DailyDirt: Cool Animal Research

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

While there are some people out there trying to kickstop genetically modified organisms from being created, the progress of biotechnology doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Researchers are coming up with all kinds of new ways to look at mysterious biological processes, and here are just a few examples.

It’s not like anyone can stop genetic testing on animals, even if they wanted to. Even protesting against animal testing can land you in prison on “Terrorist” charges.

The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, co-sponsored by Senator Dianne Feinstein, is a federal law that states animal rights activists can be charged as “Terrorists”.


I just thought everyone should know about this. I never heard of this law until recently, and I’d hate to see anyone brought up on “Terrorism” charges.

Hehe, no. Umbrella Corp was probably an entity lining the pockets of the three Senators that passed the bill though ;).

What’s interesting about the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, is it only applies to businesses and technical institutes.

So if you catch your neighbor beating the crap out of a dog and report them, the police will arrest your neighbor.

If you catch a corporation beating the crap out of a dog and report it, the police will take YOU away.

God bless America!

I want a dog that can pick up after itself.

And I want a government that doesn’t shit on our heads.

The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act is only the last in a long line of laws meant to protect corporations at the expense of citizens and consumers. It’s meant to help corporations keep their ugly behavior secret and to scare journalists into keeping their mouths shut when those secrets become just to horrible to keep.
