Nukes are theoretically safe and efficient. As I understand it, there's not enough known uranium sources on Earth to power the world, but in conjunction with solar, wind, hydro and bio-fuels (preferably from waste) there's enough.
Unfortunately, theories don't build nuke plants. Corporations do. And we can't manage to regulate large retail stores to make them behave in a socially responsible way, why do we think we can regulate a giant power company? Japan generally comes across as a competent, long-term thinking country. And yet even their political culture couldn't prevent fraud and corruption in the building of their nuke plants.
Until our political systems can effectively regulate large corporations, I'm opposed to nuclear power. The theory's great, but so far I don't see designs that can survive large-scale corruption.

But I CAN recommend watching "48 Hrs" over Lethal Weapon. It's the template.
It is the cause. It IS a social one.
It is because of corporate food production, factory farming and industrial "recipes" that make cheap and plentiful Soylent Soy or Corpulent Corn - with added glutimate to overstimulate appetite generation.
These are the product of an agribusiness that has made this production a part of public policy, through the US Farm Bill and other legislative manipulation.
If you are deliberately misinformed, marketed to death, and underpaid, the last thing you need to solve for the attendant health effects is more pills. It's like plugging your nostrils, because you have a cold.
But I bet the pharmaceutical and health-insurance rackets love the idea...
The man WHO PROVED that GOD lives inside a QUARK!??!
Except with Obamacare, it's the law that you have to use the 1.0 buggy release.
It seems like you are conflating the website with the law. You do have to get insurance, but you do not have to use the website.
If you are entitled to a subsidy, the website is the only way to get it. Direct applications to insurers won't receive one.
If you ask a transit rider how to get there by car, they may not give you the best directions. Try asking them how to get there by bus. If they don't know the answer offhand, they certainly know how to quickly find out.
Man, these guys are total fucktards:
Ahem. Perhaps you should calibrate your sarcasm detector.
Seems that what constitutes a state secret is not clearly defined, but punishments for divulging one are: 10 years in prison for government employees; 5 for journalists.
This new law, which sailed through the lower house of the Diet on 26 November and is expected to pass the upper house on 8 December, was fast-tracked, apparently in a bid to avoid much in the way of discussion, especially as about the only ones in favor of it are the ruling party.
This law is similar to provisions to be subscribed by all of the 12 initial members of the upcoming TPP, which is also to be fast-tracked by Congress. Slashdotters from the U.S. and abroad will likely recognize similar laws, or proposed laws, in their own countries."

So what they actually called the shop is 'To the starses.' Or possibly 'To the altar.'
We hates it, forever!
