  • ESCR : Embryonic stem cells more useless than shuttle? ... and shame on Frist! ...
    Frist's position carries much weight, we're told, not just because he's the highest-ranking Republican in Congress, but also because he's a physician. Actually, that makes him as much a specialist on stem cells as a plumber is on aquatic chemistry. A half hour of reading will give you more knowledge about these cells than the average doctor possesses. In that short time you might learn that ASCs are CURRENTLY used in over 250 human clinical trials and are treating over 80 different diseases.

  • SCOTUS : "We are not defenseless in this war against government power expanding"
  • SCOTUS'ish : Liberal Professor Erwin Chemerinsky vs Clarence Thomas ... :
    It means changing to a smaller government that keeps tax rates low and expenditures under control instead of feeding the liberal beast.
    It means creating a vast ownership society of private institutions: businesses, churches, associations, unions, families, schools, in which ordinary people can practice the skills of self-government instead of depending a megastructure staffed by all-powerful liberal experts.
    It means a Supreme Court that is so dull and boring that the nomination of a new justice fails to divert radical left-wing law professors from the important work of defending terrorist detainees.

  • Internet Explorer 7.0 boycott :
    My advice is simple: Boycott IE. It's a cancer on the Web that must be stopped. IE isn't secure and isn't standards-compliant, which makes it unworkable both for end users and Web content creators. Because of their user bases, however, Web developers are hamstrung into developing for IE at the expense of established standards that work well in all other browsers. You can turn the tide by demanding more from Microsoft and by using a better alternative Web browser. I recommend and use Mozilla Firefox

    --thanks Paul Thurrott!
