Posted in: Public pressure forces gov't to consider phasing out nuclear power See in context

If the Japanese people don't want nuclear power the issue should be closed. Nobody can guarantee that there won't be another nuclear incident. Personally, my family's safety comes above any economic factors. Daylight savings time would help with the summer demands for electricity.

There's a movie (not so good) named Billy Jack goes to Washington that deals with the issue of nuclear reactors and fault lines that shows how one man can stand up and make a difference.

I thought the smaller boat was always to blame. I'm surprised they didn't fire on the tanker.

Thank goodness the father had some restraint. If it was my daughter I'm afraid the guy wouldn't need a trial, I would (if a dash to my Embassy didn't pan out).

Did last year's earthquake cause any shifts in currents? I always assumed unusual migrations are due to temperature and oxygen level changes, but I'm not a biologist ( nor do I play one on TV).

Subcontracting a nuclear job is ridiculous. Even janitors need to be trained. They might be the last person standing.

That's a story for the grandkids if the doctors are right. I'm a bit surprised that they can predict the IC stay with a head injury like that.

Wonder how many calls for help they got from people sniffing markers or inhaling glue fumes.

Posted in: Rodney King, key figure in 1992 LA riots, found dead in swimming pool See in context

He died a hero in my book. A few choice words from him at the time could have made things alot worse, and after the beating he took it would have been hard to blame him.

Farms must be small to notice 250 cobs of corn stolen. No wonder the prices are outrageous in Japan.

Clearly the end is near. Depending on your faith, it's either time to repent or time to start having fun.

Posted in: Noda says Oi reactors must be restarted to protect economy, people's livelihoods See in context

How about going to an insurance company and asking them to quote a price on business interruption insurance assuming the reactors stay offline. If the premium is small, leave them off and roll the dice.

2020-It almost sounds like you believe that. The corporate tax breaks aren't going to create any jobs, just profits. This is tinkle down economics at it's worst ( there's a sponge at the bottom to suck up the excess urine).

Why don't they repeal the lower corporate tax rates that went in this year before they ask the people to suffer?

Fadamore-I assumed the concussion was because he was drunk( or stoned), but I shouldn't have jumped to that. He is a hard working young man trying to deal with what life has given him, and his is perfect. WZ -WW in L).

Posted in: 2 arrested for forcing 14-year-old girl to swim naked in pond See in context

One or both of the dads need to teach the guy some good old act-right. 22-14 is predator behavior in my opinion ( except in cultures with arranged marriages). I know when I was 14 I hated the older guys coming to the party for a one nighter with girls I had loved since kindergarten.

Posted in: Former comedian arrested for uploading child pornography See in context

From prior posts, I am still not clear who is considered a child in this country. I'm a bit understanding of the arguement in the US of 17 or 18, who can tell, but under 10? Really? Hope the guy gets time. If he doesn't, it's another black eye for Japan. In the US, I think 20 to life would be reasonable for this crime. Death if it was my daughter (and I had access).

Nessie- I'm in total agreement. Two or three plants in your closet is personal use. 50 plants in your apartment is a factory. Nobody could function smoking that much product alone.

Japan, please accept our humble invitation to become the 51st State. We will change our currencies to the Yellar and manipulate the markets for the next 20 years, after which we can part ways and revalue our original currencies again.

I look forward to the eventual square meter grid mapping out Tokyo's hotspots. Hope there is some control around the process to make it believable, or at least that the false negatives the jgov creates are offset by the false positives from the anti-nuke crowd.
