Good Morning Mr.Infidel!

Science Daily was a treat read as far as heart surgery robotic's. You know, I was watching some video documentary piece, not long back of a doctor in Houston(TX) who was treating patient's in other location's through video and robotic tech's (not anything like heart surgery), but it was intersesting. I just cant recall where I seen it, something like "60 Minute's" or something.

Mr. Willis' piece on Lousiana's Gov.Jindal was a good point, which was the first thing I noticed yesterday in the news when Jindal was "asking" for help. Alot of these sob's whine constantly about too much government intervention from Washington, but are alway's the first in line with their cup held out asking for it when shit hit's home. One of the biggest full o' shit governor's has to be Rick Perry of Texas, this ole boy alway's has his cup and hand out, and speak's constantly about shit like independence, etc, etc, less government interference, no handout's from Washington, etc. Texas get's big buck's from Washington and been for year's, even under democrat governor's, this is all political baloney talk, just like all that seccession stuff.

Liked the piece's from "BeAttitude" and "Daily Dish" on Chimp's .... yes they are emotional as I am or anyone else on death of those close, sadness, etc. (even happiness) I even look at their value's, and other trait's which many human's think are only exclusive to them. And I dont just limit my thinking like this to chimp's .... spend a long while with just your home pet, like say your dog, and see their reaction when you are sick or in trouble/ harm, or they are "sad" or whatever.

Anywayz, Thanx and have a good un Guy ....

I honestly did not know it was illegal to have sex with animals,disgusting maybe, but illegal? I know it's illegal to torture animals, (unless you are a scientific lab, then you can torture the hell out of them) but maybe the dogs liked it...
It must be a moral issue, right?

RC: Once remote-control surgery is perfected, it has a lot of potential. Doctors in the US could operate on soldiers in war zones where surgeons are not available, for example.

Rita: I imagine enforcement isn't a priority. And of course in most cases there's no way anyone would know about it.

Excellent links - thanks! Particularly enjoyed the series on the Birchers. I would simply add that they are one link in a long chain that goes back into the mid 19th century, (with groups like the No Nothings, and various nativist groups and the original KKK, and continued into the last 50 years with the Renaissance party, the various off-shoot Klans, the Minutemen, Posse Comitatus, etc., etc.
