There is so much disinformation out there it's diverting attention and help from the true crisis of the earthquake/tsunamic victims.

I'd sooner place my trust in internet posts from locals rather than believe a media based report.

Radiation from the pool at Unit 4 will destroy a video camera in a matter of minutes.

Liquid nitrogen would “explode” on contact with something at 100degrees C. That is to say it would evaporate so fast as to be a massive expulsion of gas. In addition hitting the hot rods with a cold spot may actually cause them to rupture - a very bad thing.

I believe that the primary containment on Unit 3 is breached and that there is very limited of no pumping ability left to the Unit. It is very possible that the vessel was breached and is leaking. There is some scuttlebutt among industry people that there was a common valve failure on three units at the plant - all of which are in primary cooling loops. And yes this is a Level 6 event.

Los Angeles live geiger counter readings. Note the live comments on the right side.

Link Here

So far radiation levels read consistently under 50. I saw a report recently that says the weather system out of Japan is carrying contamination northward towards Alaska, Arctic and Greenland

Historical readings average about 28 for Los Angeles. A moment ago I saw a reading of 65 on the LA geiger counter. To put this in perspective -- 100 is considered to be high.

Note: This is just a small sample from Santa Monica. It is not official. That single unit might be out of order. Then, again, local radiation levels may actually be going up.

LOL !

When the high rise concrete pump trucks get on site I will feel a lot better. They can pump water or concrete through same and the booms are remotely controlled with video. They can line the cabs with lead and coninuously pump water from the ocean into their hoppers.

When's that supposed to happen?

You’re construing Ex-Texan’s vulnerable and diligent caring as

“glee” over horror

is hideous, misguided, ignorant, cheeky, insulting and outrageous.

Ex-Texan is living on the very edge of borrowed time. He doesn’t need to bother with FR at all. He has local loved ones and other issues that could easily occupy his time and energies.

However, he has enough Christian caring, love and decency in spite of his own critical physical traumas to still bother trying to wake folks up and help us all navigate this horror show brought to us by satan, OThuga and all the other literally demonized goons on the world stage at the moment.

I think you owe him an apology.

You may not agree with his construction on reality as is your right. That doesn’t have to translate into smug assumptions about his emotions and motives involved.

It is clear you don’t know the man. You don’t know his heart.

And you CERTAINLY DON’T READ HIS MIND REMOTELY ACCURATELY.

GRRRR

Sorry, I call them as I see’em, know nothing about his personal situation, and am not sure why I should have been expected to.

And continuing “LOL”s on bad reports, and casting aside of any good ones, doesn’t leave a good impression.

I hope he gets better on any physical issues, and we’ll leave it at that.

INDEED.

Yet, it takes a balanced, but diligent NON-PERFECTIONISTIC approach to life,

to prevent such.

Perfectionism does NOT correlate well with success. They miss more critical small things than the non-perfectionists.

Fascinating.

27 Signs That the Nuclear Crisis in Japan Is Much Worse Than Either the Mainstream Media or the Japanese Government Have Been Telling Us

This excerpt especially caught my eye:

24 The president of France's nuclear safety authority says that this crisis is now almost as bad as Chernobyl was ....

"It's clear we are at Level 6, that's to say we're at a level in between what happened at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl."

But that item is only # 24. Please read the other three.

I'm still shaking my head about 600,000 spent fuel rods stored without containment . . .

I can feel from both US and Japanese press that they sense the worst is past and they need to start getting on to other stories quickly so people forget how ridiculous some of their reporting was getting.

I will never forget. Fox also jumped the shark when they should have been a voice of reason and calm. To report the supposed "both" sides of the issue was grossly irresponsible. There was no both sides of the issue.

Thanks for the post.

ABSOLUTELY INDEED.

And, such folks are trained—very well trained—to get in on the ground floor of such organizations . . . and ingratiate themselves to the hierarchy as very doctrinaire, kosher, true blue believers [conservatives, in this case] etc.

and to nudge . . . subtle bits here and there toward the globalist agenda and against their most effective opponents.

I got the full treatment of a very well ‘Company’ trained Taiwan agent when I served as Dean there. It was a fascinating if frustrating experience. Very very very slick operator. He even confessed Christianity and asked to be baptized. I pray it took in spite of his being on ‘a job.’

From FR’s earliest days there have been those SCREAMING bloody murder about the tin-foil hat ‘conspiracy theory nuts.’

. . . for some reason . . . there seem to have been fewer of them since OThuga took office.

I guess it’s a bit hard to scream ‘theory’ when the brazenly worst and most intense exibit “A” has become the anointed Marxist/Globalist King in the White House.

Ex-Texan issued repeated warnings relating to the sub-prime bubble

He was great, I loved this warning.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/996531/posts?page=7#7

I wonder how housing prices today compare to housing prices in October 2003?

This might be a good place to find out.

you on the other hand viciously stalked & attacked him foolishly & falsely declaring there was no inflated housing bubble, the U$D is fine, the Fed’s policies were fine (and you still state the same nonsense relating to Fed policy), and there would not be a market crash in 2008.

I don't remember saying those things. Maybe you have an actual thread where I did? Or maybe you'll just run away?

Obviously, like this one.

I have been saying this for two months here on FR. Many people have said I was nuts. But the housing bubble is just starting to break. I posted a comment two days ago warning that California may face a similar fate soon and that right now housing is at it tip-top peak. Again, people were telling me I was wrong.

EX was a bit premature on the peak of Cal real estate, but he noticed the preposterous runup, and the eventual crash before anyone else I know. He and I were high level bankers at
that time in the fall of 2003, and we both knew that a crash would ensue. Around mid 2006, we warned many FReepers to cease speculating in California and Nevada real estate, and to sell any spec real estate immediately. We were spot on, and we were mercilously flamed by the likes of you, and a few others, who no doubt, lost most if not all of their “investment” property.

Over the years, EX-TX has been right at least 90% of the time in his financial prognostications. Yours would fit nicely in a thimble ;-)
