Posted in: U.S. Supreme Court to hear Texas abortion law case on Nov 1 See in context

There are two main reasons:

The GOPs far-right support of controlling women's body stem from the Christian church's beliefs (many religions) that having babies mean having more and more followers which means more potential donations.

The other source is the racist beliefs on the far-right (any far-right group regardless of country) that there is a race war (ironically, in the West their side started...the global racism, colonization, and genocide).

All the reasons lead back to strength in numbers.

Another sign that elections are right around the corner. One is the magical unexplainable infection numbers. Two is it will be illegal to criticize people on the Internet. Three the nightlife rules are being lifted.

@Farmboy

All these loud criticisms aside, I don’t hear him offering any evidence that this guy didn’t do it. That kind of info would be more helpful if he wants to speak on his behalf for a trial in Japan. All Haggerty is doing is to ensure Kelly gets a smaller, dirtier cell.

That is not his job!

Everyone is still waiting for Japan to argue that they actually broke the law. The only person/group stalling is Japan.

NIIIICE!!!! It is about time someone stood up for both executives with some real clout!!!!

Fact, prosecutors and judges have offices in the same building. Can anyone say "conflict of interest," "collusions," or a "Cabal"?

Looks like Kono should have been the LDP candidate! It is business or corrupt business as usual with Kishida. More poor policies that only the LDP and its friends like NIssan, Dentsu, and TEPCO while destroying what is left of the Japanese equivalent of the middle class

The markets are proof of that!

> American as a nation have been trained to love authority - the police, the FBI, the CIA, the military. Half the programs on TV are aimed at maintaining that mindset. Not to mention a good number of Hollywood films.

All those global movies making making Asians "heartless fiends", Indigenous people "savages", Blacks "animals", and whites (the saviors of every story) from the beginning of the 1900s until now did not help much!

It is where most Asians get there stereotypes of other POC as dangerous. Japan and its police are no different.

@Blacklabel

Odd that this is Chicago and California in the two featured stories. Crime ridden blue city/state.

1 Red states have a lot less people with poorer economies, so the rates are high, but the numbers are low.

2 Red states are more likely to cover up crimes against people of color.

Over Half of Police Killings Aren't Reported, Blacks Most Likely Victims

https://www.usnews.com/news/health-news/articles/2021-10-01/over-half-of-police-killings-arent-reported-blacks-most-likely-victims

Black people have known since slavery that police (slave patrols) were created to assault and mistreat them. And, police have done very little to prove them wrong.

Technology has made it harder for racist police to hide the evidence. Institutional racism is what the US was founded upon which was white people benefiting from the color of their skin. This is why trump and his followers want "the good ole days" (MAGA) back.

Another example of systemic racism. There is a reason why critical race theory is important to learn.

Apparently, white judges are just creating laws on the fly to incarcerate children of color. I wonder if she also getting kickbacks from private prisons like other judges.

That is what happens when you have pre-elections for your political party only on TV and other media forms using the taxpayers money before the actual election. It also does not hurt to manipulate covid infections numbers right before the election by preventing the true number of infections from being counted on the official records.

@Bokuda

Sorry to kill the hype:

PCR Tested on 10/15: 3,882

If that is the total for 3-days like they have been reporting after the Olympics then it is actually about 1000+ plus a day.

Lowering the number of tests mean lower infections recorded.

@Harry_Gatto

It's also very easy to make all kinds of accusations and assumptions but not provide any evidence whatsoever to back them up.

That goes both ways and applies to everyone on this post. However, my statement and some others are just more making more valid and sound claims compared to others!

Posted in: Vaccines, masks? Japan puzzling over sudden virus success See in context

If other countries want to be like Japan then let the LDP run the election and the pandemic.

Your country will have fewer infections counted by making most serious cases stay home, not allowing for mild and asymptomatic people to be tested, and not performing autopsies on deceased individuals, thus, lowering the number of people who can actually be counted on the official numbers.

It is easier to manipulate official numbers with no foreign press and IOC to force them counting all infections.

There are a lot of graphic death scenes where women and children are being violently murdered and eaten. I would think that an age-restriction and violence warning are presented before the show starts.

Posted in: Microsoft shutting down LinkedIn app in China amid scrutiny See in context

China must be ready to create its own version, so they use the government to shutdown its competition down. They probably threatened to remove Windows and Microsoft Office from all companies and businesses in the country. The Chinese government only wants its government to spy on everyone and collect their personal data.

Anytime China claims that a foreign country or entity is acting in a certain way for nefarious reasons, it is because they are doing it too or would do it if given the opportunity.

Like trump, China like to project their immoral behaviors.

Posted in: Trans Netflix staff plan walkout over Chappelle special See in context

In the special, I believe that Dave was trying to point out some of the hypocrisy coming from the LGBTQ community in particular the transgender community. And, that real dialogue cannot begin until both sides of the conversation take responsibility for their role in the issue. He focused on the racism and bullying that exists in the community which he notes as ironic considering the LGBTQ community claims to be a minority that is constantly being bullied. All of his examples in the show fit into one of those two categories or both.

When Dave was doing skits about black people being crackheads and calling them the N-word, those people were probably not boycotting or taking a stand for African Americans including anyone of any race that identify as transgender.

In this recent special, Dave gives a tribute his transgender comedian friend who committed suicide after being bullied online by the LGBTQ community for defending Dave and explaining his side with one single post on Twitter. Dave was the only person to set up a financial account for his friend's young daughter.

Basically, he said empathy is a two way street.

Posted in: Record 196,000 students absent from school in Japan in FY2020 See in context

Bullying would seem to be reduced if students are not meeting face to face, but online bullying would probably increase. However, kids are back in school and not much has changed for the economy and other aspects of life, and the pandemic probably exacerbated any issues that may have already existed.

For some kids, school is the only safe and happy place in their life. So, some kids dealing with family problems or any problems at home might take out that frustration on themselves and their classmates.

Counseling or psychological support in schools are almost non-existent.

Posted in: COVID-19 cases plummeting in Japan; doctors puzzled why See in context

Someone is manipulating the numbers by finding ways to avoid not recording all the infections on official records.

Private clinics that are easily accessible but expensive are not counted. Government counted infection centers make it hard to get a test. You have to be really be sick then they won't accept patients because of not enough beds and make people stay home for a quarantine periods. Those home-based infections are not counted because they were never technically admitted into the hospital. Once again, not counted on the official records.

You are welcome!

There are supposedly 1 trillion dollars of mineral deposits, but companies may be reluctant to risk staff and capital investment in the area

China and Russia already have their eyes set on stealing their mineral deposits by supporting corrupt leaders! China is already pushing construction projects on them with unfavorable loan conditions to see if something will work. However, to my knowledge, Islam does not allow for interest to be placed on a debt.

Posted in: Under-pressure Taliban to meet EU, U.S. in diplomatic push See in context

The Taliban needs to pay that ransom money to Isis-K, while the rest of the country returns to the Stone Age. This is one reason why the Taliban's extremist skewed view of Islam does not work. At best, Afghanistan under the Taliban government and its Taliban offshoots will be another North Korea; at worse, it will return to the Afghanistan of the 80's and 90's.

The current recognized Taliban leaders are learning that it is always easier to break things than it is to fix them.

Was the relationship physical? If so, did it also involve the wife?

Older man grooming a teen on the internet, a jealous wife blaming her relationship problems on a teenager, and a husband lying to his wife to get out trouble.

To solve their relationship and personal issues, they decide to blame a teenager instead of taking personal responsibility.

These idiots need the death penalty.

Don Quixote is popular with bored couples for inexpensive late night "window shopping." It is equivalent to the popularity of Wal-Mart in the US.

On any given day and especially late night, you can see all sorts of strange people walking around the store. With layout similar to Costco with no signs posted, people have no choice but to wonder around to see what is there. Hoping to motivate impulse buying.
