Funny. Sweden seems to have gotten over the virus without needing a vaccine.
Strangely enough, Sweden is now considering restrictions of their own. They haven’t gotten over anything.

Why anybody would think what he did is a good idea I’ll never know. Maybe the punishment doesn’t fit the crime though. Just out of curiosity... there are words that you can’t say at an airport without some kind of punishment being meted out... does anybody know what the punishments might be? I don’t but maybe not as much as what this guy got?

What you should be looking at is the death rate. And that has been completely flat in Sweden since the end of July. No new deaths, aka the disease is done with in the country. Call it what you want.
I call it 5 new deaths reported in the last 24 hours.

Looks like they’re starting to phase out the lightning connector... finally. I’d hold off from buying any new Apple devices that don’t use USB -C now... unless it’s absolutely needed.

Every single sip of coffee and bite of ice cream you take increases the viral load of everybody sitting on that airplane.
More than not wearing a mask for the remainder of the time? I honestly never knew that.

Ok, I've watched it, and if you are planning on boycotting it then I'll say you are not missing much. It was a bit of a feast for the eyes, but that is all... lacking in almost every other department. A little disappointed in Niki Caro as she is a much better director than this film shows. I feel like there was too much influence on this from outside... trying too hard not to offend. A very disappointing effort.

We’ve have had a 6 month trial of the Democrats radical experiment in the U.S., and it doesn’t work. Maybe LeBron and his celebrity friends will protect you when have no police( or a defunded police) that are too afraid to risk their livelyhoods or pension to put their life on the line for you.
But did you have anything to say about the story?
1: “He didn’t say that. It’s fake news.”
2: “He didn’t mean that. Fake liberal media.”
You could at least start with one of those two before going onto...
3: “But what about”

A historical reality is that the pro-KKK and slavery Democrats have always been racist. As have been their supporters.
And oh my hoe times have changed.

From the article
Leaning into her role as the first Black woman on a major party's presidential ticket,
Now I’m really wondering what the topic actually is.

Great idea!! Let’s prolong it!!

The free-thinkers are letting the leftists that they will not have their way.

@Akula - wasn't there one in Wellington yesterday or the day before? And one in Christchurch in an isolation facility?

Nope! You must have missed this:
Trump: "On Election Day, or Early Voting go to your Polling Place to see whether or not your Mail In Vote has been Tabulated(Counted)," Trump wrote. "If it has you will not be able to Vote& the Mail In System worked properly. If it has not been Counted, VOTE."
"The president is not suggesting anyone do anything unlawful," White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News Channel on Thursday. "What he said very clearly there is make sure your vote is tabulated and if it is not, then vote."
Republicans might not be very good at math... we saw that with the “largest ever inauguration”... but seriously... it’s two.

Ok Gotcha. Thank you so much for taking the time to do a search for me. I really do appreciate
No worries. As titin says above, it really is quite opaque. Also, your original comment does have a lot of validity especially when considering things that have been said by certain politicians in this country about superiority and such things.

@Aly - information I can find suggests the testing is a requirement for Japanese citizens who have traveled from or through any of the countries that had restrictions placed on them. The quarantining I can’t find any info on.
4 ( +5 / -1 )
From what I understand, and please correct me if I'm wrong, is that its a requirement for foreigners but not so for Japanese. The standards may be the same but the enforcement is different. Or is that incorrect?
That I don’t know. I’m just linking the article. Something I’ll try to check out though.

@Aly Rustom - article two days ago said the policy is the same for Japanese citizens.
Re-entry will be permitted for visa holders, including permanent residents and exchange students, on condition that they undergo coronavirus testing and quarantine for 14 days, the same policy that applies to Japanese citizens re-entering the country, NHK reported on Friday.

Biden will make the country kneel for protests
that’s gonna happen either way. The thing is people will do it in support of Biden and in opposition to Trump.

The United States argues that it can trigger the sanctions snapback process because the 2015 Security Council resolution still names it as a nuclear deal participant.

How can Maria’s “men who hate women” comment be so easily misunderstood by so many here who are reading it as “all men”? That’s ridiculous. Some men have ginger hair, some men don’t like cats, some men have blue eyes. Maria’s comment ONLY focuses on men who hate women and act violently towards them. That’s all. “But not all men” type comments or any comment being disrespectful to her aren’t warranted.

But liberals be as outraged if Michelle were white or a man?
Fair question. If it ever happened we might know the answer?
So what are the rules when you engage Michelle?
Same as the rules for anybody you wouldn’t be racist or sexist toward.
5 ( +6 / -1 )
Ok, so you’re saying Michelle should be off limits because she’s black?
That’s not what was said. What was said was “even more viciously...”
Argue and debate that’s fine. Treating differently because of any demographic reason is not fine.
