President Barack Obama took Tuesday a major bet on nuclear power, announcing eight billion dollars in loan guarantees to build the first new plant on US soil in nearly 30 years.
The United States has endless amounts of coal, all we have to do is blow the top off a couple of mountains, and there it is, ready for the taking. Not only that, but we can harvest the wind as well, that's a clean and unlimited source of energy as well. especially around Washington DC, where right and left wing wind bags are always blowing. So why build nuclear power plants?
Does this mean we're going to impose sanctions on ourself? Perhaps the Israeli premier will travel to Russia to push for crippling sanctions against the US.
Well, despite the fact that there's no credible evidence that Iran has a nuclear weapons program, even with Secretary of State Clinton putting Iran in the impossible position of proving a negative, the push to punish Iran for doing the same thing that President Obama just announced plans to do seems a tad....hypocritical. Did I say a tad? I meant overwhelmingly hypocritical.
