A man with principles. Full BDS of the illegal Israeli apartheid state
You can disagree with the politics of the israelean government but refusing to engage with someone from a certain country is just blatant rasiscm. Like actual rasiscm. The term is used so inflationary nowadays that it almost lost its meaning but this a textbook example. Just because someone was born in a certain country doesnt mean that that person supports the actions of its government.

Everyone is complaining about 60+'s for being responsible for the majority of incidents. But they acutally make up more than 30% of the population, so with 25% of the incidents they are underrepresented.

stimulus measures to buoy the economy after an upcoming consumption tax hike
Cripple the economy first by raising taxes and then pump taxpayers' money back into it to absorb the negative effects of the tax increases. Create a problem and offer the solution.
