Posted in: High court says Twitter need not delete tweets on man's arrest history See in context

Ozburger:

Criminal convictions are part of the public record, but social media and Google brings it to the forefront. I do believe people should be given a second chance...everybody, including the caveats you said no to. If they pose an ongoing threat, then they should be behind bars still or in a mental institute. Else, if society sees them as only [insert word here], refuses to give them a job and reintegrate back into society, then that society is going to get [insert word here] again and again.

Why isn't twitter being banned too? Last I checked, that was trumps playground.

As far as changing any international organizations, obviously the UN Permanent Security Council should be the first to reflect todays world of 2020....and not 1945

I would rather just get rid of the security council. Why should one out of give nations (P5) be able to veto the world's decisions in the general assembly? No real way to override a veto either.

The message was conveyed by a high-level Japanese government official immediately after Trump on May 30

This just came out in news today, do immediate means 28 days later?

Maria:

Perhaps, perhaps to use your logic: if the children had always been confined in a room then they wouldn't know or care.

Posted in: World's ultra-wealthy go for gold amid stimulus bonanza See in context

Xeno man:

Actual real estate ownership (as opposed to REITs or other marketing strategies) are relatively safe, but could be lost due to insurrection, govt expropriation, and property taxes which could not be paid if investors worst fears came into fruition (economic collapse).

If every family owned a hectare of land, people could just grow their own food and barter with neighbours (rice for lettuce, carrots for milk, etc).

Posted in: World's ultra-wealthy go for gold amid stimulus bonanza See in context

2 things:

1) the customers aren't receiving the gold, just an electronic receipt of ownership. If banking system hacked, then the electronic receipts go bye-bye - ie, the customer holds no physical gold. Make sure you buy physical bullion that gets delivered, but copper bullion is more easily used since bread would not cost golds (then again, see point 2).

2) gold is not something that merchants readily accept as payment. Good luck getting that converted should their worst fears come to fruition. Cant eat gold or really actually use, except for expensive wiring or dental fillings.

The man should sue the HQ of convenience stores for lifetime of wages he would have gotten had he not lost his job. Then sue job for wrongful termination.

Corona doesn't care if your cause is just - it just sees a group of people huddled together. It doesn't distinguish between a veterans parade, a streakers convention, or a BLM protest. Corona is colour blind. Govt actions before and after, however, can affect (healthcare, etc)

Posted in: Kyoto woman arrested for stealing cat from pet shop; offers strange justification to police See in context

Why are pet shops even allowed and breeders? Animals should be given out for free to get them off the streets. And if overpopulated, here's an idea - stop breeding them. I can't say spay or neuter if overpopulated because my cat is giving me a dirty look that says "humans breed like crazy and are overpopulated too...humans first."

I appreciate your response, but the diet (legislative) can write, amend, or repeal laws, they cannot amend the constitution without the 2/3 diet and majority of citizens in referendum. This includes re-interpretation, which is the purview of the courts.

Can the diet also reinterpret that freedom of religion means no Muslims, etc? Sorry, this jitters my legal bone.

Posted in: China charges two detained Canadians with alleged espionage See in context

Couldve just used those as example, but in that case:

Meng Wazhou would be charged by US and chinese embassy (in canada?) informed. Chinese embassy official would escort to airport back to China and held until trial (or pretrial release). American co-prosecutor could come to Chinese court.

The two Canadians in china would be charged by China and canadian embassy informed. Canadian embassy official would escort to airport back to canada and held until trial (or pretrial release). Chinese co-prosecutor could come to Canadian court.

What if modern society got this wrong? Perhaps everyone should be prosecuted in their home country. We can have treaties like this (bilateral and multilateral treaty orgs), and if no treaty, govt does not condone trip and hence traveller is on their own.

For example, if Bob from Zalaei is accused of killing someone when visiting Erenao, he would be charged by Erenao and Zalaei embassy informed. Bob would then be kicked out of country, escorted by Zalaei embassy official to then be held until trial in Zalaei. An Erenao co-prosecutor and observers could even be appointed for that trial.

The cardboard cut outs of each audience member would make more sense if cameras were attached at their respective "eye" levels and a private YouTube channel for the respective customer to watch on their TV at home from where they were sitting. Oh, and stadium-paid delivery drivers asking if the home-bound customer wants a drink or snack.

May the protesters should have to go on a registry and tell their neighbours what they've done. Must protect the neighbourhood. We already do this for other crimes. Oh, and the registry should be for a lifetime.
