Chernobyl is irrelevant becuase the Soviets had no regard for human life and built the reactor without a containment vessel.

Fukushima was caused by operator error, as was TMI. The safety systems worked.

Okay, if a guy was on top of you and beating your face, pounding your head into the sidewalk and telling you "you gonna die tonight, m--r f--r" and you had a gun in your pocket, would you
1) allow him to continue to pound your head into the sidewalk until he ran out of energy
2) tell him you are a sensitive liberal who understands the plight of his minority status or
3) shoot him
Question number two: were you equally upset about OJ Simpson getting away with murdering his ex-wife and her boyfriend?
Question number three: do you care as much about the 5 people that were murdered in Chicago the same weekend that the Trayvon Martin verdict was reached?
Question number four: are you a hypocritical, lying liberal maggot and convenient idiot for the Lord Obama administration, who looks pretty damned stupid for trying to turn a non-case into a political event?
If I saw a suspicious person in my neighborhood, I would probably not do anything, unless that person came onto my property. If I felt any danger, I would call the police and remain in my home.
OJ murdered his ex wife and friend and got away with it because of police incompetence. His life since then has been a disaster and now at age 66, is in prison.
The problem in Chicago is awful, but, it is gang related. Drug dealers killing each other for territory.
Zimmerman may have been found not guilty by a jury of stupid omen; but his life is over. He created his own prison when he chose to kill an innocent child.
Karma will take care of him in time.

Now banks are fighting back by trying to take away something vital to credit unions their federal tax exemption.
With fast-growing credit unions posing more formidable competition to banks, industry trade groups are pressing the White House and Congress to end a tax break that dates to the Great Depression."

Why should credit unions be tax-exempt?

These actual letters to conservative groups by the IRS isn't unnecessary or intrusive badgering and gestapo-type grilling just to get the same tax exemption status as liberal organizations...unless, of course, you're a liberal.

And unless someone can prove liberal organizations seeking the same tax exemption status were sent the same kinds of letters and expected to provide the almost impossible and insurmountable truckloads of information which the IRS had no business knowing - and even if someone can - this is clearly an infringement on 1st Amendment rights.
A bipartisan group of senators reached a tentative agreement on a student loans package Wednesday night, multiple aides from each party said.

Sen. Tom Harkin, Democratic chairman of the committee that oversees federal education programs, agreed to the deal, one of those sources close to the negotiations told CNN.

The Iowa senator's support is key because it would likely persuade most Democratic senators to vote for the bill.

Harkin has resisted for weeks agreeing to a plan unless it included caps on how high the interest rates on the loans could rise. The tentative plan includes caps on loans to undergraduate students at 8.25%, graduate students at 9.5% and parents at 10.5%.

Student loan rates doubled July 1 from 3.4% to 6.8% after Congress failed to reach a deal averting the increase.

Rude awakening for grads

Harkin also pressed to ensure the government would not profit from the loans. A final cost analysis, which would determine that, was not completed as of Wednesday night, a Democratic leadership aide said.

The White House, which has been heavily involved in negotiations, backs the agreement, a Senate Democratic leadership aide said.

Still, one word of caution came late Wednesday from an aide to a Democratic senator deeply involved in negotiations. That aide said final details were still being worked out.

This same group of negotiators had previously announced a tentative agreement, but it fell apart after the Congressional Budget Office estimated the costs were high.

The agreement, if approved by the full Senate, would tie interest rates on a variety of government-backed loans to 10-year Treasury notes and would lock in surcharges paid to the government for administrative costs.
