Americablog: Who Is Telling The Truth?

Americablog's Joe has an excellent post today. What do you do when the administration and the military contradict eachother? Cheney says the insurgency is in its last throes, and the commanders on the ground say that insurgency attacks are at an all-time high.

Which liars are telling the truth this time?

Of Stem Cells and Warfare

From the editorial page of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

President Bush has made his position clear when it comes to embryonic stem cell research that he will not sacrifice one life to save another.

Maybe to better fight these diseases, a branch of the government needs to overstate the dangers of Alzheimer's or Parkinson's or diabetes. Then the executive branch can be fooled into declaring war against these diseases, and Congress can enact legislation to enable a draft of embryos to fight this battle.

Then maybe President Bush could justify sacrificing one life for another...

Why Aren't Canadian GM Plants Closing?

...But I digress.
The American auto industry executives never learn from their mistakes. Remember the eighties, when GM bet its future on gas-guzzling tanks like the infamous K car? When oil prices rose, consumers made the thrifty, dependable Honda Civic the number one car in America. Twenty-five years later, GM and Ford bet their future on mammoth SUVs and muscle cars, and Americans responded to rising oil prices by buying Toyotas and Hondas.

The American media, in its typical incisive fashion, reports that GM blames the closings on rising healthcare costs. The talking heads infer, from this limited information, that if only the greedy unions would cease asking for their heart pills and checkups for their children, GM might be able to turn a profit.

Without a doubt, the fact that General Motors plans to cut 25,000 jobs and close five American auto plants will have reverberations on this side of the border, but the initial bloodshed will take place in Detroit rather than St. Catherine's, Windsor, or London.

How is this possible? They make the same cars in Canada. All my life, I've been told by the free market capitalists that a American national health care system would put us at a competitive disadvantage...

If that's the case, why aren't GM's many Canadian plants closing?
