    • I'm an independent -this was well written -I find the humor in it. Remember, though, this is a board for ACTC. And remember the statement "united we stand, divided we fall". If we don't all come together and work out this country's serious issues, we're gonna do the latter and that would be a travesty. You'll never have a perfect gov't - even the middle ground is better than where we're headed right now....I just had to put in my two cents....comments on ACTC, anyone?

      • Crying over spilt milk, why didn't we vote in November to save the country from where it is heading? Experience is the best teacher. A dose of reality is strong and good medicine for liberal idiocy.

      • On some issues, there is no middle ground. There is no middle ground on slavery. The US had to fight a civil war to end slavery. Slavery was too profitable for those who practiced it to end it.

        The Republicans want to enslave the 99% to enrich the 1%. There is no middle ground on the modern form of Republican supported slavery. The super rich Republicans are too greedy to not rip-off the poor, the middle class, and rich folks not in the old boys club alike. The Republican House speaker could not get his own Republican House Congressmen to vote for his version of middle ground Plan B. It is the Republicans who are against any form of middle ground, as demonstrated by them not voting even for Plan B.

        During the decade of the Republican administration, the religious wing of the Republican Party, the Republican President, as well as many if not most Republican Congressmen mounted a tremendous campaign against ESC research and development, that severely hurt small biotech's like Geron and ACTC to be able to raise funds without using toxic funding, as it was difficult to form big pharma partnerships, and to raise funds from none toxic sources.

        Geron initially had partnership with big pharma Roche on a cancer project, but Roche withdrew after Bush started to attack ESC stem cells. Later big pharma Merck had a partnership with Geron on a cancer vaccine project, but Merck headed for the hills after it came under attack. Geron eventually got out of stem cells as funds dwindled, but it was at least able to start the first ESC US human trial, which open the way for the FDA to allow ACTC to start human trials. ACTC, as a pure ESC company without any cancer project, never got big pharma partnerships during the decade of Republican attacks. ACTC had to raise funds from toxic sources. How toxic were these fund raising became apparent in the recent year after ACTC was sued by the toxic fund sources, and ACTC had to give these toxic sources huge numbers of stock shares to settle these lawsuits from toxic funders, resulting in great dilutions. There was also lawsuits by conservatives to prevent and to delay federal approval of stem cell lines, which also natively effects ACTC. The Republican caused 2008 Great Recession also made it more difficult for small biotech's to raise funds in this harsh general economic environment.

        The Republican Congressmen will not give any middle ground, as they had sign pledges with a lobbyist for no tax increases for the rich. Even if the Democrats give in to the Republican demand for zero tax increases for the rich, the fanatical faction of the Republican Congress will still push for the debt ceiling freeze.

        These are two separate issues for the diehard Republican Congressmen of no tax increases for the rich, and of debt ceiling freeze. In 2011, the Bush tax cuts were in full swing after the Democrats gave in to the Republican demands for extension, and still the diehard Republican House Congressmen mounted a full scale effort to freeze the debt ceiling, even calling for a Constitutional amendment, which resulting in the compromise of the passing of the interim automatic cut law (which is now called the fiscal cliff.) It was not clear why the diehard Republican House Congressmen caved in to the compromise (perhaps they thought they could with the Presidential election in the following year.) Recently, the Democrats proposed that the Republicans not to freeze the debt ceiling, and the Senate Republican leader laughed saying no deal. The Republicans do not want any middle ground.

        The Democrats have to watch out for the old businessman trick of "Bait-and-Switch" where after making a middle ground deal with the "moderate" Republican Congressmen, the hardcore Republican will emerge to renege on any middle ground deal.

        With some people, there is no middle ground as Lincoln found out.

    • You know you live in a Country run by greedy super rich hiring greedy lobbyist with foreign activist tie if ... almost all of the Republican Congressmen signed pledges with a lobbyist, instead of pledging to the American people.

      You know you live in a Country run by idiots if.... the Republican speaker of the House pretends he can get enough votes from his own Republican party, when the Republican speaker is wasting the time of the nation as he cannot get his own Republican tea party, and hard core Republicans to vote on his plan B.

      You know you live in a Country run by idiots if.... Republican Treasury Secretary with the nudging of libertarian, tea party, conservative Republicans let investment bank Lehman Brothers to go under by not helping, triggering off the beginning of the 2008 Great Recession.

      You know you live in a Country run by idiots if.... the Republican President, and Republican Congressmen were so busy trying to outlaw ESC research and development, that the Republicans did not bother to act on the FBI report of many suspicious middle eastern people learning in American flying schools to just fly airplanes, but not showing interest in landing skills.

      You know you live in a Country run by idiots if.... Republican and conservative bashers post obsessively on a biotech medical message board trying to delay and to hurt sick patients.

      or if you live in a country that has by far the most privately owned guns in the world

      and it is still way ahead of any other country in gun deaths of all types

      with even Yemen being a distant second.

      That's right, pole, if presence and accessibility of guns made a country safe the U.S. would already be by far the safest country in the world, wouldn't it?
