We are already nonchalant about allowing people to die for lack of a decent health care, and allow girls to struggle through life in miserable jobs because they had to drop out of school to take care of a baby. Why don't you guys propose to protect and take care of people after they're born in exchange for abortion reform?

I simply wanted to apologize for the 'gun nuts' term I just used. Simply my knee-jerk phrase, where I should have perhaps used 'gun affectionados. My apologies for any offence.

This is a very well written article. Thank you Ms. Kieffer for your balance and lack of put downs. I have two questions: What solution do you have for those that are so desperate, that they would risk the very dangerous "back alley" abortions. This is a very real situation confronting many otherwise quite stable women, and before Roe, many women's lives were lost. Is this not a self defense situation? You say, "Killing in the name of freedom does not preserve one’s own freedom". Would you please pass this wisdom on to the many gun nuts who frequent this forum.
It's apparent that there are very few to be found around here.
So you advocate going up against the US military with a 'LaRue Tactical chambered for the .308' is going to handle the tyrant issue? Hmmm.... Wouldn't you be better off with an RPG? Why not a few tactical missiles? The absurd notion that you should have assault weapons to be able to combat governmental tyranny is childish at best. Please grow up, and until you do, leave dangerous tools in the hands of adults who know when to remove them from the hands of the irresponsible.
Very nicely said Hmiller. You will, of course, be attacked viciously because it seems that many of the regular readers here aren't interested in honesty and truth (as evident in the constant dismissive and/or outright hostile attitude toward science, any intellectual, and the majority of the news gathering media).
I think you need to rethink how a progressive income tax works - it's designed to allow those making marginal amounts of money to keep a fair living wage, while those making significantly more than a comfortable living wage, contribute a higher percentage. This gives the low and middle classes a chance.
Prediction: John Ransom's brilliant predictions all come to pass and he'll be given the Nobel Peace Prize for helping to put guns in every classroom in America.

Looks like UltraMan hit too close to home. Another Hitler tactic was to discredit all intellectuals and scientist because they clearly saw through him... Sound a bit like the modern conservative movement?

Admittedly a few bad apples are protected, but this is far better than politicizing our educational system (more than it already is!), and stacking the teaching ranks with lock-step thinking (of whatever political persuasion). This is similar to the idea expressed by Patrick Henry: "I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it". If you think conservatives have a lock on the 'correct' truth, I'm afraid you are as delusional as a liberal who says the same thing.

If you were in charge of my children's teacher, she would have been fired because she dares to teach that the world is billions of years old, and following the US constitution, doesn't teach Christian ideas about science. The teacher's union simply gives teachers a voice and a chance. It has also raised her salary - now she makes only 35% less than others with commiserate education levels (in spite of working 9+ hour days while still taking correcting home to complete). Unions allowed for the creation of a middle class. Are you telling us that you are against the middle class?
