We have returned to the worthless debate on the ownership of guns…..the same debate we have with every attack and/or massacre…….the same waste of time ….time after time (not a Cindy Lauper song)…..
Of course I will be labelled whatever the mental midget class call people the disagree with them…apologist, bleeding heart, liberal, or my favorite, political correct.
So before the inevitable stupidity starts let me say my views right now….
I am against the ownership of assault weapons…..they are not needed for protection if so then the idiot holding it is a terrible shot then I suggest a shotgun…..they are not used for hunting….and if someone just gets off on shooting them then join the Army they will let these idiots play with them as much as they like.
There even those that agree with me……

There is no asterisk at the end of the iconic poem etched into our Statue of Liberty.
“Give me your tired, your poor…” doesn’t end with “except Muslims” or any other blanket xenophobic prohibition.
But, sadly, many of our politicians are acting like it does, whether it’s through calling for all Muslims to be deported or not letting those fleeing war and persecution into our country.
That’s why today, World Refugee Day, we all need to stand up for the basic human rights of the most vulnerable individuals of our time.
This is shameful.
Robert Greenwald, President

Unfortunately what Stephen Comley says is relevant for all (or almost all) countries where there is nuclear power.
“Stephen B. Comley Sr @stephencomleysr

Republican Presidential Candidate, Stephen Comley, has an almost thirty year track record of working for nuclear safety:
“Spurred by a letter from then Nuclear Regulatory Commissioner’s Executive Director, Victor Stello, declaring the most vulnerable of our citizens would be left behind in the event of nuclear disaster Stephen B. Comley, Sr. brought the fight to the door of United States’ Presidents, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and the national press.

India is a nuclear-armed state. India is not a party to the NPT, it is not a party to a nuclear weapon-free zone treaty, it will not join the CTBT, and it will not make legal commitments identical to NPT articles concerning its nuclear arms. NSG members therefore are compelled to think harder than in previous cases about what will be the consequences of admitting India into the group.
The United States advocates Indian NSG membership for commercial and geostrategic reasons largely unrelated to nuclear export controls.
The Nuclear Suppliers Group’s Critical India Decision An upcoming meeting will decide whether India will be allowed to join. Member states should think carefully. The Diplomat, By Mark Hibbs June 18, 2016 Beginning on Monday, the Nuclear Suppliers Group, or NSG – 48 countries that export most of the world’s nuclear material, equipment, and technology – will meet in Seoul to decide whether India should now…

“We also make money by selling solar power when we not irrigating our fields. We can sell excess electricity to…

Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition April 11, 2016 Marilyn Elie, “……..Coal, oil, and gas are all remnants from our prehistoric past. They are mined from the earth at great cost and labor…….
The price of civilization has been the destabilization of the natural system of checks and balances that has kept our atmosphere – the air we breathe – operating within the narrow band of gases that is hospitable to life.
Uranium, although it is not rich in carbon, fits into this category of mined fuels. The Navajo have a saying, “You might meet old coal miners, but you will never meet old uranium workers.” The mining and enrichment of the ore into fuel requires an enormous amount of electricity, and most of all, the reactors that are fueled by uranium alter the fuel rods and produce plutonium. One of the most deadly substances on the face of…
