Saving the United States from human-animal hybrids


Recommended Posts

A number of Senators are boldly saving the nation from Dr. Moreau's infamous island of manimals and rogue mermaids the world over with the Brownback-Landrieu hybrid cloning ban. Proud sponsors and cosigners include Senators Jim Bunning (R-KY), Tom Coburn (R-OK), John Cornyn (R-TX), John Ensign (R-NV), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), James Inhofe (R-OK), John McCain (R-AZ), and David Vitter (R-LA) among others. What do you suppose the odds are one of those politicians happens to be diabetic?


In 1978, scientists at the Biotechnology Company Genentech cloned the gene for Human Insulin ... After the human insulin gene was isolated from human tissue, it was chemically joined or 'spliced' to into a small bacterial chromosome called a plasmid. Once joined to this plasmid DNA, it essentially became just another piece of DNA in the bacterial chromosome. Every time the bacterial cell divides, it replicates its DNA, including replicating the human insulin gene ... The result: tons of bacteria making tons of human insulin!



Man these guys are doing important work.

Seems maybe a bit sensationalist and unnecessary, but what's the problem with this again? :wacko:


The bill is modest in scope and only affects efforts to blur the genetic lines between animals and humans. It does not preclude the use of animals or humans in legitimate research or health care where genetic material is not passed on to future generations.


As such, the bill does not include, for example, the use of a porcine heart valve in a human patient or the use of a lab rat with human diseases to develop treatments.

Great, and right when ammunition is so expensive.


Go to a gun show. I went to one a few weeks ago, and there was some fairly affordable ammo being sold. There was one booth that had all kinds of reloading materials too. Supposedly it is hard to find primers right now, but this guy had plenty to sell. There is another one coming the 27th and 28th of this month. It is a great place to go to just people watch.

If this bill doesn't pass, then I assure you that Al Gore will save us from the dreaded Man/Bear/Pig.



Steven Cobert did say Robert Bork was a man/goat. :wacko: This could be worse than I thought.
