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.

They just may, considering the constant threats of annihilation of the Jewish State coming from Iran coupled with the Iranian defiance of the IAEA.
WASHINGTON - Former US Ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, said on Tuesday that he believes Israel will stage a raid against Iran's nuclear facilities if Democratic nominee Senator Barack Obama wins the upcoming presidential elections.
Bolton said the IAF would likely strike in the interim term between election day (November 4th) and the inauguration (January 20th 2009) – while George W. Bush is still in office.
"I think if they are to do anything, the most likely period is after our elections and before the inauguration of the next President," Bolton said in an interview with FOX News.
"I don’t think they will do anything before our election because they don’t want to affect it. And they’d have to make a judgment whether to go during the remainder of President Bush’s term in office or wait for his successor."
In a related interview with the British 'Daily Telegraph,' Bolton said he believed the Arab world would be "pleased" by an Israeli strike.
Their reaction, he told the paper "will be positive privately. I think there'll be public denunciations but no action.
And what of this? Something just doesn't smell right...

The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), a league of 57 Muslim nations, said on Monday a Danish court's rejection of a suit against a paper for printing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad could provoke "Islamophobia."
The High Court for western Denmark on Thursday rejected a suit against Jyllands-Posten, the newspaper that first published cartoons of Islam's prophet, leading to deadly protests in Asia, Africa and the Middle East...
The court said the editors had not meant to depict Muslims as criminals or terrorists, the cartoons had not broken the law, and there was a relationship between acts of violence and Islam -- comments that provoked outcry among Muslim groups in Denmark.
"It is a known fact that acts of terror have been carried out in the name of Islam and it is not illegal to make satire out of this relationship," the court said.
The Saudi-based OIC, the largest grouping of Muslim countries, said the ruling could encourage "Islamophobia", a fear or dislike of Islam, which the group has identified as existing in the West.
Huh? Cartoons cause 'Islamophobia' and NOT the call for a worldwide Sharia caliphate, blowing up airplanes and flying them into buildings, killing children in Belsan, strapping 'suicide' vests to mentally handicapped women to bow up markets, ect, ect, ect?
Thank heavens the Danish court still has some measure of sense!

Featuring an eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch, the seal contained a Latin phrase for a touch of gravitas that roughly translates to "Yes, We Can."
Asked to explain the new seal, Obama spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, "It's a mix of presidential politics and a call for hope and change."
Snarked John McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds, "I think we can all agree that we need presidential candidates that are serious enough not to play make-believe on the campaign trail."
"It's laughable, ridiculous, preposterous and revealing all at the same time," Bounds said.
Hey, and isn't it illegal, too?

(CBS) Most children growing up in the US memorize the Pledge of Allegiance. But, in one Oregon elementary school, the kids won't be allowed to recite it at an end of the year assembly.
The principal banned it that day so as not to offend Muslims.
One resident of Portland, Oregon was a little surprised when she received an e-mail from her stepson's school principal.
The e-mail said that the children would not be reciting the pledge because of its reference to God.
Instead, the students would memorize and sing the Preamble to the United States Constitution.
But it's not just non-Muslims who were offended.
At least one Muslim community leader says he feels the same way. Muhammad Najieb says that 'God'
is central to the Muslim faith, and there are several references to him in
Portland school officials say the principal was trying to be sensitive, but some Muslims say the ban caused hurt feelings, and may foster bitterness and division within the community.
Well, what do you know? Preemptive dhimmitude.
Why not just change the Pledge to suit Islamists? We could get our children to say something like, "One caliphate, Under Allah, With beheadings and servitude for all."

Hold the phone! Is Cuba finally waking up to the fact that communism/socialism doesn't work?!?
Cuba is to abolish its system of equal pay for all and allow workers and managers to earn performance bonuses, a senior official has announced.
Vice-Minister for Labour Carlos Mateu said the current system - in place since the communist revolution in 1959 - was no longer "convenient".
He said wage differentiation should improve production and services...The minister pointed out that the current wage system sapped employees' incentives to excel since everyone earned the same regardless of performance. "It's harmful to give a worker less than he deserves, it's also harmful to give him what he doesn't deserve," the newspaper article said.
Someone should call the Democrats and let them know that their Che shirts are even more irrelevant now.

"Al Qaeda is an ideology," Sheik Ahmad said. "We can defeat them inside Iraq and we can defeat them in any country." The tribal leader arrived in Washington last week. All of his meetings, including an audience withPresident Bush, have been closed to the public, in part because the Anbari sheiks, while likely to win future electoral contests, are not themselves part of Iraq's elected government.
Of his meeting with Mr. Bush, Sheik Ahmad said he was impressed. "He is a brave man. He is also a wise man. He is taking care of the country's future, the United States' future. He is also taking care of the Iraqi people, the ordinary people in Iraq. He wants to accomplish success in Iraq."
Considering the constant stream of doom coming from the media, this sort of optimism is particularly refreshing!
Funny how this extraordinarily good news has made nary a blip in the media, nor from our Congressional so-called leaders.

Do you want to be the first person to have sex in space?
SANTA FE, N.M., June 5 (UPI) -- Virgin Galactic, a New Mexico space tourism company, said it has received several requests from couples seeking to be the first to have sex in space.
Will Whitehorn, president of the company, said the approach of Virgin's first planned space tourism flight, which is expected to take place in 2009, has led to many curious couples asking the company about sex in sub-orbital zero gravity, The Telegraph reported Thursday.
"We've had a variety of people inquire about it," Whitehorn said of space sex. "One got in touch about a charter flight so they could be the first to have intercourse in space and get in the Guinness Book of Records."
Dr. James Logan, an expert in space medicine, said the zero gravity portion of the first space tourism flights will last only five minutes, leaving very little time for intercourse. He said couples would likely find sex without gravity to be more trouble than it's worth.
"Sex in zero gravity would more or less be a flailing exercise quite frankly," he said. "Sex in Martian gravity might be pretty appealing though."
(Re: Martian gravity.) It does sound like fun...
Since they're not booking vacations to Mars and Virgin isn't going to cover the inside of their space plane in plastic wrap, it looks like these folks will have to wait 'till they build an orbital hotel!

How's this for a sterling example of disdain for our military?
Tony Workman and Will McDonnell want to wear their uniforms instead of their cap and gown as they walk across the stage.
Leaders at Chardon High School near Cleveland said if they allow Workman and McDonnell to wear their uniforms then other students would not want to wear their cap and gowns either.
