Posted in: Harris, Pence clash over Trump's coronavirus record at VP debate See in context

What facts? Being on the defensive doesn't seem like it.

Here's a couple. The fact that they knew how bad the virus was and lied about it. The fact that they don't have a plan even now.

Ms. Harris said she believed Biden’s accuser of his sexual abuse. So did she suddenly change her mind or did she decide that sexual abuse isn’t a problem for her.

If you want to get into this sort of thing, we could go on for hours about the things Pence has said that contradict dear leader. And btw, she said she believed them about inappropriate touching, not sexual abuse. These are not exactly the same thing and definitely not in the same league as pu$$y grabbin'

Posted in: Trump stirs controversy over COVID-19 death toll, halting aid package talks until after election See in context

They have basically given up and decided herd immunity is the way out. Tragic because it means many more deaths are yet to come. Question for those still supporting this guy; How did the richest country on earth, a country that has had a pandemic response plan since 2005, screw this up so badly?

The problem is if they do they take the leave, they will be overloaded with work as they return and possibly get bonus cut.

I've had a staff person on leave for months. Impossible to leave the post unoccupied while this person was away. I suspect this is true of most businesses.

Posted in: Trump encourages supporters to try to vote twice, sparking uproar See in context

 strongly encourage you to test the system just like your president want you to do.

I thought the same thing at first, go ahead try it and see what happens. But imagine if thousands of people did this, it could throw the election off the rails - which is exactly what Trump wants. Remember him saying it could take 'months' or 'years' to know election the results.

Posted in: Trump encourages supporters to try to vote twice, sparking uproar See in context

Nope! You must have missed this:

You must have missed the quote: "So let them send it in, and let them go vote"

That is encouraging people to vote twice, doesn't matter if the rational is that they are 'testing' the system to ensure the initial sent-in vote was counted. Do you really believe this is something that people should do?

Love that this McEnany is basically an interpreter for his nonsensical rhetoric.

Posted in: Japan's re-entry ban to contain virus unfair, Western business lobbies say See in context

Have to admit, I'm surprised that some people seem OK with this situation.

Considering that the the spread is through community transmission and contact tracing should be possible at this point, not allowing people who call Japan home to return while at the same time allowing passport holders to come and go as they please is absolutely ridiculous.

Not to mention this looks so bad to anyone thinking about setting up shop in Japan.

I would be writing to my embassy if I still lived in Japan.

Posted in: Int'l school teachers in Japan exempted from entry ban See in context

Yes, you pay taxes etc but by having a different passport you are still a guest, remember permanent residency means you are permanently allowed to live here, it doesnt mean you are guaranteed the right to all benefits given to japanese nationals.

I wonder if other countries did to Japanese nationals what Japan is doing, how fast things would change.

This policy hurts Japan.

I think it will be timely for the residents stuck abroad to sue the Japanese government in a class-action lawsuit when they eventually return and claim for compensation for their financial and other losses.

Surprising that with 80+ comments you were the first to mention a lawsuit.

If I still lived in Japan I would have been be consulting lawyers a while ago.

Posted in: Trump deploys federal agents to more states under 'law-and-order' push See in context

As I said, these leaders in these States could easily stop this themselves without Trump intervening if they crushed this anarchy mob rule themselves instead of allowing it to fester. The “murder rate” in Chicago alone is up 52% it went from 275 in 2019 up to 414 In 2020. “Shootings“ went up 47% it went from 1110 in 2019 up to 1637 in 2020.

I think you are confusing a minority of protestors with anarchic tendencies with increased violence caused by the current pandemic and it's effects. Also, your stats are not right, a quick Google search turns up Chicago murder rate was 492 in 2019, granted that is pretty sick, it still disproves your first data point.

Here's an answer for you, if your president had even a shred of leadership skills, compassion, and humility, the USA would not be in nearly such bad shape today.

There is documented evidence of the Japanese government's gross negligence handing this from the start and I predict it is far from over. People were infected because they were forced to stay in a completely mismanaged quarantine situation. I suspect a class action lawsuit is coming soon.

I seem to recall Japan banning parents from physically punishing children in early 2019. I suspect we are seeing the effects of this.

Excellent! Love this guy! Another great move!

It would seem, like Trump, some people still don't get how tariffs work or perhaps suffer from memory loss.

How many times was this promised: "I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words." ?

Now Americans are going to pay! LOL! Too funny.

ugh. NRA gets money per gun sold from manufactures and turns around and gives that money to politicians. Not sure which is more disturbing; the system or the people who still think this is about gun rights.

Posted in: 'A good day': Trump claims victory with Mueller report out See in context

You're welcome, but you still need to admit you were wrong and apologize for accusing Trump of crimes of which he has been exonerated by Robert Mueller, and for calling me a partisan hack.

Exonerated? Where was that written?

I thought this part was rather revealing:

 "The conclusion that Congress may apply the obstruction laws to the President's corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law."

Posted in: Gov't OKs plan to legally ban parents from physically punishing children See in context

Here’s a legitimate question for all of the parents in this thread advocating for corporal punishment as a form of discipline...

How do you feel about other people hitting your children?

I mean, if it’s just a measured form of discipline as you claim you should be fine with other parents, teachers, coaches etc swatting, smacking or spanking your kids right? Or are you the only ones who are allowed to hit your kids??

Well, it's obvious is it not? Other parents, teachers, coaches, etc are not responsible for raising my children. And for that matter, neither is the government.

Posted in: Gov't OKs plan to legally ban parents from physically punishing children See in context

And just for the sake of disclosure: I have two kids who I’ve never spanked, because the need hasn’t arrived yet. But I wouldn’t pretend I know what your kids are like, what messes they cause, and I wouldn’t presume to tell anyone how to manage their own family - and I sure as heck wouldn’t want the government telling any of you what to do with your own kids.

I couldn't agree more with your posts. This law is governing gone awry.

For those who downvoted my 3:23 post, I’d be fascinated to know your objections, and if you’d be prepared to live in cultures where ideas of equality, rule of law, access to due process, secular or functionally secular government and freedom of speech and belief are not respected.

I wondered about that too. I agree with you.

Posted in: Japan to ban physical punishment of children by parents See in context

This is not about whether corporal punishment is child abuse. It is a fine example of the state overreaching and taking away freedoms after incidents that they themselves are responsible for. Knowing full well that there was abuse going on, the social workers were told by the mother that the girl was not home in early February and what was their response? They probably said, OK, we'll try again next month. That was too late. This makes me so so angry because we pay for these social workers to do one thing - and they did not do it. Theses worker either do not have the training or power to do what they should be doing. Fix that.

And by the way, with this new legislation, expect to see that 130,000 cases exponentially increase. Do you really think social workers will be able to find the truly evil parents when they are bogged down investigating all of these non-issues?

Greatest. President. Ever.

Bit of an exaggeration there. Indeed, NK has not launched a missile test since 2017, but whether that has anything to do with Trump's previous meeting is highly debatable. The fact remains NK has not done anything to denuclearize, regardless of what Trump says, and that is the main purpose, is it not?

Posted in: Antitrust watchdog to question Amazon Japan over new rewards program See in context

Rakuten and Yahoo do eat it by either having the merchants mark up the price

Saying they 'eat it' would imply the points come out of their bottom line. No correct. You are right however, that merchants do consider the cost of points when pricing their products on Rakuten.

The problem here, as therougou pointed out, is that Amazon is changing something significant, rather hastily, without consulting their customers, the merchants who will pay the cost for these points.

Posted in: Japan's 10-day Golden Week holiday stirs concern among investors See in context

The main problem here is that rather than encourage workers to actually take their paid holidays, the Japanese government has decided the solution is adding more national holidays every year.

So as per usual in this country, everyone takes holidays at the same time, which is perfect for the group mentally, but less than ideal for business.

Clearly a setup, a little surprised about it happening in Japan.

An executive at a corporation would not just transfer or receive vast sums of money without consultation and cooperation.

He would have known full well, large transfers like this are scrutinized by auditors, both internal and external.
