Son Of Navy Vet Sebastien De La Cruz Ignores Racist Tweets To Sing Anthem Again (Video)

I could be wrong but I suspect this story is propaganda designed to ease passage of an unpopular Immigration Bill in Congress.

Development of Alternative Fuels Surpassing Expectations

Too bad there's no program to reduce California's spent nuclear fuel levels.
20% more carbon might be bad but no tsunami or catastrophic collapse of civilization will render carbon lethal like they would render lethal the precariously stored spent fuel in pools at San Onofre. The environmental priorities are wrong.

3rd American Killed In Afghan Insider Attack Was Female Soldier

I've been warned it's politcally incorrect and that it's just part of my latent cultural sexism but war casualties disturb me even more when they're women.
Not only do I think women should be absent from the war, I think men should be absent also.
Especially this war because this war is built on a pack of the most disgraceful lies centered mainly on the unconfronted deceptive events of September 11, 2001.
I still have difficulty getting my mind around the outrageous fact that Americans chose to fling their sons and daughters into tragic war without first insisting on the independent, fully funded and fully empowered 9/11 investigation.
And even though it's still not too late to conduct such an imperative investigation, deranged Americans still most often childishly address the challenge with either culpable silence, filthy hurled epithets or tired ad hominem attacks.
I'm almost through reading "Rise to Greatness: Abraham Lincoln and America's Most Perilous Year" by David Von Drehle and the author does a good job of describing what seems like mass insanity.
It's easy to ask, "were we insane?"
It's easy to ask, "are we insane?"
Please demand the long-overdue independent, fully funded and fully empowered 9/11 investigation. I think retired Army General Antonio Taguba and retired Navy Admiral William Fallon would make excellent co-chairs of the imperative investigation. TRUTH fears no question.

San Onofre Shutdown: Will It Affect California's Push For Clean Air?

But there is no short-term nuclear risk and the actual risk is very much longer than anyone seems willing to confront.
And the risk is far higher than anyone seems willing to even contemplate.
San Onofre closure doesn't mean the risk went away; actually the risk increased since at least some of the spent fuel rods during operation were more safely stored within a reactor vessel instead of with the other 30 MILLION! pounds of highly radioactive spent fuel precariously and vulnerably stored onsite in spent fuel pools or dry casks.
We're only a major earthquake away from a Fukishima-like event that has caused the forced evacuation of 150 square miles around the disaster site. Shutdown of the San Onofre plant doesn't mitigate the risk at all.
Dreadfully, the debatably more likely scenario of our creaky civilization's possibly imminent collapse with the probable nihilistic looting of spent fuel from San Onofre and other nuclear plants during the certain chaos renders any discussion of clean air laughably irrelevant.

Regardless of what method of electricity generation is used to replace that formerly produced at San Onofre, it's still artificially and criminally priced very low to allow this and past generations to irresponsibly dump the long-term astronomical costs of storing spent fuel for a million years. For decades, taxpayers have overfunded 17 bloated elitist National Laboratories whose primary mission was to correctly determine the long-term solution to storing highly radioactive waste and they have failed magnificently with zero apparent accountability having preserved their gradiose mediocrity with fat paychecks by propagandizing new questionable missions related to homeland security.

Americans are operating within a carefully created media reality that temporarily liberates them from the pain of confronting truth while simultaneously enslaving them and their descendants to the eventual consequences of horrific lies.

I suggest we confront the TRUTH now rather than later.
