That's right, just put it off for someone else to deal with...

ABCNEWS.com : Official Suggests 'Grouting' Nuclear Waste: "'Where there's a small amount of residual, let's grout it and cap it, and monitor it,' Deputy Energy Secretary Kyle McSlarrow told ABC News. 'And if there is any leakage in the future, we can deal with it.'"
What kind of world are we leaving for our children?

While I think this is a bad idea, I do want to see Bush back in the White House. I think this article was written with one purpose in mind. And notice that they didn't quote any scientists to prove or disprove any of the points made by either side.

At this time, I believe there is a greater enemy. Kerry, because of Vietnam, seems too morally conflicted to fight this enemy. I say this with sympathy rather than censure. His Senate voting history points only to a man who places the Liberal Cause above common sense. Bush is by no means my favorite, but I don't dislike him, and I can't in good conscience vote for someone who wouldn't be able to stand up to those who might not have our interests at heart.

Lessee here...spend billions for the wellbeing of generations to come, or save some money and potentially harm millions in the future...which would you choose?

Zelda - I understand where you are coming from, but we have had 4 years of Bush already, we know what to expect from him, whereas Kerry is still an unknown as far as what he will do as a president with what we hope would be some good advisors around him. Sometimes change for changes sake is a good thing, sometimes not.

Lady Charisse - I am all for cleaning it up now as we have no idea what the world will be like down the road, and the longer we let it leak, the more chance for some terrorists to take advantage of it and create an even bigger mess.

I am all for cleaning it up now, and I still don't feel I can take a chance on Kerry. I think too much is at stake on the world stage, and personally, I don't feel like apologizing to anyone for Iraq or Afghanistan or 9/11. Thanks for your comments paulie, I really enjoy reading them.
