"requiring the photo ID in the Nov. 4 election, where roughly 600,000 voters, disproportionately black and Latino, lack acceptable forms of ID." Here's the problems I have with the logic of the lower courts, and those 600k voters; the Texas voter ID law was enacted May 2011, over 3 years ago. It's not like this was some secret legislation enacted in the backrooms of the State House at 2 in the morning so why did whomever that sued the state wait so long to bring this to the court? Why did they wait till 2014 to litigate, why didn't they do it last year when SCOTUS threw out the provision that allowed the Dept of Injustice to enforce the Voting Rights Act and the Texas AG announced the new ID law would be enforced this year? The 600k voters have had over a year to obtain an appropriate ID; and they still have a couple of weeks to do so; but since they're too lazy to make the effort to get just One of Seven valid ID's they don't deserve to vote. The common thread connecting Texas, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Ohio is that the left waited til the last minute so to speak to bring those voter ID laws to the court, instead of last year. Kind of reminds me of when Algore had the Florida Supreme Court invalidate sections of the states voting law After the election in an effort to win the state, then blamed Bush for going to SCOTUS to overturn the states ruling.

"Protesters Fail to Deter Pro-lifers From Rallying at DC’s Planned Parenthood" Probably because some of the Pro-Lifers were CCW holders and none of the pro-aborts were. Fact of the matter is our side is not violent, doesn't have to use inflammatory language or outright lies to convince the public. We don't have to assassinate the character of those we oppose on the left, all we have to do is point out the facts, the specifics of their agenda and people turn away. The left has to; I will say Must, lie to further their agenda, we don't. Which is why we must be demonized, demeaned, diminished. I think time will tell. Protests like this will eventually prove the point; no abortion is acceptable.

Don't 'Vote for the Candidate'

Exactly. Regardless of whether Romney ran against Obola or leftist ideology too many people didn't vote for him because he was the establishment pick, not conservative enough. By not supporting Romney they placed a defacto vote for Obola and got him re-elected. Yet can anyone on our side give one cogent argument as to why Romney wouldn't have been the better president? No. In the primaries I support the most conservative candidate running, in the general I vote for the republican, even if I have to hold my nose. It's a lot easier to sway the mind of a moderate republican on policy when they're in office, in Town Hall meetings, letter writing and telephone campaigns than it is to sway a leftist dem.
“In Michigan, over 225,000 folks have lost their insurance" Well, the important stat here would be how many women have lost their insurance, and how many single moms lost their insurance because of Obolacare. Another important stat would be how many Michigan women have lost their job because of Obolacare. Combine those in a response ad and it's golden.
A liberal woman putting her mouth where the money is. Now there's a twist. It's not rape if you take the money first, it's something else. He paid her five grand, what has she got down there, a golden fleece? Is she a victim of the "war on women", or was she just trying to close the "wage gap"? Racism: Over charging a Real African for a night in the (Y). To some women size does matter. The size of the check. I guess "Once you go black" is a myth started by a liberal white woman. "Hey, I got a million of 'em": Rodney Dangerfield.
Regarding modern unions Comrade Bill, their not the Buick your dad owned. Back when unions first started they did serve a valuable purpose for average workers. They helped to improve working conditions, work place safety, increase worker pay, protect workers from arbitrary termination. Their role in politics was to get work place safety laws and child labor laws enacted. But that was then, 80 years ago. Today it's a whole different story, socially, politically, and technologically. Bill mentions the decline in union membership. But why the decline if unions are so great for the worker? Right to work laws for one reason. These laws alloy employees to either voluntarily join a union or voluntarily pay union dues. Obviously when workers have a choice some chose to opt out. They don't feel the need to be represented by a union. Another reason, where unions use to push for work place safety, workers now have OSHA, making it possible for workers to report safety issues directly to the government. There's technology. 80 years of technological advances has eliminated many factory jobs once performed by under or minimally educated employees by automating them. One major benefit of automation is that it now takes the place of a human in highly dangerous jobs. cont'd below
