`What if one of the embryo`s would grow up to cure cancer?!` What if the same embryo went to cure an already existing genius with ALS so advanced, imo the worst genetic disorder known? Or what if it went to cure someone you loved, rich or poor?
Funny thing is, I just happened to see a MJF movie the other night at like 4:00AM when it came on.
Makes you think, doesn`t it.
Ah, I don`t think I`ve been able to use the same quote twice, delightful!:
"All of those that think America is not the best country in the world, do everyone a favor and move on out..."
I admit I was presumptuous in my assertion that you are a culturally isolated individual, but I remain adamant that you possess many the same superficial qualities as one.
How to respond? I`ll answer with a quote of what you said on page 2:
You may want to adopt only one of those statements as your opinion (might I suggest the one that makes you look best?).
"i simply think that there is no other place in the world where they would be allowed such liberty to express themselves"
And here you are, suggesting others should *not* be able to express themselves:
"Canadians seem to think that they can have an opinion in our politics."
You`d be wrong, though: Germany is very liberal in terms of freedom of expression, there being only a general societal consensus that nudity supersedes violence in terms of what is more appropriately accessible and viewable by the public.
Like they will come back to read that diatribe. Why do you keep coming here hazard?
Take a look at your epidermis. (That`s skin for you slower mouth-breathing morons out there) In each square centimeter there are literally hundreds of thousands of stem-cells. Stem cells are, to put it very simply, cells that can grow into any other kind of cell.
And while I can still see the blank expression in your eyes, telling me that it`s still cloning. Let me lay a simple truth upon your simple mind. Your cells clone themselves, constantly. It`s called mitosis and it`s what keeps you alive. Weither god likes it or not, you`re a totally new human in a span of 5 years. Your liver`s cells clone themselves every 3 months...
Are you going to argue that a cell has rights? That they have a will to power?
These sick accusations of `clone armies` are products of the right-wing`s overactive, megalomaniacal imagination.
I find superstition to be far more frightening and destructive than sci
After all, how many campaign ads *don`t* feature actors?
The point is NOT persuing stem cell research in all forms would be unconsciable.
and if that were truly the case, I wouldn`t support stem cell research either. We are not wantonly killing babies in the name of this field of research, they are embryos that WOULD BE DISCARDED ANYWAY. Why not use them?
Overpopulation after major medical advancements has always been a concern of mine as well jj. As humans, we tend to forget about future generations, only thinking about what is important to us NOW. That said, I still support stem cell research (yes, I`m a hypocrite). The science behind it is just incredible.
i dont think its ok for a baby to lose their life, so som rich guy can save his.
drat em all.
Just had to quote it again, sorry.
I just wanted to quote this to show those who believe conservatives are somewhat intelligent, that they are actually the spawn of stupidity.
thank you RPGillespie, thank you
When it prevents any individual from adopting anything but an ethnocentric, xenophobic, and short-sighted perspective. How often have you travelled out of the country? Over the Atlantic? Pacific? Have you ever visited Canada for any length of time? It would do you a world of good, even if you may not think so.
"All of those that think America is not the best country in the world, do everyone a favor and move on out"
Surely you are not suggesting I relocate simply because I disagree with your opinion? It smacks of facism, which actually is the root evil of super patriotism. See, you say you are supportive of the freedom of expression and yet you turn around and suggest those with whom you disagree with should move out of the country. Are you a hypocrite, too?
"I can make a milkshake in ten seconds flat."
And I`m not kidding.
No baby dies for stem cell research. If you consider a fetus life as well, none of those die either. Stem cells are harvested long before anything that could loosely be considered independent life has started
Why in the name of chicken noodle soup is that man so popular? I lean a bit left, but I still enjoy listening to right-wing pundits for a bit of counterpoint...but Limbaugh isn`t rational! All he does is name-call and make vague generalizations and quote cliche`s to "prove" his points! WHY THE HELL IS HIS AWFUL TALK SHOW #1 IN THE COUNTRY?!
Absolutely! There are so many good things that can be done that technique that there are no way it should be stopped, or even slowed the least.
I was actually stating that I felt America isn`t the best country in the world, though I could have arranged the wording better (not have separated the statement with parenthesis).
"I hate Rush Limbarf and I`m in favor of stem-cell research, but Fox was definately hamming it up for the ad."
If so, then only because Americans can`t be motivated to do anything on the sole premise that someone other than themselves has a debilitating disease. Americans like you, I dare presume.
"Somebody needs to smack him."
That wouldn`t cause him any more pain than what he has to deal with day in and day out.
lower classes will welcome this deleterious existance voting by proxy & emotion, all precedence folds under the weight of their guilt, new laws will allow higher classes to decide the fate of the inferior to include medical experimentation & subjected to removal for the good of the people/elite
don`t know Michael or Rush, does it really matter, i don`t see any facts anywhere on either side
Listen to me people... I am a strong beliver of "prochoice" (flare me if you want, I dont care, I think I prefer legal, secure abortion (its already that stressfull) than a custom made one which can go as far as killing the woman) So its not a question of if abortion should be legal or not...
BUT... if we allow the research on this cell... the bridge to clonage is so close that its scary... If you allow to research on fertilized cell, its only a matter of time that someone claims that research on humans is possible. Its really open the door to tons of nasty human experiment and i dont think we should.
I`m sorry for those diseases... even more than I saw it every single day of my life for 4 years... It was painfull, heart broking and frustrating... to see those people suffer.. not only them but the whole familly arround it...
But... clonage is a absolut no no... too much nasty posibility...
FUNNY THING: Its been proved exctasy actually make the symptoms better, and many research are atm in progress to define what make exctasy so usefull for parkinson. Now if I could find that link i`ll post it...
They landed a division in Normandy back in WWII. Their bodies stop bullets the same as ours.
They are a nation with a population the size of California, of course they won`t have a large military. But screw you for denigrating the honor and sacrifice of one of our closest allys. There are Canadians in graves right now, just so you can sit at home and type your snide little comments. Lets honor those who fight for our freedom and way of life.
You are no better than those "religious" people who goto GI`s funerals and celebrate their deaths because america is accepting of homosexuals. Fark you.
Seriously though, we all know Rush is subhuman, so this doesn`t come as much of a surprise.
To name but 3.
It`s all fine and dandy saying that stem cell research wastes lives, but surely no-one wants those lives to have been taken in vain?
Enough embryos have been killed already, if stem cell research is stopped then those lives will truly have been wasted.
Everyone dies; if I gave my life so that others may live then I`d be proud.
Now, the ad is all over the new and internet, gaining far more exposure that MJF ever intended. After all, the add was produced for a specific race. And now even Europeans and everyone else is aware of what Rightwing nutjobs are like in this country. Talk about back-firing! Limbaugh gave MJF and the stem-cell issue a huge boost! I bet he wasn`t planning on that.
And frankly, when your only arguement against a scientific course of study is "The Bible is true and we need to heed it," that just isn`t convincing to those who actually think and reason.
Do we really want that?
Take a chill pill.
Limbaugh wouldn`t have accused Fox of overacting if he didn`t feel Fox`s message was threatening to the conservative and\or Republican agenda. So what if he wasn`t on medication, Rush? Everyone should see the ugly truth behind Parkinson`s.
Wow, someone needs to wake up.
There are viable alternatives to embyonic stem cell research that doesn`t come with the ethical questions. When in doubt, if you can get the same results without the question of ethics... choose that route.
As for the stem cell research, I`m all for it in whatever form. People will have abortions whether you like it or not. So, might as well make those embryos useful, right? Why put them to waste? Crass, yes, but pragmatic. As for the other forms of it, I`m all for those too.
What`s amusing is if the stem cell research is banned, it`ll just be another example of Catholicism holding back science. They did it all through the middle ages and the renaissance, guess they`re not above doing it now. The truly ironic thing would be if Rush got parkinson`s. Then we`ll see how he feels about stem cell research.
Even when he has parkinsons, he still keeps kicking. And he STILL hasn`t aged much at all by the looks of things.Over-acting? Absolutely no way in HELL is he over-acting.This really hits it right there. It`s a strong clip.
That`s Rush Limbaugh out of a career then.
I don`t get why people are so against embryonic stem cell research, either. The embryos are just going to end up in the trash anyway, so why not put them to good use?
Still, he got the point across
Even if he WAS over-acting, the message is clear. :c
Way to insult a man with a fate worse then death Limbaugh, you fat f*ck
It just goes to show you how terrified the Republicans are of losing the house this November. There is no low too low.
Even if he is, it doesn`t change the fact that Limbaugh`s a jerk. :\
The add makes its point
...although he still hasnt aged.
