"Washington - In an 8-1 decision tday the Supreme Court ruled that the dead cannot escape repayment of student loans. The decision is likely to be seen as a defeat for the rights of the deceased, many of whom in the words of deceased persons' rights advocate James L Mason Jr 'had hoped not to be hounded beyond the grave.'
NAIS ia National Animal Identification System. All livestock would have to be identified at birth or hatching with a permanent tag supplied by the government. The animal would be tracked from birth to death. If the animal came down with any disease that could be transfered to man, such as mad cow disease or avian influenza, the animal would be traced back to the birth place. I would like to know what-if any good would come out of this! An animal that gets a disease did not necessarily have the disease at birth and it looks like the government wants to blame the breeder for the disease. I would like to add that all properties having animals, whether just for pets or actual breeders would be identifed, GPS coordinates would be obtained, and all the animals would be given the tags to show their origin.
