Japan's mistake was to have a tight immigration policy.

They should have allowed "illegal" immigrants in so they could now blame them for all their misery.

All of Japan's post WWII decisions were made for them. Of course Nuclear Power courtsey GE (by way of the genial Queen of Eng, via here US colony) was the most egrigious of all.

Having done extensive business in and with Japan, I'll tell you this, it's obvious to anyone with eyes that see that social engineering in Japan is EPIC. As a people, driven insane in 60 years of American hegemony and totally insane due to the curse of their seemingly free energy.

Japan made no mis-takes of it's own. It has been the longest runnign stage-managed nation-hood in recent memory.


The Curse of Free Energy

Japan brings social conforming forces that are so extreme they "wipe" out uraniun forces. Uranus energy brings them to do the most crazy and most extreme weird shit you can imagine because the saturn forces are so extremely powerful.

Japan was supposed to be a model for the other asian countries. They got manufacturing developed and it was supposed to create a 1st world state that would make the other asian countries die to jump into bed. Which is what happened as the west moved from japan to south korea to taiwan to china.

And talk of "rebuilding" post world war II with taxpayer money is another way of saying taxpayer money buying "winners" in manufacturing.

Japan you have 14 year old girls that burn buildings to the ground and china you have 15 year old girls that wear miniskirts made of rubbers full of semen. This is because of the openly and I MEAN OPENLY hostile hentai and child anime porn towards them.

Japan teaches the children to be persistent to insane degrees with mind games like making them ask 100 times for a bicycle before finally giving in. This leads to a bunch of social degenerates that believe no means no until you pester someone to fucking death and break their will. But it makes for armies of people who can openly and viciously attack anyone on  the streets who buys an iphone instead of a nokia. And it makes for people who can mount stalker campains that last a decade or more. This is use of saturn. The part of saturn where you are supposed to expend all your energy and effort to conquer something. Then you simply pick people out of the society that work for the system and you strap the others into computer gaming chairs where they exert their energy on repetitve treadmill game tasks that only require electricity to drain their will and energy forces. It's a profoundly sick society.

They might be ran by the west and western hedgemony but they are employing their own methods to do it. Which brngs us to india which has a similar "thing" with saturn and uranus. And if india isn't careful it will be put on the same crazy train of psychotic expression of control. Fortunately it seems india is resisting it pretty well.

Thanks God the Japanese resisted and continu to resist to the Anglo-Americans multi-ethnic and multicultural global village madness project through massive immigration movements that always result in the genodice of the native populations and the destruction of millenium old cultures and hyper violence (like in Europe right now).

I guess the markets are getting used to bad news. Kind of like wrecking the car 20 times, then having your daughter tell you she just wrecked it again, no big deal.

You should be asking this question: Is California, Washington, Idaho, Alaska and Utah glowing green ? Just for your info, I have been following these developments (like a hawk) from the 11th of March, as well as monitoring "all" available rad monitoring sites on the net. (daily)

Between the EPA, commercial and private radiation monitoring array's in the U.S..

They have all been shut down 100% within the last 4 weeks (period)


P.S. I don't consider RAD-NET and radiationnetwork trustworthy.

Utah will always be "hot"  Yes, background was an average 43 CPM constantly. but next door.......................................?

Check out the comment on July 12, 2011 from Driggs, Idaho as this rad monitor was shut down. Then look at the next message. I was monitoring this site, up until it was taken off the net. There were 300+ CPM spikes starting to occur everyday, until it was shutdown "by someone" ?


Same thing with this one in Redlands, California

It was having 250 CPM spikes (air) and 350+ CPM spikes when they were testing rainwater on August 10th. After that day it has never returned, as it was shutdown "by someone" ?

In a few short weeks the world will visually find out what happens when a nuclear plant explodes and no precaution is taken.  Mothers in their first trimester when Fukashima blew are about to give birth to babies exposed to massive amounts of radiation.  The visual of broken DNA sequences will tip the world on the reality that it faces concerning what will be the greatest man made disaster in the history of this planet.

Poor Japan.  We buy some bearings from them, we have settled on one manufacturer who can sell us what we NEED, no necessarily all we WANT.  That will help impose some dicispline on our company.

But the manufacturer tells us they are REALLY SQUEEZED by high input costs (like almost all of their exporters).  So far, we can live wiith their prices, as they have so far as well.

Fewer machinery orders might free up bearing capacity for us, unless some of those machines are for making bearings...

Our supplier reports no direct problems due to Fukushima.  They are in SW Japan and have kept all of their promises to date post-disaster.  The rotating blackouts I heard about (a while back) do not seem to be hurting them.

WHY are you even manufacturing ANYTHING, anymore???


Manufacturing is soooooo old school and passe.


Just take your company's $$$ and move them into the financial bizzaro world and just flip ETFs and options and futures and 4x and just BE HAPPY!!


Making real stuff is just such a losing game anymore.

Our company in Peru imports rolling bearings (already made) for cars and trucks.  We buy mostly from Korea, some from Japan and a little from China.  Why not from the USA?  Because near monopoly Timken does not want our business.  Imagine that, the foreigners treat us better.

In many ways, the bearing manufacturing business is kind of a lousy one.  High capital costs for precision machinery.  Need skilled workers.  And yet, JUST too many of them so that can't form a cartel.

Making real stuff IS hard.  LOTS of competition.  I would NEVER try to make ANYTHING here in the USA.  No way.

"flip ETFs and options and futures and 4x", the Bearing has lost money almost every time he has played those games, so I am out of that...  Been buying gold over the past decades...
