    *** Fishing Yanks the Best Parents from the (Gene) Pool ***

    Interesting read, and yet another indication of how humans are altering nature. It reminds me of an article I read in an outdoor magazine a few years ago about the effects of trophy fishing. That one I couldn’t locate, but the same photographs are in this abstract.

    *** What’s at Stake in the Off-Label Promotion Debate: It’s NOT Free Speech! ***

    Judge Denny Chin of the 2:1 majority is an Obama nominee. The 2nd Court cited a precedent:

    “The 2nd Circuit agreed, noting that the U.S. Supreme Court had in 2011 found that speech that aided in drug marketing was a form of constitutionally protected expression.”

    THAT case had Justice Sotomayor joining Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito.

    I don’t see BHO appointing anybody to the SCOTUS who hasn’t been fully approved by Big Everything. Or to any other major government post, for that matter.

  2. Right, Zach. It’s all a big, hidden, secret conspiracy between the pharma industry, the president, the Supreme Court, and the illuminati.
