Catholic church, the wealthiest religious business in the world. I think they can afford the refurb themselves.
This couldn't be further from the truth.

Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot and countless other socialist and communist despots banned guns, before slaughtering 100 million of their own people.
Thinking criminals will obey laws is lunacy. It is the belief of irrational children.
Murder is illegal, but it didn't stop this subhuman from shooting up a Mosque.
All you do is disarm law-abiding people who want to protect themselves or their family.

Criminals: "Oh, ok! We know we don't obey laws, but we'll totally comply with this one."

It took 10 meetings with Soviet Russian to end the Cold War.
Simpletons do not understand. Simpletons who want an aggressive and nuclear North Korea, simply out of spite over losing an election, is grotesque, morally repugnant and absolutely shameful. Millions of lives are at stake.

Trying to imply that the US is at fault for Venezuela's utter and abject failure will only make you ridiculous.
It was socialism. Again.

Global Warming is a hoax, perpetrated by unemployed scientists who are desperate for fame and money, propagated by low information, low intelligence sheep whose desire to belong to a cause outweighs their desire for rational thought.

"alcohol and cigarettes are way worse."
They are not 'way worse'.
That being said, government should, for the most part, stay out of people's lives - until their actions directly infringe on the rights of another. Pot laws, seat belt laws, traffic cams, and countless others infringe on the most basic of all human rights: The pursuit of happiness.

My LA-based mother is getting long in the tooth but still spends a month or so in Chicago at an extended-stay hotel every year (after New York, it's her favorite place). She's frail but loves the city. Myths about its dangers are mostly false.
2018 Statistical Facts:
Shot & Killed: 400
Shot & Wounded: 2004
Total Shot: 2404
Total Homicides: 465
A person is MURDERED every 14 hours.
That's not safe.
Facts don't care about your mom's anecdotal experience.

Chicago has a population of 2.7 million, 76% is Democrat. 1,528,582 voted for HRC. So a "few thousand protesters" is pathetic and not news worthy.
The last Republican was in office in 1931. Chicago has been a cesspool of murder, drugs, violence and crime for 70+ years.Chicago blaming Donald Trump for ANYTHING is LUDICROUS. They created this violent mess.
Doing the same thing ( voting Democrat ) and expecting different results ( ending drugs and violence) is the definition of insanity. -Albert Einstein.

"Nike wanted to choose an NFL player to be the face of its ad campaign, instead of selecting an out of work, cop-hating, anti-American quarterback, they should have gone with Pat Tillman, who accurately represents believing in something while sacrificing everything."
That comment got 4 down-votes. What kind of piece of garbage craps on a hero like Pat Tillman?

"Old angry white guys are not a core demographic for Nike," he said.
Nike's demo may be 14 year-olds, but it's the "old, angry white guys" who are actually buying their overpriced crap for their kids.
They've already lost 4 billion.

"Akira Koike, head of the secretariat of the opposition Japanese Communist Party, expressed anger, saying "the worst postwar labor legislation change" had been forced through parliament by power of numbers."
If a communist is angry and against it, it must be amazing.

Here's a crazy idea: How about allowing private business owners decide themselves what to do with the property and businesses they own? And then Japanese public can either choose to frequent that establishment, or stay away? Let the free market decide who wins and loses.

Five times did Israel offer land to Palestine with only one condition: Peace.
Five times did Palestine reject their offer.
You cannot blame Israel for defending their own, recognized, sovereign nation of over 3,000 years from an invading force of terrorists.

Once again, California passes a law that keeps the low and middle class from actually owning property.
There is a mass exodus because Americans are simply tried of the incompetent left-wing leadership passing meaningless legislation like this, while buckets of human feces and used syringes line city streets.
Renting a uHaul trailer in California is almost an impossible thing to do.
In Texas, they're plentiful and super cheat.
There is a reason for this.

A woman damaged a guard rail, and you're reacting like she mowed down a family of baby pandas.
The drivers DO were helmets, seat belts, gloves, goggles, and the cars have roll bars.
MariCar should be commended for what they're going: Creating a fun new business concept in order to bring people and money into Japan. Which it sorely needs.

Two of Japan's critical problems: A decline in population and a slow economy - can be fixed with a simple law: No more than 25 overtime hours per month for salary-men.
If you can't figure out how to get your job done in 9 hours, then you're doing it wrong. If you can, and you're just doing more of it; then your life is out of balance.
Those simple fixes - along with a complete overhaul and modernization of the antiquated and, quite frankly, embarrassing gomi/waste management system (which prevents people from buying new things because throwing the old thing away is too much of a pain in the oshiri) will begin turn Japan into the first world nation it's designed to be.
Then they can begin to focus on the housing crisis - 1 in 5 houses is abandoned.
