Re: Kathy Griffin teams up with isisisisis....

What she did was wrong, stupid, completely unfunny and lacking in any artistic merit whatsoever. I'd be surprised if she has any career whatsoever after this. But a big difference between the right and left is that the left globally condemned her for it and CNN fired her immediately. They didn't wa...

Entergy pays about 10 million in taxes per year. That's gone in in 2019. This project, if approved, will pay about 3 million per year. Plus construction jobs building a facility near Pilgrim. It won't all be gone, just most of it. Another big impact will be the loss of good paying jobs (over 100K) ...
