25 comments to Gundersen: Essentially U.S. Congress is totally co-opted by nuclear industry — Host: Influence is hair-raising (VIDEO)
Oh, come on, who doesn't own a large slice of American government? Or any government, for that matter? This isn't groundbreaking news.
I'm just glad that the Fuku radiation doesn't 'discriminate' in its' entry points. All those bought and paid for politicians are going to watch their families die horrible deaths from it, and will know they are all responsible.
In the mean time, we are being warned about the nuclear weapons of Iran and the right of Israel to protect itself by the same elected and paid off American leaders. But, it is still considered a "democratic" system of government, so we will all sicken and die together…maybe. Do these leaders have a plan to save themselves and their loved ones?
No. We've all been dosed, and now it's a race to the finish. We're all in this together. Even if they went into their underground evacuation caverns, they're just taking their poisoned bodies with them. That's why I tell people there's no need for a 'revolution' of any kind. All the ones they want to 'revolt' against are going to go anyway, so just sit back and let Nature take its' course.
Sort of Gandhi's ideas mixed with a realistic fatalism, I suppose.
Make no mistake – the Fuku radiation is an 'equal opportunity destroyer'. The 'Wrath of Kali'.
that was to be their game Heart. Now, it's up-in the air (couldn't resist). And yes, this has been (an ongoing) intelligence test; to wit, humans are not necessarily condemned for the actions of a few. All of you are equally influential in how it all goes. Just be constructive in your analysis…
@Aftershock…Thank your for thoughts…I don't consider awareness of the necessity..that humanity needs to take giant leaps in understanding commonality ..cohesion as a species.. etc..a destructive concept.
It all begins with self-awareness.
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” – H. L. Mencken
I stumbled on that today, Michele – it seems to fit your theme well.
So sad to see the demise of "we the people". Up here they are pushing a bitumen pipeline through my pristine province of British Columbia. Same thing, politically, poison foisted on the people. You follow the comments on CBC and aside from the odd shill, nobody wants it. What democracy? Still it would be nice to see a three party system in the U S of A. God Bless
I just give my eye teeth for better informed senators and congressmen who KNOW something about technology and basics such as farming or manufacturing or business or even medicine. That's what we are missing. Right now we have political scientists, media mongols, and permanent hanging "chads" in charge. No "get it done", just "smile be happy." HUMMMM where have we heard THAT phase before?
The way to get better reps, is to vote for them, and NOT waste your vote on the dualopoly, which are both owned by corporations.
The Green Party exists, and does not allow 'donations' from any corporation to any of it's reps.
This is how nuclear was abolished in Germany. People voted Green Party, and it won the majority vote.
The answers are always there, but people refuse to open their eyes, or hear. Many refuse to vote for what they really want, which is a sustainable future. A sustainable future is offered by the Green Party.
Guess what? The same situation exists in Japan. A Green party is being born there, for the same reasons. Both parties there are also 'owned' by corporations, including TEPCO.
The anti nuclear folks in Japan are forming and will hopefully vote for Green party candidates.
Win Congress via the Green Party. Sign up legislators who will sign a pledge not to accept big money donations. Then, legislate the money out of politics. Money is NOT speech, regardless of what those silly men in the Supreme Court believe. For now, we have the best government money can buy.
(To believe that good government is one that only serves the monied interests is to put the fox in charge of the hen house.)
You are right. I wonder what happened for him as he tried to escalate it on the US Govt side? I bet it all got jammed up on him – leaving it hanging. You would think there would be some kind of official response on the matter as he tries to get US to help. Did they just ignore his cry for assistance?
