Japan’s Nuclear Rescuers: ‘Inevitable Some of Them May Die Within Weeks’
Workers at the disaster-stricken Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan say they expect to die from radiation sickness as a result of their efforts to bring the reactors under control, the mother of one of the men tells Fox News.
“He told me they have accepted they will all probably die from radiation sickness in the short term or cancer in the long-term.”
Very heroic – we will see what happens.

Now is this because he took some heat for doing the NCAA Tournament Brackets, or because he throws like a wimp?
President Obama sits out Opening Day
“You know, a lot of folks focused on the fact that I filled out my bracket,” Obama said.
Watch Obama’s prior pitches. The 2009 pitch doesn’t show that the ball didn’t make it to the plate with Pujols positioned almost on top of the plate.

George Soros making a move to control food and grain production
Financier and progressive activist George Soros is formulating a move to control food and grain production by purchasing grain elevators in late March in several parts of the United States through his subsidiary company Gavilon Grain. With some purchases made on March 29th, Soros will become the third largest grain company behind Cargill, and Archer-Daniels Midland.
When food brokers consolidate into just a few large companies controlling the majority of a market, then prices can be set not by supply and demand, but by corporate decisions and manipulation of supply.
Details of the purchase is here. – Gavilon to buy Union Elevator PNW grain elevators
These grain elevators were purchased in Washington. They are the #1 exporter of U.S. wheat. Now Soros is in our food production. Not good for someone who wants to put America in its place.

Obama said that he was OK with gas prices being $4.00 a gallon back in 2008, but it happened too quickly. I guess a two year time frame is more acceptable for him.
Gasoline up 100% under Obama
According to the GasBuddy gasoline price tracking web site, the price of a gallon of regular gas was around $1.79 when Mr. Obama took office. Today the national average is $3.58.

On NBC, the missing story about parent company General Electric
It’s the kind of accountability journalism that makes readers raise an eyebrow, if it doesn’t raise their blood pressure first. General Electric Co., reported the New York Times last week, earned $14.2 billion in worldwide profits last year, including $5.1 billion in the United States — and paid exactly zero dollars in federal taxes.
During its Friday broadcast, “NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams” had no time to mention that America’s largest corporation had essentially avoided paying federal taxes in 2010. Or its Saturday, Sunday or Monday broadcasts, either.
Did NBC’s silence have anything to do with the fact that one of its parent companies is General Electric?
He cited a series of GE-related stories that NBC’s news division has underplayed over the years, from safety issues in GE-designed nuclear power plants to the dumping of hazardous chemicals into New York’s Hudson River by GE-owned plants.
More hiding the truth to protect themselves. Nothing new here… keep moving.

Unreported Soros Event Aims to Remake Entire Global Economy
On April 8, a group he’s funded with $50 million is holding a major economic conference and Soros’s goal for such an event is to “establish new international rules” and “reform the currency system.”
Soros wants a new ‘multilateral system,” or an economic system where America isn’t so dominant.
“Reorganizing the world order will need to extend beyond the financial system and involve the United Nations, especially membership of the Security Council,’ he wrote. ‘That process needs to be initiated by the US, but China and other developing countries ought to participate as equals.”
Soros emphasized that point, that this needs to be a global solution, making America one among many. “The rising powers must be present at the creation of this new system in order to ensure that they will be active supporters.”
…it isn’t just designed to change global economic rules. It also is designed to put America in its place – part of a multilateral world the way Soros wants it.

Hoo-boy – government needs to be removed from any health care or entitlement policies – otherwise this is where we go.
‘Entitled’ to chains
Judge Collyer allowed to stand three internal rules of the Social Security Administration that make receipt of Social Security retirement benefits contingent upon enrollment in Medicare. Plus, a person who withdraws from Medicare would not only have to give up Social Security retirement benefits, but repay all benefits previously received.
Indeed, all seniors now must enroll in Medicare, Part A, whether they want it or not. If they don’t, their Social Security retirement benefits will be taken from them.
All kinds of future ramifications involving ObamaCare may be in play here. The case is currently under appeal.
