Animals Have Same Rights As Humans

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.

Ken Blackwell Says No To Stimulus

Blackwell Knows The Difference
Former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell said Friday President-elect Barack Obama’s economic stimulus plan is esignedin part to give a political edge to Democrats.

Blackwell, a candidate for chair of the Republican National Committee, blasted Obama in a column for the conservative website, writing that the stimulus package “as currently designed, has serious flaws, some of which convey a partisan advantage.”

Specifically, Blackwell charged that Obama’s plans to create hundreds of thousands of government jobs could be a thinly-veiled effort to swell Democratic voter rolls in Maryland and Virginia.

“Most federal employees, that are not political employees, vote Democrat,” Blackwell argued. “Creating 600,000 new jobs might help cement Virginia in the Democrat column, making it harder for Republicans to retake the White House.”

In addition, Blackwell also suggested that Democrats would pack the stimulus bill with earmarks targeted at voters in the 2010 midterm election. He pointed specifically at Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, whose home state of Nevada may receive federal funding for a controversial – and some say frivolous – museum of organized crime.

“Is that the kind of project that requires emergency federal funding?” Blackwell asked rhetorically. “Is it irrelevant that Mr. Reid is facing a tough reelection next year?”

The former Cincinnati mayor, a favorite target of liberal bloggers due to his role in overseeing Ohio’s 2004 presidential balloting, has distinguished himself in the RNC contest as the most aggressive and sharply ideological conservative in the field.

In early January he received endorsements from a host of conservative movement leaders, including Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly, American Conservative Union President David Keene and Virginia RNC Committeeman Morton Blackwell.

Star Parker Says, We Need Share Holder Revolt

We Still Need New Leadership

The fact there does not appear to be a single Republican leader capable or ready to challenge the assertion that "only government" can put our sputtering economy back on track shows we need a rebirth of the Republican Party. And that this rebirth must come from the grass roots.
Those 56 percent of Republicans who said "no" in this latest Gallup poll are looking for a leader. And that leader certainly does not seem to be in Washington.
As the political class in Washington transforms our once great, prosperous and free country into a lumbering socialist mediocrity, a voice of dissent is needed.
In this sense, I like what Ken Blackwell is proposing in his run for Republican National Committee chairman. Mr. Blackwell is calling for a "shareholder revolt" within the Republican Party and to move power, money and influence to state organizations.
We do need a shareholder revolt in the Republican Party followed by one in the country as a whole.

Democrats Trying To Reduce The Cattle Industry

Stimulus may bolster dairy industry
FALLING MILK PRICES: Initial effort to pay farmers to retire cows fizzles

WASHINGTON — A stimulus package may be a lifeline for the nation's economy, but it could be a death sentence for a lot of cows.
Lawmakers are looking for ways to use the forthcoming stimulus bill to help dairy farmers, and the number one priority is to dampen milk supplies and prop up prices. Translation: reduce the nation's dairy herd.
Exactly how Congress will accomplish that remains uncertain. An initial effort to use stimulus money to pay farmers to retire cows failed when House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rep. David R. Obey, D-Wis., objected on the grounds that it violated a promise not to include earmarks in the bill, said Rep. Collin C. Peterson, D-Minn., chairman of the House Agriculture Committee.

Sex With Students OK For Teachers

From Mark Shannon Blog:

School teachers can have sex with their their 18-year-old students according to.
A three-judge panel of the Washington Court of Appeals on Tuesday ordered the dismissal of a case brought against Matthew Hirschfelder, a former choir teacher at Hoquiam High School who was accused of having a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old student in 2006, when he was 33.

Hirschfelder, who resigned in 2007, denied the relationship. But his lawyer challenged the charge against him, first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor, arguing that an 18-year-old is not a minor. The Court of Appeals heard the case after a lower-court judge refused to dismiss it.
With Tuesday's ruling, the appeals court unanimously agreed that the state law banning sex between teachers and students is "ambiguous," because 18-year-old students are not legally minors. The appeals court reversed the lower court's ruling and ordered it to dismiss the charges.
Prosecutors say they have not decided whether they will appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court.

Adolf Hitler Is Not An Appropriate Name According To The Government

A 3-year-old boy named Adolf Hitler and his two Nazi-named younger sisters were removed from their New Jersey home last week and placed in state custody, police said.

Adolf Hitler Campbell and his sisters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, were taken from their Holland Township, N.J., home on Friday by the state's Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS), Sgt. John Harris of the Holland Township Police Department told
Kate Bernyk, a spokeswoman for the DYFS, said confidentiality laws barred her from commenting on the case or even confirming that the Campbell children were involved.
"DYFS has their reasons and they normally don’t release any information, so we kind of have to go on faith with them," Harris said. Police were not told what the agency was investigating.

"I’ve dealt with the family for years and as far as the children are concerned, I have never had any reports of any abuse with the children," Harris said. "As far as I know, he’s always been very good with the children."

Little 'Adolf Hitler' Denied Birthday Cake at New Jersey Grocery Store
Speaking generally, Bernyk said the state's "decision to remove a child is based on the safety and well being of the child and the risk to that child, and that decision is made in conjunction with the courts and the county family court judge."
The Campbells made national news last month when a ShopRite supermarket refused to sell them a birthday cake with Adolf Hitler's name on it. The story generated a slew of angry Internet chatter.
Forensic psychologist N.G. Berrill said naming a boy Hitler could be considered child abuse.

"Part of it is the infantile nature of the parents’ behavior," Berrill said. "You can name your dog something weird, but they think they’re making some kind of bold statement with the children, not appreciating that the children will have separate lives and will be looked at in a negative light until they’re able to change their name. It is abuse."

Heath Campbell told the Easton-Express Times last year that he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked it and "no one else in the world would have that name."
A paper to be published in March in Social Sciences Journal by economists David E. Kalist and Daniel Y. Lee of Shippensburg University found that unpopular first names, when mixed with factors like a disadvantaged home life, can increase the tendency toward juvenile delinquency.
Lee told that Adolf and Hitler were not names they looked at for the study.

"Hitler most likely would be an unpopular name in the sense that not many people name their children with a name [like Hitler], but we didn’t particularly look at particularly bad names like that," he said.

Obama Picks A Real Winner

Vicki Robinson a Bishop who left his wife and two daughters to live with a man is Obama's pick to pray at the inaugural. Don't expect him to have his Bible with him.

'Gay' bishop doesn't plan to use Bible at inaugural event

Associated Press CONCORD, N.H. - The first openly homosexual Episcopal bishop will offer a prayer at the Lincoln Memorial at an inaugural event for president-elect Barack Obama.

The selection of New Hampshire Episcopal Bishop Vicki Gene Robinson for Sunday's event follows weeks of criticism from homosexual-rights groups over Obama's decision to have the Rev. Rick Warren give the invocation at his Jan. 20 inauguration. Warren backed the ban on same-sex "marriage" that passed in his home state of California on the November ballot.

Robinson said last month the choice of Warren was like a slap in the face. In an interview with the Concord Monitor, he said he doesn't believe Obama invited him in response to the Warren criticism but said his inclusion won't go unnoticed by the homosexual community. "It's important for any minority to see themselves represented in some way," Robinson told the newspaper for a story in Monday's editions. "Whether it be a racial minority, an ethnic minority, or in our case, a sexual minority. Just seeing someone like you up front matters."

Clark Stevens, a spokesman for the inaugural committee, said Robinson was invited because he had offered his advice to Obama during the campaign and because of his church work. When asked whether Robinson was included to calm the Warren complaints, he said Robinson is "an important figure in the religious community. We are excited that he will be involved."

Robinson, 61, said both Obama and vice president-elect Joe Biden will attend the event, and Obama is expected to speak. As for himself, Robinson said he doesn't yet know what he'll say, but he knows he won't use a Bible.

"While that is a holy and sacred text to me, it is not for many Americans," Robinson said. "I will be careful not to be especially Christian in my prayer. This is a prayer for the whole nation."

Robinson said his prayer will be reflective of the times. "I think these are sober and difficult times that we are facing," he said. "It won't be a happy, clappy prayer."

Robinson's 2003 consecration has divided the Episcopal Church in the United States and abroad.
