Hello fellow Americans! Its funny,I'm not a radical by any means, just a Washington state country boy. In this land of the free I'm nervous about making any kind of political comment. How very sad our own life nurturing plant has been reduced to nothing but a political issue. Sure I love air shows, but by now don't we all know that our Blue Angles can fly, an outdated recruitment tool. Want to excel the development of Eco friendly cars, make it a mandate for NASCAR. Fresh water in plastic bottles! Does the average American Know how all this plastic is manufactured? Do they know about out-gassing? Recently a president was heard touting the benefits of Nuclear energy, Has he been to Hanford, Chernobyl Whatever Mile Island?

Non technical folk parrot the Rosie-Ophra line being fed us continuously.
The distaste for corporations is a consequence of a century of Marxist crap denegrating the very machine that has given the average citizen today a life better than the Tsars. MSM is largely watermelon, green outside, red inside. Go indeed to TMI, where no one was harmed but the investors, and to Hanford where there is as yet no documented health damage from handling a pool of radwaste far larger than any from power generation.

I have the best possible preparation, an education, training and real life experiance in technical matters. Remember, the dose makes the poison, and at parts per trillion there is a little bit of everything in everything else.
