This explains why BO continues to populate his administration with rats, most recently John Kerry, Jack Yew, and Chuck Hagel. However, credit where credit is due: BO has been cleared of charges that he exaggerates the effects of sequestration; in fact, he was soft-pedaling the dangers. Yesterday the incomparable Maxine Waters let the real truth slip when she revealed that sequestration could cost as many as 170 million jobs. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2013/02/28/maxine_waters_over_170_million_jobs_could_be_lost_due_to_sequestration.html

I thought you were joking about 170 million jobs lost.

Yep, Maxine Waters is that stupid.

It's absolutely stunning that nothing in that multi-term Congresswoman's mind raised a red flag when she uttered that figure:

That's like a car salesman accidentally telling you that the pickup you're looking at costs $600,000 - and not noticing his mistake.

Don't believe anything Maxine Waterhead says.

The New York Times has published a science and technology story about Duke researchers who have used one animal’s brain to get another animal to react.

In One Rat Thinks, and Another Reacts, the Times writer James Gorman reports that “Miguel Nicolelis, known for successfully demonstrating brain-machine connections, like the one in which a monkey controlled a robotic arm with its thoughts, said this was the first time one animal’s brain had been linked to another.”

Well, Nicolelis may know rat research, but he’s not in politics.

If he was, he’d recognize that getting one rat to think and another...
