Now science has just gone and gotten plain silly. Apparently, somebody is claiming to have made human sperm from stem cells.
Whoopee. Big deal. Don't they know we already had human sperm? Why don't those 'scientists' go off and invent something useful like a bigger McRib sandwich. Now THAT would be science worthy.
I mean the McRib itself is science worthy. Think about it. You take rib meat and maybe some other unidentifiable stuff, make sure there are no bones, then mold it to look like there are bones in it, all for the purpose of putting it on a sandwich! Pure scientific genius! How could you top that....short of maybe grinding up a whole bunch of steak and ground beef and molding it to look like a T-bone and making it a sandwich?
Hmmmmmm....Hey, Copyright!! I call copyright! If anybody starts selling that, your ass is mine. I will not hesitate to file Shenanigans agasint you in a court of law.
While I work on my McT-Bone prototype, keep your eyes open folks, because the smoke and mirrors are happening in Washington again.
First, Obama is calling for legislation on healthcare by the end of the week from the Senate. Remember what I've told you before..anytime the government starts insisting something get done quickly, you know it's a bad idea. Just to prove my point, here is a nice visual depiction of the bureaucracy that will be involved in the House version of the healthcare bill. Do you think that any organization that can be responsible for coming up with that mess could or SHOULD be doing anything quickly?
In addition, listen to the new information coming out of the government about the economic recovery. Remember, the stimulus - according to Democrats - was going to show IMMEDIATE results and would keep us from going past 8% unemployment, but alas, Mr. Biden says they misread how bad things were and now, not only might that economic recovery not begin by this fall, but we might have double digit unemployment for the next 4-5 years!!!
This is now being dubbed a potential 'jobless recovery'. That's right, Fed Chariman Ben Bernanke agreed that this could be a 'jobless recovery.' So, economic growth, but no jobs. That should make people feel better.
Keep an eye on these people, folks. They have contempt for the American people and feel we're nothing but stupid sheep. Next thing you know, they'll try to take a bunch of random meats and mold it into the shape of an economic recovery.
