Devices could help doctors with stored medical information
The VeriChip, the size of a grain of rice, is inserted under the skin with a needle in a procedure that takes less than 20 minutes to complete.
The Associated Press
Updated: 6:38 p.m. ET Oct. 13, 2004WASHINGTON - Medical milestone or privacy invasion? A tiny computer chip approved Wednesday for implantation in a patient�s arm can speed vital information about a patient�s medical history to doctors and hospitals. But critics warn that it could open new ways to imperil the confidentiality of medical records."
Of course, I would never Bash Bush..BUT>>>>
He's a draft dodger.
He's a coward.
He's a danger to our country.
It's like Alien v. Predator..whoever wins we lose.
Bush is a liar, a foul mouthed coward, an idiot, a parasite...and those are his good qualities.
Just vote for Kerry and let's get on with the business of this country...
But, please spray the White House with deodorant first!
"OK, seriously, stop it...
Posted 9:59 p.m. ET
What is Bush widely grinning about while Kerry is talking? That's completely inappropriate. You shouldn't look like a Cleveland Indians logo when you're in the middle of a presidential debate and people are dying in a war. Ugh, Kerry can't stop doing it either. Speaking of baseball - still 1-0 Yankees, bottom of the 5th. Matsui is up.
Bush just said there should be a temporary worker card that will allow Mexican workers to come here and "mate up" with employers willing to pay them minimum wage. "Mate up"? Well, I guess it was his dad who talked about how much he loved "the little brown ones."
Posted 9:46 p.m. ET
Bush keeps cracking jokes. He's really funny. He just made a crack about how we shouldn't necessarily trust anything the media says, then he started laughing at himself.
Remember when he did that hilarious thing at the radio and television journalists dinner where he pretended to look under the table for WMD?
Some people were pissed off because he was making light of the reason thousands of people have died, but I think that's because they didn't get it. Bush is really more of a "comic's comic." Very sophisticated. Reminds me of Andy Kaufman.
Buggy and horse days?
Posted 9:33 p.m. ET
Bush just said "Buggy and horse days." Isn't it usually, "Horse and buggy"?
I know I'm nitpicking, but it's like saying "jelly and peanut butter" instead of "peanut butter and jelly."
In the meantime, Bush said the reason health insurance costs are on the rise is because health insurance is usually purchased by a third party and so we don't have choices.
I'm no specialist, but isn't he referring to people's employers? And what's wrong with that? I would have a lot of difficulty affording health insurance right now unless my employer paid for it.
Until the government pays for it, as is the case in most civilized countries, I'm pretty psyched that my employer pays for my insurance.
Still 1-0 Yankees.
Enough with the chuckles
Posted 9:29 p.m. ET
Both Bush and Kerry appear to have decided it's okay to kind of laugh and smile during what they know is their "cutaway" shot to show they think the other person is saying something really "outrageous."
That's cocky and arrogant on both of their parts. I think the OC is outrageous, but I don't pretend to be above it by laughing at it. I laugh WITH it .
Posted 9:21 p.m. ET
Bush just tried to say we have a flu vaccine shortage because a lot of our flu vaccine turned out to be contaminated, but then, on the other hand, turns around and says we have a health insurance problem because of too many health lawsuits.
If our vaccine turned out to be contaminated, shouldn't we sue someone? I want a flu shot damnit! Or at least a free box of Coldeeze.
I promise I'm not schilling for the manufacturer, but that stuff definitely helps. So does Echinacea, I find. The kind that comes in a liquid form. Put a few drops in O.J., drink it down, and you're all better.
I love Al Leiter in the booth with Tim McCarver and Joe Buck. Sometimes it's hard for a player to quickly become a good commentator, but he's done it. I've had a huge crush on Tim McCarver my whole life, by the way.
I'm sorry, but Al was just explaining how to throw a curve and that was far more compelling to me than either one of these two.
Does Bush have some creepy spittle in the corner of his mouth? Rove should whisper to him to wipe a bit.
Posted 9:15 p.m. ET
There's already a big problem - they're both wearing red ties. I've got two rich white guys with red ties and gray hair onstage.
Will I have to actually LISTEN now to tell them apart? Bummer. For the record, I just want to say I find Johnny Damon at least as attractive as Derek Jeter.
Just putting it out there. Kerry seems super comfortable right off the bat. He knows the script by now. He'll hunt the terrorists down and kill them, yeah yeah, blablabla.
How sad is it that we live in a world where a potential world leader sounds so blasé and bored when talking about killing people, no matter who they are?
Posted 9:05 p.m. ET
Actually, if they're willing to have a debate at a big party school, why not stage it at another location that's equally wild? Why not do it at a Chippendales? Male strippers have concerns and vote like everyone else. It would be so great to do a debate where Kerry and Bush have to face a crowd full of guys wearing bow ties and no shirts.
Still 1-0 Yankees.
University of zoo?
Posted 9:01 p.m. ET
Arizona State University appears to be a total zoo, with lots of seemingly drink-infused screaming and yelling.
I love that Wolf Blitzer has to pretend he doesn't notice that there's chaos behind him when you know he probably wants to sock these kids.
Good for them. Let kids be kids before they grow up to be world-weary, undecided voters who are so worn down by boring politicians that they're overwhelmed by ambivalence.
Teresa Heinz Kerry is apparently sitting with Michael J. Fox. I so wish that Laura Bush were sitting next to Gary Coleman, just for balance.
Posted 8:45 p.m. ET
OK, Yankees just scored first. It's 1-0 in the bottom of the first. OK, I'll out myself - I'm a Mets fan.
I hate that the Yankees crowd is chanting "Who's your daddy?" It's so arrogant. The sad thing is, I just wish the Mets currently dominated over anyone so I could chant that at a game.
There's a rumor going around on the "internets," as Bush calls it, that he was wired for the first debate. I don't know if that's true or not, but it's a great rumor.
The thing is, if he was, shouldn't he have done a lot better? In any case, if he is going to be wired so he can communicate with someone smarter than he is, Kerry should be wired with someone more charming than he is, like Hugh Grant.
Actually, why can't we just have Bush debate Hugh Grant? That would be awesome. "

Bottom line: Bush scored some points attacking Kerry on taxes. But he misspoke several times -- he misled us about Osama bin Laden and about Kerry's health plan. The post-debate fact checkers will have a field day with it.
Kerry cleaned Bush's clock on the basic kitchen table economic issues: jobs, health care, social security, minimum wage. I give the win to Kerry.
Few journalists have gotten into the Grove and been allowed to tell the tale (one exception is Philip Weiss, whose November 1989 Spy piece provides the most detailed inside account), and members maintain that the goings-on there are not newsworthy events, merely private fun. In fact, official business is conducted there: Policy speeches are regularly made by members and guests, and the club privately boasts that the Manhattan Project was conceived on its grounds.
Given the veil of secrecy that surrounds the Bohemian 'encampment,' a reporter needs to enter the grounds covertly in order to get a full portrait. Mathison entered the grounds three times July 1991, aided by activists from the Bohemian Grove Action Network.
He witnessed a speech -- 'Smart Weapons' -- by former Navy Secretary John Lehman, who stated that the Pentagon estimates that 200,000 Iraqis were killed by the U.S. and its allies during the Gulf War. Other featured speakers included Defense Secretary Richard Cheney on 'Major Defense Problems of the 21st Century', former Health, Education and Welfare Secretary Joseph Califano on 'America's Health Revolution -- Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Pays', and former Attorney General Elliott Richardson on 'Defining the New World Order'.
Mathison's entree into the secret world of the Grove was cut short on July 20, however, when he was recognized"

"In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."
(President Franklin D. Roosevelt)
LONDON (Reuters) - If royal genes have anything to do with electoral success, then Republican U.S. presidential candidate George W. Bush will be the next man in the White House, Britain's blue blood bible said Tuesday. Burke's Peerage, a revered guide to the breeding of the aristocracy, said both Bush and his rival Al Gore are of royal descent, but investigations deep into their heritage show Bush has far more noble and royal connections. Bush is closely related to every European monarch on and off the throne -- including the King of Albania -- and has kinship with every member of Britain's royal family, the House of Windsor. He is a 13th cousin of Britain's Queen Mother, and of her daughter Queen Elizabeth and is a 13th cousin once removed of the heir to the throne, Prince Charles. Bush's family tree can be documented as far back as the early 15th century. He has a direct descent from Henry III and from Henry VIII's sister Mary Tudor, who was also the wife of Louis XI of France. He is also descended from Charles II of England. http://www.davidicke.net/newsroom/america/usa/101900a.html
E.W. Bullinger writes: "As to the significance of thirteen, all are aware that it has come down to us as a number of ill-omen. Many superstitions cluster around it, and various explanations are current concerning them. "Unfortunately, those who go backwards to find a reason seldom go back far enough. The popular explanations do not, so far as we are aware, go further back than the Apostles. But we must go back to the first occurrence of the number thirteen in order to discover the key to its significance. It occurs first in Gen. xiv. 4, where we read 'Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and the thirteenth year they REBELLED." "Hence every occurrence of the number thirteen, and likewise of every multiple of it, stamps that with which it stands in connection with rebellion, apostasy, defection, corruption, disintegration, revolution, or some kindred idea." (Bullinger, E.W. Number in Scripture, Kregel Publications, (c)1967, p. 205).
Exposé of The Bohemian Grove: Texe interviews Alex Jones, patriot investigator and founder of Infowars.com. Alex Jones and his radio and TV producer, Mike Hansen, infiltrated the most recent annual conclave of the infamous Bohemian Grove secret society, held in the “sacred groves” forest outside San Francisco. What they saw with their own eyes boggles the mind. They witnessed some of the most powerful men on earth doing despicable sexual things. They observed nude and semi-nude men worshipping a giant idol of an owl in a deeply occult ritual, and what appeared to be an actual human sacrifice of a burning, screaming white man. This is the first time ever in the 129-year history of this secretive group that an outsider has been able to infiltrate their wicked extravaganza and live to tell about it. Also revealed: startling information about how the Bohemians help to choose the men who will be allowed to run for the high office of President and Vice President of the U.S.A.
President Herbert Hoover once called this club "the greatest men's party on Earth."
BUSH MENTIONED HIS ARMIES OF COMPASSION..HERE'S A FEW SCENES OF THEM AT WORK
'So I don't know where he is. You know, I just don't spend that much time on him, Kelly, to be honest with you. I'm more worried about making sure that our soldiers are well-supplied; that the strategy is clear; that the coalition is strong; that when we find enemy bunched up like we did in Shahikot Mountains, that the military has all the support it needs to go in and do the job, which they did. '"
Bush claims Kerry's plan puts "bureaucrats in control" of medical decisons, "not you, not your doctor." But experts don't agree with that."
Bush just keeps on a LYING....Why would anyone vote for this lying asshole..and a personal coward to boot?
New ad claims Bush inherited an economy "already in recession" and that 41 million seniors "now have access to lower cost prescriptions." Wrong on both counts."
His ad says "the middle class is paying a bigger share of America's tax burden." True."
The government certainly isn't discounting the possibility. It's taking the idea seriously enough to fund a yearlong study on chat room surveillance under an anti-terrorism program.

Today's the Day. A Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute computer science professor hopes to develop mathematical models that can uncover structure within the scattershot traffic of online public forums.
Chat rooms are the highly popular and freewheeling areas on the internet where people with self-created nicknames discuss just about anything: teachers, Kafka, cute boys, politics, love, root canals. They are also places where malicious hackers have been known to trade software tools, stolen passwords and credit card numbers. The Pew Internet & American Life Project estimates 28 million Americans have visited internet chat rooms.
Trying to monitor the sea of traffic on all the chat channels would be like assigning a police officer to listen in on every conversation on the sidewalk -- virtually impossible.
Instead of rummaging through megabytes of messages, RPI professor Bulent Yener will use mathematical models in search of patterns in the chatter. Downloading data from selected chat rooms, Yener will track the times that messages were sent, creating a statistical profile of the traffic.
If, for instance, RatBoi and bowler1 consistently send messages within seconds of each other in a crowded chat room, you could infer that they were speaking to one another amid the "noise" of the chat room.
"For us, the challenge is to be able to determine, without reading the messages, who is talking to whom," Yener said. In search of "hidden communities," Yener also wants to check messages for certain keywords that could reveal something about what's being discussed in groups. "
The noose is tightening on our liberties and rights under Bush.
TEMPE, Ariz. (Reuters) - President Bush and Democratic Sen. John Kerry remain deadlocked in the White House race going into their final debate, according to a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.
Bush and Kerry held steady at 45 percent each in the latest three-day tracking poll, raising the stakes for Wednesday night's pivotal final debate in Tempe, Arizona.
The debate, the last big scheduled event in the campaign, could give the winner a critical boost in momentum for the final three-week push to the Nov. 2 election.
"The third debate is crucial," pollster John Zogby said, pointing out 7 percent of likely voters remain undecided ahead of the encounter.
Zogby said only 11 percent of those undecided voters felt Bush deserved to be re-elected and 40 percent thought it was time for someone new. Nearly half of the undecideds were uncertain whether Bush should get another term.
Whether Kerry can persuade those undecided voters he is up to the job."
It's simple if you are undecided. You want a combination of Nazi Germany and Gattaca coming to a town near you?
Vote Bush. Tired of civil rights and liberties? Vote Bush.
Want continual war for the next four years? Vote Bush.
Want our kids dying in a foreign land? Vote Bush.
Nationalizing standards for drivers’ licenses and birth certificates, and linking them together via a national database, creates a national ID system pure and simple. Proponents of the national ID understand that the public remains wary of the scheme, so they attempt to claim they’re merely creating new standards for existing state IDs. Nonsense! This legislation imposes federal standards in a federal bill, and it creates a federal ID regardless of whether the ID itself is still stamped with the name of your state. It’s just a matter of time until those who refuse to carry the new licenses will be denied the ability to drive or board an airplane. Domestic travel restrictions are the hallmark of authoritarian states, not free republics. Nothing in our Constitution can reasonably be construed to allow government officials to demand identification from individuals who are not suspected of any crime. "
It's important to understand how these various small measures that we talk about on this page are tightening the noose on us all.

Reeve spoke with CNN Senior White House Correspondent John King on CNN's Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer.
KING: You just heard Congressman J.C. Watts, a firm opponent of embryonic stem-cell research. He's one of the many voices President Bush is hearing from as he nears what the president himself has called a very agonizing decision, the toughest decision, he says, of his young presidency.
Christopher Reeve urges embryonic stem-cell research
Nearly half House members urge stem cell funding
Click here to learn how embryonic stem cells are harvested
In-Depth: The stem cell debate
Before I talk to you about it, I want you to listen first to some more advice the president received six days ago in Rome from Pope John Paul II. The president seated just a few steps away from the pontiff when he spoke out against such research. Let's listen.
(Video clip plays)
POPE JOHN PAUL II: A free and virtuous society, which America aspires to be, must reject practices that devalue and violate human life at the very stage of conception until they are dead.
(End of video clip)
KING: The pope obviously, sir, a quite powerful voice in this debate. How would you counter that argument?
REEVE: Well, what the pope actually said was that he was against the creation of embryos that would be destroyed for research, and then the Vatican quickly issued a disclaimer the next day saying that all forms of embryonic research are against Catholic principles.
But what I would say is that there is a big discrepancy between the point of view of the Catholic hierarchy and the rank-and-file members of the Catholic Church around the world.
The only religion that I can think of where many people believe in the higher principles of faith, the forgiveness of sins and other higher, lofty principles, but day-to-day, for example, they don't agree with the idea that priests should not be allowed to marry; they want to plan their own families.
So, the latest polls done by the Harris poll and done by ABC show, in this country, 72 percent of white Catholics are pro-embryonic stem cell research, and when you ask all Catholics, 53 percent support it. So the president really does have a very good safety net.
KING: Are you yourself or any like-minded individuals in direct contact still with any leading members of the Bush administration? Or are you focusing your efforts instead on the Congress, hoping to reverse the president if he comes out against this embryonic stem-cell research? Where is the political campaign right now?
REEVE: It's working on both fronts, because any way you look at it, it's sort of like prohibition, people will drink anyway. There will be speakeasies or whatever.
A really tragic thing that might happen in order to save the Catholic vote, if the president comes down against federal funding for the embryonic stem cell research, what will happen is there will be a black market created in the face of that. And women literally will be paid to donate eggs that will later be destroyed. And that is something we really would not want to see, and that's why we need the federal oversight.
So, what we're doing is -- groups are talking to the president. He's being very receptive, but we're also gathering strength in the House and Senate. And right now there are 60 senators in support, including a lot of people who consider themselves anti-abortion. So, the point is, you can be pro-life and pro-human embryonic stem cell research at the same time.
KING: One of the ways to get the politics out of this, many would say, is put aside, at least for now, the issue of embryonic stem-cell research because of the great debate that we've been discussing, and focus just for now on adult stem-cell research, research using stem cells from adults. Why not?
REEVE: Well, that would be a big mistake because you could spend the next five years doing research on the adult stem cells and find that they are not capable of doing what we know that embryonic cells can do now. And five years of unnecessary research to try to create something that we already have would cause -- well, a lot of people are going to die while we wait.
KING: One of the debates within this debate over embryonic stem-cell research is whether, if you do go ahead with this research, to use only existing embryonic stem cells that have been donated to fertility clinics and the like, or whether to create embryos for the purpose of embryonic stem-cell research.
Where do you stand on that issue? Would you support creating embryos solely for the purpose of medical stem-cell research?
REEVE: Absolutely not. That's a very black market industry that we're trying to avoid, but it will spring up if the federal funding is not allowed.
And one thing it's important to remember is that every state in the union must license fertility clinics. And in these fertility clinics, every day of the week, fertilized embryos that will not be implanted in the womb are headed for the garbage. Now, if you believe that life begins the moment that an egg is fertilized, then it would seem to me that there would be an outrage that these unwanted fertilized embryos are being thrown in the garbage.
And yet I do not see, or I'm not aware, that there's ever been legislation introduced to shut down fertility clinics. And that is a contradiction which really puzzles me, because you know, you're really saying that the state is sanctioning murder if that's what you think, that life begins at the moment of fertilization.
We don't see that happening. And what we want to do, scientists want to do is rescue cells that are headed for the garbage and use them to treat 100 million Americans who are suffering right now.
KING: You mention 100 million Americans. This is a debate in which just in this program we've heard the voice of the pope, voice of many of the politicians in Congress.
It's also a debate, though, with many personal stories, including yours, and from the world of Hollywood and celebrities. Michael J. Fox has testified before Congress saying he believes this research could help cure a disease he has, Parkinson's. Mary Tyler Moore has gone before the Congress and said perhaps in stem-cell research, including embryonic stem cell-research, is the cure for diabetes.
Tell us in your case, sir, how do you believe that this research could specifically perhaps help you?
REEVE: Well, in my case, I suffer from something called demyelination. And that means that, in one very small segment of my spinal cord, about the width of your pinky, the coating, myelin, which is like the rubber coating around a wire, has come off. And that keeps signals from the brain from getting down into the body.
So the human embryonic stem cells could be cultured and then sent right to the site, and they would know that their job is to remyelinate. And then the signals from the brain would go down properly, and I would get recovery of function.
But let me say that I think this research is important not just for people with spinal-cord injuries, but let's just take the case of people that have ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease. There's no cure for it whatsoever. And it is always fatal within two to six years. The body just degeneratively falls apart.
Now, what a couple of researchers did recently is proof of principle, which is very, very important. It was Dr. Gerhard and Dr. Kerr at Johns Hopkins, and they were able to inject mice or rats with a virus which simulates ALS. They then injected human embryonic stem-cells. Then, over a period of time, the progression of deterioration was stopped, and all the rats showed recovery of function.
Now, that is proof, because some people say, well, we don't know what embryonic stem cells can do; it's never been proven. Well, that's a huge first step. And of course we won't know what they can do until we go and do the work. But the work must not be stopped, absolutely. "
Amen. His words still give us all pause for contemplation and direction.
Oct. 13, 2004 12:00 AM
Christopher Reeve was an inspiration in his drive for a cure for spinal-cord injuries and stem-cell research. His death makes me sad.
I favor stem-cell research. When I was a young Catholic, my parents and people in the church taught me that a conception couldn't be considered a human being until it is growing in the womb. I don't know how or why that was changed.
There are more than 400,000 frozen embryos in this world that will eventually be destroyed anyway. I wish they could be put to good use to help find cures for people with diseases.
Let's get going on stem-cell research to help people in need. "
I agree wholeheartedly. Very good article.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist attacked Sen. John Edwards on Tuesday over a comment the Democratic vice presidential candidate made regarding actor Christopher Reeve.
Edwards said Reeve, who died Sunday, "was a powerful voice for the need to do stem cell research and change the lives of people like him.
"If we do the work that we can do in this country, the work that we will do when John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve will get up out of that wheelchair and walk again," Edwards said.
Frist, a Republican from Tennessee, called Edwards' remark "crass" and "shameful," and said it gave false hope that new treatments were imminent."
Frist is a perfect example of the orthodoxy of medicine that tells people...
don't have hope...you are just meat and blood...render yourself unto the Gods in White Coats. If I were a Republican, comments like this from Frist would make me immediately switch parties.

President Bush and Democratic Sen. John Kerry meet on Wednesday in a final debate that could give one of the White House rivals a critical boost heading into the last three weeks of the race.
The stakes are high for both candidates, with polls showing the president and the Massachusetts senator in a dead heat heading into the showdown on domestic issues like taxes, jobs and health care.
The televised encounter at Arizona State University is the last set campaign event before the three-week dash to the Nov. 2 election, and gives Bush and Kerry a final chance to make their case before an audience of millions of likely voters.
Bush arrived in Arizona on Tuesday night for a campaign event with supporters and a dinner with Sen. John McCain, his bitter foe in the 2000 Republican presidential primaries but now an ally on the campaign trail.
"What I'm going to tell the people tomorrow night is we're not going to go back to the days of tax and spend," Bush told supporters in Arizona, criticizing Kerry as a big-spending liberal whose health care plan would amount to a government takeover.
Kerry stayed in New Mexico to watch the Boston Red Sox lose to the New York Yankees in the first game of the American League baseball playoffs. He plans to travel to Arizona on Wednesday.
Kerry aides said he would grill Bush on the job losses, rising gas prices, increasing budget deficits and growing rolls of the uninsured that have developed during the Bush administration's first term.
"His record is so weak, he really has trouble articulating a defense for the last four years," Kerry adviser Joe Lockhart said of Bush. "

From what they are saying and the way they are saying it, President Bush, his strategists and spinners are clearly thinking about you, 24/7, during this campaign season.
They are thinking you are idiots. Or, at best, just pretty stupid. They are thinking you want to be conned or deceived. Or shucked and jived. Or even lied to. They think you want to hear smooth talk instead of straight talk. Anything except the tough truths.
GLOBAL TOUGH TRUTHS: Team Bush thinks you'll swallow anything but the truth about our international policy crises-at-hand. Such as the disastrous failures of their Iraq policy. And a direct consequence of it, the Code Orange high alert we've live under this year because Bush diverted our troops and resources from the effort to crush al Qaeda, which gave our No. 1 enemy time to regroup and threaten us anew. Perhaps with a nuclear device or dirty bomb.
Team Bush hopes you will pay no attention to these tough truths about Bush's Iraq policies, thinking it is Democratic negative campaign spin:
(1) "It's beyond pitiful, it's beyond embarrassing. It is now in the zone of dangerous."
(2) "The administration has been stubborn about troops (by insisting more troops aren't needed in Iraq or the larger war on terror). We do not need to paint a rosy scenario for the American people. We need to let the American people know this is just like World War II; we're in it for the duration."
(3) " ... exasperating for anybody who looks at this from any vantage point."
(4) "We made serious mistakes right after the initial successes by not having enough troops there on the ground, by allowing the looting, by not securing the borders."
But wait _ all four of those tough truths were said in the past month by this nation's most honest straight-talking Republican conservatives: (1) Sen. Chuck Hagel, Neb.; (2) Sen. Lindsey Graham, S.C.; (3) Sen. Dick Lugar, Ind.; (4) Sen. John McCain, Ariz..
DOMESTIC TOUGH TRUTHS: Team Bush thinks you'll swallow anything but the truth about our domestic policy crises-in-waiting. Such as an overall jobs deficit that has made this president the only chief executive who failed to increase jobs in his first term since Herbert Hoover. And an overall budget deficit that has sent the national debt plunging again _ wiping out the real surplus that was bequeathed to us by President Clinton.
They think you are too dumb to know that it was the no-longer-big-spending Democrats who wiped out the huge deficits of the Reagan-Bush voodoo economics, bequeathing a real budget surplus to a Republican president _ who voodid it to us again, by rubber-stamping every thing sent him by the now-big-spending Republicans who controlled the Senate and House.
They pretend not to hear (and think you're too dumb to understand) the whispered wailings of genuine think tank conservatives who are disillusioned to discover that their erstwhile hero was not a steely fiscal conservative, after all, but a big-tax-cut/big-spending Republican. A round-heeled cowboy who just can't say no.
Team Bush thinks you are so worried about the here-and-now that you don't know or don't care that you are only making your children and grandchildren pay your debts and your overspending. They also think you aren't worried about the fact that your children and grandchildren will live in an increasingly polluted environment due to newly relaxed restrictions put forth by Bush's EPA, an agency whose acronym now seems to stand for Environmental Prevarication Agency.
Team Bush hopes you won't notice what is probably the most cynical domestic policy ever propounded by a chief executive: Bush's stem cell sellout. To pander to his fundamentalist conservative base, he crafted a bizarre compromise that makes no intellectual, ideological or theological sense.
First, it creates what can only be called grandfathered embryos: The few (inadequate, scientists say) embryonic stem cell lines that existed prior to his policy announcement can be used for research; none can be created after for much-needed research. His policy means that fertility clinics will destroy unused embryos by tossing them into the garbage _ but Bush will not permit those garbage-destined embryos to be used for life-saving research.
Mainly, Team Bush hopes you've lost interest in fixing Social Security or healthcare. Bush officials hope you're conditioned to seeing politicians promise in campaigns to fix your imperiled Social Security system and broken health care system _ but then never lift a finger to fix these crises. But if you are alert enough, you may indeed see them lift a finger _ but only to salute your gullibility after they have achieved their real goal: four more years on your payroll. "
