Nukes and Apes and Rapists, Oh, My!

As we anxiously await the Supreme Court's answer on the D.C. gun ban, I will post on a few other stories that caught my eye...

First, we have President Bush lifting sanctions on North Korea.

The announcement came after North Korea handed over a long-awaited accounting of its nuclear work to Chinese officials on Thursday, fulfilling a key step in the denuclearization process. Bush said the move was "a step closer in the right direction" although he made clear the United States remains suspicious about the communist regime in Pyongyang.

Noooooooo... You think suspicion is warranted? Geez...

It won't illuminate North Korea's suspected program of developing weapons fueled by enriched uranium. As a result of the six-nation nuclear talks, the North has stopped making plutonium and begun disabling its nuclear facilities, but it still has a stockpile of radioactive material that experts believe is enough to build from six to 10 bombs.

Well, they'll only have six to ten? What could go wrong? 

The North proved it could build a working nuclear bomb when it carried out an underground nuclear test blast in October 2006. Details on the bombs, however, will be left to the next stage of the talks, when Pyongyang is supposed to abandon all its nuclear weapons programs.

I'm sure they'll give up their program. Kimmie has never, ever gone back on his word before. He's SO honorable, after all.

North Korea's declaration also won't give a complete accounting of how

 it allegedly helped Syria build what senior U.S. intelligence officials say was a secret nuclear reactor meant to make plutonium, which can be used to make high-yield nuclear weapons. Israeli jets bombed the structure in the remote eastern desert of Syria in September 2007.

Oh. Well, I'm sure they just think that little Syrian nuclear plant thing was no big deal. Yeah.

So, we piss in Japan's eye with this, ignore that we just gave Kimmie a reward for pissing in our eye by allowing trade after he played us long enough to refine enough Plutonium to make six to ten nukes. Meanwhile, we continue the sanctions against Cuba who isn't making nukes, isn't run by Fidel anymore, and has just started to implement merit pay for workers.

Great job, George. That makes perfect sense.

Next on the plate is the ridiculous decision by the Spanish Parliament to give great apes human rights to life  and freedom.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not for being mean to the animals. But they are animals. They don't need human rights. What's next, does my cat have inalienable rights? 

From this source:

Keeping apes for circuses, television commercials or filming will also be forbidden and breaking the new laws will become an offence under Spain's penal code.

Keeping an estimated 315 apes in Spanish zoos will not be illegal, but supporters of the bill say conditions will need to improve drastically in 70 percent of establishments to comply with the new law.

Philosophers Peter Singer and Paola Cavalieri founded the Great Ape Project in 1993, arguing that "non-human hominids" like chimpanzees, gorillas, orang-utans and bonobos should enjoy the right to life, freedom and not to be tortured.

First of all, I don't know anyone who isn't insane that would torture an ape. Someone like that should be put down, because they're going to start torturing people eventually. 

Secondly, isn't Peter Singer the asshole that said that parents should be allowed to abort babies up until their second birthday, because they don't yet have a grasp on the concept of the future and therefore aren't a full human yet? 

I don't think apes have a grasp on the future, asshole. Maybe we should just kill them all. I don't think they have "rationality, autonomy, and self-consciousness." Therefore, "simply killing an [ape] is never equivalent to killing a person."

And finally, speaking of assholes who have a psychotic need to destroy children, we have the Supreme Court rejecting the death penalty for child rapists, particularly a rapist from Louisiana who so badly injured an eight-year-old girl that a surgeon had to be called in to repair her genitals.

Let me tell you, for this scumbag, I'd pay for the bullet and administer it myself.

But that's not the worst of it; a month ago we have a lawyer from Assachussetts vowing to "rip apart" child rape victims on the stand... You know, because being traumatically violated by a pedophile just wasn't bad enough.

From this source

Rep. James Fagan, a Democrat, made the comments during debate last month on the state House floor.

"I'm gonna rip them apart," Fagan said of young victims during his testimony on the bill. "I'm going to make sure that the rest of their life is ruined, that when they’re 8 years old, they throw up; when they’re 12 years old, they won’t sleep; when they’re 19 years old, they’ll have nightmares and they’ll never have a relationship with anybody.”

Fagan said as a defense attorney it would be his duty to do that in order to keep his clients free from a "mandatory sentence of those draconian proportions."

No, asshole. Your duty as a defense attorney is to provide a adequate, vigorous defense of your client, NOT to torture eight-year-olds on the stand.  If evidence says your client is not guilty, then he won't be subject to "those draconian" punishments that frankly aren't nearly horrible enough for a child rapist.

This creature should be disbarred, tarred and feathered and run out of the House on a rail! 

See for yourself:

Let's just hope that later today, the Supreme Court comes through for We The People on the D.C. gun ban.
