Someone must of translated Johnathan Swift into Chinese, for they have a modest drug business... of powdered baby.
The grim trade is being run from China where corrupt medical staff are said to be tipping off medical companies when babies are aborted or delivered still-born.
The tiny corpses are then bought, stored in household refrigerators in homes of those involved in the trade before they are removed and taken to clinics where they are placed in medical drying microwaves.
There is a huge demand for alternative Chinese remedies - which include ground up rhino horns.
Better keep Richard Lugar well away from the Far East, then, if they're using RINOs in that way. No, that is not their highest and best use.
Lugar is getting primaried and is using most every trick in the moderate's book, including making the challenger look like a wingnut, reaching across to the other party for extra votes and making himself out to be the only reasonable choice. State treasurer Richard Mourdock looks to have him beat, and the closer he gets to losing, the more Lugar looks like Bill Milliken, getting bitterer by the year as he aged into RINO dependency.
Lugar had a decent dose of class over the years, but seems to have lost it along with any political future. Indiana law precludes a third-party or independent run for folks who lost a primary, so a Murkowski/Lieberman route won't hunt in the Hoosier State.
France is in for a hard adjustment if incoming president Hollande really wants to declare war on finance. What do you replace it with? A slow grind into state-run autarky and equal-but-poor living somewhere north of Cuban wage levels? We've yet to see a democratic socialist state that lived up to both ends of the bargain.
