"30,000- 55 gallon drums of radioactive plutonium waste, stored in fabric tents...."
Well, if you're staring at the farmville crops or porn online, probably not much. If however, you happen to have access to your cognative thought capabilities, then its a different story.
As if the Fort Calhoun Nebraska nuclear facility being within one foot of missouri river water from becoming a real catastrophe wasn't bad enough. Or that much or most of the midwestern farmland in the united states remains underwater, and hence unplantable, theres this. Theres another fire at the Los Alamos nuclear labratory compound. On those facility's grounds, theres a "section G", where approximately thirty thousand (55 gallon) drums of radioactive waste are stored, under fabric tents. Fabric tents. They're stored in fabric tents because when they used to be buried underground, it was too lately-discovered that they leaked. SO, to make it easier to inspect them, they just roll them to a spot (called area G) and stick them in tents. WHICH might seem sorta reasonable.......
Except that they had another wildfire fire at Los Alamos not too long ago. 2003 I believe, and to the best of my knowledge that fire wasnt dubbed "The one and only wildfire that did or would ever hit new mexico". Its kinda hard to believe that the supposed bright people running a place where things like nuclear bombs are built and developed (among other higher tech gizmos), anyone in charge of something so dangerous there would consider it reasonable to stick 30,000 barrels of radioactive plutonium in tents. Kinda like building a nuclear reactor on top of the most active faultlines in the united states, but thats another story. (equally idiotic)
So what. Who cares. Everyting's fine, and the experts are saying as much.
Again, I have to ask you. At WHAT point do you the farmville playing braindead out there, start to NOT swallow everything you are fed!?!? At this point, I believe its at no point. There is a percentage of the population who see through the BS that is shoveled our way on a constant basis, and the rest just take it in and start chewing. Whether that is due to a lack of flouride in our systems, or simply "genetic deficincies", some of us just see piles of brown stinky yukky stuff whenever some expert takes the microphone. Conditioning maybe. I dunno.
Anybody know the story about how the famous Rothschild Family made their incredible fortune? Pretty interesting, and the rest of this video is worth watching to find out, too.
I suggest you watch it, because its kinda connected to the next disjointed subject.
George Soros, is apparently buying up flooded farmlands in the united states, and hes getting a good deal too. Who wants flooded farmlands anyways? Now if you've been paying attention, you are at least partially aware that A: the nations weather this year alone has been pretty much unprecedented, or at the least VERY unusual.
And B: One man's calamity is another mans profit.
Worst drought, EVER, in Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and the worst flooding EVER, just a hop skip and yee haw to the east, along the mississippi and missouri river basins. But wait, it gets bettter. The army corps of engineers deemed it necessary to open the morganza spillways for the first time ever. They flooded farmlands, instead of risking flooding the city Baton Rouge and other more populated areas downstream. Sounds logical. The really interesting part is, part of the farmland that was flooded by morganza spillway water, was IN that drought zone previously talked about. You cant make that stuff up. From severe drought, to under 15 ft. of water in a day. Progress I suppose. Cant plant crops because of the drought and (unless you're farming catfish) if there's 15 feet of water on your farmland, you're not going to grow too much then either.
So what. I get it. So a rich guy is buying farmlands up and taking advantage of people's misfortunes. Not exactly breaking news there.
Unless the flooding isn't "natural". Unless it was done purposefully to create cheap, buy-up-able-farmlands. Think thats preposterous?
I dunno. What I DO know, is we are being told everything is fine and under control at the fukushima plant. And it isnt.
30,000 barrels of highly radioactive junk in very real danger of becoming airborne, and we're told everything's fine. And it isn't.
The nuke plant in nebraska on the flooding missouri river, is safe and sound. So long as none of the dams or levees upstream break, that is.
So there you have it. Everything's just fine. Or not.
And you're more worried about what food to buy for the 4th of july weekend than you are what kind of mess you're going to be in if, for whatever reason, there is no more food to be bought.
And I'M the crazy one.
Ok by me, but you are what you eat, y'know.
