“[T]he best undergraduate student I have had [at AMU].... My initial reaction was that there had been a mistake and that he was a graduate student.... I know this guy and he's smart as hell."
-Former Professor Dr. Thomas Kirkwood, Fulbright Scholar with a PH.D. in Political Science (dissertation published by the London School of Economics).
“Right on...I couldn't agree more. I can't believe the ICC agreed to hold the Olympics [in China]....
[F]or all of our (deserved) ire towards Cuba, we have essentially become apologists for communist China, which by all accounts has some of the world's worst human rights violations and violations of religious freedom. Sadly, Tibet and Darfur aren't even the worst of its offenses. Time will only tell how useless they'll be in Zimbabwe. And you're right, we don't need China as badly as people like to hyperbolically and hysterically suggest. Time to get tough...way past time, actually."

Details: PMU and Premarin stand for PREgnant MARes URINe. Premarin, once the top selling drug, is a hormone replacement therapy drug given to menopausal and osteoporosis patients. Due to modern research that finds Premarin causes cancer in humans, the demand for it is going down. Meanwhile, the farms that just closed down have thousands of horses they desperately want to get rid of. Many will end up in the slaughter house if we don’t save them. The cost to rescue them includes a basic price to purchase (at meat price), vaccinations (VEWT, Rabies, Flu/Rhino, and West Nile), border fees, and transport (from Canada). This is one of the many PMU mares that have been shipped to Texas for adoption. She is a nine year old bay Quarter Horse and Arabian cross. She is located at a foster home in Austin at this time. The adoption fee for the non-pregnant mares is $900. These mares need good homes!!!!

You will find that Blogbat links not only to blogs, commentators or other resources with which we agree, but also scares up a few of the other variety. This is based on a philosophy that only when one’s ideas are challenged that one’s ideals are sharpened or even truly known. As the saying goes, “know your foe, know yourself.”
