Posted in: New York attorney general seeks to dissolve NRA See in context

The NRA isn't an organization that guarantees second amendment rights. Whether the organization remains or disappears, Americans will always have their second amendment rights.

If there is criminality in the organization, it should be punished according to the law.

@Wolfpack, @bass4funk

Do you think the NRA should be given a pass and not investigated for wrongdoings?

Wasn't there a study in a European country where face shields aren't effective by themselves? A mask or combination of shield and mask were more effective than just a shield.

Also, just a reminder, Trump is entitled to lifetime secret service protection so he'll be a burden on US tax payers long after he's gone.

Well, if Trump loses, he can always run again in 2024.

Isn't that what one would expect? The side with more money and manpower will win.

Out of the mentioned companies, Alphabet Inc/Google is probably the one that holds the most sway over the most people. Which search engine do most westerners use? Google. In Japan, Yahoo uses Google's search algorithms so Japanese may be unaware they're using Google.

Facebook is social media, Apple is electronics, and Amazon is e-commerce. There is still competition for these businesses. But I'd take Google over Bing any day...

But these Koreans who disliked the US envoy's mustache must really dislike K-pop idols from Japan too. They surely must see it as an invasion of their culture or something. eyeroll

Posted in: U.S. envoy to Seoul shaves off controversial mustache See in context

On the flip side to some comments about Koreans hating Japanese, when I visited Korea with friends 9 years ago, we went to a restaurant and since we couldn't speak Korean and the server couldn't speak English, we were able to communicate in Japanese because the server studied it.

So... not all Koreans?

I usually have some sympathy for South Korea on political issues, but this is stupid. I agree with posters above that Korean commentators are being racist.

I have a feeling police in some areas will play a different tune when it comes to people of color not wearing masks as mandated. But maybe that's just my pessimism.

Blacklabel was talking about performance in an interview in response to Simon Foston, not presidential performance. It's pretty clear from the post progression.

lets compare Trumps performance to Bidens, then we will have a full picture.

I agree. I don't think Biden will do much better, but he's all the Democrats have.

I assume he was wearing the previous underwear he stole while attempting to steal more. It'd be strange for him to put them on then and there, but the whole thing is strange to begin with.

Posted in: Trump to resume coronavirus briefings; backs mask wearing See in context

@Blacklabel

I'll just pull this out of the Business Insider article for you.

"And also, it soon became clear that we had enough protective equipment and that cloth masks and homemade masks were as good as masks that you would buy from surgical supply stores," Fauci added. "So in the context of when we were not strongly recommending it, it was the correct thing."

https://www.businessinsider.com/fauci-doesnt-regret-advising-against-masks-early-in-pandemic-2020-7

You keep quoting the following as if he just said it yesterday instead of on March 8 at the start of the pandemic when the above is taken from the Business Insider article from July 16. And the CDC changed their recommendation for masks in April.

*While masks may block some droplets, Fauci said, they do not provide the level of protection people think they do. Wearing a mask may also have unintended consequences: People who wear masks tend to touch their face more often to adjust them, which can spread germs from their hands.*

I will assume not answering my question about wearing a mask yourself means you don't wear a mask.

During all the planning, not a single person wondered what would happen if there was a resurgence in infections in some location, be it in a city or elsewhere, and how to handle it?

Posted in: Trump to resume coronavirus briefings; backs mask wearing See in context

@Blacklabel

I don't think you actually read the Business Insider article you linked in a previous post...or just chose to ignore what was written?

The context for the Dr. Fauci statement you quoted was when it was feared there was a severe lack of PPE for medical workers early on.

But you will be wearing a mask because the president said they're good, right?
