If the USA implemented the same policies China uses to claim territory, then it could claim a good chunk of the Pacific ocean from continental USA right to Hawaii.
You might want to read up on how the US "provocations" captured Hawaii, Midway, Guam, The Philippines, etc.

The 2nd Amendment states: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
The worst ruling ever by the Supreme Court was to ignore the first half of the sentence and disassociate the right with the militia.
Over a million people have died by gunfire in the US in the last, and almost every, decade.

This joker really needs to read the fine print in the constitution. The government has every right to order businesses to close during a state of emergency. Case closed! Move on!
Show us that fine print before we move on, OK?

With all of the talk and money going into contact tracing, can Lovecrafting or some other extraordinarily bright person please educate us simpletons and idiots with links to the data identifying how many Covid cases were contracted in restaurants open after 8PM and where all of the Tokyo infections came from?

And on the other hand, there will be a slow recovery in national and international traveling after Covid-19. Businesses are adapting and realize that virtual meetings are more efficient and a new era in business communications is under way. The travel industry will have to restructure, as will commercial office space businesses.

is illegal and unconstitutional as it infringes the right to freedom of business
for heavens sake, in any country the frame of your « freedom » is set by the law. If the law says you must close because of a pandemic there is little you can do. These poor fellows are using the arguments of simpletons that believe they are free to do whatever they want and ignore the law: that’s anarchy by the way.
Simpletons? That’s very rude.
Could you tell us which “law” says you must close?
There was an edict, but edicts are not laws.
There has to be a basis in facts and arbitrary edicts are not how democracies flourish.
Can you show everyone here how many cases of Covid are attributed to being transmitted in a restaurant after 8pm?
8pm is an arbitrary time based on nothing and can only be considered a foolish edict. If an edict is issued that you can only wear red color clothing after 6pm when there is a pandemic, would you follow such a foolish edict without question?
Perhaps you will, but I suspect most of us will not.

Posted in: When we lost visitors and donations fell, we realized that our conventional way of supporting our operations no longer work. We needed to adapt to a management style which meets with the times. See in context
Never again will i donate to any of them. When i go out i have 2 envelopes in my pocket, every day. One 5000 yen and one 3000 yen and i give these directly to people i see in need or who ask me( rare but it happened a few times to me) .
Then everyone around stands up and claps.

No money had to be paid to any politicians.
The people to blame are the people who built China as it is now - the executives of companies.
Companies around the world willingly bought from China and deserted their domestic factories and workers so they could make more money.
And societies allow it to happen because people willingly give up the future of their children to buy cheap plastic stuff today.

Just stop buying Chinese products. Period.
Sounds good, but businesses only care about making as much money as fast as possible from reselling cheap plastic crap from China. People only are about their life span.
Give up the knowhow to build things? No problem.
Put workers out of work? No problem.
China didn't take a single job away from anyone. Businesses sacrificed their fellow members of society and the future of their children to sell cheap plastic crap at the highest price with the lowest cost. They'd buy it from the devil if the price was right,.

Technically, it's not radioactive water. It's water contaminated with radioactive particles and elements.
There's getting around it. This was a giant screw up to not have the backup cooling power supply on nearby higher ground and in water tight vaults. I designed transformers, metal clad motor starters and substations for special requirement locations, including retrofitting oil-filled transformers with dry-type, cast coil type for nuclear power plants.
Just putting the plant on that coastline was insanity.
It's criminal negligence, in my opinion. Chernobyl and Fukushima are monuments to the damage that complacency can do.
