Pregnancy does not occur until an embryo is implanted in the womb. More than half of all embryos naturally fail to implant themselves and are discharged during a woman's normal menses.

Alec Baldwin, Drama Queen

Several years ago, when Alec Baldwin saw my daughter, her friend and me consulting a New York subway map, he offered his assistance and could not have been more gracious. When I teased him about not leaving the country, as he had threatened to do, if George W. Bush was reelected, he took it in good humor. Although I do not agree with Baldwin's political views, like many actors he apparently has a big ego and a short fuse. I'm glad that I'm not living in the public eye having my every move tracked and picked apart by representatives of the media and the public. My long fuse might be shorter if I had a daily dose of such scrutiny.

Obamacare Changes in One Infographic

Thanks to ObamaCare, my wife's BC&BS coverage, effective April 1st, goes from $790/month with $30 copays to $1,500/month with a $4,000 deductible and $50 copays after the deductible has been satisfied. So much for "affordable" healthcare.
Unfortunately, due to the endless appeals process, implementing the death penalty costs our society more than incarcerating a murderer for life. An execution will also make a martyr out of the Boston bomber in the eyes of some. Unabomber Theodore John "Ted" Kaczynski remains obscure in one of our supermax prisons, is no longer a danger to society and is never mentioned in news reports. Perhaps obscurity, by spending a lifetime in a supermax cell, would be the best punishment for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and it would cost the taxpayers less money.
If Obama was willing to shut down our federal government to protect ObamaCare funding why waste the political capital and energy to pass a bill repealing it, knowing full-well that it will be vetoed in the White House? Let the Dems bury themselves with this debacle. Many are already running from it.
Most pregnancies in the USA are unplanned. The women who had their fetuses aborted probably could not afford to feed and care for them. Did New York need 83,750 more potentially abused and neglected children and/or welfare recipients?
Unless Republicans get elected, they cannot effect change. Losing an election accomplishes nothing.
If William Marotta did not see potential paternity obligations coming (no pun intended) from what he did willingly, then he was either incredibly naïve or an idiot.
No matter what your views may be on abortion, trying to take away a woman's right to choose has been an election-losing strategy for Republicans. The party's focus should be on getting our economy straightened out, getting the Keystone Pipeline project approved, creating an environment for businesses to create jobs, fixing the messes caused by ObamaCare and straightening out the foreign policy debacles that have been caused by our current administration.
"As a libertarian, I wholeheartedly support the right of anyone to refuse service to anyone, for any reason." That was exactly the same argument used by segregationists when black people were denied service.
Acquiring a gun of any kind without a background check and permit in New Jersey is illegal. Handgun carry permits are virtually impossible for anyone who is not a law-enforcement officer to obtain. That hasn't stopped 100 murders in Newark and dozens of gun murders in Trenton this year. In my humble opinion, handguns are a personal item that should be chosen by the individual who will use it. Even if I lived in a state where gun gifts were not regulated, I would not give a handgun to someone else unless he or she had chosen a favorite after holding and comparing what is available.
