#4885: In a sensible world, it would be too valuable for that.

Canada's dumping nuclear waste "within a mile of the US border". In a sensible world, where we were abandoning coal power in favor of nuclear--which is cleaner and more efficient and therefore (if it's allowed to be, politically!) cheaper. And in that world, spent nuclear fuel would be reprocessed to feed hungry reactors, the handful of chain reaction poisons seperated and stored...or "burned" in an integral fast reactor!

...instead of us trying to find ways to bury it far underground.

So, the whole Ashley Madison affair site hack thing...

There are no women on the Internet.From the article Vox Day links to:
Those millions of Ashley Madison men were paying to hook up with women who appeared to have created profiles and then simply disappeared. Were they cobbled together by bots and bored admins, or just user debris? Whatever the answer, the more I examined those 5.5 million female profiles, the more obvious it became that none of them had ever talked to men on the site, or even used the site at all after creating a profile. Actually, scratch that. As I’ll explain below, there’s a good chance that about 12,000 of the profiles out of millions belonged to actual, real women who were active users of Ashley Madison.
That's the rule: there are no women on the Internet. Myth confirmed.

Or, more correctly, "There are no women that want to meet men on the internet." That sounds about right.

A $35 million fighter jet can be stopped by about $3,000 worth of hardware. So much for "air supremacy".

Want to know how a race war will turn out? Maybe not entirely like this, but highly similar.

For the most part, inner-city blacks have guns (sometimes legal, mostly not) but they don't really know how to use them. They also have the discipline of a loose mob, and cannot be expected to perform, in battle, even half as well as would the soldiers they'd face. Furthermore, political power in this country is not in their hands; if you think Barack Hussein Obama would hesitate to order a mob of blacks machine-gunned if they tried to storm the White House, you'd better think again. The Establishment is white--even the parts which claim not to be--and they will not hesitate to use violence if it has to. And the Establishment has an Army, a Navy, a National Guard, and an Air Force at its disposal.

If there were to be a race war, the aftermath portrayed in Francis Porretto's story could easily come to pass. (It might even lead to a world like the setting of Heinlein's Starship Troopers.)

Notice that it's not said what color Colonel John Mackenzie is. He could be white, black, red, green with pink polka-dots; the color of his skin is entirely irrelevant.
If it happens, it will be horrible beyond measure. I don’t want it to happen. I fear it greatly. More people will die than have died in all of America’s wars together. But neither my fears nor anyone else’s will prevent it. Only a massive outbreak of good sense among American Negroes, most especially the willingness and determination to discipline their own and accept the verdicts of the judicial system when that discipline fails, can stave off the racial cleansing of the United States: the Separation Edicts and Sterilization Orders of the little story above.

Francis Porretto then proceeds to knock another one out of the park with his discussion of the Trump candidacy:
What's the Rubio (ineligible) position on Chinese currency manipulation? The Bush position on Agenda 21? The Kasich position on the Supreme Court's dishonest decision on Obamacare and sodomite "marriage"? The Graham position on voter ID? The Huckabee position on the undeclared war on Syria and demonization of Vladimir Putin? The Paul position on the Court's dishonest expansion of the Commerce Clause and Congress's complicity therein? The Cruz (ineligible) position on the incompatibility of Islam's death penalty for apostasy with the Constitution and with the oath of naturalization?
He correctly points out that both Rubio and Cruz are ineligible to be President while simultaneously demonstrating that none of the candidates has all the answers.

I had a not-bad day at work today but for the fact that I was struggling to keep my eyes open again. And I'm going to remedy that right now.
