Quote of the Day
Yesterday, actually, I saw this on FARK.
For those bitching about the government funding research, you do understand the irony of posting such a complaint on the internet, right?
Unfortuantely, I'm sure they don't. Or don't care. For anyone apologizing for Bush anymore, it's not about making sense, it's just about defending his decisions at all cost. When you poke enough holes in one argument, they just switch to a different one (see: Iraq War for good examples). Which is why they never even seemed to bother with Bush's excuse for using the veto to "protect human life." Even his followers knew that one was bullshit, so they went straight for the "government shouldn't be funding research, anyway" line. Unfortunately for them, if that's their argument, that ship has sailed. The government does (and should) fund research. There are a lot of good reasons for it, most of them already detailed much better than I could do, so I won't get into it here, but to argue that this veto is good because the government shouldn't be funding research anyway kind of misses a lot of points.
