I have no doubt that the President is having a great time on the beach in Rio, but that photo does not look right. It really looks to me like the head was placed on a different body. I can't put my finger on why exactly, maybe its the heavy shadowing around the head as opposed to anywhere else, but it just looks fake to me.

On Topic: We have been told before to not worry and those who listened to the Government eventually found out the Government was wrong, and the crazy conspiracy nuts were right...again. Does anyone else remember after 9/11 how Christie Whitman from the EPA said that the air in Lower Manhattan was safe to breathe and posed no health risk at all? For her exact words you can forward this video to 0:28

So when the Government was caught red handed lying and people were clearly getting sick, how did they spin it?

Yes you heard her correctly, she said the air was ok in Lower Manhattan but she did not say it was safe on "the pile". Just where was "the pile" located? Lower Manhattan!! It is the WTC rubble!

Sorry but Obama telling me all is well, makes me even more guarded and cautious.

I wasn't worried... until my government tells me not to prepare.
So Potassium Iodide has been taken off store shelves for "safety reasons" and we are told NOT to prepare. what is the harm in preparing. I buy band aides bandages, disinfectant, rubbing alcohol, and other things to prepare for an emergency right? This is WHY the Iodide tablets have been available. So people can prepare in the event of an unexpected nuclear emergency. So why would they suddenly tell us not to?

Something isn't right.

I never wanted to join the (Our government wants us dead)

It could be that they feel people will panic... well, to late.

Um.. why not tell people to stay indoors? Radiation exposure is 1/10th the amount you would receive outside. Fill your tub with water encase supply is compromised by radiation or infrastructure collapse. Bring potted plants inside. Tape doors and windows. If sustained high level radiation is expected turn off A/C to prevent coolant from transporting radiation inside. Remember the longer you can stay inside the better. Radiation levels will drop low enough for you to evacuate the area in a few weeks to months. Keep watching what's going on. Radiation will continue to travel in waves across the Pacific until the reactors are capped.

Why not tell us? Because we can't afford to lose one dollars of productivity now that we are completely bankrupt. The coffers of America ran dry a couple days ago. Welcome to Corporation Earth.

On a side note anyone watching China Syndrome? I've been saying this since early on... they lost the reactor almost instantly. Tell me how you maintain control without water? It's just been a waiting game to see if they could control the pools. They couldn't and they may very well burn for over 100 days with nothing that can be done.

It's going to take millions of lives to contain this thing but it must be done. Send them in now!

You know if they really wanted to keep us in the dark,they would shut this
site down and put up a fake site in it's place to disinform us all.
Or maybe they have already done that.

I hate to admit it but I am now skeptical of any sound uttered by anyone of higher authority than myself. I have a scientific mind and logic says that there is not one reliable source because sh#t falls down and all info starts at the top. This whole thing will play out no matter what we do but if the only way we find out how bad it is in Japan is when people start dying I'm going to say it's time to tear it all down and start again.

Boy, is this an understatement. listen too us, the same ones who hire crooked CEO's to run washington? the same ones who outsourced our jobs overseas? the same ones who told us the econmy is getting better..but only allowed less than salary jobs available? the same ones who cost us tax money by sending whords of it overseas and ddont do a dman thing for us at any socail or economic level?
no thats ok ide rather be prepaired on my own, which is more in the truthful area anyways in todays america...your all on yuor own now*

Exactly. Everyone can be proven to have lied substantially at one point.

So, how many other world leaders have gone to the Southern Hemisphere?

I personally am appalled at how worried some Americans are over themselves when the radiation is exponentially more of a threat to Japan and much, much, much of a threat to Russia and some other nations than it will ever be to the United States.

Yet you have people buying iodine tablets in SoCal. >_>

I am no nuclear physicist but I know enough to know this, even if things get quite a bit worse, poses little to no threat to the United States. That is the scientific reality at this point.

Keep Japan in your thoughts!

I am perplexed to find that you don't have the gift of thinking outside of the box
in terms of the what if's and IF the what's the Government IS telling us IS the truth (or not) ?

Buying Iodine is called BEING PREPARED, which is incumbent upon all people.

Since you claim to know about nuclear reactors, fission and about fallout I ask you this:

Do you know with absolute certainty that this disaster will *NEVER* hit the west coast (because it already has) -albeit in low and purported inconsequential doses???

If you say yes: you're outed as a disinfo apologist. Why? Simple:

YOU DO NOT KNOW the exact extent of this disaster WILL have because it is
organically and exponentially growing in real time.

If you say no: then explain under WHAT conditions would have to be met in order
to facilitate buying tablets, barricading and food storage as legitimate preparation measures???

I would love an explanation.

really? all those leaders from all those countries from all those time periods? all of them related? you realise many other non powerful people are also related to them? what about the Ghengis line? they'll find it in a european middle class guy. not tony blair. perhaps we have different views on time and influence. i suppose all those coups were family squabbles. we're all related, we're all aliens bcz of the fact that we live on a plnet in space. the world is messed bcz people who are lazy or fanatical put people who are crazy or incompetent in power. govt offices are (as they have ALWAYS been) a mirror image of the people.
in north america we are devious and self serving, our govt's are devious and self serving. in africa the people are killing each other at very high rates, (screw research, just ask one!) their leaders kill at very high rates. maybe the USA govt did cause 911 but the the people in rwanda and cambodia and in sudan today, they are for sure killing in high numbers. no secrets,no hidden bases...straight up butchery.

Check this idiocy from Fox News:

'Radiation is good for you,' says Ann Coulter as she weighs in on Japan's nuclear crisis

Eh? Is this a blonde joke?

‘There is a growing body of evidence that radiation in excess of what the government says are the minimum amounts we should be exposed to are actually good for you and reduce cases of cancer,’ she told Fox News TV host Bill O’Reilly.

This must be a dumb blonde joke! If not it must be aimed at the Stupid's of American society!! From the Stupids at Fox News to the Stupid Sheeple!!

So, he references the official advice of a National Agency, and you blame him for it?

Yeah! He sholda jumped up and down and shouted RUN FOR THE HILLS!!! Panic! Be as fearful as you can! Buy stuff at the store you likely wont need!!!!!!

President Barack Obama said Thursday that harmful levels of radiation are not expected to reach the United States, "whether it's the West Coast, Hawaii, Alaska, or U.S. territories in the Pacific."

"Let me repeat that," the president said. "We do not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach the West Coast, Hawaii, Alaska, or U.S. territories in the Pacific. That is the judgment of our Nuclear Regulatory Commission and many other experts."

According to a press release from the White House, Obama continued: "Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and public health experts do not recommend that people in the United States take precautionary measures beyond staying informed. And going forward, we will continue to keep the American people fully updated — because I believe that you must know what I know as President."

Oh obama said so huh ? Well that's a great relief.
2nd line

posted on Mar, 22 2011 @ 04:02 PM
why should obama or the congressional leaders of america worry about radiation?

oh they all have hundreds of fallout shelters such as greenbrier, and mount weather etc.

no no americans you half to remember this is the us its not switzerland where every single home in that country is mandated by law to have a fallout shelter built when its constructed and america isnt the russia where there were hundereds if not thousands of public shelters that were built during the cold war,

THIS IS AMERICA the liberals and obama were elected to save you all THEY ARE the government they are here to help us all in out time of need!!!!!

katrina comes to mind and thats a natural disaster and the many other instances in our history..

like its been said when the government tells you no no there's no problem you run like hell away from the situation.

for the people who are called survivalists or preppers or the people who prepare for any shtf scenario they are all aready 10 steps ahead of your mother and father fascist government they don't want you to prepare because the government is here to save you remember checkout youtube to see how big the "preppers" have become.

the thing is about radiation is radiation is around all the time without it we would die but how much ie dosage or ingestion will kill but what noone of the news or obama is talking about is the cummulative effect.

take your own life in your own to hands and tell the government to beggar off the only person who can save your own lives is you.

hope for the best prepare for the worst anything can happen in todays world and only fools listen to obama and the us federal government and fema.

OK, I do not live in the US, but I actually laughed out loud at the title to this post.

Here in the UK; this morning on the news, they were talking about this and saying there really wasn't any need (in the UK) to get iodine, but if you are worried then contact x or y. They also talked about iodine being in short supply in the US (and also in UK).

Here, it was mostly to do with people who were intending to travel to Japan, but there was some content about people not intending to travel there, and most of it was saying: if you intend to go there, contact x people, if you don't, don't worry. But that was just for us in UK. They said nothing about other places in the world and they pretty much glossed over if this advice was good for people outside of the UK.

Personally, I do not understand any kind of advice that would say not to take precautions... Even if the possibility is remote, they do not know the full situation at Fukushima, or how much radiation has been released.

I, personally, would advise you to take every necessary step to ensure your safety. As the saying goes, better safe than sorry.

Just be aware that iodine, whilst it may protect you from radiation, is not good for your body in the long term. Only take it if you are sure that there is a risk to you from radiation.

Lol are'nt people suppose to be all mutated and suffering from radiation poison?

Basic science would say it have little to no impact on the us.

I think the usa just wants to feel included.
