Why America Was Right To Drop The Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima

70 years ago, a USAAF B-29 bomber dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Three days later, another bomber dropped a second bomb on Nagasaki. Five days thereafter, Japan surrendered unconditionally, thus bringing World War 2 – by far the bloodiest and most destructive conflict in world history – to an end.

America has again had to face the reality of terrorism hitting our streets. The Boston Bombing was another wake-up call that we are under attack and the enemy walks among us, yet we are not supposed to admit who the enemy really is, at least not out loud.  We have a President who thinks that by ignoring the enemy, we ...

Free trade is for idiots

For decades, globalists and libertarian free trade ideologues have been telling us that free trade has been “good” for America, that it’s a traditional conservative/Republican policy, and that any suggestion that America should protect its industry – i.e. protectionism – is a Big Government policy and a betray of “free market principles”.

What is Nuclear Meltdown

News out of Japan is replete with the technical lingo of nuclear power generation: fuel rod, exposure, feed and bleed, hydrogen explosion and meltdown.

Feed and Bleed: Fukushima Reactor Cooling Still Dicey

In a maneuver called “feed and bleed” Japanese engineers are performing a hail Mary style attempt at cooling the troubled Fukushima reactor that has at least partially melted down. The technique involves feeding, or rather pumping, cold water into the reactor’s pressure vessel, but they can only do that for a short time. As the water hits the overheated fuel rods, it boils. ...

Tsunamis Teach Lessons in Safety

Sen. Joe Leiberman appeared in an interview with Bob Schieffer on Sunday. In the interview, Leiberman made the case that the U.S. must reassess nuclear safety in the shadow of what happened in Japan.
