"Chinese students come up to me and say, 'Wow, you know, what can we do? We had no idea...'"

"That's the story that's put out, [the elephants are] anesthetized, the tusks are taken out, and they're patted on the bottom and sent out to grow a new set."

Chinese students seem to think we have no word for bullshit.

What?

Communists LIE to their citizens as a matter of ordinary behavior?

How could that possibly be?

This is cognative dissonance for leftist enviros. They can't possibly hold a Communist contry at fault for anything. I'm sure they will figure out that its really the USAs fault that the Chinese are destroying world species to feed their jones for Ivory.

Tom Freidman approves. Lies are for the common good.

Same for rhino horn. After nap time the rhino trots off and grows a new one.

Unfortunately doesn't work for tiger penis or shark fin.

Not like the Chinese give a shit.

Red Chinese kids are extraordinarily dumb liars and you'd think they'd be better at it.

Score another for unfettered capitalism.

How can we determine if an elephant thinks the same way we do about death or tusks? We can see that they behave in a certain way when a member of the herd dies, and we can observe that they do things with the tusks of the dead, but we can't assume that they think a certain way about those things.

Hey, that sounds like a plan the Tea Party folks can use with those Establishment Republicans. They should start with Karl Rove.
