I would like to hear more about Cantor shorting the dollar so he can make the big bucks when we default. Is this true? Shouldn't that be big news and a look inside about who the Republicans really work for?

China is now doing more human genome mapping than we are http://www.newsweek.com/2011/04/24/high-quality-dna.html.

This should give us pause for thought. Do we want China to have the right to "own" genome intellectual property? China will be able to make much more advances in medicine due to their lower ethical standards. Do you think for a moment that they will hesitate to do experiments considered abhorrent here on their prisoners or their people? They will undoubtedly discover some very useful things from this research and then will be very happy to sell to us. Will China-Med be the next pharmaceutical giant? Is the world really flat?

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
