State Of The Union Recap

--The only sensible thing Obama suggested was ending the ban on gays in the military, but he could've said something at the beginning of his term rather than wait this long. Probably just a ploy.

--Tonight: Obama proposes $10,000 tax credit to offset college costs.
Tomorrow: Average college tuition rises $10,001.

--Saying he hated the bank bailouts but they were necessary to save our economy is bullshit. Banks still are not lending money to businesses, and enabling them to do so was the rationale for the bailout. Now Obama wants to give more money to banks so they can lend money to businesses.

--A proposal to build more nuclear energy plants actually makes sense. I'm shocked he had it in him.

--His tie made me sad Christmas is over and peppermint-stick ice cream won't be available for another ten months. Everything else he said made me sad for potentially more important reasons.

REPUBLICAN RESPONSE BONUS: To demonstrate the GOP's longstanding commitment to women and minorities, they scored a twofer by posing a black woman onscreen just behind Virginia's governor Bob McDonald.

Since the Prez has brought it up, I'll just toss this out there for your information: If you'd care to learn what daily life in a US nuclear plant is actually like and how an accident might unfold, see my novel "Rad Decision", based on my 20+ years in the nuke industry. Nuclear has its good points and bad points, and this is a good introduction to them. It is free online at No advertising, no sponsors, no money for me.
