The problem is the tax policy, not the wealthy. Get the facts straight.

No, get a reality fix. The tax laws are written by the rich when the republicans run government. Like the massive Trump tax cut that went 90% to the rich who he served. Only democrats raise taxes on the rich as Clinton and Obama did when they were in power. Biden will do the same as is so clearly necessary. Buffet said years ago the his secretary pays more in taxes then he does, at least he was honest about that.

Posted in: Sports days have positive effects, not only in improving physical ability but also in allowing students to bond. They nurture a sense of cooperation through physical education classes held prior to the event. Although schools have been asked to take various measures and reduce school hours amid the pandemic, I hope sports days will be kept as a way to enhance the learning experience for students.

It is absolute torture. Our kids schools decided in their wisdom to combine grammar and JH together making the full day program 7 or 8 hours. And the laborious speeches to start the event by various politicos and administrative folks. I would prefer to have my teeth drilled. Our kids were all into it as they had trained for weeks for the event. But in 8 hours they did something active for about 20 minutes or so. The rest of the time they just sat and watched. So the better name for SD is the Waste Time Day. I learned that smart parents just take off during the event and come back at the end.

And yes the human pyramid display is semi-torture. The US military forced prisoners at Abu Ghraib to do something much worse but similar. That particular SD move needs to be stopped.

Do not purchase any product or service from companies that remain silent on the Olympics. The local medical community has made their announcement in Japan and basically they are saying the Olympics is a super spreader event that may even spawn new variations of the virus. So there could be a Tokyo 2021 variant later this year. Companies need to be punished for not breaking out from the pack and sheepishly leading Japan and her citizens to a fifth wave or worse. See the company list below.

by beating an experienced and intelligent opponent who had been dubbed "the most qualified person to ever run for president". Dumb people can't do that.

Yes they can because dumb people vote. Exhibit A Senator Tommy Tuberville of Alabama. He could not name the three branches of government in the USA when asked but was elected with 60% of the vote last year. Republicans elected Sarah Palin, another one a couple of beers short of a six-pack.

Posted in: Biden to GOP: 'Don't get in the way' of infrastructure plan See in context

Republicans are happy to pay trillions for fake wars that never end and to provide give-a-ways to the very rich but for programs to help Americans who are falling behind, they block progress. Biden is making America great again, not building fake walls, and the republicans who are in the pockets of the rich fight against making American great again despite the MAGA slogan. I guess when you think invading the capital building and conducting sedition is making America great again real progress is not interesting.

Posted in: New COVID-19 cases in U.S plummet to lowest levels since last June See in context

Amazing what competent management can do to address a crisis, or hoax as the republicans called the deadly virus early on last year. This proves what I have said for decades now, republicans cannot manage government at all, they simply fail at everything. Only democrats actuality get things done and make progress. Florida 3406 cases reported today, Florida has been proven to under report cases, and California 778. And California has nearly twice the population of Florida. Huge difference in outcome. Top ten states for infections per million people has nine republican states and only one democratic. Failure, incompetence, fake. Three words that describe the Trump party. Corruption is a given.

Palenstine is an open air prison brutally repressed by the rightwing leaders in Israel. Blaming the Palestinian people for trying to stay alive under state terrorism conditions is ridiculous and anyone other than the Israel apologist crowd, mostly religious types, can clearly see this. The apartheid policies by Israel are what causes conflict and are war crimes basically and also not in the best interest of Israel itself. Israel has had 50 years to fix this problem but it has only gotten worse over time. BDS is the only way things will get better.

In the end they will find out Trump was pulling the strings behind the invasion and was, as is so clear, a traitor to his country. Americans attacking Americans, police being killed and maimed, people literally defecating in the offices of Congress and on and on. Trump will end up in jail for other reasons but this is another criminal act by him and an unprecedented attack on the USA by a sitting President. And do not doubt he will rally his deluded followers again at some point and the invasion will occur again.

Posted in: Who fired rockets against ordinary citizens first? Our hearts are with Israel. See in context

Israel is a nuclear power, Gaza has rockets that do not fly straight and are nearly all blocked by the anti-rocket defense that the USA helped Israel to build. No sense of balance at all in this conflict. It is like the slaves in the USA fighting against their owners. And what is really behind the apartheid policy, the thing that poisons everything, religion. The right wing religion types in Israel, just like the right wing types in the USA, believe their savior is coming back soon if the Arabs are wiped out. Just horrible racist cruel behavior of course justified by using the name of God to kill others. Plenty of examples of that in the Bible for sure, no much has changed in 2000 years.

Would someone remind us of why a "vaccine" is needed for something that has a 99.97% survival rate?

Would someone remind you what a pandemic is? So 11,000 deaths in Japan is too few to matter? How about 600,000 in the USA, still too few? I am sure the families of the dead would agree with you that their loss is not real as it is not important statistically to you. Comments like this are the reason why half the deaths from Covid have occurred. JT should ban such dangerous uninformed propaganda.

Yes, how can these goofy projects started by Trump the Loser be stopped if he is still the President.

Trump is getting so fat lately that if he does enter the WH again he might eat it. Amazing he is getting fat now as he is playing golf everyday, check that, he did that as well in his first term. Cheated at golf of course as he does in everything else he does.

When he is finally in jail he will lose weight then.

Like every Democrat elected after the Republicans destroy the economy and government, usually both. the massive cleanup has begun. Clinton after Reagan/Bush Sn, Obama after Bush Jr tanked the USA economy and now Biden after the worst and most corrupt President ever elected, Trump. Republicans at the Presidential level are not electable any longer since they cannot manage government, which is why they have to cheat to win.

If this country is a functioning democracy the LDP would be doomed due to the colossal pandemic failure response. How can Taiwan get it so right and Japan so wrong? The LDP deserves to be voted out but it will not happen. They let the Fukushima disaster happened and suffered no consequences back then either. Japan is trapped by its own horrible government management.

The sedition party, long operating unofficially, is now formally born to replace the Republican Party. Congratulations to you all who believe a big lie because a big liar tells it to you over and over again. Wow, amazing how truth truly does not matter any longer for the right wing folks. They want to destroy themselves and take the country down as well.

Posted in: If a person dies immediately after inoculation, it is only natural that the bereaved family would want to know the truth. Medical institutions need to try to provide careful explanations. See in context

More reason why we need full transparency and I personally won't take it, but others want to, go right ahead.

So then if you are asymptomatic you spread the virus to others like a Typhoid Mary. This disease is not just about you, its about others that you can kill through your actions. Like not wearing a mask.

This is why a fourth wave is occurring, due to selfishness and basic public health being turned partisan by the rightwing crowd and/or by religious propaganda.

The USA has fully vaccinated 100 million people, if there were serious side effects from the shots then they would have surfaced as was the case with the J&J jab. But officially 600.000 people have died, probably double that amount as under Trump deaths were not reported accurately, and yet somehow that is not significant to those blind to the facts of the pandemic. Vaccinations should be mandatory to protect the general pubic from idiots.

Posted in: Suga says he has never put Olympics first and that IOC has final say See in context

Yoshihide Suga said on Monday that he has never "put the Olympics first"

Abe and Koike did for sure.

So this is a perfect storm for the colossal losers who run the LDP. They dithered on an active response to the virus so that Japan has very few inoculations. The general population is at huge risk. The LDP did not or could not set up medical systems to handle a spike in the virus so Osaka and Tokyo cannot handle a spike in the infection rates, which we seem to be experiencing. Also the Go Japan campaign was insane and is in part why infections rose so dramatically earlier this year. Really the LDP is criminally responsible for the increasing death rates in Japan due to mismanagement of the pandemic. There is no excuse for this total failure. At least with Trump you knew he was fine with 100000s of Americans dying, he did not care about them, but in Japan the government knows the basic welfare of the people is their number one task.

Considering the extremely high recovery rate there's not much to worry about.

10,000 plus Japanese people are not worrying about the virus now, they are dead. 35 died yesterday. Nearly 600,000 Americans are not much worried anymore either.

It would be so much more fair if only the idiots who say things like the above got infected, like Trump for example who nearly died and would have if he were not the President. But the virus attacks everyone without regard to intelligence.

Was, is and will always be a horrific disaster for the country and for the USA. Trillions wasted on an invasion and a 20 year war that leaves the country in control by the same characters from 2001. The Taliban was willing to give up OBL to the USA but Bush/Cheney wanted shock and awe and promised a democracy in the country after destroying it. And then they let OBL get away in the hills of Tora Bora so they could invade Iraq based on lies. But how the rightwing crowd cheered this all on at the time. Liberals know it was doomed and would end up exactly as it has, another massive failure by war monger republicans like Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld. Thousand of lives lost for nothing and trillions of dollars wasted just like Trump said many times, one of the few times he was right about anything.

Trump hits Bush: Invading Iraq 'the single worst decision ever made

President Trump blasted former President George W. Bush on Saturday over the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, calling it "the single worst decision ever made."

Speaking at a closed-door event with Republican donors in Florida, Trump mocked Bush's intellect and compared his decision to invade Iraq to "throwing a big fat brick into a hornet's nest."

"Here we are, like the dummies of the world, because we had bad politicians running our country for a long time,"

"In order to protect the rights of smokers, it's important for smokers first of all to mind their manners," Kobayashi says.

Smoker have to be forced not to litter and cause cancer of others around them with their disgusting habit. We all see addicted losers smoking in areas designated for non-smoking forcing others to inhale the 5000 chemicals in a cigarette which they then throw on the ground when done as if the world was their ashtray.

Smokers, here is a fix for your pathetic situation, quit.

Regarding TGIF in Shibuya, non-smokers let the smokers their spread cancer to themselves. Never go to a restaurant that allows smoking.
