  1. And a broken clock shows the correct time twice every day... Note I said in my comment about... without cause....
  2. Nice words... Too bad Trump never would have written those himself, even though he may have given them in a speech prepared by others. What he thinks comes out in his Tweets and off the cuff diatribes -- which don't even remotely resemble the comment you've quoted above.
  3. Not getting shot or choked out without cause so often by police?
  4. etc etc etc... https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/05/30/minneapolis-racial-inequality/
  5. It took EIGHT officers to extort one plain nobody Thai woman??? Really, they have to do a bit more work on their manpower utilization...
  6. You've posted that claim before, but never any source to back it up... In lots of countries, the death rate (deaths among confirmed cases) is 5 to 10% or more... In other countries like Thailand, it's under 1%, according to data from Johns Hopkins. As for your age-based claims, here's an example for the state of California, via the Los Angeles Times: https://www.latimes.com/projects/california-coronavirus-cases-tracking-outbreak/
  7. Apparently, "dismissed" from their prior assignments... but not "dismissed" in the sense you or I or others might expect, meaning dismissed from their employment. The latter only happens here in the rarest of instances, no matter how grievious the offense.
  8. Fortunately for you, since presumably you're not black, you don't have to worry quite as much about the police shooting you or choking you out. Too bad you don't live on the other side of the racial street so you could experience first-hand that which you seem to condone.
  9. There are those religious extremists who welcome such things as a final days sign the apocalypse and their savior is coming. There are racial and political extremists on the right who would like to see a race war in America that they hope would end up "purifying" the country. Sad to say, there are "Americans" who think and believe such things.
  10. I think there's a difference between hospital personnel and the general public... At hospitals, they're wearing face shields AND masks, with the face shields protecting against direct exposure from potentially infected people when they're dealing with them close up. For the general public, the risk is going to be greater from general respiratory spread, and the face shield alone does nothing to protect against that. I think that's the point the Thai MoPH person was making.

  12. When police murder defenseless/subdued Americans, I'll be outraged. When police shoot rubber bullets at journalists, bystanders and peaceful protesters, I'll be outraged. When police tear gas peaceful protesters so Trump can hold a photo opp, I'll be outraged. City or suburbs, all of the above are the same for me.
  13. Well, with 100,000+ dead Americans from the coronavirus under his failing watch, he already ought to be a shoo-in! That kind of success, you just can't argue with... MADA - Make Americans Dead Again
  14. Speaking of the worst being yet to come: https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/can-trump-use-military-to-stop-protests-insurrection-act/2020/06/01/c3724380-a46b-11ea-b473-04905b1af82b_story.html
  15. Jing, you're channeling George Will's column that I quoted above:
