    Of course, the damage it causes to your health when you consume food that has been contaminated by nuclear radiation or spilled oil does not dissapate or bio degrade.

    It's easy to talk about it when it isn't your back yard, but I gurantee you aren't jumping at the chance to have a Mark I nuclear reactor built down the street from your house just because you electric bill would go down.

    If the government would stop trying to fix every goddamn thing, we wouldn't be paying so much and if we were, we could at least afford to do so.
    Conjecture, not fact.

    You shut down the oil and gas industry and you're killing some of the best paying private sector jobs in the country, not to mention the tax revenue that is generated by those jobs.

    Name another industry where a high-school drop out can go to work at 18, making 50 grand a year.

    What does a law school grad make in his first year post bar exam?
    Where the **** are you getting that I want to shut down the oil and gas industry?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I haven't seen too many nuke powered cars on the market, lately.
    How are the whaler jobs doing these days?

    Not too good, since a better product dominated the market.

    So, tell us, how did the government effect that transition?

    Air quality, the occasional oil spill. Things like that.
