“Air drops aim to cool reactor” was the headline for the
3/17 Register. When your emergency backup plan to prevent
a meltdown is to drop water from a helicopter, it may be time
to get a new plan.
On page 15A of the same issue, was Joel Brinkley’s, “What,
exactly, does Pakistan do for us?”, details how over the
past 10 years, your government has squandered $22 billion
down the proverbial rat hole in Pakistan. It makes you wonder
sometimes why we have Grassley, Harkin and Latham to
represent us. If this is working for us, I don’t want to see
what working against us would look like.
The 3/19 Register was not to be outdone. Page 3A, “Judge
blocks Wisconsin’s union law”. Somehow they managed
to find a liberal judge in Wisconsin.
On the same page was, “FDA wants fewer menthols”. Let’s
see, the only outcome this product has is certain death, so your
government wants to keep it. Not get rid of it, just less of it.
Tax revenue anyone?
“Obama understates future deficits, budget office says”.
How could this be?! Page 4A.
On page 8A was the Register Editorial, “Reporting facts not
a crime”. It was about how the Iowa House wants to make it a
crime to film animal abuse at factory farms. Just who is the Iowa
House working for? Corporate ag interests or the people? Whether
it is poultry production or meatpacking plants, they need intense
scrutiny, not less.
