frakkking a$$holes !

I suggest: confiscate+sozialize all TEPCO's assets instead ! (oh, and all those who cashed on TEPCO-shares in the past: please have the decency to commit seppuko and bequeath your $$$s to some fund to alleviate the damage you are co-responsible for!)

Right on Wolf...Deciding that Tepco is too big to fail and costing citizens their tax money in the cause of a corporation that did public harm to its community and the shareholders too is unconscionable.

This disaster is going to keep giving for many years to come... they should take over the company if they are going to have to feed it all the money anyway then maybe they can get it run better... I can't believe how many people are still calling nuclear clean energy after this...

Gucci Bags are made of materials that are tough and can last but are designed to look great. All the way from nickel to bamboo to all kinds of Gucci Outlet

For decades, Tepco earning lots of money on production, and now when comes to paying, they haven't enough money. The effects of a disaster are really expensive

Of course they do, that's what capitalists have been allowed to do. Destroy the planet, go broke and plunder the treasuries

Any dip$#*^s like TEPCO that can't keep up basic maintenance of casualty cooling systems on their nuclear facilities doesn't deserve to run them or profit as a business. Tell Japan not to make the same mistake we made with 'bailouts' here in USA; I wish we could rescind the bailouts.

Why are we bailing out Japan and going in dept deeper? It doesn't make since when us tax payers will be footing the bill. I like Japan but the money handout has gotten out of hand.

TEPCO should be doing the bailing out and the Japanese Government. Let's cut some of their bonuses, and dissolve TEPCO's assets to help the victims. They knew about the risk - I do not believe that they are now asking for a hand out. I know that it is unfortunate for the victims - but if they receive the bail out money now - they and other companies like it will think it was o.k. and keep on gambling - because other countries will help them out should something happen!
