Comment: I Agree But... (Score 1) 529 529

I totally agree that US should fast-track high performers. The rest of the world does it. Because we do not appropriately reward performance, unemployment is increasing. That said, I can understand why some feel no love for the gifted. Successful kids turn into successful adults. The top 0.1% make bundles of money which does not trickle down enough. We need to put big taxes on the rich, not to punish them, but to keep our society functioning. The alternative will be social breakdown, which could get very ugly.

I'm all for nuclear, I guess the part I don't get is why solar has no part. Maybe not from an industrial power grid scenario but I know two people who are supplying most (in one case all) of their home's power via solar. Are they doing something wrong? Is this hurting the chance for nuclear somehow?

Ok, did I miss a declaration of a douchbag contest? Did I accidentally click on youtube instead of facebook? Get over yourself and participate in the conversation like an adult, all I did was ask some questions I'm not out on the street marching against your views.

Interesting information, a bit overshadowed by unnecessary dickishness.
