[Right, he thought he was working with al-CIAduh but was actually working with the FBI. Ergo, he was *still* working with terrorists - just a different bunch. The US government HAD the explosives and the US government PROVIDED the explosives, as usual. The terrorists *are* the US government. --LRP]

U.S. nuclear plants similar to Fukushima spark concerns 17 Feb 2012 As the United States prepares to build its first new nuclear power reactors in three decades [thanks to corpora-terrorist troll Obama], concerns about an early generation of plants have resurfaced since last year's disaster in Japan.

Passions Flare as House Debates Birth Control Rule

February 17, 2012 by legitgov

Passions Flare as House Debates Birth Control Rule --The first of two lineups of witnesses at a House committee hearing on Thursday consisted of five men. 17 Feb 2012 President Obama's compromise plan to require free insurance coverage of contraceptives for women touched off a tumultuous debate on Thursday in which members of Congress mixed political theater with soul-searching over potential threats to religious liberty. Lutheran and Baptist clergymen and an Orthodox rabbi joined a Roman Catholic bishop in telling lawmakers that Mr. Obama's latest policy of shifting the responsibility for paying for the contraceptives from religious institutions to their health insurers was unworkable and did not allay concerns about government entanglement with religion. Representative Carolyn B. Maloney, Democrat of New York, asked: "Where are the women? It's outrageous that the Republicans would not allow a single individual representing the tens of millions of women who want and need insurance coverage for basic preventive health care services, including family planning." [Better yet, *where* is the hearing on the US government allowing waterboarding under Bush and the signing of the NDAA by Obusha allowing detention of US citizens without charge or trial? I'd like to know why we don't get *those* House committee hearings. --LRP]

February 16, 2012 by legitgov

Before current birth-control fight, Republicans backed mandates 15 Feb 2012 Since President Obama moved to require Catholic hospitals and universities to offer their employees contraceptive health benefits, Republicans have rushed to accuse the administration of an unprecedented attack on religious freedoms.

But years before the current partisan firestorm, GOP lawmakers and governors around the country, including Huckabee, backed similar mandates... In six states, including Arkansas, those contraceptive mandates were signed by GOP governors.
