With the Kind Assistance of Thomas Paine

February 9, 1737 [O.S. January 29, 1736] - June 8, 1809

The Bible is a book that has been read more and examined less than any book that ever existed. [The Theological Works of Thomas Paine]

Vivian Norris at the Huffington Post has also noticed the lack of information on the true state of affairs at Fukushima Daiichi.
From her post today:

There is something extremely disturbing going on and having lived through the media blackout in France back in April and early May 1986 [Chernobyl Time for you kids out there], and speaking to doctors who are deeply concerned by the dramatic increase in cancers appearing at very young ages, it is obvious that information is being held back. We are still told not to eat mushrooms and truffles from parts of Europe, not wild boar and reindeer from Germany and Finland 25 years later.

Vivian recommends (also cited and recommended on this blog) for honest information on the situation from nuclear experts such as Arne Gundersen. She further details stonewalling by officials in Japan.
Highly recommended.

Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistant that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

MIT's The Physics arXiv Blog tells us today that chain reactions continued despite shutdowns at Fukushima Daiichi in a  self explanatory post titled  "Chain Reactions Reignited At Fukushima After Tsunami, Says New Study Radioactive byproducts indicate that nuclear chain reactions must have been burning at the damaged nuclear reactors long after the disaster unfolded"

Today, Tetsuo Matsui at the University of Tokyo, says the limited data from Fukushima indicates that nuclear chain reactions must have reignited at Fuksuhima up to 12 days after the accident.
Matsui says the evidence comes from measurements of the ratio of cesium-137 and iodine-131 at several points around the facility and in the seawater nearby. He has calculated what the starting ratio must have been by assuming the reactors had been operating for between 7 and 12 months.
He says the ratios from drains at reactors 1 and 3 at Fukushima are consistent with the nuclear reactions having terminated at the time of the earthquake.
However, the data from the drain near reactor 2 and from the cooling pond at reactor 4, where spent fuel rods are stored, indicate that the reactions must have been burning much later.

"The reformation was preceded by the discovery of America, as if the Almighty graciously meant to open a sanctuary to the persecuted in future years, when home should afford neither friendship nor safety." - Common Sense, January 10, 1776

Over and over in what my active imagination appears to be almost a conspiratorial enterprise we are being reassured by the local press in the United States with similar phraseology like this example drawn from of Bloomington, Illinois.  

A nuclear radiation incident similar to the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that crippled the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in northeastern Japan is unlikely to happen at the Clinton nuclear plant, say Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials.
"All nuclear power plants are designed to handle the most severe, natural phenomenons such as earthquakes, flooding, tornadoes and things of that nature," said NRC public affairs spokesman Prema Chandrathil at a recent open house in Clinton. "But we will continue to evaluate such incidents as they had in Japan and see how they relate to our plants and make any changes if necessary."

No my friends, the Clinton plant will have its own inimitable and unique problems as happens in every nuclear disaster. And its nuclear problems will be cited  as not being possible anywhere else. Each nuclear plant in the United States is telling us that an accident such as happened at Fukushima Daiichi is unlikely. 
But do they say that any accident is unlikely? 

"It is of the utmost danger to society to make it (religion) a party in political disputes." - Common Sense, January 10, 1776

Read the story of Angelo "Doogie" Golatt, a minister who specialized in working with developmentally disabled youths and allegedly abused them sexually wherever he went. Religion is the perfect mask for evil. 

"Not all the treasures of the world, so far as I believe, could have induced me to support an offensive war, for I think it murder; but if a thief breaks into my house, burns and destroys my property, and kills or threatens to kill me, or those that are in it, and to "bind me in all cases whatsoever" to his absolute will, am I to suffer it?" - The American Crisis, No. 1, December 19, 1776

It's so bloody heart warming to see that the Wheeling Intelligencer is still banging the war drums to destroy people who are simply defending their own land against foreign incursion as they have done for thousands of years. There are enemies everywhere. And we shall keep making them as long as we send American soldiers half way around the world to kill tribesman on their own turf. 

"If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace." - The American Crisis, No. 1, December 19, 1776

The 14th Dalai Lama spoke at the University of Minnesota last night. 

"Compassion is the key factor for good health. ... It is not money or materialistic concerns, it is compassion and also education," he said. "If you do bad things for people, you get negative consequences. But if you do good things for people, you get good consequences."
"Use this for your own well-being," he urged.
In recognition of Mother's Day, the Dalai Lama lauded mothers for providing the affection and warmth people need to develop a compassionate society.
"My mother (was) so kind to me when I was young — I was the youngest of the children — that she really spoiled me," he said with a laugh. With the influence of his mother, he felt "deep inside, I am much calmer."

Tom's Death Mask
Thomas Paine died reviled and abandoned by both those in whom he had once generated conservative hatred and those in whom he inspired the spirit of revolution. 

"Thomas Paine had passed the legendary limit of life. One by one most of his old friends and acquaintances had deserted him. Maligned on every side, execrated, shunned and abhorred – his virtues denounced as vices – his services forgotten – his character blackened, he preserved the poise and balance of his soul. He was a victim of the people, but his convictions remained unshaken. He was still a soldier in the army of freedom, and still tried to enlighten and civilize those who were impatiently waiting for his death. Even those who loved their enemies hated him, their friend – the friend of the whole world – with all their hearts. On the 8th of June, 1809, death came – Death, almost his only friend. At his funeral no pomp, no pageantry, no civic procession, no military display. In a carriage, a woman and her son who had lived on the bounty of the dead – on horseback, a Quaker, the humanity of whose heart dominated the creed of his head – and, following on foot, two negroes filled with gratitude – constituted the funeral cortege of Thomas Paine." -Robert G. Ingersoll
