E. O. Wilson once said of Marxism, "Great theory, wrong species." According to Hagan, Wilson advocated for Marxism. Hagan is an idiot, and any Republican who depends on her for objective facts about a candidate is an idiot, and should change parties. Socialized medicine is a great idea, until you look at the underlying aspects of it. If you realize you are dealing with humans and their greed, sloth, and corruption, as well as their stubbornness and desire for independence, socialized anything becomes something that is unsustainable and unworkable. When you consider the type of people who desire to become bureaucrats, and how the bureaucracy stifles any form of common sense, you should realize that medical care is one of the last things you want to turn over to the government. Anyone that took economics courses and stayed awake through class knows that when a good or service become "free", it is over-utilized. Over utilization of a "free" service results in too much demand, too little supply, and rationing. Not what you want in medical care.
Did you read what you just wrote? "The original video showed the cops taking the AR-15 out of the trunk of the car." If the AR-15 was in the trunk of the car, how did the shooter manage to put the weapon in the trunk AFTER HE WAS DEAD? The shooter committed suicide when the first responders arrived. He did not, could not, have used that AR-15 in the shootings.
How interesting, and how typically moonbat liberal! Mr. Giles has given a premise and then backed up that premise with concrete examples. Moonbat does not like what Mr. Giles has to say, and then, instead of refuting Mr. Giles' statements with facts contrary to what Mr. Giles asserst, starts calling names. In other words, "Mr. Giles said something I don't like but can't refute, so he's a poopyhead." Yeah, that's the way to win a debate, Moonbat.
No, GM is not Chevrolet. Chevrolet is a division of GM. Other GM divisions are Cadillac, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac. And, it was GM that was bailed out and their secured cerditors rudely swindled by Ear Leader and his band of Merry Marxists.
Fourth, in 2008 Obama outraised McCain by nearly 3 to 1. This year, Romney is outraising Obama by 2 to 1, and Obama's fund raising amounts are way down. Fifth, Obama has not been attracting the crowds this time that he attracted in 2008. He had to move his acceptance speech from a 70000 seat facility to a 20000 seat facility at the Convention. Yes, they gave the excuse of possible inclement weather. But, they did the same thing in Las Vegas this week and gave the same excuse ... except there was no inclement weather expected. Teh Won just doesnt' have the numbers or the enthusiasm this time around. Keep up your spirits, and vote in November. Then, sit back and watch liberal heads explode on the evening of November 6.
Xkatmom, I hope you are not despairing. First of all, take what the pollsters are saying with a grain of salt ... hell, with an entire salt mine of salt. Most of the polls have been oversampling democratics by +5 to +9, and Obama is still getting only a 2 point win. Second, search for "Bradley Effect". Third, look at the core constituencies that Obama has managed to tick off and the issues that ticked them off: Blacks (gay marriage), Jews (Israel), unions (lack of interest in Wisconsin recall election, trying to close down coal mines, etc.). He has also lost the convicted felon vote, the illegal alien vote, and the necro-American vote in Florida, when DOJ lost their courtcase to prevent Florida from cleaning up their voter rolls.
Grim, I'm imagining it, and grinning like the Cheshire Cat. Umm... was that racist? Or speciesist? Do I care? I'm going to get a big bag of pop corn, order in a pizza, and have a case of beer in the cooler ready to go for the evening of November 6. Oh, by the way, you Democrat voters: Michelle Obama inadvertently gave the wrong date for election night. Instead of November 2, Democrats are supposed to vote on November 7, five days later. You notice how they sound so much alike? Republicans and Libertarians and Independents are supposed to vote on November 6. This has been a public service announcement.
Carl, your statement is as galactically stupid, as Amy would say (I'd say weapons grade stupid), as Rep. Yvette Clarke. You would have the Republicans ignore and exclude conservatives like Lt. Col West and Herman Cain, to name just two? I have news for you Herr Sturmbanfuerher: every ethnic group has some bozos in it. The blacks have people like Ms. Clarke, the whites have people like you.
I don't know if this is true of California, but it wouldn't surprise me: in Oklahoma, the teachers unions whine and whine about how underpaid they are. Fortunately for Oklahomans, the State Department of Education has a website called schoolreportcard.org . The site give demographic information on each school district, including median income in the district and average (mean) teachers' salary. With very few, if any, exceptions, teachers earn well above the median income in their district. In other words, they are not underpaid. But, they always want more and more and more...

Legitimate Rape Arguments

"How could someone conclude logically that a rape victim’s body has the capacity to prevent conception in the wake of sexual assault?" Anyone who has read the medical literature could logically make this assertion. While it is not, repeat, NOT impossible for a rape victim to become pregnant from the rape, it is a fact that when a human is threatened or frightened, such as in a rape, adrenalin and cortisol is released into the bloodstream in the fight or flight reacation. It is a fact that cortisol can cause temorary sterility or cause spontaneous abortion (miscarriage) in a female.
