Posted in: Suga to decide state of emergency extension for Tokyo region on Friday See in context

Telling the truth SLOWLY. First there was the "the govt is wary...." and now this. Face it; the govt decided a week ago to extend the unnecessary SOE until whenever. What a crock!

Yes, sounds very much like East Germany.

I agree with much of what Slickdrifter said( mostly the latter 2/3s), except for "perfectly innocent. A puff here, a snort there, a pill here or there. At a party....".

No, not "perfectly innocent" to start willingly taking ILLEGAL drugs, not as a teen nor at any age.

But absolutely it's ONE DAY AT A TIME.

"... solar power generation that this winter has been snowed out." The news also reported that the powerful winds (caused by human beings?) had damaged/destroyed some solar panel arrays.

No mention of the status of the wind power facilities. Those are also vulnerable or susceptible to damage from high power winds.

This only underscores the reality that STABLE power sources(atomic/fossil fuels) are those we must rely, especially in adverse conditions. FWIW, all of the battery-powered vehicles must be charged(frequently) from the electric power grid. Reality.

That said, IF solar power generation were sufficient to continuously /reliably charge & power a vehicle and home, THEN I might consider it feasible, assuming it would also NOT be cost prohibitive.

Perhaps the NZ Gov should have canceled the terrorist's citizenship first?

Where was the woman born, and her parents' nationality? If she was born legitimately in NZ, then she belongs to NZ.

Posted in: Autoworkers face uncertain future in an era of electric cars See in context

Here's the thing, "Eco" -natsis seek to shove their preferences down everyone's throats regardless of whether or not the ideas are actually viable. For me, an EV would absolutely NOT DO. I could use one as a SECOND car, for short trips to the supermarket or mall, but I often travel long distances with a lot of cargo, and up into the mountains. I rented a Leaf once, just to give it a fair try. What a nightmare! A one-way trip(first leg) that should have taken ~3hours took over 6 hours because of having to recharge TWICE on the way! If you use the heater or AC while driving, the range is HALF of the rated/claimed range! Ridiculous!

Mr Market, however, reveals that the CONSUMERS(buyers) do not want only electric vehicles. So, GM may go the way of the Edsel by such a decision. Consumers will just buy a product from a different company.

The slippery slope to a totalitarian regime. To those cheering this, be forewarned: it's your rights to your own body and life that you just lost. Next, it won't be an influenza-like illness (ILI), but just any demand by the government "for the good of the public". You really do not comprehend how awful this power truly is.

It's unconstitutional to try a private citizen. That would be a Bill of Attainder. Just a continuation of the 5-year witchhunt. Denial of Due Process, violation of the Right to Free Speech... Even according to Turley and Dershowitz.

My senior MIL often goes into the clearly marked MEN'S restroom. Her excuse is always that she didn't see the sign.... because she didn't bother to look! The Mrs has chided her numerous times but the response is always just to laugh it off and say "mendokusai!"

Well it looks like some folks, who belong to "just an idea" according to Ole Joe, were busy smashing the windows out of the Dem HQ in Portland. For some reason, Antifa folks are not happy with Biden either.

If the democrats wanted unity, they could have started that 4 years ago rather than sowing division throughout the last 4 years.

Re: sakurasuki's comment about the J-gov revoking foreigners' resident status for noncompliance, I think the meaning of the statement was misconstrued. The article in Kyodo news is referring to foreigners returning to Japan from abroad AT THIS TIME.

"For Japanese and resident foreigners who are allowed to enter, Yasutoshi Nishimura, minister in charge of the country's coronavirus response, said it will require them to sign a pledge upon arrival to stay in quarantine for 14 days, and violating it would result in penalties, such as disclosing the names of violators.

In addition, foreign residents who breach the 14-day quarantine rule will have their resident status revoked and be subject to deportation, Nishimura said at a separate press conference."
