Posted in: Kishida asks firms to match pay hikes to inflation See in context

Before asking corporations and small businesses for pay hikes, the government should give the economy a kickstart by pumping money into it.

Right, yeah. Because the incessant handouts over the past few years worked really well didn't they...

We were always going to end up here, that's why some of us were vocal about it back in 2020 onwards...

Posted in: Ex-KAT-TUN singer Tanaka goes on trial for drug possession See in context

Obviously the reason for the arrest is just an excuse, the police was onto Tanaka and clearly understood he was not over his addiction.

Do you have any evidence of that? Double blind studies? Links?

Anyone found violating the church's policies would be "strictly punished", he added.

Scary when a church thinks they have the god-given right to "punish" anyone without seeking legal intervention. Even more scary when authorities are aware of it and sit back to allow them to be a self-managing entity. Some child abuse that was not investigated comes to mind...

Posted in: Long COVID keeping 31,000 Australians away from work every day See in context

Without evidence to prove this is in any way significative for the amount of people that is taking leave this is just a baseless supposition. Hardly any value as an argument.

Evidence? You've never known someone to take paid sick days when they could have worked? Do you need a study to know when your being mugged? The evidence is all around if you care to see...

One aspect that is glaringly lacking in ALL of your very many painful posts, Virusrex, are the many complex psychological repercussions to the world we now live in thanks to the exaggeration of COVID-19.

Before you stuff words into my mouth, I'm not denying that there is a virus and that it makes people sick. I'm not denying "long covid" either. I've had "long influenza" after all and it was difficult work for a while. I am pointing out that these things can, and certainly have (!), been blown out of proportion by the many institutions that stand to gain from it.

How many mal-adjusted kids have been put on unnecessary drugs in recent decades we will never know. But once you tell that child they have "ABC" syndrome, they certainly believe that they do and play the role accordingly. Some kids certainly do need medical intervention, some just need better guidance and less cause of anxiety in their lives...

The mind is a powerful thing. Look to the Stanford Prison Experiment if you need a study for that...

Posted in: Long COVID keeping 31,000 Australians away from work every day See in context

When people are offered the choice to stay at home with full pay, they often take it. Especially when they are constantly told how they are so very close to death every day via mainstream and social media. The "Great Australian Sick-day" is alive and well in 2022...

It's a mystery that people aren't rioting in the streets.

Japan did indeed find a unique way of keeping people so busy and barely financed that they don't have the time and energy have opinions on these things...

As we don't have a break down of co-morbidities and age groups, how can you assume that 278 people died directly because of COVID?

but the slow break down of social services as so many people get sick and are absent from work for 1-2 weeks…

... is due to people being forced to take the time off because they "tested" positive. Most barely even have the sniffles...

So when is South Korea going to recognize it's true role as part of the Japanese Empire 1910-1945?

Curious.. if Korea was happy to be part of the Japanese Empire: why do so many South Korean people still hate Japan? Because Japan left Korea?
