If you ask any of the locals, they will tell you how against this they are. If you ask the mayor or the governor, they mysteriously think it's okay. How could this be?
It's because the Mayors and prefectural assemblyman are all on the government payroll. There is a disconnect from the will of the people. Local officials are merely yes men to rubber stamp government plans. Its sad and a failure.
The government and corporations have set the goal post where they want them. Of course it's okay.

Absolutely meaningless claims. Why would murder suicide be excluded? Also, a simple probe into the dv police reports would likely reveal more inconvenient news about the character of these confrontations. This report merits allowing father's to take custody of the children. I wonder how many of the children's father's battled for custody. Try factoring that in.

Why would president Trump r anyone not want to wait a measly 2 months to have the vaccine certified with the appearance of credibility? I suspect alterior motives because there is so much that is unknown about the virus not to mention the vaccine. Maybe Trump just doesn't want to worry us. Is it ever okay for us to worry like adults?

If there is a need to defend ourselves that merits bureaucrats wheeling and dealing missiles and rockets, it seems reasonable that we should be supplied with weapons (guns!) to protect our families in the real world.

From what I understand, the four stage system was created by the ministry of health labor and welfare. It appears that Tokyo is now in stage 3, the second highest level.
What I don't understand...
Does this mean that all of Japan is in stage 3? Do the prefectures designate for their areas? Wouldn't the ministry of health be a better source for making the designations?

It doesn't seem plausible that it could be confirmed safe to mix with other vaccines that are changed yearly. Could you imagine taking the flu vaccine and the covid19 vaccine? It's kind of like a leaky vaccine speedball.

I never said I was perfect either, or that I know everything. I've got a feeling we're going to be finding out a lot in the next coming months. I'd like to think that you're right in assuming covid-19 is unlike other sicknesses and compatible with different cocktails of vaccines. why don't you give it a try and tell us how you get on.

What you consider, "some imaginary risks no one can negate" is a perfect example of your issue, lack of humility. Your here still trying to figure everything out. You think you're capable of knowing everything. Don't worry, it'll be okay thats just some imaginary risk that no one can negate. Ha,ha
Get some humility because that attitude is a danger to us all. With this virus there are a lot of unknowables. I wouldn't shrug other people's insights off so carelessly.

The local health department has declared the risks. You might want to try blithering to them. By the way, your diabetes guy would probably die whereas an unvaccinated person would have no demonstratable damage nor factual proof of negligence because vaccines are known to be ineffective sometimes. I thought you could make a better analogy than that. That's all you have to offer for a stance based on facts. The opposite of the health department. Good luck with that.

As I mentioned before, I agree with a lot of the things you say. I'm just not following how are you reach your conclusions. I'm with my local health department who has delayed vaccinations because of a risks concerning covid-19. With all your grandstanding, you seem to imply that anyone who disagree with you is negligent in some way. Could you please stick your neck out and produce a factual opinion regarding vaccinations in the presence of covid-19. All the if and or but of your routine arguments, despite lack of vaccine effectiveness, don't apply as well now. With all due respect, and despite your persuasiveness, I, for now, will remain more skeptical of vaccines than you.

I understand that vaccines are important. However, in the presence of covid-19 or any other pandemic, it would be negligent to vaccinate out of context. It would not be negligent to not vaccinate.
0 ( +0 / -0 )
The fact remains that vaccines are not 100% effective, or preventive. The fact remains that since vaccines are not 100% effective, parents are highly unlikely to be considered negligent if their children miss a dose.
The fact remains that since vaccines are not 100% effective, doctors are unlikely to be considered negligent for not administering, but they are protected if there are complications after administering.
It seems the answers are black and white to me.

I agree with a lot that you say, and I hope that people can benefit from this discussion when deciding for themselves, since there are no blanket vaccinations and only town mandates. One other thing that I would like to mention is that vaccinations do not always prevent the diseases (even after several doses), therefore it would be impossible to, without a doubt, prove a vaccine would have prevented an ailment thus assigning negligence.

To somewhat answer your question, because there are so many unknowns about covid 19, its an unknowable whether mixing the virus with pharmaceuticals would be recommended and administered if a medical professional where to take responsibility for the informed decision of inoculating a baby, infant, or child.
In the case the parent were aware of the implications of dying a covid 19/pharmaceutical induced death from vaccine complications or a natural death from a preventable disease, many parents would have a different opinion, but as for myself, it would depend on the likelihood and risk associated with the natural caused disease and how much responsibility the doctors are willing to take, of course.
Vaccine mandates for schools are cookbook methods for disease prevention. A parent who is aware of any preexisting conditions a child has would naturally be expected to pass the knowledge on to the doctor, so they could make an informed decision about which inoculation cocktails might be reasonable. Keep in mind, the likelihood of a parent not speaking up to a doctor is more likely than not in Japan. Obviously, it is accepted that not all patients will be mandated to inoculate because of pre existing conditions. Id also like to add that the cookbook mandates are flawed in more ways than one. For example, how about all those kids who lost their records in the 2011 disaster? Should they be expected to take them all again?
Im not an antivaxxer so long as individual patient conditions are taken into consideration appropriately. I do think that applying blanket vaccination schedules as a one size fits all prevention technique can be negligent and do more harm than good.

Children who were recently sick cannot have vaccines done from my experience. I know because I have taken my kids to the appointments. That said, experts often have different opinions on issues, even ones you dont like. I wouldnt blame medical professionals for delaying a vaccine in this case, and I would discourage just ASSUMING that everything is okay as you seem to, which is quite misleading and dangerous. Spare us your bias and extremist views about imposing vaccinations unless you are an expert. However, even in that case, you have belittled my confidence in your credibility, also, you shouldnt be posting about when it is safe for other people to vaccinate their children.

Children must be in good health when they take vaccinations. With covid 19, people who are sick often don't show symptoms, therefore it would possibly be negligent and risky for a doctor and parents to vaccinate under such conditions. It is unclear how covid 19 would effect a childs adaptation to the vaccine. A lot of doctors will do it anyway because there is no route to be compensated or for legal ramifications.

You are right on, pawatan... If power companies and the govt industries that promote them, were to sell us (not give) products to make our own sustainable clean energy, they would not be able to profiteer off of our dependence and helplessness. That would be less profitable, but more competitive. More people could actually be in business, rather than out of business, with their copyright sales!

Yeah right zichi, lets convert the plants so the power companies can continue to profiteer off of us. What a innovative way to keep us dependent on power companies who treat us like a resource. Why cant power companies just make money off of us once. Bestow upon us renewable energy that can be stored at our houses or a block grid using fuel cells, wind, solar, etc? The excess can be sold to cities and car producers. Power companies can still make money with their grids. Self sufficiency is the only way that ever made any sense.

Can the plant withstand a passenger jet crash? Can the plant withstand damage to the electronics from electromagnetic pulse? Nope.... If they do not dissassemble these reactors (especially the old ones), they will poison the entire Earth. I would recommend protesters start going to reactors like Onagawa (cracked, flooded, old jolopy) and especially Rokkasho. Rokkasho is the queen bee. Protesting in the towns and facilities is the only thing that will stop this insanity. After all, according to cost benefit analysis, is there a more profitable form of energy production$

The reactors should be examined case by case. Is it near a fault line? Forget it! The industry wants to keep the MOX burning, restart the reactors, so they can profiteer off of us some more. Did you know they are already making funds for future accidents? You can not eat money.

“If we knew what the plans were for the town, then we could have a better idea of what we should do,” says the elder Tabata Town workers in MSR and similar towns are as tight lipped as TEPCO. They still have their membership in the old boys club, and they will do whatever it takes to take the power from the people while they are down, whithout paying a dime. Its all about controling block contracts there.The town workers have no tax base to pay their salaries with. These poor town people cannot support the entitlements of town office workers. That is one of the biggest problems. However, the most crucial problem is lack of access to food and markets. Whats disappointing is, free enterprise and the entreprenerial spirit would have worked much faster than waiting in seiza position for the town office to bestow the peoples marketplaces. Also, lets NOT DARE forget how MSR and all Tohoku people should get rid of Onagawa and Rokkosho before they even think about rebuilding. Those people need somewhere they can run too for crying out loud.

People are expendable, the economy is not. We are just another resource that will be used until we dry up. If we die early, it makes no difference because there will be someone to take our place (our children). One of the reasons they dont evacuate is, if they do, nobody will be around to pay for the clean up. There is only one Japanese economy and there are many, many expendable sheeple.

Japanese fisheries patrol and have a responsibility to maintain all routes around rocks and fish farms. Technically, one needs their permission even to snorkel. Dolphins are in the same family as whales, so this is actually just another form of the kujira mondai. The only difference is they are getting the ingredients for pet food (whale/dolphin meat) in their own waters. O shigoto no tame

Some have mentioned that Mr. Watson has no desire to educate the Japanese people. Why does that baffle some posters? The Japanese people don’t need to be educated because they dont have anything to do with whaling. Common Japanese people, who have no pull, can agree with the devil in their opinions if they want, but the real villians are the ones who profit illegally off of whaling. Yes, it matters how you say and do things, if you want to be persuasive, but Japanese whalers do not care about argumentation or laws. That is why Watson is aloof to educating Japanese, much like Macarthur was (ironic, huh). Whalers are only in it for the money. Anti whaling countries have refused a quota because the Japanese refuse to stop plundering the whaling sanctuary. Japanese will not accept whaling in their own territorial waters, where the SS has no pull, because that would give the impression that Japan accepts that they do not have divine right to international fishing waters, not to mention CESIUM and other more dangerous radiation in the Sanriku sea. The world has agreed to give whales a break, not only because of conservation, but because of moral reasons. Eco fugitives who whale, especially while saying its reasearch, prove that the IWC is like the IAEA of whaling. They do not want to put themselves out of a job. They only care about money. Some have declared the SS eco terrorists. They ARE terrorists to the whalers wallets, thats for sure. Economic terrorists, even though this is all really research, right.

Frungy, somebody has to say something. It is just that the whalers must fight SS if thet want to kill (Arabs are capable of fighting Americans, duh). Somebody has to make a stand to help the defenseless. For someone who advocates keeping opinions quiet, you sure are opinionated. I really liked your, "Gimme 100 yen for the orphans or I'll hit you in the face!" analogy (ha,ha)

I suspect Japanese whalers are under more pressure than ever to take whales from places not within their territorial waters after 3/11 and Fukushima. In Tohoku area, because there was no power, frozen fish and whale stocks were dumped 90 kilometers out at sea because it was rancid. Whale is a main ingredient in dog and cat food in Japan and, although it is unconscionable to kill whales the way they do, up until the tsunami, people in Iwate were doing it to make a living (Pet food is expensive). It would be nice if we could kindly ask Japanese fishermen to take Ebisu (one of their Gods) off of their walls and persuade them that it is not a God given right to take anything they want from our oceans to trade, give as gifts, and/or sell as a form of unquestionable free enterprise under the disguise of research. Unfortunately, they simply do not care what others think. They live on an island for crying out loud. I, for one, along with the majority of people, salute Mr. Watson and SS, the harbingers of justice that they are, for standing up for defenseless creatures being poached and sold for profit.

There are no alternatives to nuclear power because societies that depend on nuclear power are unsustainable and on a road to ruin. Nuclear power and the desire of governments to profiteer inexpensively have catapulted our Earth beyond the limitations of sustainable growth. There is only one alternative now that nuclear folly has become evident. Govts. should empower their people to produce their own enerygy for private use. The extra energy that people cannot store in their fuel cells should be sold to electric companies for distribution to businesses. That means Toyota and the car industry should get ready to take a hit along with their tire, oil/gas, insurance, steel, and road making counterparts.

It sounds as if all the fuel rods are ready to go at the other places, so they might as well be using them or breaking them down. Lets see what happens.
