Sand storms were not calculated in risk assessment for a vessel this size. No hint was taken from what happened in Hamburg.

A lot of drivel about litter, the latter being an ugly habit, but stuffing one's food trash in a public mailbox is especially nasty.

Goons with guns have taken control and don't shy away from killing their own people, peacefully demonstrating civilians. Unbelievable cowards -the goons of course.

Posted in: Goodyear: Attire supporting police OK, but no political wear See in context

President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged supporters to boycott Goodyear tires, tweeting that the Ohio-based company had announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS.

It's just one more lie added to 20 thousand or so. Donald doing his best for a listing in the Guinness Book of Records.

Posted in: Trump urges Goodyear tire boycott after company bars political attire See in context

Trump is really doing his best to make America great again, but he is beginning with himself and while he is at it, doing what he does best, firing of his trump-tweet gun spewing idiocy a brat who never grew up would be proud of, is losing sight of everything else that is meaningful to the American people. The poor man is really sick, isn't he?

Love Unagi! In Germany, we smoke them, eating cold or hot, just tastes so good.

In next door Holland we do too. Lovely with crispy bread. But I haven't been there for a while.

Posted in: Violators, beware: Police finally put some teeth in cycling laws See in context

Threats of stricter rules and more severe punishments are not going to cut it. Like other posters have observed, enforcement of the laws is the only way and that is and has been since time immemorial totally lacking. Put more uniforms on the street. Only that can lead to some success.

Why does this happen, making war on and killing for no reason of women and babies? Do these perps consider themselves heroes? Seems more they have no shred of humanity and are pure evil.

Posted in: Pence flouts U.S. hospital's mask policy during visit See in context

"Since I don't have the coronavirus, I thought it'd be a good opportunity for me to be here, to be able to speak to these researchers, these incredible health care personnel, and look them in the eye and say thank you," he said

A clear example of his impaired intelligence. And Pence follows in the footsteps of his great leader.

And it's Americans pitted against Americans, the result keeping this misfit in office.

Posted in: Trump cuts off U.S. payments to WHO during virus pandemic See in context

The WHO failed in its basic duty and must be held accountable,

The man who throws a tantrum when his avalanche of failings are pointed out to him is quick to blame others for his own. He is nothing more than a petulant child that never grew up.

Lil kim been eating well lately

Can't say that about the millions who are starving in his realm. Fat boy's eating disorder is not his only disorder. He has a thing with firing rockets, he wants attention and like someone else lying comes easy - no corona cases? Yeah, right.

So if you're seen to be having fun in one of the few places where this isn't a problem, they take it away from you?

Were you there instead of basing your judgement on a single photo? The problem is the attitude: you can do what you like, ignore all the rules. 'They' take it away from you. Something else might take it away from you.
