Caturday Reads: Dogma vs. Karma-Karma-ChameleonPosted: April 21, 2012
- via TED.com… Moral behavior in animals (video: 16 mins + transcript and subtitles).
Wonk sez: Animals can too haz morality! Which is why my atheisht, feminisht, socialisht kitties are not fans of Romney or Obama “dogma” (and can I just say how sad it is that our 2012 election cycle has been reduced to supporters of both empty suits defending the strapping of dogs to cars and the eating of dogmeat? Seriously… Honeybadger 2012!)
- from Joyce Arnold… Super PACS and Sesame Street: Court OKs Political Ads on Public Broadcasting
Wonk sez: We’ve been reduced to an idiocracy of empty acronyms… PBS, CTW (Children’s Television Workshop), NPR, PAC… less and less of it means anything of substance anymore.
Wonk sez: There’s still some hope left in public broadcasting media. Better hang your hat on what you can before it too gets subsumed by a SuperDuperPac.
- USA Today… Women lag in life-expectancy gains
Wonk sez: Not only is the life expectancy of American women lagging, but, in many U.S. counties, daughters are living shorter lives than their mothers. Please take the time to read and pass along to your friends. This is disturbing.
- h/t Liz Warren via facebook… END THE FREE RIDE: What if GE paid its fair share in taxes?
Wonk sez: You know what else we could do if GE paid its fair share? We could keep the U.S. postal mail going on Caturdays too.
