Look For Security At Indian Point To Worsen

NRC, New York Government On Mental Vacation?
Security at Indian Point with a wink and nod is rumored to let the Mistresses of certain high ranking employees into the plant grounds, so it's not as if Security at the plant is anything to write home about...further, a study of security at the plant has lead GNB to believe it quite possible to successfully attack the plant, to take down the reactors without actually entering the physical grounds of Entergy's failing reactors on the Hudson (report coming soon to this blog)...meanwhile, as we begin to bring life back to Green Nuclear Butterfly, it seems that the State of New York is eliminating all budgeting for guard troops at Nuclear Plants in the state including Indian Point. Why not hang a Terrorist Welcome sign on the front gate at Indian Point's easily attacked, potentially destroyed plant? Talk about letting our guard down...Neil Sheehan must be pissing himself!

Newsday – (New York) National Guard troops pulled from nuclear plants. National Guard troops that have stood guard at four upstate New York nuclear power plants since shortly after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks are being withdrawn this summer. A spokesman for the state Division of Military and Naval Affairs tells WSTM-TV in Syracuse that there was not any money included in the state budget for keeping the troops at nuclear plants near Oswego and Ginna. A spokeswoman for Constellation Energy, which operates the two nuclear plants at Nine Mile Point in Scriba, says it was notified that the troops will be withdrawn from there this summer. The Division of Military and Naval Affairs says about 100 troops are stationed at the four plants, and deployments at others in the state are under review.

Eco Rapist-Green Manure...Meet Mattel's Barbie BCause Collection

The Barbie Boobs at Mattel Bring You GREEN BARBIE...OH PLEASE!
OH MY FREAKING GOD...talk about Green Washing at a whole new level! Seems that Mattel is wanting to get in on the profits of being percieved as GREEN, so they have launched a whole new line of GREEN BARBIE Crap available at Toys "R" Us stores near you! Here is the basic scoop on the breast implanted doll (produced in Communist CHINA) and her new line of ECO FRIENDLY add ons.

They take the SCRAPS from other Barbie fashions, and use non union CHINESE labor to produce a whole new line of Barbie Fashions created from LEFTOVERS! (Hmmm, Leftover Barbie) These patchwork pieces of ECO-WARE™ (or is that ECO-WEAR™)shit-TA are marketed as the Barbie™BCause line to make GREEN PARENTS believe that Mattel cares! (about profits) This boggling Green Washed collection includes such favorites as the Barbie™BCause hat($9.99), tote bag ($9.99), hobo purse ($10.99) and the must have ROLL CASE at $19.99! OH MY GAWD, I can hear the cash registers ringing green as I type this blog entry! Does Eco Chick know about this, has Summer Rayne Oakes rang the Green Wash alarm over at Vanity Fair, has someone notified Kennedy and the folks over at Riverkeeper? Maybe Mattel can donate one to each of the employees at the Indian Point Nuclear Facility that is leaking tritium and strontium 90 into the Hudson River here in NY! They could get Congressman John Hall to make the presentation of the toys, give him another chance to repeat his original campaign promise, "I'll do everything I can to close down Indian Point." Presidential Candidate Barack Obama can get in on the act by accepting a complete set of these Eco Green Washed Barbie™BCause for each of his daughters at the event, extolling the virtues of Nuclear as his staff counts the campaign contributions that can be tracked back to Exelon!
