Planet Of The Apes

Check out what the new socialist (ie. democrats) government in Spain is doing. Once again, nobody could make this stuff up!

The Spanish Socialist Party will introduce a bill in the Congress of Deputies calling for "the immediate inclusion of (simians) in the category of persons, and that they be given the moral and legal protection that currently are only enjoyed by human beings." The PSOE's justification is that humans share 98.4% of our genes with chimpanzees, 97.7% with gorillas, and 96.4% with orangutans.
The party will announce its Great Ape Project at a press conference tomorrow. An organization with the same name is seeking a UN declaration on simian rights which would defend ape interests "the same as those of minors and the mentally handicapped of our species."

According to the Project, "Today only members of the species Homo sapiens are considered part of the community of equals. The chimpanzee, the gorilla, and the orangutan are our species's closest relatives. They possess sufficient mental faculties and emotional life to justify their inclusion in the community of equals."

Hey, why bother with such trivial matters like terrorism (remember the 300 slaughtered a couple years ago in Spain?) or high unemployment, or out of control taxes when you've got to give citizenship to a bunch of monkeys?

Hat tip: Little green footballs

So, tell me, do they have to pay taxes too?
