    Arizona bill targets 'human-animal hybrids'

    Arizona bill targets 'human-animal hybrids'

    The Arizona state Senate on Thursday passed a bill making it illegal for a person to "intentionally or knowingly creating a human-animal hybrid."

    The bill, which passed 16 to 12, would prohibit anyone in the state from "creating or attempting to create an in vitro human embryo by any means other than fertilization of a human egg by a human sperm."

    Well remember....these are the same folks who fought MLK day recognition for longer than any other state. So that should tell you a little bit about them.

    In our defense that was because it also would make George Washington's and Abe Lincoln's birthdays into one holiday to make room for MLK day, otherwise you'd have three holidays in one month, February.

    MLK is great and but not great enough to marginalize Lincoln and Washington, at least that was the argument.

    This coming from a State more screwed up than AZ. . Just love some of your elected officials and their ideas.

    Actually, if you new the history it was because of the Governor at the time. As stated earlier, it had a lot to do on how to shift holidays to make room for MLK. and the Gov was a bit off.

    I saw nothing wrong with the discouraging of teachers with thick accents. There has to be some standard in language for teaching to be effective. The "right" of the teacher to not speak clearly in a language all the kids are expected to understand is of far less importance than the rights of the kids to get an adequate education.

    But Martin Luther King Day is in January not February. So there wouldn't be three holidays in one month.

    To be fair, at least to my knowledge and I lived there at the time, Arizona is the only state in the union that established MLK day by plebiscite.

    Endorse direct democracy or oppose it (and I oppose it), Arizonans were the only Americans to vote MLK day into law. Give them some love for that.

    As I recall the argument against MLK day was that he was a communist subversive with a second-rate mind who plagiarized his master's thesis and routinely cheated on his wife. I always thought, well, gee, and for all of that, he managed to profoundly change this country: give the man a holiday!

    That was the CLAIM. I think there was alot more behind it that you are willing to overlook.

    You know it wouldve gotten to this point if the Feds actually did what they're supposed to do and follow the law.
