Mom Wants A Diabetes Cure

Congress Passes Stem Cell Research Bill

Read it here. And then realize that Bush plans to veto the bill.

"If this bill were to become law, American taxpayers would for the first time in our history be compelled to support the deliberate destruction of human embryos," he said in a statement in Germany, where he was attending a summit of world leaders.


I suppose he'd rather have a 7 year old boy hate him instead:

We were watching the Democratic Presidential debate Sunday night (mainly because the woman taking questions from the audience is our neighbor and our kids play together, so we wanted to witness fame because we're shallow like that).

I was explaining the process of debate and why it's important to hear what each candidate has to say so that we can make an informed decision when it's time to vote (I'm so not serious about politics, but I needed to sound like a responsible parent for chrissakes).

So anyway, Brendon told me to make sure I vote for whoever wants stem cell research.

And then he said in a low and deliberate voice:

"I hate President Bush."

"Why do you hate him?"

He gave me a sideways glance, and in the same tone said, "Because he won't let scientists help people and find a cure for diabetes."

Yeah, President Bush, nice legacy to leave behind.

  • O hates him too, for the same reason.

    I hate him, too, but my reasons would use up the entire internet. And then some.

  • Dubya not popular in my household either. Amazing irony that he applies his own beliefs and morality on the rest of the country whether we like it or not. Sounds a lot like the Taliban.

    Hey, why don't your posts pop up in the "latest diabetes headlines" thing?

  • Brendon,

    I agree with you, I don't care for the politics of the BUSH goverment either.

    But hate is a big word.

    Even as angry as I am that we are in war that we created, I beleive hate is what leads us not to listen.

    and even though we might not agree with certain things about people, nobody is all bad.

    Your friend

  • I hate him too, with a passion. S.5 is only asking for discarded embryos from in vitro fertilization clinics that (1) are NOT capable of producing life (2) are about to be discarded into medical waste. THESE EMBRYOS HAVE ALREADY BEEN CREATED AND ARE GOING TO BE DESTROYED ANYWAY! Instead of allowing these embryos, already slated for destruction, to be used for scientific research Bush and many of our politicians, for strictly political reasons, are saying our kid's lives are not worth TRASH! They are chosing the GARBAGE PAIL over our kid's and scientific research. I am in the process of retyping two lists: (1) ALL the members of the Senate who voted NO for S.5 and (2) ALL the members of the House of Representatives who voted NO on S.5. WE NEED TO REMEMBER THESE POLITICIANS AT ELECTION TIME. THEIR NAMES AND VOTES NEED TO BE VISIBLE ON EVERY DIABETIC BLOG, ON EVERY PARKINSON'S BLOG, A.L.S. ALZHEIMER'S BLOG. WE DESPERATELY NEED TO GET TO THE POLLS TO VOTE OUT, NOT JUST THE PRESIDENT, BUT OUR "REPRESENTATIVES" WHO ARE TELLING THESE KIDS AND A LOT MORE PEOPLE WITH FAR MORE SERIOUS ILLNESSES AND A LOT LESS TIME THAN OUR KIDS HAVE TO "DROP DEAD." When the lists are compiled, I will post here and whereever is deemed feasible. I am working on the full list for the House, have the Senate's.
