Everyone is still wearing masks in every store I go to in the US.

Really? I am at the home center as we speak and about 80 percent of the people are not wearing masks. They are free and happy.

They must talk like this to try and stop people from traveling. From what I see, it’s business as usual.

 If the law says you must close because of a pandemic there is little you can do.

I believe there is no law that states what you said. It's all on a volunteer basis. Technically he could sue and win.

What crime did they commit?

The crime of saving a foreigner that would never get a fair trial in Japan, proving to the world what a farce the Japanese justice system is.

Would take a Japanese prison any day over any other in the world. At least they are safe and dropping the soap is no issue.

How do you know? Have you done prison time in Japan?

Posted in: U.S. to reverse Trump's 'draconian' immigration policies, Biden tells Mexican president See in context

Draconian means: excessively harsh and severe.

The media will say anything for clicks, meanwhile, the caravan is in for a big surprise when they reach the American border and are rejected entry because of Bidens "new draconian border protection policy".

I agree. Everyone will be paid a minimum wage. Or like Marx said, just enough for the worker to be able eat the bare minimum needed to make it physically to work, work, go home and do it all again the next day.

That's how Japanese are living now.

We need vaccine ASAP! 

Where is it?

Hate to burst your bubble but a vaccine is only the beginning and that is a long way down the road. The Government knew this was coming and now that is spreading like a forest fire, they are just waking up. The challenge is waking up is not a plan. My advice is turn on the world news and understand that what happens in the world will be in Japan exactly 2 weeks from the date you researched.

Japan business confidence improves again after virus plunge

Have you walked through central Tokyo lately? Workers do not look so happy and optimistic about the future.

Seems like everybody now eats their lunch at convenience stores and there are a-lot of empty buildings with no tenants. This story is not believable.
