with the senate finaly set to vote tuesday on funding stem cell research knowing bush has threatended a vetoe and knowing the democrats led the charge in the house. most say that bushes threatend vetoe of funding stem cell research may have handed democrats another silver bullet espically since the house vote was short of vetoe proorfing the bill the first time. and they will not hesitate making it an issue for voters who favor the research. not to mention that one of the biggest pacs espically for reelection funding is the medical ones. bush vetoeing the bill may have give democrats another key. to gaining control. though the senate also has another bill that would include funding for studying new treatments of adult stem cells and to make it illegal to harvet embroyes to destroy for stem cells.espically if a woman gets pregnant just so she can donate her embroya to extract some stem cells. but mostly the bill finaly okaying funding for stem cell research for bush vetoeing it as he says he will may have just handed the democrats another key issue to sway voters. even though some democrats oppose research also besides all is needed in the senate is 70 votes to make it vetoe proof. looks not tomention that the dems will also remind those against stem cell research how they behaved during the terry shivo battle. including bush. but not much longer and the senate finaly votes on stem cell funding. and without being able to sneak in any admenments.

the pennys number may be up

citing polls showing most people find the thing useless and  the rising cost of the metal used to make it the mint is for the first time ever moving towards stopping printing the penny  and making the u.s become penny free for its costing the mint more to make the pennie that is stil only one cent not to mention  how many it costs to produce a buck. the mint says that if certain things aren’t changed the penny could become obsolete for there is even a bill asking congress to do away with the penny even though producing coins is a money maker for the mint. the idea failed once. which also included rounding things up to the nearest nickel that failed also. though plans are to propose it again. for most find the coin a nusence coin. but if the mint does move forward and do away with the penny the big question is what will happend to all those still in circulationon. like lining ash trays or in junk drawers or just jars. for if the mint does decide the penny is done with people will still be stuck with a buch of the coin that would be useless or worse a collectible. though the idea of a penny less socitey may not be too far off. and nasa is going to try and give the united states their own fireworks for thats the next time they are going to try and get discovery moving.

ipods headed to the bathroom.

soon to go where some technology devices shouldn’t go a company knowing how lucrative ipod asseories are and with apples blessing have come up with a toliet paper dispenser that acts as an ipod charger called the icata. it will allow the ipod to be charged and then let the person then play the thing. all while they are in the bathroom answering natures call. to me that idea is headed for areas that even the ipod and similar technology shouldn’t go . for one one wrong move or tug too hard on the dispenser and the ipdod could fall and break or worse someone could need a fresh role and send the ipod into the toliet. not to mention whose idea is it that people need their music when they wipe their butts for the idea is a little too creepy  and kind of going over board for ipod lovers. not to mention breaking the privacy that is the bathroom. and the price for the thing is proably going to be like the same as a regular toliet role dispenser though proably a little more since its going to charge the ipod. but as stated some places even the ipod shouldn’t be sent and the bathroom tops the list.

gratefull dead curse strikes again

i wonder if the gratefull dead ever got the idea that maybe naming the band that wasn’t such a good idea as the so called gratefull dead curse struck once again. with the death of its last keyboard player vince welnick who died of unknown causes at 54 sympathy goes out to his family.which has some dead fans saying once again the curse of the job of keyboard player for the dead has struck for vince replaced   breant mydland who died of drug overdose who replaced orn mckan who died in a car crash  who replaced the orginal keyboard player keith godchaux. having fans thinking that the job is curse with all those who had the job and died though keyboard players horbsy and constaine still live. which should say that the so called curse missed two victims. when really some of the former keyboard players died because of bad timing with faith for if  the job really was cursed the gratefull dead would never have become the legends they are for no one would ever want to play the keyboards for fear of the so called curse for the latest death was just god and jerry deciding they needed his talents  . though most fans will belive its the curse of the job of the gratefull dead keyboard player. and al gore has decided not to run for president in 08 that proves that there is no limit for how many times one can run for president.  but sympathy to the family of vince welnick the latest of the so called gratefull dead curse
proving that bills never die in congress but sooner or later get brought up again till they pass. the senate worke dout a deal that will end the stalemate over the imigrantion reform bill. with plans to try and get it passed by memorial day. the deal brokered by the republican and democrat leaders ends the stalement by one deciding who will pick the groups that will make up the committe to work on a compromise with the house. and also  the new deal will allow democrats say on some amendments to the bill which was one of the reasons the bill died for the democrat were saying they weren’t being allowed to debate amendments the republicans wanted to the bill. plus it will also allow 11 million immigrants working to be on the path to citizen ship though some claimed the orignal plan amounted to amenisty. and with the deal in place looks like another potential issue in the upcomming elections is done with though bush and the republians word has it are scared of the democrats taking control for one thing if they do would be to hold hearings on bushes actions like ordering the nsa wiretaps without warrants and now word has it that he has them making a database of phone calls of peoples. but proving bills don’t say dead on capitil hill and that if congress wants it bad enough a bill lives. the imigration reform bill just got new life.
