And the Hero will Drown
By Story of the Year
This post is to explain my stance on both parties, and its political implications. Both parties have good points in any respect, but truthfully I don't see either fit to run this country. Both candidates are quite inconclusive, sometimes they don't make sense, and especially in the recent debates they are almost quirky with eachother.
During the second presidential debate, the President made a poignant case for not allowing Federal funding for new lines of stem cells:
Embryonic stem-cell research requires the destruction of life to create a stem cell. I'm the first president ever to allow funding -- federal funding -- for embryonic stem-cell research. I did to because I too hope that we'll discover cures from the stem cells and from the research derived.Bush Makes good points but I am in disagreement. Morality in this issue can be greatly debated, but I believe that the death of one to save many is more logical. The question is does morality affect governmental decisions? Yes and no. After all the people have their opinions, and attempt to state them duly to the government, even if the U.S. doesnt listen. Opinion is the driving force of politics, and morality is an issue that is voiced, to create laws, or to break them.
As with George Bush as a whole, I do not like his demeanor, nor his way of running this country. A War for nothing? Doesnt sound like a smart decision in the least. His war was a political excuse, and as said its not the Soldiers who fight wars anymore, but the figures who control them. War now is a political game, and Bush is a prime example of creating world problems at no benefit to the country. Who is the beneficiary for staying over in Iraq? Is is best for U.S. Interests?
Going back to stem cells, the death of others is not morally just, as Bush states, but is saving others lives? Yes. The only problem is a definitive answer. Will stem cell research help at all within even the next year, let alone 10 or 20 years? This question is something of interest to me, someone should comment on how they think stem cell research will, or won't help, and if its morally just to destroy life for a greater cause.

Just some updates for today, I added some music and links to the site. Jimmy Eat World's new CD comes out the 19th, can't wait. As for this site I've decided to have it as a normal blog, as well as something based on the privatized space industry. I'd rather have interesting things to say than anything else.
Here is a pic of my freind Mike, yes that's a strip club in the backround, quite amusing to say the least
I'll update more tommorow.
Privatized Space is becoming ever more present in today's society. Many more are looking towards the stars in an effort to start a space revolution. The Xprize is consisted of teams that wish to venture forth into the new world, using their money, or sponsorships, to reach for the sky. The Xprize was won on October 4th by the Scaled Composites team, a team long looked upon to do it first, to be first into space, without governmental supervision. And now we wait, and see what other teams have to contribute, and see how to make future, reality.
