Snippet:

Fukushima-Simpson…Topic for today is the Disaster Gift that keeps on Giving, Fukushima. You may not remember this since it long ago dropped off the pages of the MSM and Faux Newz, but Fukushima was the Nip Nuke Reactors that melted down, caught on fire and began spewing radioactive material out into the environment back in 2011 in the aftermath of Sendai quake and ensuing Tsunami that hit the coast of Honshu Island smack dab in the Fukushima prefecture.. The latest newz from the Tokyo Electric Power Company, aka TEPCO is that so solly, we will need to start dumping 100 tons of radioactive water into the Pacific every day. However, we ASSURE you the radiation level of this water is perfectly safe. The reason we can assure you of that is because every time the readings go higher, we declare higher levels to be safe!

Da Goobermint here in the FsoA follows much the same path, in this case though rather than keep raising the bar on what is an acceptable level of daily Radiation Vitamins to ingest, they simply elect not to monitor it! On the theory that if you don;t know about it, it can’t hurt you. Not to mention when leukemia victims start suing, they can claim this wasn’t under their jurisdiction and therefore they are not liable. Go sue TEPCO…

For the rest, LISTEN TO THE RANT!!

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
