What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

One of those things that is hard to believe.

This is one of those things that is almost impossible to believe. When I first heard about this a few days ago I thought it was something from "The Onion" or a hoax. So I called the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and they refused to comment except for providing me with this link to their website:
http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/news/2013/13-039.iii.pdf

This is one of those things that you just have to read over and over again and you are still left wondering if it is really real.

But, it is for real. Anyone who doesn't believe me can call the NRC themselves.

Apparently the Obamacare folks aren't the only ones having problems with their website links because I couldn't get the links at the end of this press release to work.

When I called the NRC back asking why the links weren't working they said they were very busy people and when they had the time they would get around to it.

I then asked if they could direct me to any links on their website about Fukushima. I was told that they were not a research facility for the general public and in effect told me to bone up on my Internet skills.
