Angela Merkel Gets Stiff (yikes) Competition


Ok this photo is from Bush's legendary veto moment, in which he made it public policy to more highly value the life of a few cells over the lives of sufferers of Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease and countless other deadly diseases. But look at the photo more closely...it is clear that stem cells were not on the mind of the Pretzeldent, he is seriously checking out that blonde! Sporting veto wood and a come hither look, Bush eyes his prize. Look out lady, he has groped before, he will grope again...

    Lets get the facts straight what Bush done was vetod a bill that called for using taxpayer monies to do stem cell research, he did not veto stem cell research that is still going on in the private sector where it belongs not in the hands of the government.

  2. No, that's not accurate either.

    Bush vetoed a bill that would've eased restrictions on what type of stem-cells could receive taxpayer money. But the bill didn't "call for using taxpayer money"--that is, his failure to veto this bill wouldn't have costed taxpayer a dime. More stem-cell research would've been eligible to receive funds, but this bill didn't appropriate the funds.

    A subtle difference, but I agree with Rocky that we should "get the facts straight."

  3. Also Rocky can you clarify:

    In a comment to one of the below posts, you say "At one time your little darling was a hypothetical one, would you have given her up to save another life. My guess is not." That indicates to me that you believe stem-cell research is murder, as President Bush does.

    But above you say, "he did not veto stem cell research that is still going on in the private sector where it belongs not in the hands of the government." So, you believe stem cell research belongs in the private sector.

    I don't understand. If you believe it is murder, why is murder ok in the private sector and not in the public sector?

    If I'm getting something wrong here, forgive me. Please clarify.

  4. What I don't get is how using the stem cells to save lives is murder but throwing them away is noble. It just seems to me that basic decency is totally lost here.

  5. Just what kind of religion does Bush practice that allows him to send thousands of our soldiers to kill & be killed for bald faced lies? How does he justify the murder, maiming & crippling of innocent soldiers & civilians who have never done us any harm while he is protecting a cluster of frozen cells that have no face, no hands, no legs, no blood, no brain and most certainly no smilie face as depicted by Brownback in his cutesy sketches.

    Just goes to show that our religious fanatics are just as bad as their religious fanatics.
