    1. @Stephen P that was so friendly and not at all hateful or divisive of you to say BLAM BLAM BLAM

    1. @Danny R People who are vaccinated can still spread the virus. Over 1 year on and you haven’t grasped the basics. Stupid?

    2. @Danny R wearing a mask is NOT being stupid, I keep wearing a mask because it has helped with my allergies and if I can still protect someone else then so be it.

    3. @psycobleach46 tullis I’m all for democrats continuing to wear their face diapers indefinitely. This way my kids can spot who to avoid because nothing is stranger than a mask. Stranger danger

    4. @psycobleach46 tullis when did other people health become your responsibility?? Those same people demanding everyone else mask up vant even bother to keep their weight In check and constantly make poor health care decisions. Why should I be punished for your poor health decisions going forward, because your a high risk person. Ive had covid with mild to asymptomatic symptoms. The whole covid thing in my eyes is done and my governer desantis agrees.

  1. What could possibly go wrong when you bring hundreds of people from every country in the world, to live in a closed village for 4 weeks while they eat, sleep, exercise, compete together….and then go back to their respective countries. DURING A PANDEMIC!

    1. @Deborah Freedman You get to make all the stupid comments. Why stop the roll you’ve been on at least since yesterday?

    2. @DAVID so in other words you have NO actual FACTS to back up your claims, typical with you people

    3. @psycobleach46 tullis dont bother, just report him, the dudes been spreadin misinformation on the vaccine for a few videos now. Be best to report the spammers and misinformation spreaders

  2. When l had rubbed my bottom with a toiIet paper, oh, l noticed the BLM mural there in a brown dye

    1. @Air Marshal Bill If you notice dirty tracks of wheels over the BLM murals in streets, use your golden stream to wash the dirt off firmly. So do I. BLM!!!!

  3. Do a real story of how the Biden administration flew illegal immigrants to Tennessee and just dropped them off for the states to deal with instead of Bidens administration….….that’s right liberal media protects their own.

    1. @Air Marshal Bill apparently you’ve never been there it’s absolutely beautiful but then again you probably live in a blue shithole

    2. Kor Kalba they don’t show it because it is a lie, you all would rather follow crap than honey.

    1. The world is flat and Trump is an alien who likes to dress as a woman. Now get to bed Junior, tomorrow you learn the letter that comes after Q.

    2. 4+ years of screaming “RussiaPutinTrumpTraitorTreason” is coming back to bite them in the butter

  4. Simple, no jab, no participation, from management, athletes to the lowest worker, anyone directly involved.
    The rest of us watch it on TV.

    1. I’m firing anyone who gets the vaccine. I can’t have stupid people representing my company.

  5. “Amid Covid Spike, 83 Percent Of People In Japan Want Olympics Postponed” thereby motivating us, the people of America, to redouble our efforts to rapidly find out at any given moment, including even while On-Line, who among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order to “Convince It Forward” for them to call their doctor and to self-quarantine per CDC guidelines in hopes of stopping this pandemic instead of having more “Mourning In America.” Thus, we’re hoping for the best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the B.1.1.7 lineage mutations and others like the P.1, B.1.135, B.1.351, B.1.429, B.1.525, & B.1.617.1-3 lineage mutations combining to render current COVID vaccines no longer effective.

    1. I’m firing anyone who gets vaccinated. I can’t have stupid people representing my company.

  6. They cancelled the Olympics during both world wars. Why can’t they do the same now? Just have 2024 the next Summer Games, and play it by ear for the Winter Games scheduled for 2022

    1. That was easy for you to say… not so easy for the 15 year old that’s been training for 80% of their lives for the opportunity.

    2. @Fraudster Biden-Dickknuckle I never said it was easy, but it seems necessary, especially if many in the host country feel this way. Also, even if they give the go-ahead, how many athletes will choose not to compete? This happened to a limited degree in 2016 with Zika

    1. @Fraudster Biden-Dickknuckle Fair enough. I still think people should vax, though

    2. @Harvey Manfredsenjenson precautionary huh? Our bodies produce cancer cells 7 times a year on the average; should we get chemotherapy as a precaution too? Just wondering since it’s a thing we all have in common… Your body, your choice, none of my business one way or the other.

  7. The Japanese government has totally mishandled the pandemic. After postponing the Olympics, surely they ought to have aggressively vaccinate the country in preparation for visitors. The Olympics would give them the much needed economy boost, not to mention recovering millions they spent in preparation. It’d be irresponsible to go ahead with the Olympics at this stage, not only from the standpoint of safeguarding its citizens, but also preventing cross transmission of the variances of the virus worldwide.

  8. I am a nurse and have seen firsthand the devastation of Covid, but I really feel sorry for the athletes who have worked so hard. All I can say is that whatever the decision, to both the organisers and the athletes, please stay safe.
