What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

Have any of you had cancer?

Thumbs down

I think this thread can be closed at this point. Looks like any hopes of an intelligent conversation is out the window.

Where is the solution for nuclear waste? Folks have been trying to solve this for at least 60 years - how can we ethically proceed with nuclear power without a solution?

How are they going to clean up Rocky Flats? How are they going to clean up Hanford? The decommissioning of Yankee Rowe was finished in 2007 - how long until there is a problem? We'll see how things go at Vermont Yankee. And we'll see if we have any floods or storms or earthquakes that flummox some nuclear plant nearby where you live.

Neil, what's so funny about your latest comment: "peace, love and understanding"?

It's IRRELEVANT as much as it is laughable. It's a "blast from your past" citing the 1960's movement harking back to rose colored glasses and feelin' groovy. That's 40+ years behind the times, today. Apparently you are mired in obsolete, hippy culture. It's "old hat", old fellow.

Now here are a few relevant questions, particularly for those who think of cancer as one monolithic disease. What is cancer? How many types of cancer are there?

Reading this link may help educate:
How many different types of cancer are there? : Cancer Research UK : CancerHelp UK

It's time to quote another old, but more recent and relevant song: "What's LOVE got to do with it?"

I think this thread should stay open as long as civility is maintained. If you can't tolerate it, you should access the 'ignore thread' feature or simply exercise self-restraint by not viewing it. If you find it disturbing, remember this: no one is forcing you to read it.

Neil never answers those who question his agenda.

He reacts with a blitz of more (often inane but provocative) questions, such as those in his previous post, to put his opposition on the defensive.

That's the activist strategy: Never play defense. Never engage in meaningful discussion or respond to questions. Always play offense. Ignore any facts supportive of the contrary viewpoint.

At this point having an "Activist Corral" might be useful.
