Question about nuclear waste disposal

I live in S.C. near the savannah river site where there is a lot of nuclear waste stored. I know a lot of people who work there and I live upriver from it so I am not exactly worried about a nuclear waste leak but I was reading a story on how long it takes plutonium to go away and they said we cant launch the stuff into space because rockets fail and thats to expensive.

A Man Coming Over The Hill, Singing – Dave Weigel on Rand Paul's trip to South Carolina

In the Carolinas, Rand Paul confronts a new war in the Middle East — and the voters who rejected his father.

Rand Paul usually starts with a joke; it relieves the tension that’s never there. On Tuesday, Sept. 30, the junior Senator from Kentucky is running a little late, but a University of South Carolina lecture room is already overfull, stragglers fighting for space behind a row of TV cameras. A few college Democrats are in the room, but as listeners, not hecklers.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) thinking about Running for President in 2016.

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016.

In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said.

You thought it couldn't be worse than the Crawford shooting.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — An unarmed man shot by a South Carolina trooper during a traffic stop repeated one question through his anguished cries as he lay wounded, waiting for an ambulance: “Why did you shoot me?”

In a video captured by a dashboard camera in the patrol car, then-Trooper Sean Groubert told Levar Jones it was because he “dove head first” back into his car. Jones said he was just reaching for his license as Groubert had instructed. Groubert’s lawyer says the officer justifiably feared for his life. I wouldn't necessarily say worse because this. Guy luckily survived.
