Jack Sisson's Life Ethics Blog

We must find new ways through many ethical issues, especially regarding bioethics, medical ethics, and criminal justice. Jack Sisson's 'Life Ethics' blog focuses on numerous areas of concern, including the philosophical and ethical dilemmas surrounding stem-cell research, abortion, medical research, and health care.

On November 4, 2002, The Consortium published this article, which serves as an incomplete timeline of President Bush's veracity, or lack thereof. The author was primarily questioning the "free pass" the press had given Bush on many questionable statements and/or incidents. Some examples:
Bush tried to scare the American people with notions that Iraqi drone aircraft might fly to the United States despite their range of only a few hundred miles
Bush has never given convincing or comprehensive answers to questions about how he slipped into and held onto a cherished Guard spot, allowing him to avoid service in Vietnam
In 1999, Bush tried to block the Democratic initiative in the Texas Legislature to expand the CHIP program to children of parents earning up to twice the federal poverty level. After losing the legislative battle, Bush turned around and claimed credit for the CHIP expansion and his success in working with Democrats.
Bush tried to make an issue out of President Clinton’s practice of allowing his friends and supporters to sleep over at the White House. Bush didn't mention that since he had taken office as Texas governor in 1995, he had 203 guests stay over at the Governor’s Mansion in Austin, Texas.
Bush said the Clinton-Gore administration “took 40 million acres of land out of circulation without consulting local officials. I just cited an example of the administration just unilaterally acting without any input.” Bush was referring to a Clinton-Gore proposal to protect 40 million acres of roadless areas in national forests from more road building and logging. As the Sierra Club noted in a press release, Bush’s statement was false.
