Bush warns of new horrible thing to fear!
President Bush has now officially progressed beyond simple lies and deception and has graduated to much more complex psychobabble. During his State of the DisUnion address Tuesday, the commander-in-chief warned of a frightening new enemy that could infiltrate American society if left unchecked. The new terrorists. Yes, I'm talking about the dreaded Human-Animal-Hybrid. A beast so threatening it'll make BigFoot seem like Barney.
Our president fears scientists almost as much as he fears Al Qaeda. Oh, these Dr. Frankincense are a scary bunch indeed, says Bush. Roaming around the lab, in their smug white coats, cooking up all sorts of terror in those pesky little test tubes. No siree. He's not going to let them turn America into a scene from Night of the Living Dead. Not this tough guy from Texas. Not on his watch.
Discussing ethics in science and medicine, Bush asked legislators in a packed House chamber to help him protect our society from these dreaded man-beasts:
"Tonight I ask you to pass legislation to prohibit the most egregious abuses of medical research: human cloning in all its forms, creating or implanting embryos for experiments, creating human-animal hybrids, and buying, selling, or patenting human embryos. Human life is a gift from our creator, and that gift should never be discarded, devalued or put up for sale".
Funny as hell, if it weren't so true.
Yes, we agree that scientists bear watching. Witness, the atom bomb....
However, I do not think that we run the risk of mutants running around all over the place as a result of cloning or whatever.
Could someone please explain to Mad King George that scientists do ot plan to clone the human race, and create Frankinsteininan nightmares for us all!
More likely, it will be the depleted Uranium we used in Iraq, and the Balkans, that will cause the mutant monsters of the future, and a lot of heartbreak for the families of such radiation affected fetuses, and all of those exposed to the DNA altering DU.
Hey, where are all you so-called pro-lifers on the issue of depleted Uranium?
