I love my government assistance, which I spend on marijuana while I'm on vacation in Europe. Then I get to come home to a cozy house full of food, thanks to heating assistance and food stamps. Luckily I don't have any health insurance bills to pay, since mine is FREE! I don't even need a job.<quoted text>
They live off the government spending.

mike has the reformer censored the elrick story

Censored is such a harsh word... a group like the police are so cohesive and restrictive of information...with the policies of the police academy...I just think the media is having a hard time cracking the story. I dont think they know what is going on in there...the story is not available....versus they know the story and not reporting it.

"The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility."

I just moved here from Long Island. Back in the '70, LI had the makings of a nuclear power plant. COST? in the MILLIONS, Millions over budget.In 1970's dollars.
Many dubious building flaws, many pay-offs and under the table deals. Lots of thefts of material, etc. Pol used scare tactics to get it discommissioned. Several got elected on that scare basis. "elect me and I will close the plant"!
It was almost on line.. almost..
and it was turned off, after having spent all that money! And 30 yrs later, it just sits. No one seems to know what to do with the wastes or the building or the land as it is all unusable. And it is waterfront land! The town,Shoreham reaped huge benifets on r e taxes from the power company. Well, now it is not operating and the power company wanted the re tax money back! Well who paid for that? the whole Island did pay and is still paying 30 yrs later. Will continue to pay for the next milineum! So what do all those who want to close plant see as a replacement? What is going to happen to the land? to the nuclear wastes?
There has to be a plan for the future handling of this and any other plants that come are built.
Some one said there was contanimation in a stream, do I believe it? no. That was one of the scare tactics used on LI and it was later proven false!
So millions and millions of dolalrs were WASTED.
Money that could have gone to do much much more in the betterment of a developing Long Island.
Think hard and long Vermont...not just a knew jerk reaction
