Do The Freakin Math

Liberals and conservatives alike frequently rely on limited evidence, personal experience, religious beliefs or gut emotions to determine solutions for complex problems. From immigration to global warming - taxes to terrorism - or health care to free trade - analytical study is rare. Science based policy making isn’t the way of Washington. And the consequences are catastrophic. Change is urgently needed. Just do the freakin’ math.

Veto the Hypocritical President

Hypocrisy is standard operating procedure for the Bush Administration so the first time use of his veto to stop federal funding of stem-cell research should not come as a shock.

When Bush draws a standing ovation from the East Room of the White House by saying “if this bill would have become law, American taxpayers would, for the first time in our history, be compelled to fund the deliberate destruction of human embryos, and I’m not going to allow it” the first thing that comes to many minds is his gross inconsistency of not lifting a finger to stop the ‘deliberate destruction of human embryos” with private funding.

But if Bush were really serious and consistent about protecting the ‘unborn’ there is the more obvious and lethal means of ‘deliberate’ human embryo destruction that is directly related to war, hunger, pollution, disease and our unquestioned funding for the state of Israel.
The Bush Administration can’t plead ignorance about the Israeli government’s use of funds for aborting Israeli fetuses. For decades American taxpayers have been compelled to fund the ‘deliberate destruction of human embryos’ in Israel.

Then there is the direct and indirect ravages of war (see US invasion and unwanted occupation of Iraq) that undoubtedly destroys human embryos. Many, while still in their mother’s wombs. Knowing that collateral damage is an unavoidable outcome of war, a war of choice is one that chooses to use American taxpayers to fund the known destruction of human embryos, not to mention the destruction of other innocent lives.

And last but not least in numbers are the human embryos destroyed by the Bush Administrations deliberate cuts to environmental programs and nutrition programs that obviously and without question protect and nourish the growth of human embryos. Here the Bush Administration has deliberately used American taxpayers to allow the destruction of human embryos on a local and global scale.

It’s unfortunate the American people can’t veto the President. It would be the first time in American history that American taxpayers have been compelled to deliberately oust a hypocritical President.
