An earthquake hit part of Japan –9.0, so fearsome, horrific, powerful –destructive it leveled entire Northern island end and engendered tsunami so large residents, viewers in shock, awe and fear –yet has pluses.
I am not an optimist. –I Always look two -three jumps ahead for behind-scene deceit -corruption -coercion, down-side, down-turns -depression -down-market = opportunities –for exposure, truth.
So to look at result of massive destruction –on careful, competent, conservative country –people: invites thoughtful positives –many pluses, in my view –some pluses like–
Powering America –any country, on nukes: very VERY stupid. Weasels are crawling out of their lobbyist holes -all kinds of hiding places, to mouth mealy –‘must have nukes’ —
energy pot of gold –for them. But: we DO NOT “need” nukes –radiation death –legacy of poison for future generations on “buried” left-over toxic waste. Nope, NO More Nukes –on beach fronts –on “safe” ground –any place, USA.
–They AIN’T “safe” –“clean” –“efficient” –“bargain” energy. Energy –from nukes –such a “good” idea?
Really? Okay, two things:
1. IF nukes, plants ‘so good’ –“good” for carbon footprint: tell me Exactly, specifically WHERE do spent –toxic nuke rods go after they’re used? Which train –which truck, driver will take those rods –WHERE —through your state –to? Your neighborhood or somebody –anybody else’s?
People in Nevada: still smarting over promises –LIES The Thug told them when he was campaigning to get into the White House, *poof* AFTER he got “elected” by no-longer supreme court. Though he promised NOT: The Thug shipped spent nuke rods. –There to rest WE HOPE –without leaking –killing generations, for centuries….
But oh gee, President Obama: shut down the Nevada Yucca Mountain hole in the ground for toxic rods. Where to tuck toxic waste now –some lawmakers wonder?
2. Nukes –so good: then let’s put a nuke plant ON the lawn –of the White House. No? Then How about storing: at YOUR house?
We DON’T “need” bombs –sub-boats –shelters –plants of nukes. From now ON: we demand –reps in Congress– “NO NUKES” in the US. So lobbyists: get outta town, go get a decent job.
But WHERE are the French “storing” their toxic radioactive rods —during the YEARS for those to cool off? hmm….
US nuke plant ‘managers’ move toxic spent rods –to?
Local utility companies “store” toxic nuke hot and cooled rods: on site –right on earthquake faults –in neighborhoods –on coasts –IN cities… that would be hit in a tsunami -hurricane -tornado….
REAL daVine Remedy –for climate-changing we Are doing to planet? Pres. Obama must MUST make an Energy Plan –NOW. He MUST: ignore all the money nuke industry shoved at him -Congress while campaigning for office.
Members of Congress who are speaking for nukes: MUST ignore the $372 MILLION bucks they got from nuke industry.
Plus Number 2:
The ONLY reason the United States can function –pay bills: bond market –borrowing –every week. Who buys our bonds –loans us money to keep on keep’n on? Near-biggest buyer: Japanese. But Now: Japan needs its money –and plenty more to reconstruct, get back to normal.
Highly unlikely Japanese will show up: at our weekly beg-fests, loan us big bucks for looong time. So right NOW: we must turn to biggest suckers of our dwindling cash –Penta-goons. Those “patriotic” pushers of TVs into EVERY room of every base and jets, weapons, tanks —extra unwanted motors NOBODY needs –so they can fight the last war Penta-goons screwed up, and Scream: “No More.”
‘Patriotic’ Penta-goons –their pencil-pushers and political pischers (sorry, lol) put the squeeze on Congress/our money, year after years. They got bases –plants –suppliers –contractors in EVERY state to “prevent” Congress members from ‘straying’ from Their bottom-less paycheck ‘reservation.’
“Their” obscene Budget MUST get slashed $100 Billion now, $100 billion next year –every year until: they are the size WE can afford, actually need —NOT “defense industry”-wanted size. Industrial military complex: making America weak –killing America.
NO MORE “supplemental” budget so Nobody knows REAL total Penta-goons suck out of our economy –out of us.
Gravy train: pulls into station, lays over until they get the message, get realistic. How realistic? The people they are fighting in Afghanistan: use crude cheap IUDs hand-shoved into sandy roads –blow up trucks -tanks -convoys -military with “hardware” costs no more than ten-buck bill at a hardware store.
Penta-goons fighting that on billion-buck a week budget –with bloated equipment-cost, FOR-PROFIT contractors. –That’s NOT counting actual $9 Billion American dollars shipped they actually LOST –the $18 BILLION American money shipped -handed out to locals, no receipt by rep of last White House occupant. ENOUGH.
We HAVE to cut our expenses –to match our income. We could cut food stamps -education -payment to disabled, retired –or dump what we DON’T need: Penta-goon’s budget. We could wait –till no one loans us any more money -we’re desperate –or we could slash it NOW.
Producers, Investors, Speculators –looking at Japan’s losses -future need for lumber, steel, fuel, food, etc., are making ‘bets’ –speculating, which way various markets -prices go. Speculation –changes the price –of all, to all.
Commodities –cotton, cocoa, beef, sugar, wheat –soybeans –oil –price of gas, trade daily on US Commodity exchange. Example: coffee beans cost $168 last year, but speculators have driven price to $267, by yesterday. Hence, though US economy has zero inflation: that cuppa joe will cost You more; that ‘bargain’ burger costing more to produce, price passed on to You. –Increases passed on to those who cannot pay more, hence riots in Middle east.
Market Should –used to work: those connected to actual commodity production, farmers -granaries -shippers, etc, bought/sold options to protect future price/hedge against Future outcome.
But now: Wall Street weasels, many bloated with cash reaped off Bank Bailout, shoving money into commodity exchange, speculating to make even more dough.
What does it “cost” to speculate?
Investors: allowed to take a position with only 10%. Remedy –to protect commodity price?
President Obama: should –demand regulators get Funded –DO their job AND call for change in commodity market.
One remedy –to keep the market ‘free’ –fair –flowing, Pres. Obama could, possibly, call for a two-tier market.
Tier One: for commodity producers –continue to put up only 10% to take a futures position.
Tier Two: for non-producers, those investing -speculating in the market –be forced to put up 100% cash, and no more margin, to take a position. Then: require new high tax on profit; no tax deduction on losses.
Now: speculators heavily invested in commodities, and in stock market, their “income”? While we, 98% of Americans, sofa-dive for coin to pay for gas, groceries –Middle easterners rioting over price of wheat, fruit, veg –food: wealthy speculators, earning most of their income in the market, pay less tax than You -anyone; their profits –income, taxed at only 15%.
You can whine about prices for food –clothing –gas to family, friends or: You can make a Difference —Write to Pres. Obama –to your reps in Congress.
Demand Commodity Market controls be enforced –speculators get no more margin –charged, taxed more.
If they Don’t hear from You:
President, Congress reps WILL assume you’re ‘fine’ with soaring costs -gas price –no tax or curbs on speculators, do nothing.
Sorry, but Plus 4 –ocean orgy…end
I read about the quake
only minutes after it happened, my First thought: the world has asked, begged –demanded Japanese stop killing whales –clubbing dolphins –removing all tuna.
As I watched the ensuing tsunami sweep fishing boats into streets -bridges -rubble, I knew: they would have NO boats to destroy sea creatures.
If you’re a Baby Boomer you may remember –how Yellow fin tuna tasted, how delish, when you were a child…. Now tuna population so depleted: at risk –entire species disappearing –near-extinct thanks to Japanese fishing methods -thanks to sushi.
Japanese fishermen: kill unwanted fish getting/netting tuna –plus remove too many tuna.
But Now: left Alone fish have strong chance to survive –reproduce –escape. It’s daVine Remedy –for sea life.
Sorry, but devastation in Japan: a Plus for sea creatures….
Organic -creative -wise —daVine remedy for taking far too much from the sea… now not able to take ANY…. Nature… taking revenge… balance.
daVine Remedy –to protect wild fish –Help those helping the sea: send donation to Green Peace —Heal the Bay –your favorite environmental non-profit.
daVine Remedy –to help suffering Japanese?
I wouldn’t trust Red Cross to hold my lunch. –You forgot what they did with 9/11 donations? They bought office supplies -furniture and bonused themselves. When they learned their blood —AIDS-tainted —refused to stop supply –or even test. Women in childbirth, hemophiliacs, surgery patients –killed by Red Cross blood. After 1994 Northridge earthquake newly homeless ‘Got’: no motel vouchers -grocery -gas -clothes vouchers -bus tokens -help -Red Cross Indifference. I know: I –thousands asked. Salvation Army did the heavy lifting, Red Cross: refused.
Red Cross: is a For-profit Business, keeps as much as possible. If you send donation to them “for” Japanese survivors: you have SHORT memory and, sorry, no brains.
Donate to Japanese relief–
the hottest scam going. DO NOT respond in ANY way to ANY message you receive. Click on a ‘donate’ link: you’ll get virus -Trojan horse -ripped off –bank account wiped out.
For any org: ask HOW they will get the money to Japanese government -people –get Details, verify to determine legitimacy.

Are YOU smarter than Japanese?
Japanese: quake-hardened people, yet no personal emergency kit –now: waiting in 14-hour lines –hoping for “ten items only” –from scarce stores. ACTUALLY assemble –your own personal get-outta-trouble kit, find here:
usgov kit list
make your own kit –SF Chronicle
Or You can hide under the covers–
—Don’t assemble supplies: after disaster –fire, flood, tornado, quake, hurricane, explosion –walk around begging for help, IF You can walk. But, duh, If everyone did that: we’d all die.
daVine remedy –Get a clue:
