Japan Approves Restart of Nuke Power Plant but Most Plants Will Never Restart

Is the nuclear age in Japan coming to an end? As the Capitalist here in Japan desperately hold on to their nuclear plants, it is becoming clear that the people`s resistance to nuclear power is starting to make it very hard to pull off wide scale reactor restarts.

Today we all remember with sadness the tragic events that took place on the now infamous date September 11, 1973, when the democratically elected Chilean government of socialist president Salvador Allende was violently overthrown by the US-backed military junta of General Pinochet. It marks the beginning of one of the first radical neoliberal reforms that would later become commonplace around the world and are the reason why we can’t have nice things within the foreseeable future.

Be aware of working working class status. Be aware of how that effects how the Capitalist class, and their agents, view you and treat. They don’t care about us at all.

UN States Japan Must Outlaw Hate Speech and Combat Racism in Society

The UN has stronger stated that Japan must deal with extreme right wing hate groups and the root cause of racism in Japan in general. Will the government of Japan take action? Check my breakdown of this!

AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.

My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”

This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!

The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.

This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.

This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!

This is absolutely outraging. My heart hurts looking at this.

You know what? It’s really pissing me off to even see a child get hit like this!

I teach young kids. What happened to this little girl rips my heat into pieces. A sweet little girl like deserves to be treated better than that. I swear if a beating like was ever attempted on any of my students there would be instant hell to pay.

As long as Western liberal democracies can name “gay rights” as the new litmus test for an appropriate twenty-first century democracy, we can obsess about “anti-gay” legislation in Nigeria and say nothing about the violence and economic exploitation of the Shell Oil Company on the land and bodies of Nigerians. We can be seduced by the international gay travel industry to visit “gay friendly” (and “post-racial paradise”) Rio de Janeiro, and say nothing of the massive police violence and genocidal removal of blacks from favelas in preparation for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics. Is it any wonder that many people outside of the United States, particularly those in sub-Saharan Africa, have grown resentful of increasing threats to pull critical funding by NGOs and Western nations for not being “LGBT friendly,” while we let all other sorts of violence and exploitation (often by corporations and evangelical churches that originate within the West) go unmentioned?

Debunking Neo-Nazism

If we are not aware at this point, Neo-Nazism has seen an upsurge in recent years. The entire ideology is often not challenged in the age of the decline of Capitalism. The Capitalist and various privileged groups only support Neo-Nazis in an attempt to protect their hold on the means of production. So, your good Comrade Jon Doe debunks Neo-Nazism in short order.

Self Center Madness

I am accused, as if others are not guilty, of being a unreliable self centered prick. I usually get this comment hurled at me I don’t ‘live up’ to or don’t think or behave in a manner which befits others. I try to explain the situation to them but be damned if they accept it. All they are willing to accept or understand is how they see things; regardless of the finer details I informed them of. Yet, during my time being alive I have noticed this trend in people here in the first world. People only wish to understand any given situation as it relates to their own emotions and how it only effects them.

I have attempted for years to tolerate this attitude but I am reaching the point in which I am starting to give up the majority of the first world population to be able to see past the tip of own noses. I am not comfortable with starting to view most people this way. I know people can see how no one can be everything they expect people to be. Yet, far too often people throw a bitch fit on me when I say, ‘No I can’t’ or ‘Sorry I am not able to do that.’ I usually have to be berated with ‘why not?!’ ‘You don’t care about me!’ ‘You are an asshole!’ ‘You are not a true friend’ or ‘I don’t believe you. You just don’t care.’ It is as if the majority of people here in Japan, both Japanese and non-Japanese, have the emotional maturity of a teenager.

Maybe I have lost you a bit so allow me to offer some details. The things, I used to be far more stable money wise than I currently am. I was without a job for eight months and I only been fully employed again for the past three months. Also, I deal with social alienation differently then I did in the past. Not only that, but my current job places a greater limitation on my ‘free time.’ So add all these things together and I have had to choose what I do in life very differently compared to years past.

I am still getting back on my feet as far as money goes so I choose activities to do carefully. For example, I would rather go to a kick music festival than go to the beach. I cannot do both and live music is more interesting by far. I would rather spend a day by the river, in my local hood, drinking beers and firing off bottle rockets than drag my ass on a train for over an hour and a half to wonder around in the woods. I would rather go to a yakiniku joint, eat cheap meat and drink cheap beer than go bar hopping chasing shallow spoiled young gals. Considering I get up early in the morning during the week and travel on a crowded ass train for an hour, I don’t want to be on the damn train on the weekend if I can avoid it. BTW Train fare can get add up real quick and drain my wallet. So the fact that money is still kind of tight for me and spending extra yen on non work related train fare is something I try to avoid, how about people coming to see me instead of me spending all the extra time and money to see them.

I am not done ranting.

There is also that fact where I work has changed. For years I traveled all the to Yokohama from Tokyo for work. So, I spent a lot of time in Yokohama and got to know a lot of people. It was easy for me to see them and hang out because I was in Yokohama often. Well, after dealing with being jobless for an extended amount of time and now finally having a job in Tokyo I have not been able to run down to the Yokohama area to see people. After work I am in Tokyo and pretty tired. By the time I got to Yokohama I would spend less time with people and more time on the trains. Fuck doing all that train travel after work.

So these days my life is different. I am focused more on the things which are important to me than trying to give a piece of myself to everyone who demands it. I finally have a job I actually really like; although it totally wears me out daily. I read a lot more than I have over the past several years; which was something I loved doing when I was younger. I get far more research done. I am writing regularly again; currently working on a long over due novel. I can be involved in activism more now. And I am in general a more calm person in general.

Yet, I am a unreliable self centered prick.
