I Love the Smell of Nuclear Waste in the Morning!
Here are three realities as they relate to the Yucca Mountain Project…
1.) Nuclear waste – in the form of “pellets,” not green goo oozing from under the lids of steel canisters – is piling up at the nation’s nuclear reactors and has to go “somewhere” else.
2.) The law of the land – rightly or wrongly – as passed by Congress says the only potentially suitable site for a repository is at Yucca Mountain in Nevada, not far from the old Nevada Test Site where actual nuclear bombs were once exploded.
3.) That land, along with more than 85 percent of the rest of Nevada, is owned by the federal government – meaning “state’s rights” arguments are built on thin reeds. Rightly or wrongly, Yucca Mountain is not on Nevada land despite being within our borders.
A couple more realities: Harry Reid is no longer the Senate Majority Leader and no longer has the power to block efforts to designate Yucca Mountain as the nation’s waste repository. Also, Barack Obama, who did Reid’s bidding for the last eight years, is no longer in the White House.
Lastly, the lineup of states wanting the repository in Nevada vs. the states that don’t want it in Nevada is roughly 49-1, with small Nevada being the one.
Does anyone else see the inevitable writing on the Yucca Mountain wall?

P.S. When it comes to draining swamps, sometimes it’s hard to say which swamp is the most dangerous.
Washington, DC is clearly at the top of the list. However, Jakarta, Indonesia is giving it a run for its money after it was discovered that a 23-foot… TWENTY THREE FOOT!… reticulated python swallowed a 25-year-old man whole.
The New York Daily News has the GRAPHIC video. Click here
By the way, I checked with Snopes and it is NOT true the python initially tried to swallow Nancy Pelosi but spit her back out because she left such a bad taste in its mouth. I don’t know where these rumors start (OK, on this one, I do).

NEVADA NEWS & VIEWS
When You’ve Lost the Daily Kos…
Nevada Democrat Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford, trying to protect his electoral chances for attorney general next year, killed accidental State Sen.Yvanna Cancela’s (D-Culinary Union) “sanctuary state” bill this week…which has the uber-libs at the Daily Kos hopping mad.
Kos essentially wrote that Ford should grow a pair and be more like former Baltimore Mayor Martin O’Malley, who knows “that crime only goes down when relationships of trust between law enforcement and minority communities are built.”
Here’s a photo of the trust between law enforcement and the minority community in O’Malley’s Baltimore taken just last year…
Yeah, I can’t imagine WHY Nevada doesn’t want to be more like this!

FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“Donald Trump may have suffered a setback on healthcare, but he’s been a virtual machine when it comes to rolling back Barack Obama’s midnight regulatory onslaught. The president on Monday killed three more rules by the previous president on his way out the door.” – Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial, 3/30/17
