When you were pregnant and people asked how the baby was doing, did you correct them and call it a fetus?
No. I was purposefully pregnant. My children were joyfully anticipated. But just because I considered both my sons to be 'babies' in my body, doesn't mean every woman feels that way. And not every woman is cut out to be a mother.

If a woman doesn't want with all her heart to be a mother, why in the name of the Divine would you want to insist she become one?

Unwanted kids have it pretty rough in this world, you know.

One more time you lied. The thing you do best. You just claimed you ran "DBWriter" off. As I said the only thing you run off is your mouth.
You lie!!

DB left after Rmoney lost the election on his own.

He had more class than you did. He accepted that he had been wrong, and stayed away for over a month, knowing there wasn't much he could say.

Contrast that to you, who's never said anything useful, just whine about others and obsess over your anal compulsion.

You never go away. You're like a parasite.

Running the leanest government in decades is "big spending"?

You just repeat soundbites like they want you too, you obviously never look at the numbers.

The president can't borrow a dime, thats the purview of congress alone.

" This story focuses on the Pearl High School Shooting of 1997, possibly one of the earliest mass murders committed by a student at a school in the US.
Sixteen year old Luke Woodham was distraught due to the fact that his girlfriend of the time had broken up with him, so he started by beating and stabbing his mother to death at their home. Woodham then took a lever action .30-30 hunting rifle with him to his school, Pearl High. He made no attempt to hide or conceal the rifle. He entered the school and began shooting students. Two people were killed and seven others wounded. The first person killed was Woodham’s ex-girlfriend. After she was shot Woodham began shooting indiscriminately at anyone in the area.
Woodham knew that the police would soon be on their way, but he had no plans to allow himself to be captured or kill himself (as is popular with many mass murderers). Woodham had planned to drive to nearby Pearl Junior High School and continue his shooting spree while police were occupied with the confusion at Pearl High.
Woodham successfully made his way to his car well before police arrived. However, Woodham would never make it to Pearl Junior High.
Assistant Princiapl Joel Myrick heard the shooting when it began and immediately went into action. After getting several students to safety and figuring out what was going on Myrick knew what he had to do. Myrick had a Colt .45 handgun in his truck. Due to gun laws Myrick was not allowed to carry his gun on his person. Myrick ran to his vehicle, retrieved the gun, loaded it, and headed back to the school.
Woodham was already in the parking lot, getting into his car. Myrick confronted Woodham in the parking lot, held his gun to the boy’s head and managed to subdue Woodham until police arrived.
There is simply no telling how many lives were saved by this educator who took steps to make sure that he was prepared for any situation and to use a weapon when it was necessary to save the lives of others."
School shootings go way, way back-

It is a sad state of affairs that law-abiding Americans have to continually fight for their Constitutional Rights of self-defense while criminals can do as they wish with a wink-and-a-nod from the Eric Holders and Boy Messiahs of this world.
But fight we must.
There lies the issue of constitutional rights.The President is damned if you do, and damned if you don't. There is ongoing issues with so called abiding citizens with guns who are mentally ill or has a loved one who is mentally ill with access to these weapons. What is a law abiding citizen doing with an automatic weapon anyway. Hunting rifles are one thing, but no one has any business on the street with automatic weapons that can shell off 30 rounds in one shot. I think that public safety over rules your constitutional rights and freedoms. The law needs to change asap.

In our society we call them babies until we start talking about abortion. It makes it easier to perform the act. I gave no problem with abortion being legal. I do have a problem with abortion being used as a matter of convenience. There's a waiting period to buy a gun, why not abortion (i'm not talking 48hrs). And all options should be discussed with the woman during that period.

Here's something i personally have dealt with. Father's rights...abortion was held over my head to control me for months, and yes, i did whatever necessary to make sure my son was born. There should be some kind of mechanism to protect father's rights.

Charles Whitman 1963:

Based on his analyses, Duwe characterizes the period of 1966 to 1999 as the second wave of mass murder. This period is marked as a turbulent time in American history; a period specifically characterized by racism and extreme poverty and heightened social activism. The earlier part of this “era” belonged to the Warren Court and its major controversial decisions that emphasized the rights of individuals. According to the data, there was an increase in drug-related mass killings, which was part of a larger trend of mass killings that was increasing—felony- related killings. Gang-related killings are also discussed. During the 1990s, the U.S. also witnessed an increase in the number of high-profile workplace-related mass public shootings. With the exception of the school shootings in the 1990s, public shootings are rare among offenders under the age of 18. According to Duwe, youthful offenders are more typically involved in progeny familicides or felony-related massacres.

So, if you really want to blame something try the phony "war" on drugs. In any case, you can make no correlation with Roe v. Wade.

What'd the guy do??

Capture the kid in th eparking lot??

After he was done killing??

He couldn't have stopped it, unless he was exactly where th eshooter was, which he wasn't, per the story. He was elsewhere, helping students to safety.

At best, he could have shot at the kid as he was exiting.

You nitwits with your cowboy dreams don't have a clue.

It's magical thinking, where the good guys win.

Reality indicates otherwise. Ask the two cops just shot in Kansas. They were armed, right?? Still got killed, right??

President Barack Obama is pro-abortion at any stage of pregnancy.
Millions and millions of unborn babies at all stages of pregnancy have been aborted over the past 35 years.
No tears for them.
There you go lying through your teeth again. Somebody would have to be at least as sick as you to be "pro-abortion". The correct term, and you know this, is "pro-choice". You've never heard the argument from anybody but the sick fcks you admire frame the argument any other way.

I'm probably going to regret this, but I was wrong about the applause.
Listening to that part of the service while on the computer, I heard the president being introduced and then the applause. When I turned around to look at the television, it looked as if he were making the speech at another location with another audience.
So I was completely wrong about this. If the grieving families and the townspeople applauded the president in that way, then I was wrong. Flat wrong.
I was wrong about that and wrong for assuming he made the speech somewhere else. I apologize for all my posts pertaining to this.
Good for you.

In Roe v. Wade the Court set up a framework: During the first trimester of pregnancy, a woman's privacy right is strongest and the state may not regulate abortion for any reason.
During the second trimester, the state may regulate abortion only to protect the health of the woman.
During the third trimester, the state may regulate or prohibit abortion to promote its interest in the potential life of the fetus except where abortion is necessary to preserve the woman's life or health. ...
Doe v.
(If this site didn't post correctly, I'll try again.)
However, there is nothing in the following website that says anything about the mother's health in second trimester abortions.
And you'll find on this website second and third trimester abortions by state where the mother's life is not even an issue.
The is a medical fact sheet the last one is just more of your sick friends who have no problem lying to you.

The list is even longer if you factor in other types of weapons.

Schools are targets both here and abroad. yes, it's Wiki, but the majority of stories are sourced. Sadly enough.
