I am mad as hell, and I am not going to take Mitch McConnell anymore.
Mitch McConnell, the Prince of Fools, is quoted today as saying, "we shouldn't base our energy programs on what happens in Japan". Why the hell not, Mitch?! Does a major earthquake and a tsunami wave traveling at the speed of a jet need to smack you in the head to get a point across?

What makes you think that what happened in Japan can't happen here?

Geologists in the state of Washington have discovered indications in substrata sediment of major quakes that have happened in the past. The states of Washington and California have nuclear reactors built on fault lines, as do other states.

Radioactivity released in Japan can travel to the United States easily since weather moves from West to East . Radioactivity released in California and Washington state can easily travel to Washington DC and   all the places in between just as easily. Get a clue Mitch!

Like an ostrich with its head in the sand so I can't see approaching danger, Mitch McConnell disregards the fact that cesium released into the air is dangerous for 600 years. Should we take that chance that an earthquake can affect our nuclear reactor program? Of course, if you're a Republican who has bought into the nuclear reactor business model, and taking contributions from the nuclear reactor industry it's easy to see how you could want to bury your head in the sand, Mitch.

And if there is a nuclear problem here, you might have to. After all, radioactive cesium is only dangerous for the first 600 hundred years or so. Mitch, you're a dinosaur. Stop trying to make everyone here be as extinct as one.

Most of the people here, being liberals, my comments are like preaching to the choir. But all of you have friends who probably disagree with me. Remember friends don't let friends vote Republican.

And while I have your attention Mitch, instead of balancing the budget on the backs of people who can't afford it how about taking a pay reduction, a retirement reduction (a congressman gets 50% of their income as a retirement package), and take a cut on your health care, like you're making us do.

I have been walking around doing magic for people since I taught myself close-up sleight of hand illusions, the hardest type of magic, when I was six years old (1954). After achieving very high marks in high school science I considered studying (more...)

I am mad as hell about this radioactivity and I'm not going to take it anymore.
