Posted in: China and the U.S. blame each other for escalating tensions over Taiwan. Who do you think is more at fault? See in context

China is the only one threatening to violently invade Taiwan.

Its’s convenient to blame the US, but doesn’t make sense here.

People consume and waste too much anyways. This is probably for the best.

This is what it looks like when you make abortion such an obstacle for these desperate women.

In Japan, the father has to give permission. Bizarre

Talk about exploiting the situation. Since their operations are basically the same, this is just astronomical profits.

However, it’s forcing countries to step up and figure out alternative energy and ultimately oil rich countries will be in for a rude awakening. Can’t drill oil forever.

I read these stories about this daily. Japan should better support options for women like offering the abortion pill and not having unnecessary loops for the women to jump through for abortion: requiring the father to sign, showing mental or financial issue.

Posted in: Musk wants to cut 10% of Tesla jobs; tells employees to return to workplace or quit See in context

People should run their companies how they see fit. With that said, this will only hurt Tesla as he will lose a lot of talent to other companies that offer a more desirable work culture.

China is like the abusive old boyfriend that can’t accept Taiwan wants nothing to do with them.

@master

US has 3031 Covid deaths per million people and Japan has 240. Everyone in Japan wears masks and America had a political meltdown to get people to wear masks and most people there just quit.

Posted in: Musk's China connections add potential risks to Twitter purchase See in context

I think Musk is devastated after the realization that all of his followers are actually just bots.

Posted in: Twitter defends anti-bot efforts, Musk replies with poo emoji See in context

@sven

The only people that are calling Twitter liberal and oppressing freedom of speech are:

a) bots

b) extremists that want to be able spread misinformation

c) conspiracy theorists that have went down a rabbit hole, likely due to mental health.

Which one are you?

@painkiller

China has been literally locking people in their houses with little food, using human oppression as a strategy. I would hardly call anything about what they’re doing admirable.

China’s vaccine has been proven to not be as effective as vaccines from the West, just look at what happened in Hong Kong.

Unless china is planning to isolate themselves from the rest of the world forever, their strategy is short term thinking.

This is the best strategy when the country is vaccinated by an ineffective vaccine.

Google’s translation of Japanese-English is quite poor; DeepL blows google away in accuracy and nuance.

Posted in: 10 dead, suspect, 18, arrested in mass shooting at Buffalo supermarket See in context

This is the outcome of far right radicalization and nationalism that’s been skyrocketing since Trump’s endorsement of these ideas. This guy was brainwashed by Qanon and Fox News, just look at what he was writing about online for proof.

This radicalization is not harmless, there are real life consequences of letting these people breed online. They are no different than any other radicalized terrorist.

I’m pretty sure this whole thing was so Musk could punk republicans to get some attention.

Russia’s military is weak and in shambles. They can’t handle taking on another war. Nobody is scared anymore.

Putin didn’t plan very far ahead on this one. He sure did unite the world against Russia though. This careless miscalculation will set Russia back decades.

Posted in: Musk says he would reverse Twitter's ban of Donald Trump See in context

People only followed him on Twitter because he was president, now the world just doesn’t care, he’s powerless.

If I’m going to follow a retired, uninformed, failed businessman, I would rather at least follow one that makes better jokes.

Spraying people’s houses down is not going to have any positive impact, just ruining some furniture and making people sick from chemicals.

Posted in: Activists urge ad boycott if Musk turns Twitter toxic See in context

Why do liberals hate free speech for all, good or bad?

You’re factually incorrect. Nearly every politician, both republicans and democrats and everything else have Twitter accounts on there.

Stop pedaling the victimizing of republicans narrative, it’s factually incorrect and makes you look out of touch.

Now they will likely work 12 hour days at a 20% salary cut. And probably have to respond to emails on Monday anyway.

This is just an optics stunt.

Posted in: Judge finds Donald Trump in contempt of court in New York legal fight See in context

Mr. Teflon will never be held accountable for one simple reason, He Has $$, and his money TALKS.

According to his taxes, he is broke. Considering how many of his businesses have failed and that he claimed bankruptcy in the past, I have serious doubts to how wealthy he is.

His most successful business has been to squeeze his disciples for all their money, but I think they’re even catching on now.

@bassfunk

It makes perfect sense as it’s based on historical facts. Trump gets his magat base to donate their money to pay his legal fees.

Posted in: Twitter bans ads that deny climate change See in context

Good for Twitter.

I think the world would be a better place without any of these SNS companies, but applaud the brave ones that take some accountability for fighting misinformation.

To claim freedom of speech means allowing people to spread misinformation is lazy and primarily supported by people lost in conspiracy theories.
