No more need be said. Good job, Tyler.

Hmmm.... wonder if the those detectors had their detection sensitivity increased?

Wonder if Japan will be blamed for bottom line losses to the airlines?

Just another US gov't initiative to put further blame and shame on a nation clearly struggling to survive at this point.

The Japanese passengers will be easy to see because they tend to glow in the dark.

The director of Homeland security just stated on the radio, HS has been inspecting cargo and people from Japan and have found no radioactivity.


HS is right on top of the situation as usual.

When we end the Fed, HS needs to be included.

Investors may want some facts and figures that ignore opinion on Japan too: blog post

Obama is going to detail how bad things are in Japan, advise all non-essentail personnel to leave Japan, and express his sympathies for the bitchez left behind

That guy is so beyond hope it's embarassing. When does someone call "uncle" and begin impeachment proceedings? I mean seriously.. WTF is this guy doing?!

He is doing his job: Weakening / Destroying the United States of America's worldwide influence and power.

Left or Right, if you ascribe this motivation to him. Everything he is doing starts making perfect sense.

A politician's job is to talk out of both sides of his mouth, saying one thing and meaning another.  Is any politician different?

That's the explanation! I just got home from work and have been trying to figure out what has pumped up the market so much. Next time there is a pause in the market they should set off a few nukes here.

ever since %25 of our populatiuon started dying of radiation sickness, we havent had to lie about unemployment numbers so much. radiation is good for the economy.

Here's the deal...
We got all the empty houses...
Japan got all the unhoused people...

We import the people and house them...
In exchange for forgiveness on our debt which they hold...

Then they all die or radiation sickness anyhow...
And we still got the houses...

Dude, a repeat of Pebble Beach, Rockefeller Center and and the upper half condo arrangement of Citicorp Center.

Seriously, I thought about that--plane loads of Japanese with loads of cash coming to America and helping out with that housing slump. Right now I'm praying for two guys from Tokyo to start a bidding war on my mom's front lawn.

He will just have to find other people to kill, then.

Apparently that was the idea -- use the rebels to provide a reason to go in but be sure to wait until the rebels are not a viable force in the aftermath -- which of course they aren't if we let Gaddafi kill them all.

Or, alternatively, posture and let gadaffi stay...  IF he keeps the oil pumping.

How would you like it if we had a rebellion and some outsider came here and said that they thought they would have to interfere in our national business?  How would you like that?  It is not our responsibilty nor is it our business to bother other nations about their internal matters......

That would be ideal.  We'll need lots of help getting rid of our corrupt gov.  Just like when the French helped us leave the King of England.

Oh, no worries.  False alarm.  There was a guy with a dirty bomb on the plane and that's what set them off.  Nothing to see here!

I enjoyed playing the games up through the tenth one.  When it came out, I thought that it would be as good as the storyline for one of them.  Sadly, they must have spent all their cash on the effects, leaving nothing for the writers, so they got an enviro-hippy to write it for free.

It was certainly a special effects spectacular, but the plot was just all over the place.  It might have made a good game--maybe a venture into the survival horror genre.

Ah well.  Not much time for games these days.

Don't worry, it's cool. It's not like radiation can penetrate aluminum airline fuselages or anything.

So, I'm wondering how long it will take to contaminate every international airport?

Now I'm beginning to think that never lettign a good crisis go waste, this is somehow going to be used as an attempt to thrus NWO agenda. In some huge way. Clearly, world populations are on edge, were even before Japan, now more so.

At such times, people gladly give up their freedumbs for a little security.

Which is always a chimera or short-term anyways.

And they set them off in Rahm town too.
