I don't believe any Covid numbers coming from the CCP. I do believe Shanghai can be locked down again in an instant at the governments whim.

Vaccines saving lives is very good indeed. People being mandated to take vaccines is very bad.

Posted in: Why monkeypox may soon get a new name See in context

It will always be known as Monkeypox to me, just as the original SARS‑CoV‑2 strain will always be the Wuhan virus.

When China urges a country not to meddle in something, that country should definitely meddle.

Posted in: Bitcoin drops below $20,000 as crypto selloff quickens See in context

Remember when oil crashed a few years ago and basically went to zero? Now look at oil prices. This Bitcoin crash will recover and go to new highs. It’s just a matter of time, likely years away.

Posted in: U.S. abortions rise: 1 in 5 pregnancies terminated in 2020 See in context

Safe, legal and rare was the best policy. Now the right wants to ban all abortion and the left wants abortion even during viability. I can’t support either side.

The movie should not be banned. Parents should decide if their children watch it. Of course, if parents decide against it they will likely be called bigots.

Posted in: UAE bans Disney-Pixar film over same-sex relationship characters See in context

You guys do realize that you're very much in the minority finding anything offensive about these relationships in 2022

There is a huge difference between people finding "these relationships" offensive versus the pushing of increasingly woke content on children. Most adults like myself accept and support that people can live their lives as they please. But when it come to my young children, I am very careful about the content they are allowed to watch.

Posted in: UAE bans Disney-Pixar film over same-sex relationship characters See in context

Disney has the right to make whatever content they want. Counties have the right to ban. But if Disney continues down this woke path, it’s just a matter of time before the average viewer will tune out Disney. I already have.

There are several professional Golf Tours worldwide already (ie Japan Golf Tour). PGA is not a monopoly. Some players simply go where the money is especially if they are no longer in their prime.

Posted in: Timely 'The Janes' documentary looks at secret abortions See in context

Interesting that this progressive documentary gets media attention everywhere, even in Japan, but the new documentary “What is a Women” gets no mention anywhere, even in the US.
