Clinton's Self Help Advice for Ordinary Citizens

Are you an "ordinary citizen" of the US who just doesn't have enough money and power? Would you like more money and power without having to work hard to get them?

William Jefferson Clinton gives you easy advice in his Monday night address to the Democrat National Convention:

They [Wascally Wepublicans] believe the role of government is to concentrate wealth and power in the hands of those who embrace their economic, political and social views, leaving ordinary citizens to fend for themselves on important matters like health care and retirement security.

So if you want to be showered with money and power, all you have to do is embrace the economic, political, and social views of the Republican Party.  Sounds like easy work to me.     So what are those views?  Who knew -- they even have an Oath!  Read it and sign on the bottom line and wealth and power will be yours. 

Stem Cell Research

At least George has almost adopted the libertarian position on stem cell research.

He banned Federal funding of embryonic stem cell rearch.

Now if only he'd ban all Federal funding of stem cell research.

That is the libertarian position, isn't it?

In practice, not much stem cell research of any kind is going on with Federal funds.  Isn't that a good thing?
