Typical Liberal uninform I guess Mediamatter/Thinkprogess hasnít posted it yet!!
The Senate passed a bill raising the debt ceiling that is aimed at averting a government default, clearing the way for President Obama to sign it into law.
The final vote was 74-26. Nineteen Republicans, six Democrats and independent Bernie Sanders of Vermont opposed the measure,
Doesn't matter sheepdip, there's nothing from the House.

BULLMANURE!!!!!!!!
"carol" has every right to opine on the disgusting activity, abortion/murder. While I can understand abortion/murder in the cases of rape, incest or if the mothers health is endangered, I can not and will not agree when abortion/murder os an act of birth control or convenience. Folks should be responsible for their actions.
Peace
Anyone who seeks medical treatment for an unwanted medical condition is acting in a responsible manner.

What I'm guessing you mean, is 'Them gals should keep their damn legs shut'.

Here's my response: don't have sex if you don't want to get a woman pregnant, the corollary of which, is to make sure she wants to be, if you risk impregnating her.
You may roughly translate this as "Keep your damn pants on."

I agree; I think she knew he was changing, her friends said she told them she thought she was losing him, he had started to burn himself with a lighter. No one knows when a psychotic breakdown can happen, it's usually quick and happens in your 20's

Well, to be fair they are trying to sell a bad product and the warranty is horrific, not to mention the all the extra costs thrown in after the purchase.

She probably has reels of film depicting abortions at every fetal stage, from conception on. I imagine her watching them frequently, perhaps providing a play by play for the blank-faced dolls of every size and description, which she calls 'her children', gathered 'round her on the sofa on Movie Night.

Yep, national avg price per gallon of UL reg is $3.25, stock market seems to have settled in at over $13K, McMansion sales are even showing an uptick.

To be fair, food prices, particularly beef are higher than even the experts expected.
