Senate leader Frist backs stem cell research

Holy Shit, how fucking loony tunes do your positions have to be if even Bill Frist isn't nutty enough to support them? Maybe he wasn't asleep during all of medical school, after all, just the part where they told you to actually see patients in person before diagnosing them. It will be interesting to watch the religous extremists turn on him like they did on Jeb Bush.

Can someone explain to me two things?

1) Why should the government be spending tax dollars for this?

2) Why the government stop civilians from doing this research?

I have third question but I wanted to keep it separate.

Should taxpayers fund NASA?

John Howard said...

1) Because it's important
2) This question doesn't make any sense.

3) yes

Too bad I thought you might be interested in an adult discussion of these issues.

As for question 2, I will simplify my question. I am merely asking if Bush or any one else made it illegal for civilians to conduct this research and if so by what authority.

John Howard said...

Sure, I'm up for an intelligent adult discussion. Tell me why you think the government shouldn't fund it.

And no, it's not illegal for civilians to do this research as far as I know. That doesn't mean it wouldn't be better if the government did it as well.
