This officer is of the wrong skin tone to warrant or/and evoke any outrage, rioting, or looting.

This is an interesting reversal for the UK. In 1997, one of the conditions of the hand-over is that England would not grant access for Hong Kong residents by default, as they were afraid at that time that there would be a mass influx from Hong Kong into England. More than 20 years later, they've apparently done an about face.

I can understand it.

What if Trump is re-elected, or he tries to call off the election to keep from losing and risk prison for financial fraud (the reason he is fighting so hard to keep his taxes secret and away from NY prosecutors)?

Trump has already said that a vaccine developed in the US will be for Americans.

It's foolish to trust that another country will share it.

Japan is going ahead with their own vaccine because look at how the world is right now. Trump is pulling out of WHO, China is flexing its muscles, EU is sorta together, but the universal medical sphere is very chaotic. Even the future for the esteemed Center for Disease Control, who Japan respects is uncertain. I don't blame Japan.

Doesn't need to be. Age and health related mortality are fairly universal with CoVid. There have been undoubtedly hundreds of millions of people worldwide who have encountered the virus and either did not become ill or became only mildly ill. So, yes, young athletes have only a minimal chance of being affected by the virus.

I really hope JB can honor his words to bring in HK people when China actually push forward the said national security law.and this move will cause China big loss because the would-be applicant to UK are all highly civilised and wealthy people who will move to Britain with their value know-how and wealth.

Attempting to distract from the issue with a false equivalency and straw man argument is counterproductive to the conversation.

This is a legitimate challenge. Trying to tut-tut it away does not invalidate it.

Same-sex couples generally do not have the same legal benefits as married couples. However, again, no other non-marital relationships between individuals—two sisters, a pair of spinsters, college roommates, et al.—share those benefits, either.

Why should they?

If same-sex couples face inequality in this area, so does every other pair of unmarried citizens who have deep, loving commitments to each other. Therefore, why should same-sex couples receive preferential treatment just because they are sexually involved?

And please do not answer “love,” since the same-sex lifestyle might be about lack or loneliness or lust or loyalty...but not love. Love is wanting the well-being of another.

Genuine love is not giving your approval or facilitating behavior that will damage another person in body, soul and spirit, i.e. the same-sex lifestyle.

They have decided that Trump will be re-elected, so the current trouble will eventually blow over.

No thats just the $3trillion in stimulous money flooding the markets, still got 30million unemployed, record bankruptsies and bailout of companies. Companies cut staff in times of turmoil, if anything the markets are just creating another bubble like Trumps 1st one. What counts is main street when people dont have any prospects of stable employment or steady income they turn of the people that are responsible for the mess

In a country that does not value life while giving a higly variable price on person depending on one's social role, I am not surprised. A worker is expendable, a king or queen is not.

In my country, we have had revolution for that matter some 231 years ago.

This is a simple case of a local government unjustly seizing greater power to harass and punish any citizen who does not agree with the current sexual political agenda of removing objective standards of equality and, eventually, marriage from society.

Martin Luther King, Jr. appealed to Natural Law in his Letter from a Birmingham Jail.

"How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law."

Nature and reason inform us that a man is not a woman, yet this pairing is complementary and the only natural union. Any law to the contrary is unjust.

Burning Bush:

Let's be equal and fair, any two humans, regardless of the reason for them to live together, should get recognition.

Attempting to distract from the issue with a false equivalency and straw man argument is counterproductive to the conversation. The certificates are plainly geared toward further recognition of two people's right to love one another regardless of gender and receiving some of the benefits traditional couples enjoy and should be beneath being brought into the conversation.

@zichi: Black people were disproportionately among those killed, the group found.

Yes - people agree generally with those stats. The question is why are these things occurring mostly in Progressive cities?

You stated that I have no answers. Well, I have not seen yours either. You just keep stating the problem and avoiding the culpability of Progressives.

South Korea to shed developing-nation WTO status

Another news item on another WTO decision against South Korea and in favour of Japan. Which comes from Bloomberg, September 10, 2019.

And there's even more news if you Google it.

There are so many South Korean cases lost to the WTO. That even this organization is losing confidence in this country.
