I’m glad he won.

Hitting a person’s business and livelihood on unproven assumptions that are not law is unjust.

How many places lost their businesses, due to it.

He asserted his rights, not for monetary reward but principle, and under the law, won.

If they were this diligent at the beginning of this whole mess,

instead of allowing infected people to fly all over the world, things might be different.

Now it's just overkill, making people suffer under tyranny, just because they can.

No debate- just stop.

It's of no use at all to wear a mask.

It prevents nothing but proper breathing.

Posted in: On both sides of U.S. abortion debate, protesters vow to fight See in context

This issue is about wether or not the right or ability to get an abortion is in the Constitution, or not- It's not.

The SC is looking to remove this as a federal issue, and move it to the states.

It is not about abortion becoming illegal, but states determining its status by their peoples votes,

as was intended in the Constitutional Republic of America.

But, wow, the media et al, sure do like to malign, and what's the big deal about compromising the SC, to that end?! /sarc.

Or, may-haps a lot of distraction from "2000 Mules" which goes into theaters, today.

The United States, Japan and the European Union on Thursday endorsed a declaration to promote an open and free internet amid concerns over what they view as "digital authoritarianism" seen in countries such as Russia and China.

Pot, meet kettle.

Because there has been absolutely NO censorship at all in the USA, JP, & EU

for at least the last 2+ years!

Posted in: Man sent to prosecutors over defamatory posts about man who lost wife, child in reckless driving case See in context

The case is the latest in a series of incidents involving online insults in Japan. A justice ministry panel last October proposed tougher penalties for people found guilty of posting hateful comments online.

At present, the penalty against insults is detention for less than 30 days or a fine of less than 10,000 yen. The proposed amendments will introduce a prison term of up to one year and raise the fine to up to 300,000 yen.

Free speech is not only expensive, but now it can be time consuming.

Posted in: Man dies after standoff with police in Tokyo apartment See in context

This is the vaguest piece of journalistic crap, ever.

No specifics, no details, and basically no information, except a young man in his 30's is dead,

and a 'hostage' was wounded.

From the dribs and drabs of info, it sounds like this young man had reached the end of his rope

and took a hostage to steady his nerves, and the police arrived and watched with interest,

until something happened.

I'm glad the hostage is ok, although it doesn't seem even from the very little info dropped here,

that there was intent to harm her.

Everything will be alright tonight

Everything will be alright tonight

No one moves, no one talks

No one thinks, no one walks tonight

Tonight

-David Bowie

And no one attempted to intervene, because they all have better things to do, right?

Shoot yourself and hurry up about it.

What a world.

R.I.P. distraught young man.

Stop sending tax money to protect and perpetuate globalists antics, and use it to help citizens and residents of Japan, as it was intended.

There’s a tax for everything, yet people in Japan suffer.

Japan loves to support every cause but its own!

Without social interaction, school is drudgery, it’s a normal reaction to be uninspired under such conditions!

Eat in silence?

More “science” at work, just like masking, unsocial distancing, etc.

There is no proof any if that works, none. Yet inflict your own paranoia on kids!

Stop it, stop terrorizing kids,

with all these unnecessary, and unproven restrictions and regulations!

Posted in: 'Old Enough:' Netflix show sparks global debate on parenting and child safety See in context

Using children for adults entertainment.

I remember "sports day", and how it bothered me- Always hot, sunny, and the little kids train for it for weeks.

On the actual day, these little ones would "perform" in the hot sun for hours, while their parents watched, under tents.

In winter, little kids were escorted to school in uniform shorts, while the parent wears a goose down jacket and boots.

Kids are not toys, or amusing pets.

Sending little ones (2-6) to the streets to perform tasks without an adult to protect them is not cute or adorable, it's parental neglect.

The same as leaving this age group home alone, is.

You’d think that with modern technology, that hard, durable plastics as well as porcelain would not be so expensive, so as to make dental work less offensive to the eye.

Mining for the minerals to make these batteries will be a sore point.

Also it causes unsightly damage to the earth.

Then, there's the cost of the car and the continual cost of charging the battery.

There are problems with electrical power generation in Japan; one good shake, and you're riding a bicycle.

Posted in: Tokyo cancels Sumida River fireworks festival for 3rd straight year See in context

@iradickle

Probably cause those things actually matter.

People have to work to get the money to pay for those things.

Work and commuting are opened, yet traditional joyful events, are not.

There is more to life than work and paying bills.

FFS, bars are open, events are taking place, basically life is normal.

Normal except most are wearing a mask, and seeing faces is part of being a human being.

And attending traditional outdoor public events that bring people together is part of the experience.

These cancelations are not about health anymore, they're canceling traditions,

replacing joyful events with fear.

It's dehumanizing and isolating.

Posted in: Tokyo cancels Sumida River fireworks festival for 3rd straight year See in context

Work schedules, exams, due-date on taxes, rents, and bills are never canceled, for most any reason.

This cancelation is a money-grubbing, joy-sucking, globalist decision, disguised as ‘for your benefit’...

This is not for your health or ‘benefit’.

It is meant to crush traditions, and demoralize all under the guise of ‘health’.

That’s what globalists do.

Trump asks Putin to help dig up dirt on Hunter Biden

No bias in that headline, nope, none at all...

If a wife of the Mayor of Moscow decided to "gift" one of Trump's sons millions of dollars,

would that not be an open target of curiosity, as to why?

How is asking for that reason in this case, digging for dirt?

This MSM press is so flip, with words, using them to skew, confuse, distort-

Everything but make clear.

Is it any wonder at all, MSM influenced ignorance, is shown in most comments here?

Posted in: Japan begins COVID-19 vaccination for children aged 5-11 See in context

The FDA has been required by a judge to supply 10,000 pages of info on the Pfizer jabs by March 1, 2022, 10,000 more by April 1, and more continuing until late summer!

This was ordered, as Pfizer was not planning to release this info, for 75 years.

75 years.

No parent can give informed consent to give their children this jab until they are fully informed of its contents and effects.

For people who lump these jabs in with other vaccinations, they’re not the same thing, at all.

Take Quercetin & zinc, vit C, D, as a precaution, or Ivermectin if possible, at beginning of illness.

This jab is a bad risk, so say many frontline doctors, researchers and actual immunologists, including the doctor who invented the mRna technology, Dr Robert Malone.

The FDA and Pfizer have interchangeable board members, (conflict if interest?) they had to be taken to court to get information made accessible, and still only in dribs and drabs... Do you trust your children’s health with that?

Posted in: Mother gets 8 years in prison for leaving 3-year-old daughter alone at home for week to die See in context

The Tokyo District Court has sentenced a 26-year-old woman to eight years in prison for parental neglect resulting in the death of her three-year-old daughter by leaving her at home alone for a week in 2020.

A convoluted way of describing a premeditated murder.

Anyone knows if you leave a toddler of 3 alone for a week, locked in somewhere with no food or water, they will die.

The careless cruelty she inflicted on her own child, such pain and suffering,

left in solitary confinement with no food or water.

8 years seems light.
