Lsherm: cman: Before all the Christian anti-science brigade gets here, let me point out the most important part of the article: HER OWN STEM CELLS

Before the liberals get here:  her own.

Think on it a bit.


I'm sorry to derail the thread, but I'm just too confused to not ask and feel like an idiot...

Does somebody want to explain to me what is so @#$%ed up about the United States that LIBERALsimply means "I believe in taking the same freedoms away from people, but for different reasons?"

When did it become a swear-word in the states?

As a Canadian, I just know that when liberals are in charge, the country progresses and makes great strides, and when the conservatives are let in charge, it's essentially because rich old white people are pissed off, and the country goes broke and tries to destroy everything we've attempted to build up in this country. I just figured it was the same down there...what's up with nobody in America actually wanting to make PROGRESS? It's always about screwing the other side out of what they value most.

StrangeQ: xxmedium: While I'm glad to hear about this little girl's recovery through some amazing technology, I cannot imagine the medical bills that await this family after having a two year old child who has spent her entire life in intensive care.

It's sad that thought popped into my head almost immediately.

Unfortunately it's something that family will probably have to live with the rest of their lives.  Even if their insurance covered it, the premiums for that kind of coverage are on the order of a mortgage payment, or more.


It is true that she may not be able to get covered later in life by an individual plan or the family might not either. It is part of the reason why we need some regulation in this industry. The premiums maybe sky high too (again, on an individual plan). Group plans work way different.

/I just went health insurance shopping.
//I would rather pay higher taxes and have free healthcare. Least I feel like my money is going towards something useful instead of bombing brown people.

FTFA:  Her parents, Darryl and Young-mi Warren were told Hannah would not live past age six. "Hannah didn't have a chance. There was no hope. We were waiting for her to die essentially," said Darryl Warren.

Of course the zealots will say "So what? That how God wanted it" before visiting a chiropodist to have their divinely ordained ingrown toenails trimmed.

You think that because you're not rich, old, and white.



He's Canadian. He's probably white.

I don't get the underlying implications of that sentence, I don't know if they're positive or negative, but I will cop to saying yes to all three...but whether or not I was rich or poor, I wasn't getting same-sex marriage or health care from the conservatives....both of which are highly relevant to my life. I will admit that I really can't see it from the point of view of a homeowner with more than $100 000 in income...but how bad could their lives possibly be that liberal policy will completely destroy it?

log_jammin:
now you just look like one.

I'd rather ask a stupid question than pretend I know everything. So do you care to enlighten me? ...or do you not have an answer?

Basically, Woodrow Wilson and FDR each had a couple of classical-liberal stances mixed with a lot of socialist and some nationalist policies.  They both labeled themselves "liberal", despite not having much at all in common with classical liberals, and so in the United States, the term came to be attached to a political package that's generally somewhat looser on personal habits than conservatives but that includes heavy government management of the economy and centralized social engineering.
