Are you more afraid of our government being too smart or too dumb?
If you’re afraid of the government being too smart, you’re probably worried about all the spying they’re doing on us, all the bullets they’re buying up, all the military equipment they’re giving to local police departments and all the elections they’re trying to rig.
If you’re afraid of the government being too dumb, you’re probably concerned about them getting us involved in too many wars, how they’re not upgrading the electrical grid, how they’re not securing our borders and how they’re trying to change the Constitution.
I go back and forth on this. But today, my issue is with how dumb they are. Wouldn’t you think that with all of the talk about terrorism and with all of the threats against our country that have come from terrorist nations and individual terrorists, that we would make sure that all of our nuclear plants were protected at all times?
I certainly would, and so I was surprised to learn that recently a nuclear plant within 50 miles of Washington, D.C., was being left virtually unguarded, according to the Daily Caller. Reporters from this publication said they drove right up to the reactor at Maryland’s Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant without encountering any security officers. They weren’t stopped by a locked gate and they weren’t questioned by anyone working there. A reporter called it, “one of the softest targets I’ve ever seen.”
Before publishing its report about it, the Daily Caller alerted the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which promised that the security problems would be fixed.
Well, gee, thanks. That’s a great idea. How about doing that BEFORE somebody figures out that a nuclear plant is a soft target? Right now, terrorists around the world are doing everything they can to get fake passports that will allow them to come into the United States. Of course, thanks to Obama, they could just walk across the Mexican border without a problem, but that’s a subject for another day.
What are you more afraid of? The government doing something on purpose to take away your rights or the government doing something stupid that would put is in danger? I’d love to hear from you about this.
