Raging Right Wing Republican

For those of us who are politically informed, and therefore Republican.

All we are saying is give peas a chance

Forget animal rights: it's time for plant rights! Plants have feelings too, you know. The Swiss have bravely taken the first step in heralding the banner of the next civil rights challenge: "At the request of the Swiss government, an ethics panel has weighed in on the 'dignity' of plants and opined that the arbitrary killing of flora is morally wrong."

Morally wrong? According to them, plants must be treated with "dignity." This means that "we may not use them just as we please, even if the plant community is not in danger, or if our actions do not endanger the species, or if we are not acting arbitrarily."

People; plants. What's the difference? A salad is the moral equivalent of the Holocaust.

It's not fair; we try hard here in America to parody Europe, and then they have to ruin everything by doing it for us.

Funny, I couldn't have said it better myself, Count Zaroff.
