Title: Coming Home; A Mayor’s Quest to Revive a Fukushima Village
Source: NHK Documentary
Author: MissingSky101
Date: Dec 22, 2012

Kawauchi Mayor Yuko Endo: Well we will make sure decontamination is safe every step of the way. Even when it rains, I promise you nothing will seep out.

Resident: I don’t believe in promises. Mr. Mayor you can’t promise me anything. We agreed to the nuclear plant after Tepco promised it would be safe. Look at what happened. Not even 40 years after it was built, the plant spewed out something invisible across Japan. Don’t you dare make promises.

Endo: Well safety will be our top priority while we proceed with the work to be sure the nuclear accident…

Resident: Enough already. I don’t want to listen anymore. You’re wasting my time.

      this should come as no surprise rambojim. I was listening to a great Rense-radio last Friday, where he was interviewing a Japanese journalist who explained that Japan is completely under the control of armed organized crime. He went on to say, these gangs murder – under the directive of higher-ups – anyone who rocks the boat.

      This is the kind of justice you can expect with a disarmed citizenry…

        How much is achieved when the stakes are raised? I think that there would be a lot more dead citizens if everyone was armed.

          Really? You ever seen the animated movie bugs life? It explains the concept in terms a 2 year old can understand. I highly recommend it.

          Possibly a lot more dead citizens, but the living will be free. When any government looses touch with the people it was formed to represent, and begins to commit brutalities on the people who they have sworn to protect, it is no longer an effective form of government and needs to be changed.

                I'll leave this argument, to those who risked their lives and freedom to give us our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

                Those who beat their swords into plowshares usually end up plowing for those who didn’t.
                — Ben Franklin

                Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property… Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
                –Thomas Paine

                A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.
                – George Washington

                If you're not prepared to accept the responsibility inherit in being free, then you have no right taking advantage of any-other that springs forth from those rights.

                    PavewayIII – Can you please clarify what you mean by labeling Ben Franklin, Thomas Paine, and George Washington as *terrorists*?
                    The only way the word *terrorists* could be associated with them is from the perspective of King George III of England and his subjects. Who cares what they thought! They were our (U.S. Americans)enemy.
                    George Washington was the greatest American leader of all time and we owe him our freedom. Ben Franklin's negotiations with the French enabled Washington to gain sea power which was a crucial element to our winning the decisive battle at Yorktown Virginia. Cornwallis was unable to escape by sea. Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" rallied Americans to the idea of American independence and Washington read Paine's publication "The American Crisis" to persuade Soldiers' who's tour of duty were about to end to remain in the Army. This was crucial to our maintaining the army at that trying time. Those 3 Americans were, from our perspectives, heroes. While he actually was originally an American hero, Benedict Arnold turned traitor and would be a more appropriate choice if one needed to choose a *terrorist* from the revolutionary period (though he really was not a terrorist just a self-serving traitor with a slimmy wife who slept with the enemy.)

                      Aftershock, thanks for your comments. I liked your post as well by the way. Although I have been reading enenews just about every day since April, 2011, I actually registered to the site 2 days ago to make that post. I cannot see how someone could not treat all of those who have honorably served our country and in war, particularly the founding fathers, with the utmost respect. I think sarcasm is inappropriate where that kind of respect is deserved.

                      appreciate your sentiments bsgcic. And as all humans are susceptible to 'clay feet', it isn't too difficult for anyone to find fault in the best of us. I for one, would rather look upon each individuals better side. So, like you, I revere our nation's forefathers.

                      Just know that from my observations, PavewayIII is truly brilliant and an invaluable addition to this forum. For such reason, I can accept his (presumed) sarcasm on any subject matter…

                    In civilian life, more people are killed by firearm accidents than any other firearm related deaths. If everyone had a gun, more people would die from carelessness than if no one had guns. Suicide by gunshot is the second highest cause of firearm related deaths. All philosophies and sentiments aside, guns are more dangerous to their owners and their families than to anyone else.

                      Think I read somewhere that 10 times the deaths attributed to firearms on the Oregon-California Trails were caused by accidents than all other causes combined.. Yes, they needed guns then for manifold reasons…

                      But, do we need them today??? Especially, handguns which normally do not have a manifold of uses for their owners today – and assault weapons too… They are just the killers of the innocent…

                      The best resistance weapon will be a high powered hunting rifle.. The one weapon no one is trying to take away or control… Funny, isn't it…

                      America, the country I live in is free. It is free because of guns. The military is made up of civilians who are trained to use weapons. The cities with the gun laws have the highest rate of gun crimes. The countries that have gun bans have the highest rate of gun crimes or there has been no significant difference since the gun laws went into effect on gun crimes. There will always be a market for weapons. Always. History has proven this over and over again. A person with intent will do what he needs to do or she needs to do period. Whether it be with a gun, sticks, or rocks.

        Even though I am 100% against gun control as well as the "ON-TOPIC" issues and out of control criminals who would become the most powerful & disgusting dictatorship that could EVER be imaginable if the USA citizenry was ever disarmed by force because of a handful of scumbags foul misdeeds? Will the people I'm now learning of here be a part of the force that storm peoples homes when they refuse to comply with orders to turn in weapons that otherwise smart people look very stupid to me now when they suggest they're also "experts" on firearms and "what" should be allowed for "which" sport or hunting event?! I've hunted with handguns and also found "SEMI-AUTOMATIC SPORTING RIFLES" suit themselves well for ANY firearms use whether defensive,hunting or target shooting that I don't appreciate someone telling me I shouldn't or even more offensive that they'd imply the presence of any item with the possibility of lethality via "accident" or the sudden impulse to murder children with it" makes me sick since I've never even thought of harming someone with ANY kind of firearm unless I was called on to defend what I care about!~but I won't waste much more time on a site that would ban religion but allow an even more sensitive & inflammatory issue that WOULD include using foreign,UN troops to perform the raids and harm inflicted on US citizens since there won't be enough WILLING members of police or US military to pull it off anyway!BAN O.T.

        so what if they were armed?

        They have geiger counters now, said counters are beeping furiously, telling people to leave immediately – People don't leave.

        What do you think they'd do with guns? Other then shoot themselves I mean.

      It has nothing to do with his intelligence or morals. He is the type of psychopath likely to be successful in Japanese politics. The Japanese government and political parties are dominated by layers of psychopathic organizations run by equally psychopathic leaders.

      The Japanese people do exactly what Americans do: vote for candidates that seem to care most about them. The candidates don't care about anyone – they lack the ability to feel any human empathy whatsoever. They're just very good at sensing and mimicking other healthy people's empathetic words and behaviors. They appear to care about everyone because that's what they do.

        Your description reminds me of that poster here with some nuclear.com spouting how nuke is Gods whatever, I mean, there are some people who are just different. They act like they care when they really don't. Like at this stage we should just agree with that guy and jump in and radiate everything else? They don't even have a reasonable contingency plan for operations and spent storage. It would take a psychopath to believe more of the same is a recipe for either business success OR good living. I felt like that poster TRULY took God`s name in vain by tying his shit on the Heavens. Gimme a break!

          Hi Anthony, I do recall that post, although I read it as a typo and thought the intended word was 'good'.

          I agree with what you say, but when I read it I thought no one would be that high brow of themselves and what they do. At least, for the benefit of the doubt.

          Of course, if I'm wrong, I hear what you're saying about anyone who may consider themselves so high and mighty.

Look at every city that has no guns crime is on the rise like Chicago,and Detroit. Look at AZ little crime cause people all carry guns. If you are a criminal you rob defenseless people not armed people. Markww
