Perhaps kids should be taught how to avoid gunfire. Zigzag class starts in 15 min, after Judge Wapner.
Well they had them hiding under their desks in the event of an atom bomb attack back in the 1950's(Flack and a few others still living there) so I suppose a zigzagging class makes about as much sense.

So why exactly is everyone fighting about abortion again? A Pew poll released Wednesday found that not only do a majority of Americans want to keep abortion legal, but also that just 44 percent of those under 30 even knew the landmark Roe v. Wade case dealt with right to terminate a pregnancy. As the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that decriminalized abortion approaches, the poll found that 63 percent of respondents said they did not want the court to overturn the decision—a number unchanged from 10 or even 20 years ago, despite numerous efforts by many states to limit abortion rights. In fact, the poll found that a majority, 53 percent, of those surveyed said that “abortion is not that important compared to other issues.”

Isn't that the kind of people Obama sought out in college?

Like-minded people, I mean?

In his book, he wrote: "To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. THE MARXIST PROFESSORS and structural feminists."

Oh, yes, he did say that...

The President was near tears when he spoke about one of the children murdered at SandyHook; her parents gave him one of her paintings that he hung in his office; very touching. A President who cares about the American people, women and children, gays, veterans, immigrants....Imagine that?
I agree, it's all very sad. Giving the total mess left behind after eight years of incompetence Obama has managed to straighten the ship, with absolutly no help from the Republicans. The Republicans profess to love our military, our children and country yet they do nothing for the betterment. How anyone can be and remain blind to this is mind boggling. You have a good day lily.

PDupont should ask himself WWJD?
After the horror of 9/11, I don't think turning the other cheek applies here.
Could be wrong.
By the way, President Theodore Roosevelt defended the practice. "The enlisted men began to use the old Filipino method: the water cure," he wrote in a 1902 letter. "Nobody was seriously damaged."
Wonder if Obama would have threatened to prosecute good ole' Teddy?
Also, would PDupont pour water up someone's nose if he knew he or a loved one would be decapitated otherwise?
It's really all about perspective - or priorties.
Liberals aren't known for common sense. PDupont is a textbook example of one of these Mr. Magoo types.

ANSWER:
Because it is not nor never was about health care!!!
Obamacare is only about two things:
#1. Destroying another industry: Health Insurance.
#2. Controlling people's behavior. Typical liberal agenda. See? All liberals want to control you because they think they know better.
Why gives Liberals the ILLUSION that they know better?
1. They believe they have "good intentions" of fairness.
2. They are in college or have some college training.
Those two reasons hypnotize them.
In the mean time: Conservatives have five qualities:
#1. Know what hard work is
#2. Have personal responsibility. So they do not need a nanny state to tell them what is good for them. They can figure it out by themselves.
#3. Have common sense because they live in reality. They know the world is unfair and they deal with it. They do not deny the reality of unfairness, they welcome it.
#4. Respect other people's choices even if they choose to hurt themselves as long as they hurt no one who refuses to be hurt.
#5. Love the freedom to success, fail or attempt to success or fail.
I appreciate your response but was hoping someone on the left would have answers to those questions too. And what Van Susteren said:

The whole idea of everybody being in is everybody's contributing to lower the cost of health care. So if everybody opts out - plus, we've got the problem that the president through the HHS has issued thousands of waivers - everyone's jumping ship! They're going to leave about five of us left standing paying for this!

Obama has recieved more death threats than any President in history.

You don't hear about many because they don't want idiots like you playing 'copy cat'.

The kids at Sidwell School are children of politicians and diplomats.

The school is likely a #1 target for many extremists.

And if you're stupid enough to believe your children require the protection of the President's children, you're likely to be a dues paying member of a hate group: the NRA.

Seems Sidwell is quite popular with Presidents and other pols.

----------

"" Both of United States President Barack Obama's daughters, Sasha and Malia, attend Sidwell, which has been described as "the Harvard of Washington's private schools".[1] Vice President Joe Biden's grandchildren also attend the school.[2] Previously, President Theodore Roosevelt's son Archibald, Richard Nixon's daughter Tricia, Bill Clinton's daughter Chelsea Clinton, and Vice President Al Gore's son, Albert Gore III, all graduated from Sidwell Friends.""

As I said before; we'll all be long dead before another Republican gets near the White House. I'm proud of the President and disgusted with the complete lack of empathy on the part of the Republicans.

Again, we, i.e. conservatives, know this to be true.

Maybe I just haven't gone back far enough yet to find someone on the left who addressed that post.

But thanks anyway...
