Policy differences are not tantamount to treason.

I said traitor — a person who betrays a country or principle.

I am confused with numbers above. $15 X 40= $6000 per month. Do American taxes really take 2/3 and leave the worker with only $2000 net?

Good Lord... $15/hr x 40 hours/week = $600/week x 4 weeks = $2,400 per month gross. A 5th grader can figure that out.

Traitors all.

$15/hr is only about $2,000 net per month. Average 1 BR apartment rent in US is $1,164 per month. Try to have a car, insurance, electricity, water, gas and food on what's left. Good luck.

This confirms my belief that the Olympics have become nothing but a corrupt, crass money grab of taxpayer money.

Texas seems to be the center of the Dunning-Kruger Universe.

"Nobody's going to build something that's going to sit idle 99.9% of the time so it can run in an emergency period, unless they're properly compensated," he explained.

They can, they just choose not to. Clean water and reliable power are two things that governments should ensure their residents have. To not do so in the 21st century in ridiculous. It's not like Texas is a war torn area.

So where do people eat lunch? On the greens? Nope, in the clubhouse. Probably with very little effective anti viral measures in place.

Most Japanese golf course restaurants already have 10'-12' spacing between tables.

Pure spin from an obselete so called sport trying to sell itself a saviour.

To each their own.

Posted in: Golf booms as go-to leisure activity during pandemic See in context

Golf is booming the US since the pandemic, after decades of decline. You can be outside and away form everyone. The UK and Europe are still keeping golf courses closed, for some goofy illogical reason... it's safe to go to a crowded supermarket, which is nothing more than a petrie dish of Covid, but you can't walk alone and away from everyone on a golf course. It's insane and has devastated the golf industry in Europe.

I lived in Hayama in the early 1990’s and I remember driving along 125 (?) on a New Year’s day and seeing Fuji-san the first time so clearly because of the low humidity of an ice cold day. It was stunning and I’ll never forge it.

Protection from whom? What's a realistic scenario where Japan would be invaded? What would they do with Japan? What would they gain? There's not a single natural resource.

Does anyone actually think that Japan doesn't have nuclear weapon parts lying in close formation and ready to go in minutes? If so, you're living in a fantasy world.

Japan has enough plutonium to produce a staggering 6,000 nuclear weapons. That's more plutonium than is in the nuclear weapons of China, France, India, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan and the United Kingdom—combined.

Sven AsaiToday  12:25 am JST

That’s very rude and unfair. PM Boris Johnson himself explained that, saying he has of course got combs and tries, but since childhood although his mother and he tries whatever possible his hair just doesn’t get into any style. So it’s not his fault, also no disease, but mor like a small visible hair ‘anomaly’.

Yeah, right. So why does he always run his hand through it to rough it up? He started the slight birds nest look in 2003 hosting a TV show, then took it to extreme in search of a trick to get photographed and noticed as a politician. It's an invention.
