Well now isn't that convinient? Rearm while allowing the LGBT to marry. By attaching a social issue that almost everyone will get behind to rearming, these dinosaurs assume they'll actually get away with revising pacifism. One only hopes people can see through the farce.

There's no such thing as safe food if it's grown anywhere near nuclear fallout. If you can't it food from chenobyl, you most definitely can't eat that from Fukushima. Well, if that's what floats your boat, go right ahead.
