    Alas, I doubt this is DOA because it is not something the state govt should be funding. Its DOA because some people have an issue with this type of research.

  2. After we secure funding for the NASCAR museum, but ONLY after that is complete, can we turn our attention to such secondary concerns as science, education and jobs, of which this bill would provide all three to the state.

    Yeah, I would consider this bill important.

    When I see Republicans who ought to know better opposing scientific advancement to appease the Nancy Schaefer/Sadie Fields wing of their party, it reminds me why I’m not one of them.

    Any truth to the rumor that the GOP legislative leadership is going to introduce a bill requiring voters to prove that they are not a human-animal hybrid before they can cast a ballot?

    Hilarious–GetReal, you can never be too careful.

    Speaking of the Sadie Fields wing, did I miss the discussion on this board about her hosting Pat Buchanan a week or two ago to discuss immigration issues.

    Her justificiation was that Christians believe in the rule of law, so the Christian Coalition has an interest in stopping illegal immigration.

    Is there anyone out there that can explain with a straight face what business the Christian Coalition has getting involved with the immigration debate? Anyone?

    I’m almost certain there is nothing about immigration or border security in the Bible.
