 It’s a drink not a lot of people haven’t heard of, and even among those who have, even fewer have seen it for themselves.

Sunglasses hide the eyes, allowing cops and officers to see with no one noticing.

It's the same in the US. If you're not a citizen, you can't vote - at any level.

Sorry but that is incorrect

As of 2014, no non-citizen was allowed vote in the United States for federal or statewide elections, though some local governments allowed non-citizens limited suffrage.[139] Before 1926, 40 states had at one point encouraged voting regardless of citizenship status.[140] Voting rights at the local level have also more recently been granted to non-citizens by some town governments, either for school boards or for municipal councils. Examples include: Barnesville (already since 1918), Martin's Additions and Somerset (since 1976), Takoma Park (since 1991) and Garrett Park (since 1999), Chevy Chase Section 3, Hyattsville, Mount Rainier, Riverdale Park, Glen Echo, Montpelier and Winooski (2021).

And look at how that turned out!

If you call this home, and you want to vote. Become a Japanese citizen.

She says in the rest of the article;

For so long I’d been trying not to be “guilty” by association, but the community helped me realize that I wasn’t the only one carrying baggage. Going on playdates or having dinners with other Black mothers and their children in Japan has been good not just for me but for my own children who can learn to embrace their roots instead of hiding them.

I wonder if she goes out on playdates or has dinners with other 'Japanese' mothers. It's not about assimilating, but embracing the other human beings living in the country you now call home.

She's a resident of Japan. Not a tourist.

Posted in: Blue Impulse See in context

The Kawasaki T-4 is a Japanese subsonic intermediate jet trainer aircraft developed and manufactured by the commercial conglomerate Kawasaki Heavy Industries. Its sole operator is the Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF), in part because of historic restrictions on the exporting of military hardware. Besides its primary training mission, the T-4 has been used by the JASDF's Blue Impulse aerobatic team and liaison duties with most fighter units.

@Michael Machida

"One reason for the buzz is that it looks really tasty, but the other reason is that it’s made by Imuraya, the company most famously known for its Azuki Bars."
