Or really anyone being fed to lions.


Good point. We are more enlightened than the Romans, even if we do share the same hand-on-heart salute. We now have unparalleled social advances such as Equal Employment Opportunities. We can't allow just Christians as food (ahem! I mean Gladiators). Thanks to Equal Employment Opportunities we have to give equal consideration. We cannot discriminate based on their Age, Disability, Heritage, Race, Religion, Gender, Sexual Orientation, or even if they are Pregnant. So, it is important that we allow Pregnant Teenage Jewish Immigrant Handicapped Latino Lesbians every right to participate in Gladiator games in the Colosseum. Especially in these tough economic times, it would be providing a social service to our country to employ as many people as we can, from all walks of life.

Besides, I'm sure P.E.T.A. would have something harsh and severe to say about Animal Cruelty if we were feeding the lions entirely on a Christian diet. It's important for the lions to get a well-rounded diet. You can't just eat Chinese all your life and be happy and content. Sometimes you need some Mexican, Italian, Lebanese, Indian, and Greek food too for variety.

America guzzles our worlds resources and pollutes the atmosphere more than any other country



China overtakes US as world's biggest CO2 emitter
China has overtaken the United States as the world's biggest producer of carbon dioxide, the chief greenhouse gas, figures released today show.

The surprising announcement will increase anxiety about China's growing role in driving man-made global warming and will pile pressure onto world politicians to agree a new global agreement on climate change that includes the booming Chinese economy. China's emissions had not been expected to overtake those from the US, formerly the world's biggest polluter, for several years, although some reports predicted it could happen as early as next year.
