Oh, but that's right, progressives: corporations aren't people, so please don't use any of these innovations that will benefit all of humanity.

Merck & Co., Roche Holding Ltd. and Sanofi SA are working on cancer drugs that would enable a protein called p53 to perform its normal function -- causing badly damaged cells to self-destruct. Cancer cells disable p53, allowing them to multiply, but the drugs would reactivate the protein and kill cancer cells.

The companies’ research is being hailed by cancer specialists as a possible breakthrough because the resulting drugs could be used to treat many forms of the disease. Most cancer drugs on are effective against only certain types of cancer.

Merck, Roche and Sanofi are not yet testing their drugs in clinical trials against many kinds of cancer but Cellceutix, which was not mentioned in the Times article, said Monday it is already conducting such trials with a p53 drug called Kevetrin at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

The incessant class warfare waged by Obama and the Democrats is not only a tactic stolen straight from the Communist Manifesto, but it is also destructive of the civil society.

Class warfare dehumanizes the individual.

But we are all individuals. We are not segments, lumped together into random collections by income, race, gender or religion. We are individuals, each with our own unique characteristics, strengths and weaknesses.

Is the money that an investor could use to fund this cancer research better spent by government?

That's what the Alinsky-trained Democrats would tell us. And they are wrong.

I'll try and wipe the tears from my eyes.

Somehow I am not worried about big pharma, they've been sticking it to us for years.
