In the current "destroy America" world of the Republicans there is one sacred industry so radioactive to touch we are told it is critical to the future of our country and must be given free rein. The VA legislators have enjoyed their bribe of a vacation in France for this industry. They have no fear of it now and should be quite willing to give it everything that the Cooch has said is dirty.

The one part of the industry we look at is the very one the Republicans say "Trust us - it won't hurt you".

This article from out west is about Cotter, a company that is radioactive in many ways. HuffPost has the first of the articles regarding Cotter getting permission to dump 90,000 gallons of radioactive stuff in to a holding pond (never mind the pond leaks). This morning in a litigation happy Denver newspaper the article is how Cotter is requesting to be relieved of its requirement to measure the ph of the pond. Why you may ask? Due to the high level of radioactivity which is probably frying the employees.

Ah - the sweet sounds of BS coming from Republicans and the uranium industry. It won't hurt you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
