@Ping An

Can you agree that the first days/weeks saw big peaceful protests of up to 2 miilions people from all generations and social groups?

Then why the mess started? Because these peaceful protests were much more dangerous to Beijing vis-a-vis the mainland interior policy. The rest just followed: protest interdiction and police provocations were the rigger for more radical protest actions. And the NSL came to seal the lid.

Stock market has been long disconnected with real economy. With COVID19 it is all about expecting relief money will be put on the casino scene. Obscene!

Posted in: U.S. Congress approves $892 billion COVID-19 relief package See in context

USA never give free money to foreign countries. Either they buy influence and/or this is indirect subsidies to USA armements companies.

And comparing the money received by one individual USA citizen vs. what is given to a country is just a ridiculous comparison.

If you like zeros, the USA relief package is 892,000,000,000 USD

Posted in: Australia says China ban on its coal exports would be clear WTO breach See in context

Big power countries (especially unending USA flip-flopping) don't care WTO, but they use it when they need it.

And honestly speaking I do not understand how China can have a say at the WTO. Nobody can do business there freely while CCP sponsored companies are let buying busineses, knowhow and high tech everywhere.

Pfizer lied about their clinical trials and the data surrounding it.

Link please, as far as I know the testing hiccup was not with the Pfizer vaccine.

All human beings are from the same race.

Ethnicity is a ridicule concept.

Cultural differences are a fact and must be respected as long as they respect differences.

Being able to accept diversity is the graal to experience a full human life.

There is a very simple explanation why the senate perform well vs. the presidential election for the republicans: There is a big bunch of sane Republicans that want to get rid of Trump without denying their attachment to the GOP. Plain and simple!

Polls are desserving democracy. Your opinion or willing to vote should not be influence by that.

Easy to attack minority.

At home, no junk food, no coke and no car.

I do smoke at the windows.

No need for these moralistic comments.

My family has the flu vaccine every year including since my kids are babies. Never had any issue apart from a minor pain on the injection area in the arm when pressing on it. Just got it 2 weeks ago this year.

According to the doctor you may have a bit higher reaction the first time, but I cannot even remember any of that.

But can you imagine Suga-san with a face mask representing the Japanese flag like Pompeo?

(would fit POTUS probably better actually)

President Trump unfortunately missed his opportunity to condemn the white supremacists being the democrat's creation, the KKK.

Stuck in the past and denying current reality. Hopeless!

Trump is using the old well known tactic of the crystal ball readers: he tells everything and its contrary so that he and his devots can claim he is always right.

All serious scientific articles say it cannot be a man made coronavirus.

I really feel bad for residents in Japan who have not been allowed to enter back into their country of residency so far.

People canlegally have only ONE residency place. How can they have been rejected this way?

Secondly: you don't get the Olympic games with such a low bribe scheme. It is much, much bigger than that.
