First the Obama Administration kills the Keystone pipeline. No need to comment on it here – if environmentalists think that preventing this pipeline from being built has any impact on carbon emissions or pollution, or somehow “saves” the midwestern water reservoirs they are badly mistaken. Now, I just learned that the Obama Justice Department is insanely challenging a recent appeals court ruling that would have allowed bone marrow donors (now really just blood donors) to be compensated. The “no money” quote:
The donor registry said its experience is that “a donor system that relies on the human desire to help others is far superior to one that focuses on self-gain.”
Of course, some of us disagree on what the term “superior” means.
