You were saying?

"What has Trump done to help? Other than front, protect, and lie for himself and the GOP. Even putting lives in states at risk by refusing all communication with professionals. If Trump has done such a great job surely pointing out his "great work" won't be difficult."

“CDC & my administration are doing a GREAT job of handling Coronavirus” and “I think that’s a problem that’s going to go away. They have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine.”

How's that vaccine coming Blacklabel? Guess there was no need as it was under-control 90 days ago...

Luckily he didn't close or fire the people in the USA that were responsible for pandemics...oh wait that's right, he did...

"oh and by the way NY City is a small place with 1/4th the population of Taiwan. In a modern country with excellent healthcare."

But the didn't do anything until it was too late...unlike Taiwan...a nation with a good, strong centralized government built for the betterment of its citizens...

Sorry Blackwell but as the WHO is an international organization, we all can voice our displeasure.

Of course the USA can renege on its international obligations...wouldn't be the first time...and you do have so, so many sick, jobless and poor.

"the countries that are in good positions now such as Taiwan ignored the WHO propaganda"

Taiwan is in good shape because they were hyper vigilant from the start and are a tiny (4x SMALL than Florida) with only 25M people. It's a very modern country with excellent healthcare.

"WHO propaganda"...please...

Nobody claims that laws prevent something 100%. Laws are meant to curb behavior and they are proven to work very well.

"allowed her to be detained until Nov 26"

Becasue that is not the norm, they requested an extension. It was ALLOWED by the courts. 100% nothing wrong with that sentence.

@Joe

I agree with you but 60 is a bit young...or maybe have a "stage 1" test during a doctors visit for motor skills and vision and at 70 a "stage 2" test at the licencing department.

Something needs to be done though...

Allowed? Were the laws changed?

You know languages are dynamic and always changing right? Also, "blind" is an absolute where as being visually impaired has a range...it's a much more apt description most of the time.

There are a lot of countries that while not the law, you face threats of harm of you don't wear one such as Afghanistan or Pakistan..many countries in Africa too...

"a genuine choice made of a woman's own free will and religious conviction"

When you are indoctrinated at birth, there really is no free will.

Pathetic. Six years to think about that sounds good...

"...traffic science are far more complex than just big vs small cars."

I think we're actually in total agreement as this is the point I was trying to make that blanket statements such as "Kei's are deathtraps" is just pure hyperbole and easily disproven with facts.

"in Japan most accidents occur within proximity of or not so far away from the drivers homes"

Also true in North America..I believe it's within 2km on average.

Had one there for 2 years with zero problems...never took it on a 'high-speed' highway mind you and would not recommend it. Long times were no problem though...fun little thing.

I believe the Spark is classes as a sub-compact as it's size and engine(1L and up) clearly parks in there. Kei, being 660cc max clearly are NOT the same animal. Between Kei and Sub-Compacts you also have micros too I believe.

Your claim is for another class and not for the real class of Kei cars.

@Samit Basu

Kei-class is Japanese and everyone knows that..you are talking about the next size-up with larger engines and heavier frames NOT what this whole story is about...

Way to move the goalposts...

@browny1

Correct that was my error.

But the point is still the same; even when using your stat, you would think with over 1/3rd of all cars being of the Kei class (apx), the fatalities would be a lot higher than in the USA and their big/safe vehicles. But they are not which is contrary to the OP I was replying to...

What are you babbling about? SK have more fatalities than Japan so....

I'm not sure I get your point as you are agreeing with me. Even with those "death traps" and comparable KMs travels, the USA death rate is over 2x higher....
