Wednesday Round Up

If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace. --Thomas Paine

Fair warning: I've been playing on the liberal blogs the past couple of days.

  • BUSTED! Hillary busted trashing netroots groups and Democrat activists (Via America Blog)

  • Sadr gives Maliki Last Warning on Ceasefire Muqtada al-Sadr has threatened to end his movement's ceasefire, unless the Maliki government and US military end their crackdown. (Via News Hoggers)

  • My Vote's for Obama (if I could vote) ) I don't get to vote for President this primary season. I live in Michigan. The party leaders (both here and in D.C.) couldn't get their act together, and thus our votes will not be counted. So, if you live in Pennsylvania, can you do me a favor? Will you please cast my vote -- and yours -- on Tuesday for Senator Barack Obama? (Via Michael Moore)

    And now back to the regular round up:

  • Sunday Funnies Too funny to not link to. (Via Flopping Aces)

  • Energy, Mexico, Canada, and the NAFTA Trade Deficit It is amazing how some presidential candidates are blaming the North American Free Trade Agreement for U.S. job losses. They seem to believe that a substantial part of the three million manufacturing jobs lost since 2000 resulted from Nafta, and that outsourcing of manufacturing production to Mexico and Canada resulted in a huge trade deficit. (Via WSJ)

  • Oh. No. He. Didn't. Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels elicited several hushed gasps and raised eyebrows late last week as he lectured a conservative crowd that it was "time to let Ronald Reagan go." (Via Daily Pundit)

  • Does he have to give his Nobel Prize back? It goes without saying that climate realists around the world believe Nobel Laureate Al Gore used false information throughout his schlockumentary "An Inconvenient Truth" in order to generate global warming hysteria. (Via News Busters)

  • A Measure of Race: 15 Percent? I was talking the other day to a prominent Republican who asked me what I thought John McCain's strongest issues would be in the general election. (Via Politico)

  • We're all gonna starve! Not a day goes by without some big leader warning the world of the coming food crisis. A week ago, it was U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's turn in the race to the microphone and camera. (Via IBD)

  • PETA offers $1million for lab grown meat Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, fake meat... wonder if it tastes like Spam?? (Via NYT)

  • Food Rationing? At a Costco Warehouse in Mountain View, Calif., yesterday, shoppers grew frustrated and occasionally uttered expletives as they searched in vain for the large sacks of rice they usually buy. (Via Daily Pundit)

    Re: Micael Moore link

    Don't worry, Mike. Some Obama supporter, dead or alive, will gleefully cast an extra vote for you.

    "But, Ms. Newkirk said, the... (Below threshold)

    "But, Ms. Newkirk said, the decision to sponsor a prize caused "a near civil war in our office," since so many PETA members are repulsed by the thought of eating animal tissue, even if no animals are killed."

    Vat meat isn't fake meat. It's real meat grown without nature's life-support system. No hooves, no feathers, no big doe-eyes or amusing behaviors.

    It's cloned tissue. Which means it has to come from some living creature to start. Can't grow vat chicken breast without killing at least one chicken.

    Plus, it's *living* tissue. It has to be alive in order to grow.

    Not that I think people shouldn't try to do this, and not because it's a good idea for food, because I don't think it is. Scientists have cloned organs of lab rats... wouldn't it be nice to grow a new heart or liver or breast? Or... how about growing the muscles that move our legs, the tendons, everything... the medical uses seem endless.

    A world without chickens or... (Below threshold)

    A world without chickens or cows would be a sad sad thing.

    PETA would rather destroy whole species than see them raised to be eaten.

    Anyone remember the reactio... (Below threshold)

    Anyone remember the reaction when the rumor was flying about KFC using lab grown meat in place of the real thing? What makes PETA think the reaction to other 'vat' grown products would be any different? Perhaps they think their endorsement would make it more appetizing to the average steak eating American?

    There are places in Africa ... (Below threshold)
    SPQR:

    There are places in Africa where people are starving and yet their rulers are refusing food shipments because they believe the nutty garbage put out by loons about genetically engineered food crops.
