    The title should be Buying Into Failure. Japan has neither saved money nor protected the people from radiation.

    Um, raising taxes and cutting spending to rebuild Japan's finances is going to hurt. Japan has the highest public debt in the industrial world. When you see spending cuts from the government that's going to hurt. You really have to cut from your budget to wipe out debt in the real world. Handaya restaurant, Shimamura clothing store here I come.

    Mai Kurihara's family lives in Natori, Sendai up in the Tohoku area. We're all shocked to hear about her death in Sendai.

    ...maybe now there will be enough foreign pressure to get this thoroughly taken care of

    Hey! The J. Nuclear Village are invincible and they know that. Since way back in 2002, the New York Times published a paper something saying "Something has happened to the Japanese, and it doesn't look good" and nothing good happened.

    It will take a chain reaction, maybe, to get everything taken care of IMHO.

    Those unruly Chinese fans, they are a burden aren't they? At the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, I don't really think creating an uproar during the Japanese anthem or pelting the Japanese fans with garbage would be a good thing.

    We will pay the debt of support we owe the world from the time of the tsunami.

    There's an inside meaning for that from the J.gov. people. They know of the Economic Value Between Citizens & Tourists. Basically, when we lose one person in Japan, we need seven tourists. This is based on figures before the Senkaku Islands tussle when the Chinese tourists were spending lots of money each time for each visit.

    It kind of makes you sick when a government worker says the truth to you in your face, but PM Abe is famous for staging "town meetings". It's all a facade.

    Well, that's gonna be 2,511 days left until the 2020 Tokyo Olympic starts. Can't wait. The last two years left before the Olympics will take the longest. Do you guys remember Korea/Japan 2002 World Cup. That felt forever.

    On Disaster Prevention Day you should go under a table like PM Abe shows in the picture to prevent injury to the head. But there are more injuries you must remember to prevent from happening. In Ishinomaki General Hospital, doctors treated patients with low temperature, lung inflammatory, drug abuse from sleeping pills, skin eye nose allergy, and shock. There were patients with intestinitis, but remember alcohol doesn't kill a virus. Good luck to all when a disaster hits. From my experience after 3/11, everybody for themselves until help arrives.

    That came on top of the admission that groundwater contaminated by water from the plant was flowing into the sea at a rate of 300 tons a day, taking its low-level radioactive load with it.

    Have you done the math on 300 tons a day since March 11th?

    902 days have passed since March 11th, 2011. A ton of water has about 239.65 US gallons. So, 239.65 x 300 x 902 = 64,849,929 gallons of radioactive water into the ocean and counting.

    The Hanford plant in the states leaked one million gallons into the soil. Hey, at least in the states one million gallons of radiactive brew was the limit and they worked to fix the problem.

    Pete Rose was interviewed by NHK tonight and says 20% of Ichiro's hits were through the infield. Yeah, Ichiro didn't bloop all his hits over the infield; Ichiro out ran the infield players throws to first. Pete Rose says know one will ever duplicate Ichiro.

    ...the highly radioactive water seeping into the ocean from the Fukushima plant was creating an "emergency"...

    ...which is expected to take more than 40 years and cost $11 billion.

    Any highly radioactive substance takes 10,000 years to fully decay.

    One object fell down in my kitchen from this earthquake. My Au phone early warning earthquake system sounded after the M6 finished. At the tail end of this earthquake it went up and down a little. It was mostly side to side. Hope everybody else is OK.

    He won in the Supreme Court in June last year -Japan's first such whistleblower case.

    There was another whistleblower case deserving protection before this one.

    The Defense Ministry can review all it wants, but Article Nine of Japan's U.S.-drafted 1947 writes,

    ...renounces the right to go to war and prohibits the maintenance of a military. Period.

    BTW, Japan has been easing Article Nine since 1983.

    A fact of life in Japan. Japanese drivers favor Mercedes Benz cars, DaimlerChrysler AG, Volkswagen AG, and BMW AG.

    A fact of life in America. Imported cars are never considered for membership or affiliation as a true muscle car.

    Some experts said it was surprising that any increase in cancer was even predicted.

    I remember reading about Radiation Causes Cancer but Rarely in a 2005 article in the New York Times. It says, ``The health risks -- particularly the development of solid cancers in organs --rise proportionally with exposure.'' Also it also says, `But ... prudence should be the guideline and exposure to any unnecessary radiation should be avoided and what is unnecessary is up to an individual.''

    the defendant had shown remorse

    He was coached by his defense team in other words. Kudo's for the defendants lawyers. Believe it or not, there are Japanese lawyers and Amnesty International defending youths to not be executed. It's not positive for society even though the minors kill people. I'm just the messenger.

    BTW, I hope he roasts in hell. Imagine him heaved into everlasting fire, howling and screeching.

    Bologne. My money will be on wireless electric charging on the fly. The local buses in Sendai City will be using them first in 2015. There is a silver lining after the March 11th disaster.
