Is it retaliation by nature?

No, this was man made.

Well, you can’t shut down the entire business sector that would be catastrophic, they do need help, however, the country really botched this so badly that if a wave comes and that is what seems to be happening, they need to create a better strategy....if they even have one and use a lot of financial assistance that need to be adequately distribute to the various medical and health sectors that will need them as well as trained professionals (and I don’t think they have enough) and it’s going to be a lot, be prepared because it doesn’t seem like they are.

Nations get the governments they want.

Now imagine if you live in a socialist country where leaders make even more money....

From the looks of it I’m just glad Abe and his cabinet are taking this pandemic so very seriously, now imagine if they were lazy and not being diligent about the severity and spreading of this virus.

Play a lot of music, if you play an instrument whatever that may be, play it, listen to the radio, iTunes, Spotify (avoid the Dixie Chicks and Taylor Swift) watch videos, download or rent movies and if you have kids think of fun and creative ways to kill the time or go somewhere to a more remote spot, the hills, mountain, beach, river etc. chill a bit, but do it safely and cautiously.

Translation, it’s probably a nightmare over there. I remember in the 90’s when Kim I’ll Sung tried to hide the massive number of deaths from the public claiming they had an abundance of food which we all know now it was a lie and close to one million or 5% of the population.

Messages from the Islamic extremist groups show concern about the virus mixed with bravado, asserting that it is punishment for non-Muslims

Okaaay......

Al-Qaida suggested in a statement Tuesday that non-Muslims use their time in quarantine to learn about Islam.

What? So when the extremists start falling like flies will they still claim it’s the infidels fault?

Nope, to gun down government officials who you think are coming after your AK-47 - ones that work for your President.

Those Same government officials that lied and tried to take the President out, twice, so we got a little bit of a disagreement on that one.

The NRA is now a radical far-right fringe group that doesn't represent the majority of responsible firearms owners.

I completely disagree.

You called yourself all of those, I didn't. I'm a responsible gun owner

As I am as well, despite the liberal name calling.

The NRA does not reveal how many members there are.

So as a member I’m guessing somewhere around what I quoted and for anyone to think membership numbers are decreasing is not dealing with serious reality. I know liberals wish and hope, but that’s not going to happen. That’s like saying to liberals PP donors are shrinking.

How is having a gun going to protect you against this Virus ?

Not the virus, would be looters. I lived through the LA riots, that was more than enough for me.

I'm aware the alt right use terms like minority and 'vast' majority differently, but this is what your Gallup link reports.

Why is it that the alt left have to link race to worm it’s way into every argument?

Responsible firearms owners use their weapons for sport, legal hunting, and recreation.

...and protecting family and property, don’t forget that!

They favor gun locks, background checks, and an assault weapon ban. Most have left the NRA because of its radical policies. 

No, more than 5 million members and for the ones that left, more will come, I didn’t leave, No way!

Gun nutters are scared, and feel weak and helpless - and use their guns to overcome this sense of powerlessness. They don't use their guns for sport or recreation - they say they want them to protect themselves from their neighbors and the government. They say they are pro-law enforcement and pro-military - but at the same time say that if either of them came to take their weapons away, they'd gun them down.

That’s ok, call us scared, call us fat or bald or ugly, none of us could care less, lol! Gun owners like don’t flinch at any labels that liberals want to call us, we won’t get rid of our guns, you guys can’t make us, we can buy as much as we want, when we want and can enjoy them anyway we see fit and if liberals don’t like it...oh, well...lol

Gun nutters shouldn't be trusted with a dinner knife

Liberals can’t be trusted with a quarter.

Posted in: Virus infections not rampant nationwide but Japan on brink: Abe See in context

Make sure you have enough ventilators. The UK government predicts they will need 30,000 at the peak. The Japanese population is double the UK. Do you have enough?

Make sure you have enough hospital beds for infectious diseases. Field hospitals are being set up in London, Birmingham and Manchester providing 10,000 extra beds. On the TV last night they said Tokyo had only 500 beds for infectious diseases - all of which are now full. What are you doing about it??

Stop sleeping and take action now.

I would be surprised if Abe and his cabinet thought real hard and deep about that, seems like they were heavily focused on the Olympics as that was there main priority. Should this thing explode wide open, I guarantee you the system will be overwhelmed and what’s really scary is, I don’t think Japan or the hospitals can stomach or deal with that kind of heavy stress on a massive scale like in the other countries. I just don’t see it.

France is exempted but French Polynesia and New Caledonia are not!

And New Zealand?!

Whatever!

Institutional xenophobia (maybe not) or attention to post item handling practice?

if attention to levels of COVID, some surprises on the country list

Makes No sense whatsoever! So what about the post coming from Tokyo will everyone else be protected and not allowed to receive mail that area since that’s ground zero for the virus? Jus sayin’........

So, we can trust the intelligence community when it is not trying to determine whether Donny is corrupt.

That’s up to you? I personally do.

Got it. It’s the same standard the fans of Big D use when determining if a poll or source is credible.

They’re liberal and from the fake news that the President always calls them, but liberals defend.

I was told, Japanese politicians never sleep during their sessions and the reason why they close their eyes is because they contemplate and listen deeply to what the other politicians are saying. It’s a form of respect. Reminds me of the longer intestine thingy.....

Posted in: Trump casts doubt on Chinese coronavirus figures See in context

Can we trust the US intelligence agencies? What say you, Trump Supporters??

Yes, particularly when it comes to China.

(You are the ones that have told us to ignore the president and you’ve cast aspersions on the intelligence community in the past, so you must be able to tell us if we can trust the intelligence community now.)

Well, besides the top echelon trying to get rid of Trump and failing miserably at it, the majority of agents are honest and decent hardworking people, trust them more than Comey or the other fools that shot and missed this President.

That's one gun owner's gun owner-centric perspective. Gun owners are a minority of the US population.

A minority? Uhhh....not really.

https://news.gallup.com/poll/264932/percentage-americans-own-guns.aspx

I think the non-gun owning majority of the country probably could list a range of reasons they might not trust the government. One would be hearing government 'leaders' blatantly lying - repeatedly.

Like this....

People don’t trust the government because they know the president is completely incompetent.

They don’t trust the government because liberals for years and years have been talking about either amending the 2nd amendment or confiscating firearms. This is why they trust Trump because he knows those laws will be protected.

Posted in: Deaths pass 1,900 in New York; Cuomo calls those who won't stay at home 'selfish' See in context

The biggest joke is, every liberal is being tuned out, that’s the only one great thing that has come out from this tragedy, we don’t have to be subjected to one bit of it for now at least and I do give Cuomo some credit for this.

Cuomo cracked down even harder on public gatherings in the face of the coronavirus, calling residents who disregarded stay-at-home rules "selfish." He told New York City police to more aggressively enforce rules for social distancing as deaths in the state shot up to nearly 2,000.

He started late, downplayed it, but at least he’s on it and is doing the best he can for the city.

Posted in: Experts warn of health care collapse in Japan if virus keeps spreading See in context

My Japanese company director still thinks Japan is doing a great job at handling the virus. He says that foreigners don’t follow order and have no self discipline that’s why we see so many cases. 

It is great to see the ignorance of Japanese. If postponement of Olympics and death of Shimura Ken don't wake the Japanese up, I don't know what will.

Well. don’t worry, the government is handing out face masks. And free, so we should all be OK because the facemask will prevent further infections.

Yeah, seems logical in this country. So we’re all safe after all. Keep everything open, get all the schools ready, because face masks will stop at all.

Phil, by law, you have the right to refuse the work if it is life threatening.

I’m so happy that I’m self-employed, less stress and frustration for me. If I worked for a company in Japan, I would never go to work in this pandemic. I guess I would have to quit if they forced me to come in.

Exactly, therefore we will never really know the actual number count, so to boast that the numbers are low is insidiously false and deceptive.

Posted in: Experts warn of health care collapse in Japan if virus keeps spreading See in context

Yesterday 266 new cases

42 recovered

0 died 

Japan seems to be doing a good job

Start random testing and start doing mandatory autopsies until this virus is over and I’ll guarantee you those numbers will be a lot higher, A LOT HIGHER.

Point missed. My point was gun companies profiting from the effects of this virus, especially those getting government permission to stay open when other businesses are shut, should be willing to return some of their profits to those suffering.

Many gun owners and companies claim to be 'patriots': let them show they care about their nation's people. As more than just people to profit from.

How much does PP donate or the teachers and workers unions?

It makes sense that people don’t trust the government given Constantly Lyin Donny is in charge and he downplayed this situation and continues a to contradict the experts.

No, it’s because of the possible lock and breakdown of the society, but that wasn’t the only time that gun sales spiked...

Don’t go out on the weekends or at night. But please get on the crowded trains and report to work as usual during the weekdays. 

The Japanese government care more about economic health than the health of its citizens. 

And the sad part is, most Japanese go along with that cause they are all programmed from birth, “がんばれ!!!”

Pathetic.

Yup, can’t argue with that. Hit the nail right on the head.

Extending a hand, curious to see if Liberals in the US are mature enough to accept it.

It might be very hard, that would go against everything they were trying to convince the public about evil Russia.
