Stem cell foe named
chair of science panel

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by Aaron Gould Sheinin

Original Article

Posted By:Hermoine, 1/23/2013 9:01:30 AM

The new head of the state House Committee on Science and Technology is a social conservative who has used a moral compass to question scientific research, but who says he knows the importance biotechnology has on the state’s economy. Rep. Ed Setzler, R-Acworth, has previously led efforts to ban research on embryonic stem cells and sponsored a bill making it illegal to implant people with microchips against their will. Setzler, beginning his fifth term in the House, is also a frequent sponsor of bills to restrict abortions. The 42-year-old is an engineer and retired Army Ranger.

Comments:
Just another example of journalistic malpractice, or better yet, warfare by journalism. Oh, the horror, this guy is against EMBRYONIC stem cell research and happens to believe that it might just be a violation of your privacy to have micro-chip implanted in you against your will. Seriously, what an absolute extremist. How will the country survive with these types of people serving in leadership!?

There´s been a media black-out of advances made in non-embryonic stem cell research. They conflate the two when they are actually worlds apart. Perhaps this legislator can actually bring this info to light.

Is this a problem? Is he a Cretan? Is he a foe of adult stem cells (which work) or embryonic stem cells (which require destruction of life and do not work).
Is there a problem with morals watching over "science?"

With apologies to residents of Crete.

Mr. Sheinin of the Atlanta Journal and Constipation, can you name one single technical advance or cure that has been brought about by embreyonic stem cell research, just one, I´m waiting......... I didn´t think so. Now why don´t you do what reporters are supposed to do, a little research on the subject and then you can list all the advances and cures brought about by Adult Stem cell research. Aaron, you should be ashamed to call yourself a reporter.

Number 8 misses the point. Democrats are not interested in truth, but only in manipulating public opinion. And 50% of the US is uneducated[ or has a warped public school education] so propaganda becomes truth for them.

#9 -- BINGO. And therein lies the problem for Republicans/Conservatives/Independents, (anyone not Democrat).

My husband was moaning and groaning last night about how the GOP has to market itself better. I told him, all the marketing in the WORLD will not work if one of the main methods in getting your "message to market" is the press. Not only will they not let your message get through, they will re-write, lie and fabricate to make sure the message you are trying to convey is either lost in the noise or twisted entirely to make you look bad.

I don´t have the answer, but I do know, this article is just one small example of the deck being stacked against us.

I remember Ronald Reagan ran against the press and the Republicans in charge using his personality and a few upbeat phrases and he won.
You have to be likeable because people don´t know or care too much about issues. That was our problem with Romney. The only reason George W. Bush won was personality [I thought he was as dumb as a box of rocks] He meant well, but didn´t ride herd on the Wall Street abuses, and letting that idiot general [what´s his name] make so many blunders in Iraq until Bush finally appointed Petraeus who straightened things up.
We don´t need a dour faced Dole again or a plastic smiling Romney.

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

The phone call to police was a plea to help save a family held by smugglers. But when authorities raided the south Harris County home which they believed held the woman and children Wednesday, they found 110 people imprisoned in a packed, rancid "stash house" where smugglers had locked them away pending payment for their freedom. A tipster had told authorities the night before that he was being extorted by smugglers, and feared for the safety of relatives from Central America. The tipster had said that a coyote drop of the mother, her 7-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son was supposed to

Troops based at the Kadena Air Base in Japan know how to party. On Saturday, six gay and straight service members applied some of their finest makeup and lip synced to "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" in what is believed to be first drag queen and king show on an American military base. The show was thrown in support for the base´s recently formed OutServe-SLDN chapter, a nonprofit advocacy group for the army´s LGBT community. Navy Lt.

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

Judge Robert C. I. McBurney, has ordered that Bernice King turn over her father’s Bible and Nobel Peace Prize to the King Estate for safe keeping until a court decides whether or not her brothers can sell them on the open market. But there is a catch. McBurney said the items are to be stored in safe deposit box at a bank of the estate’s choosing, but the court will control the keys. “I think it is prudent that the two items be stored together in a safe deposit box,” McBurney said after a 2.5 hour hearing Wednesday night in the Fulton County

Eleven days after Journey Ann Cowart celebrated her first birthday, she was dead. The Bartow County sheriff said Monday the baby was beaten to death, allegedly at the hands of her mother and her mother’s boyfriend. And it wasn’t the first time she had been abused, Sheriff Clark Millsap said. “A fractured skull, blunt force trauma to the stomach,” Millsap said, describing Journey’s injuries. “The child had healed ribs that had previously been broken. And she also had a femur that had cracked and had already healed.”

On December 18, 2012, the set of Fox & Friends was both festive and somber. Festive because it was the Christmas season. The three hosts, two men in dark suits flanking a woman in a blue dress, sat on a mustard-colored couch in front of a cheery seasonal backdrop: a lit-up tree, silver-painted twigs, mounds of tinsel, blue and red swatches of fabric, and, here and there, multicolored towers of blown glass with tapering points that made them look surprisingly like minarets. Somber because a terrible thing had happened just four days earlier, in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

Baffling 400,000-Year-Old
Clue to Human Origins

Scientists have found the oldest DNA evidence yet of humans’ biological history. But instead of neatly clarifying human evolution, the finding is adding new mysteries. In a paper in the journal Nature, scientists reported Wednesday that they had retrieved ancient human DNA from a fossil dating back about 400,000 years, shattering the previous record of 100,000 years. The fossil, a thigh bone found in Spain, had previously seemed to many experts to belong to a forerunner of Neanderthals. But its DNA tells a very different story. It most closely resembles DNA from an enigmatic lineage of humans known as Denisovans. Until

SPRING CITY, Pa. — Frank Schaefer gets to keep calling himself a Methodist pastor — at least for the next 30 days. The United Methodist clergyman convicted of breaking church law for officiating at his son´s same-sex wedding was suspended late Tuesday, and ordered by a jury of his fellow pastors to surrender his credentials in a month if he can´t bring himself to adhere to the laws of the church´s Book of Discipline. Schaefer said he had no intention of changing his mind about the church´s teaching on homosexuality, declaring he would perform more gay marriages if asked.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools. The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets
