French Advise People to Avoid Milk and Some Food

A French research agency is advising pregnant women and children to avoid milk, rain water, and certain foods for fear of radiation contamination. The radiation levels measured are high enough to be dangerous according to them. Similar finding have been reported in America, though no safety concerns have been voiced by the government. People need to research this themselves and decide whether to drink contaminated milk and water or not. The truth is that no level of ingested radiation is safe. Exposure to radiation is one thing, but ingesting radiation is another. I used to work in the nuclear industry. We were very careful not to ingest radioactive particles. once inside your body, the radiation is released constantly until the particles die out, which can take a lifetime. Imagine being in a low level X-ray for the rest of your life. I will keep you posted on this.

Budget Cuts Are A Joke

Please, our congressmen are total buffoons and so are we if we let them get away with the crap they claim is a budget cut. Seriously? $38.5 billion out of a $4 trillion dollar budget. That is 0.96%. Less than one tenth of one percent. An average family could save that much by not taking the kids to McDonalds. I was hoping for at least a 3% cut. Even that is a drop in the bucket. that would have cut $120 billion from the budget. The Democrats would have died. Even a blind man can see that 0.96% is chump change, and any American who thinks that helps anything is a chump.
