Japan lesson: Go slow on relicensing California nukes

Foresight is a quality rarely seen among politicians in Sacramento, which makes it remarkable that 10 state legislators actually displayed a lot of it barely two weeks before the devastating March 11 9.0 Japanese earthquake and the nuclear power plant crisis that followed. Full Story

We MUST agree with Senator Feinstein that a dramatically devalued role for Congress is vital to the mission to elevate President Obama's prestige in the Islamic World not matter how devastating the medium and long term consequences will be for America and American families.

If the President is too succeed, Congressional democrats MUST surrender.

California has the largest delegation of post 60s 70s era revolutionary Washington politicians of any State. California sits on the dangerous earthquake prone "ring of fire" faults line. Despite the political influence our California revolutionary delegation has on the political affairs of the nation, they have not moved to shut down the State's existing dangerous nuclear powered electrical generating facilities. WHY???

My guess is that pixie-power is unavailable and hydrocarbon-based power is expensive. So, nuclear.

The best place for nuclear is underground on top of solid bedrock and away from earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis. Its safe and secure location is a mandatory requirement or nothing at all!

Sadly, most of the CA Dems who we thought were Anti War are now Union owned so they will not allowed to stand up to Obama no matter what happens.
