UPDATE

"Apparently Barack Obama is also taking a vacation from the facts, ignoring his own votes in support of the Yucca Mountain project. Either Barack Obama is too inexperienced to understand that his votes on the floor of the United States Senate are recorded for Americans to review, or he's simply showing incredible hypocrisy." ---Tucker Bounds, spokesman John McCain 2008

In 2005, Barack Obama Voted Twice To Fund The Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository. "Passage of the bill that would provide $31.2 billion in fiscal 2006 for energy and water development projects, including $5.3 billion for the Army Corps of Engineers and $25 billion for the Energy Department. It also would provide $577 million for the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository." (H.R. 2419, CQ Vote #172: Passed 92-3: R 50-3; D 41-0; I 1-0, 7/1/05, Obama Voted Yea; H.R. 2419, CQ Vote #321: Adopted 84-4: R 48-2; D 35-2; I 1-0, 11/14/05, Obama Voted Yea)--from the McCain campaign.

Typical republican Mc Conn wants to eat his cake and put nuclear waste in somebody elses backyard.

Hopefully the ad is running full tilt in Nevada!

Obama is too inexperienced to be running for president. He was only in the senate for about 100 days and he has the voting record of a green kid who doesn't understand the issues. McCain is right -- Barack probably doesn't even realize that all his votes are in the public record -- Can't argue with the facts.

McCain backs Yucca because it is the best scientifically, not because "its not in his backyard". The US needs nuclear if we want to move to clean fuels, we are behind most other industrialized nations on nuclear. Yucca is the best for now, and hopefully a better plan will come later.

Obama, once again, shows his actions to be based on political expediency. Just more proof he is untrustworthy.

I think about the obama McCain is right.The president was not experienced.

Nevada Drug Addiction

Intervention is the most powerful tool for families who want to help a loved one who is struggling with alcoholism and drug addiction.Alcoholics and addicts are our family members and friends. Although we see the addiction, they cannot. When we offer treatment, they refuse. When we talk to them, they blame us or someone else. It begins to feel hopeless, but it's not.This website will show you how to take action.Intervention requires new information. Learn for yourself, then ask other family members to join you. Once everyone is educated, you can make a family decision about intervention. If you decide to move ahead, planning and preparation are your keys to success. Here's an intervention checklist.
