Eating Insects, Iran Nukes, Cap and Spend

Written by Paul Zannucci on 8:46 AM



Earlier this year the Food and Agriculture Organisation held a conference to discuss how entomophagy - eating insects as food - could contribute to sustainable development.

If we can just keep becoming more and more progressive, perhaps some day we can work this concept into legislation. Just think how healthy it would be for Mother Earth if only we were required to put, say, 20% ground worm into ground beef.

From The Wall Street Journal: Cap and Spend

As the Senate opens debate on its mammoth carbon regulation program this week, the phrase of the hour is "cap and trade." This sounds innocuous enough. But anyone who looks at the legislative details will quickly see that a better description is cap and spend. This is easily the largest income redistribution scheme since the income tax.

Hmm. Copying and pasting that was a lot easier than writing these long tirades as I've done the last few days. Let's try it again.

Ms. Boxer expects to scoop up auction revenues of some $3.32 trillion by 2050. Yes, that's trillion. Her friends in Congress are already salivating over this new pot of gold.

Okay, I have to stop now. I'm beginning to feel this tingly, inspired feeling.

Sen. John McCain Monday called for tougher worldwide pressure on Iran and painted his potential rival Sen. Barack Obama as naive about the Middle East.

Oh, come on, John. Give peace a chance. Obama is going to open up a dialogue with Ahmadinejad.

All together now:

"Imagine there's no countries,
It isn't hard to do.
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too.

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace..."

I feel so enlightened now, don't you? I can't wait for Obama to head over there and spread the love.

I'm pretty certain I saw my first ad for this election about thirty-two years ago. At that time, Obama was only fourteen and a little idealistic.

"The sooner we can bring the party together, the sooner we can start focusing on McCain in November," Obama told reporters in Michigan.

Congressional Democrats want to ban Pentagon propaganda on the Iraq war, but they are likely to find that enforcement is easier said than done..."At the end of the day, a lot of what the Defense Department is doing is trying to raise support for the military," said Ken Bacon...Last month, the House passed legislation to prohibit the military from engaging in "any form of communication in support of national objectives..."

Make up your own string of expletives to go with this.
