These people have ZERO credibility to discuss anything, anytime, anywhere.

Another globalist propaganda piece.

Filling stations and gasoline are so “outdated”.

Not much character in people who wait till someone is dead, to criticize.

You'd think they'd keep it zipped till after the funeral.

Posted in: 72-year-old man arrested for threatening to kill ‘noisy’ tenant living above him See in context

Loud, thumping footsteps, so fierce that they cause bottles to clink and rattle on the bureau in the apt below, continual rumbling of opening and closing Japanese-style closet and room doors on those small pulley wheels, that sound like an earthquake approaching... Continual opening and closing of noisy sliding glass doors, and morning and evening rolling up and down of storm like shutters, and screens slammed shut, can jolt a person out of sleep.

Landlords blame you for complaining, and say it is to be expected, living in a “mansion” building...

No, it’s called carpeting, and consideration for others.

I have since moved to a top floor apt., with doors with hinges, and will never endure that horror, again.

I 100% understand this man’s frustration, and how oblivious people can drive you to that point.

Police can be called, but if the offending person doesn’t answer the door, they won’t pursue it further...

Rental agencies won’t talk between other agencies, to air grievances, and many agencies are used for one apt bldg.

It’s a system sorely needing reform, in no mistake.

Noël Coward.

George Carlin.

Beatrix Potter.

Vincent van Gogh.

Sergei Rachmaninoff.

Coco Chanel.

Tom Waits.

In truth I believe every one of us has a quality that makes us unique.

But there are some who inspire me greatly...

She played Nurse Ratched to perfection.

Fletcher’s career was also hampered by her height. At 5-feet-10, she would often be dismissed from an audition immediately because she was taller than her leading man.

R.I.P. Tall lady...

Posted in: Stressed out, burned out and dropping out: Why U.S. teachers are leaving the classroom See in context

Many are refusing to comply with government vaccine mandates.

Although the 'pandemic is over', the mandates in some districts, persist.

Also, the curriculum being presented by teachers' unions, is not agreed upon by many teachers.

Critical race theory, along with perverse sexual material, unsuitable for elementary to middle schoolers, is also part of curriculum.

Many teachers do not want to participate in this, as it is inappropriate, and has little to do with the subjects they have spent years in preparation to teach.

Many are overburdened with the influx of illegals into the country, due to the open borders.

This is creating unnecessary stress, to an already difficult job.

After 2 plus years of staying home and teaching only remotely,

being able to teach in a classroom under normal conditions, would be welcomed...

But conditions are not normal, in this current climate.

I can see a person being manipulated, and giving over money, that's common enough-

But not to the degree that you would be unaware that you were harming/starving your own child.

That is truth staring right at you.

The judge is inept.

The psychopath is guilty, but so is the mother.

Also, that poor little boy had no pre-school teachers, no govt. agency intervention, no health checks, no neighbors, friends or relatives, and no father, to check in on him?

R.I.P. Little soul.

Posted in: Japan weighs plan for ban on hotel guests without masks: report See in context

Japan, always playing the “precious” card...

Even if the dollar is strong to the yen, no one wants to participate further in this “mask” madness, or is blind to its implications:

Bring your dollars and wear a mask.

As others have said, if you can’t open without these restrictions, don’t bother.

Posted in: Is a universal basic income feasible or desirable? See in context

These are ongoing manipulations using "climate change" "covid 19" "war with Russia" fill in the blank, to justify high taxes, inflation, high housing & energy costs designed to ruin stable economies in stable nations and ruin the people in these nations.

Remember, these issues were created by this same group of people, who now suggest this universal wage.

A way to dispose of countries and governments, personal wealth or property.

Social credit, you "misbehave" by stepping outside of their rules, and you are cut off.

Surveillance, lack of privacy, lack of freedom.

This isn't from a Ninja Turtles cartoon, but it sure seems like it.

Wake up.

There must be at the very least, a headcount.

How much energy does it take to give the bus a “once over” before shutting the doors to park.

It’s not the fault of age, it’s negligence, full stop.

3 years old, left that long, and no one was aware.

This ought to be a rude awakening to parents who park their babies in daycare-

It’s a job, to them, not all care as much as you do.

Sue them out of “business”.

Nice to see no masks in sight!

A strange phenomena.

In the west, masks for photos, that are removed to go into the street.

In Japan, no masks for photos, but they’re put on, to go into the streets...

Blanchett has played LGBTQ characters before

Why does playing a role, which also happens to be that of a lesbian, need to be lumped into a group, as if they were all the same, like an ideology?

Is that like a teamsters union for gay people?

Wait till they start dropping on the courts of "Sudden Adult Death" syndrome;

the PC language used for death (or disablement) from jab induced stroke, myocarditis, and/or heart attack.

A strange kind of sport, where someone else can decide for you that training and leading a healthy lifestyle are inadequate; you must gamble with your life, to play...

Posted in: Abe's state funeral to cost ¥250 million See in context

The controversial state funeral for slain former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe next month is going to cost the Japanese government around 250 million yen, government sources said Thursday.

The government has no money without people’s taxes, so why not say this event will cost the people of Japan approx. 250 million yen.

A phone poll is the amount of participation of opinion the people who are supposed to pay for this, are given.

And even then, the majority said no.

The globalists throughout all the world’s governments are all acting with the same arrogance and impunity, like dictators.

Posted in: Police seek indictment of man who tweeted Kishida assassination threat See in context

This is what desperation looks like, when people see their leadership as indifferent.

When your vote means nothing, your increasing taxes spent without your consent as to where it’s going, and you see it’s not going back to you or your countrymen, quality of life does not improve, wages are never raised, but cost of living becoming unmanageable...

A person feels invisible, and no longer feels there is anything to lose.

The person who shot Mr Abe was another voice, unheard.

Violence and threats are not the answer, but when they seem to be the only way to communicate, is there any wonder why they happen?

People are not serfs/ATM’s, they’re your constituents.

Listen, and look for ways to improve quality of life for citizens/residents, first.

If you want a state funeral, get a sponsor, do not expect the public to absorb the costs for it all, like the Olympics, the sequel.

Enough is enough.

This should clear up to many that "medicine" is a business.

The medical emblem of a serpent on a rod is in the shape of a dollar sign.

If your emergency stands to enrich the hospital, you are admitted,

otherwise, you have what you see here, not necessarily ineptness,

but indifference.
