Uno: la dubbia science policy sulle staminali embrionali - a, b, c, d.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, then-Sen. Barack Obama said: "I believe that the restrictions that President Bush has placed on funding of human embryonic stem cell research have handcuffed our scientists and hindered our ability to compete with other nations." With all due respect, that is nonsense.


President Obama has turned his back on those advances [the development of alternative sources of embryonic-like cells that do not necessitate the destruction of human organisms]. He has needlessly and clumsily forced a choice between the promise of progress and the respect for life, and has gone out of his way to ensure that we fail the moral test put before us. Let us hope this failure proves reversible in time and does not set the tone for science policy in the years to come.

Due: irresponsabilità.

Since the average American never took out a mortgage loan as big as 700 grand — for the very good reason that he could not afford it — why should he be forced as a taxpayer to subsidize someone else who apparently couldn’t afford it either, but who got in over his head anyway?


Tre: deficit.

There just isn’t enough cash, even at the top of the income pyramid, to pay for all this.


Quattro: verdismo.

There may be legitimate arguments for taking dramatic steps to fight climate change. Boosting the economy isn’t one of them.
