Japan: Like most gov'ts, the Japanese gov't fudges the truth about important crises, like nuclear power plants going awry. Since such issues are so life-and-death critical, however, "fudging the truth", is more appropriately defined as,"LYING." Well, just think if there was a crisis like the Japan nuke plant(s)-gone-wild HERE, but the people who were in charge of our Government and our privatised utilities were KOCHS AND TEABAGGERS? Need I say more?
I have more than a hundred readers from BEYOND LJ - that is more than twice of what it was a few weeks ago. I don't want to disappoint you 100 people, so let me clarify a few things.
This journal is not a blog about the crisis in Wisconsin. I try to keep those Wisconsin-relevant posts public - but they do not show up every day, or even every other day. I also publicly post several political, amusing, insightful posts/links which could be useful to general public readers. They may switch to "friends-only" later, as did my "PRESERVATION OF EMPIRE" posts. You can keep up to date on wisconsin via madison_fights.
I started another journal where more of my rad posts can be permanently available to the public - that only has a few posts so far. If you want to read more, then it is advisable that you create your own LJ, and then friend me. You would then be accepted as a troll, with the ability to read a little more posts, or a friend, with the ability to read a lot more, as well as to comment. I tend to restrict access to some meaningful posts which I feel may be exploited.
If you friend me, you need to have sufficient bio/explanatory info and interests on your LJ profile page, and hopefully some posts as well. (To view someone's profile page, hit their tiny icon next to their user name. To see their posts, hit their user name).
And people who haven't made themselves trustworthy friends HAVE NO IDEA about what kind of crazy insane porn they've been missing out on.
However, I am in a phase where I will not be posting intriguing esseys so much here, for several months. If you have me on FEED, you will probably be disappointed. I'm not going to be posting much of great value for a while. Maybe some, just by chance. You can selectively read my past posts by going to my profile page, and viewing "Tags" via the link at the top of the page. However, only a relatively small amount of my posts have been sorted into the tag system, so far.
I'm a major fan of Norman Goldman. I think a lot of you arrived here via his site/facebook. After a bit of Wisconsin badgering, it has become clear that Norman is regularly stopping by to read my posts. This is an honour. Whatever I can do to help, being but a neuron in the great Progressive Mind, fighting for my life. OK, bye for now.
