Radiation warnings send mobs of shoppers into stores, start hasty evacuations in Tokyo

Radiation warnings and a gentle but potentially deadly wind blowing towards Tokyo from the general direction of the melting-down Japanese nuclear power plants has caused panic shopping and hasty evacuations in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

The line for the door was getting crowded as major corporations, foreign embassies, and visiting tourists hustled to get out of dodge before the 21st Century’s version of Godzilla got to the subways of Tokyo.

Everyone in Japan is “on the Beach” now. This is getting brutal.

One area of consensus, this accident has moved past Three Mile Island in the press’ opinion. It’s now the “worst accident since Chernobyl”. Nice. That’s encouraging.

The situation is quickly getting out of control and will be soon impacting the global environment and economy in ways we can hardly imagine from our current vantage point.

Fasten your seatbelts. And get some iodine pills.

UPDATE: New Reports from on the ground in Tokyo.

Kill Web

Dunno ’bout you, but Kill Web sounds to me like A.) a new James Bond movie title, B.) a Spiderman-esque hero who actually webs the criminals, but then injects them with poison and later eats their liquified remains, or C.) the code name for some nasty-@$$ 1st Amendment-stomping government initiative.

For those of you playing along with us at home, the correct answer for “What is a Kill Web?” seems to be “C” but we’ll have to get back to you on A & B after we pitch them to some studio heads that we know.

Now I’m sure that all the Tea Party people who are OH SO concerned with their rights under Herr Obama must remember when the Bush Administration was going about its Eves-dropping-without-a-warrant festivities in those heady, post 9/11 days? Surely this will make them as angry as healthcare for poor people… yes? Hello? Any takers? This is Kill Web we’re talking about here…

Well, according to an ex-employee, AT&T was neck-deep in bed with the NSA, enabling it to monitor and record ALL web-traffic. Everything. All those hours you spent in chat-rooms and porn sites? The government knows about it… or at least has the records.

Mark Klein was an AT&T employee for more than 20 years and says that he personally worked in one of these capture-rooms where internet traffic was divided into two streams: the normal, everyday stream, and a duplicate stream that the government recorded in these “secret rooms.” Kepp in mind, Mark isn’t talking about just AT&T internet traffic… he’s talking about ALL internet traffic by ALL providers. The government knows about your Grandmother’s obsession with Live Journal. Not only that, but AT&T helped supply the NSA with all phone-traffic as well.

This is the reason he decided to come forward, as intense review and scrutiny on the Bush-era practices begins to reveal the real size and true scope of this Constitution-raping practice. Mark Klein is testifying in hopes that Congress will reject extending immunity to telecommunications companies that willingly went along with the fascist practice. there are almost 40 lawsuits that would be torpedoed if telecomm companies got that kind of literal “get out of jail free” pass.

Congress, reject immunity for criminals, please. America is about Freedom and these companies willingly made a mockery out of it in return for favors from a criminal government. Don’t let Kill Web win…
