With Obama we might as well say good by to the Cows, Deer, Hogs, Chicken and maybe even the Dogs. The new Regulatory cazr even thinks a seeing eye dog is nothing but a slave. This guy is really a nut case!
Cass Sunstein is Obama's pick to run the White House's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. He's a dedicated animal-rights zealot.
He believes before we can use lab rats for cancer research will need to get permission from the rats.
He believes seeing eye dogs are nothing but slavesSeeing-eye dogs? They're nothing more than slaves.
And if that's not nutty enough, he's actually in favor of giving animals the legal right to sue people.
Here's what Sunstein wrote in his 2004 book, Animal Rights: Current Debates and New Directions:
"[A]nimals should be permitted to bring suit, with human beings as their representatives ... Any animals that are entitled to bring suit would be represented by (human) counsel, who would owe guardian like obligations and make decisions, subject to those obligations, on their clients' behalf."Conservative commentators have been openly fretting that Barack Obama may try to turn welfare entitlements and single-payer healthcare into a new Bill of Rights. But Cass Sunstein threatens to expand the whole concept of "rights" to include the rest of the animal kingdom.
