A Big YES For Common Sense...and Science
Today he reversed the backward Bush policies about Stem Cell Research, and has re-iterated his push to get SCIENCE back taught in schools and on the front burner. The unfortunate problem with the past 8 years has been the fact that ideology has replaced common sense. People who wave the Bible and twist words around to being some kind of "sacred word of God" decided that ideology should be national policy. Ditto war because they read some old words and twisted them into some kind of "prophecy". These are morons who believe the earth is flat, and that the earth is only about 4 to 6000 years old. Sad that people live like that, they must like simple ideas in their minds.. I got accosted in Borders books by some idiot wanting me to "come and read the Bible" with him. Got news for him, I've done that. It's a nice mythology, oral history if you will, but it's not about God(if that's what you believe in). These are backward people, and backward people are what will doom the future, they listen to Rush Limbaugh-who they don't realize is merely an entertainer with no interest, other than funding his own drug habits with his bloviating on radio "Dear! It's Rush Limbaugh on the radio! HE can tell us what to do!". These are people who need to be told what to do. They they'd rather be sheep, than people who blaze their own trails. Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin and Mark Twain(my hero) all had quotes for the dangers of mixing ideology, with politics.
So, bravo for science, and for President Obama. And a good day for Common Sense. We've taken a great step forward for Mankind. God would be proud.
