Rickymosaic:

The website would be akin to a forum or public area in mall (in california, for example, state Supreme Court ruled that mall owner could not ban free speech in common area).

Why by kilo or pound? Apples and watermelon are sold together, right? If selling by pound, I can legally just cut the slides I want then.

Singapore's at 11%...trying to get to 30% by 2030, for comparison.

Canada is 6th at 183% (Guess they export excess)

Argentina is #1 at 273% (thought us would be)

Advocating violence is different than saying (name group) is taking our jobs, etc (example, I don't believe such...except for robots). So this guy's manifesto would likely still be taken down.

Free speech and press is regulated in nearly every country. Jim can't shout fire in a crowded theater and crazy bob can't look at kiddie prn. That being said, some companies need to either allow speech and press and regulate (unbiased, as above) or be broken up as they are virtual monopolies.

The uniform is reminiscent of the star trek wrath of Khan (1982 original, not the remake) uniforms, but are white and have buttons. I loved that uniform...Guess which star trek uniform they don't sell?

Toasted heretic:

I do call out us' foreign policy and war, and hypocrisy. I try to be as tactful and respectful as possible as you don't win people over by calling them names and being nasty. I try my best.

Please say why you disagree with the science facts in my comment. Or is it the way I phrase? Thank you.

If using wind, solar, hydroelectric, wave, and/or geothermal, recharging is carbon neutral too.

Posted in: Moon calls for 'peace economy' with N Korea; slams Japan See in context

Kaerimashita:

German reunification was much easier considering the power of east europe (Soviet union) had a forward thinking leader who wanted democracy (he was a democratic socialist - not a social democrat [Bernie says it backwards when he means the other]). North korea has no real overarching power holder (China comes closest, but more as an arbiter). Both of those leaders are not remotely democratic.

If reunification had a snowball's chance in Hades of remotely succeeding, the Kim Dynasty would have to be the head of state (monarch), prime minister would head govt, and the north and south militaries would have to unify (very big issues, especially with US tech and security). Further, to prevent China from intervening, US (and defence equipment) would have to leave korea and the unified Korean military would have to convert to a self defence force.

Just my 2 yen.

Akie:

"North Korea is more than a market for South Korea. It is strategic corridor, linking South Korea to China, and the rest of Asia; it is cultural tie that link Korean people with Chinese people."

Don't know why you got downvoted. That was a factual statement. I don't support moon or his decisions, but facts are facts.

Unfortunately, I know of no electricity alternative to powering air conditioning. Maybe an onboard bike for pedalling power to charge AC?

Pretty sure there was an alt-history book where the US joined the Axis under President Pelley (American Nazi and white supremacist) and Japan joined allies as they had during ww1. Japan dropped biological weapons on LA and New York, firebombed others. US surrendered and biological weapons became legal while chemical and nuclear were banned (winner writes rules). And many Japanese said dropping biological weapons on innoceng american civilians was necessary to bring the war to a swift end. I like some alt-history as it reverses the situation making people look at their own beliefs (someone else's shoes).

So was the US under articles of confederation. EU needs whiskey rebellion to become a real federal parliamentary democracy. And please reduce the size of parliament.

My reform ideas:

54 member unicameral parliament where half is 1 MP per country, half is 27 at large by party. Proportional representation. Give everyone a chance to talk.

7-member cabinet from parliament by coalition.

Euro court is Supreme constitutional court

Inspector General as head of state.
