Yeah right, the FDA says that cloned food is fine. The same FDA that approved how many drugs that have killed people? I lost count after a few dozen of those....

If anyone has the link where you can watch the debate on the "inter" net, please post thx.

What, exactly, is the point of trying to deny Kucinich access to the debates? If you want to dig his campaign grave, give him a podium and let him do it himself.

Science says cloned animals and uncloned animals are unsafe for human consumption.

Re: the NV poll - why are we still listening to pollsters? Even putting aside their failure in NH, it shouold be clear that the decision-making done by people at a caucus is very different than those taking a telephone poll. The results mean squat.

Regarding the whole Myspace thing...parents need to be more involved with their kids. Be truthful about things like sex predators but not alarmist. More kids are sexually assaulted by family members than strangers anyway. My daughter has had a myspace and a facebook for years and so do I. The rule is that she cannot be friends with anyone over 18 and she must know the people she is friends with outside the Internet world. Parents shouldn't expect a corporation to do their parenting for them. Everyone knows the more you restrict something...the more attractive it is.

What a bunch of corporate douchebags at NBC. I'm surprised they invited anyone besides Hillary to their "debate", considering how much money they're making on her and Bush's pre-emptive war of choice.

I don't have cable. Is there a happening political bar in Seattle that will air the debates with the sound on?

They already decided that Kucinich must be present - at least the courts did.

The main problem with cloned food is the lack of genetic diversity and the high probability of wildfire epidemics in foodstocks. It's just a bad idea - and there's a reason why France outlawed it.
