    Of course not.
    No vote, of course.
    But I do think that English should be taught, and to a high level.
    Had I done the editing, "stim" would have been caught. And I see so much of this.
    Solace, I suspect you are one of the anti-progressive creations, not a true/real man..
    More of a "polling device".
    Much like a Scarecrow or a Navy Pride.

    You guys are just rehashing the stem cell debate from 2001. The science of stem cells has progressed at a breathtaking rate since then. It is no longer necessary to destroy embryos, making the whole bioethical debate a moot point.

    I can't. This is important.

    Silly response, I know.
    But, aging should not be a "disease", and if we could live longer and healthier, its would be great.

    Why don't you want the government to spend money in such an empirically-proven useful field?

    Oh...I dont know...off the top of my head...

    1-Its outside of the scope of the federal government and

    2-14 trillion dollar debt. Bankrupt federal government. Current spending will put us incapable of paying even the interest on our debt in just a few years.

    Does **** like that even matter to you?

    There are private universities, businesses, and other entities that are and should be doing the research for this.

    well this came up in another post and I see the point about a person not wanting their dollars to go to something BUT that list is long and I laugh when people "cherry pick" from it

    not saying YOU are doing that just stating that I have encountered people that use tax dollars as an argument but then think its ok for execution or birth control or sex education or medical treatment or public housing etc, im never down with hypocrisy

    Oh...I think my position on federal spending is pretty much universal.

    and thats fine by me, thats why I wanted to make sure I wasnt referring to you, I just encounter many that dont share your same view or dont even know what else tax dollars go to, its their ignorance and mix of superiority that makes me giggle at their blind hypocrisy.

    Everybody had a right to feel how they wish just dont be upset when someone else disagrees or points out the lack of logic of it. I personally know a guy who "doesn't want his tax money going to the sin of murdering babies and that the "anti-life" people should be ashamed of themselves for supporting such sin" but hes fine with the death penalty, give me a break

    I have NO PROBLEM with his personal choice to think that way but when you preach them to others you are going to get laughed at
