Thanks for this post - it's too early for me to read it (gotta wake up the brain ya know) - but I appreciate the effort it took to gather all this.
I am going to share it with my sister.
She and I had a conversation Wednesday about stem cell research and how much of this election is focused around it.
She has a dd who could potentially benefit from SCR based on what is said by Kerry and Kerry supporters.
My sis feels torn though - on her stance on it.
Candice you are dead on.
"The democratic party counts on the ingnorance of the masses. This is not to say that all democrats are ignorant but many are among the least educated, least experienced and least mature."
Wow! What a statement. It's statements like these that make me actually want to allign myself with the Democratic Party. How completely and personally insulting you are being to half the U.S. population.
Well, the claim by Bush that he's the first president to fund this research is pretty much smoke and mirrors as it was late 1998 before the ability to grow embryonic stem cells was discovered. So, Bush is the first predident that has had the issue to deal with. The mis-direction tap dance of this administration is part of the reason I want them out.
Also, I did post an interesting article about some of the reality behind Bush and his science funding. Even if you support him, it's wise to take some of the more extravagant claims with a healthy grain of salt and research OUTSIDE of pro-life sites.
I will try to get back to the rest of your post later, these were just a couple of the things that jumped out.
Oh please, spare me.
You can only be a victim if you want to be a victim but I guess that goes along with the victim mentality so many lefties like to promote.
I said many not most or all...if the shoe fits...be offended.
I just find it interesting that the only way you can make your point is by denegrating those who disagree with your point of view.
Hum, many vs. most or all. So if I say many conservatives are close-minded hypocrites you wouldn't be offended?
