Not enough chat about major concerns of the NNSA Labs

It is really amazing that the top posts here that involve the major concerns of the NNSA labs (i.e., nuclear weapons, proliferation, test ban treaties, nuclear strategy, nuclear material inventories, etc., get few if any comments, but let a comment appear that involves unions, the lab upper management, LLC contractors, benefits, salary, furloughs, etc appear, and all of a sudden, the blogosphere explodes! So much for the national laboratory employees being proud of or wanting to preserve their time-honored history of serving this country's national security, or concern for the direction our national security is taking. It's all about their personal gripes and desires for retribution, just a microcosm of US society of today. Sad.

I think it's an over-generalization to apply the conclusions (rightfully) distilled from this blog to all employees at LLNL, LANL, or other national labs.

I agree 100% with your conclusions. They just apply to the folks who frequent and choose to post on this blog. And if this weren't anonymous, we'd probably find that group to be a small one. You can see this pretty clearly from the repetitious rants, the deflection of every thread onto the same subjects, and use of the same words, similar bad grammar, and spelling in multiple postings.

That's a pretty disaffected, curmudgeonly, shallow bunch. But they're fun to whip up once in a while.

Only trolls, baiters, retirees, and those who cannot move on, are left here. Brilliant intellectuals they are not. Quite a few Ann Coulter Cultists here it seems. The good ones still in the labor pool have moved on to other jobs with better employers. So what you have left is to be expected. And yes, i'm a baiter.

Thanks for your honesty. My only concern is that you will succeed. If so, you are part of the problem.

And,pray tell, what problem would that be? One of your own making? Or, maybe of your own delusions?

Baiters bait trolls, extremists nut cases (both left and right wing), lab propagandists, etc. etc. Baiters aren't effective when you have threads with legitimate discussions. I think we're just in a lull period at the moment do its not surprising the postings and discussions lack much substance. But there are a few explosive issues in the pipeline though when it comes to the lab. When the time comes, the metrics for this blog will go through the roof.

Rant much?

No one cares about NNSA, what they do or what they have in stow for the labs. It's just a job now days with no future, no securty and no defined pension program. The labs are just a good stepping stone for the young to use and then move onto the private sector.

We have a bunch of very good master baiters on this blog. ;-)

Scooby, you've got to be kidding. You delete the one post that was to the point? No swearing, no name calling, and directly on topic! Jeez, how about revisiting your own rules.
