How many girls living in the crappy dorms will think "I hate my dorm. I hate my roommate. All I have to do to move into the nice, new dorms with my own room is..." Come on, do you really think that will happen? I was in the military for 24 years. I've seen plenty of "lets get married so we can move out of the dorms" and "Oops, I'm pregnant. I guess I can't go on that deployment." Will people make major life decisions if offered relatively minor incentives? Absolutely.

"Christians are prone to look at the number of people executed in the last 2000 years for accepting Christ and think no one would die for a lie." The real argument is that the apostles were in position to know whether of not they were telling the truth, yet they went to their executions rather than recant (except for Jon, who was banished but no executed.) Rational people do not die for that which they know to be a lie, and there is nothing to indicate they were irrational. It is reasonable to conclude they were reliable witnesses.

That's "ballots" in English.
"We don't call eggs baby chicks" I would call the contents of the egg a chick, assuming fertilization has taken place and a chick is growing. -------------- "not every fertilized egg is implanted", etc. People die every day at various stages of life. Does that mean it's OK to kill them, since they were going to die anyway?

"instead of focusing on primaries to defeat Republicans we Conservatives should be focusing on defeating Democrats, so we can regain majority status " So we can then be sold out by traitor like McCain and Grahamnesty. Sorry, we played that game before. It didn't work. We need a majority that is actually a majority.

"That is a worthy battle – a winnable battle. ObamaCare is not." So you won't take on ObamaCare in it's early stages when it's advocates see an impending train wreck, but you want to take on Medicare and Social Security? That's amazingly idiotic.

Repealing it is a better solution. Tort reform is a better solution. Taking steps to make existing health insurance more portable is a better solution. There are plenty of better solutions, but the leftists in both parties (all of the Ds and too many of the Rs) are interested in control, not solutions.
