Bush Vetoes Stem Cell Bill

Its official.  In his first use of the veto, the president has refused to sign H.R. 810, or ғthe Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2005.  According to Bush, ԓHuman beings are not a raw material to be exploited or a commodity to be bought or sold. The bill, which passed the Senate just shy of the two-thirds majority needed to override a veto, would undo funding limits imposed by the administration in 2001.

  • The silver lining here might be the impact of this on the midterm elections.  Check out the roll call on Daily Kos.

    Foreign Companies Buy U.S. Roads

    U.S. roads and bridges paid for by American taxpayers are being sold to companies abroad. Selling roads and bridges to private companies provides states with extra cash in the short term, but as Indiana’s House Democratic leader has argued, these deals are shortsighted taxpayer rip-offs that funnel long-term profits to foreign coffers.

    U.S. to Allow Israel Another Week of Bombing in Lebanon

    That’s apparently the consensus emerging from the two countries; Israel would be given a week to further weaken Hezbollah, at which point Condoleezza Rice would travel to the region and try to establish a buffer zone.
    Strange, to be hearing about such plans in advance.

  • Meanwhile, the first Israeli ground troops have entered Lebanon

    Israeli Girls Write Messages on Lebanon-Bound Shells

    A nauseating sign of the times:
    Preteen Israeli girls at a heavy artillery position in northern Israel are photographed apparently gleefully scrawling their names and other inscriptions on shells destined to be dropped on Lebanon. One reads “Nazrala with love”—a reference to Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasarallah. (h/t: Zak Brown)
    We find it disgusting whenever the ordnance of ANY country bears these kinds of messages. But to see children doing the writing is almost beyond the pale.
