Nothing to worry about.  Kudlow said those were just mustard seeds of growth being spread.  Now get back to being a slave already.

... and here was I getting trolled the other day for supporting the US making their assistance contingent on the Japanese removing the affected reactor site from service (i.e DTFC).

Doesn't look so unreasonable now.... The cultural inability to lose face that is delaying this being handled properly is a disgrace. There are some sh1tty governments around the world but Japan is quickly looking to surpass them through inaction and become the sh1ttiest.

There is a neutron beam being emitted from the plant....

This means that reactor is breached, right?

It means the reactor is breeched "IF" that is where the beam originated, the only other likely point of origination is the spent fuel rod pool. The real point and as much a concern as a breech, is that criticality or nuclear fission must occur to produce a neutron beam and fission is not supposed to occur in a shut down reactor or a spent fuel pool.

Bad sign if it continues. Wait until the proper authorities tell Tokyo residents that not only should they not give tap water to infants, but do not  give it to anyone who was ever an infant.

The Vulcans have detected the neutron beam in outer space. They were expecting a warp trail, but we fell a little behind in the technology. They will be along shortly and fix the reactor and provide us with anti-matter reactor technology.

If only it were that easy. Many here have questioned the method of entombment and the possible epic cost and wasteland buffer needed. The tomb has to last to eternity and will forever scar a large area in Japan.

But the Chernobyl sarcophagus was only designed to last 30 years, so why do we need to meet the "eternity" criteria?  BTW, Chernobyl sarcophagus is 25 years into its 30 year life, and is known to be leaking badly already.  The "super sarcophagus" has not been funded yet, nor has a construction project been planned to my knowledge.

Perhaps Japan can declare Fukushima a "public microwave" where we can all reheat our udon noodles and day old pizza for free.

That's why I suggested demolishing the outbuildings and turbine halls, building earthen dikes around the four reactors, flooding them with water/boron/tin. Cool them down first. Consider how to take them apart later or shove them in the damn ocean, shallow water or not. You can pour concrete in water as well as dry.

Funding?  Probably in negotiations with the US to provide funding for all costs associated with the new sarcophagus, assuming of course that the Ukraine supply the workers.

Oh, OK, well, let's just continue pouring water on it from the ocean since that has worked well so far. We wouldn't want to "scar a large area in Japan" with concrete now would we?

Whatever happened to Larry Kudlow's "mustard seeds"?

I don't think they ever really sprouted --- probably because they were sterile Monsanto GMO mustard seeds.

I've seen surreal times before, but nothing holds a candle to these most surreal of times.

There's no mention of Fukushima in any significant way on Amerika's Main Stream Propaganda Channels, whatsoever, and articles from AP and Reuters about recent events are 'revised' as often as BLS data.

The economy is always 'recovering' or 'expanding' according to them, and setbacks like the record low mortgage application and housing sales data are but speedbumps and not reversals.

In Amerika, I don't think it's unreasonable to assume that the MSM and Government are literally working in concert to put the most positive spin on every data point, and hide the ugly reality of national and global events from the sheeple. I believe that the strong cirumstantial (and I'd argue direct in many cases) evidence is there to make this case.

We are indeed living in interesting times.

I have come to the conclusion that the (corporate) media and the (corporate) government are just two faces of the same entity. Depending on how they want to release information and how they want to manipulate the populace, they wear the appropriate face for the task at hand. They are equivocally the same.

When a few large corporations own the media outlets and a few large corporations own the government, it is natural to consolidate redundant operations, hence the DEA paid producers of television programs to incorporate anti-drug and other favored themes into their programming. Google "Operation Mockingbird" to understand just how embedded the government is within the media.

1984 is real and we are living it, its just they realized that they would need to tone it down, once Orwell raised awareness to what our future might be.

I concur but the interesting does not describe what is occurring. Being drugged up on LSD would not even result in the same surreal events. Pink Unicorns and BEnron is riding down the Yellow Gold Brick road to the land of Oz to see the good wizzard Mr. Buffet.

Wow! Just read this for the first time (From: They Thought They Were Free):


"What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it."


Take out the reference to "that paper-hanging son-of-a-bitch" (Patton's phrase), and doesn't cut pretty close to home? Damn!



doesn't [it] cut pretty close to home?

On Nuclear Boy, I am speechless.

The article below depicts how the Tawainese are handling the news. I imagine US and global MSM are not far from it.


I am reminded of the nursery rhyme: Round and round and round it goes, where it stops (lands) nobody knows. Ashes, ashes we all fall down.

The sad, pathetic thing is that the true reason for our disinformation is that TPTB dont want us to pull all our money out of the banks/markets, and not because they dont want to scare or upset people unneccessarily, they could care less about that, they just dont want the world's economy to crash. At least not just yet.

Interesting times indeed.

For those who read the article, people in Taiwan don't want to hear anything close to reality reported, because they're afraid it's "hurting their mental state."

Maybe the 100 or so people who complained should turn off their f'in TVs. Sure media whores like to over sensationalise and focus on disaster, but if you believe that TV could ever be good for your mental health then you are already beyond help. Legislating that news should be full of unicorns and rainbows ain't going to help.
