Yucca Mountain – Sacred Native Land & Proposed Nuclear Waste Dump

Once again, the federal government proves itself as trustworthy as a two-headed rattler on methamphetamine.
“Yucca Mountain and surrounding lands were central in the lives of the Western Shoshone and Southern Paiute peoples, who shared them for religious ceremonies, resource uses, and social events; Yucca Mountain continues to be considered sacred by the Shoshone people living today.” (Wikipedia)
So sacred in fact, that the U.S. Government wants to place a nuclear waste dump smack dab in the middle of it. Yep. You heard me. Land sacred to the tribes, chock full of spent nuclear waste. How does that grab you?
