He was scheduled to retire at the end of June anyway....a safe, ineffective move by the Great Pretender.
And we would have had: -a truly transparent administration -a Commander-in-Chief who would stand behind his troops -fiscal responsibility -a lower national debt -more freedom for businesses to create jobs -tighter borders and no automatic amnesty for law-breakers -no IRS scandal -no AP scandal -no Fast & Furious scandal -no Eric Holder -no Janet Napolitano -no Nancy Pelosi -greater faith in God across the country See what you stay-at-home voters gave up?

Idiot.
No, this is what happens with legal abortion. This hell hole clinic was perfectly legal, had been inspected by the proper authorities, found to be filthy, substandard and in violation of several health codes, but left in place to retain "access" to abortions for poor women. For almost 40 years, this butcher killed, with impunity, an estimated 15,000 babies. He kept bits and pieces of them in shoeboxes and old yogurt containers in a freezer. And it was all legal (except the late-term killings).
“Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.”
You obviously don't understand "choice". I am pro-responsibility. Every choice comes with a concurrent responsibility. If a woman chooses to have sex, she also chooses the possibility of becoming pregnant. Her responsibility at that point is to the helpless person she is supporting. Actions have consequences, and our responsibility is to deal with them, not to ignore or try to avoid them.

Actually, it does happen occasionally, My daughter had to have an abortion at 10 weeks, as a result of acute pancreatitis, necessary gall bladder surgery, and epilepsy, which required drugs that would have killed or damaged the baby. She didn't want to do it, after 17 years still feels awful about it, but is grateful that she was able to have 2 more healthy children afterward. Her case was unusual, but odd things do happen occasionally. Never say never.

You seem confused by the whole "choice" thing. Let me explain. When a woman says "yes" to sex, she has made a choice. Deciding to kill the results of that choice is not a "choice", it's evading the consequences of the first choice. The only times when there is even a bit of justification for that would be if the woman chose "no" in the first place, but was forced (rape), or if, during the course of a pregnancy, it becomes apparent that carrying the child will severely hurt the woman. But even in those cases, the rights of the child need to be considered. Adequate physical, emotional and mental support for the mother, and care for the child if needed, should always be available locally. A child is not a "tragedy", he/she is a person.

And I've tried to price compare by the shelf tags at the grocery, and when I've actually done the math, found them to be, in most cases, wildly wrong. While it's tedious to check everything while I'm shopping, it's the only way to assure I'm getting the most for my money. But the cost is increased by the increased time I have to spend shopping. :(
May I share that? I've never seen it put so succinctly.
