      instead of telling people how their quest to avoid nuclear meltdown is horrible because it enables racists to shaft latinos in Arizona, why not use your extensive legal knowledge to come up with a suggestion for shutting down this plant?

      the company voluntarily entered into a contract that required it to obey state authorities.

      If I signed a contract that said my nuclear power plant had to be approved bye Charliehall before I could operate it, it would be absurd to turn around and try to weasel out of that contract.

      Federal preemption is not an issue because the state does not pretend authority -- the company VOLUNTARILY ACCEPTED state authority.

      I want to limit the power of government. Specifically, I want to limit the power of government to create artificial superpeople and give them the same rights as human beings.
