Want to stop abortion?

The richest on earth: mostly right wingers tea party tax cry babies here in the USA:

Set up a fund to take in every unwanted pregnancy child and raise them until 18 plus pay for college and medical insurance. GAURANTEE IT.

oh yeah: also take in right now and raise the estimated one million human beings in the USA waiting to be adopted with no hope of it happening.

This would cost a few billion.

The top 400 who cry about taxes everyday are already worth $1.7 TRILLION as a group. They amassed that with tax rates as is.

So a few billion to raise unwanted human beings is not much.

400 people! That is the front row on the 50 yard line at any game on Sunday.

So do this for your precious life instead of legislating behaviour and abortions will shrink towards zero. And provide all the contraceptives in all States.

Problem solved!

Ohhhhhhh

But these filthy rich whiners are too greedy and selfish to commit to this. Would rather put Mitt and Ryan in your pants, bedroom, tell you how to worship, and cut the richest taxes some more.

THAT IS WHY YOU LOST TUESDAY!

ACA? NOW THAT IS PRO LIFE!

so President Obama supported health care reform because he knew conservatives would vote for him
he supported the dream act for illegal immigrants cause it would get him votes from conservatives like Jan Brewer
he withdrew troops from Iraq because neocons would then vote for him
he supports same sex marriage cause that would get him the evangelical vote
unlike Romney who always kept the same position for at least 60 seconds
He did not withdraw troops from Afghanistans as he PROMISED, instead he sent MORE troops to DIE in the hands of the Taliban.

He support same sex marraige because his wife has a penis.

From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.

Failures and welfare sponges won the elections.

USA lost and will continue to bleed while debt is mounting.

Obama doesnt know what he is doing and doesnt care.

Ask him about fiscal reforms and the dying US troops he'll tell you about his daughters.

Point No. 2 - means you must never underestimate what stupid people can do with their numbers. Thing is theres just too many of them around.

I fully agree with it.
Why didnt Romney take the fight to Obama and ask him about the 2008 election lies (promise) to pull US troops out of Afghanistan within 11 months of taking office?
Why didnt he put it to Americans that Obama sent MORE troops
Theres no such thing as clean campaign, Obama played dirty in those adverts, Romney should have used the empty promises from 2008 to fight back.
GW Bush is not the type that would have let Obama get away with it if he were in Romney's shoes.
Romney's camp should take the blame for the loss. They did not lose because Obama ran a better campaign. Obama failed and the Repuiblicans should have used his failure to outdst him.
Those who say the Republicans were an obstruction and the reason Obama failed are politically immature. That happens all over the world where the houses (Congress and Senate in the case of the US) are split between the parties. Its not the Republicans that said Obama must give bailouts to companies that secure jobs in China, and fail to support small business at home.
Obama should have been nailed to the cross for his dismal failure. Theres a lot of ammunition that could have been used to get this incompetent out of the White House.
He says the best is yet to come? What best, what is it that he thinks he can do which he failed to do in the past four years in an economy that has gotten worse since he took over. The US debt has mounted since Obama took office. He blame Bush for his inability to bring that under control. How can he bring it under control when he hands free money over to companies in what is suppose to be a capitalist society?
Wrong, in 2008 while campaigning he promised to send more troops to Afghanistan which he did.

Spending doesn't reset when the new guy takes over, there was plenty already in place including a couple of unfunded wars.

The stimulis included 287 billion in tax cuts, tax rebates and also tax incentives for small businesses, the back bone of the job creators in this country.

As for your last line, the U.S goverment has a long history of subsidizing corporations(see big oil), this has been going on since long before Obama.

Good to see you are happy with election outcome.[/QUOTE]

I am, because bad economy means less and less money will be pumped into welfare. Its going to get to a point where China cuts the line of credit to the US, thats when shit will hit the fan.

Agro subsidies will go, free / subsidised abortion, free ARVs and free contraceptives will go, food prices will skyrocket moer will fly.

You can kiss those food stamps goodbye.

The US economy is not going to recover.

Obama is re-inforcing the roots of anarchy and he doesnt care about you, he'll simply take off to Indonesia where he grew up under the care of his Indonesian stepfather.

I dont blame those who have taken to forming militia groups in frustration.

Do you really believe that a nonchalant guy like Obama cares? Obama does NOT care about any of you.

Sean Hannity, John Boehner say GOP should tackle immigration reform

Well, that was fast.

Just two days after President Barack Obama sailed to re-election over Mitt Romney, boosted by more than 70 percent of the Latino vote, some Republicans are striking a new tone on illegal immigration.

Conservative Fox News and radio host Sean Hannity said Thursday that his views on immigration have "evolved." Hannity continued:


We've gotta get rid of the immigration issue altogether. It's simple for me to fix it. I think you control the border first, you create a pathway for those people that are here, you don't say you gotta go home. And that is a position that I've evolved on. Because you know what—it just—it's gotta be resolved. The majority of people here—if some people have criminal records you can send 'em home—but if people are here, law-abiding, participating, four years, their kids are born here ... first secure the border, pathway to citizenship ... then it's done. But you can't let the problem continue. It's gotta stop.

Meanwhile, in an interview with ABC News' Diane Sawyer, House Speaker John Boehner said he is "confident" the two parties can agree to a deal on immigration.

"This issue has been around far too long," Boehner said. "A comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I'm confident that the president, myself, others can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all."

Just two years ago, Boehner said it was worth considering amending the U.S. Constitution to end birthright citizenship, because he said it might discourage people from illegally crossing the border. Boehner was also opposed to President George W. Bush's attempt to pass immigration reform.
