Dearest PL/EmoProgs everywhere…..
– Lifting the ban on stem cell research

There’s more, but there are only so many hours in a day, and I’ve got other things to DO.
And all in the face of RECORD OBSTRUCTION & FILIBUSTERING because ****WE FAILED**** TO SEND A PROGRESSIVE ARMY to DC to STAND BY THE POTUS, and HAVE HIS BACK.
Of course, everything above AND MORE will be overturned the second that President Perry or Bachmann gets into office, INCLUDING AT LEAST THREE MORE SCOTUS APPOINTMENTS – but by all means, stay home and whine 24/7 about how Obama isn’t President Superfly, because GETTING MAD worked for GHANDI, MLK, and NELSON MANDELA. NONE of whom were President of the United States, weren’t faced with a dishonest media, a certifiably insane opposition who complain when their children are taught science instead of creationism, and e-voting fraud on an epic scale.
Now if we could only be like Canada and outlaw newscasters lying.
