The country recently changed its constitution to ensure the protection of the "dignity" of plant life and passed a law last year guaranteeing rights for all creatures - from guinea pigs to goldfish.
If Swiss voters approve the referendum in March, every canton in the country will be obliged to appoint a lawyer to act on behalf of pets and barnyard animals in order to protect them from abuse.
"Pet keepers think that a so-called love for a guinea pig is enough," [animal lawyer Antoine Goetschel] told The Sunday Times. "But this ignores the animal's needs as a species, such as having a companion."
Obama wants to be involved in everything from banking to health insurance to the BCS in college football . . . but going to outer space should be done privately?
The Obama administration on Monday will propose in its new budget spending billions of dollars to encourage private companies to build, launch and operate spacecraft for NASA and others. Uncle Sam would buy its astronauts a ride into space just like hopping in a taxi.
The idea is that getting astronauts into orbit, which NASA has been doing for 49 years, is getting to be so old hat that someone other than the government can do it. It's no longer really the Right Stuff.
Well . . . why stop there?
Privatize the military and we'll buy protection from them.
So We Should Stick to Telling White Folks They're Articulate and Keep Complimenting Blacks on Their Rhythm?

The principal of an Islamic boarding school in Tangerang is vigorously denying allegations that he raped one of his teenage students. His defense: His “pet genie” did it.
[S]he claimed the principal changed the topic of conversation by saying that one of his genies had a crush on her. He reportedly promised that she would be given certain “metaphysical powers” if she agreed to have sex with the genie.
The principal has denied raping the girl and reportedly told her parents that his genie was responsible for the pregnancy. He said the genie must have been angry because it had not been fed for months. He is understood to have said the genie “borrowed” his body at the time of the rape.
The White House's massive stimulus plan funded 599,108 jobs in the fourth quarter, administration officials said Saturday.
One thing is for certain: The first jobs tally, which showed 640,000 jobs were created, contained numerous errors. After that October report, the administration changed the criteria for counting stimulus-funded jobs. The goal was to make it simpler for recipients to accurately report headcounts.
Recipients no longer have to determine whether a job was "created" or "saved" by stimulus funds, only that it was "funded" by the Recovery Act. Also, the reports only track jobs on a quarterly basis instead of keeping a running total.

All that motoring is contributing to traffic jams and pollution, according to state Sen. Alan Lowenthal (D-Long Beach), and on Thursday he won Senate approval of a proposal he hopes will prompt cities and businesses to reduce the availability of free parking.
"Free parking has significant social, economic and environmental costs," Lowenthal said. "It increases congestion and greenhouse gas emissions.’’

The 30-second spot shows two men excitedly watching the game, before their hands brush as they both reach into a bowl of chips. Suddenly, the two begin making out, much to the shock of a guy sitting close by.
Bin Laden has mentioned climate change and global warming in past messages, but the latest tape was his first dedicated to the topic. The speech, which included almost no religious rhetoric, could be an attempt by the terror leader to give his message an appeal beyond Islamic militants.

The conference is expected to agree a $500 million, five-year fund for President Karzai to “buy off” insurgents who are not ideologically committed to destroying the West.Great Britain will basically buy off jihadists who declare that they have seen the light and are ready not to spread the will of Allah.

Weir loves fashion, and his costumes tend to be on the avant-garde—some would say extreme—side. When the three-time U.S. champion redesigned his free skate costume before the U.S. champions, he had Handler add a tuft of white fox fur to the left shoulder.
Weir said he thought the costume was “lovely,” but Friends of Animals disagreed.

The head of a think tank on marriage and family testified at the Proposition 8 federal trial today that same-sex marriage would weaken marriage and possibly lead to fewer heterosexual marriages, more divorces and "more public consideration of polygamy."That's a snippet from the ongoing trial against Proposition 8, which defines marriage in California to be between a man and a woman.
Putting an end to two and a half years of litigation, the online dating site eHarmony.com has reached an agreement to pay a half a million dollars and make its website more “welcoming” to seekers of same-sex matches, settling a class-action lawsuit brought by gays and lesbians in California.
As part of the California agreement, the Compatible Partners site will display the eHarmony logo “in a prominent position,” and will state that the service is “brought to you by eHarmony.” The site currently states that it is “powered by eHarmony.”
I think this is why the same-sex marriage movement has so many opponents. Why should it matter that a private company - eHarmony - had as its original business plan the idea that it would help hetereosexual couples find one another. If gays felt that they were in need of the same services, then I would expect some gay entrepreneur to produce those services and be rewarded for his or her time and effort.
Reading this, I am struck once again that the same-sex movement is less about "rights" and more about "agenda." The definition of words become increasingly irrelevant and one area where I see that happening is between tolerance and acceptance. I do not have to accept as "normal" or "good" the homosexual lifestyle as part of being tolerant, but that is what is demanded - an utter embrace by my institutions or nothing at all.
Think it cannot happen with the Catholic Church? Look at cases that have been tried against California's Unruh Act. In Catholic Charities of Sacramento, Inc. v. Superior Court (2004), the court held that Catholic Charities violated California law in refusing to provide a health insurance plan that covered contraceptives, as such were inimical to Catholic teaching.
And in North Coast Women’s Care Group, Inc. v. Superior Court (2008), physicians in San Diego were held to have violated the Unruh Act when they denied fertility treatment to a lesbian couple - except note that they personally denied the treatment to the couple but referred them to other doctors in their medical group who would have given them treatment. Not good enough. “A religious objector has no … constitutional right to an exemption from a neutral and valid law of general applicability on the ground that compliance with that law is contrary to the objector’s religious beliefs.”
Tolerance for differing viewpoints? I don't see it here.

Recruitment boss Nicole Mamo, 48, tried to post an advert for a £5.80-an-hour domestic cleaner on her local Jobcentre Plus website.
She ended the job offer by saying that any applicants for the post 'must be very reliable and hard-working'.
But when Ms Mamo called the Jobcentre Plus in Thetford, Norfolk, the following day she was told that her advert would not be displayed.
A Jobcentre Plus worker claimed that the word 'reliable' meant they could be sued for discriminating against unreliable workers.
Huh, I bet it was really the request for English speaking workers, which - like "truck" meaning "redneck American Conservative racist" - really is "non-hijab, non-burqua wearing types."
This isn't the Democratic party of our fathers and grandfathers. This is the party of Woodstock hippies. I was at Woodstock — I built the stage. And when everything fell apart, and people were fighting for peanut-butter sandwiches, it was the National Guard who came in and saved the same people who were protesting them. So when Hillary Clinton a few years ago wanted to build a Woodstock memorial, I said it should be a statue of a National Guardsman feeding a crying hippie.

But closer inspection – which many of her male fans undoubtedly undertook – revealed that the five-times Wimbledon champion was actually preserving her modesty with flesh-coloured underwear.
She explained to fans: ‘My dress for the Australian Open has been one of my best designs ever! It’s all about the slits and V-neck. I am wearing undershorts the same colour as my skin, so it gives the slits in my dress the full effect!’
Whenever aspiring writers ask me for advice, I usually tell 'em this:
Don't just write there, do something. Learn how to shingle a roof, or tap-dance, or raise sled dogs. Because if you don't do anything, you wind up like Obama and Fineman – men for whom words are props and codes and metaphors but no longer expressive of anything real.
America is becoming a bilingual society, divided between those who think a pickup is a rugged vehicle useful for transporting heavy-duty items from A to B, and those who think a pickup is coded racism.

Legal papers, which the pair allegedly signed this week, reveal they plan to share their fortune equally and custody of their six children.
What fortune to divide? They're not married.
Another group of Scientologists distributed antibiotic pills. "The doctors said give everyone with wounds antibiotics," said Italian volunteer Marina.

Instead, he believed he had another, higher calling. Desme announced Friday that he was leaving baseball to enter the priesthood, walking away after a breakout season in which he became MVP of the Arizona Fall League.
A lifelong Catholic, Desme thought about becoming a priest for about a year and a half. He kept his path quiet within the sports world, and his plan to enter a seminary this summer startled the A's when he told them Thursday night.
"I love the game, but I aspire to higher things," he said. "I know I have no regrets."
"The spread of multimedia communications and its rich 'menu of options' might make us think it sufficient simply to be present on the Web," but priests are "challenged to proclaim the Gospel by employing the latest generation of audiovisual resources," he said.There are a number of superb blogs written by priests. I wish mine would get on-line and post his damn fine sermons.
The message, prepared for the World Day of Communications, suggests such possibilities as images, videos, animated features, blogs, and Web sites.

I apologize in advance to those who wish for all messages on this list serve to be dedicated to analytical discussions of statutes and cases in family law, a position which I generally support myself. In defense of my decision to post this email on the list serve, it occurred to me that I could make an argument that this relates to the collection of receivables. So, forgive me if this does not sound very collection-of-receivables focused.
Although the following may well violate the rules of this list serve, the devastating earthquake in Haiti which killed and maimed so many hundreds of thousands of people and continues to subject millions of men, women, and children to the horrors of a slow death from lack of clean water, food, medicine, and medical assistance compels me to suggest to the members of this list serve, many of whom have done so much for others in need for so many years [Harriet Bruhai, Levitt and Quinn, etc. not to mention the families they may assist on a daily basis], the possibility of sending a letter to clients and former clients who have not yet paid their bills in full as follows:
In an effort to assist the people in Haiti who have become the victims of the recent devastating earthquake which killed and maimed so many and which continues to subject millions of men, women, and children to the horrors of a slow death from lack of clean water, food, medicine, and medical assistance, our office has decided to credit your account with $_______ for any contribution you may choose to make to the relief effort in Haiti. If you have made any contribution since the earthquake, or choose to make one at this time, please simply send a note to my office confirming that you have done so, and your next billing statement will reflect a credit for the amount you have donated up to a maximum credit of $________.
As in any crisis such as this, there are always individuals who attempt to take advantage of the circumstances and seek to obtain donations without intending to actually spend the donations on the rescue of the people of Haiti, or they may have perfectly good intentions, but lack the resources to insure that the funds they try to dedicate to those purposes actually benefit the people to the same extent those same contributions would make if made to an established charity with sufficient resources and personnel in the United States and in Haiti to minimize the risk of the donation not actually reaching the intended beneficiaries. Thus, our office is suggesting that you consider making a donation through The Red Cross or through Artists for Peace and Justice, Project Haiti. To donate to the Red Cross for Haiti relief, go to RedCross.org, hit "donate now" button at top, and then select Haiti Relief and Development. The money will go directly to relief efforts in Haiti. Or call 1-800-Red-Cross. According to the Red Cross, a $100 contribution can provide 10 families with 20 water cans with clean water, a blanket, or other supplies to permit people to survive. Artists for Peace and Justice claims to be able to send 100% of the amounts donated directly to doctor and community organizer, Father Rick Frechette, who runs two pediatric hospitals, street schools in the slums, and other facilities for those in need. You can donate on line or send checks to Artists For Peace & Justice, 206 S. Brand Blvd., Glendale, California, 91204. Of course, there are a number of charitable organizations providing benefits and you are free to choose any such entity if you wish to take advantage of this proposal.
You may wish to consult your tax advisor with regard to the deductibility of any contribution you may wish to make as it is possible that you may have tax benefits from such a contribution which may not be available to you without making such a contribution.
For those of you who wish to consider sending such a letter and can afford to do so, when deciding whether you can afford to do so and what amount to include in your letter, you may wish to consider the fact that overhead for most of us is a significant portion of collections, and then income taxes consumes another significant portion. Even if you allocate the overhead to the fees previously collected and consider the amount of the credit you are willing to offer to your clients as only subject to income taxes, the net amount you are giving up by making the proposal does not need to be very significant while the impact on the lives of people in great need will be very dramatic. Somewhat analogous to The Gates Foundation analysis of where they send $20 million every week by deciding where the money will have the greatest impact on the lives of the recipients of the benefits. At this point in time in Haiti, modest contributions are sufficient to save people from dying of dehydration, starvation, and injuries which would not be life-threatening if they received even the most rudimentary of medical care.
Undoubtedly, many of you have already made great contributions in varying ways to various charities, including those dedicated to the people of Haiti, and many of you may have other suggestions which are superior to what I am doing in my office, but it did occur to me that many of you may wish to do this or something like this.
With regard to my claim that this memo is "arguably" related to a family law issue of significance to members of the list, one could certainly argue that the public perception of members of the family law bar is a matter of concern to all of us as is the collection of receivables. I respectfully suggest that sending such a letter to clients and former clients who have not yet paid their bills in full will tend to positively impact the public image of the family law attorneys (and all other attorneys, accountants, mental health professionals, etc.) who elect to send such a letter. Further, sending such a letter may also assist the lawyer or accountant or other professional in collecting the balance of the bill which remains unpaid. OK, no empirical evidence to support this speculation, but I can virtually guarantee you with some empirical support, that you will feel good when you get those notes from clients and former client who tell you that they have made the contribution. You may even inspire them to make larger contributions and to pass along that spirit to others who have the ability to do so. Without Bill Gates making the decision he made would Warren Buffet have made the 44 billion contribution to his foundation? Would Branson have made his enormous contribution to charity?
Now, go out there and send those "collection letters." You will not be paid what your clients contractually agreed to pay you, but you just may regard the benefits as superior to those you would have received if you had been paid in full.

As awareness of environmental concerns has grown, therapists say they are seeing a rise in bickering between couples and family members over the extent to which they should change their lives to save the planet.
While no study has documented how frequent these clashes have become, therapists agree that the green issue can quickly become poisonous because it is so morally charged. Friends or family members who are not devoted to the environmental cause can become irritated by life choices they view as ostentatiously self-denying or politically correct.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she will travel to Haiti on Saturday to see earthquake relief efforts first hand, deliver supplies and meet Haitian President Rene Preval.All accounts point to a country on the brink of collapse and one where the relief effort - that would be getting FOOD AND WATER to the survivors - is severely hampered by the devastation . . . so let's send in a major US political figure requiring security and sure to bring along her own entourage requiring thet same FOOD AND WATRE the survivors do.

What made the situation that much more tense was sightings of gangs of young men with machetes. On Wednesday they were seen getting into stores and taking all the supplies they could carry. The armed men were seen marching up and down the streets with machetes raised and the competition among the gangs turned quite fierce.

Recently, I heard another lawyer make the statement that a person's court filing is not a letter to Santa Claus. I like that analogy. Children can ask Santa for anything, including a new baby brother or a rocket to fly to the moon. You have to have a legal basis for your claim, backed by a factual one - you can't simply stroll into court and file a motion, say, to have your neighbor dress her children more conservatively because you feel her 16-year-old's skirts are too high.

They come to an agreement as to who gets the grand piano and who will spend Christmas with little Octavia. A stipulated Judgment is written up and it's all over . . . with each side having racked up anywhere from $25,000 to $50,000 in attorney fees.
