King himself hoped and looked forward to the day they'd be judged "not by the color their skin but by the content of their character".

Guess what buddy? Today, they're being judged by the content of their character....trouble is, it's not a rosy picture, mainly due to crime which is often violent.

In America, the average black man has only himself to blame. The longer he stays in denial, the miserable he's gonna remain.

In this story, an artist, named Niggle, lives in a society that does not much value art. Working only to please himself, he paints a canvas of a great Tree with a forest in the distance. He invests each and every leaf of his tree with obsessive attention to detail, making every leaf uniquely beautiful. Niggle ends up discarding all his other artworks, or tacks them onto the main canvas, which becomes a single vast embodiment of his vision.
After a time Niggle turned towards the Forest. Not because he was tired of the Tree, but he seemed to have got it all clear in his mind now, and was aware of it, and of its growth, even when he was not looking at it. As he walked away, he discovered an odd thing: the Forest, of course, was a distant Forest, yet he could approach it, even enter it, without its losing that particular charm.

Funding abortions with tax dollars creates a culture of death in American society. If you love life, pay for your own abortion!

and I guess we can gut food stamps and tell folk to pay for their own food too! I thought insurance could be used to fund an abortion. that's not tax payers dollars!

death is a part of life!! there is no one without the other.

Turritopsis nutricula, the immortal jellyfish, is a hydrozoan whose medusa, or jellyfish, form can revert to the polyp stage after becoming sexually mature. It is the only known case of an animal capable of reverting completely to a sexually immature, colonial stage after having reached sexual maturity as a solitary stage. It does this through the cell development process of transdifferentiation.
Cell transdifferentiation is when the jellyfish "alters the differentiated state of the cell and transforms it into a new cell". In this process the medusa of the immortal jellyfish is transformed into the polyps of a new polyp colony. First, the umbrella reverts itself and then the tentacles and mesoglea get resorbed. The reverted medusa then attaches itself to the substrate by the end that had been at the opposite end of the umbrella and starts giving rise to new polyps to form the new colony.
Theoretically, this process can go on indefinitely, effectively rendering the jellyfish biologically immortal.

When a bacterial cell divides into two daughter cells and those two cells divide into four more daughters, then 8, then 16 and so on, the result, biologists have long assumed, is an eternally youthful population of bacteria. Bacteria, in other words, don't age -- at least not in the same way all other organisms do. Bacteria are said to be biologically immortal, but only at the level of the colony. The two daughter bacteria resulting from cell division of a parent bacterium can be regarded as unique individuals or as members of a biologically "immortal" colony.

Hydras are a genus of simple, freshwater animals possessing radial symmetry and no post-mitotic cells. The fact that all cells continually divide allows defects and toxins to be diluted. It has been suggested that hydras do not undergo senescence, and, as such, are biologically immortal.[9] However, this does not explain how hydras are consequently able to maintain telomere lengths.

Planarian flatworms (both sexual and asexual) appear to exhibit an ability to live indefinitely and have an "apparently limitless [telomere] regenerative capacity fueled by a population of highly proliferative adult stem cells".

Although the premise that biological aging can be halted or reversed by foreseeable technology remains controversial, nascent research into developing possible therapeutic interventions is already underway. Among the principle drivers of international collaboration in such research is the SENS Research Foundation, a non-profit organization that advocates a number of what it claims are plausible research pathways that might lead to engineered negligible senescence in humans.

Under Obamacare, all health insurance has to pay for abortions and contraception. That's why our insurance rates are rising.

Show a state where health insurance rates are falling. We agree about greed, the government is taking more control of the economy.

Raising spending on contraceptives and abortion means higher rates. Restricting health insurance payments for procedures unrelated to health lowers rates. Simple economics.

Repeal Obamacare.

Abortions and contraceptives cost far LESS than pregnancy and childbirth (and paying out for resultant children.) Pregnancy is a health factor, and thus so is any treatment related to it.

Repealing Obabacare would be the insane thing to do. How do you feel about people with "pre-existing" conditions not being able to be insured? Would you really sacrifice that? And health insurance rates are always increasing. That's nothing new. How much of the increase is attributed to obama care? a very small amount.

How can you deny Obamacare forcing insurance companies to pay for abortions and contraception, when they were free to negotiate before; creates higher insurance costs? If a cost or service is added to insurance by government mandate, then the cost of insurance is increased. This is simple economics. Greed has nothing to do with mathematics.

Pre-existing can't be insured any more than you could gamble on a race game that has already been played and the cards revealed. It's not the government's job to provide health care, food or other basic necessities; except for dire circumstance. Have you seen the costs for those pre-existing 'insurance' programs?

Repeal Obamacare, make health spending tax deductible and cut regulations that interfere with free market prices between you and your health provider.

Let's say an insured woman gets pregnant. Which do you think the carrier will want to pay--$500 or less for an abortion, or thousands for prenatal care, childbirth, and the addition of a baby to the policy? The costs go up astronomically if the birthing goes wrong or the baby has health issues.

At least half of the population has some form of pre-existing condition, be it cancer to high blood pressure to depression and beyond. BTW--"pre-existing" is not the same as recurrent.
