"Imagine the Three Stooges with nukes"......Professor Michie Kaku on using a nuclear weapon to seal off the oil leak in the Gulf.
BP claims to be "encouraged" by it's latest effort to cap the massive oil leak caused by the sunken Deepwater Horizon drilling platform, as President Obama makes another visit to check on the progress- or lack there of- by the oil giant in the worst environmental disaster in US history.
Previously BP was encouraged by their effort to "top kill" the leak, before admitting failure last week. The latest plan, "cut and cap", will not stop the leak, only contain it until relief wells can be drilled. The United States government has handed BP a bill of $69 million for cost incurred so far....but obviously a price tag cannot be put on catastrophe of this magnitude.
Last night on COUNTDOWN Keith Olbermann hosted Prof. Michie Kaku of City College of New York, and discussed the idea of "nuking" the well to seal it.
Real journalists continue to lose their jobs as newspapers cut staff in record numbers. And while this is happening hucksters like Glenn Bec...

Welcome To My Neighborhood!
Its called "Useless Trivia and Mindless Rants". That's because I adhere to the principle that you can't please everyone, nor should you try to please everyone....so before anyone else rips this blog for being a waste of time or having faulty logic, I thought I'd beat them to the punch, and zing just a bit of self deprecating humor into the title....hey, some people think that's an endearing quality.
Seriously....I hope to entertain and maybe inform, and even teach the reader about a few subjects. And don't be alarmed by the political trappings you may see here. I'm upfront about my political beliefs and affiliations, but I don't wear my politics on my sleeve, and have and always will refuse to be locked into a rigid dogma. This is not really a political blog; its just disguised as one.
My model is probably CBS SUNDAY MORNING, a magazine format. I'll talk about news, sports, TV and films, about music, literature and pop culture, and about the famous and the infamous....and about some people who are out there trying to make a difference in a world that seems to get just a little tougher everyday.
Oh yes...there will be some politics as well.
So pour a cup of coffee, cut a piece of cheesecake.....and stick around for a few minutes.
Occupation- If you believe my conservative friends, I'm a pinko commie socialist out to destroy the very fabric of America's core beliefs.
Liberals think I'm an old school moderate Democrat, and that a guy my age needs to get his hair cut more often.
Just put away that broad brush....
I'm just a "Blue Jersey Guy" who happens to "Bleed Scarlet".
