To the Editor:

About 600 people will lose their jobs, and Nina Swaim is throwing a party (“Vermont Nuke Plant to Close,” Aug. 28). Swaim was quoted as saying,“I just think we all should party for a while” to describe the closing of Vermont Yankee that she helped bring about. She’s just another example of the shameless anti-nuclear activists who travel the country destroying the lives of hard-working people while doing further damage to our already pitiful energy policy.

I’ve never met Swaim, and I don’t have to. Her anti-nuclear cousins in New Jersey recently succeeded in putting both me and my wife (along with 600 others) out of a job at our plant in New Jersey. But she is going to party.

The entire town of Vernon is about to be devastated. Restaurants, retailers and every other local business just lost 600 customers. The same is going to happen to our town of Forked River. But Swaim is going to party.

Tens of millions of dollars in tax revenue is going to vanish from state and local government and will inevitably result in either cuts to programs or increases in taxes (probably both). Swaim doesn’t care. She’s partying.

Hundreds of megawatts of reliable, carbon-free electricity is about to be replaced by burning even more fossil fuels. We know what Swaim’s going to do.

I was born and raised near the plant where I work. My wife and I are happy here. So is our little girl. We had hoped to spend the rest of our lives in the home we’ve made. But thanks to Swaim and her friends, we both lose our jobs on the same day. There are 600 stories like this going on in Vernon right now and another 600 here in New Jersey. Anti-nuclear activists don’t care about the lives they destroy because big words like “nuclear” frighten them.

I won’t be attending Swaim’s party. I’ll be busy worrying about what happens to my daughter when her mom and dad simultaneously become unemployed. I doubt anyone in Vernon will be at her party, either.

Nope, they just don't trust the managers, like all Entergy employees shouldn't trust their senior two face manager...

Remember the antis had nothing to do with this, ask Entergy...

Funny how people will say f-*ing stupid things based on the BS and junk science they beLIEve and simply refuse to look at the proven and even admitted truth
This Jersey joik-off nuketard writes a ridiculous letter demonizing specific anti-nukies as being mean rotten evil doers who somehow destroyed their nuke jobs, and it serves to cause severe hate and pit classes against each other, which is about the most despicable rotten garbage you can do to others. The G-d Illuminati have always been masters at doing that troublemaking sh't

Ewe stupidly fell for the big fat lie that nukedom is the answer and 'safe' and even 'green' and ewe beLIEve this sh't even now with the ongoing horror show of Fuktupshita Japan and many kids there and others with cancer and our country about to get Bigger doses of rads ewe STILL try to play-down the Proven dangers of radiation and the fact that nukes are becoming the means of our collective species extermination!!
Chernobyl killed 1 million (documented) and the General Electric Mark I triple meltdown in Fukushima is Not Yet Contained and May Go Critical!

As for IBM which is INTERNATIONAL (run by NWO globalists) by its own 'I' in its name and has proved already for decades that it has no loyalty to Americans and already has outsourced as Much as possible of its manufacturing and electronics/software/programmi ng and more to other countries, only a f*ing idiot would think that its Continued destruction of U.S. jobs in a State like Vermont would have to do with State politics and liberals like Shummy etc.--this damn multinational co. IBM is leaving USA ANYHOW!
WTFU
It's not like IBM is opening up any big manufacturing plant in Any State-it's going totally global which means it's saying Screw the U.S. and ewe American suckers!
