As in related links, Japan has had a relatively less draconian approach to managing this and yet the numbers of infections (which is anyway not a massively relevant number) as well as the number of hospitalisations and the mortality rate have all (to date anyway) been relatively low.

Maybe lockdown mania isn't the only way to deal with this?

Or as Biden knows it, "Delawhere?".

Saw another snatch of him trying to answer a question and once again failing.  Poor old dude is past it.

Amazes me that self proclaimed patriots are prepared to let this old geezer near the levers of power.  When they have to put him out to pasture within months of (possibly) winning the election, the voters will never forgive them for this duplicity.

More nonsense over what is and isn't allowed online.

Some breasts are ok but others are not.   Read this twice and still don't get the logic.

Why do you believe Japan is pretending.

When you walk around or whatever do you see tons of sick people?  Are lots of people off from your work sick?  do you have friends or family who have contracted the virus?

As far as I can tell, this has been pretty under control in Japan.

Dorsey really did a great job.  Goes to show that money doesn't signify beyond making you rich.

Designing, building and running the cyber cesspit that is Twitter certainly seems to have taken it out of him.

all the platforms should just allow unrestricted use (they allow porn and plenty of politically charged content and lots of unverified stuff already) and save themselves from the politicians who will otherwise destroy their business model.

You cannot be serious.  You might as well be saying that the E Asian countries did well for racial or genetic reasons.

Last I looked neither Japan nor Singapore are one party dictatorships.

Who knows what is happening in NK?

And anyway the measures taken in Japan have been far from draconian and yet have not caused huge caseloads or mortality.

Sure, all these countries can try what they have already tried and hope for a different result.  Might just work. I guess they think it is (looks?) better than doing nothing.  although some less draconian measures might be better and not lead to riots and all the other issues that appear to be resulting from lockdowns.

Is it a "century old tradition"??  any event not a big fan of going to the cinema.  With a good home system find it far more fun to watch at home.

Posted in: Trump holds Florida rally in front of mostly maskless crowd; says he's immune to virus See in context

Good for him. I thought that all the fear mongers were relying on some kind of immunity as the way out of this. Like a vaccine. Or herd. I see WHO now says lockdowns are not the answer. Guess “the Scientists” can also change their minds once the evidence shows that the massive overreaction to this disease may have been unjustified.

Posted in: Trump won't commit to peaceful transfer of power if he loses See in context

I keep reading these reports and cannot quite reconcile the reporting with what he actually said.  He hasn't said "I won't accept the result" (as Hilary and others have) but rather has said that he will need to see how all of the furore around mail in ballots and the like pans out.

Those who think that he will "cling to power" if the result goes against him are indulging in fantasy.

This one not Trump's fault.  A lockdown like we have seen in so many places obviously harms those with only their labour to sell and with no savings  and benefits those with a lot of capital and flexibility to work remotely.  Note most of those benefitting the most are big Democrat backers......

So right for the current moment of madness.  Time for the NBA to step up and do the same to increase White and Asian representation in basketball.  and the NHL the same for blacks and Asians.

Until we have exact replication of society wide racial mix in all sports and universities and professions and so on the world will never be truly free and equal.
