Update 1: Something about Israel, yada yada, Obama tells them West Bank settlements illegal, yada yada yada.
"Will someone please take out the pliers and pinch me to see if this is all just a nightmare." If you have recently said this to yourself, you're not alone. As the world has gone from insane to surreal, we have to wonder what the future holds for those that are not even slightly aware of the world's current condition; there are more of these people than you think. While we are no longer shocked to see what we already knew months ago confirmed now, like Fukushima experiencing a full meltdown, or Greece being insolvent and two shakes of a lamb's tail away from restructuring (read: defaulting), we do wonder if those in charge of the world think we have two heads but share one half a radioactive brain.
For example, today we learn that nearly 3000 evacuees suffering from "stress and poor hygienic conditions" were rushed to hospitals in ambulances. Stress and poor hygienic conditions? Really?

Genius. We have to wonder if at least they know that open air nuclear fusion releases huge amounts of radiation? We can only hope, but we won't hold our breath.
If you needed any more reasons why rumors have been flying around that Japan wants to move its entire
Of course, you are not naive to the fact that everything they do, as Dr. Michio Kaku pointed out yesterday in his interview, is about money. Today, The Japan Times confirms this via Energy News - "The Obama administration urged the Kan gov't to take steps to prevent further decline in TEPCO stock." Shocked yet?
Also getting worse is housing in the US as
So. Yes, folks - Greece is quietly warning to the world that they will default, just as we predicted. Are you listening? The repercussions will be felt world wide, but what is necessary is necessary. Math is a great thing.
