I had to do some research about that.  I'm not quite sure what your point is, other than to take a shot at the first lady.  If the story is true, Michelle stopped a trial from targeting an all black demographic out of irrational fear of it looking like the Tuskegee abuses.  I believe that decision was wrong.     Not every Republican is a knuckle-dragging anti-evolutionist science denier.  Not every Democrat is always rational, making evidence-based decisions 100% of...

Veridian Dynamics: Money before people.
