A judge’s personal opinion on a crime he gave a verdict on seems like an unprofessional use of power.
He made a judgement, his personal opinion past a trial is moot.
He is taking advantage of his position as an ”insider” in a similar way that politicians take insider information to trade in stocks.
In his case, it’s a sloppy abuse of power.
With authority comes responsibility, and this judge is behaving unprofessionally, imo...

This is meant to sound like a good thing- Like working for a company in a profession that was desired, trained for, and once served as full-time employment, is now benevolently offering employees the “opportunity” to branch out and “get a second job”...
Air travel was once an affordable and prevalent part of life, and now they’re attempting to normalize dysfunction, not only in this but in every aspect of (non elite) human life; health, economic, social, etc.
This isn’t about Russia, COVID-19, Climate change, or pick your favorite globalist excuse/scapegoat-
It’s about their attempt to con people into accepting guilt, blame, and a sub-standard quality of life, to follow an agenda that has only control as its goal.

"I would like to thoroughly explain to the public through parliamentary debates with opposition parties" about the tax hikes, Kishida said.
Explain with debates with opposing parties what you’ve already decided to do...
That doesn’t sound like a debate, or an explanation to me...
All these globalists are dictators that pretend your views matter, but in truth while they’re in place, they don’t.

On trade, Nishimura reiterated calls for the United States to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership after former President Donald Trump abandoned an earlier version of the pact in 2017.

As long as there are limits placed, leave them alone.
Friends playing games together is a great reliever of stress, and strong bonds are formed...
Kids have stress and worries too.
When it replaces life; work, school, sleep, eating properly, etc., then it’s time to dial it back a bit, but otherwise, let them enjoy their time with friends, playing games! A lot of creativity and inspiration also comes from this, not just negatives!

People can’t use full power in winter without worrying if they can afford it, or even buy groceries, but yes, let’s hike taxes.
IMO the salaries paid these maroons needs to be cut to the point where when they make such idiotic statements,
they too can share in the results.

All too often the politicos in Tokyo utter discriminatory and racist drivel.

One’s opinion is free speech.
Being made to apologize for it, is censorship.
I remember when speaking honestly made people less tense, and there was more humor about everything.

How do you feel when you are talking to someone and they are looking at their smartphone?
The person who can’t take their face away from a smart phone screen to engage with another human is sadly all too common.

Attempts to insult, humiliate, or verbally browbeat another in order to lessen their resolve or confidence in their own thoughts, is what gaslighting is...
It is used as a tool of censorship; to attempt to control critical and/or independent thought, not by using logic or reason, but by mental bullying.

Posted in: Japanese labor authorities have confirmed that a transgender employee developed depression due to a strong psychological burden caused by harassment related to sexual orientation or gender identity, or SOGI, and recognized it as a work-related disease eligible for workers' compensation insurance benefits.

Pedestrian crossings should not be left unregulated, as some pedestrians assume right of way, as do car drivers.
Traffic lights, with a “press button to cross” to change light for pedestrians, need to be installed in more areas.
Then, “I didn’t see her” is moot, if you ran a red light.
I personally don’t attempt a cross unless there is nothing coming, or the car stops first,
but not all do that.
RIP poor woman.
