Question : "Is he the only one with guts to speak his mind in public? Is he the only one convinced we have been sc....ed?"
Answer: He is the only one out of 8000 that has the nerve to speak for the mass majority. The rest are cowards including myself.
I'd prefer to post on the blog and let the world view what's going as ( anon ). In the meantime after viewing the talk given in Washington, DC and GM's most recent tap dance of non-truths and political double talk I've invited every congressman and women to visit one particular topic on the blog. That topic would be entitled April Testimony Reveals Culprit where they too can listen to the testimony given by the three director for themselves. It's my hopes they'll in turn send the URL to all representatives nationally, so they too may understand the consequences of privatizing the national labs; and shortly afterwards execute a proclamation to terminate the contracts of both LANS and LLNS; directing those in charge to the unemployment lines pursuant to forfeiture of all retirement and medical benefits due.
If any of you care to join in, you can find your representative here. Only YOU can put an end to this madness and reverse the injustices that have been done. For all of you that have been laid off, I would hope you too would join in the fight to take back everything these people have taken from you and to assure their demise by any legal avenue or venue you wish. The pen is in fact mightier than the sword and good lawyers are available if you've had enough.
For me it's a matter of feeling as if I've devoted my entire life to the government for NOTHING and until I see proof there's another underlined motive for privatizing the national labs other than assuring the mutual destruction of everyone livelihood by virtue of taking their UCRP and dividing the classes of the rich and poor, I will not be satisfied, and will continue to move forward with my assumptions and reasonings.
Knowing this transition could have been avoided by simply transferring just (2 weeks ) of the Iraqi wars budget to cover all three national labs financial concerns is ridiculous and totally illogical. In conjunction with this fiasco I have a gut feeling NNSA is not telling us everything, nor are they reporting the facts to the Representative of the United States of America. It's as if NNSA is trying to pull a fast one over our representatives eyes by reallocating funds from where they were to be spent, to their favorite projects, or to assure ( NO ONE in NNSA ) was laid off or fired, while they witness 4,500 people from three national labs hit the streets knowing there's more to come in FY-09. So, this brings another question to mind. Just how many NNSA personnel were laid off or fired during the past two years because of budgetary issue. What to bet the answer is ( ZERO ). If this is the case I personally hope the leader of NNSA is found guilty of all charges and is issued a cell block with an appropriate serialized uniform.
At this point in my life and being a subject of this transition I trust no one in these times, until it can be proved that everything that has been done is on the up and up. Until then I hope the transition of LLNL and LANL remain on the radar with the same inquisitiveness as the JFK assassination and UFO's, and is pursued by as many people who believe Kennedy was taken out by our own, continuing the investigation until the truth is found. When it is, I want justice served and reimbursement for all losses to all involved.
IMHO this transition is the worse ploy I've seen in my entire life. It's so unbelievable it's as if those who authorized the labs to go private were in fact undercover KGB agents working for the goal of destroying the nations nuclear complex. If I were the FBI I would seriously consider running a sting operation and check the backgrounds of every corporate member extensively, just for pure self satisfaction of finding any unknown acquaintances or discoveries that may reveals such an involvement. It's mine boggling for me to believe we have anyone in congress or the senate so stupid as to approve this transition.
Someone should write a book.
