Yeah, all the old stuff being retried for the billionth time should be stopped...Let's look at some new stuff. Stem cell research is not new. Re-newable energy is not a new concept. Neither has provided much, or is viable. Come on libs...Where are all those NEW PROGRESSIVE ideas from the know-it-all party?


They are so new that people that are not in the know-it-all party are unable to understand them. Now get on your horse and get back to work in your shed making tallow for candles.

Provide a link, please ... according to the NIH, stem cells have not been used to cure these diseases as of yet. They have been used to treat some diseases.

why do you keep posting this and not mentioning that it was all tied to those countries teaching abstinence only education, which almost certainly increased the rate of HIV infection?

not yet and that's probably not where their primary application will lie. (it doesn't make sense, for example, to treat rapidly reproducing cells with...more cells?) however, they're already using them to grow peoples' jaws back and human cells were used in rats to repair spinal chord damage in rats so it's difficult to say this is anything but the most promising and exciting breakthrough in medicine since, oh, I don't know, daily baths.

Stem Cell research may be a big dead end...Chasing energy alternatives may be as well, but I suppose as long as the dems get to waste a bunch of money trying, it's OK!


That's the spirit!
