This is exactly why FTL's beloved state of Californication have to buy power from the bemoaned state of Texas....they need more than they make, and while building nuclear power plants would cure the problem in short order, nobody wants them in their back yard.
Eventually, these idiotic baby boomers who have ruined the country over the past 5 decades will die off and we won't have to worry about how stupid movies have resulted in baby-booming activists whose actions have resulted in the decline of America.
"The China Syndrome" scared these potheaded dolts into activism against nuclear power - Texas' energy industry thanks you.
"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" caused hearts to bleed, state-run mental hospitals to close, and young men like Timothy Souders suffering from manic depression to die in a Michigan jail last year. He was lucky, at least he had a roof over his head and was being fed - most people who would have otherwise been in state-run hospitals are now "homeless".
It's gonna be great when they start dying off. Hemp-flavored decisions like Roe v. Wade will be overturned so that we can remind impressionable kids that there are consequences to your actions (meaning you should think before you act, not after). Lessons like these aren't commonplace anymore, and I think it's fair to say the baby boomers and their feel-good stupidity have had their chance to guide the nation long enough.
Thanks a lot mom & dad, you Jane Fonda-sympathizing 50's-era morons. Get in the friggin' ground already, you've fucked it up enough for the rest of us.
