She was great on Law and Order.
They said they would call back and never did on numerous occasions. I wrote to him and requested help twice and have not received any response in over 2 months. If you can't at least make an effort to help a Republican constituant during a tough election then something is wrong.
There are a lot of people here in Missouri fighting to defeat Amendment #2. An editorial in the Springfield News-Leader came out solidly against amendment #2. Of course St. Louis Post-Dispatch and Kansas City Star favor the amendment but that is to be expected from those two liberal fishwraps. Besides the Catholics the Baptists are working very hard in their churches to defeat this amendment too. So be of good cheer, it's not over until the fat lady sings.
Who is Mike Sweeney? He looks familiar.
Hmmm...is is picture time?
I find your comment hard to believe. I contact Senator Talent all the time on line and with personal letters and I have always received a response.
You can't throw interceptions when you've been benched!

Besides, if he'd stop drinking diet sodas which is most likely why he's got the disease in the first place...aspartame is the culpirt...daily he'd drink gallons of diet soda...
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Had to leave after I posted. By now I guess you cracked the nut to see what was inside. ;0)
And her husband's a football player, so he can take on the union goons!
Good job Travis and great screen name.
Actually, both she and her husband are Union Members.
answer: Adult stem cell research is now permitted, even is Missouri.
Amendment 2 is reported to include legalizing CLONING and embrionic stem cell experimentation. Note Michael J. Fox's words "expanding stem cell research" I don't think he uses cloning or embrionic in the ad. Clonig is not legal now.
I wish they would show this in Maryland but that wont happen all the t>v stations are for the lying demo-rats
"A small number of Parkinson's disease patients, like actor Michael J. Fox, first develop symptoms at a much younger age...It usually takes 12-14 years before a patient declines to the stage where drugs afford only limited benefit.
...Spain, where researchers working with monkeys extracted cells from a site near the carotid artery in the neck and transplanted them into the monkey's own brain, where they produced the key neuro-chemical dopamine at 35 times the rate of fetal cells. This raises the possibility of a Parkinson's patient being able to be his own donor, utilizing a group of cells with potentially far greater efficacy...
Parkinson's disease expert Dr. Mark Guttman of the University of Toronto points out that up to 3% of brain cells in a person's gray matter may actually be a form of neural-based stem cell. A pool of these cells can be extracted from brain tissue removed from humans for a variety of therapeutic reasons, then cultured, stored, and eventually encouraged to mature into dopamine-producing cells, suitable for transplant. -- "Media Sugarcoats Fetal Tissue Transplant Failure", Paul Ranalli, M.D.
What you need is someone with Parkinson's who opposes ESC research.
Royals 1B and a known Christian athlete (SCA HQ is in Kansas City). All-around nice guy.
Also for an ad with such stars it is of embarrassingly low quality, and the Cavizel aramaic opening line strikes most as weird.
Never saw her dressed liked that on L&O.
"A promising new experimental brain procedure. Known as a thalamotomy, this procedure destroys the part of the thalamus involved in movement control. In 1996, Fox underwent the operation, and it helped relieve the worst of the tremors."
Thanks for the heads up.
Me too. That ad is TERRIFIC and should take the wind out of MJ Fox's sails. I am very sorry that he suffers from such a debilitating, incurable disease, but I agree with Rush that it is reprehensible for him to allow himself to be used in such a way by the Democrat propaganda machine.
I saw that video with Michael J. Fox. Nervous little individual isn`t he?
Well hold on there! I AM a football fan. Of FOOTBALL. Not the Starbucks Commodity of the NFL. I like watching college kids play that are having fun and still have the cartilage and skulls to survive the game, not doing it because they get millions of dollars and are pumped up on pain killers. I was a "series hugh" Cowboy fan growing up when I thought that the teams had something to do with the pride of their locale. The "Tennessee Oiler" sham, etc just made it kinda redundant and fast-food. Super-size, super-bowl, whatever. USC v. Texas in the Rosebowl last year---THAT was a football championship.
And baseball is just slightly less boring than soccer, I'm just not a fan of 9 or 15 innings and my arm is tired so someone wins! Yay!
And no, I don't love Raymond!
Anyway, I apologize for the diatribe on professional-sports and sitcoms, but to the extent that this ad is directed at people who take their political direction from QBs and sitcom actresses, maybe this is good! I wish it luck.
Very very very cool
Love his rec room.
Just curious; How concerned was Michael J. Fox about a cure for Parkinsons before he had it? Every year I give $500 to MDA even though I bust my arse as a taxi driver... I`ve lost nobody, no family members to any nerve disease or any muscle disease yet I give $500 every year without fail (which takes me about 3 - 4 days to make)...How much did you give Mikey before you were diagnosed?
It is the truth. I have written twice and called his office five times. The people are very friendly on the phone but then do not call me back as they assured me they would.
"Finally a response to Michael J Fox."
And not a moment too soon!
This is sad. I really used to like Fox. Oh well...add him to the ever-growing list of Hollyweird leftists that I now can't freaking stand. And as for his performance in the ad...I just figured somebody had called him 'chicken'.
That is so true. Another good point is that if it were expected to be wildly successful (and therefore profitable), there would be more willingness on the part of private corporations to fund it.
yes, just in time.
Man oh man, that is just awesome. Jim, Kurt, Patricia....good job!
It was called 'acting'. And just like lying and pretending, it's what lefties do best.
What happened to Alex P. Keaton of Family Ties? He was a republican in that and the old man was the whinney liberal. He must have switched roles.
Yep. Too bad too. I liked Alex P Keaton best....
That's cause the lib lefties have managed to convince many Reps that they HAVE feelings. Just cause they emote and use emotion like a political club, doesn't mean they have the capability to 'feel'. It's a convenient tool lefties use against non-lefties that don't know any better.
Its like they are afraid they're going to hurt somebodies feelings. It makes me so damn mad.
I would rather have those that support life want to speak out than those that want to destroy life. Gotta kill you to see those pro-lifers. TOO FREAKIN BAD!
Drudge had a headline that the candidate Michael J. Fox is supporting herself had VOTED AGAINST stem-cell research.
And now I'll be rooting for Suppan! ;-}
" Last March Fox underwent a thalamotomy -- brain surgery aimed at managing the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Since then, the worst of his tremors have been eliminated and he takes the drug Sinemet to control the milder tremors, he said."
Wow. Great catch. Send this to Rush.
NBC News did their expected hit piece on Rush tonight- showed video of the evil, heartless Rush demonstrating how Fox was whipsawing from side to side in the ad .
Mitchell ( of course ) never explained that Rush was contrasting Fox's wild , wild, wild whole body tremors in the ad with calm , tremor free guest appearances on Boston Legal.
Fox's admitted purposeful discontinuation of all medication prior to stem cell and Parkinson's testimony in front of Congress was also not mentioned-naturally.
Then Andrea Mitchell interviewed Fox and his tremors were under control and barely noticeable-thus making Rush's point.
If a diabetic celebrity purposefully stopped their insulin and went into diabetic coma for a Republican ad and then the family blamed Democrats for their loved one's disease- the hew and cry from the media would be immeasurable.
This is the rebuttal that needs to get out there!
Yes, it's infuriating as heck. The Dims always try to get them to apologize and "denounce" some conservative activist when he makes a statement. They're not called the Stupid Party for nothing.
