It would help if people stopped engaging in partisan politics and blaming the right wing parties for these problems.
Yes, don't blame the people who actively spent the past 20 years doing their best to insist the issue didn't exist, and prevent anything from being done about it.
Because that makes sense.
Why shouldn't we point out how these people are the lesser human beings of society who wouldn't deserve to be urinated upon if they were on fire?

Question of honne and tatemae, no? A border that you can walk across, get detained as a formality and then released into the open is de facto open, even if it is protected on paper.
Weird answer to whether or not that's the new lie that they're telling you in the bubble.
So I'll assume yes, that is the lie, and no, right-wingers don't know to check facts.

Even if it's less damaging than alcohol or tobacco, it's no reason to legalize it.
Yes, it's definitely better to imprison people for the inane reason of carrying a plant that doesn't harm them.
Because somehow imprisoning people for victimless crimes makes more sense than not doing so right?

Over 5 years.
Ok, so you're still a newbie.
Probably time to read up on the history of this thousand year old nation. It's a lot longer than 5 years. Foreigners have been here for decades longer than that.

Are you new to Japan or something? If you aren't, maybe try reading the news. If you are, maybe try reading up on the subject before asking questions that you could answer with a google.

why didn't he stick around and defend himself rather than go to elaborate measures to not stand trial?
I wouldn't trust the Japanese legal system to provide a fair trial on the matter were I in Ghosn's situation. That would be inanity.

McConnell has expressed publicly that he doesn't care about making life better for his constituents or Americans, and that his only goal is to "100% ensure that Biden is only one term".
The Pubs are putting all of their efforts into obstruction, and none into helping the people. They do this because they know that bipartisan efforts lead to positive polling numbers for the party in power, so if they obstruct, they can then point out how nothing got done as a criticism of the leadership.
Talk about losers, they're bringing down their own country in order to further their own power. The exact opposite of what you want in your politicians.

Isn´t weed legal in many places in the US now?
Borders are federal, where it's illegal. State laws don't have any impact on laws at the border.
And since when do you need a passport to get in? Didn´t Biden say the borders are open now?
No. Is this the new lie they're telling you in the bubble these days?

It's always entertaining to me that people think those who speak out about the misogyny in porn are prudes. In fact, a lot of porn actresses speak out; are they prudes?
Rethink that, why don't you.
Re-think what? You're criticizing something I didn't say, then telling me I should re-think that thing that you imagined I said.
I don't think I'm the one that needs to be re-thinking anything.

i used to believe that the value of a currency is up to the trust the world have on it.
That's exactly what it is.
It seems you don't realize that this fact is one of the things leading to said trust (confidence):

Right wingers are always scared 24 hours a day. Their whole movement thrives on making people afraid, and exploiting that fear.

If hydrocholoroquine is actually effective, it's too bad that Trump was so incompetent and lacking in self-realization that he didn't realize that by politicizing it, it would lead to people not using it.

Building websites is dubious? How so? I know plenty of web designers who support themselves and their families with their work.
And the porn business is run by dirtbags.
Yes. These women who are directing porn are the bottom dredges of society: http://www.femaleporndirectors.com/

0.02 ounce???? Is that even enough for a single smoke?
Depends on the strength of the cannabis. A half gram of Canadian cannabis would get any poster on this board high.
You have extremely delicate friends. How much do they need to get drunk?
Gross. Why would you drink alcohol if you can get cannabis? Alcohol kills.

An 8-year-old second-grader in Los Angeles is a typical patient. Born a girl, the child announced at 18 months, "I a boy" and has stuck with that belief.

The charge is corpse abandonment for disposing of it herself. From the sound of it, it was already dead at that point.
In Japan this is a charge they put on suspects to give them 23 days while the suspect is locked up to "gather evidence" on the actual charge they are intending to press. At the end of the 23 day initial detention, they then lay the actual charge on the suspect. The charge you see above is the one they put on pretty much ever murder suspect before they charge them with murder.

What a mess America is. While this particular bounce back is good, the country clearly will never be able to keep any stability beyond 4, or maybe 8 years if by some miracle one of the parties manages to fail in their "100% focus on ensuring the [other party] only gets one term".
And how can the rest of the world negotiate any kind of stable long-term agreements with the US, when they tear up their agreements every four years?
Talk about a failure of a nation. And it was their own people that brought it down. They were always so afraid of other countries, and thought they could use guns to prevent their own people from destroying their own nation, when the real danger wasn't guns or outsiders, it was green, a lack of compassion, and morons.

Giuliani did clean up New York, though it came at the expense of thousands, if not millions, of minorities being made to feel like lesser people whether they were affiliated with criminal elements or not. Nevertheless, he did make it a safer place.
If he had stopped there, he'd leave behind a decent legacy. He should have taken his money and rode his reputation off into the sunset.
Instead he's become this.

Why can't the Japanese government approve the Russian and Chinese vaccines along with Moderna and give us a choice of which to take?
You'd have to trust the information coming out of Russia and China to trust their vaccines.
I certainly wouldn't. They've done this to themselves by spreading disinformation campaigns and propaganda. Now we can't believe them. Too bad for them, except that it's not too bad.

And the GOP rolls out their sole black legislator to declare that "America is not a racist nation" in direct contravention to what we can all see with our own eyes.
The GOP has lost the ability to debate on any political platform, so they're left creating moral outrage with which they can drive anger and fear in the people, to gain votes.
"They're coming for your [fill in something scary]!!!"

1% of population vaccinated and they want vacpassport. This is the typical bureaucrat and pol disconnect that runs this place. What a comedy of errors. Please keep it up and keep us laughing.
So what percentage of people should be vaccinated before start making plans on how things will operate as people become vaccinated? 20%? 70%? 99%?
