Stupid Abe has yet to realize that Japan is a rapidly greying nation which is being supported by its young workers.Workers are being screwed to the nth degree with the highest rates of tax in Japanese history.
Why do young families have to pay tax on food,baby clothes and education ?
They don't know but look at the birth rate!
Japanese have given up having kids since they can't afford it.....

When the top level executive is complimented on his/her skill at eating with chopsticks and told that their Japanese level is
good despite not being able to utter the most trivial of greetings then they will truly know they are somewhere different.
Not getting mugged after a night out walking home will also convince that they are truly somewhere extra dimensional....

It's easy for Prez Obama to say don't 'give in to fear' when he never travels on the trains or buses nor does he have to go out for his weekly food shop.It is easy for him to allow the embassies in Sierra Leon and Liberia to keep on approving visas when there is no known cure for Ebola to date!
Didn't he take note of the WHO's forecast of thousands of new cases a week by December?
Prez Obola has a nice cosy hermetically sealed bunker to hunker down in when tshtf- the average American ?

'She and other health care workers wore protective gear, including gowns, gloves, masks and face shields — and sometimes full-body suits — when caring for Duncan. Health officials have said there was a breach in protocol that led to the infections, but they don’t know where the breakdown occurred.'
The fact is that doctors and nurses are catching Ebola through air transmission!
There are studies to show that Ebola is carried through the air.
Do hospitals treating Ebola take this into consideration?
If they do not then many doctors and nurses will be infected.
The WHO has stated that by December that there will be from 5,000 to 10,000 cases a week!
Imagine what this will do do to world trade and travel?

Why should food be taxed by any government ?
Many people are on the poverty line and those with children need to pay more tax for their kids to eat?

If nuclear power is so safe and it is not necessary for residents to be part of any 'approval process' then why isn't it the case nuclear power companies are not insurable for damages?
