I see nobody wants to actually take the question on ...

HA!
Although I can certainly justify in my mind reading Market-Ticker while at work, I find difficulty in justifying using company time to reply, so I never have. And have been itching to reply since this morning.

Your exercise for the comment section is when do you get alarmed enough to stop this from continuing and what will you do if the government refuses to stop upon a mere request, claiming bipartisan consensus that this is a good program, a good idea, and that it simply refuses to stop the mining and placement of each additional gram.

Questions that need answering:

1)when do you get alarmed enough to stop this from continuing.

2)what will you do if the government refuses to stop upon a mere request.

Not really a question, but an addition parameter:

3)claiming bipartisan consensus that this is a good program, a good idea, and that it simply refuses to stop the mining and placement of each additional gram.

The brief scenario:

The government in a "bipartisan" fashion decides that every day it will pay people to mine and refine one gram of Uranium 235, and will stack it on top of all the others it has mined thus far. It says this will provide jobs. The place where it does so is heavily guarded, but in the middle of the city, and the place in which these grams are to be placed is approximately 2' on a side.
It will do this forever, it claims.

Parameters:

1)Pay every day to mine, refine, store and guard a product.

2)Product. Uranium 235

3)2 foot on a side, so assuming height also, a cube 2x2x2

4)Bipartisan Everyone In Power agrees.

5)Stored in a populated area.

6)Will never end.

First, sorry to all those who are saying exponential, this is lineal, It will eventually get to any point the exponent does, it will just take much longer.

Given the parameters, I am making assumptions here. The Uranium 235, is to indicate something that is very dangerous, but it could be anything. Whatever it is it has a dire impact on the population.

There is no outflow, only additions so even if it were not dangerous, there is a physical limitation to how much can be acquired. And the powers that be say they will always make sure it is added to no matter what you say or do.

Since I am assuming Uranium 235 is only a place holder to indicate something dangerous, I will change it from Uranium to illegals, or undocumented residents for the precious snowflakes.

Question 1 When do I become alarmed? Myself, about 25 years ago.

Question 2 What will I do when they refuse to put an end to it? Damn good question. I have tried to reason with people, but I have come to the conclusion that the masses are willfully ignorant and willing to listen to the lies.

Question 3 Claiming they know best they are unwilling to prevent the impending disaster from happening. Given my answers to questions 1&2 I have taken steps to protect me and mine and pray to God they work out.

The problem is unsolvable without a mass of like minded people standing up and refusing to put themselves, their families and people they care for in harms way. But if the general population chooses through willful ignorance to believe the government has their back - Why heck both sides think it is a good idea, so it most be best for us. - There is little a far sighted and correct minded person can do.

You claim danger too soon, you are a crack pot.

You claim this is a bad thing for everyone, you are a denier or a hater.

You cannot shoot the government workers to protect those around you, you become a terrorist.

So to give an answer in short: I havent the slightest clue, other than protect those that I can.
