Barack Obama, our next President

No, Let’s Not Turn Schools Into Garrisons

The Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, about which I’ve refrained from commenting for lack of anything useful to say, has occasioned a debate about the need for renewed gun-control legislation at the national level. That’s fine. I’m doubtful that advocates will have much to show, legislatively speaking, after this outcry subsides. And with any luck, mass shootings will continue to be a rare occurrence and schools will remain the statistically safest place children can be.

Such, at any rate, is the reasonable, conservative/civil-libertarian case against overreaction.

Here’s a conservative version of the case for overreaction (via the blogger Econophile):

Arm some teachers and staff members so they can protect themselves and our children. I know this will get a big reaction from those against firearms, but think it through in light of the reality of the issues that I have outlined. It is not possible to prevent these tragic shootings before they happen, so should we leave our children unprotected while some maniac walks around and shoots them at will?

BigHollywood’s John Nolte agreed, tweeting:“Why are schools not treated like airplanes as far as security? Are we going to ban mega-clips and then remove air marhsals [sic]?” And:“Why are airplanes secured with armed personnel but not schools? We’ve stopped hijackings and terrorism. All Left wants tho is gun control.”

So let me see if I have this straight: more gun control is tantamount to creeping tyranny, but succumbing to hysteria and fear and calling for armed teachers is a blow for freedom.

Okaaaaaay.

In other words, the fact that other people with guns were showing up ended the carnage.

Abortion has been around for thousands of years. It was perfectly legal here in the 1700 _ 1800's, look it up, you moron.
Why is it your business to meddle in someone else's very serious business?
Your obsession is borderline psychotic.

Gunner

Nobraina
Queen Latifah
Floriduh

While some of the above are Nobraina sockpuppets, as is his current blue dress, John Galt, many of them left and haven't returned. I give them credit for that.

And DB just returned. At least he tucked his tail between his legs and kept his mouth shut for over a month. I give him credit for that.

They were proven wrong, Obama not only didn't get impeached, he got re-elected.

But they were smart enough to move on.

I came back because I saw the same right wing hatred and racism still going on. I came back to take out the trash.

Based on the low volume of posts from wingnuts of late, I'd say I'm doing a good job.

Some of you losers just can't stop your whining and hate talk.

Until you do, I'll be here. Not all the time, like so many of you, but from time to time....

Correction: we didn't have the media reporting on this problem 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, thirty years ago. We also let loose the crazies 30 years ago, and dumped them out of their safety net into the street, for "financial and humanitarian reasons." 30 years ago, we started medicating our children for their every emotion and oddity.

Incidents like this have been going on since man rose out of the swamp and the jungle, carol. You just didn't have it with dinner every night, before the age of cable and the internet.

"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.

Abortion in the Ancient and Premodern World

A History of Traditional Methods

While modern technology is quite new in historical terms, the practice of abortion and menstrual "regulation" is ancient. Traditional methods have been handed down for hundreds of generations and herbal and other methods have roots in the distant past. It should be noted that many ancient and medieval methods and preparations are extremely risky and many are not at all effective, so experimentation is quite unwise.

We know abortion was practiced in biblical times from the passage in Numbers (note 1) where alleged infidelity is tested by giving an abortifacient potion to an accused pregnant woman. The "bitter water" used to "bring on the curse" may have been quinine or several of other herbal and natural concoctions that are considered emmagogues, or drugs that bring on menstruation.

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.
No one is pro-abortion, carol. Barack Obama is pro-choice. Women need the availability of life saving treatment at any stage of their lives during which it is available. Late term abortion is only available legally, to women who might otherwise die, and those whose fetus is terribly compromised or dead.

Stop acting as if 8-months-pregnant women just wake up one morning and say "Hey - I'm tired of this big lump in the front. I hear they have a surgery for that," and schedule an abortion between getting their nails done, and meeting their gal-pals for lunch.

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.
Having had to retract a few statements of my own on these merry adventures, I applaud YOU, carol.

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.

(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.
http://www.abortion.com/topic.php...
And you'll find on this website second and third trimester abortions by state where the mother's life is not even an issue.

With Obamacare leading to Universal Health women will have an opportunity to have pre natal care and determine which trimester.

If you supported Obamacare leading to universal health care your position on abortion might be worth a listen.
