Get a load of this headline from the AP. U.S. OKs Evidence Gained Through Torture. Sleep deprivation, withholding food, psychological mindgames. How dare they torture these poor terrorists at Gitmo.

There's a word for this. Funny.

Money can't buy me love. The Dems did beat the GOP in one aspect during this election sweep. They out raised them by millions of dollars. The DNC raised $402 million from January 2003 through Nov. 22 while the GOP raised a measly $385 million. And we all know it's money that wins elections. Ask John Kerry.

I'll just quote the whole story.
"NEW YORK (Reuters) - A school bus driver who chatted about stem cell research with her pupils was fired for inappropriate behavior, a local newspaper said on Thursday.

Stem cell research was a divisive issue in the November U.S. presidential election. Supporters say it may eventually help people with conditions such as Alzheimer's and cancer but opponents argue it would be unethical when it involves cloning human embryos or harvesting cells from embryos.

The Buffalo News said Julianne Thompson, 42, was fired from her job in Grand Island, New York after parents complained about her discussing the issue with pupils on Nov. 1, the day before the presidential election.

Thompson told the newspaper she had read an interview where movie director Mel Gibson said more than 20 years of embryonic stem cell research had not cured any diseases but more than 300,000 cures had been found with adult stem cells. She said she then shared the stated facts with the pupils, without offering her opinions.
'In the midst of all the misplaced outrage, is the story of the sad and disturbing success of a fraudulent social 'conscience' that devalues life in favor of demonstrably failed science, wasting billions of dollars in the process,' she was quoted as saying.

Education authorities in the town were not immediately available for comment but the paper quoted schools Superintendent Thomas Ramming as saying employees were not allowed to discuss political issues with students.

'You can say anything you want as a private citizen when you are off duty,' Ramming said."
How much you wanna bet that if she had said something to the effect of "These hate mongering Right-Wing nuts only care what they want" she never would have been fired.
