America's Radioactive Secret

Oil-and-gas wells produce nearly a trillion gallons of toxic waste a year. An investigation shows how it could be making workers sick and contaminating communities across America.


A bit of a long read but worth it.


Life makes people sick.

Actually, no it doesn't.

Natural expose to the environment makes you sick. That includes radiation.

Increase exposures and you increase "life making you sick".

Seriously, corporations could burn your house down with your family in it and you'd still thank them for it.

Don't worry.

Trump is gutting water safety regulations. But on the bright side, we won't have to worry about Social Security running out!

It's only fair, were it not for corporations I probably wouldn't even have a house.

How come I don't ever hear of a Supercharger station having a radiation problem?

I'm tired of the news saying stuff like "could include" or "could be" or "might be" or "possibly".

Stop phrasing the news that stupid people hear and think it's happening and not a possibility.

there's a third rail of US foreign policy you aren't supposed to know anything about because you'd be just like Hitler if you did...goy.
Definitely don't look into USS Liberty , or the Lavon affair for starters.

covering for isntreal certainly qualifies as a "radioactive secret", even if it weren't about the rogue country's undeclared nukes

the scope of international terrorism that the rogue state of isntreal has gotten away with, aided and abetted by its client state, the USA, is unconscionable.

the top rebbe of Greatest Ally(TM) described gentiles as "subhuman"; prohibition against murder doesn't apply to gentiles (who are not human), Jews should theoretically be allowed to "seize" an organ from a gentile if it's a matter of survival, etc.
he seemed to be popular at the time:

*THE* "radioactive" secret which is being hidden from you isn't what OP posted. The only truly (figuratively) radioactive secret is that Greatest Ally has been systematically exploiting this country, leeching off it, and waiting with bated breath until America turns into a sucked-dry husk and blows away.

from the huffpost article:
As noted in Haaretz, Netanyahu seems to boast of his knowledge of the US by saying, "I know what America is. America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won't get in their way."

at least isntrealis are allowed to criticize their government. We don't have that right (read about anti-BDS legislation) here in america.

Because it's simply an energy transfer point for fossil fuels burnt elsewhere.

How did this get turned into an anti-Israel screed?
