TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY ANTI-NUKE ADVOCATES DEMAND TO MEET WITH SEN. CLAIRE McCASKILL!!!
In Kansas City, Missouri anti-nuke advocates have been increasing their profile and stepping up their game over the past few years.
They LOUDLY objected to a recent nuke component manufacturing plant and even attempted to come up with some alternative uses for the site.
Recently, an effort/ordinance to that would have required Kansas City to reject biz from the nuke industry was scuttled by the City Council.
And let's not forget all of the protests against nuke component makers in the KCMO area.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY ANTI-NUKE ADVOCATES ARE AN EXCEEDINGLY VOCAL CONSTITUENCY AND NOW THEY WANT TO MEET WITH SENATOR CLAIRE McCASKILL DURING HER REELECTION BID!!!
Check the text of a recent e-mail blast sent out to Kansas City media this morning . . .
"Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri - Talk to your constituents"
"Thousands of Nuclear Weapons Workers, are politely asking the candidates for Senate/House of Representatives , in the United States Congress, that are serving the Districts housing Nuclear Weapons Complexes, to address the distress of their constituents. The Nuclear Weapons industry LINES THEIR POCKET WITH GREAT POLITICAL DONATIONS for influence, WHICH SUSTAIN THE industry, and contaminates their districts, kills their citizens (VOTERS)...And the candidate DUCKS AND DODGES the issues, to GIVE US THE CIVIL CURIOSITY OF FACE TO FACE DIALOG."
Like it or not, these old school hippies are now boomers with a great deal of time and influence that aren't as politically isolated as some might want to think.
Furthermore, one of the scariest prospects facing Prez Obama and his supporters like Sen. Claire is that Democrats will not be energized enough to come out in November.
Already in Kansas City the low primary turnout showed us that most registered voters in this cowtown just don't care enough about our Democracy to participate. So, the highly motivated and active KC anti-nuke crowd calling Sen. Claire out on this issue is an exceptionally important move by some of the Senator's most liberal constituents.
