Did Abe set off the radiation detectors on the way in?

Majority of the time when people post it sounds like… HI :D I’m really retarded, and thank you for taking the time to notice me.

I was looking for a smart-ass response to this idiocy that would include a clip from the early ‘70s Firesign Theater “Kamikaze” tract.

What did I find?

This, from Tim Knight..

I am dying… about ready to roll on the floor and laughing my A off.   :-D

Majority of us don't want to listen to him...

but he speaks to Davos attendees, pointing to re-shaping the world...

no, guess shouldn't listen to him...

unless you're PTB.

Chosen and delivered. Next, Hinde.....!

Oh, sheeples, sheeples (ooops, grasshoopers, grasshoopers...)

the bald one asked some good questions:  visit to shrine & endgame for abenomics.


he finished by saying that Abe's making a new Japan.  


That one is true, Japan will be quite a bit different going forward.  But not in a good way.

More like in a Medieval way, you mean. Though I gotta say, medieval Japan made some great blades.

That's funny, because I don't hear a thing when I read the posts.

Has the idea of encasing the entire country in concrete been table to help stop the radiation as well as stopping Abe from putting in place his plan of re establishing Japan as a militarized empire looking for new war crime merit badges?

Martel's picture

Those cute J-girls need to be transported to safety before pouring the concrete. I myself could find use for a few Japanese 'comfort women'. I doubt Koreans object.

And it's a glowing vision at that.

Wow. What a speech.

The libertarians, Doug Casey and the Globalists must be delighted. What a turbo-capitalist offensive. Almost every sentence in this speech was an attack on the social security and well being of the average people. Corporations will pay even less taxes. Even the 1.2 trn$ pension fund will be transferred to Wall St. casino ("investors"). Energy markets will be fully privatized. And the healthcare sector will be opened for Wallstreet, too. Incredible. I'm wondering what the Japanese media will report about this incredible speech and criminal plan.

Abenomics obviously is the ultimate and final wealth transfer from the productive people to the international banksters before the system will collapse.

No wonder why this person is hailed by the international media.

I envision a country filled with untreatable cancer patients, and mutants roaming the land. And the world is ruled by damned dirty apes!...So solly...wong movie.

Japan is stuck between a Meltdown and soft place.

I have never seen a country I used to think so highly of sink so fast.

Welcome to the 21st century.

Exactly.  Read a Tom Clancy or Michael Crichton novel from the early 80s and you will have trouble "suspending belief".

They rose quickly by selling cheap consumer goods to the ascendent US middle class. Same as CHina has done more recently.

Turns out not to have been a great long-term move. whodathunkit.

I think that part of the plan worked well, I think they just wasted their golden age on consumption, and then borrowed to consume more instead of securing resources or building a soverign wealth fund.

$1 trillion pension fund for how many people? If its only 5 million, then at 5% return they could each have $10,000 per year to live on. If 50 million, $1000 per year could be pretty lean.

I think they made the mistake of letting a for-profit buy a crap US nuke plant design from GE, then made the mistake of trusting the crap GE siting plan, then made the mistake of trusting the crap GE design to last longer than it's design life, then made the mistake of trusting France that Plutonium MOX is a safe fuel in a crap GE reactor in a crap site that's older than its design life then... I'm just sayin....

Plus they're completely screwed up for entrusting an Israeli company, MAGNA BSP, to be in charge of the Fukushima Daiichi NPP security aspects.

Perhaps all the mishaps are simply their very ways in repaying their bad karmas... just saying

For a minute there I thought you were referring to the U.S.S.A

Everything is GLOWING!

Thank you and have a great day!

Why is that a problem just for Japan? What part of the Pacific Ocean off Japan is going to stay over there and not come to our own shores?

Folks around here don't understand a lot of really important shit, and it worries me.

Most of those kids are all dead now.  It's being kept out of the papers, but the massive school consolidation efforts are very telling on how many kids are left in Japan.  So the Chinese don't need to go to war with Japan.

They only need to wait three more years.

cougar_w's picture

The generational implosion due to arrive in Japan over the next 20 years is likely going to become the racial equivalent of an extinction event.

CrimsonAvenger's picture

I believe some pretty crazy shit, but massive numbers of dead children in Japan seems a bridge too far. Source?

FWIW, I did find a good article on school consolidation in Japan due to the declining birth rate -

Joenobody12's picture

Those Japanese kids are better off dead now. They are doomed when they are taught texbooks containing rewritten history. They will grow up believing they are the victim and be as aggreessive as their parents . They will die in the inevitable wars with their neighbor countries.

Wonder if his credit card works????

Backed by the full faith and credit of the BOJ.

Abe is never at a loss for optimistic speech.  Reminds me of someone else on the other side of the Pacific.
