Nuclear Test Ban NOW!

Today is Thursday, 9 April 2009.

Next 13 October will mark 10 years since the Repugnican-controlled Senate voted not to ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which would outlaw all testing of nuclear weapons.

The two main reasons then given by Replutocrats were: 1) how can the USA/USE be sure it can detect nuclear detonations of less than a kiloton, and 2) how can the USA/USE be certain, if a President ever decides to commit nuclear genocide, that Our Bombs will function as intended, and agonizingly scrub the majority of life from the planet, without constant testing?

Yeah, bummer: what if they gave a holocaust and nobody came?

Wouldn’t it be great if childhood malnutrition were ended, and blood-drunk nuclear genocidists had to give a bake sale to buy Bombs?

According to an article yesterday in the Washington Post, Joe Biden will lead the ratification effort, as he did in 1999.

It is not yet known when the Administration will present the treaty to the Senate, as a campaign to develop public support must first be mounted.

On this date in 1865, slaver and traitor Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia, thus effectively ending the War of white Southern Treason.

On this date in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the great Lutheran theologian and member of the German Resistance, was murdered by the SS.

On this date in 1959, NASA presented the first astronaut class, the Mercury Seven.

On this date in 1998, Eleanor Roosevelt Calico Cat was born.
