    The pic of the man protesting and the videos and images of animals suffering break my heart also. The video of the cows dying of thirst and hunger did me in, I want to see no more. 🙁

    TPTB have made money more important than life, and unfortunately, we have little or no control to change their business as usual agenda.:(

    I suggest we all pitch in and buy ‘jokes’ a one way ticket to Fuki and he can wander around the different reactors preaching his ‘safe sermon’.

    Speaking of which, why hasn’t ‘jokes’
    volunteered to go over and help Tempco since he believes it is all hogwash, one wonders.

    We would probably all rather use the bux to help the people of Japan. They sure don’t need ‘help’ from the likes of him, they have’safe’ Plutonium and Tempco to fight.

    For the life of me, I never will understand why people like that go to anti-boards and post bull against their beliefs. Being a shill no doubt pays better than I imagined. 🙁

    I’m completely on overload of horrid info. Pardon my sardonic remarks, I can’t seen to keep my emotions out of the picture. TOO much happening all at the same time.
