Posted in: Comparison between Capitol siege, BLM protests denounced See in context

Why weren't tear gas and rubber bullets deployed in the capitol when it was being stormed? Often times peaceful protests escalated because police used force.

Trump "has held over 600 rallies in the last four years. None of them included assaulting police, destroying businesses or burning down cities,” Greene said.

Blue Lives Matter...until they don't, apparently.

Why didn't the capitol police use more force against the people storming the building? Isn't police use of force what started BLM?

Less than a day spent storming the capitol resulted in 5 deaths.

Weeks of protest and "rioting" over the summer resulted in how many deaths?

So Xi is trying to hold Starbucks at gunpoint. Help US-China relations or face boycott in China.

Japantoday's ToS allows moderators to remove or edit posts by users and/or ban users if they violate the ToS. Are you saying they shouldn't be allowed to do this? How is this different from Twitter, Facebook, etc.?

I take it you’re attempting to refer to Kyle Rittenhouse from Illinois (not Indiana) who was confronted, chased and then attacked by 3 rioters, who he shot, clearly seen on cell phone camera footage taken by onlookers ?

Would you happen to know why he was there with a loaded weapon when he could have chosen to stay home?

The majority of cases in my prefecture are people above 50, which should be the at-risk group, but the majority of them recover. It seems like most of the deaths are people with pre-existing conditions.

Elderly man with pre-existing condition died in Tokyo because he wasn't hospitalized.

That would be the number of tested positives.

If you tested the entire population of Tokyo in 1 day that number (the denominator in the equation) would increase drastically, and would thus bring the ratio of severe cases way way below 1%.

Sorry for the big science words about difficult grade 4 level math, I realize that some people just want the fear porn.

That's true, but then we'd also know just how many people actually are infected or have antibodies as well.

Posted in: Gov't to ask experts whether to declare state of emergency again See in context

Out of about 10 million people that's 1 per 100,000, or 99.999% without severe symptoms.

Shouldn't the maths be done in relation to active infections? Currently active cases is 10,301 which would make it just shy of 1%.

It IS sustainable, and will all sell and provide food for the public. It is one of EVERY responsible governments roles to supply food for their citizens, and set prices are which are fair, which is what the Japanese govt is doing. Good for them.

You can have my share of the government supplied whale meat then. I would go vegan before willingly eating whale meat.

In these difficult economic times, the Japanese govt should be applauded for catching whales to provide food for their citizens. Other governments should be also providing for their people.

Can't wait to stand in line to trade in a whale meat coupon for my government sponsored weekly whale meat ration.

Why do Democrats feel the need to give peanuts to AMERICAN people and give $700 Billion to other countries?

Why does the government think it's necessary to spend $900+ billion on the military?

So Democrats are ok with Americans getting $600? Boy, their voters got hoodwinked

I don't know what you're trying to get at. $600 is the amount Republicans initially agreed to and any more they'd have shot down the legislation, which is evident since they don't want to give everyone $2000.

If 383 isn't enough to feed a bunch of people, why still do it? I've heard whale meat isn't very palatable.

The House is controlled by the Democrats, Pelosi is the Speaker of House.

If the Democrats wanted this bill to pass, Pelosi could have made it happen.

It's as if you think the Senate wouldn't make changes after leaving the House.

I think what set many Americans off was the $500 million in foreign aid to Israel.

Why would this set Americans off?

Contact tracing here is a joke. Local school has an infected student, they close and sterilize the school but don't even test the students from the classroom and teachers who frequent the classroom even though everyone's in a confined space without 6 feet of individual spacing for extended periods of time. To be honest, I'm surprised they even tested the student to begin with since they refused to test for worse cases.
