Father Paddy was downhill and to the right of Hannibal and when he sobered up enough to realize he was drowning he reached out in the darkness, stabbed his hand through Hannibal's box and grabbed him by his throat, "Hannibal, Hannibal! We've got to get out of here!" Fred reacted the way you might imagine and ripped the hand off his throat and cowered in the corner at what appeared to be a Deus ex Machina of some kind! He was terrified and for a second he lost his hold on the I-pad which began to float and drift away from him.

Fred laid in his box and listened as the rain fell steadily on his "roof." "It wouldn't be so bad if I died tonight," he thought, and wrapped the newspaper more tightly around himself. He shielded the machine as best he could and stabbed at it occasionally but each time he did his fingers resisted and he couldn't understand it.
He'd met carol on topix some months before and she'd been so... kind, so... sympathetic... in his mind he could almost see her: a small, darkish woman with bright grey eyes and a bright smile, Hannibal could almost taste her sweet breath. "I love you, carol," he mumbled, and out of nowhere he heard a voice, "No you don't Hannibal, she's not real. Only God is real." "Who said that?" Fred said reflexively, "get out of my brain!"
The letters appeared on his screen... "I love you too, Fred." carol. Fred realized he was being tested and resolved to speak only to the woman who loved him. Surely the other voice was The Devil himself and must be denied.
"Carol," Fred typed, "I think I'm losing my mind." He hit Enter and waited... after a few minutes the tiny beautiful letters appeared again, "Have faith, Fred, you must believe or none of this will ever be real. God loves you, Fred, he won't desert you in your hour of need." Fred smiled and it calmed him. It calmed him despite the realization that water was rising in his box. Fred didn't realize it but Hurricane Sandy had just come ashore and life was about to change for him. And not for the better.
Fred: "Sailing, sailing, over the bounding Maine."

FEMA has finally begun setting up in Staten Island...SIX DAYS after the hurricane struck. So far 19 lives and counting have been lost there, including two young children, ages two and four. WHERE THE HELL IS OBAMA!!! Oh yeah, fundraising in Ohio. Why isn't the press crucifying him like they would a Republican president? Why aren't the people in New York and New Jersey and the rest of the country outraged by his lack of response? This event is Obama's Katrina! The northeast is practically destroyed! No food, no fuel, no power. Obama has completely dropped the ball during this disaster for his own benefit. Benghazigate then Sandygate, all in the span of 2-1/2 months? When are people realize that this guy is totally incompetent? WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

Fred bolted upright and ran his head through the boxtop without realizing it. There beside him was a bedraggled Priest standing in his underwear and white collar and nothing else and the Priest grabbed Fred's hand and Fred clutched the sopping I-pad and together they ran down the alley seeking higher ground, a higher calling... a way to survive.

There were five other men in the alley that night, but they were drunk or infirmed or deep in a psychosis and the two men ignored them in any event and concentrated on saving themselves. Fred and Paddy ran through the streets like stricken creatures and as the rain lashed down they clutched at each other and ran terrified toward they knew not what.

Fred followed the Priest because what else could you do? the Priest dragged Fred along behind him because... well, he didn't know why he did it? It was as if a voice in his head told him to do so.

Real, living, infants, who need love and care, shelter, food, water, diapers, clothing, medicines, etc. etc. etc.
The current adoption paradigm falls far short of capability to place them in loving homes. If they're not white, healthy, and under a year old, they don't get readily adopted, especially in states where the pool of adoptive parents is halved by laws prohibiting single people and/or gays from doing so.
I don't think anyone who hasn't been personally aborted should make the decision for others,but that is just my opinion. As far as your argument, we can always legalize infanticide and the problem is solved. Then we can deal with those seniors that drive so slow. Abortion, infanticide and forced euthanasia .Sounds like a left wing wet dream.

Let's look at the difference bewtween Bush and Obama.

1. Bush lied us into an unnecessary war, Obama didn't.
2. Bush outed a CIA agent, Obama didn't.
3. Bush approved military torture of prisoners, regardless of innocence. Obama did not.
4. Bush was in charge when America suffered its worst terror attack. No major terror attacks under Obama.
5. Bush led America to its worst recession since 1929. Obama is cleaning it up.

That's all you need to know.

Now run away behind a cloud of GOP squid ink.

As for Benghazi, that's all smoke and mirrors, GOP smear style.
Yeah, no one died at Watergate. But burglary is still a criminal offense. And the purpose of that burglary was to gain inside information on Democrat activities in order to disrupt their campaign.
Even more interesting is that the Watergate burglars were all ex-CIA. Well, "retired" if you care to believe it.
Which leads to the conclusion that the CIA works to disrupt and undermine Democrat activities. No surprise. It's the same thing they've done overseas to political parties they felt were not "right" enough.
Whoa. Quit giving George Bush credit for 9/11/01. Clinton caused it by not doing much after the first attack and others. Now, by killing the economy, I'm finishing the job started by al qaeda.

Watergate had no effect on the 1972 election.....George McGovern would have lost in 1972 even if Jesus Christ had returned to Earth and endorsed him.....

in 2012, the CIA is covering up for Obama...after President Romney takes office, it will be necessary to clean house....
