For every degree it melts down over the next week the Dow will melt up in accordance with the Divine Doctrine of Bernanke and Co.

Agree. An uncontrollable nuclear meltdown in the third largest developed economy is priced in.

The real question is: how does this story help anyone?

A) Cynical people will use it to profit. Fine - but rest assured, you're a scumbag.

B) The crowd that already sees what it wants to see will use it to prop up their worldview.

C) It does not. Read another source that doesn't include a thread full of hypocrites.

...the news just gets better by the day from Fukingshambles . . .

. . . is the Jap Govt still insisting on its micro-management (meddling) white gloves for their taxi drivers while they move the health limit goalposts for the clueless and useless at Tepco!

Good observation ZeroG. Japan is/was a classic case of beuraucratic freeze. What they do manage and what they don't... mad-making when you are there.


But regardless, very hard to see any humor in this situation, hmmm?

Some of us had seen the ominous nuclear accident waiting to happen a long time ago! 

And now, Sellafield is back in the news.

What she did actually say was, “…The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself… the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”

This story should help readers understand the state of the world as should other informative sources.  What do you mean "helping anyone"? do you mean that only news with a "good" twist of the truth should be reported????  go back to watching FOX news pleeeeez!  All is well over there.

Fukushima follows a standard universal Government policy.

Nuclear meltdown occuring - lie about it

Economic meltdown and depression - lie about it

Terrorist who cannot be caught - lie about it

Leaks about your foreign policy creating the thing that you claim you want to solve - lie about it

Sovereign defaults - lie about it

PM market manipulation - lie about it

Printing money causing rampant inflation - lie about it

Peak oil forcing you to invade oil nations - lie about it

etc. etc.


As the crises get worse - the lies get more unbelievable...until everyone loses faith in what they're told and we have to go back to basics - trust what you know and who you know - everyone else is assumed to be a liar.

Of course commerce does not do well in such an environment - and there is no lie which can cover that up.

The real question is: how does your comment help anyone?

Your Username would imply you do some actual "research"

Your comment however is a vacuum...and both nature and I abhor a vacuum.

The story helps by giving information and encouraging people to "do some research" to find further information from diverse sources that will allow them to make informed decisions - decisions that may effect their long term health and survival. 

Your comment simply allows people to marvel at your stupidity and/or duplicity. 

I wish your Father had used a Scumbag - we would have all been spared your pathetic input.
