If you really want to get depressed, read the comments for that last video. Just when I think this country might be starting to become sane again, I see things like that.
Wouldn't it be amazing if government didn't interfere with science? Wouldn't it be amazing if the government actually promoted science, instead of cutting (or in the case of this research, banning) funding and pandering to the religious right? History is filled with times where governments and religions have stood in the way of science. And look how things always turn out. So let's just cut the crap, and allow science to proceed. We need more funding to go to science. Drug companies are too busy maintaining the erections of 80-year-old men to devote themselves to low-profit research that might actually help people. The government needs to issue challenges and reward those who provide results. We don't know what embryonic stem cell research will do, but that's the whole point of research. And while other forms of stem cell research might show more promise, that does not mean that other research should be ignored just because the religious right says so. Also, just because a cure hasn't been found with something yet, doesn't mean it won't be at some point in the future. Of course, if we continue to "leave no child behind" while not pushing our best and brightest toward the future, we won't have any scientists left to do any research at all. But that's a rant for another day.
Perhaps Bush & the other wingnuts just think that someone from the future will travel back in time in a Delorean and cure all the diseases out there. But that's just not going to happen. So let's explore every damn option we can, shall we?
His race against J.D. Hayworth has turned into a statistical dead heat. I wanted to finally feel like I had done something this election year. I also requested a sign to put up in my window. I don't know how many people would actually see it, since I doubt many people look at my window, but oh well. I'll just be glad to be doing something to get Foghorn Leghorn out of office after he put those despicable notes up on his signs that basically implied that Harry Mitchell was going around stealing campaign signs.
In case anyone else wants to request a sign, you can go here.
Many states allow you to request a ballot ahead of time. So go here and find out how to get your ballot early. That way you don't have to wait in line, and you have no excuse for being lazy. This election is much to important to miss out on.
