By the people, For the people

Over and over and over again I hear how we don’t trust our Governments to tell us the truth. Well, a friend of mine today, reminded me that governments don’t really exist… that word ‘government’ is just a reference to a group of people usually in great power or wealth. They are suppose to serve the people and yet when you see the way they treat themselves different from the ‘people’, it’s easy to understand their focus is on improving their lives first…  to help themselves by creating laws that benefit them and their loyalist… after that, they will consider the people.

In Russia, where memory of the very different Chernobyl disaster 25 years ago is strong, media reports said pharmacies in Vladivostok, a major port just west of Japan, had run out of the pills.

“The mass media tells us that the wind is blowing the other way, that radiation poses no threat. But people are a mess,” Valentina Chupina, a nanny in Vladivostok, said in a comment posted on the website of the newspaper Delovoi Peterburg. She said people don’t believe the government will warn them if something goes wrong so potassium iodide is being bought up in the pharmacies.

Here in the US, officials are telling “You just aren’t going to have any radiological material that, by the time it traveled those large distances, could present any risk to the American public,” said Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Greg Jazcko.

When Clinton acknowledges to inhaling and Obama discloses the ufo files, I may consider the idea that government officials are telling the truth. Until then…. I trust them to be who they are and taking precautions would be wise. Don’t get me wrong, I have alot of respect for both these presidents, but they aren’t really running the show and they are not always allowed to be honest.

We live on a moving and breathing planet entering an era of unprecedented changes. Here are some little hints…

  • Stock up on seeds. If you are in a region that experiences major damage and are able to make it through the first few weeks or months, you may need a source of food to replace what is no longer available to you.
  • Learn to live in harmony with nature. If Japan didn’t have nuclear monsters on their island, they wouldn’t be creating this experience on our planet. The earthquake, tsunami and snows are bad enough without a nuclear meltdown of 6 reactors. We need to learn a completely different lifestyle… one that doesn’t need nuclear power plants…
