When big govt said you cant see or receive nudy pix. Guess they grandfathered renaissance art with the naked cupids and such. Sometimes people learn from mistakes best by consequences. Sometimes the kid needs to touch the stove to know not to do so again.

If masks are required, then the govt, or company requiring, should provide

Fear is rising, like a tsunami.

Like an earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear...too soon?

Even back in the 80s, $20,000 couldn't buy back their home and property. It was a pittance. Forced return of their property would be difficult too for the third hand owners (the owners that bought it from the ones who bought from the Japanese, whom were forced to sell at a discount rate). For the ones who directly bought from the Japanese-Americans, I'd return their property and compensate the 1940s person who bought it at the same price, pegged to inflation.

If I recall, the supreme court decision that upheld their internment (korematsu) was never overturned. So, the us could still do it, and quite easily as it was an executive order.

What beach are you at?

Also, if adults can disable, children can too. Many kids are better at these devices than adults.

Ixnay in the USA. Several whistleblowers would disagree with your assessment.

Wrong country of origin. Sounds like the after 911 in the US when some wanted to attack muslims but were so ignorant they attacked Sikhs. Firstly, don't attack anyone. Secondly, at least study about those you disagree with.

When asked if he was being told to say he was not forced, the professor looked to his boss behind him and then said "no."

The injured man will likely lose his job because he was in the hospital for so long. I'd like to know if his employer will guarantee him his job in recovery...and hopefully (longshot) pay him during recovery.

Debate and arguments, not so much shouting, should be present at shareholders meetings. These meetings are the parliament. There should be debate rather than the national peoples Congress of yesmen. The board is the executive, and the ceo, coo, etc are the admin...supposed to be anyway.

Posted in: Two fathers in Europe demand action against Japan over parental child abduction See in context

The most effective recourse is to do what they did. When a japanese family visits, take the children. The japanese govt will protest. And the EU would be like, we must listen to our courts. And then they can do a child exchange.

Posted in: Australia to evacuate more than 200 citizens from cruise ship See in context

A cruise ship should not be stuffed like an airplane. It should be for pleasure. How can you stick over 100 people on a ship and still have room for entertainment? Personally, I think planes should have entertainment too, a bar that passengers go to, and less seats.

If it were iran, their justification would likely be that they were fighting terrorists (they have labelled US forces as such in retaliation for US doing so to Iranians forces). Both sides just need to get out and let Iraq choose it's own destiny.

Posted in: Gov't to subsidize mask makers amid supply crunch See in context

Well, instead of subsidizing, the govt could buy the masks, then give for free or offer at well below retail value.

She needs an eye mask. Her eyes are too small. Sailor Moon's takes up a third of her face.

I assume from the name bike that it has only 2 wheels? Be kind of hard to dismount with 2 kids in tow.

They already have that. They come with the picture frames in many stores. Mine had a man, lady, boy, and a golden retriever. I actually left it in as a joke.

Maybe Portman can start the #Notme for all those snubbed or denied recognition or promotion because they were female.

Tom young:

I respectfully disagree. Jeff Bezos of amazon, for example, is not a criminal, despite him also using a loophole in tax law to pay essentially 0 in taxes. By your definition, he is a thief too. I believe the onus is on the govts to eliminate loopholes in such a case. Its not fraud, its exploiting a legal loophole.

I forsee vending machine design go into overdrive. A store with aisles of them - pay as you go. No clerk, just security camera and detector at entry that sends signal to owner or contracted security group ( of 30% of businesses - not a monopoly) for review and then submitting photo from camera and details to police.

He could pull a generic and rename the store 7-10. Cant trademark numbers. How many havent seen Frosting Flakes (generic Frosted Flakes) or Jackett (generic Gillette [razors])?

And yet, novel books from non-elite Hollywood stars have very few buyers. They go unnoticed without millions of dollars in ads or sponsorship.

Ulysses, et al:

The onus should be on the companies that do the booking and assigning points. They did not steal the points, they were given them - they were taking advantage of a loophole that the company left open. We've all had to cancel reservations before, this shouldn't be a crime. Civil matter (lawsuit by the company) at the most. This invites private companies with strong pulls of govt to entice prosecutors to arrest former customers.

This sounds like a civil matter (lawsuit), not a crime. Swearing is also a crime in some areas. Maybe we should enforce that too.
