Where is the Tea Party on Immigration Reform?
Many people think the borders need to be better controlled, especially since there is considerable civil strife in other places and we are at war with terrorists. Doesn't that seem reasonable? There needs to be a special role reserved for citizens of this country, and an expectation that people that live here support our nation and are not trying to being it down, transmute it into a different culture or politicla affiliation. We have a national standard, and are not just a compilation of ethnic groups wandering around here.
We have to consider how many foreigners we can support, given the debt that the nation is carrying. It is unreasonable to expect no limits to immigration for this reason alone.
We should also concentrate on building better relations and associations with the countries in our own hemisphere as a priority. We cannot act like the global superpower, be in jeopardy, and watch international economies fail. We are way overextended and have assumed a risky position. The global situation is unstable.

A simple clear message for the opposing party : We need to protect our independence.

The lady interviewed about the Middletown Power plant - said they were purging. She was giving an apparently independent, candid description of the blast and was described as residing across the river and walking outside with her dogs, and having her windows broken from the shock wave.
How did she know they were purging their gas lines?
Just an unexplained item.

Not quite like yesterday; they looked like they were going to keel over at any second.
Why did they pick The Who (although the song is appropriate for the times)?

"WHO" knows, I'd have picked Lady GAGA for the Half-Time act:

Good choice. Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend don't look a day over 94.
February 07, 2010 at 09:02 PM
Wow, The Saints have a shot at it.
February 07, 2010 at 09:14 PM
Looks good for the Saints.

Uh, like.. maybe it's like.. a routine thing they do? And maybe she has experiecnced it before and thus knew what they were doing and the procedure went wrong?

D@mn, they made Über-liberal Springsteen look youthful by comparison! Did the child-molesting Pete Townshend look like Barry Manilow or what?
Or a bad Captain Kirk with and even worse wig!

What's wrong with Pink Floyd instead of these old stinkers? At least Pink Floyd is actually still on tour every now and then.
Not to mention they're in a league of their own, regardless of their age.
Pink Floyd would have ROCKED the awesome lightshow and pyrotechnics they had at the Bowl.
Too bad the good stuff was wasted on the Guess... ?

Springsteen was GREAT when he played last year. I like Pink Floyd but I've never seen them in concert.

Brand new plant under construction :->

Where is the global waste disposal site for Power Plants ?
Amid the slurries, and glassified remains of heat and power production, what do countries do with their waste? In the US, with large discussions, nuclear waste is stored in Nevada, or onsite at a plant. Coal ash is a big problem, and what to do with this large volumed waste is a pressing problem even here in the US. What are European and Asian countries doing with theirs?
One answer is to dump it into the ocean, sometimes in barrels. What they do is fill a ship's cargo hold with the barrels, and then skuttle the boat, letting it sink to the bottom. The recent tsunami caused barrels of waste to emerge on the beach in Sudan, leaking fluids that were radioactive.
Favorite dumping grounds include the Afrcian coast and the Mediterranean, involving possibly thousands of ships. Perhaps the answer is not to proliferate nuke plants all over the world, for the sake of clean energy.

I mistook the Who for the klangers from SF- The Grateful Dead. Hopefully thy will destroy their instruments and never play again. It was a great run.
February 08, 2010 at 12:39 PM
Well, they used to destroy their instruments all the time on stage..
February 08, 2010 at 01:23 PM
The Who looked like Doublecratic Congresspeople from san Francisco.
February 08, 2010 at 01:31 PM
The Who would feel right at home performing with the Zimmers:

Coal ash is used for fill material in construction, sand blasting, shingle grit, or simply placed in landfills. At least that is what we do with it in KY. It is a crushed black sand/glass product. You can buy it here for about two bucks for thirty tons.
February 08, 2010 at 01:50 PM
I was researching coal ash, which I - admittedly - know nothing about, and what did I find?
A "new threat" to the oceans: rising PH levels! Ocean acidification!
Jan. 30 2009
The world’s marine ecosystems risk being severely damaged by ocean acidification unless there are dramatic cuts in CO2 emissions, warn scientists.
More than 150 top marine researchers have voiced their concerns through the “Monaco Declaration”, which warns that changes in acidity are accelerating.
The declaration, supported by Prince Albert II of Monaco, builds on findings from an earlier international summit.
It says pH levels are changing 100 times faster than natural variability.
You can't make this stuff up kids, but then.. THEY DO!
