This is a very important outcome. It will change the course of BLM/Antifa riots. People will have a feeling of not being intimidated by these mobs anymore. And consequently, police will have to make their presence more strongly. So state governors ( virtually always Democrats in these situations) will have to change their directions.
This is good!

Anytime I see the arrogance of “Imagine” man John Lennon highlighted, I give a nod and sigh of relief. McCartney and especially Ringo, we’re nice guys considering the overbearing popularity they went through. They still are, I believe. George Harrison, an egotist who could be very deceitful. John Lennon, an extraordinary egotist and a nasty guy. Just imagine consulting him with your worries.
Yoko Ono. What can you say? Just sheer destruction to anything in her path.
The Beatles’ importance as a band, though, cannot be over-estimated. Unbelievably great and prolific songwriters.

Just looked at worldometer cases and deaths for Australia. Worse now than when 106 day period started.
Australian gov’t: “Oh, well, sorry for wrecking your lives”

No, the posters like a “breath of fresh air”, meaning athletes sticking to tennis instead of using social justice politics to shine a light on themselves.

I feel so sorry for Vietnam in their Covid situation.
Why don’t more people refer to this tragedy.

So who’s doing that on here? You must be talking about a certain tennis player.
Do not like politics being brought into sports. Making the case for that.

Yeah. Well, I liked Fernandez even better but that’s okay. It’s nice to see both them at the front of the scene. A refreshing change!

”If I need to endure a partial curfew” ( just call it a curfew) “ to save the lives of the elderly.. .I will gladly do so”
Did those elderly people ask you to do so?
Is that their idea … or is it yours?

I think this poor woman’s baby died BECAUSE of the strict red tape protocol generated by Covid fear. And the “not enough beds” song constantly repeated because of overly strict Covid protocol.
20 ( +21 / -1 )
Exactly. No efforts towards more bed capacity. No efforts to recruitment and training of staff.
And no effort to treatment drugs so people can home medicate after consultation with a doctor!

It’s an okay approach if New Zealanders only want to be with New Zealanders.

I thought this would make it easy, but the comments seem to indicate it isn’t.
I bought an LG phone from AU two years ago. I thought they unlocked it but when I took it to Thailand, they told me in Thailand, “No, it’s still locked”.
Don’t want that to happen again. Any tips? Thanks much.

Treatment drugs so a sick person can stay home with loved ones.
No treatment drugs - hospitalized and maybe never see your loved ones again.
I’ve always said - treatment drugs!

I’m happy because only rains can break the awful heat of Kansai in summer.
Sometimes a rain breaks the heat around Obon, or just after. But I’ve never seen such an extended case as like this time.
Anyway, hope there are no disasters - and enjoy the relatively cool break. Because it’ll get hot again.

Anyway, medal-biting, a disgusting ritual generated by the media. This man foolishly went along with it. And so rude to Goto, the medalist. End medal biting vapid stupidness!

”Not enough hospital beds” ( for a year and a half)
Is this not sounding like a comedy show?

Actually - in a quite recent article in the Yomiuri - it was acknowledged in a quite positive report on a drug used on Trump way back when he was hospitalized ( and quickly recovered) from Covid. This recent acknowledgement was hidden away in a small article, fourth paragraph because - heavens - no mainstream media would ever want to be caught saying Trump was right about something, even if lives could be saved.
And, please. Spare me that lie that Trump suggested some sink cleanser or whatever. I’m talking about the drug administered to him in the hospital, to which he talked positively - and for which he was shut down.

It’s interesting that there’s always been this reluctance to try treatment drugs - even ones that could be self-administered at home. Considering, I mean, that there was no reluctance to “try” vaccines.
-2 ( +8 / -10 )
I hope this is “On topic”. (It’s the only update news this morning on the virus)
Is it possible that vaccines have pushed the virus to producing the variants? The variants have seemed to have been coming into being with the timing of vaccines being in high numbers.
What do people here think?
By the way, I ask this as a person who is already fully vaccinated.

I do concede this is not a fact. A person could be visiting paid for services with a vengeful motive etc. My only point was that the sexual deprivation motive could be diminished.
It’s terrible about the case you mention.
0 ( +0 / -0 )
Yes. The simple fact is that if such men had had a sexual outlet with a woman - paid or otherwise - they would not have reached the boiling point of committing such an act. That’s just the fact.
So, one has to ask oneself where is one’s concern - compassion for the victims or scornful hatred of the assailant.

I wonder why people on here can have such sympathy for people who have physical sicknesses but only rage and hate for those who are mentally sick. If people are sick, they should be helped, no matter whether physical or mental.

Thailand should be peaking soon. Then gradually go back down, as what happened in India. They all go down eventually and settle into the grey zone: another country with ongoing virus that has to live with it. Every country is going to be the same - that is, just accepting that it’ll be there, but that they have to get back to life as normal. More and more countries will do so. Just as many of us knew they eventually would.
-6 ( +0 / -6 )
Yeah, I’ve seen how your country fights so hard - like a policewoman giving a violation ticket to a couple removing their masks as they exit - as they EXIT - a store. Police roughing up people there all the time over Covid, supposed mask violations.
How many more lockdowns when a few cases pop up? 15? 20?.
Your attempt to describe Australia as mateship is strange. Mateship is what it once was. They were taken over by feminism long ago.
