OK when do we hold JANE FONDA accountable for shooting her idiot mouth off and causing so many of the worlds biggest problems?
Look how many died in Vietnam after we pulled out? She was instrumental in deceiving the US. Her and John Kerry (did you know he was in Vietnam?) who was there for 3 months, got 3 purple hearts, and "committed atrocities"
And how about that stupid "China Syndrome" movie that convinced us all how EEEEEEEeeevil nuclear power was? We could have been a lot less dependant on foreign oil, and needed 2 less Gulf Wars (its all about OIL don'tcha know?) if it were not for her part in that.
Then there was those exercise videos- did we really need to see all those fat people in spandex???? I could have lived without that whole decade...
“What I dont understand is how Fonda and Lemmon knew there would be a meltdown at Three Mile Island the same year The China Syndrome was released. Of course, the movie was probably made before the meltdown occurred in 1979.”
Yes - I saw the movie some time before the real incident occurred. You know Three Mile Island is in Pennsylvania, right? If you listen to the dialog in the film, at one point, one of the characters is describing the possible damage, and says something like, ‘It will leave a hole about the size of [are you ready?] PENNSYLVANIA’... Spooky.
I don’t recall much radioactivity being released. In fact, a dosimeter located in downtown York, PA, about 15 miles away, registered no change in radioactivity during the whole “crisis”.
This issue requires more technical knowledge to evaluate than I possess. The NRC fact sheet on the Three-Mile Accident says the following:
There was “A significant release of radiation from the plants auxiliary building”
And “Very low levels of radionuclides could be attributed to releases from the accident. However, comprehensive investigations and assessments by several well-respected organizations have concluded that in spite of serious damage to the reactor, most of the radiation was contained and that the actual release had negligible effects on the physical health of individuals or the environment.”
More directly to the issue I raised is that what I was wondering about was the connection between the left-wing movie, The China Syndrome, and the incident at Three-Mile Island.
“More directly to the issue I raised is that what I was wondering about was the connection between the left-wing movie, The China Syndrome, and the incident at Three-Mile Island.”
More likely it was a tragic coincidence that caused people to panic more than the incident warranted, and pretty much shut down the nuclear energy industy.
Actually, I don’t think I have any photographs of this cousin-in-law from that time frame - or this one either to be honest. - On second thought, I guess she wasn’t “hot” enough after all to intimidate the hippies into not protesting the nuclear power plants.
You see, we are sort of the “country backwoods cousins” who aren’t in her who’s who and what’s what and who’s got what social league.
I had a dream the night before TMI about some sort of a disaster involving “three white towers” or that was the impression I had about the dream. It wasn’t clear enough to be a warning about anything, but was just odd. (I don’t have prophetic dreams, so perhaps it was just the pizza I had for supper.)
I have been saying for years that John F. Kerry (D-Hanoi) and Fonda should STILL be in jail.
They will never have to answer for their cr## (because they are leftists) unless something happens to make them answer.
Sadly, I don’t see that happening.
you are right- how can he come back from Vietname after only 3 MONTHS and claim to be an expert on ‘atrocities’ and even ADMIT TO DOING THEM HIMSELF and no one ask him... um..OK what ‘atrocities’ did you commit?
This toon was a boob and coward even then.
In the only actual battle he was in he ran like a wuss and left one of his men stranded when he fell overboard- ANOTHER boat had to fish hi9m out of the water.
UNFIT FOR COMMAND (the book) was right
