Comment Reactors can lift themselves (just barely) (Score 1) 243

> And how do you intend to lift your nuclear reactor to orbit? Nuclear reactors are pretty heavy.

*Current* reactor designs produce just barely enough energy to lift themselves. You'd need rocket assist to lift everything else. Of course you'd also need to do the engineering to convert the nuclear power to thrust efficiently, but on it's face it's not impossible.

Only a few years before Bill Clinton did this, the DEMOCRATS has weaponized the same sort of misdeed to remove Senator Packwood from office. Actually that is not true, they had weaponized it before that and had used it against numerous public officials. Then when the Republicans tried to hold Bill Clinton to the standard the Democrats had established they started making the argument you are making. Of course, as soon as they believed that people had forgotten they attempted to go back to the weapon which had worked so well for them in the past.

So you do not remember the people saying that it was "just sex"? The same people who only a few years earlier drive Senator Bob Packwood from office for much the same thing. Only when Senator Packwood had done what Bill Clinton did they said that it was always coercive when a man of his position had sex with an intern.
