Nuclear Madness and the Sacred Peace Walk
Why worry about nuclear weapons? Well, there are several good reasons. The nation is in deficit spending and on the verge of economic collapse. Las Vegas is suffering severely from this economic depression, the outcome of a war economy. Nuclear weapons are capital intensive and a tremendous economic drain on our nation. There are of course legal and moral reasons but in this city money talks. Funny how quiet it has become lately.
