I believe the system is corrupt and full of self serving SOB's that have lost sight of what America truly wants. So, I avoid political discussions. I'd rather remain ignorant at times. This is one of those times I can't.
Senate OKs expansion of stem cell research
Vote, 63-37, not enough to override promised presidential veto

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate voted Tuesday after two days of emotional debate to expand federal funding of embryonic stem cell research, sending the measure to President Bush for a promised veto, the first of his presidency.
Bush is a dumb shit. I didn't vote for him. Anyone that did is realizing what an asshat he really is. 70% of Americans (3 out of 4!) are for this research. Bush is going to veto this bill to please his right wing asshat buddies in Texas.
Odds are very good that Bush will lose someone close to him to a disease that Stem Cell Research could help irradicate.
This falls under the third basic law of human stupidity:
A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses.
