is IOC which decide to open Olympics or not. On the other hand, he says Japan earnestly wants to hold the Olympics while majority of the population want the Olympics cancelled or postponed. I am puzzled.

It looks like Japanese system is different. I do not check FB and Google for news. There are many web sites we can check for news such as Yahoo, Biglobe, Goo, Livedoor, Infoseek etc. I think they have contracts with news services Kyodo and Jiji as well as newspapers and magazines. I presume they are paying money for their uses of news and stories.

I am writing from Japan. I do not check FB and Google for news. I even did not know FB put news. To read news there are many places I can check. They have contracts with news services Kyodo and Jiji, and other major newspapers Asahi, Yomiuri etc. I think they pay some money to the news sources.

Trump's speech is sparkled with wit. Mitch McConell "dour, sullen, unsmiling and political hack" North Korea's Kim "a rocket man," COVID-19 "Chinese virus" etc. etc.

I do not care about the money to host U.S. Forces. I more care about how long Japan leaves its defense to a foreign military. Japanese people became nonchalant and stopped thinking about it.

Philippine president Duterte said an interesting thing. To host a foreign military, it is necessary the military of the country as strong as the hosted one. I agree.

Do majority of Koreans agree to anti-Japan moves? I heard that President Biden scolded Korean government for their impetuous anti-Japan attitude. It is hurting the unity of the free world.

Apparently, State of Emergency worked. Avoiding congregation, social distancing and wearing masks. I wish the vaccines will stop repetition of this abstinence.

Oct.-Dec. was good because of Go-To-campaign. But it will sink Jan.-March due to State of Emergency. Japanese stocks rose hoping the end of the corona by the vaccines. When the corona is held down, the expectation will end and real economy will matter after that.

Skeptical Japanese people have a doubt if the vaccines developed for Caucasians fit to Asians. What about give a try to Chinse vaccines for them.

Everybody has freedom of speech. Trump was 100 times more offensive than Mori but he woke up many people. I am afraid the trend suffocate freedom of speech.
