A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Friday, December 16, 2005 Democrats hate sick people: I know that's an inflammatory headline, but yesterday Senate Democrats decided to hold hostage a bill that passed the House by a vote of 431-1. The bill would create a federal program to store umbilical cords -- which are typically thrown away -- that can be used to successfully treat all sorts of diseases.
Why would Democrats do this? Because they want to pair the uncontroversial umbilical cord measure with a very controversial embryonic stem cell research measure.
So, people will die because of Democrats' petty politics.
