Ambassador Thomas Graham Jr. Testifies before the Committee on Foreign Affairs
The Reid bill? I have never put any faith in that but merely treated it as a happy bonus if it happens. I would bet it won't, in the near future. U.S. Congress won't even vote on the extension of tax cuts, but they are expected to meet, vote, and pass the spending of money on nuclear technology that is little understood? In the face of anti-gov spending and anti-incumbant sentiments, it's an up-hill struggle. The Thorium lobbyists are not yet up to speed. (Wait, are there any besides us and Kirk?) Chu has logic and science in his arsenal, but sadly those seem to be pea-shooter weapons in DC. I would love to be wrong. Our short term opportunities are overseas.
If sp gets to 4, I will reinvest the $6 surf and turf dinner for Greedy Gretchen and instead buy LTBR and stay home. Battle of the Network stars, Dynasty, Jergens, and a bottle of that new Lancers . . .
