Local Vocal: Stop the Bush Bashing
I am disgusted about these people that go around bashing Bush on a daily basis.
They should be awarded a medal of stupidity. Whatever happened to respect for the president in office?
Oh yes, I forgot the ones that are protesting are against anything moral in this country. Stem cell research? It has already been proven that adult stem cells are more viable then fetus stem cells. The overplay of this issue shows the ignorance of those protesting. The war in Iraq ‘— I didn’t see a draft, did you? These honorable men and women that CHOOSE to serve this country are over there fighting for the right for us back at home to bicker over such babble (one of our many luxuries that we take for granted everyday by the way). In addition, the liberation of Iraq was a good thing. What do these people want? Do they want to hand over Iraq to al Qaeda? That would be utterly beyond stupid. That means men have died in vain.
And, of course evolution taught in schools. Remember that Darwin’s theory is a THEORY. Most people do believe in intelligent design. To NOT teach intelligent design as a possibility is dishonest since evolution has not and cannot be proven to be true. These people are a bunch of bleeding heart liberals that have nothing better to do than to hate someone they will never meet, let alone ever really know. Perhaps they should examine their hatred for Bush than focusing on their own selfish agendas. Gee, why don’t they blame him for the hurricanes too. That is what liberals do. They play the blame game. It is a bunch of complaining, and empty rhetoric and they offer no real tangible solutions.
Get over it, people, he won, and he is doing a darn fine job. 60 million people voted for him, so deal with it, and grow up.
editor responds: In a democracy such as ours it is every citizen’s right, even their responsibility, to look upon those that govern us with a critical eye. They work for us, not the other way around. And as far as ‘“respect for the president in office’” goes, respect does not come with the job title. It is something that must be earned by integrity and dedication to serving the people he represents.
You are patently wrong on some other points as well.
On stem cell research, we do not know where you got your facts, but this is a quote from the National Institute of Health: ‘“Embryonic stem cells can become all cell types of the body because they are pluripotent. Adult stem cells are generally limited to differentiating into different cell types of their tissue of origin.’”
On the ‘volunteer’ troops in Iraq: Yes, members of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines did choose to serve, though arguably most of them were just looking for a way to pay for college or to get decent job training. The members of the National Guard certainly did not sign up for overseas duty ‘— they enlisted to provide DOMESTIC support for things like terrorist attacks and, yes, hurricanes.
And as far as the theory of evolution goes, show me one REAL scientist who does not espouse Darwin’s theorem and the rest of them will likely revoke his pocket protector. And if it is ‘“dishonest’” not to teach intelligent design, wouldn’t it also be dishonest to leave out all other creation theories? The Aztecs believed the world was created by the goddess Coatlique who was impregnated by an obsidian knife and gave birth to the moon and stars. The Australian Aborigines believe man was created by eternal ancestors called Ungambikula, who carved them out of the earth. Others believe man and woman were created when aliens came down to earth and had sex with monkeys. Are all of these ‘theories’ valid or is it only your own Judaeo-Christian cosmology that should be force-fed to our children?
Lady, you are an ass. And if you send us your address we’ll put one of those ‘“medal[s] of stupidity’” in the mail for you. And also a YES! Weekly T-shirt.
