Let's Go Nuclear USA!

Posted By on Sat, Mar 20, 2010 at 9:46 AM

Thanks, Captain Al "Chop-o-Matic" Melvin. In a recent interview in The Explorer, the senator continues to push for nuclear power to pay for education, but also offers up what will soon by our biggest resource in the Grand Canyon state: prisoners:

"We would have to convince the citizens of Arizona that it's as safe a process as I know it is. It's a safe process. The key is if we have the political will, and step up to the plate and be THE state that will do this.

OK, I get it now. It's so much easier to muster up the political will for more nuclear facilities and private prisons than the political will to pay for schools and education.
