Can you believe we STILL don’t know what’s going on in Japan?
How amazing is it that we can fix a broken solar panel on a Mars lander (180M miles away) yet we can’t get a straight answer on what’s going on at a nuclear reactor 5,500 miles away?
Doesn’t that seem odd to you? Either nuclear energy if EXTREMELY unsafe because – when it breaks down – even the experts can’t figure out what’s wrong, if there is anything wrong or what to do about it if it’s wrong – OR – there’s a huge cover-up and that means that we are allowing these potential weapons of mass destruction to fall into the hands of Big Business – who apparently are willing to lie to the public and cost-benefit the lives at stake against their quarterly reports. Frankly, I’ll take my chances with Iran’s government running a nuclear program before I’d let TEPCO operate another facility.
This is a very fine example of how Capitalism can, when exercised freely without Government regulation – destroy our entire planet. Sure they can wreck economies with risky derivative trading and sure they can rob people through jacked-up commodity costs and endless fees for every possible aspect of handling the money you own but that’s just good, old-fashioned Capitalism and, if you don’t like it – go to China you commie bastard.
Sure they pollute the air…
