    Talking Goldfish will protect world leaders' water from terror attacks



    A tank of goldfish has been installed by security experts at today's G20 summit in South Korea to help guard against toxic terror attacks on delegates.
    Six fish will be kept in an underground aquarium and will be used to test the purity of drinking and drainage water at the host complex in Seoul. Any sign of illness will spark a full-scale terrorist alert.

    Waiting for the ACLU to chime in that goldfish lives are just as valuable as humans.

    Goldfish are more valuable than some of the humans I 've seen.
    The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government.
    -Thomas Jefferson

    That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants. Jeff Cooper'

    Your so right.
    SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army

    That's PETA's job!

    The bizarre security measure is not sitting well with animal activists, namely the rights group PETA, which is known for its provocative protests and campaigns like trying to re-brand fish as "sea kittens."
    "Protecting world leaders is very serious, but so is protecting animals who feel pain just as people do," said PETA's executive vice president, Tracy Reiman.
    "There are a variety of modern scientific methods that would better protect world leaders and keep fish from enduring agonizing deaths from contaminated water," she wrote in a letter to South Korean authorities.

    I agree with the PETA lunatic. There are better methods. She and some other high profile members should fly to South Korea and trade spots with the goldfish.
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity. Sigmund Freud
