Lois's comment that "yet again; conservatives are on the wrong side of history" reminded of something I read recently: "History is all hindsight; it is a sizing up, a way of looking at things. It is not what happened or how things really were, but an evaluation...The modern college teaches us, if nothing else, to accept history on authority. Yet at the end of his life the great Eduard Meyer...marveled that he had always been most wrong where he thought he was most right, and vice versa." (Hugh Nibley)
Sadly, the USPS is NOT "the only entity that takes money for a service and will not refund that money when they botch the service" The Washington State ferry system doesn't give refunds either.
Americans care very much about these immigrant children. We welcome immigrants. But the chaotic way in which immigration is being handled is straining our ability to care for newcomers as well as our own. Policies must be put into place and then enforced that allow immigrants in gradually so newcomers can be absorbed into our society.
These children aren't leaving. Accept that. We must keep drilling it into the heads of our reps and senators that the border must be secured so the foolishness and chaos of current immigration policy is fixed. Maybe dollar signs will finally get their attention in a way that wisdom has not.
i, too, believe that Planned Parenthood is morally bankrupt. However, oral contraceptives are still drugs and still have potentially serious side effects. They are taken as course of treatment, usually for several years, and it seems unwise to sell them over the counter.
Stam, thanks for the opportunity to share two quotes: "The traditional family is under heavy attack. I do not know that things were worse in the times of Sodom and Gomorrah. … We see similar conditions today. They prevail all across the world. I think our Father must weep as He looks down upon His wayward sons and daughters.” (Gordon B. Hinckley) "You have a choice. You can wring your hands and be consumed with concern for the future or choose to use the counsel the Lord has given to live with peace and happiness in a world awash with evil. If you choose to concentrate on the dark side, this is what you will see." "Now the brighter side. Despite pockets of evil, the world overall is majestically beautiful, filled with many good and sincere people. God has provided a way to live in this world and not be contaminated by the degrading pressures evil agents spread throughout it. You can live a virtuous, productive, righteous life by following the plan of protection created by your Father in Heaven: His plan of happiness. It is contained in the scriptures and in the inspired declarations of His prophets. He clothed your intelligence with spirit and made it possible for you to enjoy the wonder of a physical body. When you use that body in the way He has decreed, you will grow in strength and capacity, avoid transgression, and be abundantly blessed.' (Richard L. Scott"
There is still a sliver of hope for the U.S. The Supreme Court is being petitioned to take up the case of same-sex marriage in Utah. "...the driving issue in this dispute — whether the Constitution allows the people of several states to retain marriage as an historically gendered institution that exists primarily to unite a man and a woman for the welfare of their children, or whether it compels them to redefine marriage as a genderless institution aimed at providing social acceptance and recognition of intimate adult relationships,”
I think you are confusing being pro-immigration with being pro-amnesty. Immigration is a good thing when it is done with wisdom and order. What the President wants to mandate is an escalation of foolishness and chaos.
Seems like it would be a good idea for Republicans to make the subject of immigration reform newsworthy and relevant right now, and show that they have a rational and lawful plan of action that can be taken by Congress.
A survey out of curiosity, then? Not a research paper? Ok. I will always vote for the most fiscally conservative candidate unless his/her character is an issue. In hindsight, I made a good choice when I left the governor position blank in 1990 for governor of Texas. That paved the way for a better Republican candidate...and eventually a president.
