    How can someone be so ignorant, self centered, heartless, and apathetic to veto a bill helping stem-cell research.

    I don't care what he made on the SAT or how well he did in college, the man is an idiot.


    IF you disagree with me, then please post something that shows that Bush is right on this issue.

    How can you lefties continually harangue about stem cell research that may someday lead to a cure for something. I consider anyone that wants to spend MY tax dollars on THAT to be ignorant, self-centered, and willing to beleive just about anything.

    And, btw, just how many threads are you libs going to start on this topic, and in how many forums?

    "lefties" AND "righties" want to pursue stem-cell research with more money. Infact, the only support Bush is getting is from the christian fundamentalist.

    Even if stem cell research produces desireabke results such as being able to cure genetic problems, diseases and cancer who do you think is going to have the result made available to them?

    Do you think Willie Jackson is going to reap any benefit from it?

    Get real! Only the very rich will feel any benefit from the results of stem cell. Why then, are the dems so stuck on it?

    That would be some "righties," and where from the right he is getting support is nothing more than speculation. I don't see it as particularly a "Chrisitian" issue, so no sale on that one.

    I see it as something my tax dollars should not have fund. If you want to fund it, donate. No one's stopping you.

    And I guess you aren't even going to take a stab at my last question. So far, we have a thread on this topic in Politics, Religion, and Current Events. I'm sure Education can use one, and of course, Legal Matter since I'm sure y'all lefties will be accusing Bush of doing something unconstitutional before it's all over.

    That's pure bull shit. How can you be as dense as to say that your tax dollars shouldn't fund one of the only positive programs to come from our government in the last decade. You support killing people in other countries, but not saving American lives.


    I thought you were just making a poor attempt at a joke (similiar to the title I gave this thread). I'm sorry that 3 threads are enough get your panties in a wad.

    There is a reason government is funding stem cell research--private companies have given up on it, because it is a dead end for researchers. Private companies were all over it, but since it showed little promise, they have abandoned it. Government billions have not discovered a cure for cancer or AIDS, so don't sweat it too much.

    Or at least that's what I read while thumbing through "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Science" at a bookstore. It's not really one of my pet issues, so feel free to correct me.

    Did that book state whether they gave up because of the inability to produce desired results, or the inability to produce financially profitable results?

    Trust me, long term profit planning is something any company would take into consideration given the amount of profit that could be made if a Parkinson's or Alzheimer's, cancer or AIDS wonderdrug could be reasonably found.

    The problem is the scientists recognized that the research was going nowhere.

    And, in all honesty, I have NO moral problem with the use of stem cells for research. I welcome any attempt to attempt to cure those diseases through stem cell research. But it's not something that we should be throwing taxpayers money at.
