The woman is obviously retarded. She doesn't realize that the government knows better than she does what is good for her. They also know that she needs affordable mental care. And obviously, she knows that the government knows which doctor or other health provider she should be using. Too bad if she likes the doctor who has been providing her with health care for 20 years! How dare she suggest that she is qualified to make that decision for herself! She should be thrilled that she has such great insurance, even though she loses her home through foreclosure. She can smile when she gets free "women's heath services" (aka birth control, abortion, etc.). I thought only the young were going to get screwed by ObamaCare! Evidently, it's an equal opportunity screwing that we all get, regardless of gender, age, or menopausal circumstances.
We had no business in fighting for democracy in Iraq when we don't have it here. Moreover, what justifies all the deaths, maiming, and loss of treasury by fighting for democracy in a country with no tradition of it and no popular support for it? Do you really think Iraq is going to become Switzerland? It will become at best a puppet government run by Iran! We have no business in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Kuwait, Somalia, and every other Muslim country in the Middle East. The oil will be pumped no matter what we do or don't do. It all goes into the same vat. Just like our "own" oil does.

You are correct. A sperm cell and an ovum are NOT alive. They are (or are not) VIABLE. That means that they COULD become a human life under the right circumstances. They do not have a human DNA signature, since humans have 46 chromosomes and zygotes have only 23. Cloning a zygote would only get you more zygotes. You could clone, theoretically, any complete human cell and in the process "create" an identical (unless there are errors!) human cell.
I suggest all the Hollywood Elite and the tree huggers boycott the use of all petroleum based products, including any products or services produced even partially involving any consumption of so-called fossil fuels. Furthermore, they should tell anyone who took any form of fossil fueled transportation to attend any of their performance venues be publicly chastised by all in the entertainment "industry" as being energy gluttons. They should also give up any form of transportation, including the use of public and private roads, railways, aircraft, etc., that do not use exclusively solar or wind power and their source of energy. No private automobiles, even electric vehicles (they are fueled primarily by coal). New standard of living
If it is right to be concerned about the savage taking of the lives of 20 innocent children at Sandy Hook, then where is our compassion for the 55 MILLION innocent lives, taken "legally" under Roe v Wade for convenience and rationalized by corrupting our language in such a way that we can think of these little ones (that is how "fetus" is defined) as mere tissue, like a tumor, which can be removed and placed in the medical waste bin.
It is now plain to see from the above just what we are up against. Troglodytes masquerading as thinking beings. Ignorant savages such as these are the true enemy of the people. Unfortunately, many such individuals are making laws for the rest of us, which of course do not apply to themselves. This "person" doesn't know the meaning of civil discourse and even if "it" did (the troglodyte), it would not have the intellectual resources to practice it.

Fetus is Latin for "little one" which is what a baby is, after all. A little, innocent, human being. When the difference between a legal murder (abortion) and an illegal one is simply geography. And that meaningless line has become blurred by the procedure called "partial birth abortion" which is nothing of the kind. This process is not what it sounds like. What is involved is an abortionist (murderer) extending a forceps inside the uterus and finding the baby's still soft skull and crushing it. At that point, it is a simple matter to draw the remains of the murdered corpse outside the mother's (accessory to the murder) body and disposing of it in the medical waste bin at the site of the murder. "Abortion" = "murder" = The ugly truth

I imagine the nutty professor is quite comfortable with the fact that Federal Bureaucracies like the Social Security Admininstration have police departments who are armed with weapons that go well beyond the need for self defense. Earlier this year, numberous purchase requests went out for nearly 3 BILLION rounds of hollow point ammunition and claimed in a news release that these expensive and deadly rounds were for "target practice." Our government is getting bigger and more menacing to the public they "serve" than any foreign power is. And those who want something other than a single shot hunting rifle for self defense are nut jobs?

Oh, brilliant one: What should the labor to make a pair of Nike shoes be? 50%? 90% 99%? How many people could afford a car if the cost of labor were 50%? Answer: Practically no one. Should we strive to make labor a bigger and bigger proportion of the cost of goods? That way, everyone who has a job will be well paid. Problem is, there won't BE any jobs. The reason manufacturing jobs are leaving the US is strictly because the unions want fewer jobs, and better paying jobs, is that they think you can create wealth through protectionism. You cannot. The vast majority of the union jobs in the US are not in manufacturing. They are in GOVERMENT...which produces no wealth, and consumes much of the wealth created by free enterprise.
