"No, I don't know that Atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered as patriots, this is one nation under God."
-- George Bush Sr.
Nice conflict of interest (again). Is there ANYTHING in the constitution that he agrees with? I doubt it.
Check out this video (His quote is cited in it, by the way). I like Carl Segan's quote, at the end.
I am quite happy to be in the 10% of the populous, btw.

"Bush issues first veto of presidency on stem cell research
President Bush says he's vetoed a bill that would have allowed expanded federal funding for embryonic stem-cell research -- because it "crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect."
The measure, which cleared the Senate by a lopsided margin yesterday, eases curbs on federal funding of research that uses embryonic stem cells.
Bush says the funding crosses an ethical line -- by using taxpayer money for a procedure that destroys life.
Backers of the measure say the tens of thousands of frozen embryos in question are the byproducts of fertility treatment and are otherwise destined for destruction.
The White House says a number of "snowflake" children are present for Bush's remarks. They're what stem cell research opponents call the offspring of ebmryo adoptions."
So the dip-wad would rather throw the embroys in the trash, rather than cure an illness or save a life. This bastard needs to fall off a fracken horse and loose the use of his limbs, just so he can have a first-hand accounting of how the research could help. Jeezuz! ASSHOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yea. I am sure my comments will piss some of you off, but I just don't understand how intelligent people can still believe in this inept bungle of a president!

1) use mkdir to create the new directory where you want it.
2) cd into the directory you want to copy
3) Run this command.
find . -depth -print | cpio -pvdum /
4) This should copy everything from its current location to the new
directory while leaving all of the file permissions, ownership, and
The key to this command is that you must be in the directory that you
want to copy. It basically copies all files and directories from your
current location on down to the new directory.
