About my Blog
So please let me know what you think of my Articles & Columns, and let other conservatives know about my blog.
Quick Note: I only link to wikipedia articles that I have checked out and are used only for reference material.
Welcome to my blog, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom. The name of this blog comes from my middle name and the historical & biblical figure King Solomon. This group is dedicated to conservatism, and I invite all conservatives to join, I really don’t mind non-conservatives joining. All I expect is a respectful debate. So tell everyone you know.

Interestingly, now that I think about this, it kind of reminds me of that scene in Ghostbusters 2, with the Ghostbusters digging a hole in the middle of the road. Just a thought.
I do think though they have a good chance of an acquittal or hung jury.
At this point its not the US Military that I am afraid of repeating these mistakes, its the Obama Administration who doesn't get it, as Zell Miller said about John Karry in his Speech at the 2004 Republican National Convention, I ask the same "This is the man who wants to be the Commander in Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces? U.S. forces armed with what? Spitballs?" We will be playing catch up agin if we don't slap down this Progressive Movement and the pansies in government when it comes to our Military and Brave Soldiers. These are the same types that let our ships in Pearl Harbor have no fuel.
Tell Congress and the Obama Administration dont follow in the steps of Neville Chamberlain and Jimmy Carter, allow the Millitary to get and develop the weapons it needs, And bring back the National Missile Defense!
If you haven't all ready check out a similar post I have on this subject, Something Disturbing.
In case you want to relive Zell Miller's Speech here are the links to it, its in three parts, Pt 1 of 3, Pt 2 of 3, Pt 3 of 3.
And if you are wondering about what Japan was developing try this website out, Hikoki: 1946.
Also, this website might also be of interest, Luftwaffe 46, about Germany's advanced aircraft designs.
I first saw this on Fox News the other day.
This is the problem in the Middle East if you are a Christian or Jew you literally have a target painted on you, and if you dare leave Islam then its even worse for you. Untill the moderate forces of Islam root out the extremists nothing is realy going to change in the War on Terror.

The man was very close to being buried alive.
I just know there is a lot more waiting in the wings to come out on this. I really don't see this as some kind of Watergate.
Really it was just boring, the commentary on fox afterword was more interesting, he's just like one of those old move monsters he looks interesting initially but it quickly becomes apparent its all hype.
Anything more on his speech would just be a waste.
First I want to cover some basics for the general public, first a nuclear power plant produces power from steam, basically it’s a high-tech steam engine, the standard reactor produces power by converting water to steam to run the power generators. There are two types of these reactors the Pressurized Water Reactor and the Boiling Water Reactor the two methods run on a similar principle of steam power except the Pressurized Reactor keeps water under pressure so that it heats, but does not boil, water from the reactor and the water in the steam generator that is turned into steam never mix, and the Boiling Reactor actually boils the water, and is converted to steam, and then recycled back into water by a part called the condenser, to be used again (I have included diagrams of both reactor courtesy of the federal government), this is where the dirty secret comes in to play the approximated fuel efficiency of a water cooled reactor is less than 1%, yes that’’s right less then 1%, if this was a car, truck, or SUV they would be demanding they improve that rating. But they don’’t, first they have no love for any kind nuclear technology, especially the left.
Pressurized Water Reactor
Boiling Water Reactor
Now I am going to tell you about the greatest nuclear reactor technology, in my opinion, that we might have today, if the left hadn’’t killed it. It’’s called the Integral Fast Reactor, IFR for short, and it has a fuel efficiency of 99%, the secret to this efficiency it used liquid sodium as a coolant. Why is that important? If you were to think of the fuel of a nuclear reactor as made up of sugar and run water through it you get the idea, the water depletes the fuel at an accelerated rate, while liquid sodium doesn’t. Now any one who’s taken highschool chemistry knows what happens when sodium comes in contact with water, an explosive reaction, I will go into more detail about that later in this article. Now there are several benefits of cooling a reactor with liquid sodium, the traditional water-cooled reactors the core must be maintained at a high pressure to keep the water liquid at high temperatures, while in contrast, the IFR has a liquid metal cooled reactor, the core could operate at close to ambient pressure, dramatically reducing the danger of a loss of coolant accident. The entire reactor core, heat exchanges and primary cooling pumps are immersed in a pool of liquid sodium, making a loss of primary coolant extremely unlikely, and the coolant loops are also designed to allow for cooling through natural convection, meaning that in the case of a power loss or unexpected reactor shutdown, the heat from the reactor core would be sufficient to keep the coolant circulating even if the primary cooling pumps were to fail, this is what caused the Chernobyl disaster.
Now the primary safety disadvantage of using liquid sodium as coolant comes from sodium's chemical reactivity, liquid sodium is extremely flammable and ignites spontaneously on contact with air or water. Leaking sodium pipes could give rise to sodium fires, or explosions if the leaked sodium comes into contact with water, in order to reduce the risk of explosions following a leak of water from the steam turbines, the IFR, had an extra intermediate coolant loop between the reactor and the turbines. The purpose of this loop was to ensure that any explosion following accidental mixing of sodium and turbine water would be limited to the secondary heat exchanger and not pose a risk to the reactor. The requirement of such an extra loop significantly adds to the cost of the reactor, but the cost can be made up in other ways, for example the current controversy you may have heard of is the storing of nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain, well the IFR reactor produces much less waste than current water cooled reactors, and can even consume the waste of water cooled reactors as fuel. Now the waste products of IFR reactors either have a short half-life, this means that it quickly "burns out" and ends up relatively safe, or a long half-life, which means that they are unlikely to emit a significant amount of protons except from very large quantities. The volume of highly-radioactive waste is 1/20th the volume as compared to a water cooled plant of the same size. The high level waste from reprocessing is highly radioactive for only 400 years instead of 10,000 years. One more by product of this kind of reactor is sodium-24, it is highly radioactive and decays to form magnesium-24, now it’’s half- life is only 15 hours, so its not a long term hazard, indeed it has medical applications, either way it requires the use of the in termediat coolant loop between the reactor and the turbines.
To further anger you I want to give you some additional data, first a rod from a water cooled nuclear power plant stops producing energy after eighteen months or one year and six months, now if that is what one percent produces, what would a more efficient system produce? Just look at it from a basic math problem, if 1% = 18 months, then in theory if you multiply that by 100% you get 1,800 months or 150 years of possible energy that is lost due to the use of an inefficient system. Now is this 100% accurate, I don’t know but my point is important enough to ask the question if we switched the technology just how much more power could we get out of a rod. Also a depleted rod has to be cooled on site, in a cooling pool inside the plant, for several years until it can be safely moved to be stored else where. Also according to the inventor Charles Till of the IFR, no radioactivity will be released under any circumstance, under even very, very unlikely circumstances which would lead to a mess in other reactors, the IFR will not even incur damage.
Now this is the story of how the politicians stopped this technology, the original research on the IFR began in 1984 with the Experimental Breeder Reactor-II, or EBR-II for short, after the election of Bill Clinton in 1992 and the appointment of Hazel O'Leary as the Secretary of Energy, there was pressure from the top to cancel the IFR. Sen. John Kerry (D, MA) and O'Leary led the opposition to the reactor, arguing that it would be a threat to non-proliferation efforts, this isn't true the IFR fuel cycle has some design features that make proliferation more difficult. Eventualy funding for the reactor was slashed, and it was ultimately canceled in 1994 by S.Amdt. 2127 to H.R. 4506. Link to the vote here.
I know this article has been a bit on the technical side but I hope you understand it and will spread the word on our Nuclear Power System.

Now the reason I am bringing this up is in advance of an article I am working on US Defense and our military weapons development, the point of this is to scare you in to realizing just what the risks of letting someone else to develop better weapons then us. You are the only ones who can stop the pansy policies of the liberals and progressives.
The fact that these liberals and progressives continue to try and dismantle the American culture just shows how disturbing this is, in case you are wondering why Texas is important, the Texas schools are one of the biggest buyers of textbooks, and if they make the books more "progressive" the books the other states will follow suite. So make sure that you check your child’s textbooks for liberal and progressive propaganda.
See the story here.
So next time you see or hear someone with a similar opinion put them in place.

Here's a link to the Pat Robertson statement,
and a related opinion link,
And the White-house's opinion of Pat Robertson’s Statement,
Wednesday, January 13, 2010
Amendment _____: Eminent Domain.
(This amendment was proposed on ________ ______, _______, and ratified on ________ ______, _______.)
Section 1a. The government is forbidden to take one person's property by Eminent Domain or any other government action and transfer it to another for their privet use. with the
Section 1b. When the government does take a person's property for public use without fair payment. The property will be appraised by a third party appraiser agreed to by both sides, if both sides are unable to agreed on a third party appraiser, an independent abertrator will decide on the third party appraiser.
Section 1c. The following are considered public use, roads & highways, public parks, public libraries, schools, post offices, government offices, court houses, police stations, and other public facilities of a similar nature.
Section 2a. When the government does take a person's property for public use it can not be sold to a privet party, until ten years and one day after the issue is settled.
Section 2b. Should the government take a person's property for public use and sell, lease, rent, or give it to another before ten years and one day, the person, corporation, or heirs are entitled to fifty percent of the current value of the property. The government shall not be immune to legal action against it.
Section 3. This article applies to federal, state, and locale governments.
Section 4. __________________________________________________________.
I would like some conservatives opinion of them, the first one is an affirmation of the second amendment, designed so leberals can't even make a ridiculous argumant the people don't have a right to guns. I haven't given it an Amendment number or proposed & ratification dates yet, and section 3 would simpley be an must be ratified by so many years or something similar. Also this story is not set on Earth so Confederacy is simply the way we might use US.
Amendment _____: Gun Rights for Citizens and Legal Residents
(This amendment was proposed on ________ ______, _______, and ratified on ________ ______, _______.)
Section 1. All Citizens and Legal Residents of the Confederacy have the right to keep and bear arms, this shall not be infringed by any part of the government.
Section 2a. The following are forbidden to be owned in the Confederacy by privet individuals in the Territories of the Confederacy, any military combat vehicle, military aircraft, and military naval vessels, or any heavy military grade firearms or full auto fire, or machine guns.
Section 2b. Museums and privet collectors are immune to this section, if they have a permit from the ATF, priced at $25, to be adjusted for inflation, + 1% for each vehicle, aircraft, or vessel in their collection that would be covered by section 2a. All such items that have been either out of service, commission, or have been considered obsolete by the Confederate Military for twenty five years are immune to the 1% addition.
Section 2c. All weapons designated by the Confederate Military as not to be owned by any individual or group will be illegal to own.
Section 3. ___________________________________________________________.
If any one has not seen the move Demolition Man or read the book Brave New World you should check them out. Freedom is about more then speech or religion, while I don't like the "alternative lifestyles" I don't want to ban them, I just don't want to give them the special rights they claim to deserve, or have their lifestyle shoved down my throat. Do the food Food Nazi's even realize the diet of people throughout the ages, for most of civilization salt was the only way to preserve food. Even when their ideas enrage the public they just write us off. The Tea Parties are a good start, but the people need to send a message to their local governments as well.
And as to the issue of other peoples lifestyles (at least when it comes to diet), maybe if you stopped listening to the Liberals on Health care and listened to those of us on the Right you might just get It. Lastly look up the Prohibition Era in the US and then apply that to Salt, Sugar, and transfats. (Note, I have a different opinion on the war on drugs compared to that of the Prohibition of Alcohol. I will explain this later.)
