Hey folks! It's been a while but here I am. Starting off with some serious stuff that Mountain Mama can't let go of. Look, everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs - and so am I. There has been lots of information out there in the last few years about the pros and cons/do's and dont's of stem cell research. But what it boils down on why it's not widely used now seems to be religion and funding. The technology is falling into place as I write this, but certain do-gooders in society fail to see how much this advanced research can help millions of people now and future generations with spinal injuries and diseases we never even heard of. It's like a miracle! Yes, I said HELP people - that's what I thought religion was all about. It is a very complex issue, but in my pea brain it sounds SELFISH to me. Maybe I'm more spiritual than religious but I would fight for ANY technology that I thought would help the masses. Already much time has been wasted by our elected officials (as screwed-up as you can get) with all of their posturing and bluffing. Who do they think they are - God? How dare they play around with potential cures for severe dieases in the name of religion. How about the hapless taxpayers who are funding endless wars in places that will never, ever have peace ( just check the history books on this), and will never see the results of them helping people like they would want to. What the hell is going on? Where did common sense and good morals go to?
Now with this said, I can't think of anything cute or funny to say - so I'll end it for now.... but I'm here for you - drop in anytime 'ya all. Bye
