I'd love to see what those 47% who would like fewer restrictions on abortion think are the present restrictions. The present state of the law is abortion on demand for any reason or no reason through six months, and for almost any reason even after six months. The present areas of conflict are as to whether the public should pay for abortions and as to whether doctors and nurses should be required to take steps to keep a baby alive. On July 4 of this year, my granddaughter was born at six months. She is alive and doing well. If our daughter had been inclined to kill that baby instead of having that baby--if she'd had an abortion instead of a C-section--the law would have said that was fine without even an inquiry as to the reason for abortion. It is hard to see how there could be fewer restrictions on abortion. But it tells you something that people in a southern state are pro-abortion. If they're pro-abortion in North Carolina, they're not anti-abortion many places at all.

There are two ways to assess what someone's work is worth. One is: "How much will a willing employer pay a willing employee?" That's market value. But there's another measure. That is: "How much more would you, were the market to become more competitive for labor, be prepared to pay before the point at which you would eliminate the position?" In hard times, when people are desperate for work, the market will be far below what the work's value to the employer is. In a boom, the market is likely to be very close to that maximum that an employer would, if he had to, be willing to pay. I remember, in the mid-1980's, there was a McDonald's hiring people for $8.50 an hour because labor was short in the area and times were good.
We've known for a long time that Obama and his State Department like ISIS better than Fox News. Someone who wants to kill you is preferable to someone who opposes you politically.
It is time to smite the Amalekite.
The only proper response is--"For every one of our people, a thousand of yours. If you want a war to the death, a war to the death you shall have."
Even if she somehow gets a plurality in the primary election, if those who supported the third candidate in the primary then fall in behind her opponent, she still goes down.
When you stop doing the things that made you great, it becomes hubris. As in the people of Israel, brought out of Egypt and fed in the wilderness by God, who got into Canaan and began "a whoring after the Baalim". As in Rome, that gradually weakened the institutions and practices that had made it great in the days of the Republic, and thereby sowed the seeds of its own destruction. As in America, which forgot that it was industry and faith that got us to where we are--not "diversity" or "inclusiveness".
Maybe the guy's a complete jerk. But if he was elected, and hasn't been formally removed from the office of mayor, nobody has any business evicting him.

Voter ID laws aren't really objected to because they would suppress voter turnout--unless you can show that the states have been conspiring to deny black people drivers' licenses or state ID's. It's all about promoting vote fraud in Democrat-controlled areas, vote fraud that has been rampant in major cities at least since 1960. Indeed, Chicago isn't even the worst any more--that title belongs to Philadelphia and Cleveland.
I don't think it has anything to do with black or woman. I'd love to see President Tim Scott or President Susana Martinez!
