6:00 PM -- Enlightened thinking from Spain via the Think Spain Website:

    The socialist PSOE party is apparently intent on introducing a bill aimed at giving apes the same rights as man, "and the immediate inclusion of these animals as people." As a result, the bill adds that apes "should have the same moral and legal protection that humans currently enjoy."

    Fernando Sebastian, the bishop of Tudela has termed the measure as "making oneself looking ridiculous in the name of progress, and then what about the rights of the fighting bulls?" Meanwhile, other political commentators have stated that as a result of these measures, it will not be long before apes names will start appearing on the electoral rolls.
And your problem with that is...?

Incorrect, Larry is a monkey not an ape. Apes are considered more intelligent and a higher form of life than a monkey.

Nobody wants Larry in their voting bloc.

Seven,
"Incorrect, Larry is a monkey not an ape. Apes are considered more intelligent and a higher form of life than a monkey.

So, do you classify yourself as a superfamily bigot?

I'm willing to let Larry join my voting bloc and I assure you he will not be the only monkey who votes with me.

Monkeys, apes, and humansGÇöwho share many traits not found in other primatesGÇötogether make up the suborder Anthropoidea. Apes and humans together make up the superfamily Hominoidea, a grouping that emphasizes the close relationship among the species of these two groups.

You can have Larry. I was commenting on your incorrect statement that Larry was an Ape. He is still not an ape and is generally considered an inferior intellect to an ape. Glad that you want a being (a monkey) to be classified as your kind of voter. Me, I would like educated people.

You say Hominoidea,
I say Anthropoidea...
Let's call the whole thing off.
Thanks for the support, CLG (and muchos gracias, Spanish Socialists), but I'm not entirely sure I want to be recognized as one of Brooksevens' conspecifics.

I've noticed over the years that academics confuse "educated" with "intelligent". Many of us have had the experience of working with "educated" people with the "right degree" from the "right university" who were completely useless. Knowing a bunch of facts doesn't necessarily mean that you can do anything useful with the information.

Larry,

Seven only wants educated people to join his bloc. I'd guess its an effort at tokenism.
My bloc already has it all but there is always room for more monkey business.

Micheal Jackson likes to cuddle with Monkeys.

"Micheal Jackson likes to cuddle with Monkeys."


Michael (btw- educated people normally check their spelling) Jackson
also likes to cuddle young boys.

Are you casting dispersions on monkeys or young boys? Or are you equating inviting someone into a voting bloc with wanting to cuddle them?

Are you looking to cuddle a bunch of educated people?

Do you really feel that your closer relatives that are apes are really that much more deserving than Larry?

You might want to surrender or at least walk away (figuratively, of course)
