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.

Abortion and Rape

Akin did not say that women cannot get pregnant from rape. What he said (paraphrased) is that in many cases (not all), the woman's body will either prevent conception from taking place, or a miscarriage will take place. That is a fact. When a person is threatened, adrenalin is produced for the fight or flight syndrome. Cortisol is also released into the bloodstream. Cortisol is the agent that will prevent conception, or cause miscarriage. Read the medical literature. He did use an unfortunate phrase when he said "legitimate rape". I believe what he meant was actual forcible rape, not "OMG! I've been screwing a guy my parents don't like, now I'm pregnant. I was raped" rape, i..e. abortion to avoid responsibility for actions.

How to Turn Paul Ryan into "Obama's Shadow"

Sorry, annfan, but it is you who have no clue. The following "yardstick" is Article 2, Section 1, Paragraph 5 of the Constitution of the United States of America. Perhaps you've heard of it? "No person except a nautral born Citizen, of a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President: neither shall any Peron be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of Thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States." Is that enough of a "yardstick" for you?
Blair, Rasmussen as of 7-26, shows Romney 48% and Obama 44%. I believe that shows Romney ahead by 4 points. I am not sure if the polling firms, or the data, are taking into account Obama's alienating many Jewish voters for his treatment of Israel, black voters for his advocacy of gay marriage, blue collar workers for his positions on energy production, business owners, particularly small business owners for his "you didn't build that" speach, and taxpayers in general for his crony capitalism funding of Solyndra and other now bankrupt "Green Energy" companies. He has also lost the necro-American votes and illegal alien votes in Florida, and perhaps in other states to follow.
The article is good, the headline is terrible and untrue. Guns do not kill people. Guns may be used to kill people; guns may even be used to murder people. But in all cases, it is the gun wielder that kills. In the same manner, SUVs or other vehicles don't kill people, some people who drive motor vehicles kill people. Swimming pools don't kill people, people who can's swim or are impaired some way drown in pools. I have firearms in my home, including handguns. I have owned some of these weapons for several years. Never once has any of these firearms leapt out of its holster or case and shot anyone. Firearms are not inherently evil. They are inanimate objects that various people use for various purposes; some legitimate, some not.

Are Democrats Deserting Obama?

Drew, how can there be tax breaks for the poor? They don't pay income taxes! In fact, nearly 50% of wage earners don't pay taxes. It is such a shame that there is an epidemic of recto-cranial inversion among young leftists. If you ever pull your head out, you will read in the article, that Obama is losing voters in the DEMOCRAT primaries. Are you telling me that the party of slavery, of the ku klux klan, of jim crow, of civil rights opposition, in other words, the Democrats are racist? The second thing you might see is that the economy started its downward spiral once the Democrats got control of congress the last 2 years of W's second term.
Not only was he impeached for perjury, suborning pejury and two other articles of impeachment, if he had been a Republican, he would have been convicted by the Senate and removed from office. As it is, the Democrat controlled Senate at the time demonstrated that the Rule of Law only applies to Republicans, and all liberal Democrats are given a complete pass. Comrade Bubba could have been videotaped raping a baby, and that Senate would have refused to convict and remove him from office.
Jack, by his own words, he was not a very good scholar, even back in high school. If he was not a good scholar in high school, how did he get accepted to Harvard Law except through affirmative action? If he was a scholarly genius in Harvard, why is there not one article by him in their Law Review? How many of his law professors or even fellow students remember him from his time there? If he was a supergenius (or even competent) at Harvard, why does he keep his transcripts sealed? George W Bush presented his transcripts. Algore produced his transcripts. Why hasn't Obama? The only reason he could have is because he was a crappy student at Harvard. Algore had a worse GPA than Bush. I suspect he had a much higher GPA than Ear Leader.
Mr. Katz, it doesn't matter how egregious Obama is in violating his oath of office or betraying America to its enemies or abusing his power. It just doesn't matter. He is protected. He is made of teflon. He is a black, liberal Democrat. He could be videotaped committing murder, stealing old folks' social security checks and raping babies, and it still would not rise to the level of impeachability. Any proceedings in the House towards impeachment would be labelled as "racist" by the leftists of the Democrat party, and the mainstream media would obediently parrot the accusations. Should the House actually garner enough votes to impeach Obama, the Senate, like they did for Clinton, would ignore the evidence and refuse to do their duty.

Mr. Sowell, you are incorrect when you state that it is difficult to impossible to tell when Barak Hussein Obama (mmm mmm mmm) is lying. In fact, it is very easy to tell when he is lying. One only has to use the same method of lie detection one used with Billy Jeff Clinton: are his lips moving? If the answer is "yes", then he is lying. We don't even have to depend on what Obama's depending "on what the meaning of "is" is."
