Men should have no say in the abortion debate. Anyway, if men could get pregnant there would be an abortion clinic in every hardware store.

What a DS remark. As compassionate human beings, men care about their children very deeply. The problem lies in whether or not the woman understands or has the capacity to understand that what she is aborting is a child. The deeper problem is that society today has lead women down a path of lies and half-truths to convince them that the child they are aborting is nothing more than a blob of flesh no more significant than a wart that was caused by the union of a man's spermatozoa and a woman's egg. Women who speak like supercrap are just plain too stupid to be taken seriously since they do not understand the human reproduction cycle and the truth of the life they would abort.

I will agree that government, especially the federal government, should have nothing to do with abortion.

It should not regulate, fund, enable nor opine on abortion. Abortion is simply not the federal government's domain.

Similarly the federal government should not be involved in ANY aspect of medicine, it's simply not part of the federal government's function...nor should it be.

1) Working hard, being self-reliant and taking responsibility for your own life are good for you and will make you much happier than having too much leisure time, being overly dependent and giving others responsibility for your life.

2) The more a behavior is rewarded with attention, fame, sympathy or money, the more of it we'll see. We recognize this almost instinctively when it comes to good behaviors, but we also tend to almost habitually block it out when it comes to behaviors we don't want to encourage.

3) There's nothing shameful about being poor -- but, if you stay...
