The Real Sporer: What the Democrats call progress...........

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer
............ reality defines as a special interest extravaganza. The Democrat Majority Leader in the Iowa House recently gave his description of the new Democrat majority's accomplishments in their first shot at legislative power. ... Let's take a look at who the Democrats REALLY benefited with this orgy of taxing and spending. ... PRESCHOOLS ... who does it really benefit? A small number of children who don't already have access to preschools, in and of itself of questionable value, can now access government run preschools. Who works in government run preschools? AFSCME members, of course. Even more government jobs in a state that already has six percent of the nation's public employees for one percent of the population. ... STEM CELLS. It's hard to tell who this Frankensteinien legislation benefits other than the pro-abortion lobby. Virtually no scientific data supports the proposition that embryonic stem cells offer more promising human benefit than other form of stem cell research. Certainly no private laboratories are willing to invest their own money in it but what the hell, why not hit and hope from the rough with someone else's money, eh?
