    Steam seems to be coming from Fukushima reactor #3. This isn't a very good translation. Does anyone here read Japanese better than I do?

    "December 27, Unit 3 reactor building 5 Kaichuo part from the vicinity and check the camera that the steam is generated."

    Dear Leader wants to mess with our religious freedoms http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014...contraception/

    While I am an atheist I like the idea of religious freedom (as long as I can have freedom from religion)

    Should we allow Muslims to live under Sharia law instead of US federal/state law as well, then? Because if we start allowing exemptions like that, then that sort of thing would logically follow.

    Whether Obama meant it or not, this part of the Affordable Care Act is heightening the contradictions. I hope it will ultimately lead to de-coupling health insurance from employment.

    Since when is contraception the US governments business? You gotta draw a line somewhere.

    That's a separate issue from religious freedom, though. Think what you want about government involvement in healthcare, but whatever standards are set shouldn't be selectively applied based on religion.
