Glad you moved on from your earlier ridiculous comments about crime that you are ignorant of.
During the MSNBC debate pre-game show on Tuesday night, Chris Matthews brought his usual measured approach to the Romney-Ryan abortion platform:

There's a grand canyon of difference between Obama, who's very pro-choice, and, for example, the Republican ticket this year, which would give 14th amendment rights, whatever that means, life, liberty, and property rights, to a fetus that had just been - or rather, an egg that had just been fertilized, right after sex, if you will. And to have that notion that that would be a person under this personhood thing that Ryan's pushing, and under the 14th Amendment rights, the platform that Romney's running on. This is extremism!...It's almost like Sharia. You're saying to the country, we're going to operate under a religious theory, under a religious belief. We're going to run our country this way, to the point of making a woman's decision to have an abortion, her reproductive rights, as criminal, perhaps murderous.The quote went largely unnoticed until Wednesday night, when it became the top trending story on Fox News online.

What? I have never heard that phrase in my life. What kind of father tells his son "some girls rape so easy?"
What about advising his son not to try to rape underaged girls? To respect his and their bodies? The father is obviously a pig and has no regard for women. The Republican way
"silly"
You on occasion can be very sick. Very sick.
I am a conservative and your statement above that republicans/conservative men are pigs with no regard for women. The republican way, is absolute bullmanure and it is offensive to millions upon millions. You lump deviant behavior with political belief. That is absolute bullmanure. Political leaning is not a factor. Liberals and conservatives and middle of the roaders may be sexual abusers.

How the f**k did Obama keep a straight face when saying this?
"I believe that the free enterprise system is the greatest engine of prosperity the world’s ever known.
I believe in self-reliance and individual initiative and risk takers being rewarded."
What a load of reelection-inspired bullshit.
He believes all of this.
He also believes it's his duty to redistribute the wealth of others, keep them working as slaves and share the fruits of their labor with the less industrious.

Some might reasonably wonder why the GOP war persists when union power has already been so greatly reduced. In the mid-20th century, 40 percent of private-sector workers belonged to unions; today, just 7 percent do. But the Republican struggle continues for two reasons. When it comes to elections, unions are still the most potent mobilizers of the Democratic vote — getting minorities to the polls and persuading members of the white working class to vote Democratic. Indeed, Republican gains among working-class whites (whom they carried by an unprecedented 63 percent to 33 percent in 2010) are, above all, the result of the deunionization of that class. An analysis of exit polling over the past 30 years shows that unionized white working-class men vote Democratic at a rate 20 percent higher than their non-union counterparts. For political reasons, Republicans are determined to de-unionize workers even more.

There’s another reason, too. The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis reports that in the third quarter, wages as a share of gross domestic product were the lowest they’ve been since 1929, and compensation (that includes health insurance) as a share of GDP was at its lowest point since 1955. Corporate profits as a share of GDP, by contrast, are the highest they’ve been since 1929. The destruction of private-sector unions has redistributed income to the rich, which is the Republican Party’s raison d’etre.

Which is why the Republican war on unions — which is also the Republican war on the 99 percent — rolls on.

Is it just a coincidence that as union membership has declined so has the middle class?

Just asking.

<quoted text>That's crazy, he should get 90% of the union vote. Makes no sense, Republicans if they had their way would abolish unions completely.
Obamacare will reduce the medical benefits for many union members, whose coverage is considered a "Cadillac" plan....plus, intelligent people realize that all taxpayers will face tax increases under a second Hussein Obama term.....the rich just don't produce enough revenue....

"False Rape Charges: More Common Than People Think"
Why would anyone falsely accuse another person of rape? The most common answer usually reveals some element of revenge, for something done to the accuser that she (or he, believe it or not,) is angry or enraged over. A study conducted on this subject in the Journal Archives of Sexual Behavior,(Vol. 23, No. 1, 1994,) reported that false accusers were commonly motivated by a need for an alibi or a desire for revenge.

Some girls "cry rape so easy", Homer...if you read the entire context which you, yourself, posted.
Young girls will sometimes panic when facing the wrath of their parents.
You're not paying attention, and I hope it's not on purpose.
Sadly so many mens lives have been totally ruined
by the senseless accusation of rape..DNA has saved
many men,but after years of suffering both incarceration
and the segregation,in fear of their lives they are not
even fit for anything upon release..these charges must
be throughly investigated...because of the horrendous

As soon as he turned over the scripting of a massive piece of social legislation to (none other) than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and then went off to play golf or go on another vacation, we realized we were in big trouble.
We had elected a man with absolutely no leadership abilities.
You're such a vicious, racist liar--I have lost all respect for you. I hope after Mitt is elected he sends your daughter to work twelve hours a day, seven days a week for 99 cents an hour in that Chinese factory he owns...you'd be too old and slow to even have your "binder" considered.

Gunner, you were against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, who do you think is more likely to lead us into a war against Iran? Or are you for a war with Iran?
the weakness of Hussein Obama is more likely to lead to war than would a strong stance....like Reagan standing against the Soviet Union in the 1980s.....

tyrants like KGB Putin and the Iranian leader eat wimps like Hussein Obama for lunch....
