    Yet another 'product' that has caused untold suffering and death through all the years since they put it into just about everything KNOWING it caused cancer.

        about ANYTHING, and EVERYTHING, and the fact that the closer an advocate emulates that line and style, the more suspect they must be considered to be, regardless of the topic.

        When the line resorts to subjective, unprincipled attack, adhominem, diversionary misrepresentation, and outright just cannot be trusted, no matter how "true" some elements of the "argument" may seem to be.


        I defy any nuke advocate to bring one freakin' actual material example of Greenpeace, or Union of Concerned Scientists, or the broader environmental movement, or those advocating for public/worker health and safety protections, let alone for rational and just economic priorities and practices, EVER bringing ANYTHING even CLOSE to such outrageous lies, corruption, absolutely false and slanderous vilification of critics, deliberate hiding of relevant information, retaliation against whistleblowers, etc, etc, as the Chamber of Commerce and it's clients have so typically, consistently, historically deployed, on EVERYTHING they address.

        Show me even ONE freakin' example of environmentalists erroneously, let alone DELIBERATELY sickening, maiming, or killing, ANYONE, let alone hundreds, thousands, and even millions of people, at home and abroad, for their "own" profit, against the public interest.

        Nobody is perfect, but I know whom I trust when it comes to information, and it's NOT the Chamber of Commerce, or anyone they represent, or who emulates their heinous practice.

        Democracy is the most fundamental revolutionary principle. Information is the ultimate key.
