Edison and Mitsubishi Knew San Onofre Steam Generators Were Defective

A press release issued Wednesday by two prominent members of Congress charged that Southern California Edison (SCE) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) knew that the two replacement steam generators for the San Onofre nuclear plant were defective, and avoided adding safety measures to keep from triggering stricter scrutiny by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Senator Barbara Boxer of California and Congressman Ed Markey of Massachusetts send a letter to NRC Chair Allison Macfarlane on Wednesday stating “Southern California Edison and MHI were aware of serious problems with the design of San Onofre nuclear power plant’s replacement steam generators before they were installed. Further, SCE and MHI rejected enhanced safety modifications and avoided triggering a more rigorous license amendment and safety review process.” more information here...

Well ya see, Sydney, it's like this.... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

Any time you hear a liberal say they want to have a "rational" discussion about anything, be prepared to hear some of the most irrational bullshit you will ever hear in your life.

Obama was looking for a call girl.
He found three such girls in a local pub, a blonde, a brunette
and a redhead.

To the blonde he said, I am the President of the United States .
Now how much would it cost me to spend some time with you?'
She replied, $200.'

To the brunette he asked the same question.
Her reply was $100.

He then asked the redhead...
Her reply was,

“Mr. President, if you can get my skirt up as high as my taxes
My panties as low as my wages,
Get that thing of yours as hard as the times we are living in,
And keep it rising like the price of gas,
Keep me warmer than it is in my apartment and
Screw me the way you have retirees,
Then you can have it for free, like the immigrants.”

In other words, “Fuck Obama”.

BK runs the kiosk stop sign and gets pulled over by a ranger.
He thinks that he is smarter than the ranger and is certain that he has a better education then any stupid park ranger. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the rangers expense.
The ranger says "License please". BK says "What for?" ranger says "Ya didn't come to a complete stop at the stop sign". BK says "I slowed down and no one was coming".
Ranger says "Ya still didn't come to a complete stop. Let's see your license please?"
BK says "What's the difference?" Ranger says "The difference is, ya hafta come to complete stop, that's the law... now LICENSE PLEASE!"
BK says "If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I'll give you my license and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don't give me the ticket".
Ranger says "Sounds fair to me. Exit your van, sir"
BK exits his van. The ranger takes out his baton and starts beating the fuck out of BK.
After a few minutes he says "Now do ya want me to stop... or just slow down??"

Obama finally goes on his first State visit to Israel. While he is on a tour of Jerusalem, he has a fatal heart attack.
The undertakers tells the US diplomats: "You can have him shipped home for $1 million or you can bury him here in the Holy Land for $1000."

The US diplomats go into a huddle and come back to the undertaker and tell him they still want Obama flown home.
The undertaker is puzzled and asks: "Why would you spend $1 million to get him home when it would be wonderful to be buried here in this religious country and you would only spend $1000?"
One diplomat replied: "More than 2000 years ago a man died here, was buried here, and just 3 days later he rose from the dead. We simply can't take that risk".
