Destroying Life with Federal Money

“I believe that the use of federal monies that end up destroying life is not — is not positive, it’s not good,” said President Dubya, stating his opposition to legislation for embryonic stem cell research. Could you imagine such a revolting confection of chutzpah and hypocrisy from anyone but a member of Team Bush?

I suppose the billions being squandered in Iraq are creating life. I suppose the regime’s screw-the-poor social policies at home are nurturing life. I suppose the regime’s tax-funded actions on the environment are good for living things.

I can easily imagine all the sick and crippled people who would benefit from stem cell research. That would be nurturing life. I suppose “Christian” Dubya thinks they should go see faith healers.

Assuming that Dubya is not a vegetarian, does he ever consider all the domestic animals that are killed to feed his meat habit? That too is sacrificing one life to nurture another, and since the American public subsidizes the livestock industry... You get the picture.

Hypocrisy and chutzpah. Spin and distortion and lies. Death and destruction and war. Pollution and contamination and sickness. Welcome to Dubya World.
