Since Karen Maute’s proposed 25-mile uranium mining ban was defeated, you’d hope that the topic was dead and buried, eh? Wrong. Tuesday night, Marshall Ecker will try and get the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors to pass a 20-mile ban. Second verse, same as the first.
Here’s a look at the proposed resolution…
Now, my turn…
Whereas, since the 25 mile ban was a stupid-ass idea, this 20-mile ban is a stupid-ass idea.
Whereas, since the Dillon Rule would make this unconstitutional in about 3.71 seconds, this 20-mile ban is a stupid-ass idea.
Whereas, since the anti-uranium doom-and-gloomers want to preemptively ban something that may turn out to be good, this 20-mile ban is a stupid-ass idea.
Whereas, since Karen Maute lost before and should lose again, this 20-mile ban is a stupid-ass idea.
Whereas, since Southside Concerened Citizens tries to intimidate through resolutions like this, this 20-mile ban is a stupid-ass idea.
Be it hereby resolved, that the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors will soundly reject this stupid-ass idea and finally take a stand like Fred Ingram, who says that let’s see what an independent study says.
Be it further resolved, that the anti-uranium mining people of the Southside Concerned Citizens quit using using Chicken-Little hyperbole to scare weak-minded people into believing that uranium mining will definitely destroy Southside Virginia for 82,174 years.
Given under my hand today this 18th of January, 2010.
