Nuclear Plant 50 Miles From Thomson. What Could Go Wrong?
I live in IL and a little closer to Thomson and Byron IL then I care to be at the moment. There are times I can see the cloud the Byron nuclear pant produces.
Obama is considering sending the worlds most dangerous men to our prison in Thomson IL. The people in Thomson are really hurting. When the prison was built the people were promised it would be full of prisoners and create many jobs. Some put their life savings into businesses only to end up losing everything because they foolishly believed the politicians.
Our military, taxpayer, hating Sen. Durbin is all for sending the terrorists to Thomson. His reasoning is, it will create thousands of jobs and because nothing has happen at Guantanamo Bay, that means nothing will happen at Thomson.
For one thing Guantanamo is surrounded by water with trained soldiers guarding them. Another thing, What will happen to property values in Thomson? Who would want to buy a house in a town that houses the worlds most dangerous men and have a bullseye painted on the whole town not to mention all surrounding towns. The jobs Durbin is talking about, is he saying the prisoners will guarded by civilians? Most important, there is no nuclear plant near Guantanamo.
The Byron nuclear plant is only 50 miles from Thomson. Even less by the way the bird flies. The nuclear plant would look like a real nice target to some pretty nasty men who would just love to put a little fear in the lives not to mention kill thousands of innocent civilians.
Talk about a perfect storm. Durbin and Obama are truly insane.
