The REAL problem is that we are throwing away useful FUEL. None of that waste should be buried. Instead, it should go into new reactors that can make use of it, and then what is left from that, should be buried.

Right now, the greatest detriment is that the far left and far right are INSISTENT on pushing their own form of energy.
The only one being smart is O who wants to push them all, but is too busy dealing with the house neo-cons/tea*

lets get mPower from B&W, TransAtomic, and Flibe funded and building new reactors.
In particular, mPower can have their first reactor ready in under 5 years. We should provide them a contract for 10 reactors which are then put in place in CA for water distillation, along with electricity.
Then Transatomic and Flibe will take a while to get ready, but they are IDEAL for putting on-site at the old reactors, and burning up the 'waste' fuel. And it would allow the old reactors to be taken down slowly, with the profits from the new reactors.

By all means do not remove the old 'waste'. Leave it there. Instead, ship a unit on a grain that is designed to reprocess the waste into fuel for transatomic and flibe.

I suspect that it isn't a reading comprehension problem, but that you are so on board with "men are evil" that you ignore anything said that doesn't fit your women are victims, men are evil narrative.


Are you seriously trying prove your point with a false dichotomy and then calling me stupid? Really?
How about her call to Lego to remove any facial hair from their characters because showing men with facial hair is bad.
How about her call for companies not to show men playing with their sons because that is bad.
How about her claim that testosterone is bad.

You haven't watched her videos then. She is very clear that men are bad. Even going so far as to say that men playing with blocks with their son is proof of men being bad. She also decries the evils of razor stubble and testosterone as more evidence of the evil that is man.

By letting police and prosecutors decide when to enforce the law and when not to, you make them defacto judges. When their decisions carry penalties, they become defacto "executioners" (Yes, I put the word executioners in quotes because they do not actually kill you, but they do enact punishments including jail time and financial costs).

When you have laws the get selectively enforced, innocent people are already getting punished. Worse yet, you are giving a criminal the tool to use that punishment for his own agenda. Selective enforcement means that the law isn't really a law, it is just an excuse to use the color of law to abuse citizens, and lives are already being ruined by stupid laws combined with selective enforcement.

A big reason that we have so many stupid laws is due to selective enforcement.

I watched one of her videos. It was 13 minutes of man hate. Things like calling out father-son road trips as being bad. Or fathers playing with their sons at all as being bad. Claiming that testosterone is an inherently a negative trait is understandably sexist. She is simply a hate-monger. Dismissing her sexist hate-mongering does not make the parent poster a bigot.

You are right, there is no excuse for threats of violence. That being said, she is is absolutely trying to insult men. The video I watched had her saying that commercials that show fathers playing with their sons, and father son road trips are wrong. She also says that testosterone and facial hair are negative traits. Basically the video I watched was 13 minutes of man hate.

When you make a high profile career out of hate-mongering, it should not surprise you that someone is going to behave badly towards you.
