Retinking Insanity

The DHS decision to locate a lab for researching plant and animal pathogens in Kansas is encountering trouble -- at last! at last! Finally, the intelligence of locating such a facility in Tornado Alley -- and in the heart of US agricultural activity -- is being challenged. There will be a hearing to discuss dangers shortly.

I hope the new structure goes right back on Plum Island, where the inadvertent release of pathogens would go out to sea instead of over farm animal and crop populations.

I saw a Beautiful Thing. The Fox News strip for the hearing impaired was quoting your typical Fox mouth breather, when the tag line typist inserted " -- boo-frickin'-hoo --" into the middle of whatever the guy was whining about. I thought it was just inspired!

"If she can avoid a meltdown"?

Is that like saying "IF he can keep his pants zipped"?

Why yes, it is, only no one ever boldly states that about male candidates.

And she will certainly be as impartial as Fat Tony, who goes duck hunting with Dead-eye Dick Cheney -- only not half often enough, evidently.

Stirring the Pot

FOX is definitely trying to stir up the class war. I don't know how many times I have heard them say "our system provides health care for 25 million people, but it does not have the capacity to take care of 30 million -- and that is what a public health care option would do."

They are trying to scare the old white folks into a frenzy. They want the unemployed and the minorities to be left out. And like the ignoramuses they are, they want to leave a large population ripe to foster and spread an epidemic with no care.
