It’s A Secret…

9 Jun

Image result for it's a secret

Shhhhhhh… Because here in 21st century America if it has to do with our government…our government doesn’t want to talk about it. Oh they’re investigating it, whatever “it” may be… but whatever it is that they are finding is too delicate for “we the people” to know about. I suppose we might get upset and decide not to go shopping, which I think has become the American citizen’s only national duty. (and use a credit card please, while doing so)

Other than that we are to be left in the fog of disputed facts and testimonies, various and sundry leaks and tweets and obligatory 5th amendment pleas…and lets not forget the distorted and dark glassed perspectives of opposing political parties and their networked counterparts.

What’s going on inside America’s hallowed halls of government these days? Oh we can talk about it. We just can’t say anything with certainty. No absolutes please. It’s under investigation so we’ll get back to you on that as soon as it’s determined whether or not it’s appropriate to discuss in public.

We’ve ascertained some facts and we’re even following up on some appropriate suspicions. We’ve even gathered some information both dubious and not…so we’ll get back to you on that after our intelligence committees finish their…committeeing? Is that a word?

We’ll investigate and we’ll let you know…

In the mean time, and as Russian President, Putin, would say, “Don’t worry. Be happy!”

 

No News is Bad News

Two things that we should know that we probably don’t want to hear…and this is not good news.

1. The Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan that exploded and melted down 3 of its 6 nuclear reactors released 168 times the radiation that the atomic bomb in Hiroshima unleashed in 1945.

2. In December of 2013 the Japanese Parliament passed a State Secrets Law.  The penalties for violators include: 10 years in prison for civil servants who leak classified information. The law covers defense, diplomacy, counter-terrorism and counterintelligence. But it also empowers bureaucrats to lock away documents for up to 60 years.

And here are 2 more things that you probably don’t want to know:

1. The Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission found the nuclear disaster was “man-made” and that its direct causes were all foreseeable.

2. Japan has 53 other nuclear reactors, all of which have since been suspended or shut down… however, Japan’s new energy plan for 2014 calls nuclear power “the country’s most important power source”. It also recommends that the government begin the re-opening of nuclear plants, aiming for “a realistic and balanced energy structure”…but

Shhhhhhhhhhhh…Don’t tell anyone.
