    I don't know, could there possibly be any political considerations in charging the President of the United States with purjury? Were there preconditions in his testimony? Gee I don't know.

    *snicker* Yeah. Stuff like this is soooo much more important...

    S.1435 - Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act of 2009

    Introduced by Sam Brownback (R) Kansas

    Official Summary

    Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act of 2009 - Amends the federal criminal code to prohibit and to set penalties for:
    (1) creating or attempting to create a human-animal hybrid (a being with human and non-human tissue as specified in this Act);
    (2) transferring or attempting to transfer a human embryo into a non-human womb, or a non-human embryo into a human womb; or
    (3) transporting or receiving for any purpose a human-animal hybrid.

    Note: Found ^that^ gem while searching for this gem, the Kansas City Animal Health Corridor bill, which was voted on the same day as the Wilson censure vote.


    Animal health bill passes after some debate
    by Ken Newton
    Wednesday, September 16, 2009

    Few things happen easily in Congress these days, and a resolution mentioning St. Joseph generated a brisk discussion in the U.S. House on Tuesday.

    The bill was intended to recognize a Kansas City Animal Health Corridor, a zone between Columbia, Mo., and Manhattan, Kan., critical to research in veterinary care. Because of the presence of animal pharmaceutical concerns, St. Joseph got a specific mention.

    The measure passed Tuesday evening by a vote of 312 to 108, a curiously divided outcome for a bill originally placed among non-controversial suspension items destined for quick passage.

    Instead, the matter required a voice vote, though having no trouble reaching the two-thirds majority needed for a bill considered with rules suspended.

    The resolution would, among other things, recognize "the Kansas City Animal Health Corridor as the national center of the animal health industry based on the unmatched concentration of animal health and nutrition businesses and educational and research assets."
    Now, I like animals probably more than the next guy, but please. Is recognizing a geographical region as the national center of the animal health industry that "important?" Really?

    [quote=Devil505;1058261342]I looked everywhere & I can't find a definition of Adultery that says any "Inappropriate Act" or anything that was "Wrong"

    Have a link?


    Legal Definition of Adultery
    Voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and another person who is not their married spouse. ... Adultery: Voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and another person who is not their married spouse. In most countries, adultery is a legal ground for divorce (the other being, generally, cruelty).
    254k - 36 sec @ 56k
    Legal Definition of Adultery



    Again you are trying to play a game of semantics. It is getting old.

    If your daughter was sucking some guys shlong, would you consider that adultery if it was not her husband? If you went to court to divorce your wife for sucking some other mans cock, it would be given on the grounds of adultery.

    I notice you left this part out of the definition you listed...

    "The legal definition of adultery has preoccupied Courts for as long as there has been the concept of marriage."

    I also found this...

    "In the traditional English common law, adultery was a felony. Although the legal definition of "adultery" differs in nearly every legal system, the common theme is sexual relations outside of marriage, in one form or another." - [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adultery[/ame]

    You are trying to skirt around the spirit of the law and ignore it on semantic grounds. It would not stand in a US court of law.

    From a financial standpoint for the state? Yes it is.

    Any good publicity for a state generates income in one form or another. Being known as the center of the animal health industry is a good thing. Sort of like silicon vally or wine country for CA etc. It attracts investors etc.

    Claimed FACTS need proof ........ OPINIONS don't.


    Examples:

    Claimed Fact requiring proof:
    Pearl Harbor was attacked on 12/7/1941 (I should provide links to prove that claim if asked)

    Opinion requiring no proof:
    I like chocolate ice cream better than vanilla.




    See the difference?
    I know all that.

    It does not change the facts of my post.

    Your comments past and present are indeed hypocritical and it has been proved using your own posts time and time again. You have made many "claims" and did not back them up even when asked.

    You could lie and deny it, but that would make it even worse.

    Well could there have been possibly any political considerations for putting a sitting president through a civil trial which was unheard of before?

    Why is this thread still going?

    It didn't work... Most Americans still thinks the Obama health care plan sux. You all will just have to manufacture another outrage to try and distract the American public.

    Because a grand jury required it?

    It wasn't a grand jury that required it. You're confusing the civil case with the federal case

    We're not talking about the financial woes of a region (not a "state"). The issue, as introduced by rudedog, is that Congress should be doing "important things like running our country," instead of censuring Wilson for violating the rules of Congress.

    You seem to believe that, as far as properly utilizing "our time and money" is concerned, recognizing a geographical region as having a surplus of veterinary services is at least on par with ensuring that our government officials act with integrity and decorum.

    I disagree. And I seriously doubt that this bill will create an influx of tourist visits to the many veterinarian offices in the region.

    Tell me, what do you think of the animal-hybridization act introduced by Sam Brownback? Is that more or less important than ensuring that our government officials act like reasonable, mature, responsible adults in the commission of their duties?
